December Bella Box – Opening & Review

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. This is the first month that I decided to sign up to Bella Box and I am so excited with what I received. I watched a lot of unboxings before I finally signed up and I thought I would share as well; I am also going to include what my samples are worth and if I would actually use them.

For those of you that don’t know, Bella Box is a monthly beauty subscription box where you can a minimum of 5 sample size items. The great thing about this box though is that you are able to receive full size items occasionally, which is awesome.

 

Stylondon Eye Shadow Palette – Sloane $17.00

I was pretty excited to receive this eye shadow palette and was very happy to get a full palette from this box. I normally do not go for more affordable eye shadow palettes as normally I find they are not very good and would prefer to pay for better quality. I am looking forward to seeing if this palette is going to be good or not. I do really like the colours and found that they are much more interesting shades in person rather than in photos.

 

La Roche-Posay/Anthelios Ultra Light Tinted Fluid SPF50+ – $3.47

December Bella Box 4

I have never really tried any facial sunscreens before and have been meaning to. As I am a ginger, sun care is very important for me and normally I just use sunscreen under my makeup, but I do find that it doesn’t work too well as my makeup tends to slide around. I am looking forward to seeing how this product goes. A full size is 50ml and retails for $28.95; I do think that is a bit expensive, but we will see if it is good.

 

Dream Dots – $19.99

This is my second full size item in this box and I am extremely happy with that. This box has 24 dots in it and basically you place the dot over a break out and leave it on over night. In the morning, after using these dots, you are supposed to visibly notice a difference in your breakout. I don’t break out very much and so something like this would be great for me as it is affordable, but should help with the odd breakout. I have tried one already and I did notice a difference which is awesome.

 

Justice Professional Shampoo and Conditioner – $8.00

December Bella Box 3

I next received this shampoo and conditioner which did count as two samples which at first I was bummed about, but then I kind of thought, well you would buy them separately at the shops, so that is valid. This brand is the Just Cuts owned brand. I have had my hair cut and washed from there before and really loved the way my hair felt after wards. I normally buy just shampoo and conditioner from the chemist (drug store) so it will be interesting to see if salon shampoo is better.

 

Zuii Certified Organic Flora Foundation Primer – $1.74

December Bella Box 9

This item was classed as a bonus item, which I believe is usually a tiny sample, but doesn’t actually count as one of the five samples. Now, for me personally, I don’t believe in face primers as I don’t believe they do anything for me. I also hate these little sachets as I find them hard to use and you only really get one use from them. I probably won’t use this sample, but I will try and make an effort to use it up. The fact I don’t really love this sample is okay with me, considering it is only a bonus item.

Box Breakdown:

  • Value – $50.21
  • Samples – 5 + 1 bonus
  • Full Size Products – 2
  • How many will I actually use? – 5
  • Value of Products I will use? $48.47

 

Overall, I really loved my first experience of the Bella Box. I only paid $17.95 for my box and yet I got roughly $50 worth of product which is just fantastic. I really did like the things I received in the box and they were definitely things that I wouldn’t normally go for, which was the reason I picked up this subscription. I have heard that sometimes Bella Box makes their first boxes great and they do go down hill as the subscription goes on, so we will just have to wait and see. I can’t wait for next months box.

  1. Primer is great if you are doing a full face of makeup for a shoot/special event. Perhaps cause I am so old I notice the difference 😂
    Sunscreen is a must though – always buy a moisturizer with sunscreen in it and you can’t go wrong!!!!
