Bellabox October 2012 + September Reviews

Hey everyone

Being relatively new to beauty blogging I thought it was about time I signed up to one of these beauty boxes that everyone around here just loves! After weighing up the options I decided to go for Bellabox :)

Now I actually signed up for it halfway through last month and therefore received the last box on the 30th of September. I thought it was a bit late to blog about it then, but it ended up giving me a good idea. Each month I am going to show you contents of the current box, and then review the previous box's products. I thought this was a good idea as it gives me a good chance to trial the last month's box rather than just giving an initial review. Please let me know what you think of this format :)

Enough waffling, onto the products!


The October box :)


This month's theme is Pink for Breast Cancer :)
$1 from each box is donated to Breast Cancer


The October Box Products

1. Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Balm with Pink Tint - Full Size 2g
2. Klorane Gentle Shampoo with Oat Milk - Sample 25ml
3. Klorane Treatment - Sample 10ml
4. Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Treatment - Sample 5ml
5. DKNY Fresh Blossom Eau De Parfum - Sample 1.5ml
6. Bourjois Smoky Effect Eyeliner in 72 Dark Purple - Full Size 0.89g
7. Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Nail Polish in Petal Pusher - Full Size 9.17ml
8. Clinique Turn Around Concentrate Serum - Sample 7ml

A pretty awesome box in my opinion :)


The September Box Product Reviews

1. Australis Lash TLC Mascara - Sorry I haven't tested this yet because I currently have 3 mascaras open :(
2. Bioderma Purifying Foaming Gel - I don't like foaming cleansers and this smelled yuck to me.
3. Bioderma Purifying Correcting Care - This says it can be used as a base for makeup, yet it balls off like a weird film and peels off my face. I am sorry but this stuff sucks.
4.  Klorane Dry Shampoo - This stuff is awesome! It kicks batiste's ass for staying power ie. my hair stays less oily for longer :D I love it and would repurchase again!
5. True Solutions Tinted Moisturizer - I love that it's SPF 30. However it is too orange on me :(
6. You, Me and Every Body Skin Mousse - This stuff is so fun to play with, but it's a but gimmicky and I do prefer a lotion. But I did enjoy trying it out!

  2. I would have been really excited about the Bioderma products I'm yet to try anything from them out. But I agree with you about foaming cleansers, usually they are soo drying. Octobers box looks a lot better than Septembers but I suppose thats the problem with these subscriptions, theres always going to be times when some months are not as great xx

  4. What a fantastic October box! I love that you let us know what actually sucked, much better than hearing 'This was all lovely!' because that doesn't help me at all! I hope your boxes are all as great as this months!

  5. I gave up on beauty boxes so I'm going to live vicariously through you :) I only ever used the shampoo and conditioners out of the boxes and there's only so much skincare you can get! I'm not saving my $15 a month and doing a big order from the US every few months instead :) $15 = 1 MAC lipstick!

    2. I can totally understand that :) I actually signed up primarily for skin care stuff! I reckon I will give this whole thing six months and then decided whether it was worth it :D So very true!

  6. Great format of including reviews on last month's products! I gave the Bioderma samples to my younger sister and I chucked out the skin mousse.

  9. Love the Klorane dry shampoo - it's my favourite and I keep a small can in my bag at all times :) I'm quite liking the contents of this month's box, especially the Estee Lauder and Clinique samples, and the Bourjois liner!

  10. I actually don't regret giving up Bellabox, but I must say that the October box looks like a winner. :)

    I have some of the items from the September box, so I'm not sure if I got it from other box subscriptions or if it was a repeat!
