Bellabox Jan 2013

I've been subscribed to Bellabox and Lusthaveit for about a year now, and I thought its about time I blogged about them. So Bellabox arrived first this month - in its classic sturdy box. I love that Bellabox send their products in a box - the boxes are well-made (don't fall apart after a week), and I could find a million uses for them around my house. So the January box brought 5 new products into my home from brands such as Jurlique, NATIO and Face of Australia. A combination of skincare and light make-up.

This months box had in it, two full size products, one of which was some aloe vera gel by You, Me & Everybody. I'll be honest, I don't use aloe vera gel. Not because I don't like it, just because mainly I don't get burnt - I just don't have that type of skin, and also because Nivea seems to sooth my skin just as well in those rare occasions when I do get burnt. None the less, I'm happy I've got it - and will definitely use it next time my skin is in need of some cooling. The 100mL bottle is valued at AU$8.95.

Next up where two sample sized Jurlique products. The larger of the two is a replenishing cleansing lotion. The full size product (200mL) is valued at AU$45. The smaller sample was the purely age-defying ultra firm and lift cream. The full size (50mL) is a whooping AU$90. Both Jurlique product have a very faint fragrance, nothing too strong or overpowering. They are both decent size samples, and I'll use them both, however am a bit reluctant to re-purchase as Jurlique is quite the pricey label.

The last two products including a satchel of NATIO BB cream and a full size lipgloss by Face of Australia

Ok, laugh all you want but I only found out what BB cream was when I opened this box. Shocking I know, but true. Better late than never right. I haven't actually tried this cream, yet, but apparently BB cream is fabulous. I've hear and read lots of great reviews on BB creams, so am definitely keen to try this one out! Let hope the shade "medium" is a perfect match, and thumbs up for it also having 15 SPF in it! Full size product (50g) is valued at AU$14.95.

Last but not least, was this full size Face of Australia Massage Therapy Lipshine in the shade Bondi. At first look, the colour looked way too dark for me, but fortunately it doesn't come out that dark on my lips. And the smell is a-m-a-z-i-n-g! I'm surprised I haven't eaten the stuff! (15mL valued at $10.95)

Overall the January Bellabox was great value.
The two full size products alone exceed the $15 I paid for the box. 


  1. Sounds like a nice box of goodies! Thanks for your comment by the way xx

  2. The box itself looks so pretty! I always find new uses for my old empty beauty boxes too! :) xx

  3. I liked the natio bb cream and am considering buying it when my others run out, hope you like it too xo
