BellaBox - August 2012

BellaBox sure arrived quickly this month! I received a dispatch notification email yesterday afternoon and got a parcel notice in the letterbox this morning. I only went to the post office late this afternoon to pick it up. Not feeling well and could hardly get out of bed but have made the effort to get up and blog about it.

The theme for August is 'Go Green' and features the pick of natural products. This month includes a nice balance of beauty, skincare, body and lifestyle products. I definitely think there is good value in this months box and a couple of products I am really excited to try. Also glad it arrived earlier this month, compared to previous months.


The August BellaBox contains:

Luk Beautifood Lip Nourish in Chai Shimmer - 3g $24.95
This is a brand new product on the market. It is 100% natural and smells pretty good (like Christmas!). The colour is a very sheer nude with a soft shimmer. Really excited to try this out and really happy to see the first item is full sized.

Lush Ro's Argan Body Conditioner - 225g $29.95
Really loving the Lush products I have been trying lately. Being winter, who doesn't have dry skin? This is a 45g sample pot. The smell is quite strong and at first I didn't like it but it is already growing on me. Smells like roses and lemon.

Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion - 354ml $12.99
I can't figure out if this 29ml sample is for the face or body. I think it is for the body. I have heard good things about Aveeno but I'm not overly excited to try this.

EmerginC Kombucha Cleanser & Phytocell Cream - 120ml $44.00 & 50ml $105
A 3ml sample of each product. I think I received these in a LustHaveIt box a few months ago and never used them. I doubt I will use these after my skin reacted to the serum capsule I tried from another months BellaBox.

Uspa Organic Wild Thyme Foot Pumice - 200ml $39.00
Okay, I'll admit I have horrible feet! I will definitely give this a try. It is like a scrub for your feet and is a generous 30ml sample. The only thing that puts me off it the really strong smell that I do not find nice.

Eye of Horus Liquid Define Eyeliner in Black - 2g $30.00
I am super excited to try this full size(!) liquid eyeliner. Testing this on the back of my hand, it allows me to draw a really nice fine line that is super black. Very happy to receive this!

Phytocare Daily C - 30x3.7g sachets $17.80
This is a Vitamin C powder that you mix into liquid. It seems similar to Berocca to me, a little less exciting but still a different product to include.

BONUS PRODUCT: You, Me & Everybody Bodhi Me Hand Wash - 250ml $5.99
This is literally to big for BellaBox so if you place an online order from the BellaBox shop and enter the code you will receive one for free. Nice offer but not sure I will be ordering anything. 

I am really happy with this months box. After the last couple of boxes and my self diagnosed 'Sample Box Fatigue" I am really glad I did not end my subscription. There is a great range of products and excellent value. I am looking forward to trying these new products out. I especially love the two make up products and full sized too! Excellent job BellaBox! You have earned my love again :)

What did you receive in your BellaBox? Same or different?


  1. wow awesome box this month! im really hoping for the black eyeliner. Thanks for the post :)

  2. I like Aveeno products but I agree they're not exactly sexy. I'm interested to know which sample boxes you prefer? Bellabox or Lust Have It?

    1. I like both. BellaBox is good for more natural products and often full sized. Lust Have It has more luxurious products but smaller samples. :)

  3. I couldn't help myself but look at the open box :) I'm Perth based so normally don't get my box until 2 weeks after everyone else. Nice post, I'm a new follower, follow me back if you like :D


    1. Woah I could not wait that long! Thanks for following. I will check your blog out :)

  4. I got mine yesterday, but im a bit bummed because instead of a full sized eyeliner, i got a packet of face wipes...... :( i love liquid eyeliner and i can see its a full size rrp $30, rather than some face wipes rrp like $7.

    1. That would be really disappointing, I know I have missed out in previous months. You just have to hope it will balance out in future months :)

  5. Ooh I wish I got that Eye of Horus eyeliner! The Lush body conditioner smells so strong, glad to hear that you like it now because hopefully it will grow on me too :)
