BellaBox - January 2013

My January BellaBox arrived on Friday. With Australia Day being in January, the theme of this months BellaBox is of course Australian brands. I always like to try out Australian brands but honestly sometimes they can be a little boring.. Hopefully not this month. 

The January BellaBox contains:

You Me & Everybody Cool It Aloe Vera Gel - 100ml $8.95
Aloe Vera gel is something that is always handy to keep around especially in the warmer weather when sunburn can happen so easily. This is a full size product and one I am happy to receive.

Face of Australia Make Up Purifying Cleansing Wipes - 25 wipes $4.95
When I heard Face of Australia was going to be a brand in this months box I got excited hoping it was going to be a make up item. I was disappointed to find these wipes in my box, I received these in a previous box. Good news though, I actually quite like these.

Swisse Body Wash with Vitamin E & Macrobiotic Sea Minerals - 250ml $14.95
I always love trying new body washes and this is a decent size 30ml sample. It also smells really nice and fresh. Will definitely use this. 

Mode Nail Polish in Rave'N - 15ml $2.45
It's been a long time since I tried a Mode nail polish and back then I must say it was crap. Hopefully it has improved since then. I like the fluro orange colour - nothing like it in my collection.

Natio Pure Mineral Skin Perfecting BB Cream - 50g $14.95
I love trying BB creams but this is a little 5g sample sachet and it is in the Medium shade. Which I can already tell will be useless for me - I am as fair as they come! Will probably try it out just to see what the texture and such is like.

Also included in the box was a cute hedgehog/porcupine wall decal. No mention on the card as to why it is included but I quite like it. 

This months box is no way as spectacular as last months but I didn't expect it to be. Overall this month is a decent box. I just wish there was more make up in them...

A note to every BellaBox member - Reward points will now expire after 12 months, I have already lost some of mine with no pre warning. If I had have know I would have made an order to use them.

What did you get in your BellaBox? Happy with it? 


  1. I have actually cancelled my bellabox, I am kind of over the whole subscription box thing to be honest. Also I always get mine a whole week after everyone else being in WA, so it's never a surprise either!

    1. I keep going to cancel but then I think 'what if the next box is amazing?' Yes I have a fear of missing out...

  2. I was a bit underwhelmed with this months box. I got the same box as you but I didn't even get the decal! I will use all the products however (except that darn medium bb cream!), so it doesn't feel like a total waste of money.

    1. Underwhelming is the perfect way to describe this box

  3. Mine is quite different from yours! I wish I got the swisse body wash, I love their hand cream!

    1. I like your box - you got a make up item :)

  4. This box was so much better than mine, I can't remember what I got but I got so little :(
    I did get the Natio sample and aloe vera though
