BellaBox - May 2013



The May Bella Box has the theme of "Beauty SOS" and includes so many different products that the box doesn't actually close... Anyway I won't ramble on. Onto the contents we go!




The May Bella Box contains:

Lonvitalite C4 Coconut Milk Facial Mask - 5 masks $29.00
This brand has been popping up quite regularly in subscription boxes lately and to be honest, I haven't used one of their products yet. This one appeals to me though as I love the smell of coconut milk and this is a hydrating and nourishing mask. 

Suigo Vital Nutrition Intensive Hair Repair Treatment - 500ml $40.00
I am really excited to try this as I have heard lots of beauty bloggers rave about this brand recently. I have recently fallen in love with using hair masks and this will be used next time I wash my hair. This is a generous 100ml sample pot.

Bloom Shadow Liner in Charcoal Grey - $25.00
This has a really nice angled applicator so it can be used as either an all over shadow or a liner. Charcoal Grey is a pretty soft grey with sparkles. Personally I wouldn't use it as a liner but I think it would be great for a quick and easy wash of colour over the lid. Gotta love a full sized beauty item.

Manicare Duo Mascara Brushes - 10 per pack $4.99
This includes mascara brushes for volume and for curl. These are a good idea if you are a professional but also good for trying to get more use out a mascara that may not work for you. 

Ahava Time to Treat Comforting Cream - 50ml $50.00
This is designed for sensitive skin and it smells really good. I am not sure if it is for face, body or both though. This is a nice sized 15ml tube.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo - 40ml $25.95
I have heard fantastic things about this brand so I am excited to have some products to try. From what I can gather this product is for use on areas of congested skin to correct and unclog. This is a 3ml sample.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Foaming Gel - 200ml $19.95
Ditto above but this is a cleanser for sensitive oily skin. Sadly my skin is dry so I am not sure this will suit my skin. I may still try it though. This is a 15ml sample.

BONUS Nanoblur - 30ml $29.99
This is a 2ml sample sachet. I have almost purchased this product in Priceline quite a few times. Really happy to have a sample to try out first. It promises to take 10 years off your age - I am not sure I want to look 12 years old though.




Overall I am really happy with this months box there is great variety and great value. I will try everything in this box and hopefully find some new favourites. With a quick calculation this box has a value of over $60 which is very generous of Bella Box. Also take not of the number of different products - 8! That is awesome. 


What did you receive in you Bella Box? Same or different? Happy?

  2. I feel like I'm the only one not "wowed" by this box. And my Ahava cream smells terrible. Maybe I got a dud? Haha. Great review anyway. :)

  4. I'm curious to know if the Effaclar Duo they included in the box is the European or US Version? Does it contain Benzoyl Peroxide?

  7. Wow! They've really stepped up this month, great variety of products, and I'm really excited to see some La Roche Posay in there. I'm very envious of your free Effaclar Duo...I paid $39 for a new one the other day. Maybe I shouldn't have cancelled my Bella Box account after all haha.
