BellaBox - August 2013

Since Bella Box is now the only box I am subscribed to, I was pretty excited to receive my Bella Box last week. This months theme appears to be 'get active' though I don't really see anything in the box that fits that theme entirely. 

The August Bella Box contains:

Pevonia Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser - 150ml $67.00
This brand sounds familar, I think I have recieved one of their products in a previous box. This is a natural product which sounds nice but kind of meh. This is a 5ml sample tube. 

ASAP Ultimate Hydration - 50ml $79.00
This moisturisers claims to deliver immediate and visible results to dry and prematurely aged skin. It includes ingredients like hyaluronic acid to increase hydration. Looking forward to trying this as my skin has been shockingly dry lately. This is a more generous 15ml tube. 

Ultraceuticals Ultra CC Cream Mineral Tint SPF30 - 50ml $59.00
I was excited to see this until I noticed the shade - medium. I knew that wouldn't be any good for me, most light CC/BB creams are too dark for my fair skin. As predicted this is way too dark and therefore useless. To me this is probably the only product to fit with the 'get active' theme. 

Talavou Naturals Glo - 8g $39.95
I like that this product has only three ingredients - meaning you really know what you are putting on your skin. But it is a bronzer, I rarely if ever wear the stuff. As I have mentioned before - I am pale and proud! Whilst the packaging looks full size, the amount inside is a sample size, a small sample too. 

L'Oreal Base Magique Primer - 15ml $29.95
I always like a make up product however I still have a sample of this that L'Oreal were giving away for free when it was first released. I don't like this product either. It is too heavy, silicone based for my liking. 

John Frieda Precision Foam Colour Intense After-Colour Conditoner - 150ml $16.99
This conditioner doesn't really apply to me as I no longer colour my hair (though I am considering it). Conditioners are always handy though. It is like some unwritten law that conditioner runs out long before shampoo. This is a 50ml tube. 

TOM Organic - 16 tampons $7.99
Meh. Two tampons. Luckily this is a bonus and not one of the products. Really not interested. 

Overall this months box for me is a bit meh, blah, so-so - take your pick! I am really just bored by this box. Nothing exciting or wow about it. Hopefully next months is better or it may be time for me to unsubscribe...

What do you think of the August Bella Box? Happy?


  1. I can tell you from experience that the John Frieda conditioner is the best! It'll make your hair so smooth and silky. They probably included it as John Freida recently released this conditioner as a full size product available for purchase, rather than just in the hair dye box :)

  2. I'll have to put it in the shower to make sure I use it :)
