BellaBox - September 2013

The September Bella Box was waiting for me on the doorstep when I got home from work on Friday. This was a little unusual. I normally have to pick up my box from the post office but this time it was sent by a courier (which explains why I never got a tracking email like normal). This months Bella Box was so full it was well... overflowing. Not all the items were in the box, actually most of the items weren't in the box, that's how full it was!  

The September box is presented by Cleo magazine and the theme is 'Spring Party Essentials". Naturally the latest issue of Cleo is included. Last month, I didn't feel like the products fit the theme but this month that is not the case. These products definitely fit the theme. 

The September Bella Box contains:

Montagne Jeunesse Blemish Mud Masque - 10ml $3.99
The mud masques always seem like they would be fun. I can't say I use masques often - I am too lazy. I am not sure this one is suited to me as I don't have blemish prone skin. Back a couple of months I ago I received another masque from this company - I hate repetition in my sample boxes. This is a 5ml sample size. 

Elegant Touch Envy Wraps - 1 set (18 wraps) $8.99 
I received this in the style 'Bling Candy Drops' which I really like. It is a shimmery white base with multi-sized dots in purple, green, yellow and pink. It also has silver raised drops, giving the bling effect. I really like using these type of nail product so I look forward to giving these a try. 

Schick Hydro Silk Razor - (1 razor & 1 cartridge) $9.99
This is the first time I have received a razor in a sample box but it is actually something I am pretty pleased to get. Razors are not something I spurge on - I usually buy the cheapest disposable ones available in the supermarket. The Hydro Silk razor has five blades and a really nice design that makes me think it would work with the curves of the body really well. The box also includes a 25% off coupon for refill blades from Woolworths. 

Manicare GlamEyes Kelly Lashes - 1 pair $11.95
Lashes aren't something I ever wear mainly because I don't feel the need to (thanks to being blessed in the lashes department). The Kelly Lashes are really nice looking flirty lashes. Adhesive is included and I am realy tempted to give these a shot - will wait for a special occasion though. 

Footcare Gel Ball of Foot Cushions - 2 pairs $8.99
These gel cushions have to be one of the best inventions ever! They defintely do make wearing heels more comfortable. Always a handy product to have around.

Garnier Ambre Solaire Natural Bronzer Spray - 150ml $14.95
Now, if you are a regular reader you will know that I never fake tan and have never felt the need to. I am pale and proud! However if I was going to tan, this would be the type of product I would use. It promises a light natural tan with no streaks. Sounds good huh? May have to try this one...

ASAP Pure Mineral Eye Pencil - $20.00
This pencil contains natural antioxidants and vitamin E which makes this pencil suitable for sensitive eyes. I received this in the shade 'Brown' which is a really nice blackened brown. The texture is a little firm but workable. Gotta love a full size make up product! 

BONUS PRODUCT: Cleo Magazine October 2013 - $6.95

Overall, I am really impressed with the September Bella Box. It is a massive step up for me from lasts months box. There is great variety of products within the box itself and from boxes in the past. The items in the box fit the theme very well and I am really just happy with the value and quality of the box. 

This is the type of box that really shows you what Bella Box is about! 

What did you receive in the September Bella Box? Thoughts?


  1. Your box looks pretty good! I hope mine arrives soon - it's been a REALLY slow month of boxes. HFB is the only one of mine to turn up so far!

  2. this box looks really good! I hope mine shows up.. I have a PO box and have no idea what will happen with mine =[

  3. I was floored by my box! All but one was full sized!!

    Also I've nominated you for the Leibster Award, it's a tag that's really good to discover new blogs under 200 subs.

    The questions are over on my blog
