Bellabox AUGUST 2012

Today I finally received the August edition of the Bellabox. This month's theme is GO GREEN where they aim to take a more natural approach to beauty. This is what I received in my box:

Overview of what I received

Wotnot Facial Wipes

Pack of 25 RRP: $7.95
What you get: FULL SIZE

These wipes are made with 100% natural fibres and enriched with certified organic aloe vera, sweet almond oil and rosehip oil and can be used to remove make up and refresh skin. Also, they're 100% biodegradable! amazing! I actually just used these wipes 5 minutes before writing this post. I needed to take my make up off so i thought now is better than ever to test them out. Now, i don't ever use wipes mainly because I dont own any and I just generally use my make up remover on a cotton pad and take my make up off that way. But wow, after using these wipes I am completely in awe. It felt so soft and moisurising on my skin and did well with removing my make up. I was wearing my Revlon Colourstay Whipped Foundation and it just came right off. This is the only product that I've tried so far from Bellabox that makes me actually want to purchase another pack once I've finished. I'm really loving these wipes.

USPA Wheatgrass Solar Energy Leave in Serum
150ml RRP: $32
What you Get: 30ml

This is a leave in serum that utilises the unique properties of wheatgrass, silicone, glycerine and essential oils to preserve and protect colour treated hair.
I honestly don't care too much for this, I was actually really hoping for the foot pumice that I saw other people had received because my feet are in desperate need of care. But oh well, I may try this one day but I am really lazy when it comes to hair maintenance.

LUK Beautifood Lip Nourish
3g RRP $24.95
What you Get: FULL SIZE

This is a lip nourish that is made from a 100% natural, edible and food active recipe. The flavour i got was Tangerine and Vanilla.  Upon looking at it, the colour is horrible and definitely not something i would ever pick up. However when swatched, it applies very sheer and the brown hardly shows up. I haven't applied it onto my lips yet so I can't comment on whether it is moisturising but there is a scent to it that does smell like it's description of tangerine and vanilla.

LUSH Ro's Argan Body Conditioner
225g RRP: $29.95
What you Get: 45g

This is described as a conditioner that is to be used just like a conditioner but instead for your body. The smell is incredibly strong as usual with LUSH products in my opinion and smells strongly of a floral scent with a bit of lemon. I tried this product on my arm and it did feel incredibly soft and moisturising however I am very sensitive to smell and after a while I had a headache because of the fragrance so i had to wipe it off. That is not to say the product isn't good though, the smell issue is just my personal problem but I've heard a lot of people are really enjoying this product!

Be in Awe Skincare

Clearing Serum:
50ml RRP: $69.00
What you Get: 5ml

Calming Serum:
50ml RRP: $79.00
What you Get: 3ml x2 = 6ml

These are described as perfect for itchy skin conditions and for use after skin irritation treatments. I suffer from neither of these so it probably won't be too useful so maybe i'll end up giving it away. I dont usually like to change my skincare especially if what i'm doing is already working for me, I dont like risking a breakout lol

Phytocare Daily C
30 satchets x 3.7g RRP: $17.80
What you Get: 1000mg x 2 satchets

This is Vitamin C powder, individually packaged containing a mix of essential nutrients that are free of sugar and with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. It aims to make you feel good on the inside and out. It'll probably come in handy with my late night uni cramming and full time work as well as i'm feeling a little run down these days. I'll keep these on hand for an all-nighter session.

Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion 
225g RRP: $29.95
What you Get: 29ml

Aveeno moisurisers contain natural colloidal oatmeal to moisturise and protect skin, providing 24 hours relief from nasty dryness, scaling and chapping. It is non greasy, absorbs quickly, non-comedogenic (won't clog pores) and also contains no added fragrance.
Basically, just another moisturiser but with it's cute travel size, i'll probably throw this into my handbag where it'll be most useful while im out.

So that's all that I received in this months Bellabox. I did read around on what other people received and i have to say I was really really hoping to receive the Eyes of Horus liquid liner. I wanted that more than any of the products as i use liquid liner in a pen form on a daily basis but much to my dismay I didnt receive it.. I always seem to not receive the things i really want so maybe next month I should lay off the stalking of blogs to find out what's in the month's box lol. All in all, this month I'm a bit half half, i'm not completely disappointed but not overly impressed either. I do however, love the wipes so the box isn't a waste for me.

What did you receive? was there something you really wanted but didn't get either? let me know :)


  1. I received the same box, was hoping for the EOH eyeliner though :P
