Bellabox: OCTOBER 2012!

This month is Bellabox's birthday month and they sure made sure the box was special! Compared to LHI's birthday month box, this one is waaaay better. I was so disappointed in LHI's September box as well that i ended up unsubscribing, so no box from this this month, or any other month for that matter lol.
Anyways, back onto Bellabox, this month the theme is "Pretty in Pink" and works alongside the National Breast Cancer Foundation. For each Bellabox sold, they will donate $1 to the foundation. That's amazing i think, breast cancer is something that is close to my heart so i'm very grateful for this. So what's in the box?

Sorry you'll have to excuse the poor quality, my camera has gone missing so these pics were taken with the iPhone.

As you can see there are 4 full sized products. I'm also not sure if im missing a product because on my card it says there should be an Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Instant Action Lift Treatment however... there was none in my box? :(

However I did get:

Clinique Turnaround Concentrate Extra Radiance Renewer 
30ml RRP $74
What you get: 7ml
This exfoliating serum contains plenty of ingredients to promote cell maturation, turnover and removal without causing the slightest irritation to your skin.

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Nail Colour
9.17ml RRP: $13.95
What you get: Full Size
This is such a vibrant pink colour, not sure if i would pull it off but nevertheless it's gorgeous!

DKNY Fresh Blossom Eau So Intense
100 RRP: $135
What you get: 1.5ml
I haven't smelt this yet but it's pretty self-explanatory.. perfume samples, you get the point lol 

Cedel Blow Dry Faster Heat Protector
165ml RRP: $9.99
What you get: Full Size
This 2-in-1 formula reduces blow drying time whilst protecting each strand from the abrasive heat of your hair dryer.
I'm SO happy to have received this, I blow dry my hair every single day and never use heat protectant so this is definitely down my alley and even better that it's full sized.

CARMEX moisture plus ultra hydrating lipbalm in PINK sheer tint
Full size 
I love getting lip balms and this is no exception.  I'm still using the carmex from a previous bellabox so it never hurts to have another one. I also love how it comes in the PINK to coincide with Breast Cancer research, love!

E.L.F Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner
RRP : $3.99
What you get: Each product varies, i received the liquid eyeliner.
The colour i received was "stardust" which is a glittery lilac colour. Not sure if i like it but happy to have received it anyway.

So that's all i received in my box this month, i also just received a response from Bellabox (talk about amazing customer service) advising that i should have received everything on my card so unfortunately my poor Estee Lauder product was left out but i should receive it later this month.

What do you think of this month's box? I personally love it! x


  1. this is their best one yet that i have seen! thy seem to be a bit hit and miss to me? after seeing this i think i will give them a go :) thanks for sharing!

    1. you're welcome, glad it was helpful for your decision :)

  2. I think this is far better than last month but not the best. I love the concept of beauty boxes but they contain way too much skincare. The way I see it is that I prefer to buy 1 MAC lipstick (from the US) each month than a beauty box. I'll live vicariously through you though :)

    1. I agree, upon signing up i actually thought it was more of a makeup type subscription and yes i receive way too much skincare, haircare and other random stuff besides make up but i guess that's why i cancelled LHI cos i was beginning to have a build up of samples lol but i might stick with BB for a few more months to see how it goes. So you'll be getting to see what's in BB for another couple of months at least :)

  3. Wow, you actually get so much in the Bellabox!! I've been thinking of subscribing for a while, and am getting a sub for one of my best friends for her birthday, so it's great to see the kinds of things you get in there :) Thanks for sharing! :)

    1. This month's bellabox was definitely one of their best but being their birthday month box i guess that's expected. Let's hope next month is just as good then we'll know for sure :)
      Thanks for reading! x

  4. Hi Nika, I got here from the comment you posted on my blog! I really love that nail polish and I'd be interested to hear what you think of the Blow Dry Faster!

    1. Hi! i actually love the Blow Dry Faster, i've been using it everyday since i received it in the bellabox because i blow dry my hear every single day when my hair is wet and i actually do see a difference and it definitely speeds up the drying process like it claims to! I will be repurchasing once it runs out but luckily we got a full sized one :)
