When I decided to re-subscribe to Bellabox, I figured it was about time I started blogging again. It's been pretty much exactly a year between posts, and there are reasons, the biggest of which have been YouTube and network related (I'll go into that another day).
I know you're all dying to see what's in this month's Bellabox, so I'll dive right in.
I love the blue box packaging. These things are so cute and a great way to store little things (I keep lashes in some, and other assorted cute things in others).
Inside, under the black tissue paper, I found 3 full sized products and several smaller samples, which I'm super excited about.
First, the ever-amazing Nivea cream tin. I instantly recognised the scent of the cream and was taken back to my childhood. The rich, thick cream is so lovely on the skin and it's going to come in super handy while I'm healing a brand new tattoo.
Next is a KBC favourite. Lush are my very favourite store to buy bath and body products in, and it always smells so freaking amazing in the stores. This product is no exception. It's a chocolate and orange scented shower cream, which I can't wait to use.
Next, the Avene samples. I was supposed to get extreme cream and cleansing lotion, but I actually got 2 of the cleansing lotion. I've tried their stuff before and it's always nice, but on the higher end of the price range.
Alpha Keri body slimfit samples, to firm and tone body skin. One of these products also claims to reduce body fat. As someone on a weight loss journey right now (15kg gone!), I am extremely skeptical of any product which claims to do what I've found can only be achieved with hard work and sacrifice.
I also got a Hello Fresh $50 voucher ($25 off each of your first 2 boxes). I'm not really into these kinds of things, but the voucher is of value and I'm sure many people will get some use out of it.
Last of all, is this. Em concealer was the product that everyone wanted to see, and everyone gets one in their box this month. Mine is in the shade "The Neutralizer"...and I'll leave it up to you to decide whether you think it's an accurate name.
I personally think that the name should have been "OMFG it's orange."
Taking the shade out of the equation, the consistency is quite good. A tiny bit goes a long way, and it provides full coverage. I'm a bit sad that I won't get to use this regularly, but I will try it out to get an idea of how it performs and maybe review it for you guys soon.
So...that's my bellabox for August. What did you guys get in yours?
