‘Bellabox’ March 2012

You just know I ate that cookie right away. Pictured above are the March offerings from Australian beauty subscription service Bellabox. This month’s theme was all about letting your true self shine with the help of these bare faced beauty products. Included in the box were: U Little Beauty Natural Shine Hair Serum $19.95 for 100ml, Yes To Carrots Lip Tint $9.95 for 2.6gm, Pure Fiji Coconut Hydrating Body Lotion $29.95 for 354ml (I am most excited about this product – except for the cookie of course), Bellamer Eye Balm $40 for 15gm & Eyelift (not pictured) $29 for 15 pots. What are your thoughts on this month’s Bellabox? Does this interest you enough to tempt you to subscribe? (note: this product was sent to me for consideration for review)

‘Lust Have It’ March 2012

The Lust Have It selection for March was pretty impressive and there are 2-3 products in here that I know I’ll get some use out of. I’ve been toying with the idea of of cancelling my subscription for a while now but I just can’t resist the lure of having a parcel arrive once a month, especially when I’ve cut back so much on all of the other online shopping that I do. Included in this month’s box were: Karpati Dito Nail Lacquer $19.95 for 8ml, Mirenesse Pearl Crush Creaseless Shadow $29.95 for full size, Davroe Moisture Senses Argan Oil $23.95 for 50ml, 1Skin Solutions Lip Balm in Vanilla $9.90 for 5g, Kosmea Replenishing Moisture Cream $49.95 for 50ml.

‘Lust Have It’ February 2012

Lust Have It took a sabbatical at the beginning of the year, so I was happy to return from my Bali trip to find the the Lust Have It February box delivered and ready to be opened. It was filled with annoying shredded paper (as always) and the following beauty goodies: Taut Collagen Infusion Mask $44.95 for 5 pack (I am wary to try this after receiving the Taut shark cartilage drink in an earlier box. Just… no.), Davroe Tame Lemongrass Detangler $21.50 for 315ml (probably the most interesting product for me in this month’s box), Sasy N Savy Rose Lavender Hand N Nail Repair Cream $25 for 100ml (worst brand name ever), LUSH Sugar Scrub $6.50 for 100ml (I am looking forward to trying this, despite the botanical scent) & Lancome Juicy Tube $46 for 14g (the only product I’ve tried previously, and look forward to using again). What are your thoughts on this month’s box?

I Love This Box

The latest luxury gift box to pop up on the Australian market is “I Love This Box“. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s their first month or if the quality will stay this high, but the first offering from I Love This Box is pretty impressive. Included in the box were: 200ml bottles of Keratinology Detoxifying Shampoo & Express Treatment Conditioner, 50ml Pod Liquid Tan Gradual Tanning Face Serum (that I will never use, so I will be giving it away to a friend), nvey eco Eye Shadow Taupe #172, samples of the Caudalie skin care range and a sample sized bottle of Essie’s Nice is ‘Nice’. Also included was a $10 off voucher for Magnolia Silver Jewellery. Not bad for $14.95, huh? To subscribe to I Love This Box for $14.95 per month, visit their website.
