March BELLABOX!

13 Apr

Hi guys!

Apologies for the lack of posts recently.
I had a little weekend away at Melbourne and also managed to get sick, so I haven’t been in the right mind frame to write. But here’s a peak at what I got in my March Bellabox!

After ripping it open at the first opportunity, the theme this month reveals itself as “Delicious Beauty“.

March Bellabox: Delicious Beauty

Opening up to find the contents sitting inside, I was a little disappointed at the amount of products present.
I’ve had previous boxes that were filled with goodies, and even though this box had 5 items with an extra bonus item, it still looked a little bare.

Let’s start off and see what I received in this month’s subscription.

March Bellabox: Items

So okay. At first glace, seeing all that extra space being taken up by a low carb power bar, was a little disappointing.
Considering this was supposed to be the “bonus product” it didn’t seem that great to have it as the centre of attention.

But after reviewing all the products, I realised – “Hey… Maybe it’s not that bad after all!”.

Swisse Active Energy Bar

First things first. What is this energy bar?? Bit odd to have it in a Bellabox isn’t it?
Anyhow, it’s supposed to be low in carbs and high in protein. So when I’m thinking about hitting the gym, this will be a great snack to have before hand to keep me going!
Only problem: I better not munch on this before my next weigh in, because this chocolate bar might just make me break the scales…

Ocean Essence Coconut Body Milk

This was a little odd one. I haven’t heard of the brand before, nor did it look particularly interesting…
Can’t say much about this one besides that it’s currently sitting in my bathroom draw, in my large pile of samples that are less likely to ever see daylight.

I’m obviously not very impressed with the presentation of this product (even if it’s only supposed to be a sample), so I’ll let you know if I ever come around to using it.

Ocean Essence Pink Diamond Face Mask

Okay here’s another product that was put together with no thoughts to first impressions, causing me disappointment in this Bellabox.
My first thought when I saw this was “WHAT IS IT???”.

After reading through the included information card and hopping onto the Bellabox website, I came to the conclusion that it’s supposed to be Ocean Essence’s Pink Diamond Face Mask.

Well this is odd. It’s not pink. Nor does it remind me of diamonds.

To be honest though, I’m actually a little intrigued (unlike with the Ocean Essence Body Milk). I’ve been thinking of trying some face masks lately and this could just be my ticket into exploration.
I will be a little cautious to try this on my face though, considering the lack of appeal a blob of gooey purple gel provides.
But the “Pink Diamond” might just have me testing this product soon.

Glamourflage Lip Balm in Cherry

Why, hello! This is what I’m talking about!

This lip balm is supposed to be a cult favourite – and now I know why!
Not only did I instantly crack this balm open when I saw it, the scent from this product is amazing!
The cherry scent makes me want to eat my own lips whilst the balm provides a great layer of moisture.

I’m testing out this product a little more to see how well this balm works – whether or not it can cure my never-ending dry lips.
Will definitely keep you posted.

Clinique High Impact Mascara in Black

And now the best for last. This product is definitely one that I’ll be looking forward to trying!

As you all know, I’m a Clinique fan. So having this appear in the box is a great big excitement for me!
I’ve heard a lot of good things about this mascara, so hopefully it’ll provide as good of results as everyone’s been talking about.

Overall, this box has been a bit of a disappointment.
The lack of products plus what seems like less quality of products was not too appealing. But the Glamourflage Lip Balm and Clinique High Impact Mascaras saved the day.

I also hopped onto the Bellabox website to see what other products they gave our during March and found a better array of items than the ones I received.
I may have just gotten the dud box.

I will update you guys when I really get to try some of these, and again – apologies for the delay in this post!

For now though…

Lovelove,

Rean.
