Bellabox Unboxing August 2013

I got a little surprise in the mail today - this month’s Bellabox! This month has the theme of Get Active…which confused me a little with some of the products I received. Some of them I would think of being active with them, but definitely not all of them! Nonetheless, I got some great products.

Talavou Naturals Glo - RRP $39.95 | 8g is a completely natural light bronzing powder that boasts only three ingredients, all of which are completely natural. It promises to not clog your pores and suffocate your skin like other powders. The colour swatches very nicely and feels good on the skin. I am excited to try this product out!

John Frieda Precision Foam Colour Intense After-Colour Conditioner - RRP $16.99 | 150ml was a bit baffling to receive. It looks like a conditioner that you would receive for free in your dye kit. Bit strange! I also am not sure how this relates to being ‘active’ as such. Nevertheless, I like most John Frieda products and I will use this conditioner!

ASAP Ultimate Hydration - RRP $79 | 50ml is a lovely light moisturiser that I have used previously. It was a bit expensive, so I decided against re-purchasing, but I am happy that I got it as a sample to try out again!

L’Oreal Base Magicue Primer - RRP $29.95 | 15ml was the cult product of the month and I am really excited to get this one! I have used other L’Oreal “Magicue” products (including my new favourite face powder - Nude Magicue BB Powder in Light) so I am really excited to try out the primer. It will be a nice change from my usual primer of Benefit the PORE-fessional.

Ultraceuticals Ultra CC Cream Mineral Tint SPF 30 - RRP $59.00 50ml this is one of the products that I can see fitting into the ‘active’ theme. I often like wearing a tinted moisturiser whilst exercising because it stills gives me some coverage over outstanding blemishes and scares, whilst not caking my face with makeup. This one is an expensive tinted moisturiser, so I am excited to try it out!

Pevonia Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser - RRP $67 | 150ml is another luxe skincare product I am exciting to try. It contains Jojoba beads, Saponaria and Chamomile, so it’s bound to be a lovely light exfoliator and won’t harm my blemished skin.

TOM Organic Tampons - RRP $7.99 | 16 tampons I have used this brand before and I wasn’t overly impressed with them. I went back to using a brand that I like, so I will be giving these away to someone else.

Feel free to check out my accompanying YouTube video as well! It will be up tomorrow at midday!

Did you get the ‘active’ theme, cause I sure didn’t! Any thoughts on this?

    I think I’ll need to be signing up to Bella Box when I get back… If only for a couple of luxe products that I wouldn’t otherwise buy.

      It’s definitely worth it to try out some high end products for sure!!
