Bellabox Unboxing (August 2015)

This month’s Bellabox was a bit of a birthday present, as it arrived the day after my birthday (I’ve had it for a couple of days already). I’m pretty impressed with the box (over $60 worth of value) and will use all the samples.imageMax Factor Masterpiece Max Mascara
I have my Maybelline Clossal Volume Express Smoky Eyes, and that’s the best I’ve ever used. However, this mascara does a great job at lengthening my lashes. I can see myself using this when I’m after a less-dramatic look. This product was full size and retails for $23.95, meaning I’ve already received over the box’s cost.

I’m currently using another shampoo/conditioner by OGX, and love the way it makes my hair feel. These bottles are a generous sample size (just under 90mL eaxh), so perfect for taking on longer holidays. I’ll save these for when I travel next! Right now Priceline is selling the full sized bottles (385mL) as a 2 for $20 deal (worth $17.99 each normally), so if you want to give the full size a try, it’s a really good deal (valid until September 9, 2015).imageNip + Fab Glycolic Fix Pads
Kylie Jenner’s favourite product by this brand has landed in some of this month’s bellaboxes. I received a sample with five wipes in it (full size retails for $29.95 and comes with 60 wipes). My face feels refreshed, but my skin feels a little oily/sticky, so I’m not sure whether I would use this product. Props to the pad for removing make up my regular makeup wipes didn’t get to though!imageSkin & Co Roma Truffle Therapy Serum

The serum has been handcrafted in Italy and is made with truffles! I haven’t tested this product yet, as it’s only a 5mL sample and sounds super luxurious (30mL costs $99.95…making this little sample worth $16.65!) It smells yummy and has a light ‘rich’ smell – definitely something to treat my face to after a long day of work.imageNuxe Reve De Miel Face Cream

I used this yesterday and loved the way it felt on the skin. At first it felt a bit heavy, however after soaking in, my skin felt noticeably softer. I’d have to try this more before committing to buying the full size, but they’ve given me a 15 mL sample to play with!image

Dermal Therapy Heel Balm Platinum

This was a bonus item in my bellabox, and while I heard some people weren’t impressed about getting the sample, I’m really excited to try it (right now my heels are a bit of a cracked mess!) If I get results like the ones on the packaging, I would definitely consider purchasing this product.imageMy products and samples work out to a total value of $63.94 approximately, making it great value for money. I felt like this month I’ve received the most mid-range/luxury brands to sample, and look forward to using them all. As always, let me know what you got in your box, and what your favourite product was this month.
