BellaBox - June 2012

BellaBox June edition theme is winter escape. This is what I received in my box:

1. Benefit Porefessional Pro Balm - 7.5ml (RRP: $58 for 22ml)
I've used Porefessional before, and it did the job - minimised the appearance of pores, helped make my makeup stay on all day. However, since using Clarisonic, my pores have shrunk and I've used other primers which also help make my makeup stay on all day. So, although I love benefit products, I don't think I'm as excited as everyone else about porefessional. But this would definitely make a great travel primer.

2. Pure Fiji Body Butter Passionflower (RRP: $29.95 for 235ml)
I've tried this body butter on my hands and it feels soooo moisturizing and nourishing. The scent is also pleasant, with is an added bonus.

3. Facial Fresh Cloth Facial Treatment Mask - Tea Tree (RRP: $8.95 for 35ml)
According to the bellabox information card, this mask offers skin high absorption of the most advanced skin enhancing cosmeceutical ingredients, including clinically proven anti-oxidants, vitamins and botanicals. I'm not a big fan of the smell of tea tree, so I'm hoping it won't be too overpowering.

4. Nak Diamond Hair Polish - Frizz Fighter - 100ml (RRP: $22.95 for 100ml)
I've tried this hair polish yesterday and it's fantastic. I have dry, frizzy damaged hair from all the chemicals it has been exposed to, and this product really helps to tone down the frizz. It also has thermal protection, which is great as sometimes I do hairdry my hair and any protection from further damaging my already damaged hair is welcomed. I was also quite worried about this polish becoming a bit sticky and making my hair stiff (like the effects of a hair gel), as it has a hold factor of 2. However, my hair stayed smooth and soft and my worries went away. The smell of this polish is also amazing. :)

5. Kiss Dress Nails - 28 Jeweled Strips (RRP: $13.99)
I have seen quite a few reviews on the Sally Hansen version and lots of people are raving about them. So hopefully this will be good as well. Since I normally have gelish on my nails (Gelish are gels that you apply like nail polish but you have to set them using UV light), as they are quite weak and prone to breakage. I will have to try to work something out so I can use these bad boys! :P

6. Fan di Fendi fragrance (RRP: $95 for 30ml)
This sample is a satchet thing... It's not a spray, which makes it interesting to trial, as it looks to be a single-use only. I haven't used it yet, so am not sure if I like it yet.

7. Olea Olive Leaf Drops - 4 drops (RRP: $6.00 for 12 drops)
These drops are meant to support your immune and cardiovascular system, as well as boost your antioxidant power. I don't have a cold right now, so I will save this for when the virus decides to come for an unwelcomed visit.

Overall, I'm very impressed with this month's bellabox, and I can't wait for next month's! What did you get in yours?


  1. I got almost exactly the same selection as you :) good to hear that you like the NAK polish. A word of warning on the perfume sachet, it can be quite messy and a bit awkward to apply! I suggest cutting the top off and then carefully 'pouring' it on your skin.
