WON: BellaBox Limited Edition Couples Box

This is the third BellaBox I've won. I don't normally win so many things, so I'm feeling lucky! Maybe I should go buy a lotto ticket. This competition was twitter based, and the requirements was to follow BellaBox on twitter, tweet why you want to win one of five bellaboxes, and add the hash tag #bbcouplesbox. My answer was "I want to win a from so I can pamper myself and force my bf to use products instead of a wet face towel & soap."

The LE Couples BellaBox is a black box with a whole heap of goodies inside, instead of the regular turquoise-green and brown box.

This is what was in my BellaBox LE Couples Box:
1. A'kin pureMAN Orange, Ginseng & Spice Visibly Fit 24 Hour Moisturizer 50ml (RRP: $24.95)
"A lightweight face moisturizer that will leave skin soft, smooth and refreshed. Easily absorbed and non-greasy." A much needed skin care product for him, I reckon! Considering that he doesn't have anything in his skin care regime... with the exception of a face washer and water.

2. PureDKNY EDP 1.5ml (RRP: $80 for 30ml)
I received this sample in my April BellaBox (the first box I won, which convinced me to subscribe to BellaBox). I loved it and I'm glad to have another sample.

3. Ulta3 Nail Colour (Shiraz) 13ml (RRP: $2)
I also received this in my April BellaBox in the same colour. I will probably give this away to Priscilla or my mum.

4. Phytomer Hydracontinue Instant Moisture Cream for Normal to Combination Skin 15ml (RRP: $85 for 50ml)
"This intense moisture instantly soothes and hydrates the skin. Enriched with Pheohydrane, a 100% natural marine ingredient, it helps maintain the skins natural hydrating functions. Skin is supple, quenched and lastingly comfortable." Woohoo! Another moisturizer product to try out for my dry skin caused by this freezing cold wintery weather.

5. OP Therapy Summer Glow Sea Salt Scrub Pineapple & Papaya 75ml (RRP: $19)
"This divine exfoliating treatment combines the purifying properties of natural Australia sea salt with the exfoliating properties of papaya and pineapple extracts. Summer Glow will leave your skin glowing, feeling silky soft and renewed after just the first massage." I love a good exfoliant. A good exfoliant would be something that is quite gritty, as I like to feel like a product is working. I think this would be a product that both of us can share as well... God knows when the last time he exfoliated... (Probably never) 

6. Hollywood Feet Secret Velvet Cushions (2 pairs - $9.95)
"Say goodbye to the burning pain in the balls of your feet." The balls of my feet do get quite sore when I wear heels, so I will be using this. However, I only tend to wear heels in summer because winter means cold and rain, which in turn means if I wear sexy heels, I will get cold feet and I might slip due to the wet ground caused by rain, which in turn means I'll be even more uncomfortable and potentially embarrassed from a wet bum and a twisted ankle.... 

7. One Skin System Renewal Cleanse (10ml - RRP: $39 for 50ml) and Active C Scrub (15g - RRP:$69 for 60g)
One Skin System Renewal Cleanse is step 1, and is described as "an intense cellular clean, helps to remove dirt, make-up, dead skin cells, excess oils, pollutants and impurities". It sounds really appealing to me, and I can't wait to use it. The Active C Scrub is step 2 in the One Skin System, which promises to "intensively exfoliate, stimulate, and activate the skin's natural vitality" Another exfoliant! I'm in exfoliant heaven! =D 

8. SkinVital Hydraflex - Multi-peptide Flex-cloth Mask 25ml (RRP: $14.99 3x30ml satchets)
Received this mask in my BellaBox May edition. I was so excited, as I finally used a mask a few days ago and I was like "YAY! I can write about my experience with this mask", and then I realized I didn't use this mask, I used the "Facial Fresh Cloth Facial Treatment Mask - Tea Tree" mask that came in my June box (which by the way did not smell anything like Tea Tree... a plus in my books). Will be using this mask next though!

9. Eau Thermale Avene Shaving Foam 50ml (RRP: $21.95 for 200ml)
"A soothing, anti-irritating shaving foam for sensitive and problem skin." This will be great for him when he travels. I'm pretty sure he uses shaving cream when he shaves.... I asked, and HE DOES NOT USE SHAVING CREAM WHEN HE SHAVES!?! This is worse than what I thought...

10. Kosmea Skin Clinic Rescue Balm 50ml (RRP: $24.95)
"For all skin emergencies, naturally repairs, soothes and protects skin..." According to BellaBox's website, this is for him... But I kind of want it... :P Sharing is caring right?

Thanks BellaBox for yet another amazing box!
