BellaBox - October 2012

Just got back from my 5-6 weeks holiday today... I wish I was still on holiday, although I do love coming back to a whole heap of parcels and letters. BellaBox was the first parcel I opened. My first impression when I opened the box was "Wow!". In fact, I even said it out loud! 

It was FULL of products... Products that I would actually use too! This month's theme is "Pretty in Pink Party" to celebrate BellaBox's first birthday, as well as to support several worthy causes and charities (they have donated $1 from each October box to the Look Good... Feel Better Foundation).

1. Nak Care 4 Ends Leave In Moisturiser - full size (RRP: $13.95 for 200ml)
I absolutely love trying out hair products that are designed to moisturise hair ends because mine are pretty fried from the chemicals I've been exposing my hair too... However, I got a haircut yesterday whilst in Singapore. I chopped off quite a lot of hair. My hair used to reach my waist and they now reach my armpits. On the bright side, my hair does feel a lot healthier. This product will not go to waste, as my hair is still damaged and I do get tangles quite easily (which I'm assuming is due to it being bleached a couple of times).

2. Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Colour in 150 Petal Pusher - full size (RRP: $13.95 for 9.17ml)
I love polishes and I love Sally Hansen! I am also a sucker for nude pink nail polish. I am already sold on BellaBox <3 =)

3. Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm in Sheer Pink Tint - full size (RRP: $8.99 for 2g)
I love tinted lip products (especially now that I'm lip product crazy). This also came at the right time, as after being on the plane for hours (no thanks to Australia's geographic location) my lips are really dry.

4. DKNY Fresh Blossom EAU De Parfum - 1.5ml (RRP: $135 for 200ml)
This perfume is perfect for spring. It has quite a floral scent and it smells like apple blossom (which one would expect from the name). I have used up quite a few perfume samples during my trip, and I am happy to receive another to replenish my stock.

5. Clinique Turnaround Concentrate Extra Radiance Renewer - 7ml (RRP: $74 for 30ml or $102 for 50ml)
According to the Bellabox info card, this is an exfoliating serum to help promote cell maturation, turnover and removal without causing the slightest irritation to your skin. Exfoliating serum is an interesting concept because when someone says exfoliating, I think scrubs, and I don't normally associate exfoliants to no irritation. I'm looking forward to trying this out.

6. Prestige Cosmetics Skin Nude Foundation in Shade 02 - 6ml (RRP: $24.99 for 25ml)
YES! Another makeup product... and it's a foundation! I use foundation almost everyday, and so have a "few" foundations in my stash. I love trying out new foundations and have never tried a Prestige one before. The shade looks a tad dark for my skin, but I'm sure I'll be able to make it work (or I might wait till the summer sun kicks in and I get a bit darker).

7. Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Instant Action Life Treatment - 5ml (RRP: $100 for 30ml)
This is the only product that I'm not excited for. This is meant to lift and firm your skin by boosting collagen production and elastin retention in the skin (according to Bellabox info card). I'm in my early 20s and do not require any lifting or firming for my skin. You may say, it's never too early to start anti-ageing products, but at $100 for 30ml I don't think it's worth it, especially if it is not designed to target skin problems that I have (uneven skintone, large pores, etc)

8. Chocolatier Pink Heart
Gave this to the bf. A treat for taking me to Europe and Singapore for 5+ weeks. :P

Overall, another great box! I'm so happy with BellaBox and I can't wait for the next one. :D
