When I received an email from Bellabox advising that there is a limited edition Mother's Day box for $49.95, I wasn't all that interested to be honest. I clicked the link in the email, which brought me to the Bellabox Mother's Day box page. I was sold almost instantly when I saw that a Mimco pouch was included. I think that alone has got to be worth $49.95. So I bit the bullet and purchased one.. for myself... because dogs count as furry babies, thereby making me a mum... right?
As per my normal beauty box subscription reviews (I thought I'd write this post like it's a review), these are the items that were included in my Bellabox Mother's Day Edition box...
1. Mimco Mim pouch - RRP: $69.95
2. Luxe Hanoi City Guides - RRP: $12.99
3. Wotnot facial wipes - 5 wipes - RRP: $7.95 for 25 wipes
4. Harnn Cymbopogon Hand Cream - RRP: $38.50 for 50g
This is some pricey hand cream. Not sure how it smells, as there's a seal that needs to be broken. I might give this to my mother, as I rarely use hand creams.
5. Bellabox Pout Pencil in Ruby Tuesday - RRP: $14.99
I highly doubt I'd use this, as I'm not one for "loud" colours. Not quite sure what I'll do with this, as I can't see my mum using this either.
6. Jane Tran hair clips
Not sure how much these are worth, but I'll most likely use these to keep my annoying hair out of my face.
7. Natio Nail Colour in Ruby - RRP: $9.95 for 15ml
I wish I received this box before the long weekend, as my mother in law is in Sydney and was looking for a red nail polish for a pedicure. I managed to find three polishes to spare, and I would have given her this one as well, as I don't use red polishes much!
8. Janesce Softening Refresher - 25ml - RRP: $31.95 for 100ml
This contains rosewater and rose oil, which smells amaaaazing (I'm currently in love with rose smelling things). It kind of reminds me of Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist fragrance wise.
9. Rubifresh Cleansing Oil - RRP: $23.00
"Many cleansing products strip away the skin's PROTECTIVE oils, moisture & environmental barrier, telling our skin to produce more oil to protect itself. This refreshing blend of OLIVE, citrus & APRICOT oils, plus certified organic lemon-scented TEA TREE, will protect & nourish your skin, while removing makeup, dirt & grime. Massage onto face daily, wipe off with a warm damp face cloth for baby smooth skin."
I found some information on the Rubifresh website and I can't say I'm all too excited about this. The tea tree ingredient is really throwing me off, as I hate the smell of tea tree despite it's benefits. Has anyone used this? Does it stink of tea tree?
10. Indio Renew Cream - 10ml - RRP: $109 for 50ml
Containing AHA, Vitamin B3 and Honeysuckle extract, this is an anti-ageing product best used at night. I'm quite excited to give this a go, as my Kate Somerville RetAsphere is nearly empty :(
My skin leans oily than dry, so I'm not sure if I'll use this hydrating spray. Might either give this to mum or save it for when I get extremely dry, itchy skin after using a self-tanner.
12. La Clinca Gly C Refine Micro Dermabrasion Facial Scrub - 10ml - RRP: $42 for 100ml
Being so picky when it comes to facial scrubs (well, I'm not THAT picky, I just like a scrub with lots of grit), I'm unsure if I will love this, especially when I've already found my HG scrub (Clinique Face Scrub for Men). I will take this with me when I go overseas in June though, as it's the perfect travel size.
13. Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream - 3ml - RRP: $49 for 118ml
Ah! The highly hyped Egyptian Magic Skin Cream! I've never tried this skin cream before, but I'm looking forward to despite the sachet.
So that's it for the limited edition Mother's Day Bellabox! I think this box is definitely worth the $49.95, even though there are quite a number of items I wouldn't use. If only Bellabox regularly releases boxes of the same quality....
Did you purchase the Mother's Day box? What do you think of it?
