July Bellabox Review

July Bellabox Review

This month’s ‘Global Glamour’ Bellabox is packed full of products from a beautiful floral blush to a marshmallow fragrance. Perfect for taking care of yourself during a short or long-haul flight. In my Bellbox I received a selection of great products valued at over $45 from delicious tasting crisps to a facial exfoliant that will leave your skin smooth and radiant, and everything in-between.

Here are all the products I received in my Bellabox this month and my thoughts on them...

Manna Kadar Blossom Floral Blush Compact, sample size 3.2g
To help achieve healthy glowing skin, Manna created the Blossom Floral Compact. You can use the 3 shades separately, or blend them together to create a youthful glow with the perfect balance of colour and highlight. You can brighten your look by applying this multi-functional powder to your eyes, cheeks, and body. I currently have several highlighters, bronzers and blushes on the go at the moment so I've put this product aside for use in the future.

Nerium Eye-V Moisture Boost Hydrogel Patches, sample size 1 patch

The Nerium Eye-V  Moisture Boost Hydrogel Patches promises to boost the supply of moisture in the area around your eyes through utilizing its powerful age-defying ingredients. It prevents swelling of the eyes to make them look healthy. You can also use the patches before a night out and after long hours of travelling for a refreshed and youthful look. I personally use patches like these when going from a training session or race to an event where I want to look my best.

Swisse Bamboo Facial Exfoliant, full-size 125mL

Swisse Bamboo Face Exfoliant is an uplifting facial scrub that promises to detoxify skin and whilst gently removing dead skin cells. The formula is enriched with natural ingredients, including micro bamboo particles, sugar maple and orange and bilberry fruit acids to exfoliate and myrrh to soothe. It contains natural ingredients, hasn't been tested on animals and is eco-friendly. I used a 10c size dollop of the product without cleansing beforehand, and I would recommend that you use a cleanser prior then use the exfoliant. As I used it in the morning, I used a lightweight hydrating day cream afterwards. The Swisse Bamboo Face Exfoliant left my skin feeling smooth, soft and clean. I can see this product being great for removing all the sunscreen and zinc from your face. This product can also be used by the guys, not just the girls, as the scent is unisex.

Glamourflage Dreamy Annie Facial Foam, sample size 30mL

Being a sample size product this facial foam is perfect for throwing into your gym bag to wash your face post workout, or to throw into your overnight bag. The rich facial foam dissolves dirt and grease from the skin, helping your skin look and feel, fresh and clean without drying it out. Simply lather a desired amount of product onto face and gently massage for a few minutes, then rinse off with water.

MOR Eau De Parfum, sample size 5mL in Marshmallow

I adore this perfume, it's so deliciously sweet. This scent may not be for everyone and I know I'll certainly choose when to wear it based on the nature of the occasion and what clothes I'm wearing. One or two dabs of this parfum will have you covered for the whole day, so do go easy on it.

Emily Crisps, full-size 30g in Crunch Red Apple

These completely natural crisps have no added sugar and are gluten-free. What they do have is that they are high in fibre and contains naturally occurring sugars. I personally don't eat fruit crisps often, however, I look forward to snacking on these as a post-training session treat soon. Subscribers will receive either Red Apple, Fig Banana or Pineapple.


Avène Cicalfate Repair Cream, Sachet

This is a small sample and for repair cream, it does make it difficult to gauge how effective the product is. As a bonus product, it's great. It's perfect to throw into your overnight bag so you're not having to take a full-size product with you for a weekend away.

To sum up what I think of the July box in five words "feel like a high flyer". I can't wait to see what will be in the August Bellabox next month.

Bellabox - RRP: $17.95 ($15.00+ $2.95 P&H) on a subscription plan, billed monthly, but you can cancel anytime. For $5 off your first women's monthly box subscription use the promo code “NICTATT”.
