September Bellabox Review

September Bellabox Review Beauty Skincare
This month’s ‘Spring Shakeup’ Bellabox is packed full of products for kissable lips to refreshed skin. Perfect for giving your skincare and beauty regime a little shakeup. In my Bellabox I received a selection of sample sized and full sized products valued at over $65. Many of which suit my typical natural look and approach to beauty.

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


Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint, full-size 6ml
Everyone will receive this lip paint product by Tarte. I received it in the nude shade of Bestie which I find very flattering. I love the colour and staying power of this product is pretty good. The formula is long lasting, quick drying and comfortable to wear. You can combine with a lip liner for a polished stand-out pout or blot it on for a more natural look for everyday wear.


Burt's Bees Moisturising Lip Balm, full-size

I received this tint free tube of soothing lip balm in Wild Cherry. With a matte finish and moisturising balm texture, it glides on smoothly. I found the natural flavour/scent not too sweet and just a tad tangy. The formula includes all-natural oils and antioxidant-rich vitamin E which hydrates and rejuvenates lips. Tuck a tube into a pocket or purse to pamper your lips on the go.

Vitamasque Mask, 1 sheet mask

Treat your skin to the Vitamasques Pomegranate Firming Lifting Mask, a luxurious face mask inspired by Korean-skincare technology to restore a smooth, supple complexion. The treatment utilises extracts of Pomegranate to moisturise and condition your skin, whilst delivering a tightening action for skin that appears refined and toned. I regularly use masks to combat dryness and other skin concerns that pop up.

Pür Cosmetics Fully Charged Mascara, sample size 4ml
This anti-ageing mascara formula contains a revolutionary positively charged matrix that attracts to each individual lash to strengthen, thicken, lengthen and separate for unparalleled performance. Fortified with a specialized blend of provitamin B5 and Biotinoyl Tripeptide-1 to help condition and strengthen to prevent lash loss. I also love the sample size as it's perfect for throwing into the gym bag to use post workout.
Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser, full-size 177ml
The clear gel has a strong fruity smell, lathers up nicely and rinses off cleanly. It leaves my skin smelling and feeling nice and clean. This is a great everyday cleanser. It is also made with 90 per cent of naturally derived ingredients.


Natures Commonscents Goats Milk Body Wash, Sachet

I'm a fan of goats milk products for cleansing my skin. The only thing I don't like about this product is that it isn't a full-sized product, a sachet just isn't enough. That being said the sachet is perfect for throwing into your gym or overnight bag. 

To sum up what I think of the September box in five words "full of natural beauty staples ". I can't wait to see what will be in the October Bellabox next month.

Bellabox - RRP: $19.95 ($16.00+ $3.95 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”.
