February 2019 Sun Kissed Bellabox Review

February 2019 Bellabox Beauty Products Subscription Box

Another month has very quickly passed, and I've received another monthly Bellabox chock full of a selection of full-sized and sample sized health and beauty products that suit my natural look and active lifestyle.

Bellabox is a monthly subscription box that gives you an opportunity to discover new or classic beauty items. Each month there is a themed box which includes 1-2 hero products which everyone receives, 3-4 products which will often vary from subscriber to subscriber and if that's not enough there's a bonus product which is generally a sachet sample. If you want to treat yourself to a wrapped surprise every month then Bellabox is the way to go.

In this month’s Sun Kissed-themed Bellabox I received over $70 worth of products designed to help keep the summer vibes lasting just that little bit longer. Once I received the box in the mail I promptly emailed the bellas at Bellabox and told them how much I loved this month's box - that's how much I love it!

Here are all the products that found their way into my Bellabox this month:


Manna Kadar Bloom Mascara

Manna Kadar Bloom Mascara, full-size (Everyone Receives) RRP $29
As I've currently got three mascaras in use at the moment this one has been put to the side for now until I throw at least one out. I have however heard some great feedback about this cruelty and paraben free cutting-edge mascara from Manna Kadar. The hydrating and flake-free inky black formula combined with the uniquely shaped wand is designed to give you lush lashes in just a few strokes.

ModelCo Eyeshadow Trio

ModelCo Eyeshadow Trio, full-size RRP $18
Firstly, I adore most products from ModelCo. Secondly, I tend to go for a natural look. So this trio of on-trend foiled effect eye-shadows by ModelCo had a 50/50 chance of being something I'd actually use.  It was love at first try with the St Barts trio I received. Each shade is loaded with endless pigment. The creamy texture blends with unbelievable ease making this trio perfect for creating a statement look or for subtly enhancing your natural sun-kissed beach babe appearance. In this month's Bellabox you could be receiving St Barts, St Lucia or Mykonos.


Pantene Repair & Protect Foam Conditioner

Pantene Repair & Protect Foam Conditioner, 47g RRP $9.99 for 180ml 
I've not yet tried this product as my hair and scalp is suffering a little from the training I've been doing and I also recently coloured it. This weightless foam conditioner from Pantene promises to repair and protect locks without weighing them down. I look forward to trying it out as I've not used a foam conditioner before.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Sheet Mask – Hydrating
Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Sheet Mask – Hydrating, 1 mask RRP $4.99
I'm not a huge fan of sheet masks as I find them impractical as I like to multi-task when using a face mask. Seriously I suck at relaxing. The Palmer's Coconut Oil Hydrating Formula Sheet Mask is a moisture-drenched treat for dull and dehydrated skin. The coconut oil, water and hyaluronic acid formula re-hydrates your skin whilst the chamomile extract soothes it.

SAMPAR Golden Glow Cream

SAMPAR Golden Glow Cream, sample size 15ml RRP $45 for 30ml
The French know good skin that's for sure. The SAMPAR Golden Glow Cream tinted formula gives an instant sun-kissed glow while delivering 24-hour hydration. Packed with antioxidants, the illuminating moisturising cream can be worn alone (which is how I use it), under makeup, or mixed in with your foundation for added radiance. After using this product just a few times I'm sincerely thinking to purchase the full-sized product because each time I've used it my skin glows with good health.


Pukka Blackcurrant Beauty Tea

Pukka Blackcurrant Beauty Tea, 1 teabag RRP $7.95 20 bags
I don't think I've come across a Pukka tea I haven't liked. Naturally caffeine-free, the tasty, the complexion-enhancing tea contains a cupful of ethically sourced ingredients, including Vitamin C-packed blackcurrant, rosehip, licorice root, fennel seed and beetroot. The only bad thing I have to say about it is that I would have liked to receive more than 1 tea bag.

To sum up what I think of the February Bellabox in 5 words is... "Keeping those good summer vibes". I can't wait to see what will be in the March Bellabox!

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”.
