May 2019 Cutting Edge Beauty Bellabox Review

It's all about cutting edge beauty with this month's Bellabox. There was over $35 worth of product in my Bellabox this month, with a selection of full-sized and sample sized products that are suitable for an on the go active lifestyle. There is a little bit of everything, from Mousse Matte Lipstick to a Moisturising Cleanser, Restoring Argan Hair Treatment to a Roll On Rose Eau De Toilette. Almost everything I received this month is either something I've never tried before but have considered trying or is a much-loved product I use.

Here are all the products that I received in my Bellabox this month:

EVERYONE WILL RECEIVE:
STYLondon Hydrating Mousse Matte Lipstick, full-size RRP $15
STYLondon Hydrating Mousse Matte Lipstick, full-size RRP $15
I received this Hydrating Mousse Matte Lipstick from STYLondon in Rose Wood, a pink-brown nude. This lipstick has fast become part of my work makeup routine as it delivers a matte finish with a nourishing feel. Even under the harsh cold autumn conditions and office heating, my lips do not get flaky and dry. The team at Bellabox were lucky enough to get a chance to work with STYLondon for the release, to create custom-made shades just for their members; Pink Peony (a soft pink), Rose Wood (a pink-brown nude), Red Velvet (classic Hollywood red) and Berry Crush (dark red).

UNIQUE TO MY BELLABOX:
La Roche-Posay Effeclar Duo, sample size: 15ml RRP $29.99 for 40ml
La Roche-Posay Effeclar Duo, sample size: 15ml RRP $29.99 for 40ml
La Roche-Posay is one of my top skincare brands, especially when it comes to sun protection. This nourishing treatment is formulated to fight blemishes and target the causes of acne, infection and clogged pores. Its intensive treatment is said to help to calm inflammation and prevent breakouts. It is light in texture and absorbs quickly into the skin; it doesn't leave any residue or create and shine. I thought my skin looked clearer from using this product.
Solinotes Roll On Rose Eau De Toilette, full-size RRP $10 for 10ml
Solinotes Roll On Rose Eau De Toilette, full-size RRP $10 for 10ml
Solinotes’ roll-on fragrance is reminiscent of summer nights, with a unisex floral fragrance that’s light and sweet. It’s topped with notes of bergamot, lychee and rose, with magnolia and cedarwood as base scents. I quite like receiving fragrances in my Bellabox as it allows me to mix and match my fragrances to occasions. Without having to spend lots of dollars on full-size bottles.
QV Intensive Moisturising Cleanser, sample size: 15g RRP $16.30 for 250g
QV Intensive Moisturising Cleanser, sample size: 15g RRP $16.30 for 250g
Gentle and soap-free, QV's cleanser is ideal for dehydrated and sensitive skin; and lightly foaming to cleanse and soften delicately. I've used QV products on and off over the years and also recommend them for people who have sensitive skin.  The higher moisturiser concentration of this product will leave you feeling hydrated for hours, whether you're prepping for bed or seizing the day. Perfect for the colder months when your skin is more likely to dry out.
Inecto Superbly Restoring Argan Hair Treatment, full-size RRP $6.99
Inecto Superbly Restoring Argan Hair Treatment, full-size RRP $6.99
Inecto's Argan hair treatment is a paraben-free formula, 90% of which is made from natural ingredients. Infused with pure Organic Argan Oil the formula is easily absorbed to quench thirsty hair and tame any out of control frizz, resulting in silky-smooth and moisturised locks. This vegan-friendly and suitable for all hair types. It's easy to use too, simply spread the formula generously through towel-dried hair, leave in for 3-5 minutes and then rinse thoroughly with warm water.

BONUS PRODUCT:
John Frieda Sheer Blonde Highlight Activating Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner, Sachets
John Frieda Sheer Blonde Highlight Activating Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner, Sachets
As a bonus product, sachets of John Frieda's Sheer Blonde Highlight Activating Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner is perfect. It's just the right amount to throw into your overnight or gym bag. I've used this product before and can vouch for first hand for how much it nourishes and re-hydrates dry blonde hair while giving highlights a little extra pop for maximum blonde impact.

To sum up what I think of the May Bellabox in 5 words is... "try new beauty products". I can't wait to see what beauty products will be in the June Bellabox!

For those who aren't familiar with Bellabox, it is a monthly themed box with 1-2 hero beauty products which everyone receives, 3-4 beauty 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. With each box you will discover new or classic health and beauty items, some you may have tried before and others you may have never heard of. I have, on numerous occasions, tried products through Bellabox, which I have then then purchased as part of my regular beauty routine because I loved them so much. If you want to treat yourself to a wrapped surprise every month, then Bellabox is the way to go.

Bellabox - RRP: $19.95 ($16.00+ $3.95 Postage and Handling) 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”.
