June 2019 Travel Ready Treasures Bellabox Review

June 2019 Travel Ready Treasures Bellabox Review

The June Bellabox is all about Travel Ready Treasures. I received over $50 worth of product in my Bellabox this month, with a selection of full-sized and sample sized products. Many of the products I received are suited to throwing into a gym or an overnight bag, and are easy to use on the go to enhance a natural beauty look. I'm mostly excited this month about receiving products like the sleep mask and lip/cheek crayon which make looking fresh-faced easier through either being multi-purpose or working while you sleep (literally).

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


Dr Botanicals Pomegranate Superfood Regenerating Sleeping Mask, full-size RRP $21.90 for 30ml
Dr Botanicals Pomegranate Superfood Regenerating Sleeping Mask is a hydrating overnight treatment for thirsty dull skin. Pomegranate (the main active ingredient) is high in antioxidants that aim to nourish the skin. Like me, you're probably wondering how do I use a sleep mask? It's easy really, you apply a thin layer onto clean, dry skin. Allow the mask to sink into the skin and leave overnight. Cleanse as usual the following morning. Use 2 - 3 times per week. After using this mask I woke to skin that looked and felt hydrated and refreshed.

Seraphine Botanicals Lip/Cheek Crayon, full-size RRP USD $24 for 2.5g
A long-lasting lip & cheek crayon with a velvety, semi-matte finish. Infused with Quince Extract and Argan Oil to give skin a healthy vitamin boost and the ultimate hydration. To use on your cheeks, you glide the crayon onto the apples of your cheeks and quickly blend for a soft, buttery finish. For your lips just stroke the crayon onto your lips and use your finger to smudge it, bringing out the velvet, matte texture.


White Glo Charcoal Toothpaste, sample size: 24g RRP $5.99 for 150ml
In our bathroom cabinet, there is a selection of products from White Glo. I have used this toothpaste before and have noticed a difference to the whiteness of my teeth. It has helped to remove the coffee and tea stains from my teeth. It's the activated charcoal particles in the toothpaste that help to detoxify your mouth and remove deep stains and colouration.

St. Tropez Instant Finishing Tan Gloss, sample size: 30ml RRP $19.99 for 100ml
St. Tropez is my go-to brand when it comes to a sunless sunkissed tan. I have never before tried their Instant Finishing Gloss until now. The Instant Tan Finishing Gloss is a high-shine wash-off self-tanner that gives skin an instant, glowing tan. The lightweight formula can be applied over an existing tan for a glossy finish or on bare skin to accentuate and illuminate the skin. This instant shine formula washes off easily with soap and water. Making it perfect for when you want to look sunkissed for an event but don't want the ongoing commitment of fake tan.

Dr Lewinn's Ultra R4 Restorative Day Cream, sample size: 3g RRP $74.95 for 50g
Dr LeWinn's Ultra R4 Restorative Day Cream is formulated to address the four significant aspects of skin care: rejuvenation, repair, radiance and refined texture. The cream is lightly fragranced with a creamy and thick consistency. You only need to use a little to cover your face and neck. The cream does stay slightly tacky on the skin but does eventually absorb in providing intense hydration as well as anti-ageing benefits.


Fanola Vegan Shampoo and Mask, Sachets
This is not a product suited for the gym or overnight bag. You need to understand how to use these products to get the best out of them, and not end up looking like a purple grape at the same time. Fanola has outlined how best to achieve soft and silky beautifully toned blonde hair with their No Yellow Vegan Shampoo and Mask on their website. If you really like the product, they also have provided a voucher for $10 off your next online order.

Naked Wines, voucher 
I very rarely drink wine, let alone have use for a coupon for $100 off when I spend just over $150. It's nice to receive this as a bonus item; however, I think I'll find someone more likely to use it than myself to pas sit onto.

To sum up what I think of the May Bellabox in 5 words is... "looking good on the go". I can't wait to see what beauty products will be in the July 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".
