October 2019 Treat Not Trick Bellabox Review

This month's (October) Bellabox is themed Treat Not Trick, and it is full of gorgeous beauty treats! I received a nice selection of products in my Bellabox this month, with a mix of full-sized and sample sized products. Many of the products I received are suited for throwing into a gym or an overnight bag, with most being skincare and sun protection products.

For those who aren't familiar with Bellabox, it is a monthly themed subscription beauty box with 1-2 hero products which are generally full-sized, 3-4 beauty products which will often vary from subscriber to subscriber and there's typically a bonus product which tends to be a sachet sample. I have found that in each box I receive that there is a good mix of on trend, new and classic health and beauty items. I have on numerous occasions purchased products after trying them through Bellabox, 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.

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


Australis Fresh & Flawless Pressed Powder, full-size 12g
This number one selling product from Australis is a long-lasting, mattifying pressed powder. You can use it in place of foundation or as a finishing powder. Packed full of skin perfectors, this staple is cruelty-free and vegan-friendly. I'm not able to provide an in-depth review on this product as I received this product in Light Beige, the lightest of all the options being sent out to subscribers in this month's Bellabox and it is not suited to my naturally tanned complexion. However, I will be giving it away on my Instagram account in the coming weeks. 


Banana Boat Simply Protect Sensitive Body SPF50+, sample size 60g
Banana Boat is one of my trusted go-to suncare brands. I have found their products to be a reliable defence against the harmful rays of the sun. Simply Protect Sensitive is made with naturally-sourced zinc, which helps shield you from the harsh Australian sun. This product also provides SPF50+ and UVA/UVB broad-spectrum protection. When using sun protection creams for best results apply 20min before sun exposure and reapply every 2 hours and after swimming, exercise or towel drying. Also, it doesn't hurt to beef up the level of protection by wearing protective clothing, hats and eyewear. 

Narciso Rodriguez For Her Pure Musc Eau De Parfum, sample size 1ml
I have fallen in love with the sophisticated layered and lasting scent. It is refined and elegant, yet bold and powerful. The light musky, floral, woody fragrance is light enough to wear during the day without being overpowering. The creamy musky scent of this fragrance is intensified by the warmth of your own body, and I would recommend applying it in the creases of your knees and elbows for a longer-lasting, stronger scent. 

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Toner 2X, sample size 15ml
The new Jeju Volcanic Pore Toner 2X formula contains exfoliating ingredients to assist in wiping off dead skin cells while Jeju volcanic clusters and sulfur nutrition effectively work to clear excess sebum. This refreshing swipe-out toner is incredibly easy to use. You shake well before use. Thoroughly soak a cotton pad with toner and gently wipe all over entire face avoiding the eye and lip area.

Innisfree Super Volcanic Clay Mask 2X, sample size 10ml
I adore the original Volcanic Clay Mask from Innisfree, so I was so excited to try this new formula. This product is promoted with so many benefits, including; pore tightening, sebum absorption, skin texture improvement, skin brightening, deep pore cleansing, fine dust removal, cooling effect, skin exfoliation, skin elasticity, and blackhead reduction. I personally really like the cream-type formula which ensures smooth application, and you can feel a cooling sensation as the mask cleanses your pores. I use this product after cleansing. I gently smooth the product over my entire face, avoiding the areas around my eyes and lips. I leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes, and then rinse the mask off with lukewarm water. I use this product every few weeks. However, you could use it up to 1-2 times a week if you wanted to. 


WaterWipes Sensitive Facial Wipes, sample size 2 wipes 
The WaterWipes Facial Wipes have been designed to provide care for all types of skin, including the most sensitive. Formulated with the purest ingredients, these facial wipes contain no fragrance, no alcohol, no soap, no SLS or parabens and no sting. This sample pack is perfect for taking away or throwing into your gym bag for use after a sweaty training session. 

$50 Glam Corner, voucher
GlamCorner is a wardrobe hirer company. The voucher I received offers me $50 off my first month of their premium membership. I'm not 100% sure I will use this voucher by the expiry date as I don't have any need to hirer clothes regularly. 

In 5 words I would describe this month's Bellabox as "everyday treats for your skin". I can't wait to see what beauty products will be in the NovemberBellabox!

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".
