June 2020 Bellabox Review

June 2020 Bellabox Review

As we live life holed up in our cozy homes delivered treats and reminders for self-care are appreciated. My Bellabox this month (June) featured a selection of skincare and beauty products perfect for the colder Winter weather. Including Highlighting Shimmer Whip from Model Co, a sample of Pantene Pro-V Blends Micellar Gentle Nourishing Conditioner, Espresso Lip Scrub from Bean Body, and more. There is well over $40 worth of products in my Bellabox this month.

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


ModelCo Highlighting Shimmer Whip, sample size 7ml, RRP $15 for 15ml

I received this liquid luminiser in my Bellabox last Winter. It glides onto skin effortlessly, giving you that subtle strobing effect that leaves the skin looking radiant. This gorgeous shimmer whip is perfect for adding glow and adding lustre to your skin. For a subtle all-over glow simply mix your foundation and Shimmer Whip together. For highlights, I recommend using either a blush brush or makeup sponge. You can apply it to the top of your cheekbones, down the centre of your nose, on your brow bones, your chin, and d├ęcolletage.

Pantene Pro-V Blends Micellar Gentle Nourishing Conditioner, sample size 100ml, RRP $12.99 for 300ml

Earlier this year I received the Pantene Pro-V Blends Micellar Gentle Cleansing Shampoo, I was excited to receive the Conditioner as I was relatively happy with the shampoo. After just one wash, I did notice a difference; my hair felt smoother and smelled terrific. You don't need to use much of the product - just like the shampoo a little goes a long way. 

L'Occitane Immortelle Reset Serum, sample size 5ml, RRP $95 for 30ml

This is quite possibly one of my favourite serums, I love everything about it, including the light water-gel texture, absorbing into your skin quickly and easily. The fragrance is absolutely divine too. It is straightforward to use, apply to freshly cleansed skin, avoiding contact with eyes. According to the team at L'Occitane, the Immortelle Reset formula is most effective at night, when followed by your regular serum and moisturiser routine, but is also gentle enough to be used in the morning before makeup.

Bean Body Esspresso Lip Scrub, full-size 15ml, RRP $12.95

I knew from the sneak peeks that this was a potential product in my Bellabox and I had my fingers crossed that I would receive it. I was so excited to find it in my Bellabox. Like most lip scrubs apply a small amount of this product to your lips using your finger and scrub before removing with water or a tissue. After the first time using this product, I could see my lips were so smooth, and all the dry flakes were gone. Enriched with a lip-loving blend of Coconut Oil and Cocoa Butter, the scrub is an absolute must-have. 

Bean Body Esspresso Lip Balm, full-size 15ml, RRP $9.95

Use the Bean Body Esspresso Lip Balm for what I like to call a double shot espresso lip treat. This vegetarian, cruelty-free, GMO-free and paraben-free formula is a delicious blend of organic cold-pressed Coconut Oil, nourishing Papaya, Beeswax, Olive Oil and Sweet Almond Oil. It is an ultra-hydrating balm that softens, conditions and smooths lips, leaving you with an irresistibly kissable pout. 


  • A sachet of Plunkett's Vita E Natural Vitamin E Quick Dry Oil

In 5 words I would describe this month's Bellabox as "helping my skin through winter". I can't wait to see what beauty products will be inside my Bellabox in July!

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. 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 an excellent 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 undoubtedly something I would recommend to you. 

Bellabox - RRP: $19.95 (includes Postage) on a subscription plan, billed monthly, but you can cancel anytime.
