May 2020 Bellabox Review

May 2020 Bellabox Review

My Bellabox this month (May) came chock full of a range of skincare products. There are skincare hero products from Peter Thomas Roth, glam makeup from Essence, haircare from John Frieda, and much more.  In my Bellabox this month there is well over $35 worth of products.

As we live life holed up in our cozy homes, the need for delivered treats and self-care is even more important. This month's Bellabox has me covered from base to finish, thanks to a lovely range of skin and hair care treats. 

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


Essence Cosmetics Holo WOW! Sparkle Stick, full-size 6g, RRP $7
Bellas this month will receive one Essence product, I received the Holo WOW! Sparkle Stick. No beauty lover can ever have too many highlighters, can they? You can create your ultimate virtual party look with the Essence Cosmetics Holo WOW! Sparkle Stick. This shimmer product is cruelty-free and is made with high quality ingredients so that your look will last all night long. 


Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask Extreme De-Tox™ Hydrator, sample size 14ml, RRP $84 for 150ml
This calming formula is made with botanical extracts from cucumber, papaya and aloe vera that soothes the skin, especially after sun exposure, waxing and facials. You just cover your face with the cool and refreshing gel, wait 10 min and wash it off. This is the type of facemask I would use after a day out in the elements to re-hydrate my skin. It also smells amazing! 

Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench® Hyaluronic Cloud Cream Hydrating Moisturizer, sample size 7.5ml, RRP $81 for 48ml
Just a very small amount of this product goes far. After the first time I used it my face felt so fresh and silky smooth. When the team at Bellabox refers to it as a "heavenly moisturiser" they are not wrong, it is lightweight and you can feel the burst of hydration. This moisturising formula is rich in antioxidants thanks to Elderberry, which fights ageing and wrinkles.

John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon, sample size 30ml, RRP $16.99 for 50ml
I received a sachet sample of this product late last year. John Frieda's Frizz Ease Secret Weapon is a finishing creme that eliminates frizz and adds moisture. Frizz caused by humidity is an issue for me every-time I straighten my hair and even when I don't. This crème helps to camouflage imperfections such as flyaways, static frizz and split ends, for a sleek and polished finish, with a silky touch. 

Bean Body Caffeine Eye Cream, full-size 20ml, RRP $15.95
I typically love receiving any products that are vegan friendly and cruelty free, and contain natural ingredients. I was head over heel for the Bean Body Face Scrub I received a little while ago, and the same goes for the Caffeine Eye Cream. It is easy to use, just squeeze 2-3 pea sized drops on to the tips of your fingers, massage into a smooth layer and then dab around your eye region. Leave it to soak in while it targets tired areas, dark circles and fine lines.

  • A 12ml sachet of Palmolive Oil Infusions Body Moisturiser in Rose with Macadamia Oil 

In 5 words I would describe this month's Bellabox as "my face feels so hydrated". I can't wait to see what beauty products will be inside my Bellabox in June!

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.
