[UNBOXING] by C: Be Beautiful, Surprise Yourself!

The first Bellabox of the year has arrived (finally!) with a new look and a new slogan "Be beautiful, surprise yourself". This month's theme is "Small Changes" and that is exactly what I need. Taking baby steps will help me to reach my goals in 2014, that is to stay fit & healthy. Let's see what January's BB has to offer!






1. Scandalous Rock Chick Wave Spray 150ml RRP $17.95
This is the first thing I saw and was super excited about it. I've been wanting to try out 'sea salt sprays' or 'texture sprays' and this seemed to fall into that category. However, I trialled it once and I'm sad to say that I did not get Rock Chick Waves.

2. Avene Soothing Moisture Mask 50ml RRP $41.95
Just another 'meh' Avene product that I could do without. I'm not a huge fan of Avene skincare range so I wasn't too excited to see this.


3. Banana Boat Everyday SPF 30+ 400g RRP $21.00
I still have a full bottle of sunscreen that I got in last year's August BB so this was an unnecessary add-on bonus item for me.

4. Model Co Fat Lash Volumising Mascara 11ml RRP $20.00
My first Model Co product! I love the chubby packaging which reminds me of Covergirl's Lash Blast Mascara. Although I am worried that this isn't waterproof, if the brush and formula is anything like the Lash Blast, then I'll be adding another mascara to my favourites list. Fingers crossed!


5. Vaseline Aloe Fresh Daily Body Lotion SPF15 300ml RRP $7.68
When it comes to moisturising my body, I tend to not care at all. It takes me a good couple years to finish off a full sized body lotion. I know, it's bad. But this petite-sized, travel-friendly bottle is great to carry around and apply even as a sunscreen substitute.

6. Avene Hydrance Optimale Rich Hydrating Cream 40ml RRP $52.95
They couldn't stop at one. They just had to send me two Avene products. Yay for me.

7. INM Natural Manicure Pedicure Nail File RRP $1.75
This product is just the cherry on top to this disappointing box for this month.


As you can tell I am not at all pleased with this month's Bellabox. The only thing I was (note past tense) excited for was the Wave Spray, which then turned out to be disappointing. Oh, I take that back. The other thing I'm excited about is their new "box-less" packaging. I hated the old brown box packaging which I couldn't think of a good use for, and now I don't have to feel guilty for not recycling the box.

Did you guys get better products then I did this month? I sure hope you did!

Love, Court

  1. It seems that bellabox is a hot or miss, even this month most of the subscribers got wonderful boxes but yours look not so exciting. BB send you A nail file as product- That's not fair.

    1. Yea exactly. All my recent ones have mostly been misses unfortunately. I've been tempted to unsubscribe too often but still very hopeful for what the next month's Bellabox may have.
