Getting Naked with Bellabox: March Review

I was recently contacted by Lauren from Bellabox to review their March box. I'm already subscribed to GlossyBox and love it and have been contemplating signing up to Bellabox as I have seen some great products pop up in past boxes so I was pretty excited when this opportunity came up!

For those of you who haven't yet heard of the craze that is beauty subscription boxes it is a box sent straight to your door filled with 5 high quality beauty product samples for you to try out. 

This months Bellabox was all about getting naked! So naturally it focused on products to enhance your skin and hair. 

Here's what was inside;

It was packaged in bubble wrap and then in a calico Bellabox bag inside the iconic tiffany blue coloured box. There is a card which explains the theme of the box and on the reverse is a list of the products you receive in the box as well as their price and a short description.

1. Yes to Carrots Lip Tint - $9.95 (Full size) 

I was excited to try this product as I have heard a lot about the brand online. I received a pale pink colour called Cotton Candy which gives more of a sheen than a tint of colour but feels very moisturising on the lips. It does have that minty scent and tingling feeling. 

2. Pure Fiji Coconut Hydrating Body Lotion - $29.95 for 354mLs

This light-weight but moisturising body lotion reminds me of holidays in Bali. It has a gorgeous coconut scent which is a favourite of mine for lotions. I love getting these samples as they are so handy to travel with or throw in your handbag to use throughout the day.

3. Planet Eve Daily Face Moisturiser - $59 for 50mL

This face moisturiser combines organic ingredients that are targeted to reduce fine lines and ageing. I'm only 23 so I'm not on the lookout for anti-aging properties but it is a really nice moisturiser and the fact that its all organic is a plus. Another plus (for me anyway) is it smells exactly like play-doh! 

4. U Little Beauty Natural Repair Hair Mask - $19.95 for 100mL

A light-weight, non greasy Australian all natural hair mask. This got me excited, especially given it is a full size product. This makes my hair super soft and healthy looking - love it!

5. Bellamer Eye Balm Sample - $40 for 15gms

This eye balm has the same minty smell and feeling as the lip tint. It feels nice to apply and feels like it would be a great night-time eye cream as it is quite moisturising. 

They also included a Carman's Classic Fruit & Nut Muesli Biscuit which looks really yummy! 

I was really impressed with the quality of the samples in the March Bellabox, especially the fact there was two full sized products and a cookie!

Bellabox is $15AUD a month or $165AUD for 12 months. You can cancel your subscription at any time and the box is delivered to your door (or nearest PO if you aren't home). You can also acquire rewards points by referring friends, giving feedback, shopping their online store or just subscribing which can be used to pay for your next box. 

Bellabox is also available to give as a gift for three, six or twelve months, which I think is a really unique gift idea. 

*Product provided for review, however all opinions are honest and my own*

Hope everyone had a happy and safe Easter break!!
