Bellabox September 2013

Well I finally received my Bellabox today and it's not even September anymore! I had a friend kindly go and pick it up for me 50kms away because courier services don't deliver to my area out in the boonies.

Can't say I am jumping up and down with excitement because I already knew what was coming from all the blogger reviews I had read.  I thought I would just do a quick share with you all and give you my opinion of how I felt about this month's box.


This month's box is brought to us by Cleo and my overall impression is that this box is meant for a younger audience (and the young at heart), there was nothing in this month's box that interested me.

Cleo Magazine - $6.95 - I don't buy magazines because they are full of advertising and very slim on content. Why should I pay to read advertising?  They should be paying me.

Montagne Jeunesse Dead Sea Pac Masque - sample - this is for oily clogged skin, my skin is dry and mature, I need to add moisture not take it away.

Elegant Touch Envy Wraps - Deckchair Pastels - why would I want to make my nails look like a multi-coloured deckchair?  Gawd these are ugly, I hate stripes.


Schick Hydro Silk Razor - meh!  I'm a disposable kinda gal don't see the point on spending lots of money just to shave my legs.

Eyelure Naturalites - Natural Volume Lash - I don't wear false lashes, my eyes are sensitive and I could never wear anything like this.

Manicare Callous Exfoliator - my heels don't callous, another wasted sample.

Garnier Ambre Solaire Natural Bronzer Spray - If I receive one more can of useless spray tan I will scream, nah forget it, I think I'll scream anyway.  Straight in the bin,  Proud to be Pale!!  As my husband says "Why would you want to look like a Oompa Loompa?  Fake tan looks fake and makes you look an  orange."   He doesn't find women who wear fake tan very attractive (lucky for me).  Be proud of the skin your in I say.

ASAP Pure Mineral Lip Pencil - Berry - the only product I am excited to find in this month's box!


I know a lot of BB customers were really happy with what they received this month AND for $15 this is a great value box but I personally would like my money back.   A box is only as good as it is relevant to the customers interests and BB really missed the mark with me.

If you liked what was in this month's box and would like to try Bellabox for yourself go HERE for more information.

Sorry again for the rather negative review but I have not received one good box this month!

  1. I'm with you Jac, no lashes, magazine and fake tan! I too, love the look of the lip liner!I thought the amount of f/s products were fantastic, and lots of people seem to love it. But I really wouldn't use half of the stuff in this box.

  2. Yep me too, the box is only good if you can use the products. xx

  3. ease up on the nail wraps.. it's not their fault someone put in that horrible green colour lol! My box was the exact same as yours and I was happy to receive it all, never tried falsies so happy to wreck some that I didn't actually 'pay' for :) I've been using a fake tanner about once a week, I have really obvious hair follicles on my legs and being a bit darker {but I certainly try and avoid oompa-loomp status ;)} seems to make them less obvious.. I hope next month's boxes are better to you, I'm still waiting for my FaB box, but am really not excited at all!!!

    I agree - they should completely ban nail wraps and false lashes and black eyeliner from all boxes - they're used as spacefillers! And why send you fake tan when you clearly said in the questionnaire that you don't use it! Bummer about the boxes you got this month; I hope October looks up for you xx

  5. I have already cancelled two subscriptions, going to spend my money on things I really want, I hope October is better too!

  6. Lol glad you liked the box Loz :o)

  7. Awww sad to hear you didn't like the September box! Also what a pain in the ass that Star Track wasn't able to deliver to your house; I didn't quite like them either. Hopefully the October box will be better for you since it's the birthday box!

  8. I hope October's box will be better too, more relevant to my profile instead of what Cleo thinks I should be using. xx


Please leave a comment I love to hear from you and I will reply to all x0x
