Do you love grooming products but sometimes find it too hard to choose what's right for you? Have you ever spent money on an expensive grooming or beauty product only to find out it was a real dud? Well, now you can trial the best products on the market by receiving a bellabox in the mail once a month.
bellabox is a subscription service for women, men and babies that sends a surprise box of sample goodies to your home each month. I had heard about this brand a while ago and when they asked me to trial a box I was delighted. It arrived in a lovely blue box, with 5 great products to trial. Out of the five only one wasn't suitable to me (I'm in my late 50's) however I have passed it on to one of my daughter's who has a skin problem.
Here's an example of some of what was in the box:
LUNA by LUNA Eyeshadow
I'm totally wrapped in this product, but not the colour for me. What I do love about this eyeshadow though is how easy it is to apply, there's hardly any fallout and it's silky and light. Also the product is cruelty free. The colour I received was "Miracle".
MODELCO Highlighting Shimmer Whip
Totally in love with this one. It's extremely light and and great for highlighting. I'll be buying a full size of this little beauty.
SUBI Perfect Pimple Batch
I'm 57 I don't have pimples. However, one of my daughter's suffers with outbreaks at times so I'm passing this one on to her for feedback.
RRP $39.95 for 3 x full size 18 patch packs
Liar Wrinkle Cheater Eye Serum
They claim it is clinically proven to reduce wrinkle depth by 22% when used twice daily for three weeks. Not sure if it's actually working yet but today when I was at the red lights I saw a family member walking by who I haven't seen for a few months and she yelled out "you look so young" which lifted my ego as we blew kisses to each other and I drove off. I must say I do like using this serum and it is soothing. I checked on their website and noticed it is sold out at time of writing so they must be doing something right.
Coco & Eve Like A Virgin Super Nourishing Coconut & Fig Hair Masque
Made with raw virgin coconuts from Bali adds shine and softness to hair. They also strengthen and repair the hair by preventing hair breakage and split ends. The coconut penetrates deep into the follicles to help promote a healthy scalp and prevent problems such as dandruff.

As you can see from my photo above this box comes packed with goodies, some are sample sizes and other full size. You can see the full range of samples in the photo I took above.
Some of the items in this box:
Kohle Glow Bundle Charcoal and Coconut Facemask 100ml $36.95 and Charcoal Konjac Sponge $17 (used to wash off the face mask).
This mask dries quickly and certainly feels like it is doing some good, the sponge is used to remove the mask and exfoliate the skin. This mask is designed to use at night as it can cause some redness although I never experienced that
Bellabox Reusable Bamboo Travel Cup (full size) $30
This reusable cup is made with bamboo fibre and designed to reduce single-use waste. It's pretty cute too.
Mary Grace Bulgarian Rose Otto Face Elixir (full size) $35
An essential oil that has been carefully crafted with the finest Bulgarian Rose Otto Essential Oil, Wheat Germ, Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil and Rosehip. This is a beautiful oil and I love facial oils, in fact my morning ritual is to wash my face in very cold water with a drop of oil rubbed in my palms which I spread across my face with the water. Once I pat my face dry I use more oil. It's my favourite beauty routine and this oil sits well with it.
Global Nature Pure Natural Collagen Booster (full size) $39.95
Certified vegan and rich in silica this booster aids collagen production for healthy hair, skin and nails as well as maintaining joints and cartilage. I was reluctant to try it at first thinking it may taste really bad but it's actually very delicate in flavour.
Plunkett's Vita E Pure Vitamin E Super Concentrated Oil (full size) $17.45
Perfect for a woman like me that had major surgery earlier this year and now has a scar half way across my stomach. This is a thick oil made of pure Vitamin E and enriched in Rosehip oil.
Jurlique Sweet Violet & Grapefruit Mist (sample size) RRP for full is $37
A lovely hydrating mist with a floral and citrus fragrance. Perfect for a quick fresh up.
Scentered Sleep Well Therapy Balm (sample size) RRP Full price $29.95
This divine bar is wonderful just before bed with its infused blend of oriental floral lavender and 14 different essential oils. I rub it on my temples and wrists.
The box contained more smaller samples however those above are my standouts.
