BellaBox December 2014: What Did I Receive?

As I mentioned in my last post, this was my last BellaBox. I thought that I’d finish this year’s boxes and then give my final review of this service and whether it is worth it. This month’s box made me very sad, in a good way haha. I’ll let you know why further on in this post.

Initial Thoughts:

This box looked fantastic. I could use almost everything and I was excited to use almost everything! A lot of youtubers have received packages filled with the KORA by Miranda Kerr line so I was excited to be testing it out along with them.

KORA Organics by Miranda Kerr – Purifying Day & Night Cream:

This was nothing extraordinary, for me, anyway. The smell lingers and I don’t love the smell. This is also really thin and watery so it’d be best suited to day time, before makeup. I am glad I got to see what the full sized product looks like. I don’t think that this is worth the money, so I am extra glad I got to try it for next to nothing.

RRP: $59.95

Elizabeth Mott It’s So Big Mascara:

When I read that this product is a top seller on Amazon and a cult favourite, I was intrigued. I used this pretty much immediately and I didn’t use any eyeliner, so that I could see the effect that the mascara gave on its own. It was fantastic! It made my lashes look feathery and fluttery, long and thick. I am really pleased with this and I would almost definitely buy the full size!

RRP: $25

Enbacci Pore Minimiser:

I used this product immediately, as well. This product smells like the LUSH Facial Mask – Cosmetic Warrior and its not a nice smell, especially for a product that is meant to be used in porous places like your nose. I did, however, really enjoy this product. I did notice a difference in how my makeup sat on my face. This little tube is worth $6 and using it every day, I’ve used it kind of quickly so I do not know whether it is completely worth it but I usually go by, ‘if it works, it is worth it’.

RRP: $30

Kerastase Paris Nutritive Nectar Thermique:

I haven’t used this product yet but it looks promising! I plan on using it tonight so if it is any good, I’m sure I will mention it in a post later on. It is a leave in conditioner and nothing seems to work on my incredibly dry hair, hopefully this will be something that makes a difference!

RRP: $45

Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash:

There’s nothing really to say about this other than I’m happy to have it to try out as I have been experiencing some break outs!

RRP: $13.99

Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Foundation:

I do really want to try this foundation, it is just a shame that this shade is way too dark for me!

RRP: $23.95

Thoughts:

This box has made me sad because I love most of the products. I suppose that it is good to end this experience on a high but it is a shame to see this box go. I have had such bad experiences with this box since I got it and I know that I could be spending my money elsewhere so that’s a real plus. I’m sure I’ll find another subscription box in the future and hopefully it won’t be so bad!

Would I recommend subscribing to Bellabox? No. If I’m willingly unsubscribing, that should be a hint that I’m not really enjoying the experience. There have been some ups and mostly downs but I am glad that I got to experience it for as long as I did!
