So I set up this blog for AGES now. And initially I wanted to make it a pure nailblog….
And then, my randomness got the better of me and I decided to go for a variety instead (just look at my IG -@whimsypoppysmic).
Anyhow… I also finally got down to writing my very first post! Wootwoot~
So here it is….. *drumroll*
I have been on Bellabox’s mailing list for months now. I first discovered it while scrolling through blogs, while wondering are there any beauty boxes exclusive to Singapore. And then I came across several ones. My heart set on bellabox, mainly due to the reviews I read.
But I wasn’t sure yet… even with the multiple first box promo price and several promotions, I still haven’t decided.
Then I saw the beautiful blue box for the month of August, the Peranakan-inspired prints. And there was an email saying if I were to sign this month, I will get an additional bonus giftbox. Hey, who doesn’t like extra beauty stuff? 😀
And so I caved in….
And I opened it to see a purple tissue paper with a floral sticker. Purple is my all – time favorite color, so I’m always happy to see a lil purple.
And also a card with the 4 different ways to say “hello”, based on our 4 main ethnic groups.
Let’s take a look at the specifics…
1) Dermedex Anti-Acne Challenge Pack
A sample-sized (5g each) Bio’Tox Cleanser and Refining Cream 2, both suitable for all skin types. Product of France.
I have yet tried this, it claims “clearer skin in just 3 days” ! Gotta give it a shot!
There is also a code (on one of those cards above) that gives you a special perks and benefits once you like their facebook page and quote them the magic word!
Bio’Tox Cleanser: 50ml/ $50
Refining Cream 2: 30ml/ $69
2) my LIFE INC. TEAISM brew
I was totally excited to get this!!! I saw this on someone’s blog a long while back and was hoping to try this someday. Annnnnnd I got them in this month’s Bellabox!
The 2 flavors I got are Ginger Black Tea (for comfort) and Blueberry Tea (for protection).
I’m gonna try them this weekend!
$1.50 per wand
3) Wotnot Facial Wipes (5 wipes)
I love the packaging of this, especially the matte smoothness. It’s a “100% soft natural fibre wipe” that contains “all-natural ingredients such as aloe, rosehip oil & Vitamin E”.
It’s said to remove impurities, makeup and even water proof mascara!
I sneaked a lil touch (if there’s such a word) and it’s so moist!
I’m very interested in this. My current makeup wipes are the ones from Bioré, maybe a switch? We’ll see….
4) Make Up For Ever Mini Rouge Artiste Intense
Intense red! I’ve never dared to make a lippy statement. I often opt for more subtle nude-pinkish shades.
I don’t know if I will ever try this… but hey, there’s always a first right?
5) ModelCo Cheek & Lip Tint
Smells like cherries!! That’s the first thing when I unscrewed it. Again, not something I’m used to (I guess that’s why I subscribed to Bellabox in the first place right!). Maybe I’ll give it a shot!
I tested both the lippie and the tint on my hand….
Both glided smoooooothly! The lipstick more so.
6) L’egere Aqua Smoothing Essence-in CC & Magic Skin Beautifier CC Cream
If you don’t already know, CC is the new BB. It’s said to brighten and even out the skintone. I have yet tried any CC Creams before, so this shall be my 1st!
Smoothing Essence-in: 30ml/ $38.90
Magic Skin Beautifier: 50g/ $39.90
7) HARNN Oriental Rose Hand Balm (25g)
This is my favorite among the bunch!
I’m a sucker for all things rose. And so I’m happy to get the rose one in my box! The smell so gooood. This is totally going into my bag! Moisturizing of hands is important especially when you spend most of your day in the AC!
And I love doing my nails so moisturising is especially important to me ♡
So there you have it. 7 samples in 1 box! Some of which are gen-er-ous!! I’m happy with my first box!
Have you subscribed to any beauty boxes? What are they? Let me know!
