Subscription boxes #1: Bella Box

<a href="">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>

Can we just talk about subscription boxes for a minute? No, not the Youtube kind, the arrive-on-your-doorstep kind.

Now I will admit, I'm very late to the party on this one.  I've been umming an ahhing for far to long, trying to decide if these subscription boxes are all they're cracked up to be.  However, after seeing this video by Maddie, I decided I had to have them all!

So today my lovely BellaBox arrived at my door.  BellaBox is an Australian subscription box, that contains 5-6 beauty/cosmetic/hair products.  Now I got my box for just $10, with a special promo for May, but they're normally $15 per month.

This month's BellaBox was flight themed, with Jetstar images on the sleeve, and a boarding pass inside the box. All of the products had some link to travel as well.

And here's what was in the box:

  1. Timeless truth face mask.
  2. Wen by Chaz Dean sweet almond mint cleansing conditioner. (Which I am very excited about using! I hope this can replenish my dry hair).
  3.  Appelles rosemary body bar.
  4. Sally Hansen sugar coat textured nail colour - full size. (I got Lick-O-Rich, which is a black polish with grainy flecks in it for the texture).
  5. Chapstick limited edition tin.
  6. Chapstick moisturiser green apple - full size. (You can't really go wrong with one of these).
Overall, I think this was a good mix of products, and I do like how they all went with the theme. However, I was hoping to receive more cosmetic products. I did get a couple of full size products though, so it's swings and roundabouts I guess.

Have you had any subscriptions boxes before? What did you think? Let me know!

  2. I've such a love/hate relationship with subscription boxes. I'm literally only after doing a post on my last Glossybox and why I cancelled my subscription. I feel like it's a total gamble as to whether you're actually going to enjoy the products that you get each month, and with it costing €16 after shipping, I think I'd rather put the money towards something I know I'm going to enjoy.

    It's such a pity though, because they're great for introducing you to new brands/products!

    1. I completely agree! I'm not sure if it's worth getting any more or not... For $10 I can just about justify it, but any more, and it gets a bit dicey. We'll see how well my will power goes in whether I take another gamble or not! :)

  3. I've never heard of this beauty box before, it does look like you got some nice little products in it though!
