january bella box

If you've been reading my blog a little while (thank you, 50 followers!), you'll know that as a little Christmas present to myself I bought a subscription to Bella Box. Last month I did a review of what I received in my box so I thought I might do one for January as well! Again, the Bella Box came in it's cute little brown box, which I adore, and I couldn't wait to open it up...

This month I received...
Garnier Moisture Match Goodbye Dry Moisturiser (sample size) RRP $9.99
Wen by Chaz Dean Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner (sample size) RRP $34.99
Laqa & Co Lip Lube Bees Knees (full size) RRP $24.95
WotNot Facial Wipes for Oily/Sensitive Skin (sample size) RRP $8.40
SkinnyMint Ultimate Teatox (sample size) RRP $54.90
Exclusive Bella Box Makeup Pouch (full size) RRP $7.95
All in Australian dollars.

This is such a great moisturiser! It's exactly what I need in summer - something for my skin to drink up but with a matte finish. I have combination skin, that gets especially dry during winter and shiny in the summer, so once I purchase this it'll definitely be my go-to moisturiser. This makes me so happy, as I've been looking for a face moisturiser for ages! The best part is that Garnier have a range of this product for different skin types so in the winter I might just have to reach for their dry skin one.Very impressed! :)

I'm yet to try this product but one thing is for sure - my hair needs it. Honestly, I treat it terribly (sorry hair!) so my ends are split, my mid-lengths are dry and frazzled, and it never feels properly clean, so this'll definitely come in handy. My sister used her's pretty much right away and her hair was silky soft.

This is an interesting product! It's called a 'lip lube' which I guess I'd describe as a matte finish tinted lipbalm? It's tricky to describe! The colour is sheer, which is quite the relief as this is not a colour I'd usually wear, but when applied it looks more peach than orange. It's enriched with peppermint and shea butter, and you can really feel the peppermint working - my lips tingle after application, but it feels quite conditioning! However, it doesn't feel too moisturising, and if you have dry lips you might want to use a scrub beforehand.

I was so excited to try this. These are natural wipes and also organic, which makes my conscience a little lighter. The list of ingredients make me happy (rosehip oil is amazing), and it removes my make up nicely. I'm not sure what I can say for results as I've only used it once, but I do have to say it's pretty much like any other make up wipe. Get's rid of any dirt, build up, and make up. The organic part of this does make me feel like purchasing these over another brand, though.

I'm definitely not a tea person. Bring me a coffee or hot chocolate any day, but tea is only for when I'm sick. I've also heard that detox teas always taste awful, so I'm a bit cautious about these, but they've got a whole list of health benefits, so I might as well give them a go. Follow me on twitter and I might give you an update on how they are! Click on the twitter icon in the sidebar to go to my page.

An item exclusive to Bella Box is their make up pouch. It's super cute, with the same pattern as the box, and made of a translucent jelly material. It kind of reminds me of pencil cases used in primary school, haha! To be honest, it's a bit small for what I like to pack for daily make up, but it's a cute storage space anyway.

Do you sign up for any beauty boxes? How were yours this month? I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments. I'm usually quick to reply!

    1. There are actually quite a few! BellaBox was the one that appealed to me most, though. Thanks for stopping by! :)
