So sorry for posting this just now. I know I was supposed to post it last night, but somehow, I just fell asleep after going home from work. Boo!
This is the second beauty box I received here in Singapore–I just haven’t posted the other two yet.
Let me introduce BellaBox to you first. 🙂 BellaBox is one of the beauty box subscription services here in Singapore. Their team handpicks the latest, deluxe beauty products based on your personal profile and delivers them to your doorstep every month for only $19.95 (monthly subscription fee). Each BellaBox has about 5 carefully selected products (trial size) coming from the hottest makeup, hair, and skincare products to hit the market to the latest innovations and so much more!
Beauty boxes are a great way to try new beauty products and update your beauty regimen with the latest products on the market. For me, it’s a great way to discover brands and products that I never even knew existed. And since I love surprises, opening beauty boxes are a thrilling experience for me. 🙂
Moving on to this month’s BellaBox called “Flirty Feb”, I’d say this box really knows how to make a girl feel pretty awesome! Excited to see what’s in the box? See my unboxing photos below:
This is how the BellaBox looks like upon delivery from Ta-Q-Bin.
You’ll see the real beauty box inside. 🙂
Just like any beauty box, it comes with a card that contains all the products inside, their descriptions, and corresponding prices. Sometimes, there will be discount coupons with them.
After removing the card on top, you’ll see this purple colored wrapping paper with a nice XO sticker. ^_^ The items are inside this lovely package!
Now let’s go through the items one by one:
Rachel K Lotus Stem Cell Hydrogel Mask (30 mL essence per mask)
Description: Replenish your skin moisture with this hydrogel mask. Said to offer 11-18% more moisture than sheet masks, it is formulated with stem cells extracted from the lotus flower for optimal skin renewal. The result is a cleansed, tightened and refined complexion with a beautiful, healthy glow!
Price: 30 ml = $8.90
First Impression: I’ve never received a face mask before as part of a beauty box so I’m quite excited to try this. I’m definitely using this soon!
Darlie Expert Fresh Toothpaste (40g)
Description: Eliminate and protect against the source of bad breath with this unique, advance formulation of active Zinc Citrate. This toothpaste boasts a strong attack-defence system at eliminates up to 42% of bacteria and ensure fresh breath for as long as 12 hours!
Price: 40g = $3 | 120 g = $5.90
First Impression: I’ve already started using this since I received the box and so far, I like it. I like the taste and the freshness it brings.
L’Oreal Paris Everstrong Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner (59 mL)
Description: Thinning hair getting to you? It could be an unhealthy scalp that is causing hair loss. Clinically tested for stronger and thicker hair in 30 days, kick-start prevention using L’Oreal Paris Everstrong Hair & Scalp System! Rinse of excess oils and free radicals swiftly with its thickening shampoo, and follow with conditioner for optimal hair hydration and soothing nourishment.
Price: 59 mL = $3.90 | 250 mL = $14.90
First Impression: I’ve started using this already since yesterday and I’ve already noticed lesser hair fall! Hair fall has always been my problem ever since I got sick 10 years ago. 🙁 Clumps of hair would usually fall off after washing my hair and after combing. With this, I’ve noticed a substantial decrease in hair fall! Hurray! I also like the way the shampoo smells of green tea. But I don’t like the scent of the conditioner which is mint. It makes me feel like I’m using a toothpaste as a conditioner (given that it’s also white and smells of mint). Anyway, I’ll continue to use this until I’ve finished up the tubes. If it really works great for me, this might be my mainstay shampoo and conditioner.
Apivita Cleansing Gel for Oily/Combination Skin (75 mL)
Description: Restore magnificent skin with its 96% natural ingredients your skin will oh-so-love! Day to day, the skin is cleansed, soothed, toned, refreshed, and oil-controlled with its blend of natural cleansing agents: Propolis, Citrus, Juniper, Lemon and Tea Tree essential oils.
Price: 200 mL = $36
First Impression: I already used this twice. Once without water, which didn’t really work well. Haha! And the other one on wet face and rinsed off after with water as well. It cleanses my skin and the smell is quite okay. 🙂 It doesn’t really fully remove the makeup so I have to use a makeup remover first before using this cleansing gel.
Collection Hot Looks Nail Polish in Aztec Gold (8 mL)
Description: Vibrant bright colours, bedazzling high shine, quick dry formula — it is all about delivering the fastest and latest on-trend shades to help you stay on top of the fashion game! Touch and go in just 60 seconds with its touch-dry formula and wide brush for speedy and easy application.
Price: 8 mL = $3.90
First Impression: I used it on my pinky finger first… and I can say it delivers its promises quite well. It dried up really fast and the color is magnificent. It’s quite long-lasting too. 🙂
Apothederm Firming Serum (0.15 oz)
Description: This firming serum combines the power of botanicals with two of Apothederm’s patented SmartPeptides® to effectively firm skin and increase the skin’s anti-aging results. Best of all? Glycerin, Trehalose, Thermus Ferment and Palmaria Palmata is added for moisturizing, toning, and brightening effect.
Price: 1 oz = $95.50
First Impression: This is expensive like crazy! I haven’t tried yet because I’m saving up this wee bit of a sample for a day when I really feel so haggard, stressed, and weighed down. Haha! I’m hoping this would give me an instant face lift. Haha!
Bonus: Rachel K Purifying Cleanser Gel (1.5 g)
Description: Treat dull, lifeless skin to the goodness of this purifying cleanser gel for a healthier and more youthful looking complexion! It is blended with Witch Hazel and Aloe Vera for a soothing and refreshing skin treatment.
Price: 80 mL = $25
First Impression: Haven’t tried yet… but the Stem Cell technology makes me really curious to try soon!
Bonus: L’Oreal Paris Extraordinary Oil (5 mL)
Description: A miracle oil that can be used as a protectant, nourishing treatment and shine touchup without ever weighing hair down sounds too good to be true, extraordinary. Believe it, because that’s what L’Oreal’s Extraordinary Oil does for all hair types for women! Ultra lightweight, instant shine as well as deep nourishing protection, making hair gorgeous and more manageable is just a quick application away. Smooth through dry or damp hair anytime, on any hair type!
Price: 100 mL = $23.90
First Impression: I’m not so much a fan of hair products… but maybe I’ll try this one. My current hair problem right now is dry frizzy hair. I hope with this, my hair would be more manageable and beautiful looking.
So that’s all that’s inside the box. Quite a lot right? And if you’d look at the prices, you got more than what you actually paid for. That’s what so great with the boxes. They’re fully packed with products that you can actually use and yet give you so much value for money. 🙂 Can’t wait to receive my next BellaBox!
