Firstly, I apologise for being AWOL: I blame it all on Netflix. Damn those Upper East Siders! I’m up to the last episode of Gossip Girl and I’m dreading the end. I really hate endings and I don’t know what I’m going to do when it’s all over…
It was my birthday last Saturday and I received some amazing gifts, including one that I obviously need to mention: the Ambient Lighting Palette by Hourglass by my lovely friend Daniella (kisses to you). OMG. I was so excited to receive it. She gave it to me just before our dinner plans and I was hanging out all night to use it! I plan to write a review shortly so stay tuned for that! I also received a Longchamp bag, vouchers, a beautiful Tilkah bracelet and a book by Tanya Burr.
This month’s Bellabox was packed full of treats, so let’s just dive right in!
The theme was ‘Beauty Quick Fix’, which seemed to be centred around the star product: the Porefessional pro balm by Benefit! This is my first ever Benefit product and I was so excited to try it out.
Here’s what was included:
Monoderma Skin Vitamins – Soothing and Hydrating. These vitamins help with melasma, sun exposure and dull tired skin. They also help fight against the signs of ageing, which is always a winner. The vitamins are to be applied directly to the skin. I used one earlier this week before bedtime and my skin looked amazing.
Neon & Co Treatment Oil. This treatment oil helps to create shine and eliminate frizz. I love hair oils and can’t wait to try this out.
Benefit Porefessional Pro Balm. I’m sure this primer needs no introduction, so I’ll just give a brief rundown. The infamous Porefessional primer minimises the appearance of fine lines and smooths the skin and creates the perfect canvas for makeup. I used this primer on Saturday night and my skin stayed matte all night. I normally prefer a dewy look, so I plan to use this primer only on the oily areas of my skin.
Bioderma Sensibio H20. This is one of the top 10 beauty products of all time. This is a cleansing Micellar water and removes makeup, dirt and oil. I have built up quite the collection of these types of cleansers thanks to Bellabox.
Monomola Eyebrow Tattoo. This pen is designed to precisely fill in the brows using a feather technique. It’s also long lasting. My eyebrows are pretty thick already, however I do have a section that requires some filling so I’ll definitely try this out.
Bonus: Harvest Box Health Bombs. These portion controlled snacks are made up of dried fruits and nuts and are a healthy way to get you through the day. I received these in cranberry, blueberry and cacao. I was so eager to try these out and I’m glad I did as they are delicious. I really like healthy snacks and these are perfect for on the go and travelling.
The highlights this month for me are definitely the Benefit Porefessional Pro Balm and the Harvest Box Health Bombs. I’ve always loved the branding and packaging of Benefit: very girly and very much my style. I think I’ll be purchasing some products shortly…
