BELLA BOX | Launches in NZ - Unboxing + Thoughts -  CassandraMyee


Everyone drop what you are doing and check this out - Australian based beauty subscription service BellaBox* is launching here in New Zealand! After a bit of drought of beauty based subscription services here in NZ, we are finally getting a new one that gets rave reviews over in Australia.

BellaBox is Australia's most popular subscription box service with over 23,000 subscribers who get this delivered each month. They seem to always have a lot of well known and easily accessible brands in their boxes with a good mix of different sized products. The box that I was sent for November included 6 products; 2 full sized, 3 deluxe minis, and 1 sachet sample. Each of the brands I have heard of or tried in the past, so it's reassuring to me that if I end up loving a product I know I will be able to get my hands on it in NZ.

BellaBox can't be missed with its gorgeous baby blue boxes which can be upcycled and used as storage boxes or even drawers dividers for organising your makeup and beauty products.

So let's dive into the contents of the inaugural NZ BellaBox. 

e.l.f Cosmetics Sunkissed Glow Bronzer | NZD $7 via. Kmart
e.l.f. is one of my favourite affordable brands and I really enjoy a lot of their products as well as their Studio brushes which I use all the time. This Bronzer looks really nice and isn't overly shimmery/glittery but has a golden glow to it. It's also infused with Vitamin E for a bit more nourishment and to allow it to apply easier to the skin.

John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Finishing Crème | NZD $22.99 for 90ml via. Farmers
This is a generous 30ml sample of a hair product designed for those with dry, frizzy and/or unruly hair. It is designed to be used on dry hair to especially target dry ends or to be lightly swept through to tame flyaways and control any frizz. I tend to get a bit of frizz from baby hairs and my ends get quite dry so I can myself using this a lot. This size is also ideal for the handbag and for travelling with.

Blaq Face Mask | NZD $29.99 for 60g via. blaq.co
This is the face mask that I am sure you would have seen go viral on Facebook and Instagram. It's one of those intense charcoal peel off masks designed to draw out dirt and impurities in the skin and leave you looking like you basically have new skin. It is really cool to see this product included as I am sure a lot of people would love to try it and see what all the hype is about!

KMS AddVolume Liquid Dust | NZD $34 for 50ml via. selected salons
This sounds like a very intriguing product but comes in what seems to be a 1-2 use vial (3ml) (although perhaps a little might go a long way...) It is to be used in towel dried hair prior to blow drying focusing on the roots to help lift and add volume. I am always wanting more volume out of my hair so I will let you know how this goes.

Bonus Product - Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Nourishing Facial Water

Kevin Murphy Colour Bug | NZD $25 via. hairproductsonline.co.nz
I have been so intrigued by the Colour Bugs since they came out a few years back and temporary hair chalking became a huge thing. There are a few options of what you could get in the way of colours; either Neon, Orange, Pink, Purple, White, Yellow or the Shimmer which I received. This particular one is designed for those with dark hair (aka. me!) to give a golden highlight through the hair. I am looking forward to playing with this one, especially over summer.

Overall I am really impressed with this first BellaBox that is launching in NZ. This service is $24.95 a month and you can sign up for it here. The total value of the products included in this bag (at their sample or full sizes) is around NZD $50 - so basically double of what you pay. The good thing about BellaBox is the brands are available in NZ/Australia and are much easier to find. 

What do you think of BellaBox? Do you think this is a service you would like to sign up for each month?
