BELLABOX NZ | June '18 - Unboxing + Thoughts - CassandraMyee

The June edition from bellabox NZ* was unfortunately held up with delays due to their Nails Inc shipment. Despite all the issues, they were really great in letting the customers know and making sure they were kept up to date with what happened. In the end, one of the shipments arrived so instead of the arranged substitute, the promised Nails INC polish was in the box! The June box was appropriately themed 'Baby It's Cold Outside' and inside is 6 products; 2 full sized, 3 deluxe sample sizes and one sachet bonus product from Zuii Organic.

Nails INC London Polish in Collingham Place* | AUD $23 / NZD $25 (10ml)
I have used a couple of Nails INC polishes in the past but they haven't really grabbed my attention, plus they're not the easiest to find in NZ stores. I was sent the shade Collingham Place and I absolutely love the colour, it's a light nude with a bit of a pink tone to it. It had great coverage when I swatched it on my nail wheel and I can't wait to get it on my nails.

Mellow Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lip Paint in Auckland* | NZD $20 (3.2g)
I actually already own this shade in the full sized tube and have a couple of the other shades. As far as liquid lipsticks go that dry down matte this formula is one of my favourites, plus the shade Auckland is perfect and a beautiful one for the cooler months. Mellow is an NZ brand and it's so great to see them included in this months box.

Jurlique Activating Water Essence* | NZD $80 (150ml)
I like a good deluxe size product, they're a good way to try out a product especially skincare without having to commit to the full sized. I have not tried many products at all from Jurlique so I am looking forward to giving this a whirl. This says it should be used after a toner and before a serum and you just need a few drops to then press into the skin. It aims to hydrate, soften and revitalise the skin and aid in helping your serum and moisturiser soak in a lot more effectively. The key ingredients are Marshmallow Root Extract, for hydrating, softening, protecting and rebalancing the skin, Calendula Flower Extract, a powerful antioxidant, and Peach Leaf Extract, known to help smooth the skin and reduce wrinkles and improve radiance.

Burt's Bees Complete Nourishment Facial Oil* | NZD $50 (15ml)
As well as being known for their lip balms, Burt's Bees also have an extensive line of skincare product and also baby care products too. I really like a facial oil and enjoying trying out new ones. This one has a concentrated blend of Rosehip, Jojoba and Evening Primrose which are all oils my skin reacts well too. It says it is proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as smooth and hydrate.

La'Bang Hair Hydrate Me Hydrating Hair + Scalp Mask Lime Scented* | AUD $18 / NZD $20 (100ml)
I had never heard of La'Bang before and am so intrigued to try it out. They're an all vegan and natural brand based in the Mornington Peninsula in Australia. This hair mask is designed to have about 2-3 uses in it and can be secured with the screw lid. It is formulated with Moroccan Argan Oil, Coconut Oil, Macadamia Oil and Jojoba Oil. You apply it to dry hair and leave on for a minimum of 20 minutes before washing off with shampoo and conditioner as usual.

Overall I like the theme of the products and they are definitely all geared towards the colder month with products to hydrate and treat the skin. The overall value of the box is approx. NZD $65 and they're all products I know I will end up using.

If you want to try bellabox for yourself, you can sign up via their website in both New Zealand and Australia. The boxes are sent monthly and are $24.95 each plus shipping. 

Have you tried any of these products?
