Unboxing BELLABOX (DEC 2016)

Posted on January 06, 2017

Beauty box has become one of the most popular uprising trend in the beauty community. What is a beauty box? Well, basically it’s a box stuffed with 4 to 5 beauty products samples that will be delivered to you each month by the company you’ve subscribed to. I first came across Bellabox as an advertisement on my Facebook homepage and it seemed like a good idea at the moment to try it out. They also do boxes for men (Bellobox) and babies (Bellababy). If you like what you've sampled, you can also get the products from their online store. This is the very first time I've signed up for a beauty box subscription and I am very excited about it!

This month’s box theme is SUMMER GLOW. As you may guess, all the products in it are designed specially for one to stay beautiful under the summer heat.

Overall thoughts:
To be honest, I was pretty nervous not knowing what I might receive in the box. I really want the products to be of good value for the money spent. To my surprise, the beauty products' brands I've received in this month's box are exactly what I was thinking to try awhile ago. LUCKY ME! Such as the Pure Paw Paw Ointment, I've always seen them around in some drugstores wondering what is it. To accommodate my sensitive skin, I've used Cetaphil's body wash. Therefore, I'm thrilled to try out their face wash this time. I've heard numerous amazing reviews of Bioderma in the market and this gives me the opportunity to test them out myself.

Beauty box subscription is probably one of the best methods to try out and discover all the new and exciting beauty brands in the market. It gives you the chance to have a go on the products to see if they best suit your liking. Besides, it does give you that element of surprise each month as you open up the box.

However, getting a beauty box does mean that you’ll have to commit to a certain amount of monthly subscription fees (although you can unsubscribe anytime). In the long run, it may work out to be a little bit expensive for some people.

So, what are some of your thoughts on beauty subscription boxes? Are you subscribed to one?
