Review: Bellabox July 2012

With the number of boxes available shrinking rapidly, it's quite the occasion when one shows up, so it was with eager anticipation I tore the wrapping off this one.

It seems Bellabox has followed the trend and abandoned the box!! We are presented with a small vanity bag that not all the samples will fit into.. For me the boxes these things used to arrive in are a lot more useful to me than my rapidly expanding small vanity bag collection.

That disappointment aside, we're presented with a large number of samples this month. Here's what we got:

- You, Me & Everybody Shady Lady Face Milk. Day moisturiser with sunscreen. Full size sample.
- Carmex moisture Plus Ultra Hydratig Lip Balm - full size sample. I'm just not a lip balm girl, no doubt this will be more exciting to others than it is to me.
- Neutrogena Ageless Intensives Deep Wrinkle Eye Cream - full size sample. Good brand, good product, full size - excellent.
- Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Night Renewal Cream. I like this brand - its hard to criticise a skincare range that smells like chocolate!, haven't tried this night cream though. A small sample tube.
- Ulta3 Nail Polish in Mulberry. These sell for $2 in the chemist bargain bin. Enough said.
- Almay get up and grow mascara. full size makeup sample always welcome!
- Primaria Nourishing Silk Mask & Bath of Life Shampoo. No matter how awesome these are it's unlikely I'd be convinced to buy based on these small sachet samples.
-Givenchy Pi Neo - sachet of men's fragrance "for your mr bb?!?" (thanks for the hetronomative jab there bb). Once again a sachet is not the ideal way to showcase anything.

So, there's certainly quantity, if not all of it is quality, certainly enough of it is to make this box well worth the purchase price. I will enjoy getting stuck into some of this over the next couple of weeks.
