Bellabox July 2012

This is my second Bellabox and count me impressed for the second time. Look how many samples there are! There is one thing I don't like, but maybe that's just me and I'm sure many people would appreciate it. All in all fantastic and I'm looking forward to next month's already :)

Neutrogena deep clean invigorating ultra-foam cleanser
Woah that is a long name! This is a full size cleanser - tick. However I hate Neutrogena cleansers with menthol. Why?! Why?! Why?! It bugs me so much to add menthol. It feels awful and irritates my skin to kingdom come. Does anyone like menthol in cleansers? It seems such a waste for lots of cleansers I would otherwise like.

Neutrogena deep clean gentle scrub (oil free)
This scrub looks nice and I look forward to trying it when I'm off my physical scrub ban.

Classic Carmex
For me carmex is like blistex's more moisturising cousin. I love me some carmex so 2 thumbs up. I do wish I got the strawberry stick I saw some people got because I've been wanting to try it. But still happy with this.

Nutri-Synergy Sensitive Skin Cleanser
This is a fantastic basic, moisturising cleanser for sensitive skin. The ingredients are very similar to the John Plunkett Anti-Aging Creme Cleanser... not surprising because this is made by John Plunkett too. I really like this style of cleansers to use after my foaming cleanser in the evening and by itself in the morning as they're moisturising and don't irritate my sensitive and acne-prone skin.

You, me & everybody Shady Lady Daily Face Milk SPF30+
I'm looking forward to trying this. I hope it doesn't irritate my skin as a fair few sunscreens do. If anyone is as nutso as me for ingredients, I emailed the company and asked for a full list of ingredients as only actives are listed on the box. Here they are: Caprylyl glycol, d-alpha-Tocopherol, Dexpanthenol, Glycerol, Octanohydroxamic acid and water. That's a great, short ingredients list with no ingredients that really concern me. I will update you on how this goes.

elf Eyeliner Brush
I don't love these flat eyeliner brushes, but impressed to see a brush included in the box.

Royal Moroccan The Platinum Series (Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair serum)
Another moroccan oil rip off jumping on the bandwagon. I'll use these and it's nice to receive a full set but not overly excited about the range itself.

Ulta3 Nail Polish in mulberry
What a gorgeous autumn/winter shade. Might put this on tonight!

Givenchy pi neo
This is a men's fragrance. The notes of aniseed, cedarwood, patchouli and vanilla sound right up my ally. Can't wait for my husband to get home from his business trip so I can force this one on him ;)

What did you think of this month's Bellabox?

  1. Great box! I like the look of that Nutri-Synergy cleanser, and I would have loved a brush.
