There was one item (L'oreal Shine Caresse) I was really hoping to receive this month, which I did not unsurprisingly... Regardless, here are the products I received for October!
Nivea Visage: Light Moisturising Day Cream SPF15
7ml sample - 50ml RRP $12.99
I have accumulated so many moisturisers from beauty boxes therefore I don't need another one. Plus this could be easily purchased at Priceline.
La Roche-Posay: UVIDEA XL Melt-in BB Cream
3ml sample - 30ml RRP $28.95
Can't wait to try this bb cream from La Roche-Posay! I believe this is new in the Australian market so yay :) As Summer is approaching very soon, this might be an ideal bb cream as it is SPF 50 PA+++. Oh and it has also been tested on Asian sensitive skin therefore suitable for me! Double yay :D
Sinful Colors: Nail Enamel - 313 Pink Forever
Full size - RRP $4.95
I'm not particularly a pink lover but this is a gorgeous shade of pink with some purple undertones. I still haven't tried the other polish I received in my previous Bellabox so I don't know what the quality is like.
Beyonce: Heat EDT
2ml sample - 100ml RRP $39
If I didn't read what it was, I would have thought this was a lolly. I've always been curious how this fragrance smelt like and now I know, and also quite like. Please don't ask me what it smells like since I am terrible at describing scents...
Lonvitalite: 24K Gold Yulan Oil Face Mask
One mask - Box of 5 RRP $29
This mask contains pure whitening essence milk with ultrafine micro gold foils. It aims to promote micro circulation renewal and skin regeneration, in addition to moisturising and evening skin tone. I am very interested in trying this but I hope my face doesn't end up all glitter and sparkly...
Alfaparf: Semi Di Lino Diamond Shampoo & Diamond Mask
50ml samples - 250ml RRP $25 (Shampoo); 200ml RRP $29 (Mask)
I don't have normal hair... my hair is the complete opposite of normal: oily yet dry, colour treated, brittle and damaged. I'm also sick of receiving shampoo / conditioner samples in beauty boxes though I am glad this time they are not sachets. After reading other people's comments on the Bellabox Facebook page, it seems that several people did not receive the right type of product according to their beauty profile. Same situation goes for me.
Nuxe: Creme Prodigieuse - Nuit & Enrichie
2ml samples - 50ml RRP $49.95 & 40g RRP $44.95
These two sachet samples were bonus items, one is a morning moisturiser and the other is night. I don't think another moisturiser sample is necessary... Maybe an item more related to the theme would have been more appropriate as a bonus item.
To be honest, I felt there was a lack of connection to the theme this month and the products were a little underwhelming. There was no wow factor as a celebratory box and personally preferred last month's box more. There was only one full sized product and the rest were mini samples aside from the shampoo and hair mask.
EDIT: I just calculated the value of this box and it came to $31.29.... ummm, say what?! Some of these samples you could easily obtain for free. Not worth it.
What did you receive in your Bellabox this month? What are your thoughts?
Hope you ladies are having a wonderful week so far! ^__^
