Bring on the balloons, party poppers and a huge Happy Birthday banner because Bellabox had just turned 1 in the month of October! While I'm a little late to the party, only mentioning this nearing the end of the month... better late than never? :)
Celebrating this occasion, the October Bellabox seems to have evolved from the soft baby pink to a mature rouge tone. I actually love the shade of this October box.
Being a year old isn't what you would define as grown up in people-terms but in company-terms, it is definitely a maturing milestone!
With October's subscription box, Bellabox invites us all to join them in this party with products from NUXE, Bioderma and Guerlain!
Let's have a look!
I shall do my usual of giving a quick description of the product but we all know how 'quick' my descriptions always end up being!
NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil
This multi-usage oil can be used on the body, face (which I daren't try, just cause), hair and even as a pampering session by adding a couple of drops into a hot bath. The major plus point of this oil is how amazing it smells but beware, there is a very evident jasmine (I think?) floral note to it so if you aren't a Jasmine person, maybe the scent may not appeal as much. I personally cannot explain how much I love the scent of this.
NUXE Body 24hr Moisturizing Lotion
Enriched with sweet almond and sunflower oils, this body moisturizer is made from a natural formula that is absorbed into the skin at a very quick pace, allowing for you to get dressed almost immediately. The sample tube is a little small for me to slather it all over myself and test how it hydrating it really is but I find it works great as a hand cream. It rids the dry and rough skin sensation in my palms without a greasy feeling after as well. I may look into the full size just to try it out on my body and see how it holds up.
NUXE Face and Body Ultra-Rich Cleansing Gel
This soap-free cleansing gel carries a rather musky scent to it and sits great in an unwinding regime. I don't know about ultra-rich but while it is as light-weight as a gel, it doesn't leave the skin feeling stripped or dry after wash. In fact it seems to infuse a little nourishment in the short duration that it is on my skin. I quite like this but the scent may prove a little heavy when I'm not in the mood for it.
Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Solution
This super cutesy bottle needs no introduction... on here at least! I have already spoken about it here and compared it against the Oily variant here. Though incase you have missed those entries, I love this. Love, major love! A bottle this small may hardly be of substantial use (probably a week at best?) though I can't deny that it is adorable.
Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire EDT
A relatively new fragrance in town, the Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire (which stands for Little Black Dress) had received some attention during its launch. I was intrigued by it, got a quick whiff of it in the departmental stores and subsequently fell in love. I cannot justify another perfume purchase now but this little sample is lovely to have! La Petite Robe Noire is an inclusion of roses, orange blossoms, musk, cherry and apple. I shan't going into a perfume description here but go get a spritz of it if light feminine scents that are mildly floral, mildly 'soapy' are your thing!
All that aside, there was also a special Bellabox inclusion with their Birthday box! Which leaves me to think... is it Bellabox's birthday or mine? ha.
Check out the very statement hot-pink double-sided compact mirror that was included; it is 'normal' on one side and magnified on the other.
In all, festive birthday celebratory mood aside, I am liking this Bellabox because it brings the whole initial beauty subscription box joy back to me. The whole 'randomly being introduced to something I have never ventured into / tried and liking it in the end' sort of thing.
Case in point, NUXE.
It is a brand I have heard brief mentions about them yet I have no clue what products they actually have. Thus after using what was included within this Bellabox, it's safe to say that I will be checking out more items from NUXE and probably picking up the full-size of the Multi-Usage oil just because I like it that much!
Before I end this post, a biggggg Happy Birthday once more to Bellabox!
Visit Bellabox if you are interested in a month subscription which would cost S$19.90.
Thanks for reading and do you have anything from NUXE to recommend?
