June's Bellabox is all about the sun, sand and sea!
Well, Summer to be precise and it is pretty much Summer all year round in Singapore so we know it is not as much of a glamourous thing as it sounds.
Thus! To chase any Summer blues away, Bellabox has 'upgraded' their June box to include 8 exciting products to help you tide through the hot hot heat!
The 8 items included in this month's Bellabox are truly exciting because it covers brands from Biotherm, Lancôme, Kiehls and Ralph Lauren!
In general, I have been liking the direction and products that Bellabox had taken in the past few boxes and now can safely say that I do recommend anyone interested in beauty boxes to give Bellabox a shot!
The subscription is S$15 a month or slightly cheaper if you purchase the 'packages'. In comparison with what you get in June, S$15 is really a small price to pay to try these goodies out!
But for now, lets take a look at the 8 exciting goodies included within the box.
This product is made with real Marigold flowers which are hand-picked and placed in each bottle (yes those bits you see are Marigold Flowers!) by hand. This reminds me of what parents say about rice being painstakenly harvested hence no wasting of a single grain. Thus... no wasting a single drop in this bottle right here either!
This is one of Kiehl's best-selling products and this concentrate contains 99.8% naturally derived botanical elixir to replicate the skin's natural lipids. Basically, all that means it helps your skin repair itself through the night and you wake up to healthier and younger-looking skin!
I haven't tried this but am so intrigued to. It feels like an overnight regeneration process and whats more, this has a calming and soothing lavender oil scent to it. Total bliss to use just before bed!
This one right here needs no introduction - at all. I passed my Génefique bottle to my mom and while she is no-fuss and 'doesn't believe in paying more' when it comes to skincare / makeup, she absolutely loves this. Thus, I will try this baby sample out and see why it's so widely acclaimed.
A fairly new product to Lancôme, this aims to produce bright new collagen, prevents darkening and reduces melanin production. The light-weight formula isn't greasy or sticky on and has a lovely scent to it - not overpowering but nice. With use, the skin would be more translucent, luminuous and brighter from within.
THIS right here is one of my favorite BB Creams thus I was quite glad Bellabox was spreading word about it. Reason being it provides a light and nice coverage without being too sticky or too dewy on, just a perfect and natural skin finish. In fact, it almost feels like you don't have to set it if you are using just a little but I always set anything liquid, just incase. I handed this sample to a girlfriend who had been interested in purchasing for the longest time but hesitated due to the price (S$70).
This body moisturizer contains glycerin, olive oil, vitamin E and Pure Thermal Plankton (as with their Aquasource range) for that ultra hydrated and soft supple skin. Infused with citrus extracts, this has a lingering citrusy scent to it. Not my favorite type of scent but for citrus lovers, this would be nice! Since I hardly come across hydrating moisturizers with a citrusy scent.
Romance is a timeless interpretation of a classic love story, meant to embody the pure and refined feelings of a woman in love.
Scent-wise this puts a foot in my category of evening scents, yet a small part of it makes it light, floral and wearable during the day. I spritzed it on casually and found myself falling in love with how the scent developed. It starts out musky and rather strong but slowly transforms into a lighter and romantically floral scent. I think I will be giving this one a look because it had the (very scent-particular) fiance asking what scent I was wearing.
Shu Uemura's cleansing oils, too, need no introduction. In fact, I had actually done an entry with more information about the White Efficient line over here! Though I love that I now have a sample size of this for travel!
So that wraps up my very very rambly 'unboxing' of June's Bellabox.
Again, I am very pleased with the selection of the products though the benchmark that this box makes might make it hard for Bellabox to match up to in July! Though it only shows that they are constantly evolving to bring us new and interesting products, but yet also familiar and luxurious ones.
