I was quite upset about it as Bellabox has play a pretty good part when I started my blogging journey. They have been so wonderful and I even got to meet many new friends at the Bellabox 2.0 event last year. Nevertheless I’m truly grateful for the opportunity I got to work with bellabox over the period.
This month Bellabox is about being Flawless by channelling our inner Beyoncé. As we all know being flawless is not easy because it will come down to the basic of one health and what we use. So let’s head right into the box on how to achieve flawless.
 The Face Shop Cushion Screen Cell SPF50+ PA+++ 
First up we have cushion base which are usually my go to makeup base because they are light in texture compare to most liquid foundation and on days you just want to have a quick fix me up to balance out the skin tone as well as a bit of coverage then I would say base like this comes in very handy.
This is the world’s first cushion screen cell foundation where it is pack with 5 benefits in 1 compact, a lightweight  foundation that conceals, brightens, protects, minimises wrinkles and hydrates.

The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask and Wonderblur

Sponsored Post

Hey lovely,

I am back, hope you are still around to read this post as I am sharing two new products from The Body Shop!

The Body Shop Drops Of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask as well as The Body Shop Wonder Blur!


The Body Shop Drops Of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask
With ingredient like Edelweiss plant stem cells that is carefully and sustainably extracted harnessing their powerful resilience, to deliver potent skin cell renewing properties.
I have been using this mask for a couple of weeks as the first step of my night skin care regime. I have oily skin, but at times I can have some dry patch especially on my nose area so I just need a little moisturiser and it tend to be done at night. 
I love that I can use this night mask daily to keep my face moisturise. The only thing I didn’t like is that it leave a little sticky finish but can easily be solve after applying a night cream on top of it. After applying this mask, I apply an anti ageing night cream on top of it which solve the problem of the slightly sticky finish.

The fun thing about this mask is that since the texture is gel and cream like, it will return to original form after scooping as show in the picture below.
The texture is pretty thick too so you don’t have to take a lot of content for every use.
Now I can wake up to well moisturise face daily!
The Body Shop Wonder Blur
This is a lightweight blur instantly smoothes skin texture that visibly reduce fine lines and pores for an all-day flawless look. I personally still found this product quite alright as it did reduce the look of pore but not to the extend that your skin will look like a porcelain face. Definitely lightweight and smooth in texture.
The texture of the products.

Last  but not least, good news, as Chinese New Year is approaching, The Body Shop is giving out their pretty red packets which can be redeemed with any products purchased.
If you spend S$68 nett, you can get your hands on the red carrier bag along with a Honey Body Butter (50ML), Japanese Shower Gel (60ML) and a Bath Lily so shop away!


Happy Chinese New Year~
Hugs,
