January 2015 Bellabox: Review

It’s almost close to the end of the first month in 2015! We are starting this new year with a clean slate – a fresh set of skincare, treats for that silky smooth hair and a new beauty regime! This month, Bellabox is helping you to hit all that right beauty spots with its January box!
Remember I used to grumble whenever I receive more skincare products than makeup stuff in my Bellabox? Well, having so much makeup now in my stash, I really do appreciate that I have skin/hair/body care products coming in for me to test out instead of more makeup in my Bellabox! Let’s dive right into the contents of The Beauty Spot Bellabox!

There you have it, an overflowing box this month. The delivery guy even commented that the box is going to explode with so many things inside when he passed the box to me!

Hitting the hair “spot” we have:

Mane ‘N Tail Deep Moisturising Shampoo & Conditioner – S$14.90 for 355ml each
The first thing that caught my attention was this haircare duo. I saw these in Watsons or Guardian (can’t remember which) and I thought, “They look like pet shampoos!” Honestly, with the packaging (especially since there’re horses printed) and brand name, they do look like what I’d use on my poodle. Anyway, these are formulated for dry and damaged hair, just what I need to tame my mane 😉 Going into my list of to-brings for the next vacay, also because they smell so baby powder-ish and floral!

Medavita Ozogel Complex PH3.6 + B-Carotene Complex PH3.5 – S$39.90 for 50ml
Phew, the names were so hard to type! Ozogel Complex is a no-rinse hair treatment formulated for healthier and youthful-looking hair while B-Carotene Complex is a leave-in hair restoring serum packed in a single dose of phial to deliver strong and hydrated hair. These resemble those of facial ampoules and I am excited to try them out because of the high concentrations of active ingredients in such products! I might get a couple more if they work out for my frizzy crazy hair.

(P.S. They do look like juices, so yummy~)

Now for targeting the face “spot”!

Belif Skincare – The True Cream – Moisturising Bomb, Aqua bomb; The True Anti-aging Essence; Hungarian Water Essence, ranging from S$54-57
Conceived with herbal recipes and the philosophy of respected botanist and herbalist, Duncan Napier, Belif offers products formulated with superior ingredients. I remembered when I first encountered Belif was during the Belif Peat Miracle Revital range facial c/o My Cozy Room Boutique Spa, and I fell in love with the refreshing herbal scent of the products because it helps to calm your nerves and make you relax. I will definitely be bringing these for my next trip/staycation.

After skincare, it’s time for some makeup!

Elizabeth Mott It’s So Big Volumizing Mascara – S$26.90 for 10ml
This mascara has a really bold claim which I’m usually sceptical of: to give your lashes major length and volume. The wand is shaped in an hourglass shape to make sure that all of your lashes get that coat of length and volume they need! Very handy for travelling as well though I wish it says “waterproof” somewhere…

Makeup removing is a huge thing for me, especially for my clogged skin and the product that got me jumping while unboxing is none other than…

Biore Micellar Cleansing Water – S$18.90 for 300ml
WHOOP WHOOP! The ultimate cleansing water for a fuss-free and quick makeup meltdown! I am personally using the Biore Cleansing Wipes and I heard so many good things about this cleansing water that I almost went to purchase it! Luckily this came in for me to test out first before I commit to an entire bottle. THUMBS UP for this baby!

For that firmer body…

Collistar Anticellulite Thermal Cream – S$69.90 for 400ml
With a formula that blends 6 different types of sea algae with thermal water along with a high concentration of firming principles and draining phyto-extracts (what a mouthful), this treatment cream works to combat cellulite and firm up tissues to visibly tighten skin. I wouldn’t think that a one-time trial will allow you to see results. I thought that they could’ve included more sachets since it’s a bodycare product.

Last but not least, a Bellabox Cosmetic Pencil Pouch – S$5.90!
This cute pouch is meant to store and bring around your cosmetic pencil essentials – eyeliners, mascaras, eyeshadow pencils etc! For me, I think I’m going to use this to store my travel sized makeup brushes whenever I travel! Such a convenient pouch and it came in timely!

So, do you like this month’s Bellabox? I definitely do! 😉 If you would like to check out The Beauty Spot Bellabox, head over to http://bellabox.sg/ and get yours now!

Create yourself and be gorgeous! ♡
XOXO, Roanna.
