Bellabox 'Beauty Snap' July Box!




Hi guys! Recently I was sent a Bellabox, which is very exciting! Despite my interest in YouTube 'unboxing' videos and reading blog posts about beauty boxes, I've never subscribed to any of these services myself. I think the last time I received a Bellabox was many years ago, so I was keen to get this baby open and see what it contained!





This is the July 2019 Box, called 'Beauty Snap'. Inside the blue spotty Bellabox, there's a product card detailing the contents, plus an ingredients card which is helpful for those with allergies, a preference for natural products or just those of us who are curious! You can also visit the Bellabox website for more information on the products included in your box. Let's have a look inside!

Contents
~ Luna By Luna Eyeshadow in Miracle (1.5g)
~ Coco & Eve Like A Virgin Coconut & Fig Hair Masque (38ml)
~ Liar Wrinkle Cheater Eye Roller (12ml)
~ Model Co Highlighting Shimmer Whip in Champagne (7ml)
~ Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Mud Mask (10ml)
~ Plunketts Nutri-Synergy Intensive Working Hands (4g)





I'm loving the range of products in this box. There's makeup and skincare and even a haircare product, so there's enough variety to please most beauty lovers. Apart from the single use face mask and the sachet of hand moisturiser (a bonus product in this box), the remaining products are a generous size, and will take quite some time to use up. The Luna By Luna eyeshadow and Liar Wrinkle Cheater eye serum are in fact full sized products!

I'm really impressed with the Luna By Luna eyeshadow, especially since I've never heard of the brand! It's soft, smooth and easy to work with, blending out well. It's very pigmented too and can be built up for a more intense look. I'm loving it all over the lid with winged liner for when I don't have time to apply five different shades! {cruelty-free and gluten-free}

The Coco & Eve Like A Virgin Coconut & Fig Hair Masque smells ah-mazing! It's enriched with raw virgin coconut from Bali and fig essence. Having fine, thin hair that goes limp quite easily I was concerned this would smooth my hair into non-existence, but I needn't have worried. It resulted in smooth, soft, nourished, healthy looking hair, but not a lack of volume. I still used my root-lifting spray and volume mousse as well as volume dry shampoo at the roots, because my stupid hair needs all this just to look decent, but I had added shine and extra hydration as a bonus! {cruelty-free, gluten-free, sulphate and paraben-free, vegan}





The Liar Wrinkle Cheater Eye Serum comes in a handy eye roller and is 100% natural, containing Hyoxinol to boost cell renewal, Hyaluronic Acid to deeply hydrate and copper to heal and smooth the skin. I love that the roller ball cools upon application as this is always a lovely feeling. The formula is a thin clear serum which absorbs easily. I haven't noticed that much of a difference in terms of wrinkle reduction yet, but will continue using it and see what happens. {cruelty-free, vegan, safe to use whilst pregnant and breastfeeding}

The Model Co Highlighting Shimmer Whip really surprised me! I'm not usually a fan of cream highlights, normally opting for powder highlighters, but this shimmer whip is really pretty and super flattering! It applies and blends well and can be built up for more of a pop of radiance if that's what you desire. I also applied a tiny bit down the bridge of my nose and on my cupid's bow for that finishing touch to my look. I enjoyed getting my glow on with this Champagne shade!

I'm always eager to try more products from the Yes To range, and I much prefer these types of masks over the increasingly popular sheet masks. The Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Mud Mask contains 96% natural ingredients including charcoal to draw out impurities, salicylic acid to treat and prevent acne breakouts and a botanical blend of tomato, watermelon and pumpkin to condition the skin. The consistency of this mask is super thick, so much so that it was difficult getting it out of the packet and applying it to the skin! I could also feel it sitting heavily on my face. However it was worth the effort, because I experienced tighter pores, more even skin tone and brighter skin. Overall a vast improvement!

I love the John Plunkett Cosmeceuticals range of skincare! One of my favourite ever eye creams is the John Plunkett Collagen Eye Lift Firming Eye Cream which I've blogged about here so I was keen to try the Plunkett's NS Intensive Working Hands cream from their Nutri-Synergy range. This is an intensive repair treatment that provides relief for dry, cracked skin, rough patches, sensitive skin and frequently washed hands. I found it to be hydrating, nourishing and great to smooth out dry skin on my cuticles. A really lovely hand cream which I also enjoy using on my elbows!

  1. I love these kind of boxes as there are always surprises to be had. I like the idea of the generous sizes too as sometimes you really only get a 'one-use' sample. I might check this out and also the Christmas one sounds interesting. Have a great week.

  2. I used to love my Bellabox deliveries. I am still using my treats now and it must be 12 months since I ceased collaborating with them. It’s fun receiving a surprise beauty parcel each month.

    1. Yes those samples seem to build up quickly don't they! I'm going to have to make sure I use these quickly, I've got so many in the cupboard to sort through as well!

  8. I probably wouldn't subscribe because I am very minimalist and a bit boring when it comes to products but I love that there's so much variety and that there's something for face, hair, hands and make up too!
