I’ve subscribed to Bellabox Singapore since it began in October this year. I’ve waited a while to write a review because I understand that when you run a start-up venture, the beta edition of your product or service can be tricky to perfect, at best.
For those of you unfamiliar with the concept,
Bellabox delivers the latest deluxe beauty products to your door, brand new and exclusive for you at SGD 15.00 a month. We handpick and deliver five of the most luxurious beauty products to hit the market. Discover new products you will love, and make new purchases with confidence.
Like many others (from what I’ve read), I was not that impressed with the contents of the first Bellabox but was willing to wait it out and see what the next month or two had in store before making a judgement – and I am very glad I did.
Just a quick written rundown: the first box contained 50ml bottles of Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo and Conditioner each, miniature vial of Oscar de la Renta Esprit d’Oscar eau de parfum, a 30ml bottle of OPI Avojuice Skin Quenchers, and three ultra-soft hair-ties called Twistbands. I enjoyed all these products but was hopeful that the next box would be a little more… exciting.
The second box, meanwhile, contained a tiny tube of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) Lip Tar in Pageant (a very bright blue-pink shade), a 1.8ml sample vial of Duchess Marden Damascena Anti-Wrinkle Serum, a 9ml sachet of Korres Guava Body Butter, two Skin Factory Eye Dream Honey Patches, and 75ml bottles of Davines Melu Mellow Anti-Breakage Lustrous Shampoo and Conditioner respectively. Of all these, I enjoyed the shampoo and conditioner the most. At this stage, my confidence in Bellabox Singapore was growing steadily.
I received the December Bellabox just a few moments ago and am so happy with its contents that I’m preliminarily blogging about it 🙂 Here’s what my box contains:
- Sothys [W]+ Brightening Fluid (two sample packs)
- Sothys [W]+ Brightening Mask (two sample packs)
- Sothys Gift Certificate worth SGD 50.00 towards a Sothys Professional/Institute Face Treatment at participating salons throughout Singapore (hurray! Self-pampering in the New Year!)
- Faust’s Potion – Asleep Potion in Red Berry (25ml)
- OPI Nail Lacquer in Not Like the Movies (miniature size, 3.75ml)
- Savoir Faire Cosmetics lipstick in Deja Vu (this lipstick is gorrrrrgeous, I cannot emphasise this enough! Syen, I think Deja Vu is a colour you would love!)
- Eylure Eyelashes – Sex and the City Collection (Miranda)
Also, a sweet touch to the box – the good folks at Bellabox Singapore included a small pack of strawberry-flavoured jellybeans in this month’s box as a little bonus. How thoughtful of them 🙂 There’s nothing like the personal touch to add charm to any product or service!
