Review: Bellabox’s Chinese New Year Edition!

Hi Glamifys,

It is almost that time of year again where we all start to welcome the new year!

I was so excited to receive this month’s Bellabox in the mail earlier in the month (sorry for the late posting… sucks having the flu that drags for days on end ūüė¶ )

If you have not heard about Bellabox, click here for my Christmas edition which explains how the Bellabox system works!

As we welcome the year of the horse, BB had customized a special edition box with the new year in mind! Look at all the goodies! (The people who pack the item into the Bellabox must really organize everything so neatly or the box wont shut haha )

Each BB comes with an index card that explains all the items included for the month and how much they cost when you are ready to repurchase it :p

So first up! Mane ‘N Tail Original Shampoo and Conditioner

How apt for this year’s Zodiac Animal and yes! I have been meaning to try this as I had seen it around town in the last few months.. just never got a chance to pick it up…

Left: shampoo right : conditioner

I had tried both the shampoo and conditioner for 1 week and I found that my regularly color-treated hair became more smooth and silky. It doesn’t tangle as much too! Awesome for those with long hair that require that extra care to avoid breakages.. 1 week of use and I still have 1/4 of a bottle left. Haha will be repurchasing the full bottle soon ~~~

Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Morning Eye Rescue

The first thing you notice about this eye cream is that is not oily! I hate oily creams which causes oil seeds (milia) around the eyes as there is no way for the facial therapist to remove it due to its delicate location.

Vinosource also helped me depuff my eyebags after massaging it in for about 1 minute. I am not sure if this is recommended but I find that this works wonders when you stick in the fridge and use it as a morning perk me up! It absorbs so easily into the skin which is Whoopee! since I can immediately use my makeup without the concealer and foundation slipping and sliding everywhere ūüėÄ

Tous Rosa EDP

OMG!!! Seriously! I hate the smell of most rose scents as it can be overpowering.. However, the TOUS ROSA is so lovely. This is the only rose fragrance I would ever wear since it is mild yet long lasting. It has a sweet yet musky rose scent… perfect for that romantic night out

Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion

This is definitely a unique piece which stood out in the Bellabox. While most BB creams offer very light coverage and has a ridiculously limited range of colors, Laneige absolutely got this one right! It comes in a range of shades and has extremely high coverage without any cakey pancake face hahaha oh man… not being mean here but most companies do not make products that have pigmentation and the only way to achieve high coverage is to really pack their stuff on… So I am pretty happy that it only took one thin layer for my blemishes to be covered.

The BB cream is in a cream formula and you would apply with the sponge that comes with it. Also it has an SPF of 35 ¬†which is a must for our weather. ūüôā

Nuxe Rose Clarifying Cream Mask

When you first apply this on your face, you will notice the pleasant smell.. mild floral which is tolerable to even though with a sensitive nose. My skin is very sensitive during the time of the month and this mask smoothen out the rough patches along the sides of my face. I did not break out from it as I usually would with new cream mask. Really like the baby bu*t face and couldn’t help touching my skin hahaha

Covermark had also included a 3 piece set to achieve that flawless base!

Bellabox  included an index card that explains the goodness of its ingredients such as plant extracts and collagen for that moisturized baby-bu*t skin everyone so desires.

There is a moisture clear base which hydrated and preps the skin for your foundation. This makes the skin soft and smooth so that your makeup goes on beautifully.

Top row is clear base. Bottom row is powder.

The flawless fit is a compact cream foundation that is a traveler’s must have. It’s like a foundation and concealer all in one. Blends easily into the skin and for areas that require more coverage, pat another layer on. It’s that simple!

To top it all off, the sheer powder is extremely finely milled setting powder that is so so so soft. It’s micro size makes your makeup look so polished and professional. Thumbs up for this one!

Left is foundation and right column is clear base, foundation and powder.

Eslor introductory pack is such a comprehensive Skincare routine. I love purchasing an entire Skincare set since all the products are made to complement each other. I find that cleanser and scrub is superb for sensitive skin. Feels smooth and radiant after the 4 step process. I did this at night and my skin felt hydrated in the morning.

As an added bonus, Bellabox also included one pack of Home Secrets shaping smoothie. It’s not a meal replacement but a complement as it controls excessive hunger pangs so that you eat in moderation. It’s not too sweet which is great. No added sugar or coloring too!

I had used the Laneige BB cream for these pictures.

I also tried the Covermark set as seen below.
