December BellaBox Review!

Hello, gorgeous girls!
Apparently, wishful thinking does work! I was just hoping for one of my beauty boxes to turn up so I wouldn't rip the wrapping off the presents under the tree, when lo and behold! My December Bella Box arrived! Ciao, Bella! Not only that, it was also unexpected because I didn't get a tracking number this month, and my postie almost forgot to drop it off - he was already out the door, when he turned back and handed it to me. Ahh... Happy Friday indeed, everyone!

This month also welcomes the new packaging - again! Goodbye, pillow boxes, hello, sturdy brown box! All of my items got here in one piece without being smooshed, spilling, or falling apart. Winning!

I'm sure you're sick of my rambling by now, so without further ado, here is what my December Bella Box contained! The theme this month, instead of Christmas, is Celebrate Summer.

1) Benefit Porefessional Primer 7.5ml - are you trying to spoil us, beauty boxes, by presenting us with 2 Benefit products in quick succession? While not a new product, Porefessional certainly is terribly popular, so for those who have been living under a rock, or just too broke to afford the Aussie prices, this is a great way to test drive it! A little goes a loooong way, so this tube will last for ages! Smoothens and grips my makeup, I love this stuff. This is my holy grail for primers!

2) Bella Box Limited Edition Tote - ok, I will admit that this is quite bright and cute, but I will highly advise any other beauty boxes who are looking into it to stop right now - I already have so many little totes that this is redundant. Also, I find it hard to believe that the RRP would be $19.95. Still, it's always handy to have a cotton bag at work in case I need to transport stuff home. It's marked as a gift, so, kind of a bonus, I take it?

3) Romy Shampoo and Conditioner in Cinnamon and Cocoa 15ml - gorgeous warm scents! One whiff of this, and all I could think of was a cinnamon scroll, with some raisins. Very odd for my mind to go straight to raisins, but this reminds me of it, for some strange reason. I get the feeling I might be smelling my hair A LOT with this in it!
$0.99 each

4) Avene Antirougeurs 5ml - this is supposed to tone down redness and soothe skin. Ahh, Avene, I was wondering where you got to. There you are again! I don't have problems with redness generally, but this is worth keeping on hand, just in case!

5) Simple Kind to Eyes Makeup Remover50ml  - I just finished one of these about a month ago! It's not bad, but isn't quite as good at removing mascara as I'd like it to be.

6) Mary Kay Limited Edition Cheek Tint (full size) - yay, yay, yay! Full size! This is a gorgeous colour, called Pink Pearl, but does have a lot of shimmer. We'll see how it goes on!

7) Eslor Sample Pack - 5ml each
- Comforting Mask $4.99
- Replenishing Scrub $3.69
- Soothing Cream $8.45
- Soothing Refiner and Cleanser $3.07
These look exciting! I've never heard of them before, but I do have a trip coming up, so this pack might be helpful!

8) Mor Essentials Hand Cream in Neroli Clementine - I've smelled this before and liked the scent! Hello, emergency hand cream!

Quite a great box this month! That's a total of $93.53! Sure there wasn't much in the way of Christmassy stuff, which I was expecting, seeing as it's December, but still a pretty strong box! For $15 every month, you can also sign up to Bellabox. See more details over here.

Have you received your yet? Are you happy with your items?


  1. Nice selection! The Porefessional is a great primer! xo


    1. Hi Jen! Thanks for dropping by! I agree - it's my favourite primer ever!

  2. Hello lovely, just came across your blog and it's great! Glad the postie delivered it ok!!

    I'm your newest follower, looking forward to your next post! :)

    Please check out my blog if you can, Thank you!


    1. Hi Helen! Thank you for coming by! I've looked, and joined! :) Happy with this month's beauty box, but jealous of the choice that you lot get over there!

  3. ok, I'm jealous :( last months BB made me feel ok about having un-subbed.. now I wanna join again lol That's a great box, the tote is definitely not worth $20, and I hate when these boxes mark prices up like that thinking we're all idiots! The fashion boxes are the worst, $30 necklace which is really $4 on eBay!
    Anyways.. I gotta get me some POREfessional x

    1. You can't think like that! They did have a couple of weak months, so it's understandable! Perhaps this was a Christmas special?

  4. This looks like a really great box. I'm not a subscriber but I love seeing what lovely things are in the boxes each month. The Benefit sample is quite exciting and the MK cheek tint looks super pretty!

  5. Ohhh this box definitely seems so much more exciting than the LHI box. I can't wait!! I need a new Benefit Porefessional =)

    Out of all the boxes you're subscribed to which ones your fave? ❤
