November Bellabox

I received my November Bellabox today! Yay! The theme is "Soiree Season Staples".

The first thing that took my eye when I opened the box was the Dr Lewinn's Facial Polishing Gel - I have always wanted to try this but didn't want to spend $40 (on 150g) if it was just another exfoliant. So now I can try it out!

Onto the goodies.

First up is the Dr Lewinn's Facial Polishing Gel. This is 50g of the product! What a great samples size for skincare. Can't wait to use this.

Swisse Handcream with Vitamin D and Pomegranate. This is great for me. I wash my hands a lot these day (after every nappy change - I have an 8 month old!). So my hands get a little dry sometimes. This is a perfect size for a handbag. Swisse is made in Australia too!

Palmolive Mango Body Butter Body Wash - I saw it was mango and was "nooooooo". I dislike mangos. I don't know why. However, it smells quite nice. This is 50mls. (still I wish I got strawberry!! hahaha)

4me Nail Polish Remover Pads - excellent! These looks great 30 wipes in a little plastic container and apparently "quickly remove polish while conditioning the nails and cuticles at the same time". They are acetone and alcohol free. Can't wait to try these, they look really convenient. The RRP on this is only $3.49, this is a full-sized item.

B by Bloom Colour Cheek Tint - it's a creamy tint and I got the colour "napa valley". This is a full-sized item as well. I don't usually wear cream colours on my cheeks but this looks nice. I'll test it out later and if I love it I'll post photos. Here is a closeup of the colour;

Lastly, we have these three samples.

Skinmiso Pore Beauty Nose Pack, this is a Korean product. It looks like it contains a nice strip and a strange black q-tip. It is for blackhead and whitehead removal. I secretly love those pore strips, some people have sensitive skin and shouldn't use them. As my skin is not sensitive I occasionally use them with not much success - blackheads love my nose, what can I say hahah. Really looking forward to see if this works.

Dr Lewinn's Skin Perfect Primer and Skin Perfect Foundation. I got the shade "Beige", I can pretty much tell you right now that the foundation will be too dark. I read that the ingredients are supposed to stimulate collegian production. I'll get use out of the primer though.

Bioderma Sebium h2o Cleansing Water - This is for combo to oily skin. It removed makeup and impurities with a cotton pad and you don't rinse. I've never tried this product so it's good that it is in the box.

I felt this month the box seemed really full. I'm really happy with it. Did you get the same things in your box?

    1. Has your mail come today? You might be lucky and get it. Hope you don't have to wait all weekend :)

    2. I checked my mail box and it wasn't there yet sadly :(

    3. Fingers crossed for Monday x

  2. I just got the exact box in the mail today, and I'm just about to write a blog post on it. My thoughts are the same, foundation is likely too dark and I wish I got strawberry... I am not too keen on the Dr Lewinn's facial scrub, I have used it before and I wasn't the biggest fan

    Oh did you get a card explaining the products and the price of the full size? because I didn't

    1. Yes, Kat. I did get a card explaining the items and the price. That is a bit sucky that you didn't get one. Here are the prices for you;
      Bioderma: 250ml $29.95
      Skinmiso: 10 sheets $21.99
      Dr Lewinns polishing gel: $39.95 for 150g
      Dr Lewinn primer 30 g: $29.95 foundation 30g $39.95

      I hope I won't be disappointed buy the scrub. Oh well, you win some you lose some. Glad I didn't buy the full-size now :)

    2. Thanks so much for that... I really like the hand cream and I was curious how much it costs!

      here is my review btw :)

    1. It's only $15 a month, it makes a nice treat.

  4. The cheek colour looks gorgeous! I'd much prefer that over the glitter liner I received since I hardly ever wear eyeliner.

    1. They should have just switched our bloom products hahaha. The liner looks so fun!

  5. I used to get the bellabox and then stopped as I was just getting rubbish products! Seems like they've changed their style!! Nice work!

  6. Don't you hate it when that happens..

  7. Hey I nominated you for the Liebster blog award!
