Bella Box

Welcome to My very First Bella Box Post.

For those who don't already know what Bella Box is, think Birch Box, Carmine or Boudoir Prive, and for those who Are still out of the Loop, Where have you been?????? 

Bella Box is a Monthly Subscription service that allows you to sample 5 high end products and one Lifestyle Product every month for the low price of $15, Including Postage, and the best part is, it's AUSTRALIAN. 

Bella box debuted in October with their very first box, which I hear was amazing. The company was also a sponsor of the Spring Racing Carnival and Provided specialised boxes for Guests on the day. And after such  a Hyped start, they are back for November and they didn't dissapoint.  

This Company is very dedicated to providing a service, not just a purchasing site and so far they seem to be doing what they have promised.

I wasn't lucky enough to get my hands on an October Box, but here's Novembers.

When it first arrived I was so excited, I mean, look at the postage box, its adorable, and the Best thing, its not Black and Pink! 

The Pale Blue and Beige was continued into the Actual Box in an alternating pattern, so cute. The box is also amazing quality, so its a keeper.
When I opened up the box, I was delighted to find that it was just as classy on the inside as it had been so far, with a perfectly placed card, that of course matches!
The Information card is thick and sturdy, perfectly printed. The introduction is worth a read to. 
Now on to the product information.  As you can see, it is perfectly laid out, Easy to read, and in some sort of order. The card is also like to the two Boxes, alternating side to side.
I was surprised that the Tissue Paper was Black, and not on theme with the Beige and Pale Blue, but it did ad drama to to very subtle, yet stylish layout. 
And not to skip a beat, they sticker is even perfectly matching, and the edges have been trimmed to fit the borders. 
Now for the exciting bit, the Products! Boy they did not dissapoint. 
From Left to Right: Gatineau 'Melatogenine Force Collagene', Kenzo 'MadlyKanzo' Perfume, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics 'Lip Tar', Orofluido Hair Oil and Lancome 'Visionnaire'
There was also a Hair band, but I managed to misplace it when trying it out, Its called a Twistband.

The first product I pulled out was the Brightest (of course) and that product was 'Madly Kenzo' Perfume by Kenzo. The bottle of this perfume is stunning, especially for a sample bottle, not to mention its a great size. This perfume has been described on the card as 'A new radiant and daring fragrance, terribly sensual. The scent of a woman who overturns conventions'.
 This is s strange fragrance, with notes of Orange Blossom and Vanilla, or so they say. I personally cannot smell any Vanilla or Orange Blossom, Just a strong Incense scent, There are florally notes as well, but nothing noticeable.  The fragrance was released in August and was not met with a warm welcome, it has been slandered, and, although I know it is not to everyone's taste, I think some people have been two harsh, it is the sort of fragrance I will be using in summer when its scolding hot and I want something to freshen me up. But not something overwhelming. 
Next up is the Gatineau 'Melatogenine Force Collagene' Which is a wrinkle cream, designed to extremely improve the effects of wrinkles. Now I haven't used this and nor will I, but I plan on giving it to my mum to try as im busy enough treating my acne, little own treating wrinkles. But I will update you on this. This perfume is quite pricey, at $87 for 30ml.

The sample size is not very impressive, I believe its 5ml, which is not a substantial sample, but given the fact that it is $150.00 for 30ml, I do understand.  
The thing I was most excited about is the OCC Lip Tar in the colour Trollop, which I have been dying to try, and I love it!  This is a mix between a lipstick, lip stain and a Gloss, its last for ages, isn't drying and has a great colour pay off. The colour is described by the Bella Box website as a Pink Cranberry Coral, which I think is very close, it is a bold colour, but the undertones of soft coral make it very wearable. The 8ml sample is very generous, given how far it goes, Im looking into purchasing more. These are $16 from the Bella Box website.
Lancome 'Visionnaire', was another very exclusive product to find in this months box. This product is designed to reduce wrinkles, pores and unevenness in the skin. I haven't yet tried this Product but im excited to see if it works its magic on the rather large pores on my nose. 
This retails at $115.00 for 30mls so the 5ml is very generous as you have already made your $15 back on this alone.
And this Final High end Product is Orofluido hair oil, which I actually already own, But its always worth it to have some more. I love this product and use it all the time, This has been the saviour of my hair.
The sample is The same size as the other samples I have received in the past, with full sizes, so im happy with this. 
Finally in the bottom is a Little Booklet from the Kenzo Brand which talks about the Brand as a whole and their initiative's for the future. It does make for an interesting read. 

Sorry for such a long post, but I really wanted to truly introduce both Australians and Internationals to this wonderful Service, I hope you enjoyed.
