August 2014 Bellabox: Review

*Sponsored Post*

The weather has been really crazy lately with the scorching sun isn’t it? Well, this month’s Bellabox came just in time for me! Time to immerse into the summer frenzy with August’s Bellabox themed Summer Fresh. The beauty goodies in this month’s box are really substantial, so much so that the beauty box came in a paper bag instead because there were literally no space to pack some of the items inside the blue polka-dotted box!


My box is basically full of skincare products for the hot sun – lots of sunscreen – and there are others like organic haircare, premium tea etc., all for only S$19.95 with free shipping! The value of all the products added together is definitely worth a few times more than what you are paying for.

Without further ado, let’s look into the bellabox!

First up, some travel-sized products.

Finale Whitening Cream – S$15.90 for 30g
A natural whitening cream that works to significantly brighten dull areas like the underarm and the inner thigh, perfect for adorning that sexy swimwear of yours! I’m going to be trying it out, prolly around my underarm area where there are some hyperpigmentation to test out the effects.

Laneige Water Bank Essence Ex – S$60 for 60g
Heard a lot about Laneige’s Water Bank range and this bestselling ultra-hydrating essence was included inside! My skin is rather dry deep within even though it’s acne-prone so hydrating it is very important to prevent excessive sebum production. Quite excited to try this out after using shu uemura’s Depsea Hydrability range!

UV Aqua White Starter Kit – S$28.90 for CC cream, S$25.90 for Daily Defence Serum, S$15.90 for Purifying Toner
The UV Aqua White starter kit containing a CC cream, serum and a purifying toner helps to achieve “snowy white, dewy bright” skin. Boasting a potent W.H.I.T.E. complex (which I have no idea what it is) in an exclusive 5 benefits in 1 botanical formulation, each product works to whiten, hydrate, illuminate, tighten and increase skin elasticity. Definitely a must-try if you’re into that glowy, radiant skin effect.

Petal Fresh Organics Aloe & Citrus Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner – S$14.90 for 475ml each
A revitalising and hydrating duo that moisturises and soothes with organic aloe vera, then gently cleanses and rejuvenates with organic citrus. Love the fresh citrus scent of this duo and it totally smells like summer! I am pretty excited with this one 🙂

Alexiares & Ani The Deity SPF30 Mattifying Sunscreen – S$39 for 30ml
Most excited with trying this product! With the weather so hot, a mattifying sunscreen is just what I need to protect me from the harmful UV rays and keep my oily skin matte! Tried it once and I think it’s pretty good! In terms of its texture, it does what it claims to do – to leave a featherweight matte finish! Plus, it’s full-sized! Thumbs up for this darling!

Sleek Kajal Eyeliner in Nocturnal – S$14 for 4g
A bold black crayon that imparts a soft, creamy texture. Glides on the lids for a highly pigmented finish. Personally, I am not a fan of kajal liners because they aren’t waterproof and with my oily lids, non-waterproof products will simply slip and slide off my skin under the hot sun. However, I’m still going to experiment with this to see how it will best work for me.

BONUS: Tealy Premium Tea – S$11-$12.50 for a box of 20 teabags
The ones I received are Mint Rooibos and Anjou Paradise Ceylon, which are some exotic ones in my opinion. I have tried some from Tealy before like the Wonder Berry Chocolate Truffle and I was impressed by the scent and taste of it! Basically I’m a tea-lover so these came in just in time for me!

BONUS: Kneipp Bodycare – S$14.90 for body wash, S$34.90 for body lotion, S$22.90 for body oil
Containing natural aromatherapeutic and nourishing benefits, the body care products are sure to rejuvenate and nourish the skin! I received a sachet of lemongrass and olive body wash and lotion each, perfect for travelling!

So that pretty much sums up the contents in the Summer Fresh bellabox! Bellabox never fail to surprise and I really love how the products in the box suit the theme so well!
