I received my January Bellabox in the post yesterday. I was eager to get it because it was late to arrive and I was excited after I saw the preview of potential box items on the BB website.
When I actually opened my Bellabox, however, I was more than a little disappointed with the contents.
This month’s contents:
- Swisse Body Wash with Vitamin B3 & Macrobiotic Sea Minerals
- Plunkett’s 99% Pure Aloe Vera Cooling Gel
- Innoxa Nail Polish in ‘Grape’
- The Little Alchemist Cacao & Banana Face Glow
- Natio Pure Mineral Skin Perfecting BB Cream SPF15
The consensus in and around social media circles is that this month’s box was pretty disappointing and people weren’t happy to receive items that were far from “luxury” products. Many have even gone so far as to cancel their subscriptions over it. It could just be that January is a hard month to fill beauty box orders, as businesses are closed over Christmas and marketing products straight after the holidays isn’t a high priority. I’ll wait and see what the February box is like before I pass final judgement on the matter, however.
In much more exciting news, my order from House Of Harlow 1960 arrived and I was a lot happier when I opened that package! I bought the Cross Hoop Earrings and Engraved Triangle Pendant Necklace (both on sale, and then even further discounted with a nifty code from RetailMeNot!) Both items are gorgeous, fantastic quality and purchased at a great price. I can’t believe I hadn’t seen any HoH accessories before a couple of weeks ago. The aesthetic of the brand really suits my style, I love it!
