In New Zealand we don't have very many beauty box subscriptions who ship to us. I tried the May 2021 BellaBox, shipped from Australia, and really enjoyed it.
Here's a rundown of what I received, contents do vary from box to box, and the May box is no longer available.
BellaPierre Brown Eyed Girl Eyeshadow Palette - When it comes to eyeshadows, I admit to being a little fussy. I really love eyeshadow and feel like I've tried just about every type - from the appalling, to the exquisite. I didn't have high hopes for this one, although I liked the colours that were teased in the preview, so I was actually quite impressed once I got my hands on it and tried it out myself.
The colours are well pigmented, and stay on very well. They blend nicely and are easy to apply with a finger or brush. I did think the two shimmery shades are perhaps a bit too similar, but they are both nice and can easily be used together. The glitter packs a big punch and looks great both in real life and in selfies, just be careful not to apply too close to the eye and it does require some effort to remove. My favourite is the dark rich burgundy shade, this is a unique one in my collection and will be a go-to shade for me now.
I think this would be a great little palette for travelling too. The shimmery shades are an easy "one and done" look, and all four shades work well together to create a going out look.
The one downside to this lovely palette is the lack of availability - it appears to be for sale on the USA Bella Pierre site but not the Australian version, and isn't readily available in stores.
Goodness Facial Oil - This was a small sample size but is such a lovely product to use, and since it's readily available in supermarkets here, it's one I'd consider purchasing too. Full of beneficial, skin nurturing ingredients, and great for winter. Doesn't feel oily or greasy, blends in very well .
Despite looking unimpressed in the photo, I absolutely loved this oil!
Ulta3 Eye Patches - These are unfortunately just single use, but they felt nice on my skin. They didn't stick on very well and needed to be reapplied every time I moved my face! Obviously being a single use item, it is hard to see a noticeable effect but I could see them being a part of an at home beauty treatment routine.
Philosophy Renewed Hope in a Jar Eye Cream - I have wanted to try Philosophy's products ever since the earlier days of the internet when I first saw their 3-in-1 Washes with gorgeous scents like Birthday Cake. They have come a long way since then with a full range of skincare too. Hope in A Jar is their well known moisturiser, and this is the eye cream version of that. I liked the sample size, and I think a little would go a long way. It is quite lightweight and smooth, easy to apply and blends nicely into the skin.
Again with the Resting Bitch Face, but I really did enjoy the eye cream! As a bonus, the eye makeup in this photo is the BellaPierre palette too
Evolis Hair Loss Treatment - Unfortunately my scalp is too damaged due to bleach to be able to use this product. I am definitely intrigued by it, it sounds like a rather unique product . How it works is it inhibits FGF5 in your scalp, which is a protein that causes hair loss and shortens your hair life cycle.
I paid for my BellaBox this month using a discount code. All opinions are honest and my own.
