    Thanks so much for the tip Cass!!! I always seem to miss the extra discounts on Groupon so it’s great to know what their usual days are! And I conpletely forgot about black friday, thanks a million for reminding me!! I’ll hold off on getting it til then. xx

    Bumping this thread – is anyone or more recently subscribed to Bellabox who can let me know what the boxes are like nowadays? I just saw a Groupon to get 3 months subscription for $19.95 which has me thinking it’s not a bad deal, but wanting to know of anyone has some more recent opinions?? I’ve had a stalk of their insta site, looks like it’s still a mixed bag and NZ seem to have better boxes…Be interested to hear recent thoughts on both the womens and men’s boxes if anyone has any experience of the latter. Thanks xx

    I would recommend against Bellabox.

    It’s too much of a rollercoaster – some months the box will seem okay, some months the box will seem less than okay. It’s not worth it and you should spend the money on another subscription box!

    I’ve been subscribed since December and the only reason I still am is because June is the last month the price increase won’t affect older subscribers. I also kind of enjoy receiving the boxes to blog about it and warn other people against them, haha.

    I have been looking into signing up to one or two of these but there are a few to choose from. Which are best for mostly organic and aussie brands?

    Received my May beauty box today, and I was somewhat disappointed:

    Highlighter pencil
    MORE Palmer’s
    Another eye pencil
    Real-U Control + Face Gel (one of the things I’m excited to try out)
    Impulse Romantic Spark (I got given a heap of these from a friend!)
    Gradual Tan Extender (It’s winter… Why tan?)

    This is the last of my three-month subscription and, to be honest, I’ve only been impressed with the first box which contained Palmer’s and Essie nail polish. Every foundation sample was too dark!

    The other thing I have noticed is depending on which state you live in, your products are different. Some get really worthy samples, whilst other’s not so much. Would love to hear opinions about this.

    Lol yep an actual highlighter pen.. The sad thing is it’s the best thing in the box! I guess the Chapstick will come in handy but I have heaps as they’re a handbag staple and they cost $3!!

    They’ve already taken out April’s payment so it looks like I’ll be getting one more box.

    I just wish there was a box filled with deluxe sized lippy and mascara samples.. And body washes!

    The last good box that I got from Bellabox was when there was the full sized Kora moisturiser. Actually, it was a pretty crap box too but it had the Kora moisturiser which more than made up for the crap.

    It’s a shame that we don’t get the same variety and quality of other countries subscription boxes..

    Same with me, my last decent box was the Kora face moisturiser. While I don’t expect a $55 face cream too often, my box in March was pretty ordinary. I did get a Bioderma cream in a 15mls tube which made the box half decent, added up to somewhere near $30 in value, but I noticed a lot of people got boxes worth well under the $15 – even with a ‘bonus highlighter’. They still haven’t worked out a system where people get reasonable value boxes worth around the same, across the board. Not the best business model

    I’m on a yearly sub with them, but will definitely think twice when it’s coming for renewal.

    I came back from easter weekend away and got a similarly disappointing “March” box;

    one orange highlighter pen
    Kerastasse nectar thermique sachet (will use but this is the 3rd month out of last 4 I’ve received it)
    revlon foundation sachet 4 shades too dark for me
    Avene Clenance lotion sample
    Palmers makeup remover sample
    Palmers day cream sample
    Colour theory eye pencil in black.

    I could forgive getting a cheapie eye pencil if it was a colour. I have enough black liners of a decent brand and quality, i dont need another cheapo one.
    If I count the value of everything in the box, I’d be lucky if it was worth $10.

    Seeya later Bellabox!

    Here is a pic of said highlighter for those playing at home 😛

    Oh my goodness…. At least it looks like It’s a new line of highlighter’s. I think you should definitely ask them how It’s meant to be used, as suggested above. would be funny!

    I seriously have no words for this!!!

    when I read your initial post I interpreted highlighter as illuminator, until you reiterated pen!

    Does the highlighter work or was it meant for the bin? lol

    You should ask them if the highlighter should be used a blush or eyeshadow.


    I should do my make up and use it as an actual ‘highlighter’, contouring my face.. I’d then need to tell them I’ve seen the light and will now get all of my makeup from Officeworks.

    Please do, that would be hilarious. 🙂 🙂 🙂
