Review: BellaBox December Box

I was lucky enough to be sent BellaBox's December Box to test out and review.

The theme of this month's BellaBox was 'Summer Glow', and true to that theme, they included a wide variety of products that would be great summer additions.

The products I received this month were:

Gilded Cage Charisma Lipgloss in Aurora
I have this lip gloss in another shade and love it. This aurora shade is a gorgeous light sparkly pink, that unfortunately does not suit me, so I will be giving to a friend. Gilded Cage lip glosses are the best though; from the quality to the finish to the non-stickiness when applied.
RRP $28

Reef Dry Sun Tan Oil SPF 30+
I have grown up seeing this brand everywhere, but haven't tried it before. I didn't know that Reef made products with an SPF 30+, so will be curious to see how it performs when we next have a nice day in Tasmania! Surprisingly, this isn't too greasy on the skin despite it being an oil/sunscreen hybrid. It has a yummy coconut scent too!
RRP $11.49 for 125ml

Cetaphil Dermacontrol Oil-Control Foam Wash
I am the biggest Cetaphil fan as their products are formulated for fussy skin like mine, so I was super excited to see Cetaphil in this month's box. Unfortunately, this cleanser isn't the greatest fit with my skin; as I have dry skin, so I will stick to their gentle cleanser. I do love their dermacontrol spf 30 product as a daily sunscreen over the top of my moisturiser, and recommend testing that out (oily skinned people could use the SPF 30 alone).
RRP $15.99 for 236ml

Barry M Glitter Nail Paint in Twilight
I haven't heard of this brand before but I am loving this nail polish! It's a gorgeous silver and blue glitter shade that is perfect for the Christmas season. Will be applying this as soon as I remove my glue on nails!
RRP $9.95

Pure Paw Paw Ointment in Strawberry
I could smell this product as soon as I opened this month's box! This has an amazing scent exactly like strawberry hubba-bubba chewing gum that gets your saliva glands going. Paw Paw Ointment is such a multi-purpose product and for the scent alone, I think I need all the other flavours!
RRP $4.95

Palmers Coconut Oil Formula Body Lotion Sample Sachet
I was always a fan of Palmers Cocoa Butter lotion but wasn't the biggest fan of the scent, so I was happy to see this Coconut Oil Body Lotion sachet. This is super hydrating, and smells good too!

Origani Hand and Nail Perfection Cream
I am always happy to see a hand cream sachet included as I have super dry hands and constantly  have split skin around my cuticles. Bonus points when it's from a brand I haven't heard of before! This hand cream had a lovely light scent and hydrated without any greasiness. I wish there were a few extra samples of this thrown in!

Body Boss Training Booklet
This is probably a great booklet for those right into fitness and cardio, but as someone that is unable to exercise due to a health issue, it isn't much use to me! ;)


I love the great variety of products in this month's BellaBox, and it has helped me discover a few brands I want to try more of!
