I wanted to share with you a little snapshot of the upcoming Vogue X Bellabox beauty box that has been curated to be chock-full of luxe beauty samples from all across the globe. This little box sure isn’t little on value boasting a massive value of $180 for only $79.95, containing 11 well-loved products, and quite a few all-time favourite products for me. This box is such a great way to try luxury items without having to fork out for the full-size not knowing if the product works for you or not.
Let’s take a peak inside…
The first thing that took my eye was a glossy white Quay Australia case. If you haven’t heard of it, Quay is a ridiculously popular and bang on trend sunglasses brand. The sunnies included are in the style ‘PLAYA‘. These are a very flattering universal aviator style, highlighted by the silver chrome frame and super reflective mirrored lenses. These little babies alone would set you back $60.
Next up is the very famous, MAC Strobe Cream. This little luminous beauty is a must have in any makeup collection. It can be used in a myriad of ways from a brightening primer to a crazy bright instagram worthy highlight. I have been using this wonder-product for many years, and still haven’t managed to get through a whole bottle (a little goes a verrrry long way), so this little sample size is a perfect little taste. Also, if you use the code ‘BELLABOX’ on the MAC website, you will be eligible for free shipping – yes please!
If you scroll through my blog or instagram feed, it wouldn’t take you long to find a Stevie K product. Which is why the inclusion of a Stevie K Give ‘Em Lip is really exciting. These lippies are not only super pigmented, but they are also creamy and nourishing. This is one of my all-time favourite formulas to date. And what makes it even better, is that these bad boys were developed and made right here in Australia. Melbourne to be exact. Use the code ‘BELLABOX’ to get 25% off at steviekcosmetics.com
Another favourite product of mine is the ORIBE Dry Texturising Spray. This clever little invisible spray adds a gorgeous amount volume to the roots while also acting as a dry shampoo. As someone with very fine hair, I need all the help I can get when it comes to volume and this product is my go-to. I actually prefer the travel size as it is easy to pop into your handbag and have voluminous hair on the go.
We are on a roll with favourite beauty products – it is like this box was made specifically for me. The Take Off The Day Balm by Clinique is my absolute holy grail when it comes to make-up removal. This balm dissolves every little bit of makeup on your face without stripping the skin of all that important moisture. This balm doesn’t irritate my skin or leave too much of an oily residue. I am so happy of the inclusion of the travel sized pot as it will be great for travel and perfect for the babes testing this little hard-worker out for the first time.
The Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate Serum is another product that I have spoken about on numerous occasions. It is not often that I see visible results from a product in only a few days, but this serum is no joke. Even after first use, my skin is plump, hydrated and glowing. Genifique is really light and easily absorbed and is perfect under makeup and is a practical addition to your skincare regime.
Jurlique is another brand that I have grown to love over time. The Herbal Recovery Advanced Eye Serum is a lovely light, easily absorbed serum that is full of potent antioxidants that boost radiance and hydration. This product has worked well for me in the past, and I am looking forward to giving it another go. The size of this little guy is fabulous for an eye product as you only need a small amount and this gives you a chance to experience it without any wastage.
The following products are brand-new to me and I am really looking forward to trialling them and possibly discovering new favourites.
Crabtree & Evelyn Lavender & Espresso Hand Therapy. This hand cream smells incredible. It seems like such a strange mix of scents as lavender has such a calming, soothing effect, while coffee is known for it’s uplighting and energising properties. This hand cream is silky smooth and feels lovely on the skin. I have popped this little tube into my handbag and I am looking forward to using it a little more.
Molton Brown Comice Pear & Wild Honey Liquid Hand Wash. While admittedly I thought a hand wash was a strange inclusion for a luxury beauty box, it does smell lovely and it sure does look lush. I am not familiar with Molton Brown, but going by the fragrance it is definitely going to be a winner next to my sink.
While I am no stranger L’Occitane, the Shea Light Comforting Cream is a newie for me. L’Occitane always produce the most gorgeous skincare items full of beautiful botanicals. This particular cream is said to provide all-day long hydration and protection due to the addition of omega-6 in the formula. I am looking forward to giving this a go as I have had fabulous success with their products in the past.
And finally the last product is the Dr Lewinns Eternal Youth Skin Polishing Exfoliant. Formulated with green tea, and charcoal this scrub is said to slough away dead skin cells and draw out impurities from within the skin. As someone with blackheads and issues with texture this sounds really interesting.
So, that rounds up all the fancy products in the Vouge X Bellabox collab. This is the first box in a while that has really captured my attention. The products are of really high quality and most have a cult status, so it is perfect for those looking to try some new luxury items, or for those of us that already love these products and would benefit from travel sizes.
