Wow, I can't believe it's been almost a month since I posted on my blog!!!! I'm not really sure how that happened but rest assured I'll be giving it plenty attention once again :)
Some of you may remember last year that I was subscribed to about four of the Australian Beauty Sample boxes, after many months of receiving some pretty wonderful things I decided that my poor little bedroom could no longer accommodate any more sample products :(
When Bellabox contacted me this month and asked me if I would like to review their August box and hold a Giveaway I was more than happy to say yes :D Unfortunately I only just received my box late on Friday so the Giveaway will now be postponed until September so keep a look out for that!!!
For those of you who may not be familiar with this sample box, it is a little box that you subscribe to and purchase for $15.00 per month and in return you will be sent 5 - 7 products (some full size) to try out.
The August box was all about Green and Natural products, I'm pretty sure by now you would have to agree with me that this is the way to go when it comes to beauty products if you can.
So what did I have in my box you may ask :) I shall tell you .....
Firstly there was Ro's Argan Body Conditioner by Lush 45g
- I really like this, it smells beautiful like most Lush products, it's said to smell of roses and lemon, I'm not quite sure if that's the smell I get but it smells lovely anyhow :) I've been using it on my legs and they feel silky soft which is great because the shorts are starting to come out now as the weather is warming up :) Love the little tin this comes in as it's very handy to just throw in your bag if your off to the beach!
Then we have the Eye of Horus Liquid Define Eyeliner
, this is labelled as non-smudge and waterproof, I had this eye liner on for about 4-5 hours with really good results, it hadn't smudged at all so that's pretty good in my mind. This was a full sized product :)
USPA Organic Wild Thyme Foot Pumice
- I haven't had a chance to try this one out yet but I will very soon, the smell is a little ... um ... not so nice so I haven't been eager to use it, hahaha but luckily my feet are far away from my nose so it shouldn't be too much of a problem when I do (I hope) :D
Next up was the Luk Beautifood Lip Nourish
, this feels lovely and moisturising on the lips, mine is in the tan colour and once it's applied it's pretty natural looking (sheer). There wasn't any labelling on the tube but after reading up on it the reason was that it's not even in the shops yet!!! Wow, one of the first to try it that's nice :)
Then there was the Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion
which worked very nicely on my arms, we all know after winter our skin can feel a little dry when you put the short sleeves on so moisturiser is a must to get it looking and feeling great, I have no problem with this product at all, and it's fragrance free which is a bonus :)
There were also sample sizes of the EmerginC skincare products
which I haven't tried yet, it really is hard to get a good idea about skincare products from small sample sizes, to me you have to trial these products over a few weeks to see if they really work well for you. The packaging was pretty cute though :) More samples of the Daily C Vitamin Powder
, there were a couple of sachets of this, I've tried this and it doesn't taste 'tragic' which is nice, hahaha .... If you like these types of drinks you would probably enjoy them a little more, they are sugar free with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives in them :)
and lastly, there was a bonus 'free with purchase' offer of a bottle of Bodhi Me Hand Wash
to anyone who purchases from the Bellabox store in the month of August!!!
Well there you have it, I must say it was nice to receive this little box again and it was also nice to try out some things I haven't tried before :)

Thank you Bellabox for sending me the August box, I really enjoyed my little samples!!!
