October Bellabox goodies

I am very lucky to be the recipient of a 3 month gift subscription to Bellabox, and I just received my first one! October's Bellabox theme was Spring Racing Carnival. The box that came in the post was very neat, and printed with bellabox on the outside, so there's no mistaking what's inside.

The Postal Box
Once you open the outer box, you find an adorable blue and white polka dot gift box inside.

Description card
A convenient little card with product descriptions, and another with product ingredients are included.

Details of the products

What I got:
LAQA & CO Cheeky Lip - One of those 2 in 1 products that you can use for lip colour or blush. I tried it on my lips, and liked the rosy pink colour of it on me. I have not yet tried it as blush, but it is a nice rosy hue, so it should suit my skin tone

LAQA & CO Cheeky Lip crayon

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Golden Shimmer - At first I thought this was a nail polish, as that's what the bottle looks like. It wasn't until I opened it I realised that it wasn't. It smells pretty, but I'm not sure how much use I will get from glitter oil.

Batiste Dry Shampoo - Not a product I regularly use, but something I always want to like more. I know a lot of girls use dry shampoo to help with root volume when styling their hair, and that is something I'm not great at, so maybe I will give this product a go, hopefully it will be better than ones I've used in the past.

John Frieda Sheer Blonde Colour Renew Tone-correcting Shampoo - I am not actually a huge fan of toners, as I like a bit of golden hue to my blonde, and the last toning shampoo I used turned my hair blue. This one doesn't seem to have anywhere near as much pigment in it as the last one I used, so I will happily give it a go. I am due to fix up my roots any day now, so I will test it with a fresh colour.

Cetaphil Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion - I don't own a lot of moisturisers, as my skin is fairly oily, but I use the occasional one for my hands after cleaning, and this one does a pretty good job, plus it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin, so that's a bonus!

Dermal Therapy Heel Balm -  I used to keep my feet fairly pampered, but they have been a bit neglected lately. This will help me get them back to the baby softness they used to be.

Bellabox Goodies!
All in all I am pretty happy with the contents I received. Normally priced, bellabox costs $15 plus $2.95 shipping, and I would be happy paying that for what I got. Most of the things included I will get use out of. While the contents are supposed to be tailored to your needs and likes, I did receive golden shimmer body oil, which enhances tanned skin, and I definitely don't have tanned skin, so I'm sort of questioning just how customised they really are. But I did get blonde shampoo, so they got that right at least.

I am already looking forward to receiving November's box, and I am hoping it will be Christmas themed!
