February Bellabox Review!

Hello lovelies!

My February Bellabox arrived this morning, which was a great start to the day! Knowing I'm going to receive something like this really gives me a reason to look forward to going to work!

While I really do love Bellabox, I'm a bit frustrated because I'm actually in the same suburb/state as them and yet, I'm always one of the last to receive my Bellabox! How's that for irony?! It makes it a bit hard for me to visit other blogs or their FB wall in case I see a spoiler, but since Bellabox often hand out different contents for each box, there's still always an element of surprise, I suppose! From teaser photos they posted on their Facebook page (see below), I think we subscribers all expected to find at least a couple of items from the photo in our boxes, but as far as I can tell, no one has actually received any of the items pictured! Which is a pity as I quite fancied the Seventh Heaven primer. ;)
[Edit: I've just been told by Bridget from Bellabox that the shadow in the photo below is actually a B by Bloom one, so we all got one! And I've seen someone with a Sanctum product, so they definitely sent some out].

Anyhow, let's take a look at what I got in this month's box...I received a total of four samples and a full sized product, plus a little Valentine's Day treat, as listed below:

B by Bloom Collecta duo shadow in Blue Mountain (full sized)

Sasy and Savy citrus hand cream sample (although it says citrus on the card, I somehow received a rose sample)

Sparoma shimmer wrap with jasmine

Star & Rose Confetti soap roses

Bloom organic hand and body wash

2 silver/red chocolate hearts from The Chocolate Box

And the photos:

The February box is themed 'A little bit of love'.

February Bellabox goodies!

I have to say I really did like this box as I'll be using most of the items in there. B by Bloom is the lower priced range offered by Bloom and carried by stores like Target, Kmart and Big W, and the shadows I've tried have been really smooth and pigmented so I'm quite happy to receive this. I'm also quite happy with the colour choice as I'm currently on a colour kick, as you may have gathered from my last post. I don't mind giving the Sparoma shimmer moisturiser a try the next time I head out, and the pump bottle sample is pretty cute. As for the Star & Rose soap rose, it does smell quite lovely, although I think it's also quite fragile as mine is practically falling apart. It'll be fun to play with, though I don't see it as being particularly travel friendly.

I actually already have a sample of the Sasy and Savy hand cream in rose (which I received in my February LHI box), and I would've liked to try the citrus scented version, as I love citrus scents, but I can only conclude that this was a misprint on the card (?). Either way, it's a really good hand cream and the tiny sample will come in handy as I can pop it in a clutch purse the next time I head out. The only item I wasn't as keen on is the Bloom organic hand and body wash. I know some people love it but I am just not a huge fan of the scent, so I'll probably hand this to someone who will appreciate it more. Oh, and the chocolate hearts were delish, I've already eaten one. ;)

VERDICT? I liked this box a lot. While I wasn't completely in love with it, I think it was definitely great value for money. I'm quite keen to try the soap roses and the shimmer wrap, and I know I'll get good use out of the hand cream and the eyeshadow.

What did you think of the February Bellabox? Were you madly in love with what you got or were you a bit disappointed?

Much love,


  1. Fantastic post, lovely photos! I received the same BellaBox and love it! Not tried anything properly yet - busted it open tonight and was happy!! Have been pretty happy each month since signing up a while ago. I think the rose soap is a bit to perfumed for me so I will give that away, else, it all looks fab!!

  2. You are better off than me, I got a tiny 3ml sample of emerginC mask and Sanctum body lotion(which smells yuck) instead of the body wash and shimmer.

  3. Thank you! I know what you mean, it is pretty hard to keep using everything as soon as it arrives!
