May 2012 Bellabox Review - Pamper Yourself, Pamper Mum


The time has come once again to share my Bellabox review. 
Most months I have been blogging my Bellabox and Glossybox reviews but I have cancelled my sub to Glossybox mainly due to a really poor box in April.
  Bellabox did not disappoint this month, I was actually really happy with what they sent me! Anyhoo let's get into shall we?

This months theme was 'Pamper Yourself, Pamper Your Mum', sorry mum but I'm keeping my items for this month :P

First item is EmerginC Hydra Repair Capsules which are meant to help hydrate the skin and assist in maintaining even texture. I cracked open one of the little capsules and I was very worried it would be too oily on my skin, however it wasn't too greasy and it absorbed well into my skin.
I haven't used it for an extended period of time but I liked how smooth it was after one use.
I think this will be a nifty product to hydration in the winter months.

Next was the Savior Fair Lipstick in the colour 'Opulence', it is a very crimson - vampiresk colour but used lightly it doesn't look too bad on my skintone - definitely a night-time/dramatic look.
The think I loved about this lippy was the scent and how smooth and lovely it felt on my lips like a lip butter! Yum.


Avene Eau Thermale Emulsion Moisuriser and Eye Contour Cream - Both these products boast anti-aging properties so they are probably more aimed at the mums for this month's theme. However I am looking forward to using the eye cream as it is something I have been thinking of starting to use as a preventative product.

Sebastian Penetrait Shampoo and Conditioner - As pictured I haven't opened these up yet but I really like this sample and can't wait to try these out!

My gosh, I was so excited to see a Bobbi Brown sample for this month. Here we have a Bobbi Brown Lash Glamour Extreme Lengthening Mini Mascara. I have been using this every few days and it is lovely, good bristles and easy to apply. To my shock I even got a compliment from the boy about how long my eyelashes looked (and he doesn't usually notice anything!)


Overall Thoughts - I was super happy with the May Bellabox, it has samples that I actually want to use and will definitely consider for repurchase. My fave item is by far the Bobbi Brown mascara and I hope Bellabox will include more big brand items in the future. The only downside to this month is that I would have loved a more everyday shade for the lipstick, but it is only a very small negative. I can't wait to see what I get next month!
