bellabox: June 2016 Unboxing/Review

Hai friends!

Guess what arrived!? My June bellabox! If you have me on snapchat (bymeneka) then you would have seen me unbox this baby liiive! And if you missed it – just keep reading.

With June being the first month of winter, this month’s theme was “Winter Switch”. Even before opening the box, I predicted that this box would be full of skin care because Winter dries out the skin like crazy!

I loved this month’s box! There were no coloured complexion products or any flimsy sachets that would never get used. All the brands included are of top quality and are things I will actually use!

So what’s in the box?


  • YOUR TEA SKIN MAGIC TEA || 9 tea bags ($5.25 equivalent)
    [Full Size: 60 pack RRP $35]
    This tea is meant to aid digestion and clear acne, hormonal skin and eczema. Having never tried any of these teas in the past, I’m keen to give this one a test run!
  • NEUTROGENA HYDRO BOOST WATER GEL || 5g ($2.50 equivalent)
    [Full Size: 50g RRP $24.99]
    I really like the Neutrogena Hydro Boost range! Their face masks are a hit and they are really hydrating and this water gel was great too! It wasn’t as hydrating as the face masks (duh) but my skin absorbed it straight away and it doesn’t leave any shiny, oily residue.
  • DERMAL THERAPY LIP BALM || [received Full Size 10g, RRP $4.95]
    I haven’t stopped using this since I got it. It smells kind of sweet and is so so moisturising. It has a minty, refreshingly smoothing and stinging feeling which is great for healing dry and chapped lips – especially in Winter!
  • MIZON SOOTHING MASK || [received Full Size 25ml, RRP $4.00]
    After doing some research, I found that Mizon is a cult favourite Korean brand who have some really cool products! This mask is for sensitive skin and calms and soothes.
  • CETAPHIL GENTLE SKIN CLEANSING WIPES || [received Full Size 25 pack, $7.50]
    I love Cetaphil cleanser and moisturiser so it was no doubt that I would love the cleansing wipes! They are so gentle on the skin.
  • MAGNETIX NAIL POLISH || [received full size, RRP $14.95]
    These nail polishes have a magnetic particle formula that allows you to make designs on your nails using the magnet provided. I received a sparkly gold colour which I’d use as an accent nail.
  • BONUS: COLGATE OPTIC WHITE HIGH IMPACT WHITE || 21g ($3.70 equivalent)
    [Full Size: $14.95]
    Although it tastes weird, it does have an effect. I drink tea and coffee like my life depends on it (which, some mornings, is true) and am so thankful for this toothpaste.

TOTAL VALUE OF BOX: $42.85 which great value considering a single box is $15/month (+$2.95 postage and handling) or sign up for an annual subscription which works out to be $13.75/month (+ $2.91 postage and handling).

Overall, I was very pleased with this box. I was glad that there were no complexion products and that all the products seemed to go with the Winter Switch theme!

What’s your MUST HAVE product for winter?
