Bellabox Singapore: JANUARY 2014 CNY BEAUTY PACKET


Hi everyone! I have an unboxing post for you today. I just got this baby last night and I thought that since I haven’t been blogging that much lately, at least try to put up my unboxing post on time. And so, here it is!


And oh! I just would like to mention that it was my husband who opened this box last night. It's crazy! But you know what? He looked so cute while opening this box and checking each item, haha. 

Anyway, This month’s box is themed after Chinese New Year and Bellabox called it “Chinese New Year Beauty Packet”. And with just that title alone I was already expecting some great stuff in my loot and good thing Bellabox didn’t disappoint.

So! First two items on the list are these (original) shampoo and conditioner from Mane N’ Tail. The full sizes of these (355ml) retail for S$14.90.


Widely loved by celebrities and the public alike, this iconic formulation is created with an exclusive micro-enriched formula that fortifies the hair shaft and prevents breakage and split ends, leading to longer, stronger, fuller and frizz-free hair!

MY THOUGHTS: I’ve known this brand since high school and I’ve heard nothing but good things about it. Now, my hair issue has always been hair-fall, so I’m hoping that these two products can help me on that area. I noticed that it doesn’t have that perfume-ish scent that other typical shampoos and conditioners have but it really smells clean which I think is very nice. Aso, the sample bottles I got both came with 60ml (2 fl. oz) of product inside, how awesome is that! I think I really could tell after using this if I would buy the full size or not. I’m really excited!

Next up is this Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S. Morning Eye Rescue which retails at S$40 for 15ml. And I got a 7ml sample, a really good size for a sample, don’t you think?


Find yourself waking up in the morning with puffy tired-looking eyes? This gentle eye cream hydrates, de-puffs and contains anti-oxidant rich grape Polyphenols to combat against premature wrinkles. Ideal for sensitive skin.

MY THOUGHTS: Well, well, well! How can I not like an eye cream? Eye creams always do wonders to my eye area however they're pretty expensive. Good thing, I got a sample eye cream this month and it’s from Caudalie, so how can I complain?! Caudalie is a really great brand. I’m just so thankful that I got this in my loot this month. Since I’ve been subscribed to a beauty box, I’ve never been without an eye cream and I’m just so grateful.

Moving on, I have a sample perfume here called Tous Rosa EDP which retails for S$69 and S$119 for 30ml and 90ml respectively.


Blended with a musky floral scent of rose absolute, violet and raspberry notes, Tous Rosa EDP is created with the sole purpose of inspiring happiness and fashioning each womn’s drem world. Delicately and specially concocted for the brand’s co-founder and creative director, Rosa Oriol, this is the latest and most personal scent of Tous.

MY THOUGHTS: I’m not really good at describing scents so let’s just agree with this product’s description, haha. But seriously, it really smells wonderful. Floral and girly I should say but I don’t think I’d be purchasing any perfume anytime soon coz I received some new bottles as gifts last month. So…yeah!

Another item I’m so excited to try is this LANEIGE Snow BB Soothing Cushion, although I’m not so sure how much coverage I’m gonna get with this sample which contains 0.1 oz of product inside. Its full size (2 sets of 15gs), by the way, costs S$59.


Head out in the morning and come home at the end of the day still fresh-faced and flawless with this unique cushion-type BB cream. Available in a compact that uses a cushion and puff for skin – friendly and easy application, this BB liquid formulation contains 5 in 1 benefits – it brightens, contains SPF 50 PA+++, cools, tones and is long-lasting with sweat-proof technology!

MY THOUGHTS: Every time I’d pass by a Laneige stall in the mall, I could only think of one thing, “I wonder how good their BB cushion is…” But I can’t get myself to purchase one at the moment because I still have like two or three unopened BB creams and  I think it’s impractical for me to buy a new BB cream just for the sake of trying it. Don’t I have a point? I’m glad to have received this sample and I’m already thinking when I should use it.

Second to the last on my list is this ESLOR Introductory Collection.


Treat yourself to this true-blue comprehensive and naturally based skincare treatment! Start by refining and cleansing your skin, followed by a re-energizing scrub. Refresh with a comforting mask and finish off with a soothing cream. A complete course of comfort food for the skin!

MY THOUGHTS: Hmmm… a set of skincare goodies. While I appreciate the thought, I’m not sure I’m that interested in trying any new set of skincare items at the moment because my skin has just gotten back up and is in the process of recovering from a terrible breakout. And I think that whatever skincare products I’m currently using could be the culprit behind my skin’s recovery. So, no matter how tempting these products look, I might park them for the meantime.

And last but certainly not least, I received a bonus item and that is this Home Secrets Shaping Smoothie in Peach flavor, which retails at S$11.90 for a pack of 5.


Curb your hunger pangs without depriving your taste buds! Delectably blended with 100% natural fruit pulps and juices from Lemon/Peach, this delightful drink is enriched with fiber-dense Konjac and Basil Seeds.

MY THOUGHTS: Interesting! You know what? I gained weight during the holiday season and can this be the sign that I should seriously go on a diet? And wait! Don’t tell me I’m the only one who forgot to observe her figure during the holiday season? Let’s all be honest here, okay? Hahaha.

Anyway, those are all the items I got in my box for this month. If any of you are from Australia or Singapore, you can check Bellabox websites below especially if you found any of the above-mentioned items interesting:
