This month Bellabox have outdone themselves. In fact, there were so many products in this month's offering, they couldn't fit them into the usual little brown and green box:

The theme for this month was Essential Beauty Buys. You can't go wrong with these ten items - and at 15.00 per month it's money very well spent. 
I was in dire need of a new mascara and Almay One Coat Get up and Grow was just what the doctor ordered. I used it this morning and I'm sporting long, feathery, soft and thick lashes. I'd go as far as to say that I'd seek this product out again once this one runs out.
The Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm is also a winner. These wintry months have wreaked havoc on my lips. I'm waking up with a very sore and split top lip but keep forgetting to get some balm for it. Thank goodness someone is thinking for me!
Also in this box was the You, Me & Everybody Shady Lady Daily Face Milk - again, right up my alley: I only wear light, sun protecting facial moisturisers and this one gets my seal of approval. 
Other face savers were Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Night Renewal Cream and Neutrogena Ageless Intensives Deep Wrinkle Eye Cream - I need as many of these creams as I can get, now I'm closer to thirty than twenty! Gasp! I only just realised that then...
The Givenchy Pi Neo fragrance confused me. I wondered what Givenchy were thinking making such a masculine fragrance. I found out it's actually for men. It's not too bad when I put it in that context!
My hair is going to thank me for the Primaria Bath of Life Shampoo and Nourishing Silk Mask treatments. I'm now in a routine of doing a hair treatment once a week (all of us blow-wavers and straighteners out there should) and I love the way it makes my strands look and feel. 
Last but not least, a very fashionable Mulberry nail varnish from Ulta3. Everyone needs a dark, plummy polish for their fingers and toes. 
My concluding remarks: Bellabox thought long and hard and came up with some utterly essential products that will please most of their subscribers. Not a single one of these items will be left unused: this month's box is truly value for money.
