Bellabox specialises in a beauty box subscription scheme also known as beauty sampling, which essentially allows you to purchase a box filled with great beauty samples at an affordable rate. Each month’s box contains 5 or more sample-sized products. The selection of items changes every month, with the site offering cosmetics, skincare as well as bath products.
What benefits and savings are there to be made through this service, you may be asking yourself? Well, let's take a closer look at this now.
Unboxing The Details
The Bellabox scheme is pretty flexible and affordable; for $15 you get a selection of 5 or more samples, where delivery is also included. You get the best deal if you subscribe to the annual plan, which involves a monthly fee of $13.75. On top of the savings, the annual plan also comes with an extra box each year. So if you sign up for 12 months plan, Bellabox will throw in the 13th month for free.
Why Bother With Samples?
Beauty sampling is a fantastic way to sample high end products, test out cult classics and be introduced to some exciting new products on the market. It also gives you the chance try out a product without having to commit to purchasing a full-sized item. The cost of a full-sized product can be a disincentive to experimenting with it, but with Bellabox you get the chance to take it on a test run. This way you can make sure that it works for you and only then purchase a full sized item knowing that it is going to be a worthy buy.
Of course there are other ways in which you can sample specific beauty products, for instance some chemists and beauty stores give out freebies or offer samples. However this is usually limited to new releases or a product that the particular store really wants to push. Furthermore you aren’t going to get the same selection and variety that Bellabox offers anywhere else.
Take A Peek Into A Bellabox
If the savings, options and variety haven’t already convinced you perhaps taking a look at the actual thing might help you decide if the Bellbox subscription is something you want to invest in.
July’s Bellabox offered a selection that was choc-a-bloc with cosmetics such as the ModelCo Colourbox Eyepencil, Anastasia Lash Genius Waterproof Top Coat and a lip and cheek palette from the balm. Also in the box was a sample nail lacquer from Nicole by OPI and DermaDoc KP Duty Lotion.
September’s box on the other hand, had a slightly different flavor, offering many skincare options including a sample size Bioderma Sensibio mask and Germaine de Capuccini Excel Therapy O2 Continuous Defence Emulsion. It is worth noting that a full size of the Germaine de Capuccini product would cost you $143 so it is definitely not something at you would be likely to purchase on a whim or to test out. With Bellabox you get to test its’ effectiveness on your skin type before you make the investment in a full sized product.
Tailor Make Your Samples!
Bellabox isn’t just for the ladies; the site also offers options for men and babies through their Bellobox and Bellababy options. In addition to this, you can personalize your box by answering some simple questions about your skincare practices, habits and skin type. This will allow Bellabox to send you products that are targeted to your particular needs and preferences.
The Bellabox experience goes beyond these monthly boxes of pleasure; there is a whole community that you can be a part of. From sharing reviews of products, to picking up tips that will allow you to do your make-up like a pro, the Bellabox Beauty Guide is an excellent platform for all things make-up and skincare related.
