Our September Beauty Wardrobe bellabox was curated by GRITTYpretty's Eleanor Pendleton. We had such a great time working with Eleanor, and her beauty expertise was very much appreciated! Eleanor was the Beauty Editor at InStyle and FAMOUS, and she has also been published in magazines such as Harper’s BAZAAR Australia, Men’s Health and Cosmopolitan Bride. We asked Eleanor for her thoughts on her favourite products from the box.

Pureology Precious Oil Masque
"I remember fondly when this brand launched into Australia. Since then, I’ve been a fan. This mask treats my balayage-coloured hair without weighing it down. It leaves my strands feeling silky and very, very soft."
Pureology Colour Fanatic Spray
"Extend the life of your hair colour with a multi-tasking nourishing hair spray. This one, which is 100% vegan, detangles, moisturises, smoothes and helps prevent split ends. A real all-rounder."
Pureology Pure Volume Blow Dry Amplifier "I have naturally straight, fine hair so I try to put as much volume into my roots as possible. This volumising gel, when applied to wet hair, noticeably increases body and bounce. The fragrance is addictive too!"
TRESemme Liquid Gold
"I watched this golden boy being used backstage at New York Fashion Week and it was easy to see why it was so popular amongst hairstylists. Used on the ends of strands – wet or dry – this elixir helps reduce frizz and boost shine."
TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe PREP Heat Protection Mist "If anyone knows the damage caused by electrical hair tools, it’s beauty editors. Anytime I blow-dry, straighten or curl my hair, I always use a heat protector. Consider it sunscreen but for your hair. I’m always travelling so this mini size is ideal."
Neutrogena Make-Up Remover Cleansing Towelettes "Perfect for removing highly-pigmented lipstick, these wipes leave no excuse for forgetting to remove makeup."
Bioderma Sensibio Mask "I was lucky enough to travel to France and see where Bioderma is made. I’ve been a huge fan of their Sensibio H20 and now I can’t get enough of this soothing mask as well. It’s incredibly hydrating and soothing for all skin types."
iNature Skincare Calendula Hydrate
"At first, this moisturiser appears go onto the skin quite thickly. However, after massaging it into the skin, it disappeared and felt cooling on my complexion. While it did leave a sticky finish afterwards, it was the natural fragrance that won me over."
Revlon Age Defying Night Cream "Generally, night creams are luxurious and rich. This formula Revlon is but doesn’t leave skin feeling like it can’t breathe. After 8 hours of sleep, you’ll wake up to skin that looks noticeably hydrated."
Cedel Coconut Bay Hairspray
"If you want your hair to hold (and smell like a tropical holiday at the same time), this super hold hairspray is for you. The convenient can also means it doesn’t hog up too much bathroom or handbag space."
