Did you receive a Little Alchemist product in your January box? Did you love it? I really like their products and we have added some more to the store this week. My pick is the Wild Apple and Mint Antioxidant Balancing Mist. There have been some seriously hot days here in Melbourne and I love the refreshing smell of this product.
We have also added Nuxe Heuile Prodigieuse 100mls into the store, you bella beauties love it as much as we do and they are flying off our virtual shelves. I hate to say it, but I told you so!
Trying Pure Fiji
One of our favourite brands, Pure Fiji, have launched their gorgeous skin care range and as expected, it smells absolutely divine! I met up with Daniel, the MD of Pure Fiji this week and he gave me one of the Hydrating day Crèmes to try. The texture of the product is quite firm, but it sinks into the skin beautifully and left my skin smelling so good, I would lick my own face I could.
Customising your boxes
When you join bellabox, you are invited to fill in a beauty profile asking your skin concerns, hair and skin colour as well as other little tidbits of information. We use this data to make sure you receive the products that are suitable for you. While it is not an exact science and we can’t always get it right, we do our best to allocate the samples we have secured to those that are interested in, or suited to that product. We are the only sample box that does this, and while it is logistically challenging, we feel it is important for you to receive samples that are suited to you and will actually use! From our brand partner’s perspective, it is also important to them that their samples make it to their target market.
Soon we are improving our ability to customise your boxes even further. Over the coming months, you will start to see more box variations as we dig deeper into your beauty profile. At this stage we can’t fully customise, but our goal is to always improve the offering to our members. Please do keep in mind that bellabox is about beauty discovery, and there will be times you receive a product you might not normally purchase, but that’s the whole point of beauty discovery; challenging you to try new products and perhaps rediscover old fave brands. Sometimes, you might think a product is not suited to you, but trust us and give it a go! Even if a nail polish shade isn't right up your ally, paint it on. You might love the wide brush that only needs a couple of strokes per nail and can keep an eye out for another shade you might like from the same brand. Same goes for a fragrance you haven't tried before. It might not replace your regular staple scent, but it could become your favourite party perfume instead! Skincare? It's a good idea to switch it up every now and then, so that your skin doesn't become too accustomed to one product and not benefit from the intended results. Shampoo? Different brands offer different benefits, so sometimes it's worth comparing. The point is: give it a shot and you might end up falling in love with it! Alos, stay tuned for our updated beauty profile selections, coming very soon!
