You might have guessed this already, but working at bellabox is kind of incredible. Our shelves are overflowing with beauty samples, and if you’re ever in need of some kind of skincare product you’ll probably find it in our stock room.
At some stage during the month, every single product from that month’s box passes through my desk. I try it out, take photos of it, and write about it for the bellabox website. But sometimes I have people circling my desk just waiting for me to finish with certain products so that they can have their own little play!
This is what’s trending at bellabox right now – the products that left my desk almost as soon as they landed. These were all sampled in some of our September bellaboxes.
Gliders Soft Ties
Oh my god I cannot get enough of these hair ties. We are all obsessed with them. They are a soft fabric hair tie, so they don’t pull at your hair. They’re also great for dressing up a quick messy hair style, tying your hair up for the gym or finishing off a cute braid or bun. Basically everyone at bellabox has been sporting one of these in their hair lately, and I don’t have a single packet left on my desk!
Now that the weather is a little warmer, we’ve started seeing more bare legs and arms in the bellabox office! This means that we need smooth skin. The product everyone wants to use is the iNature Skincare Calendula Hydrate, and I just happen to have a bottle on my desk. Every time I look up another bb staffer is dropping by to moisturise her arms or legs. It absorbs really easily, so we don’t feel sticky in the office.
I already highlighted this last week in my skincare splurges article, but everyone wants to try the Excel Therapy O2 Continuous Defense Essential Youthfulness Emulsion. You see, we are crazy for anti-ageing products in the bb office and we must scare all our interns by telling them you’re never too young to get serious about skincare! But it’s true, and everyone has been searching for samples of this hard working product. You can read more about it here.
Fake tan is something that we will never get sick of, and we’re always on the lookout for really interesting advances in this area and new formulations. Salon Tan’s products actually combine skincare and self tanner, so you’re looking after your skin while you tan. Their Face Lotion contains botanicals known to combat the signs of early ageing – and since I’ve already told you how obsessed we are with anti-ageing it’s no surprise that we’re all trying to get our hands on this!

1000 Hour Lashes
I found this pack of lashes hidden away in the stock room! I think lashes are the perfect way to set off your makeup on a big night out, and you can go for a really natural set or something with more of a wow factor. 1000 Hour has something for everyone in their range, which is available in Priceline.
Bioderma Sensibio Mask
We love Bioderma at bellabox, so whenever we get the chance to sample their products in our box we will never refuse. Some of you may have received the Sensibio Mask, and I tried it out last week. I thought it was so hydrating and made my skin feel really soft. After hearing me rave about it everyone wants to try it, and I found it sitting in the finance section! Enjoy ladies, it’s amazing.
