Winter is finally over and spring has begun. With the change of season, Bellabox has released a new Welcome to Wellness Box. I was sent this to try and from the previous two boxes, I know it’s a good one.
As per the other boxes, the Welcome to Wellness box has a mix of food, beauty and lifestyle products. I really like the quote under the box lid and it’s something we need to be reminded of.
I’ll start off with the food items first:
Carman’s Limited Edition Tin Granola (full size but not available to purchase)
The biggest item in the box is this tin full of granola. It says that it is a special treat for the NZ bellas and it is currently not available for purchase. It is such a nice and sleek tin for your cereal or granola so it’s great to have. I haven’t tried this yet but it’s vanilla, almond and cinnamon so I think I’d really like it.
Shelby’s Dipped & Dusted Almonds (full size but not available for purchase), Blue Dinosaur Paleo Bar ($4.99NZ) and Gutsy Probiotic Drink sachets (sample sizes)
I love chocolate covered almonds and these are covered in dark chocolate so I know this would be such a great snack for me. This is another special treat for NZ bellas and is not currently available for purchase.
The paleo bar is lamington flavoured which sounds great but it’s a healthier snack as it’s made from raw organic cacao, vanilla bean, dates and coconut.
I haven’t tried mixing probiotic with my drinks as I don’t also have pre-workout or protein powders etc. However this is meant to aid for digestion which can be quite handy. I think I’ll give the lemon lime one a go.
Lean Blend Superfood Latte (sample)
This had such cute packaging! I love the branding and it sounds really interesting. I haven’t tried this yet but it is meant to be a healthier alternative to coffee. It is a vegan protein powder that is dairy free, gluten free and sugar free. It sounds perfect for the health nuts out there!
Bellabox Reusable Straw
Lastly in the food-related item in the box is a gold metal straw which is super handy.
Moving on to beauty products:
There’s a good variety in this box that covers makeup, skincare, nails and body.
Manna Kadar Bloom Mascara – $29USD (full size)
I have received this mascara inside one of the monthly Bellaboxes too but because I have a lot of spares, I still haven’t tried it. It’s meant to be great for volume though so I’m looking forward to trying this out.
Kadee Botanicals Eye Cream (full size) – $84.36NZ and Revitanail Conditioning Nail Polish Remover Wipes (full size) – $7.99
I haven’t heard of the brand Kadee before but it’s an Australian vegan, cruelty-free and toxin-free brand. It’s clean beauty made with potent Australian plants with no artificial fragrances, colours, parabens, sulphates and petrochemicals. I’m always up for trying new eye creams so I will definitely be using this.
The Revitanail nail polish remover wipes will be so handy for me as I hate taking nail polish off. The main reason I rarely paint my nails now is because they chip after a few days and I cannot be bothered taking them off. This is acetone-free and is supposed to be moisturising.
Manicare Sensiscrub Wet Body Brush – $18.99 and Jurlique Moisture Plus Rare Rose Lotion (sample)
I am actually pretty excited to use the wet body brush to exfoliate in the shower. I currently use exfoliating gloves but I want to see the difference between that and a body brush. A few weeks ago I attended a Jurlique event where they talked about the new rare rose range. We got to try it and it smells amazing and it feels so nice on the skin.
Ettitude Five More Minutes Sleep Mask – $25AUD
I like wearing eye masks when I go to bed because I have cats and I do leave my bedroom door slightly open for them to go in and out during the night and they don’t wake me up. I currently use a silk eye mask which is super nice but this bamboo one would be great too. It’s also vegan and ethically produced from 100% organic bamboo lyocell.
Koala Eco Multi-purpose kitchen cleaner
The last thing on this box is a kitchen cleaner which I didn’t expect at all. This is another treat to NZ Bellas as it’s not available for purchase. It’s a decent sample and I’ll definitely be using this to clean my kitchen bench. It’s eco-friendly, 100% biodegradable and the formula is derived from plants. It sounds great.
That’s all for the Spring release of the Welcome to Wellness Box. You can buy this box for $59.95 and the products are worth up to $200. There is also an option to buy two seasonal boxes for $57.95 per box of four seasonal boxes for $49.95 per box. Overall, I think these boxes are pretty good value.
I did get sent this box but I actually so grateful for Bellabox as I’ve discovered great brands and products through their monthly Bellaboxes and the seasonal boxes. It’s a great way to discover new brands and products you wouldn’t usually try.
