February was my first month to get the subscription box Bella Box and I was so excited! Every month there is a theme for the box and this month's was Red Carpet Ready which meant the box would be full of things that would help prepare you for a red carpet... or just make you feel glam. Each box contains at least 5 deluxe samples and it costs $15.00 per month.
Each month there is a sneak peak on Facebook and this month we saw that there would be Burts Bees & Aveda in the boxes. I didn't get either brand in my box but I wasn't too fussed either way. If you haven't read my chatty post from yesterday I plan to do 2 posts per Bella Box. The first is just to show you what I got and how much the box was worth with photos of each product. The second post will contain swatches & reviews and will come a week or so after the first as I will need to test every product.
(Side Note: I wasn't heaps impressed with the way my box was presented, I know it doesn't really matter but I like good presentation. It just looks like it was thrown in there which made my first impression of the box a bad one).
So without further babble I will show you what I got in my box... Enjoy :)

Overall I was pretty happy with the box and the products that I received. As you can see above the box value more than doubles what I paid which is awesome! I don't want to go into the products too deeply as the review post is coming however I am really looking forward to drying the pore refiner and milk cleanser!
