For about… almost… 6 months(?) I’m finally back to being a Bellabox member again!! Why suddenly subscribed again?? Because I rec’d an email fr Bellabox saying that “subscribe now and received FREE $125 gift box”!!(although I have not rec’d’s my $125 box!!)
So for now, lets take a look at my August Bellabox….
Quite an impressive box! Let’s check out the items now….
It’s ModelCo’s Cheek & Lips tint! This tint is a lightweight, dual purpose cheek and lip tint that delivers a natural, rosy glow. The long-lasting gel formulation glides on smoothly, leaving the perfect amount of sheer colour for just-flushed cheeks and a lightly stained lip.
This tint is ideal for that “no makeup” look with a subtle hint of colour.
It is a very sexy red color you see here! Reminds mi of vampire bites! But trust me, it really will eventually turn light rosy pink when u apply them..
See.. The color get absorbs in quite fast actually.. It leaves a mark on the area where I first leave it on while snapping some pics! I swear I spent less than a min taking pic! Did I also mention, this tint smell kinda sweet too.. Hee.. I guess tint are no more that scary when they were first introduced… My first lip tint from Tony Moly scares me quite a bit (the scent)..
Next item that caught my attention is this hand cream! It’s not the brand that caught my attention, it’s the box!!! I thought I squashed it but when I trying to push it back to its ‘original’ form I then realize(!!!) the box is slanted by nature…!!!(CHEY!!)
I did not squashed it!!! hahahaha!! Unique box indeed!
This is the Oriental Rose with Coenzyme Q10 hand cream from Harnn! Rich and mesmerizing Chinese Rose essential oils is enhanced with Nano seaweed extract to help stimulate Collagen and Elastin production for younger looking skin with powerful antioxidant properties to reduce signs of aging. With Organic Rose Water, Shea Butter, and Coenzyme Q10 in rich balm formulation keep hand hydrated and softened while strengthening your nails.
another thing i like (and don’t like too) is the safety seal.. freshness guaranteed! but.. i cant test a bit on my hand.. (T_T) But i guess it’s ok..
So now, after caring for your hand, lets take a look at what’s for your lips!!
Swiss Rituel Fruity Protective lip Balm!! It smells very sweet even without mi unwrapping the wrapper! It contains moisturizing active ingredients that will condition your lips and prevent fine lines and wrinkles through Vitamin E – all these while exuding a fresh scent of fruity grape!
Use this with care because they are pretty soft. Don’t turn the lip stick all out to apply! You’ll break it… In fact I broke mine (previous stick).. But still usable, just have to be extra gentle now.. LOLX!
Now that u have a moisten lips.. Time for inner beauty!
Tea bags!! To be exact, they are beauty tea bags (called Teaism) from My Life Inc!
After water, tea is the most popular beverage in the world. It is thought that tea was first discovered during the Shang dynasty in China, from 1600 BC to 1046 BC. Then with the trade routes in the 17th century, it traveled the world. And now it’s a worldwide phenomenon.
As we know, there is nothing like having a hot cup of tea to send your worries away. And sipping tea doesn’t only feel good, it is good—for your body. Studies have shown that chamomile can work as a antimicrobial and can help prevent blood clots, and that peppermint tea is a warrior in the fight against bacteria, allergies and viruses, and has plenty of antioxidants.
TEAISM knows all about this. As a product of Eu Yan Sang, TEAISM combines heritage and innovation to deliver the most fragrant brew. TEAISM also believes that while life should be spent drinking delicious, all-natural, healthy teas, it should not be spent fussing with tea bags. Instead, TEAISM teas come in pencil-shaped, disposable, high-tech tea wands, eliminating the need for bags or teaspoons, because who has time for those? Each disposable wand contains high-grade tea leaves and is made of FDA-approved aluminum foil. It’s the most convenient way to achieve the same taste you would derive from high quality loose leaf teas. The future is here, and it’s nothing to be afraid of.
TEAISM is three things: healthy, functional, convenient. And many flavors: comfort, restore, protect, balance, energize. And many benefits: relieving nausea and dizziness, helping digestion and lowering flatulence, easing chronic pain, muscle aches and rheumatoid arthritis, anti-inflammatory, minimizes symptoms of common colds and allergies, improving overall immunity.
We’re all busy but we’re never too busy for tea—TEAISM makes sure of that. Just add hot water, stir and enjoy.
See, just this simple! Tea done and it taste good! Not those strong brew kind like Pu Er/Tie Guan Ying but still its nice cuppa tea! BTW, this tea bag is “ENERGIZE: FANCY BLACK TEA” (orange tip bag).. It’s slight bitter and astringent taste, accompanied with a light roasted tea scent! Fancy black tea helps detoxification and gives u energy. It’s 100% black tea and contain caffeine..
The other bag that i have got is “RESTORE: OSMANTHUS OOLONG TEA” (pink tip bag). A tender fragrance and feel-good sensation—that’s what we get from this osmanthus flower and oolong tea infusion. Fragrant sweet scent that provokes your senses. Mild sweetness of osmanthus flowers and earthy taste of oolong tea combine together for a refreshing tea treat! I like it’s benefits! Antioxidant & Anti-aging!! It contains Oolong Tea, Osmanthus, Natural Flavor & caffeine.
So if you are allergy to caffeine.. i guess you;ll have to skip these..
