March Bellabox is all about Raw Beauty this month and it's a theme so many of us can appreciate. It seems just about every cosmetic and skin cream on the market these days, boasts a preference for naturally-sourced ingredients. (Hooray!) That's a wonderful thing for those of us who have allergies, sensitivities or a keen drive to protect our bodies and environment. Bring it on!
|Bellabox March - It's all about raw beauty.|
It's always a thrill to unbox a Bellabox each month and discover new brands and products as well as well-loved favourites too. This month's natural theme was certainly a winner with me. I enjoy a good, naturally-based product (or six), regularly in my beauty repertoire. The opportunity to get my hands on some newbies is rather exciting to say the least, when you're into such things. For me, trying out skin treats monthly, is a great way to get some 'me time' into my day too. (Lock that bathroom door and prepare to sail away!)
My first loves in March's Bellabox, are these full size nail colours by Colour by TBN. These gorgeous shades pictured below are Peri Winkle, (a luscious deep violet) and Sweet Dreams XO, (a vivid, musky-pink). Believe it or not, these babies are 100 percent cruelty free. Colour by TBN nail polishes are chip resistant formulations and designed to be fast-drying. There are a myriad of colours to choose from and the price... just RRP $2.95 for a 15ml bottle! Do check out their gorgeous range. Such great value.
Just about everyone considers a facial cleanser an essential each day, so most would be happy to find this trial-sized Amie Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash in their parcel. (Pictured left, above.) This is an extremely gentle creamy cleanser which removes all dirt, oil and makeup without stripping your skin bare. This cleanser has a refreshing and pleasant scent. You can find this product at Priceline and 150ml retails for RRP $7.99. Discover more about this line of botanical skin creations on the Amie website.
Sukin lovers will rejoice at the inclusion of this mega sample-sized Sukin Renewing Body Scrub with Green Tea and Jojoba. This scrub is sulphate and paraben-free, making it very in-line with the whole 'raw beauty' theme this month. With the warmer weather still upon us, keeping your skin prepped for everything from self-tanning products, to improving the performance of your favourite moisturiser, is a priority. This Sukin product is bound to please for both purposes.
Sukin's Renewing Body Scrub contains delicate micro jojoba beads, topped off with a delightful green tea scent. Use this scrub to improve your skin's texture and lift your mood. You can find Sukin products at Priceline and Chemist Warehouse. (Highly recommended!)
Further samples you'll find in this month's Bellabox subscription parcel, include a sample of Palmer's Raw Shea Body Lotion, (an ideal, well-known, all-round moisturising favourite). There's a tube of Bronze by LaMav Gradual Tanning Moisturiser. (Use this post Sukin Scrub for a healthy glow.) There's also an exciting Korean inclusion - Package Everyday Bouncy sheet mask. This is a cute and happy-feeling facial mask designed to restore the bounce to your skin. Korean skin care is so quirky and effective!
Lastly, Swisse's Rose Hip Facial Moisturiser makes an appearance. This product is enriched with rose water and Vitamin C to moisturise and restore skin, and it's packed with a delicate and stunning scent. If you've yet to try a rose hip oil product, make sure you do so soon. Rose hip oil is a stunning and effective beauty addition regardless of your age or skin type.

Mums of young ones will be delighted with this month's Bellababy parcel, which is a special box designed especially for the mama and babe market. I have to say that this March's parcel was a breathtaking package to unbox, and the quality of the inclusions was quite astounding.
As is often the case, the March Bellababy box arrived in its gorgeous, signature yellow polka dot package, packed itself within a satchel bag. The sheer size of this month's inclusions, just didn't fit into the regular box alone. Value!
Amazing scents abound when opening this particular parcel - stunning natural ones, and this March box is very much about babies in particular.
March mum subscribers can expect to receive a stunning designer baby onesie (in a convenient size 1), by Pappe clothing. We've featured this gorgeous and high quality label on the blog previously and you can read up more on our thoughts here. Seriously, how stunning is this timeless polka dot Turkish organic, all-cotton romper for little ones? This very special inclusion is valued at RRP $24.95. Use it on your own child or tuck it away for your next planned arrival or gift it to another. It's just too lovely for words!
Mamas will find a very useful pack of Munchkin Soft Tip Spoons - six in total, valued at RRP $8.99. These essential utensils are coloured, long-handled and feature soft tips with easy-grip handles. The spoons are big enough for preschoolers too. (My daughter loves them at age four!)
|March Bellababy inclusions smell divine!|
Mums love to indulge together with their babes and really, there's no other way to get anything done with the very young than to include them in your space. Bath times are often a shared and relaxing experience with this unique set. Why not indulge together, with this Rustic Bliss White Tea and Ginger bath Milk? (Pictured below.) Seriously, the packaging alone is blissful isn't it?
A good-sized bar of Eleos Skincare Soap is included to enjoy too. This soap is made with extra virgin olive oil and the scent is beautifully gentle and wholly relaxing. Finish off your bathing experience with a spritz of Coast Sydney Botanicals True Collection Natural Perfume. (Pictured in the organza bag above.) The scent is reminiscent of a Balinese paradise with jasmine, nag champa, vanilla, amyris wood and clove bud.
For toddlers, discover Little Munchkins Toddler Super Drink. This special formula is dairy free, gluten free, vegan and organic. There are day and night formulas to try in the March Bellababy edition.
Finally, a tinsy jar of baby Destiny Organic Soothing Barrier Cream will keep little bottoms happy. It's enriched with organic olive oil and Australian lavender oil and assists to reduce redness and soothe itchiness. Be sure to try this out on spots of dry, scaly skin too. The pint-sized pot will carry well in a handbag or pocket and will be invaluable in the coming colder months.
