Bella Box recently introduced Bellababy, a box of 8 products for mummies and babies.
A departure from the brand’s usual pink boxes, this one is beige in colour and has a charming illustration of an elephant and her calf.
The package itself is tied up with a golden ribbon that complements the colour of the box.
In my press box are:
- Audrey Christian Push Up Breast, Neck & Tummy Cream (150 ml)
- Baby Buds Mozzie Clear Lotion (10 ml)
- Baby Buds Infant Cream (3 ml)
- Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum (10 ml)
- EPloof! Wooden Crocodile Toy
- Lierac Morpho-Slim Anti-Cellulite Concentrate (15 ml)
- Mustela No Rinse Cleansing Fluid for Face & Diaper Area (50 ml)
- Mustela Vitamin Barrier Cream (10 ml) + 8 3 ml sachets of assorted Mustela products
- Twistband in a strawberry pink
At S$39.95, this box is double the price of the regular Bella Boxes. The beauty brands overlap with those of the usual boxes, which is fine if you don’t already subscribe to them (the useful Twistband is always a welcome item, though I’ve seen it appear more than once). The quantity of the products is pretty satisfactory and the full-sized cream for mummy does make the box seem worth the price. My tube was manufactured last year, so no issues here re: shelf life.
I do appreciate the Mustela wash – not only is it a good size, Mustela is an awesome baby brand too, so I was thrilled to see it inside. I would’ve liked to see bigger Baby Buds samples, though – this niche brand makes some lovely products and it would’ve been nice to try something more substantial. Nonetheless, these samples are a good way for me to further explore the brand (I haven’t tried either product).
I was the most curious about the toy but it was somewhat disappointing. Its accompanying tag says that it’s made of hinoki wood (cedar wood) that gives off a fragrance when wet, so I’m guessing it’s suitable for bath time play. It has a nice concept too – it’s part of a zoo set that is apparently stackable. However, it really is just a tiny block of wood (albeit well-made) and you would need to buy the other animals to complete the set…I’d expected a proper stand-alone toy. What’s more, it isn’t even suitable for babies – it’s actually for children 2 years and above. It’d be nice for a toddler-sibling, though. I’d recommend a wrist rattle or a small scrunchy bath book for future Bellababy boxes. :)
I’m not sure if I’d splurge on one based on this inaugural box but I do admit that this is a great idea for families who would like to try more baby brands. I’m curious about the contents of future Bellababy boxes and look forward to seeing new brands in them.
