I have to do a disclaimer first. I only start subscribing to Bella Box from November 2011 onward so I do not have any boxes earlier than that.
Bella Boxes value feedback (or complaints) and improve on them. Actually the size of the boxes doesn’t really matter to me. I am more particular in the content of the boxes but I can see the effort and improvement to make Bella Box a better box. I do like smaller boxes as It is easier to store them. 🙂
The box is much more smaller. It seems to drop a size smaller.
More details of the difference in size
The new box is also less thicker
Comparison of the inner boxes.
I have to say I do like the big outer box but it is because I used it to store my more cosmetic. However, I guess if I have too many of the old boxes, I would also find them bulky and useless. Therefore, I welcome the idea of saving the world with smaller box and lesser crinkled paper that is used cushion the products. I must say that the inner box is really of a better quality than old version. The texture is must smoother and not glossy. (I dun like glossy surface boxes) As for the design of the boxes, I love the simple and elegant design of the new boxes, the older design has more words on the outer box and stripe patterns on the inner box.

Today post shall only be about what is in the January Bella Box. There are some feedback from some customer that the boxes are big, bulky and not environmental friendly. Bella Box team really value these feedback and this month boxes was significantly smaller and more environmental friendly. I shall do a comparison in my blog post tomorrow.
Showcasing the bella box for this month
The introduction of this month beauty box~
The outer box is still pink but the inside box had a simple design with only BB logo. The quality of the inner box seems better too. The surface is smooth and classy. Since the outer box is smaller, the inner box is also smaller. But smaller doesn’t mean lesser item. They still give 5 sample items to try but initially I did get a shock because when I open the box, I saw 3 items only because they wrapped 3 item in another pink wrapper.
After un-tapping, belif product pamphlet…
More details of the belif product pamplet…
Tata~ The products in the January box…
Eh… How come only 3 items?
Tada~ You need to unwrap the pink wrapper~
Detail product of the box as shown below (Left to right; top to down):
1. Dr Jart Detox Healing Blemish Balm (SPF25 PA++) 15ml
2. Herban Essentials Lemon Towelette
3. Dr Dennis Gross Skincare Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel Patented Two-Step Anti Aging Treatment
4. Pangea Organics Lip Balm (Grapefruit and Sweet Orange)
5. Belif Hydra Sebum Control Essence
This month product is not as worth as the December’s box. I can’t believe that they include one Towelette in this package, I have yet to try it but I don’t think Towelette has anything to do with beauty. I might not appreciate this item well because I think it is not suitable to be in this box. Maybe they just include as an additional item will be better.
However, I am quite happy with Dr Jart’s BB cream as I have been wanting to try them for ages. The rest of the item seems quite alright for this box and I will review the items soon. I do hope that there can at least be one cosmetic item in every month’s box.
