I forgot the last time I bought a beauty box but I could tell that it has been several months already. I love beauty boxes mostly because I know that the value would always be more than what I would pay for – regardless if I like the products I get or not. However, there came a time that I became so overwhelmed with all the products that I got from my past beauty box subscriptions – from BDJ Box and Glamourbox – so I decided to stop for a while. I seriously avoided checking their Facebook pages so that I wouldn’t be tempted to purchase another one anytime soon.
But last Sunday (September 28), for some odd reason, I decided to check the website of Glamourbox. I got curious and I wanted to see the contents of the boxes that they have released in the previous months and there I saw “Special Edition Belo Glamourbox Beauty From Within”. At first, I thought it was the same special edition Belo box that they gave out last February 2014 so I just skipped it and didn’t bother anymore since I already purchased it that time. If you are not aware about the Febraury Special Edition Box, it actually contained several products from Belo Essentials and unfortunately, one of those products – Belo SunExpert Body Shield SPF60 – gave me an allergic reaction. 😦
Anyway, I couldn’t stop thinking about the Special Edition Box that keeps popping on their website so I decided to check its description and I found out that this special box is actually a partnership between Glamourbox and Belo Nutraceuticals – not Belo Essentials. Before this, I had no idea about the kind of products being offered under Belo Nutraceuticals so I checked their Facebook page and learned that they are actually selling products that aim to address skin aging and to brighten skin complexion.
Like I said, I stopped buying beauty boxes because I have so much products at my disposal right now… but this beauty box is different. This is special. I got to have it!!! The first time I tried to purchase the box, it didn’t go through since there were no more stocks available so I bugged Glamourbox several times by sending them messages through Facebook and through text. I even called their landline and mobile numbers to beg them to restock. Lol! Can you guess what happened next? My wish came true. They informed me last Tuesday that they have a few stocks available so I quickly grabbed one. Yey! ^_^
My package arrived early Thursday so those people who saw me that day might have noticed that I was beaming with excitement. Hihi!
Their new box is smaller than their previous box and this one is in brown, for a change. I have to say, I like this one better. I think it looks glamorous.
Why am I so excited to get my hands on this box? It’s because for 2 months now, I have been finding ways to improve myself from within. I’ve been working out, been cutting on rice, sodas, iced tea and junk foods to achieve a better and “healthier” lifestyle and this special edition box will perfectly compliment that goal.
I was only expecting to see 2 products inside the box so it was such a delight to be able to get some other freebies. 🙂
I need these. Papers… papers… and more papers.
According to Belo Nutraceuticals’ Facebook page, “Belo Nutraceuticals Collagen Powder Drink provides remarkable anti-aging benefits that work from within. It is made with high-absorption collagen that provides our skin an abundance of strength, elasticity and resilience. And unlike some collagen drink already available in the market, Belo Nutraceuticals Collagen Powder Drink is infused with Hyaluronic Acid. This increases efficacy, as hyaluronic acid is a moisture magnet that improves skin hydration.”
There are about 5000mg of Marine Collagen found in each sachet so that should be good. The directions say that you can take 1-2 sachets per day. You can mix it with any beverage or you can add it to any soup dishes. I honestly just want to take 1 sachet per day since this product is expensive but I think that I’ll see visible results if I take 2. This means though that my supply will only last for a week so here’s to hoping I’d see some improvements in 7 days. *fingers crossed*
Belo Nutraceuticals Glutathione comes with Collagen which means that this will not only help whiten your skin but will also help improve skin’s elasticity. So they say “Each capsule is infused with 250mg of compacted glutathione that effectively detoxifies as it boosts whitening, and collagen that lifts skin from within as it provides strength, elasticity, and resilience.”
This one should also be taken twice a day, with or without meal. Fortunately for this one, I would be able to enjoy it for 15 days since there are 30 capsules in this bottle. Hooray!
I love this freebie!
Why do I love this special edition box again? It’s because the box only costs Php595 but the total value of these 2 products is Php3032.50. This is my chance to try these products without having to shell out a lot of money for it so it’s definitely soooooooooooooo worth it!
As of this moment, there are no more special edition boxes available but Belo Nutraceuticals is giving a free sample of their Collagen powder drink. They said on their Facebook page that they will give a sample to the first 250 people who will register on their website BUT I can still see the “free sample” link on their site so might as well try registering. Just go to their website and look for the ad that has the “free sample” link. When you click it, it will redirect you to a page where you get to fill up a form with your information. Good luck. 🙂
