It’s summer time once again and I’m betting that thousands of people are now flocking to the beach to beat the heat. I, for one, would love to visit my beloved Boracay again but I’m not yet physically and financially ready for it. Lol!
Recently, Glamourbox announced that they will be having another special edition Belo box with the theme “Beauty and the Beach”. I knew right there and then that whatever products they include in the box will be very useful for the summer season. It doesn’t take much to realize that this will be a good buy especially if one is thinking of going to the beach. Having said this, I still didn’t avail the subscription at the time of their launch because I needed to know what’s inside the box first. Glamourbox doesn’t really like to withhold information about the contents of their beauty boxes because they don’t want to spoil the surprise but I’m a special case – I had an allergic reaction to 2 (two) of Belo’s sunblock lotions so it was really important for me to know if those 2 products are included in the box or not.
Last year, I availed a special edition beauty box from Glamourbox that had a Belo SunExpert Body Shield SPF60 and a Belo SunExpert Transparent Mist SPF50. Both sunblock lotions caused me to have rashes all over my body. Thankfully so, Glamourbox informed me that those 2 sunblock lotions are not included in their Beauty and the Beach beauty box. Yey!
Luckily, Glamourbox still has some boxes left so I was able to grab one right after the first batch of orders were delivered. I was filled with excitement the moment the box was handed to me by the village guards. It was quite heavy so I knew that I’d see full size products inside. ^_^
Aaahhhh yes! All full size products. I didn’t even have to check the curator card to know that the value of the products is more than the subscription price (Php595).
This is their newest product in their SunExpert line in the form of a spray. They said it’s their first ever kid-friendly product. It’s strong enough for adults and gentle enough for the kids. I actually have this product already – I got one from Sample Room recently. To be honest, I was a bit hesitant to try this because I was afraid to get an allergic reaction again but I’m very happy to say that when I tried it on one arm, I didn’t get any rashes at all. I haven’t tried applying this all over my body yet even though the patch test was a success because somehow, I still feel worried. I think I’m still a bit traumatized. One day, I shall try applying it all over my body and if it’s good, then I’m glad I have 2 full size products at my disposal. 🙂
Belo’s Sun Expert Face Cover is a clinically-formulated light and non-sticky sunscreen that contains Cell Protect formula that helps prevent premature skin-aging and strengthens the skin’s defense system against age-accelerating UV rays. I have already tried this product last year and unlike the Body Shield and the Transparent Mist, this one actually worked great on me. I used it when I went to the beach and it really protected my skin against harmful UV rays. If I remember correctly, my face didn’t darken despite being under too much sun exposure. Bravo!
Belo Essentials Deo Spray is a 48-hour anti-perspirant & deodorant that can whiten your underarm in as fast as 7 days and they say that it can also help control darkening even before it starts. I don’t know if this is effective or not since I don’t really use deodorants but I have to say that the scent is really refreshing.
Belo Essentials Underarm Whitening Cream claims to whiten underarm at the cellular level with Alpha Arbutinand HydroxyphenoxyPropionicAcid in as fast as 14 days. What’s interesting about this product is that they say it can also be used on inner thighs, elbows, knees and areolas. If you intend to use it solely on your underarms, they suggest to use the Underarm Whitening Cream at night and use the Whitening Anti-Perspirant Deodorant every morning to achieve best results.
This cream whitens skin with the help of Kojic Acid and Tranexamic Acids. It’s a whitening cream that comes with SPF30 already so you no longer have to apply another product to protect your skin from the sun. I have already tried this product courtesy of Sample Room and what I like about it is that it gets easily absorbed into the skin and it doesn’t leave a greasy feel. I did, however, stop using it this week since I’m not sure if it was the one that caused me to have some breakouts. For this reason, I won’t be able to tell how effective it is in whitening the skin.
Just like the face and neck cream, this body cream also whitens the body with Kojic Acid and Tranexamic Acids. It also comes with SPF 30. And just like the other product, I have also received the same sample from Sample Room so I have had the privilege of using this body cream for more than 2 weeks already. I don’t think that it has whiten my skin yet but I do like that it has somehow kept my skin hydrated. This is a big deal for me since the only lotion that has worked on my sensitive skin is Jergen’s Ultra Healing Body Lotion. The mere fact that my skin is able to handle a whitening body cream without leaving my skin dry means that I can continue using this Belo Intensive Whitening Body Cream until I see some satisfying visible results.
I love that Glamourbox got us covered from head to toe for the price of just Php595. The total value of all the products is Php1853.50 so it’s totally worth it. If you are planning to go the beach, you should definitely get this beauty box too. You’ll have the luxury of keeping your skin protected without having to spend too much and whatever amount of money you get to save from buying this beauty box can now be used to buy more bikinis, flip flops, cover-ups, shades, etc.
Glamourbox still has some boxes left so better get one now before it runs out. 🙂
