Why I Unsubscribed from Bellabox


As Einstein often talked, “It’s all about relativity.” I didn’t realise how bad Bellabox was till firstly, I saw lots of other people online getting better stuff in their bellaboxes, and more significantly, till I signed up for a different subscription box and was blown away (#violetboxlovin).

Bellabox bad’s:

  • Too many samples (compared to full sized products). I ended up with sample sachets coming out of my ears.
  • Not worth the money, compared to value for money of other subscription boxes
  • The products you got were repeated sometimes. That is, the same customer would receive the same product more than once. Even if it’s in a different month’s box, I don’t think this is right. It kind of ruins the whole point of subscription boxes, which is trying out new things. I think that Bellabox must have had a poor system of over ordering products and consequently having to double up on distributing them.
  • Products I got in the boxes I didn’t really use much or get excited about. They tended to have the cheaper brands that are easily available in Australia, and products that weren’t even new to the market.

In the end, it’s up to you which subscription boxes you subscribe to. In my opinion, for Australia, Violet Box is the best, and I consider Bellabox to be a lot worse. In saying that, I did enjoy Bellabox quite a lot, that was until, I realised what I was missing out on.


Thanks beauties 🙂

    Bella Box is the first beauty subsciption box I’ve ever signed up for..I was really excited but disappointing since receiving my first box.
    I have one more box coming in November which I have my fingers crossed for. Will check out Violet Box. Thanks for the recommendation.

      Hey! Glad you found my blog post helpful. Unfortunately I think Violet Box has been discontinued :(. Maybe try Lust Have it?
