Not for me

The scent was the only negative thing about this box set. Otherwise, I loved every product in it. Everything is very effective in making you feel silky smooth and pampered! The reusable box is definitely a bonus too.

Use

The Bellina Box is filled with four great products that would make any woman feel pampered! With 2 full sized products, a travel hand creme for on the go applications and a very sturdy, thick shower poof, this box has all the basic essentials. The sturdy cardboard box, with latch, is reuseable and can hold quite a bit. Keep your items in it for travel, or use it for something else.

The box includes: (1) 8.5 oz Fresh Fiore Creamy Body Wash, (1) 8.5 oz Dolce Dreams Whipped Body Lotion, (1) 3.4 oz Cattiva Diva Silky Hand Cream-Travel size and 1 large, pink shower poof.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The body wash is a creamy, pearl pink color. I wouldn't say that its the creamiest body wash that I have used, but it pours nicely onto the poof. Just make sure that you watch how much you are using because it can come out of the tube a bit fast.

The Body lotion is thick and creamy, almost more of a body butter rather than a lotion. A little goes a long way and it absorbs quickly into the skin.

The travel sized lotion is the same thick and creamy consistency as the body lotion, just in a smaller tube.

Each is easy to dispense and you don't have an icky, greasy feeling afterwards! Which is a huge bonus!

Taste / Aroma

The scent is probably the only thing that threw me off from this product. It comes in one scent: Belloccia / Isolina.

I didn't care for it much. It left me with the feeling of my mom or grandma. I am really funny about scents though. Most of the high priced perfumes that they have out nowadays that everyone clamors over, I can't stand and think it has that "Grandma" scent. So, its definitely going to be one of those hit or miss things where you either love it or hate it. I think that it smells a lot like baby powder. My friend, that I asked to smell it and tell me what she thought it smelled like, said that it reminded her of Victoria Secret. Those scents are highly popular among many women, so I am assuming that most will enjoy the scent, I'm just weird! It does have a very perfume like scent to it. I found it to be a bit overwhelming and strong.
    • Strong smell

Performance

The body was was great! It lathers up really nice and left my skin feeling very soft and silky. I noticed that the scent did follow me throughout the shower and then out of the shower. Which is nice, beings no one likes to smell good in JUST the shower! However, in my case, beings that I didn't care for the scent, this wasn't such a hot thing for me.

The body lotion absorbed well and left my hands feeling moisturized for hours afterwards. I didn't notice that I had to reapply or that it had worn off quickly at all. I sit next to the window when I am on my laptop, typing away. So as you can imagine, I get dry hands a lot, especially with the cold air blowing in. So, for me, this lotion worked surprisingly well.

I have decided to give this set to my mom though, for reasons stated above (the scent), so I really don't have any use for anything in this set other than the poof. I will be keeping the box though, as it is reusable and pretty cute!
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water

Packaging

This product comes in a sturdy, cardboard box that has a metal clasp lock on the front, underneath the handle. The handle is somewhat flimsy, but not bad. Its just "loose". The box is really nice and can be reused for other purposes once you take your products out, or you can use this box for traveling with your products.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Does not leak
    • Easy to use / dispense
Follow-up commentary
I like the set and the products that came in it. But I still cannot get past the scent. It just smells like my grandma or my mom. Not sure why, but that's what it reminds me of. So, I chose to give it away. I used it a few times for the review and that was about it. Its cute, if you like the scent. Is it worth the moolah? Not for me. Im a thrifty chick and this set is just too rich for my blood, even if I DID like the scent.
