Principessa, I love your Bellina Box!

This is something every woman should own--and it's even better to receive it as a gift. Sometimes we do not splurge enough on ourselves, but when you think about it, who deserves a little more pampering? We do. However, if you decide to buy this as a gift be sure to purchase 2, because you will most surely want it for yourself. You may find yourself looking for another gift at the last minute.

Use

This beautiful "Bellina Box" is a lovely collection of feminine moisturizing skin care products. Although I have purchased each product individually, I chose this collection as a gift for my niece. For those of you who don't like reading long reviews, I'll give you the highlights first and then you can read on or not!

The products in this kit are for cleansing and moisturizing your skin. There is also a net "pouf" to very gently scrub your skin. It is not your typical drug store pouf. It is thick, dense, scrunched up and held together in such a way that I do not expect it to deteriorate any time soon.

The contents of the box are full size tubes (both 8.5 ounces) of Fresh Fiore Creamy Body Wash; Dolce Dreams Whipped Body Lotion; a smaller travel size tube (2.4 ounces) of Cattiva Diva Silky Hand Cream and a pretty pink scrubbing pouf. I love all of these products! Each scent complements the others and all of them are wonderfully effective.

I would recommend this to women who like soft, feminine scents and products. This kit would be a perfect introduction to the Princepessa products but will also make an awesome gift, welcomed by many women. OKAY--those were the highlight so keep reading for more details or just buy this now.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The Cativa Diva hand cream is the thickest of the 3 tubes. It comes out of the squeezable tube from a hole hidden beneath the screw on/off cap. A small amount goes pretty far--I have used it multiple times a day on my hands and usually once a day on the rest of my body (not the face) after a shower or bath.

Slightly less thick, is the Dolce Dreams Whipped Body Lotion. Like the Cativa Diva, this is a moisturizing lotion. While the Cativa Diva is primarily for your hands, this is primarily for your body (not the face). I have found that they both moisturize well and are equally effective. If you are in a hurry, the Dolce Dreams does spread on more quickly, but you have to be careful not to leave any drips, which will leave a mark on your clothing.

My personal favorite is the Fresh Fiore Body Wash. It is a very thick liquid designed to cleanse and soften your skin. I will never go back to soap again. I use it in combination with the puff and let me tell you--it feels like I have been whisked away to some spa where I am being treated like a queen. Ahhh, just the thought of this makes me dreamy. You can pour body wash on the pouf or spread some on an area of your body and then use the pouf. I prefer to pour it on the pouf because I think I use less product and have more control.

All of the products are smooth, silky and my skin has never felt better. I no longer have flaky, dry skin (especially on my legs, which were always a problem for me).

Taste / Aroma

Obviously, I did not taste these items. Sorry Eden Fantasys, there is only so far I will go! Each product has a light to medium scent, but only a trace of the scent lasts longer than an hour. The different scents seem to blend into another nice scent and none of these scents are strong enough to compete with other scents you may want to use.

I have a hard time describing scents, but I would say these are very feminine and floral. Whatever they are, they all smell great.
    • Light smell
    • Smells good

Performance

All of these products are top quality. I am sure that, like me, you will want to order replacement products when these are running out. The hand cream spreads evenly and is absorbed quickly. You do need to re-apply several times during the day (especially after washing), but this is true of all hand creams.

The body wash is easy to use, especially with the pink pouf. The pouf gently exfoliates as the body wash both cleanses and moisturizes. You will step out of the shower or bath, feel soft and smooth. Trust me on this, your partner will not be able to resist. As they say, "buyer beware".

I like that a travel sized hand cream is included in the box. This makes it easy to keep in my purse or glove compartment so that I am never too far from it. In the winter my skin is very dry and my hands have been known to develop scaly areas. That is not so with the use of these moisturizing creams.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Feels natural
    • Long lasting

Packaging

The main color of these products is pink. The pink and white tubes look attractive against the black box, which is reusable and quite sturdy. Suggestions for use can be found on each tube. All of these products would travel well, but only the 2.4 ounce Cativa Diva and the pouf will pass through airport security. The other 2 items are larger than allowed.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Reuseable box
Follow-up commentary
Most of these items are almost gone, that shows how often they get used. The box makes a nice way to hold little things that usually get tossed in a drawer like buttons, nails, and coupons. You can also use the box to organize cosmetics or for travel. The quality of the products is excellent and once they are gone you still have a small storage container for just about any small items except food!
