Gus & Bella Review by Mel & Lilith – September 2019

A huge thank you to Emily and the Team over at Gus & Bella for reaching out and asking if I would like to review their beautiful box. Also special thanks for your patience as some of you know I have had some time off due to a Holiday promptly followed by a House move so life has been a little hectic.

This box is aimed at Cats & their Humans! Of course Lilith loves it when she gets to have treats too. She really is spoilt already, she literally rules our house and is a Queen. For those who don’t know, we rescued Lil a few years ago now, and before we had her my partner never liked cats. To say they are inseparable would be putting it mildly. She actually sleeps on his chest!

Gus & Bella boxes are themed each month, they come beautifully wrapped with printed tissue paper to match the stunning box design…

This months theme is:

Pamper Puss Box

Time for Lil & I to test out these treats…

Edward Cooper Cat Food

I have to say, I am a fan of this grain free food. For years I have been buying cat food and never had any idea they bulked it out. Lilith loved the tray food but was a bit wary of the dried food as it was smaller chunks than she was used to with her usual.

Yeowww Catnip Banana

I think it is safe to say that Lilith loves this. She has not left it alone since the moment I got it out of the box. She sleeps with it and carries it around with her. If you try to take it off her she hangs on really tight. I am very impressed with this and will buy her another. I would buy other designs and shapes now I know she likes it so much.


Medipet Coat Conditioner

I have never used anything like this but Lilith is long haired so it is really suited to her. I like that it is a light foam and easy to dispense. She didn’t seem bothered by me applying and brushing it in. She has really soft and shiny fur anyway, but this made it extra shiny.

Dr Paw Paw Multipurpose Balm

When I say this is literally an all over balm, I have to laugh! My partner has genuinely used this on his nipples as his shirt was rubbing at work. He asked me if I had anything and I said yes, just the thing! I love Dr Paw Paw and have used several of them including the tinted ones.

Cute Cat Tweezers

I gifted these to my little sister in her Birthday Box as she is more obsessed with Cats than I am! I think she has 4 now and she is only 14!

Cat Shaped Jewellery Dish

I also gifted this to my Sister. It is such a pretty item and boxed that it would make a lovely gift on its own. I know Saskia will love this.

Rosewood Pet Brush

I used this alongside the conditioner. I am impressed by the quality of this and it is easy to use with the shape and handle design. It is my favourite colour too! I was using a cheap brush I got free in a Beauty Box before now, so Lilith has her own to use now. I think she found it quite relaxing when I was using it.

Our Verdict?

I am so impressed with how well designed this box is. From the box design to the well planned out leaflet. The items inside were all high quality and the overall edit feels well thought out.

Gus & Bella are fairly new to the box market, but by what I have seen so far I think they are one to watch. Lilith & I would love to review this one again!
