Now, on to the items!

Vital Proteins Collagen Beauty Water in Strawberry Lemon – Value $32

I use collagen powder daily in my smoothies, but this collagen water is new to me!

This is basically collagen powder enhanced with probiotics and flavor from organic strawberry and organic lemon. In the powder form, it smells a bit like Special K red berries (which I like), but I could still taste the collagen when I mixed this with water.

I’ll be using the rest of this in fruit smoothies – I love the bonus of extra probiotics!

Relax Bath Soak – Retail Value Listed $9.95

(This was made exclusively for subscribers.)

It’s a blend of Himalayan Salt, Epsom Salt, Kaolin Clay, Organic Calendula, Rose Petals, and Organic Lavender! I appreciate the natural ingredient list, and really enjoyed this soak – it lived up to the “relax” name!

Ogee Daily Facial Cleansing Cloths – Retail Value $20

These cleansing cloths are made with 94% organic ingredients. I found the wipes to be extra hydrating compared to my regular makeup wipes, but they didn’t do a good job of removing mascara. So I’ll use these, but would I pay $20 for cleansing cloths that don’t fully remove makeup? Nope.

Maybelline Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in Molten Gold – Value $8

To be honest, I wasn’t expecting to be blown away by a drugstore highlighter, but WOW! Lesson learned = Liz, stop pre-judging makeup!

This highlighter has amazing pigment and micro shimmer. I love the yellow gold color, too. (Swatched in lower photo.)

BH Cosmetics Essential Eyes To Go – Retail Value $4.99

OK, I admit it, I did more pre-judging when I saw the foam eyeshadow applicator. (I don’t know why, but I just associate those with cheaper eyeshadow palettes.) Again, though, the pigment is good throughout this palette, with little fallout. The microshimmer is perfect, too. (Swatched in lower photo.)

Manna Kadar GLO Illuminator – Value $29

This liquid highlighter goes on shimmery pink, but it blends out into a barely-there glow. (It also works well mixed with body lotion for a little extra shimmer all over.)

While I feel Manna Kadar is a bit overexposed in subscription boxes, I’m a fan of this formula. (Swatched in lower photo.)

Manna Kadar Liplocked in Rosette – Sample Retail Value Listed $4.95

Double Manna Kadar!

This is a liquid lipstick with a glossy finish. (And it isn’t sticky!) The pigment is pretty impressive, too.

Here it is swatched beneath the highlighter, eyeshadow palette, and GLO:

Simple Habit – 2 Months Subscription – Value $19.99

I didn’t have to enter any credit card info to use this meditation app! And in addition to meditation programs, they also offer music for concentration while you’re working.

POPChips Potato Ridges in Tangy Barbeque – Value $1.50

These chips are gluten-free, and offer that classic POPChips crunch! The sweet barbecue flavor was addictive, too.

Verdict: This box has a value of about $110. Or $130 if you count the value of the Simple Habit app. I think that’s a great box value considering the cost is $37.50 a month. I would have loved to see a better mix of items (4 makeup items in this box seems like a little much), but otherwise no complaints! What do you think of Bless Box?

  1. So people get different things for one another or is it the extra gift? I wanted to grab this box when I sent it on Gilt a few months back. I have been eyeing but would never buy for 40. To much makeup and not to many brands and products that are a must have. Nothing bothers me more then MANNA KADAR in a subscription box. Iknow they have soon nice products but I just don’t understand why ever one puts them in there boxes unless they are getting free. I don’t think it’s helping either the boxes or MK at this point.Thank you girls for your in put ……I keep looking and if there is a BF deal then maybe, just maybe……….

    • Sorry i ment, do people get different things from each other or is it just an extra gift that can be different?

  2. I’ve never heard of this box. I don’t think it’s well-named bc it sounds like it would be religious themed. But anyway, yes, Liz, a lot of drug store makeup is really good! I’ll take it over another Manna Kadar product any day. 😀

  3. Previous months made this box look a little bit more luxe and exciting, this is underwhelming. I think a home item, or something not makeup (jewelry, a trinket bowl, etc.) would have made this seem more worth the cost.

    It looks like they included an extra item in everyone’s box that was in a previous box (the eyeshadow palette for Liz), which is nice I guess?

    • Agree. It seems like their boxes started out really high and have just gotten lower and lower quality each month. I appreciate more of the lifestyle/home/wellness items they include and less makeup. They are putting too much makeup in lately and I cancelled my sub after the July box. After seeing this review I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything.

  4. Just canceled this box and will not renew after October. Too many drug store brands and the same things month after month. I didn’t get the eyeshadow again in this box thank god. I got the Amika conditioner (which at least had a higher RV and is a weclomed repeat). But this box is not worth the money IMO.. Even more so that you have yo pay almost 8$ for shipping.

  5. I didn’t receive the eyeshadow palette in my August box. Instead I got a pair of Arthur George socks (got a pair the previous month too). Looks like they were rounding out this month’s box with leftovers from previous months.

  6. I cancelled after three months. That eyeshadow palette and a similar bath soak were in the May or June box. Way too many similar items each month for the price.
