Now, on to the items!
I wear Stila’s liquid lipstick pretty much every day, so I was excited to try this! I was impressed with the pigment and matte finish, but compared to the liquid lipstick, it just didn’t last long. (And this color is too bubblegum pink for me.)

Stila Stay All Day Lip Liner in Rose – FULL SIZE! Value $20
This lip liner is a twist up – no need to sharpen it, and the formula is soft enough to glide on easily.
The finish is matte, and it did a great job of staying put, too. Again, this shade goes perfectly with the included lipstick, but it isn’t a great shade for me. (But this has convinced me to buy this lip liner in Zinfandel to go with my liquid lipstick shade Patina.)

Doucce Smudge Resistant Eyeliner in Black – FULL SIZE! Value $20
This eyeliner isn’t as intense as some eyeliners (or as smudge-proof), but it’s a solid contender. (It’s pretty hard for me to get excited about a standard black eyeliner at this point in my subscription box obsession.)

Real Her Play Book Eyeshadow Palette – Value $28
This collection is the violet smokey eye set – a combination of mattes and shimmers.
The pigment is good on all shades but especially impressive on the shimmers. (The lightest shades didn’t show up well on my skin, but would be great base colors.)
Here is the palette swatched beneath the lipstick, lip liner, and eye liner:
Pura Vida Beach Life Bracelet – Value $5
Pastel rainbow? Love it! (FYI – Pura Vida bracelets has their own subscription – I love it!)
These bracelets are made with wax coated string, so they are super durable, and they are easy to adjust for a perfect fit, too!
True Lemon Crystal Lemon – Value $4
I first discovered True Lemon thanks to Vella Box, and now I totally get the appeal!
If you aren’t familiar, this is a simple way to add lemon flavoring to drinks, recipes, etc. And the ingredient list is simple – just citric acid, lemon oil, and lemon juice!
This is basically a way to get some of the benefits of a wheatgrass shot in easy tablet form:
You just add this to 7-10 oz water or the liquid of your choice and drink! I didn’t mind it, but since I already have a shake I drink every morning, adding another drink to my health to-do list doesn’t seem like something I’ll keep up. (But if you’re someone who does regular wheatgrass shots, I’m sure having these on hand when you can’t do the real thing is great.)
Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream – 3 ml Value $1.60
This is a rich cream/balm hybrid that is super moisturizing, yet dries quickly. It’s pretty impressive! (Back in the day I used to get these as free samples with all my Sephora orders, so it just isn’t exciting for me to see this in a box.)
ArtNaturals Signature Chi Pure Essential Oil Rollerball – Value Listed $7
(I can’t find any single rollerballs available for sale on their site, but a set of 8 is $29.)
This roll-on is a blend of Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Tea Tree, Lemon, Siberian Fir Needles, Cardamom, and Bay Laurel. One sniff and I was instantly alert – this will really wake you up!
I LOVE Dang Coconut Chips! And these caramel sea salt ones are extra good!
They are crispy, crunchy, and just the right amount of sweet. I like using these as a topping on yogurt. (Or just for snacking straight out of the bag!)
Freeman Beauty Revitalizing Peel Off Mask – Value $8
This is a serum-infused gel peel-off mask designed to help refine pores and brighten skin. You leave it on for 5-10 minutes (however long it takes to dry), then peel off! (I love a good peel off mask – just make sure to not apply it close to your hairline or brows!)
It didn’t irritate my skin at all, and the scent was subtle, but I have to admit – I didn’t really notice any difference in my skin after using it.
SkinInc Pure Revival Peel – 5 ml Value $4.25
This is a 10 second peel! Just leave it on for a few seconds, then massage in a circular motion, and then remove with warm water. It made my skin feel so smooth and clean! (And it also made my skin feel tight for about a minute, but it didn’t last.)
FYI – The Chaleur Heat Penetrating Mask was listed on the digital card, but wasn’t in my box. I’m assuming it was supposed to be in all boxes and mine was left out accidentally, so I’m going to reach out to Bless Box to get a replacement.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $132. (Not counting the value of the missing mask.) I think that’s a great box value considering the cost is $37.50 a month. I’m still trying to understand the curation of this box, but I think it’s a mostly beauty box, with a few lifestyle and healthy supplement items. (Personally, I’d prefer to have no sample size products at this price point, and I’m OK if that means fewer items in general.)
To Wrap Up:
