SinglesSwag February 2018 Review
Each box comes with an information card listing the items included in the box as well as an encouraging monthly quote.
Spongelle, You Have My Heart On A String – Retail Value $18.00
This body wash infused buffer is lightly scented and has a rich lather. I own three of these body infused buffers; one is the pedi buffer which I received in the November box, and the other two are the body wash infused buffers that I received in past subscription boxes. I love the rich lather it creates, and there is a soft side to cleanse and tone my body and a textured side to exfoliate and stimulate circulation. I get multiple washes out of the body buffer; it lasts a few months (I tend to switch out and use a shower gel or bar of soap). The heart shape infused buffer is perfect for Valentine’s.
Beautaniq Beauty Radiant Glow, Brightening and Youth Renewing Masks, Set of 5 – Retail Value $25.00
This set of five sheet masks is ideal for dull, discolored, or tired skin. It’s youth activating and will brighten, and plump my skin.This mask doesn’t contain mineral oils, sulphates, parabens, PEG, phthalates, synthetics, fragrance, or alcohol. It’s vegan and cruelty-free. The mask is thin but not paper thin, it was sturdy and adhered to my face without slipping. There was the right amount of serum attached to the mask no excess serum dripping down my face like I have experienced in the past with other brands of sheet masks. I left the mask on my face for fifteen minutes, and when I took the mask off my face, I massaged the excess serum into my skin. There was a thin layer of serum from the mask left on my face. My face felt tight and refreshed. I love sheet masks they’re easy to apply, and there are so many types of masks to meet my skin care needs, and there are some styles that have a fun mask design. I even keep a sheet mask in my makeup bag in case I need a pick-me-up while away from home.
From Beautaniq Beauty:
Papaya Leaf Extract – Exfoliates and restores even-tone of skin
Lemon Extract – Rich in Vitamin C to brighten and reduce hyperpigmentation
Niacinamide – Lightens age spots while improving elasticity & helping skin retain moisture
Kiwi extract – Restores skin radiance and maintains elasticity in the skin
Tomato extract – Packed with powerful antioxidants to regenerate and restore youth to aged or UV-stressed skin
Strawberry extract – Lightens scars and reduces dark spots while preventing collagen destruction
Bang Beauty Dolce Pink Cream Color -Retail Value $22.00
This multi-use cream in color “dolce pink” intends to highlight areas of my face that I want to “pop,” it can be used as a blush, an eyeshadow or add to my lips. The packaging doesn’t indicate the product usage nor does the website. Fortunately, the info card was helpful in describing the product application. The cream gave me a nice glow and a nice shimmer on my lips. I would use an eyeshadow primer with this cream if I were to choose to use as an eyeshadow. The packaging is compact to add to my makeup bag. I appreciate when a beauty product has multiple uses.
Here is the dolce pink cream swatched; it has a slight pearl color.
Hannah Max Chocolate Chip Cookies, 5oz – Retail Value $3.49
These cookie chips are delicious. They are crunchy, sweet (not overly sweet), and have the right amount of chocolate for my taste. This brand has been a favorite in subscription boxes. I have received this product in a few subs.
Melinda Maria Heart + Arrow Bangle – Listed Price $68.00
This gold plated adjustable bangle bracelet has a heart and arrow on the open sides. This subscription box sends the best fashion jewelry. I have worn the majority of the pieces I have received. This particular piece isn’t on their website so, the price is from the info card. Enclosed with the bangle bracelet is a promo code for 30% off your first order on their website. The bangle bracelet came in a velvet pouch perfect for gifting. The bangle was easy to put on and it adjusted with ease. I did notice the bangles open ends were closer on the model’s wrist in their promotional post on Instagram. So, it seems the fit will vary depending on the size of your wrist.
UPDATE – 2/23 it looks like this is a variant item.
The Beauty Crop Lovable Nudes, Mini Liquid Lipstick Set – Retail Value $24.50
These highly pigmented mini liquid lipsticks came in a set of four; and have a matte finish, formulated with shea butter and vitamin E. It states the set of liquid lipsticks suits all skin tones, but this is not the case. The shades gave me a frosty look; I even mixed the color cake pop with another lipstick color I own and that slightly helped. Overall, a definite miss for me.
Here are the lipstick colors swatched from top to bottom, Rum Raisin, Cake Pop, First Kiss, and Frost.
How to Sew a Button And Other Nifty Things Your Grandmother Knew by Erin Bried – Retail Value $16.00 (found here for $12.80)
This is a how-to book with tips on cooking, entertaining, saving, and so much more. All accounts are from grandmothers who lived through the Great Depression. This book has many tips any woman can glean from; there may tips and recipes you already have mastered, but its good to check out a different version or a tip that’s new.
“Waste not, want not” with this guide to saving money, taking heart, and enjoying the simple pleasures of life.
Nowadays, many of us “outsource” basic tasks. Food is instant, ready-made, and processed with unhealthy additives. Dry cleaners press shirts; delivery guys bring pizza, gardeners tend flowers, and, yes, tailors sew on those pesky buttons. But life can be much simpler, sweeter, and richer–and a lot more fun, too! As your grandmother might say, now is not the time to be careless with your money, and it pays to learn how to do things yourself!
Practical and empowering, How to Sew a Button collects the treasured wisdom of nanas, bubbies, and grandmas from all across the country–as well as modern-day experts–and shares more than one hundred step-by-step essential tips for cooking, cleaning, gardening, and entertaining, including how to
• polish your image by shining your own shoes
• grow your own vegetables (and stash your bounty for the winter)
• sweeten your day by making your own jam
• use baking soda and vinegar to clean your house without toxic chemicals
• feel beautiful by perfecting your posture
• roll your own piecrust and find a slice of heaven
• fold a fitted sheet to crisp perfection
• waltz without stepping on any toes
Complete with helpful illustrations and brimming with nostalgic charm, How to Sew a Button provides calm and comfort in uncertain times. By doing things yourself, with care and attention, you and your loved ones will feel the pleasing rewards of a job well done.
Verdict: The February SinglesSwag box was an enjoyable assortment of practical items, from a set of facial sheet masks to the multi-purpose dolce pink cream to the informative how-to book. I especially enjoyed the book and the yummy chocolate chip cookie chips. They continue to step up their box curations and send an assortment of lifestyle, beauty and fashion items which I like. I’m glad to see a book in this month’s box; hopefully, we will see more of them going forward. SinglesSwag is still my favorite. Check out their Instagram page to get more encouraging quotes and upcoming spoilers! This month’s box has a value of $173.79.
