SinglesSwag May 2018 Review
Each box comes with an information card listing the items included in the box as well as an encouraging monthly quote.
dr botanicals Moroccan Rose Superfood Facial Oil, 1.01oz – Retail Value $52.33 USD (£39), Listed Value $45
This facial oil’s main ingredients are almond oil and Vitamins C, and A, to nourish, renew, and moisturize my skin. This facial oil is for dry, normal, or oily skin. I applied three drops of oil onto my cleansed skin, after looking at the directions online which differed from the box it suggests to dispense three drops of face oil onto my fingertips rub fingertips lightly together and gently press oil onto my cheeks, forehead and my chin. The oil quickly absorbs into my skin, and there was no greasy residue. My skin looked refreshed and moisturized.
Silicone Makeup Applicator – Original – Retail Value $20.00
I have received the silicone applicator before, and I’m not a fan, the texture of the applicator and the shape is not my favorite, plus I’m so used to the beauty blender. I need to give it another try. The silicone drop-shaped applicator is non-toxic, cruelty-free, and hypoallergenic. It intends to give a flawless application with liquid/cream makeup and skincare products. I used the silicone applicator to apply the facial oil and the light-activated glow drops. The application was tricky since I’m not accustomed to using. I applied a few drops of the glow drops and the facial oil onto the applicator and blended into my skin. A suggested tip is to throw in the freezer for a de-puffing skincare ritual. There are how-to-videos found here.
“I Don’t Give A Flock” Crew Socks – Retail Value $8.00
I love when subscription boxes send socks, and the styles are always fun and quirky. I received a pair of turquoise crew socks inscribed with “I Don’t Give A Flock” and flamingo prints. I love the wording with the flamingos; I will enjoy rocking these socks. The crew socks are 60% cotton, 37% polyester, and 3% spandex. The socks fit well, and the texture is lightweight and will keep my feet warm. The sock size is 9-11, and the shoe size is 4-10.
Chocolate Chip Cookies – Listed Value $4.00 (buy a 16oz bag for $16.95)
These chocolate chip cookies were semi-sweet, in my opinion, quite dry, with a lingering chocolate aftertaste. Not the best chocolate chip cookies but they may taste better to other subscribers. This subscription box sends a food item each month, and it typically is a sweet treat, this month was not my favorite.
Samantha Faye Arrowhead Necklace – Listed Value $68.00
SinglesSwag has become my accessory stylist with an assortment of jewelry pieces I have received monthly. This month’s item is an arrowhead sterling silver necklace with an 18” long chain with a 2” extender. I’m not a fan of this particular jewelry piece and would like to receive a broader range of jewelry pieces, not the standard gold and silver chain necklace along with the gold and silver bangle bracelet they have sent. I didn’t find this particular necklace on their website, and the price is from this month’s info card.
KeraColor Purify Plus, 7oz – Retail Value $20.00
This leave-in conditioner is suited for medium to coarse hair, locks in color, seals in shine, smooths and detangles hair as well as, combats frizz. This product is not intended for my hairstyle so; I will pass on to a friend.
From KeraColor Hair:
Chlorine and trace minerals steal hair’s hydration, vibrancy, shine, and softness. Infused with our Krystal Water Complex, our Purify Plus Leave-In Conditioning Treatment neutralizes everyday tap water and levels the playing field. -Sulfate, Paraben, & Cruelty-Free.
StarDrops Light-Activated Glow Drops, 0.20fl.oz. – Retail Value $34.00
This light-activated glow drops gave me a beautiful glow, and I loved it. I mixed the facial oil I received in this months box with the glow drops, and the results were amazing. The glow drops are suited for all skin types and tones, use as alone or mix with your foundation or facial creams or oils. The dropper to dispense the product didn’t seem to work, and it was messy getting the product onto the silicone applicator, not sure if the dropper malfunctioned.
From Jelly Pong Pong:
Formulated with Starfruit Extract and Golden Argan Oil to help provide long-lasting hydration and a boost of solar radiance.
With Starfruit Extract and Argan Oil
No Mineral Oil
Here I swatched the light-activated glow drops.
Verdict: The May SinglesSwag box was thoughtfully curated and gave me that needed glow. The last few boxes have been heavy on beauty products, and I have received two pairs of socks so far, and the only change was a book in the February box. This box needs more lifestyle items such as the coloring book and pencil set in the January box which was a nice departure from their standard beauty and jewelry pieces. This subscription delivers on their promise to send full-sized, hand-selected products that have included organic beauty, fashion accessories, delicious snacks and treats, and other surprises, but they haven’t delivered on sending best-selling books on a regular basis which subscribers have mentioned loving. This month’s box has a value of $206.33.
