Bless Box June 2018 Review
Bless Box has gotten a recent makeover with their box, and an info booklet that comes along with it. Inside, find the items included and listed values, plus interviews and general life tips.
Ardell Beauty Demi Wispies Lashes - Retail Value $3.79
Since I wear my glasses 95% of the time I don’t wear false lashes very often. Considering Bless Box sent lashes two boxes ago, it feels a bit repetitive. That being said, I love the drama that false lashes provide so I will be rocking these on my next big night out.
Olay Micropolishing Cleansing Infusion Hydrating Glow Facial Cleanser with Crushed Ginger and Citrus Extract, 1 oz – Estimated Value $1.50 (buy the full-size version for $7.49)
Even though this product has a real mouthful for a name, I actually was pleasantly surprised by this drugstore cleanser! I took this with me on a recent trip, and even though this was a new product for my skin that I was suddenly using twice a day, it didn't cause me to break out and my oily, acne-prone skin responded well it to. The exfoliation wasn't too abrasive for every-day use, and the citrus scent was really pleasant. If I was in a pinch and needed a drugstore option for a face wash this would be my first choice.
e.l.f Cosmetics Velvet Touch Eyeshadow Palette in Island Breeze, Full-Size! Retail Value $12
I was excited to see this palette of fun colors in this box, but to be frank the quality just was not there. The eyeshadows really did feel velvety soft, but the color payoff was not great. The maroon and the gold were probably the best of the bunch, but even those shades didn’t pack the punch I was craving.
Here are the swatches. I went over each swatch twice to try and get the color to show through, but as you can see it leaves a lot to be desired.
Seraphine Botanicals Liquid Coal Waterproof Eyeliner, Full-Size! Retail Value $22
This is a product that got delayed, so I don’t actually have it in hand. I think I prefer Bless shipping out the box and including this card letting us know it is on the way in a separate shipment rather than delaying the entire box for it. I know black eyeliners are a bit overdone in subscription boxes, but I am excited to try this one out when it finally arrives! Let me know below on your thoughts of the box shipping the eyeliner separately vs substituting a different item or delaying the entire box.
Totalee Hair Totalee Travel Collection - Retail Value $39.95
Totalee is a new haircare line created by Sazam’s personal hair stylist! I was a bit weary trying out a haircare line that is supposed to be universal, as my hair is never truly satisfied. I needed some shampoo and conditioner for my trip, however, so this came packed in my suitcase! The shampoo impressed me, as it didn’t leave my hair feeling stripped of oils the way most shampoos do (especially shampoos that are not designed for curly hair). The conditioner was a good compliment, and even though it was very lightweight my curls still felt nourished. This duo wouldn't replace my everyday shampoo and conditioner, but it was a big step up from the normal travel-sized hair products. I think these products would be even more successful if your hair isn't as thick and curly as mine! My biggest complaint about the shine spray and hairspray is that the nozzle wasn't the best so the spray was really direct rather than a fine mist. When I sprayed the shine spray into my hands before running my fingers through my hair, I was really impressed with how shiny my curls looked! The hairspray and the "dream elixir" weren't great fits for my hair since I don't heat-style it, but overall I was impressed with the quality and performance of this travel collection!
YHF Los Angeles Sunglasses - Listed Value $60
I normally am not a fan of sunglasses in subscription boxes (due to the prescription glasses issue), however, these sunnies knocked my socks off! The quality of these was superb—the metal frames were sturdy without being too heavy and they don't rattle one bit. I love the geometric edges and the reflective shine of the lenses, and most importantly I thought they looked really great on! Sometimes I see a value of an item in a subscription box but can't feel that value in the quality of the item, but I can definitely see paying $60 (or even a bit more) for these sunglasses easily.
The Verdict: I thought this was another fantastic box from Bless Box! It is perfect for the June box because everything can be put to use when you travel, and many people take vacations during the summer. The face wash and hair set are all TSA-compliant, the eyeshadow, lashes, and eyeliner can work for all you need for your eye makeup, and what is a vacation without a pair of sunglasses? When I first opened the box I was disappointed in how light it looked, items-wise, but now that I have really explored the box I can say I am more than satisfied with it. I calculated a value of $139.24, which is right in line with the value I have come to expect from this box. I think Bless Box continues to grow and become a better box, and this is really starting to become a box I eagerly await every month.
