Bless Box July 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. This month’s booklet also came with a tutorial on how to get your best eyebrows!
Primal Kitchen Vanilla Collagen Fuel Packet, 0.54 oz – Buy a 12 pack for $34.95
According to the info booklet, I was supposed to receive a chocolate coconut collagen, but as you can see I received vanilla. I am actually quite happy with that, as I am not a big fan of chocolate flavored things. I mixed this with a cup of hot chocolate and I actually enjoyed it. I am still not sure exactly what collagen is though—according to the info book this is formulated without sugar, dairy, whey, gluten, or soy, however that doesn’t exactly solve the riddle. Collagen is supposed to be good for my skin and can also promote heart health, but I am still not positive this is a supplement I need in my life.
A size wasn’t listed for this lipstick, but I estimated this to be about half of the full-size version. Auckland is a great mauve-nude shade, and this was a comfortable liquid lipstick. I wasn’t too impressed with the staying power, but when it faded it didn’t make a mess of my lips which is something I always appreciate.
Maybelline Master Precise All Day Liquid Eyeliner, 10 ml (Full-Size!) – Retail Value $7.99
In theory, this would be the second month in a row that Bless sent us a black liquid eyeliner—except I still haven’t received the one from last month! That aside, I actually quite liked this—I got one of my best flicks in months using this liner. I think this is a great quality drugstore find for a liquid liner, with the tip being easy to control and the black dark like my soul (kidding!).
Appeal Cosmetics Lustre Drops in Gold, 15 ml (Full-Size!) – Retail Value $29
These highlighting drops pack a shimmery punch and that is just how I like it! I found these easy to blend using a beauty blender and it can be used sparingly for a soft sheen or packed on for some serious shine. I have so many highlighters that I will never end up using them all, and yet somehow I am not mad about adding this one to my collection.
NCLA Cheers! Tool Kit – Retail Value $16
I was very happy to see this—it arrived when my cuticles were in a very sorry state, and NCLA makes some great tools for keeping your nails and cuticles in great shape. I also really love the gold glitter packaging of the kit. Glitter is something that speaks to me on a spiritual level, so the more glitter items in my life the better.
Simple Skincare Skin Quench Sleeping Cream, 1.7 fl oz. (Full-Size!) – Retail Value $9.99
Somehow I am a lot less excited to see this now considering this was included three months ago in the May box. Sazan said she loved it so much she wanted to bring it back for round two. I think this is a good basic moisturizer, but nothing about it screams “hey, I am so fabulous you need two of me in a three-month span.”
Shea Moisture Silicone Free Miracle Styler, 3.5 oz – Retail Value $9.99
This is another May repeat item. This is listed as a “bonus,” yet somehow it doesn’t feel special. This protects against thermal and environmental damage, but since I do not heat style my curls this isn’t a good fit for my hair. This would probably be best for fine to medium hair that doesn’t tangle as easily as mine.
This two-piece kit contains a whitening toothpaste and a whitening accelerant that you use at the same time on your toothbrush for maximum teeth whitening potential. My teeth can be rather sensitive and this didn’t irritate them, but I haven’t quite noticed a difference yet in the whiteness of my teeth. Here’s hoping that changes within the next week or so!
Nelson J Moisture Healing Mask, 1 oz – Estimated Value $6.76 (Buy the full-size version here for $23)
This came right when my hair was feeling extra dry and coarse, so I jumped right in with using this. The mask really helped with detangling my hair and making it soft, but I was bummed that I used about half of this sample in one go—I wouldn’t buy the full-size version because I would only get about seven uses from it.
Tarte Cosmetics Arch Architect, Full-Size! – Retail Value $24
Oh, Tarte, I love you so. This is a universal shade with a gel pencil on one end and a clear brow gel on the other. I found this to be a touch lighter than my typical brow color, but it was super easy to apply and blend.
Here are the swatches. From top to bottom we have the lipstick, the eyeliner, the highlighter, and the brow pencil.
The Verdict: Now that POPSUGAR is a quarterly box, I believe there is a spot to fill in the subscription box market in the $30-$40 range. Bless Box has the potential to fill that spot,
