SinglesSwag January 2019 - Spongellé Front Of Package

SinglesSwag January 2019 - Spongellé Back Of Package

SinglesSwag January 2019 - Spongellé Out Of The Package

Spongellé Pedi-Buffer With Built-In Cleanser – Retail Value $16.00

This pedi-buffer is infused with peppermint, sea kelp, and fragrance. The top fragrant notes are spicy, fruity, and green, the middle notes are rose and powdery, and the bottom notes are aquatic, woody, and musk. How do they come up with these notes? I didn’t detect any of those notes mentioned. The ped-buffer was lightly scented. I have received this product in a subscription box before and I enjoyed the benefits of the pedi-buffer. I wet the buffer and gently scrubbed my feet, the textured side is a gentle exfoliant and the other side of the buffer is smooth, it keeps my feet soft.

From Spongellé:

Benefits

• Body Wash Infused Pedi Buffer 
• Help keep feet soft & clean
• Multi-Function, Multi-Use, 30+ Uses
• All in One Beauty Treatment
• Soothing Extracts of Sea Kelp & Peppermint
• Time-Released Lather
• Dermatologist Tested
• Vegan-Friendly, Cruelty-Free
• Proprietary Infusion Technology
• Good for travel

SinglesSwag January 2019 - Pūrlisse Front Of Package

SinglesSwag January 2019 - Pūrlisse Back Of Package

SinglesSwag January 2019 - Sheet Masks Out Of The Box

Pūrlisse 6-Piece Blue Lotus + White Tea Treatment Sheet Mask – Retail Value $36.00

I received a set of 6 natural fiber sheet masks intended to fight free radicals, improve my skin’s texture, brighten, and help firm my skin. I have used Pūrlisse skin care line in the past and I was pleased with the results. I opted for a late mask night, the sheet mask felt cool on my face, stayed in place as I moved around, and my skin felt somewhat tight against the natural fiber sheet mask. I left the mask on for about 15 minutes and the only noticeable difference was my face looked brighter.

From Pūrlisse:

Nourishing & Renewing

Renew and treat skin with a Treatment Sheet Mask!  This natural fiber mask is infused with BLUE LOTUS, WHITE TEA and restorative Asian botanicals to deliver the best antioxidants and minerals to your skin. This power blend fights free radicals, improves skin texture while White Mulberry brightens and Anise helps firm skin, leaving complexion healthy, beautiful and youthful-looking.  Use on cleansed skin in your regular beauty ritual before moisturizing. Use 1-2 times a week or as needed.

SinglesSwag January 2019 - Necklace

Nico New York Silver Bar Necklace – Listed Value $64 (found here for $25.00)

The designer website for this necklace is no longer available from my searches and I found this site and it was also for sell on Poshmark. I’m curious as to where SinglesSwag sourced the necklaces from since their website is down. The necklace has an 18” chain and 2” extender. The necklace is silver with a singular bar hanging from the chain. I tend to wear more silver pieces and this particular style will be good for layering with other necklaces. Photo of me wearing the necklace, below.

SinglesSwag January 2019 - Chocolate In Package

SinglesSwag January 2019 - Back Of Chocolate Ingredients

SinglesSwag January 2019 - Chocolate On The Plate

Socado Italian Milk Chocolate – Listed Value $5.00

This bar of milk chocolate is creamy, sweet, and melts in my mouth. I tend to favor milk chocolate over dark and this satisfies my chocolate craving. Socado is based in Italy since the ’70s is a confectionary food company that produces confectionary and chocolate.

SinglesSwag January 2019 - Beanie

Headbands Of Hope Black Confetti Beanie – Retail Value $32.85

This black colored speckled stretchy beanie is comfortable and fits over my head and protective hairstyle. The beanie is stretchy and it can be pulled down or scrunch up depending on how I want to style, and the colors are versatile to pull off with any outfit I wear. A headband is given to a child with cancer from purchases from Headbands of Hope, including subscribers purchases from this month’s box. Also, enclosed on the info card is a code for 25% off my purchase at Headbands of Hope. Check out our review to learn more about this subscription service!

SinglesSwag January 2019 - Matte liquid lipstick Box

SinglesSwag January 2019 - Matte liquid lipstick

Real Her Matte Liquid Lipstick – Retail Value $18.00

This is a familiar brand and I love the origin behind the company. I have received numerous matte lipsticks from subscription boxes, my first introduction and I’m now a fan. This paraben and cruelty-free matte liquid lipstick is lightweight, ultra-matte, long-wearing and intended to be smear-resistant. The matte color lasted throughout the day of eating and drinking an iced coffee. The lipstick wasn’t drying and I didn’t feel the need to apply gloss.  Also, “20% of Real Her gross profits go to AAUW a non-profit organization.

SinglesSwag January 2019 - Matte lipstick And Wand

Each of their products is inscribed with an empowering quote to remind me that I’m fearless and powerful. I received the quote, “I AM THE STORM” stenciled on one side. The other side of the lipstick is stenciled “REAL HER.”

SinglesSwag January 2019 - Swatch Of lipstick

Here’s the swatch of matte liquid lipstick in “Ladylove Matte”, “I am the Storm” which is a dark brown with some red undertones, in my opinion.

SinglesSwag January 2019 - Eyelash Curler Package

SinglesSwag January 2019 - Back Of Eyelash Curler Package

SinglesSwag January 2019 - Eyelash Curler

Zoë Ayla Classy RoseGold Eyelash Curler – Listed Value $40.00

A standard eyelash curler in rose gold with rubber pad and ergonomically designed to fit perfectly in my hands. I haven’t used an eyelash curler in years, not sure why I don’t use them. I guess one extra step I would have to take in my minimalist beauty routine. I have heard that if you heat your eyelash curler with a blow dryer you get more of a curl, I decided to try it. I gently heated the eyelash curler with the dryer, curled my lashes with the curler, applied L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Primer and Diorshow Pump ‘N’ Volume Mascara my lashes had curl, length, and volume. Unfortunately, I didn’t find this product on their website. I’m wearing the mascaras in the photo below.

SinglesSwag January 2019 - Fringe Lavender & Rose Hand Cream

Surprise Extra Full-Sized Item: Fringe Lavender & Rose Hand Cream – Retail Value $30.00 (found here for $10.00)

Enclosed in my box was a note indicating their thanks for being a loyal subscriber and to recognize that loyalty I received a full-sized surprise item, hand cream. Let me know what you received in the comments.

I was unable to find this product’s web address but found the item on Poshmark. The hand cream didn’t have the tool that’s at the end of the cap to poke a hole in the tube of hand cream, so I had to use my scissors to open the opening of the hand cream tube. I hate when this happens. The hand cream is lightweight and slightly greasy, I think I applied a little too much. The hand cream is heavily scented. The scent I received is Scent No.13, Lavender & Rose and it came in a rose covered box. I like a light hand cream but the scent is too strong, I may use as a body cream. I appreciate SinglesSwag’s generosity and thoughtfulness in sending the surprise item.

Verdict: The January SinglesSwag box seems like a repeat of past boxes, nothing new to show for the New Year, which is a disappointment. I received more facial sheet masks, a matte liquid lipstick, Spongellé product, which seems to be a staple in subs, a necklace that’s similar to past styles and repeat brands that were included last year. I will use all the products in the box and the products are practical but this sub needs to spice it up, seek out new brands, up and coming styles and trends for “2019” and beyond. This subscription has the stamina and proven itself to be a “go-to lifestyle box for women whether they are single or not. Let’s hope they step up their game in 2019, but with this being said, it’s still my favorite women’s subscription box. SinglesSwag gives out monthly spoilers on their boxes, so be sure to sign-up for notifications!

This month’s box has a value of $241.85 including the bonus item, which is an amazing deal for a $40.00 box!

  1. You have a real ability for writing unique content. I like how you think and the way you represent your views in this article.

    • Thank you, I appreciate that compliment!

  2. DO NOT purchase from SinglesSwag! The box has cheap “expensive” items that they falsify the prices on and they are clearly nothing but a greedy company! I cancelled my subscription on 1/13/2019 and they still charged me 39.99 today, 1/16/2019. Their response to be was “As per the policy on our website, we cannot issue refunds after the 15th. We’ve gone ahead and cancelled your subscription from further renewing.” so, they charge you on the 16th yet to cover their ass they say no refunds after the 15th – pretty slick SinglesSwag! I highly recommend purchasing the FabFitFun box for the same price, 5 more full sized GREAT products, a way classier box, half the time in shipping, wonderful communication to it’s customers, and a truthful company! again, DO NOT PURCHASE from SinglesSwag! You will be so disappointed and scammed!

  3. Great review!

  4. Love this straightforward review. And the beanie.

  5. I wish they would change the name of this sub or at least not make the box so obnoxious. Single or not – I wouldnt have it sent to my office or want this sitting on my porch. I think they are losing a lot of business with this. The message “Love yourself” would probably be better suited inside of the box!

    • I’m also not a a fan of their slogan–but it’s better than Slutbox! How would you like that one on your office desk or have your daughters see that in your porch? I won’t subscribe to either one!

    • I completely agree.

  6. Love the hat and color of lipstick.

  7. Mercari is pretty much the same as poshmark so I think you’re linking to someone selling the necklace they received from singlesswag and ditto for the hand cream.

    The box wasn’t exciting but I did the foot peel mask this month so that spongelle pedi buffer has been so useful! So gross!!!! I found that I’m never super excited by this box but it’s still one of my favorites.

    • Yes, you’re correct. I was disappointed not to find the web address or brand info.

      • I found a few pieces by them at Neiman Marcus but it’s all out of stock merchandise. I’m wondering if it’s a company that never quite made it off the ground floor and had some leftover stock to liquidate. Quality wise I do like it a lot better than certain more expensive brands that are in still in business so I guess that’s better than having a cheaper item by a recognized brand.

  8. You look adorable in that hat and the necklace is perfect on you! 😉

    • Thanks! 😀

    • Thank you!😀

  9. I always enjoy receiving this box, and you can’t go wrong with the offered discounts. My bonus item was Lavender Vanilla Hand Cream.

  10. I did not receive a bonus item. I wonder how many months means loyal customer? Mine is about 9-10.

    • No bonus item for me either. 😔

  11. Very accurate review. I agree this is a cool box for both single and not single people, BUT its definitely “blah”. There’s not a single thing that I haven’t gotten either exactly or some form of from literally any of my other subs. There was no “hero” in this whatsoever. In conclusion, I’m bored.
