SinglesSwag February 2019 Review
Each box comes with an information card listing the items included in the box as well as an encouraging monthly quote.
We haven’t had a book since the November 2018 box and I know subscribers are excited about this, even though the selection is from 2015 the subject matter is still relevant today and hopefully subscribers will glean some inspiration from the book. Elizabeth Gilbert has City of Girls coming in June. Under Part 1 “Courage”, under the section “Creative Living, Defined” she asks the reader “Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you”? She says that we all have that hidden treasure buried, to hunt those buried treasures, those jewels, that’s creative living. “The courage to go on that hunt in the first place-that’s what separates a mundane experience from a more enchanted one.” “The often surprising results of that hunt-that’s what I call Big Magic”. She refers to creative living as, “…a life that is driven more strongly by curiosity than by fear”. “Creative living is where Big Magic abides”. She ends part 1 discussing how fear can keep me going without it controlling me and how I can continue to be interesting and creative. We all have fear, how we manage and navigate that fear that we allow going alongside us is crucial. I must be aware of it but not allow my fear to be in control or in the driver's seat. I have been inspired by what I have read and hopefully be inspired to create Big Magic through my creative living.

Pave Heart Necklace – Retail Value $75.00
SinglesSwag has become known for sending it’s subscribers an array of jewelry, noticeably necklaces. This month's necklace is by far my favorite of their selections they have sent. I will be wearing this on Valentine’s Day! I received a gold-plated, pave shape pendant on a 16” chain with an extender in a burgundy velvet pouch with “Gemelli SinglesSwag” on the front. I was shocked by the price. The necklace is lovely but is it worth $75.00? There was a code for 15% off on the back of the product card where the necklace was attached.
Here I am wearing the necklace, perfect for wearing this Valentine’s Day.
Prato Belli Cantuccini al Cioccolato – Traditional Chocolate Cookies, 3.52 oz – Listed Price $5.00
These biscotti Italian cookies were dry, crunchy, and reminded me of a traditional chocolate chip cookie. I was expecting a flavorful, tasty biscotti and I was wrong, others may find the taste more appealing. The product was produced and packed in Italy. It’s a nice change to receive several servings of a snack item such as this bag of biscotti cookies as opposed to the single serving items that were in the last few boxes.
Recovery Mask Sensitive Skin 2.53oz – Listed Value $29.00
I have their deep cleansing milk (anti-aging) from my April 2018 box, which I cleansed my face with and applied the cream mask to my face and left on for 7 minutes. The creamy face mask soaked into my skin as I wore it for the seven minutes and no irritation to my skin appeared. There were no instructions on the product and their website said, “apply to dry skin and leave on for at least 7 minutes. Rinse off with abundant water”. The mask is good for sensitive skin and has anti-aging properties, rice & tigernuts organic oils, and barley malt extract.
Face mask for sensitive skin. Contains softening and refreshing Orange floral water*, antioxidant vitamin E and a combination of moisturizing Rice*, Poppy*, Tigernuts* and Apricot* oils to restore fatty acids. Marshmallow *, Lemon*, Chamomile* and Everlasting* extracts provide a cocktail of vitamins and minerals with antioxidant and moisturizing properties.
Offering excellent soothing properties, the special Barley Malt extract contained in the formula improves the expression of genes involved in the skin’s barrier function as well as its stress response and regenerating mechanisms. Reduces skin redness, burning, and stinging sensations.
It also contains mineral zinc oxide, which is not absorbed by the skin but has the ability to adhere to its surface, forming a thin film that offers protection from potentially harmful external factors.
This is one of my favorite items from this month's box and an ideal accessory just in time for Valentine’s Day. The small coin purse is heart-shaped, with snake-embossed leather, and a gold lobster clasp chain for my keys or to hook onto my purse. The coin purse held a small number of coins, my driver's license, and my debit card. The shape and not being deep, wouldn’t allow for an excessive amount of coins; I believe they would fall out when I unzipped. I will stick with a small number of coins when I use. Also, enclosed inside the coin purse is a coupon card for 30% off on Jules Kae’s website. Plus, you can get this in purple and navy on their website.
LALA Beauty Promiscuous-Highlighter – Retail Value $26.00
This illuminating baked powder formula that’s long-lasting and has high intensity intends to give me that shine and glow I need. The highlighter gave me somewhat of a glow, I must admit I’m not much for wearing highlighter and may have applied too little of the product to give the desired results. I will play around with the product when I plan to go out this week and get dressed up and apply my party face.
Here’s a swatch of the highlighter in the color “promiscuous”.
These snack-sized almonds covered in dark chocolate were delicious. I’m more of a milk chocolate lover but these were not overpowering and the flavor wasn’t as intense as some dark chocolate I have tried. The snack size packet is 60 calories, 2 grams of sugar, and gluten-free. Enclosed on the info card is a code for 20% of their website.
Verdict: The February SinglesSwag box was much better in person; I had seen the full spoilers and was unimpressed but once I received my box I was delighted in the array of products. The book may be an old edition but I enjoyed what I read so far and the heart-shaped necklace and coin purse were lovely Valentine products. This month was heavy on facial products which can get my skin prepped for a night out. The mask is geared for anti-aging and the facial mist to prep my skin for my serum and moisturizer. A lady can never have too many highlighters! The box is better than last month but still, need the “wow” factor in their box curations. When you subscribe to lifestyle/women's boxes it can get old and the same products or brands show up and it's hard to satisfy each subscriber. Heres hoping they are searching/seeking new upcoming brands and lifestyle/beauty products to “wow” us, inspire us, and make us shine. SinglesSwag gives out monthly spoilers on their boxes, so be sure to sign-up for notifications! This month’s box has a value of $209.49 that’s including the bonus snack, that’s an amazing deal for a $40.00 box!
