Bless Box “Summer Breeze” June 2019 Review
The full magazine that used to come with this box is now 100% online, but we did receive an info sheet detailing the products included.
Evio Beauty Rejuvenating Face Mask, 1.4 fl oz — Full Size! Retail Value $16.67
Cannabis in skincare is one of the hot trends right now, and I am all aboard the trend train- I have definitely noticed an improvement in redness, sensitivity, and irritation when using hemp or cannabis skincare products. This mask has hemp seed oil as the third ingredient, and as a whole I found this mask to be hydrating and nourishing to my skin.
Midflower Biocellulose Peel Mask — Estimated Value $15 (Buy three for $45)
After hydrogels, biocellulose is my favorite sheet mask material- it usually fits my face like a glove while being slightly cooling. This mask was a treat, as it’s packed with soothing rosewater that my skin drank up. While this was a fun mask, I would never pay full price for them- 3 masks for $45 is a bit insane.
Luseta Beauty Color Brightening Travel Set, 1.01 fl oz each — Retail Value $5
This is a purple shampoo and conditioner set that is free of sulfates, phosphates, and parabens. I don’t color treat my hair (and this works best for those with blond or grey hair!), so I will be passing this along to my mom who has been dyeing her hair for as long as I have been alive.
Appeal Cosmetics Gel Eyeliner in Deep Taupe, 1.4 g — Full Size! Retail Value $21
If I am wearing eyeliner, it is usually a black liquid liner for a wing. However, I can appreciate the staying power of gel eyeliners like this one, and the shade deep taupe would work well to add definition to my lash line on days I am wearing light makeup or just don’t want to mess with creating a wing.
Here it is swatched. It glided smoothly with no tugging.
LA Fresh Makeup Remover Wipe – Listed Value $1 (Buy a pack of 200 for $29.99)
I have tried these before- they are kept in stock at one of my favorite spas. Unfortunately, these are a little too harsh for my sensitive skin- the last time I used one, my face felt like it was burning.
Kiss NY Pro Touch Setting Powder — Full Size! Retail Value $7.99
This isn’t the best setting powder I have ever tried, but I still liked it. It left my face feeling soft with imperfections slightly blurred, and it worked well to set my concealer under my eyes, too.
Vichy Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer, 0.33 oz — Estimated Value $6.67 (Buy the 1 oz version for $19.99)
Vichy calls this a moisturizer, but the thin, watery consistency definitely leans more hydrating serum in my book. Luckily, it layers well, and it adds a solid boost of moisture thanks to the hyaluronic acid and Vichy mineral water.
Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream, 1 oz – Retail Value $16
I have tried this before, and it is a solid balm that works well on lips, cuticles, or anywhere you have skin needing some extra TLC. Some of the beneficial ingredients include glycerin, camphor, vitamins E and B, and hyaluronic acid.
We also received a mini version, perfect for on the go.
Love Beauty & Planet Murumuru Butter & Rose Delicious Glow Body Butter, 9.17 oz – Retail Value $11.99
This was the first of the “mystery summer duo” that I received, and I also received this in the December 2018 Bless Box. I have always felt that these “mystery bonus items” are just a way for the Bless Box to clear out old inventory, and that was cemented with this body butter- when I opened it, it clearly looked old and not something I was wanting to put on my skin. We reached out to customer service, and their solution was to send an entire replacement June box, rather than just a replacement body butter. I think the resolution is satisfactory, but I wish this box would stop sending repeat items. That being said, I enjoy the light rose scent, and it absorbed quickly into my skin.
Vitabiotics Perfectil Hair, Skin, & Nails Vitamins – Retail Value $17.99
This was the second item in the mystery duo, and I first received it in the November 2018 Bless Box. Supplements like these are usually pretty pricey, so I am happy when subscription boxes include a full month’s supply to try these before you purchase them. Rather than just being straight biotin this has a whole host of micronutrients designed to support, well, your hair, skin, and nails.
The Verdict: I am not going to lie- this box was overshadowed by how irritated I was to receive a very old body butter. When I set my frustrations aside on how Bless Box chooses to frequently include (what I presume to think is) old stock, I do think this was a decent box. I really enjoyed both the wash-off mask and the sheet mask, and I am happy to have more Yu-Be cream because it is so versatile. Value-wise, I calculated a total value of $111.25.
