You Are A Badass Every Day by Jen Sincero – Retail Value $14.58
This is Jen Sincero’s latest book published last year. This author’s books have been in SinglesSwag before, but this book resonates with me more than her previous book included in this subscription. The users guide for various topics for a “Badass” is on the last page of the book and they include, “Affirmation”, “Important Reminder”, “Journaling”, “Meditation”, “Motivational Spanking”, “Perspective Shift”, “Self-Love/Confidence Boost”, “Tiny To Do”, “Yer Bad”, and “Wake-Up Call.” This quick read is a motivational pick me up, with stories, anecdotes, to-dos, quotes, and journaling prompts for a better “me.” “When you succumb to fear, you are under the illusion that you can predict the future.” and “How determined you are determines how successful you are.” are two quotes that spoke to my current season. I look forward to gleaning more from this motivational book and becoming the “Badass” I’m meant to be.
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author, a book of mantras and meditations to fuel your badassery every day
For anyone who has ever had trouble staying on track while trailblazing towards badassery, You Are a Badass Every Day is the companion to keep you fresh, grateful, scrappy, and driven. In this inspirational guide, bestselling author and world-traveling success coach Jen Sincero distills the big ideas behind her iconic books You Are a Badass and You Are a Badass at Making Money into bite-sized, daily exercises and reflections you need to stay sharp. Giving you permission to let go of missteps, the tools to keep yourself accountable, and the space and acceptance to celebrate like mad when you are kicking butt, You Are a Badass Every Day is organized to help you maneuver through the challenges and maximize the advantages of our seasonal rhythms to power you past beliefs and behaviors that hold you back from greatness.
Seraphine Botanicals Quinoa + Baobab Sculpting & Strengthening Mascara, 0.57 fl oz – Full-Size! Retail Value $24.00
This black mascara is vegan, GMO-free, gluten-free, with no added mineral oils, parabens, phthalates, and has quinoa extract and baobab seed oil that “help repair lash follicles and impart suppleness to strands.” It is also hypoallergenic. The tree-like bristles lengthened and curled my lashes. I was pleased with the results. I’m wearing the mascara in the photo below. I’m a mascara junkie and I’m always excited to receive mascaras in my subscription boxes.
Makeup Drop The Original Silicone Beauty Applicator, Body Edition – Retail Price $20.00
This silicone beauty sponge is great for my face and body to apply my makeup, facial masks, and body bronzers. It’s said that the silicone beauty applicator is better than the classic pink beauty blender, less product is wasted and it gives a flawless finish. I never really noticed a difference. I’m not a makeup junkie and haven’t seen a difference between the two products.
From Makeup Drop:
Skin doesn’t stop at the face.
We didn’t want any(body) to feel left out, so we designed the ultimate beauty applicator. Made for a cleaner, hands-free approach with sunless tanners, lotions, masks and more. Soft on body, heavy on the blend. For the ultimate in dewy, perfect skin.
Pro Tip: The Body is a great applicator for your favorite face mask.
This silicone beauty applicator is great for face or body. There is an elastic band that has “MAKEUPDROP” on the front that I can slip my fingers under to secure the product in my hand to apply the product to my face or body. Here’s a link to the how-to-videos for the silicone beauty applicator.
I received two 1 oz bags of the mini cookie stash in “choc ‘o chip” and “cookie butter cookies” in the shape of mustaches. The cookies are produced in Belgium, non-GMO, no palm oil, nut-free, without artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. The 1 oz bag is 130/136 calories. This subscription sends the best snacks and sweets.
The chocolate cookies were crunchy, sweet, and not as packed full of chocolate chips as other chocolate cookies I have had, not a fan. The butter cookies were better and had a tasty butter flavor, by far the better of the two.
Spongellé Lavender Vanilla Body Wash-Infused Buffer for SinglesSwag – Retail Value $16.00
This brand and product is a staple in subscription boxes. I still have the heart-shaped Spongellé from the February 2018 box and the Spongellé shimmer collection cleanse and buff glow from a past subscription box. I tend to take my time using this particular product and switch up my body cleansers. This built-in body wash and buffer has a rich lather and a gentle exfoliator, plus the lavender scent is faint and smells divine. I use the sponge once the body wash is gone with other body washes I have.
Spongellé has collaborated with SinglesSwag to create a limited-edition Body Wash Infused Buffer in Lavender Vanilla!
These buffers with built-in body wash to cleanse, exfoliate, massage, and hydrate the skin for a spa-like pampering experience at home. Each sponge creates a scented lather that endures for at least 14+ washes showers after the shower.
Sweet Feet Crew Socks – Listed Value $18.00
Their website is up but info and products are coming soon, so the price is taken from the information card. This lime-colored pair of socks has pink accents with watermelons throughout the socks and “ONE IN A MELON” on the soles. I have become accustomed to receiving their socks and the designs are always festive and fun.
Monarch Bloom Necklace + Earrings Set – Listed Value $84.00
First of all, no way is this set worth $84.00. The diamond-shaped necklace and pierced earrings are 18k gold and the necklace 16” long with a 4” inch extender, as indicated on the information card. I have pierced earlobes and was excited to receive a matching set. A switch from just receiving a necklace. The website that is on the product card is not available, which is odd. Is this a defunct company and this is perhaps a leftover product? Seems suspicious, oh well I guess I will never know. The set came in a pink pouch with a butterfly and the brand name on the cover. A lovely set that I will wear often.
Bonus Item: LoveHandle Gold Phone Grip – Retail Value $10.00
I love when SinglesSwag sends tech or lifestyle products, such as this item. I have an iPhone 7 Plus and it will fit on the back middle part of my cell phone. The elastic strap is a little snug but will take some getting used to and adjustment. I have a wallet case for my cell that I’m using right now. I will save this for the future when I’m in the mood for a change. The adhesive is a 3M strip that adheres to the phone.
LoveHandle phone grips give you a new handle on your mobile life.
Using a high-quality fabric strap, LoveHandle is comfortable to use while you grip, flip and capture that perfect selfie angle with just one finger. Its strong grip strength is thanks to our exclusive 3M adhesive strips, which will adhere to most cell phone cases without leaving any residue. You’ll be amazed by how often you take advantage of the LoveHandle phone strap. The best part? You can pick from over 100 LoveHandle designs, or even customize your own. LoveHandle phone grips also make great gifts for friends and family.
Verdict: The August SinglesSwag box seemed to be a repeat from previous boxes and it was a letdown but the product selection was old-time favorites. I received mascara in the April box, Spongellé in the February 2018 and August 2018 box, along with colorful designed socks in past boxes. The book, jewelry, and cookies are staples for this box. The books are a welcome addition and inspiring reads, plus subscribers are usually excited to receive them. The jewelry selection is a change from the standard necklace, to receive a necklace and earrings set was a surprise, while everyone may not have pierced ear lobes it was a befitting curated product for this month. I have enjoyed receiving socks from this subscription but I would like to see another wearable item, maybe a scarf, gloves, or a crossbody purse. Also, a few of the products had discrepancies from the listed price on the info card versus the retail price found on their websites. My favorite products were the yummy butter cookies, mascara, socks, and jewelry set. SinglesSwag gives out monthly spoilers on their boxes, so be sure to sign-up for notifications! According to the info card, this month’s box has a total retail value of $201. Not all of the values were available online, but what I could find totaled to $84.58, which is more than double the cost of the box.
