Bless Box “Heatwave” August 2019 Review

Before we get into the review, a quick note: this August box arrived the first or second week into September. According to Bless Box‘s shipping FAQ, “Bless Box ships once per month, usually around the 20th – 25th.” As an FYI, it seems like the delivery cadence differs here compared to some other subscriptions.

      Curology The Moisturizer, 0.8 fl oz

      I am not really sure how to value this moisturizer- you can only purchase it in a set with a monthly Curology subscription. This box also came with a code for a free month minus the $4.95 shipping fee, but it looks like that is an offer available to anyone who goes to their website. For more information on Curology, I would read Megan’s breakdown here. In terms of this moisturizer, I thought it was lightweight and a good morning moisturizer for my dry skin.

        Bless Custom Bucket Hat – Listed Value $15

        Bless Box is no stranger to sending custom hats, but this bucket hat is a first. Even more surprising is the fact that I don’t hate how I look wearing it? I didn’t expect that. This is unbranded and is just a shade of light pink all around, and it provides solid coverage from the sun. I’m not sure where I would wear this, but I would wear it if the need arose.

          Zint Nutrition Cacao Powder, 8 oz – Retail Value $8.69

          This is non-alkalized cacao powder. I’m not quite sure what that means, but this is a superfood with antioxidants and resveratrol. I never bake, so I’m passing this along to a friend who enjoys making chocolate recipes.

            Invisibobble Multiband – Retail Value $9

            I am a hardcore invisibobble fan, so I was stoked to see this new release from them in the box. It has a typical headband front, and the back is connected by the signature invisibobble loops. It stays secure in my hair without getting tangled, and I would like three more, please.

              Eve Hansen Antioxidant Sheet Masks, 5 ct – Retail Value $20.98

              I was excited to see we got a full box of sheet masks from Eve Hansen, but that excitement was dampened when I saw they expired within a month of this box being delivered. I’m not quite sure how old these are that they are officially expired now that I type this review, but I will say my skin enjoyed these and is looking visibly brighter after each use.

              concealer

              Amazing Cosmetics Concealer in Medium Beige, 0.07 oz – Estimated Value $9.80 (Buy the 0.2 oz version for $28)

              I’m not really sure why something as specific as concealer was included in this box- the shade medium beige definitely will not work for everyone. I can’t say much about this beyond that it looked very pigmented, so if this shade is a match for you this small tube should still last for a while.

                Niu Body Sugar Lip Polish in Piña Colada, 5 g – Estimated Value $3.33 (Buy the 15 g jar for $10)

                This is so tasty! I dig the piña colada flavors, and this also does a great job of exfoliating my lips before I apply a liquid lipstick. It left my lips soft without being too abrasive, and it was easy to wipe/lick off so I didn’t have sugar granules all over my face.

                  Cliff Whole Lotta Salted Dark Chocolate Bar – Retail Value $2.99

                  I don’t usually reach for Cliff bars- I find their ratio of calories to protein to be lacking for me, but when I looked at this as a sweet snack rather than a protein bar, I enjoyed the blend of chocolate, sea salt, cinnamon, and date paste. I probably wouldn’t purchase these, but this bar wasn’t bad.

                    Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser, 3.5 oz – Retail Value $4.99

                    For reasons that escape me, Bless Box likes to include products from previous boxes in each box and label it a “duo.” This was the first item in my “Summer Heatwave Duo,” and I don’t like it. This is made with both mineral oil and beeswax, and after using it I always feel like there has been a film left on my face that is a bit of a challenge for my next cleanser to remove.

                      Callyssee Perk Up Your Eyes Caffeine Mask, 2 pairs – Estimated Value $8.17 (Buy 12 pairs for $49)

                      I love eye masks, but these didn’t cut it for me. I actually left these in the fridge overnight before using, and yet when I applied them they were only cooling for a few minutes. The cooling sensation is one of my favorite parts of using an eye mask, so that was a bummer. I would also like to point out that Bless Box listed the value of my heatwave duo as $20, but my two items total a little over $13.

                      The Verdict: This was another good box from BlessEverything I received is both useful and of good quality, and including brands like invisibobble and Eve Hansen added to the overall experience for me. I calculated a total value of $82.95 for everything except the Curology cleanser, which does feel a bit low.  

                      To Wrap Up:

                      Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, but subscribe by the 17th to receive that month’s box. From Bless Box:

                      Bless Box ships once per month, usually around the 20th – 25th. If you subscribed on or before the 17th, you will receive that month’s box with our regular shipment. If you subscribed after the 17th, your first box will ship later in the month or early the following month, as part of a second shipment (unless otherwise stated).

                      Value Breakdown: This box costs $37.49 ($29.99 + $7.50 shipping) which means you are paying $3.75 per item.

                      1. I got a whole box of those clif bars at my university’s welcome back festivities lol they are not great, and too hard and seedy/nutty for me but I eat them when I’m late for class

                      2. Oohhhh. I haven’t seen the invisibobble headband before!!! I need to look into those because I use an invisibobble pretty much everyday!! One of the greatest items I discovered several years ago because of this site!!🙌❤

                      3. I have also REALLY tried liking this box..I was really disappointed with the September box recieved last week. I already hate paying shipping and I just don’t feel like the value was there this month.. I guess it’s time to cancel again.

                      4. I have tried over and over to like BB’s contents but couldn’t. Both the cacao powder and face masks were about to expire. I wonder of Sazan Hendrix actually picks out the products or even writes the info..

                        I let them know about the expiration issue and was informed that I could get 35% off a next box or replacement with an equal value, I chose the replacement options. The products I received were of equal value. And I don’t know how many times we have received the concealer.

                        By the way Jessica, raw cacao can be mixed with yogurt, in a smoothie or whatever you can think of as it has health benefits. I also appreciate how you were able to review the box in a positive light, even as I believe it was poorly curated and expiration dates were ‘overlooked’ by BB.

                      5. I did not receive the August box, but did get the September box yesterday and will not be continuing the subscription. I’m curious to hear your opinion on the September box.

                        • Hi Colleen!
                          September box has been delivered and I’ll be opening it tonight! Expect the review in about a week.

                          Thanks for reading!

                        • The sept box was horrible. Worst one they have ever done. Was so disappointed
