More fashion tips and inspiration for springtime!
Black leather jacket + white pants? Why not!
I had fun going through all these spring fashion tips! I liked the statement bags the most!
Here’s another article from Sazan herself, which is all about being a “boss babe.”
Sazan also encourages subscribers to #blessitforward, which means to take old boxes and fill it with your extra supplies to donate. I liked the feature on self-worth, I thought it was great to see this in a box.
Here’s an article and interview with Pauline Youngblood, an inspiring female entrepreneur.
Another page is all about a healthy recipe! Lastly, Bless Box also announced that they are looking for influencers, bloggers, and makeup artists who want to join their community of #bossbabes.
Everything in the April box!
Hippeas Vegan White Cheddar ($1.54) Hippeas are vegan white-cheddar flavored organic chickpea puffs that is light and crunchy. These are great snack items if you want a healthier and non-greasy alternative to Cheeto puffs.
Nuun Hydration Vitamin Supplement in Grapefruit Orange ($6.25) These hydration vitamins are available in 6 flavors: blueberry pomegranate, tangerine lime, grapefruit orange, strawberry melon, blackberry citrus (with caffeine), and ginger lemonade (with caffeine). I received grapefruit orange.
It contains vitamins and minerals, and electrolytes that helps in regulating the amount of fluids throughout your body. This is ideal for people who are always on the go and living an active lifestyle. The tube contains 12 tablets, and each tablet is meant to be dissolved in 16 oz. of water.
Sunday Riley Auto Correct Eye Contour Cream ($21.67) Sunday Riley made an eye cream that instantly delivers a lifted and depuffed look to the eye area. It also helps reduce the appearance of dark circles and fine lines, and works great on almost all skin types. It contains caffeine, Brazilian ginseng root extract, horse chestnut, acamella oleracea extracts and lutein that makes the eyes look fresher, younger, depuffed, and more rested.
Ren Clean Skincare Pillow Spray ($3.33) This spray contains a unique blend of essential oils including lavender and frankincense which help restore natural sleep balance, promote a healthy sleep pattern, and aid natural beauty sleep.
It also aids in eliminating fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness around the eye area. You just have to spray it on your pillow before bed, as the last step of your nighttime routine. Smells great and helps you relax!
Hollywood Fashion Secrets Fashion Tape ($7.50) The tin contains 36 clear double-sided adhesive strips that are hypo-allergenic, fabric friendly, and easy to use. It’s the secret of the stars for wearing all those strappy cutout pieces without everything hanging out!
It comes in a chic tin case, so you can just keep it inside my bag or purse for emergencies. It sticks really well, and it’s great to have in handy especially if you’re wearing a strapless dress!
Life Line Refresh Polish Gelee ($2.56) Made with ultra-soft luffa particles from renewable sources, this formula gently cleans and removes dead skin cells. It contains aloe vera that provides excellent cleansing and rich emollient benefits that support the cleansing action of the luffa grains. It is also infused with green tea extract that conditions the skin without disturbing its natural moisture balance. I like the mild and citrusy scent! Also, a small amount goes a really long way. You just have to apply a small amount to your damp face and neck in a circular motion to create a nice lather.
Life Line Daily Defense Complex ($36.67) It has a lightweight formulation that delivers the latest advances in anti-aging bio-technology. Ingredients include non-embryonic human stem cell derivatives, which stimulates the natural production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. The formula promises to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles while restoring the tone and texture of skin. It gets absorbed by the skin easily, plus it doesn’t leave any greasy residue. However, on the moisturizing aspect, the hydration it provides doesn’t last long and I’ve tried other products that work better for hydrating my skin.
Some subscribers received a Neck Firming Complex instead of this item.
Clarins Lip Comfort Oil ($10.40) I received the same item from the February box. It’s a lip treatment oil that smooths and comforts lips. It also leaves a hint of color, with a plumping and high-shine finish. I’m not a total fan of dupes but I did like this item!
Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara ($7.94) I got the Blackest Black variant, and it is really pigmented. The mascara works great if you want full and dense lashes.
The applicator brush also helps coat and separate your lashes for full volume. The pigment is creamy and infused with coconut extract that helps beautify the lashes. I love drugstore mascara so this is a win!
Dove Exfoliating Body Polish ($0.57) Packed with an indulgent tropical ricey scent, this body polish is ideally used during shower or bath and before using soap or body wash. The particles are fine, so it’s more like a polish than a scrub (think much smaller than sugar scrub, larger than microdermabrasion scrubs!). Also, this exfoliating body cream has a whipped texture and a nice coverage. I like its gentle formula that kept my skin smooth and well-hydrated throughout the day!
Young Blood Plumberry Crushed Mineral Blush ($16.94) An item from the maker in the featured inverview! For an added translucent glow, this mineral blush is the perfect makeup to apply to the cheeks and temples!
I got it in Plumberry which is a beautiful, subtle, yet rich mauve shade. It adds perfect rose-berry tint that is suitable and brightens up a fair to medium complexion. It’s versatile and ideal for contouring, and can also be used as an eyeshadow or tint!
Something fresh is blooming this spring! What could it be?
Bless Box improved this month, as they included a good stash of skin-loving and personal care items and with the ELLE collab it seemed the booklet was less odd. It’s great that they haven’t sent me yet another print, but included a healthy snack instead! I got repeat items, which are past favorites according to the magazine, but at least they are useful. I hope they’ll constantly improve their curation because the subscription has a nice potential to grow out of this sort of random box of goodies into something more focused. I feel like this is a good intro subscription for newbies trying to figure out what they want to subscribe to but haven’t really delved deeply into advanced subscription ninja mode (and grabbing up high-end goodies on the cheap).
