Here’s a lovely note from Sazan!

The booklet has 17 pages with articles that include the products in the box.

Every corresponding number of the product has a paired description and little comments or tips from Sazan.

I really wish the text was bolder – it’s a little hard to read.

There’s an article on how to throw the perfect summer picnic! I find these tips really helpful.

Show some sibling love with these special tips!

Everything in the August box!

Skinesque 3 Step Brightening + Charcoal Mask ($7.50; $15 on the card) It’s a versatile 3-step brightening plus charcoal mask in an innovative packaging. The first one can be detached using the tear guide. It is a gentle foam cleanser that removes the dirt and impurities of the face. Just lather up and rinse. The second one is the hydra essence that can be detached also. It has sodium hyaluronate and adenosine that provides intense hydration and promotes collagen formation thus reducing wrinkles.

Step 3 is brightening with the charcoal black mask. You can apply this for 15 to 20 minutes and pat so the essence can be fully absorbed by your skin. Do not rinse off as it has a lot of benefits. It’s made of oak tree charcoal which absorbs toxins and delivers essential ingredients and radiates healthier glow to the skin, niacinamide which brightens complexion and evens out skin tone, and nourishing birch tree sap packed with vitamin C.

Purely Inspired Organic Protein French Vanilla ($0.95; $2 on the card) It’s non-GMO protein shake that has an Omega-3 fatty acid from flax, zero cholesterol, and full of digestive enzyme and probiotics. It’s definitely vegetarian-friendly with 100 percent plant-based protein without soy, gluten, or dairy. It doesn’t have artificial sweeteners, colors or flavors so it’s natural and healthy.

It’s not the best tasting vegan protein drink out there but I like it, especially with almond milk.

Tavi Noir Casual Sheer Cassie Mini Crew Socks ($12) These are sophisticated socks that offer comfort and style. They’re unique and comfortable.

These are mini-crew length socks made with 80% nylon and 20% elastane.

You may not see the subtle difference because it’s all black but it’s sheer and opaque stripes.

I stretched it out a bit to make the sheer part more obvious. What a pretty design, perfect for fall!

It has an elastic band to secure the socks and to avoid it from tugging. It also adds a subtle feminine touch to the socks.

ITEM MISSING FROM PREIVOUS BOX! (Whoops, we forgot that this was a missing item from a previous box – this has been corrected from the originally published version of this review).

Seraphine Botanicals Liquid Coal Waterproof Liquid Liner ($22) This liquid eyeliner is versatile. It is waterproof, stain- proof, and foolproof. It has a Rubberflex tip that you can effectively use for simple or creative eye looks.

Other than the quality of the eyeliner, the technique is also the key to a successful eye look so use the 90angle to create a skinny subtle emphasis on the eyes or you can tilt the pen if you want thick cat eye lines. It is vegan and hypoallergenic. It was also formulated without mineral oil, parabens, phthalates, and gluten.

Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer In Medium Beige ($14) High-performance and water-resistant, it’s a concealer that is potently loaded with antioxidants and cucumber fruit extract. This provides a lightweight but long wear coverage. A little of its creamy texture goes a long way and can blend seamlessly to the skin. No problematic creases and clumping anymore. Just dot the concealer with the fingertips if you want instant concealing of blemishes, brown spots, redness or uneven skin tone.

Living Proof No Frizz Instant De-Frizzer ($13.99; $15 on the card) This dry conditioning spray replenishes hair’s natural oil and instantly tames the frizz. To use, just spray it from 6 to 10 inches away from the hair, and smooth the hair by hand or by combing through. The formula is free of parabens, phthalates, and silicone. It is safe for chemically treated or colored hair and has UV protection.

InstaNatural Complete Organics Argan Oil Therapeutic Serum ($17.97) Orange, geranium, and palmarosa essential oils were combined in thus therapeutic serum which is ideal hair for your face, body, and nails. The formula calms and hydrates the skin while toughening up the skin barrier. It also prevents the signs of aging by replenishing the moisture and increasing the circulation. It can be applied twice a day for best results and use of sunscreen with this product is encouraged.

June Jacobs Mandarin Moisture Masque ($4.75; $9 on the card) There’s a sweet aroma of fresh mandarin oranges upon opening the tub. This mask contains algae extract and hyaluronic acid that retains the moisture of the skin and reveals an improved skin texture without excess oil. It is free of preservatives and parabens. It also has a blend of white, red and green tea extracts with goji berry, grape seed, and pomegranate that neutralizes and protects skin from toxins and combat premature aging.

WEN Sweet Almond Mint Remoist Hydrating Hair Mask ($50) This hair mask adds moisture and shine and is a pricey product. FYI, this one on Amazon is cheaper, but we see that it may be a counterfeit product. You do need at least half an hour to leave this mask on your hair, so it’s time intensive, but curly girls will find lots of bounce & shine from this product.  The hair products in this box are best for those without thin & fine hair, in my experience.

Peeled Snacks Much Ado About Mango ($6.46) It’s a healthy snack loaded with vitamins, minerals and a full serving of fruit and fiber without added sugar.

It doesn’t look appetizing but it is delicious!

The company even partnered with farmers and suppliers to grow an organic, safe, non-GMO and gluten-free ingredients and turn it into delectable guilt-free snacks.

This month’s Bless Box included a variety of products encompassing skincare, makeup, and lifestyle. As usual, they gave us an informative booklet and a sweet healthy snack that I can’t get enough of. The vegan protein shake is an interesting addition and just showed the range of items in this box. My faves out of the goodies are the therapeutic serum that can be used all over the body and the 3-step charcoal mask. I wish all masks had foam cleansers and essence with them. We also have a concealer which work great. The socks were unique and feminine at the same time. I’m also happy they included the anti-frizz dry conditioning spray and the hair mask. This box was worth nearly $128 (the eyeliner was from the previous box), so we wish they’d quit with the value inflation in the information booklet – they don’t need it!

    The Totalee was a great set, finer hair friendly and just all around great. That travel size (really nice sizes!) group I didn’t mind at all!

  • Hoping it gets better

    NP!
    They may have just sent to everyone – good for the newbies. Just too many small sizes, inflation and value falling lower and lower.
    Sept. looks to be a good box, however, they have said so many boxes were going to be amazing that just weren’t – so not totally sure what to expect…

      I think it’s *totally* possible because it was probably cheaper to do that than to deal with 2 versions (or mail out separately). I think it’s a great box if you like her makeup & hair choices. I (Brandy) do not often like her hair choices because they don’t work for my hair personally because it’s so fine – but I loved Totalee! For the price I recommend SinglesSwag but everyone has their own preferences.

    Nice product. too many travel size/deluxe sample though. Regarding value though…
    The eyeliner was the missing eyeliner from the June box, so if you were a previous subscriber, it doesn’t add to the value of this box. That with $50 of the value going towards a small jar of hair masque really was a big turn off.

      My mistake, I totally forgot. I will edit & update.
