Unboxing: January Bless Box | Turning A New Leaf

Happy New Year, Bless Babes! January is all about resolutions, fresh starts, and “turning a new leaf.” Oh, and January’s Bless Box, of course!

The mag this month was so much fun to read. I loved getting to read all about Cora’s incredible mission, and learning how to make Lauren Scruggs Kennedy’s famous wellness smoothie! The box this month was insanely packed with goodies! Just picking up this super heavy, full box I couldn’t wait to rip it open! Plus, I know my little Bless Box had to battle an insane winter blizzard to make it’s way to me!

Let’s take a look inside!

Something Hydrating: St. Ives – Hydrating Cactus Water and Hibiscus Sheet Mask ($2.25)

This sheet mask from St. Ives is sooo hydrating and softening. This sheet mask is made with 100% natural extracts and 100% natural cotton, and its paraben-free and dermatologist tested! I left this mask on for just 10 minutes, and my skin felt so soft and glowy afterward! 

Something Relaxing: St. Ives – Hydrating Cactus Water and Hibiscus Hydrogel Eye Mask ($2.25)

love sheet masks. But if there’s one thing I think I love more than a good sheet mask, it’s a really good eye mask! These hydrogel eye patches from St. Ives feature the same softening, hydrating formula as the sheet mask! This Cactus Water and Hibiscus Hydrogel Eye Mask de-puffs and soothes under-eyes in a flash!

Something Empowering: Cora – Sample Pack ($9.00)

I was pleasantly surprised to find this Cora Sample Pack in my Bless Box! Menstrual health is sooo important, and it’s so great to be able to talk openly about menstrual health with your best girlfriends. I loved Cora’s all-natural, beautifully designed and packaged products, and learning about their mission was so inspiring!

Something Nourishing: J. R. Watkins – Coconut Milk & Honey Body Oil Mist ($8.99)

I can’t get enough of this Coconut Milk & Honey Body Oil Mist! The scent is so sweet and comforting, and I love the light shimmer and glow it gives my skin – even in the dead of winter!

Something Genius: Higher Education Skincare – Cram Session Vitamin Infused Hydrating Lotion ($33.00)

This is one of my favorite items in the box this month! Higher Education Skincare is a super-cool, up-and-coming skincare brand. Mark my words, they’re gonna be HUGE this time next year! Their “Cram Session” Vitamin Infused Hydrating Lotion is chock full of powerful antioxidants or vitamins A, C and E to protect your skin from free radials! It’s sooo soothing and calming. This is my new go-to moisturizer!

Something Green: Strawesome – #ReadySetBless Glass Straw ($9.95)

There’s just something about drinking a plain ol’ glass of water with a fancy glass straw that makes it taste that much better! This sleek, totally sustainable glass straw from Strawsome is replacing all those disposable plastic straws I used to keep around! I love it!

Something Gorgeous: Colourpop – Lux Lipstick in Hey Mr. DJ ($7.00)

My new fave rosy nude lipstick! Just the right amount of color to warm up my skin tone and add a little warmth and contrast, without taking away from my “no-makeup makeup” look!

Something Rich: PHYTO – Huile Suprême Rich Smoothing Oil ($15.00)

There’s something about dry winter weather that just makes my hair go berserk. I get crazy static and a million fly-aways the minute I step out the door! This PHYTO Huile Suprême is my new anti-frizz secret weapon! It smoothes fly-aways, adds shine, restores moisture and even protects your hair from UV damage and free radicals! No matter what your style, it’s the perfect finishing step!

Something Brightening: Earthen Skincare – InstantPeel Exfoliant ($8.00)

Finally – an exfoliating skin peel that’s gentle enough for my sensitive skin! This peel uses natural proteins and enzymes to gently slough off dead skin cells, leaving behind smooth, glowing, radiant skin! I used this peel and followed it up with some Cram Session moisturizer, and my skin was instantly so soft and pretty!

Something Protecting: Yu-Be – Lip Balm ($5)

I have to confess – Yu-Be Lip Balm has been my favorite lip treatment for years! I picked up my first tube at a Japanese grocery store when I was in high school, and I’ve been hooked ever since. You can imagine how happy I was to find Yu-Be in my January Bless Box! It’s made with the same skin-loving ingredients as the moisturizing cream: Vitamin E oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Beeswax, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Camphor, Aloe Vera and Rosemary Leaf Extract. Nothing else keeps my lips so soft, kissable and moisturized all year round!  

Something Restoring: Nelson J – Argan Oil 7 Moisture Healing Hair Mask 1oz ($9.00)

This month, Saz sent us some of her past favorite Bless Box items! The Nelson J Argan Oil hair mask from July’s Bless Box is a multi-tasking hair product that detangles, controls frizz, prevents hair color fading, seals split ends, protects from chlorine and salt water, restores silkiness and shine, and enhances your hair’s natural body! 

Something Lovely: L.O.V. Cosmetics –  Best Dressed 12H Long-Wear Eye Pencil in Majestic Amethyst ($8.16)

This eye pencil from September’s Bless Box delivers some of the most high-impact, crazy gorgeous color I’ve ever seen! This dreamy amethyst shade really brings out my hazel eyes, and I get compliments every time I wear it! 

Something Tropical: EDEN BodyWorks – Coconut Shea Body Lotion ($8.99)

The last past box fave item is the EDEN BodyWorks Coconut Shea Body Lotion from November’s Bless Box! This lightweight, hydrating body cream is enriched with Vitamin E and Shea Butter to leave skin soft, smooth and moisturized. I’m obsessed with this tropical coconut scent! 

The January Bless Box was the perfect mix of luxe skincare, makeup and lifestyle picks. I really can’t wait to see what Sazan has in store for us for Febuary!
