Let’s take a look inside!

August Bless Box | 
Peeled Snacks – Much Ado About Mango  ($4.79)

To be totally honest, I’m not the biggest dried fruit fanatic, but these Much Ado About Mango snacks by Peeled Snacks are super delicious and I love that they’re made without any sweeteners, fillers, preservatives or chemicals. I usually pair them with a salty snack like pretzels or roasted almonds so I can have a little savory with my sweet!


August Bless Box | Purely Inspired – Organic Protein Sample ($2.00) 

I’ve never been a smoothie gal, so I loved that you can bake with Purely Inspired Organic Protein powder. I added my sample of Purely Inspired Organic Protein to a batch of whole grain muffins for an extra kick of protein, and they turned out delish! (If I do say so myself!)


August Bless Box | InstaNatural – Complete Organics Argan Oil Therapeutic Serum ($18.00)

Serums are game-changing for any skincare routine – they’re a lightweight, fast-absorbing way to add in any extra nutrients your skin is missing, and you can even layer them! I love this Complete Organics Argan Oil Therapeutic Serum because it’s super hydrating a s well as brightening, and it even helps my skin balance oil production so it’s great to wear under makeup!

August Bless Box | Living Proof – No Frizz Instant De-Frizzer ($15.00)

I’m seriously obsessed with this smoothing, conditioning spray from Living Proof! I recently bleached my hair, and the bleaching process made my hair super dry, frizzy and prone to flyaways. This No Frizz Instant De-Frizzer spray tames my frizz and smoothes my hair even on the wildest days, and I love that it also protects my hair from UV rays! Preserving my new color is super important and I love any hair product that helps lock in my style!


August Bless Box | Skinesque – 3 Step Brightening + Charcoal Mask ($15.00)

Ok you guys – I was so excited to see this 3-step Brightening + Charcoal Mask from Skinesque in the box! I’m a certified K-Beauty addict and sheet masks are my kryptonite. I love that this one comes with its own specially formulated cleanser and essence – it really elevates and completes the whole masking experience! This mask made my skin feel super supple and bright, and sooo soft.


August Bless Box | Tavi Noir – Casual Sheer Cassie Mini Crew Socks ($12.00) 

One of my other fave items from the box this month was the Tavi Noir Causal Sheer Cassie Mini Crew Socks! I got the dusty rose color with the burnout floral pattern, and they are so cute! They add a little pizzaz to my everyday outfits, and they look really cute with a pair of chunky block heels!


August Bless Box | June Jacobs – Mandarin Moisture Masque Sample ($9.00)

Another favorite! The Mandarin Moisture Masque Sample from June Jacobs is the perfect balance of refreshing and invigorating. It’s full of antioxidants to fight free radicals and hyaluronic acid to trap in moisture. After using this mask, my skin felt restored and bright, and the mask smells amazing. Do they make a perfume version?

August Bless Box | Amazing Cosmetics – AMAZINGCONCEALER® in Medium Beige ($32.00)

Bless Box doesn’t usually include shade specific items like foundation or concealer. It would be impossible to exactly match everyone’s specific skin tones! This AMAZINGCONCEALER from Amazing Cosmetics in the shade Medium Beige wasn’t an exact match for my skin tone (hey – it’s hard to do!). Not to worry, it worked perfectly for a subtle contour. I used it to contour my nose and under my chin for a super subtle shaded effect, and the formula blended into my foundation like a dream! I might just have to order this in my exact shade!

August Bless Box | WEN- Sweet Almond Mint Remoist Hydrating Mask ($50.00) 

Dedicated Bless Babes will remember this WEN Sweet Almond Mint Remoist Hydrating Mask from past Bless Boxes (the November 2017 Bless Box to be exact!). This luxe mask really rehydrates my stressed, damaged hair and its a great detangler, too!

The August Summer Kisses Bless Box was the perfect mix of luxe skincare, makeup and lifestyle picks. I love summer, but I can’t wait for pumpkin spice and sweater weather. And I really can’t wait to see what Saz has in store for us for September!
