On my 36th birthday last week, I received a gift in the cutest cardboard box I’ve ever seen, with adorably sketched beauty products on the outside. From the looks of it, I just knew something great would be inside. I wasn’t wrong!
A gift from my mom, this was my first month’s delivery from a beauty subscription service called Bless Box.
When I opened the package, the contents kept spilling out since it was jam-packed with goodies. Each month’s Bless Box has a theme, and this month’s is Shades of Fall. It included five amazing Maybelline mini eyeshadow palettes, each one with six rich autumnal shades. Some are even shiny and sparkly, just in time for the holidays. A mascara promises to make my eyelashes bigger and bolder; a new Essie product will strengthen and color my nails, and a long-last “matte ink” will make my lips irresistible. There’s also a cute eye mask for my beauty sleep; a super hydrating mask; warming mineral bath, blush papers and more!
This amazing gift made me curious about its creator, so I did a little investigating and found out that Bless Box was launched by beautiful and talented Sazan Hendrix, a popular fashion and beauty blogger. When Sazan decided to make a surprise appearance at the wedding of one her big fans, she presented the bride with a box filled with an assortment of her favorite products. The reaction was overwhelming, not just from the bride, but from many of the guests, who oohed and aahed over all the gifts inside.
This gave Sazan the idea to launch her Bless Box service, so women across the country could enjoy their gifts as much as the bride loved hers. Sazan calls each package a “lifestyle box” because it features health and beauty, fashion and home products that she’s hand picked. “I wanted a platform where I could get my favorite products into the hands of my subscribers, and that’s when Bless Box started to come to life,” Sazan said. “I curate it all. I won’t put anything in the box I wouldn’t use myself, from high-end products to handmade goods.”
Count Your Blessings
The cool thing about the Bless Box is you can order one box, or sign up for a three-month, six-month or an annual subscription. A single box is only $29.99, but the products are worth about $150. That’s a pretty great deal. What’s more, my mom managed to get the FOF community 30% off your orders. Use code FAB30 when you check out. I promise this will be one of the best gifts you can give to the favorite ladies in your life (of any age) at holiday time, for a special occasion, or just because!
