The 'August Bridal Box' by Something Blue
This month has been one of my favourites for boxes this year, as each of my boxes have had some gorgeous products! The August Bridal Box by Something Blue contains a mix of beauty products, accessories, pre-wedding goodies, sweets, and drinks! There are two boxes that you can subscribe to, the Something Blue Bridal Box which is $45.60 NZD per month, along with $5 shipping, and the Something Blue LUXE Bridal Box which is $77.60 NZD per month, along with $5 shipping. Today I'll be reviewing the Bridal Box which contained 7 items.
Loving the little hand written note included in this month's box, it's always nice personal touch when you receive a note!
1. Makeup Bag
Anything in pastel blue I like, and this makeup is so cute with its gold zip and wording. I was in need of a new makeup bag, and this one is a decent size without being too big. This would also be great to use to create a little emergency kit with for your wedding day.
2. Shower Steamer by Take a Whiff
Next up in the August Box is this Lemon Verbena Shower Steamer by Christchurch-based bath and body company, Take a Whiff. These little gems are like bath bombs for your shower, you place the steamer in the corner of your shower, add some water, and enjoy the Lemon Verbena fragrance whilst you're having a shower. Shower steamers are a great way to relax if you don't have a bath or prefer showers!
3. Something Blue Pencils
This month's item by Something Blue is this pack of five wedding themed pencils. I don't use pencils often but these are good for wedding planning, when planning, things change, so you definitely don't want to be going straight in with a pen at first!
4. Gin & Tonic with Lemon by Sundown New Zealand Gin
Each month, you'll most likely receive a yummy drink or two in your Something Blue Blue Box. This month, we have the Light Gin & Tonic with Lemon by Sundown NZ Gin. Sundown NZ Gin are based in the Bay of Plenty and their drinks are made from natural ingredients and are low in sugar. Sundown Gin contains a blend of botanicals including :Juniper Berry, Angelica, Lemon, Orange, Coriander Seeds, Kawakawa, Horopito, Orris Root, Gentian Root. I really enjoyed these light drinks, and they're the perfect summer beverage!
Price: $15.99 for a 4-pack
5. Hen Night Truth Or Dare Cards by Be My Guest
In the August box, subscribers also receive this pack of fun Truth or Dare Hens Night Cards by Dunedin-based wedding stationary company, Be My Guest. Be My Guest design and make wedding invitations, menus, seating cards, name cards, as well as a range of wedding activity and advice cards. These cards are a fun game to play over a few drinks and break the ice with!
6. Champagne Petal Pop by Lollipop Lane
Next, we have this pretty champagne lollipop by Lollipop Lane. Lollipop Lane make a range of different flavoured lollipops that contain edible flowers, with this one being their Champagne flavour with a sprinkle of Cornflower petals.
These would be a cute little sweet treat to include in a bridesmaid box, or you could also have these for wedding favours as Lollipop Lane can make larger or bespoke orders!

7. Plump & Glow Peptide Power Pack by Snowberry
The last item in the August Box is the Plump & Glow Peptide Power Pack by NZ skincare company, Snowberry. Snowberry's range of products are cruelty free, contain natural ingredients, and is the first NZ skincare company to have the carboNZeroCert™ certification. There are two products in this pack, the New Radiance Face Serum, and the Smoothing Eye Cream. The New Radiance Face Serum contains ingredients such as: Kanuka Honey, which hydrates and soothes skin; Hyaluronic Acid, a hydrator which helps plump the skin; and a copper peptide complex which has anti-aging properties. This serum is just what I need, and the serum itself feels light on my skin. The Smoothing Eye Cream contains: NZ Harekeke Seed Oil, which is rich in Omega Acids; Totarol, an extract from the Totara Tree which is rich in anti-oxidants; L22, which contains extracts of olive, jojoba, and macadamia; Vitamin E; Argireline Peptide; Mountain Ash Bud extract; Antarticine, which helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles; and Hyaluronic Acid. This eye cream feels super nourishing, without being greasy and I'm excited to see the benefits these products have on my skin.
