Adore Box - February 2019 | Frankly Kiersten Reviews

Disclosure: This bag was sent to me in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own. Some links are affiliate links meaning I will make a commission if you click the link and make a purchase. Find out more information here.

What is Adore Box?: Adore Box is a monthly subscription that features 4-10 beauty and lifestyle items. Items can be sample or full-size. They do ask for your t-shirt size when you sign up so that means clothing is also an option.
How Much is Adore Box?: Adore Box is $12 for a single monthly bag, $22 for a double monthly bag (two of the same bag each month), or you can opt for the quarterly premium bag which is $39.16/bag.

My bag is a regular monthly bag.

First look, sample and full size and a pen..? Definitely a mix of beauty and lifestyle.

This bag is adorable. I love that the items are wrapped nicely but are ultimately in something that can be recycled rather than adding more plastic/nylon/etc bags to the world.

Info card.

Nip + Fab Detox Blend Shampoo ($2.55 listed | $1.39 online) - I can only find this available on websites for hotel owners to purchase amenities at, so I'm not sure if this brand is no longer making this for sale to the traditional consumer. The shampoo is very fresh with a slight floral scent. It's listed as a detox shampoo but nothing in the ingredients lead me to believe it's a clarifying. You all know how I feel about receiving shampoo but not conditioner, but further research shows there isn't a matching conditioner that is meant to be used with this.

Rose Gold Pen ($19.99 listed | $5.12 online) - While I love this pen, it's adorable and looks really nice, I have only seen very fancy, refillable pens listed at $20. I wouldn't pay $20 for it, but I would probably pay $5 (which is what I found on Etsy). My only concern with using this at work is that I'll have to make sure no one steals it. That's how someone gets hurt.

LA Fresh You're Like Really Pretty Makeup Remover Wipes ($0.26 listed | $0.34 online) - I'm not sure why these are called Hotel Makeup Remover Wipes besides that they're easy to use for travel. These are really quite good wipes, they take off a full face of makeup besides waterproof mascara, but I never expect that of 'normal' makeup removal methods.

Vichy Pore Purifying Clay Mask ($3.20) - Oh lort no. Even with my face being slightly more oily than it has been in the past (thanks Nexplanon), I still cannot do purifying clay masks. They dry me out more than anything else.

24k Crystal Collagen Gold Powder Eye Mask ($0.70 each) - These are BOMB eye masks that are available on Amazon (sometimes even on Prime)! If you tell me that something works and that I can reliably get it from Amazon, I'll be a fan for life. If you haven't tried these yet, jump on ordering them right now. 

The value for this bag was $29.95 based on the info card, $12.84 based on what I could find online. Because I'm sourcing prices differently than they do, I cannot speak to where their value came from. Overall, the bag was pretty good. It had a good mix of products and I received two of my favorite eye masks which always thrills me (partly because of good products, partly because I feel validated in liking those products).

As always, let me know what you thought of this bag in the comments!
