The Style Box by Socialbliss August 2014 Review + $8, $10 & $18 Discount Codes!

This is a WAY late review of The Style Box from Socialbliss for August.  I would have just skipped it but there are some very cool end of summer accessories in this box that deserve a mention!  If you missed my first Style Box review which contains all the subscription details, please click here.

The Style Box comes in a big black and white branded box.  The information card gives a full description of each item, how-to's, tips and the retail price.


August's box included a really fun group of products that coordinate nicely with each other.

The good, no GREAT, news for ladies with giant heads (like me) is the wide brim adjustable visor from Papillon.  I usually don't like receiving hats in subscription boxes because they are always too small but this rattan visor has a wide Velcro strip under one side of the bow so it can be adjusted to fit any size head....even mine!  The brim is almost 5" wide, so it provides maximum sun protection.  This visor folds or rolls tightly so it is also quite packable.  Retail $18

The item that received the most social media buzz is this trendy bag from Totes Galore with a laser cut floral design. Mine is a lovely aqua color but I've also seen them in purple and hot pink. I'm not sure what the fabric is, but this tote has a buttery soft leather-like feel. It came with a dust bag that can be used inside the tote as a liner or to store the tote when not in use.  Retail $48

Sort of an odd item in the box is this little temporary gold metallic hex tattoo strip by the Pi Collection.  This can be a whimsical ring, bracelet or anklet.  Retail $4 (really?)

Next comes a very nice silver double bar cuff bracelet in a white organza bag.  This is quite comfortable and with its minimalist boho style will complement any outfit.  I noticed that some subscribers got this in gold.  Very pretty!  Retail $12

There is a compact retractable lip brush from Bare Escentuals.  When you pull the cap off and put it on the bottom, a very finely bristled brush is locked into place.  The brush can also be used as an eyeliner.  At less than 3" in length when the cap is on, its tiny size makes it perfect for your purse. Retail $7

And finally, there is an absolutely beautiful turquoise necklace by Influence.  The pendant is a small acorn-shaped piece of turquoise and it is suspended from a fine gold chain.  Both simple and elegant, it would make a great layering piece!  Retail $18


That's it for the August Style Box.  The total retail value is $107, which is a little more than double the price paid.  In case you're interested, here are the savings available on longer term subscriptions:

Monthly - $39.95
Three Months - $37 per month
Six Months - $36 per month
Twelve Months - $35 per month

Unfortunately, they do charge $9.95 per month for shipping regardless of term length.

The discount codes that I was able to find as of the date of this post are:

NSBEFREE10 for $10 off any length subscription
8OFF1 for $8 off a one month subscription
18OFF3 for $18 off a three month subscription
18OFF6 for $18 off a six month subscription
18OFF12 for $18 off a twelve month subscription

I'm not sure if it's an error but 18OFF3, 18OFF6 and 18OFF12 also gave $18 off a one month subscription on the day I tried it.  If that continues to work, it's definitely the best discount available.

Check out The Style Box...I'm sure it will appeal to your inner fashionista!
