Earlier this year, I was selected to receive a RAN Bonus Box from Rakuten Affiliate Network. It was full of great products and I loved being able to work with and discover new brands.When I was chosen to be part of the fall RAN Bonus Box, I was so excited. The box arrived jam-packed with so many wonderful goodies, many from brands I already know and love as well as a few new ones to try. I love the idea behind these boxes, they’re such a great way for brands and bloggers to connect.
The fall RAN Bonus Box had such a great variety of fashion and beauty items for me to try. I know L.L.Bean is known for their classic and well-made pieces but I’d never tried any of their stuff before. This Katahdin Pom Hat is a great sampling of their products. I love the bright colors and the pom pom on the top is so cute. This actually feels so much different than every other beenie out there- it’s super soft and warm which is perfect since I’ll be traveling to some cold places this winter!
Nordstrom is one of my favorite places to buy clothes and especially shoes so I was really happy to see an item from them in this box. The Halogen Silk Skinny Scarf is so versatile that I’ve already found a million ways to wear it! Not only can it be worn as a scarf (and tied a bunch of different ways) but it’s also perfect as a belt or tied as a headband. The silk is lovely and I love that they sent one in black because it matches everything.
I also received a gift card to JCPenney. I visit Sephora in JCPenney quite a bit so I’m always stopping to check out any new items that catch my eye. I also love their home stores, they have everything you never knew you needed! I’ve already used the gift card to pick up a couple of simple chain necklaces for pendants.
The rest of my fall RAN Bonus Box was filled with beauty items. I have no idea how they fit everything into such a tiny box! First is the Simply Modern Eau De Parfum Rollerball Set from The Limited. I loved Limited Too growing up so this was a fun blast from the past. The rollerballs all smell amazing but I’m particularly fond of the Luna scent.
This Shai Soft Touch Razor from Dorco is straight from South Korea. Since I’m currently in love with everything kbeauty, I was so happy to try this out. The razor actually contains two 3 blade systems for a total of six blades and it’s fairly inexpensive compared to other brands.
Speaking of kbeauty, my box contained three products from Memebox: the Pony Effect Stay Fit Matte Lip Color in So Good, the Bonvivant Botanical Pure Mask, and the Nooni Deep Water Therapy Facial Cream in Balancing. I really like Memebox (although I’m sad they don’t really do the mystery boxes anymore) and I loved all three of these products. The Pony Effect Lip Color is so pretty and although it’s a matte formula, it didn’t dry out my lips. I’m a fan of sheet masks in general so I loved trying the Bonvivant Mask and I liked that it was full of antioxidants. The Nooni Facial Cream was nice and moisturizing, perfect for cold weather.
I love face masks so the Ahava Purifying Mud Mask is perfect for me! It contains Dead Sea Mud and minerals to purify and detoxify skin and this smaller size is great for travel.
The Topshop Smokey Eye Palette in Enigma might just be my favorite item from this box. The colors are great and I like that they’re lighter than the shades in most smoky eye palettes. This gives a more neutral smoky eye that is really pretty. They shadows are easy to work with and nicely pigmented.
Finally, I received the OCC Stained Gloss in Nomad. I’ve heard so many great things about OCC’s lip products but I’ve never tried them before. This color is perfect for fall, it’s a pretty deep red and the application makes it easy to sheer out or layer to get a more intense color.
I was so happy with my fall RAN Bonus Box. I’m so grateful to all of the brands that participated and I’m glad that Rakuten chose me to receive this box. It’s so fun discovering new brands and sharing them with you!
