February 2018 Loved + Blessed unboxing time!
If you haven’t heard, Loved + Blessed is a subscription box that sends a monthly “box of encouragement” for women of faith. Each box will follow a different theme and consist of a mini poster for your home or office, a repositionable reminder sticker, a scripture card, a keepsake theme card, and a special gift of encouragement. Gifts can include jewelry, books, home decor, fashion accessories, and more. With every box sold, Loved + Blessed donates a portion of the proceeds to Union Rescue Mission, an organization that helps the homeless.

Subscriptions are $15.99/month (plus $4 shipping), or less with multi-month commitments.
Let’s see what’s in the February 2018 Loved + Blessed box!
As always, everything was shipped in a small hot pink box via First Class Mail.
A peek inside!
An info card revealed February’s theme — “Reflection” — and listed the full contents of the box.
Keepsake Theme Card
Taped to the inside lid was a keepsake theme card which further explained the meaning of this month’s theme. It was to serve as a reminder not to stress over the image of yourself that you see in the mirror, but rather on God’s love that you feel reflected in your heart.
February’s 5 x 7 inch mini poster/print featured the phrase “Mirror what you admire”, surrounded by blooming pink roses. The back included the text “Be a reflection of you’d like to see in others”.
Reminder Sticker & Scripture Card
A removable/repositionable “hello beautiful” sticker was included to place on a mirror, laptop, tablet, window, or anywhere else where it can be viewed throughout the day. A coordinating scripture card — featuring 2 Corinthians 3:18 — could be tucked into a wallet or purse for encouragement on the go.
A “washable” paper cosmetic bag was included this month in order to let its natural wrinkles and metallic surface “remind you that you are beautiful because you reflect your heavenly Father’s love”. The bag is rose gold in color and has “Beautiful – Loved + Blessed” printed on the front. The cardboard lining seems like an odd choice for a cosmetics bag, but at least it’s recyclable?
Lastly, there was an encouragement kit to pass along to someone else who could use a helping hand. It consisted of a greeting card with a pop-up envelope inside that held a small scripture card. A cute concept, but I kinda wish it didn’t have the Loved + Blessed logo/website all over it.
I can’t say that February’s Loved + Blessed box was one of my favorites. To be honest, the cosmetic bag just seemed kind of cheap and felt more like a freebie promotional item for the box rather than an inspirational gift. It certainly didn’t justify the monthly cost of the box. Ah well, can’t win ’em all. 😉
