RAKUTEN AFFILIATE NETWORK'S BLOOMINGDALE'S BONUS BOX: Reveal and Review



Hi there, my darlings! I've been a member of the Rakuten Affiliate Network (RAN) almost since the very beginning of my blogging adventures. But, I have to admit, I haven't been very good at affiliate marketing! The network itself is very easy to work with and allows bloggers the opportunity to earn some compensation while sharing some of their favorite products. So, recently I reached back out to them to re-establish the connection and learn how to use affiliate links such that it's beneficial for the blog yet not annoying for any of you. As a result, I attended a very informative networking event in NYC recently and best yet, I had the privilege of trying out the exclusive Bloomingdale's Bonus Box through RAN. Today, I'd love to share with you all my thoughts on the fabulous products included in this box!



EVE LOM Cleanser ($50 for 1.7 oz)

Acclaimed by Vogue as "probably the best cleanser in the world," this award-winning classic does it all—melting away makeup and grime as it exfoliates, brightens and tones. With its soothing blend of essential oils and cocoa butter, it powerfully decongests as you gently massage it into skin. The specially woven muslin cloth is used with the Cleanser to improve skin circulation while cleansing and exfoliating the skin in minutes. The result is clean, perfectly balanced skin and a radiant complexion. Suitable for all skin types.

Mighty praise coming from Vogue, you can imagine my excitement to try this for my self! Although recommended for all skin types, I do have acne-prone skin so I'll be saving this for the colder months when my skin needs a little extra hydration and doesn't immediately erupt in blemishes.



CLINIQUE City Block Purifying Charcoal Clay Mask + Scrub ($28 for 3.4 oz)

Who it's for: Appropriate for all skin types.

What it is: A 5-minute dual-action detoxifying and exfoliating clay mask.

What it does: Purifies and polishes skin for a delightful deep-clean treatment. Natural bamboo charcoal and kaolin clay help remove pollution and impurities, while natural silica beads gently refine texture.

Great to know: Allergy tested, 100% fragrance free, dermatologist tested.


As most of my regular readers know, I've a huge fan of charcoal skincare products--it does wonders for my skin! The most unique thing about this one is that it turns blue once dry and ready to be removed, which is in about 5 minutes time. Fast, easy and efficient--what more can you ask for, right?! My skin has been loving this every time I use it!





KEVYN AUCOIN Eyelash Curler ($21)

Create wonderfully curled lashes with this slim, professional quality eyelash curler. Its sleek, stainless steel frame provides a firm grip while its curved rubber pad bends lashes to perfection. Plus, you can turn the curler upside down and curl your bottom lashes for a Hollywood starlet look.

I have to say, I don't use eyelash curlers very often--they intimidate me so I usually just let a good mascara do the heavy lifting. However, I love the sleek, light design of this one and the pads feel so spongy and gentle that I might just give it a whirl!




BOBBI BROWN Sparkle Eye Shadow in Silver Moon ($33)

New featherweight formula that instantly lights up eyes with a unique combination of shimmering pearls and glitter in a translucent base. Creamy-soft powder shadow glides on smoothly and clings to lids for crease-free, long-lasting wear. The shadow pans feature clear protective covers and can be popped out of the compacts and inserted into Bobbi's custom palettes.


I'm a HUGE fan of the brand so I was very excited to see this included in the box! Unfortunately upon opening it, it had been smashed and loosened in transit--glitter everywhere! But oh such pretty glitter! The sparkle to this is insane and once I had fixed it with a little rubbing alcohol and smooshing action, it was ready for action! I can already tell you this is going to be used A LOT during the Holiday season!



MISSONI Eau de Toilette ($94 for 3.4 oz)

Fresh, radiant and sparkling. Like the ephemeral light of the earliest hours of the day, the new Eau de Toilette caresses the newfound Missoni woman, restoring her color and natural rhythm.

A delicate fragrance inspired by the unique, fleeting moment of daybreak, accompanies her movements and kindles her vivacious reawakening. A magical light bathes and illuminates the woman, who is reborn into the feminine sensuality innate to her being.

A citrus, floral and woody fragrance.

- Top notes: Blood Orange, Nashi Pear, Pink Berries
- Middle notes: Freesia, Peony, Rosewater Orpur
- Base notes: Heliotrope, White Cedar wood, Georgy wood


As a huge fragrance lover, I must say this was my favorite product in this box! This fragrance is just beautiful--a combination of refreshing fruitiness combined with an intoxicating floral bouquet, this has quickly become a huge favorite on my dresser, especially for daytime wear. This is a Bloomingdale's exclusive so definitely check it out!

  1. What an absolutely fabulous bonus box, you lucky girl! I would definitely enjoy it. I use Linkshare too, but I'm not making much money from it. I wonder if they have online presentation on how to get more from it. I'll take a look!
