Through my partnership with Rakuten Affiliate Marketing, I was lucky to receive one of Bloomingdale’s coveted beauty boxes. The last box I received was perfection, containing some of my favorite brands and products, but their most recent edition knocks that one out the park. Filled with 10 full sized best-sellers, I felt like a kid on Christmas morning opening this up. Keep reading to find out what was in this season’s Bloomingdales Bonus Box, and discover some cool new products along with me!
Viktor & Rolf BONBON Eau de Parfum
How adorable is this bottle?
Bloomingdales exclusively sells the Eau de Toilette version of Viktor and Rolf’s BonBon. With notes of soft caramel, grapefruit, pink sugar and crystalized jasmine, this perfume is light enough to wear everyday.
Top notes: grapefruit essential oil, tangerine essential oil, orange essential oil, blackcurrant
Middle notes: icing sugar accord, orange blossom absolute, sambac jasmine absolute, peach accord
Base notes: musks, guaiac wood essential oil, cedarwood essential oil, caramel accord
Guerlain Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum
I was spoiled with not 1 but 2 fragrances in this season’s Bloomingdales Bonus Box. I’m super picky when it comes to perfume and I surprisingly loved both of these. Mon Guerlain ended up being my favorite of the two, it’s exactly the type of scent I look for in a fragrance.
What is it: Mon Guerlain enhances raw materials: carla lavender from Provence, sambac jasmine from India, album sandalwood from Australia and vanilla tahitensis from Papua New Guinea. The chic “quadrilobe” bottle, created in 1908, has established itself as one of Guerlain’s iconic bottles.
Top notes: bergamot, carla lavender
Middle notes: paradisone, sambac jasmine, coumarin
Base notes: iris, vanilla tahitensis, album sandalwood
Kiehl’s Nourishing Shampoo + Conditioner
Kiehl’s is a brand that I’ve loved for years, and I keep a lot of their skincare in my kit. I was happy to see two products I’ve never used before, the Nourishing Shampoo + Conditioner and the Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque.
What is it: The Nourishing Shampoo + Conditioner is a two-in-one formula that gently removes buildup and hydrates the scalp. Infused with a woodsy blend of aromatic Cedarwood, Sandalwood and Eucalyptus essential oils, this formula leaves your scalp refreshingly clean and flake-free.
Kiehl’s Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque
What is it: Kiehl’s Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Mask is a calming gel mask that helps hydrate, soothe and relieve signs of distress. Caldendula is anti-inflammatory and it can affect blood flow to the skin cells, provide antioxidant protection and even reduce the visibility of scars. Formulated with handpicked Calendula flower petals and Aloe Vera, it gives your skin an instant cooling sensation upon application.
Wei Stress-Relieving & Express Glow Illuminating Face Masks
Wei is not a brand I’m familiar with but after doing a bit of research, it has me super intrigued. Wei is based on the principals of Chinese medicine, with balance being the key to optimum health and beauty. They’ve merged their holistic roots with modern day science to create some powerful products.
Both vials contain 1 sheet mask and they’re pretty pricey ($12 each). That’s getting up there with SKII status so I’m excited to see how these perform.
What is it: The Rice Sprout Express Glow Illuminating Mask features a potent, nutrient-rich formula which visibly reduces the appearance of dark spots for bright and glowing skin. Rich Rice Embryo contains proteins that help skin to retain moisture. Amino acids and flavonoids from Chinese Licorice work to improve skin’s clarity and strengthen its resilience. Vitamin C defends the skin from free radicals, illuminates a dull complexion and works to slow the signs of aging.
The Mung Bean Stress Relieving Mask exfoliates dull skin and removes skin-damaging pollutants and impurities from pores while restoring healthy sebum levels. Mung Bean Sprout offers powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties while supplying protein-rich moisture to the skin. Chinese Licorice Root helps heal skin ailments and blemishes. Cucumber extract soothes and hydrates.
Trish McEvoy Long-Wear Face & Eye Makeup Remover Skin Cleansing Water
I’ve yet to find a brand that compares to my holy grail makeup remover Bioderma (review here) but I’m always up for the challenge, and I love this minimalistic packaging.
What is it: Trish McEvoy’s gentle, one-step cleansing water is said to instantly remove all traces of even the most long-wear makeup formulations from the eyes, face and lips. The water-light, skin-conditioning formula leaves skin perfectly clean, balanced and ready for skincare.
Sisley Paris Phyto-Eye Twist
Because of their price point, Sisley Paris is a brand I’ve lusted over but don’t carry much of in my kit. This Phyto Eye looks right up my alley; I live for multipurpose crayons and it’s bronze, which is pretty much the only color I ever use.
What is it: The Phyto-Eye Twist is an all-in-one eye make-up solution: eye shadow + eyeliner. The gliding, waterproof texture allows for easy application and hold all day long.
PMD Personal Microderm Classic
The PMD Personal Microderm is the #1 product I’m most looking forward to trying out from the Bloomingdales Bonus Box. It seems a little intimidating to give yourself a microdermabrasion treatment at home, but the reviews are fantastic. I will definitely do a review/update on how this goes.
What it Is: The Personal Microderm combines the power of patented spinning disc technology with a calibrated vacuum suction to brighten, smooth, and even skin tone and texture. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, blemishes, and enlarged pores—allowing makeup to glide on smoother and skin care to penetrate deeper. The exfoliation action removes dead skin cells barrier and supports healthy, natural cell growth, revealing younger-looking, softer, rejuvenated skin.

Clinique Fresh Pressed 7 Day System With Vitamin C
Vitamin C is one of my top favorite anti-aging ingredients, I want it on my skin and in my body. Vitamin C degrades when exposed to oxygen so the thing I like about Clinique’s 7 Day System is that each day’s packets are individually wrapped, ensuring that you get the most potent application.
What is it: The Clinique 7 Day System is a simple, two-step system which contains pure 10% Vitamin C. Immediately notice brighter, more radiant skin. With continued use, see transformative de-aging results: skin that’s noticeably firmer, more even-toned, smoother, with visibly diminished lines and wrinkles and a radiant, youthful glow.
