The awesome folks at Peaches & Petals, a beauty and style monthly subscription graciously sent me their December box to review plus a fabulous coupon code for you, my even more fabulous readers. Use PEACHTHERAPY for 50% off your first month’s box! (Only valid on monthly subscriptions and not gift subscriptions).
Now we start with their lovely logoed box (is logoed actually a word?) and a #TreatYoSelf theme.
Who doesn’t love a treat?
Inside we reveal:
Kimono Style Silk Peacock Robe
Description: “Your GUARANTEED spoiler for December! A beautiful silky kimono style robe. Loune around in this soft and smooth robe while you pamper yourself. One size fits most.”
Verdict: One size fits medium sized people. That’s it. Not all. Never all.
This is a pretty robe, but no way does this “fit most”. It won’t fit super tall girls, tiny girls, chubbier girls and so on. It’s a medium at best. Luckily I have someone on my Christmas list that I think would really like this and actually fit into it. For a sub box, I’d rather see items that are less size specific – there are just too many folks who wouldn’t be able to use this.
Lindt Milk Chocolate Truffle Bar
Description: “Fancy something sweet and delectable? Sink your teeth into this piece of heaven.”
Verdict: Mmm, chocolate
This was perfectly timed since I had no food in the house and because it was Christmas time chocolate was a perfectly acceptable lunch. This was delicious!
Booth Lavender Mineral Bath Soak
Description: “Tough day? Pull yourself together with a bath infused with this addictive additive. Restore yours senses with the calming lavender scent.”
This fits perfectly with the “treat yorself” theme. I like lavender but unfortunately I don’t get to take too many baths and have quite a stockpile of products so I’m going to pass this along to my Mom who could use as many “calming” influences as possible.
Emerald Necklace & Earring Jewelry Set
Description: “Dazzle your holiday parties with this pair! It’s green and it goes with the season!”
I love the style of this necklace – it’s got a great Art Deco vibe and it’s not so showy that you can’t wear it with more casual outfits. The quality on this set is on par with what I’ve gotten from Modcloth or Charming Charlie and this is definitely my favorite item in the box.
Spa Bella Hot or Cold Rejuvenating Eye Mask
Description: “Say NO to dark circles and baggy eyes! The holidays are draining, but keep your look fresh and rejuvenated,’cause nobody has to know.”
I thought this was a perfect match for the robe so instead of keeping it for myself, I’ll be adding it to that for a Christmas gift.
I received this box for free for review purposes and its normal cost is $14.99. I think it had a great value for the cost. My only issue with it at all is that the peacock robe is quite size specific and would not fit a majority of the population. To Peaches & Petals credit, they released the kimono as a spoiler so folks who bought this box knew what they’d be getting. Last month’s felt a bit unfocused but this month the theme was super cohesive and I could see a lot of subscribers really loving this. If you’re looking for a low cost style box, definitely consider Peaches & Petals.
