The info card for this month gives a quick synopsis of what this box is all about. There’s some mention of the products inside, but it’s not in a list form like in other boxes. More importantly, there’s a recipe for a chocolatey cocktail on the back of the card! Yum!

Set of Two We Can Do It! Pint Glasses – Value $11.95

It’s hard to think of a more iconic, inspiring woman in art than Rosie the Riveter (though if I’m inspiring myself to chill the heck out, you know Mona Lisa is my girl…). I love the idea of adding these glasses to my cabinet. What a fun thing to use for a gals’ night in, or to help my morning smoothie feel even more empowering. I also really appreciate that this is a Smithsonian-approved, real glass set. The graphic might be a bit of a novelty, but the quality certainly isn’t.

Batiste Instant Hair Refresh Dry Shampoo, 1.6 fl oz. – Value $4.32 (Buy a 2 pack for $8.64)

This oily-haired gal loves a good dry shampoo, and Batiste is probably the best brand I’ve tried. This spray can is small enough to tuck into a purse or the side pocket of a backpack, and the formula has a breezy, pretty, floral scent. It’s tempting to want to douse your hair in this stuff, but a little actually goes a long way (in my experience). I spritzed a bit on my roots and gave it a quick brush through the rest of my hair. It starts out as a chalky-looking powder, but it becomes transparent as it absorbs into your ‘do. Plus, the fragrance makes me feel a bit fresher. I love riding my bike but dread my helmet-smushed, slightly sweaty hair (especially right now when it’s not long enough to pull back or easily pin into anything cute). So this product is so nice to have on hand.

On-the-Go Lunch/Salad Container with Separator Tray – Value $10.00?

I couldn’t find any branding on this container, so I just took a stab at the value I listed. I love containers like this—this one is kind of a hybrid between a standard salad-sized plastic container and a bento box. It’s the size of a big bowl and comes with a lid that snaps very securely on the sides. (It took some serious strength to unhinge ’em.) I love that there’s a fork that snaps right into the lid! So convenient. Inside, there’s a removable tray that you can use to hold fixins for the salad (or whatever else you might have) inside the bowl, or just other snacks. There’s also a small container for dressing that also pops into place on this inner green tray. I’m not sure if this guy is dishwasher or microwave safe (I’d bet not, based on the weight of the plastic), but it sure is handy. There’s no excuse not to bring a salad to the office, now!

Unibis Cashew Cookies, 5.29 oz – Value $1.43

Just this morning I got my first pumpkin spice latte of the season, and I’ll tell you what—the cashew cookie I ate along with it couldn’t have been a more perfect complement. These cookies are foil-wrapped for freshness, so they come out crisp, light, and crunchy. They go down like a lighter pecan cookie—there’s more crispy crunch, but the toasty, nutty, vanilla-tinged taste is the same. I’m starting to get very into cashews lately (I swapped cashew butter in for my usual peanut butter recently, and I don’t think I’ll ever go back), and I’m happy to say that in cookie form, these do-it-all nuts don’t disappoint!

Two Pairs of HEAD QWick-Dry Performance Socks – Value $10.00?

Surprisingly, I had a tough time finding these socks online. But based on the men’s HEAD socks I saw, I’m guessing that the cost of this two-pack of women’s wicking socks is about $10.00. These are a little cutesy, colorwise, for my taste, but boy do I love how they feel on my feet. They’re super sturdy and feel like they’ll last far longer than the usual bulk-bag ankle socks I wear to workout in. For how tough they feel, they’re actually really soft and comfy. The arches are reinforced with some kind of more plastic-y fiber (in other words, it feels more like polyester than cotton), but not in a way that’s uncomfortable at all. Fall runs, here I come!

Verdict: Peaches and Petals might just cost $20.00, but I was really happy with the almost $38.00 worth of products I received. I like that everything in the box was useful and aesthetically pretty or cute to look at, too! Of course, these might not be the items I pick out for myself at the store—I might choose a slightly high-quality salad container, I’d probably pick a more neutral color for socks, and I don’t know if I would’ve reached for the Rosie the Riveter glasses on my own. But I’m pretty sure I’ll be putting everything to use. It feels a lot like getting gifts at the holidays—I might not have had these items on my wishlist, but now that I have them, I’m pleasantly surprised!

What do you think of Peaches and Petals? Would you use these items?

  1. All the readers calling it the Dollar Store box are just soooooo mean and negative! This is at least a Big Lots box! /s

  2. Yeah I had bought one box from them earlier this year and only kept one thing, the rest I swapped or sold. That particular box didn’t include an info card and I actually had no idea what 2 of the items even were!!

    As for this box reviewed, my old job had these salad bowls for promos for our patients. We had our logos printed on them and they cost us about $5-6 each when ordered in a bulk of 100.

  3. Anna, I always love reading your reviews. I will be trying some cashew butter soon, thanks for the tip!

    I would enjoy using all of these items, and I sure couldn’t get them at any dollar stores in my area. I’d been wishing earlier in the year that there were a lifestyle box sort of like Pop Sugar or FabFitFun, but less expensive. If I’m getting $100 worth of assorted linens like throws and whatnot, I’d rather get three or four items, not one or two.

    • Thank you so much, Kimberly!!!!

  4. I’m shocked this box is still in business. $20 for dollar store items???? What a scam. Great review, terrible box.

  5. They must of shopped at our towns .99 cent store. Three of the contents are at my .99 cent store. The socks, the crackers, the container. Wow.

    • Lol!

    • wow! Wish they had head socks at my dollar store!

    • Aha! Thank you for gettin’ the scoop, Jamie!!! It’s nice to know this product is probably BPA-free!

  6. This is an improved box over previous months, but the “curation” with this box is just so random – I suspect it’s less intentional curation, more whatever-they-could-get-their-hands-on. That said, I had subscribed a few months last year, and received a few items I still use. It was just too inconsistent a sub for me to justify the $20 price.

    Just a small, friendly note for reviewers: “bento box” is redundant. Bento means box, so you’re saying “box box.” It’s like saying or writing “ATM machine.”

    (Obviously this isn’t the end of the world, but if you’re going to write publically and/or professionally, might as well know, right? 😌)

    • Actually, bento is a derivative of a term that means convenient.

      • Yes, I was wrong about the direct translation – I stand corrected. Still maintain bento box is redundant though

      • Sorry if my response sounded rude. I always feel like a jerk when offering up conflicting information.

        It’s not redundant where I live because bento is often served on plates, but I totally understand how in some locales it could seem redundant

        For example, I’m in Texas and lots of people order “queso cheese” at Tex-Mex restaurants.

    • Funny then how Japanese restaurants offer “bento boxes” on their menu. Bento also refers to a packed lunch – as in, the food itself, and the style in which it is packed (in compartments). So a “Bento Box” is a box that is designed with the intention of use for a Bento-style lunch. 🙂

      • I’m going on info from my father-in-law, born and raised in Japan. He makes the point about redundancy every time we go to a Japanese restaurant in North America, and he sees “bento boxes” on the menu.

    • Lol, like “PIN number” is saying number twice, or “Pairs” is a double plural!

  7. I got my box last week and I liked it.

  8. Gag, this sub has always sucked!

    • They should rename it the dollar-store sub.
      I appreciate the review but wow so much randomness thrown together when I can get better stuff for $5 at the dollar store. And I would never use unbranded plastic. Probably full of BPA?

      • Agreed!

      • Lol yup. Dollar store crap. No thanks.
