Peaches and Petals April 2018 Box Review
Peaches and Petals doesn't come with an info card about the items, but I did receive this card with 2 codes for Pet Treater and 13 Deals which are other companies by Jammin' Butter (who owns Peaches & Petals).
Let's see the glorious randomness that came this month!
Boston International Slate Starfish Cheeseboard and Spreader - Retail Value $15.99
I love cheese and although I can appreciate receiving a slate cheeseboard with a matching spreader, the silver starfish motif isn't my style. I was impressed that the slate made it one piece, but it does also look like it has some rust on it somehow. Perhaps it got damp in a warehouse at one point? Unless that is just how slate is sometimes, I'm just not sure. The seven-inch squared cheeseboard is quite heavy and the 4.5-inch starfish spreader seems to be a decent quality, so if you like beachy serving items, this would be a great win for you!
Petal Fresh Soothing Facial Wipes in Aloe Vera - Retail Value $6.59
These aren't actually marked as makeup remover wipes on the front of the package, but the directions do say to use it to remove makeup, dirt, and oil from your face. I am a user of makeup wipes, so every time I receive a package of them in a box, it means that is one less package I have to buy at the store. This particular kind includes aloe vera extract which has vitamins C + E that soothes the skin.
Body Luxuries Spa Bath Pillow - Retail Value $9.99
I've become quite a bath taker these days and sometimes wish I had a pillow like this to rest my head on, so I was pretty delighted to see this in the box. When laid flat, the deflated plastic pillow is 15.5 inches wide by 13 inches high and has scalloped edges. One side of the pillow is covered with a thin soft terrycloth and the other has four suction cups to affix it to the tub to prevent sliding around. I haven't gotten a chance to use this yet, but I'm always wary of suction cups because they never seem to stay stuck for me.
Organic Golden Coconut Sugar, 1 lb. - Retail Value $6.00
I rarely use sugar at home because I don't do a lot of baking and drink my coffee black, but I am intrigued by this sugar substitute because I love all things coconut. It says right on the bag that you use it the exact same way you'd use cane sugar, so there's no guesswork. Right away this reminds me of brown sugar, probably because of its golden brown color, but it also tastes sort of like maple. The ingredients say its "certified organic fair trade granulated coconut blossom nectar" so maybe that's what it is. How interesting! This certainly has a much different taste than the average cane sugar but I'd love to try it with the chocolate chip cookie recipe on the back. Yum!
Occasionally Made Lobster Mason Jar Lid Coaster - Estimated Retail Value $17.95 (linked to similar item)
The last item I can appreciate because I use coasters at home to prevent watermarks on my vintage coffee table. Cork has to be the best material for coasters in my opinion because it will absorb any wetness that a cold drink leaves behind. This set comes with four "mason jar lid" coasters which are just how they sound. Each one is a seemingly galvanized metal like the ones you'd find on an old jar and the inside has a cork lining with a red lobster design to keep your drinkware from ruining furniture. The lip of each coaster is 3/4 of an inch high so there is no chance of condensation sliding off. Sadly, these lobsters are also not my style, so I'm going to try and pass them on to someone who'd enjoy them more.
The Verdict: For $19.99, Peaches and Petals sent me a hodgepodge of random items that were (and always will be) hit or miss. The dollar value is undeniable seeing as though I received five items with a retail value of an estimated $56.52. On a personal level though, 2 of the 5 items I could do without so I'd have to be comfortable paying under $20.00 for the sugar, wipes, and pillow (which still seems like a pretty good deal).
