Peachy Box May 2018 Review
This month, everything about feeling luxe, because we deserve it!
Peachy Box includes an info card with descriptions and values of the contents and the theme for the month. This month’s theme is “Luxe, because you deserve it”. A variety of products is included to make you feel fancy.
Peachy Box always includes some bonus items (not counted toward total value). This month they sent a promo code for 25 free square prints from Parabo Press and a code for the first month of a Beau Undies subscription for free. You do have to pay shipping for the undies. I ended up paying $3 shipping for the first month with this code. The undies certainly look luxe, so I’m excited to receive them.
Botanic Farm Soft Cover Pore Balm Primer, 20g – Retail Value $18 (Listed Value $38)
Oops, I think there was a typo on the info card in regards to the retail value of this product. This is a dimethicone based primer that comes in a stiff, balm formula. My recommendation is to scrape a little out and warm it on the back of your hand. Then, it smoothes on like silk to fill in pores and instantly blur skin. This helps my makeup glide on even over dry patches and even looks great on its own to blur shine and give skin a velvety texture. It doesn’t have the spreadability of a liquid primer so it might be best for spot priming areas that need the most smoothing.
The Innate Life Rose Hair Elixir, 30ml, 1oz – Retail Value $32
I like to work a hair oil into the ends of my dry waves for my 2nd and 3rd (maybe 4th) day hair. This oil smells like rosehip oil with a hint of spice and is made of 15 organic oils so it’s super nourishing. I’m so impressed that it sinks in instantly even when applied to skin. The glass bottle looks good on my vanity (we know that is important) and even has a dosed dropper. I think the price is on the high side but you only need a tiny bit at a time so it will last for a while.
Organicare 24k Gold Bath Bomb – Retail Value $10, Listed Value $12
I think this is the heaviest bath bomb I’ve ever held! It must be packed with all kinds of goodness! It smells like heaven – floral with notes of fruit and sandalwood – and gives bath water a gold shimmer. The ingredients are simple and soothing (as long as you’re not allergic to any, obviously) and it left my skin feeling comfortable and soft. I think I need one of those wooden bath trays since I’m loving spending more time relaxing in the bath lately.
Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream, 50ml – Estimated Value $25
I’ve read about this product before and reviews have been mixed. Everyone’s always attracted to the packaging, which is so cute. I mean, look at that tiny spatula! I’ve had a good experience with this moisturizer and my dry skin. The scent isn’t my favorite but it dissipates quickly. The consistency is like a gel-cream and instantly makes my skin feel hydrated and super smooth. It performs beautifully under makeup too. I don’t think it’s quite rich enough for winter but for warm, humid weather it is perfect for me.
Bee Lucia Lavender & Amethyst Candle, 7oz – Retail Value $24.95
Speaking of relaxing, a beautiful candle is included to fill your room with the scent of lavender and lemongrass. The top layer is sprinkled with amethyst crystal chunks to help ground and calm. Clean burning beewax and coconut oil make up this candle and help to clarify the air by releasing negative ions when burned.
Anita Ko Organics Cleansing Grains Sample Duo – Another Bonus Item (Not counted toward total value)
These are great size sample to introduce subscribers to these multi-tasking clay powders. You mix 1 tsp of the cleansing grains with water or a facial toner to form a paste that can be used as a cleanser or mask. They are unscented (they smell like clay) so they should be suitable for sensitive skin. These provide a deep clean and gentle exfoliation. I don’t think I can use them everyday but are perfect for when I want to take a little extra time for myself and need a skin clarifying treatment. Bonus – if you love them, the full-size price is pretty good on the Etsy store.
Verdict: Peachy Box’s “Luxe” is another beautiful, well-curated box. I love that there are items from different categories like home, skincare, beauty, and hair care that center around a theme. I’ve noticed a concentration on quality, natural products from US-based small businesses for several months and I love it. This is such a great gift subscription because it is beautifully packaged and thoughtfully curated with full-size products. I calculated a retail value of about $110 which is good for a cost of $34.99 with free shipping.
