Peaches and Petals August 2018 Box Review
Bubble Light Box - Retail Value $19.98
I love little gadgets like this one, and I especially love small, battery-operated lamps. They’re just a nice thing to have in a few places around the house, just to leave a light on for yourself if you know you’ll be back later at night. This is particularly fun since you can doodle or write yourself a quick note right on it - I think my husband and I will have fun leaving little notes for each other! It’s so cool that this came with not just one, but three markers in different colors.
I was so excited to see such a full-sized product in this box! I love lavender, but I was surprised upon first spray that the scent is really strong right as it’s applied! Thankfully, the smell doesn’t stay super-intense for very long, but rather, it dissipates and leaves just a faint lavender scent I can only detect when it’s right under my nose (excuse me, everyone, while I sniff my forearms like a weirdo). The lotion absorbs quickly and didn’t feel greasy on my hands, and instantly made my skin soft. It’s absolutely perfect for me to keep in the bathroom and do a quick spray on each leg after shaving. Hello, gorgeously-hydrated gams!
Coloring Journal - Estimated Value $6.99 (based on similar product)
It’s been a hot minute since I’ve received a coloring book, and I thought that this format was very interesting! I used to journal like a fiend as a teenager, but I got away from it as an adult. This might actually encourage me to write down some thoughts every night, and when my days get mega-stressful, I can just color for a bit instead.
Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm, Caramel Daisy - Retail Value $4.79
Another name-brand product! I love Burt’s Bees as a rule, but I find their lip balms to be among my favorite lip products. I don’t usually go for the tinted stuff, so this pleasingly gets me out of my comfort zone - especially the brown color, which I never normally wear! This was smooth to apply and while the tint is subtle, there is a slight difference. It could be my imagination (or the power of suggestion from the color), but I almost detect a sweet, cinnamon-y smell from it, too!
Verdict: I was really impressed with the overall value of this Peaches and Petals box, to be honest! The retail value of the bubble light alone was worth the $19.99 cost of the box (including free shipping), and when you add in the other three items, two of which were name-brand, it added up to a fantastic bang for the buck in my opinion. I was introduced to a new delivery method of lotion with the Kiss My Face product, I will always be able to use lip balm, and the lamp and journal will fit seamlessly into my home.
