October 2015 Peaches and Petals Unboxing
I’d heard good things about Peaches and Petals and at a cost of only $14.99 per month, I decided to give it a shot. The fact that I had a coupon to get 50% off my first box made the box even more attractive.
The first item in the box was a tote bag from Elizabeth Arden. This is a cute tote with a water-resistant exterior. The lack of a zipper to seal the bag makes me question the usefulness of the exterior’s water resistance, but hey, it’s better than not having any water resistance at all. Here in California, the ability of the bag to resist water isn’t a big deal for me anyway. Overall, this seems like a fun bag to use and could be especially useful as a beach tote. The estimated value is $40, although the tag on the bag makes me believe it was a part of a free promotion at one point. Still, the bag certainly has inherent value and I think I’ll be able to put it to use.
The second item in the box was a magnetic postcard. It’s a small, but neat item to have. I’m planning to send it to one of my friends who enjoys receiving postcards. The estimated value is $3.
The third item was a bottle of Sally Hansen nail polish. The bottle was chipped, which bummed me out a bit, but the chip was superficial and didn’t affect the bottle’s contents. I like the color, although it’s a bit too extreme for my profession. I think women who aren’t in careers where they need to dress conservatively will enjoy using the nail polish. The estimated value is $4.
The fourth item was a trio of Smashbox eyeshadows. Smashbox cosmetics are highly praised, so I’m happy to have received these. I also appreciate the conservative colors, which will make them more appropriate for me to use. To be clear, though, I don’t think all of the items need to be conservative; it’s just what fits better for me. This eyeshadow trio is worth $28.
The fifth and final item in the box was a jar of Barielle Pro Essentials Skin Care Moisturizing Day Cream. The jar looked very impressive and I appreciated receiving a full-size product versus a sample. The estimated value of the jar is $15.
Overall, this box contained about $90 worth of products. I paid only $7.49 for the box, so I was more than happy with what I’d received. Even at the normal price of $14.99 per month, Peaches and Petals still seems to be a great value. If you enjoy the types of products included in the box, I think you’ll have good experiences with Peaches and Petals.
