June 2017 Peaches & Petals Unboxing + Promo Code

[ disclosure: product received for review purposes. contains affiliate links ]

June Peaches & Petals didn’t come until this past weekend in July!!  It ran a bit late ~ but I am pretty happy with the box, so good things for those who have patience, I guess!  The theme this month is “Summer Lovin’”   Peaches & Petals is a subscription service that is focused on lifestyle and beauty products.  From their website  “Experience our world of fun, flirty and fashionable vintage-modern lifestyle in a hand-curated box delivered to you each month”  This box was sent to me for review purposes from Peaches & Petals and I thank them for their generosity as always 🙂  I am always appreciative of companies who look for honest feedback on their services.

Informational Card

Explanation on valuing products:  Since Peaches & Petals does not give a value on their products,  I normally will use the Retail Value from the vendor’s site or an average if I find the product on multiple sites with varying prices.  Subscription boxes are usually basing their value on Retail Value, not Markdown or Sale Values.  With that in mind, you can usually find products for less, just like anything else in the marketplace.

Hard Candy Fox in a Box Blush in Truth or Dare  This is actually quite adorable!  I love this type of packaging ~ reminds me of  The Benefit’s Dandelion collection.   This is a blusher/bronzer set which has a soft cool pink and soft bronze-brown ~ both of which have a very slight shimmer to them. 

It is not a glitter bomb, but a nice subtle glow.  Both colors are very soft and I actually like swirling them together, as it does give my skin a nice flush with a bronzy glow, for a sun-kissed look.  If I use them alone, it is too light for me.  The brush is useless, however ~ I wish companies would stop packaging these types of brushes that people just toss out ~ such a waste of materials.  I quite like this and think it is a nice daily blusher.  This product looks to be discontinued but you can still find it on places like Amazon and eBay.   5.7 g RV $8.75

Ingredients: Talc, Mica, Mineral Oil, Propylparaben, Methylparaben, Tocopheryl Acetate May Contain/ PEUT CONTENIR (+/-): Titanium Dioxide (CI77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI77492, CI77499), Red 6 Lake (CI 15850), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Red 27 Lake (CI45410), Red 40 Lake (CI16035), Yellow 5 Lake(CI 19140), Ultramarines (CI 77007).

Babo Botanicals SPF 30 Clear Zinc Sport Stick Sunscreen – Summer Scent  I have come to enjoy my sunscreens in a stick ~ easy to toss in my purse, easy to apply and I use them on my hands and arms, front and back of my neck, even my legs.  I rarely use them on my face, unless I am at the beach, hiking or some outdoor activity where I am not wearing makeup.  This eco-friendly, organic and cruelty free sunscreen is a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sport stick.  It is good for children and extra sensitive skin and has a clear, non greasy hypoallergenic formula, made from pure flower and plant extracts.  It does contain zinc, as well as certified organic oils ~ jojoba, rice bran, avocado, tamanu along with shea and cocoa butters.  This is water and sweat resistant for up to 80 minutes.   This is free from gluten, dairy, soy, peanuts, almonds, walnuts, SLS, sulfates, parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, dyes, sodium chloride, formaldehyde, MEA, DEA, TEA and most common allergens and comes packaged in a recyclable BPA-free tube.  It does contain tree nuts and is not vegan because it does contain beeswax. I am loving that Peaches and Petals is putting more eco-friendly, organic brands in their boxes!  .6 oz  RV $12.95  Promo Code:  Save 25% Off  at Babo Botanicals with  HELLO25‎

Foster Grant Lux 5 Sunglasses  Along with sunscreen, you need sunglasses!  They help prevent you from squinting and also added protection from the rays ~ these Foster Grant sunglasses have 100% MaxBlock Lens Protection from UVA/UVB rays, so your skin and eyes will be protected.  These are a nice oversized frame with a polarized gray gradient lens and fun rhinestones around the sides of the frames ~ they came in a nice cloth sleeve so they could be stored away. 

Each Peaches and Petals box could have a variation of the style and brand, and I am really happy with my selection!  I love the oversized lens  ~  52 mm x 50 mm ~ and it is in a great color ~ black!   RV $19.99

NPW Beauty Junky Use Me Once Beauty Boost  I am totally unfamiliar with this brand, so I had to do a bit of research.  This is a trio of mask products ~ a Cucumber Hand Cream, Paw Paw & Pomegranate Face Mask and Almond Hair Mask ~ that are travel friendly and one time use pods. These comes in really cute colorful pod packs and these are supposed to

  • Cucumber hand cream helps soften your hands ~ this has deep moisturizing mineral oil and botanical oils of macadamia, soybean, jojoba and avocado, with soothing cucumber, bisabolol and chamomile extracts. This does have papain, which is a natural exfoliator as well, keeping your hands soft and smooth.
  • Paw Paw & Pomegranate face mask refreshes your skin ~ this is a wash off clay mask pack, as it contains oil absorbing and detoxing kaolin.
  • Almond hair mask helps lock in moisture and replenishes your hair ~ this wash off deep mask pack for your hair that contains jojoba and almond oil, along with vitamins E and B5 to help moisturize and smooth

NPW is a London based brand and I did find them on the ever popular Boots website.  3 x 10 mL pods RV $9.00

Mermaid Magic Sequin Pillow  This is such a cool pillow!  This was another variation in the box, and I received the Mermaid version in a beautiful deep aqua/teal ~ the front of the pillow is full of sequins that when you move your hand over them, they flip to a deep gray.  You can create designs or write messages!  The backing of this 16 x 16 inch throw pillow is a bright aqua velvet and this pillow stuffed with a soft plush fill, so it is so soft and cushy.  This is so cool and I love it!  RV $15.00

 

Final Thoughts

This is such a fun box and I really am enjoying all of the items!  I haven’t tried the NPW pods yet, as I want to save those for travel but the other items I have already put in use!  I totally love the Mermaid pillow (it is calming to rub my hands over it ~ lol) and the sunglasses have been my go-to pair since I got them.  I love the blush too ~ very nice and summery, giving my skin a flushed glow. And having another eco-friendly brand in here is fantastic and I hope Peaches continues to source those types of vendors. Peaches & Petals monthly subscription boxes are $19.99 a month and that includes shipping.   This month, the box looks to be of  a retail value almost $66.00.  Many thanks to Peaches & Petals to sending this me for review purposes ~ I always look forward to seeing what P&P puts in their boxes! Did you receive this month’s Peaches & Petals box?  What was your favorite item and what do you think of it?  The board and travel pillow are mine!
