December 2016 Peaches & Petals Unboxing + Promo Code

Last month, we only got a theme as the spoiler for December’s Peaches & Petals box, which is Jingle & Mingle 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.

Westinghouse Wax Free Fragrance Warmer & Fragrance Disks This is really nice!  I have wax warmers and yes, they can get messy and I worry about burning with the hot plate.  This uses fragrance disks, instead of wax, allowing you to enjoy the aroma without the messy cleanup afterwards.  It has a little plate on the bottom of the unit and all you do is remove it from the warmer, place the  non-toxic disk on top of the warmer and insert back into the unit.  Plug in and instant aromatherapy!  Plus this has a little LED light that fliers, so it gives off a nice ambiance. 

The warmer I received in is a dark charcoal grey with a fleur-de-lis embossed on the surface, measuring about 4 x 4 inches.  This warmer was a variation, so yours might look different.  I love grey, so I am very pleased with this.  I do really like this a lot ~ I have lots of candles but there are times when I want an item that doesn’t actually burn ~ if I am having a party, I don’t want to worry if someone is  going to knock over a candle and cause a mess or worse.  This comes with a vanilla scented disk

Description: Westinghouse wax-free warmers combine fashion with innovation. Using LED technology, this item is unlike any fragrance warmer in the market today. The safe to touch warming plate combined with non-toxic fragrance disk emits a delightful aroma accompanied by an ambient flickering glow from the LED bulb. With stylish ceramic colors and patterns to choose from, and easy to change fragrance disks, this warmer is a great accent to any decor. Set includes ceramic, standard size plug-in warmer and one fragrance disk.

I also received 2 extra warming disks, both in a Sun-Dried Linen sent, which is very fresh and spring like.  The warming disks are made from a patented polymer material that doesn’t not melt and last over 50 hours.  These disks were a variation, so you could have received other scents.  Warmer RV $17.99  Warming Disks RV $4.99 x 2

Manna Kadar Lip Locked Priming Gloss Stain in Lucky  Manna Kadar is a celebrity makeup artist that created her own line of fun and wearable cosmetics.  This is very pretty nude petal pink shade with a doe foot applicator and it is very glossy ~ but it does leave behind a stain if it wears off.  This stain is a lip primer, gloss and stain and the color is very pigmented.  Since this has a built-in primer, it is supposed to last for hours on your lips.. This has vitamin E, along with aloe extracts, which will keep your lips moisturized and nourished.   I love the stain more than the glossy look, so to achieve that, I will just blot the gloss and have a beautiful satin stain left behind.  If you want a matte finish, just take some finishing powder and gently apply over the gloss.  Full Size .18 oz RV $24.00

Sourcebooks 2017 Keep Calm and Color On Calendar  This is really fun!  This is a daily, tear-off page desk calendar and each day as a part of a design that you can easily color in.  Sometimes when I am on the phone at work, I doodle (who doesn’t?) and this is another way to channel my doodling by coloring in these mandala inspired designs.  Very cool idea and I will have to get some nice color pencils for this.  RV $14.99 (but you can purchase this at lower prices)

Description: Every day is a clean slate, literally a new page to color in the morning or at the end of the day to shake off stress and relax. Each page features a beautiful print with intricate design that you can color and make your own depending on your mood, creativity level, and your schedule. Like what you’ve created? Pull the page out and frame or pass along to someone else as a note card. At the end of the year you’ll get to look back and contemplate the colorful journey you’ve been on.

Winebottle Ugly Christmas Sweater & Hat  When I first opened my box and saw this ~ I thought, what, a sweater for a chihuahua?  And it is ugly! haha  Nope, this is a sweater for your wine bottles and in my case, beer bottles!! I didn’t have any wine hanging around, so I used one of my taller beer bottles to show how it looks all dressed up. This is a conversation piece, that is for sure! Just slip on the sweater over the bottle and place the hat on the top. RV $6.50

Gonna dress you up in my love…

Faux Gemstone Earrings  This was my “Surprise Jingle-Y and Mingle-Y Item” and I have to say I LOVE THESE!  Yes, they are faux and mass produced, but they have an artisan crafted look about them.  These fake gems have a huge faceted citrine as the focal point and then it is surrounded by a light blue Swiss topaz,a deep London Blue topaz, abalone shell, marcasite, a clear gem and back to London Blue topaz.  These have a drop of a little over 1 inch on a silver-tone metal.  If you have short hair, the backs of these are finished off very nicely ~ it has a “bark” texture that has been oxidized.  RV $7.00

I wasn’t sure about the Jingle & Mingle theme, but I have to say I really enjoyed this month’s box.   I love my fragrance warmer and the lip gloss, the coloring calendar is really a cool idea and those earrings are fantastic!  They might be cheapo earrings, but I love the colors and design.  Even the ugly wine bottle sweater will get a few laughs this season.  Great job this month!  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 over $81.00 in retail value.  Many thanks to Miranda for sending me this box to review ~ I always look forward to seeing what P&P puts in their boxes!
