Pet Treater Subscription January 2016 Box Review

Squeezing in one last January box review before it’s officially February! Pet Treater is another new subscription that I started in 2015, and I signed up because I was curious about all the new pet subscriptions popping up. Up until I got this subscription, the only pet box I had ever tried was BarkBox (which I love, by the way), so I wanted to get another one for comparison. Needless to say, my dog is now even more spoiled than she was before. And she was pretty darn spoiled to begin with.

Pet Treater is a dog subscription box that sends out treats, toys, and various gadgets and gizmos. They don’t give a specific value for each box and the website states that “each box typically contains a yummy treat for your pup, and usually an interactive toy as well”. It costs $24.99/month, and it’s less if you sign up for a longer subscription. A whole year brings the cost of each box down to only $19.99!

Pet Treater Subscription January 2016 Box Review

Each time I get a shipment I am so impressed with the size and quality of the box itself. If you’re thinking about gifting a dog box, this is a great one to choose! The packaging is cheerful and so much fun for Maddie to “help” me go through the contents. Every month also comes with an envelope addressed to my dog with a cute letter inside. The letters have been funny and thoughtful, and adds just a little something special to the box.

Nerf Dog Tuff Tug Infinity Tug Football | $9.43
Since Maddie is a heavy chewer and tears through plush toys like tissue paper, any time I get a sturdy rubber toy it’s a win. She also loves to play tug so I would consider it a double win. I had no idea Nerf made dog toys, but now that I’ve looked it up I’m tempted to buy more. They all seem really durable and have good reviews. This football one is a great multi-purpose toy. I can throw it, play tug, and when my arm gets tired she even likes just gnawing on the rubber football by herself.

Pet TrePet Treater Subscription January 2016 Box Reviewater Subscription January 2016 Box Review

She wasn’t the best at tugging on the football (left photo), I think she gets a better mouth grip on the nylon part. She’s a 46 lb dog but on the smaller side of that weight, so I think the football is actually a tad too big for her mouth to get a firm grip. But she loves chewing on it and chasing after it.

Pet Treater Subscription January 2016 Box Review

Exclusively Dog Jerkeez Pizza Flavor | $9.99
A new-to-me brand, these dog treats were a hit with Maddie. Though to be perfectly fair, she’s not picky about her treats. The jerky has ridges so you can tear them easily into smaller pieces, which I thought was kind of clever. These are wheat, corn, and soy free, and made in the USA. The ingredients list is longer than I would like, with lots of preservatives and glycerin, so I doubt I will be repurchasing.

Pet Treater Subscription January 2016 Box Review

Mr. Bill Multipet Plush Dog Toy | $6.99
This thing is hilarious. There’s a soundbox inside and the toy goes “Oh nooo” when pressed. I didn’t actually think my dog would like this, but I was very very mistaken. She went nuts for it. Despite her initial surprise that this toy made such a weird sound, she managed to rip through it in about 45 minutes. She then carried around the stuffing-less plush casing to play with. I’m not exactly sure what about this toy makes it so popular with pets (it has over 1200 reviews on Amazon!) but I know I would repurchase.

Pet Treater Subscription January 2016 Box Review

Picture on the left is her face when it first went “oh nooo” and picture on the right is about 2 seconds afterwards. No mercy.

Pet Treater Subscription January 2016 Box Review

Your Pet Chef No Guilt Treats (2 bags) | $15.00
This company has a really interesting concept. They sell made-to-order and customized meals for your pets, and also offer custom treats. You can choose the ingredients and they tailor it to fit your pet’s weight. I’m guessing Pet Treater ordered these custom bags for their customers. I love that the ingredients list is so simple: ground chicken, cucumber, radish, and kale. I also love that it’s all human-grade ingredients and made in the USA.

Pet Treater Subscription January 2016 Box Review

Nylabone Fun ‘N’ Fit Treat Holder Wobbler Chew Toy | $9.99
Yay, another durable toy! Maddie loves treat holder toys and can spend all day chewing on them. This one has interesting textures for her, which I love because it’s fantastic for her teeth. The toy fits chews, kibble, and treats down the middle, and you can put peanut butter in the grooved side pockets.

Pet Treater Subscription January 2016 Box Review

Unique Petz Treat Launcher | $14.99
I don’t really understand this gadget. It does propel the treats a few feet, but I could also throw it just as far, if not further. It makes a really loud noise when you fire, which could definitely scare your pet. Maddie was pretty alarmed and was unable to keep track of her treats because this thing fires it really fast and high. It can only hold small training sized treats, which makes it even harder for her to follow. It took me a good amount of time to load the launder and continue unjamming the launcher when the treats would get stuck, and would have been way easier if I just threw the treats by hand.

Pet Treater Subscription January 2016 Box Review

Salad Container | $3.00 (?)
Every month comes with an item for you as well, and they seem to be pretty random. So far I have received an oven mitt and a pack of dog-themed Christmas cards. This month it seems to be a salad container, complete with plastic fork and salad dressing container that snaps onto the top. Not really sure why it was included, but I’ve been using it to store Maddie’s opened bags of treats.

Pet Treater Subscription January 2016 Box Review

Overall I think it was a great month. The estimated value comes out to $69.39, almost triple the cost of the box. We got 3 toys that she loves, as well as two bags of treats that I would repurchase. Even with the items that we won’t use, it was absolutely worth the cost and then some. I have been very satisfied with my subscription thus far.

Compared to BarkBox, I would say this box is less curated and more focused on saving money on treats and toys. Most of the items can be found in your typical Petsmart/Petco, and you’re just getting it at a reduced rate. I have really been enjoying my dual subscription to both Pet Treater and BarkBox. I love getting the exclusive (and adorable!) toys from BarkBox, as well as the very high quality treats. I also love getting tried and true toys from brands like Nylabone from Pet Treater.

One thing about Pet Treater that I would change: I wish they would just cut out the item for the human. It seems unnecessary and doesn’t add anything to the box. If anything it just leaves me kind of confused each month because it’s so random. I would love to see them put that value towards a chew or cookie or something for my dog. After all, I already get enough goodies from my subscription boxes. This one is supposed to pamper my dog, not me!

Beauty DNA January 2016 Box Review

I have been subscribed to Beauty DNA since August 2015 and it very quickly became one of my favorite subscriptions. I gifted a few subscriptions to friends for Christmas, and they have also received their first matches this week. I’ve been getting tons of positive feedback and everyone is so excited about the products that they were matched to!

Beauty DNA is a monthly subscription service that sends you one full sized beauty item based on your profile. When you first sign up, you fill out a detailed profile on your preferences, and the experts at Beauty DNA will match you with a product that they think works best for you. For $25/month, you’ll receive an item from one of three categories: skincare, hair products, and body. Usually they alternate what category you receive between months, so you won’t end up getting several products of the same type consecutively.

Beauty DNA January 2016 Box Review

Even though their packaging is plain, I had no doubt in my mind this subscription would make a great gift. My friends were all impressed with their matches and the level of personalization this subscription offers.

Beauty DNA January 2016 Box Review

Each box comes with a personalized card that has information about the product match and why it’s perfect for you. I really like that it gives me directions, ingredients, benefits, retail value, and where I can re-purchase all on one easy to read page. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve received something and had no idea what it even was, much less how to use it! (My favorite was the time I got a liquid highlighter and I thought it was nail polish…) You definitely will not have that problem with this subscription. The information card is useful and I have kept all of mine.

Beauty DNA January 2016 Box Review

The other side of the card has a detailed explanation for why the product was chosen for you this month. The bold words are direct matches to keywords from your profile. I really like that the card tells me exactly how I ended up with what I got, and helps me keep track of what is and isn’t accurate in my profile. If I really love a product, I know which key ingredients or benefits to ask for more of in the future. If I didn’t like a product, I know what words I might want to change. For instance, if this was not effective for me, I might want to reconsider asking for products with vitamin C and antioxidants. Or if it didn’t provide enough moisture, I might ask for less lightweight serums and more heavy creams.

Beauty DNA January 2016 Box Review

Miracle Skin Transformer Vanish Instant Imperfection Corrector | $58.00
I didn’t know anything about this brand (and the name sounded really gimmicky), so I did a quick Google search to learn a bit more. Turns out it’s actually sold at some of my favorite stores: Nordstrom, Birchbox, Ulta, and more. And it has great reviews! It’s supposed to reduce fine lines, reduce pore size, brighten skin tone, and smooth out skin texture – all of which I requested in my profile! If one product can really do all of that, I would be very impressed.

Beauty DNA January 2016 Box Review

The texture feels really good on my skin, it goes on very smooth and silky. It leaves a semi matte finish and works well as primer. When I put my foundation on, my pores do look smaller and less noticeable. I haven’t noticed any long term effects yet, but I love the concept of a skin treatment combined with a primer. It just makes sense!

Beauty DNA January 2016 Box Review

I’m happy with what I received, even though the value isn’t as high as some of my previous boxes. I got a $58.00 full sized product that fit my profile well, and discovered a new brand that I knew nothing about. When it comes to skincare, I think it’s so important to get a substantially sized product to try out. Small samples just don’t cut it, because you need to use a product for an extended period of time to really get results and know how your skin will react. With BeautyDNA, you get to try full sized skincare for a fraction of the retail cost.

I think another big value here is discovering new products and brands that work with your skin type. I’ve found products that I LOVE and repurchase regularly, all thanks to BeautyDNA. Products that I’m sure I would not have tried on my own. The profile takes into account a big list of ingredients and scent preferences, so it can really give you an accurate guess on what will work best for you. I am always so excited to see what my match is for each month, and have never gotten a product that I dislike yet. Knock on wood, let’s hope this trend continues for me!

Barkbox January 2016 Review plus Free Box

I feel like I don’t have enough pictures of my dog on this blog yet, so I’m reviewing my January Barkbox subscription!

BarkBox is $29/month if you do the month-to-month plan, but it goes down to only $18/month if you sign up for the whole year! We’ve been subscribed for a year and recently renewed for a whole year since it was such a great deal. Before getting BarkBox we were probably dropping between $30 to $50 a month at pet stores, and now the box usually lasts us through the month. You can use my link to get a free Barkbox added to any subscription, or use my referral code HOARDING. And if you use my link/referral code, they’ll donate a free box to the Bark-N-Rest Retirement Center! It’s a great cause and I’m pleased that BarkBox gives back to the doggie community!

You can choose different sizes when you order, and we get the Large box (for dogs over 50 lbs). Even though Maddie is about 46 lbs, she has the energy and strength of a much larger dog so we always size up for toys. BarkBox has a theme for each month that I look forward to seeing every month. This month it was “Peach, Ruv, Happiness”.

Aussie Naturals Krinkle Pants Large | $12.00
I laughed really hard when I pulled this out of the box. It’s so cute and hilarious! The pant legs are stuffed with water bottles and crinkle material, and the pants are made with 100% cotton. All the materials are eco-friendly and the bottles are recycled. As it turns out, my dog isn’t really interested in water bottle toys. She’s usually not picky about her toys at all, but there was no interest from her for this one.

Barkbox January 2016 Review plus 10% Off Code

She seemed more inclined in using the toy as a pillow than actually playing with it. Oh well, I was bound to get a dud sooner or later. According to BarkBox’s “Scout’s Honor” policy, I could get a different toy sent to me free of charge if I emailed them. I’ve used this policy before and I know their customer service is fantastic about responding. But I think I will donate this toy to a local shelter since it wasn’t used at all.

Barkbox January 2016 Review plus 10% Off Code

Ziggy’s Disco Fries | $9.00
Maddie loved these treats and even though she’s not a picky eater, I can always tell when she REALLY likes a treat. In this case, she did all her tricks perfectly and followed me around (with a very hopeful expression) for about an hour after I fed her one. I hope the BarkShop keeps these in stock, I would love to buy more in the future! They’re allergy friendly and have a short ingredients list: ground peas, chickpea flour, ground flaxseed, tapioca starch, canola oil, sweet potato, and cheese.

Barkbox January 2016 Review plus 10% Off Code

Etta Says! Crunchy Elk Chews | $3.00
Each box comes with one chew, and Etta Says! seems to be the most popular brand. We have a nice little stash of Etta Says! chews and Maddie really likes them. I try to keep extras on hand to distract Maddie with when I’m clipping her nails or cleaning her ears. All their chews are made in the US with no artificial fillers or preservatives.

Barkbox January 2016 Review plus 10% Off Code

Loving Pets Ducky Tenders | $8.00 (?)
I like that BarkBox is always able to obtain custom-made toys and treats for their subscribers. In this case, these treats are made by Loving Pets but are packaged for BarkBox in this really cute packaging. These duck tenders are 100% farmed and made in the US, and have only 6 ingredients: duck, turkey, vegetable glycerin preserved with tocopherols, rosemary extract, and natural smoke flavoring.

Barkbox January 2016 Review plus 10% Off Code

Rockstar Guitar | $12.00
And speaking of custom toys, check out this awesome guitar! It’s got multiple squeakers in it (Maddie’s favorite!) and is made with a durable material and stitched in small sections. It’s really nice that the squeakers are kept separate, so when she (inevitably) shreds one part, not all the squeakers are compromised. It’s designed well for chewers and at 20 inches long, is a good size for my dog.

Barkbox January 2016 Review plus 10% Off Code

I managed to get her to stop playing for a few seconds with one of the Ziggy Waffle treats to grab this picture!

Barkbox January 2016 Review plus 10% Off Code

I received about $44.00 worth of products in my box, which I am very satisfied with. It’s fun to discover new toys and treats that she loves and the themes are super cute and fun.

Even though one of the toys from this month doesn’t interest my dog, it won’t go to waste. But if you’re worried about your dog not liking any of the toys, you can always make good use of the “Scout’s Honor” policy! Just email BarkBox’s customer service and they will provide you with a different toy from their “Tried and True Collection”, free of charge. When I used this policy in the past, their customer service team was quick to respond, very kind and helpful, and even made a note on my account that my dog was a heavy chewer. I was genuinely impressed and think it’s a wonderful policy to have in place. Every month I’m excited to see what the theme will be and can’t wait for February’s!

 

Peaches and Petals January 2016 Box Review plus 50% Off Promo Code

I reviewed my first Peaches and Petals box last month and thoroughly enjoyed it, so I was very happy when they offered me a January box to review as well! They are the most affordable box that sends out a combination of lifestyle, fashion, and beauty goods, and I think they do a good job of curating about the themes for each month.

Peaches and Petals is a monthly subscription service that sends out vintage-modern items and beauty goods. They recently changed their pricing. It used to be $14.99, but now it’s $19.99 a month (includes shipping). Current subscribers will keep the old pricing until March. I’m guessing the price increase will also bring higher value boxes and new brands. Each month, you’ll receive a mix of jewelry, fashion accessories, lifestyle goods, and beauty samples. They feature a different theme every month, and January is “No Time Like The Present” and seems to be very travel/adventure oriented. Seems very fitting for January!

Peaches and Petals January 2016 Box Review plus 50% Off Promo Code

Hamilton Beach Fruit Infuser Bottle | $12.99 (?)
I couldn’t find this exact product online, but similar models can be found for around $10 – $15 on Amazon. I like that this one is BPA free, and has a soft silicon grip on it. I have a few infuser bottles already, but could always use more! I’m totally addicted to infused water and love trying new combinations. Cucumber and lavender is my latest obsession.

Peaches and Petals January 2016 Box Review plus 50% Off Promo Code

There’s a removable cylindrical basket that you fill with fruit and it fits in the bottle with a strainer lid.

Peaches and Petals January 2016 Box Review plus 50% Off Promo Code

You can take out the basket completely and still use it as a regular water bottle.

Kikkerland Selfie Stick | $10.00
I was pleasantly surprised to see this in the box. A selfie stick is one of those things that I keep reminding myself to buy, but never actually get around to purchasing. I’m going on vacation in June so this will be a really nice accessory to have. I hate having to bother other people to take photos for me!

Peaches and Petals January 2016 Box Review plus 50% Off Promo Code

It fits my iPhone 6 and it took pictures without having to install an app or anything. It was very easy and simple to use. The stick extends to a pretty long length (about 36 inches) and collapses to just 8 inches and fits easily into a purse. I need to work on my selfie game though, my pictures were all blurry since my hands are too shaky! I imagine over time they’ll get better as I get more accustomed to the stick.

Peaches and Petals January 2016 Box Review plus 50% Off Promo Code

Adventure Jewelry | $3.00 (?)
This bangle bracelet is really cute and I like the concept. Dainty gold jewelry is always my absolute favorite. I’m estimating a low value based on how flimsy the bracelet feels and the slight discoloration on the plane and cloud, which is a shame because I really like the style.

Peaches and Petals January 2016 Box Review plus 50% Off Promo Code

Unfortunately, it’s way too big for me. And since the metal is so thin and flexible, there’s no way for it to stay on my wrist even if I mold it into a smaller size.

Peaches and Petals January 2016 Box Review plus 50% Off Promo Code

I can get the plane and cloud to sort of latch onto each other, which keeps the bracelet closed. But as a result it’s not as cute and still isn’t very sturdy. I feel like if I wore it around for more than a few minutes I would be really worried about it falling off.

FamilyCircle Healthy Home-Style Cooking | $5.95
The original listing price is $34.96, but can be found on Amazon for $5.95. At first glance, it definitely has the look of a dated cookbook and doesn’t really inspire me to flip it open and try the recipes…

Peaches and Petals January 2016 Box Review plus 50% Off Promo Code

But when I opened it, I thought the recipes looked and sounded delicious and found several that I definitely plan to try. The ingredients and instructions are very clear, each recipe comes with a photo, and most of them appear to be very doable for a beginner level cook. It’s a shame that the cover doesn’t reflect the contents of the cookbook!

Peaches and Petals January 2016 Box Review plus 50% Off Promo Code

Inspirational Decal | $0.50
I like this Peter Pan quote quite a bit and think it’s appropriate for this month’s travel-inspired box. The decal measures about 4 inches tall and wide. I’m thinking about using it for scrapbooking, maybe on a page with vacation photos or something.

Peaches and Petals January 2016 Box Review plus 50% Off Promo Code

The overall value is probably around $32.44, which is pretty good for the price. It’s more than double what the box cost! This was the last box priced at $14.99, so I think it’s fair to assume the next box will have a higher value. I really enjoyed this month and like it even more than December’s box. The infuser bottle and selfie stick were both hits for me and the cookbook was a nice little extra that I will probably get a good amount of use out of.

If you want an affordable little gift for yourself every month, I think this is worth trying out. Get 50% off your first month with the code PEACHWENDY. (That’s only $10 for your first box!)

Spoiler alert for February ahead!

Peaches and Petals January 2016 Box Review plus 50% Off Promo Code

Each box will contain a “Love themed” throw pillow cover. I’m guessing the February box will have a pretty heavy Valentine’s Day theme to it! I can’t get enough hearts in my life, so that sounds perfect to me.

POPSUGAR Must Have January 2016 Review plus Free Gift!

First POPSUGAR Must Have box of the year! I’ve been a subscriber for over two years now and still love to see the bright pink box on my doorstep.

POPSUGAR Must Have is a subscription service that sends a variety of items for women that are curated by the POPSUGAR editors. Items typically include food, beauty, home, among other miscellaneous things. Each month is $39.99/month, but you can use the code REFER5 to get $5 off your first month. (For a free gift with your February box, use this link! You can apply the $5 off code as well.) It’s hands down my favorite subscription thus far, and consistently has a great cost to value ratio. Almost every month the value of the box is more than $100.

POPSUGAR Must Have January 2016 Review plus Free Gift!

The themes and inspiration for this January box are: renewal, organization, detox, new year, and healthy habits.

Pehr Designs Pebble Speck Bin | $40.00
Love this storage bin! It’s made of heavy duty canvas and the print is cute yet versatile. It feels very well made and is quite sturdy. I am really impressed with getting a bin of this size in a subscription box. It definitely is a unique item I haven’t received before and very practical but still kind of fun. I could definitely use more of these bins in my life!

POPSUGAR Must Have January 2016 Review plus Free Gift!

It’s a surprisingly large storage bin. I put the POPSUGAR box in there for scale, and it would be perfect for books or toys as well. I’m currently using mine for all my miscellaneous crafting supplies, but I’m hoping to get another one for my dog’s toys. She’s a spoiled one!

POPSUGAR Must Have January 2016 Review plus Free Gift!

Spark Joy by Marie Kondo | $18.99 ($11.49 on Amazon)
I’ve heard a lot about Marie Kondo and her “KonMari” system of organization. Some people seem to love it and some people are really skeptical, but I think she’s influential and popular enough for this to be a really good choice to put in the box. The idea behind this book is to only keep items that “spark joy” and make you happy. If it doesn’t give you happiness, you don’t need it in your life. I like the thought behind it and appreciate her tips even if I don’t agree with all of her advice. I think the overall idea of simplifying your possessions and not holding on to items for the sake of holding on to them is a good one.

POPSUGAR Must Have January 2016 Review plus Free Gift!

There are maybe a dozen or so pages of illustrations, mostly showing how to fold various articles of clothing. For me, these were the most helpful since I have always been beyond hopeless at folding.

Patchology FlashMasque Trio | $20.00
I just got a sheet mask from Birchbox, but I never say no to more sheet masks! I love that I get to try 3 different kinds and each one only takes 5 minutes. Plus, you don’t rinse these off afterwards! I’m telling you, sheet masks are such a godsend for lazy girls like me! This trio pack comes with:

  • Exfoliate: gently removes dead skin cells for more even tone and texture
  • Hydrate: delivers a mega-dose of moisture for soft, silky skin
  • Illuminate: reveals fresh-faced radiance to lackluster skin

I only tried the Hydrate one so far and it feels great! I put it on right after my shower, kept it on for 5 minutes, then followed up with my regular moisturizer. I woke up the next morning with super soft skin that felt really smooth and looked beautiful.

Blue Sky Day Designer Weekly Planner | $15.99
I’m probably in the minority, but I actually needed this planner. I like to wait until January to buy my calendars and planners since they go on sale, and I am perfectly happy to wait two or three extra weeks to score a sweet 50% off deal. I think the color is beautiful and the size (5″ x 8″) is exactly what I would have purchased for myself. It probably would have appealed to more people if it had come in the December box, but for all the other procrastinators and deal hunters out there who didn’t have a planner yet, it’s perfect!

POPSUGAR Must Have January 2016 Review plus Free Gift!

Plenty of space to write on and very simple and clear layout. If you already have a planner, maybe you could use this as a “sentence a day” type of journal. One of my coworkers writes down one sentence each day as a sort of shortened diary entry, and I always thought it was a neat idea! She said it forces her to really focus on what was most important that day and choose her words more carefully.

POPSUGAR Must Have January 2016 Review plus Free Gift!

Not Soap, Radio Bath and Shower Gel Gift Set | $8.00
For some reason this item is listed as a $22 value, when I think it should be closer to $8. A 2 ounce travel size shower gel sells for $3 on the site, and these are only 1 ounce each. That comes to a total of $7.50 for the shower gel and I’ll throw in another $0.50 for the bag. With that being said, I do like this brand and have enjoyed the scents I’ve tried before. This pack of 5 came with:

  • Liquid Freud (coconut milk mango + vanilla)
  • When life gives you one too many lemons (lemon + sugar)
  • To sleep full of sweet dreams (lavender + clementine)
  • Bathing with sharks (beach + sky blue water)
  • Awash in a field of four-leaf clover (green & white tea + clover)

I plan to keep these for traveling and for going to the gym. The bottles are refillable and seem sufficiently leak-proof, so I think I will keep them to reuse for travel.

Project 7, INC Summer Snow Sugar Free Gum | $1.99
I’m a total gum addict and always have it on hand, so this was a great choice for me. Even though I always hope we’ll get a sweet treat from POPSUGAR, this is something different and interesting. Project 7 partners with various nonprofits ranging from anti-bullying to childhood hunger to planting trees, which is a nice little bonus. I do love finding out about companies with a giving back mission. Some of their flavors sound intriguing. Wedding cake, kettle pop, and chocolate cinnamon? I can’t even imagine them in gum form, but now I want to try!

POPSUGAR Must Have January 2016 Review plus Free Gift!

ChapStick Total Hydration 100% Natural Soothing Vanilla | $2.99
This is listed as a “special extra”, so I’m guessing it’s a new product from ChapStick that they’re trying to promote. The only time my lips ever get chapped is in the winter, so this was a smart January choice for me. I don’t mind having extra lip balm lying around, since I seem to always lose them when I need it most.

POPSUGAR Must Have January 2016 Review plus Free Gift!

I personally thought it was a fantastic box. I think the curation went well with the themes that they chose and it felt appropriate for a “new year” shipment. I do feel more motivated to get organized! The overall value comes out to around $107.96, pretty standard for POPSUGAR. I will definitely use each and every item. Compared to the previous two years, I would say this is my favorite January box so far!

Don’t forget, you can still get this box! Subscribe through this link when you sign up between now and January 22nd to receive a free Olivia + Ciate London: The Cheekbone Cheat Blusher Bronzer Duo ($32.00 value) in your February box! And since it’s not a promo code, you can still use coupon code MUSTHAVE5 or REFER5 to save $5 off your first box.

Is anyone else really excited about February? They’re shipping it out ahead of schedule, which makes me think there’s something Valentine’s Day related inside. I absolutely loved last year’s February box so I have high hopes!
