Put a Bow On It is a Canadian lifestyle subscription box. They have two different box options. The $60 Premium box is the original gift box containing a variety of products from beauty, fashion, home decor etc. The Deluxe box is $36 and will contain completely different items. Shipping for both boxes is an additional $10. They just added shipping to the United States at a cost of $22.50, shipped through Fedex.
I hadn’t gotten this box since August but I was emailed a coupon awhile ago and so I decided to give it another go. I was excited when I saw that the theme was “Embrace Change” and I was excited to see what they would do with that. As always, the box was perfectly wrapped and was fun to open.
Bath & Body Works Vineyard Champagne Kiss Shower Gel–Rich, bubbly lather bursting with fragrance. Moisturizing Aloe Vera and Vitamin E combine with skin-loving Shea Butter in our most irresistible, beautifully fragranced formula. I don’t hate the scent of this, it’s not as flowery as so many are. Shower gel is always something I will use so I’ll likely start using this one when my current one is empty.
Bath & Body Works Vineyard Champagne Kiss Body Lotion–Fortified with nutrient-rich ingredients like protective Vitamin E and conditioning vitamin B5, fast-absorbing, non-greasy formula delivers 16 hours of continuous moisture. Another item that I will probably use. I have a TON of lotion right now but eventually they will all get used up. This did have a ton of dried stuff on the lid so I think the lotion must have leaked a bit, or something leaked on it before it was packaged up.
Mannakadar Eyeshadow Stick–Change the way you apply your eyeshadow. Achieve a bold eye look with this easy glide on eyeshadow stick! Can be applied on the eyes as a shadow base or shadow, as well as a highlighter on the cheekbones. Also has hydrating properties and a retractable wand for easy use. Apparently this brand is the official provider for The Ellen Degeneres Show and has been featured in VOGUE magazine. It’s also valued at $31.20. Yikes, that’s expensive. I’m a bit confused about the wand part of this and why the item itself says that it’s also a liner. I just don’t see this being easy to use as a liner. The color is great for my skin tone but I may hold on to it if I decide to use it as a base or something. Not thrilled with this item though.
Tassle Keychain–Keep your keys in check–and in style–and always easy to find with this tassle keychain. Great way to change up the lok of a purse, bag or keys. My work keys are on a Jones Soda lanyard, house keys have my scan card for the gym and a tweety bird key chain and my car keys have a Daryl Dixon key chain. This might make them easier to find in my purse, but I’m not wanting to switch anything up at this time. I also just can’t get into this whole tassel thing. I’m really not sure about the trend of adding something like this onto your purse.
Trinket Tray-Embrace Change–Change the way you store your small objects with this lovely and ultra-feminine addition to your bedroom vanity, keep your jewelry at-the-ready in style with this royal blue ceramic trinket tray. Multi-functional, it even makes a perfect desk-side companion at the office for paperclips, tacks, spare change and other small items alike. Apparently this one item with this phrase is where the theme for the month came from. It’s cute and I do like it a lot better than the leather catch-all that was in August’s box. I don’t like that on the top of the box you can see where there was once a sticker. Always makes me wonder what they removed! I really don’t have a use for this right now but will likely hold on to it for when we have a house and more space.
I love the presentation of this box. It’s so fun to get something that’s wrapped in the mail. I wish there was more variety in the boxes, or maybe I just subscribe at bad times. The last box I received had B&BW lotion and a tray, so two repeat items. There is only so much lotion and trays that a girl needs. I keep hoping for another box like I got in June, that’s been my favorite from them so far. I haven’t written this subscription box off yet, but I’m almost convinced that it’s just not for me. I also wish they would have stuck to a theme better, and maybe explained why they picked these items and how they relate to “embrace change”.
