Put A Bow On It is a Canadian, monthly, lifestyle subscription box. I had subscribed to this box in the past and decided to give them another try. They offer two boxes, Deluxe (which I will be reviewing next week) and Premium, which I am reviewing today.
The Premium box is $64.95/month plus shipping. You will get 4-5 items a month that are lifestyle related and that fit the theme for that month. The Deluxe and Premium boxes have different themes. The theme for the February Premium box is XOXO and is said to have a retail value of $83.00
- XO Mittens These fit the theme, and are perfect for a February box. They are fleece lined, so they are also super warm.
- Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment I have seen this product in Sephora and it claims to moisturize, protect, and smooth lips, and offers sheer coverage or buildable colour. While I was happy to see this product, the shade I received is purple and not for me.
- Cherry Pick Double Pearls Classic Earrings I will admit that I was super disappointed to see this item; I received the exact same item in another Canadian lifestyle subscription box a few months ago. Since they are double-sided, you can wear either smaller pearls or bigger pearls. I will be gifting these to a friend.
- Cherry Pick Layered Up Double Necklace The necklace is pretty and I do like it! I know some people will like getting necklace and earrings from the same company, but I would have preferred to different brands. I also would have preferred receiving only one jewelry item.With that said, I do like the necklace a lot more than I like the earrings.
I have mixed feelings about this box. I want to like it because it's Canadian and a lifestyle box. I also like that they have different themes each month, and the products usually fit the theme. I'm not sure how the two jewelry pieces fit the XOXO theme. I don't necessarily think that subscriptions boxes need to have a crazy value, but I do think that the value of the box should at least equal the price of the box. I know the product cards (which does not list individual prices) says the box has an $83 value...I have a hard time believing that.
This box left me feeling a little underwhelmed...even disappointed. I know there are a number of bloggers who love the Premium box, but it's not for me.
