Petit Vour March 2015 Subscription Box Review

Petit Vour March 2015 Subscription Box

Petit Vour is a monthly subscription box of cruelty-free beauty products, hand-picked from businesses that align quality with progressive standards.  Boxes are $15/month and they do an excellent job making sure that the value well exceeds the cost.

Petit Vour March 2015 Subscription Box Review

The Box

Petit Vour ships via USPS and takes only a few days to arrive.  Boxes ship in batches between the 15th and 20th of the month.

Petit Vour March 2015 Subscription Box Review

First Look

I had gotten a look at the March box and was quite excited to get mine.  There was one item in particular I was quite excited to see!

Petit Vour March 2015 Subscription Box Review

The Information Card

The March 2015 Petit Vour theme was “Spring Dreaming” and included the following all-natural pike to elevate your ritual:

~The Little Alchemist Cacao & Banana Face Glow ($32): I somehow missed that this was a powder and almost spilled it all over the place when I was opening it up!  Oops.  You add a teaspoon of this to your liquid of choice (purified water, honey, yogurt, ) and then mix up in a small bowl.  It’s recommended for use 1-2 times per week and you only have to leave it on for 10 minutes. I’ve only used it once but I was quite pleased with it.  It made my skin feel glowy and clean.  I used water to mix it this time but I can’t wait to experiment with some different bases for it!

Petit Vour March 2015 Subscription Box Review

The Little Alchemist Cacao & Banana Face Glow

~Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream ($11.47): This has been in a few different subscription boxes and I have always liked it.  It blends into my skin nicely, but I am not loving the smell today. I don’t know if they changed it up, but I don’t remember it being so strong?

Petit Vour March 2015 Subscription Box Review

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream

~Vert Mont Perfumery EROS Wellness Perfume ($5): I take back what I said about the Juice Beauty being strong smelling because this is STRONG!  It’s described as a “love potion” but I think it’s just too much for me personally.

Petit Vour March 2015 Subscription Box Review

Vert Mont Perfumery EROS Wellness Perfume

~Metropolis Soap Co. (MSC Skin Care) Lip Butter ($7): This is a lavender and spearmint scented lip balm.  Is it just me or have we been getting a lot of lavender scented items in subscription boxes lately?  It’s not a bad thing – just an observation.  I am already using this and have it on my desk right now.

Petit Vour March 2015 Subscription Box Review

Metropolis Soap Co. Lip Butter

All totaled I came up with a value of $55.47 for the March 2015 Petit Vour box.  And I was thrilled with it.  I am blown away by The Little Alchemist Mask and can only hope to see more from them in the future!

Wantable Fitness Edit March 2015 Subscription Box

Wantable Fitness Edit is Wantable’s newest subscription service. I believe this is my third box from them and so far I have kept at least one thing from each box. Each month your fitness editor will hand select 5 fitness pieces which you can try on at home before you buy. Item prices are based on your personal preferences but usually range from $20-$60 each. There is a $20 styling fee and you can keep the pieces you like (the $20 styling fee will be deducted from the cost of the items you keep) and return the ones you don’t. You are only charged for the items you keep and if you end up keeping everything you get a 30% discount on all the items (or a 20% discount if you keep 3-4 items)!

Wantable Fitness Edit March 2015 Subscription Box Review

Wantable Fitness Edit ships via DHL Global Mail (starts out with DHLand is delivered by USPS) out of Wisconsin.

Second First Look

This box looked quite promising!  I could see some pretty colors popping out and was anxious to see what everything was.

Wantable Fitness Edit March 2015 Subscription Box Review

The Information Card

My March 2015 Wantable Fitness Edit contained the following items:

~Nux Hailey Shorts (Metallic Grey) ($65): These are listed on the information card at $65, however, I found them online for $45. Not sure if it was a typo or what and if I was thinking about keeping them I would have e-mailed about it, but I knew right away these weren’t for me. These aren’t quite booty shorts, but close enough and there is NO WAY I could pull these off. Verdict: Returned.

Wantable Fitness Edit March 2015 Subscription Box Review

Nux Hailey Shorts (Metallic Grey)

~Climawear Majesty Runner (Blue) ($46): I love the color of this shirt and the material is a stretchy without being too stretchy and the fit is great, but there’s just something about it I don’t love. I don’t know if it’s the pattern or the combination of it all or what? I probably would have kept it if it had a hood though! Verdict: Returned.

Wantable Fitness Edit March 2015 Subscription Box Review

Climawear Majesty Runner Blue

~Climawear Dipped Depths Runner Pink ($46): I love every single thing abut this shirt. It’s longer and hits at the hips, the material is lightweight and also very soft and, well, it’s pink ombre.  What’s not to love?  Verdict: Kept.

Wantable Fitness Edit March 2015 Subscription Box Review

Climawear Dipped Depths Runner Pink

~Rebecca Michaels Turtleneck Hoodie Pullover Pink ($98): This is totally my style.  However, it’s Spring so do I really need a $98 hoodie right now? I kind of hope not.  Had I wanted to keep all of the other items I certainly would have kept this too for the discount, but since I didn’t it was an easy decision to send it back. Verdict: Returned.

Wantable Fitness Edit March 2015 Subscription Box Review

Rebecca Michaels Turtleneck Hoodie Pullover Pink

~Rebecca Michaels Ankle Legging Diamond ($70): Why do these have to be $70?  Ahh, I would so keep them if they were $30 or less.  Maybe even $40 or less.  But for $70? Nah. I will say that they are super soft, but not that soft… Verdict: Returned.

Wantable Fitness Edit March 2015 Subscription Box Review

Rebecca Michaels Ankle Legging Diamond

All totaled my pieces had a value of $325.  Had I kept them all it would have cost me $227.50 ($325 – $20 styling fee – $97.50 keep all 30% discount) or about $46 per piece.  Not a crazy price point when you break it down like that, but I still think it’s high.  I would love if Wantable offered even 10% or 15% off you kept just 1 or 2 pieces too!

Do you subscribe to Wantable?  If so, what’d you get in your box (fitness, makeup or accessories or intimates) this month?

Mantry March 2015 Subscription Box Review

Mantry March 2015 Subscription Box

Mantry (aka the Modern Man’s Pantry) is a food of the month club that lets you discover the finest american artisan foods – and gives you ideas of what to do with them.  It’s $75/month and has been around since the Fall of 2012.  It’s one of the more expensive subscriptions we get, but B loves it!

Mantry March 2015 Subscription Box Review

The Box

Mantry ships via UPS Mail Innovations.  It shipped on Monday and I received it today (on Wednesday).  Mantry always ships on the 20th of the month and bills just a day or two before they ship.

Mantry March 2015 Subscription Box Review

The Mantry Crate

Mantry packages all of their items inside of a Mantry branded wooden crate.  I have always loved them but I think they are even better now that we have a use for them.  B uses them to store glasses and drink mixes and that sort of thing on the shelves in our basement bar.  They are totally perfect for it and look cool.

Mantry March 2015 Subscription Box Review

First Look

This month’s Mantry included the information booklet and a Curator’s Letter.  I think March was the first month we’ve ever received a Curator’s Letter.  It gave a little insight to the selections which I loved and I hope this is a new monthly feature.

Mantry March 2015 Subscription Box Review

The Information Booklet

Mantry March 2015 Subscription Box Review

Inside

The March 2015 Mantry theme was “Tennessee Roadtrip” and included the following items:

~Shotwell Candy Co. “Old Fashioned” Cocktail Caramels ($9.75): We have received Shotwell Caramels before, but never this flavor.  I am a fan of these, but B wasn’t really.  They aren’t your standard caramels – they are infused with bitters, orange peel and booze (hence the name cocktail caramels). I think it helps knowing that before you try them.

Mantry March 2015 Subscription Box Review

Shotwell Candy Co. “Old Fashioned” Cocktail Caramels

~JM Thomason Hot Chicken Rub ($8.99): Mantry has a suggested recipe for this on their website titled “Nashville Hot Chicken“. It looks delicious (like DELICIOUS) and hopefully I can handle the heat!

Mantry March 2015 Subscription Box Review

JM Thomason Hot Chicken Rub

~Soberdough Brew Bread ($8.95): I know we’ve received Soberdough before, but I don’t think it was the Buffaloving’ Wing flavor?  This bread is SUPER easy to make – you just add a bottle of beer to the mix and put it in  the oven.  There’s not a chance you could mess it up and you can use whatever beer you want.  Mantry recommends an “snappy American IPA” for this one.

Mantry March 2015 Subscription Box Review

~Chattanooga Cookie Co. Tennessee Moonshine Cake ($8): Mantry describes this as a “dessert and nightcap” in one.  It’s made with moonshine from Gatlinburg’s Ole Smoky distillery.  B and I had the same idea about this one and dug into it right after dinner.  It was awesome. Like a chocolate chip muffin.  With moonshine.

Mantry March 2015 Subscription Box Review

~Blackberry Farm Smoked Onion Jam ($13): We really need to step up our jam game.  We get a ton of it in subscription boxes and can’t use it fast enough!  Mantry suggests using this on the ham in this box which I never would have thought of.  B will try this on Sunday morning and and I am sure his instagram will have a picture.

Mantry March 2015 Subscription Box Review

Blackberry Farm Smoked Onion Jam

~Father’s Country Ham Country Ham ($5.75):  This is cured ham and needs to be cooked before eating.  I’m not familiar with the curing process, but I find it fascinating you can send meat in a package like this and have it be fine.

Mantry March 2015 Subscription Box Review

Father’s Country Ham Country Ham

All totaled I came up with a value of $54.44 for the March 2015 Mantry box.  The value is less than the cost of the box (it usually is though), but we really liked this box.  I was actually surprised when I did the math and figured out the price.  I had expected it to be higher.  This box had a ton of variety and we loved the theme of it.
