Petit Vour is a website that offers a monthly subscription box that is “cruelty-free, curated by women who love beauty & animals.” The boxes run $18.00 per month and will include four products valued at $45-$60.

The box came quickly after I ordered and has a super cute aesthetic.

There are five items in this box but there are only four listed in the brochure. One item was a free gift with subscription.

They have a nice rewards program whether you subscribe to the monthly box or not. I was not able to review my products but it might be because of my late date of subscribing to this month’s box.

Here’s a peek at our five items. The Juice Beauty Cleansing Bar was our free gift with a new subscription .

Item 1: K. Voss – Bronzing Potion Glow Cream – $20 – This product is a sheer illuminating cream that is supposed to give you a natural glow while moisturizing your skin. This product is certified vegan and made in China.

Item 2: Kahina Giving Beauty – Oil Cleanser – $10 – This cleanser goes onto your dry face and should dissolve makeup, sunscreen, and bacteria. Made in USA. Full size bottle – https://amzn.to/2FDGTXv

Item 3: Little Barn Apothecary – Honeysuckle + Grapefruit Body Oil – $14 – This is a moisture-locking scented body oil that you apply to damp skin. Made with organic sesame oil, virgin organic avocado oil, & Italian honeysuckle. Made in USA.

Item 4: Andalou Naturals – Citrus Sunflower Uplifting Shower Gel – $2 – This is a hydrating shower gel that is made in the USA with domestic & imported ingredients. It is vegan, non-GMO, gluten free, & cruelty free. https://amzn.to/2FDjvJw

Item 5: Juicy Beauty – Green Apple Cleansing Bar – This was a free gift with my new subscription. It is a bar soap that smells really nice and subtle. It is formulated with organic ingredients but does not show a country of origin. My cat decided to photobomb the first pic. https://amzn.to/2FB8hFw

I really like that this company promotes only cruelty-free products. I wish every company did this! While I think their monthly fee is a little high, I appreciate that they are using these specific products.

You will earn rewards points for reviewing your items. The points are converted into dollars to spend online at their shop. In order to cancel your account, you have to email contact@petitvour.com so you cannot cancel through the website.

Kidpik – Review #1

Some posts may contain affiliate links which means that if you click on the link & make a purchase, I may be compensated (this is at no cost to you).

If you would like to learn about how I do a product review or info about subscription services, please comment below or email me at esoterictartan@gmail.com.

Kidpik is a girls monthly clothing subscription box in the size range of 4-16. This one does not charge an upfront styling fee which is always nice. They send “three head-to-toe mix-&-match fully coordinated outfits.” All of the clothing is their own brand.

*Please see below about checkout & cancelling regarding issues I had.*

The box even has a sticker specialized for your child so they feel like this is even more customized which is sweet.

The box comes with a brochure showing all of your items and the prices. It also comes with a bag with a prepaid label on it to return any items you don’t want to keep.

We received a total of seven items. Each item has its regular price and if you keep everything, you receive a 30% discount.

They include a free gift for every child to keep for free no matter what. This time it was two friendship bracelets. They look small but have a lot of stretch to them.

Item 1: Stripe Rose Patch Patch Top – Color: Kidpik Navy – Size XL (14) – Price $25.50 (Keep all price $17.85) – The straps for the top of the shirt say “Love” and are an elastic band. Even though this top was cute, it just doesn’t fit right. It was very big for a 14 and just didn’t fit right for a little girl. We probably could have sized down in this one but I felt it was a little too revealing the way it laid. The detailing on the arms was adorable with the ruffles and cutouts.

Item 2: Yeah Tassel Tee – Color: Light Heather Grey – Size XL (14) – Price $16.50 (Keep all price $11.55) – This was a cute top but just not my daughter’s style. I like the sequins and tassels so it wasn’t just a plain grey shirt. The edging around the neck, arms, and bottom was a little different too which I liked.

Item 3: Denim Bermuda Short – Color: Calla Lily Wash – Size 12 – Price $19.50 (Keep all price $13.65) – These shorts were cute and have an adjustable waist.

The inside has patches over the holes so the it doesn’t actually go through which I appreciate.

Item 4: Pull On Fringe Denim Jean – Color: White – Size 12 – Price $25.50 (Keep all price $17.85) – White can be very cute but not on a kid. I like that these had a different design but they ran kind of small. They looked like a skinny jean with a flare at the bottom even though they aren’t billed as that. I just cannot justify buying white pants for my kid because I know they won’t stay that color.

Item 5: Stripe Ottoman Skater Dress – Color: True Red – Size XL (14) – Price $22.50 (Keep all price $15.75) – This dress is adorable! It is red, white, and navy blue with a little bit of stretch. I love that the stripes on the bottom go a different direction than the stripes on the top!

This dress seems to run a true 14. My daughter has room to grow, it’s not too big, not too small. Definitely my favorite piece out of this box.

Item 6: Aviator Sunglasses – Color: Pacific Coast – One Size – Price $7.50 (Keep all price $5.25) – These are cute but super tiny for a smaller child. I took a picture of them sitting inside of my daughter’s regular glasses (in the first pic below).

Item: 7: Janely Glitter Ballet – Color: White – Size 4 Youth – Price $19.50 (Keep all price $13.65) – These shoes are super cute and just the right mix of dress up without being over the top. They are sparkly but not overly so. All shoes come in a drawstring bag like the one shown.

We liked the items in this bag even though some items didn’t fit right. Since my daughter is going between a sizes, that will happen sometimes. The merchandise total was $136.50 but would have been $95.55 with the ‘Keep All’ 30% discount.

Kidpik gives you a lot of flexibility in their options. You have the option to receive ‘Piks’ every 4 weeks, 6 weeks, or 12 weeks. They also give you an option to skip a box, pause your box for 30/60/90 days, or adjust your frequency of boxes for the year (2, 4, or 8 boxes per year).

Once you receive your box, you have seven days to try items on & decide what to keep. You will then be able to check out online.

*** I could not find the ‘Checkout’ option anywhere online and had to email the company. This might be because my package was not showing delivered even though it obviously has been.

*** Cancelling has been a pain because you have to click through a couple of menus to find the cancellation button. Once you find it, it then tells you that you need to call them at 1-844-848-1852. Their hours online say 9AM – 5PM Eastern Standard Time (EST) but when you call, it says their hours are 10AM-6PM. I called at 2:32 PM and received a voicemail.

*** So at this point, I have left a voicemail and emailed the company at hello@kidpik.com to tell them I want to check out and I included my cancel request in the email as well. Hopefully I will hear from them soon.

*** UPDATE: The company emailed back at changed our package status to delivered. This gave me the ability to check out so it’s good to know that it wasn’t a problem with the account & it wasn’t eating away at our seven day time frame. They also cancelled our subscription through the email so I did not have to call again.

Once everything was resolved, checkout was very quick and easy. I do like this company and their clothing and think our particular account just ran into a snag. We may reach out and try another box in the future.

If this is a service you would like to try, I have provided my link where we will each get $20 in credit.

Snack Crate – Review #2

Ah, Snack Crate… You have my heart with food! This month’s Snack Crate is from France! France is one of our Bucket List destinations so we were super excited to try this out! All of their snack crates come with Nutritional Information in English which is obviously helpful for those with allergies or diet restrictions. We have a vegetarian in our house so we always check ingredients.

After our sample box from Turkey (see that review here:
https://esoterictartan.com/2019/02/19/snack-crate-review-1/ ) , we decided to stay on for another month since we love France!

Our French box upon opening.

Each box comes with a booklet letting you know what comes in the boxes. The Mini (5 items), the Original (Mini + 5 more items), & Premium (Mini, Original, + ten more items!).


The Premium option also offers a drink upgrade.

Each box come with stickers from the featured country.

Even the tissue paper is specialized to the featured country. I like it that they make this a full & fun experience for the family.

Everything comes well packed and nothing is crushed, including chips!

We decided to order the Original box which has ten items to get a little more of the French experience than the Mini box.

Item 1: La Madeleine D’Amor – These say they are a sweet & buttery cake but honestly, being from the USA, it tastes like a slightly sweeter cornbread. I’ve heard our bread (& foods in general) are sweeter than the rest of the world so that might be why I feel this way. That being said, it was delicious! I really enjoyed this treat!

Item 2: Lay’s Poulet – These are a potato chip that is flavored with roasted chicken. Yes, chicken. I have to say, I loved it! The funny part was, my dog who eats anything and everything, would NOT eat one at first. They definitely have a chicken flavor and you almost feel like you are eating dinner.

Item 3: Tetes Brulees – The are a sour flavored candy that have a sweet inside. I thought these were so extremely sour but the kids liked them. I don’t do videos but oh my, if you could have seen my face!

Item 4: Nestle Nuts – This is a milk chocolate candy bar filled with caramel & hazelnuts. This is definitely delicious. I’m not a fan of caramel (or carmel as we call it) but it is definitely a good candy bar.

Item 5: Petit Ecolier – These are a crunchy, sweet, & buttery cookie with a layer of chocolate. These are my favorite kind of treat. They are almost like a sweet cracker (almost shortbread) with chocolate.

Item 6: Mikado Daim – Crunch biscuit sticks dipped in caramel and milk chocolate. These are basically a French Pocky. Again, not a fan of caramel/carmel but it was a really nice treat.

Item 7: Poulain Chocolate Bar: There were three flavors available for this chocolate bar. We received Dark Chocolate which is my fav! This was a delicious chocolate and a very large bar.

Item 8: Carambar Atomic – These are chewy candies that a mix of fruity & sour flavors. The sour was so intense it was like eating a lemon!

Item 9: Haribo Orangina Pik – They are chewy gummies with a zesty orange flavor of Orangina soda. We have not tried these yet but they come in a very large bag, it’s not a small sample.

Item 10: Nestle Sundy Bar – This is a dark chocolate bar made with crunchy corn flakes. It is much better than it sounds! The corn flake top has a syrup like taste. I really enjoyed it and could not think of an American comparison.

This is our 2nd Snack Crate and I am blown away at the quality of items (they are not all just small, sample items!) and their attention to detail. Every Original & Premium size crate also comes with an opportunity to win a trip to the featured country! I cannot wait to see what country is featured next!

Before they announced that the country was France, I reached out to see if they released spoilers of the next highlighted destination. The customer service representative I spoke with was hilarious (telling me their extreme overlord would not allow them to release that information). I appreciate humor and this guy was on it! He did let me know to keep an eye on their Facebook page because that is their main social media outlet.

If you start out with their sample crate to see if it is something you would enjoy, you have three different crates to choose from. The crates are always changing and as of posting time, the three to choose from are the UK (4 countries in one), Hawaii, & South Africa.

If this is something you would be interested in, I highly recommend it and would appreciate it if you would use my link below.

Joyfolie Website – Review #1

Joyfolie is a website that sells exclusive clothing and accessories for women and girls. They have clothing, jewelry, shoes, etc.  I love the elegant look of their items!

We bought two items to try out this website. One was a dress for my ten-year-old daughter and the other was a choker necklace for my teen.

The sizing for women only go up to an XL so I was not able to order anything for myself. I need a minimum of a XXL.

The plastic bag they use for shipping is super cute with a floral pattern.

Each each item comes individually wrapped.

Item 1: Zadie Dress in red – Size 14 – Retail Price $72 (on sale for $39.99) – Oh my goodness, this dress is so adorable! The material is not soft but it’s not itchy either. It also comes in navy and in cream. https://www.joyfolie.com/products/new-zadie-dress-in-red

My daughter usually wears a size 10/12 but we have started to size up on certain items. We bought a size 14 and it is super long.

The detailing of the ruffles on the sleeve and a tiny bit of lace detail on the front just give it a little something that makes it stand out.

The back has a keyhole cutout.

The bottom flares out when spinning around and she had so much fun twirling in this dress!

She had enough room through in the dress so it did fit like a 14 (except for the length) so she has a room to grow.

Item 2: Juniper Choker – Retail Price $12.50 (Currently on final sale for $6.99) – The choker came wrapped in its own floral tissue and little bag. https://www.joyfolie.com/products/juniper-choker

It is a gold lace choker that doesn’t have a lot of give in the band. It does have an adjustable chain for comfort.

I love that even though it’s a choker, it has an elegant look.

I found this company from an advertisement on Facebook so I was a little unsure about ordering at first but I was very pleased with the products.  You can receive a monthly gift for ordering but I don’t think I added it correctly because I did not receive one.  UPDATE: Customer Service responded to me so quickly and are sending out two free gifts for my daughter and I which is so kind of them.  They are sending us matching sunglasses and matching sandals.  That was very sweet of them!

I truly love the clothes that the shop provides.  I like it that they are unique and not the same old thing that you find at other places.  We will definitely be ordering again!  You can sign up for free to become an Insider so you can receive 10% off your first purchase, get the free monthly gift, and stay up to date on their items!

FabKids – Review #1

If you would like to learn about how I do a product review or info about subscription services, please comment below or email me at esoterictartan@gmail.com.

We decided to try FabKids for my 10 yes old daughter. It is a monthly clothing subscription for kids that cost $29.95. That money will get credited to your account and you get to choose your clothing.

This is run by the same company that does Fabletics, ShoeDazzle, & JustFab.

We didn’t want the monthly subscription so created an account, bought her an outfit, and then canceled my account. We bought two pieces which I which I will review. I am not reviewing the subscription piece of FabKids.

The package came pretty quickly after we ordered it.

Each each item is wrapped individually and is their own brand.

Item 1:Pom Pom Jumpsuit – Size XL (14/16) – Retail Price $29.95 – This outfit is so adorable! It is very soft and my daughter wants to sleep in it. She normally wears a size L/12 but is on the cusp of sizing up and this fit her perfect. If you are a true size 14/16 I think it may run a little small.

The detailing on the top is super cute well without being too much.

The outfit is cinched at the waist and has pockets which made it even cuter.

The bottoms are made to come up a little higher than normal and have a flare.

This is what the inside of the bottom looks like. The stitching is nice and not itchy.

This picture is a little blurry but I wanted to show a close up of how wide the bottoms are.

The colors on the top are very vibrant. I was afraid this would look chintzy in person but it doesn’t at all.

Item 2: Gold Lace Up Sandals – Size 4 – Retail Price $24.95 – I was a little unsure about these but they are super cute in person.

They tie like a regular shoe on the top and actually stayed tied. My daughter did double knot them but did not play in them. She said if she played in them they might not have stayed tied very well.

They have a zipper at the back that makes the shoe easier to put on. There’s a piece of fabric to cover the zipper on the inside of the sandal so it doesn’t rub the back of the leg.

When we were purchasing, there was a promotion for 50% off your first item and also a $20 credit they applied to the account which I think has something to do with a shoe special they had going on.

Our total would have been $54.90 but we ended up paying only $21.32 which includes tax and free shipping.

I really like the clothes but wish you didn’t have to have the subscription to do it. They do provide the option to go in and skip months though.

I tried to send an email to cancel are subscription and I received an email back saying they no longer utilize email as a means of communication and asked me to call a 1-800 number. I called and they did cancel it pretty easy, of course offering me discounts if I would stay with them.

I really do like the service and we’ll probably go back and buy some other things for my daughter eventually. They definitely has some cute pieces and I like it that they are their own brand.

Socks Matter – Review #2

If you would like to learn about how I do a product review or info about subscription services, please comment below or email me at esoterictartan@gmail.com.

Socks Matter is a monthly sock subscription where you receive two pairs of socks for $12.

After my first review, the company reached out and asked if they could send me a free pair to review. My family loves socks so we were very excited. All opinions are still my own though. You can read my first review here.

https://esoterictartan.com/2019/02/23/socks-matter-review-1/amp/

I don’t know if this is my regular two pair I paid for plus a free pair OR if they sent me three pairs and I have my regular package company.

One thing I really love about this company if they donate a pair of socks for every pair that you bought. I love it when companies give back!

First Pair: Men’s Crew Sock – I have turned one of the socks inside out so you can see the detailing. These socks are incredibly soft and I love the color combo. They are definitely a fun sock that looks and feels very nice.

Second pair: Woman’s or kids crew sock – my ten-year-old described these perfectly “it’s like a party on a sock!”. The colors are very vibrant and they seem well made.

Third pair: Woman’s no show – I like these so much better than the first pair we received. The first pair was more of a liner while this is more of a no-show sock. It still has the non-slip grip on the back but come up a little bit higher which helps them stay in place. These are so incredibly soft and I don’t feel any tightness around the toe area. (If we can buy these individually, I’m definitely purchasing these!)

I really appreciate the company reaching out and I was much more impressed with these no show socks than the other ones. My teen loved the pattern on the yellow/black pair from the previous bag so much that she started showing them off at school. Her friends were even telling me how much she loved them.

We have tried a few sock subscriptions & I truly think this one has the best value. I can’t wait till we get our next order.

If this is something you would be interested in, please click the link below. By using this link, we will each get a free pair.

Original Photo by Adrian Jenkins

I bought this gorgeous photo at the Indianapolis Scottish Highland Games & Festival in 2018. It is by a very talented photographer named Adrian Jenkins.

It is titled ‘Fading Glimmer’ and is a limited edition fine art print numbered 1 out of 25. Is a 13 x 13 print matted and framed to 23 x 24 and has been signed by Adrian. This photo is from his 2018 collection.

I bought this directly from the photographer and he told me this was taken from inside of a bothy. I believe he said it was on the Isle of Uist if my memory serves me correctly. My pictures do not do this justice to see the details of a old window and the scenery beyond that.

The photo came with its own Certificate of Authenticity. I accidentally laid something on top of my certificate and got it wrinkled.

Adrian has a lot of amazing photographs and I encourage you to check out his work.

You can find his work on his website at http://www.adrianjenkins.com.

Ebates – Rakuten – Review #1

The Legal Disclosure: All product reviews are my own & products have been purchased by myself unless otherwise noted. The reviews will always be honest, full of respect & trust. Some posts may contain affiliate links which means that if you click on the link & make a purchase, I may be compensated (this is at no cost to you). Not all links are affiliate links but will post this on every linked page to be fully transparent. If you would like to learn about how I do a product review or info about subscription services, please comment below or email me at esoterictartan@gmail.com.

Ebates is an online “cash back and shopping rewards company.” There are so many online “rebate” or “cash back” places online that it’s hard to figure them all out and which ones are legit. They do work with major retailers like Amazon, Target, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Sephora, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Kohl’s, Expedia, Under Armour, & Groupon.

I love the channel ‘This or That’ and saw her talking about Ebates so decided to give it a try. I used her link which gave her cash back and gave me a $10.00 Welcome Bonus once I spent at least $25.00 doing my regular online shopping.

There is a widget that you can download so everytime you shop online, you can “activate” the cash back and you do not have to do anything else. The widget option came up after I joined so I didn’t have to go search for it.

There is NO CHARGE for this service and you do not need to put in your bank details. You can choose to have the funds sent via PayPal or by check to your home. I honestly was skeptical until I did my taxes through H&R Block. While we did our taxes, it gave me the pop-up to activate the cash back so I clicked on it. Because it was over $20, I earned the $10.00 sign-on bonus.

I can’t believe I forgot to take a picture of the check! I seem to take pics of everything and forgot this one! These posts are important so you know that I’m not just making stuff up to get you to sign up (which I would NEVER do) so I apologize I forgot to get a picture of the check. My goal is to help you save money with this service.

My first check I received was for $16.01. I received the $10.00 Welcome Bonus, $5.35 from H&R Block, and $0.66 from SprezzaBox. Yes, subscription boxes even work!!!

Currently, I have $1.13 waiting – $0.42 from Target, $0.38 from Target, $0.33 from L’Occitane.

You have the option to enter your credit card information but I do not understand that piece yet so will not recommend it until I know more. I will write a new review and link this one once I have more information on other pieces such as the CC info.

If this is something you would like to try, please use the link below. Referrals give the person signing up a $10.00 Welcome Bonus (once you spend $25.00) and the Referer earns $25.00. It’s definitely worth it to give/get referrals but I always want someone to know I’m not referring them just to make money, I’m very pleased with this service & truly think it’s worth it. You can sign up directly through their website without my link if that is a concern but I would definitely appreciate you using my link.

Allure Beauty Box – Review #2

The Legal Disclosure: All product reviews are my own & products have been purchased by myself unless otherwise noted. The reviews will always be honest, full of respect & trust. Some posts may contain affiliate links which means that if you click on the link & make a purchase, I may be compensated (this is at no cost to you).

If you would like to learn about how I do a product review or info about subscription services, please comment below or email me at esoterictartan@gmail.com.

Allure Beauty Box is a monthly subscription box that provides at least 5 deluxe sample size products. I think I had a buy one, get one free or some other deal when I signed and forgot about it so I was surprised when I received this one! I have already received the March bag and this is the February bag.

Per their website, these boxes contain “top makeup and skincare tested by Allure experts. Over $50 value per month for only $15 including shipping.“ This box has such an incredible value with the products they curate. See the final total of this box at the end of the post which is way more than $50!


I was really excited to open this since I didn’t even know it was coming.

There are ten items including the bag. I am amazed at how many products are in this box for only $15.00!

Item 1: All boxes with a plastic makeup bag that has metal snaps. The February box had a black bag.

Item 2: Wander Beauty – Mile High Club Mascara – Full-size price $26.00 – This is the full size product! – Although I don’t care for the name, I do like this mascara. Let it dry between coats though otherwise it won’t separate well. It doesn’t take much and comes out easily. I love that it is really dark. This is a volume and lengthening mascara. Cruelty & gluten free. Made in Korea. https://amzn.to/2U931ly

Item 3: Model Co – Metallic Eyeshadow Trio in Mykonos – Full-size price $19.99 – This is also the full size product (although it is small) – This comes in the shades burgundy, pink-y champagne, and brown. The three colors go really well together and are supposed to leave a metallic finish. Made in China. https://amzn.to/2CyuPWP

Item 4: Moda Metallics – Triad Eye Brush – Retail value $5.00 (Brush Kit from Moda with bag and four brushes that includes this brush retails for $19.99) – This brush is a shading brush and is incredibly soft! They are 100% vegan. https://amzn.to/2HCnzNs

Item 5: Mamonde – Petal Spa Oil to Foam Cleanser – Full-size price $15.80 for 175 ml (approximately 5.92 ounces) – This product is supposed to be 2-in-1 so you don’t have to double cleanse. You put the oil on your face while it is dry then add water to make it foam. It left my skin really soft. I’m not the biggest fan of the rose scent and it has a really strong fragrance so bear that in mind if you don’t like that floral scent. Made in Korea. https://amzn.to/2Tq15AL

Item 6: Mamonde – Flower Lab Essence Mask in Magnolia – Retail price $6.99 (link is for the Rose scented mask) – I have not tried this product yet so I cannot vouch for scent. It is made with magnolia extract and is a mask for a “bright & clear complexion.” You are supposed to cleanse with toner and then put make on for 10-20 minutes. Made in Korea. https://amzn.to/2YiTUOr

Item 7: The BrowGal – The Instatint Tinted Brow Gel – Full-size price $22.00 – This is made for brown hair and is a tinted brow gel with microfibers. This product should give the appearance of fuller eyebrows with a waterproof formula. The wand is very tiny on the applicator so take care not to push hard. Made in China. https://amzn.to/2utu7p3

Item 8: Derma-E – Vitamin C Concentrated Serum – Full-size price $24.50 for 2 oz – This product is made with Vitamins C & E and full of antioxidants. It smells so clean! I don’t feel soft after using it but it can be used with your moisturizer which will give you the softness. https://amzn.to/2FqP09J

Item 9: Mally – Evercolor Shadow Stick Extra in Burnished Bronze – Full-size price $19.99 – This is a bonus item in the box and a size product! – This is a gorgeous color, goes on so smooth, and is velvety soft. It dries quickly and stays in place. This is supposed to be an “eyeshadow, eyeliner, and primer all in one.” Made in China. https://amzn.to/2unL58r

Item 10: Caudalie Paris – VinoPerfect Radiance Serum Complexion Correcting – Full-size price $79.00 – This is a bonus item in the box and a size product! – This product is very milky serum and is made for all skin types. The box says it is the #1 anti-dark spot product. It has a very clean and light scent. Made in France. https://amzn.to/2UPqEg9

For the seven full size products & 2 trial sizes, the total cost of this box comes to $184.29. That does not include the makeup bag. Again, I am in AWE of the incredible value of the Allure Beauty Box. They are completing nailing it in the beauty box subscriptions! #AllureBeautyBox

They often provide a free gift with purchase which may have been the two bonus items in my box. If this is something you would be interested in, please use the link below.

This is a review of the John Paul Mitchell Limited Edition “Revamp Your Routine Obsessed Box.”

This box is offered on their website for $15.00 which I will link below. Since it is Limited Edition, I don’t know how long the box will be around so I will link the individual products as well. This box ships free (normally they require a $50 purchase for free shipping!).

I love Paul Mitchell products and we have previously purchased some of their items at the salon. I was excited to get this set to try out some different items without paying for a full size bottle.

There are five products included in this box plus three samples I chose.

With each purchase, you can choose three foil pack samples you would like to try. I have an 18 year old with dyed hair so we chose the color protect shampoo and conditioner to try out. The Detangler will always get put to use at our house.

The card lists all of the items in the Obsessed Box and also gives a code if you want to purchase the full size products at a discount.

These are decent size trials so I’m excited about them!

Item 1: Tea Tree Special Color Shampoo – Full-size $17.00 for 10.14 oz – This product is made with tea tree oil and peppermint extracts. It is also made with rooibos tea to help keep color from fading. Let me say, it smells amazing! It is a gender neutral scent as well which is nice. https://amzn.to/2OnkH82

This is made in the USA.

Item 3: Tea Tree Special Color Conditioner – Full-size $18.00 for 10.14 oz – This goes along with the shampoo in being made with similar ingredients. This smells amazing as well but is not as strong as the shampoo. This also has a gender neutral scent. https://amzn.to/2YiQnjd

This one is made in the USA as well.

Item 3: Neuro Protect Heatctrl Iron Hairspray – Price $10.00 for 1.5 oz – This container is small. It is a lightweight heat protectant hairspray. The scent is really hard to describe. It almost has a sweet smell to it. https://amzn.to/2HClZv4

Made in the USA.

Item 4: Paul Mitchell Invisiblewear Velvet Cream – Full-size price $23.00 for 3.5 oz – This is a hair cream you apply to damp hair. It says “lightweight definition” and is supposed to create a lived in texture. I only tried this in a small portion of my hair and didn’t notice much but is was shinier. There is not much of a noticeable scent to this product. https://amzn.to/2UMX6ju

Made in the USA.

Item 5: Awapuhi Wild Ginger Dry Shampoo Foam – Full-size price $24.00 for 5.6 oz – I have not used a lot of dry shampoos before and this one is okay. It comes out like shaving cream and smells really nice, not overly strong. It gave lift to my hair and a little sheen to look nice. I didn’t necessarily feel cleaner but my hair definitely looked better. https://amzn.to/2YhB3TX

Made in the USA.

I really enjoyed this box and LOVE trial size products. If I can get trial sizes before purchasing the bigger products, I always do that so you don’t waste money on a product you don’t care for. I have tried the Paul Mitchell Tea Tree products before and they did work great but it was not this particular formula.
