August 2016 PetGiftBox Review & [COUPON CODE]!!

Please watch my unboxing video and then come back and read this post :)











PetGiftBox is a monthly subscription box for, you guessed it, your pet! They offer a cat box (which is the one I am reviewing) and they also offer a dog box (which has 3 selections based on the size of your dog). The boxes cost $18.99/month for a yearly subscription, $20.99/month for a 6 month subscription, $23.99/month for a 3 month subscription, or you can pay monthly and the cost is $28.99/month. You can also purchase a one time box if you would like to send one as a gift.

Each box contains between 4 and 6 items that are hand picked by the PetGiftBox team. The items in the box can include treats, toys, and other home items.

My cats love getting these boxes! It is a nice treat for them to get some new toys and goodies! 

If you want to get your own box for your pet you can use the coupon code 'codyandkaci' at checkout to get 50% off your first box! To sign up or find out more info visit www.petgiftbox.com






The items in the box:

This months theme: A game of cat and mouse

1.) Petstages Madcap Stand Up Mouse: This is Kaci's favorite toy from the box. This is a soft toy filled with catnip that she loves to wrestle with. It has a cute little riddle on it too! $5.99

2.) Spot Mouse Chase Electronic Cat Toy: Luke loves this! It is a motion activated circling mouse that also has a laser beam. It has a scratch pad on top of the toy too which Luke loves stepping on when he is going after the mouse. This toy did not include batteries but PetGiftBox was nice enough to throw in a pack. $23.99 + $4.00 for batteries

3.) Companion Catnip Candy Mice: These are two small mice made out of canip. The cats love to lick these. Surprisingly they are not broken yet, usually hard cat nip balls get broken in seconds. $4.99

4.) Super Kitty Boinks: This is an interactive toy between you and your cat. You hold them and launch them out of your hand, it is a very fun bonding experience. The cats enjoy these. I do not leave them out when I am not playing with them since they are made of braided nylon and will get shredded easily. $4.99

5.) Feline Harvest Dental Treats: The cats can not get enough treats, especially dental treats! Luke has very bad breath and some gingivitis so dental treats are necessary. They both love the duck flavor. $4.99

Total Value: $48.99 This value includes the batteries even though they were an extra not listed on the info card. This was such a fun box and I loved how we got a super high value electronic toy what a nice surprise. This box is worth more than double the cost of a subscription so if your cats (or dogs) need new toys often then this subscription is for you! The cats are still enjoying playing with all their new toys.

The items in the box:

This months theme: 4th of July

1.) Dr. Daniel's Catnip Toy for Cats: Kaci is obsessed with this toy. She loves any toys filled with cat nip. I did take the blue ribbon off of this toy just because I was paranoid about the cats getting it off themselves and choking on it. $2.99

2.) Spot Kitty Fun Bopper: This is a plastic mesh toy with a foam ball attached that lights up when you bounce it. Luke loves the flashing lights. This toy will not last long though as he has already started ripping apart the plastic. $3.93

3.) Petstages Green Magic Dynamite: This is Kaci's favorite item in the box. She loves grabbing the toy and licking it. She also likes to sleep on it (weird, I know lol) and then she smells like cat nip after. $3.49

4.) Multi Pet Sparkle Ball: This toy is not getting much use yet since they are obsessed with the cat nip toys and the flashing lights, but don't worry they will notice all the feathers on this toy soon. $4.59

5.) Buddy Biscuits Grain Free Cat treats: Both the cats love these soft treats. These are made in the USA with real chicken and vegetables and are grain and gluten free. The cats love getting treats and these are easy to chew for Kaci since she has a small mouth. $2.99

Total Value: $17.99 Value wise this is probably one of the lowest boxes that we have received but the cats enjoy everything in the box so there is nothing that will be wasted. Also a lot of the toys are on sale on chewy.com so the value is based on sale prices so these would cost you a bit more with shipping and/or buying it in store anyway. The cats loved this box so for that reason it is worth the cost.


Kaci hogging all the toys.

The items in the box:

This months theme: Gone Fishing

1.) Petstages Crunch & Wrestle Fish: The cats usually love toys to kick but they have not really played with this toy yet. I have left it around but they seem to be checking out the other toys instead. $6.53

2.) Loving Pets Purrfectly Natural Shrimp Cat Treats: These were a huge hit! Anything fish flavored Kaci is addicted too and these are small and easy to eat! $2.44

3.) SmartyKat Tackle Fish Catnip Toy: This is for sure the favorite item in the box. Both cats love this toy but Luke is obsessed with it. He likes to grab the fish barbels ("whiskers"). I am not sure if they smell catnip in it as they do not go crazy like other catnip toys but they do love to play with this one. $4?

4.) Charming  Snapcat Toy: Kaci loves getting hit with the tail of this toy and then goes crazy with it. Her 2nd favorite item in the box. $10

5.) Amigo Cat Toy: This is Luke's 2nd favorite item in the box. He likes to grab and bite the rope type material and this toy is easy to throw around and chase for him. $5?

Total Value: $27.97 (based on estimated values, I could not find some of the exact products online. Still way worth it if you subscribe to a length based subscription)


The cats love when the boxes have a bunch of toys in them. Not all toys will be a hit so when there are a large variety of them I know that each cat will find something they like in the box. Any small treats are also a hit since Kaci has a "delicate mouth" and does not like large treats. She is a little princess.

Purex plus Clorox 2 Detergent Review & GIVEAWAY




Review:

The latest detergent I have been using is the new Purex plus Clorox 2 Detergent. This detergent is safe for colors (bleach free) and I have noticed that my colors are a bit more brighter than when using the original Purex Detergent. It is called "Clorox 2" because it contains an extra powerful boost of Clorox 2 Stain Fighters. Though, luckily, I have not had any stains on my clothes to remove, this detergent is supposed to remove 100 stains including: Chocolate, Tomato Sauce, Grass, Blood, Ice Cream, BBQ Sauce and more. 

This detergent comes in 2 scents: Original Fresh and Sunny Linen.  I tested the original fresh and the smell on your clothes afterwards is pretty much on par with other Purex Detergents. Some do not like how strong they can be but for me I like to know my clothes are clean. This detergent gets an A in my book!



Giveaway:

One lucky reader will receive 2 coupons for a FREE bottle of Purex Liquid or Powder Detergent! See the Rafflecopter below. All entries are optional but the more you do the better chance you have of winning. 
a Rafflecopter giveaway


RULES:
+ Must be 18 years or older
+ Must live in the United States
+ Giveaway Ends at 11:59PM ET on Saturday May 28th and the winner will be emailed at the email address they provided in the Rafflecopter form. The winner will have 48 hours to respond to the winning email or another winner will be picked. 






Purex provided me with a free sample in exchange for a review of the product. However, all opinions are my own and I do not recommend products that I will not use myself.

The items in the box:

This months theme: Howdy Partner

1.) Multipet Boot Catnip Filled Toy: Anything filled with catnip is a hit in this house!  $2.99

2.) Multipet Hat Catnip Filled ToyAlso filled with catnip but this toy is not as easy for Kaci to grab as the Boot toy. $2.99

3.) From the Field “Chewy” the Hemp Rope: This rope is "marinated" inside of a bag filled with catnip so this is very strong and Kaci went crazy for this! This is Kaci's favorite item in the box. $2.99

4.) Pet Gift Box Cowboy Crunch Treats: Kaci has a small mouth and these treats were on the larger side so she was not a fan of these. 


5.) Petgreens Medley Self Grow Pet Grass: We got a bag of grass to grow like this in a box last year. We will try it again and see how much Kaci eats of it. It really depends on her mood on any given day, lol.  $3.99

Total Value: $20+ depends on the value of the treats, they were a large bag. 


Kaci really enjoyed this box! The only thing she did not like are the treats but she enjoyed all of the catnip toys! We will also be trying out the grass so hopefully that will be a nice treat for her. The biggest hit in the box was the Chewy the Hemp Rope! The value of the box may be off since there were no prices listed on the info card so the prices are guesstimates based on web searches. I would have not found and picked up that item while out shopping so these boxes are worth the investment.

St. Ives Body Scrub and Body Lotion Review


Influenster sent me the St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Body Scrub and the St. Ives Refresh & Revive Pear Nectar & Soy Body Lotion to test out.

I love my bath products to have fruity scents so this is the perfect paring for me! The Body Scrub worked well at making my skin smooth but also did not irritate my skin in any way. I loved the Apricot smell and it was quick and easy to use in the shower. I liked that the Body Lotion was non-greasy, rubbed in easily, and the fresh but subtle Pear smell was great! Both products helped keep my skin moisturized. 

I have always known of the St. Ives brand but it was never one I was particularly drawn to. I am sure I have used it in the past when I was a kid but I have not purchased it as an adult. Now I will since I had an amazing experience with both products. These products only cost around $5 at Target and look to be even cheaper if you purchase on Jet.com with apparently is the up-and-coming Amazon competition!  

You can check out the St. Ives product page for more detailed information. All St. Ives products are made with 100% natural exfoliants and are paraben-free, hypo-allergenic and are dermatologist tested.


I received a sample to test from Influenster but all opinions are my own. If you would like to check out what Influenster is about or sign up to receive free products to test out yourself: influenster.com
