Hounds & Hers Review By Nazia & Jasper – November 2018

I came across the website for Hounds & Hers whilst browsing for dog toys for my adorable doggo Jasper and was instantly intrigued by the concept of a box catering for both women and their fur babies! I emailed them straight away and when Emma agreed on a review, I was positively thrilled! We buy subscription boxes for ourselves, children, friends, partners and other members of the family so why not our beloved pets? It a fun and simple way of delivering treats to both you and your pooch!

I’d like to say a big thank you to the wonderful Emma for sending me and Jasper this box to review. To see what we thought you can watch our live unboxing here on our YouTube channel:

What is Hounds & Hers

Hounds & Hers is a new luxury subscription box tailored half for yourself and half for your dog! What more could you ask for?! Their boxes will contain products such as alcohol, skincare and lifestyle products for yourself, and products such as toys, treats and other accessories for your dog!

After launching their partner company, Forelock & Fringe, when receiving new products every month, they saw the excitement on their two Shihzus faces, and realised that they would love to receive a box every month! They realised that there was nothing on the market that catered for both you and your furry friend, and that is how Hounds and Hers was created! If you’re also a horse lover check out their Horses, Skincare & Alcohol subscription box at Forelock & Fringe.

What do you get?

Their theme is Dogs, Skincare and Alcohol, because you need a treat too! Each box will feature 2-4 products for your dog, for example toys, treats and shampoo’s etc. The other half will be 2-4 products for you, such as alcohol, chocolate/sweets and skincare products.

What we thought:

The box arrived by Royal Mail 2nd class postage in a grey jiffy bag with my address, and fragile written on two large stickers on the front and back of the bag. Inside was a medium sized recyclable box that has the Hounds & Hers logo printed on the front and side. Inside the box I found a lovely welcome note and a contents card detailing the products within. On the back of the contents card are the words ”a house is not a home without a dog,” a statement that is very true in my house! The items are carefully wrapped in several layers of tissue paper and sealed with a sticker with the logo on.

Vino Spumante Prosecco D.O.C. 

At the end of a long busy week I like to treat myself to a cold glass of fizz, so I always have a bottle kept chilled in the fridge so it’s no surprise that I was happy to see this in the box! A beautifully balanced, fresh, lively prosecco with light crisp citrus aromas and flavours. A tangy finish and very easy drinking. It is light with enough personality to enjoy on its own but also the perfect mixer for a peach Bellini or my favourite cocktail Kir Royale! Enjoy a glass on its own or alongside a meal. If you don’t drink alcohol don’t fret, a non-alcoholic beverage can also be requested upon order.

Optiat “Hit The Sheets” Vanilla Velvet Exfoliating Coffee Scrub

Vanilla Velvet Coffee Scrub is blended with vanilla extract, alongside softening shea butter, which soothes and softens your skin. As if it could get any better, this scrub is made by hand in the UK using natural, vegan ingredients and delivered in 100% recyclable packaging. I already own a few of the Optiat coffee scrub range but coincidentally I haven’t used this one before! It smells absolutely divine and really feels great on my skin. The coffee grains are big enough to provide you with a little massage, without scratching or aggravating the skin like some scrubs can, but still does the job of getting rid of dead skin cells and leaves my skin super soft and smooth. As expected, it does get a little messy, but the scrub is easy to rinse away without staining the shower. By far the best coffee scrub on the market and I really like that it is a natural and ethical product!

EcoHound Dispenser

Ecohound dog waste bags for pet owners who care about dogs, the environment and our planet. Handy little biodegradable olive coloured dog waste bags that are thick and durable so there’s no risk of accidentally putting your fingers through or ripping them. Encased in a reusable plastic dispenser that has a Velcro strap which can easily be attached to your pooch’s lead or collar. The bottom of the dispenser twists off allowing you to easily refill with more bags. This pack came with 15 bags which was enough to use for several walks.

Ancol Naturespaws Rope

Jasper has many toys and he especially loves toys he can chew and throw around. Made from 100% natural biodegradable cotton rope and is naturally strong which means it is ideal for playing tug of war or playing fetch. Jasper has had a lot of fun running around with this in his mouth in the garden and sitting chewing it in his bed. The fibrous material is strong enough to withstand his vigorous chewing, while also being incredibly good for cleaning his teeth. It is also exceptionally easy to wash which is important because many of Jasper’s dog toys end up extremely smelly after a few days or more of being subjected to dog slobber and being thrown around outside.

Neoh & Nobo Dog Biscuits – Peanut Butter & Blueberry

Jasper absolutely loves the flavour of these biscuits and was not content with only 2 a day – he’s a little on the heavier side so two is more than enough! These light and crunchy handmade bone shaped biscuits contain just 9 natural and organic ingredients and have a really pleasant smell which even had me tempted to try them (obviously I didn’t though!) They are packaged in a handy resealable pouch so easy to reseal to keep them fresher for longer. These treats are also hypoallergenic so especially good for pups with sensitive tummies.

The Marshmallowist – Blueberry & Gin Marshmallows

6 signature marshmallows crafted from whole blueberries and matched with gin. I believe marshmallows are a truly indulgent treat that go well with almost any flavour, they’re also one of my favourite sweet treats! These mallows have been paired with Sipsmith gin which is a match made in heaven! They taste mouth-watering good either eaten straight from the box or toasted to perfection for a delectably gooey marshmallow moment! They contain no flavourings or additives, so you can be safe in knowing there are no added nonsense in these perfect marshmallow squares. The box design is very stylish and elegant, and the marshmallows have a lovely light dusting of purple which adds a nice pop of colour.

Verdict:

I am so impressed with everything in this box, I feel like it’s been perfectly put together especially for me and Jasper! All the products suit us down to the t and we’ve had a ball trying out all the items. I love that my best friend gets to also enjoy the pleasures of receiving treats through the post too– he certainly knew this box was for him! I like the variety of products provided for both me and Jasper and we certainly both felt very pampered! This box suits dogs of all shapes and sizes so both you and your dog can now enjoy your treats together so what are you waiting for, head on over to their website and order your first box for only £20 using our discount code!
