It’s September and I’m posting the August box, naughty naughty, I am sorry! In my defence, though, when you see what was in the August box I think you’ll be very tempted to try out the September box because you’ll be amazed at how much you get.
I have tried out a Pink Parcel box before, but when they asked if I wanted to trial one, to possibly review, I thought it’d be a very good time for it. Post baby the last thing you want to have to stress about is sanitary products, so having a box that sends you your products, as well as some pretty awesome extras, is a really good idea.
When I tried Pink Parcel previously (ooh the alliteration), you could only get tampons which, for me, wasn’t ideal but now you can get pads which makes it much more appealing and widens the audience somewhat. And more than just deciding between tampons and towels, you can decide which brands and which absorbancy you want which is a really helpful feature, as one size definitely doesn’t fit all when it comes to periods!
When the box arrives, and you open it up, this is what you’re greeted with. It’s really well organised which is a nice added touch.
The pads are in a variety of boxes, which help you to organise when you’ll need different absorbency, as well as some coming in a little drawstring bag. I think the bag is a really nice touch as it’d be really handy to pop in to a handbag to keep things from getting lost and squished up in your bag.
In the last box you will find all the added extras and, my goodness, there’s lots of them (hint, this is just half). In the August box you will have found a box of Jealous Sweets
and, if you’ve read my blog before, you might remember that I am a massive fan of these (See my post here
), honestly they’re the best jelly/gummy sweets ever. The other foodie item is another that I’ve posted about before and another that I really enjoy Emily Fruit Crisps
) are seriously good and you can even feel healthy when eating them, a big win in my eyes.
It’s always nice to get some tea in a box, especially when it’s meant to be a self care type box and you can’t get healthier than Tea Pigs Matcha tea. I’ve tried this before and it’s really good and there’s so many suggested health benefits to Matcha tea too,
Lastly, for this part, is a really pretty Estella Bartlett bracelet which is really nice and is, alone, worth more than the box!
And, as if the food, drink and lifestyle bits weren’t enough, the other half of the box was filled with cosmetics! I’ve had the So Susan ‘Haute Light’ pencil in other boxes but it’s a nice product and something worth having in your collection – It’s a matte, nude toned pencil which is great for highlighting and covering up less happy areas of the skin.
The Sass product is an interesting one, it’s meant for the more intimate areas of the body and it’s to help keep things healthier in terms of hair control. It’s supposed to stop ingrown hairs, soothe the area post shave and stop hair regrowth. If this works I’m sure it could be a bit of a miracle product for many.
Last but not least is the Sunkissed ‘Shimmer Dust Brush’ – As you may see from the photo mine leaked, but the lovely people at Pink Parcel were more than happy to replace it for me. I declined because, in all honesty, I’m not a shimmery bronzer sort of person but I do think this is a great product for many other people. As summer is beginning to wane, why not keep yourself looking healthy and glowing with an easy to apply product like this?
And, lastly, we come to my favourite of the products. I love liquid lipsticks but have never heard of Cougar before so I’m more than happy to be able to try a new brand. Most importantly, though, I love the shade. It’s a perfect, slightly mauvey rose pink, I love it.
When you consider that Pink Parcel
is £10.50 (or £6.99 for your first box), it’s quite amazing how much you get! I mean you get the obvious sanitary products but the additional things are easily comparable as to what you’d get in any other beauty box (if not more) and the overall cost is less. You can colour me impressed.
