Pink Parcel May 2015

It is a truth universally acknowledged that periods suck, but the Pink Parcel subscription service helps to soften the blow slightly by sending a monthly care package with your supply of tampons/sanitary towels as well as some goodies to cheer you up. Suddenly that time of the month seems less daunting.

Pink Parcel / £9.99 (including delivery!) per month

Alongside 25 tampons or towels of your choice from trusted brands Always, Tampax, Lil-Lets and Kotex - including night-time versions and even a little bag to take your supplies on the go with you - your monthly box comes complete with a few beauty and food items to comfort you when you need it most. I got 2 edible goodies, one of which was a small bar of Milk Chocolate with Butterscotch from Montezuma, which is one of my favourite chocolate brands! I also received a sachet of Original Sea Salted Caramel Drinking Fudge from Fudge Kitchen, which can be drank cold or warm, with or without dairy, and can even be added to a frappé, a smoothie or a milkshake - what a great little treat!

Flamingo Candles are having a bit of a moment right now with their gorgeous scents and cute packaging, so I was really happy to see a sizeable Green Apple Scent Melt of theirs in the box! It came packaged in a little green tissue and it smells so strongly that I could pick up on the apple-iness the moment I opened the box. At £2 per melt, I am sure to be buying more of these - I've got my eye on some of the cocktail fragrances next!

Onto the beauty items, and it's safe to say they've done a good job with these little gems! A 50ml bottle of L'Occitane's amazing Immortelle Essential Face Water is the absolute star of this box and is something I've wanted to try for ages. I used it straight away upon opening the box and every morning and night since, and I am really enjoying that it is really refreshing and hydrating. It aims to firm the skin and multiply collagen production by six times so I'll keep you posted on the long-term effects!

I've never tried anything from Richard Ward but I know their products get good reviews, so I was really happy to get a travel sized bottle of their Couture HydraSlim Shampoo for thick, dry and coarse hair. I know I'll be travelling to Edinburgh and visiting Lancaster again in the next month so this mini bottle will come in really handy to save space in my vanity case, and it smells delicious so that's a huge bonus!

Last but certainly not least, a lovely face mask from Anatomicals was included - you could spot Anatomicals packaging from a mile off, couldn't you? - and I'm really excited by the fact that instead of the regular peel or mud mask, this one is a one-use cloth mask which you lay on your face instead of actually applying any product directly. It is called the Botanical Hydrating Rose Face Mask, and it retails at £4 for a pack of two. I've used rose as an ingredient in skincare before and I absolutely loved how hydrating it was, and as I'm struggling with hydration at the moment I'm really looking forward to using this little baby. I'll let you know once I've put it to the test!

In all, I'm incredibly impressed with my first ever Pink Parcel. Although it seems quite pricey - £10 a month for your period?! - it means I don't have to worry about going out to buy monthly supplies, or face that dreaded moment when you run out and have to nip to the shops to stock up! The products I received this month are really fab, and I think are worth that price alone even without the sanitary towels, so for me it's a no-brainer. Now I can look forward to that time of the month!

Have you tried Pink Parcel? I'd love to know your experiences with it!

    1. No problem, Leah! I'm glad you enjoyed it. It's a great little box and really inexpensive considering the products I got. It's such a relief not having to remember to stock up each month too! Xx
