Pink Parcel: November 2017

Saturday, November 25, 2017
I think we all love a good subscription box but they can be a little generic; however this one is a little different to the rest. Pink Parcel is a monthly subscription box that focuses on periods and pampering as during that time of the month, pampering and self care is a necessity. You can get a box for only £12.99 per month with free delivery!

The boxes are great value for money as not only do you receive some period essentials such as pads and tampons but you also receive lots of pampering products - the total value of the box is over £40 which is amazing. You can choose tampons, pads or a mixture of both, whatever you use.
This is my first Pink Parcel box and the timing was perfect! Unlike other subscription boxes, this one is packaged so beautifully and I love that the products come within smaller boxes so it's more of a mystery each month. It's such a pretty and well put together package on the whole which I wasn't expecting for the low price point.

Within the November box I received a load of pads and tampons as well as so many mini and full size pampering products from hand sanitiser, lipstick sealer, a highlighter, nail care, tea and many more products, none of which I've tried before.
Let's start with one of the best items in the box - the Cocoba Cocoa Dusted Salted Toffee Truffles! Why don't all subscription boxes contain chocolate? They sound incredibly delicious and are perfect for that time of the month when I *need* something sweet but it has to be small otherwise I will eat a whole chocolate bar...

There are so many lovely pampering products in the box as well as makeup items so let's move onto them. The Beauty Crop Glamazon Stick is a creamy highlighting crayon that is infused with cocoa butter and jojoba oil. It's a gorgeous but subtle golden highlighter that I've been using as an inner corner and brow bone highlighter - it's one of the nicest highlighters I've tried in a while. Also the packaging is so gorgeous!

The second makeup item is one I have tried but it was years ago - Lipcote is such an iconic brand that has been around for over 70 years. It's a lipstick sealer that I remember working really well but it did sting a little however I might give it a go again.
One product I always forgot to use are nail care products so this Nail HQ London All In One Multi-Solution is a great addition to the box for me. It contains açai berry and argan oil for dry, brittle and weak nails which doesn't really describe mine but I'll definitely give it a go.

Another product I have been neglecting to use recently have been face masks. The Beautanio Beauty Radiant Glow Sheet Mask is an adorable inclusion that is designed to brighten and plump the skin with papaya leaf extract, lemon extract, niacinamide, kiwi extract and more. It's a brand I haven't heard of before but I cannot wait to try it as my skin definitely needs to TLC.

Next up is a perfect handbag essential as it's the Swiss Clinic Sanitising Spray (10ml). I haven't seen a santizer in a spray bottle before but it's a great idea and ideal to keep in your handbag or in your car for when you need it.

Lastly for the pampering section is a sample of the Cuppanut Ginger and Tumeric Infusion Tea which I tried almost immediately and I love it. I am not a fan of 'normal' tea but I do love herbal, mint and green tea. Ginger is meant to be great for settling the stomach so it might be useful during your period - I don't know about you but I can feel so nauseous at times.
Lastly, as it's the UK's No.1 period box, there are obviously pads and tampons within the box! I have a mixture of tampons and pads but you can choose whichever you want. There are tampons as well as various sizes and types of pads which are separated into daytime use, nighttime use and sanitary pads/tampons to keep in your handbag.

I think this subscription box is a genius idea and I don't know why someone hasn't thought of it before! It's a practical but pampering box that is ideal for your time of the month as at that time, you need to make self cafe a priority. I wasn't expecting such a well presented box with so many items for the price - it's amazing value for money and I cannot recommend it enough!

Have you tried a Pink Parcel box? Have you tried any of the pampering items included?

  6. This is so odd, I'm not sure how I feel about making that much of a fuss over it though, getting a box and all that jazz, think I would rather spend it on ice cream lol
