Pink Parcel - Celebrating that time of the month


period care


So today I'm talking about periods, for some reason this topic is somehow still a little taboo yet as woman we all share this experience month in and month out and I think open dialogue about issues like this is really important as well as supporting your fellow lady especially as everyones experience is a little different.

Since having children mine have certainly changed, are heavier, more painful and I find my moods go up and down like a yo yo faster than before and talking to other mothers a similar age to myself (early thirties) they seem to have also seen a different before and after children. Saying that no matter if your a teenager or an adult it's not exactly the most pleasant or convenient time of the month as besides our moods it can often play havoc with our skin, we can feel bloated, it can affect our confidence and the list goes on.

So when Pink Parcel got in touch asking if I wanted to touch out their fantastic period subscription boxes not only was I very interested but I was also intrigued. I think if there is any time of the month we need to practise a little self care it's around our menstrual cycle and that is just what the Pink Parcel offers, a little boost just for us as well as covering all your sanitary needs.

So what is Pink Parcel exactly?

Well it's a period focused subscription box that not only provides your months needs of either towels or tampons but also some luxury beauty, seasonal surprises, herbal teas and artisan chocolates all for £12.99 (although cheaper again if you sign up for 3months+) with free postage. Plus it comes in a completely recyclable cardboard packaging, win!

So what did I think of the box?

Well firstly you are provided with more than a months supplies of sanitary towels (or tampons) including night time ones and even with a heavy or longer flow your certainly not going to run out. When it came to the treat box I was really impressed, the value on these products is amazing and you certainly get more than what you pay for.

Inside my box was

Maggie Anne Nail Varnish - this nail varnish won the Natural Health Awards in 2017 and I am loving this metallic Argentina shade - the nail varnished retail at £10.50

Sanatio Naturalis Sweet Orange Aromatherapy oil - I can't wait to use this and it retails at around £15

Pom Snowflake Earrings - these are so cute and retail at £8

The Beauty Crop Eyeshadow trio - such a sweet little mini eye shadow palette that is nourished with avocado and is cruelty free - retails at £8

So Susan Mesmer-eyes waterproof liquid eyeliner - made with main natural ingredients, vegan and cruelty free and retails at £18.99

English Laundry Signature purse spray - Full Size and retails at £16

At the moment I am debating wether to switch over to a mooncup or reasonable towels but for now this box is excellent and a great way to make sure you always have supplies as well as treating yourself to some fantastic curated products once a month. I really felt this box is good value which cannot be said for all subscription boxes. Also Pink Parcel currently have some limited edition t-shirts on their website in which £5 from each sale is donated to Bloody Good Period - an organisation that supplies period essentials to refugees and asylum seekers, so do check them out.



Thanks to Pink Parcel for providing me with a box to try out - Words and thoughts 100% my own

  4. You're right when you say we should practise a little self love especially during our time of the month! I am a completely different human that week! This little box seems filled to the brim of things to spoil yourself with!

  5. This looks like a lovely idea. I use a mooncup now though and would never go back to the more traditional sanitary towels now
