Periods. A taboo subject, let’s be honest. But for me periods have dictated my teens and have been well and truly shit. My periods have always been extremely heavy with awful periods pains that caused me to start the pill at around 13 years old because they were none stop and had no cycle. Even as an adult my periods affect me massively especially my hormones being so imbalanced, I constantly cry and my anxiety sky rockets.
When I saw the Pink Parcel I instantly fell in love. The Pink Parcel is a monthly subscription box that delivers all your periods needs to your door. They give you the option to choose pads, tampons or both and you get to choose the brands you like (which is great for me as I’m so picky when it comes to my periods!). The box includes chocolate treats, beauty products and self care goodies to help you feel a little better about that time of the month. I dread that time of the month so much so to receive something that’s packaged so beautifully and full of things that make me smile, it’s like a gift from me to me.
I was lucky enough to receive the November box and just had to tell you all about it as soon as I saw it!
The box comes in a black package making it completely unrecognisable so nobody would even know what the box is! Once you take off the wrapping, the box is a beautiful dark grey and pink colour, it looks so elegant and luxurious. Inside it has smaller individual boxes full of everything you could possibly need on your period.
Firstly, inside you have smaller boxes filled with pads and tampons for both day and night of your choice. They also come with a super cute little black bag that can easily be put into your handbag without anyone even knowing what it is!
Inside my favourite box is labelled “just for you”. Each month this is filled with different treats and goodies for you to enjoy. This months goodies were AMAZING!
It started with Cuppanut Tea, a herbal tea that is anti-inflammatory and high in antioxidants. This is just what you need for that period bloat!
It also included Cocoba truffles, these are silky salted toffee truffles. Oh my gosh, there we’re the BEST chocolates I have ever tried! What girl doesn’t NEED chocolate at that time of the month?
One product I was super excited about was the lipcote lipstick sealer! I’ve heard such great things about this and KNEW I had to give it a try. On my period not only does my skin break out but my lips become dry meaning lipsticks don’t last on me. This helps to keep my lips moisturised and keep my lipstick in place!
The most expensive product within the box is the Swiss clinic cleansing spray, a lemon scent spray with the pH the same as your face. This spray can be used on your hands, face and even your makeup brushes to help prevent those period breakouts! It retails at £18!
During my period my nails also become really brittle and break so when I saw the Nail HQ All in one oil I was so excited! This strengthens your weakened nails using hydrolysed collagen and rice protein and smells great!
You also get a The Beauty Crop Glamazon Stick. This beautiful golden highlight stick helps to emphasise that beautiful period glow you get (yes! This is a real thing!)
Finally and one of my favourites, is the Beautaniq beauty radiant glow face mask. Packed full of vitamin C and antioxidants this helps to promote skin cell regeneration and natural collagen production. Allowing you to treat yourself to some pampering all while doing good to your skin!
Overall, The Pink Parcel is just incredible. This little package each month would easily brighten anyone’s time of the month, making it a little less terrible. Honestly, I couldn’t recommend it more.
I wish I’d have known about it sooner!
