The main idea of Pink Parcel is to make sure you have enough pads, tampons, liners to get you through your period. You can choose which products you want included and the date you want them delivered by. I already have a pretty decent stockpile so I don't tend to run out, but this is a great way of making sure you always have what you need!
But there's also the added goodies, and for me they're what make Pink Parcel so special when you look at them in combination with the "feminine hygeine" (such a stupid name) products.
The theme of this month's Pink Parcel is International Women's Day, which was on March 8th, and these are the products I received....
2. Optiat Coffee Scrub (RRP £6.99 for 90G, £9.99 for 220G) - I love scrubs and I love coffee so this is a good mix for me, especially when my skin is particularly dry. You just use this like a normal scrub by rubbing onto damp skin using circular motions before rinsing. There are four scents, and I loved the "mouthwatering mandarin" that I received. I have a healthy supply of body scrubs at the minute, but when I'm looking to buy again I'll definitely consider this scrub from Optiat.
3. Balance Me Hyaluronic Plumping Mist (RRP £16.00 for 30ml) - Hyaluronic acid is a miracle worker in skincare, it gives instant and longlasting hydration that can make a real difference to how your skin looks and feels. This is perfect for just spraying onto your face either as part of your skincare, or to refresh makeup or even after a long flight when you just want to look more awake. I'll happily purchase the bigger size when this runs out because it really does make a difference to my skin's appearance.
5. Whittard of Chelsea English Rose Tea (RRP £5 for 25 teabags) - I'll be honest, I didn't drink this. I love my tea, but I'm really particular about what I drink and this just didn't smell right to me. But if you like a fruity tea then this might be something you like. Plus £2 from the sale of a full size caddy goes to The Eve Appeal so it's a good cause too!
7. Ape Snacks Coconut Snacks (RRP from £0.99 for 20g, various flavours) - These were really yummy, it's just a shame that there were only 3 in a packet! High in fibre, 1 of my 5 a day and tasty... where can I buy more?? If I can get my hands on these again I'll definitely be making them a permanent resident of my snack cupboard!
Overall, I loved the March 2018 Pink Parcel... it prepared me perfectly for my period with all of my favourite products, I found a lipstick I adore, some yummy snacks and an amazing facial oil that I'll be trying to make last for as long as possible. My first month was only £9.99, but a normal month is £12.99.
Initially, I thought I'd only be signing up for one month but I've decided to keep my subscription going to see what's in store for next month!
If you receive a Pink Parcel, I'd love to know your thoughts, or if you have any other subscription box recommendations let me know!
Stay safe, x
