That ‘time of the month’ can be a nightmare of cramps, moods and demands for chocolate (that may just be me!)
There are now a few lifestyle boxes aimed at making things a little more bearable.
Pink Parcel is one of them.
It’s quite a large box, but slim enough for most letterboxes.
Inside is everything you need. On the site you select how long and heavy your period is and when it’s next due. They work out what you need (choose between tampons, towels or a mixture of both) and they provide you with your brand too.
The pads I selected (I don’t get on with tampons) came parcelled out as ‘for now’, ‘for later’ and ‘for bedtime’. The ‘for now’ are in a little cloth bag to tuck into your handbag or stash in the bathroom.
As well as the essentials, Pink Parcel also send you a bundle of goodies to help get you through the worst moments.
This month’s extras are; Organic Surge Intensive Smoothing Serum, Green People scent free sun lotion, L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes mascara, Pina Colada Cocktail Shaker lip balm in coconut, Novus citrus chamomile tea pyramid, Cocoba hot chocolate dipping spoon, Bandzee hair bands.
Like a mini beauty box within a box really.
To be honest I don’t know if I’d have this every month – pads are fairly reasonable and usually on an offer in the supermarket or Boots, so I stock up then.
The extras are nice, sweet idea but not nearly enough chocolate for me! It has arrived just ahead of being needed, which is good and is quite discreet in terms of packaging – it doesn’t scream “Aunt Flo’s coming, batten down the hatches!” which is good, especially if you don’t live alone.
At the moment your first box is only £5.95 so if you think this might be for you, head over to the website and order yours.
