It’s that time of the month when, aside from being in a foul mood (thank you PMT), a lovely package from Pink Parcel lands on my doormat. A welcome change from boring mail, the Pink Parcel subscription service aims to banish the blues and make that time of the month a little bit more bearable; delivering essential sanitary products alongside an array of treats!
This is my third month subscribing to this service and each box has been fantastic. October was no exception and here’s what was packed into the box:
OPI Nail Varnish in Girl Color – Used by many professional nail salons, OPI’s polishes are chip resistant and long-wearing. The colour of this month’s varnish is a gorgeous pearlescent pink, which ties in with Breast Cancer Awareness month, and amazingly it’s a full size polish worth around £11!
L’Oreal Revitalift 10 Repair Day Cream – This multi-tasking moisturiser, which helps target 10 signs of ageing, helps skin to feel more toned and luminous. I haven’t tried anything from the L’Oreal Revitalift range before and this is a great opportunity to see how a mid range anti-aging product performs. Again this is the full 50ml product worth £15.
Kubiss Super Smooth Lip Gloss – This is a pink shimmery gloss infused with vitamin E and it has a very affordable RRP of £2.95 . It’s not a brand I’ve heard of before but I love trying new things, and the packaging is of a good quality and for a budget brand definitely looks as if it would retail for a few pounds more.
In addition to the beauty treats, we get a couple of tasty extras:
Teapigs Chocolate Flake Tea
After receiving the peppermint tea for 2 months i’m excited to try a different variety. I’ve never had a chocolate flavoured tea yet (I’m sure dropping a chocolate digestive into your brew doesn’t count!) so i’m looking forward to seeing if it’s a combination that works.
Doisy & Dam Ginger, Chilli Flakes & Hemp Seed chocolate
This is the 3rd variety of Doisy & Dam chocolate I’ve had the pleasure of sampling thanks to Pink Parcel! I love dark chocolate; it’s healthier than milk chocolate so makes me feel a little less guilty when i’m scoffing it!
Of course the USP of the Pink Parcel is the reliable delivery of sanitary products and as with every month I have my preferred brand and absorbancy of tampons tucked discretely away into boxes marked “for now” and “for later”, as well as a little cotton bag too, intended for popping into your handbag.
Costing just £9.95 (or £5.95 for the first box) Pink Parcel represents amazing value for money and each month it seems to go from strength to strength. It’s such a handy service and a genius concept!
As always, I love to hear from you so don’t forget to leave your comments below!
