I’m four months into my Pink Parcel subscription – the service that aims to make “that” time of the month a little more bearable – and i’m still a very happy customer.
As well as the necessary sanitary items you select according to your requirements and preference, and which are supplied in a cute black pouch to keep in your bag, each month Pink Parcel deliver a handful of beauty treats for you to look forward to – all for the bargainous price of £9.99!
November’s box actually landed last week but I had a nasty virus that confined me to bed and prevented me from blogging. I’m now feeling a more human however and have had chance to delve into the contents of the box.
ROC Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Anti-Age Moisturiser 15ml (RRP £4.99) – This moisturising cream provides 5 anti-ageing actions in one intensive moisturiser. Its rich formula promises to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and brown spots, firm sagging skin, replenish moisture and reveal a more radiant complexion. Used as a day cream I think the texture is perhaps a little too rich for my oil-prone skin, but I think it would be ideal as a night cream and I will use it as such.
Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream Skin Protectant 30ml (RRP £18) – Created over 30 years ago this is the skincare classic that soothes, restores and calms chapped, cracked, dry skin; taking care of any roughness, redness or minor skin irritations. I’ve used this cream before and it’s ideal in the winter months for protecting any skin that will be exposed to the harsh elements. It can also be used to tame stray brows or as a hydrating lip balm. A perfect all-rounder.
Eldora Lashes D152 and H122 (RRP £4.95 / pair) – Unfortunately I’m really not into wearing false lashes, so whilst i may give the plain pair a whirl, I’ll probably gift the ones with crystals to a more outgoing friend. If you don’t mind wearing false lashes however these are perfect for the approaching party season!
Gluco Tabs Juicy Raspberry 10 pack (RRP 95p) – Glucose tablets are great for a quick burst of energy during exercise or after illness.
Doisy & Dam Goji and Orange Chocolate – A bar of chocolate is the perfect pick me up when you’re feeling down and you can’t get much better than Doisy & Dam’s delicious dark chocolate. Not only is it extremely tasty but dark chocolate is high in antioxidants so you can enjoy your indulgent treat without the guilt.
Teapigs Mao Feng Green Tea Bag – Each month subscribers receive a Teapigs Tea Temple selected at random. So far I’ve had Peppermint and a Chocolate Flake tea, but this month I got a green tea Tea Temple. I’ve never been keen on green tea, although knowing of its health benefits I’ve often drank it under sufferance. I’m looking forward to trying the Teapigs blend because their quality is exceptional and I’ve enjoyed every tea of theirs so far.
This month has seen huge changes for Pink Parcel with the launch of a new Teen Box, the expansion to offer sanitary towels, and a brand new website. I was apprehensive that this relaunch may see a reduction in the quality of service or the value of box provided but suffice to say Pink Parcel this was not the case. I did have to re-register, as the details of present customers didn’t transfer over to the new site, but there was good customer service presence on social media (even out of hours) meaning that any queries got a prompt reply.
Once again the value and quality of this box is fantastic and has blown me away! If you’re interested in treating yourself to a Pink Parcel you can find out more here.
