Last year Pink Parcel really set the bar high, with a number of impressive boxes, so all eyes were set on their January box to see if they could match the standard set with their last few boxes.
Pink Parcel is a subscription service designed to deliver everything needed to get you through your period, plus some extra treats ‘just because’! Costing £12.99 per month (or £7.95 for your first box if you’re a newbie) it is very competitively priced and has always represented great value. So let’s delve into this month’s box, which has just landed!
First up is a set of 3 notepads especially designed for Pink Parcel. Featuring the mottos ‘Be Happy’, ‘Be Healthy’ and ‘Be Lovely’ these cute notepads are the perfect size for popping in your handbag and jotting down appointments and shopping lists. As a blogger they’ll be great for getting any ideas down on paper when I’m on the go!
Next we have a sample of Twenty First Century Herbs Skin Balm (full size RRP £9.95 for 60g), a 100% natural cream featuring French lavender, Calendula, oat straw, sweet almond and macadamia oil that is designed to target dry skin conditions and eczema.
Moving on is a Kiss Cosmetics Kiss Stick in Passionately Peach (RRP £7), a deeply conditioning, highly pigmented lipstick. I’m not sure the peachy-nude colour is really my cup of tea, but subscribers get one of 9 shades so you might get lucky with yours.
The second makeup offering is Bellapierre Shimmer Powder in Snowflake (RRP £12.99), which is a very seasonal sparkly white, softly milled loose powder that doubles up as an eyeshadow or highlighter. I’ve received the Bellapierre Shimmer Powder before from Pink Parcel, but luckily it was a different shade.
The final beauty item is a 3ml sample of Vichy Normaderm Beautifying Anti-Blemish Care (full size RRP £14.50 for 50ml). The cream provides 24 hour moisture whilst helping to tackle excess oil and the blemishes that are a common side-effect during your period. This is an exclusive for Pink Parcel and subscribers will be the first in the UK to try this newly launched cream.
Moving on to the tasty treats and we have a pack of Jealous Fruitilicious Sweets (RRP £2.50), Vanilla and Almond Tea from The London Tea Club (full size RRP £20 for 100g) and a sachet of Pip & Nut Coconut Almond Butter (full size RRP £23 for 20). The loose leaf tea looks and smells amazing, definitely a premium treat if tea is your thing, and I’m also intregued by the Coconut Almond Butter, which can be spread on toast or added to smoothies for a protein boost. I’m hitting the gym big time this year and I’ve been stocking up on protein snacks so this product is definitely something I’m excited to try!
Last but not least are the usual sanitary items (tampons or sanitary towels and a handful of panty liners, all tailored to your flow and brand preference), a pack of SASS Refreshing Wipes (RRP £2.50) and a Fab Little Bag Handbag Pack (RRP £1.99) which are designed to solve the age-old dilemma of how to dispose of your tampons.
At £12.99 this month’s box is definitely worth the money, and I love how Pink Parcel serves both a practical purpose as well as delivering a little bit of indulgence. Giving subscribers a choice of 3 delivery dates Pink Parcel makes sure that no matter when your cycle falls, your parcel will arrive just in time, so you don’t have to worry.
