Review: Pink Parcel monthly box

Pink Parcel Subscription October 2016

In the ever-growing world of subscription boxes, it’s always satisfying to find something a bit different. I’ve written about various lovely things to get through your letterbox here and here, and I’ve found another gem in Pink Parcel. It’s not the only monthly box that combines period supplies with treats, but it is one of the most impressive, I think.

It’s not a one-size-fits-all kinda thing – you choose your preference of product (tampons, pads, or both), the absorbency and brand, and the date that you need them to arrive. I went for a mixed box, with Tampax Pearl and Always, to be delivered on 28th of the month. The boxes are sent Royal Mail Tracked Delivery, so unless there’s a major postal cock-up, they should always arrive when you want them to. I love how the boxes are laid out, with a cute pouch to stick in your bag to help avoid the inevitable ‘reach for the purse, scatter tampons everywhere’ moment.

Pink Parcel Contents Oct 16

I didn’t sneak a look at the list of goodies included and I was so surprised by the number of things Pink Parcel have managed to stuff into the ‘For You’ box. Food-wise, there’s a soothing teabag and a slice of Tipple Tails Coco Bazaar cake, which is a boozy chocolate fruitcake that Mr Mouse has snaffled due to my intense hatred of dried fruit.

The other items are all beauty-related (apart from a sample of Vita Coco coconut oil, which could fit into either food or beauty, I guess. It’ll be used for fried eggs in the Mouse House). There’s a Barry M single shadow in a staple mushroomy shade; a trio of Halloween-themed nail polishes from Rare Polishes, complete with nail stickers; an Anatomicals mattifying face mask; a sample of Sass Intimate Purifying Cleanser; Dr Paw Paw Essential Balm; and a travel size of the gorgeous Merumaya cleaning balm (review here). Phew!

I’m so impressed with Pink Parcel boxes. I got this one free, due to a discount code from The Pool, but the boxes are only £10.50 a month, including postage. You can also get your first box for £6.99 currently, on the Pink Parcel website. I’m definitely going to continue my subscription for the foreseeable future – it’s such good value, and feels more useful and ‘grown up’ than most beauty boxes. Just add painkillers…

Is the Pink Parcel something that you would try?
