When will it arrive?

The beauty of this box is it works around you and your period. You can select when you’d like the box to arrive, ensuring you receive your sanitary products and feel good items at just the right time. The Parcel is also the perfect size to fit through most letterboxes and is discretely packaged.

What’s inside?

First and foremost, sanitary products! When joining Pink Parcel you have the option of selecting the type of products you’d like to receive – pads, tampons or a mixture. Not only that, you can also choose which brands to receive along with your favoured fit. I love the way in which this box is packaged, classy and discrete. A small pink cotton bag contains 6 of my chosen daytime pads along with 5 liners. A ribbon drawstring ensures nothing can fall out and in all honesty at a glance nobody would be aware of its contents. A grey box labelled ‘for later’ contains a further 10 daytime pads, you really do receive a good quantity! A smaller grey box, labelled ‘for night’, contains 5 nighttime pads from the very same brand. The sanitary products provided are based on an average 5 day cycle, this number is definitely sufficient for myself.

I’m sure I speak for all subscribers when I say my favourite element of this box is the ‘for you’ section. This for me is my little box of pampering goodies during Mother Nature’s regular visit.
GreenFrog Botanic Natural Body Wash in Relaxing Geranium & Peppermint 50ml Approximately £1.49 (300ml RRP £8.95)
As you may have seen on my live unboxing, I was surprised to receive a body wash. Mainly due to the fact that for some unknown reason they very rarely feature as a product within subscription boxes. This product however is a pleasant surprise and smells beautiful! I was expecting it to be very overpowering, not ok dissimilar to other peppermint shower products I’ve tried previously. Gentle on the nose, lathers up well and leaves the skin feeling clean and soft! This product proudly states it is cruelty free, another big thumbs up for protecting our furry friends!


Jelly Pong Pong Lip Scrub in Coffee+Coconut 10ml RRP £15.00
Who doesn’t love a lip scrub? The perfect way to smooth dry and chapped lips before treating them to some much needed tlc. Perfectly sized to fit in your handbag, this lip scrub smells lush! The sweetness of coconut, teamed with the bitterness of coffee, I couldn’t resist licking my lips after applying. The texture of this scrub makes it easy to apply, not as clumsy as some I’ve used previously. One product I’ll. Kat definitely be hiding from my daughter!
Catherine Malandrino Style de Paris Purse Spray 10ml, worth Approximately £20.00
This perfume smells amazing! Fruity with a floral note, it lingers on the skin and doesn’t fade like some. I’m a fan of fruity scents so this perfume is ideal, a perfect addition to my growing collection and fits into my handbag perfectly. This perfume can be purchased in various sizes, however the 10ml provided in this months box I couldn’t seem to locate online. The nearest size would be an 8ml purse spray with a retail price of £16.00.

Cocoba Orange Milk Chocolate x 2 bitesized squares, worth Approximately 50p
 Yum! Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE chocolate! This chocolate is no exception with its smooth, orange, creamy texture – this rivals a well known brand. My only wish? There were more in my box! These chocolates were designed exclusively for Pink Parcel and although I’ve hunted high and low on the Cocoba website, sadly I confirm this orangey loveliness cannot be purchased. Do take a look at their other products however, they look just as scrummy!
The Beauty Crop Wing Woman Liquid Eyeliner 1.5g RRP £13.00
If you watched my live unboxing you’ll know I’m not a fan of liquid eyeliners, so gifted this product to my teenage daughter. After much oohing, ahhing, applying of foundation and eyeshadow…..the eyeliner was applied! Kaitlen was excited to try this product as she prefers liquid eyeliners, preferably the felt tip applicators, over others. Unfortunately, halfway through applying to her upper lash line the liner stopped working and had to be shaken vigorously in order to work again. Once working, application was perfect and provided a neat and bold lining of the eye. Tip : ensure you give it a good shake beforehand!

T Plus Multea Lemon and Peach Tea , worth Approx 25p (Box of 15 RRP £3.69)
I really wish I could have reviewed this product for you all but unfortunately this was missing from my Pink Parcel. Not a regular occurrence for this box, however I’m sure all subscribers will love this fruity sounding tea.
Beauty Pro Eye Therapy Under Eye Mask x 1, worth Approx £1.65 (Pack of 3 RRP £4.95)
I’ve seen similar under eye masks previously and been dubious as to how effective they actually are, preferring an all over face mask. I can confirm I’m officially converted and shall be purchasing these eye masks in the not so distant future! They felt a really good quality when removed from the packaging, applying under my eyes as directed. The directions advised to leave on for 20 minutes, however I was engrossed in a documentary and ended up leaving them on for nearly an hour! Upon removing, my under eye area felt slightly taught and smoother. In fact I attribute my nights sleep being a little better due to wearing these as I believe the cooling effect under my eye area felt rather relaxing! A definite purchase again and a surprising favourite from this months box.

Is it worth buying?

When totalled up this box value is approximately a staggering £51.89! Even when selecting the monthly subscription of £12.99, this box has paid for itself almost four times over. This in itself is an achievement, I love a box that can not only deliver in products but also in value. Pink Parcel repeatedly excel at providing a perfect selection of monthly treats, making it a worthy purchase in my opinion.
