Eve’s Parcel Review by Mel – January 2019

My very first box of the year! Thank you to the very kind and lovely Sonia over at Eve’s Parcel for once again asking me to review her January Edition of Eve’s Parcel.

Eve’s Parcel are what I like to call ‘A best of both box’. This is because it has the convenience element, no more trips to the Supermarket for monthly period essentials, and also lots of treats! A completely guilt free box, you can tell your partners/husbands/children that this is an ESSENTIAL delivery. See how I have that down to a perfected art? Well, I am a box addict after all!

There is no mistaking the black and white striped box, it is very unique. It comes wrapped in a plastic mailing bag to ensure the contents are well protected and it is delivered by Royal Mail 2nd Class service. You can select your delivery date (I explain more about this further down).

This months edit is all about cleansing and detoxing. We all need that, all I have done is eat and drink. I am not complaining but I am ready for a break from it. The affirmation card is reading my thoughts as per. This year I will be buying a house, I mean you have to grow up at some point. I also booked a 2 week holiday to France, so loads to look forward to.

If you missed my live unboxing, do not worry, you can watch it back here on our YouTube Channel. Don’t forget to subscribe!…

So what is inside the box?

Total Box Value = £34.99

Now my box as I mention in the unboxing is Beauty/Pamper and treats only. I have no need at present for the essential side, which has to be my favourite thing about this box. You get to choose if you want to add them for an extra £2.99, or just £10 for what I received.

15% off your first box with the code ‘EVES15’

That makes this box more than 4 times the value, as the code above will get your first box for £8.50 plus P&P. That is a bargain and a half if you ask me!

How much does it cost?

  • For the box including Sanitary items – £12.99 plus £2.95 P&P
  • 3 Months Prepay is £38 (£12.66 per box) plus £2.95 x 3 P&P
  • For only the box of Beauty & Relaxation treats – £10 plus £2.95 P&P

How does it work?

Choose from 3 dates of arrival for your Eve’s Parcel:

  • 1st of the month
  • 10th of the month
  • 20th of the month

You can then choose which type of feminine hygiene products you wish to include, and which brand out of the following:

  • Always Ultra
  • Bodyform
  • Natracare (Organic brand)
  • Tampax

The options are really easy to select, the website is simple to use and I found it really quick to order.

Time to test out these treats…

Figs & Rouge – Pro Acneal Purifying Cleansing Facial Wash

My face lit up when I saw this in the box! I love their HA moisturiser, I use it already. I also knew before even looking that this would be worth a bit, and it retails at £20! That is twice the cost of this box already!

It is a gel cleanser (Facial Wash), it lathers up really easily and has a gorgeous luxurious scent to it. I am elated with this, honestly exactly the kind of thing I buy and I will use all of it.

MONU Warming Aromatic Mask

I have had this on while typing. I came home from an evening in Cardiff and my face was as cold as it is outside. I decided that it would be a good idea since it is a warming mask after all.

It went on really easily, I use a little mask brush and it took me all of 30 seconds to apply a thin layer. You leave it on for 10-15 minutes, I left mine more like 30; but I don’t think with these types of masks it ever does any harm. I always use a microfibre cloth to wash off as again it takes 30 seconds to do, less mess and also less water.

I have owned and used several masks from this brand, but I am really happy that this is a new one for me. I also think I will get around 8-10 uses from this tube as a little went a long way. My skin felt velvety soft afterwards, I can’t wait to use it again.

Natures Dream – Elifexir Flat Tummy Reducing and firming cream

I have not yet used this, I am unsure if it will do anything for my tummy as I feel after Christmas I am beyond help, in fact I was before then in honesty. I definitely need to give myself a good kick and get to a gym.

This is an unheard of brand to me. They do a lot of Natural Body care products, toning, firming and lifting. I am going to give it a go out of interest as I am pro Cruelty Free products and I also think their prices are very reasonable from what I have researched. The revitalising Leg Gel really interests me as I get very sore legs at night from being on the go a lot.

Eat Real Hummus Chips Sour Cream & Chive

I am so shocked at these! They taste like Quavers, with a teeny little extra tang to them. I actually like them. I know you look at healthy snacks and automatically think they will not be nice because your brain just sees heavy on the calories as yummy. I am going to get more of these because they sell them in my local Supermarket and at £1.99 for a 5 pack it is not much more than the less healthy equivalent, you are talking pence in difference. They are Gluten Free and Vegan too!

Jealous Sweets Happy Bears Apple & Lemon

I got to try 4 of these, I knew I would not get them past the tiny person. My 4 year old son Archie absolutely loves Gummy Bears. He even sings the song and plays it on Alexa. It drives me bonkers. I have had sweets from this brand before and try to buy them as an alternative because of the fact they are better for Archie. They were really tangy in flavour (the ones I managed to try), he said they were ‘delicious’. They are a bit more in price than the full sugar equivalent, but I think it is worth it when you consider the benefits.

PUKKA Cleanse Tea

You all know I am not a tea person, but this one is well placed in the box as it is a Cleanse Tea. I save them all so they never go to waste and gift them on once I have a bundle I will gift them on.

My Verdict?

I absolutely love this months edit, with the Figs & Rouge being a clear winner for me for my favourite item in the box. For me, Eve’s Parcel just keeps on improving, as I loved the December contents, and this month is even better for me. I am always telling people to support small businesses, this is one I see continuing to grow from strength to strength. I realise that there is an alternative to this box out there, but for me I would pay that tiny bit extra knowing that every box is packed with love, care, and passion.

So treat yourself to this box and don’t forget that you can get 15% off with the code ‘EVES15’ too. I have linked the website and social media handles below, go check them out…
