That time of the month isn’t something any of us really look forward to – with a large helping of mood swings, tummy aches and ‘fat days’, so if there’s anything to make those few days tick over a little faster (and easier), I’m sure we would all grasp the opportunity with both hands. Luckily, while we’ve all been enjoying beauty subscription boxes, some clever ladies (and men) out there have devised something equally as exciting for periods – presenting to you – Pink Parcel.
With a handy timer that sends out your next box just as you’re about to start your period, you can be rest assured you never have to do a slightly awkward mad dash to the corner shop to buy over-priced (and bizarrely branded) tampons, as this will ensure you have enough ‘supplies’ until the next delivery.
Each ‘pink parcel’ comes packed to the brim with not only the essentials but some lovely (and rather luxurious) goodies to lift your mood (which in my case, is much needed as I tend to get very dramatic – one month I recall bursting into tears because my boyfriend wouldn’t walk to the shop to buy me garlic bread, oops). There’s a ‘for you’ box within the main parcel bursting with goodies such as a tube of Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream (which made my entire week), two pairs of false eyelashes (to overcome that hormonal breakout, crazed phase), a health friendly (but much needed) medium sized bar of Doisy & Dam dark chocolate, with goji and orange pieces and a packet of green tea.
As well as a large selection of pads, tampons and liners – they also include a tube of Gluco Tabs (they really have thought of everything) in raspberry flavour, dissolved in water for an instant pick me up and energy boost.
Posted through your letterbox in a handy – and very discreet flat parcel, your first box is £5.95 and then £9.95 thereafter which is really reasonable for something so necessary (in my opinion). They even do a version for teens, which features sweets, information on your first few periods (which I know would have been helpful for me as it definitely seemed very abnormal the first few times) and a couple of beauty items suited to younger skin. When everything seems to be getting on top of you, having a pink parcel pop through your letterbox is an instant pick me up! I’m tempted to ask for a subscription for Christmas – would that be weird?
Have you tried Pink Parcel – or a similar style subscription box? What do you think – would it lift your mood?
