Pink parcel october 2018.

Hey there! Today i have Octobers pink parcel to show you, if you dont know what pink parcel is it is a monthly subscription service based on your period. With every box that you can tailor to arrive based on your cycle, you get three lots of either pads or tampons depending on what you personally choose, one for later, one for now and for night. You also get a little box of treats too!

Ive gotten pink parcel for well over a year now and its very good, i no longer worry about running out of pads or not having enough and the little box of goodies is a really nice treat to know is coming. The only thing that continues to bug me about pink parcel is that throughout the month there adverts will show one or two products from that month, so staying completely unspoiled isnt easy!

Anyway shall we have a look in this months box? this months theme is barefaced beauty, i will say theres no full sized products this month apart from the brush egg which is disappointing, specially considering it was late this month too, however they did message and say it would be, they owned up to it so im glad about that!


First off lets get the tea/coffee out of the way, this months tea is the Immunitea orange and blueberry £3.69 (for 15 bags, we get one). As ive said before, not a hot drinks person so this will go to someone else!

You always get a sweet/chocolate in the box, this month we got 2 squares of chocolate, one salted caramel one orange, ive oppsed and have no idea what the brand is! but to be honest, it wasnt the best so its not a massive lose.

First product are bandzee £6.95, hair ties that are meant to be much kinder and softer to your hair. These are very often included in pink parcels and im honestly just not a fan, they dont hold up your hair very well and stretch very quickly. This months are in a “fawn” print and are very not me!

Next up is the organic pharmacy rose facial cleansing gel £49.00 (for 100ml, we get 20ml) now organic pharmacy is known to be very pricey! but boy £50 for a face wash basically? i havent tried this yet, it has aloe vera, rosehip, rose and bilberry, im a big fan of rosehip so we shall see! i think organic pharmacy have appeared before in the form of a lip balm, a while ago!

Next sample is from a brand we have seen before in pink parcel as well, mudmasky, i said it last time and i will say it again that good grief they cost the earth! this time we have a sample of the mudmasky morning boost mask £60.00 (60ml, we get 20ml) at least we got a better sized sample this time! this mask is meant to be a very quick morning boost, only something to be left on for a minute, its meant to be energising, lifting, feeding, hydrating and smoothing! it has coffee in it, meaning to be like a cup of coffee for your skin basically! im excited to try this to be honest, we are seeing these 1 minute morning masks appear more and more lately.

A brand ive never seen before next called whats in it for me..?, and we got there body cleanser £6.00 (250ml, we got 50ml), it says “aloe vera, witch hazel and grapefruit extract to cleanse, along with peppermint and rosemary oil to invigorate the skin and body”. I am getting slight anatomicals vibes from this brand, with there tag line being “totally selfish, indulgent in love with yourself products”, im curious to see more of there stuff to be honest as im curious!

The last thing we got was the Kawaii enterprise kawaii brush egg £6.99, you could get lilac, blue or pink and i got lilac. This is techinally the only full sized product we got, but its a brush egg! i wont be using mine because i already have one and i honestly dont like them, if im gonna use something like this im going to use a mat because its easier.

I have to be honest that im disappointed with this months box, not only was i already a bit spoiled about the contents, it was late, theres a number of brands we have seen before or many times, and everything minus the egg brush is a sample. Im looking forward to trying out the mask, but thats all really.

Its a shame! and i hope November is better.

July 2018 Pink Parcel.


Hey! So im rather excited to bring you the first of many monthly posts on pink parcel! Pink parcel is the only monthly box i have ever stuck with, and have gotten for over a year now.

Pink Parcel is a monthly subscription service, for those that get periods!

 

In every box you get a fair amount of the period product of your choice, so in my case thats pads. you get a box full marked for later, a bag full for now, a box of night pads for later and then you get a box that is marked for you.

Now, the box marked for you is where all the fun things are! Inside the box marked for you there is always a tea bag, a sweet treat of some kind, one or two full sized beauty products and a few samples.

Pink parcel is £10.50 a month, you can choose a date it will arrive to suit your cycle & they also have a pink parcel store were you can buy a lot of the products they feature in the box! as you may be able to tell, i really adore pink parcel, ive been getting it for a year now and no more do i have those panicked moments of running out of pads, and plus i get chocolate and beauty products! win win.

Alright, shall i actually show you whats in Julys box now? This months theme is glowing skin, so lets see what that means!


first off, the sweet treat! these can be hit and miss, though there has been some really nice chocolate in here, this months is Joe & Sephs Popcorn with caramel & Belgian chocolate is £4 for 80g (you get 18g in the box). I havent tried it yet, im honestly not the biggest fan of popcorn! so i might give this to my mum, as she likes popcorn much more than i do.

The tea bag this month is the We are tea super berry infusion tea £2.99 for 75g (we got a bag), i have to be honest that i generally collect these tea bags for anyone else that wants them as i dont like tea!

next up we have the sample size products, so we have the balanceme flash cleanse micellar water  £16.00 for 180ml (we get 30ml). I love balance me products, i havent tried this micellar water just yet, i do like a good micellar water mainly for removing makeup swatches, makeup fall out clean & mistakes etc.

The two other samples we have are the Mudmasky sleep repair renewal nourishing mask  and the Mudmasky facial detox purifying detox mask £60.00 for 60ml (we get 15ml). Oh boy are these pricey! ive tried the sleep mask once, it doesnt feel heavy or anything and it sinks in, makes your skin feel soft but havent noticed anything other than that yet!

Alright onto the full size products! first up is the magn!tone wipe out the amazing microfibre cleansing cloth £14.99 for 2 (we got one). ohh i was so excited to see this in here! ive wanted to try one of these for ages, ive messed around with it a bit so far and im impressed!

and lastly there is the jelly pong pong cosmetics stardrops light-activated glow drops $34 (cant find a uk stocklist!). these are the popular highlighter drop things right now, these are in the colour supernova a bright gold, but sadly really not my colour so i havent opened them so i can give them away at some point!

so there you have it! i wasnt blown over by this months if im honest, but thats likely down too the drops not being my thing. Even so i am looking forward to seeing what i get next month.
