Last month I received a new subscription box by Pink Parcel. This box is a little bit different and is actually designed for that time of the month us ladies find really depressing. No matter what you call it, on the blob, painting the town red, closed shop, painters & decorators, Aunt Flo or another strange concoction of words no-one enjoys it and we all wish that it was possible to just sleep it away in a coma. Unfortunately we can not so when I spotted this little box I thought it could be a great way to soften the blow and possibly create the feeling of want or excitement for the dreaded bleed.
Pink Parcel unlike other subscription services is sent on different days to each customer. They advise 5 days before your expected period to make sure you receive your package in time. When you sign up for this box, the website will prompt you to enter your cycle details and your last period dates, so whether you go 28 days, 26 or even 24 you will always receive your parcel on time. You can also request the absorbency and brand of tampons, Pink Parcel currently don't supply sanitary pads but by the end of this month the new website should be launched which will then include this option. Due to this being a slightly embarrassing subject for some the parcel is designed well and discreetly, it will also fit perfectly through any letter box so no awkward journey to the post office or the hunky neighbour next door. If at any point you wished to change the date you provided, brand or freeze your account, I found that there customer services were more than helpful.
As well as receiving a weeks supply of tampons you also receive a form of beauty box and a few supplies to keep you going through this rough time, included in my box was a selection of Tea Pigs tea bags and chocolate by Doisy & Dam. The beauty products inside last months box were four full size products,
As for the products you actually need (tampons) I chose a mixture of absorbency's to see me through. Altogether I received 25 tampons in boxes marked "for later" (below) which if you did require more tampons per month it states on the website that you can contact them by email and a pouch marked "for now" which was really handy to chuck in my handbag while keeping them discreet from prying eyes.
This subscription service is £5.95 for the first month and £9.95 there after but you may cancel at any point. For £5.95 I was really impressed with the quality of service from pink parcel. There has been a lot of thought put into how they supply, package and send your goods making it all the more easier to be won over by this box.
