This Month…I Tried Pink Parcel!

Categories Featured, This Month

Hi guys, this month I tried a Pink Parcel. Remember back in June, I said in my May This Month post that I wanted to expand this series and start reviewing products and services relating to periods? Well, after I put that post up, I made a list of possible things to try and Pink Parcel was on that list. Then a week or so after that an email lands in my inbox asking if I wanted to review one, and of course my answer was yes. It’s funny how stuff like that works out sometimes. 

They sent over their July box, which is called ‘The Glow Edit’. They definitely sent that to the right person… I already knew what a typical Pink Parcel looked like before I received my box, but I was genuinely amazed by how much you get.  

What is Pink Parcel? 

Before I go over what I got, for those of you who don’t know, Pink Parcel is a monthly period subscription service. You can choose whether you want a single month, or if you’d like a 3, 6 or 12-month contract. It comes with free delivery and is fully customisable. 

You can choose whether you get pads, tampons or a mixture of both. They also let you choose from all of the mainstream sanitary brands, so there’s a good chance you’ll get the exact same products you would choose if you went out to buy them yourself, without any of the hassle. Regardless of what you choose pads/ tampons wise, you also get some extra night pads and liners thrown in too. Sounds good, right? 

As well as your essentials, they also send you a little box of pick me ups, which include a snack and some beauty bits. All for as little as £11 a month.

What did I get? 

They sent me a mixed box with pads and tampons, all of their boxes are split into different sections.  

For now 

The for now section is a cute drawstring bag which contains some tampons and liners. These bags are handbag friendly, or you could even leave them in your bathroom if you didn’t want to leave a box of tampons hanging around.

For later 

For later is the box which contains the bulk of your products. This box contained a very generous amount of pads and tampons. 

For night  

This is pretty self-explanatory, the for night box contains your night pads.  

Pink Parcel

For you  

This is the bit you’ve been waiting for, the little pick me up box. I’d never tried any of the products that came in my box before, which was exciting. 

Pink Parcel

Magnitone Cloth – £14.99 for 2 

The product I was most excited about was the Magnitone cloth. I’ve seen these before online and I’ve always been intrigued by them. This cloth is supposedly magical, you simply wet it and it removes all of your makeup with just water. I haven’t used mine yet, but I can’t wait to see how well it performs.  

Mini Balance Me Micellar Water (30ml) – Full Size £16, 180ml  

This product is 99% natural ingredients and contains hyaluronic acid (my favourite skincare ingredient). The size of this bottle screams ‘take me on holiday with you’, so I’m adding this to my travel size box to take with me next time I’m travelling.  

Mudmasky Masks (15ml each) –  Both £60 for 60ml  

The box contained two masks, one was the Sleep Repair Renewal Nourishing mask and the other is the Facial Detox Purifying Recovery Mask.  

This heatwave has been doing all kinds of crazy things to my skin. This month my skin has been very dry due to the heat, but my pores have also been a little bit clogged around my t-zone where I’ve been loading on the powder in an attempt to stop my makeup sliding off my face.  

I made the most of having a couple of different skin issues and tried both of these masks. The purifying one is a standard clay mask, which I applied to my t-zone. One thing I really loved about this mask is that the instructions gave you different application times depending on your skin type. As someone with dry skin, clay masks can be a bit stripping sometimes, so I appreciated this. It said 7 minutes for dry skin. After about 8 minutes, I removed my mask (it came off very easily) and my skin felt incredibly soft and healthy. 

Then I used the sleep repair mask overnight. I love overnight masks because 1) there’s no danger of me leaving them on too long and 2) the very lazy side of me that wants to sit and watch Netflix really appreciates not having to get up and wash it off. You leave this mask on for 5-10 hours and wash it off the following morning. It doesn’t feel like you’re wearing a mask, I woke up with my skin feeling freshly moisturised. After washing it off, my skin actually felt healthy enough to wear a matte foundation that day. I haven’t worn matte foundation once since this heatwave started.  

Jelly Pong Pong Stardrops Light-Activated Glow Drops (6ml) – £32 

Can I just say, I’d never heard of this brand, but the name Jelly Pong Pong is one of the cutest things I’ve ever heard. This is a full size multipurpose highighting product. I was slightly concerned that the shade would be too golden for my fair skin but it sheers out nicely when blended. You can mix this in with foundation or moisturiser to make it more glowy or apply it directly as highlighter. I also added a bit to my eyes and it works well as a cream shadow base too.

Food  

As I mentioned earlier, you also get snacks. This box contained a packet of Joe & Seph’s popcorn with caramel and Belgian chocolate as well as a We Are Tea super berry infusion tea.  

Pink Parcel

Overall 

I’m so impressed with this box. As with all subscription boxes, the worth of the products is so much higher than what you pay for the box and the ease of having your essentials delivered to your door is amazing. I don’t know if you’ve ever been there, but getting a period early, or just forgetting to stock up and realising you don’t have any/ only have one in the house is a very unnecessary stressful experience.  

Have you ever used a period subscription service before? I’d wanted to try Pink Parcel for a really long time and I’m so happy I finally did. If you love the sound of this service as much as I do, you can use the code PP20 to get 20% off your first order.  

Until next time,

  1. What a cool package! I never even thought about such a box, but it seems really helpful, especially with all the snacks and other goodies that come with it.

  2. My periods are so irregular that I’m reluctant to sign up to a subscription box like this for the pads etc BUT I’d consider signing up simply for everything else you get, haha. I love the sounds of the Magnitone Cloth, the Jelly Pong Pong drops and both of those masks. I think the box is amazing value for what you get, definitely something I can recommend to friends. Thank you for sharing! x

  3. I’ve always wanted to try the Pink Parcel box but the only thing putting me off is having a guaranteed selection of cruelty free & vegan products, otherwise this whole concept is amazing & so convenient when it’s delivered each month, such great value for money too! I think the name Jelly Pong Pong also sounds adorable :’) x x

  4. It’s really interesting to see what’s inside the July box! I was lucky enough to review the June Pink Parcel and was really impressed with it. The mini micellar water is such a good idea and perfect for travelling. Yum, caramel and Belgian chocolate popcorn sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing Sophie <3 xx

  5. This parcel looks fantastic. Although my periods aren’t too bad compared to some I would definitely love to get my hands on this box. If you can’t treat yourself during your time of the month then when can you??

    1. I loved it! Thinking of subscribing myself, there isn’t a single product I haven’t liked so far. I’ve never heard of the betty box but it’s great that there’s a younger version too x

  6. I’ve never tried any sort of subscription box before whether that be purely beauty related ones or period ones like this one! I definitely think this is worth the money considering how expensive the full size products of these are and it’s great that you get to try them before committing to buying a full size in case it didn’t work for your skin! I’ve always wanted to try those Magnitone face cloths too! Great post lovely I’m definitely going to look into these!

  7. Well this box sounds AMAZING. I love all the bits you get in the extras and having your sanitary products to your door would be such a lifesaver. I can’t believe how much you get for your money in it! It’s like a beauty, period and pick-me-up box all in one. I really must sign myself up for once of these when I’ve got the money as I have a feeling it’d fast become my favourite thing!

  8. I tried a box from Pink Parcel and the contents were amazing. I got the most delicious (and very unique – Chilli and lime) chocolate that was a lovely pick me up. I think these boxes are such a nice treat at the time of the month when you can feel pretty sh*t.

  9. I absolutely love the period subscription boxes by pink parcel. I’ve actually been sent out the teen version, Betty Box, twice now & it’s amazing; you get so many pick me ups and more pads/tampons than you could need! I really like these boxes, I think they’d make really cute gifts as well. Lovely post xx

  10. I think it’s great that you’re trying out Pink Parcel, this totally aligns with the female health post you’ve published recently. I like that these boxes include the essentials for the monthly visitor. It’s great that it comes with a cleanser – this is when your hormones go crazy and cause acne @__@. The glow drops is interesting – I thought it was nail polish at first! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

  11. This is such a testimony to the law of attraction that they approached you, how crazy! Oh wow you really do get a lot of great stuff in these, I have the Sephora version of that just water cloth and absolutely love it, so great for the environment too! I don’t get periods because of the pill I’m on but would definitely be getting involved with this if I did. Its such a cute thing for a Mother to subscribe to for her daughter when she first gets one too, I’d definitely do that for my kids if these are still around!

  12. This is a really great concept and it’s surprising how much you get from one monthly box. It sounds like a great pick me up when your feeling a bit sluggish and cranky during you totm. I think it’s also good you can choose your subscription and don’t feel tied down for twelve months. Lovely post and great photos.

  14. I have wanted to try a Pink Parcel for a while now and the more reviews I read the more I want to try it! Okay so the Magnitone cloth sounds too good to be true, have you tried it yet!? That is really good that the mask tells you how is best to apply for different skin types. I have never seen that on a face-mask before! I think I would like a mask that I can leave on overnight, I would think that it is actually doing something. How have I never heard of Jelly Pong Pong before?!!? I am going to check them out just because of the name! Thanks for the review!
