You might think, ‘oh yet again another subscription box’, but Pink Parcel is the first and only monthly box dedicated to bringing you the period essentials directly to your door, alongside a specially curated selection of premium beauty, skincare and lifestyle products.

Its been curated with everything you need to get you through those few days and a few extras for when you need that ‘pick me up’. Looking after yourself is key and especially when you’ll now have something to look forward to every month.

From tampons to pads, the premium box – small enough to fit through your letterbox –  includes period essentials from your trusted brands, neatly packaged in discreet and stylish pouches ‘For Now’, ‘For Night’ and ‘For Later’ so you have exactly what you need, when you need it.

A Monthly Thing

Pink Parcel is owned by It’s A Monthly Thing and they cover everything to do with periods, including information, education and female empowering events. Their new project aims to connect a network of small, grass-roots period organisations and charities to utilise one another, donating the unused period products from our subscriptions boxes which then go to vulnerable people all over the UK. To prevent waste and encourage you to give back, their new scheme allows Pink Parcel subscribers to send back any unwanted and unused products for free to us and we’ll redistribute them to The Red Box Project, Binti and The York Road Project.

The Glow Edition

This month we tried out the July edit, which is perfect for summer and aptly titled the ‘Glow Edition’. Brand partners included: We Are Tea, Joe & Seph’s, Balance Me, Magnitone, Mudmasky and Jelly Pong Pong.

Your monthly gift comes with monthly gifts too. They’ll leave you feeling fresh, relaxed and fabulous. It’s all about the little things right?

Not only that, minis are great for travel and they give you a chance to try out a new beauty, skincare and lifestyle products without committing to them. We loved the Jelly Pong Pong Stardrops Light Activated Glow Drops which gives the perfect summer glow without being too blinding. These are perfect for mixing with your everyday foundation, moisturiser or wearing alone on high points like cheeks and shoulders. After dousing ourselves in the glow drops, we indulged in the We Are Tea Super Berry Infusion along with the Joe and Seph’s popcorn, keeping us healthy from the inside out.
