September Pink Parcel Review.

I came across the Pink Parcel brand mid-August and, after reading a few reviews, decided to give it a shot. I bought a one-time subscription of £12.99 for their September box, choosing to have it delivered on the 1st of the month, as my period usually arrives towards the end/start of the month. I was a little disappointed when I was informed it would be a week late, meaning I had to rush out and stock up on pads, but these things happen.

This month’s box is dedicated to The Eve Appeal, a charity that raises awareness for gynaecological cancer, as September is Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month. I have placed a link in this post so you can head over to their website for more information and to donate if you want to.

Now, onto the box!

This month, the Pink Parcel box came with a total of 5 liners, 5-night pads, and 15-day pads. You are able to pick whether you want pads, tampons, or a mixture of the two, as well as choose what brand you like. I prefer bodyform as I find them to be a lot more comfortable than other brands and are excellent at preventing leakages.

Overall, I’ll give this subscription box a 5/10. The look of the box could be a bit more fancy, rather than a grey box, perhaps changing the look monthly like other subscription boxes. The products I received were okay but I doubt I’ll order another box. I’m looking at trying birchbox or glossybox next, doing a few reviews and starting a little series on my blog! Let me know what subscription boxes you enjoy in the comments below.

  1. I think the box is a good idea but needs better execution. Firstly, it was a week-late meaning that you had to rush out to buy pads and there is a lack of products that you would actually use during your period, except for the dry shampoo. I am surprised there is no dark chocolate which most people crave during their period due to the amount of iron lost. x
