Pink Parcel - What Every Girl Needs

Pink Parcel, It's a monthly thing!

We've all heard of beauty boxes and food boxes, but what is Pink Parcel*? It's a monthly box that aims to make your time of the month more easier, and perhaps more enjoyable, yes I really did say that.


It comes beautifully presented in a sleek, compact box that is recyclable. They deliver 5 days before your cycle to be on the safe side.


The box is split into 3 sections. The for now section has a jiffy bag that's perfect for carrying some supply around with you, and includes some supply for your time of the month. The for later section has two boxes with the rest of your supply. Finally, the for you section has a mixture of goodies from various brands.


The packaging is all very discreet and cute. I don't subscribe to any beauty boxes but I think this is a great deal as you're paying for something that you would otherwise be buying, and getting some treats thrown in, all from the comfort of your home.


This is the for you box. I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened it, the goodies are amazing! They vary from box to box, but I got: a full size Garnier 5 sec Perfect Blur, a full size Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Maximum Volume Mascara in black (that retails for £21!), a full size Witch redness relief moisturiser (that I can't wait to try out on my red cheeks), a Teapigs tea bag, and some Doisy & Dam organic dark chocolate full of antioxidants.


Overall, I am really impressed! After seeing the samples that some people received from the big brand beauty boxes I wasn't very keen at all, but Pink Parcel have definitely upped the game. The first box costs £5.95 here, and then £9.95 afterwards.

Have you tried any boxes? What are your thoughts?

    1. My thoughts exactly, I've seen that a lot of the more expensive ones have sample sizes instead of full sizes :) xx

    1. It really is! Me too, for the amount you spend on the more expensive beauty boxes you don't really get much value, whereas this has everything! :) xx
