Who doesn’t love being pampered especially when it’s that time of the month? Thankfully Pink Parcel as always comes to the rescue with their amazing concept to equip us with our chosen sanitary items and make us feel that little more pampered with an array of beauty and lifestyle treats. For September, they’ve focused on the AW17 colour palette which are warm hues so you can expect to see these colours inside this month’s box whether it be the colour of the packaging or the shades of your products!

Pink Parcel is a subscription service for your monthly cycle who send you what you need, right when you need it as well as some lovely treats to brighten up those days of the month. With three dispatch dates to choose from, Pink Parcel literally take care of everything and will ship your box before your period is due. If you’re worried about flows and absorbencies, they have that covered too as you can choose your preferred brand as well as the type of sanitary items to suit your flow making it completely bespoke to your needs.

Without further ado here’s what you can expect to see inside this month’s Pink Parcel:

Up first and the product I was probably most excited to see is the Stylondon Oval Face Brush (RRP £7.99), a soft bristled brush which can be used to apply blusher, contour and finishing powder. The handle also ensures the correct pressure is applied.

Sticking to make-up, the second product out of the box is the Laritzy Cosmetics Lip Pencil (RRP £13.60 – shades may vary). I received the shade Deep Orchid which looks a little purple on me and unfortunately isn’t something I think I’ll be able to pull off but the creamy formula is so lovely to work with. The lip liner is also cruelty free, paraben free and enriched with powerful plant and fruit extracts, made in USA and are gluten free.

Sometimes I think Pink Parcel are mind readers as another product which grabbed my attention and is very welcomed addition is the Skinmono Foot Mask (RRP £9.99), a deeply replenishing serum foot mask that’s packed with shea butter, olive oil, tea tree and chamomile. It promises to smoothe cracked heels, soften hard skin and refresh and revive tired feet. I’m so looking forward to giving my feet a little pick me up as they’ve taken a bit of battering with all the house renovations going on at the moment – thank you Pink Parcel!

Up next is the Ciate Nail Polish in the shade Raspberry Collins (Full size RRP £9.00 – shades may vary) which is a vibrant summery pink so it’s not really an autumnal hue but nonetheless I’ll probably save this one for next summer!

Lastly is the Sebamed Feminine Intimate Wash (Travel size),  a cleaning agent to support the acid mantle against pathogenic micro-organisms. It is 100% free of soap and the low 3.8 pH value supports the ecological balance of normal micro-flora for genital protection. Sebamed Feminine Intimate Wash provides you with all the necessary ingredients for a fresh and clean wash whilst leaving you with a beautiful scent.

3. Tea and Sweet Treats – 2 items

As well as the beauty and lifestyle line up you can also expect to see a sample of tea/coffee and foodie treats the perfect mix to satisfy those cravings and as always they sure do hit the spot but always disappear so quickly!

Inside this month’s curation you can expect to see a brand new product launch from in the form of the Bakedin Chocolate Brownie Mug Mix and a sample of Peach & Rhubarb Tea tea from the London Tea Company

My Verdict

Once again Pink Parcel have delivered another happy package this month and although it did feel a little lacking on the line-up front in comparison to previous editions the opportunity to try out some new products, the fantastic value and size of the products and the addition of the chocolate mug mix definitely made up for the shortfall plus there’s two make-up items and a nail varnish – two of my favourite areas when it comes to beauty! I’m particularly looking forward to snuggling up with the Chocolate Brownie Mug Mix while I’ve got my Skimono Foot masks on! I really can’t fault Pink Parcel, it’s such a lovely pick-me up and you also get to try out and discover a host of beauty and lifestyle products – what’s not to love!

If you haven’t got on the Pink Parcel train yet then it’s definitely a subscription I highly recommend and the thrill of the surprise will not fail to make you look forward to that time of the month!

Pink Parcel Review – July 2017





*Pink Parcel – July 2017
Price of the Box per month: £10.50 including free postage
www.pinkparcel.co.uk

Today we have an unboxing and review of the July Pink Parcel and not only is it full of lovely surprises to lift the mood and help pamper us during that dreaded time of the month but it also completely eliminates the hassle of having to stock up last minute at the supermarket – something I really don’t miss! This month’s ‘Summer Chill’ edition is exactly that and features a pretty relaxed line-up and they’ve even managed to capture summer via scents and flavours which was such a lovely little touch! Once again it’s another solid line up and features a good balance on the beauty and lifestyle front from popular brands in addition to those that are little unknown. 

Pink Parcel is a subscription service for your monthly cycle who send you what you need, right when you need it as well as some lovely treats to brighten up those days of the month. With three dispatch dates to choose from, Pink Parcel literally take care of everything and will ship your box before your period is due. If you’re worried about flows and absorbencies, they have that covered too as you can choose your preferred brand as well as the type of sanitary items to suit your flow making it completely bespoke to your needs.

Without further ado here’s what you can expect to see inside this month’s Pink Parcel:

Up first we have the Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads (sample size x 5 pads) which are great little multi-taskers! Soaked with glycerin, glycolic acid and sodium hydroxide (a.k.a hyaluronic acid) among the top ingredients, the pads provide extra exfoliation and hydration. They also make great lazy-day fixes when you want to cleanse, exfoliate, tone, and hydrate, in one easy step. Unlike other pads I’ve tried, these actually feel good on the skin and the formula is so gentle that it doesn’t cause any irritation or stinging from the acids or alcohol. 

A pamper session wouldn’t be complete without a face mask and the Skin Lounge Firming Face Mask (RRP £4.00 -type may vary) promises to lift, restores firmness and provides vitality to dull and fatigued skin. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, trehalose and natural extracts of purslane and granada, this mask strengthens the skin’s elasticity and suppleness, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and signs of aging. Skin immediately appears more firm, toned and sculpted.

On the hair care front is a completely new discovery from a newly launched brand called Chirp who combine the finest ingredients Mother Nature has to offer, to create decadent products that soothe, revitalise, and rejuvenate your face, skin, and hair – naturally! Their Softnest Hair Mask (sample size) is specifically designed to deliver softer, shinier and more manageable hair and is infused with a unique blend of nourishing oils that are easily absorbed into your hair providing ultimate hydration and nutrients to every strand, to restore hair from the inside out. I can’t use chemical-laden hair products due to my extensions so this good sized sachet will definitely get used.  

Urban Veda was one of the first brands I took a liking to when I discovered the realm of beauty boxes so it’s lovely to be reacquainted again. Their Radiance Body Wash (Travel size 50ml) which by the way smells so lovely, is infused with brightening botanicals to enhance vitality and uplift lack-lustre skin and it’s packed with lots of goodness such as natural Ayurvedic herbs and botanical extracts.

Nothing says summer than the scent of coconuts and the Emily Victoria Candle (RRP £2.50) smells absolutely divine, comes in a cute miniature sized jar and burns for an incredible 8 hours!  

Lastly is the POM Friendship Bracelet (£12.99), a bespoke gold-plated bracelet that’s been created exclusivily for Pink Parcel subscribers. 

3.Tea and Sweet Treats – 2 items

As well as the beauty and lifestyle line up you can also expect to see a sample of tea/coffee and foodie treats the perfect mix to satisfy those cravings and as always they sure do hit the spot but always disappear so quickly!

Inside this month’s curation you can expect to see a packet of Joe & Sephs Coconut and Chia Popcorn, Truffles from Monty Bojangles (x3) and a Chill Out Mint Tea sample from Hoogly Tea

My Verdict

Another month, another well-thought out Pink Parcel! Covering all bases on the pampering front as well as incorporating those summer vibes I think they’ve done a fantastic job with their July edit – it certainly didn’t fail to lift the mood and the line-up was also very well balanced. I’m really looking forward to having a good pamper session this weekend minus the chocolate and popcorn which of course got eaten as soon as I photographed everything but all in all I thoroughly enjoyed unboxing all the goodies this month and if you can’t wait until August to see what Pink Parcel have in store then here’s a little sneak peek https://www.pinkparcel.co.uk/3-reasons-why-you-cant-miss-augusts-pink-parcel/

If you haven’t got on the Pink Parcel train yet then it’s definitely a subscription I highly recommend and the thrill of the surprise will not fail to make you look forward to that time of the month!
