Pink Parcel review

Pink Parcel review cover image

For those of us who get regular periods, they can either pass by almost unnoticed, or they can totally disrupt your every day life. Sometimes you just want the world to stop spinning so you can hole up in a duvet fort and feel sorry for yourself. Whether you’re having a good or bad period month, Pink Parcel are there to help you feel like your usual gorgeous self and get you back to killing every day life.

Let’s talk periods

Periods are different for everyone, but we can all agree that when they’re disruptive they are a total nuisance. The most important thing we can do for ourselves and for each other is to talk about them! It’s 2019 and periods should no longer be a taboo topic.

Pink Parcel tampons

I have suffered with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) for 9 years now, and this condition has made periods a huge part of my life. Each period is a sign that my treatment is working; (hopefully) my body is creating eggs and I’m fertile. On the other hand, some months my periods are absolute agony and on top of that my hormones are up and down like a yo-yo!

If you want to hear more about my PCOS story, explore my two-part blog post and my YouTube video.

About Pink Parcel

Pink Parcel is a monthly period subscription box which takes the hassle out of your monthly cycle. More than that, Pink Parcel encourages you to take the time you need for yourself at arguably the most needed time of the month.

Pink Parcel unboxed

This is such a great concept I can’t stop gushing about it to all my friends and family. Pink Parcel promise to deliver £40 worth of makeup and skincare, plus your chosen tampons and pads each month! I’ll go into the amazing costs and customisable options later on.

What’s included in your Pink Parcel?

There are 3 content options when ordering your first box or subscribing, and I think that this is a genius idea!

  1. The Needs
  2. The Wants
  3. All of it

The Needs

This option includes your preferred choice of tampons or pads (or both!). You can further personalise this box to choose your favourite femcare brand and pad/tampon sizes.

Pink Parcel 'For Now' tampons and panty liners

The Wants

With this option, each month you will receive a box of feel good PMS busting goodies. From luxe beauty, seasonal items, skincare, haircare to delicious treats! Pink Parcel really aren’t stingy on how much they give you from this section. I was so pleasantly surprised about the variety!

Pink Parcel 'The Wants' selections

From the July box I received:

  • Pore strip
  • Face mask
  • Cranberry feminine wipes
  • Banana powder
  • Overnight mask
  • Sleepy tea
  • Toffee apple & cinnamon popcorn

All of it

You can probably work this one out, but I’ll summarise just in case. This option will provide you with all of the above! For those of you who need the necessities as well as the pampering.

My thoughts

I was royally chuffed my ‘All of it’ Pink Parcel delivery, and I think that the value of this box WAY exceeds the cost. You could pay the same amount by only purchasing your monthly femcare products from the supermarket!

Pink Parcel night pads

In fact, I was so impressed that I have since subscribed for a monthly Pink Parcel myself, with my own money! I opted for the marginally cheaper ‘The Wants’ box, purely because I’ve recently started using a Moon Cup and don’t need the tampons and pads. If I still used femcare products I would go for ‘All of it’ because the price difference is so minimal.

How much does it cost?

I was so shocked when I was doing my research on Pink Parcel to discover just how low their costs are. Even better, there is no contract and no obligation! If the Pink Parcel doesn’t work for you, you can cancel at any time!

  • The Needs box = £5
  • The Wants box = £8
  • All of it box = £11

How incredible are these prices in all seriousness? One of my preferred brands of tampons is £3-5 per box! Pink Parcel takes the hassle out of rushing to the shops last minute and inevitably forking out £10 on PMS sweet treats (come on, we all do it).

Pink Parcel 'the wants' goodies

My best bits

  • Customisation, customisation and more customisation!
    • Pink Parcel have truly gone above and beyond to make sure that everyone’s needs are catered for in this box.
  • Choice delivery date
    • As I’m on the pill, I know exactly what date my period is going to come. It’s great that I could choose my own delivery date for my parcel so it can arrive just in time to cheer me up!
  • Low, low prices
    • I know I’m really going on about this, but I love a bargain, and I just can’t get over the prices!
  • The Pink Parcel community!
    • Pink Parcel has a really great blog called Pink Blog which talks about all things period/woman related and is a great read!
    • I also discovered their app ‘Pink’ which is amazing. You can track your period, write a diary, and have a daily ‘periodscope’ which will explain your feelings possibly caused by your hormones because of your time of month. I’ve personally found this super helpful. You can find the app by searching ‘Pink Parcel’ in your app store.

My haircare hero! JOICO Blonde Life review

JOICO Blonde Life review www.wingitwithjade.com

One of my least favourite things about maintaining bright blonde hair is how damaging it can be. Unfortunately I have the perfect example of the devastating affects of bleach… In late October 2016 my mum had finished touching up my silver roots with bleach and asked me what I wanted her to do with the leftover product. I wasn’t concentrating and I asked her to “just slap it all over”… Read more..

My Ultimate Pamper Party Experience Day

Ultimate Pamper Party Experience - www.wingitwithjade

Over the past couple of months my mental health hasn’t been up to scratch, and I’ve been dreaming about the ultimate pick-me-up Pamper Party which would make me feel more than okay again. Even just thinking about how I’d spend a whole day in absolute luxury has made me feel a little bit better. With my mental health back on track again, I thought I’d share with you all my ultimate pamper party day. Although some aspects of it are completely unattainable (such as a zero calorie pizza mountain… we all have dreams okay?!) other aspects are just a dream come true in terms of luxury (such as the Addictive Arts Perfume).  With some tweaks I fully intend to live out this little dream of mine.

Fab Little Bag discreet tampon disposal

Fab Little Bag discreet tampon disposal - www.wingitwithjade.com

Let’s talk tampons, and more importantly, how we get rid of them. I don’t know about you, but when I started my period I never once received a user manual on how to use or to dispose of sanitary waste. I don’t know where I got the notion from, but I just saw it as a given to throw tampons in the toilet. They seem pretty degradable and no one wants to see the evidence of my period in the bathroom bin. Especially not after a week – that might start to pong (sorry for the TMI but you know it’s true). In this post I’ll be sharing with you all the TRUTH about tampon disposal and my discovery of the Fab Little Bag, which has honestly put an end to all my tampon disposal worries. Read more..

My Little Box – May 2017

My Little Box May 2017 www.wingitwithjade

Oh look, we’re in June already. Yep, my timing is completely off but no matter! It was never my intention to post my My Little Box treasures each month when I signed up to this subscription box. My first box was amazing. My May box blew April straight out of the water, so I would be selfish to not share it with you all. The theme of this box is “Friday Night” which I loooove. Since coming home from University last year, I barely go out drinking now, especially not on a Friday night. Funnily enough, when I received this box on Thursday 11th May, I was actually going on a proper night out the next day… It’s like someone at My Little Box HQ just KNEW I would be needing it. As I write this, I am sipping my third glass of prosecco, getting into the party mood. I don’t want to put this off any longer, let’s delve straight in with why this months My Little Box had me grinning from ear to ear. Read more..

My Little Box Subscription Review – April Box

My Little Box Subscription Review, April Box - www.wingitwithjade

Who on this earth doesn’t love a good subscription box?! The only problem is finding the RIGHT subscription box. There are so many out there to choose from and the task of picking just one is a little daunting. Recently I ended my long-running Papergang subscription as I just wasn’t able to go through that level of stationary *sob*. So I thought I would re-invest that monthly payment into a new beauty/fashion/lifestyle subscription which ticks all the boxes. In this post I’ll be giving you the low down on the My Little Box subscription box and reviewing the April box goodies! So if you’re thinking of treating yourself to a surprise box of goodies in the form of a subscription box, keep reading on… Read more..

My Undo List – Things to STOP Doing

Undo List - Things I Want to Stop Doing www.wingitwithjade.com

I have always been a huge fan of creating lists. Lists about literally anything. Every day I have a to-do list which is ordered by priority, and I also set myself lists of goals to achieve – in a month, a year or five years. This hyper-organised style of living I’m sure isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I personally love to mark my progress and my achievements and to know that I’m always being my most productive self. At the end of December 2016, whilst others were making New Years resolutions, I decided to compile an Undo List for 2017. Read more..

Meal Prep with Sistema To Go Containers

Meal Prep with Sistema To Go Containers - www.wingitwithjade

Why do people make such a meal out of meal prep? With the right tools you can become an overnight meal prep pro! Unfortunately, I think many people give up before they even begin, assuming that it’s going to be a lot of effort for little return. If you’re one of those people – I’m about to change your life. A bold statement, but I’m sticking by it. I love my food, and I love taking GOOD food on the go with me. I just don’t see the point in buying extortionate breakfasts, lunches and snacks which are not only unhealthy, but also taste naff too. The Sistema To Go containers have been sooooo good to me over the past few months and honestly make my life just that little bit easier and set me up for a busy day at work/ out and about. In this post I’ll be going through each of my Sistema To Go containers and giving you some tasty meal ideas for those of you who are stumped for meal prep ideas or inspiration. Read more..

50 Romantic Movies to Watch this Valentines Day

Cover Image- 50 Romantic Movies to Watch this Valentines Day - www.wingitwithjade.com

It’s that time of year again, but it should be called marmite day because you either love Valentines Day, or you hate it with a burning passion. Either or. I sit on the fence with this one. On the one hand, I love that there’s a day to celebrate LOVE as a concept. Whether it be familial love, the undying love you have for your best friend(s) or the love of your life. What can I say? I just love love. On the other hand, I do appreciate that Valentines Day is just another day for the corporations to rinse you dry of your hard earned cash, and make you feel like money is how to show your loved ones that you care (GAHHH CAPITALISM RANT). Ahem … I don’t think money should be spent in excess for this day, but you should instead just shower each and every person you meet with love, love, love. And yep I’ll say it one more time; LOVE. So with Valentines Day in everyone’s mind this week, I thought I would write you all a list of 50 Romantic Movies to watch. Whether you’re on your own, with your friends and family, or with your soulmate. Not a single penny has to be spent, let’s just celebrate one of the most amazing feelings there is. Without any further passionate ramblings, here are my personal 50 favourite romantic movies, in no particular order: Read more..
