Pink Parcel – August 2018: Holiday Essentials Edit

Never run out of your period essentials ever again with a subscription to Pink Parcel! Every month, they will send you an amazing selection of pampering, beauty and lifestyle products in addition to your essentials, so that you can have a happy period – it doesn’t get much better than that!

The Pink Parcel box is quite big and long and it contains different boxes within it so that it feels like Christmas opening everything up. Two of the boxes and a handy drawstring bag are dedicated to your period essentials and when you subscribe, you can choose which format (pads, tampons or a mix of both) and which brand that you would like to have. Below is an example of their mixed pads and tampons option, where you’ll receive tampons, panty liners, night pads and regular pads – and there’s more than enough to cover you for the whole month.

This month’s box is themed the Holiday Essentials Edit and you’ll find all of the following goodies in the ‘For You’ box:-

Spacemasks Self-Heating Eye Mask (RRP £15 for a box of 5)

The first product that I picked up was this intriguing Spacemasks Self-Heating Eye Mask which comes in a cute galaxy/star print packaging. Inside is a clever self-heating eye mask which has a dreamy scent of Jasmine and helps you to drift off into space, or sleep! It sounds perfect to use on a long haul flight.

English Laundry No7 For Her Purse Spray (10ml, RRP £60 for full-size 50ml)

Next up, there’s a handy purse spray from English Laundry. This scent is called No7 For Her and has notes of Jasmine, Sweet Vanilla and Sparkling Pear. It’s a very sensual floral fragrance that would be ideal to wear on evenings and nights out.

Laritzy Dew Pot in Utopia (full size, RRP £20)

Moving onto some makeup, you’ll receive a full-size Dew Pot from Laritzy in this month’s box and there’s a variety of shades available – I received the Utopia colour which is gorgeous! This multi-purpose product can be used on the cheeks, lips and lids to create a luminous glow. Super pretty and very easy to use.

Oryza Dewy Glow Beauty Balm (full size, RRP £11.95)

I haven’t heard of this brand before but this is another multipurpose product that would be brilliant for popping into your travel bag. Oryza’s Dewy Glow Beauty Balm can be used as a subtle highlighter for cheekbones, or as a rich and glossy balm for lips and cuticles. Suitable for sensitive skin, it’s enriched with Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter and Vitamin E, plus there’s UVA and UVB protection included in the formula too to help you stay safe in the sun.

Sebamed Clear Face Mattifying Cream (10ml travel size, full size retails for £5.69 for 50ml)

Look flawless in your holiday snaps with this clever mattifying cream from Sebamed. It keeps shine at bay with an oil-free formula which controls sebum production and helps to prevent breakouts. It also contains Aloe Vera and Hyaluronic Acid to keep skin soothed and hydrated all Summer long.

Candy Kittens Eton Mess Gourmet Sweets (RRP £1)

Ooo I love Candy Kittens! I haven’t tried this Eton Mess flavour before but I really enjoyed this pack – it kinda tastes like strawberries and cream, but was very sweet. Contains natural flavours, colours and real fruit juice for a more luxury treat. Yum!

Lyons No3 Rich & Full Bodied Coffee Bag (RRP £2.60 for a box of 18)

The last product in this month’s Pink Parcel is an interesting sample as it’s a coffee bag! Inside is an individually foil-wrapped bag which contains 100% freshly ground coffee. You make it just like you would a teabag and hey presto, delicious hot coffee! I definitely need to pick up a box of these for future holidays.

Our score: 9.8/ 10

What a great box from Pink Parcel! I loved the Holiday Essentials theme and have discovered some fab new products that I hadn't tried before. I especially loved the Candy Kittens, Lyons Coffee and the Laritzy Dew Pot.
