Hello Summer! Pink Parcel Summer Edit 

I had a very brief subscription from Pink Parcel a while ago but I am still on their mailing list so when the Summer Edit popped into my inbox I decided to place an order. 

A huge box arrived, carried to my door by the invisible postman (I never see him but parcels arrive and someone rings the doorbell and I once heard a man whistling). Inside was a flamingo print canvas bag full of goodies. 

I love flamingos – this bag is very me 

Scrub Love Coconut Affair Coffee Scrub – I’m not personally a fan of coffee scrubs probably because I don’t like coffee, but my fiance loves coffee in all forms so this will be his to use. 

Barnaby Cross Gemmotherapy Face Mask – not exactly sure what gems have to do with face masks but this seems to be a plant based sheet mask. 

Figs & Rouge Combat Cream- this is designed to eradicate blemishes, which is handy as my skin can be a bit reactive. 

Malibu SPF 30 Lotion – sun cream is an essential in my skincare arsenal. 

Spa To You Konjac Sponge – I am really not that keen on these sponges but some people love them. 

Your Tea Face Scrub – this has tea in it which is new, and claims to be gentle enough for sensitive skin. 

Colorsport 30 Day Brow Tint – dark brown shade so not for me. 

Pink Parcel For Now Tampons 

Beauty Papier Green Tea Blotting Paper – shiny t-zones be gone with soothing green tea extract. 

Stylondon Henna Tattoos – just no. 

Bic Soleil Razor 

Elegant Touch Nails (Colours vary)

Sass Intimate Purifying Cleanser – there’s a whole rant I could do about this. 

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner

Burt’s Bees Deep Cleansing Cream 

Jelly Pong Pong Eye Shadow Duo

Sportfx Sport Stamina Mascara

Amie Deep Pore Exfoliating Polish 

Bonnie XO Lipstick 

Pink Parcel make up bag 

Dr Paw Paw Original Balm (not pictured as it rolled under the bag!) 

Candy Kittens sweets – 2 sweets! 2 sweets! 

Estella Bartlett bracelet – this is pretty. 

Joe & Seph’s Coconut & Chia Popcorn (which was supposed to be Not.Corn made with sorghum) – leave out the chia seeds and this is s nice coconut popcorn. 

Yuyo Mint Tea

Yuyo Zing Tea

We Are Tea Soothe for tummy relief

Make up close ups 

Bit of a mixed bag (quite literally). Some of these things I will definitely use but others will be going to new homes.

Pink Parcel – it’s a monthly thing

That ‘time of the month’ can be a nightmare of cramps, moods and demands for chocolate (that may just be me!)

There are now a few lifestyle boxes aimed at making things a little more bearable.

Pink Parcel is one of them.


It’s quite a large box, but slim enough for most letterboxes.

Inside is everything you need. On the site you select how long and heavy your period is and when it’s next due. They work out what you need (choose between tampons, towels or a mixture of both) and they provide you with your brand too.


The pads I selected (I don’t get on with tampons) came parcelled out as ‘for now’, ‘for later’ and ‘for bedtime’. The ‘for now’ are in a little cloth bag to tuck into your handbag or stash in the bathroom.

As well as the essentials, Pink Parcel also send you a bundle of goodies to help get you through the worst moments.


This month’s extras are; Organic Surge Intensive Smoothing Serum, Green People scent free sun lotion, L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes mascara, Pina Colada Cocktail Shaker lip balm in coconut, Novus citrus chamomile tea pyramid, Cocoba hot chocolate dipping spoon, Bandzee hair bands.

Like a mini beauty box within a box really.


To be honest I don’t know if I’d have this every month – pads are fairly reasonable and usually on an offer in the supermarket or Boots, so I stock up then.

The extras are nice, sweet idea but not nearly enough chocolate for me! It has arrived just ahead of being needed, which is good and is quite discreet in terms of packaging – it doesn’t scream “Aunt Flo’s coming, batten down the hatches!” which is good, especially if you don’t live alone.

At the moment your first box is only £5.95 so if you think this might be for you, head over to the website and order yours.
