I love a good box and a box that means I don't have to panic buy period supplies is even better! Ms Flow do just that! This is their Trial Box* which is full of awesome.
They're a personalised subscription for that time of the month. You get to choose whether you want pads or tampons, what brand and absorbency level and leave the rest to them. Each month you get a supply of whatever protection you chose which comes sealed in little stripy paper bags (which are recyclable for you green people) along with lots of other goodies to pamper yourself and help prop you up during the hormonal mosh pit that is a period.
This is their Trial Box, perfect for those who want to "try before they buy" or in this case, subscribe. In this particular box you receive a selection of sanitary products which I think is a brilliant idea. I have been stuck in a rut of buying the same ones each month and never really veering away from my usual brand so I'm looking forward to seeing if anyone these could be my new favourites. I particularly like the look of the Natracare Organic, as you'll probably have noticed by now if you read my blog regularly, I'm a sucker for anything natural.
The full list of the pads and whathaveyou that you get are:
Always Ultra Sanitary Towels
Bodyform Sanitary Towels
Natracare Organic Sanitary Towels
Natracare Organic Tampons
Tampax Pearl Tampons
Tampax Compak Tampons
Tampax Compak Pearl Tampons
Lil lets Tampons
It would make an absolutely fantastic little gift for somebody who has just started their first period actually as it gives them a wide range of things to try first rather then buy multipacks of everything all at once.
Each month, along with your essentials, you will be sent a selection of luxury beauty, relaxation and indulgence products to help you through. Brilliant right? In this box I got:
ANATOMICALS CRUISIN' FOR A SNOOZIN' FULL SIZE
This is a little pot of sleep. It looks like a little pot of vaseline but it smells like lavender so I love it purely because of that. It's a sleep enhancing balm which you are supposed to massage into your temples or any other pulse points and it works its magic. Unfortunately I cannot accurately review this because I have a baby.
JASON ALOE VERA MOISTURISING CREME SAMPLE SIIZE
Jason has been a brand I've wanted to try for quite a while actually so I was quite pleased with this one. The smell is a bit weird at first, it kind of smells like a dentist but once it's on the your face it goes pretty quickly, once I'd put my make up on I couldn't smell it at all.
I really loved this sample, I wish it could have been bigger because it's actually started sorting out my epic disaster of a face. Using baby wipes to take make up off and generally slacking majorly in the skincare department for the last couple of years has made my skin suffer. It's dry and a bone and dull as the sky in November and my foundation just clung to the dry patches and looked crap but this has sorted the dryness around my nose and for that I am thankful.
ANATOMICALS DAY AND NIGHT SPOT STICK FULL SIZE
For the inevitable hormonal break outs. My skin isn't as bad as it used to be spot wise these days although this month my face appears to think it's 15 again. I've been putting this on any spots at night and the swelling has completely gone by the morning. Bloody fabulous this little stick of magic is! It contains Tea Tree and Witch Hazel which are known for their spot killing abilities and it's all round awesome.
DR STUART'S DETOX TEA
I have a soft spot for tiny separate bags of tea. I've not tried it yet because I hardly get a second to sit down let alone sit down and drink a hot cup of tea haha.
L'OREAL COLOR RICHE NAIL POLISH in OMG BLUES FULL SIZE
A nail polish is always a winner. I prefer more pastel colours in the summer but this will be nice for Autumn.
CANDY KITTENS SOUR WATERMELON FULL SIZE
These got stolen before I even had a chance. They're the sweet baby of Jamie Laing from Made in Chelsea. They used natural ingredients so no e numbers or ingredients you can't pronounce so you can totally eat the entire bag and call it healthy eating.
YLANG YLANG AND LAVENDER CANDLE
This was what I could smell before I opened the box! Bloody hell does this smell lovely, very spa like. I love a good candle so this was always going to be a winner in my books. Great for having a relaxing bubble bath with a nice cold glass of something.
LINDT MINI CHOCOLATE BUNNIES
These don't really need a review because chocolate is always a winner and because I'm awesome, I saved both of these for each kid. Mum points for me.
Want one? Awesome! Want 20% off? Even more awesome! The wonderful people at Ms Flow have given me a code just for you guys for 20% off your first box just enter the promo code: SPECIAL20 when you checkout!
I wish you all a very happy period with no cramps and a light flow (we can hope right?)
