Bonjour Jolie Review February 2014 – Time of the Month Subscription Box

bonjour jolie review february 2014

I haven’t tried very many time of the month subscription boxes, so I was really excited when Bonjour Jolie provided me with this box to review. I admittedly did not know much about the kind of products they included, so the whole experience was going to be a surprise which I really liked.

The Cost: $16 a month, plus $5 shipping to the US (additional shipping internationally)

The Products: Each month Bonjour Jolie includes up to 25 feminine products, plus treats to eat and pamper yourself and the occasional gift. They also offer First Period Boxes for women who have just started to get their periods.

The Concept: Bonjour Jolie aims to make your time of the month as pleasant as possible by arming you with everything you need, plus fun extras to help you forget what time of the month it is.

 The Treats:

Russell Stover Marshmallow Heart – Retail Value $1

Yum, I actually never had one of these marshmallow hearts before, but I really loved this.

Double Decker Moon Pie – Retail Value $1

I ended up eating this right after taking the photo. It’s been years since I had a moon pie, so this was a very welcome trip down memory lane!

Tootsie Rolls – Retail Value $0.25

Hershey”s Kisses – Retail Value $0.25

Stash Teas in Chocolate Mint, Chocolate Hazelnut and Red Velvet – Retail Value $1.50

At first I was excited to try the chocolate teas. I was really disappointed by the chocolate hazelnut and could not finish the tea. It tasted like watered down chocolate which just was not pleasant for me. The chocolate mint was really nice though.

 The Pampering:

New Zealand Chocolate Truffle Bath Salts – Retail Value $3

There is nothing better than a chocolate-scented bath except for eating chocolate while you are taking a bath.

Chocolate Decadence Soy Candles – Retail Value $1

The chocolate scent is really nice in these candles, but the scent is very subtle once you light the candle.

Chocolate Lip Balm – Retail Value $4

I used to have a hot cocoa flavored lip balm before, so I was happy to get a replacement because I love chocolate lip balms!

Chocolate Minted Hand Soaps – Retail Value $1

The Necessities:

U by Kotex Pads, Liners and Tampons – Retail Value approx $10

I really like the variety Bonjour Jolie provides for women. They have a huge selection of brands and 25 different items is more than enough to get anyone through their time of the month.

Advil Sample Packs – Retail Value $0.50

Epielle Feminine Wipes – Retail Value $1

The Gift:

Silver Heart Locket Necklace – Retail Value $16

This silver heart is just so pretty. I absolutely love it.

 

Thoughts: I loved this box. I think Bonjour Jolie did a really great job in creating an experience for you and doing what they can to help get you through the week. The only way they could have made this box better would be to have your favorite celebrity crush hand deliver it to you (mine would be Jeffry Dean Morgan). I can’t think of any suggestions for improvement based off my experience, except to perhaps include more chocolate because you can never have enough.

Hello Flo Review September 2013 – Period Subscription Box

Hello Flo review

Subscription boxes for your period are becoming increasingly more popular, so I decided it was time that I reviewed another period subscription box company. Hello Flo was on the top of my list after their amazing viral video.

Hello Flo review

The Cost: Between $14 – $18 a month, depending on your flow

The Products: Hello Flo sends you a selection of tampons and pads tailored to your particular flow habits. You can also choose to receive pads only. Each box also has a couple of treats to help comfort you. I have PCOS and I do not usually need feminine hygiene products so I chose the Heavy Flow package to give to my sisters.

Hello Flo review

Unreal Candy Coated Chocolate – Value $1.75

Unreal Chocolate Caramel Nougat Bar – Value $0.50
I’ve seen these candies at the drugstore and always wanted to give them a try. I am so glad they were included in the box because they were so good. Definitely better than the “originals” filled with all those chemicals.
Hello Flo review

Always Regular and Night Pads
Always Pantyliners

Hello Flo review

Regular, Super and Ultra Tampons
Carry Tote

I loved the carrier the tampons and pads came in! It is so cute and I am sure will be a permanent tampon holder for my sisters.

Here is the Hello Flo video that went viral:

Thoughts: I thought this was a great care package for that time of the month! They really focus on what is important – keeping you protected – and less on the fluff and goodies. At that time of the month, this is what really matters.

My Cotton Bunny May 2013 Review – Women’s Subscription Box

I’ve seen a lot of time-of-the-month subscription boxes out there, but never tried any, so when My Cotton Bunny offered to send me a box to review I immediately said yes.

Cost: $13.75 a month, including shipping

Box: Enough tampons or pads to last you a month, plus a few extra goodies to help make your week just a little brighter.

They provided two cards. One reviewed the contents of the box, plus how to get an extra gift in your next box. The second was a message to the subscriber. I thought it was really cute how they made notes both for the woman and her significant other!

Tampax Pearl 18 count – $5.99

Kerfluffles Marshmalllows  $2.50
Honey Sticks $0.70 for 2

These are hands-down the best marshmallows I’ve ever tasted. Even my daughter ate two and she is not a marshmallow fan. They are light, fluffy and full of flavor. I used my coupon to order their Cherry Almond and Lemon Meringue marshmallows.

Hair Clips – $5 – I couldn’t find an actual value for these anywhere, so this is just an estimation

These were really cute – I just wish I got something a little brighter for Summer, but they will be great for a night out!

Verdict: Overall, I am pretty happy with My Cotton Bunny. The treats were incredible and I love the hair clips! I think this is the perfect subscription to have to not only save you a trip out, but to give yourself a nice treat each month.

What do you think of time of the month subscription boxes? Would you sign up for a monthly box like My Cotton Bunny?
