*Disclaimer* I was very kindly gifted this period pamper box, but all opinions included are my own. You can read more reviews and opinions here.
As some of you may or may not be aware, since coming off the pill and using the fertility awareness method – I’ve become more in tune with my body and more passionate that people with periods should not feel embarrassed or shy away. If anything we should nurture and care for ourselves even more during these times!
Of course, when the lovely Hayley from Love Your Cycles contacted me as asked if she could send me one of her monthly period pamper boxes, I was so excited! I’ve never had any sort of pamper box, so I couldn’t wait for this to turn up.
The Period Pamper Box is a monthly subscription service, where each month you’ll receive a beautiful box full of different treats to support you during your period. It contains products made by small indie businesses, and each products is meant to bring comfort, relaxation and/or pampering to your time of the month.
When you buy a subscription, you also get access to an online portal that has different courses on offer, as well as meditation, workshops and live events. So not only do you get a monthly box, but you also get a whole host of extra support.
There is also the option to buy a one of pamper box, which would be a perfect gift for a friend. Or even better, a gift for a young person who has just started their period. Just so that they can feel a bit of comfort at a time that is understandably a bit confusing and daunting.
My box arrived 3 days after it had been posted out, and as I wasn’t expecting it to arrive so quick it was a nice surprise on a Friday! I will admit, I waited for Grayson to nap so that I could have full privilege to open it and take my time enjoying it.
And oh boy did I.
I’ve got to start by saying, even the packaging alone is so pretty! Wrapped in tissue paper, with shredded tissue and dried flowers you can just tell from the moment you open it that there is so much thought poured into every detail of the box.
When I opened up the tissue paper and saw the contents, I genuinely gasped because 1. There was way more products that I was expecting and 2. similarly to the point I made earlier, you can just see how much care was put into the products.
Here were just some of the products included in this months box:
- A self care book
- Heat packs
- Heated eye mask
- Bio bites
- A radiance moisturiser and bath melts from Luna Rose Botanicals (another company that Hayley owns, I’m starting to wonder if there’s anything this woman can’t do!).
I’ve used a few of the products already, such as the bath melts and the heated eye mask. I have also started to read through the self care book! But I’m saving some of the products for later in the month when I’m due on my period.
Hayley initially started Period Pamper Box because she noticed that there wasn’t a monthly subscription box that pampered those people on their period. She also noticed that a large amount of period supporting products include a lot of sugar and other chemicals that our bodies don’t need – especially during a period. Which is why most of her products are completely natural.
I can definitely see the benefit of receiving a monthly box that helps pamper and support you during your period, a time in the month where you need a bit of extra pampering and self care. Hayley has completely hit the nail on the head with this product, and just from speaking to her, I can tell how much she loves what she does and the passion and attention she puts in to ever single box.
Thanks again to Hayley, for sending me this absolutely beautiful box!
