Ugh, periods. Wouldn't our lives be easier if we didn't experience an arrival of an unwanted visitor every month?
Right now you are probably wondering what I'm on about. I know this post may seem strange given the type of my blog but please bear with me.
Periods have a huge impact on our lives, especially when they are at their height. They often cause extremely painful cramps and put us in a bad mood. I'm sure all of you know what I'm talking about.
I always dread the arrival of the time of the month. As it makes me really cranky and emotional, all I want is to stay in bed during this 7-day long affair.
So when I came across Period Box, I knew I had to give it a go. I don't know if you heard about the concept before but it's a premium monthly subscription service for periods.
Period Box provides you with tampons and pads as well as hand-picked goodies and treats to get you through those tough days in the nicest possible way. It can be completely customised to fit your needs so you are free to mix and match your products depending on your flow.
When I opened my box, I was really pleased to see that all products were beautifully wrapped in a custom design tissue paper. Inside I found 20 Always pads for day/night, which I opted for earlier on the website, 8 pantyliners and a selection of items to enjoy, indulge on and use to make my period more bearable.
Among the beauty goodies there were Au Lait Body Milk and Shower Gel from Scottish Fine Soaps, SASS Intimate Purifying Cleanser and an Intimate Perfect Skin Concentrate that helps to prevent ingrown hairs and soothes skin after shaving or waxing.
As period pain is something I know too well, I was happy to receive a Masterplast self adhesive heat pad which is ideal for stomach cramps and back pains. It is fragrance free and can be easily applied to clothing/underwear to bring relief for up to 8 hours.
Have you heard about Period Box before? What do you think about this idea?
