Le Parcel Subscription Box Review – July 2014
Le Parcel is a time-of-the-month subscription box that sends you your choice of pads and/or tampons, but a few treats and other items. It’s been a while since I reviewed this service, so I signed up to try it out again!
The Subscription Box: Le Parcel
The Cost: $15 a month
The Products: Your choice of 25 pads/tampons/panty liners, plus chocolates and few other fun items.
Ships to: US ($5 shipping) Canada ($7 shipping)
25 Pads/Liners/Tampons – Value $5?
When you’re signing up for a subscription, you get to select how many of each category item you want. They feature the brands: Tampax, Kotex, Playtex, OB, and Always.
Now on to the more fun items!
Kenz Laurenz Hair Ties – Value $3
Pura Vida Bracelet – Value $5
I can always use more hair ties, so these will come in handy, and I like this bracelet for layering – plus it supports fair-trade full time jobs for local artisans in Costa Rica!
Knot Chocolate Truffles – Value $4?
I can’t find these for sale anywhere online, so I’m guessing on the price. (Fortunately they were shipped with a cooler pack so they arrived unmelted!)
Intimina Feminine Wash – Sample
Mermaid Market Tote – Value $3?
This is the tiniest tote ever! (I think you could fit two water bottles in it). It’s cute and I’m sure I’ll use it for something
Verdict: I paid $20 for this box ($15 plus $5 shipping) and I received about $20 worth of items. I’m a little disappointed in the bonus items only because I re-signed up for this box based on their homepage imagery which shows high-end beauty samples. I’m going to give it one more month to see what my bonus gifts are for August – hopefully they match up a little more with what’s shown on the site. As far as the practicality of this subscription goes – their website is great. It’s very easy to order exactly what you want, and I think the packaging is great too.
