There’s no information card with this subscription. However, in your first package, you’ll receive a parental guide. (You can subscribe for yourself as an adult if you like, of course, but this could be useful if you’re a parent of a preteen.) There was also a card with instructions on how to use a pad. Of course, I am an old hand at this by now (!) but again, this may be useful for someone who has just started menstruating. Finally, there was a personalized welcome card for the subscription.
Lip Balm, Rubber Bracelet, and Mini Nail File
These are just promotional items that will come with your first box. The lip balm and nail file are useful, of course, and the bracelet has a positive message that I probably would’ve appreciated around the time I got my first period (which was something like 28 years ago…).
6 Overnight Maxi Pads
These are longer pads with wings. My period was mostly over by the time this box came (not the box’s fault; it had more to do with the timing of getting a box set up and sent out for review) so I wasn’t able to fully test these, but they seem comparable to the Always overnight pads in terms of size and quality.
6 Regular Maxi Pads
These were good for lighter flow days and they still have one set of wings, which I definitely appreciate. I like that the packaging is subdued and doesn’t display the bright colors that blurt out “feminine hygiene product here” that some brands have.
These were good for super light flow days at the end of my period. They’re a little wider than the Always liners I typically use but still fit nicely. The gray strip down the middle of all these pads is activated charcoal, which can help absorb odors (these pads are not scented, which I appreciate).
Verdict: I didn’t calculate a value for Her Monthly Membership because you can’t buy these exact products separately. However, if you divide the price of this package by the number of pads, you get $0.39 per pad (not counting the lip balm and such), which seems reasonable considering that shipping is included.
Please note that if 18 pads or tampons isn’t enough for you (it’s sufficient for me, but some people have heavier flows), you can get additional boxes or choose a 36 pack, so you can really tailor this subscription to your needs. You can also change what you receive month to month, f you end up with too many of one kind of pad or tampon.
This does seem geared towards preteens and/or younger women based on the extras included, but it would certainly work for an adult and I also think I would’ve appreciated getting a package like this when I was 11 or 12 and just starting out.
