This month’s welcome card calls attention to a few exciting things. First off, my box has apparently been upgraded to include 14 “time of the month” products instead of 12—funny thing is, I received 14 last month, too! Not sure what happened there, but I’m grateful for the extra 2 products anyway. It also showcases the special gift of the month, which is a facial cleanser. I’m on the market for a new face wash since my current one deeply exfoliates and is only meant to be used 1-2 times a week, so I’m eager to see what this one is all about.
The facial cleanser arrived in this plastic bag, I’m assuming as a precaution in case it was to open or leak. The bottle seems high-quality and unlikely to leak, but I definitely appreciate the safety measure anyway.
Gaffer & Child Facial Cleanser, 2 oz — Value $26.00
This product is 100% raw, organic, vegan, non-GMO, fair trade, and cruelty-free. That checks all the boxes! The cleanser is really thin, almost oily, and shot straight out onto my shirt with the first pump. I tried to pump more cautiously after that and maybe I went too far in the opposite extreme because then it just seeped out. All this to say: be aware that it might take a few tries to get the pump down! Once in my hands, this face wash didn’t suds up too much, which natural products often don’t. It has a lovely lavender scent that lingered on my skin. My face feels fresh and clean—I look forward to using this product daily.
The Facial Bar Adult Acne Cleansing Gel, 5ml — Value $2 (provided by Rose War)
While we’re on the topic of facial products, also included is this sampler of adult acne cleansing gel. The Facial Bar’s website is temporarily down, so I was unable to research the ingredients of this little guy, but the sticker does say it’s vegan, so I have a feeling it’s all natural. I don’t struggle with acne and I don’t like to apply any unnecessary products to my face, so I decided not to try this cleanser, but I squeezed some out between my fingers and found that it has the gel-like consistency that it claims. It, too, smells like lavender.
I remember really enjoying last month’s face mask, so I was more than ready to dive into a quiet few minutes with this green tea latte mask rejuvenating my skin. The scent is very fresh and spa-like, almost cucumber-y. The packaging relays that green tea’s antioxidants keep skin youthful, while milk proteins and lactic acid work to smooth out complexion. No woman will say no to those pitches!
After relaxing with this face mask on for awhile, I decided I like it even better than last month’s. It left my skin feeling a little less sticky and more nourished. Highly recommend!
Natracare Organic 100% Cotton Tampons with Applicator — Value 2.41 (Buy a 16-pack of regular size for $6.42)
Six tampons in two different sizes were included in my box: two regular and four super. I typically wear both sizes throughout my period (super on the first few days and regular on the last day or two), so while six isn’t enough to get me through my entire period, these will certainly be useful for me. These Natracare tampons have cardboard applicators and braided strings. They’re pretty straightforward as far as application and wear are concerned.
Assorted Yejimiin Organic Cotton Pads — Value 5? (Buy a 16-pack of 25cm pads on Amazon for $12.86)
Next, a variety of pads. They don’t have their sizes written on them, but, it seems I received 2 large pads, 4 medium ones, and two thin panty liners. I received a similar mix last month and only ended up using the pantyliner (I got 1 last month), so I think I’ll update my subscription to the tampons-only box going forward. In the past, I’ve used larger pads when yeast infections have aligned with my period and when healing from a minor procedure, but I don’t use them very regularly. It’ll be nice to have this little supply of natural, organic ones for when I do need them in the future, though.
Both of this month’s panties came packaged together in this plastic baggie.
Adrienne Vittadini Studio Underwear — Value $24 (provided by Rose War)
This underwear is sultry! I love its deep teal color and its seamless edges. As you can see, the back has wide margins of sheer lace trim, giving it a thong-like look even though it’s actually a bikini cut. This pair is made of a polyester-spandex blend, so it’s stretchy and smooth.
Youmita Lace-Trimmed Thong — Value $6.00 (provided by Rose War)
This month’s thong is seemingly simple from the front, but the back features a petite keyhole topped with a satiny bow and a silver heart charm. I’m not much of a charm-on-my-underwear type of lady, so I’ll probably snip it off. Otherwise, it’s a great basic black thong! It’s made from a nylon-spandex blend, so it, too, is stretchy and smooth.

KIND Healthy Grains® Dark Chocolate Chunk Bar — Value $0.73? (buy a box of 15 for $10.99)
I love, love, love KIND bars and always have some stocked in my pantry, so yay for this! I’ve never tried a bar from the Healthy Grains® line and I’m amped about how big it is (like double the size of a normal KIND bar, if not more). It’s soft with a crunch, just like advertised, and it has 8g of sugar, so it’s sweet without being too overly indulgent.
Verdict: I’m really pleased with October’s Rose War Panty Power box. In addition to it always being great to stock up on organic menstrual products, this month’s panties area treat and the additional products are thoughtful and of high quality. Value wise, the contents add up to well over the $25.20 cost of the box (right around $69), though even if they didn’t, I’d still feel I got a great deal with this box.
