Tampax Tampons in Regular Absorbancy, box of 10 – Retail Value $3.89
I’ll tell you right now, I am a menstrual cup kinda gal, so I abandoned tampons years ago. That being said, sometimes you are caught by surprise because you (read: me) always forget to put info into your period app, so these can still come in handy. Even though regular absorbancy is no match for my flow, it’s good to carry one of these around for an emergency or to help a fellow woman out in her time of need. They’ve sent this pack of 10 to cover you for at least a few days.
Motrin IB, 2 packets (with 2 capsules each) – Estimated Value $0.56 (Buy a box of 50 for $14.10)
Ibuprofen, my Queen, my bestie. I am a chronic headache person, so I always have ibuprofen on my person. I don’t get the worst cramps, but I definitely can feel like a tiny bit of hell when my period comes-a-knockin, so these little single serving packs of two are great to keep in my desk at work, or in my purse.
Pure Radiance by CALA Illuminating Facial Mask Sheet in Honey – Retail Value $1
When you aren’t exactly feeling like running a marathon (although exercise is proven to relieve menstrual cramps), sometimes you just want to treat yourself and have a lil home spa sesh. The first of two sheet masks that The PMS Package has included is one intended to illuminate with honey extract.
Pure Radiance by CALA Energizing Facial Mask Sheet in Pomegranate – Retail Value $1
The second sheet mask included will energize your skin with pomegranate extract. The mask itself is pretty straight-forward, smelling more like hand sanitizer than pomegranate, and dripping with essence. I popped this one for 15 minutes, hoping to energize my whole self after a heavy lunch, face included. After removing the mask, I rubbed in the inevitable extra essence, and after the initial stickiness kind of soaked in, my face felt pretty soft.
Opaline Bath Bomb in Rose – Retail Value $3?
I couldn’t find this lone bath bomb online (it seems like these are often a part of a gift basket), but I’m going to estimate a $3 value based on the size. This looks to be a rose-scented bath bomb that is ready to fizzle your sore body away. I’m a big fan of baths and when rose petals are involved, my interests are even more piqued. This is pretty heavily scented, so even though this bomb isn’t as big as your average Lush variety, it’s sure to get the job done.
Sheila G’s Brownie Brittle in Chocolate Chip, 1 oz. – Estimated Value $0.70 (Buy a variety pack of 20 for $13.99)
You really can’t escape Sheila G in subscription boxes. I myself am not a big fan of this Brownie Brittle (it’s just a bit TOO MUCH for me), but my roommate loves it and was stoked to see me bring this home. If you are a choc-o-holic, than this is a great little snack-size bag for you that ensures you don’t go too hard on the stuff.
Big Little Fudge in Choc A Lot, 1.6 oz. – Estimated Value $2.50 (Buy a box of 12 for $29.95)
I get why they call this “Big Little Fudge”. It’s small, yet kind of a huge piece of fudge. The flavor I received is called “Choc A Lot” as well, so I am preparing myself for a chocolate overload. One bite and I was like “Yeah, ok. This is SUPER chocolatey” as I slipped it back into its wrapper to take another nibble of at a later date.
Princess Choco Rocks Chocolatey Chunks, 3 oz. – Retail Value $3
Ok- I definitely made fun of these when I first saw them. I mean, c,mon. This is a period box that is already full of chocolate and pink stuff, and then you’re gonna give me something with the word “princess” on it? But then I ate these pale pink and purple metallic “rocks” and shut my mouth. These things look cool as heck and are addictively good. Would they appeal to me more if they were metallic black? Yes. But I will take these princess-form ones anyway. This tube has lasted me quite a while because just a small handful at a time is enough to indulge my craving.
Martinelli’s Organic Mulling Spices, 3 single serving packets – Estimated Value $1.65 (Buy a 20 pack for $10.99)
I thought that these were packets that only needed water added, but alas, you need some apple cider to enjoy these. Though I appreciate the fall vibes, I didn’t have any cider on hand to try these out. This box comes with three individual packets to spice up that cider though, which sounds super cozy, especially when your uterus is shedding it’s lining.
“Note To Self” Kiss Mark Notebook – Retail Value $5?
Journaling isn’t the first thing I think of when I get my period, but I suppose some women may use writing as an outlet, or if you’re tracking your period or ovulation, you can use this instead of an app on your smartphone. I am literally drowning in notebooks, and this one is a bit too “feminine” for me, so I will most likely be passing it on to someone. The cover is a sort of faux leather with different colored kiss marks all over it and it’s pretty thick, full of lines pages.
Diamond Pen – Retail Value $3.50?
Even though these can be found on AliExpress, I’m not exactly sure if it’s the same one or not, so I tried to meet in the middle between the cost of similar there and on Amazon. This pen is a fuchsia pink and gold metal-bodied pen with a large fake diamond on top. It retracts the pen tip by turning and actually writes quite smoothly for a ballpoint. It has a good weight to it, even though it’s not really my style. This is a good companion for the notebook with all the pink feels.
More pink! This time, it’s in the form of an interesting type of eyeshadow. I say interesting because this is a cream eyeshadow that dries to a powder. It has a really unique texture, and as I dabbed my brush into it, it reacted like a spongey, dense cream (which it is). Even though it’s a very pigmented and glittery pink, a little goes a long way. It glides easily onto my lid and was simple to blend out, and then build on. I’m not an avid eye shadow-wearer, nor a pink one at that, but this is something I’ve certainly never seen before.
Verdict: The PMS Package was a little heavy on the pink items for me, but did deliver some tasty treats and welcomed beauty items. I love receiving sheet masks and bath products, so those were a big win for me. The tampons and Motrin will no doubt come in handy for me, and those metallic rocks are darned good. After totaling the retail values (and guesstimates), this $34.99 box came to a $54.80 value. No doubt, that $29 eyeshadow held up a big chunk of that value.
