The PMS Package February 2018 Review
Lucille Ball Quote Print
This month kicks things off with a positive quote from Lucille Ball saying “Love yourself first and everything else falls into place”. I like that this reminds us all that self-loathing is no way to go through life and when you love yourself, you allow much more positivity for good things in as well.
Playtex Gentle Glide 360 Super Tampons in Fresh Scent, 8 ct – Retail Value $2.13
I’m a menstrual cup kinda gal (TMI?), but I do like to have tampons on hand in my purse for when I get that surprise visit, or at home for my gal pals if they need one. The PMS Package always sends a box of tamps with each delivery to keep you covered. This time they’ve opted for Playtex Gentle Glide 360 in Super absorbancy (essential) and fresh scent. While I normally shy away from anything scented going inside my body, I’ll keep these as backups.
Pink Fuzzy Chevron Socks
My Mom always gets me socks like these, without fail, every Christmas. While I tend to run hot, my house can get cold in the winter and it’s always nice to have warm fuzzy socks like these to slip on to watch tv in or to warm up my feet under the covers in bed. While pink is not my go-to color, the softness of these socks makes up for it. The chevron pattern is also pretty cute. These keep my tootsies toasty for sure!
Donuts Mobile Phone Stent – Estimated Value $5.00
I’ve seen lots of people using these lately and have gotten at least one in a subscription box before, but this time I actually started using it. I have to say, this little thing has been one of my favorite items this month since I use my phone a lot. When I’m lazing about on my couch, engaged in texts and Instagram stalking, I tend to use my pinky to prop my phone on which causes some fatigue (major first world problem here). This little stand easily slips in between my fingers to relieve that fatigue and has been a huge help! It also can prop my phone up on a flat surface as a stand if I want to watch a video hands-free. Plus: donuts! I estimated a value here based on similar items online. The range is so great, I tried to stay in the middle somewhere.
Measurable Difference Tension Reducing Mist – Retail Value $8.00
This bottle of tension-reducing mist is essentially just a simple mixture of water and lavender oil. Lavender is known for its calming effects, so it makes sense that it’d be the main ingredient in a mist made to chill you out. The nozzle produces a nice fine mist so that you can spray it on your person, or even on your bedsheets without getting either soaked.
Cougar by Paula Dunne Wild Caviar Night Moisturizer, 1.75 oz. – Retail Value $32.19 USD
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t too impressed with this night moisturizer. First, the scent is a little on the strong side for me and smelled like when a perfume company makes a lotion. It didn’t seem to be all that moisturizing for my face and I ended up having to use my normal moisturizer on my face to make sure my skin stayed properly hydrated. Ah well.
One side of me wants to be mad at the stereotypical “women just want to pig out on chocolate when on their periods”, but then the other side says “but I love chocolate all the time, so who cares?”. Overall, this box is meant to comfort you when you tend to feel crampy and bloated and whatever else us ladies are feeling when the time comes, so I am certainly ok with turning to chocolate to help. I see Chocolove a lot in stores, but I can’t recall if I’ve ever purchased it. Made in Boulder, CO, this milk chocolate bar is ultra creamy with a generally low percentage (33%) of cocoa, so it’s really sweet and milky.
Nikki’s Cookies Chocolate Valentine Heart, 1.13 oz. – Retail Value $1.99
Another sweet treat came just in time for Valentine’s Day earlier this month. Coming from Nikki’s Cookies, it’s no real surprise that this chocolate heart has a cookie center. Super decadent, this single chunky heart knocks out that hankering for something sugary (and then some).
Gary Poppins Caramel Cheddar Kettle Popcorn, 1.4 oz. – Buy a 10 pack for $19.99
I normally don’t go for kettle corn, but when mixed with cheddar and caramel flavors, I will overlook it. This bag mixes all three flavors together and I’m surprised that I like it so much. I have to admit that the savory cheeseiness is my favorite part, but the caramel corn and kettle corn compliment it pretty well!
Chocolat Classique Cocoa Truffles, 4 ct – Buy a case of 144 for $24.48
Truffles have always been a little TOO chocolatey for my tastes, but my Mom just loves them. Here, there are four individually wrapped truffles dusted in cocoa powder and delivered in a little mesh pouch so I can easily share them.
MADE Chocolates Fondue for 2 in Dark Chocolate, 2 oz.
I couldn’t find this exact product for sale online anywhere but this is a pack of dark chocolate discs that you can melt on your stove or in a microwave and use for fondue. I don’t own a legit fondue pot but can use anything to melt these babies and dip anything from strawberries to poundcake in. Or, I can just eat them as is. 😉
Verdict: This month’s The PMS Package sent me 11 items to soothe my period rage and keep me feeling comforted and cozy. I was actually happy to not see makeup included this time and thought the tension-reducing mist is a much more suitable product. The snack portion is always nice and they went all out for Valentine’s Day with their chocolate selection. The phone stand was the dark horse product for me since I didn’t think I’d end up loving it so much. With the fuzzy socks and positive print, this box rounded out rather nicely. I am a little torn on the value, however, seeing as though most of the products are under the $3.00 range and only a few products were over that (the moisturizer being the most expensive which I didn’t really like).
