The PMS Package February 2018 Review

Love yourself first and everything else falls into place print

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 Tampons in Super Playtex Gentle Glide 360 Tampons in shape of heart

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!Donut Mobile Phone Stent in package back of Donut Mobile Phone Stent package Donut Mobile Phone Stent propping iPhone up Donut Mobile Phone Stent in hand

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 Measurable Difference Tension Reducing Mist with cap off back of Measurable Difference Tension Reducing Mist

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 Dunn Wild Caviar Night Moisturizer back of Cougar by Paula Dunn Wild Caviar Night Moisturizer

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.

Chocolove Milk Chocolate Bar Chocolove Milk Chocolate Bar on plate

Chocolove Milk Chocolate Bar, 1.3 oz. – Retail Value $1.59 (found here for $1.29)

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 Nikki's Cookies Chocolate Valentine Heart on plate

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 Popcorn in Caramel Cheddar Kettle Gary Poppins Popcorn in Caramel Cheddar Kettle on plate

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 Dark Chocolate Fondue Made Chocolates Dark Chocolate Fondue chips on plate

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).

  1. Cougar scented lotion……to attract the cougar or to BE the cougar….that is the question.

  2. I think if you read up on chocolate and PMS, you might find there connections beyond the cultural stereotype. 🙂

  3. I subscribed for a couple month (BOGO offer), but for me this is not a great sub, though the idea is great. I am not the typical ‘menstruater’. I wish they included something to help with bloating and the general tired feeling. I think including a disposable heat pad in every box would be nice for those who need them. They are fairly cheap. I would like to see more comfort food besides chocolate, I rarely eat chocolate candy. Cookies, brownies, etc… I think iron rich foods because we do lose iron that time of the month. Maybe include iron supplements. I like the lavender items; like sprays and rollers. I use my roller every night regardless of the time of month. There is no way to make everyone happy, but both my boxes stuck to a basic theme; chocolate. I do appreciate the tampons even though I have a lifetime supply of them, it’s the thought.

    • FYI, one ounce of dark chocolate (70% or greater) contains 19% of your daily requirement of iron.

      • Yuk! Dark Chocolate. I would prefer supplements or another source. I don’t really eat chocolate.

      • I love dark chocolate. Candy plus supplements? Yes please! Iron pills are so gross and mess with your….ahem….movements.

        • Most people don’t need iron pills anyway. I had a hysterectomy last year, but before that, I’d been a vegetarian for 24 years and never paid particular attention to my iron intake and was never anemic. Best to only supplement that if your doctor says so.

          • I was severely anemic years ago, when I had such a heavy flow it was medically necessary to go on birth control, and I hated taking iron supplements. I hated it. I just take multivitamins now

          • I get my iron checked every year and it’s never been low, but since I am within menstruating age I take an iron supplement everyday. My bathroom habits did change, but other than that I have no adverse effects. I also donate plasma weekly so it’s important to keep my iron up. There was one time where they couldn’t give me all my blood back and I ended up getting really tired and a lady at my work gave me her prescription iron (super high dose) and I perked right back up actually it gave me more energy than normal. I was also told by a dr that a woman within menstruating age should consume more iron. Supplements are easier for me.
