The PMS Package March 2018 Review

Goodbye Winter card Hello Spring Note from PMS Package

The PMS Package normally doesn’t come with an info card, but this month they included this one that celebrates Spring.

Box of 10 Tampax Regular Tampons Box of 10 Tampax Regular Tampons with tampons spilling out

Tampax Regular Absorbency Tampons, 10 ct – Retail Value $2.50

As always, you’ll receive a pack of tampons in each package. They tend to vary in brand, type, and absorbancy, but this time they’ve sent your basic Tampax cardboard applicator tamps in regular absorbency. This box certainly wouldn’t last me an entire cycle personally, but every woman is different, of course!

3 packets of 2 count advil

Advil Ibuprofen Tablets, 200mg, 2 ct packs x3 – Total Retail Value $0.66 (Buy a case of 50 for $10.99)

I’ve said before that Advil is my pain reliever of choice and often my savior. I received three little 2-tablet packs to throw in my purse or in my desk for those moments when my cramps, back pain, or a headache won’t let me live my life to the fullest.

Cala Products Cooling Cucumber Eye Pads directions for Cala Products Cooling Cucumber Eye Pads

CALA Products Cooling Cucumber Eye Pads – Estimated Value $1.48 (Buy a pack of 5 for $7.38)

I’ve received these eye pads in past boxes and they are a nice little spa treatment item. If you don’t have any cukes handy, just pop these in the fridge before using to chill your lids and help depuff.

Alavam Spa Dead Sea Black Mud Soap package Alavam Spa Dead Sea Black Mud Soap

Alavam Spa Dead Sea Black Mud Soap

This soap uses black mud from the shores of the Dead Sea to deliver just enough cleansing for especially problematic skin. I had to really get scrubbing with this for it to start lathering. I assumed there’d be a dark color to the lather, but it was just like any other non-muddy soap. No scent really here, just your basic soap scent. My hands did feel pretty soft afterward, but nothing here really wowed me.

Alavam Spa Dead Sea Active Mud Mask with box back of Alavam Spa Dead Sea Active Mud Mask

Alavam Spa Dead Sea Active Mud Mask, 3.52 oz.

While most mud masks tend to dry my face out, I was pleasantly surprised by how moisturized and soft my skin felt after using this one (maybe it’s the included lavender and avocado oils?). Like all mud masks, you smooth this over your skin in a thin layer and wait for it to dry before removing with warm water and/or a wet washcloth. Pro tip: remember to use a dark colored towel or one you don’t care as much for because it will get hecka dirty when removing the mud.

Day In Day Out Grape Shower Sponge close up of Day In Day Out Grape Shower Sponge

DayIn DayOut Shower Sponge

Hehehe- this shower puff immediately made me giggle with its grape-like appearance. Sadly, I had JUST bought a four pack of boring neutral toned puffs on Amazon, otherwise, this baby would be in my shower right now. What’s unique about it (besides its grape-y-ness) is that it has little foam chunks within the mess to soak up even more of your body wash. So cute!

Mirabella Lash Extend Fibers Mirabella Lash Extend Fibers with wand

Mirabella Lash Extend Fibers – Retail Value $11.00

I honestly wasn’t expecting very much from this product but it actually does work. This tube is basically full of tiny fibers that you spread on to your lashes like you do with mascara and they sort of attach themselves to make your lashes look fuller and longer. You then apply your usual mascara on top to create the illusion of a lush lash!

Ionix Shampoo with Argan Oil back of Ionix Shampoo with Argan Oil

ISO Beauty Ionix Shampoo with Argan Oil, 4.2 oz. – Retail Value $7.95

This shampoo is supposed to protect your hair from heat which is just what I need since I use a hair dryer every day. It also smells super duper nice and makes your hair shiny (something that mine never is) while slowly strengthening over time.

Now on to the snack portion of the box!

Cheryls Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies back of Cheryls Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies Cheryls Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies on plate

Cheryl’s Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies, 2.5 oz. 

These are crunchy little cooks that satisfy that craving you may have while on your period. Smaller than a cookie I would make, but larger than Famous Amos, these are nice n sweet.

Annie B's Sea Salt Caramel Popcorn back of Annie B's Sea Salt Caramel Popcorn Annie B's Sea Salt Caramel Popcorn on plate

Annie B’s Sea Salt Caramel Popcorn, 2.25 oz. – Retail Value $2.00

As far as flavored popcorn goes, caramel corn is pretty great! This bag isn’t huge but would surely last me a few sittings due to its sweetness. Salty and buttery, this has a really nice chewy caramel that hits your tongue all over.

Choco Rocks Chocolatey Chunks in green and gold Choco Rocks Chocolatey Chunks in green and gold on plate

Choco Rocks St. Patricks Day Mix Chocolatey Chunks, 3 oz. – Retail Value $2.59

I received these Choco Rocks in a previous PMS Package, but in “Princess” form which was loaded with pink. This time, they included green and gold metallic chunks for St. Patrick’s Day. As much as I have a slight aversion to eating metallic foods, these are addictive! I don’t know what it is, but the milk chocolate chunks dunked in metallic edible paint is really tasty! The tube is also deceiving tall and these seem to last forever.

Sheila G's Brownie Brittle in Chocolate Chip back of Sheila G's Brownie Brittle in Chocolate Chip Sheila G's Brownie Brittle in Chocolate Chip on plate

Sheila G’s Brownie Brittle in Chocolate Chip, 2.75 oz. – Retail Value $1.99

I can run, I can hide, but I cannot escape Sheila G’s Brownie Brittle. It follows me across so many subscription boxes and it knows I don’t care for it, but it persists! If I want a really chocolatey brownie, I want it to be soft and moist. Since these are a “brittle” they are crunchy and thin and just super messy, in my opinion. These will be passed on and I will see Sheila G again in the near future. I can feel it.

Verdict: Half snacks, half beauty. this month’s The PMS Package sent me 12 different items to keep me feeling fresh and my chocolate levels high. I always prefer when this box is heavy on the more spa-related items than the makeup items, so this was a pretty good one. The shampoo, shower puff, and (surprisingly) the lash extend fibers were probably my favorites, and the Advil will always be put to good use.

  1. I just don’t see the value here. I do not like the brownie brittle either. You would think we should love all things chocolate but not this stuff.

  2. I’ve never been a fan of brownie brittle either

    • I eat it, but I disagree with the entire philosophy behind it. The best part of the brownie is NOT the crunchy outside part. It is the gooey middle of the pan where things didn’t thoroughly cook.

      • YES, Ragan. YES.
