The PMS Package August 2018 Review
Playtex Gentle Glide 360 Tampons in Super – Retail Value $4.16 ($2.08 each)
Ah-ha – a period box with tampons, off to a good start! Each box contains eight tampons, which would probably last a full cycle for me. The applicators are plastic, which I always prefer over cardboard, and have “360 degrees of triple layer protection.” I’ve used these tampons before and really like them, but let’s address the elephant in the room: these tampons are scented (cue the room full of gasps!). I try to steer clear of any feminine hygiene products with perfumes to prevent any avoidable irritation. Other than the scent issue, these would have been the perfect addition to this box.
Cala Make-Up Remover Cleansing Tissues - Green Tea – Retail Value $7.59
These wipes have a gentle green tea scent and are much softer than the makeup wipes that I typically use and did a great job taking off my makeup. I really liked them – I also liked that this box includes the full 30 pack! These are perfect for travel, I keep them handy to freshen up after a flight, take my face off at the end of the workday, and keep my white sheets clean and makeup free. Period or not – these are a winner in my book.
Pringles Original Grab n' Go Chips – Buy a pack of 12 for $7.99
Who doesn’t like original Pringles? I think most of you reading have probably sampled one of these chips in your lifetime – so I’ll just say this, they are delicious, and I like getting a single serving can! It’s a great snack for a long card ride – and fits in your cup holder!
Beanitos White Bean Chips - Nacho Cheese - 1.2 oz – Buy a 6 oz. bag for $6.87
These taste like the healthier version of nacho cheese Doritos. Made with beans instead of corn, you get the familiar flavor but extra fiber and protein – sure to make you feel better during your special time. I didn't know about these chips but am eager to now try different varieties.
Charleston Chew - Chocolate – Retail Value $2.00 (Buy 12 bars for $23.99)
Believe it or not, I’ve never had a Charleston Chew – but I was pretty pleased with my first bite! You might know this, but it’s a classic candy bar that’s been around since 1922 and is similar to a 3 Musketeers bar – it's chewy flavored nougat wrapped in a rich chocolate coating. Yum! There's a reason why it stood the test of time!
Cinnamon Bun Bites Candy Theater Size Pack – Retail Value $2.42 (Buy 12 packs for $28.99)
So, these aren’t something I’d probably binge snack on but I think they do have a place in this world. I see them as being a perfect addition to a bowl of ice cream! They're soft, yogurt textured bites that have a nice balance of vanilla and cinnamon.
Goo Goo Clusters Supreme – Retail Value $2.16 (Buy 12 packs for $25.92)
So, clearly this got melted in transit – but that didn’t impact the flavor one bit! It’s a layered treat containing milk chocolate, caramel, pecans, and marshmallow nougat. It is not good for you – but it certainly made me feel better while I was eating it!
The Verdict: The PMS Package August box was a great indulgent snack box, but I did feel that it was a bit heavy on the calories (who needs that guilt when you’re on your period!) and light on the self-care items. From my calculations, I received $20.17 in products and paid $34.99 for this box. I think this is a big letdown – especially since I don’t care for scented tampons and now that my sugar is crashing I’m even crankier than I was before. I wonder if my box is missing a big ticket item or if the value just isn’t there?
