The PMS Package August 2018 Review

This is my first experience with a period subscription box, but I can certainly use a little extra pick me up around this time, so onto the items in this month’s The PMS Package!

4 - PMS playtex 5 - PMS playtex

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.

6 - PMS makeup remover 7 - PMS 8 - PMS

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.

9 - PMS pringles 10 - PMS pringles 11 - PMS pringles

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!

12 - PMS beanitos 13 - PMS beanitos 14 - PMS beanitos

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.

15 - PMS charleston chew 16 - PMS charleston chew 17 - PMS charleston chew

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!

18 - PMS cinnamon bun 19 - PMS 20 - PMS

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.

21 - PMS goo goo 22 - PMS 23 - PMS

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?

  1. I know I will probably be stoned but I use scented plastic applicator tampons.

    I do agree with everyone else that the value is really not there with this box.

  2. Whoa. I find scented tampons offensive. Scented period products imply that there’s something wrong with the way a woman naturally smells. Not cool. Girls grow up feeling bad enough about themselves; they don’t need fuel on that fire.

  3. It says Tampoons under the verdict.

  4. They need to add more bath and beauty products to increase its value.

  5. I calculated $7 maybe $10 at the most. Wow terrible box.

    • This is the PMS Box that was created by teenage boys so when I look at it that way it makes sense. This is what my sons would buy probably. I think it’s totally overpriced You can order tampons from amazon.

      Btw you have it in the verdict as tampoons!

  6. They probably include the scented tampons because nobody buys them so companies can’t even give them away.

  7. Wow that value is terrible! This is insane. You’d think making a box of fun snacks and tampons would be cheap to prepare!

  8. Wow I would email them and ask why the value wasn’t there. That would make me mad as heck

  9. This box has such potential, but has so many misses. If there aren’t going to be variations then every box should include; Tampons, pads, sweet items, and salty items. There should also be items for pain and stress, like; midol type items, heat pads, essential oil rollers, sleeping mask, lotions for pains, essential oils for pain, Advil type items, acne creams/oils/lotions, and supplements like iron for blood loss. Not every item will please everyone but covers the gambit of your hormonal misery.

  10. I think it’s about time they stop making scented tampons altogether. Does anyone use them? What’s the point? Does anyone actually believe a scented piece of fiber inserted into your vagina is actually good for you or going to keep you feeling fresh while you menstrate?

    • I completely agree and the plastic applicators for that matter. So bad for the environment and are completely useless considering cardboard does the job just fine…I’ve actually been pinched in terrible places by the plastic ones…

  11. This is THEFT
