Rose War Panty Power May 2019 Review
Every Rose War Panty Power box includes a card that lists the random lifestyle gifts a subscriber may receive.
Organyc Cotton Tampons (7ct)
Just a note for our readers—I’m more of a pad girl so I’m a bit biased (*´∀`*) But because summer swim season is starting, these tampons will be put to good use! Organyc tampons are hypoallergenic, made with 100% pure, organic, and unbleached cotton.
Many tampons use a plastic tube covering, but these use flushable cardboard. The tip is round and smooth for a comfortable insert, and the packaging is all safe for the environment!
I appreciated the inclusion of the small booklet that showed diagrams and detailed instructions for first-time tampon users on insertion, as well as helpful warnings to change tampons regularly to prevent infections. I received 4 regular and 3 heavy sized tampons.
Yejimiin Sanitary Pads (2ct) + Organic Born Sanitary Pads (6ct)
Yejimiin pure organic cotton pads use a mix of 5 herbs, ganghwa mugwort, motherwort, sophora, angelica, and mint, to mask the unpleasant odor of menstrual blood without the use of artificial and chemical fragrances. These pads are a little stiff, but I noticed the absorption was very strong and appeared clean due to the very porous texture of the cotton. I liked the leakage protection lines that surrounded the entire pad as well. I received 2 Ultra Slim pads.
Organic Born pads are made with organic cotton and feature thick prevention lines to stop menstrual blood from leaking sideways, embossing to prevent loosening of pad threads and an extra cushion layer in the middle. I found these pads very soft, un-diaperlike, and I appreciated the middle cushion—they felt and absorbed better, making them suitable for the first days of my period.
The inclusion of pantiliners was nice, as I typically use a tampon and a pantiliner together (just to be safe). These were light, soft, and felt like air! I received 2 pantiliners. The large pads, even with the longer length, did not stick to my skin even while sweating in the hot weather or sitting down for long periods of time. I appreciated the thick wings that prevented any blood on my underwear. I received 2 small and 2 medium pads.
So… why does it matter what material our tampons and pads are made of? Organic and unbleached cotton feminine products are free of synthetic elements and fragrances carry a much lower risk of toxic shock syndrome or TSS. The organic material doesn’t have potentially harmful ingredients that increase risk of bacteria and other infections—big thank you to Rose War Panty Power for providing such products!
Goodwipes in Shea-Coco and Rosewater (2ct)
These wet wipes are good for down there anywhere, both during that time of the month and just for a nice freshen up. These are biodegradable, hypoallergenic, and flushable wipes free of parabens and made with natural tea tree, peppermint, and ginseng oils for a cooling effect. The two wipes did not have any strong scents, just a slight touch of fresh soap smell for Shea-Coco and a very faint rose smell. These aren’t oversaturated with product and make me feel so clean!
Essance Dragon’s Blood Mist Toner – Retail Value $14.00, Listed Value $15.00
Surprise gift time! This toner is formulated with organic aloe juice (first ingredient!) and a mix of organic essential oils, including orange blossom, peppermint, witch hazel, lavender, mushroom extract, frankincense, and other extracts. I couldn’t test out the product sadly because I react badly to essential oils in my skincare, but I passed this on to a friend. The toner works wonders for breakouts on her—I think the tea tree, aloe, and peppermint extracts help fight bacteria growth and production of oil sebum.
Unicorn Whipped Body Butter – Listed Value $12.00
This whipped body butter is so beautiful. The pastel rainbow colors match with the heavenly cotton candy, raspberry, and vanilla cupcakes that are not an overpowering sweet smell, and just brings a nice smile to your face when you use it. The butter is a blend of organic shea butter, coconut and jojoba oils, and organic fragrances. I’ll use it sparingly on my hands only (I’m trying my best to not ruin the spirals!)

Dr. Yang Wellness Crampless Mini Tea Set – Listed Value $12.00
Based on oriental medicines, Dr. Yang’s Crampless Tea is a simple blend of ginger, jujube, black sugar, and goji berry. Dr. Yang recommends drinking the tea about a few days before your period is scheduled, and 1-2 cups at the first signs of cramps. While I usually do not cramp during my periods, I experienced some stress cramps I used as a chance to test the product.
It works, incredibly well, and I’m not surprised. In fact, my mom always brewed ginseng, jujube, and pear whenever I had a cold or fever, which reduced my temperature and soothed the throat. Ginger’s powerful anti-inflammatory effects work as a natural ibuprofen effect to reduce pain, as well as health benefits, such as heart health and aging. Dried jujube pieces are cut in the tea as a rich source of iron and phosphorous to help blood circulation and increase blood flow, which helps with irregular period cycles. The black cubes are black sugar, which has a smooth molasses taste, filled with essential minerals to relax uterine muscles and ease contractions or cramps. The small dried red pieces are goji berries, an antioxidant-filled berry that contains beta-sitosterol, which helps relieve muscle pain.
If you suffer from period cramps often, I suggest making your own mix of period pain tea. You can use green tea instead of goji berries for the same antioxidant levels, but jujubes and ginger are a must, boosting general health and easing pain. Make sure to eat all the herbs as well!
Hard Candy (2pcs)
I received 2 pieces of hard candy, a fizzy cola and sweet coffee flavored! I like individual pieces of candy because I can pop them anywhere in my pencil bag, backpack small pockets, or handbag. They’re a nice surprise especially during that time 😉
This Italian snack uses a flaky, buttery pastry and is topped with a crunchy, chewy aerated browned sugar coat. I like the subtle sweetness and savory texture of the snack, a perfect afternoon cheer up!
I like the extra packaging efforts Rose War Panty Power makes—the panties came safe and protected in a little pink bag~
Youmita Purple Panties
Though these panties were a little matronly than my usual wear, the stretch, softness, and lovely color made them a nice choice for a period day. The middle area is double layered, and the black buttons are a cute touch! The elastic band and the cloth are both very stretchy and would not make any marks if you stayed bent over for a long time.
Floral Lace Thong
Oh my! I have to admit, I was a little taken aback when I saw these quite… risqué panties! While I don’t think these are quite my style and I was afraid to try it on, I did think the floral lace was very pretty for spring. The band is very stretchy, maybe a little itchy for some, and is a beautiful light dusty rose color. I’m not sure how comfortable they will be, because lace can be itchy for those with sensitive skin.
Note: Because I use tampons solely for athletic/water-related activities, I used additional pads I already had in possession (Whole Foods + Always mix) and saved the tampons for later swim days.
Verdict: This was my first Rose War Panty Power box, and I love it! The assortment of beauty products, relief to pain both with healing tea and an enjoyable sweet, attention to detail by using organic cotton products and wet wipes so we’re safe and clean down there, and the pretty panties is a beautiful curation I enjoyed receiving ♡ Receiving these products monthly is such a convenience, with the added happiness of exploring what surprise items I received! I’m almost looking forward to that time of the month ｡(*^▽^*)ゞ

Calculating the retail value of the three additional items was $38.00; the total curation exceeds the original cost by a lot! I consider a large part of the subscription’s value the curation, design, and more pleasant experience given during some of our hardest times, but this is just my personal opinion!
