Bonjour Jolie October 2019 “Trick or Treat” Review
This month’s Bonjour Jolie box theme is “Trick or Treat” and I love all of the cute candy corn pieces on the card and even on our tissue paper. Our information card lists some of our items and their retail values.
Let’s start with the goods. All of your menstrual products will come in a discreet bag that usually fits within our theme and in this case, it’s these cute ghosts and jack o’ lanterns!
When you sign up, you can choose up to 20 different menstrual products in any combination of tampons, pads, and liners. They offer a great selection of items from brands like Always, Kotex, and OB. You can check their selection out before you commit though, in case you are someone who has a preferred brand.
Seventh Generation Ultra-Thin Overnight Pads (20) – Buy 28 for $7.99
You can change your selections at any time by editing your profile, but keep in mind there might be a delay if you need to switch up your needs each month. The ability to switch it up is what I really like about this box and the fact that you can try new things without committing to an entire box of products. This may be TMI, but I’ve recently ventured into the ecofriendly world of menstrual cups and since I’m still a bit new, I figured I might need some backups. I’m happy they had a choice that was free from dyes, fragrances, and chlorine.
Summer’s Eve Cleansing Cloths in Blissful Escape (2) – Buy a box of 16 for $1.79
They send cleansing cloths like these each month which is nice because I have a great little stash for when I might need them to freshen up.
Advil To-Go Packs (2) – Buy 50 2-packs for $10.99
These little packets each have two pills, just enough to help with cramps or headaches while on the go.
Dirty Little Secret Lip Gloss in Vampy – Retail Value $14
This lip gloss is from a brand I am familiar with thanks to another subscription I review. I love the packaging of this gluten- and cruelty-free gloss and the color “Vampy” is such a perfect one for a Halloween box! It’s a little more purple on than it looks in the tube, but it goes on so smoothly and feels fairly moisturizing.
Here it is swatched. It has just a bit of shine to it.
Here it is on. I can get a darker color with a few swipes or really blend it in for a more subtle pop of color. (I feel the need to apologize for the crazed-eyes look. I got distracted and sort of forgot to look at the camera!)
The Bomb Gals Bath Bomb in After Midnight, 4.5 oz – Listed Value $8.00
This bath bomb looks wicked enough for Halloween with its black color tinged with a hint of blue-green. This is actually made with activated charcoal which will help detox your skin and even turn your bath water black! This bomb is cruelty-free and vegan made from plant-based ingredients. The scent is a blend of jasmine, rose petals, lily, and soft musk, and it’s a bit strong for me but I’m sure a bath will soften the scent though.
This little cauldron full of candy isn’t even listed on the card, but it’s a cute little item! It is filled with traditional candy corn, pumpkins, a chocolate ball, and even a few cinnamon candy corns which were a bit surprising to bite into!
Sensible Portions Veggie Chips, 0.5 oz – Estimated Value $0.50 (Buy a bag of 12 for $5.99)
These are already a favorite treat around here! These veggie ghosts and bats are crispy with just a hint of salt.
Our edibles all came packaged inside this orange bag.
Mars Chocolate Favorites Minis (8) – Estimated Value $0.48 (Buy a bag of 168 for $9.99)
To satisfy our chocolate cravings they included a handful of these mini chocolates. We received 5 Three Muskateers, 1 Milky Way, 1 Snickers, and 1 Twix. These bite-sized pieces are just enough to satisfy your sweet tooth with none of the guilt! Unless you eat them all at once which I’m likely to do.
Snickers Fun Size, (2) – Estimated Value $0.31 (Buy a 10.89 oz bag for $2.78)
These are always a good one to have stashed around the house. I’ll probably pop these in the freezer and eat them frozen when I need a little chocolate fix!
Chex Mix Muddy Buddies Chocolate and Peanut Butter Halloween Snack – Estimated Value $0.20 (Buy a bag of 25 for $4.98)
These are another favorite treat around here! They have just the right mix of peanut butter, chocolate, and crunchy Chex cereal.
Flipz Minis Milk Chocolate Covered Pretzels, 0. o5 – Estimated Value $0.20 (Buy a bag of 35 for $6.98)
I didn’t know they made tiny bags like this! I love chocolate covered pretzels so I might have to pick up some more of these minis to have on hand for when I want just a few since I absolutely cannot control myself with a larger bag of these lying around!
AirHeads Candy (2) – Estimated Value $0.27 (Buy a pack of 60 for $7.98)
If you’re like me, you might want something a little fruity to balance out all of that chocolate. I actually really love AirHeads so I was happy to see two of these regular sized strips!
Starburst Original Fun Size (2) – Estimated Value $0.14 (Buy a 10.58 oz for $2.28)
These are another classic treat that I’ll gladly take any time. Since I know you’re curious about what flavors were hidden inside, I went ahead and unwrapped them to reveal a decent haul. I don’t like the orange ones, those always go to my husband or kids, but strawberry is my favorite, so I’d call this a win!
Red Rose Sweet Temptations Teabags (3) – Estimated Value $0.67 (Buy an 18 ct box for $3.99)
Our teas this month are some fun caffeine-free flavors from Red Rose Tea’s Sweet Temptations collection. We received one blueberry muffin, a strawberry cheesecake, and a caramel apple pie. These are already sweetened with Stevia and I’m pretty sensitive to it and can only handle a very small amount.
I did try the caramel apple pie for review purposes and indeed it was much too sweet for me. It did have a nice sweet, warm caramel scent and flavor. It was just not for me!
Verdict: Every month I am delighted to see what Bonjour Jolie has in store. They do such fun themes and they curate the boxes so well to fit within that theme. I loved all of the delicious treats they included and I thought the Vampy lip gloss and black bath bomb were fun pampering touches. This is a very rough estimate, but I am estimating the total value to be about $32.14. While this isn’t too much over the $24.48/month ($16.50 + $0.99 tax + $6.99 shipping) box, I still think this is a fun way to get a few things you need each month along with a variety of treats that you might crave at that time!
To Wrap Up:
You can expect your first box to be shipped out within 7 Business Days or less.
We ship with a Shipping Partner which relays boxes to the USPS for US Shipments

Value Breakdown: This box costs $16.50 + $7.98 tax and shipping, which means that each of the 14 types of items in the box has an average cost of $1.75.
