Blogtober Day 9 - September Pink Parcel Review

I really enjoyed writing the review of August's Pink Parcel, so I thought I'd do the same thing again for September's box. I love Pink Parcel so much - they're still the only subscription box I get (apart from Graze). If you want to check out my review of August's box, the link is here.

I'll not go through the fact you get whatever pads or tampons you requested again, as that part is the same for every box (Always Infinity 4eva). Instead, I'll go straight on with the other stuff!

The first thing out of the box is a Skimono foot mask. I've never tried one of these before, but they look like little socks you put on your feet for half an hour and then presumably you take them off to lovely soft moisturised feet. I'm really looking forward to trying this, actually, as I have a bad habit of not really looking after my feet and they could really use some TLC.

Yay, nail polish! Ciaté is a brand that I'm familiar with, but I haven't used many of their things. I think I might have bought a chalkboard nails set in TKMaxx years ago, but that's about it. Out of the four shades available, I got boudoir, which is a bright red and that is right up my street, as I (for some reason) tend to like either bright reds or blues on my nails. I love this colour!

Please ignore the terrible shadow. I didn't realise it was there and I CBA editing the picture and uploading it again.

I was really intrigued when I saw this Stylondon face brush in the box this month. I've been looking at this style of brush for a while and wondering why they were so popular, but I never bothered picking one up as I rarely wear makeup anyway and my current ecotools set is serving me just fine. I did have a go with this at the weekend though when I was home without any of said ecotools brushes, and I do quite like it. It's a lot stiffer than I expected, but it picks up product really well and seems to apply and blend it alright, so I'm happy!

Next up is a Laritzy Cosmetics Lip Pencil in the colour Beau, which is quite a bright red, although darker than you would expect from the colour on the box. I don't really use lip pencils, but I suppose it'll be handy to have around. 

Also in the box was Sebamed Feminine Intimate Wash. I like that PinkParcel include things like this, so it's not all chocolate and beauty, there's some health-related stuff in there as well. Having said that, I haven't used this yet, so I have no idea if it's any good or not. The description says it's pH balanced and 100% soap free, so I'll give it a go sometime.

The tea I got this month was from the London Tea Company, which is a brand that Pink Parcel seem to send out quite a lot. I'm waiting for a quiet night in - or perhaps tomorrow night when I'm watching bake off! - to try this, but I love peaches and this sounds lovely and sweet so I'm really looking forward to finally sitting down with that cup of tea!

And last, but by no means least:

A chocolate brownie mug mix! I'm a calorie counter, so I'm waiting to try this until I have a day I can fit the calories for it in, but you have no idea how much I want to give this a go. I attempted to make cakes in a mug a year or two ago and it did not go well, but I'm hoping that this attempt will be better. (And if it's not, brownie batter is probably still going to be delicious).

All in all, this is another great box from Pink Parcel. I think I preferred last month's box a little more, but that was partially due to the Nails Inc polish, which is one of the best things I've received in a beauty box ever just because I already loved it, and the little meringue crowns, which were delicious and so low-calorie that I didn't have to worry about finding room for them in my diet. I don't know what I'd do without Pink Parcel, to be honest! (That is a lie. I would sadly be forced to buy my pads and chocolate from Superdrug and try not to cry at the cashier for no reason).
