Bonjour Jolie is a time-of-the-month box that sends you your necessary items plus some other products to make you feel a little better during that special time. You give them some information about your period and then select the 25 items you need in any variation of pads, liners or tampons. They have a wide selection of brands, so no matter what you use they can cover you. They also include a gift, bath and body items, teas and drinks, candy and snacks, some wipes and if you want, some Advil. Boxes shipped to Canada are $24.50 a month but do decrease somewhat if you order in 3 or 6 month plans. You can also add on some extras like heating pads or more Advil for additional costs.
This months box was just as full as last time. Everything looked good on first inspection and I could see a few really interesting things.
For May the theme of the box is From Nepal, With Love. They are supporting the women of Nepal with some of the items and some just match the theme.
The required products are the same as last month. I was happy with what I received and didn’t feel the need to make any changes. Nothing special about them, just a part of life.
This months gift item is another piece of jewelry but I think it’s gorgeous! It is a Nepali Seed-bead Cuff Bracelet worth $14.00. These are handmade by women in Nepal and help to support women having their own business. It is from Globalgirlfriend.com. I’m really happy with this bracelet and think it looks great on me. The rows are banded together so they stay as a solid group. Did I mention I love this?
I like that all the parts come in their own little bags to investigate. It make it more fun then having everything all tossed in a box loose. The wipes and Advil are back again. If you don’t want it you can select to not receive the Advil at all. The other items are Himalayan Sole Bath-$3.00 and Organic Lilac Blossoms Lotion, $12.00 for 4oz. The bath salts are have 84 ionized minerals in them which act as a detox for your system. You just have to relax in the tub for 30 min and it will do the rest. I’m in love with this lotion! It smells like lilacs and they are my favorite flower. It has the added benefit of giving 50% of its sale proceeds to the relief effort in Nepal. The tub is pretty big so even with me savouring every use I’ll still have lots to use.
This months assortment is mostly asian sweets and treats. I have tried and liked most of them before so I’m okay with this. Included are Morinaga Hi-Chew Candy in Mango flavour, 4 Garden Lucky Candy, which I don’t like but are a strawberry hard candy, Imei Cream Wafers which are new to me but I got lemon flavoured so I think I’ll enjoy them, Hello Panda Cookies, chocolate flavour, which I buy every other shopping trip, 4 Milkita Milkshake hard candies, and 3 assorted flavours of Instant Snapple Iced Tea. I think it’s nice that they didn’t ship out more regular tea as not everyone likes to have hot tea all the time. The rest of the candies seem to be mostly sweet this time but are a mix of eat quickly and suck on varieties.
My second box from them was as good as the first. I enjoy discovering the couple of things besides the feminine items. The extras are worth $35.00, which means this month is over the amount I paid. No one is buying this box for the value though. With a coupon and a trip to the grocery store I can get more products for less but the little helpers are a way to not have to think about the reason for the box. It’s also one less thing to remember to buy if you have them delivered.
