Bonjour Jolie TOM Box June 2015

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 month’s theme is Summer.  The card details what you got and where you can get more of them.

The inside of the box.  I like that everything comes in it’s own little bag.  It just means each part feels like another present for you.

Let’s get these out of the way first.  You pick what you want to receive, up to 25 items.  They have a bunch of choices so you should be able to find what you would normally use.

The Gift for this month is a Calla Lily Necklace from Ellies Button on Etsy.  This is worth $18.00 and is very pretty.  It is silver plated and has a Swarovski Pearl as the center.  I didn’t even know Swarovski did pearls.  It was chosen since the pearl is June’s birthstone.

The Pampering-$4.00

Beyond the Advil and cleansing wipes, the special pampering items this month are from Beekman 1802 Company.  On the info card there is a little note from the company telling you about them and that this collection is based on the clean simplicity of life in the country.  They sent out Fresh Air Shower Gel and Goat Milk Lotion.  Both are worth $2.00 each.  They really do smell fresh.  The only issue I have is that once again they seem like hotel products.  Also since there is just the two of them, it’s not all that pampering.

The Edibles-$6.00

These treats are so summery and also take me back to being a kid.  My info card says I should have received Boston Fruit Slices but I got the Famous Amos Chocolate Chip Cookies instead.  That ‘s okay with me.  I would have enjoyed either.  Also in my bag are BB Bats Taffy Lollipops, which I didn’t even know they made anymore since I haven’t seen them since I was a youth Trick or Treating, Jolly Rancher stick, Coconut Long Boys, Brach’s Ie Cream Nougats, and True Citrus Drink Packets.  I can’t wait to dig into these!

This was my last box from them and it was as good as the rest.  I would continue to get this one but the exchange rate is so horrible right no  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.
