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. I haven’t received this subscription in a while and decided to give it another go since I had enjoyed it so much the first time around. Unfortunately it has been nothing but a problem since. I subscribed in March and while I appear to be getting boxes now I’m still missing a few months. I have been in constant contact with them and am trying to resolve all the issues and have not had much success. This is the first box I’ve received sine August and I have had no response to emails asking about the missing boxes.
The box was filled to the brim. I could see lots of snacks and goodies and the wrapped up reason for the box.
This is everything out of the box. It’s quite the assortment when you see it like this.
They do include an info card that gives an overview of the things you will find that aren’t pads and tampons.
The Gift-One Pulse Bracelet-$9.99
This bracelet is meant to be a reminder that we are one human race and show support for the Orlando shootings. I like both the message and the bracelet and thankfully, it can clasp up small enough for my tiny wrists.
The Pampering-Bonjour Jolie Pumpkin Spice Body Lotion-$12.00
This is scented with pumpkin and cinnamon. I like the spice overtones but the pumpkin is super sweet and not for me. That being said the lotion absorbed well and my hands are not greasy feeling.
There is an assortment of things to make you feel better at that time of the month. Werther’s Caramel Apple Sot Caramels($1), Hershey’s Chocolate Bar($1), ChipsAhoy Chocolate Chip Cookies($1), Lorna Doone Shortbread($1), Hershey’s Kisses in Pumpkin Spice and Chocolate($.75), SunBelt Bakery Granola Bars($1.50), and Bigelow Tea($1). It’s a mix of sweet and healthy and chocolate, which is what I want when I’m craving.
There is the usual wipes and Advil for the practical side of that time of the month.
Here is the actual items. You can select the assortment or get a full box of one type of product.
I am glad to actually get one of their boxes again and it was as good as the rest. I enjoy discovering the couple of things besides the feminine items. The value of items this month is around $29.00 but no one is buying this box for the value. 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.
