Bonjour Jolie TOM Box December 2016

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.

As you can see, this month has a few festive touches.  There was no info card in there, it seems to be hit and miss lately.  I was surprised to see the box of products though.

There is this nice ear band in there this month.  It is perfectly sized for my head and will be useful as I have to walk a few blocks from my parking spot to my job.  I think this might be the third one I’ve received this season but that is due to me getting many boxes.

There are two branded items in the pampering bag this month.  Peppermint Cocoa Butter Soap, which smells great, and Peppermint Lip Balm.  I think of peppermint as a very seasonal scent so these items make sense to me.  I will use them both and they are a good inclusion.

There was an assortment of hot beverage mixes.  There are mint and caramel hot chocolate mix and three tea bags.  I have tea every day so I can always use more.  The chocolate mixes will go to work and stop me from spending $5.00 to buy one.

In the comforting snack craving department, we have a good selection.  I have never seen the Hershey’s ones before, and I can’t wait to dig into those.  The chocolate squares are a new flavour to me but I know I like that brand.  The cookies are half good for me, I don’t do shortbread. Ever.  It’ll go to my hubby, who may not want it since I think he received about 5lbs of it for Christmas.

20170105_144705This is the odd thing for me.  I have my plan set to give me a mix of pads, liners and tampons, not to send me a box of something.  I can, and will, use these but it doesn’t show them listening to what is set up on their end.

This box seems a bit thrown together but overall it is good.  I enjoy discovering some of the things besides the feminine items.  I couldn’t do a value this month 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.

  1. Sorry to hear they are giving you trouble! I’ve always liked the idea of these Time of the Month boxes!! I would certainly welcome receiving all these things, lol. It’s sad that so many sub box companies these days are not providing the best customer service!
