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. They have now extended my plan until May to make up for any missing boxes but I don’t have any expectations and just go with what I get.
The box showed up well packed and neatly wrapped inside. They do put forth an effort into making the items seem like presents and fun to open.
They give you a card that lists some of what you can find in your box. It also tells you that they are celebrating Earth Day.
The Gift-Hikari Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Majestic-$13.00
Hikari is a cruelty-free brand that is also PETA certified. Now the card says this is an everyday earth tone, but it’s a dark burgundy shade that doesn’t scream everyday to me. I like the colour but it’ll need a deft hand to not make it look really bad on me.
The Pampering-The Bomb Gals Bath Bomb in Tie Dye-$6.99
I can’t smell this through the wrapping but I love bath bombs! These ones are made with natural and vegan ingredients and are handmade.
There is a great mix of treats in here this month. We have some fruit leather, lollipops, jelly beans, Kashi bar, Craisins, popcorn, a PMS tea, and the cutest little tea strainer ever! There is not much in the way of chocolate this month but I think the rest of it will get me through.
Last up are the reasons for the box. You get a few wipes and some Advil plus your assortment of products that you picked. It makes it so easy to have things on hand this way.
This box is better than last months. They seem to be back on track with how they normally are. I enjoy discovering some of the things besides the feminine items. The value this month is around $37.00 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.
