Every month or so, all of us ladies get nature’s scream of “You’re not pregnant!” and it doesn’t always go the way we planned. Sometimes it catches us off guard, finding its way to our white skirts and fresh bedsheets. Sometimes, we find ourselves crying over a penguin documentary because of it. Sometimes it adds pain to an already stressful week. And sometimes, if you’re lucky, it’s not a big deal and you’re able to shrug it off. No matter how your periods go, Ellebox is a company that has a goal of making your period as pleasant, luxurious, and convenient as you deserve.
Ellebox works on a subscription-based model and sends you a completely customizable box of goodies every cycle (or on the first of every month if you’re irregular). It allows you to choose the number of pads and tampons you need, and every box comes with tea and chocolate, and the choice to add self-care gifts and/or organic products.
Here’s a breakdown of what I got in my box:
- Capilano Tea (Lavender, chamomile, and rosehips for maximum relaxation!)
- Lavender Lemongrass NEU Skin Botanicals Body Butter
- Dark Ghirardelli Chocolate
- Element Botanicals “Serenity Now” Aromatherapy Mist (currently my new obsession)
I loved my experience with Ellebox, especially since receiving snail mail alone is already something that makes me giddy. When I first opened up the package, it smelled AMAZING and actually made me excited for what is usually the worst week of the month for me. It saved me the panicked trip to the drug store, and instead, gave me a mini spa kit full of local love right at my door. Personally, adding all the extra gifts would make the price too steep for me to pay on a monthly basis, so I would stick with the bare necessities and let myself splurge on occasion.
Although Ellebox sponsored this post, all opinions on are my own. Thanks so much Ellebox!
