The rise of the Subscription box must be one of my favourite things to come out of the last few years!
Whether it’s a box full of geeky memorabilia or a beauty box filled with makeup, it’s a bloody lovely treat to receive each month!
The newest, favourite box of mine is BLOB BOX!
Blob Box is a UK based monthly subscription box that offers period sufferers (because let’s face it, we DO suffer!) a selection of bits and piece which will help us through our monthly cycle.
A ‘Monthly Period Cycle Care Package’!
Not only do you receive period essentials such as tampons & sanitary towels, but you also receive products to help you through your time of the month and some treats because you damn well deserve it.
Blob Box specially selects their boxes of perfect monthly pick-me-up brands and deliver them straight to your door each month!
Every Month You’ll Get…
✔ FIVE TO TEN products tailored to your cycle along with your period products
✔ Products from local and small businesses
✔ That is ALWAYS worth over £50
✔ In 100% recyclable eco-boxes
✔ FREE UK delivery
✔ Blob Box Loyalty Scheme (Blob Rewards) – Members can earn reward points and claim up to £5 on their next order
As long as weve had periods, there has been a stigma surrounding them!
From a young age we are made to feel there is something almost to be ‘ashamed’ of with having periods. You may not have even noticed it happening!!
Ill give you some examples…
- Notice how in adverts for period products, its always a BLUE liquid…. never red.
- If a woman or girl gets assertive or upset or stands up for herself, its all too common to hear something along the lines of ‘oh she must be on her period’
- A image on instagram which shows period blood WILL BE REMOVED, but a photo of a small injury with blood in… wont be. (Also, female nipples = banned, male nipples = absolutely fine)
SO, BLOB BOX is BREAKING THE STIGMA!
Periods are a NATURAL, and very F’ing essential part of life… without our menstrual cycles, life COULD NOT CONTINUE.
On top of that, they are bloody horrible! The physical aches, cramps, pains, the sickness, headaches and the hormones!!! So Blob Box have come along to deliver a monthly delivery to aid you during your ‘monthly delivery’ from mother nature!
Blob Box reached out to me and kindly offered to send me their December box to check out and review, and I must say it exceeded all expectations!!
PERIOD HAVERS – REJOICE!
In the box there are sweet treats like hot choc and flapjack because, lets be honest, you deserve it. Bits to pamper yourself, like a luxurious face mask & bamboo face cleansing cloths, plus some gorge makeup items which I loved!! The lip liner was, TOP NOTCH. And of course there are a bunch of tampons and sanitary pads to keep you stocked up for your monthly flow in the sweetest little branded bag, in fact it was JUST the right amount.
The packaging was SUPER cute too, really funky box that it all came in that comically says ‘OPEN ME ON THE BLOB’.
Honestly I am over the moon that someone thought this up and its out there for everyone to get.
Blob Box has also gone to such a big effort to educate while providing value, in your box you get a leaflet explaining in more detail each stage of your cycle and which products in your box will be most useful for each stage. Its a curated box of goodies for you and your menstrual cycle. IF THERE IS ANYTHING, you should treat yourself to… it is this!
