Bonjour Jolie is a time of the month subscription that provides your preferred “necessities”, along with various treats, teas, pampering items, and even a special gift.
Every month you’ll receive up to 25 pads or tampons (or a mix of both), as well as feminine wipes and Advil, if requested. You’ll be able to choose any combination of pads/tampons, in any brand. You can also notify them of any allergies that you may have so that they can personalize your treats and “extras” to your specific needs.
Subscriptions are $16/month, plus shipping.
Let’s see what’s in the September 2015 Bonjour Jolie box!
The goods were shipped in a plain (discreet!) box via priority mail.
A peek inside. So bright & colorful!
September’s box was all about de-stressing as the summer comes to an end. The info card listed everything included, as well as descriptions and retail prices for each item.
U by Kotex Super Tampons – I actually don’t use tampons, but since this was a review box I was sent these by default. I like that they include a full 18-count box — plenty to get you through your cycle.
Laura Geller Baked Eyeshadow in Pink Souffle/Plum Tart ($24) – Wow! The “gift” this month pretty much covers the cost of the entire box. That said, I’m a bit confused by the info card’s description which states that this is both paraben and mineral oil free… Yet when I checked their site to read more about the product, the ingredients do in fact list multiple forms of parabens as well as mineral oil. I’m guessing (hoping) it was just an honest mistake?
BisCotTea Shortbread ($1) – Baked shortbread cookies made with all natural ingredients including wheat flour, butter, and spices. A sample of both Blueberry Tea and Chai Tea flavored cookies were included.
Mini M&M’s ($1) – These weren’t listed on the info card, but I’m not complaining! My girls LOVE M&M’s and these mini ones are very toddler-friendly.
Donsuemor Traditional Madeleines ($2) – Soft shell-shaped French cakes with a rich, buttery flavor. Since I don’t eat dairy, these will be a nice treat for my kiddos as well.
Tocca Body Wash in Cleopatra ($4) – Okay, now this is 100% paraben-free, as stated both on the info card and on the actual product itself. It has a nice, light grapefruit & cucumber scent and is infused with natural essences of olive oil, honey, and calendula extract. It’s also gluten-free.
Chimes Organic Ginger Chews ($1.50) – Oooh! I love these ginger candies. Not only do they taste great, but they’re also smart to keep on hand for bouts of nausea — I ate these all the time in my first trimester to help with the morning sickness.
Bali’s Best Tea and Coffee Candies ($2) – These all natural hard candies are made with real tea and coffee. Actually, I think I only received the tea-based ones… Green Tea Latte and Classic Iced Tea. But they do make coffee ones too!
Yogi Tea ($1.50) – Five samples of Yogi teas were included: Calming, Stress Relief, Cocoa Spice, Bedtime, and Licorice Mint. I’m looking forward to trying that cocoa spice one… yum!
Feminine Wipes & Advil – For obvious reasons. 😉
I actually haven’t reviewed a “time of the month” box in quite a while, so I was happy to check out September’s Bonjour Jolie offering. It’s definitely a fun box to open and is packed with everything you need (and more) to get you through your period with ease… and treats!Browse more Time of the Month Boxes in my Subscription Box Directory
