Delightful Cycle is a time of the month subscription box that sends an assortment of items to pamper you during your period.
Each box will include a customized selection of products based on a survey that subscribers fill out upon signing up. You can expect to receive your preferred brand of tampons/pads, along with a variety of “fun” pampering items. These items can include bath bombs, beauty products, sweet treats, face masks, lip balms, scrubs, salty snacks, skin care products, and more.

Let’s see what’s in my September 2017 Delightful Cycle box!
Everything was shipped in a plain white (aka discrete!) box.
A peek inside!
Since the boxes are normally customized to each individual subscriber, there wasn’t an info card included. I didn’t fill out a survey, so the items I received were (I’m guessing) selected at random to represent a typical box.
These gentle wipes easily remove dirt & makeup while soothing the skin with cucumbers & aloe vera. They’re safe for sensitive skin and are even biodegradable.
Wet this this natural loofah pad and gently massage over the face with a smooth circular motion to remove dirt, exfoliate, and leave your skin feeling soft & smooth.
An “intense moisture” hand & body lotion to soothe extra dry skin. The ingredients are a little questionable (mineral oil, paraffins, red 40, etc), but if that isn’t an issue this is a good sized lotion to keep in your bag.
The classic crispy rice & marshmallow treats that everyone grew up on. Perfect for those time of the month sweets cravings.
A tinted lip balm infused with vitamins A & E, grape seed oil, and jojoba oil to help nourish, protect, and moisturize lips. The formula has a sheer tint and fresh, minty flavor.
Extra eyeshadow applicators are always nice to have around. These ones are double-sided and claim to apply makeup evenly without any streaks or creases.
This isn’t the most high-end shadow palette (I think I’ve seen it at the Dollar Tree) and it has parabens aplenty, but I guess it works if you’re on a budget and just want to play around with different colors.
A bag of crunchy cheese puffs to have on hand for those “salty/savory” type cravings.
There wasn’t much info provided on the label, so I’m not sure if this scrub was made in-house or by another company. It’s obviously handmade (with love!) and very… blue. 😉 It had a great blueberry scent, though clearly artificial. (I really wish an ingredient list was included on the label.)
I always appreciate getting pain relief products in period boxes because I never think to buy it myself. This tube is the perfect size for tucking in my bag so I always have it at hand. 🙂
A pink & purple iridescent zipped makeup bag/pouch held all of the hygiene products in this month’s Delightful Cycle box. Cute, but definitely more suited for a tween/teen than someone like myself who’s pushing 40. (Ouch.)
I received 11 pads, which I believe are Always Ultra Thins with 8 hour leak protection (and wings!). Thankfully, my periods are always pretty light, so these should get me through 2 cycles.
I don’t use tampons, so I had to do a little detective work and determined that these are Playtex Sport tampons. I received 5 regulars and 5 supers — so 10 in all.
Lastly, there were a handful of various candies for your additional sweets cravings. — Caramels, salt water taffy, and chocolate truffles.
Delightful Cycle is definitely a fun box to help make your time of the month a little less unpleasant. There was a nice mix of both snacks/treats and pampering products, as well as the necessary pads, tampons, and even some pain reliever. 🙂 — Remember, for a limited time you can save 25% on your first box with coupon code “HELLO25“!
