Not only was I looking forward to the March Pink Parcel box because I’d seen the previews on Instagram, I just knew that the International Women’s Day themed box would be filled with amazing products.

Plus, I was so impressed to see the brand getting behind the gender equality campaign #PressforProgress. I love that a company that produces such amazing products also has a social conscience and were doing their bit to raise awareness for women’s issues. My kind of brand.

So, what was in the box?

Two things really excited me about this box before it even arrived: Dr Botanicals facial oil and the Balance Me mist. Frankly, I love anything with rose as a key ingredient so I felt sure that I would love this and the mist is an exclusive sample and who doesn’t like to be the first to try something.

Dr Botanicals Moroccan Rose Superfood Facial Oil

I’ve never tried a facial oil before and this seemed like a good one to start with as it ticked so many of my boxes; it’s plant-based, cruelty free and suitable for all skin types.

The Dr Botanicals facial oil contains both Vitamins A and C to rejuvenate the skin whilst diminishing the signs of ageing. It also includes almond oil to moisturise and nourish the skin. This oil smelt amazing and feels luxurious, a little really does go a long way. This was a beautiful treat to massage into my face after removing the day’s makeup. Honestly, it feels like a spa day every time I use it.

I couldn’t even begin to tell you how much I miss coffee now that I can longer drink it.

Now as a mum to small kids, I can’t tell you if this helps with a hangover but I can tell you that after a night of interrupted sleep and the clocks going forward, the peppermint smell in this really woke me up. It did its job and my skin was left super soft, so I was a happy bunny.

My love for red, matte lipstick is well-known. I am literally obsessed and this Jelly Pong Pong matte lipstick is a great addition to my collection. It smells so good and I love the chunky pencil tip which makes it easy to apply. I like my lip products to be long-wearing as I’m a bit of lazy beauty blogger, and this lasts really well. I managed about 6/7 hours, including eating and drinking without needing to reapply. This is seriously a new favourite.

Balance Me Hyaluronic Plumping Mist
I have tried a few different Balance Me products and always like them, so expected to love this too. This can be used on clean skin before moisturising to lift your complexion but I quite like using it as a spritz to freshen up my makeup throughout the day.  


I don’t really need a lip plumper and honestly I don’t see the point in them. This was one of the more pleasant ones. It didn’t feel painfully tingly like some do but I didn’t notice a difference at all.

Who doesn’t love a cup of tea? Who doesn’t love a cup of tea that tastes delicately sweet, smells beautiful and helps a women’s cause. A pack of 25 tea bags costs £5 and right up until the end of May, £2 from every box will be donated to the Eve Appeal which funds pioneering research into gynaecological cancers.
It’s almost as if the guys at Pink Parcel realised that I’m at on a bit of a health kick and included this pack of crunchy pieces of coconut coated in a thing layer of chocolate. These were a much healthier snack than my usual crisps and biscuits so helped to keep me on track with healthy eating plan Healthy snacks, products that donate to charity and glowing skin,this is definitely the best box that I’ve had in a long while. . 
Which of these products were your favourite? What would you like to try?
