SeasonsBox. It Sounds Interesting.

It popped up in a sponsored ad on my Facebook. They are in Canada. It starts at about $35.00 with shipping included. The January box is set to have a scarf, a candle, some shea butter lotion, and a couple other things. It's too expensive for me right now.

I do not know how to characterize this service exactly but I found a Groupon for it yesterday and signed up.  It is called Fresh20 and they have traditional, vegetarian (for me), and gluten free plans.  I got it because I eat healthy but I am not into cooking and exploring that stuff so I eat the same things all the time. Which is fine, but I do not think it is best for me. Here is the description from their site:

 

"SHOP

You buy 20 fresh, local and organic (when possible) ingredients. Most subscribers say it takes less than 20 minutes to complete their shopping. Many use weekend farmer’s markets to get great deals on seasonal items. NOTHING is processed or frozen, making sure everything is preservative free. Good meals for your family.

PREP

We give you a step by step guide to prep the entire week’s meals. It takes an hour at the start of your week to save you valuable time during busy weeknights.

COOK

Each complete meal takes less than 30 minutes to prepare and features simple recipes that the whole family can create together.  No more boxed mac-n-cheese or canned soup casseroles."

I have Seasonsbox coming too, I am VERY excited about this one. Looks so luxurious, I love the seasonal theme.

I just signed up for and received my first Lip Factory Inc box.  $22 a month.  I really liked what I got so I'll stick with them for a couple of months to see if they keep sending good stuff.

I don't know anything about this subscription. What did you receive? :)

Hi all,

 

I believe I talked about Yuzen Box ( the very best eco-conscious products to nourish the body and soui,) in past posts, I'd like to mention a change. They will no longer offer monthly box subs.

 

Boxes are created and sent seasonally (yeah!) which makes it more affordable for folks like me who can't do a montly sub for $26.00. Quarterly versus monthly????? A much better option for me.

 

You will receive your first box immediately after you subscribe. They then send you a little Zen for every season – a different box of Yuzen surprises for winter, spring, summer, and fall… Four boxes in all (sent November, February, May, and August). The boxes are beautifully packaged inside and out! They use beautiful japanese origami paper.

 

I gifted myself a box to check it out.  I got it at a special rate of $19.  I was so impressed with the packaging (they use origami paper inside,) the quality, the quantity and types/brands of products (beauty and food.)   Not your typical sample size, smaller than full-size, larger than sample size.

 

Let us know if you're going to give it a try and what you think.  I like the alot, and hopefully they won't go down hill and disappoint.

 

Zenfully, beautifully simple indeed!

Agreed!!

New Women's subscrption box alert!   Le Parcel – Women’s Monthly Subscription Boxes.  http://www.leparcel.com/

 

Just what we need, another "time of the month" subscription box.  Since October, they've been (3) new women's monthly box subs that I know about; this makes (4).

 

28 day hug $5.98 (tried & cancelled,) Cotton Bunny $13.75 (tried & cancelled,not worh it) Juniper $28 (deifnitely didn't try) and now Le Parcel  $15 (wont' try.)

 

I mean we're going to be swimming in tampons and pads unless you share them.  How can you really justify the price?  They all pretty much offer the same things; pads, tampons of your choosing, chocolate & tea, a spa tablet, treats, snacks and a special gift. 

 

28 day hug doesn't offer tampons or pads, but everything else, My Cotton Bunny does and some article of clothing, Juniper offers the same plus snacks & treats (they appear to be generous,) and Le Parcel, everything plus a special gift.

 

Perhaps some of you can go through all of that in a month, certainly the chocolate (they're stingy with it,) the tea well, if you like and drink tea everyday I quess, spa gift, I get those montly with my other subs.

 

What's so special?  Sorry for the rant but.....Your thoughts please.........  Inquiring minds want to know.

I agree.  The time of the month boxes are a bit of a stretch.  I actually kind of surprised the manufacturers haven't jumped on this one.  There is so much more that these boxes could do to promote womens' health too for example if there was a yoga DVD, breast self exam chart, women's vitamins, etc but right now I am perfectly happy to choose my products and my chocolate myself. 

post #137 of 643

I'm so picky about my feminine hygiene products that when I lived in the UK I had my mom ship me my brand that they didn't have there.  

 

I wouldn't mind just monthly chocolate though...not that I need it...

post #138 of 643

For leparcel you can use the code familyDBD to take off 30%, which will bring the grand total to $15.50 with shipping.

I just ordered one month to try after seeing them mentioned on Cosmo website. I must be their target audience because I like the idea of trying different feminine products :)

Anyhow, I'll let you guys know if this service is any good.

Wow, you are right, the manufacturers could really do this up in a good way if they wanted.  What a great way to encourage and educate about women's health.

Please definitely let us know!!  What I noticed is they weren't offering anything new and special that we couldn't get ourselves.  On Juniper's website, they said if there's a product they don't offer, contact them and they'l try to get it.  I e-mailed them last month, and I'm still waiting to hear back. Not a peep!   They're offering the same ones Playtex pearl, OB etc.

 

I found a tampon that I really like called Rephresh Brilliant PH tampons.  Reduces the usual PH increase during that time.  It's worked wonders for me.  I guess enough people didn't hear about it, try it or signed on 'cause you can't find it in a CVS or Walgreen's store anyone.  Only available online and I hate paying for shipping w/ minimum $25 purchase.

Sounds good I might try it!

 

TMI Alert! :) (Click to show)

My main problem is really heavy flow on two days of my period, and by heavy I mean buckets heavy! Like I need a super absorbency tampon in addition to always infinity pads because it will leak out in an hour no matter what I do. So I'm still in the middle of searching for the right products for me.

If anybody here is in a similar situation and you have good brand/product suggestions I would love to hear what they are :)

Have you been to a gyn about that?  The guideline for abnormal heaviness is something like filling a super absorbency tampon in less than 2 hours more than once a cycle.  I have the same problem (won't TMI myself with reproductive disorder talk), birth control helped some, and I use Playtex Sport tampons, my favorite as far as leaks go, however there is a maximum absorbency these products can be.  Some people love Diva Cups and other reusable options, I find them painful, but it's worth a try--especially if you are really frustrated.

Have you tried adding iron to your diet right before your period? I'm anemic and when I'm on my period I'm pretty much like you but when I take iron pills and include more iron rich foods in my diet the week before and during my period it's not as bad. I would suggest to talk to your doctor first before taking iron pills if you have any medical problems or take any other medication just to make sure you can take iron pills otherwise just include an iron heavy diet.

 

From WebMD::

To boost the amount of iron in your diet, try these foods:

  • Red meat
  • Egg yolks
  • Dark, leafy greens (spinach, collards)
  • Dried fruit (prunes, raisins)
  • Iron-enriched cereals and grains (check the labels)
  • Mollusks (oysters, clams, scallops)
  • Turkey or chicken giblets
  • Beans, lentils, chick peas and soybeans
  • Liver
  • Artichokes

 

And here's a tip: If you eat iron-rich foods along with foods that provide plenty of vitamin C, your body can better absorb the iron.

post #145 of 643

Thank you ladies for the suggestions. My gyn says there's nothing wrong with me physically, this is just how my body does it (basically it always burps out as much as it can in the first 2 days with minimal flow afterward). I'll try Playtex sport and add more iron foods to my diet and we'll see how that works out.

Let's see...there were 2 lip glosses, one by Senna and one by Two Lips.  An eyebrow stencil kit and a NYX eyebrow makeup kit.  I'm trying to remember...there were cosmetic bottle sanitary wipes, cosmetic facial wipes, some kind of primer or BB cream...forget the brand, a Cult nail polis (gorgeous!) and a crease brush.  I think that's it.  I thought it was great.  Well worth it.  I really like every single thing in it.

post #147 of 643

Oh and also Naked skin cream.  I forgot about that.

Lip Factory is one of my favorite subs. It is a little more expensive ($21 a month) but I always love everything in their boxes and to me the value of the box far outweighs the price paid. There have always been at least 3 full size products in my box, usually 4 to 5.
post #149 of 643

I heard of my brown box, a beauty sub for women of color.  it's $20 a month and they're shipping out the boxes on monday and this is the first box ever. it better be good for $20 or else....
