I love my Period for Good box. It’s one of my favorite subscriptions. I love the little treats they include and the fact that I never have to make last minute trips to the store for much needed supplies. The women that run this company are amazingly thoughtful and wonderful. I could carry on, but after trying other companies with lackluster costumer service and subpar boxes, I’m thrilled every month with Period for Good and the amazing things they do for me AND the charities they (we?) support.
Not familiar with Period for Good? Period for Good is a monthly time of the month subscription box. There are a few others out there that provide supplies, a treat, and a small gift to get you through that rough patch we all hate so much.
Period for Good subscriptions start at 19 dollars a month and are pretty customizable. They offer 4 different basic boxes but you can add pads or tampons to any of those boxes for 2 bucks. Don’t see your favorite brand? Send them an email! Most likely they can find it for you!
Oh! And I almost forgot to mention the “good” part of Period for Good. 20% of the box price goes directly to a charity of your choice. They sponsor 6 charities plus a “U-Pick” option where subscribers can request a charity of the month. You can learn more about the selected charities by clicking here. I selected Tripp Halstead, but all of these charities are pretty amazing.
Period for Good ships via USPS. While they don’t provide tracking info, it really isn’t necessary, boxes show up 7-8 days before your expected start date. You put in all of your cycle info when signing up and I swear their tracking program is far more accurate than the app I use. The box is plain and discreet, besides the cute chevron sticker, in case you have concerns about the postman knowing your cycle.
First look! Is that Halloween candy I see?! Yes! I love the sealed plastic bags Period for Good uses. I know some women would prefer a full, sealed, box of tampons, but eh. They are all still in wrappers, so I really don’t care, but the totally sealed bag is nice. And they did it again with the purple and lime green! I won’t get sick of it! Ah!
Period for Good doesn’t do a traditional info card but rather a nice letter explaining why they selected each product in the box. On the back, they offer an update from the charity of your choice. I noticed this month’s update for Tripp is the same as last month, so I’m guessing that it’s a rather costly therapy and they are using several months of donations to help cover the cost.
The Treat: Candy Classics
Last month they added mini Heath bars. They were so well received that they gave subscribers more classic candies! I love it and for whatever reason, classic minis remind me of fall and Halloween so it’s unintentionally perfect for a September/October box.
Cramp tabs and Wipes:
Each box will always include 2 packs of cramp tabs. They are, for obvious reasons, super helpful to have around and work really well. They provide a nice break from Advil. This month they also included a few wipes which are a great bonus. They are individually wrapped making them super useful at home or on the go.
The Gift: Brown Sugar Shop Sea Clay Mask
This month’s gift is from The Brown Sugar Shop, an etsy store with all sorts of body sugaring and nature skincare products. Period for Good always strives to partner with women run small businesses/crafters, which provides a nice personal touch. This product is a clay mask. You make a paste from it out of water and/or essential oils. It’s rather nice as there’s so much flexibility with a product like this. I mixed a little bit with tea tree oil and chamomile to help with a few breakouts.
The Goods: U By Kotex
The box I sub to includes 5 supers and 15 regulars for 19 dollars. They offer a wide variety of brands,types, and quantities of protection.
Overall, this was another great box! I got what I needed, a nice little treat, a small gift, plus an update from Little Tripp! Perhaps as it cools down, we’ll see some tea in boxes!
