Pluck them good!

the-vintage-cosmetic-company-rose-gold-slanted-tweezers-review - 1As a blogger, I felt as a failure for not being a huge fan of all things rose gold. Let’s just say that in the recent months it grew on me, and I blame my Coach watch for that.

No surprise I was ecstatic to meet with the lovely guys from The Vintage Cosmetic Company for the launch of a new addition to their pretty rose gold tools range: the slanted tweezers.

the-vintage-cosmetic-company-rose-gold-slanted-tweezers-review - 3I’m a big plucker as I cannot stand hair, so this baby was a welcome addition.

Obviously they look pretty, with the engraved brand and slightly brushed stainless steel, but don’t be fooled by the shiny pink: these tweezers are very sturdy, easy to hold and with a fab grip on hair, removing from the root and not breaking them.

The slant size is great for general plucking, and if you flip to use the high side, you get great precision.

The tweezers were part of last month’s Pink Parcel‘s box of treats. Pretty and useful – just my kind of thing.

You can get The Vintage Cosmetic Company Slanted Tweezers from their website and retailers nationwide, such as Boots, and they costs £8.

That monthly thing

pink-parcel-review - 2Girls don’t really talk about our periods a lot. Not that it is the kind of thing that comes up in conversation all the time, but many tend to avoid any mention.

Truth is, it is (almost) always there. There is the discomfort, the PMS, the tenderness, the bloating, swelling, cramps… some have it much worst than others, but for most of us, it just doesn’t go unnoticed.

I am quite sensitive in my privates (sorry, over sharing), so I always keep an eye on it; I get irritation, thrush and UTI quite often if I don’t look after myself properly; that include trying to control the stresses of daily life, which do not help the cause.

That’s why I welcomed the Pink Parcel this month, my first since coming off the pill for a very long time. I was expecting it to be a nightmare, which it wasn’t, but this monthly useful treat really made it a bit better.

The Pink Parcel comes with all your tampon and pads needs – when signing up, you can pick your brand so you stick with what you like, and you can mix pads and tampons, to suit your taste. They send you enough for a normal 3-4 period so you don’t have to worry.

They have three shipping dates in the month, so you can pick the one closer to your time. Personally, I think getting it 3-5 days before my period is the best, so I can reach out for treats during the dreaded PMS.

The box comes split in neat (I love that) “sections” if you wish; “for now”, a fabric pouch, comes with pads and tampons for every day, to go in the handbag; “for later”, more pads and tampons to keep and replenish that handy little bag, “for down there”, some soothing and/or cleansing product (mine came with one of my faves Femfresh wipes) and “for you” comes packed with treats.

pink-parcel-review - 10I was very impressed with the amount of pads and tampons, as well as the “for you” treat box: something sweet, but not too much, some relaxing items, like the Badger Sleep Balm and tea plus beauty treats including favourite brands like Simple and lottie London, and some new to discover, like True Brit nail polish.

Every month, you can count on the box to come with tampons (your selected brand and something new to try), pads, tea, something sweet and beauty products.

Beauty boxes for me are not that appealing, but this is actually useful as  it comes in the right time, giving me exactly what I need!

You can subscribe to your Pink Parcel via their website, the first one costs only £6.99 including P&P, and the following one, £10.50, P&P also included!
