Blume Review September 2018
Blume is a Time of the Month Subscription Box. It represents today’s generation of confident, tenacious and conscious young women. Safe, sustainable products are big for us. Shop period and self-care products today! They kindly sent us this box for review.
Blume is one of the subscriptions I truly miss when I’m not subscribed. Time of the Month subscription boxes are my favourite to receive. There’s just something about them that makes me happy. They provide a little bit of comfort each month when I need it most.
Everyone is different, and we believe your Blume box should be personalized for you. So we made our Blume Boxes fully customizable.
Start with base box that works for you. Choose your products, add-ons, and the frequency. We take care of the rest.
Add on 1: The Self-Care Bundle includes Hug Me, Day Dreamer and Meltdown. Get the Self-Care Bundle shipped just once, or quarterly. $38
Add on 2: The Discovery Bundle includes 2 new self-care gifts that we curate and know you will love. We partner with new companies every month to help you find new products for your daily self-care rituals. The products are organic and made locally in small-batches. Get the surprise bundle every month and never stop discovering new products. $20
Add on 3: The treat, is well, pretty much self-explained! Usually chocolate, but sometimes we mix it up with popcorn or a cookie or something delicious. We think it’s almost necessary to receive a treat every month. $3
Add on 4: The PMS bundle includes tea and Cloud 9. We choose teas to soothe your period cramps and partner with local vendors to make sure it’s always delicious. Plus, avoid popping pills to relive your cramp pain and use CLoud 9 instead. Shipped once or quarterly so you never have to deal with cramps again. $15
This month we are reviewing the Base Box with the Discovery Bundle & Treat Ad-Ons. Here’s a closer look…..
Organic Tampons – Our tampons are made of ingredients you can actually pronounce, like 100% organic cotton. No mystery ingredients. A soft outer layer + an absorbent and leak-proof inner layer = the best tampons ever. Available in both super and regular so you can use the products right for you. Plus choose between plastic or cardboard applicators.
First up we have the essentials, this is what comes with your base box, your choice of pads or tampons. You can choose cardboard or plastic applicators, super or regular tampons. If you choose to receive pads you get to choose regular or overnight.
Meet the Jade Roller – This Chinese skincare tool will cool, tighten, and de-puff your face in seconds.
The Jade Facial Roller is an incredible tool for inner and outer beauty. Facial rolling is relaxing and de-stressing. It’s been a beauty ritual since ancient times in China, dating all the way back to the 7th century. Physically, it helps to firm the look of skin through gentle massage. Metaphysically, jade brings peace and harmony, and is known to help reduce stress.
I’m usually a little skeptical when it comes to products like this but after reading the description and doing a little research I am actually very excited to incorporate this into my skincare routine. I did a quick little test when taking the photos and let me tell you……it was so relaxing. I actually got a little distracted and ended up taking more time than originally planned. The roller was cooling and relaxing on my face. I can see myself using this often.
Day Dreamer – Face Wash
A gentle, moisturizing and purifying cleanser formulated using moor and soothing plant extracts including jojoba, chamomile, lavender and geranium. Lifts away surface impurities while hydrating the skin and visibly diminishing redness.
Start your day with two pumps and massage in circular motions onto wet skin. Rinse and pat dry. Moisturize, apply SPF and you’re off to slay the day.
For night use, massage 3 pumps onto wet or dry skin after makeup removal. Slowly massage in circular motions and add water as you go. Pair with your favourite night cream, add a drop of Meltdown and you’re ready for bed.
I have to admit……I am yet to try this cleanser. But that doesn’t mean it’s not going to happen. I am super picky when it comes to skincare but I trust Blume’s formula and will definitely give it a try.
The Treat – Little Wug Bakery
The treat, is well, pretty much self-explained! Usually chocolate, but sometimes we mix it up with popcorn or a cookie or something delicious. We think it’s almost necessary to receive a treat every month.
This month we received yummy shortbread cookies from Little Wug Bakery. I was really hoping for chocolate but they probably don’t want to include that every month.
Update: I ended up eating these the other night when I was craving something sweet. I had them with a cup of tea before bed, and oh my goodness……they were SO good.
Blume Review September 2018 – Final Thoughts
When it comes to must-have subscription boxes, Blume is at the top of my list. There’s just something really nice about having your period essentials delivered in the mail. Blume originally started as ElleBox and they just recently changes their name. I really, really loved the curation of ElleBox – period essentials, a couple surprise skincare items, chocolate and tea – and was kind of hoping that my September Blume box would similar and it kind of is, it’s just slightly different. I maybe would have liked to see a different skincare item in place the Blume face wash and I kind of miss seeing the chocolate and tea in the box, but other than that I am pretty happy. Blume will always be at the top of my list when it comes to Time of the Month subscription boxes.
