ElleBox is a premium Time of the Month Subscription Box which bundles your choice of tampons and pads with hand curated comfort and wellness goods to make that time of the month a little more pleasant – LOVE IT!! They kindly sent us this box to review.
ElleBox is my simple little pleasure. It’s a monthly gift to myself, and it’s the perfect way to make myself feel better when Aunt Flow comes to visit. Not to mention the fact that it allows me to skip a trip to the grocery store.

- Your ElleBox Arrives
This month I am reviewing the Comfort Box and in my opinion it is the only way to go. Here’s a look at the items I received in my April Box…..
The Essentials – Regular Tampons & Pads
Each box is customizable with up to 16 pads and tampons. Their products are made from certified organic cotton, it’s better for your health and the environment. This is one of the features that sets ElleBox apart from other Time of the Month Subscription Boxes.
Can we just talk about the fact that ElleBox only includes organic tampons and how amazing that is?! I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty darn picky when it comes to the items I put in my body. It gives me piece of mind knowing that ElleBox feels the same way I do about feminine hygiene.
BKind Coffee And Peppermint Scrub
Just as your morning coffee, our coffee body scrub is the perfect partner to kick off your day. Made with Fairtrade and organic coffee from the Montreal based company Café Rico, it exfoliates your skin gently, helps stimulate blood circulation and helps to firm your skin. Our product also contains volcanic pumice stone, well known for its exfoliating and skin-softening properties. The added sea salt will naturally detoxify and absorb your skin’s toxins. Finally, the added peppermint oil creates a cooling sensation on your skin. Together, these natural ingredients are combined to leave your skin perfectly smooth, refreshed and moisturized at the same time.
Body scrub really is the perfect item for a Time of the Month box…..if you ask me. I rarely purchase these kind of products for myself but absolutely LOVE receiving them. A good body scrub is the perfect excuse to spend a little more time in the shower or tub pampering yourself.
BKind Hand Balm
Need a deep nourishing therapy for your irritated skin? The BKIND hand balm, made with the finest moisturizing ingredients, will come to the rescue of your dry skin areas, just like your hands, constantly exposed to external damage. Made with shea butter, a natural source of vitamin A, our hand balm moisturizes, soothes and promotes tissue healing. It also contains coconut oil, well known for its nourishing, emollient and repairing properties, that will add a smooth texture and delays skin ageing. Apricot oil will penetrates into your skin quickly, leaving your hands feeling soft and non-greasy, while the added vitamin E naturally helps boosting your collagen production and maintains skin elasticity. Finally, all those powerful natural ingredients comes together as a winning formula to keep your hands soft, young and protected.
We received two products from BKind this month and I am over-the-moon. Not only does this brand have the cutest packing ever, but their products are natural and vegan-friendly. Here’s what they have to say…
“Our mission is to provide quality products that are not tested on animals and are completely safe for the environment. Our products are plant-based and made from 100% natural ingredients.”
Tea Sparrow Tea
This month we received Organic Peppermint tea which just happens to be my go-to for my evening cup. Don’t get me wrong, I love fun flavours and different blends, but you just can’t go wrong with go old peppermint. It’s comforting, caffeine-free and perfect as a bedtime treat. It’s even better when paired with a little piece of Truffle Pig Chocolate……
Truffle Pig Sea Salted Almond
Get your chocolate fix on! This farm-to-bar chocolate features 70% cacao. Scientists say cacao can improve your mood, be an excellent source of fiber, reduce inflammation, and support heart health! Grab this for a guilt-free snack that satisfies your choco cravings.
This little bar of chocolate alone is reason enough to subscribe to ElleBox. But I have told you that before. When I’m having an especially crappy day this is guaranteed to make me feel better. Truffle Pig Chocolate is THAT good. ElleBox works with this brand on a regular basis and I am completely ok with that!
We also received a few hair ties from Graced By Grit which is premium athletic apparel designed to empower women. I had a quick look on their website and they have some cute basics. ElleBox provided us with a coupon for $50 off a purchase of $100.
ElleBox Review April 2018 – Final Thoughts
When it comes to my monthly ElleBox delivery the word obsessed comes to mind. I am 100% OBSESSED with this box. I always have been and always will be. I swear by Time of the Month subscriptions. Every single menstruating woman on the planet needs a subscription like this in her life. No need to make a trip to the store for tampons….. who has time for that! And you receive the perfect amount of products to pamper yourself. It’s a wonderful little experience in a box. Here’s what I do with my ElleBox each month……when my “bad” day hits I do the following: make a cup of tea, run a warm bath, use one of the bath products I have received, get out one of my Book of the Month selections, break off a piece of chocolate and turn off my phone. Doesn’t that sound amazing?! Ya, I thought so………
