I received my second treat box! I love these boxes and can’t wait for them to arrive at the end of the month, already put in an order for my next one, so exciting. So this is a review of my May Period box by The Treat Trove whose website is: http://thetreattrove.co.uk/ they have a variety of different boxes and don’t have to contain reusable menstrual products! They now stock individual items so you don’t have to purchase a box you can try different brands through their site. All of these products vary in price but the box I get is £24.95 which is really good for the amount of things you get. They change the products and suppliers every month and keep everything completely hush hush so it’s a surprise when you open your box. For this box I’d requested not to receive and bath products or candles as I can’t use them so they get wasted. They were happy to adjust things as needed and I received a fantastic range of products.
This box included three different cloth pads, two of them are from the same supplier and are part of a set. They unfortunately didn’t have a label to identify which supplier it was but I asked on the Treat Trove chat Facebook group and found out they were Tender Loving Cloth with I’m ecstatic about because I really wanted to try cloths from this maker! I’m not a fan of them having spots but I love the bright colours that they came in and they feel very soft and thin. I will review them properly in a separate blog once I’ve had the chance to try them out. https://www.facebook.com/Tender-Loving-Cloth-Creations-460899627345718/?fref=ts
The third cloth is gorgeous! The print is so colourful and I fell in love with it as soon as it arrived. I’d never heard of Red Queen Cloth pads and now I’m going to have to try more from them. This is a 10” heavy pad and it says so on it tag, it came with a very well designed label so I knew exactly what I was getting. Very impressed and the link for their Facebook page is: https://www.facebook.com/RedQueenCloth/?fref=ts so check them out if you also love the design! Again I’ll post a review of it once I’ve tried it out to let you know how it is.
On to the other items I received. The first thing is a small photo booklet. At first I wasn’t too sure what it was, just thought it was a strange notebook, but then I was told it’s to put photos in. It’s a lovely pattern and adorable but I have to be honest and say I probably won’t use it, in fact I’ll be giving it to my friend who’ll probably use it for cat photos so at least it’s being used. I can’t tell you anything about the makers or where to find it as there is no label! If you’re interested then it’s probably best to contact the people over at Treat Trove to find out more. Again it’s a nice idea but not for me.
The next little gift is a fantastic lip balm. It’s Berry Sorbet and smells delicious. I’ve used it a few times now and it’s great for when your lips are getting dry and it goes on really easily. They use all natural ingredients and are against animal testing, they just use organic ingredients. Really recommend this and when I’ve finished it I will definitely be looking at buying some more and will be trying some of their other products as they have a huge range of things. Can’t wait to do an order once I get paid next month! Their website is: http://www.handmadesoap.co.uk/ourshop/ so check them out and stock up on chemical free products. Really great little handmade goodies.
While on the topic of things that smell great the foot soak that came in this box is brilliant! Wish I could let you all smell how amazing it is, it’s lemon and lime and smells really fresh and is perfect for the summer. It’s made by Yorkshire Bath Boutique and is completely handmade which is something I now look for when I buy pamper products. I like to know what I’m using on my skin and this lists them on the package. My only real negative about this is that the label is very hard to read, it’s quite fuzzy and makes you go a bit cross eyed, the bag also doesn’t have a proper seal so it did leak into the box and coated everything else. At least everything smelt great. I haven’t used it yet as I’m waiting on having a really girly pamper evening before I do but I recommend checking out their website: http://www.yorkshirebathboutique.co.uk/store/ they have a lot of different products that would be great for a girly night in or just for you to treat yourself like I have over the last month. Bye-bye money!
There was a sample of tea which is called Cupcake Tea, I’m not really a flavoured tea drinker, I tend to stick to good ol’ PG Tips, but this is a Sweet Honey flavour which wasn’t awful. I know that sounds like it’s bad but for someone who doesn’t like herbal teas it’s a massive compliment! It’s a mixture of Banana and Honey and I didn’t hate drinking it, in fact I finished the entire cup. So if you like these teas you’ll probably love this one. Admittedly I wouldn’t buy a box for myself but I am would love to order some for my friend who loves this kind of thing. Unfortunately there is no website on the package so I have no idea where I can get some, I’ll just keep my eyes peeled when I do my next food shop.
We have now reached the final product, Eton Mess Chocolate! Absolutely delicious! It’s handmade by Sweet Love Chocolate whose Facebook page is: https://www.facebook.com/alrewassweetlove/ and it was perfect. The size of the bar was just the right size for me as I can’t eat a lot of chocolate in one go without feeling sick. It had what I think was meringue and freeze dried strawberries on top which literally melted in your mouth. The balance of the topping and the chocolate was perfect and they’re perfect if you have an event coming up and need small gift bags making up. They do a range of different products so please go and have a look at the link, I wish I had the money to order a batch of their fudge because my mouth waters just looking at the pictures.
There we have it folks, my review of the Treat Trove Period box. I really hope you enjoyed reading and please subscribe for more or leave me some feedback! I’m so new to blogging that I appreciate any help or recommendations that you guys might have for me! Thanks for reading!
