Bonjour Jolie: Honoring the Feminine - August 2013

Bonjour Jolie is a time of the month subscription box and is a fairly new, mother-daughter company.  This is my second box.  The August box features all women owned businesses.  All boxes are $16/month plus $5 shipping.  They also ship to Canada and Internationally, but shipping costs are more. 

I love this subscription because not only can you get pretty much any type of pad, liner, and tampon brand, but you will also receive a gift, edible treats, and beauty items!  Not to mention everything is presented so nicely! You can choose any number of pads, liners or tampons out of the allotted 25. 

August 2013 Bonjour Jolie
The Gift
This month's gift is a silver and stone bracelet.  These bracelets are handmade by women in Peru, and made with alpaca silver and precious stones such as: black onyx, lapis lazuli, mahogany obsidian, Andean pink opal, rose quartz, tiger's eye, and turquoise.  This bracelet is so pretty, and I can't wait to wear it!

The Edibles
 I got 2 Leccare Lollipops in Peach Cobbler and Apples & Honey.  These are handmade and created with simple ingredients like sugar, filtered water, flavors and spices.  I've only had the Peach Cobbler flavor and it was really good.

Also included was 5 bags of tea from the Just Add Honey Tea Company.  This company is located in Tucker, Georgia and each bag of tea is handblended.  I got the flavors: "Wild Blueberry," "Georgia Peaches," two in "Berries!," and "Chocolate Delight." My family is from Georgia, I have lived there, and go there quite frequently, so I know these teas will be good!  Everything is better from the south when it comes to food items.

The Pampering
Next, I received a small sample of the Organic Herbal Hand Scrub from Beazers Garden, which also came with a coupon code.  Made in New York, it is made with essential oils, Demerara, Turbinado, and herbs.  I love scrubs, of any kind!

I got two packets of the Happy Hands Lotion from the Happy Hands Store, in scents of  "Rose Petals" and "Sandia Sage & Lavender."  These lotions are made with natural essential oils and mineral oil.  No parabens, thankfully.  These will come in handy since I have dry hands quite frequently.

Scaredy Cat Mineral Eye Shadow is the next beauty item by Scaredy Cat Cosmetics.  It is cruelty-free and contains no parabens, fillers, fragrances, talc, and bismuth.  I got it in the color in "Cirrina," and comes in a sample size, but what they call a "Trial Vial."  This color is so pretty and I think I will purchase more sample sizes from their Etsy shop.

I also received Herbal Bath Salts from the Barefoot Apothecary.  I got Detoxify in "Juniper Cedar."  I haven't used bath salts in a long time and looking forward to see how these work.  It does smell really good and these bath salts are made to be clarifying, healing, and rejuvenating.  Sounds very relaxing.

Finally, I got Sensibles Sanitary Bags by Scensibles Bags, which are for throwing away your tampons in.  These are perfect to put into my purse.  They have a really nice scent too!

Also, you get sample packets of Advil in your box.  I decided to not mention or show a picture of the pads and tampons I received, since that is not the exciting part LOL!

I highly recommend this subscription!  I can't wait for September's box.
