ElleBox Review January 2017

ElleBox is a premium monthly subscription service 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 me this box to review.

I review ElleBox on a regular basis, and I can honestly say I would be lost without it. I adore this subscription service. I know, without a doubt, that I would go through withdrawals if I no longer got to review it. Time of the Month boxes are a necessity. But I have told you that before. If I had to pick my favourite subscription box category, it would definitely be Time of the Month. Every girl needs a TOM subscription in her life.

Here’s a look at the items we received in the January box:


Ondine Naturals Soap

A calming natural soap with lavender buds sprinkled on top and scented with pure lavender essential oil. Ingredients; Vegetable, olive & coconut oils, organic shea butter, oatmeal & essential oil.

This makes me very, very happy. They have introduced me to a new brand, given me a product I use all the time and incorporated one of my favourite scents. Lavender is a good idea to have in abundance when it’s your special time. Bring on the calm and relaxation.

Ondine Naturals Chapstick

Chapstick is pretty straight forward, but I am always happy to see it in my boxes. This one has a really great ingredient list:

  • Organic beeswax, cocoa butter, shea butter, jojoba oil, castor oil, calendula oil, hemp oil, vitamin E & essential oil.
OHH Products Cocoa Mix

Missing the holidays? Cozy up with this premium Canadian hot cocoa mix. With your health in mind. GMO, gluten, dairy, soy and nut free!

This is actually pretty perfect. The last couple months, during that “special time”, I have wanted nothing other than warm drinks and chocolate. This combines them both, and it is vegan!! I will use my Nespresso frother to heat up some coconut milk, add a bit of this, and be a happy camper. This took the place of the tea this month, and I think it is a really great substitute. I would love to see more products like this.

Hagensborg Chocolate

OMG! This is amazing!! If you haven’t tried this chocolate yet, you must!! We received the same brand last month but the flavor was peanut butter chocolate. And let me tell you……it was a life saver!! I had one particularly bad night, so I poured a glass of wine, put on my most comfy pj’s, and ate the entire bar……and didn’t feel bad about it at all. This is by no means vegan friendly, but a girls’ gotta do, what a girls’ gotta do. All bets are off when it’s my “special time”…..just sayin’

Ativo Skincare Room & Body Mist

A gentle room or body spray to create a sense of serenity and tranquility. Spritz throughout a room, onto a pillow or blanket. Also safe for body use.

I get very excited for room sprays, now that I have started using them on a regular basis. I’m almost out of my current spray so this will definitely be put to use. I spray them throughout the master bedroom, and the living room each morning when I am getting ready. Something about it makes me happy.


Pretty self-explanatory. When you sign up for a subscription you can choose all pads, all tampons, or a mix. I think they use to have regular tampons or organic, but it appears as though they are now only offering organic.


I think the panty liners are a little bonus item. I’m pretty sure they don’t count towards your tampon/pad mixture. You get a total of 20 in each box.

ElleBox Review January 2017 – Final Thoughts

Love, love, love! I’m a happy girl right now. This was a really great box. ElleBox has started the year off with a bang. I feel like we received really great value this month. And can I just say how happy I am to see Hagensborg Chocolate in the box again! This is some luxury chocolate, and if I am going to indulge, I want to indulge in luxury. I also discovered some new brands this month, AND we got a cocoa mix in place of the tea. That was a genius idea! I can’t wait to have a warm cup of coconut milk cocoa tonight. These are the kind of things that get me excited. My special time is a few days away and I already feel better about it knowing I have this little box of treasures on hand. I feel like I am prepared for battle. Bring on the “special time”……….
