Betty Box Review – What Do I Think One Year On?

If you’ve been reading this blog for a little while, you’ll know that last year I reviewed Betty Box, a teen period themed subscription box full of all the stuff you’ll need to get you through the month, plus a few exciting extras!  Recently, Betty Box contacted me again and asked if I’d like to review their box again; considering I enjoyed it so much last time, I didn’t even consider saying no, so here we are!  This time though, I’m going to give you my thoughts on Betty Box one year on, telling you if I think it’s still worth it and chatting to you about all the different things in the box this time round, and how Betty Box have altered their service.

What Is Betty Box?

Betty Box is a teen period box subscription, which arrives on your doorstep every month.  It’s filled with a variety of tampons and pads, more than enough to last you the whole month, and what’s best, is that you can choose which pads/tampons you want on their website.  They stock a load of popular brands, including their new Betty Pads which have four sizes to fit different people – this is a change from the last time I reviewed their box, as they didn’t have their own brand of pads last time.  The box is priced at £12.99 a month, with 3 and 6-month subscriptions available on their website too!

Last year, the box was only delivered on three dates every month.  While this is still great choice, I think that the treats in the box are honestly a little too tempting to save for your period, I know I wouldn’t be able to resist using them!  Betty Box now offer any day of the month for the delivery of your box, which is amazing!  Now you’re able to time your delivery perfectly to your period, meaning those wonderful goodies I keep talking about (you’ll see them soon!) are going to be there for your immediate use when you’re feeling a bit dodgy!

The Betty Box

 What Came In The July Betty Box?

The July Betty Box was summer holiday themed, and it delivered!  It was jam packed with amazing goodies in the ‘for you’ box, but first I’ll quickly take you through the period essentials that they sent!

There are three sets of period products in the Betty Box.  You get a ‘for now’ pouch, this was filled with pads and liners, a ‘for later’ box which was also filled with pads, and the ‘for night’ box had about 5 night pads in.  Depending on your period, you might need a little more than the products than is provided by Betty Box, but on the whole they do offer a really good amount of products.

For You Box

The ‘for you’ box was really impressive this year!  It included all sorts of goodies which I’ve really enjoyed using!

  • Patissere de Bain Hand Cream in Pinapple Paradise
  • Candy Kittens in Sour Watermelon (not pictured because I really couldn’t help myself but eat them)
  • Technic Get Gorgeous Highlighter
  • NPW Beauty Junky Make-up Sponge
  • Vitamasques Sheet Face Mask – Moisturising and Clarifying
  • Jelly Pong Pong Coffee and Coconut Lip Scrub
  • We Are Tea Morrocan Mint Tea

Overall, these products add up to way more than £12.99 and they’re all something I would definitely use and find useful.  I probably wouldn’t drink the tea, but thats just because I don’t love tea, although I know my family would drink it so thats fine.  At the moment, I am really loving the pineapple hand cream; it’s the perfect size to carry around with you and it smells amazing, just like summer.  I will definietly be slipping it into my school bag for next year, as I always like to have a nice handbag-friendly sized hand cream on me!  I’m really excited to use the Vitamasques sheet mask too, as I’ve been really loving sheet masks at the moment, so I’ll definitely be trying this one out as soon as possible!  The Technic highlighter is lovely; it adds such a summery glow to your face, and seeing as though I’ve already got one in this shade, I’ll probably be passing it on to my mum.

Do I Think Betty Box Is Still Worth It?

Overall, yes, I do.  I think that Betty Box is an amazing subscription box for teens.  Periods definitely aren’t a fun part of life, however this box helps to make them that little bit easier and I would say that for the price you pay, you definitely get your moneys worth.  Betty Box also works to end period shame and rid the taboos surrounding periods.  It has a Betty returns programme to return any unused sanitary products in an aim to reduce period poverty, and has a Betty for schools programme to provide girls with the education they need surrounding your period, all of which I think is really important.  Betty Box is a great subscription box, and would even make a perfect gift for a friend!

    I was lucky enough to test one of these out a couple months ago and loved it! I didn’t know they did a scheme to help end period poverty, i love that!

      Yeah they’re really amazing, I’m so glad I’ve been able to try it out again!😊

    I’ve never heard of these before but it is such a good idea for a subscription box – I 100% would’ve loved this when I was younger. The treats you get look so good and they would make you feel better instantly! I’m so glad you still feel the same after a year, if not even more so because it shows how brands develop and adapt to their audience. Great review lovely.

      I totally agree! Betty box is so amazing, I didn’t know they existed until a year ago but I would’ve loved the opportunity to try one out when I was a little younger. Betty Box are such a great brand, they’re always growing & like you say, adapting to their audience. Thanks for reading Liz xx

    This is such an interesting post Soph. I reviewed the Pink Parcel a few months ago and thought the idea of a period subscription box was really useful. I think I actually prefer the Betty Box though, it looks so colourful and it’s got sweets in it so that always gets my vote, he he! Great review lovely! 💖☺️

      Both times I’ve had betty box it’s had sweets in, which is all good with me!😂

    I don’t think I’ve seen this particular box around before, but this looks amazing! I think it’s great for teens, but also it seems it could appeal to other young adults, too! I’m definitely interested in it ☺️ lovely review!

    I’ve never tried a period box like this before but it looks really good! I love how they know that we need way more than just pads on our period- sweets, makeup and pamper products are a necessity too!

      Yessss, it’s the perfect box! Doesn’t leave anything out x

    Absolutely love this idea and have seen a few period boxes floating around but this one looks so much better than all the others I have seen, I love the fact, as you say, that you can choose what products work best for you and you are allowed the flexibility – as opposed to just being given what you’re given kind of thing. I wish I knew about this when I first started my period as it would’ve been a lot easier and the little extra treats may have actually made me look forward to my period each month! Absolutely love this review Soph and your writing is beautiful too! x

      I’ve only recently found out about it, I wish I’d known about it when I was a little younger! I think it’s make the perfect gift for someone starting out with their period too, I know I would’ve appreciated it! Thanks for your kind words Imogen 😊
