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!
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.
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!
Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed it, have you ever tried Betty Box?
