Teen Parcel is a subscription service, which sends girls a lovely bundle of treats 3-5 days before their period is due. With top brand pampering beauty goodies, a sweet treat, a relaxing drink and a supply of sanitary products, the Teen Parcel will make young girls feel a lot better about what they are going through. The parcels are delivered straight to the door in a cute pink box, which fits through the letterbox.
Inside, you will find something 'for now', something 'for later' and something 'for you', all individually packaged in pink.
The service allows you to pick which type of sanitary product is included so girls can choose between towels and tampons, and also select a favoured brand, such as Lil-lets, Always, Kotex or Tampax and pick the required absorbency. Parcels are tailored to individual girls' needs.
The black drawstring bag, which contains five tampons, is great and allows girls to carry a supply of tampons in their school bag or handbag. There are two boxes of extra packages of ten tampons that should be sufficient to last for the month. It is an efficient way to get sanitary products delivered direct to your door and saves young girls from having to purchase them in shops, which could prove embarrassing for them.
The beauty goodies are really amazing. Kizzy was really excited by the Clean & Clear products, the lovely braided bracelet and the Binky London nail varnish. She was really impressed with her 'period presents' as she called them! It even included a sweet treat and a Teapigs chocolate teabag for some comfort. Every month, different pampering products from some major brands are included in the parcels.
The Teen Parcels are a teen friendly version of the Pink Parcel subscription service for women. They aim to take the fear out of what can be a scary time in a young girl's life, replacing it with something more positive. Subscriptions can be taken out as gifts, and it really is a lovely thing for a young girl to receive, making this aspect of growing up much more appealing.

"Periods aren't the best things in the world and they aren't any fun. Having a cute package delivered every month will definitely make things easier and worth the suffering! I like that it gives you a month's supply of sanitary products so you never run out and the fact that you get some lovely gifts to cheer you up is great. I was pleased that the Clean & Clear beauty products were included because they are beneficial to teenager's skin. The parcels are really thoughtful and I'd be happy to receive one every month to make me feel special if I'm feeling a bit down about things. In fact I'm going to ask if I can subscribe to Teen Parcel right now!"
A Teen Parcel subscription is just £9.95 a month, which is excellent value for what is included. The first package comes at a special offer price of just £5.95. You are free to cancel at any time with no obligation. You can manage your account online, adjusting the dates to ensure the parcel arrives exactly when it is needed.
Buying a Teen Parcel subscription for a young girl really can help them get through a tough time in their lives. I think they are an excellent idea and seeing Kizzy enthuse about the contents has made me see just how appreciated a parcel through the post will be every month. They can help make periods less embarrassing and increase young girls' body confidence. Kizzy said it made her feel special, which is exactly how young girls should be made to feel.
