Bonjour Jolie Grand Opening Box Review

Happy Almost Friday, Lovelies! I'm so thrilled to bring you a review of a new 'Time of the Month' box. This one actually exceeds my expectations. I have seen other boxes in the same category and none of them really appealed to me. When I stumbled on Bonjour Jolie, I was actually intrigued by what they promised. A monthly box of pampering. And they ship to Canada! I had to check it out. When you sign up, you are given a little quiz so they can get to know your preferences and stuff along with times of your monthly cycle.

First off, the packaging and presentation are beautiful! This definitely feels like a gift someone sent me, a care package if you will. 

 Each box comes with a product card. Looks like each month will have a theme. This being their first box, it is appropriately titled 'Grand Opening Box'.
Now, let's just cut to the chase and dive in!

 Here's the main bit: You can choose up to 30 hygiene products, be it tampons or pads. I prefer pads. I know some people may have qualms about getting their pads or tampons prehandled or something. I don't. I figure, its the same as asking out loud in the ladies room 'anyone have a tampon?!' or buying from one of those vending machines. Now that the main bit is taken care of, let's get to the pampering! 

 The Edibles: Incredible!
At the top there is 5 packets of Pukka Organic teas. How perfect?! One for each day. 
There is also an assortment of Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Square. YUM!
There is also a pack of 479 Fleur de Sel Caramel Popcorn. I have seen a few 479 products in other food boxes and have always wanted to try them.

The Pampering
At the very top is a Lavender sachet. Its scent should help relax you. And if that doesn't work, the Advil next to it will. 
Below that (from left to right)
Indigo-Wild Zum JuJucuzzi Geranium Bath Salts
Pureology shampoo and conditioner sample
Earth Therapeutics Recover-E Cumber Eye Pads. I laughed when i saw these. How cute?
Hempz Age Defying Lotion

And last but most certainly not least: the gift. I received a Stila Mini Lip Glaze in Brown Sugar. :D

My period is on its way, due to arrive next week actually, do this box will be put to the ultimate test! Or am I being put to the ultimate test? Can those chocolates even make it to next week?! Haha

The cost is $16+$10 shipping/month. Out of all the boxes I've seen, this one is just the most comprehensive. I have tea and chocolate and beauty and pampering. Oh and supplies of course! I think it gives a lot more then other TOM boxes. I will be signing up for sure. Please check out Bonjour Jolie and pamper your period. :)

This sample box was sent to me for review purposes. The thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.


  1. Yep, that is a good box! Too bad the shipping is extra though.

  2. What a great concept although it sucks that there is shipping on top of that :( Thanks for sharing this, its nice to see all these new boxes coming out and available to us Canadians

  3. This is perfect! I just subscribed. I mean, considering what a miserable time the time of the month is, this is just perfection. Thank you for sharing!


Thanks for stopping by. I do love reading all your comments and try to respond to each and every one!
Thank you, Lovelies :D
