Introducing Love Lois - Subscription Service

It's been way too long since I last had a box of goodies sent to me, like to those beauty/fashion boxes that I was once subscribed to and received each month. Or even a parcel box full of items as a gift (rarely happens anyway). I recently got introduced to one subscription service box that's been available in Australia for about a year called 'Love Lois' - can you guess what it's all about?

Hint: It's a monthly box... for your monthlies

Was the hint clear enough? That's right, it's a box for females only so for any males reading this, you might want to click away, unless you're interested in purchasing this for your partner/friend then stay if you wish (and oh how sweet of you)! Let me briefly introduce the Love Lois concept to you:

Love Lois provides a convenient way of receiving everything you need, straight to your door for your period each month and you can set your own delivery date. Although it is a subscription service, you're not locked into any contracts and you're free to cancel or suspend anytime. The box is sent in a white plastic satchel for discreetness - no one will know what's in it unless you tell them!

There are currently 4 different service plans - Helena, Melina, Pandora and Tabitha, depending on your needs and there is also the choice of having regular or organic products. I was sent the 'Melina' regular box which is the most popular choice for medium periods lasting for 5 days with pads and tampons (as well as some chocolates and herbal teabags which are available in all plans). The default box looks like so:

Melina Regular - $23 /month inc. delivery

The contents packaged neatly in the box
(Using my new pink desk to take photos on and I find it so fitting for these girly pictures!)

As soon as I opened the box, I noticed that it was full to the brim with such handy items for that time of the month. It's really nice to be greeted with a message starting with 'Hey Girl' /thinks of all those Ryan Gosling Hey Girl memes ;)

A little 'Dear Diary' excerpt comes in the box too ~ a funny read!

The contents
  • 16 pack of regular tampons and 16 pack of mini tampons*
  • 5 x overnight pads, 3 x regular pads and 2 x light pads
  • 2 x teabags and a handful of chocolates - right amount of sweetness for the health-conscious!

*For you to alternate between as they are unable to physically separate the packs.

What I love about this type of subscription service is that you're able to pick and choose exactly what you want in it so that nothing goes to waste. Having variety to make your order a little more personalised is perfect for this as a one-size-fits-all approach isn't for everyone. I've received some beauty boxes that have had items that I know I would never use e.g. fake tan and when there are unwanted items like these, I feel that the box isn't worth it when you have to pay X amount of money and not be able to utilise everything. With Love Lois, all of the items are listed on their site as well as images to get an idea of what will be in the box while still allowing them to add in a few surprises here and there with the selection of chocolate and teabags and a funny read.

And it goes beyond the choice of whether to have just pads, tampons or both and the types/brands - you can choose to have a different treat if chocolate isn't for you due to diet, allergy or personal preference. Not to worry as they'll be able to pick out something nice for you :)

The price ranges from $22 to $25 a month and I would say that this is definitely reasonable when shipping is included (or you can think of it as being free). It's perfect for those who may not be able to go out and make these purchases on their own, and also for sending to someone you care about, even if that means sending it to yourself hehe. Let Lois come to the rescue!

Questjen for you:

Are you subscribed to any monthly services/boxes?

I'm also wanting to find out about any others that I may not have heard of before!
