A fabulous period awaits you…. with Crimson Moon

Sponsored

This beautiful package arrived for me earlier this week:

Crimson Moon Parcel

It’s a Crimson Moon parcel! Not a subscription box and Crimson Moon describe the difference being that they believe that what sets them apart from other subscriptions is that this is a personal service rather than a collection of items you receive for your home or make up samples you may never use.

And I’m inclined to agree with them. I’m guilty of NEVER tracking my cycles and land up regularly having to make frantic phone calls to my husband to pick up sanitary products on his way home from work because I forgot and got caught off guard. I’ve had so many grumbled conversations with him while he scans the sanitary isle asking me whether I need applicators or non applicators, panty liners, pads or any other of the plethora of sanitary products available to us. But with Crimson Moon, you purchase your subscription and input the approximate date of your previous period and et voila…. your box arrives beautifully wrapped and with treats, right before you need it!

The other comment that the folks over at Crimson Moon made, that was perfectly timed for me, was that despite it being the 21st century, female menstruation still remains a taboo subject. Their aim is not only to demystify the period but with a monthly gift of prettily wrapped sanitary products and treats, healthy feminine functioning becomes a good reason to celebrate!

And ironically, they said that about 20 minutes after I read this article:

A rant for women with periods….

We all say that ‘certain time of the month’ because we’ve all been socially conditioned not to talk about periods. Why? Because periods are a thing that make us feel uncomfortable to talk about. Why is that? I don’t know. Maybe it’s because our social norms were created by wealthy, prejudiced, anglo-saxon, protestant men who just couldn’t feel comfortable with the relationship between bleeding and breeding.

Which I loved because so much, in fact all of it rung true for me!

How it works:

You select the subscription for you, input the date of your last period and voila….. a few days before your next period starts, your parcel will arrive, filled with all kinds of gorgeous goods, including artisan chocolates, a curated gift  and your selection of sanitary products. You can choose from Kotex or Lil-lets, you can choose 25 items, selecting between the two brands and including tampons, sanitary towels and panty liners.

What it costs:

Crimson Moon Subscriptions

I showed it to Walter and his comment was that he’d happily buy me a subscription to avoid the frantic calls and applicator versus non applicator discussions that happen with him at 6pm in the middle of Pick ‘n Pay almost every single month.

It’s a premium service and one I think is definitely worth paying for. I really loved the box, it is beautiful and a great way to remind me that my period is due and to not be caught off guard in future, frantically tearing through the bathroom cupboard searching for sanitary products.

Crimson Moon Treats

And of course… who doesn’t need a few chocolates and treats at that time of the month!

    What a brilliant idea this is indeed – well done! (The chocolate especially – my cravings start as if on a timer!) The tampons, pantyliners, sweet treat, tea, and curated gift will all be very appreciated too 🙂

    I am going to be upfront. Originally, I thought that this was too pricey for a few tampons, but now that I’ve seen inside the gift box, I would say it is definitely worth the price. Answer: includes artisan chocolates, a curated gift and your selection of sanitary products

    Hey Hey!

    I have a godsister who is a Doula and about to pop out number 3. So to say openly talking about all things vaginal, and empowering our headliners in our conversations is an understatement. I have no problem, slapping a box of tampons or what not down on the counter at the supermarket even next to that hot stud 🙂

    I personally am much against many things and social terms in regards to genders and associations with genitals and bodily functions. Not only is it 100% unhealthy for children to be brought up using “socially accepted terms” like “That time of the month” but it can do more harm than good, introducing a culture of shame and embarrassment, thus breeding a platform for people not to talk about any problems they may have or are facing. Questions that need answering that aren’t being asked etc.

    I am so happy when I hear my godsister explain to her 2 daughters about where babies live, how they come out (real ernst talk about a human coming out of moms nether region) and how excited they are at learning this new knowledge, and how they understand its something to be respected not shamed or made fun of at the same time.

    Strangely enough as I often find myself in gender debates. (I don’t believe in labeling people and especially gender tagging). However I have noticed that generally your partner, male to female or which ever is usually as comfortable talking about YOUR period as you are. If you’re shamed about it, likely they will react in the way, but if you’re honest, open and casual then there usually isn;t any issues around it.

    Most of my friends are male and they have no problem when I talk about or mention that I am on my period, hell some even ask if I want some chocolate or a back rub? Lol 🙂

    And this package? This package is amazing! 25 items of your choice firstly is an amazing deal, better than I have seen in regards to similar arrangements. AND CHOCOLATES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am sold 🙂

    While I have no problem buying products as mentioned I’d love something like this because hell, lets be honest! Who doesn’t like to feel special,spoiled, cared for during our periods? It’s like a gift to self that only self knew you’d love 🙂
