ElleBox is a fabulous subscription box that delivers ORGANIC pads and/or tampons right to your door on a monthly basis, which you can alter based on when your monthly gift arrives. You can also add chocolate, tea and 2 surprise gifts that are locally made, organic/natural products. I LOVE this concept because I always go through a hard time on my period, and having great comfort products helps make the process much easier.
I first heard of this company while I was researching pads and tampons to find out where I could find brands that didn’t contain bleach, dioxins and other chemicals. The average woman will wear a pad or tampon for about 75,000-80,000 hours in her lifetime, and its a scary thought to imagine the amount of harsh chemicals exposed to a woman’s reproductive organs in these extensive hours. I found that ElleBox actually carries organic pads and tampons that don’t contain bleach or harmful chemicals.
Ellebox’s mission is simple:
We are here to offer 100% transparency. Our pads and tampons are free of rayon, polyester, wood pulp and pesticides. Our products are made from certified organic cotton that is better for your health and the environment. We exist so you can have control over your body; no BS, no hidden ingredients. Be kind to your body, be kind to the planet, and have a conscious period.
ElleBox is your customized selection of pads and tampons and some other stuff that you definitely need. Choose your favourite ElleBox, pick your preferences and we’ll make sure it arrives every month, when you need it most.
This is one of my favourite subscription boxes for a few reasons. First, you don’t know that the box is meant for feminine products because of the simple “Ellebox” logo on the box. Second, you can custom build your box and select which tampons/pads you want, whether you want a mix or only one kind. Third, you can choose when the box is delivered to you based on when you will be getting your period.

The box always comes with a product card (if you order the comfort box) with information regarding the products. Livelaughblog pays for this box.
Our pads and tampons are free of rayon, polyester, wood pulp and pesticides. Our products are made from certified organic cotton that is better for your health and the environment. We exist so you can have control over your body; no BS, no hidden ingredients.
You have the option of whether you want pads, tampons, or a mix of both (I think this is great) and I decided to just go with pads this time around. There are regular pads along with smaller and lighter pads depending on the heaviness and the day of your period. They are also organic and thus much lighter/absorb liquid much faster than non-organic feminine products. The pads are free of the chemicals that are found in store-bought brands- which is very important to me as an advocate for healthy living.
Tea Sparrow- Candied Almond: $20.00/monthly
What is a period subscription box without tea? I always appreciate Tea Sparrow because of their cheap price for teas (see Tea Sparrow Subscription Box Review- December Box!) and the variety of 4 different loose leaf teas that come in their subscription boxes. I’m not sure if they offer the option to purchase individual loose leaf teas, but regardless I have never been disappointed with these teas. ElleBox always includes a full sized bag which will give you about 6-10 cups of tea depending on how much you put in your tea! I drink loose leaf tea every single day without missing a beat so it’s always great to add this tea to my growing collection. I also love the concept of including tea in a ‘time of the month’ box because of its soothing and relaxing qualities. I’m actually drinking this tea as I write this review and its fantastic!
Smart Sweets Seriously Sour Gummy Bears: $47.88/ 12 bags
Enjoy the first candy that kicks sugar- Naturally. SmartSweets are chewy gummy bears that are bursting with juicy, fruity flavour and pack a seriously sour punch. Every ingredient we use is non-GMO, always real and never artificial. No gluten, sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners. Made with real ingredients that kick sugar so you can feel good about every bite! Be Smart, Eat Smart.
The picture below is taken directly from the website and the reason is kind of embarrassing.. I ate the entire bag in one sitting and my amazingly neat mother threw away the wrapper before I even got a chance to take a picture (true story)! So to sum it up.. these healthy treats are delicious and make you feel decent about yourself after inhaling a whole bag because they are a healthy alternative to sugary candy!
Cheri Arome Body Polish with Pink Clay: $8.99
A premium sun dried pink clay from Australia. Pink Clay is an excellent choice for providing hydration to the skin while helping improve skin texture, fine lines etc. Suitable for all skin types.
I am suppppper in love with body scrubs and polishes- I have actually recently began to explore how to make my own with my new essential oils kit! I love using clays for face or body scrubs and it makes me happy knowing that only natural ingredients are used in this scrub.
Cheri Arome Glow Face Lotion: $15.99
It provides intensive moisturizing benefits to skin without leaving a greasy after-feel. It helps to make your skin “silky smooth”. No additive color added. Natural orange color from Sea Buckthorn oil. As seen on Dr.Oz and many popular TV shows, Sea buckthorn oil is well-known today for its healing and rejuvenating effects on the skin. It can also help heal burns, cuts, wounds, sunburn, rashes, and other types of skin damage. It is a new superfruit in the market. Tsubaki oil is the beauty secret of ‘geisha’. Tsubaki oil contains a really high amount of omega 9 fatty acid, as well as vitamins A, B, D and E! A and E are potent antioxidants that help repair sun damage while omega 9 moisturizes deeply, especially on dry and matureskin. The oil has a molecular design similar to water’s, which allows it to penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin.
I love the combination of oils and pure ingredients in this face lotion. I honestly have been using pure face oils for a while now and they have pretty much replaced my face moisturizers and lotions. With the amount of oils in this lotion I will definitely have to try it out on my skin!
Elle Box has always been one of my favourite subscriptions for many reasons. It saves me the hassle of purchasing tampons and pads every month, I don’t have to worry about exposing my body to toxins because of the organic feminine products that ElleBox includes, and they include only natural, pure and/or organic products that truly pamper women during their time of the month. I love that the box always includes a candy or treat and tea, as this is great around your period, and they listened to suggestions to include a different kind of chocolate bar than the last couple of boxes.
I did notice on the product card that there was a ‘lip tint moisturizer’ that was not included in my box. I emailed Elle Box and they answered me within the same day and promised to send me the product right away. Mistakes happen and Elle Box has wonderful customer service that always responds efficiently.
