The Cost: $21.75/month including US shipping (also ships to Canada and Worldwide)
What You Get: You can select a mix of products up to 25 items OR a full box of one product (your choice from a list). Each box will also contain a hand chosen gift, specialty bath and body products, sweets like chocolate, teas and/or drinks, feminine wipes and Advil.
Swarovski Crystal Studs– Silver plated crystals earrings. These are very sparkly costume jewelry. I don’t think I have a use for them but I think my neice might enjoy them.
Wissotzky Tea– Fruit flavored tea, both herbal and black. I love getting tea and it’s always included. I think it’s part of the reason I like these boxes so much. They always have tea. Although, if I’m honest, the only tea that actually does anything worth getting excited about is peppermint tea. It always works for my cramps and I have no idea why.
A Champagne Toast Bubble Bath– This is a 24k gold infused bubble bath. It doesn’t give any indication of the scent, though. My nose feels like it might have lavender but I could be paranoid… 😉
Snacks! There’s always a lot of snacks and chocolate will always appear in every box. I think I’m weird because I tend to crave salty, crunchy snacks. Sometimes it takes a day of restlessly digging through the cupboards for me to figure out what my problem is.
And yes, I ate all the Haribo bears before I wrote this review. They are so addicting!
The Goods– You can request any combination of 25 feminine hygiene products. So you can get as many of each type, style or strength as you want. You can also request a full box of one thing if you like. Last time I requested a full package of liners and got a box of 16. Not really worth it so this time I just requested 25 liners (who wants 16 when you can get 25??). I don’t really mind if they’re loose.
Extras- Summer’s Eve Cloths and Advil also appear in each box. I like getting these little packets. I stash them in my travel bag for emergencies. They’ll get used when I’m in Ireland.
VERDICT: I love the whole idea of Bonjour Jolie. I think this would be perfect for a young girl or teen because of the costume jewelry. Otherwise this is a nice way to get the exact product you want along with some fun goodies. For me it’s not really economical because I only need liners (which are cheap) but if you need a combination of regular and super Pearl tampons, this is going to be a cute way to get what you need. I’m not saying this is practical at all. I am saying that it’s fun and every time it shows up, I’m happy to see it.

What do you think of boxes like this? Do you have a favorite? I think I’ve only tried two… wait, three.
