Project-B Pregnancy Subscription Box (25-29 Weeks)

For the past three months I've had the opportunity to try out Project-B's pregnancy subscription box. This month I've received my fourth box which is tailored to weeks 25-29 of pregnancy (you can read my reviews of boxes 1, 2 and 3 too).

The theme of this months box is RELAX which is exactly what I feel like I need to be doing right now. I'm so tired but still quickly trying to get the last of the baby bits in.

My box was the usual Project-B branded box with the goodies inside wrapped in blue tissue paper and fastened with a Project-B sticker. In addition to this, I received a rather large plain cardboard box too which really intrigued me.

Inside my boxes were:

1. BLOOM Heartwarming Rooiboos Tea (RRP £4.22 for 20 teabags) - I do love a good cup of tea but I worry about the caffeine content now that I am pregnant. BLOOM teas are designed to support your body's changing needs and deliver antioxidants and regular hydration. It's caffeine-free too!

2. St Eval Candle Company Tranquility Scented Candle (RRP £8.95) - I love scented candles but I'm really fussy when it comes to fragrances. This one is lavender, orange and ylang ylang and it smells gorgeous! It burns for a whopping 45 hours too! 

3. PG Tips tea bag samples (Green Tea x2, Red Berries x2) - I don't usually like samples in a suubscription box but PG Tips are a great brand and I especially love green tea!

4. Balm Balm Rose Geranium Face Balm 30ml (RRP £7) - This balm is said to be a 'multi-tasker' meaning that it smoothes lips, moisturises, tackles dry heels and cracked elbows. I've been using it mainly on my face and feet and I really have seen a difference. It smells gorgeous too!

5. Bio Oil samples - My house is coming down with all sorts of stretch marks lotions and potions and while these are only little samples, they are great to have as I'm going through them like there's no tomorrow. Bio Oil is my favourite stretch mark lotion so far.

6. Eisberg Alcohol-free Riesling Wine 750ml (RRP £2.75) - I'm not a big wine drinker if I'm honest but I did give this a shot and was pleasantly surprised. It didn't have that dry, lingering taste that I expected and it was actually quite fruity. These wines contain less than 0.005% alcohol and only have 34 calories per 125ml glass. 

In addition to these items, I also received a giftcard worth £10 to download a Pregnancy Relaxation CD and the usual four flash cards. This months topics were:

Homemade Chicken Nuggets recipe card, information on how my baby is developing this month and how I may be feeling, what to buy for your baby - part 2 (this is a follow on from last months part 1), and information on yoga during pregnancy.

This months box totals around £32.92 (not including samples) which is fantastic considering that the box only costs £14 to buy! I'm kind of sad that I only have a couple of boxes left - I'm loving Project-B!
