Who doesn’t like getting parcels in the post? Project B is a lovely monthly subscription box to take you through your pregnancy from month three until the birth of your baby. Each box is designed to see you through the relevant month of your pregnancy with items to help you keep healthy and prepare for the new arrival! All the items are specially selected and are from well known or up and coming brands so you can be sure of a good quality box with contents that exceed the price. Having only previously subscribed to beauty boxes in the past I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect when my first box arrived, as I didn’t want to spoil the surprise by looking at the Project B Website. I was very happy with the contents for this box, which is for the ‘Blossom’ month, weeks 16-19 of pregnancy.
In the ‘Blossom’ box I received:
- yu! fruit chews
- D’Drops – Liquid Viatmin D
- Quinola Mothergrain
- Bloom Bump & Baby – stretch mark oil
- Ginerva Green Tea BB Cream
- Super Drinks for Pregnancy recipe book
- Weleda – Oat replenishing haircare
- A set of advice cards, and a holder for our baby scan at 20 weeks.
My favourite item by far is the recipe book for pregnancy drinks. There are so many delicious sounding recipes for drinks and soups in there, and of course I will still be able to make them when i’m not pregnant. The couple of recipes I’ve tried so far have gone down well with my one year old too, so definitely a book to hold on to!
My second favourite item is the Bloom Bump & Baby stretch mark oil. Not only does it smell divine (the sort of upmarket smell you get when you go for a massage, I think it’s the Neroli) but it doesn’t leave too much of an oily residue behind either, although I do tend to use it before I go to sleep, as the lavender is nice and calming.
There is actually nothing in the box that I wouldn’t use or didn’t like the look of, which was a big surprise as it’s always hard to people everybody! I’m looking forward to using the Quinoa in a slow cooker recipe soon, and will be taking the smaller beauty products away with me at Christmas when we visit family. You also get emails from Project B throughout the month with helpful info relating to your stage of pregnancy too, which is a lovely touch.

I am lucky enough to be reviewing a Project B box each month for the rest of my pregnancy in order to give an honest review.
