WhistleDrop is a monthly care package of hygiene supplies and other items and is perfect for a college student or your young adult who has recently left the nest. I’m thinking a new military recruit would enjoy this box too. There are three different options to choose from: Guys Standard ($29.99), Girls Standard ($29.99), or Girls Premium, which I am reviewing today ($39.99).
Once a month, you’ll receive a special collection of brand name hygiene products, plus bonus items, delivered right to your doorstep (or dorm room). While you’ll always have the essentials you need, no two months are the same because we source new and different products to keep each shipment fresh.
This bright yellow box was packed full of everyday essentials, plus I found some special extras that are perfect for pampering.
DEAL: Get 25% off your first box and a free WhistleDrop Water Bottle! Use coupon code HELLO25. Valid for new customers only.
There are three boxes to choose from so you can pick the box that’s right for your special someone.
I think I hit the jackpot! I was FaceTiming with my daughter, a sophomore away at college, and she kept ohhing and ahhing while I showed her what was in the box. I packed everything back into the box and delivered it to her apartment on a recent visit.
Don’t tell anyone but I kept Catwalk by TIGI Your Highness Shampoo ($10.94) and Conditioner ($9.30) for myself! I have super fine hair and this stuff lathered really well, which I need, although it is sulfate free and color safe. The conditioner didn’t weigh down my hair and they both smelled great so I am pretty happy with these items!
Gemma fell in love with laundry pods last year, her first time doing laundry away from home, and appreciated the Gain Original ($2.99) and Gain Flings (57¢). The small bottle is good for at least 6 loads, while the pods are 3-in-1 so they clean, fight stains, and leave behind a Febreezy scent.
Venezia Soapworks Pure Vegetable Soap in Lemon Verbena ($5.93) smells lemon fresh and is HUGE, so it should last a while.
Secret Solid in Powder Fresh ($3.90) is one of those items that needs to be kept on standby – you do NOT want to run out of deodorant, especially when you are stressed by schoolwork and tests. Pure-Aid Cotton Swabs ($1.61) are handy to have around for clearing up eyeliner misses and other detailed work.
I spent a lot of money on braces for my kids so this will help
keep my investment safe my daughter clean her teeth! Colgate Extra Clean Toothbrush (94¢), Crest 3D White in Radiant Mint ($2.47), and Oral-B Complete Floss Picks in Icy Mint ($5.45).
There were several Korean beauty products in this box, which was unexpected but a nice surprise! Bluna Makeup Cleansing Towelettes in Pomegranate (I linked to the cucumber ones, $6.99) are perfect for removing that first layer of makeup or dirt before using a regular cleanser, plus it helps keep washcloths from getting makeup stains.
There were three disposable razors, similar to the ones I linked to here ($2.03).
[Editor’s note – I doubt I’ve ever seen such a high end product as the Goldfaden MD in a college student box! Wow!]
There were two packages of Nu-Pore Revitalizing Gel Eye Patches ($2.49) from Korea. They have hyaluronic acid and aloe to soothe tired eyes.
Two more packs of Nu-Pore Moisturizing Eye Masks ($2.49), with honeysuckle and grapefruit extracts, were in the box.
Finally, there were 2 Epielle Facial Essence Activated Charcoal Masks ($1.50). These are supposed to minimize pores and clarify all skin types.
Well, this box sure did deliver a lot of items, both necessities and pampering products! I felt good knowing that my daughter was well stocked for the month and could spend her money on more important things, like Starbucks and Chick-Fil-A. I didn’t have to spend a ton of time going around looking for items to stick in a box, or travel to the post office to mail it off. The assortment of items was nice and varied from dollar store items to salon hair care, but most of it was brand name products that can be found at places like Target or Wal-Mart. This box had a value of around $71.61, which is more than $30 over the price paid for the box!
