Secret of the Month

Traveling while having a period? No problem! I’ve decided to tell you a secret. This month I received a special box. It came from the first period subscription box from Korea shipping worldwide.

Secret Of the Month (SOM box) will give you a “Korean-style” experience every month. The box contains high quality Korean sanitary pads which will pamper you during your period.

It has three kinds:

  1. Guierang Oriental Herb scented sanitary pad
  2. Organic Bon 100% Organic Cotton sanitary pad
  3. Lilian Fluffy Baby Powder scented sanitary pad

They are offered in 6 different sets to cater the different flows: light, moderate, or heavy. It’s customized based on your preference. This period subscription box will save you from all the hassle of buying emergency sanitary pads. It will arrive on your doorstep every month.

On top of that, they also provide “secret” gifts from Korea and a complimentary sanitary pad pouch and heat patch. (I got a pair of earrings, a pair of socks, two hair rubbers, and a post card from Korea!) 

Check out the unboxing in my Facebook Page.


Travel bloggers rarely talk about their personal hygiene in their write ups. I often see wet tissues and hand sanitizer in their things to bring. I rarely see them talk about sanitary pads. This is essential to female travelers. We must keep ourselves healthy and maintain a proper hygiene.

Honestly, it’s my first time to hear about a period subscription box. I was thrilled to use it myself. As you can see, everything written in my blog posts are based on my experience. I only recommend a place, a food, or anything unless I try it.

This week, I tried using the Guierang Oriental Herb scented sanitary pad. I must say that I’m having an amazing experience so far. There are some things that I like about it:

  • Their medium size pad is longer than my usual pad. I don’t get any stains.
  • The sanitary pad smells like tea. I can’t even smell the blood. LOL.
  • The pouch really helped me conceal the sanitary pads. I can just leave it in my table.
  • The heat patch will really be your best friend when you’re having dysmenorrhea.

  3. That’s a good find, Karla. Their FB page/messages might be filled up with inquiries and requests for subscriptions now because of this post:-)

  4. This “of the month” package is so fun! I’ve seen so many subscriptions like this, but had never seen one for menstruation. It may be uncomfortable to blog about for most bloggers, but us ladies appreciate your contribution to those travelers among us!

  5. It’s my first time to hear about a period subscription box as well. I wonder how long they’ll stay in business though. More and more women I speak with are going the way of the silicon cup now, which is what I use, and you don’t have to keep getting them. Reusable and eco-friendly because of that. The idea of the subscription box is fun though, isn’t it?

  6. LOL I’ve always been a fan of subscription boxes and find it hilarious that they even have something like this on the market! While I’ve been using pads my whole life, I’m put off by the waste they contribute to the environment so I think I’m gonna convert to something a little less wasteful.

  7. Travelers always rave about the diva cup. It hurts, tbh! I’m not a fan of pads. Someone should create a Canadian box with tampons LOL! I’d buy that!

    Completely agree that travellers rarely talk about personal hygiene even though it’s so important. Never heard of an SOM box before, what a great idea! it looks so cute too.

  9. While this post had me thinking: “TMI!” I learned a new word – dysmenorrhea. Honey, I’m in for the night, I’ve got dysmenorrhea. I bet fellas will be surprised to hear this 😛

  10. Interesting that you can get monthly packages. I wonder if SOM review their clients’ individual needs before deciding what to send and when. For example, some women have their lady time for only four days, while others for seven. Also, flow severity varies, and also comfort and preference of shape.

  11. aww hope we can order here in PHL. possible po ba Ms. karla here in philippine we can order the Guierang Oriental Herb scented sanitary pad? thanks 🙂

    1. Yes, it’s possible! They also ship in Philippines. 🙂
