My daughter turns ten years old this week and something that has been on my mind a lot recently is preparing my daughter for puberty and menstruation. I’ve been very keen on making her a period kit, specifically something that she can keep with her at school for just in case. After talking to my blogging friend Judy (from Fun Mamma SA) she highly recommended that I contact Luna Angeli, she raved about their period packs to me. I contacted Luna Amgeli and they were open to a trade exchange which of course always makes me happy.

About Luna Angeli
Luna Angeli was launched by Melody Storm after she helped her daughter navigate puberty and menstruation. She strives to help moms and daughters handle the first period easily and in a personal way. Luna Angeli offers beautifully packaged and personalized menstruation starter kits for girls.
Luna Primrose Period Starter Kit
Luna Angeli offers a selection of starter kits and I chose the Luna Primrose for my daughter specifically because it includes a microwave bean bag which I was sure my daughter would love (and I was spot on).
The Luna Primrose kit includes the following items:
- 1 pack of ultra thin disposable pads
- 1 pack of 20 panty liners
- 1 hand sanitizer
- 1 body wash
- 1 hot chocolate & mini marshmallows
- treat pack of sweets
- Luna tote bag
- Luna pad pouch
- microwave bean bag
- 4 intimate wipes
- 2 disposable scented bags
- bespoke information letter
My Impression Of The Period Kit
I unboxed the period kit in one of my live videos and I love how much thought was put into everything right from the get go. Melody knew I would most likely be opening it before my daughter so she made sure to package in such a way that I could repack it all for my daughter without damaging the wrapping. It arrived with her name on it and tied with a pretty blue ribbon.
The first after opening the bag was that is was scented with essential oils, such a beautiful touch! I love the Luna tote bag and pad pouch. The pad pouch is exactly what I envisioned for my daughter to discreetly keep her menstruation essentials in her school bag.
The microwave bean bag is super cute and perfect for what is is needed for.
The period essentials are perfect, giving me everything I need for my daughter’s first period. The hot chocolate, mini marshmallows and sweets are such a lovely touch making it fun and exciting for my daughter.
The personalized information letters are fantastic. One is personally addressed to me as a mother, giving me all the information I need on topics such as endometriosis and different menstrual products (with pros, cons, cost, convenience, hygiene and more), the other letter is personally addressed to my daughter giving her information on all things to do with menstruation including the menstrual cycle, ovulation, period pain, PMS, tips for her first period, sanitary pads, talking to mom and dad, swimming and showering, sleeping out, stains and more!
My Daughter’s Reaction
It’s one thing me being super impressed by the period kit but the real test was giving the package to my daughter to open up. She was so excited when I gave it to her and asked me if it was an early birthday gift and I said no, this has nothing to do with your birthday. This is because you are getting older and will be a woman soon. You need this. She was big time impressed with that.
As I thought her favourite item was the microwave bean bag, she wanted to start using it immediately! She loved all the sweet treats, in particular the hot chocolate and marshmallows (her favourite treat).
When she pulled out the pads and panty liners she looked at me and said “Oh pads….” and carefully placed them aside to check the rest of her goodies which I found quite amusing. She does know a bit about menstruation and pads since we have been having a good number of talks about it recently.
She took out the information letters (beautifully wrapped in ribbons) last and was so happy that one had her name on and she opened it and said “Wow that is a lot of information” and I explained she doesn’t have to read it all now. She is taking an interest in reading about menstruation and what she can expect. She finds it a lot easier to read in privacy and then come ask me questions when she is ready.
My Final Thoughts On The Luna Angeli Period Pack
I am so grateful that Judy referred me to Luna Amgeli for a period pack for my daughter. This is such an important milestone for young girls and I have been looking for a way to make it special for my daughter, not something to be feared or embarrassed about. The Luna Angeli period pack exceeded all my expectations and has been another fantastic parenting tool for me to easily navigate the new territory my daughter and I are now facing.
If you have a preteen daughter I highly recommend that you get the Luna Primrose period pack for your daughter too.
