I am sorry to say but they are not to recieve, she is able to buy at the NEX. here are a few sites to read. I hope this helps you Ma'am.
I'm a male, lol.
May I at least send the chapstick and lotion as a "make-up bag" 3-4 weeks before PIR?
I just got a letter today and my daughter asked to send her cough drops since she is sick and won't be able to shop for a while. I was going to overnight some tomorrow. Is this okay? Will she get into trouble?
Thanks for any help
Cough drops are NOT allowed!
DANG!!! Well she is getting a bunch of cough drops in the mail tomorrow. I figured since she asked for them that she maybe had run that by someone...oops. She did say that they would not be allowed to shop for a while that is why she asked for us to send them.. Hopefully they will give her a break.. Not only has she been sick since she got there but had to have her wisdom teeth taken out this week. She wont go to medical because she doesnt want to get delayed. I pray they dont go too hard on her..
It is sad to say that they are not allowed anything sent but yes if they get permission makeup will be able to be sent prior to PIR.
Makeup may be sent to female recruits. They can have a basic foundation, mascara, low key blush, and a neutral lipstick. It can be worn for formal pictures and at PIR.
I sent all of these items to her and she was allowed to keep it along with a bunch of make up.
I also got to sneak in 6 strips of strawberry sourbelts wrapped in wax paper wrapped in a short letter in an envelope with 2 stamps. I don’t advise to do this though, she could’ve gotten caught. She got to eat it on Halloween day! She was really happy.
Just wanted to let you know that I sent my daughter 6 bags of cough drops and she was able to keep them without any difficulty but it was pre authorized my her RDC.
