Klutch Box Best of Box October 2013 Review

17 Oct

This is my second, and last, Klutchbox.

In case you don’t know, Klutchbox is  a subscription box service which sends a curated box of 9-12 exceptional health and wellness products direct to your door every month.  They come in 3 subscription types- Womens, Mens, and Moms, and f you wanna try it out you get whats called “best of box.”

Don’t get me wrong, this box is awesome, I guess I’m just not as into trying out health products as I originally thought but this box was my first subscription and it will always hold a special place in my heart!

Anyway- here is what I got:

1

Nature’s Bakery $1.60? Yum!  Blueberry and fig- intriguing. All natural, kosher, and cholesterol free. My sister immediately stole this because it’s one of the few bars that doesn’t use a million weight watcher points and after a taste test she inquired about what a box of these would cost.They also come in a ton of yummy flavors. Did I actually just discover something I would buy on my own in one of my subscription boxes?!?! They are sold on Amazon and the prices vary.

CrunchMaster Multi-Grain Crackers: $1 each These were in my last Klutchbox as well.  They are pretty good- I bring them to work with hummus. They also come in a variety of delicious sounding flavors.

  • Saturated Fat Free
  • Certified Gluten Free
  • Cholesterol Free
  • Ton of whole grain

The bag size was pretty small, but I think it’s meant to be “sample size.” The site sells them at 4.7 ounces.  I doubt I’ll buy again for the price, but I didn’t mind sampling them twice.

Annie Chun’s Seaweed snacks: .25 I grew up in a very Korean area so I’ve had a ton of experience with dried seaweed snacks, although I could definitely see this being a very different snack to someone who is not use to it.  It’s a great alternative to snacking on chips, or even roasted Kale if you want to switch things up.  Salty is definitely my weakness, not sweet, so I’m excited to see if Annie Chunn can fulfill the cravings.. If ever there is a next time, I’d like to try out one of her more unique flavors.  The standard size for each pack is .35 oz.

Celcius Calorie reducing energy drink $1.50 I’m not much of a believer in the whole idea of intaking negative calories- I feel like it’s the easy way out.  However I do love me my energy drinks.  I might make a diet cocktail although it’s described as a ppre-exercise supplement drink powered by the unique MetaPlus formula containing good-for-you ingredients, such as Green Tea with EGCG, Ginger, Calcium, Chromium, B Vitamins and Vitamin C, all of which work together to raise metabolism, resulting in a sustained calorie burn while keeping you energized.  It has a TON of caffeine, more than Redbull, and no weird aftertaste and the best part is it’s reasonably priced!  I probably will not be trying another flavor only because I don’t want to get hooked.

100% pure organic nourishing body creamsample size Awesome product. It’s thick, has an awesome long-lasting scent (but not too heavy) and moisturizes really well.

  • 100% natural, 100% vegan, gluten free
  • immediately hydrates, softens, and feeds skin with nutrients
  • concentrated with antioxidants, vitamins, skin softening fruit oils and moisturizing cocoa and avocado butters

Happy Squeeze- $1.75 each These came in my last box too, but different flavors.  I’m happy to see them again. SERVE COLD. I am not the biggest fruit lover so I won’t be buying them on my own, but if I were anything but a water drinker I would be interested.

After checking out the site, I see they have yogurt.  What a healthy and organic alternative to Go-gurt.  They’ve caught my interest!

Shower-Pill body wipe$1.50 I get so many “body wipes” in my boxes and they go straight into my travel bag.  I don’t know hy- I probably shower more when traveling than I do normally.  I’m really not interested in them but they could be useful in an emergency but this product does seem on the pricy end, don’t you think? Must be high-end!

  • Proven to kill germs1 yet safe on sensitive skin and infused with moisturizing Aloe Vera and Vitamin E
  • Quick dry solution, does not require rinsing or extra dry time
  • Light fresh scent is not overpowering or “perfume-like”

Natural Calm $9.25 OK, so I have no interest. I probably should since I’m pretty aware of my calcium intake, but I didn’t even know magnesium existed until I googled this product. “Calcium excites nerves, while magnesium calms them down. Calcium makes muscles contract. Magnesium is necessary for muscles to relax. Calcium is needed for blood clotting, but magnesium keeps the blood flowing freely.”  All in all, I could always use some anti-axiety help and this sample is very generously sized.

Juice Beauty moisturizer15 ml $7 A different product, but I did see this brand in my last Klutchbox.  I use an acne cream (which dry your skin) so I never have enough moisturizer.  And I obviously love that this is oil-free- works great on blemish prone skin!  Klutch, you nailed me on this one. This is a great introduction to the world of organic skin products but wayy out of my budget.  Although I tossed it into my travel bag- I look forward to using it in a few weeks in Cancun 😀

YogaVibes $60 I received this in my last Klutchbox as well but I’m really not that into yoga- especially online yoga.  I’m a little too slow for that.  I gave away this voucher as a bonus gift with a lifestyle product I sold on eBay.  Maybe that lucky lady had better use of it than I do.

This was a pretty good haul!  Klutch does a wonderful job of introducing me to products just as it promises to do.  My only complaint with this box was that it lacked a description card and coupons to anything but Happy Squeeze- I can’t remember my last box but I’m pretty sure I got all that.  Must be a fluke in the batch.

The total value came to $84, and even without the voucher it was well over the subscription price of $18 a month (less with longer commitment.) Do you have experience or are you interested in Kutchbox?  Let’s talk about it!
