Wellibox September

Just a heads up. This is no longer an active sub box. This is just a review that was sitting finished in my drafts that I am posting.

Wellibox was a monthly subscription box. It’s 14.95$ per month on a month-to-month plan, 13.33$ monthly if you opt for a 6 month plan and 12.50$ monthly for a yearly plan.

welliBOX is the first Canadian discovery box, focused on providing quality health, nutrition and weight loss supplements. Our samples are designed to make you feel confident when making purchasing decisions. Be it at the health food store or online, every sample that we provide is sufficient enough to decide whether that product is right for you!

Each month, you’ll receive a custom box that contains anywhere from 5-10 samples of supplement products. We do our best to include at least 1 full sized product per welliBOX. welliBOX guarantee’s a total box value of at least $25 based on MSRP’s. (source
I signed up for a month to month plan of the for Her box. This was actually the last box, since I received an email shortly after this saying that they’ve sold their company.

Slumberland Snacks Sleep Squares

This month had not one, not two, but THREE boxes of orange chocolate melatonin sleep squares. Which could have been great had it been any other flavor other than orange chocolate.  It will help you fall asleep quickly, sleep through the night with no grogginess.
Value:9.95$ x 3= 29,85$

Trachealth Chia + Coconut

 This is actually a drink blend. It blends the power of chia seeds and coconut into one drink.  It’s a great source of vitamins for athletes. It’s all natural, gluten free, GMO free, vegan and kosher certified.
Value: 1.67$

Lenny and Larry’s Peanut Butter Cookie

This is a protein cookie containing 16g of protein and 6g of fibre.  It’s a vegan cookie with no animal by-products. It had a faint peanut butter taste and actually had peanut bits in it as well.
Value: 2.50$
 2015-09-21 16.30.19

Xyience Xenergy

 This is a frostberry flavored energy drink. I’m not at all sure what a frostberry is, but that’s the flavor. It’s vitamin fortified with all natural colors and flavors.  I still haven’t tried this as I’m a bit leery of energy drinks. That being said, this brand makes a bunch of flavors if that’s your thing.
Value: 1.80$

 2015-09-21 16.31.33

Overall:

Well, since this was the last month, it doesn’t really matter what I think. But, I will say it anyway. This box was sort of awful. Three packages of orange chocolate melatonin? Really?! The value was a lot better, coming in at almost 36$, but most of that was from those awful squares.

Have you tried this out before? What did you think?

Cheers!

 This month was a bit of the same thing, aka not too too much variety. You’ll see what I mean. In this case, I’m actually ok with this since it’s almost time for me to get back on a regular schedule and that includes quick and easy breakfasts.

  • organic ingredients
  • non dairy, no lactose, no fillers, no GMO ingredients
The size packages I received are 73g-83g each, which is a little more than a two scoop serving.
  • The vanilla chai has 290 calories, 26g of protein, 5g of fat, and 7g of fire, It also has 60% of the daily recommended amount of iron, which I think is important.
  • The Au Naturel has 280 calories, 26g of protein, 5g of fat and 6g of fibre. It also has a decent amount of iron and a whopping 670% of the RDA of iodide.
  • The Cocoa Dream has 320 calories, 28g of protein, 6g of fat, and 9g of fibre. It has 70% RDA of iron. It contains real cocoa.

2015-08-17 14.57.53-2

Overall:

I would say that this month had a pretty good value. This is rather inexpensive for a Canadian subscription. I think it’s about 17$ or so after taxes. This month I received a value of 36$, which I am quite happy with. As I mentioned before, it was a little bit repetitive, but I am ok with that in this particular case. I have one month left on my self imposed try out period for a new subscription. I’ve had one bad month and one good month, so September will be the deciding factor for me.

Have you tried this out before? What did you think?

Cheers!

Kristen

Lenny and Larry’s Muscle Brownie

This is a protein bar type product in the form of a brownie. It’s triple chocolate and was surprisingly really tasty. It has 20g of protein, 0g trans fat and is low in cholesterol. As you can probably tell by the picture, I ate first, took a picture later.  I want to try some of Lenny and Larry’s other products, because this was a lot better than other protein snacks I’ve had before.
Value: ~2$
2015-07-08 09.19.56

Garden of Life Raw Protein in Mangolicious

This is a protein supplement made with sprouted rice protein. It has 17g of protein in a 24g serving. It’s vegan, gluten free, dairy free, gmo free and organic. It also had 5 mg of iron (35% of RDA) and has 1 billion CFU Live probiotics per serving. It’s relatively low calorie compared to other powders I’ve seen. It has only 88 calories for one serving (excluding the mix, of course).
Value: ~1.70$
2015-07-08 09.20.50

Pharmax Relief

This is a trans-dermal (through the skin) pain relief cream. It’s for joint pain and is applied as a cream. This box has 14 little packets inside, so it’s very portable. I feel like this is mostly for arthritis, but I suppose it wouldn’t be awful if I managed to hurt myself.
Value: ~11$
2015-07-08 09.20.37-2

Pur Cinnamon Gum

If this were any other flavor, I’d be very excited. But I really hate fake cinnamon. It’s yucky. This gum is sugar free and aspartame free.
Value: 1.69$
2015-07-08 09.20.19-1

Instant Chaga by Four Sigma Foods

This is an immunity boosting supplement. It’s apparently derived from a mushroom and has lots of antioxidants. This little packet contains siberian wild chaga mushroom, siberian ginseng, wild mint and rose hip. You can add it to your tea or coffee, or drink it on it’s own. (I’m a wee bit nervous about trying this.)

Value: 1.75$

Overall:

While I wasn’t entirely wowed by this month, I am giving it another go. With new subscriptions, I try to give it three months before I decide to love it or hate it. This month, I received a value of over 18$. I feel I got my money’s worth, but I am hoping next month is a bit more wow- worthy.

Have you tried this out before? What did you think?

Cheers!
