Bestowed Subscription Box Review & Coupon - June 2014 Card

This month they have gone from a little booklet to a one-sheet in an effort to reduce paper use. The flip side of Heather’s letter includes some of her tips for staying healthy while traveling.

Bestowed Subscription Box Review & Coupon - June 2014 Clean

Clean Well Disinfectant Wipes – Value $1.50

These are definitely a great item for travel, and I try to always keep a few in my purse.

Bestowed Subscription Box Review & Coupon - June 2014 Cleanser

Lucini Italia Premium Select Virgin Olive Oil Sample – Value $1

Better Botanicals Coriander Balancing Cleanser – FULL SIZE Value $16

I can never have enough olive oil, and this one gets great reviews on Amazon, so I’m excited to try it. This cleanser is another win for me – it smells great and is free of parabens and phthalates.

Bestowed Subscription Box Review & Coupon - June 2014 Sunburn

Unburn Sunburn Relief –  2 oz Value $2

Puracyn Wound & Skin Care Solution – 1.8 oz $5

These are good to have in the first aid kit, but hopefully I won’t have to use either of them anytime soon!

Bestowed Subscription Box Review & Coupon - June 2014 Zing

Peeled Snacks AppleClusters – Value $2

Zing Double Nut Brownie Bar – Value $2.50

This Zing Double Nut Brownie Bar is my favorite discovery of the box this month. It’s dairy-free, gluten-free, lower in sugar than similar bars – plus it’s delicious! (Full disclosure – I have to avoid gluten and dairy, so I haven’t had a real brownie in years. If you can eat regular brownies you may not agree with my assessment!).

Bestowed Subscription Box Review & Coupon - June 2014 Quinoa

Party-Tizers Veggie Dippin’ Chips – Value $3

Purely Elizabeth Ancient Grain Oatmeal – Value $6.50

I’m eating these chips as I write this review, and they are really good! The added veggies in the ingredients is a nice touch, but I wouldn’t classify these as a healthy item.

The Ancient Grain Oatmeal is made with quinoa, hemp, flax, chia etc. It sounds super healthy, but it also includes oats, (which I avoid) so I’ll probably pass this along to my mom. (If you are looking for a gluten and oat free oatmeal alternative, I highly recommend these Quinoa Flakes).

Verdict: I paid a little less than $19 for this box (I believe I signed up with a Living Social deal), and received about $40 worth of items. There were less food items than usual in the box, but I’m OK with that this month because everything I’ve sampled so far seems to be high-quality, and I think this is a good summer travel box.

What did you think of the June Bestowed Box?

  1. We just received the June box and are very happy with it! We got the hand wipes, the disinfecting wipes, Hemp Protein mixes, two Raw Food bars, facial moisturizer, baked sour cream and onion chips, roasted soybeans, iced tea packets, a fruit smoothie squeeze pouch, and two wheatgrass boost drinks. I am very happy with this subscription overall… I great variety of natural foods and healthy beauty/cleaning products.

  2. The only thing the same in our box is the wipes. This was our second box and it has a lot of stuff we really don’t prefer: 3 packets of hemp protein powder, 2 wheatgrass boost, 2 spirulina dream raw food bars. There were a few items that may be okay: 2 Almost Nut flame roasted soybeans (dh may eat, I say yuck), 2 Mighty Leaf Iced tea bags (I can’t drink caffeine but dh will probably like.), 1 Smooch liquid fruit snack thing. And there was a small bag of organic chips.

    Is there a way to update or make preferences for this box?

  3. The only thing the same in mine was the peeled clusters snacks and the wipes…I had mainly food (wipes were only nonfood item) but I did email a few few ago, and told them I thought this was a food only box, so maybe I got more food items that way… id rather have the food items, the main reason I got it.

    • Didn’t they recently merge with or buy KLUTCH Club? Because some of those items were definitely KLUTCH items (like the Puracyn).

      Those Peeled snacks are in just about every box this month. I think I got them from both UrthBox and Vegan Cuts. (A problem I have with food boxes in general — repeats. So I canceled Vegan Cuts and stuck with UrthBox since I’ve been getting better values from them and have 5 months left on my subscription, anyway.)

      I don’t get Bestowed any longer (they sent chicken broth one month, which I can’t use and which made up kind of a big part of the box value) but I would probably have been happy with this box.
