The Bianca Jade MizzFit Quarterly Subscription is a quarterly fitness subscription box. If you are looking for a high-value and well-curated fitness box – this is my number one suggestion. Bianca has a great understanding of what types of products are both fun to receive and also motivate you and help you hit your fitness goals.

Each Quarterly box comes with a letter from the curator detailing the items included and why they selected them. The theme for this month is: “2015 is your time to change things up, make a difference in your life and hopefully find new ways to sweat.”
Fitbook – Value $22.95
This is a 12-week fitness and nutrition journal/planner. This was the spoiler item I was most excited about, and I can’t wait to start using it. Here is a little more on what’s included:
And a look inside at some of the pages:
There’s something about putting pen to paper that makes things a little more real/important/etc., and I’m hopeful this will be a great tool for a more healthier 2015 for me!
MizzFit for Pointe Studio Grippy Sock Set – Value $20
I love these socks! (Bianca designed them for Pointe Studio Barre).
The size sent in the box are S/M (5-7). (At least that’s what I received). I’m a size 9, so I would have preferred that they sent the M/L size (8-10), but I tried these on and they still fit pretty well. As long as they don’t shrink too much in the laundry they should be good!
Eyeko Sport Waterproof Mascara – Value $24
I like the original Eyeko mascara formula, so I was excited to try this one. It provides good lash separation, and pretty good length and volume as well. Unfortunately I found the formula to be a little irritating to my eyes, so I don’t think it is a winner for me. (After realizing it was irritating my eyes, I tried to remove it with my regular makeup remover wipes, and had zero success – this is definitely a 100% waterproof, smudgeproof mascara – just a heads up when it is time to remove it!)
I think this cleanser will be a great fit for me though. I tried it out on my hand, and the exfoliation is gentle, and I like the natural strawberry scent.
Booya Fitness 1 Month Membership – Value $9.99
Lucy Active Coupon Code for 15% off
Snap Infusion SuperCandy Caramels – Value $1.50
Even though Booya Fitness offers a free one month trial, I’m including the value of this one-month membership in the review, since using the offer from Bianca you don’t have to enter your credit card information to get the free month – I think that is always valuable!
Bianca mentioned in her letter that the Lucy coupon works even on sale items – but I checked and it does not. (The coupon card itself says “15% off single purchase of regular-price lucy brand merchandise.”)
These candies don’t seem very healthy to me, but I’ve received gluten and dairy free jelly beans from the brand in another box before, and can confirm they are tasty!
Before I get to the verdict there’s one thing about this box I feel like I should mention. Bianca shared spoilers with us in this post, and then responded to some of the comments with this comment:
Based on that comment, I assumed that there would be at least one more significant item in the box, and based on one of Bianca’s twitter comments, it looks like that was the case – one product pulled out at the last minute. (She said she was devastated),
As a former Quarterly curator, I sympathize with this kind of issue. As a subscriber though, I would expect her to update this comment to let us know that things had changed. (Especially now that Quarterly no longer accepts returns). So I’m a little torn on this box, but I think for me it is a case of setting an expectation that wasn’t necessary – I was perfectly happy with the box spoilers assuming they were the complete box!
Verdict: The expectations issues aside, I think this is a well-curated box. With the exception of the mascara, I will use everything, and I’m SO excited about the FitBook – it’s perfect for a 2015-start box. I also really enjoy reading Bianca’s letters in each box – I always find them so inspiring.
