SweatyBox Women’s Subscription Review + Coupon- February 2017

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

sweatybox-february-2017-envelope

SweatyBox is a monthly subscription box containing beauty and fitness essentials. They also have a men’s box with fitness and grooming items.

sweatybox-february-2017-tissue

This month, the items were in an envelope with tissue paper inside instead of the usual box. Not sure yet whether this is a permanent change or just for the month.

This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

This review is of the Women’s, $10 a month, box.

This box didn’t come with an information card. That seems to be standard for this subscription.

Yuni No-Rinse Body Cleansing Foam (50 mL) – Value $6.33

The directions on this say to towel off sweat and then pump this onto the skin and massage it in, in place of a shower or bath. This did vanish pretty quickly when I tried it out on an arm, and I think the essential oils made me smell a little better (and may have some antibacterial activity), but I just don’t think I could really go without taking a shower. You’re not really cleaning yourself with this if you are rubbing this product into your skin, you’re just covering up the sweat. I suppose it could get you through a day if you work out on your lunch hour, but I exercise at night, at home, so the shower is readily available. Still, even though it’s not something I would use regularly, I think it is totally appropriate as an inclusion in a box like this.

HumanN Beetelite (0.35 oz) – Value $3

All right, so products like this are where an information card would be useful for this box. I assumed this was some kind of superfood supplement so I put it in a smoothie (blended nicely and worked with the overall flavor). But apparently one packet stimulates nitric oxide production, which in turn stimulates the immune system, regulates blood pressure, reduces inflammation, increases endurance and strength, and, well, stimulating nitric oxide production is also how Viagra works. Anyway, I probably should’ve saved this for before a workout but I do feel like I had a lot of energy this morning.

sweatybox-february-2017-polish

NCLA Polish in “Mulholland Maneater” – Value $21

This is actually a really dark purple/eggplant sort of color. It’s the middle of the week so I didn’t have time to paint my nails but this is a definite summer toenail color for me and I already know I love the NCLA formula from receiving it in other subscription boxes. Also, in researching this item, I found out that NCLA has a Zodiac collection of polishes that I really want now. Watching their site for a sale…

sweatybox-february-2017-rope

Wodfitters Ultra Speed Cable Jump Rope – Value $14.99

The length of this is adjustable, which is great (just loosen the screws, adjust, and re-tighten) since I am only 5’5” and these things seem made for much taller people (plus it could be shared among people with different heights). This is one of the thin ropes for speed jumping. I have to use these outside as the ceiling in my exercise room is too low so I just gave it a brief whirl last night when the rain let up for a moment and this is a lot like the other speed ropes I have used. (The thin design and attachment of the handles allow the rope to turn faster than other ropes. There is a video at the link to the product if you’d like to see it in action.)

Verdict: I calculated a value of $45.32 for the February SweatyBox. That is about three times the cost of the box plus shipping, which is honestly quite a good value. I think the folks at SweatyBox are pretty creative about coming up with fitness accessories for a $10 subscription box ($14.95 if you count shipping) and I think they do a good job of keeping the mix of items consistent from month to month. (And for what it’s worth, if they are sending something like foundation or socks, they will contact you to get your shade/size.) At any rate,  I was pretty happy with this month’s SweatyBox.

What did you think of the February SweatyBox?

  1. I see they are doing a quarterly box now?

  2. I ordered this box for the first time after seeing this review. The only item that was the same was the jump rope, but the other items I received were wayyyyy underwhelming. There must be massive variation in this box. I will give one more month.

  3. MSA do you know how to cancel the subscription to this box?, their website isn’t helpful.

    • Wondering if you figured it out?? I can’t even figure out how to sign into my account!

    • I don’t have an account with them so I don’t know how to cancel, but if you poke around on their site, there is some potentially useful information. (It appears they are undergoing some kind of reorganization at the moment.)

      Scroll down to the bottom and you’ll see an “About Us” link (actually, you’ll see two, but I clicked the one on the left). On that page are some URLs related to registering an account and signing in. Because I don’t have an account, I can’t try it to see if it works, but that is the best information I can come up with.

  4. Do you know how to get in touch with the company? I want to try to order the Feb box.

  5. Gee, thanks Ragan. Now I want the NCLA zodiac collection too. 😉

    • So expensive, though. I signed up for their email list. Hoping for a big sale.

      • Oh there’s no way I could afford it. I just want it. 🙂

  6. I didn’t get the yumi, but I got two beet packets. Do they advertise box variability?

    • I don’t think there are supposed to be variations. I wonder if there was a packaging error with yours? You may want to contact them.

    • I received the same thing as you did.

    • Same with me. I used a coupon to pay just for shipping for this box. So I am not concerned.
