This box didn’t come with an information card. That seems to be standard for this subscription.
Yuni Rejuvenating Hand Crème (1 fl oz) – Value $8
I was familiar with this brand from receiving their shower sheets in other subscription boxes. They actually have a pretty extensive product line. This hand cream absorbed nicely without leaving my hands greasy. It was lightly scented (Nyx kept following me around, sniffing where my hands had been…) and non-irritating.
Youth Lab Oxygen Moisture Cream (0.67 fl oz) – Value $10.44
This product is supposed to help moisturize you for up to 24 hours. I am not really sure how you assess that, as I wash my face several times a day. It includes some antioxidants and vitamin B5 and was lightly fragranced. It is free of parabens but does contain some silicones and also beeswax, so it is not vegan. I do think it absorbed well and it did not irritate my skin. I appreciate that we got a large enough sample for multiple uses, too.
Protes Protein Chips in Zesty Nacho (1 oz) – Value $1.75
I’ve been seeing these in a lot of subscription boxes lately. (They used to be called Protings.) They have a pea protein base that is not my favorite, but the zesty nacho flavor (which is vegan) definitely helps. One serving has 15 grams of protein, which is great, especially if you are tired of protein bars and want something a little different.
Manduka Equa Yoga Hand Towel (16 x 26.5 inches) – Value $16
I couldn’t find this exact color on the Manduka site, but all their hand towels seem to be priced the same. I don’t sweat during yoga because I don’t do hot yoga (I’m more of a fan of room temperature kundalini yoga) but I do love microfiber towels and this will be great for drying my hands during kettlebell workouts so I don’t fling the kettlebell into the TV.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $36.19 for the October SweatyBox. I think that’s wonderful for a box that costs about $13 (including shipping). It is also a fairly typical value for this box, although I note that this month, the fitness item has a bit more value than other months. You should always expect one or two beauty items, a snack, and a fitness item in this box – that seems like a common theme now that I’ve been reviewing it for awhile. I think this is a great little inexpensive box if you like both fitness and beauty items (I do!).
