This box didn’t come with an information card. That seems to be standard for this subscription.
Geri G “Create a Brow” – Value $17.95
I was first introduced to the Geri G brand through SweatyBox. This “Create a Brow” product is described as a “fiber gel with pearl enhancing ‘highlighting’ effect.” The shade is supposed to be universal, with blondes using less, those with light brown hair and brunettes using a bit more, and those with black hair using the most. I pretty much never do my brows, so I have no experience and my first attempt with this product was kind of a disaster, so you are not seeing it here. But that is entirely user error and is not the fault of the product! The color seemed to work for me (I dye my hair black and have fairly dark brows, as well).
Protes in Toasted Coconut (1 oz) – Value $1.75
Protes are pretty common in fitness subscription boxes. The toasted coconut flavor is new to me and I think it works. Mostly there just needs to be *a* flavor because the plain ones are not so delicious. These are vegan and non-GMO, if that is important to you, and they have 15 grams of protein per serving, which is pretty good.
Run Performance Gum (fruit flavor, 2 pieces) – Value $1.87
This has caffeine, taurine, and B-vitamins. What’s cool is this is designed for sublingual (under the tongue) absorption instead of digestion, so it is faster acting. This is sugar-free which is important to me. I do think it gave me energy but to be perfectly open and honest, I also tried a can of sugar free Red Bull from another subscription box right before, so I was kind of wired from that as well. Probably should’ve waited a day. Oh well.
Owl Be Sweatin’ Headband – Value $14
I think this is one of the “thinny” headbands. Anyway, this is adjustable, which is something you don’t often see with headbands from subscription boxes, and I found it useful for keeping my shorter, wispy hairs that aren’t long enough to go into my ponytail out of my face while I was working out.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $35.57 for the November SweatyBox. That is a fairly average value for SweatyBox and is quite a bit above the price of the subscription + shipping. All the items were new to me (though I’ve had Protes before, the flavor was new) and I personally like the mix of beauty and fitness-oriented items, so this month was a win!
