Let’s take a look at what’s inside the October box!
Wearsafe Clip, Value: $5-$7
RunnerBox included a promo code for a 1-3 month trial of a Wearsafe clip. This clip is designed to help your family and friends see your location if you’re taking a hike or running somewhere that could be dangerous. I think this is a really cool and safe idea – it’s basically the life alert for runners!
Skin Slick, 0.5 fl oz. sample (Buy a 1.5 oz bottle for $8.99)
If you’re a long-distance runner, chafing is a huge problem and really hurts! This product, Skin Slick, is meant to help chafing by adding an invisible layer to prevent friction! I never knew something like this existed but I’m so happy I do now! RunnerBox included a sample in this shipment and a 30% off coupon. I’m definitely taking advantage of this offer!
Nuun Performance Drink Mix, 2 Packets – Estimated Value $4 (buy a box of 12 for $24)
RunnerBox included 2 flavors of an endurance drink mix, which is filled with electrolytes & carbohydrates, and is perfect for any type of intense exercise! I received two flavors in my shipment, Blueberry/Strawberry, and Orange/Mango. Both taste pretty good but I’m leaning towards the Orange/Mango as my favorite. I’m always looking for new exciting drinks and this a great alternative to the Gatorade that I normally drink during and after a workout.
Maple Sunflower Butter, 1.15 oz – Listed Value $1.09
This organic sunflower butter is a perfect treat for after a workout; it’s high in protein and low in sugar, and overall is REALLY tasty! I added some to a piece of whole wheat toast after a run and it did the trick for a simple, yet filling snack. I’ve never heard of the brand, Wild Friends before, but the packaging is pretty cute and the products seem to be top notch in quality and ingredients.
Organic Roasted Oregon Pumpkin Seeds, 2.2 oz – Listed Value $3.99
I was really excited to see the pumpkin seeds in this month’s shipment; I love pumpkin seeds, especially when they’re good for you! These seeds are not only delicious but have 10 G of protein in a serving and are high in omega-3. The flavor I received was Cinamon / Pink Himalayan Sea Sat – yum! If you have the chance to get your hands on these, I highly suggest giving them a try, you won’t regret it!
Oatmega Protein Cookie, 2.8 oz. – Retail Value $2.39
Another win for me in this month’s box – A chocolate chip protein cookie from OatMega! I’ve had a cookie from them before, but not chocolate chip, so this was a nice change to see what else they offer. The cookie is really good and doesn’t taste too protein-y, which is a problem I have with a lot of similar products out there. This cookie is filled with 12 grams of protein, 10 grams of fiber and is gluten free. What more can I ask for?!
Multiforce Alkalizing Multi-Mineral Powder, 7.9 oz – Retail Value $29.99
This daily alkalizing supplement combines minerals, plant calcium, and tissue salts to help your body regulate it’s pH balances and bring a balance of alkalinity and acidity. In lamens terms, this powder is another way to help fight the sniffles and keep your body in “balance”. I’m all about trying to keep my body healthy, so I’m happy that Runnerbox included this mix and am excited fight off sickness. The box recommends you to add 1 TSP to a 6-8 oz cup of water and drink daily – bottoms up!
These deodorizers have a very strong clean scent and will surely do the trick to help keep my gym bag from stinking like it normally does. The scent is very “fresh” but not overpowering, which sometimes gives me a headache. I could also see myself putting these in my running shoes or a gym locker, to help keep my bad man stench away. The packaging states the scent last for 6 months, which is much longer compared to other products I’ve tested before!
Ally’s Bar, 2.12 oz – Listed Value $2.30 (buy a box of 12 for $28)
I’ve never heard of this brand, but from this bar, I definitely want to try other products! This bar is made of mainly sweet potatoes, with hints of pistachios, cashews, and pumpkin seeds – YUM! The bar is very delicious in taste and is packed with healthy ingredients, which we all can appreciate. If you have the chance to try this flavor, you won’t regret it!
Sustainable Supergrain Bar by Regrained, (1 bar) 1.24 oz – Listed Value $1.99 (buy a 12 pack for $24.99)
This bar is not only delicious but the brand, ReGrained, has a very interesting way of making it! ReGrained fights food waste by upcycling “spent” grain from craft breweries and baking into healthy snacks! Not only does this bar help fight waste, it’s extremely delicious; the honey and cinnamon flavors really come through which is perfect for Fall and making me want more!
Verdict: This was my second experience with RunnerBox and I am really impressed with how many products I received, the variety, and the overall quality of every piece! The value received in this month’s box, not including the skin slick sample or the wearsafe coupon is $53.74. For $20 + $6 ground shipping, I say that’s a steal! I would recommend this box to anyone who is looking to broaden his or her workout accessory game and loves a tasty snack!
