BuffBoxx November 2017 Review
BuffBoxx seems to have stopped sending out an information card, but you usually still get product literature and/or coupons.
Pederson’s Natural Farms Fully Cooked Bacon (0.6 oz) – Retail Value $2.99
As you probably know by now, I’m a vegetarian. My husband really doesn’t do prepackaged meat snacks like this. So I’ll be passing this along to someone at work. This brand is new to me and the animals used to produce the bacon are grown without the use of antibiotics, plus they are not fed animal byproducts. This is actually not very high in protein but it is compliant with a lot of popular diets since it has no added sugar and is minimally processed.
SKLZ Targeted Massage Ball 5” – Retail Value $14.99
I haven’t lifted weights or swung a kettlebell in over a month (doctor’s orders). So I am really out of condition. As soon as I am allowed, I am going to start weight training again, and I KNOW I will have delayed-onset muscle soreness from being sedentary for so long. Anyway, I don’t have a massage ball this size and from product description and photos on the SKLZ website, it seems this will be quite useful for when I get back into weight training (I tested it out on a sore shoulder against a wall and there is promise here). There are also some YouTube videos with more ideas on how to use this.
Greater Than Sports Drink in Orange Mango (11.2 fl oz) – Buy a 12 pack for $29.99
Greater Than Sports Drink in Grape Vine (11.2 fl oz) – Buy a 12-pack for $29.99
This is made from coconut water and is a more natural alternative to sports drinks like Gatorade. I had some of this in the refrigerator after I had surgery recently and I drank it on those days when I was feeling a bit dehydrated. I definitely think it helped. It is not calorie-free, though. I am not a fan of coconut water but the added (natural) flavors here really make it a lot more palatable.
Under Armour Headbands (6 count) – Retail Value $9.99
BuffBoxx used to offer Reebok apparel but they sent an email recently letting subscribers know that they were switching to Under Armour. I don’t mind the change as I have quite a few Reebok tanks and I was eager to try something else. These are thin headbands that do a great job of keeping short, stray hairs out of my face. I like that you get 6 so you can always have a clean one for a workout.
EFlow Enrage Preworkout Formula (4 servings, “Ninja Nerds” flavor) – Buy 30 servings for $39.99
This brand pops up in fitness subscription boxes from time to time. Instead of the standard flavor names, their flavor names are usually related to fruity candy or sweets most of the time. This one has kind of a grape flavor that is not half bad. Don’t try it before bed, though, as it is super high in caffeine – like three cups of coffee worth. It is sweetened with sucralose and acesulfame potassium.
Under Armour Pure Sheers Hipster Underwear (1 pair, black, size S) – Retail Value $12
This is the second Under Armour item for the month. I totally don’t mind getting lower-value apparel if it is different from what I usually receive, and underwear doesn’t show up in fitness boxes all that often. This fits a little weirdly right now but that is because my lower abdomen hasn’t quite readjusted itself around my hysterectomy incision. In time, I think I will find I like these quite a bit.
Promotional Mints - bonus
BuffBoxx always sends one item with their logo plastered on it. These are never meant to round out the value of the box, they’re just fun extras. And the whole time I have been reviewing BuffBoxx, I don’t think they’ve repeated promotional items even once.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $50.30 for the November BuffBoxx. That is right around the cost of the subscription. Most months, this box has a somewhat higher value, so I don’t mind if it *only* breaks even every now and then. Everything except the bacon was useful to me and I am excited to see what kind of workout apparel Under Armour offers in the coming months.
