BuffBoxx September 2018 Review
BuffBoxx has stopped providing information cards, possibly because there is some customization based on clothing size, dietary restrictions, etc., but I did receive a sticker!
Sinister Labs Angry Mills Non-Caffeinated Protein Infused Peanut Spread Wicked White Chocolate, 12 oz – Retail Value $12.99 (Found here for $12.34)
Although I would have been eager to try the caffeinated version, this non-caffeinated spread is pretty good! Straight out of the jar, this peanut butter has a great taste, but the texture is gritty. I made energy balls using half regular peanut butter and half Angry Mills Protein spread (to boost protein content), and they turned out great! The white chocolate inclusion added extra sweetness, and the texture didn’t seem to impact how the balls stuck together. I would be interested in trying the caffeinated options for my energy balls, but I don’t know if I can justify spending that much money on peanut butter.
L Carnitine is supposed to help burn up more of your fat stores, and it is also supposed to help with energy and endurance. I have been using it for two days, and I haven’t noticed any differences, but I would be interested in trying it for a longer period of time. This particular supplement has a great fruity taste, and the serving size is only a tablespoon, so the full sized bottle would only last about a month.
Iceshaker 16oz Water Bottle and Shaker – Retail Value $25
This shaker bottle is quality! I’ve gone through a few plastic shaker bottles, and they all tended to disappoint by either leaking, misplacing or breaking of the lid or annoying me with the metal blender making noise in my gym bag. The agitator on this innovative bottle attaches to the lid, and it is removable for easy cleaning; I am more likely to use this feature as a fruit infuser, especially since this bottle will keep your beverage cold up to 24 hours (which I don’t find necessary for a protein shaker). Overall, I really like the metal style and the rubber accents really make it superior to any other shaker I’ve tried.
MET-Rx ThermoFX Metabolic Booster, 10.58oz – Retail Value $28.99
I’ve never tried a metabolic booster before, and I have not had a chance to try this before a workout yet. I usually go to a Zumba class twice a week and power walk with my pooch the remaining days of the week. The ingredients Green Tea Extract, L-Tyrosine and Caffeine Anhydrous are supposed to maximize energy and focus while the amino acids L-Carnitine and CarnoSyn® Beta-alanine support muscle strength and power. I tasted a small scoop and the flavor is actually pretty tasty! I will definitely be trying this before Zumba next time!
Under Armour UA Fly-By Team Shorts – Retail Value $25
These shorts are 100% polyester with a 3-inch inseam, and they are royal blue with white trim and mesh side panels. The shorts I received have a “built-in brief”, which is a luxury I didn’t know existed, but I am here for it. These shorts are so comfortable! They are 100% polyester which makes them perfectly light and great to move in.
Here I am (with Murray ready for a walk!) sporting a French tuck (thank you Queer Eye) showing off my new Under Armour shorts. I like the way they feel on, but it seems like they appear a little bulky in the front, probably from the side pockets and built-in panties. It also could be that I, shout out to Steve Urkel, like to pull my shorts up to my chest. I exaggerate, but due to my long torso, I am more comfortable in shorts that have a high rise fit, and I am not sure these were meant to function as such.
Verdict: This is my first BuffBoxx and first fitness subscription, but I have a really good feeling about it! I love the variety of items received, and the quality of brands and products is awesome! This box is just shy of double the price of what I paid for it (a total value of $93.84). I love when a box is well worth the price, and I feel I definitely got my money’s worth this month.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the October box. There is a lot of customization with Buffboxx, so in a given month, someone else’s box contents might not match mine.
