BuffBoxx May 2019 Review

BuffBoxx does not include an itemized list of the content within the box, so it was up to me to decide where to start! This is my second month receiving this box.

Bonus! BuffBoxx Toothpicks

I am not counting this towards the total value of the box, as it seems that each month BuffBoxx sends a little promotional freebie. This month, we received a small case containing around 10 toothpicks, perfect to keep in your gym bag. There is a little lever on the side of the plastic case that helps to push a single pick out, and I do not believe that the case is refillable (but I could be mistaken on this one).

Gymreapers Hip Circle (Size L) – Retail Value $19.99

So, I admit, I had no idea what this was when I opened the box! Since it’s marketed as a hip circle, I thought it was some type of belt – but it is a hip resistance band. The resistance is pretty heavy and enables you to really target the muscles in your legs, hips, or thighs to get the maximum results. Some of the exercises that you can do with this are squats, step ups, trusts, side steps, focused contractions, and glute workouts. I did some side steps to test this product and my thighs were burning in no time!

UA Fly-By Women’s Running Shorts – Retail Value $24.99

I love that these shorts are a loose fit, light-weight, and the moisture-wicking heat gear fabric that I quite enjoy. There are pockets, the sides are vented, and there is a built-in brief for extra coverage. Since I’m short, I like the 3-inch inseam and find it comfortable to run in. These shorts are 100% polyester and machine washes like a dream.

Sinfit Chocolate Chip Protein Cookie – Retail Value $2.75

Sinfit Peanut Butter Protein Cookie – Retail Value $2.75

I love that they included two different flavors to sample. These cookies were fantastic! Each one is 310 calories, with 12g of fat, 35g of carbs, and 20g of protein. I wouldn’t consider these healthy per se, but I would suggest that they would curb your chocolate or sweet craving while giving you a protein boost. The ingredient list leads with a whey protein blend, but be aware that these cookies contain many allergens (milk, soy, almond, and peanuts). I personally preferred the chocolate cookie, but both were good – soft, sweet, and a bit messy!

MET-Rx Whey Protein Cookie Bites (Chocolate Peanut Butter) – Retail Value $2.29

More cookies! Again, I liked that two different flavors were included to sample. These packs were 200 calories each, with 10g of fat, 23g of carbs, and 12g of protein. The focus of these cookies is small batch baked and contain less sugar than other leading protein cookies. Taste-wise these were OK – note quite as good at the Sinfit cookies, but better than other brands that I have tasted. I love that they’re small cookie bites, meaning I can just have one or two to satisfy my craving vs eating a whole cookie. Much better portion control for me! Also, fun to share with a friend!

MET-Rx Meal Replacement (Extreme Chocolate) x 2 servings – Buy 18 servings here for $59.29

This is a full meal replacement! You simply add 1 package to 16-20 oz of cold water or milk and blend. I always like to use almond milk and ice cubes to thicken my protein drinks. There are a ton of good for you ingredients, and you can basically take this any time of the day that you need a boost. Weighing in at 250 calories, 3g of fat, 18g of carbs, and 36g of protein this is a great meal substitute while you’re on the go. As for the taste, I thought it was quite good! I didn’t find it too sweet and was glad that it was aspartame free.

Titan Instant Coffee x 1 serving – Buy 30 servings here for $30.99 (found here for $24.99)

I don’t typically go for instant coffee, and can be a bit of a coffee snob, so my opinion of this drink might not be in line with yours if you’re someone who does enjoy instant coffee. For me, the smell of it put me off immediately – it just didn’t smell like freshly brewed coffee, as a matter of fact, I didn’t think it smelled like coffee at all. It’s made of only 4 ingredients: coffee powder, amino acids, B vitamins, and caffeine. To make it, you simply stir the powder into a glass of hot water. I think to drink it I would definitely have to doctor it up with flavored creamer.

SOM Sleep Zero Zugar x 1 serving – Buy 4 servings for $11.99 (found here for $9.99)

I’m not the best reviewer of sleeping products for 2 reasons: 1) sleeping is my favorite pastime and I have little to no trouble ever catching my ZZZs and 2) melatonin gives me weird dreams so I prefer not to take it. Since this drink includes melatonin, I didn’t drink the whole thing but I did taste it and honestly, it’s just not my cup of tea. It reminded me of Redbull, having the same sweet anise flavor that I associate with the drink.

Verdict: BuffBoxx was a bit of a mixed bag for me again this month. I really love the UA shorts, and think that the hip band is exactly the type of item that I would hope to receive in this box – I’m excited to incorporate it into my workouts now that I know what it is! Personally, I could take or leave the branded products (the toothpicks) and I’m not going to count them towards the value of the box. I felt like we received too many similar snacks this month, and would have liked a bit more variety. As for value, I received 7 unique products (10 total products), and at $49.99 for the subscription that’s like paying 7.14 for each one. I think the value felt OK, not great – I would have liked to see at least 1 other higher priced item to make me really feel the value in this box!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the July box. There is some customization with Buffboxx, so in a given month, someone else’s box contents might not match mine.

COUPON: Use code MSA15 or MSA15LITE to save 15% off your first Pro box (MSA15) or save 15% off your first Lite box (MSA15LITE)!

Value Breakdown: This box costs $49.99 + free shipping, which means that each of the 10 items in the box has an average cost of $4.99.
