BuffBoxx June 2019 Review
BuffBoxx does not include an itemized list of the content within the box, so let’s dig right in!
Bonus! BuffBoxx Foam Stress Ball
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, I received a tennis ball-sized foam stress ball.
Under Armour UA Tech Women’s Tank Top, Size XL – Retail Value $24.99
This is the perfect tank for summer workouts! I prefer the loose-fitting UA tops, and the UA Tech fabric is quick-drying, soft, and has sweat-wicking properties. It’s 100% polyester and is machine washable – a must for workout gear! This extremely lightweight tank has a racer-style back and an almost sheer quality to it.
Cloud10 Marshmallow Crispy Treats in Chocolate Coconut and Double Chocolate – Buy a box of 10 for $25.99
I received 2 of these crispy treats and enjoyed them both! Each treat contains 15g of protein and is satisfyingly large (a single package contains 2 servings – so beware when you’re factoring in your carb and calorie consumption for the day). They would remind you of a rice crispy treat combined with cocoa powder and coconut. Delish! I loved the soft texture but at 40g of carbs per pack, they are a “splurge” food and not something I would eat every day!
SkinnyStix Water Enhancer (3 sticks) – Buy a box of 30 for $29.99
I make a focused effort to drink plenty of water throughout the workday, and one of the ways that I find success is by using water enhancers. These supplements claim to help you burn fat, increase energy, heighten focus, and boost your mood. They claim to help with appetite control and stamina as well.
This sample package included one each of tangy tangerine, berry fusion, and electric lime. Lime flavored anything entices me, and this was not a disappointment. I enjoyed all three flavors – surprisingly, the tangerine ended up being my favorite. It smelled and tasted just like Tang, a drink I used to indulge in often at my Grandma’s house!
PERFORMA PerfectShaker Classic (20 oz) in Clear / Green – Retail Value $9.29
I often do a meal shake for lunch, but since I work from home I typically use a blender to make sure it’s perfectly smooth. I have a few shaker bottles, but none of them are as slick as this one. This one has a 20 oz capacity and is lightweight. I love that the shaker mechanism is attached to the lid, meaning fewer pieces to misplace! There are ample markings down the side of the bottle, enabling you to mix, pour, and store all in one place.
PERFORMA FitGO Black on Black – Retail Value $11.99
This is a pretty genius neoprene insulated shaker cup holder. It’s water-resistant, meaning your shaker cup moisture will stay on the inside, all while keeping your drink cooler for longer with its insulation. There is a carrying clip, finger loop, and an EZ VIEW cell phone storage pocket. An additional secure storage pocket is the perfect size to hold a credit card, ID, or some cash.
Tipson Turmeric Vanilla & Cinnamon Tea (25 bags) – Retail Value $6.99
I drink a ton of tea (another way I ensure enough water is consumed during my day) and I’m always game for a new variety, especially a caffeine-free one. Turmeric is said to have anti-inflammatory and pro-digestive properties and is also found to help with weight loss. The cinnamon and vanilla give this herbal tea a savory and soothing quality. Plus, it smells fantastic.
Lenny & Larry’s Crunchy Cookies in Cinnamon Sugar and Double Chocolate – Buy a box of 12 for $14.99
The final item included in the box this month is crunchy mini-cookies. They contain 6g of protein per package and each bag has about 19g carbs and 170 calories, so to me, they seem a bit more like a cookie treat than a health or fitness item. I thought they were OK, but to be honest, I’d rather just eat a cookie and not disguise it as something healthy. Everything in moderation, right?
Verdict: BuffBoxx was just OK for me this month. As always, I am pleased with the UA item, and I know I’ll get a lot of use out of the tank. Other than the tank, the only other items of value were the shaker bottle and sleeve, and while they’re of good quality I found it odd that they didn’t include a shake to mix in it. I guess you could use the bottle for the water enhancer, but that seems like overkill for that type of powder – I usually just shake in any old water bottle and don’t specifically need the metal mixer component that is more helpful for thicker protein shakes. I thought the snacks themselves tasted OK but weren’t ones that I deem particularly healthful.
As for value, I received 7 items and at $49.99 for the subscription that’s like paying $7.14 for each one. I think the value felt a bit low, I would have liked at least 1 other quality item in this box for that price point.
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: At $49.99 for the subscription I received 7 items. Split evenly, that’s like paying $7.14 per item.
