Premium Gentleman’s Box “The Good Health Edition” Spring 2020 Review
Included in our box was this booklet full of nice color photos that provides information on all of the brands and the products we received. Our theme for this quarter is “Good Health” which is a great way to start out the year. They provided a workout playlist and even some protein-filled snack ideas, too!
Greater Goods Bluetooth Smart Scale – Retail Value $29.95
Our first item didn’t fit inside of our box and came packaged separately. At the top of our box was a great little note about how a portion of the purchase of this Bluetooth Smart Scale goes towards charity. This scale connects via Bluetooth to the Weight Gurus app and keeps track of your goals and weight for you after signing up and filling out a brief profile for free. You can also connect it to your FitBit or Apple health app to really simplify it all! It connected to the app right away for me and recorded my weight…which I will not be sharing here. 😉 They also included a sheet of tattoos for a little extra fun.
Here is a closer look at the scale. It is very sleek looking and after comparing it to our other scale, it appears to be accurate as well. This scale also measures BMI, body fat, muscle mass, and water weight, although I haven’t had a chance to dive into how all of that works just yet! Just a few more specs: the screen is a backlit LCD, the tempered glass holds up to 400 lbs, it takes 4 AAA batteries (which were included), it has an auto-off feature, and the feet are non-slip.
Iffley Road Duffle Bag
The next item is a fitness essential and perfect for storing your gear at home or on the go. This duffle bag is a nice textured gray color that my husband and I both liked with black and silver accents. It comes with two cushion wrapped handles as well as a long, removable carrying strap and has several pockets on the outside. Both the front and back feature a small zipper compartment while the front also has a slightly larger open pocket behind that and the side has a zippered shoe compartment to keep the gym funk away from the rest of your belongings.
Inside there is another zippered pocket on one side and two smaller open pockets on the opposite side. At the opposite end of the shoe compartment, there is a pocket with a stretchy opening perfect for even more organization. This is a really nice bag and great for organizing all of your gym necessities! If you didn’t want to use it as a gym bag, it could easily make a nice travel bag, as well.
Here you can get a sense of scale with my husband holding it.
The Yoga Man(ual) by W&P – Retail Value $20.00
My husband has been having some back issues lately and has been talking about taking up yoga, so this book could not have come at a better time! He was stoked to see this book and I was super impressed with how thorough it was! The first half of the book is all informational starting with an introduction to and history of yoga, common phrases in yoga, the benefits of it, and even a thorough breakdown of the various types of yoga and who they can be used for. They further emphasized this point by highlighting different athletes and “exceptional guys.” There was even a helpful chart to help you figure out which type of yoga would suit you best.
Then to help you get started on your yoga journey they linked some helpful YouTube videos, provided some expert advice on injury prevention and yoga materials such as mats. They answered some questions like “can you drink beer after yoga?” and then got into some yoga poses. They even included a section with some small yoga moves you can practice while traveling on an airplane. The yoga positions included large color photos with key points along with modifications and some ideas about what the position is good for. So thorough!
Soft Landing Cooling Towel
Since yoga can cause you to work up quite a sweat, they included a lightweight cooling towel for you. We actually have one of these already and they work so well! Just add some cold water to it and it stays cool and provides relief when you get overheated. It’s breathable and pretty absorbent making it ideal for the gym. Just throw it in the wash with your gym clothes and it will be ready to use again the next time you need it!
Approach Apparel Weight Resistance Rope
Our house is already cluttered with toys and we don’t have a dedicated gym space so I love simple exercise equipment like this weight resistance rope since it provides a great workout and doesn’t take up much space! It’s also super portable and the little bag they included makes it even more travel-friendly. Each side of this rubber rope has a nice padded foam handle. It would have been nice if they’d included a few exercises for this band in our booklet, but luckily those are easy enough to find online!
(The) Roller Bottle by W&P
This 25-ounce roller bottle is a great two-in-one item! The water bottle itself is a sleek black and stainless steel bottle that is double-walled to keep your drinks cold for 24 hours or hot for 12 with a hole in the lid to easily attach it to a carabiner or clip for travel.
The coolest part is that this outside foam layer (which is removable) acts as a perfect massager or roller for your muscles with its textured surface. It can be used to target your back, glutes, quads, hamstrings, and calves to loosen up your muscles and increase blood flow!
After you get your body active and feeling good, they provided some great basics to carry that aspect of wellness to your skincare routine with this set from Tiege Hanley. These three items came in their own little box which made for a nice, sleek presentation. They even included a little card with usage amounts and routine ideas for you along with a 10% off coupon. It looks like their uncomplicated skincare is sold in sets, so I was unable to get any retail values on these.
Tiege Hanley Wash, 2.5 oz
First up we have their daily face wash which can reduce inflammation and redness while not over-drying your skin. It has a very light eucalyptus scent and my husband thought it made his skin feel really clean!
Tiege Hanley Lip Balm, 0.15 oz.
This moisturizing lip balm has SPF 30 and contains rice bran wax and jojoba oil for hydration. It has a little bit of peppermint and tangerine oil in it which made it feel just a tad minty and refreshing and it gave my dry lips a bit of relief when I used it.
Tiege Hanley AM, 0.75 oz
This facial moisturizer has SPF 20 and is also anti-aging. It says it hydrates without leaving an oily or greasy feeling behind and my husband was happy with this one as well. I thought it definitely made his skin softer, and while he tends to have oilier skin, I felt like it actually balanced his skin out a bit! This one had a very faint rosemary scent to it that was nice.
Verdict: The curation of this “Fitness” Spring edition of the Premium Gentleman’s Box was so thoughtful! I love that it wasn’t just “here’s your fitness gear, now go work out,” but instead they provided a method (the book), tools to help us throughout our workouts (gym bag, towel, water bottle, exercise band), and even went further by providing some skincare items as well as a playlist and some snack ideas in our booklet. They really addressed every aspect of working out and getting healthier with useful items. I thought the inclusion of the Bluetooth scale was so unique and it made for a fun techy item that you definitely won’t see in just any subscription box! Overall, I’d say this was a great theme and perfect for my husband who is working to stay active – it also helps provide some motivation during this time when we’re all stuck indoors for the foreseeable future! I wasn’t able to locate a lot of the retail values, but with 7 items (counting the skincare as one) in this $100 (with free shipping) box, that gives each item an average value of $14.28, which seems fair considering both the yoga book and scale both retail for more than that!
