I Tried the Famous TikTok Water Bottle. Here’s How it Went.

Every time I open TikTok, I see users raving about the Cirkul water bottle left and right. Since I’m constantly falling short of my recommended water intake and plain H2O doesn’t spark joy in my life, I had to see if the hype around the Cirkul bottle was real. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved it–here’s why.

A flavorful beverage tailored to you

Truth be told, I’ve never been a huge fan of flavored water: no matter how hard I try, I’m always left with little chunks of powder left over and boring flavors to choose from. I personally love anything fruity, and I love tasting that with Cirkul, I get that refreshing fruity flavor without the chunks of fruit floating around in my water.

Cirkul has a filter that screws right in–no aggressive stirring involved! When I saw how many different flavors there are, I was so excited. Want to tap into your fall side? Level up your mornings with Cirkul’s energy-enhanced Pumpkin Spice Iced Coffee. Want to cool down after a particularly rigorous workout? Hydrate with Orange Tangerine, a tart & sweet combo with electrolytes. One of my favorite flavors is Strawberry Watermelon–it tastes like a warm summer day, and it’s seriously delicious. Other flavors like Mixed Berry, Fruit Punch, and Black Cherry are sure to delight the fruit lover in you, too.

Cirkul’s FLVR Lab keeps their rotation of flavors fresh, so you’re never running out of flavors to choose. Every third Thursday, the FLVR Lab launches never-before-sipped flavors that are limited-edition, so make sure to mark your calendar if you want to get in on the action! Past flavors include tasty blends like Cool Melon, Orange Mango, and Honeycrisp Apple.

I also love that Cirkul’s approach to hydration is totally personalized–you can choose your flavor intensity  from 1-10, depending on if you want just a little flavor or a lot. You definitely can’t get that with stir-in powders, that’s for sure! You can even customize your Cirkul bottle with designs or a colorful grip sleeve for some extra flair.

No calories, sugar, or artificial flavors

Though tasty, tons of flavored water powders have added sugars and calories, which is something I’m trying to limit to avoid that afternoon crash. I love that Cirkul’s cartridges are made without calories, sugars, or artificial flavors for drinks you can feel good about all day long. A fringe benefit: you can try as many Cirkul flavors as you like, guilt-free!

Promotes a healthier lifestyle

Cirkul’s flavor cartridges aren’t just fun, they’re formulated with vitamins, electrolytes, and caffeine to support your health journey, not hinder it. Choose the White Cherry FitSip flavor to hydrate after a workout class, or try the Fission Premium Body Fuel cartridge for an extra boost. Alternatively, sip one of the Gateway Tea iced tea flavors for a dose of lazy summertime nostalgia. Whatever you’re after, Cirkul’s water bottle and flavor cartridges provide the boost you need to hit the ground running (and are super yummy, too).

Getting Started

You start your Cirkul journey by selecting the size water bottle you want - prices range from $12-$35, depending on the size and material of bottle you want (plastic or stainless steel). I appreciate that I can get a bottle in a smaller size, so I can help my 4-year-old get her recommended water intake as well. You can also pick from a diverse array of colors (I got the classic blue, but also loved the purple for my daughter).

After selecting your bottle, you select the flavor cartridges you want (you can select as many as you want), and then you're good to go! Flavor cartridges cost $3.75 for a one-time purchase, but you can bundle and subscribe to save more. On a medium setting, one Cirkul cartridge lasts for 6 full 20 oz bottles, so it can keep you going all day long! I used to spend way more than $4 on beverages throughout the day, so this is a steal for me.

Does Cirkul live up to the hype?

Overall, I’m extremely impressed with Cirkul and the quality of the flavors I received. I love the ease of being able to just pop one of the flavor inserts in and take it with me wherever I go! TikTok isn‘t wrong–Cirkul 100% lives up to the hype!
