So far every DailyGoodieBox has been a ton of fun. This is a free sampling and product review program that sends out boxes of samples and full size product for you to try and then give your thoughts on. I love it because I don’t have to think about anything. The box shows up, I try everything and then hop online and fill out the questions online via their website. Of course, then I write up a post about it telling you what I got and how well this program works for me.
In my opinion, this is the best program I’ve been a part of because I don’t have to do anything to get the samples. Other programs, like PinchMe, make you get up at the crack of dawn and scramble to get samples from a quickly dwindling supply. While that might be a thrill for some folks, that is not for me. DailyGoodieBox is for people who are willing to sign up and wait (or forget they sign up) and then get excited when they see a box show up. That’s me!
Here’s what’s in my box this time around:
Crown Maple Syrup Dark Color- I’ve tried this before in a subscription box. I received a 3 pack. My favorite is this one, the Dark Color. I didn’t like the Golden version, especially compared with the complexity of the darker versions. The website describes it like this: “Aromas of coffee and cocoa beans are present, along with flavors of brown sugar and toasted almond.” I just say it’s delicious.
BiPro – Protein Water Berry Burst- This is fun! I’ve been working on getting more protein into my daily diet and this is an easy way to do it. This is Berry flavored and it tastes like grape which I hate so I gave it to my husband. However they have a Peach flavor, too. Hm. I don’t know if I’m willing to pay $5 for it though.
Black Forest Organic Gummy Bears- Who doesn’t like Black Forest Gummy Bears? These are not as flavorful as I hoped and I don’t appear to have gotten any pineapple ones. I think they’re not quite as chewy as the non organic kind (which I think I prefer just based on texture). But for those looking for an organic alternative, here it is!
VitaBath – Travel Size Body Wash- Oh my gosh, this smells absolutely amazing. It’s Heavenly Coconut Creme scented and it’s making me drool. There might be a fight in the shower over this one since coconut is one of my husbands favorite scents.
Goddess Garden Mineral Removing Cleanser- Sadly, I’m unable to try this because it’s got lavender and I avoid products with witch hazel extract (because of the alcohol).
Tiger Balm Pain Relieving Ointment- I used this on my neck since I basically live with neck tension (especially on my mouse-hand side). It’s a strange product that doesn’t really fix the problem, just distracts your brain from the pain by making it focus on the fact that you just put irritants on your skin. The hoped for result is that because you stop thinking about your pain, you stop catering to it and instead use it as you normally would. I do think there’s a slight benefit from that but mainly I just like the way it smells… Mmmm, cinnamon and clove!
BetterThanCoffee Energy Bars- This seems to be the new thing– caffeine in energy bars. This one is Dark Chocolate Mint and is made with pea protein, brown rice, a bunch of organic sugar and chocolate plus… guarana! It contains 100mg of caffeine. Taste? I’m sorry but it tastes horrible. I’d rather drink coffee. Wow. It has a very strong almost medicinal taste. Blech.
Pure Growth Organic Snack Mix- A tasty snack mix sort of like Gardetto’s but ranch-ish flavored. Bonus for being organic and having no artificial flavors, etc. Tasty! And it’s a nice sized bag perfect for snacking. It has pretzels, breadsticks and those brown bread disks (my favorite part of Gardetto’s).
VERDICT: A lot of fun stuff! I’m a little distracted because I accidentally got Tiger Balm on my chin and it’s driving me nuts. Seriously. Dying. Also, I cannot get rid of that horrible taste from the BetterThanCoffee bar. So bad. Anyway, I’m pretty pleased that this had so many good products in it. I’m happy for everyone who gets to try the Prince of Peace crystals because they’re amazing. As a whole, I think DailyGoodieBox is the best freebie product review program that I know of. I love how low stress it is.
If you would like to get your own box, sign up at www.dailygoodiebox.com and fill out your profile. If you are extra industrious, you can follow them on Facebook and interact on their page for the opportunity to win a free box. I think they do those daily.
