WelliBox July 2015

WelliBox is a Canadian box focusing on healthy options.  It sends you 5-10 samples per month and you can choose your category from womens, mens, 50+, or performance.  Boxes are $10 per month, less with longer plans,  and you are promised $25 worth of products.  Since I’m trying to get healthier and lose some weight I thought it would be a good idea to get a box that might help me out.

The box this month felt so light I thought it was empty.  Inside there was stuff but I felt like it was a let down.

Pharmax Relief Trans-Dermal Pain Relief-14X1.5mL $11.85

These are a homeopathic pain reliever cream that you spread onto the affected areas of your body that need help.  There is no strong odor and it is non-greasy.  In the method provided you just bend the sachet and the cream comes out for you to spread.  I can’t seem to find this application method but there are lots of places online selling just the cream.  I will probably let my hubby sue this since he’s older than I am and has more aches and pains.

Lenny & Larry’s All Natural Muscle Brownie in Triple Chocolate-80g $2.99

I cannot even describe how heavy this bar is.  It could be used in self defense if you had enough aim to hit someone with it.  Beyond the denseness….it has 20g of protein, no trans fat and low cholesterol.  They are available in a few flavours and I’m certain I will enjoy it.  I mean really, it’s chocolate.

Garden Of Life Raw Protein in Mangolicious-24g $1.71

I have received a few other flavours of this but never the mango.  I am not a huge fan of protein powder.  I dislike the texture it gives when I throw it into a smoothie.  I can’t really think of any other way I would want to use this.  I know you can add it to pretty much anything but the thought if hiding it in food seems even less appealing.

PUR Gum in Coolmint-9 pack-$1.83

I chew gum all the time and I’m not fussy about kinds or flavours as long as it’s chewy.  I’m glad it’s aspartame free since nothing I’ve read about that lately makes me think it’s good for you.

Vega Sport Electrolyte Hydrator in Berry-3.7g $1.00

I honestly do not do anywhere near the amount of exercise that would require me to need to replace electrolytes.  I DO however enjoy flavoured water.  I’m sure one packet won’t kill me.  This is gluten-free and plant based.

This month has a value of $19.38. This is the first time they have not reached the $25 they say they will include.  It’s normal for there to be one big item and a few bars of supplements as the rest so that is fine but usually the big item is, well, bigger.  I use prices from Well.ca, where I would have get them if I wanted more, since there is nothing included to tell me otherwise. I like that I get to try out a bunch of supplements I mostly have never heard of and it gives me a chance to decide what I might need or should be taking.  I am still cautious with reading the labels since I do still breastfeed my little one and some of these things want you to discuss taking them with your doctor in that situation, but that is to be expected with any new supplements. The last few boxes have been really good and the supplements have long expiry dates making more likely I can finish them before they go bad.
