June KLUTCHClub/Bestowed Box

I still don't really know how the KLUTCHClub or Bestowed merger works. I received an email from KLUTHClub saying they were acquired by Bestowed Box and nothing would change except the boxes would arrive in Bestowed boxes and emails would come from I went to the KLUTCHClub website and it appears the same and you can still subscribe. I also checked out the Bestowed site and that's the same also. So I guess all that is changed is the boxes will be curated by Heather Bauer of Bestowed and the name on the boxes and billing are different. I wonder if the items in the Bestowed box are different than this?

KLUTHClub monthly subscription service that focuses on health & fitness.  KLUTCHClub ships their boxes out on the 15th of every month. They advertise that the boxes contain over $50 worth of products or services such as snacks, new workouts or body care regimens to try.  I've a had a few months where the value was lower than the $50 promised but still higher than the price of the box. I don't count gift certificates or coupons that require out of pocket money in order to use them. KLUTCHClub offers three types subscriptions, one for women and one for men and now one for moms.  KLUTCHClub allows you to sign up monthly, quarterly or yearly. The monthly price is $18 a month, quarterly is $51.00 or $17 a month and the yearly is $192 or $16 a month.  Shipping is included in all of these prices. I had found a deal back in July of 2013 where I was able to purchase a year for $144 bringing it down to $12 a box.

This subscription is available in the US.

The good:

Healthy: This box is totally dedicated to health and fitness. If you're just starting to get active this is a fun way to try new products or fitness regimens. 

Need a gift: Have a health nut friend or want to encourage someone? Send them a month, 3 month or yearly subscription.

Information: They send a little info sheet on the products included in the box. 

The not so good:

Skip a month: No skipping a month option.

Value: They promise a value of $50 in each box but they don't send that in product. Sometimes they send gift cards and I think they count those towards the value.

June KlutchClub Box

Contents of box with approximate retail value:

Purely Elizabeth Ancient Grain Oatmeal organic cranberry pumpkin seed. Value = $6.99

1 oz. Party-Tizers Veggie Dippin' Chips in Kale Carrot Spinach. Value = $0.90

.63 oz. Peeled Snacks Apple Clusters in berry crunch. Value = $2.19

FULL SIZE Better Botanicals Coriander Balancing Face Cleanser. Value = $14.29

2 oz. Water Jel Unburn Sunburn Relief. Value = $3.47

1.8 oz Puracyn First Choice for Wounds. Value = $5.18

Clean Well All-Natural Hand Sanitizing Wipe. Value = $0.60

(2) Clean Well Disinfectant Wipes. Value = $0.60/ea.

.5 oz. Lucini Olive Oil. Value = $??

The total value of this box is $37.51 plus a little bit for the olive oil. I thought this months box had some good stuff in it, although I'm always disappointed that it doesn't meet the promised $50 value. I've been stockpiling the clean well wipes to use when traveling. The face cleanser looks interesting. I wonder if it really smells like cilantro? I didn't want to open it because I'm not quite ready to use it yet. I am fanatical about us using sunscreen but the teenager, being a teenager doesn't listen all the time so I'll save the sunburn relief for her inevitable sunburn. Now the wound care on the other hand I will keep handy for myself. I am hopeful about the oatmeal but I'm hoping there isn't a lot of sunflower seeds in it because I'm not a huge fan of seeds in my oatmeal. 

Verdict: I'm still a little confused by the merger but I was happy with the box.
