August Bestowed Box

Bestowed was created by nutritionist and author Heather Bauer in an effort to answer the question everyone had when it comes to health food.."which one of these is really the best?" Each month, Heather and her team of health and diet experts carefully curate 7-10 healthy snacks, beverages and lifestyle item and send them o you.bThe price of this box is $20.00 a month with shipping included. They also have 3 and 6 month plans that offer a 10-15% discount.

Bestowed offered this box to me for review for the cost of shipping ($7.95).

Price: $20 a month w/no option to skip. Discounts for 3 and 6 months prepaid plans. 

This subscription is only available in the US and ships from New York. 

Bestowed is offering $5.00 any subscription to my using BST5. Valid until 9/15. 

The good:

Variety: I liked that there was some variety to this box. It wasn't just limited to food or products, you get both!

Good size samples: The samples are full size or close to it.

Information: They include a sheet with product info and tips on usage.

The not so good:

Skip a month: I didn't see an option to skip a month.

August Bestowed Box

Contents of box with approximate retail value:

Funley's Super Crackers in Cornbread n' Stuff. Value = $0.65

Funley's Super Crackers in Cheddar n' Stuff. Value = $0.65

Good Greens Bar in Chocolate Mint. Value = $2.49 - oh my gosh! No joke this is fantastic! I would totally buy and eat this again. I'm impressed!

1 oz. Ocean's Halo Seaweed Chips in hot & spicy. Value = $1.79

8 oz. Orgain Healthy Kids Chocolate Shake. Value = $2.29 - says it's for kids but I like them. 200 calories and taste great. 

Plum Organics Mashup in Berry. Value = $1.00

Peeled Snacks Apple Clusters. Value = $1.25

2 oz. Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Dish Soap. Value = $0.50 - these soaps smell so good!

2 oz. Water Jel Unburn. Value = $4.99

Coupon for free Maia Yogurt. Value = up to $1.99

Coupon for free Suja Juice. Value = up to $9.05

The total value of this months box is $26.65. The value is great provided I can find the yogurt and Suja juice. These may be items that aren't available at conventional grocery stores. I love the way the Mrs. Meyers soap smells and it works well also. It's something I would definitely buy again. I liked the seaweed chips which I've also received in another box but they weren't spicy. I'm not a super spicy fan so I hope these don't set my mouth on fire. I hope I can find the yogurt and the juice in one of the stores I shop at. I just have to know what makes Suja a $9 juice drink. I'm really curious about the cornbread crackers. I love cornbread, I mean really love it. I could live off of cornbread. I'm really hoping those crackers don't let me down. 

Verdict: I think this box has some fun stuff to try and even though the value is lower than the price paid I think it's still a good deal.
