September 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 to you. The 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 YUM5. Valid until 10/15. 

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:

Balance Bare Sea Salt Caramel Nut Bar. Value = $1.59

Bitsy's Brainfood Smart Cookies. Value = $1.00 - I thought these were good but they had an odd aftertaste, not bad just odd. 

Justin's Chocolate Nut Butter Squeeze Pack. Value = $0.83

5 pack of Natural Calm. Value = $4.16

Qure Water. Value = $2.59

Super Eats Kale & Chia Chips. Value = $1.18

$40 Hello Fresh Gift Card. Value = $40.00

The total value of this months box is $11.35 not including the gift card. I didn't include that value because not everyone will be able to use it AND it still requires you to spend $29.  I only paid $8 since I'm a blogger but I would be disappointed if I paid full price and couldn't use the Hello Fresh gift card. I'm fortunate though because I can use the gift card and they finally deliver to California. I think I tried to Kale chips in another box and as I recall I didn't mind them so much. 

Verdict: This box had some new items for me to try and since Hello Fresh delivers to California I think I'm going to give it a try.
