April 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. Bestowed has also partnered with The Food Trust and for each box sold they supply a kid in need with a days worth of snacks. 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 a discounted price of $10.00

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 10% off any subscription using code LOVEHEALTHY. 

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.

April Bestowed Box.

Contents of box with approximate retail value:

Balance Bar in Dark Chocolate Crunch. Value = $1.07

Bitsy's Brainfood Smart Cookies in Sweet Potato Oatmeal Raisin. Value = $2.49 - These are strangely addicting. 

Coco Libre Pure Organic Coconut Water. Value = $1.99

Dandy Blend Herbal Beverage packet. Value = $0.36

ENLIGHTENED The Good For You Crisp in Wasabi. Value = $1.25

Fuel For Fire Fuel Pack in Triple Berry. Value = $2.99

Snap Infusion SUPERCANDY Tart. Value = $1.99

Zarabee's Naturals Seasonal Relief tablets. Value = $9.99

The total value of this months box is $22.13. I know coconut water is super good for you but it's just so icky. I'm going to try and mix it  in small amounts with other drinks which I'm hoping will help the flavor and I still get the benefits. The Bitsy's cookies were odd tasting at first but then I couldn't stop eating them. The fuel packet looks pretty cool and a quick way to get 10g of protein. The balance bars are always great for a snack. I've been taking a regular allergy medicine and even though they say they are 24 hours pills I find that they wear off towards the end of the day. So what I'm doing is when they start wearing off I take this natural tablet. It seems to be working.

Verdict: This month's box was right on point. It had some great products and a good value.
