Daily Goodie Box review- October

Why do I love Daily Goodie Boxes you might ask!? I support them, because I have discovered products ranging from organic, to companies who donate some proceeds. They obviously care about what products and companies go in their boxes, and this month left me amazed at all the goodies!

Let’s take a closer look at each of the goodies included below 😉

Now and Later -shell shocked

These are sooo good! Chewy and fruity, a much different version, but just as good as the original Now and Laters. They had five flavors: cherry, strawberry, banana, grape and sour apple. All were good, but my favorite was banana. They start out with a fruity gum consistency, but quickly change to a fruity chewy candy. Now and Laters remind me of when I was a kid since they were one of my favorites, and shell shocked was a nice change without compromising quality.

Flathau’s Fine Foods- Key Lime Snaps

These little shortbread cookies were simply irresistible. They are soft, yet have a bit of a crunch, and are sweetened just right. You get the key lime taste immediately, and they melt into your mouth with a nice buttery finish. Flathau’s key lime snaps are nice to compliment a tea, or a scoop of ice cream if you want to take dessert to the next level. Besides key lime, they have a nice variety of flavors, so check them all out to find your favorite 😊

Inko’s organic energy drink

This whole can of Inko’s organic energy is only 100 calories! It has a subtle orange taste, and doesn’t taste artificial. It has 165mg of caffeine per can, which is almost double of what is in a standard 8oz cup of coffee. Perfect for days when you need help getting stuff done👍My verdict, light & refreshing drink that gave me the energy I needed to get stuff done almost immediately. That energy kick lasted a few hours, and I didn’t even feel it wear off; which means no groggy feeling or slump like some energy products give you.

Mirabella glisten eyeshadow palette

I hadn’t heard about Mirabella cosmetics before receiving this pretty little palette in my October daily goodie box, and my first impression was, beautiful neutral colors in a compact palette. The colors are perfect for fall! The shadows apply smooth, I saw no fallout, and even though they have shimmer it’s very subtle. I loved the color combo in this palette, it has warm and cool hues and that beautiful frosty white was perfect. This palette is great for daytime or nighttime looks, and you can create subtle or smokey looks. Overall, I give Mirabella’s glisten palette two thumbs up, any palette that includes reds and golds is great in my opinion; especially when they are quality and richly pigmented. 👍👍If you haven’t already checked out Mirabella cosmetics, I highly recommend you do. They have a beautiful variety of natural beauty products from lips, to eyes, to cheeks.

Pure cosmetics silicone blender

I must admit, this silicone blender by Pure cosmetics is what I was most excited about receiving in this month’s box 🙂 My daily makeup routine includes a beautyblender for under eye concealer, so I decided to compare the sponge blender to Pure cosmetics silicone…

After using the silicone blender, there was no product left behind. The application, surprisingly was faster than with the sponge; which had me second guessing whether I had used enough product – and I had! The silicone blender applied all the product (meaning no waste!), blended even and quick. Another pro, silicone is hypoallergenic and so much easier to clean than the sponge. I LOVED my Pure cosmetics silicone pro blender, and have been officially converted to silicone over the sponge beautyblender. 😊

Pirouline rolled wafer

Piroulines are crispy and creamy rolled wafers, which I’ve enjoyed for years! I was very happy to see these dark chocolate crème de Pirouline along with a $1 off coupon in this month’s Daily Goodie Box. They came in a perfect serving of two (because if you buy a whole tin it’s hard to stop at two 😜). These light and flavorful wafers are great with a coffee or tea, your favorite dessert, or alone. If you have never tried Piroulines, they are a treat you have to give a try!

Kur Scandinavian bite size bars

Kur is a word from the Danish language and it means “to restore to the natural or proper condition”. This bite size bar is 110 calories with 8g of sugar, Kur strives to create pure food without the added sugar. Though it’s a small bar, it’s huge in flavor. You get the coconut and cashew taste from the first to the last bite. This bar is soft, chewy and moist; truly is a natural-tasting and sweet treat. This is why I love Daily Goodie Box, they introduce me to tasty, good for you bars, from companies who care about their product’s quality.

Sun & Earth -natural laundry detergent

Sun & Earth natural laundry detergent had a soft, citrus scent. I like the fact it’s a natural, cruelty free detergent. When washing our laundry we do prefer doing it with a hypoallergenic detergent to prevent any allergic reactions to scents and dyes, so this detergent was a good match. Overall, cleaned my clothes with no residue, left a very subtle and natural citrus scent, and no allergic reaction occurred after wearing clothes. 👍👍

Nellie’s -wrinkle b gone

Nellie’s all natural wrinkle-B-gone is a pretty innovative product, simply because it’s a way to avoid ironing! You wash and dry your clothes as usual, and once out of the dryer, spray Nellie’s wrinkle-b-gone and smooth out the piece of clothing you want to be wrinkle-free. Below is a pre-spray and after-spray image on one of my blouses.

Straight out of the dryer, my blouse was very wrinkled. I sprayed Nellie’s and let it dry for welll over five minutes. Pretty much all the wrinkles were gone, and Nellie’s left a nice fresh scent behind. This is a pretty handyspray, and Nellie’s is a great company committed to natural products.

Daily Goodie Box August Review

This month’s Daily Goodie Box had all these sweet goodies! Daily Goodie Box has been very impressive in goodies they have sent out. I love the fact their selection includes many organic and natural products! Get to know these month’s brands below 🙂

Hannah Max Cookie Chips

These are like thin, crispy chocolate chip cookies. They might lack size in comparison to other cookies, but the flavor was excellent. The crunchy texture, combined with the decadent chocolate made a delicious treat. For those of you who are health conscience, these are 120 per serving (5 cookies), non gmo, no preservatives, and they offer gluten-free options. I truly loved these “thin snacking cookies. ” Check out their selection here.

Yarok- Feed your Moisture Shampoo

This is one of those non-lathering shampoos, but it 100% leaves your scalp feeling clean and your hair moisturized. It’s good for all hair types, and free of paraben sulfates and cruelty free. It has a nice, subtle floral scent to it and immediately after rinsing you can feel the softness in your hair. Yarok is “food for your head, good for the earth,” and you cannot go wrong with something that good! check out their full line of quality and affordable products here.

PB crave flavored peanut butter

Tried this chocolate banana peanut butter by PB Crave straight out of the packet, and it was the perfect quick snack. So delicious, and I loved that it’s sweetened with honey. The little packet it comes in is so handy to keep in your purse or grab and go. Check out of PB Crave flavored peanut butters here.

Javazen organic coffee brew bags

Javazen created these organic coffee brew bags with matcha and cacao, and I was very pleased with the taste. The process of making coffee becomes much easier with simply putting a brew bag into hot water, and the coffee itself tasted smooth and rich. I personally love matcha, so the addition to my coffee makes it even better! Try Javazen organic coffee brew bags here!

Balla body spray for men

Another goody in this month’s Daily Goodie Box for my husband, and he was pretty happy about that! He tried this Balla body spray and said he was very happy with it. He is very picky about scents, and usually prefers a cologne over body spray; but he said this one was actually a nice, clean scent. It reminded me of a classic cologne: subtle, crisp and not overwhelming. It smells good when first applied, and lasts through the day. Check out more products by Balla here.

Clean happens- all purpose cleaner

I was so happy to get a sample of Better Life cleaning products this month, because I have actually used other cleaning products by this brand and was already a fan! This all purpose cleaner came in a convenient spray bottle, ready to use. I love the fact it’s unscented and safe to use, especially with kids. I highly recommend this line of products, check them out here.

Essential oxygen- organic brushing rinse

Essential oxygen has this organic brushing rinse, which is meant to help whiten teeth, fight bad breath, help with teeth sensitivity, and many other oral issues. It’s all natural and a quality product. You use this rinse prior to brushing, then brush with the rinse still in your mouth. You complete the routing with your after brushing rinse, and you are done. The peppermint flavor is very light, and leaves a crisp feeling afterwards. Another great product discovered in my Daily Goodie Box I will definitely be buying! Check out Essential Oxygen products here.

Detox Water peachberry

This is the third time I try Detox Water, and I am not complaining! Every time I get a new flavor, it becomes my favorite! Prior to trying Detox Water, I was not a fan of aloe drinks- that’s how good Detox Water is! Peachberry is a mix of peach & blueberry and it tastes as good as the combination sounds. Sweet, natural and refreshing. Try Detox Water peachberry and their other yummy flavors here.

Daily Goodie Box April review 

Another month means another awesome Daily Goodie Box to review! Behold the goodies packed inside the April box below.

They also included coupons for the companies that provided products this month. The addition of coupons was a smart move, since it’s a nice incentive to order some of the goodies you liked with a nice discount.

Now let’s check our each of the goodies included in April’s Daily Goodie Box 🙂

Bunches of crunches 

This granola is made of grains, chia, amongst other natural yummy ingredients. The flavor is dark chocolate sea salt. I had planned to use it in yogurt or as a cereal, but ended up eating it straight out of the bag. Good idea! It tasted very good, and served as a guilt free snack, since the entire package was only 130 calories. If you like granola, highly recommend this brand.  The chocolate and sea salt combination was the perfect pair. Check out more Bakery on Main products here, or try this Bunches of crunches grainola.

#MPWR zip, zap, gone! spot treatment stick

#MPWR is a stick to treat blemishes. The witch hazel extract helps fight pimples, but surprisingly it doesn’t sting when applied. The scent is also not overpowering as with other spot treatment sticks I’ve tried. Applied it to a pimple that had just popped up, and within two days it was gone. It helped in preventing that big red bump stage, and didn’t dry out my skin. I love that it’s organic, non-drying, and does what it says. Get your own spot corrector stick here, or check out more organic #MPWR skincare products. 

Goddess Garden natural sunscreen 

This sunscreen by Goddess Garden is a spf30 for everyday wear. I wore it on a sunny day out, and it definitely protected my arms from getting tanned by the sun. But my favorite part about this sunscreen was that even though it protects from the sun, it’s light. I applied it to my arms and face, and was so surprised by how well it applied on my face. It doesn’t leave a typical thick, greasy feeling as most sunscreens and even better I really couldn’t detect that unpleasant sunscreen scent. Try one for yourself here, or check out more products by Goddess Garden Organics. 

Eboost energy powder

This little packet packs a big punch of energy. It was a nice taste of strawberry kiwi, not artificial tasting or overly sweet. Gave me a nice pick me up when I needed it, and it faded over time on its own without a groggy feeling left behind. Nice alternative to over sugared and over caffeinated energy drinks.  Try your own Eboost energy powder here

Slurpee cotton candy

I think for most adults, cotton candy brings them back to their childhood. I was very excited to try out Slurpee’s very own cherry cotton candy, and even better to have shared it with my daughter. She tried it and asked “what is this”, when I told her it was cotton candy, she said “I like cotton candy!” The cherry flavor was sweet, and cotton candy was fluffy as it should. It’s nicely packaged for a sweet gift, or party favors. Get one for yourself here!

Peanut Butter & Co mighty nut powdered peanut butter 

I have always been curious about trying out powdered peanut butter, so this packet was a nice surprise. There were two servings which I used to make smoothies. I didn’t use too many ingredients to make sure I got to taste the peanut butter. This packet was vanilla flavored and tasted very good. No chalky aftertaste, just a nice vanilla bean addition. The nice thing about Peanut Butter & Co peanut butter is that it has less fat than traditional peanut butter spreads and a nice five grams of protein per serving. Check out more flavors here, or you can’t go wrong with their vanilla powdered peanut butter. 

Quick Dude Shower Wipes

For that dude in your life, that you want to keep fresh and clean. These handy wipes are pretty much as stated, used to wipe yourself clean when a shower isn’t available.  One of the ingredients is aloe, which is great for your skin. My hubby did the honors of trying them out and liked the fact they weren’t scented and didn’t affect his sensitive skin. These are awesome for road trips or to keep in your car in case you ever need to freshen up. Grab some wipes for yourself or that special dude in your life here.

Detox Water- Lychee and White Grape

I have seriously never been a fan of aloe water, until I tried this one. Detox Water paved the way for me to like aloe water and try other ones to compare to this one. Lychee and white grape was the flavor that came in my Goodie Box. It tasted crisp, not too sweet and quenched my thirst. It didn’t have any aloe chunks as found in other ones, nor the high amount of sugar and calories.  I know that aloe is great for digestive, skin and many other issues, which makes drinking this “healing hydration”, as it states on the back of the bottle. Grab some Detox Water for yourself here, and don’t forget to check out other flavors as well!

Adāmia Therapeutic Repair Lotion

This Adāmia Therapeutic Repair Lotion is a moisturizing yet light one. It has a very light scent but it’s not overpowering or lingers on your skin. It’s a therapeutic lotion meant for dry or cracked skin, but I liked it enough as a an everyday lotion. The macadamia oil found in this lotion is what makes it therapeutic, as the tube states; macadamia oil mimics skins’ natural oils. Very nice addition to this goodie box, get yourself an Adāmia Therapeutic Repair Lotion or check out their other products here
