Disclaimer: I received a free Bestowed box in exchange for a review. The box I am reviewing is actually the March box. The company graciously allowed me to delay my review until I felt less like a zombie and more like a human. All opinions are my own.
I drive Chris nuts sometimes. I mean doesn’t every wife? One of the ways that drives him insane is the fact that I like a little bit of everything. This means I tend to want to order an appetizer, main meal, and dessert when we go out to dinner and have a few bites of each. Not entirely practical. Same thing goes when trying new products. I hesitate to go too far out of my comfort zone without knowing if I am going to like something. I HATE wasting. Just ask the coconut water still in my fridge that hasn’t been consumed.
It’s because of this that I find subscription boxes particularly intriguing. I mean … I get to try a bunch of new products for an affordable price? Sign me up! So when Bestowed asked if I wanted to try their box I said heck yes!
I got a ton of new fun things to try. The thing I like most about Bestowed is they are committed to sending products that are healthy and working with brands being chosen based on ingredients and nutrition. They even consider where the product is made and what kind of packaging is used. Looking at their list of brands I felt comfortable since I purchase items from many of them already.
Emmie gobbles up the smoothie pouch and fig bar before I even had a chance. The coconut butter was also pretty tasty! My mother-in-law took the olives which was fine because the spiciness probably would’t sit well with my preggo belly 😉 I am not sure what to do with the hemp hearts (side note: did you know hemp products are a banned substance in the Army? I can’t add them to anything Chris eats) so any ideas would be great!
Overall I think the Bestowed box is a pretty cool way to try some new products. Seeing posts from May April and May boxes makes me think this even more. They cost $19 per month which is an affordable way to try out a bunch of new things! You can sign up HERE.
**Eye Update: Thanks for your kind words on my eye yesterday. The retina specialist said I have a bleed behind my retina but it should in theory resolve itself. Probably due to my extreme nearsightedness combined with constant throwing up due to the hyperemesis. I go back next week for another scan so hopefully between now and then it starts to improve!
