Daily Goodie Box – June 2017

Today I’ve got something great to get us through hump day.
A FREE box.  That’s right, I said free.
Daily Goodie Box will send you a box of free product samples.  All you need to do is sign up and then leave your reviews of the product on their site.  It’s that simple.  It’s subject to availability of course, but free is free.

Here’s our box…

Tiger Balm –  Pain Relieving Ointment
Verdict:  Useful, but small
Tiger balm is great when you’ve done something you’re probably not supposed to do and your muscles are making you pay for it.  I just wish the sample was a little bigger.

Prince of Peace – Original Ginger Honey Crystals
Verdict: Great for a cold
I’m not much into ginger beverages, but this sounds like something that would be perfect for when you catch some horrible subway flu.  The size is great for a sample.

Black Forest Organic –  Gummy Bears
Verdict:  You had me at gummy
I’ll be honest, if it’s fruit flavored and in gummy form, I’ll probably love it.  These were delicious, not quite as amazing as the Albanese gummies, but still quite good.

BiPro – Protein Water Berry Burst
Verdict:  Not my jam
I’m not really into the flavored “waters” and I try to stay away from drinks that have calories.  This had the type of flavor you’d expect from berry flavored water – a slightly synthetic, but mostly refreshing drink.

Crown Maple – Organic Maple Syrup
Verdict:  Love!
Organic maple syrup in an adorable glass bottle. Yes, please!

VitaBath – Travel Size Body Wash
Verdict:  Hit!
Bodywash is a product that my household goes through pretty quickly so I’m always happy to try a new brand.  This one is sulfate and paraben free and comes in a variety of scents.  Mine is coconut which sounds perfect for summer.

BetterThanCoffee – Energy Bars
Verdict:  Not too bad
I’m not big on “energy” bars or drinks.  This one did have a more natural, hippy type flavor and texture.  It seemed like something that was good for you. (If that makes sense).

Pure Growth Organic – Snack Mix
Verdict:
  Decent
There’s nothing extraordinary about this mix.  It tastes just fine and I think kids will like it.

Goddess Garden – Mineral Removing Cleanser
Verdict:  Too small
I’m always up for trying out new organic beauty products, but I think this sample is just too small to get a real idea of whether you truly like this product or not.

OVERALL

Because this is a free box, I’m not going to give it an overall rating, but I found it to be a wonderful free box.  Most of the sizes are more than adequate to judge the products, and it has a nice mix of different types of things, including some brands you might not know about otherwise.  I also appreciate that it included a lot of organic and healthy options.  Definitely worth the five minutes it takes to sign up and the few minutes it takes to write a couple sentences about each item.

Daily Goodie Box – Free Samples!

I’ve got a great post today that I’ve been saving for a while.
A FREE box.  That’s right, I said free.
Daily Goodie Box will send you a box of free product samples.  All you need to do is sign up, then leave your reviews of the product on their site.  It’s that simple.  It’s subject to availability of course, but free is free.

Here’s our box…

I open it up and am pleasantly surprised to see a lot of products including full sizes.
It also included some info and coupons for the products.
This is not a stingy free box.


Pipcorn Sea Salt

Verdict:  Decent
I prefer fluffier popcorn, but these were a light treat and a nice alternative to chips.


Gertrude Hawk – Peanut Butter Meltaway Bar

Verdict: Delicious!
This was like a creamier Reese’s peanut butter cup.  So tasty and I ate it all in one sitting.
Coupon: Use code DAILYGOODIE10 for $10 off any $20 online purchase.  Expires 6/30/2017.


True Natural – Benecos Natural Beauty Lip Gloss

Verdict:  Not for me
The color on this was a bit warm for me. (I think my shade was “praline”.)  It had very little staying power, but it did give a lovely shimmer, and worked better for me layered over other products.  The gloss had a pleasant texture and wasn’t too sticky or goopy and felt nice on my lips.

Bhakti – Yerba Maté Chai Artisan Tea

Verdict:  Like
I haven’t had a chance to try this yet, but it sounds tasty and the packaging is adorable.


Miss Jones – Organic Cookie Mix

Verdict:  Hit!
I love baking so I was excited to see a cookie mix in here. I always enjoy trying out more specialty mixes.


Elemental Herbs – All Good Organic Skin Food

Verdict:  Not my jam
I’m pretty sure this is just coconut oil, so I don’t know why it needs to be a fancy brand with fancy packaging.  I know coconut oil is second only to kale, in how people like to use it for everything, but I find it a bit too greasy for my regular skincare.


Savant Naturals – Savi Crisp Chocolate Protein Bar

Verdict:  No, just No.
This was so terrible.  Like if sawdust, cardboard and old chocolate had a baby.  I couldn’t get past one bite.


Wild Foods – Cocotropic, Chocolate Nootropic Drink

Verdict:  Above my Hipster Level
I don’t think I’m Hipster enough to understand what to do with this.  I’ll figure it out, but I may need to spend some time in Brooklyn.


RunGum – Energy Gum

Verdict:  Stop adding caffeine to everything
I’m not a runner, I’m not even a fast walker, so maybe that’s why I don’t understand why you would want caffeine in your gum. Isn’t caffeine already in so many wonderful things.  Why do we need to add it where it doesn’t belong?  I’m guessing I’m not the target audience for this.


Älsa – Energy Drink Mix

Verdict:  Apparently we all need energy
I’m don’t really consume energy drinks – unless you count my Coke Zero addiction.  I may give these a try, but right now they aren’t really calling my name.

OVERALL

Because  this is a free box, I’m not going to give it an overall rating, but I found that it exceeded by expectations.  I’ve tried free product boxes in the past, but there were very few samples and it was so difficult to nab one before they were gone.
Daily Goodie Box had a lot of products including some full sizes.  Definitely worth the five minutes it takes to sign up and the few minutes it takes to write a couple sentences about each item after you’ve tried them.
