November 2016 Barbella Box

November 2016 Barbella Box

Happy 2017! I’m kicking of the new year with a review of November 2016 Barbella Box.  This box was customized by Lauren Brooks.

EXO Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle:

Gold water bottle with a screw top and open mouth. I’ve linked to a similar one on their website. The one that came in the box was made especially for Barbella and is double in size.  Personally I don’t like water bottles that have an open mouth top.  However I can see this being useful to bring on hikes or picnics.  It can keep water (or wine, no judging) cold and would be easy to pour into travel cups.

EXO Wrist Wraps:

These are purple! They are such an awesome color and match the new Nano 6s that I got (more on those later).  That said, I do have a love/hate relationship with them.  They are soft and way more flexible than other wraps I’ve used, which I love.  However they are “universal” wraps which is a fancy of way of saying, they are the same.  Meaning, there is no right and left wrap.  If you’ve used wrist wraps before, then you know they usually come in right and left.  The fact that this does not DRIVES ME BANANAS.  Because it means that you are not wrapping your wrists the same way which can throw things off a bit.

So it’s taking some getting used to. I love them and I’ll use them but Imma be cranky about it.

Barbell Beanie:

I love this hat so much! It has fun colors, it’s soft, and the adorable barbell on the front is awesome. I’ve gotten so many compliments on it too.  It’s warm, it doesn’t ride up when working out or running and did I mention it’s soft? So it doesn’t cause my forehead to itch when I wear it for extended periods of time.

doTERRA Bath Bar and Deep Blue Rub:

I’ve been wanting to try out doTERRA for a while now and I’m stoked to see these products! I have not used the soap yet but it smells divine and I cannot wait to try out the rub on some sore muscles.

Summary:

Over all this box wasn’t too bad.  It probably has the most items that I’ll actually use and that fit my current needs.  If you’re doing any kind of weight lifting and want to treat yourself, definitely checkout Barbella Box. It’s such a fun box to get each month and you can customize the frequency of shipments as well.  If you don’t want a box each month, no worries! Skip it and go with your own schedule.
