December 2016 Barbella Box

Dec 2016 Barbella Box

Here are the goodies from December (2016) Barbella Box:

Vull Sport Leggings Exclusive Barbella Leggings

These are like a muted navy color with mesh cutouts in the legs.  They fit really well and are super comfortable.  Unfortunately I’ll only be wearing these at home. I’m not sure how women can wear colored shorts, leggings, and tights while working out.  I sweat down there.  And I sweat a lot so if I wear colored workout pants then it just looks like I peed myself.  Because sweat happens.  I’m not sure if other women don’t sweat as much down there or what but sadly I can’t wear these to workout.  They also hug tight, not in an uncomfortable way, but in a very snug way and they show ever little bump and lump.  I just wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing these to the gym at this point.

Junk Brands Ear Warmer Headband

I love this headband so much!  It’s fun colors and super soft material.  It has the Barbella logo on it and fits my head like a dream. So far it doesn’t slide around or ride up.

Barbella Ornament Car Freshener

I didn’t realize this was a freshener at first and was about to hang it on my Christmas tree when I realized that it had a fragrance to it.  That’s when I checked the item card and realized that it was a car freshener.  It’s adorable, smells delightful, and has #LikeAGirl on one side and Barbella on the other.  It’s hanging in my car and I’m not sure I’m going to take it down even when it runs out of freshener.

Go Cubes Coffee Chews

These I’m passing off to Scott or someone else.  I can’t have caffeine so I can’t have these. Here’s what the website says about them:

“GO CUBES pack half a cup of coffee (50 mg caffeine) into a single cube. But it’s more than just coffee. Through Nootrobox’s R&D, we’ve reduced the jitteriness of caffeine and added nootropics for a well-rounded, steady and focused feel.”

Quest Nutrition Breakfast Bar

In Cinnamon Bun flavor.  I don’t normally eat stuff like this but I was at work one day and had this with me so I gave it a try.  Holy balls it was so gross.  Sorry, but it was like eating chalk infused with a bunch of fake sugar.  I spit it out and tossed the bar.  Ugh, not my thing.  Give me an RXBar anytime over that!

Summary: 

This box was just alright. There wasn’t a ton in this box that was super useful for me.  The headband I can use all winter long but the leggings I can only wear around the house in the spring.  The other stuff aren’t things that I go for.

That said, I’ve been doing Barbella Box since May of last year and overall the amount of boxes that I didn’t really care for were small.  Most of the boxes had awesome products in them that I use all the time.  I’m still going to keep my subscription because I love getting this box each month and getting exposed to new products.  Plus I love that it’s geared specifically towards lifting.  It makes it feel more special and makes me feel like a badass.

I highly recommend it giving Barbella Box a try!
