Daily Goodie Box - October 2018

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own.

I received a Goodie Box for the month of October 2018 and it's filled with all kinds of goodies. From nuts and toothpaste to coffee and shampoo, there's something for everyone in this kit! Check it out below. 

This is a great shampoo and body wash, that works so well for cleaning your baby's skin. It's also good for those with sensitivities as it is free of phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, and parabens. It is all pH-balanced and tear free. The soap foams well and washes away with ease. I would prefer it to have a slight oil feel to it because it just feels so airy but overall it's really great. I really enjoy the soft Chamomile scent as well. 

NightFood Bars for when you're feeling a little munchy. 
These bars are great to eat if you need a midnight snack. They are snackable and give you just enough to feel satisfied, without overdoing it. Each bar provides the right amount of protein while being high in fiber and low in calories. One bar has less sugar in it than a cup of skim milk so you can indulge in a tasty treat instead of a warm glass of milk! I received the flavor Midnight Chocolate Crunch for my bar, and though I wasn't in love with the flavor, I like the idea of this product. It makes you feel like you're eating a candy bar but without the extra junk. I would love to try their other flavors!

Said to be an 'elegant coffee with balanced flavor, aroma, and acidity' ... At first taste of this coffee, I thought it was too bitter. The balance feels off and it didn't fell elegant, but the aroma was satisfying. I found that once I added more grounds to the brew, the better the coffee started to taste. It's not a flavor that would be my first choice, but I like this coffee brand and love that is it ethically sourced, organic, fairtrade, and kosher. They also have a good variety of other flavors to enjoy.

This is a pretty handy wallet to add to your phone. It makes for easy grabbing when you need specific cards and don't want to take your wallet with you. I'm always afraid the cards will slide out but this one seems to be pretty good. It has a snap closure to keep the cards in place and it's slim enough to keep in your pocket. It's also compatible with all the latest phones so it would make a great stocking stuffer gift.

I really enjoyed trying out this toothpaste and could really taste the Tea Tree and Clove flavors. Though it contains no fluoride or sodium lauryl sulfate, it produced suds well and left my teeth feeling clean. I like that Coral White helps prevent cavities by raising the pH in your saliva while it also works on whitening the teeth and keeping the breath fresh. I also like that it's said that the whole food mineral complex from the fossilized stony coral minerals in this toothpaste, will also help re-mineralize the enamel on your teeth! Now that's pretty cool.

I really wanted to love this product but Matcha tea is a strong taste that makes it really hard for me to enjoy. I found it to be bitter with really small amounts of mint. It would have been nice to taste the mint a bit stronger. I like that matcha is supposed to help improve your mood, memory, and concentration, among other great benefits to drinking, but I have a hard time enjoying the taste. If you like drinking matcha, this would be a great tea for you!

This is the first time I've tried Vegan Mayo so that was exciting for me. I was shocked on the flavor as it was more tart than I was expecting. I wanted to like it, but I have to admit I prefer regular Mayo to the vegan one. I do like that this is made from garbanzo beans and 100% pure avocado oil. It's a good substitute for vegans to eat Mayo, and it's a flavor I could adjust to if I had to. The texture is perfect and just as you would expect it to be.

Cashews are my number one favorite nut, so trying these was a fun chance in a unique flavor. Peri Peri Roasted Cashews were the ones I got to try. They have a hint of exotic red chili spice, giving them a little kick. The full list of seasonings contain Chili, Onion, Garlic, Sea Salt, Natural Cane Sugar, Lime Powder, Natural Chili Extract, Natural Onion Extract, Natural Garlic Extract, so you can imagine the flavor on these nuts. I would have liked to try one of their other sweeter flavors, as I am not a big spice fan, but these were still great!

If you like energy drinks, you might enjoy trying an Iron Energy. It's a drink crafted in Europe, designed with organic products and sweeteners to provide a 'better for you' energy drink. I;m not a fan of energy drinks, but I did try the one I received, which was in the flavor: Tutti Fruity. It's nothing I want to drink but I'm sure others might enjoy it!

As always, I have enjoyed trying each product from this round of Goodie Box. If you would like to sample your own products, visit DailyGoodieBox.com and sign up!
