The first item that we tried were the EatSmart Three Bean Tortilla Chips ((made with pinto, navy, and black beans wit 14 grams of whole grain and is gluten free made with non-GMO ingredients which is great). My cousins were over so we devoured that bag in less than 10 minutes. Even though it was a new flavor, it tasted like something we had already tried but just couldn’t wrap our mind on what it was. It def is spicy so if you are not into that, I don't think you would like it. The chip alone was good, but we like chips with dip. So, we tried it salsa and then we tried it with McDonalds Sweet and Sour sauce. The sweet and sour sauce won that round. If you see it in store, def try it the sweet and sour sauce.
The second item in the box was from Hair Food Moisture Collection. I had never seen this brand so when I saw it I was really intrigued by it and the sample size was a decent size. I don't have such long hair so this lasted for 2 showers. This shampoo and conditioner is infused with honey and apricot fragrances. It’s silicone free, paraben free, and mineral oil free. This product was actually made in Thailand, I’m surprised it wasn’t China or USA. After just one use my hair is extremely super soft and smells wonderful. My hair smelled amazing!!! I use different kinds of shampoos and conditioners and this left my hair feeling really soft and silky. I def would purchase this.
With the healthy life style theme, the third product I decided to try was the Orgain Organic Protein Powder in Vanilla Bean (plant-based protein powder). I don't normally drink any protein drinks when I work out, just plain old H20. But because I had the sample, I decided to try it out. The taste was surprisingly good. Not, sure if I want to purchase this since I don't normally drink protein shakes to begin with. But, if you are someone that does, I say go out and buy it so you can judge for yourself.The next item that we tried was the ECOS hypoallergenic Laundry Detergent. I've never heard of this brand either. If you like floral scents, you will def enjoy using this. It left my clothes feeling clean and refreshed. No one in my household has sensitive skin, so I don't know if I will purchase this. But, for those that do, this would be a great alternative.
The last item in my box was the Curate Bar: Dark and Tempting Flavor. I don't normally eat healthy stuff like this, so I passed this along to my mother. She's a big health nut so I thought this was gonna be perfect for her. She tried it and said it was just ok. Nothing too special. So, I don't think I will be purchasing this.
Overall the box was a good way to try new brands. As mentioned, I have never heard of these brands so I would have never tried to pick these up on my own. Great way to experience new things.
