The Cravory Cookie of the Month January Box

Today I want to talk about a cookie subscription box. The Cravory is a cookie company based out of California that was founded in 2009. You can read more about their story here. The Cravory is not just a subscription service. You can order cookies from them whenever you want. You can check out what cookies the have to offer here.

You can get a teaser box which is $9.00 a month plus shipping. This box contains 6 cookies. This is the box I went with. My total for this box was $16. You can also get a One Dozen Box for $19.00 a month plus shipping. The one dozen box includes 2 of whatever flavors are being showcased for the month. There are other prepaid subscription options that you can find right here.

The January Flavors
Like I said earlier I chose to try the teaser box with the 6 new flavors of the month.
First up we have Coco for Lime. This cookie is made with toasted coconut dough and has key lime  A'Peels and toasted coconut as mix-ins, The cookie is finished with a white chocolate drizzle. 

Next we have PB Smoreo. This cookie is made with peanut butter dough and has Oreo's, milk chocolate chunks and marshmallows as mix-ins.

Then we have Walnut Winter. This cookie is made with cinnamon cake dough and has candied walnuts, vanilla A'Peels and a coating of powdered sugar. 

The fourth cookie in January's box is Toffee Chocolate Bar.This cookie has a shortbread dough with a dark chocolate swirl. The cookie has a milk chocolate shell and is dusted with toffee bits.

Cookie number 5 is Hot Cocoa. This cookie is made with milk chocolate dough and has milk chocolate chunks and brûléed marshmallows in the center.

The final cookie in the box was Bourbon & Chocolate. This cookie has a Kentucky Bourbon dough with dark chocolate shavings mixed in.

My Thoughts on the Box
Overall I was very happy with this box. I was so happy that I went back to purchase a dozen of the PB Smoroe's and found that I could purchase a dozen of the January flavors for $24. All of these cookies were delicious. The cookies were very fresh and unbroken, and I received my teaser box only  2 days after I ordered. I love cookies so this box was totally worth it to me! For $9 plus shipping I think its totally worth it to try the teaser box and see if The Cravory's monthly flavors is the subscription for you.

Influenster Covergirl #gobloom Voxbox Review

It has been a long tome since I received anything from Influenster so I was very happy to be picked for the Covergirl #gobloom Voxbox. The box included Covergirl's Full Lash Bloom mascara. This mascara has a retail value of about $7.99 but it varies at different locations. The promise of this mascara is to give you exceptionally full lashes that are soft to the touch.

As you can see from my before and after picture my lashes are much fuller and this is just one coat of mascara. My lashes are not clumped together and they are not hard at all. The drying time was really quick and the product did not smudge during the day when I rubbed my eyes. Another great thing about this product was that I did not have any flaking, Overall I really enjoyed this mascara and at only $7.99 I think its worth giving it a try and seeing if you like the results!

Greenforce Labs’ NO2 Pre-Workout Supplements

When I received the chance to try these pills through the BrandBacker program I was very happy to try them. These pre-workout pills by Greenforce labs are supposed to help you get the most out of your workout by giving you intense energy and focus as well as maximizing your performance while increasing endurance. These pills include Vitamin B-3, Vitamin B-12, Caffeine, L-Arginine, L-Ornithin, L-Citrulline, and Beet Root Extract. L Arginine, L Ornithine, and L Citrulline have been shown to increase nitric oxide levels, support muscular energy, and delay fatigue. The Beet Root Extract enhances exercise performance and reduce fatigue while Niacinamide and Caffeine boost your energy levels to the max.

The energy that I got from these pills were great. I was able to exercise for a longer period of time. The pills did also help fight muscle fatigue. I was worried about having an energy crash because these pills do contain caffeine but I did not experience any of that. I'm not sure so much about the pills increasing my focus but overall these are great pills to take when your working out. You can find out more information about Greenforce Labs and their products here.

Hyperbiotics Pro-Immune Advanced Immune Formula Tablets

Today I want to talk to you all about HyperBiotics Pro-Immune Advanced Immune tablets. These tablets are designed to address immune function on multiple levels and  promote whole-body wellness. These tablets combine Vitamin C, Zinc and Echinacea and EpiCore (an immune system strengthener) with 5 Broad Spectrum Probiotic Strains. These pills offer targeted probiotic support so if you are taking a probiotic supplement they will be a great addition to help strengthen your probiotic regimen.

I have been taking these pills for a week in conjunction with the Hyperbiotics Pro- 15 probiotics. I started taking the Pro-15 tablets before I started taking the Pro-Immune tablets. When I started taking both the pills together I noticed that I had better bowel movements when I took the pills together versus only taking the probiotic. The Pro-Immune pills are supposed to help "keep you well" so I would assume that they would help keep you from catching colds. That has not been true for me because I have been taking them everyday and I have still caught a cold. It is recommend that you increase your dose of the Pro-Immune pills to 3-4 tablets daily if you feel that you have an illness coming on. I plan on doing that to see if it helps.

I'm not sure if these pills work for immune system support when it comes to illness but they do work well as a support system for probiotics. If you want to find out more info about these tablets you can use this link. They can be purchased from Amazon here.
