Winter Favorites Crave Box Review and Swatches
Near the end of December CraveBox opened up their drawing for the Winter Favorites box. Crave Box is a unique subscription box service in that all boxes are lottery style. You can pick which boxes you want and which ones you don't. Each box ranges from $10-$15 and you know the price before hand! To enter you simply fill out a survey and wait. If chosen you are charged and sent a big box of products and coupons!
This box contained more coupons than normal. Since the stores closest to me do not take coupons i am unable to use these but to those who live near stores like walmart or large grocery stores would have probably been pleased to see these.
Heinz Chili Sauce-
Labeled for use in burgers and on fries (and also on meatballs as shown in the recipe) this lightly spicy, ketchup tasting chili sauce is a great dip. I tried it on fries and over chicken and i highly enjoyed it.
A few months back Influenster sent out Beauty Blogger boxes and some had Vitabath products, mine however didn't. I was pleased to be able to try these products. While small samples i found them to be high quality and nicely scented.
Mary Kay Lip Gloss-
Mary Kay, from my knowledge, is a door to door brand. While i find myself to be knowledgeable on various cosmetics i do not know much about the Mary Kay brand or its products. I did like this gloss however. I found its medium pigmentation and its non sticky application to be quite pleasant.
Campbell's Gormet Bisques Golden Butternut Squash-
I love butternut squash and i find Campbell's to be a fantastic brand. I found this soup to be delicious. Served topped with croutons an some cheese this soup is perfect for snowy or cold days and a quick meal.
Belvita Blueberry Breakfast Biscuit-
I had this quick and easy breakfast with a cup of coffee. I have a 2 and a half year old son who sometimes makes it hard to have a decent breakfast or any at all. This was enjoyable, filling, and i felt satisfied after eating these! Great on the go.
Overall i really enjoyed this box. I liked that CraveBox staid true to the theme for the most part. Soup for cold winter nights, gloss to keep lips moisturized, skin products to keep skin feeling great during the winter months, and great coupons. While biscuits and chili sauce aren't exactly winter favorites i enjoyed them non the less.
