Black Box NZ is probably one of New Zealand’s favourite sample box provider. Thousands of New Zealanders have signed up on the waiting list to be part of the sample review programme. Only a few on the waiting list qualify for certain boxes so you can wait for months and sometimes a year for a box to try out. Each box contains a number items from cleaning products to food for us to try out and report back on. I was lucky to receive my first box for the year in June so here is a quick review on some of the products I received inside the Health & Wellbeing Box!
Health & Wellbeing: Mum & Baby Box
Vogel’s Harvest Grains bread loaf
I was really impressed with this bread. The grains were delicious and even my children enjoyed the taste. My son particularly was disappointed when the loaf was finished.
Harraways NZ Steel Cut Oats
Maybe it’s because I’m more used to the creamy oats rather than the steel cut oats but I was actually a little disappointed with the tastelessness of this product.
Blackmores Wild Blueberry Blend Superfood Powder
I’m a little ambivalent about this one. It’s very versatile product in that you can use it as a drink on it’s own or mix it into a porridge or smoothie but it’s a take it or leave it product to me.
Nescafe Coffee Sachet
I received the Cappuccino and the Salted Caramel samples for this. My husband & I really enjoyed these samples but I’m also guilty of having already purchased this product in various flavours on a regular basis for months!
Tasti Supergrains Muesli Bars
This was another one that I was ambivalent about. I actually prefer the Nice & Natural version. My children really enjoyed them however.
Comfort Hypoallergenic Fabric Conditioner
I really liked this product! My washing came out soft and smelling lovely.
Ethique Lime & Ginger Body Polish
This was quite an interesting product to me. The bar has a delicious smell to it and left my body feeling really smooth. The bar itself was quite rough on my skin while working it’s smoothness.
This was a new experience for me. After 4 babies I’m well experienced in baby wipes. Some of them are a pleasure to use and some of them horrible. The waterwipes was a pleasure to use in comparison.
Rafferty’s Garden Baby Food
I’ve tried Bella with all sorts of different baby foods when she first started taking solids and she never really enjoyed any of them. This was the first time I had even heard of Rafferty’s Garden and so it was the first time Bella had tried them and this time she actually enjoyed the taste of baby food.
