Fancy A Treat? February DegustaboxUK Has You Covered!

March 4, 2017 1 Comment

I’ve actually become quite fond of DegustaboxUK as it’s constantly allowing me to try new things. Being such a picky eater, it’s excellent for me to try things first, without feeling I am wasting money on something I won’t later eat. The February DegustaboxUK seems to be full of snacks & treats this month. There was even a bottle of wine!

February DegustaboxUK

Willy Chase’s Fit Popcorn RRP £1.99-£2.19 – This Salted Honey is one of five flavours you could have received in your February Degustabox. These are gluten-free – great news for me as someone who has a gluten intolerance. Also only 107 cals per serving. I do like popcorn and these were nice. In all honesty though, it just tasted like salted popcorn. I couldn’t really taste the honey at all.

February DegustaboxUK

Bebeto Candy Crush RRP £1.69 – As the name suggest, these candies are fun candies based on the Candy Crush game. I do like stuff like this. These were fruity, fun and had a lot of flavour. I wasn’t 100% keen on all the candies, I preferred some over others. They are a mixed fruit flavour jelly.

February DegustaboxUK

Bebeto Cheese Cake Jelly Gums RRP £1.69 – Another fun bag of gummy candies to share from Bebeto. These are cheesecake shaped jelly candies with real fruit juice. Both of the Bebeto share bags are DegustaboxUK’s product of the month too.

February DegustaboxUK

Maui and Sons Dark Chocolate Coated Banana Chips RRP £ 1.00 – These banana chips make a healthier gluten-free snack choice.  The banana chips are cooked in coconut oil and then coated in dark Belgian chocolate. They are crunchy tasty. Something different to snack on. Also Vegan and preservative free.

February DegustaboxUK

Koko Dairy Free Original RRP £1.50 – This is a milk alternative made from freshly pressed coconut milk. It’s free from lactose and soya and it has added Calcium and Vitamins D2 & B12. With fewer calories than skimmed milk you can substitute this where ever you would use milk. This was not for me but the rest of my family enjoyed it.

February DegustaboxUK

Just Bee Honey Water ‘Blueberry’ RRP £1.49 – This is a simple refreshing alternative to plain water. It has only 49 calories, no refined sugar and nothing artificial. Simply water, juice from blueberries and a hint of lemon juice.  Just Bee was created by a family of British beekeepers. I really liked this and it’s a great choice for hydration for those that don’t like drinking plain water.

February DegustaboxUK

Blossom Hill Fruit Bloom ‘Hints of Elderflower’ RRP £4.99 – You could have received this or the Summer Fruits flavour in your February DegustaboxUK. Sadly due to my medication I couldn’t actually try this – no alcohol for me. I was assured it was really lovely when chilled. It was fruity and it certainly did have light bubbles in it.

February DegustaboxUK

Double Dutch Mixer ‘Pomegranate & Basil’ RRP £1.19 – This was very different. Probably great for someone who loves to mix different drinks and cocktails. Really not something I liked though. The only mixer I really enjoy is Ginger Ale.

Often considered to be a superfood, pomegranate has a complex flavour profile that straddles sweet and tart but also offers a tannin note that brings body and structure to cocktails. Basil, in the anise family, has always been renowned for lifting acidic flavours such as tomatoes and in a soft drink its peppery top note is a superb counterbalance to pomegranate, delivering a complex, exotic mid-taste that supports rather than overwhelming a mixed drink – Double Dutch Drinks Website

February DegustaboxUK

Kabuto Rice Noodles RRP £1.99 – A quick and easy snack if you’re in a rush. I can’t eat anything with peppers in it due to an intolerance but a family member had this and said it was really tasty. Full of flavour and super easy to prepare. It is made with authentic quality Asian ingredients, no preservatives or additives either.

February DegustaboxUK

New York Delhi’s Americanos RRP £1.00 – Quality, roasted Guatemalan coffee beans covered in dark chocolate and ready to eat. I don’t like coffee, so I didn’t try  these. It’s funny as I really like the smell of coffee. I just don’t like the taste. Others did try them though. They had quite a strong, intense flavour and weren’t really that they liked too much. If you love coffee and dark chocolate, I am sure you would love these though!

February DegustaboxUK

Heinz Beans No Added Sugar RRP £0.65 x 2 – I’ve loved beans on toast since I was little and I still love it. I have tried the NAS ones before and I wasn’t too keen on the taste. This is a new recipe though and I’m glad to say, it is much improved.

February DegustaboxUK

Diablo No Added Sugar Cream Filled Milk Chocolate Wafer RRP £0.95 – This is quite a tasty wafer bar. It’s full of flavour but free of any added sugar, so no need to feel so guilty eating one of these.

February DegustaboxUK

Coldpress ‘Berry Beets’ RRp £ 2.79 – One of two flavours you could have received.  Crammed with natural fruit and vegetable juices and lower in naturally occurring sugars too. I cannot stand beetroot BUT I did try this. I really wanted to love it and it did have a mostly fruity taste. The after taste however, had this kind of beetroot tang to it. Love the idea, but would love to try a different flavour than this one.

February DegustaboxUK

Peppersmith  Dental Mints OR Dental Chewing Gum RRP £1.50 ea – I really liked both of these. They were fresh, minty and actually quite strong and a bonus being sugar-free. You would have received one of these in your February DegustaboxUK.

February DegustaboxUK

Willy’s Apple Cider Vinegar RRP £6.95 500ml – There was a free gift sample of this apple cider vinegar too. I know this has a lot of health benefits and many people actually take a shot of apple cider vinegar each day. Seriously google apple cider vinegar and you will find a whole host of things that it has been proven to be beneficial for.

 

Overall Thoughts About The February DegustaboxUK


February DegustaboxUK

Although there might have been a few things this month that I didn’t like or couldn’t try, I still think the February DegustaboxUK was a great box.

What I didn’t or couldn’t have, there was someone else in my family that did. So, nothing ever goes to waste.

I mean, just look at the selection of products you can get. Such fantastic value each month.

 

NB: Please be aware that as I receive my DegustaboxUK for review purposes, I receive all items that are available each month. So there may be items that you didn’t receive in your own box.

 

WHERE CAN I BUY DEGUSTABOXUK?


You can purchase the Degustaboxuk for just £12.99 a month including delivery, it’s a fantastic box.

You can get your first box for just £5.99 (YES £7.00 OFF!!!) by using my special discount code at the Checkout – O6DGV

  • So when I purchased the Honey Potion from @Beautylish about 3 months ago, I also purchased these bad boys from @goodmolecules too! 😀⠀
⠀
I haven't cracked them open yet though as I already have a few serums/oils in rotation at the moment. So, I don't want to waste products by opening these yet.⠀
⠀
This is the Super Seven set & cost me $56!!! For seven products - can you believe that!? 😲⠀
⠀
These are the seven products you get:⠀
⠀
💠Hyaluronic Acid Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀
💠Niacinamide Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀
💠Overnight Exfoliating Treatment Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀
💠 Squalane Oil Size: 13 ml / 0.44 oz⠀
💠 Super Peptide Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀
💠 Ultra-Hydrating Facial Oil Size: 13 ml / 0.44 oz⠀
💠 Wake Up Eye Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀
⠀
I'm really looking forward to using them - trust me it's killing me not to open them already!⠀
⠀
Since I purchased these they have actually brought out four more products, which I will aim to purchase at some point in the future. Well, depending on how I get on with these, that is. ⠀
⠀
Have you tried anything from @GoodMolecules yet?⠀

  • Happy Friday everyone!! ⠀
⠀
I know a lot of people have to have their coffee first thing before they get going for the day. ⠀
⠀
Me? Well, this is exactly how I like my coffee in the morning- in my face scrub! 😛⠀
⠀
Truly love this @upcirclebeauty Face Scrub. (Citrus Blend) ⠀
⠀
Smells amazing, leaves my face clean, soft, moisturised and gently exfoliated - not tight and dry like some products can. 😍⠀
⠀
Such a great way to recycle the coffee grounds too. 😀⠀
⠀
What's your favourite exfoliator to use? ⠀

  • I'll admit I am a sucker for a good face mask. Even more so if it's a honey one. 🍯 😍⠀
⠀
This @farmacybeauty Honey Potion had been on my wishlist since I first came across it on Instagram ages ago. All I can say is it did not disappoint. Actually it did, in fact, exceed my expectations! ⠀
⠀
I love watching the honey gooey texture change from a golden hue to creamy white when you start to massage it into your skin as it gets warm. ⠀
⠀
After 10-15 mins it's ready to rinse off. Personally, I prefer to gently remove with a damp cloth, then pat dry.⠀
⠀
My face always feels so very soft afterwards. It's suitable for all skin types but especially those that are dry, dehydrated and dull, which is pretty much my skin all over. I do feel like my skin looks more radiant as well as feeling nice and hydrated after using Honey Potion. ⠀
⠀
I'd like to also mention the packaging, which is just beautiful - and I adore that the spatula/lid is magnetic too! 😊⠀
⠀
This was a bit of a luxe purchase for me as I ordered it from Beautylish, along with some other skincare goodies that I wanted to try. I loved that I could split the total into 3 payments with them too. 🙂⠀
⠀
Have you tried Honey Potion or anything else from @farmacybeauty?⠀

  • {gifted} I don't really like wearing foundation so this 'Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base' by @touchinsol_ldn is perfect for me. It's not only a great base to use under your makeup but also makes your skin glow all on its own! 😍⠀
⠀
I happily wear this without feeling the need to put foundation on, or even a BB or CC cream. ⠀
⠀
Of course, it is a honey & collagen-based primer with a host of natural extracts & vitamins, so no wonder it makes the skin look, radiant and, for want of a better word, bouncy! 🍯 ⠀
⠀
What's your favourite primer/base to wear alone or under makeup?⠀
