Hey friends! Got a few product reviews I’d like to share with you. I had the opportunity to collaborate with Babble Boxx, an influencer marketing company to review a few fitness and wellness products. They sent over a few items and I couldn’t wait to try them. These product reviews are my own opinion and Babble Boxx has given me special promos to share in case you’re interested.
Tiger Balm Active Muscle Spray
Okay, I grew up using Tiger Balm and it was the at-home remedy for everything! My mom swears by this and used it for ailments like colds, asthma, muscle soreness, allergies, and everything in between. Funny story, when I tore my ACL years ago, my mom told me to apply some on thinking it would help. Ha. I’ll always remember that. Tiger Balm is pretty awesome, but it definitely can’t replace surgery.
So when I learned that Tiger Balm came out this active spray product, I was all for it! I was so used to the balm and applying it with my hands. The spray form is definitely easier and perfect for those hard to reach places. Still has the same nostalgic smell. If you’ve never used Tiger Balm before, it does have that pepperminty, menthol, icy tingly feeling once it’s applied and then does feel heated.

AfterShokz Trekz Air Headphones
First in the box I was most excited about would be the AfterShokz headphones. They came in this gorgeous forest color which is perfect for all. Before the AfterShokz, I was only familiar with using in-ear noise cancelling headphones, so I was most interested in giving these a try. What makes the AfterShokz special is that it’s a bone conduction technology so you can hear the music through your cheekbones. You’re given earplugs which does give you that same noise- cancelling effect. You’re also still able to hear the world around you which is great when you need to be aware of your surroundings so you can also forego the earplugs.
It’s perfect for when I’m outside walking, running, or hopping on the Bird and taking a scooter stroll through the streets. The fit was great and comfortable. The only downside I could potentially see is losing those earplugs, but let’s be real. You’re current earbuds/plugs are probably disgusting and replacing them more often is probably more hygienic anywhere. If you’re interested to trying them, use code BABBLE for $55 off the AfterShokz when you purchase using this link.
GO Comfort Insoles
I am ALWAYS on my feet. I put them through the ringer in my workouts, but I’m so glad I live in my athletic shoes. They’re already comfy as it is and now I can just walk on clouds with GO Comfort. GO Comfort offers 3 types of insoles: All Day comfort insole, Work insole, and Athletic insoles to choose from. You can actually find these at any CVS or order them here. I shared the work and all day pairs with my mom since she is on her feet for work and she says they’re comfortable. Go Comfort insoles are meant to absorb shock and help alleviate foot and lower back pain. If I am on my feet too long, I always get .hip pain so it was nice learning they have options for every type of activity. You can get 20% + free shipping if you use code: GOcomfortBB20. That promo code is valid through 12/31/18.
CELSIUS Original Line: Sparkling Kiwi Guava
Before trying Celsius, I’d seen the product before and was familiar with the mission. It’s a fitness energy drink that caters to fitness folks much like a pre-workout. One of my friends actually swears by it and orders it often. Celsius claims to be your Ultimate Fitness Partner and is supposed to accelerate your metabolism during your workouts which results in burning more calories. They sent me their most popular flavor, Sparkling Kiwi Guava to try.
However, what works for some people, doesn’t necessarily mean that it works for me. I personally didn’t love the taste of it. So I couldn’t finish the product and therefore couldn’t feel the effects before my workout. I had a few sips. Perhaps I’d vibe with some of their other flavors, but this kiwi guava one wasn’t a hit for me. If you’ve tried Celsius and love it, let me know in the comments.
Hope you guys enjoyed a few of these product reviews. As always, all opinions are my own and I hope you found these helpful.
