Although I'm terrible for falling off the horse when it comes to health and fitness, it's something I take an interest and one day maybe I will be able to get 100% serious about it. So when I saw the Hip and Healthy box for £9.95 I jumped on the chance. Unfortunately this is now sold out, which is annoying as I had wanted to get a review up a few weeks ago, but my box was lost in the post and had to be re-sent :(

The box came with a mixture of food, beauty, supplements and vitamins. An extra little surprise was a leaflet with recipes and 10%-20% discount for almost all of the items in the box!

Jax Coconut Water

I LOVE coconut water, it tastes delicious and fresh. This came in a glass bottle which made it seem very fancy. Unfortunately the nearest place I can get it is in Edinburgh, but I'm not too fussed as at £13.50 for 250ml, it seems awful expensive. Still tasted good though!

Bounce Protein Bar

I've had these before so I gave this to Scott, who said it tasted like coconut truffles. The one I tried was the Peanut Butter, which I found extremely hard to chew, but Scott said this one was fine!

Rude Health Granola

When I first poured this into a bowl it seemed like hardly anything, but I found it so filling I could barely finish it! It didn't taste much different from any other granola I tried, but I noticed there are a few delicious flavours and the price isn't bad!

Teapigs Matcha Tea

A high concentration of green tea, match's really packs a punch and it full of antioxidants. This sachet was two servings, which i forgot and put into one very green, very strong cup >.< However it tasted nice and gave me a little pick me up after a long shift.

Together Health Multi Vitamin and Mineral Food Suppliment

I expected these to be little round pills, but they're actually capsules of powder. They smell a bit like dog biscuits, but unlike a lot of capsules they don't have a gross plastic taste like some and don't stick to your tongue. I'm awful at keeping up with what I eat and as a vegetarian I do think multi vitamins are something I should take!

Aduna Baobab Fruit Pulp Powder

I put this sachet into the granola and it had a lovely fruity taste. A source of many nutrients, its an delicious source of fibre and vitamins. It came with a leaflet filled with interesting facts about Baobab!

Organic Superblends Energise Sachet

This supplement I mixed with yogurt, and I couldn't believe how much was in the tiny packet! It had a sharp taste, similar to cinnamon and really helped to wake me up on my 5am bus journey!

Nourish Illuminating Face Shimmer

Although this is a for all over the face, I don't like shimmer so use it as a highlighter instead. It has a good staying power and smells naturally sweet.

Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm

This balm removes make up with ease and it gentle on the skin. As it says it leave the skin feeling soft and clean, so I just need to add a light moisturiser and I'm good to go!

Neom Complete Bliss Hand Cream

My nail bed and cuticles are always dry and torn, regardless of weekly manicures and cuticle oil. I always forget to use hand cream regularly, so this has been in my handbag to encourage use when rummaging around! It sinks in quickly and leaves my hands feeling soft, but not greasy.

Virgin Active 1 Day Health Pass

This is a lovely addition to the beauty box, but unfortunately the nearest place I could use it is in Glasgow or Edinburgh , which is a 2 hour journey!

I was really impressed with this Beauty Box and I'm finding it difficult to choose what to repurchase first! I think I will get the Multivitamins and either the Baobab or Superblends sachets, as well as the granola seeing as it is pretty cheap! Have any of you tried the above products? What did you think of them?
