It is a great perk of blogging to receive packages and special shipments almost daily. At this point, my FedEx delivery guy probably wishes he could get a new route, and my kids don’t even look up when the doorbell rings every evening.
But let me tell you…when I found out what BabbleBoxx was sending me this month, I all but sat by the door waiting for the box to arrive. From a DNA kit to a fancy hair system to a face cream, it felt as if the brands and products were picked just for me. So let’s dig in together!
23andMe Saliva Collection Kit
What does your DNA say about you? This is an awesome way to find out. (I shipped my kit out for processing and since it takes a few weeks to get the results, I’ll come back and edit this post to let you know what I learned!)
The 23andMe DNA Test can give you details about your family history (including ancestry composition, maternal and paternal lineage and more), your wellness (caffeine consumption, lactose intolerance, muscle composition, etc.) as well as your unique traits, carrier status (super helpful if you are hoping to have kids) and more. In fact, you receive more than 65 personalized genetic reports, and it’s really easy to take the sample.
Basically: spit and send. All of the postage is prepaid and the box comes with the kit.
Simply Sensitive Summer’s Eve® Cleansing Cloths
Listen, let’s agree to get the giggles out of the way now, OK? I’ll admit. It makes me a little wiggly to type feminine hygiene products into a post, but here’s the REAL DEAL: I have had two kids. I work out a lot. I’m a woman approaching the age of 40. My hormones don’t even know what is happening.
These Summer’s Eve cleansing cloths are amazing.
They’re lightly fragranced — it’s very subtle — and they quickly wipe away odor-causing bacteria. The cloths are all individually packaged and made with a very gentle formula, so it won’t irritate sensitive skin. And they’re so small that they’re easy to keep in a purse or gym bag.
Ultimate Flora™ Extra Care Probiotic Go Pack 50 Billion
Speaking of bacteria, whereas the stinky ones are no good, there are actually 100 TRILLION bacteria of diverse strains in your digestive tract alone, and those little buggers are important for a healthy gut and your overall digestive health. Ultimate Flora probiotics provide up to 200 billion live probiotic cultures per serving and up to 40 scientifically studied probiotic strains to promote digestive balance and support immune health.*
You take these delayed-release vegetable capsules once a day, and they can help make sure that more friendly probiotics reach your intestinal tract. That can make for a happy, healthy gut!

Lancer’s Intensive Night Treatment
YOU GUYS. This stuff may be made of magic. It’s soft, silky, makes my skin glow and I will be buying more once this sample is gone.
It’s technically an anti-aging cream, but I’m more interested in the hydrating agents (including Hylaplex® and marula oil) which provide a moisture barrier that helps skin look smoother and plumper. I know “more radiant” sounds like a sales-y phrase but that’s exactly how I felt when I started using this cream.
It’s developed by Beverly Hills-based and globally renowned dermatologist Dr. Harold Lancer and really is a Celebrity skin cream. And if you are a new customer, you can use the code bestskin for 10% off your first order.
illumai Biome Care System for Hair
This is a 3-part system that cleanses, nurtures and protects your hair. Like science? Me too. The products were developed by a globally recognized immunology and genetic scientist, to gently work with our hair and scalp’s naturally brilliant system to clean, nurture, rebalance and protect the hair, using clean formulas with Simply 7 key ingredients.
No sulfates, no silicones, no parabens, no preservatives, no plasticizers, gluten-free, nut-free, 100% vegan and cruelty-free (PETA certified) PLUS, it’s 100% color safe.
It’s super concentrated, so a little really does go a long way (something I learned the first time I used it — you really do work the product into a lather and if you use too much, you’ll find yourself covered in the stuff!).
If you purchase either the travel pack or the Essential System before November 30, 2016, you can use the code 87-KATYWIDRICK for 40% off!
