They say, “New Year, New You,” and most of us look to the new year as a time to refocus and set our fitness paths on the straight and narrow. This month I was fortunate enough to test and give myself some mind/body love thanks to some amazing products from Babble Boxx.
Aeropex from AfterShokz
Given the chaos of the last couple months, walking has been imperative to my sanity and my fitness. But let’s be honest, what good is a sweat sesh without amazing tunes? The AfterShokz Aeropex headphones have been a life saver! Unlike traditional headphones, these rest outside the ear, and use bone conduction to produce sound. They’re lightweight, sweatproof and have an eight-hour battery life!

Refreshing Face Wash, 10% AHA Essential Renewal Lotion and Essential Facial Moisturizer from Alpha Skin Care
If you’re anything like me, taking care of your skin is just as important as taking care of your body. I always love trying new products and changing things up a bit. With these products from Alphas Skin Care I was able to try three new lotions and potions from this line and here are my thoughts:
Step 1 – Refreshing Face Wash: This face wash is super gentle, soap free, and uses Citric Alpha Hydroxy Acid to remove dirt, oil, makeup and impurities. It restores skin’s PH balance, and leaves it feeling super smooth.
Step 2 – 10% AHA Essential Renewal Lotion: This lotion is key if you’re resolution this year is to look younger. It uses 10% Glycolic Alpha Hydrox to gently remove dead skin cells, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, revealing a fresher, younger you! If that weren’t enough to get you pumped for this product, it also helps support collagen production and evens skin tone and texture.
Step 3 – Essential Facial Moisturizer: Finish this complexion perfecting routine with a shot of moisture! The Essential Facial Moisturizer is specially formulated with the optimal balance of Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins B and E and Aloe Vera to leave skin feeling healthy and soft while also helping to prevent the appearance of lines and wrinkles. All this skin goodness AND free of parabens and fragrances means even those with sensitive skin will be loving the way they look!

The American Youth Sports Pledge from The National Endowment for Youth Sports (NEYS)
We all know that youth sports not only improve kid’s health, they also improve self-esteem, creativity and psychological wellbeing. That’s why NEYS is on a mission to make sports accessible for all youth in America! Their 2020 resolution is to raise more than $100 million to provide annual and ongoing grants for youth sports programs.
I was excited to see that my Babble Boxx contained directions on how to make the American Youth Sports Pledge and help NEYS spread the word! For me the importance of youth sports is a no-brainer, so this was definitely an added bonus to my boxx.

Organic MCT Oil and Organic MCT Powder from Nutiva
While I may not be hopping on the keto band wagon, I can’t deny the benefits of MCT, and was excited to try these two products from Nutiva:
Nutiva Organic MCT Oil: Made from organic coconuts, Nutiva Organic MCT Oil is concentrated with medium-chain triglycerides, capric acid and caprylic acid to provide clean energy, boost metabolism and enhance mental clarity.
Nutiva Organic MCT Powder: Also made from organic coconuts, the MCT Powder ensures that the quality fats blend perfectly into any beverage. It also contains prebiotic acacia fiber, and a small amount of tapioca maltodextrin. The powder comes in five delicious flavors: Turmeric, Vanilla, Chocolate,

Stomach Settle Drops from UpSpring
For me, tummy trouble is an annoying issue. So, I was excited to try UpSpring’s Stomach Settle Drops when I experienced a tummy ache. They’re natural and fast-acting, and are designed for pregnancy nausea relief, motion sickness relief as well as general nausea, gas, and bloating. I’m happy to say that after just one use, my post-holiday tummy troubles were gone, leaving me feeling like my usual self and ready to try my workouts again.
