The wooden crate is delivered in a cardboard box by FEDEX. The cover slides to reveal all the items. I love the yellow color, it feels quite summery! I love using these boxes as storage under a bed or a desk!

The information card is so pretty, a nice sleek black card.

The card gives us the value of each item in the box.

TRX GO Suspension Training System. This was the spoiler we got only a couple of days before getting the box, and I was so happy to see it! I was eyeing this item for a while and almost bought it for myself a couple of weeks ago. So this box was already a win!

It’s a set of a two-handled straps connected together that you can attach to your door frame (stays in place when you close the doors, so easy to set up anywhere) to be used like a home gym. All you need is your own body weight to get a full workout!

The handles have a nice foam for comfort and come with a loop to be used with your feet. You can easily adjust the length to work with different angles and everything is sturdy and stays in place.

It comes with a door anchor (bottom) and an extra anchor straps so you can use it with a permanent anchor, around a beam, around a tree in a park, etc. I’ve already set it up on my bedroom door and the anchor stays in place even when I open the door (but make sure you close the door before exercising!)

It comes with the instruction to set it up and a simple workout routine. Inside the box, you have a code to access online tutorial and workout videos.

Fresh e Tech Splash Tunes Pro Metallic Limited Edition. A speaker that’ll work in your shower! You can listen to music, to audiobooks or even answer calls.

I’m not sure I REALLY want to answer phone calls while I’m in the shower, it’s weird and the person on the other end would probably wonder what the background noise (water running) is all about! But it can also be used by the swimming pool, the hot tub, on a boat, anywhere where water can be a problem to electronics!

It’s a bluetooth device, so it will work with your phone or your computer. The suction cup is pretty good, but wide. So if you have small tiles, it might not work as well.

The micro-USB charging port is well protected by a thick piece of rubber. It’ll give you about 14 hours of battery.

Corkcicle One. For me, this was the “what is that?” item in this box. It’s a 4-in-1 Wine tool! Once it’s been in the freezer for a while, it turns into a wine chiller, aerator, pourer and stopper!

Of course, it can be used without freezing it first to enjoy the aerator, pourer, and stopper. Especially if, like me, the freezer real estate is Vancouver-like (basically, my freezer is very tiny).

It’s basically a long piece of metal with a hole at the top. Don’t ask me the science behind the aerator, I’m not that kind of scientist and I just like drinking wine (I’m a French gal, I like my wine).

And you have a little cover to close the opening. It’s kind of finicky to open, but it works. We haven’t tried it yet because, as I mentioned previously, my freezer is already full and the corkcicle glass container is quite big.

Serene House Travel Diffuser and Serene House Oil (Lemongrass). Lightweight aromatherapy diffuser, with a very lovely lemongrass oil.

Just fill the reservoir with water and 5-10 drops of essential oils to have a lovely scented mist spreading in your room for 3 hours before the reservoir is empty (6 hours on intermittent mode). My only problem is with the USB cable. It seems that all my electronics these days need a USB charging cable and I’m running out of USB to wall nobs. Can someone please send me a box of USB wall chargers, that would be great! I’m serious, I need a bunch of them. Like these. Please.

By the way, I don’t know if everyone got the same scent, but the lemongrass is awesome! I love it!

Eparé Steel Spring Salt & Pepper Grinder Set. (I’ve linked to a different model of the same kind of grinder). So, one of my grinder is crooked, I know! And it’s annoying! The problem is with the plastic holder where one of the hole is not properly leveled. Nothing worthy of sending it back, but wow is it annoying to look at! And because of the way the grinders are made, it’s better to leave them in their holders when not in use so you don’t put spices everywhere on your table and counters.

There’s a little glass to see the level of spices (let’s be honest: himalayan salt and pepper) in your grinder so you don’t run out when your guests show up!

The mechanism is quite simple. Push the top part and the grinder will move down. So there’s no way to adjust the size of your grind, so my husband the cook is not thrilled about them for cooking, but they are awesome to get your guest to have freshly ground pepper and salt. And they will fit in a lot of kitchens. But still, my plastic base is crooked and I’m annoyed.

My Summer 2018 BREO Box was honestly my favorite so far! Of course, I’m personally biased toward anything fitness related so the TRX set was an awesome addition to this box. I’ve already used it and it’s amazing and will be easy to pack when I’m traveling. In every BREO Box, I’m in love with at least one item, is happy with most and don’t care for one or less items. I’ve never had an overall “meh” BREO box. I love how BREO box manages to keep their box gender neutral and would work for anyone interested in a healthy, but fun, lifestyle, with quality items that cover a wide range of interests. Nicely done!

    Great review! I love Breo Box; wish I could afford to get it more often. I feel your pain about the USB charging problem. You may want to look into getting a charging station/port that allows you to plug in a charge multiple devices at once. I bought one called the Vogek 6-Port USB Charger Desktop Charging Station with Smart Identification on Amazon a couple months ago. It works great and frees up a lot of room on my power strip.

    IMO I’d totally make them fix the wonky base on the grinder. If you wouldn’t buy it that way they shouldn’t expect you to keep it that way. Great review my fridge and freezer are too full for anything except food and wine.
