Crio BRU COFFEE ALTERNATIVE

May 21, 2019 No Comments

Recently I was gifted some products from my lovely friends over at Crio Brü and since I’ve had them for over a week now, I’ve had a chance to really try them and their benefits.

What is Crio Brü? They are a company that sells coffee alternatives made from 100% roasted cocoa beans. There is no sugar, no gluten, no dairy and no fillers in their products and it’s filled to the brim with anti-oxidants, minerals and energy. Crio Brü have stated that their products contain “a natural stimulant called theobromine which is gentle, long-lasting and non-addictive.”

I was lucky enough to choose some of the products I wanted to try, and of course, I headed straight for the Lunar Latte and the Velvet Latte. Duh. Who doesn’t want pink or purple drinks? These two are absolutely phenomenal and I can’t recommend these two products enough.

The Lunar Latte is made up of chamomile, lavender, passionflower, purple carrots and Reishi mushroom – it definitely sounds like an odd combination, but these ingredients mixed together create the perfect pre bed drink to get you into that sleepy state. Personally, I suffer from insomnia and restlessness, especially at night time, and after trying this for a week, I can definitely say that this has helped put my mind at ease before bed and help me sleep.

Did you know that the Lunar Latte gets it’s purple colour from the anthocyanins (antioxidants) found in the purple carrot?

Velvet Latte is made up of beetroot, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, black pepper and whilst the peppers may make you turn your head and not want to try it… all I can say is, it doesn’t taste like pepper and it’s really delicious. I was a bit hesitant with this one when I read all the ingredients, but once I tasted it, a chai flavour erupted in my mouth and I was in heaven. Now, this one is packed full of goodness, the web page for the Velvet Latte states that “Beetroot is brilliant for detoxification, boosting energy and stamina, and lowering blood pressure. Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium (vital for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas). Beets also contain the B vitamin folate.”

Along with the superfood lattes, I was given one of their main products, the Cavalla – and it literally tastes like chocolate goodness; but healthy. Who would have thought that chocolate can be healthy? It has hints of coconut and cinnamon, but they are very subtle. Honestly, I hate coconut, and I couldn’t even taste it – bonus! This was delicious with a dash of milk and some biscuits.

One product I was given, I had heard about and seen in my local shops – Rooibos tea. I’d heard that this product was great for vitamin c and anti-oxidants, so when I received the Red Espresso, I was excited to try this as it was always something I was hesitant to try. This one, I have definitely had more than once and it’s also my partners favourite out of everything I was gifted, so it’s nearly all finished. Surprisingly, it has 5x more anti-oxidants than green tea and it has no additives, no GMOs, no caffeine and no sugar – that is amazing for myself as I don’t do well with caffeine, sugar and I need all the anti-oxidants I can get.

Lastly, the Pumpkin Spice which was definitely not what I was expecting! I didn’t think I would like it, but I was pleasantly surprised as I tasted spicy hints, almost like a chai latte. This product is described as “rich, warm, all-natural cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves blended with premium, chocolaty cocoa grounds” – which is definitely correct!

Overall, I’m super happy with all of these products, and I will definitely be ordering more when I run out of my favourites in the future – and I’m also keen to try out some of the other products, like the other superfood lattes. I just can’t resist those pretty colours.

I was lucky to be given a promotion code to use for the rest of May – so if you wan’t to head over and buy something (they sell samples, too), then don’t forget to chuck in code “BO10” for 10% off your order – I do not receive anything in return or gain commission if you use this code, it’s purely because I love these products and want to share it with my followers.

  • I’m someone who suffers with chronic headaches and I always wondered why... so about a week ago I got my hands on a pair of @baxterblue_ non prescription glasses to filter out the blue light in technology I use, like my phone, laptop and even my tv 👀

Since using these every day, I have definitely noticed a change in how often I have headaches. I’d say it’s dropped by about 70% which is AMAZING 💥

My favourite part about having these glasses is that for every single pair purchased, Baxter Blue donate a pair to @restoringvision so that someone in need has a pair of much needed glasses 👓

I am wearing the limited edition pair Finch in baby pink 😌 *gifted
  • Power to the FUPA 🔥 I cant even tell you how many imperfections I have... like, I have a lot. But when you think about it, and I mean truly think about it... why do those imperfections matter? The social construct of having a perfect body is nothing more than a marketing gimmick. You are worth much more than that and your true beauty is your personality, and when that shines through, you are beautiful no matter what ❤️ I’m showing off my FUPA to raise awareness about how cute lil hanging tums and fatty pubic areas are ☺️ What do you want to bring attention to?
  • I’m still loving my @everydaylingerieco undies so I thought I’d post another photo and share my discount code with you all 🥰

I wear mine every day and I’m absolutely in love with them. Literally the comfiest undies I have ever owned ❤️
  • Comfortable AND pretty. What more can I ask for? Thank you @fullbloomlingerie for making gorgeous bralettes for bigger busts ❤️ #fullbloomlingerie have just expanded their sizing to include sizes 18 and 20!!! Yay for bigger sizes 🤩
  • Stretch marks are sometimes very hard to accept. They come out of nowhere and they don’t really go away (unless you have procedures done) 👀

Have you ever wondered why society thinks stretch marks are so wrong?

There really is no reason as to why they have such negativity behind them - it’s just another stupid beauty standard that has been ingrained in our brains from a young age 😴

I say no more. Stretch marks are beautiful. They are a sign of life, of change, of happiness. Let’s swing that negative mindset into a positive one and start embracing small things about ourselves ❤️
  • Lots of my flaws are showing in this photo, but you know what? I totally love it 👏🏻 Feeling incredible next to all of these amazing women I met at the launch shoot at @everydaylingerieco ❤️ ELC has sizes 8-22 now available on the website in briefs, g-string and boyshorts 😍 #everydaylingerieco
  • I was fortunate enough to be apart of the launch photoshoot of @everydaylingerieco ❤️ It was such an amazing experience and definitely pushed my mental space into the right direction.

Everyday Lingerie Co is definitely on the right track with their morals and their products. Everyday woman in everyday lingerie. It’s such an amazing concept that has been bought to life - and it’s something I am very passionate about: all bodies are good bodies 🥰

These undies are so incredibly comfortable. Ever since the shoot a couple of weeks ago, I’ve literally only worn the #everydaylingerieco undies and oh man, no weird rubbing, no wedgies, no uncomfy feeling... they’re amazing.

Thank you @everydaylingerieco and congratulations Danielle for the launch of your inspiring brand. I see you will change a lot of people’s lives and I hope you continue to be amazing and do amazing things ❤️ The website is NOW LIVE so you can go and get yourself some comfy undies 🤤
