Resistance Band Workout Kit from (Review)

Disclaimer: This review is of my own personal experience. I was not contacted by nor am I associated with I purchased this product with my own funds and am just sharing my experiences as a consumer. Your experience may differ from mine. 

A few years ago, on a Christmas Eve, I was at my mother-in-law’s house and my sister’s-in-law were talking about this app called Wish. They were talking about how you can get some really cool stuff for really cheap. The skeptic in me was, “Yeah right. It’s probably all junk.” Well, I ended up downloading the app and looking at what I could possibly get from this app.  As I was looking around I saw some things that I might want to get but for the most part I was still pretty skeptical.

I’m big on reading reviews of other consumers so I started reading what people were saying regarding their purchases. I quickly figured out that most, if not all, of the items came from China. This wasn’t a big deal for me since, in all reality, most if not all of the products we purchase at the store come from a different country.

The two top concerns of consumers are that it takes a long time to get what you purchase and there are sizing issues for most of the clothes. Let’s face it a size 2X in the United States may be an 8X in China. You just have to be cautious about the differences in sizing. This is the same for stores here in the United States in that store: Awesome’s size Large may be store: Cool’s size 3X. The difference between going to the store and buying online is that you can try on the clothes at a brick-and-mortar store, you can’t do that online. I guess that’s the risk you take when you buy online.

Anyway, I decided to make a few purchases so that I can tell you about my personal experiences with I searched the app for some things that I could possibly use or write about and made the order. In my order was:

  • 1 Women’s Solid Color Long Sleeve Sweater for $10
  • 1 Amazing Touch Finishing Shaver Electric $7
  • 1 New Hot 925 Sterling Silver Moonstone Earrings $1
  • 1 FAN Universal Optical Clip 12x Zoom for Cell Phone $2
  • 1 11pcs/set Resistance Tubes Gym Fitness $14
  • 1 Pair Waterproof Winter/Autumn Gloves $4

My item total came to $38 and my shipping was $21. I had a promo code that deducted $5.90 from my total, which left me with a balance of $53.10. Considering my order was coming from China, I’d say that $21 for shipping was fairly reasonable. My order was placed on December 30, 2017 and 4 out of 6 items said they would be delivered by February 10, 2018. One said by January 29, 2018 and the last said January 30, 2018. The 11pcs resistance bands were scheduled to be delivered by January 29 but I received them today; January 10, 2018. I’m still waiting for the other items to arrive as of today.

The resistance bands came in a white, plastic shipping envelope. Inside the envelope was a black drawstring bag containing the resistance bands and a single (double-sided) sheet of paper that was folded and explained what was in the bag, what each band color meant and how much resistance there is with each band, pictures of how to use the bands and exercises that you can do and what area of the body those exercises target. On the back of the form are product safety and precautions that you should probably read before using the bands. I’ve tried using a couple of them and they seem pretty sturdy. I’ll post updates as I begin to use them more.

One note that I’d like to point out, I paid $14 for the set. After I ordered them I found them for a lower price. You just have to keep looking around on the app because I noticed that they have the same product but for different prices. That’s because different “stores” sell the same product for different prices. This kind of reminded me of Ebay, how there are different sellers selling the same thing for a different price or even Amazon. 

What items, if any, have you purchased from Wish and how was your experience. Please share in the comment section below. We’d love to hear and see your successes or busts.
