5 Hour Energy and Living Beyond Breast Cancer Blog Review #5HourGoesPink #ad @5HourEnergy


As a member of Smiley360, I was given an opportunity to join a new Smiley mission for 5 Hour Energy.  I was sent a kit that included two 5 Hour Energy products and information/sharing guide for free.  All opinions in the following review are 100% my own.


5 Hour Energy (Living Essentials) is donating to Living Beyond Breast Cancer from the sales of their limited edition pink ribbon 5 Hour Energy drinks.  “Now through December 31, 2014, Living Essentials will donate five cents from the sale of every specially marked bottle of Pink Lemonade flavored 5 Hour Energy to Living Beyond Breast Cancer.  LBBC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to connecting people with trusted breast cancer information and a community support.  The minimum guaranteed donation is $200,000.”


I love that 5 Hour Energy is doing this.  My step-dad’s mom was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years ago.  She is a fighter and is a survivor.  Breast cancer hits close to home to me as it does with many others.  I don’t drink 5 Hour Energy all the time but I do drink it every once in a while.  I actually keep some in the cupboard so the next time I pick some up, I will get some more of the Pink Lemonade Pink Ribbon bottles!

A little about 5 Hour Energy – The claims are that it gives you 5 hours of energy, it’s sugar free, only 4 calories, and no sugar crash.  I have never experienced anything like a sugar crash or anything like it later in the day after drinking it.  The results may not be the same for everyone.  They do give me a burst of energy.  I feel normal, it’s not like they make me wired or anything.  When I drink them, I normally add half a bottle to my morning coffee and I’m good to go.  I have a hard time waking or feeling awake in the morning even after getting 7 to 8 hours of sleep.  Not all the time though.  This product contains caffeine comparable to a cup of premium coffee and you should not exceed more than two bottles a day.  Keep them away from kids because they are for adults only!

So this was the first time trying Pink Lemonade flavor.  I normally just have the regular 5 Hour Energy that I put in my coffee.  I never thought 5 Hour Energy was the greatest tasting which is why I add it to my coffee.  It’s not terrible but not the greatest flavor.  When I first took a drink of the Pink Lemonade I had to make a face.  It is pretty tangy.  At least to me it is.  But that’s okay because I think it tastes better than the regular 5 Hour Energy.  It’s really not bad.  I also noticed the strong pink lemonade smell as soon as I opened it. 

Overall, I like it.  It does what I want it too for me and the flavor isn’t bad.  If you are a 5 Hour Energy user, make sure you look for the pink ribbon bottles!

  1. I absolutely love this product. It is a quick and easy fix for those days when I have a lot of things on my to do list but little energy. I am very sensitive to caffeine and energy drinks in general but this one does not make me shake or gives any side effect. I feel alert, focused and ready to take on the world! I actually did not buy this product on Amazon but received a free sample from Smiley. Just wanted to share my opinion for those who consider buying this product.
