There are firsts for everything, and Goodbeing marks my first green beauty box subscription! You fill out an online profile with details about your preferences in makeup, general questions about your skin and hair, and each month a box is shipped to you full of goodies! You even get a sneak peak of a few of the items which you can opt to choose from. In my first box I received:
-Wyld Konjac sponge
-Juice Organics Repairing shampoo
-Juice Beauty Green Apple Cleansing bar
-Gypsy Organics Wildflower Perfume
-Sade Baron Lotion
-Bella Aura Night Renewal Cream
-And bonus: 2 weeks of free Bulldog Yoga
The Wyld French Pink Clay Konjac Sponge is great! Such a simple, gentle way to clean and exfoliate your face – perfect for that last bit of stubborn face makeup. It’s not my first time using a Konjac sponge, but I love it. This one is infused with French Pink Clay – nothing else. It also has a little string attached, which is perfect for hanging in the shower. This is gentle enough for sensitive skin. (Vegan)
The Juice Organics Shampoo smells really nice! It also lathers surprisingly well. This shampoo leaves my hair feeling clean and untangled, it’s made with coconut and soy proteins, aloe, borage seed oil, and grape juices. (Vegan)
Juice Beauty Green Apple Cleansing Bar. I was a little surprised this doesn’t smell like green apples! It actually has a mild citrus scent (it’s not detectable once your skin is dry). If you’ve ever used castile soap, this has a very similar feeling on the skin with recyclable cardboard packaging – also, making it travel friendly. It’s made with extra virgin cold pressed olive oil (perhaps why it feels similar to castile soap) and apple, lemon, and aloe juices. (Vegan)
I’m a perfume junkie, no lie. I chose the fragrance Wildflower from Gypsy Organics, a lavender scented offering. It’s definitely very lavender, which I love. It also wears super light, more like a body spray. Personally, I like my perfumes a little more aggressive, so I use this more like aromatherapy when I just want to feel calm post bath. I even spray it on my pillow before bed and let me tell you…THAT is some good sleep! (Vegan)
This time of year calls for more skin hydration, so I chose the Sade Baron Olas Pro-Vitamin B5 Lotion. It’s made with shea butter and avocado oil, but it doesn’t wear heavy or sticky on the skin. It’s actually very fast absorbing. I chose the scent Olas, a light floral (rose and ylang) and it’s very soft and pleasant. I really like this and would purchase a full size! (Vegan)
I feel like I’m always on the hunt for my next favorite in skincare (and let’s be honest, there are SO many amazing options to choose from) so I was delighted to receive the Bella Aura Skincare Night Cellular Renewal. It claims to improve hydration, firmness, elasticity, and smoothness, as well as brightening and making the skin look more plump. Upon the first application, I was delighted by the scent. It’s hard to describe…perhaps the bitter orange contained in the formula? Either way, my skin loves this stuff! It immediately drinks it up, and in the morning I wake up with soft glowing skin. More time will be the deciding factor for how well it lives up to it’s claims, however I immediately loved how my skin felt. This is also full size purchase worthy for me. (Contains beeswax)
Last but not least, the 2 weeks of free yoga complimentary of Bulldog Yoga. They offer 4 types of classes:
-Activate, a more traditional yoga class with upbeat music
-Invigorate, adds in resistance bands and some plyometrics
-Exhilarate, Invigorate on steroids (think higher intensity)
-& Bulldog bites, 20-25 minute classes for those days you’re on the go
I am actually really excited about using this to work on post-baby mom-bod! I’ve missed yoga, so being able to do it from home is awesome. Also their monthly subscription prices are very affordable!
Total value of this months box: $94.09
Monthly subscription price: $24.95/mo.
