Goodebox Review

I recently received a beauty box from Goodbeing (formerly Goodebox).  I was so excited!  A green beauty box created just for me-I couldn’t wait to unbox all the goodies!  Now you may be asking what is Goodbeing?  Well, allow me to explain.  Goodbeing is a premium discovery & trial service providing expertly curated, healthy beauty products, non-toxic cosmetics, natural wellness & sustainable, toxin-free living goods.  Sounds amazing huh?!  Well, it is.

Here’s how it works-

-You sign up and choose what plan works for you.  One time, Monthly, multi-months or every other month.  A one time purchase starts at $21 and after that it gets cheaper if you bundle more months together.  For example, if you sign up for 3 months, you’ll pay $60-so $20 per box instead of $21.

-Once you decide what plan you want, then you fill out your member profile.  Each box is customized according to your profile.  This is the part I love.  So if you don’t like lavender, there won’t be lavender in your box!  Pretty cool!

-Then once you’ve done all that, you’ll receive your box within the first 14 days of the month with 4-5 trial sized products.  When you receive your box, you’ll get a card talking about each product and how to use it.

-Once you’ve received your box you will get special offers and discounts for all the products found in the box.  So if you really like the lip gloss in your box, you can get 20% off of it.

Why I love it??

It’s not a super expensive box.  Most people can spend $21 a month on a beauty box.  Goodbeing gives you a great opportunity to test out clean products you might not normally.  For example, there were brands I hadn’t even heard of in my recent box.  I love that!  Not only that but I receive discounts to purchase the full size products or other products they offer.  I also like the fact that each box is customized.  You don’t end up with product you wouldn’t use or fragrance you might not like, etc.  Another cool feature of Goodbeing is that they focus on not just clean beauty, but also wellness products and sustainable living products.

Ok, so now that you know all about Goodbeing, let’s talk about the loot I received in my October box.

My Konjac Sponge-

71ugAQo6w3L._SY355_

I was a little skeptical when I saw that I had received a konjac sponge.  I had tried others in the past and didn’t like them.  But I was hoping for a different experience with this one and that’s exactly what I got.  This isn’t your average konjac sponge-it’s so much better!  When I looked into it further I noticed My Konjac Sponge had several different varieties of konjac sponges and the one I got was French Red Clay-which is great for dry/mature and sensitive skin types.   I used it in conjunction with my cleanser and it helped to clean and exfoliate at the same time.  Other konjac sponges were too harsh in the past, but the My Konjac French Red Sponge brings the perfect amount of exfoliation.  When you get a konjac sponge it’s hard, but then you get it wet and it softens completely into a sponge like loofah.  Konjac is actually made of a porous root vegetable, and are touted for being great at removing dirt, oil and blackheads.  The fibers of the sponge help to dislodge the dirt.  I loved the My Konjac Sponge because it wasn’t too harsh of an exfoliation.  I felt I could use it everyday because it was more mild.  It gave a great smoothness to my skin too.  If you are like me and favor a more gentle exfoliation, then the French Red Clay Konjac Sponge would be perfect for you.  They also offer other Konjac sponges for varying skin types or if you prefer a deeper exfoliation.  $10

Lillian Eve Cuticle Oil Pen-

Cuticle-Oil-Pen-alt3-247x300

When I saw that I got this Lillian Eve Cuticle Pen I was pretty stoked!  I hate when my cuticles are dry looking, and this is the perfect solution for that.  Best of all I can take it anywhere and not have to risk it spilling because it comes in a convenient pen.  Just brush it on your cuticles and rub in.  It only has four simple ingredients too!  I love putting this on before doing my nails.  After I put it on, it’s so much easier to push my cuticles back because my cuticles are soft.  I noticed I wasn’t getting hang nails as much either because my cuticles were so hydrated.  You all need this!  Plus, what a great stocking stuffer for Christmas.  Lillian Eve also carries a ton of non-toxic nail polishes, hand creams and nail polish removers-you’re one stop shop for nails!  $12

EO Coconut Lemon Hand Sanitizer Spray-

Who doesn’t need hand sanitizer??  Since we know the mainstream stuff is filled with junk, grabbing something more natural is a no brainer.  I love that this comes in spray form.  So easy to just spray on my hands, but also on other things I’m wanting to disinfect.  I noticed myself spraying it on shopping carts at the store or cleaning my steering wheel with it.  Oh and bonus, it smells good!  Coconut and lemon are definitely a winning combination.  I also took this with me on a recent trip, and the little size was perfect for travel.  I especially loved it for my daughter.  Since she’s only 16 months it’s hard sometimes to get her hands to put hand sanitizer on them but with the spray it makes it so much more convenient.  Another great stocking stuffer!  EO also carries a ton of other products.  Anything from body oils to deodorant.  $2.99

Bonnie Ultra Shine Lip Gloss-

I had never heard of Bonnie products before getting the box.  But I’m so glad it was in there!  This is definitely one of my favorite lip gloss formulas.  It isn’t sticky or goopy at all, but goes on so smooth.  The name says it all-it is an “Ultra Shine” gloss.  I really loved the color Garnet I received too.  More of a brick red, perfect for fall.  The ingredients are amazing as well- no synthetics, just the pure stuff.  It also has a peppermint smell, which I love.  The gloss layered perfect over my lip liners and lipsticks too for more of a pop.  They have it in two other colors.  You can’t beat the price either!  $8, is a steal.  Bonnie also carries body products, candles and fragrance.

Hamadi Shea Spray-

Hamadi was another brand I had never heard of before but was so excited to try out.  In this box I received the Shea Spray which is similar to a shine spray.  It isn’t like traditional shine sprays that can actually end up damaging the hair.  It’s nourishing and hydrating for the hair with ingredients like aloe, avocado and shea butter. I was concerned it would be too much for my fine hair but I was mistaken!  It actually didn’t weigh down my hair at all.  I sprayed a few sprays on before blowdrying to help hydrate hair, and after I was done I sprayed some more on to calm fly aways.  It gave my hair a great shine and really brought out the highlights, and color of my hair.  I also love how it doesn’t leave my hair crispy at all like some shine products have in the past.  It really does it’s job quite well!  This would be especially great for those with curly, frizzy or coarse hair.  Hamadi also carries a ton of other hair products that I definitely want to check out!  $16

That sums up my review of the Goodbeing box.  I highly recommend you guys check them out!  A great clean and affordable beauty/wellness box.  Have any of you guys heard of it or subscribed?  I’ve teamed up with the Goodbeing to offer one lucky reader a free October box-(what I just reviewed for you)!  Check out my Instagram @gurlgonegreen for all the details.
