Glowing Beet’s One Year Anniversary Box

I can’t believe Glowing Beet’s is a year old…say what?!   I’m so grateful to have been a part of this amazing company since the beginning.  I love the mission of what they’re about and the quality of products they bring every month.  This box is great no matter where you’re at in your green journey.  As a seasoned green beauty enthusiast, I still get excited each month to see what’s in the box.  It’s one of a kind and I’m so happy to celebrate their first birthday!  Of course they pulled out all the stops on this one-some serious green beauty loot in this month’s box.  Read on to learn more about Glowing Beets monthly subscription.

Why Glowing Beets?  Well, for starters they include high quality indie brands and they make it so simple.  Their website alone is so easy to navigate and browse.  They have one box, it’s $29.95-a steal for high end green beauty products.  The boxes are all the same, but may vary slightly.  For ex. some boxes may get a different lipstick color, but they’re all from the same brand.  All boxes are shipped at the end of the month once you’re a subscriber, and if you order during the month it will be shipped out within a few days, up until the 15th of the month.  You can sign up for one box, otherwise you will be billed monthly.

I love the concept of Glowing Beets for those who are new to the green beauty scene.  They give you a good selection of products, so you’re able to test them out without making a big commitment at first.  They also offer special discounts to those brands if you do like them-how cool is that?!  Glowing Beets does the research for the best products so you don’t have too.  They include a card in each box that lists what the products are.

So let’s get on with the review of this month’s goodies!

LILFOX Mystic Awakening Rosemary Toning Mist- (vegan/cruelty free & gluten free)

I was so jazzed to see LILFOX in this month’s box!  I have tested and reviewed LILFOX in the past and loved their quality and commitment to ingredients.  This toning mist is the perfect mist post cleanse before serums or oils.  It offers a bit of hydration but nothing overwhelming.  My skin feels dewy and balanced after application.  It smells of subtle rosemary and it’s so refreshing.  Can we talk about their packaging?!  So on point.  Their products are packed in amethyst glass to help preserve the contents, and protect the biodiversity of the formula.  Swoon!  A great addition to anyone’s daily skincare routine.  $40

LILFOX Maracuja+Rose Youthful Vixen Face Nectar- (vegan/cruelty free & gluten free)

Ohh this nectar is so good!  First off I love that the scent is so subtle, just a hint of rose.  I prefer face oils to be mild in the scent department and this one is perfect.  I applied it right after the Rosemary Toning Mist and it was divine.  My skin drank it up and there was no oily residue left over- can I get an amen?!  I love when oils/serums settle into the skin and not just sit on top.  This one gives my skin the hydration it needs but no greasiness.  I dig it!  I woke up with happy, plump skin.  It was the perfect oil before makeup application too.  This is a great facial oil for anyone-top notch ingredients, subtle smell and perfect absorption, the formula is legit.  It’s also safe during pregnancy.  $40

ShopKnotty Glowing Beets Anniversary Bracelet-

This is too cute!  I was swooning over this bracelet when I saw it.  First off rose gold is so hot right now!  The bracelet is so dainty and perfect for the wrist.  It has a small pendant with the Glowing Beet’s logo on it.  Such a perfect gift for Glowing Beet’s first birthday celebration!  As always with most jewelry be careful to avoid water and soaps to preserve it.  $34

Prim Botanicals Perfume Oil in Mademoiselle Swell-

Love finding new green beauty perfumes, so I was so excited to see this perfume roller ball in the box.  Made of pure essentials oils, this perfume smells like sweet and floral.  It’s not too overwhelming at all, which I love.  With notes of French neroli, Egyptian jasmine, Sicilian lemon and Himalayan Cedarwood.  This is the perfect size to throw in a purse and reapply throughout the day.  The best thing about it?  It actually lasted!  If you’ve been in green beauty long enough you know that natural scents don’t last long-you’re lucky if you get a couple of hours out of it!  This lasted well into the afternoon-I was shocked!  If you’ve been looking for a natural scent but haven’t found one, this may just be your ticket.  A nice clean sweet scent that actually lasts!  $42

Jacq’s Organics Hibiscus & Aloe Bath Bomb-

Talk about good timing for a bath bomb!  This mama needed her spa night and this was just the ticket to get me relaxing.  I dropped this bath bomb into the bath and it released it’s goodness.  My skin felt so soft and smooth.  The scents of juniper and geranium gave my mood a boost.  I truly felt so relaxed!  The Aloe Vera really helped to seal in the moisture.  I love the dried hibiscus pedals in the bath bomb-such a nice touch.  Often people think of bath bombs as an extra frivalty but in my opinion things like this almost become a necessity when they calm your senses and create a spa atmosphere right in your bathroom.  Why not love on your self a little?  I know as a mom it’s a must for me to take some time to just breathe and treat myself to something.  This bath bomb is just the thing I needed-highly recommend!  $5

    Self care is a necessity. As a mom, we do have a tendency to take care of everyone else before taking care of ourselves. It’s natural but I’m so happy to see that our bath bomb helped. ????
