I recently moved into a new place and we all know how stressful moving can be! So when I received my March Good Being box, it was perfect timing and felt like a nice little house warming gift! One of the many reasons I love this subscription box is because I get to try brands that I am not familiar with or whose products I have yet to try. This month’s box was no exception and featured 5 products by brands I’ve never tried. Before I get into the goods, here’s everything you need to know about the Good Being subscription box (if you are already familiar, keep scrolling to check out the goods!):
COST: Mini Box (US) $9.95/month (2 products) International $15.95
Standard Box (US) $24.95/month (4-5 products) International $33.95
Save $36 off of an ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP when you pay in full.
FEATURES: 4-5 Health, Beauty, Natural Wellness, and Lifestyle products delivered straight to your door.
HOW IT DIFFERS FROM OTHER SUB BOXES: 1.) You get to choose 1-2 products every month. 2.) You can choose between a beauty box and a lifestyle box. 3.) Included in each box is a MEMBER ONLY SPECIAL OFFERS card which includes discount codes on the items you received, in case you want to repurchase, as well as other brands that weren’t included in your specific box. I’ve seen member discount codes as generous as 50% off!
Now that you know the details, let’s check out the products!
Art of Naturals Black Peel Off Mask received full size: 2.4 oz $13: Am I late to the masking party or what?! It’s my first time using a peel off mask, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but it wasn’t as tricky to peel off as I had anticipated or read it would be. Let me start off by saying if you are sensitive to scents, this one may be too strongly scented for you. I wouldn’t say I’m extremely sensitive to masks with a scent, but in my opinion this one was strongly scented and it doesn’t state what the scent is but my guess would be that it is synthetic. That doesn’t necessarily mean it’s bad, but just something to keep in mind. I happen to be sensitive to synthetic scents, so that’s likely why I was put off by it. I can’t say I was blown away by this mask, but as a busy mom, I like the fact that it is already to go–no need to mix in water to create the mask. It is supposed to brighten, purify, hydrate and provide more supple and smooth skin which I didn’t notice after the first use. Possible requires multiple uses, I’m not sure, but since I have other masks that I adore, I will not be replenishing this one once I finish it.
Bedrock Balm Redness Rescue received sample size $3.66/full size 1 oz $22: This balm is thick and white, so not the type of balm I typically reach for especially because I don’t typically have distressed, red skin that would benefit from it, but my teething 8 month old does–on his booty! The thick balm has been working great to soothe some redness on his behind from diarrhea from teething. It is supposed to be a “one-and-done” skin balm that can be used on all parts of the body to soothe, relive redness and help skin get back into balance. It smells of lavender but the formula also includes calendula, chamomile and vitamin E. (contains Beeswax)
Shea Radiance Black Soap Body Cleanser received 59ml $5/full size 16 oz $18: Having just finished my latest bottle of body wash, this one came at the perfect time. I like that the scent is a subtle scent of essential oils, so it isn’t too over powering or intrusive. It provides a nice lather and can be used on the body, face and hair. I have yet to use it on my face or hair (not sure that I will either), but enjoyed it as a body wash. It left my skin feeling clean without feeling stripped. It is supposed to also leave your skin brightened and toned, but I can’t say that I’ve noticed that in the few times I’ve used it. Additionally, I like that it is relatively affordable and very accessible. You can purchase it on Amazon and find it in stores like Walmart.
Emani Lipgloss in Star Struck received full size 7ml $16: I love a good lip gloss to toss in my bag or car for quick applications, so getting to try a new gloss by a brand that I have yet to try was fun. I was pleasantly surprised by this one because in the tube it appears very sparkly, which I am definitely not a fan of. But once applied, the shimmer is barley even noticeable. On me, the shade is a gorgeous coral which is a favorite, and provides just enough color to brighten my face. The gloss is the perfect consistency. Let it be known that I am not a fan of sticky lip gloss, and this one is by no means sticky by it does have some grip if that makes sense, which is nice because it allows the gloss to stay on the lips a tad longer. My lips are left feeling moisturized and soft. All in all, I’m loving it and have been reaching for it a ton since receiving it! (VEGAN)
Bella Pierre Cosmetics Mineral Blush in Suede received 4g $20/full size 9g $45: Although it is technically not full-sized product, 4 g of blush it’s a ton of product, so in my book this counts as full size (the 3rd in this month’s box). On my medium tan skin the color is a dusty rose color that works great for everyday wear, not to subtle and adds just enough color to finish off a classic daytime look. I tend to be a fan of more matte blushes, so i liked the fact that this one doesn’t have any shimmer–which can sometimes settle into fine lines. It also has an SPF of 15 for those who want the extra protection!
Lots of full-sized goodies and as always such a great value! Love the variety of products included in the box as well, some makeup, some skincare and even something for the baby. Time to break it down and see what a great deal the March box was! OK so the value of the box was $58, as always you received more than double what you paid for the box and 2 full sized products (or 3,if like me, you count the ginormous blush)!
