I love a subscription box that contains a nice mix of lifestyle, beauty, and skincare. And this month’s Good Being box has the perfect combination of these items. But before we check everything out, 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!
Bug Protector Tick Repellant Spray received 2 fl.oz $3.99 (Full size is 8 oz $7.99) I was really happy to see a tick spray in the box because with the summer quickly approaching, I am sure we will be spending even more time outdoors. I have tried some other repellants, but didn’t have anything specifically for ticks or anything in a spray form. The ingredients contain Water, Castor Oil, Glycerin, Vanillin, Sorbitol, Acacia Gum, Soy Lecithin, Xantham Gum, Vitamin E, Citric Acid, Geraniol and Cedarwood oil. For a tick repellant, those ingredients are pretty good, have you seen all the nasty chemicals in most insect repellants? The most common chemical in conventional repellents is DEET, which the EPA claims doesn’t not pose any health risks or toxic effects. Having said that, I do not feel comfortable using repellants with DEET on myself or my children. Without a doubt the natural repellants I have used are not as effective as the conventional ones, but so far I’ve been ok with that. Hoping this one is a winner.
Starfish Project: Socially Responsible Jewelry received earrings $24.99 (Prices range from $19.99-$60) Come on who doesn’t love jewelry? Yeah the answer is nobody, because we all love a little jewelry, especially when it goes to such a great cause. I hadn’t heard of project Starfish until I received my box and found out that they work with exploited women in Asian by providing them and their children with shelter, vocational training, healthcare, educational grants and counseling. I received a pair earrings, but they carry all types of jewelry in a variety of price ranges.
Poethique Radiance Boost Serum received 0.5 oz $27.50 (Full size 1 oz $55) I have seen Poethique’s Radiance Boost Serum on Instagram and have heard mixed reviews, so I’m glad that I get a chance to sample it for myself. It has a thicker texture and absorbs well and quickly into the skin. Does it truly help give you radiant skin? If it does you best believe I will be sharing on my IG feed and letting you all know–sharing is caring!
Juice Beauty Photo Pigments Luminous Lip Crayon in Malibu received full size $22 I haven’t tried much Juice Beauty and honestly I’m not sure why? If you have some must try Juice Beauty recommendations for me, be a pal and leave me a comment! Anyhow, let me say I love me a lip crayon. Before I transitioned into green beauty I used to love the Clinque chubby sticks, who else was into those? The Juice Beauty lip crayon is ultra creamy and hydrating. It actually goes on like a lip a lip balm, but has really great pigment payoff. I received the color Malibu, which on me shows up a cool toned pink, which I am not particularly into–I feel like it washes me out. I was hoping to get one of the darker, more flattering color for more skin tone. In my opinion, this color would look amazing on someone with more fair skin. I’d love to check out their other colors because I’m loving the formula.
Bella Aura Night Cellular Renewal received 0.35 fl oz $37 (Full size 1 oz $110) Bella Aura is another green beauty brand that I have seen all over IG and have been curious about. It’s pretty pricey, so I’m totally excited to be able to sample it before splurging on the full sized product. This particular product is designed for mature, tired, stressed skin with deep wrinkles and fine lines. Now that I’m in my later 30’s, I’m all about the mature skin products because in case you aren’t there yet, in your 30’s, your skin really does begin to change!
