GoodBeing Box Review: Natural Beauty Box

Good Being natural beauty box review
This month I tried out my very first Natural beauty subscription box, woo-hoo! I looked at several natural beauty boxes before deciding to go with Good Being, and I’m overall really happy with my first Goodbeing box.

Note: this is NOT a sponsored post. I paid full price for this subscription box, and I have not been compensated for this post in any way. This Goodbeing box review is completely my own.

I choose Good Being Beauty Box because:

  • It is a reasonably priced box at $24.95 per month, and includes a mix of travel and full size products
  • They include only healthy brands. Looking through their list of previously included brands, I was quite impressed with the line-up and saw only good-for-you brands. (I’m uber picky about ingredients, read more here).
  • They send products based on your customized profile. You tell them about your preferences and they pick the best suited for you products available that month to send you. Everyone’s box will look a little different.
  • You get to pick 2 products in your box every month. I really love this option, and it’s something a lot of other beauty boxes don’t do. Goodbeing has a window open for members to pick 2 of the 5 products they would like included in their box. This is great because even if you don’t love the rest of the products they send, you know you will like at least 2 of them.

For my October box, I received a bonus product for signing up with a special promotion, so I actually received 6 products. I was very impressed with the brands and size of products included – my box was packed full of goodies.

Goodbeing natural beauty box product review October 2018
What was in my Goodbeing box:

Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS Luminous Lip Crayon – Malibu (full size, value $22)

This was one of the items I picked for my October box, and I was especially excited to try the Juice Beauty lip crayon! I have used several of their skincare products in the past and loved them, but had yet to try their makeup. I really like this lip crayon. It applies smooth, does not feel waxy and is unscented. The color is not crazy long lasting, but I also picked a very neutral color so it’s a little hard to tell when it wears off.

Sade Baron Cloud Daily Moisturizing Cream (2 oz full size, value $10)

The second item I choose, the moisturizing cream, is a hefty size jar of thick and nourishing natural body cream. I chose the unscented variety, which is a lovely, creamy body moisturizer. At only $10 for a full size jar AND an awesome list of natural ingredients, this moisturizer is a steal and I will probably be gifting some this holiday season.

Juice Beauty Green Apple Cleansing Bar (travel size, value $3)

This is a great little facial cleansing bar. I like almost everything I’ve tried from Juice Beauty, and this mild cleanser makes it on to my good list.

Poethique Radiance Boosting Serum (travel size, value $27.50)

I love trying out new facial products! This serum is full of botanical ingredients, has a silky soft texture and a very mild, floral scent. It absorbs quickly and I really like it.

The ONLY thing I don’t love about this serum is the very last ingredient: ‘natural fragrance’. It says it is plant derived, and their website states that all of their products contain “a unique fragrance developed from distillates of botanical ingredients and/or blends of essential oils.” However, I usually don’t choose products that contain fragrance since I don’t know what is actually in it. I typically prefer companies that are completely transparent about their ‘fragrance’ ingredients. Read more about fragrance and other toxic ingredients here.

Wyld Skincare Charcoal Konjac Sponge (full size, value $16.90)

While I love the idea of konjac sponges, I don’t love them for my sensitive skin. I find them a little rough for me and don’t use them often. I was a little disappointed to find a konjac sponge in my box. This one does look very nice and the packaging is lovely, so I will probably re-gift it.

Gypsy Soul Organics Wildflower Perfume (full size, value $19.99, bonus item in my box)

This natural perfume smells divine! It is a completely natural, lavender based spray. I absolutely LOVE this brand for using ALL natural ingredients and disclosing them all. While I don’t typically wear perfume, I will use this spray. I also like this as a room or bathroom spray and to freshen clothes or my car. And it’s safe to use on or around my kids, so that’s amazing.

Total Value of Box = $94.39

Overall Impression

I am very pleased with my first Good Being Box! One of my favorite things about subscription boxes is trying out new brands that I might not have found otherwise. While I might not use everything in this box, I have discovered several new brands that I’m excited about.

Standout Brands

Sade Baron has a beautiful collection of handmade soap, and all of their products are so reasonably priced! I’ll be trying out more from them in the future.

Gypsy Soul Organics is a small, family owned business that uses ingredients from nature to create lots of different body and beauty products. They sell bath bombs, shower steamers, facial serums, solid colognes, a variety of other perfume sprays and candles. I was very impressed with their perfume spray, so would love to try more of their products!
