GoodeBox Eco Beauty Subscription Box Review – Oct 2014
GoodeBox is a natural and organic beauty box. I’ve been subscribing for half a year now, and I’ve found that they usually have a good mix of full size and sample size products.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Goodebox
The Cost: $18 a month
The Products: Eco-friendly beauty and wellness products.
Ships to: US only.
This month is a special box featuring brands from A Night For Green Beauty. The product cards also include coupon codes if you want to buy more products from that line.
Jillian Wright Skincare Congested Skin Cleanser – .5 oz Value $4.75
Vapour Mesmerize Eye Color in Flash – Sample
Earthwise Beauty Pumpkin & Papaya Seed Organic Face Scrub & Mask – 10 ml Value $5
Can you guess I’m not too happy with these sample sizes? I’ll be able to get 2 uses out of the cleanser and face scrub, but I hate these little Vapour samples. (And I love the Vapour brand!).
Josh Rosebrook Deep Nourishing Shampoo – 1 oz Value $3.75
Josh Rosebrook Deep Nourishing Conditioner – 1 oz Value $3.75
CV Skinlabs Restorative Skin Balm – .25 oz Value $13
I was ready to complain about getting more shampoo and conditioner samples, but then I opened up the cap of the shampoo – it smells amazing! Josh Rosebrook products are sulfate free, paraben free, phthalate free, etc. and now I want to try more products from his line!
This little skin balm is actually half the size of the full-size version. It’s a very rich salve, so a little goes a long way – which explains why the full size version is only .5 oz!
Verdict: At first glance when I opened the box I was a little disappointed – I like at least one full size item in a box of this price point. I did end up discovering some new brands and products that I really like though, so I ended up being happy with this box. (The value is about $30 worth of products this month).
I hope that next month brings the return of a full size product or two though! What do you think of the October GoodeBox?
