GoodeBox Eco Beauty Subscription Box Review – April 2015
GoodeBox is a natural and organic beauty box. I’ve been subscribing for over a year now, and I’ve found that they usually have a good mix of 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.
Each box comes with cards detailing each product. The product cards also used to include coupon codes for the brands, but now Goodebox will email subscribers the discounts.
I like the Suntegrity brand a lot of SPF that is free of ingredients I like to avoid, so I’m always happy to have more. This is a tinted spf, and the color helps even out skin tone, but I wouldn’t consider it a foundation alternative (not much coverage). I really like the dewy finish too.
Modern Minerals Eye Shadow in Libra – 1 gram Value $6.25
I really like the Modern Minerals makeup line, but I am getting a little sick of seeing them in so many subscription boxes. That being said, I’m happy with the size of this sample (half the size of the full size version), the color (a super shimmery brown bronze) and the name (I’m a libra!).
Preserve Razor and 2 Blades – Value $8.50
This razor handle is made with recycled yogurt cups, and is BPA free. I personally use Intuition razor blades most of the time, but this will be a good back up.
Portland Bee Balm – Value $3
This lip balm is made with all natural and organic ingredients. It’s very moisturizing and has a nice minty tingle. (It reminds me a lot of Burt’s Bees Lip Balm).
Gressa Renewing Polish – .25 oz? Value $5.60
I appreciate that GoodeBox packaged this in its own plastic bag to avoid leaks getting onto other products, but it still is never fun to get a leaky product in a box. This facial scrub does smell really good too – so I’ll just make sure to try it in the shower where I don’t care about leaky containers!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $30. That’s pretty good for the $18 cost. This isn’t my favorite box from Goodebox, but I’ll use everything in it so I’m not sure why that is – maybe it just didn’t have a wow item for me.
What do you think of the April Goodebox?
