GoodeBox Beauty Subscription Box Review – September 2015

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


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: $21 a month starting August 1st

The Products: Eco-friendly beauty and wellness products.

Ships to: US only.

Check out my Goodebox reviews and the Eco-friendly Subscription Box Directory for similar boxes!


Each box comes with cards detailing each product. This box included coupons as well:



David’s Premium Natural Toothpaste – FULL SIZE! Value $7.95

This toothpaste is fluoride and sulfate free, and I like the minty flavor. I normally use Tom’s, but this is next on deck! (Also I love the design of the packaging – I feel like Gwyneth would use this! 🙂 )


Plantlife Cassia Clove Herbal Soap – Sample Value $1.50

This soap is 100% natural and is made with clove and cinnamon – AKA it is the perfect fall soap! I love it! I will definitely buy this in full-size.


Odacite Intensive Hand & Heel Therapy – 15 ml Value $4.87

I like this intensive hand cream. It absorbs quickly and leaves my skin moisturized. My only issue is with the sample container – I don’t think I’ll get most of the product out of it! (The full size comes in a tub).

Avitalin C Concentrate – .75 oz? (no size listed) Value $51

This serum is designed to make skin brighter and diminish dark spots. (Yes, please to all those things!) I like that this sample is pretty big (I would have assumed it was 1 ounce, until I saw the full-size 1 ounce packaging on their website). I should have enough product to see if this actually improves my skin tone.


Au Naturale Eye Shadow in Gold Dust – FULL SIZE! Value $15

I love the Au Naturale brand, but I was a little disappointed to see this item in the box, only because Goodebox sent me the exact same product in a different shade last month.

Oh well, let the eye shadow collection continue to build! This shade is very close to my own skin tone, and will work as a subtle highlighter. Here is a swatch:


Verdict: This box has a value of about $80. I may be a little off on the size of the unmarked Avitalin serum, but even if that estimate is a high, it is still a good value for a $21 box. I’ll use everything, and I discovered a few new brands this month, so that’s about all I can ask for!

What do you think of the September GoodeBox? Which products did you receive?

  1. Liz, are you still a subscriber to Goodebox (now Goodbeing? I haven’t yet seen your reviews for October and November.

    • Andi-

      Were you able to find the October/November reviews? I’m looking for it as well… I know they went through a change so I’m cautious about signing up with them even though I have loved the bonus boxes I bought…

      • No, Lisa. I’m not sure if Liz is still subscribing? I’m currently a subscriber, though, and I can tell you I’ve been extremely happy with my last few boxes. I think they’ve been more consistent with what’s included based on what I’ve seen from other bloggers.

        • Hi, I promised that after my experience with this subscription box I would leave terrible reviews. I would like to let you know that I was billed for 2 boxes and still haven’t received any. I also usedon’t a promo code for a free box and never got it. Their website has an error on the cancellation form and now I cannot cancel. They have no customer service number and the only other option was an email. I have two other subscriptionside and have never had a problem. This company is the WORST!

  2. I just received my box today. In addition to the SW Basics cream and exfoliant, I received the Odacite, soap (oatmeal/almond), and Beauty Counter’s lip sheer in Twig. I don’t usually wear lipstick, but this formula is very smooth and moisturizing, and it is full-sized. It seems we’ve received quite the variety this month!

  3. Well, I only got 5 items in my box. I got the SW exfoliant, the SW cream, the retinol serum, juice beauty conditioning lip color, and a perfume oil.

  4. This is my third Goodebox and I love it. The first one was awesome, second was okay, and this one is great.
    I received the SW Basics cream and exfoliant, Vapour makeup remover, MyChelle serum (full size) and Grace toner. Used a couple of the products this morning and I love them.

  5. I just canceled, and Im glad I did. Between what Liz got, and the comments, they have sent a LOT of these items before. Are they just trying to get rid of old products? I have no clue. Between the price increase, and all the same products, I just don’t feel this box is a good deal anymore.

  6. My first sub box was Goode and the initial box they sent me was a “Goody” filled with all kinds of new products. I think overall they do a nice job. I had added Allure and Popsugar and the last couple of Goode boxes strayed from my needs, so I decided to end my Subscription three months early but FYI, if you have a prepaid multi month subscription they will cancel at the end of your term but will not give early cancel or refunds. No problem, since it is a good value and not terribly expensive but in the future I will pay attention to terms before a long commitment.

  7. I haven’t received my box yet, but I really love Earthpaste’s unsweetened spearmint toothpaste. (It’s available online, and at many local health food stores.) I can’t stand that most toothpastes have sweeteners, like xylitol or sorbitol. The spearmint version of Earthpaste’s toothpaste is completely sugar-free (real or artificial), and once I got used to the flavor, I never want to go back to a sweetened toothpaste.

  8. This months Goodebox was my favorite box ever!!! I got the SW basics exfoliant and cream, Eslor refiner/cleanser, Avitalin Skin transformer (may be my new go to beauty product) and a full size MyChelle eye cream! Goodebox never disappoints but they killed it for me this month! All skin products makes me a happy girl!!!!!!

  9. Sadly, Tom’s toothpaste also contains Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, which is bad news for mouths as well as skins. There are lots of better brands that do not contain fluoride or SLS. 🙂

    • Most people can tolerate SLS in toothpaste without any trouble. But if you are getting a lot of canker sores, try a non-SLS toothpaste. That worked for me. There are lists available online. It’s confusing because not every toothpaste from the same brand has SLS (I use one from Sensodyne because I have sensitive tooth issues as well).

  10. My box is still in transit 🙁

  11. Hi Liz, I thought you’d posted that each box will contain a Mini SW Basics Exfoliant and Cream?

    • Oh – you are right! I forgot about that spoiler. Between that and getting a repeat eye shadow, this box is confusing me!

    • I got the SW Basics Exfoliant and Cream, Angel Face Botanicals Grace Facial Toner, Palmetto derma Retinol and Peptide eye cream, and a large tube of Treat Peaches and Cream lip balm! I loved, loved, loved my box this month!!! This month’s box covered my whole face care routine (minus serum but I’ve received serums from them in the past) so these travel size products will be perfect for an upcoming trip for work!

  12. I guess I need to do some research – I thought it was good to have fluoride in toothpaste!

    Looks like a nice box especially that serum!

    • You’ll go down a rabbit hole with the fluoride issue. There are groups that campaign to have it removed from the water supply.

    • it’s very “in” to not use flouride, just like it’s “in” to not vaccinate, or to read about supplements on the internet an then self-medicate yourself with herbs and tinctures, but the research is still there and proves (in nearly the most perfect data set that you will ever see in a scientific paper) that it prevents cavitites. too much flouride can cause discoloration of childrens’ teeth etc, but that’s not something most people need to worry about. what you should be more concerned with is the SLS found in most cheap toothpastes. it can cause gum issues/allergies etc. you can easily find flourinated, but sls-free toothpastes on websites like vitacost (i use one by the spry company).

      (sidenote: i am a former scientist and currenly in med school, but i used to enthusiastically sell vitamins/supplements/herbs and non-flourinated toothpaste in the aisles of whole foods, so i am pretty unbiased! not on the vaccine thing though- vaccinate, please!)

      • Thank you for the info!

      • I’m old enough to remember when flouridating the drinking water was considered by some to be a Commie plot (grin). I also remember outbreaks of measles and rubella; I personally had mumps and chicken pox. My kids had fewer cavities than I did because of flouridation and they were all vaccinated.

      • Thanks for this post, doclauren. I have a PhD in biochemistry and I’m with you on the vaccinations and fluoride.

        • Yay, science!!! I was getting my PhD in neuroscience, but left with my MS when I decided to pursue med school. Sometimes it’s tough to walk the line between hippie earth-child and serious science lady!
