GoodeBox is now GoodBeing box! This box 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.

The Cost: $21 a month
The Products: Eco-friendly beauty and wellness products.
Ships to: US only.
Each box comes with cards detailing each product.
Balanced Guru Nourish Me Facial Serum – FULL SIZE! Value $23
This facial serum is a mix of organic oils and it smells wonderful! It absorbs pretty easily, too. And fortunately for me, I really like this brand, because there is more of it!
Balanced Guru Face It Deeply Facial Cleanser – 1 oz (Travel Size) Value $10
Balanced Guru Tone It Deeply Facial Toner – 1 oz (Travel Size) Value $9
At first, I was a little surprised to see three of the five items were Balanced Guru this month. I like that it is a complete facial care set, and this brand is great, so I’ve decided I’m OK with this being a Balanced Guru dominated box! Both of these items are gentle and smell great. (The cleanser is non-foaming but gets the job done).
Curandera Remedies Kapalabati Cold & Sinus Oil – .5 oz Value $12.50
I’m not an expert on this item, so I’m going to quote the product description:
Kapalabati Oil The Kapalabati Cold & Sinus oil was inspired by the Yogic kriya of the same name ‘kapalabati’. It is the skull shining breath, performed through the nose with a forceful exhalation, it opens the sinus & clears the head. *A natural alternative to petroleum based chest rubs providing relief from congestion of cold & flu. Apply to the chest, back of neck, armpits, and bottom of feet. Packaged in a convenient 1oz rol and 1/2 oz dropper bottle. Ingredients: Neem infused grapeseed oil, Vitamin E, EO blend (eucalyptus, rosemary, lavender, camphor, spruce)
*Rosemary, Eucalyptus, and Spruce open the sinus & increase breathing – Lavender, Neem & Camphor purifies the nasal passages & lungs
Goodbeing recommends dabbing it under your nose to help clear sinuses. I prefer that to armpits and bottom of feet, so I’ll give it a try next time I need my sinuses cleared!
Gia Minerals Mineral Blush in Splendid Rose – 3 grams Value $18.75
This blush is practically full size (the full size version is 4 grams). This color has a good amount of shimmer, and a little goes a long way, so it should last for a while. Swatched below:
Verdict: This box has a value of about $73. I think that is great for a $21 natural beauty box. I also love getting a mini skincare set from Balanced Guru, but if you don’t like the brand I could see that being a major negative for this box.
