GoodBeing Box Beauty Subscription Review – January 2016


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.

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.

  1. I liked about 40% of my box that I got as a gift but the other stuff isn’t anything I’d use, I tried to message them at the email posted at their site and it bounced back, would’ve been nice if they had asked me what I need, I can gift the items but still!

  2. Can someone tell me the difference in prices for the boxes?

  3. I did not like this box at all. Too bad, cuz it was my Christmas present.
    Specifically, Balanced Guru is one of my least favorite brands — all their products contain similar ingredients, like tea tree and frankincense, which cause fierce sensitivities for me. Blech.

  4. Really cute blush. A bit too pink for winter but looks like it would be gorgeous during spring and summer on people with warm complexions.

  5. Really liked this month’s box. Received a Juice lotion in mine versus the blush. Like the customization of boxes. I’ve already used everything in it and liked every single product. good job goodbeing!

  6. Balanced Guru is a great brand, but the cleanser didn’t do the best job on removing my makeup. I really like the toner and serum, though. The sinus oil couldn’t have come at a better time, since I’m always congested during the winter. I’ve gotten a lot of blushes lately, so my sister-in-law was happy to take this one off my hands.

    Goodbeing continues to provide great value, and I always recommend them to friends looking for natural beauty subs.

  7. This was an incredible box! I got everything shown and I’m in love with the sinus oil. As a winter/spring allergy sufferer, I’m always looking for something to open up my nose. I just put 3 or 4 drop on a qtip and rub it just inside my nose. Smells great!

  8. I liked everything in this box, especially getting the “set” of facial products. It’s nice to see how they complimented each other.

  9. Glad they changed the name. The old name looked silly. This box looks like a great value!

  10. I got them same thing but face wash and toner for oily/congested skin and the blush in “Stunning,” which is a light shimmery pink. I liked being able to see how a set of products work together so I do not mind getting multiple Balanced Guru products. Even though the products were the same, I think the curation was still there; a darker blush would not work for my pale skin and I have very oily skin.
