Each box comes with a card detailing the brands and items included. And I love the image on the flipside of the card:


Now onto the items!


Wildcare Purple Majesty Lavender Hydrosol – FULL SIZE! Value $18

When I first saw this product I thought, “What is hydrosol?” I guess I’m not the only one because they explain it in detail on their site:

Hydrosols, also known as Herbal Distillates, are the subtle aromatic waters resulting from slowly steamed plant material. Lovingly made using hand collected local spring water, and combined with ethically wildcrafted organically grown plant material, they are distilled through a copper Alembic. Alchemists from all over the world have performed transformational distillations in these traditional alembics for over 2000 years. The actual process of performing the distillation has a 3-5 hour duration, a much slower process compared to more commercialized modes of skin care production. What results is nutrient-rich water containing the plant’s suspended particles of essential oils and plant acids. Each hydrosol offers its own unique healing properties dependant on the plant distilled. The mist is incredibly gentle and well-suited for beings of all ages and sensitivities (including babies and pets). Wildcare Hydrosols are recommended as a daily facial toner, but can also be used as a hair/scalp tonic, energetic refreshment, added to baths and used in conjunction with clay masks.

I tried this out as a face mist, and I like it! It doesn’t smell like the typical natural lavender scent, though. (At least not to me).

Metta Skincare Body Butter – 1 oz Value $9.75

This is a smaller sample size for a body butter, but they fill this jar to the brim:


This body butter is a rich creme – and I love the lavender scent! I think this is one of my favorite body butter formulas I’ve ever sampled!


Osmia Organics Lip Doctor – FULL SIZE! Value $12

This lip balm is made with natural and organic ingredients, and it made for sensitive skin so it is free from fragrance and essential oils. The formula goes on so smoothly, and it gives you lips a little sheen too. This may be my favorite discovery in the box! (And I sample a lot of lip balms thanks to subscription boxes!)

GIA Mineral Facial Glow in Gold Silk – 3 grams Value $18.75

This highlighter is practically full size (the full size version is 4 grams). This is a pretty subtle highlighter (which I prefer). Here it is swatched:



Alter Eco Dark Chocolate Velvet Bar – Value $3.50

Yes to chocolate in February boxes! And I’m a fan of Alter Eco bars too – they are organic and support fair trade!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $62! I think that’s a good value for a $30 natural/organic beauty box! I’m especially impressed with the curation of Glowing Beets so far. I always discover new brands thanks to this box!

What do you think of the February Glowing Beets box? (FYI – February and March boxes are currently sold out. Sign up for Glowing Beets News Alerts below to be notified when there are new openings!)

  1. This is my first box and I honestly don’t know what to think. After seeing both December and January’s boxes I thought for sure that February would be great. I do plan on using the items in here, but in my opinion this is a lack luster box.

  2. I signed up literally yesterday based on the last couple boxes. Right now I feel like I just blew $30 on a chocolate bar and lotion sample. And fancy lavender water. 🙁

  3. Hmmm..will be my first box – liked January’s box from your review so much better. All the items this month are things that I probably wouldn’t use/need unfortunately. I will probably re-think this sub – at this price point, I believe I enjoy Beauty Fix more (dropped for this one). I started Yuzen (love!) and get Goodbeing already to cover my natural beauty interest…

  4. This will be my third box from them, and so far I really like what I’ve received.
