Now, onto the items!


Linne Botanicals Purify Face Wash – Value $58

(FYI – Love Goodly let me know that the sea sponge will not be included with this cleanser.)

This was such a luxe, spa treat to try! It’s a cleanser and mask in one. You can use it daily to clean your face and wash with water and the included sea sponge, and/or massage it on and leave it for a few minutes to work as a mask.

The formula is made with organic and wild-harvested ingredients like aloe and French green clay – it’s a really indulgent mask/cleanser and it feels wonderful on your skin.

I’m going to be using this sparingly so I can make it last as long as possible! It’s only 4 ounces (a small full-size for a cleanser, a decent-sized full-size for a mask).


Blissoma Scentless Stick Natural Deodorant – Value $10


Yay! A natural deodorant in stick form! The formula itself worked well for me, the only issue I had was that I still needed to warm the stick up a little before applying to get it to go on smoothly. (One Amazon reviewer recommended using a blow dryer on it for a few seconds!)


Lippy Girl Eyeshadow in Taken For Granite – Value $21


LippyGirl is a great vegan makeup brand, and this color worked well for me, too. It looks blue in the pan, but is more of a smoky grey when swatched. Great pigment, too. (Swatch in lower photo.)

AND GOOD NEWS: Love Goodly is letting subscribers pick their preferred shade to receive in the box. Email [email protected] with your first 2 choices of colors. Please include your email address and name and note “Lippy Girl” in the subject. If they do not hear from you, they will pick a color for you:


  • 89 Kicking Brass
  • 83 Snow Cap
  • 71 Taken for Granite
  • 86 Blue Up
  • 78 Golden Unicorn
  • 74 Hello Bardot
  • 84 Pinkie Pearl
  • 80 In The Navy
  • 71 First Base
  • 84 Fudged


Love Goodly Tattoo – Value Listed $2

Well, I did it. I finally tried a metallic temporary tattoo:


And while it’s not something I would normally wear, I have to say – I’m impressed with this tattoo – for the first day it looked like gold leaf!


Rawxies Lemon Poppy Seed Heart Bar – Value $2


Bonus points for the cute heart shape! This was a tasty (and healthy) bar. I think if you look at it and think it’s going to taste like a cookie, you will be disappointed, but if you want a healthy bar you enjoy eating, you should be happy!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $93! I think that’s fantastic for a $30 vegan lifestyle box!) The cleanser alone makes the box worth it for me, but everything in this box is fab – and I love that they are letting subscribers select their eyeshadow color preference.

What do you think of the October/November Love Goodly box?

(Also good to know – with each box and purchase, Love Goodly donates a portion of the proceeds to these charities).

I had reached out to them about the missing sponge/packaging and here is their reply: “In regards to the sponge and product packaging , what was provided in the reviews was a retail edition that was shipped to press outlets in advance. The reviewers have been informed to remove the bottle from the packaging as well as the sponge. The brand was also unable to provide sponges for the boxes.”


This was one of my favorite newish boxes (Oct.-Nov. was my 3rd from them.) I did not receive shipping confirmation by the 15th, which is the date they promise all boxes will go out by, and when I logged in on the 19th, the system found me but said I didn’t have a subscription (I bought a year) but invited me to purchase the Oct.-Nov. box. I called a couple times and finally got someone, who was very friendly and said they had just changed their website and some of the data was lost. She emailed back promptly and said my box was actually being packed then. I also got an email from someone else to personally say the box was on its way.

It arrived today, only 3 days later, but is missing the sponge and the box for the face wash, and of course I did not get to pick the eyeshadow color because I don’t like to read spoilers and didn’t see Liz’s comment. I’m very disappointed that Love Goodly did not give me (presumably others), a yearly subscriber, a heads up that they were changing the site and we would need to request a new password (a postcard in the box had clear instructions on this)…they didn’t include an item and they did not send emails stating we could pick the color. While I sincerely appreciate the follow-through, I cannot help but think that they really were not tracking that they still had not sent my box. I wonder how many others are still waiting for theirs? Not sure I want to stick around after this sub is up.


Yeah, I emailed them too around the beginning of the month and they told me the same thing. In the past they’ve emailed subscribers to let them know if it was possible to request a particular shade/ product. I’m assuming this is related to the missing customer information on the site since I never got an email (and I’ve subscribed since the beginning). Fortunately I saw their instagram post and requested an eyeshadow shade (kicking brass), which I got.

I also didn’t get a sponge and the face wash wasn’t in the box. Personally I don’t really mind because it’s extra packaging I don’t need, but someone with allergies might need the packaging with the full ingredient list.

In the past Love Goodly has had really awesome CS, so I hope they make it right for you.


I didn’t get a sponge or box either, but I don’t care because I wouldn’t use the sponge and the box is just extra wasteful packaging. Their customer service is excellent, I got an email back from Katie about the eyeshadows at 11:30 pm!


I just realized that I didn’t get a sponge, either! Luckily, I saw Liz’s post and was able to request an eyeshadow. I do agree with you that an email to subscribers offering a pick would have been a much better option.

My face wash also was missing the sponge, and came without a box…


I emailed them about my eyeshadow color choice and within hours I received a reply which stated my request has been noted and boxes will be shipped on the 17th. Great customer service!! I have about 7 subs and really like all of them for different reasons. Even more important than the value of the box, is the customer service, IMO. It seems that most people like getting “full size” products. Sure it’s great if you end up liking it but such a waste if you don’t. I didn’t like the cleanser in last month’s box so it went in the trash because I don’t have a daughter or sister to pass “rejects” to. I greatly appreciate everyone’s comments on this site. Since I’m very new to subs, reading these excellent reviews and comments is how I choose which subs to join. Thanks ladies!!


I wish it was something other than another cleanser as the priciest item-they sent one out in the last box and so did petit vour. I’ll definitely put the deodorant in my yoga bag and eat the snack though ☺️


I’m the opposite in that I love getting new cleansers, and I’m tired of getting serums. The Little Barn Apothecary one from last month is a definite repeat purchase for me, and I love the Osea one from Petit Vour, too. Kloverbox also gave out a great scrub from The Wonder Seed. I certainly have enough to stock my cabinet for awhile!

The one thing I don’t see this month is jewelry, however – isn’t that something they usually include? This is only my second box, so I could be wrong.


I was wondering that too, guess the metallic tattoo is the wearable item


This looks like a great box this month! I love that eye shadow color and would definitely choose that, but like sara, I have too many beauty subs and products already. :\


It’s great they are allowing us to select our eyeshadow. Thanks for the tip!


I want to sub to this so so so bad! I already have 8 subscriptions, though!

I love that the charity is beagle freedom project!!
