Goodbeing November 2018 Review
Every box comes with cards detailing each product.
Moving right along to the items!
Paxi Hydro Boosting Toning Mist, 1oz – Estimated Value $10 (buy a 2 oz. bottle for $20 or a 4 oz. bottle for $26)
Using bamboo, organic extracts, neroli and the perfect marriage of teas, this toner refreshes and rehydrates skin. This can also be used as a makeup setting spray, although this pump sprays in concentrated splatters, so I will likely only use this to tone and right before applying makeup to boost hydration. I washed my face, closed my eyes and doused my skin with this spray and my skin felt so supple.. rejuvenated, even! Plus, the neroli scent is hands down my favorite of any setting spray I’ve tried.
Good Medicine Beauty Lab Every Little Thing Balm, FULL SIZE 1oz – Retail Value $20
I chose this item this month because it is colder, and my skin is already feeling winterized. It is tough living through Pennsylvania winters and keeping up with the chapped hands, lips, and elbows that come along with it! I already dipped into this balm, and I am hooked – I can’t stop sniffing it! This balm gives me a less severe and more herbal Vicks VapoRub vibe (although, of course, this product is made from all natural components!), and I can’t get enough of it. I’ve been using it on my cuticles mostly, but it also added well-needed moisture to my lips. Every Little Thing Balm contains 16 pure essential oils and has more of an ointment texture, so it doesn’t dry down immediately. I don’t mind a greasy texture, especially when I know it is doing wonders for my sad skin!
EiR NYC Sunset Oil, 2oz – Estimated Value $8.75 (buy an 8 oz. bottle for $35)
I am loving the hydrating products this month! This oil blend is packed with skin-loving ingredients such as jojoba oil, aloe vera, vitamin e, and arnica, plus many others. The smell of this is quite herbal and very pleasant; I mixed about a teaspoon of this oil with a fragrance-free body lotion applying it all over, and it added an extra dose of hydration plus a lingering scent that I really enjoy.
Dermala Inc. Acne Pimple Patches, FULL SIZE – Retail Value $9.99
Here is my second pick for this month. I have always been curious regarding this type of acne treatment, and fortunately, I do not have any fresh spots to test them out on. This product is drug-free, and it works by drawing out excess oil and pus. This packet is the full-size product containing one sheet with 36 dots.
Clove and Hollow Lip Velvet in Fiesta, FULL SIZE – Retail Value $18
I almost picked this lippie as a choice this month, so I was ecstatic to see it in my box! I am really loving the festive neon red, and this formula applies like an opaque, whipped mousse. Initially, it applies wet and is very transferable, but give it a few minutes, and it dries down to a matte velvet finish. It was a bit drying, and I needed to reapply after drinking my morning coffee, but all in all, this is a pretty comfortable formula. (Side note: I always laquer my lips with a sleeping mask or balm before wearing any lipstick and always before liquid lippies.) This is definitely not an everyday color for me, but I will try to rock this bold red this holiday season.
Here is the Clove and Hollow Lip Velvet in Fiesta after about an hour’s wear and after my second cup of coffee. You can tell it wore off a bit, but I was impressed by the color left over. I forgot to bring this with me to reapply – a definite no-no for this type of product!
Verdict: This is my first Goodbeing box, and I think they might have the best personalization quiz I’ve ever taken; every item was relevant to my wants and needs! I think it is awesome that I got 3 full sized items this month, too! I am thrilled that I have so many new hydrating products that I can use up this winter, and I’ve never sampled any of these brands, which makes me very excited to see what next month may bring!
