Info about each product is listed inside the folded card. Here you'll also find info about which charity this month's box supports, plus a 15% a discount code for purchases made from their shop.
Flower Mill Botanical Enriched Serum, 1 fl oz – Retail Value $38
We turned our heat on last week, and I immediately turned into a raisin, so give me all the oils and serums. This Vitamin C enriched oil comes in an understated bottle, but it's one of the highest price point items ever to be included in a Love Goodly box! It's suitable for all skin types and claims to target dryness, textural irregularities, and signs of age. After only a few uses I can only speak to its hydrating capabilities, but it does that quite well. Its scent is very faintly floral, and its subtleness makes it a good candidate to mix with a light moisturizer before applying.
Silly Yogi Celestial Zodiac Printed Soft Scarf in White – Retail Value $8.99
I'm a little over two years into receiving the Love Goodly box, and this is the first time I've seen anything other than beauty, skincare, or the occasional delicate jewelry. This scarf really surprised me, as it seems like such a summer weight (very light) and pattern—I'm sure that in other regions this would make sense for fall, but here in Pennsylvania I'm already pulling out heavier layers for warmth in the morning and evening. The sunflowers, suns, and moons are really cute. The zodiac symbols throughout aren't my style, though they would have been when I was in my '20s and going to music festivals frequently. It's from boho-inspired apparel company Silly Yogi, which carries vegan, cruelty-free products!
Note: subscribers might receive this white color or Turquoise.
goPure 10% Niacinamide Booster, 1 fl oz – Retail Value $29
Niacinamide is a form of Vitamin B3 that reduces inflammation, making it a good option for tackling redness, acne, eczema, and other such things that skin might contend with. This formula is said to reduce the appearance of large pores and decrease the appearance of wrinkles and aging. It's a lightweight oil with almost no scent. It absorbs nicely and does not leave a shine behind. I love having this as an alternate choice to the Flower Mill oil, and can't wait to find my rhythm with which I use, when, this season.
ESAS Beauty No. 1 Original Kolonya Hand Cleanser, 0.33 fl oz – Listed Value $8
The last item for regular subscribers is this very classy travel hand sanitizer! Hand sanitizer seems like it will be a mainstay in all my purses and bags forever now, so I'm always glad to have a stock-up. This sanitizer's scent is said to be "sunny, citrus, herbaceous," but initially it just has an alcohol scent, and the aroma doesn't come out until later. When it does, it's subtle.
goPure Vitamin C Day Moisturizer, 1.7 oz – Listed Value $22
VIP subscribers got one more product from goPure, this hydrating moisturizer. This is the hero item of the box for me. Not only is the moisturizer itself super thick, rich, and hydrating, it also comes in this really cool jar with a pump top so you can dispense it without having to pick it up off the counter. (See photo below.)
I've been using this moisturizer all over my body, and know I'll blow through it quickly, so I'll be keeping an eye on the Love Goodly shop to stock back up when I run out!
Love Goodly's October/November VIP box is ready to hydrate our dry cool-weather skin! To round it out, they also included a hand sanitizer and a scarf. To be honest I was a bit confused by the scarf—it seemed like the wrong season to me, and not my style—but everything else was a hit. My favorite item was the VIP item, the goPure moisturizer.

Value Breakdown: The Love Goodly bi-monthly VIP box costs $48.95 + free US shipping. VIP subscribers received 5 items this month, which is typical. That breaks down to $9.79 per item, which feels appropriate to me! The travel hand sanitizer and scarf both retail under $9, but the Flower Mill Botanical Enriched Serum is super high value at $38 and the two goPure products range from $22-29, which together make the cost of this box a great steal! Plus, as always, knowing the curation of this box are vetted for being non-toxic, vegan, cruelty-free, often organic, increases the value for sure.
