Love Goodly is a non-toxic and cruelty-free vegan subscription box that sends a mix of 4-5 full-size beautywellness, and lifestyle items every other month for $34.95 (with free shipping). They also offer a VIP subscription for $48.95, which comes with an additional full-size product (or two). Every purchase supports a different cause each month.

This review is for the VIP subscription for $48.95 every other month.

Note to Canadian Customers: "As of October 28, 2022: At this time, we have paused shipping our bi-monthly subscription boxes and prepaid box plans to Canada; however, you can still purchase the Single Essential or Single VIP Box to ship to Canada. Current active Canada customers are not affected."

Inside the February/March 2023 Box


Love Goodly items always come packed neatly in a small cardboard box, with recyclable paper sizzle padding the items. It's a simple but thoughtful presentation.

Note: you'll notice in the images above that a small affirmation book comes with this month's assortment. It's shown here with the rest of the products, but subscribers can expect it to arrive separately, in its own mailer. If your LG box arrives without the affirmation booklet, it's likely on its way!


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. This month's curation is focused on self-care, and if you wanted to, you could use everything in the box to guide you through a day of skincare goodness. Let's see how your day will look!

Affirmicious Moon Phase Affirmation Handbook – Retail Value $25


Love Goodly has us starting with some positive affirmations from this paperback book. The first page gives a brief overview of how best to make use of affirmations, and then the affirmations themselves are divided into four categories: full moon, waning moon, new moon, and waxing moon. For folks like me who don't know which mindsets are meant to be associated with each moon phase, there is a nice guide at the start of each section, as well as on the back of the book. There are about 25 pages of affirmations per section. There are enough that if one doesn't resonate with you, you can read on until you find one you connect with.

Mudmasky Leave-Me-On Winter Mask, 1.35 fl oz – Retail Value $24


After your morning affirmations, you might crawl out of bed to wash your face and prepare for your day. That's where this winter mask comes in. I was expecting something a little different from a product that calls itself a mask; it's more like a deeply hydrating face cream. Which is more useful for me anyway! It's rich, silky, and has only a mild, natural scent. It calls on linoleic acid in sunflower oil to create a protective skin barrier against the harsh winter air, and simultaneously uses squalane and Moroccan lava clay to repair. It contains tons of oils like sunflower oil, argan oil, jojoba oil, macadamia oil, and safflower oil, to really lock in that moisture. I have been reaching for this product constantly, it feels amazing to put on and leaves my skin feeling noticeably more hydrated than it was prior to application.

A note on pricing, this product is listed on the LG info card as $45, but on the Mudmasky site it's $24, and isn't indicated as being discounted.

Ada Lip Beauty Lip Rally – Retail Value $18


I've never seen a product quite like this! It does double duty by exfoliating and moisturizing at the same time. The exfoliation comes from tiny sugar granules, so it feels a smidge rough going on but after application the lips are left super-smooth—and tasting good! It's really satisfying to use throughout the day and smells sweet, even a bit fruity. So nice.

Another note on pricing, this lip balm actually retails $2 higher than the $16 listed on the LG info card!

Steami Self-Warming Rose Steam Eye Mask – Listed Value $8


When I saw that this is a warming eye mask, I pictured something that you might apply under your eyes, and wasn't sure what the benefit of that would be. As it turns out it's one you wear on top of your eyes like a sleep mask, with loops that go around your ears. It starts warming on its own about 30 seconds after you take it out of the packaging, and as it warms it lets off a rose scent. It's lovely and very soothing to have near! It's familiar technology to me from using hand warmers and foot warmers on the slopes, and ultimately I couldn't relax wondering if this heat-emitting reaction was safe to have near my eyes. I tend to be trusting and would like to believe it was deemed safe before hitting the market, but I found I enjoyed it more just propping it on my forehead, then chin, then hanging it from one ear...my four-year-old daughter has a cold and thought it seemed nice to have near her face, too, so we enjoyed it just by holding it. The heat lasted about 20 minutes.

Elements Truffles Rose Cocoa Mix, 1 oz –  Listed Value $7


Keeping with the rose theme and giving one last treat to end the day with, we have a small pouch of rose hot cocoa mix. It's in an exclusive single-serve size, though the pouch is resealable if you'd like to divide it up and save some for later. My daughter and I made it by heating up almond milk in a pan as suggested, and then whisking the cocoa mix in. We gave it a frothy finish with our frother for fun. The rose provided a really nice aroma as we prepared it, but neither of us were keen on the floral scented hot chocolate for drinking. So unfortunately this one didn't land for us.

Zatik Glow Moisture Cream, 1.7 fl oz –  Retail Value $28


VIP subscribers will receive one extra item, this face moisturizer. Quite a different texture from the Leave-Me-On Winter Mask above, this Zatik moisturizer is thin and light. Its raspberry extract comes through strongly in the scent, which lasts for a good few minutes after applying. Since there was another face cream to directly compare it to in this month's box, I'll say that I didn't find it to be as deeply moisturizing as the other one, but I might like this lighter one better on a warmer day. That said, I experienced a faintly tingly, prickly sensation after applying it a couple of times. I'm not sure which ingredient I may have been reacting to but I decided to stop using it and pass it to a friend. That said, I've received products from this brand in the past and really loved them! The frosted glass bottle and broad pump are really nice to use.


Love Goodly took a fun approach this month with their offering of skincare products to take us through a day of self-care. They started us off with positive affirmations, moisturizing & exfoliating our faces and lips throughout the day, and ended the day with a relaxing warming mask and some hot cocoa. I confess I tried all these products for the first time over the course of a few days, but the novelty isn't lost on me. Not every item was a hit with me (and my young daughter) but I was turned on to two products I really love and would definitely buy again: the Mudmasky Leave-Me-On Winter Mask and the Ada Lip Beauty Lip Rally.

Value Breakdown: The Love Goodly bi-monthly VIP box costs $48.95 + free US shipping. VIP subscribers received 6 items this month, which is one more than most boxes. That breaks down to $8.16 per item, which feels like a really amazing deal for some items (like the Leave-Me-On Winter Mask and Lip Rally), appropriate for some (like the Steami mask and affirmation book), and high for one serving of rose cocoa. But overall the box felt full and lovingly curated. The total retail value I calculated for the VIP box is $110, which is great. For regular non-VIP subscribers, the promised value is $101+, but since a couple of the items were priced differently than listed, I only calculated a value of $82.

Hi there, I'm Christen. I am all sorts of things:

🌳 a writer who loves to convey feeling

🌲 a mother who wants to have just as much fun as my kids do

🌳 an outdoors-lover who's achieved #1000hoursoutside with my family

🌲 a low-maintenance self-carer

🌳 a general hungry person with an unstoppable sweet tooth

You'll find me collecting stationery and squirreling away stickers, riding bikes and swimming with my family, creating outfits in colors and silhouettes that make me feel amazing, wearing big earrings, drinking beer and asking my husband to feed me harmonies to sing, taking my vitamins, living for dancing to live music, roping everyone into a craft, being human and vulnerable, and celebrating the phenomenon of being alive.

...and doing it all with energy, delight, and jokes along the way.
