March Goodbeing Review + Giveaway


My Goodbeing Box showed up last Thursday and I’ve been having so much fun playing with everything that I received. I was beyond happy when I opened up this month’s package! I think it’s the best one I’ve gotten yet and it makes me feel reenergized about Goodbeing. Not that I wasn’t enjoying it, but this month was a total winner.


Can I be honest? I always am but I need to make an itty-bitty confession. I stalk social media once I get the email telling me that my box is on the way to see what other people are getting to get an idea for what I might get. Do you cheat when it comes to subscription boxes? I try so hard not to but I just can’t help it! I saw that some people had received a Luminizer and I was desperate to be that lucky… and I was! Highlighters are my current favorite makeup product and I can’t get enough. Seeing other posts also told me that I would be receiving another Me to We Bracelet, score! But I had no clue what I would for sure be getting, which makes it exciting.


Anyway, let’s get on with it. I bet you’re anxiously awaiting the contents of my March Goodbeing box so here we go!
ME to WE Water Rafiki Bracelet ($10)
Orglamix Enlighten Luminizer in Illume (Full Size - $18)
Pangea Organics Lip Balm in Egyptian Fennel with Grapefruit & Sweet Orange ($14)
S.W. Basics Cream (Deluxe Mini - $12)
Avitalin C Concentrate Optimal Skin Protector (Deluxe Sample - $34)


It’s always nice to see such generous samples and full sized products in a subscription box and with a value of $88 this box is pretty impressive.

My favorite items from this box are the Water Rafiki Bracelet (I loved my Health Bracelet last month and I’m so excited to have another one!) and the Orglamix Enlighten Luminizer. Illume is seriously gorgeous and I’m really loving it. I appreciate the smoothness of the formula and the fact that it doesn’t have any chunky glitter in it. It’s a dreamy cream formula that makes skin glow. The shade is stunning and it makes skin look so healthy and vibrant.

My only issue with the Orglamix Enlighten Luminizer is that the product within the jar was loose so it actually fell out when I went to use it for the first time and I can’t seem to get it to stick to the pot, which I think is a bit odd, but it doesn’t change how beautiful it is so whatever.

I’ve actually received this exact Pangea Organics Lip Balm before (in a Birchbox, years ago – long before I ever went green) and I’m not a fan but my Mom is! We like to share the contents of sub boxes so I don’t mind when I don’t personally like every single item. She is a serious lip balm addict. You should see her purse! I think at any given time she has 20 of them floating around in there. 20 might be a bit of an overstatement but I’m thinking it might be scarily accurate. Back to the point, she likes this balm and will use it!

I’m a huge fan of S.W. Basics (I reviewed some of their products years ago) and I was actually just looking at their minis at Target but ended up not purchasing them so this little glass jar of goodness arrived at the ideal time. I really like the simplicity of this cream and the size of the jar is so perfect. I’ll be sticking this in my travel beauty bag to take on my next trip but I can assure you it will, in fact, be used and enjoyed.

The only thing I’m not sold on is the Avitalin C Concentrate Optimal Skin Protector. It sounds really nice but I don’t love the smell. I haven’t tested it out because of my issues with smells, but I’m tempted to try it out soon because it sounds like an amazing product. I’ll keep you updated if I do try it out eventually.

And finally (not pictured) is a $10 Swap Credit Code for Swap.com.

  1. I have not tried any of these products. The items don't look that impressive but are probably better seeing them in person. I would contact the Orglamix company about the problem you had with Enlighten Luminizer so they could replace it. I think I would like the Avitalin C Concentrate Optimal Skin Protector (I can't smell much anymore so the smell you;don't bother me).

    1. I'm extremely sensitive so you're right, most people probably wouldn't be bothered by the smell. That's a good idea about writing to Orglamix! I just can't seem to get it to stick in the pot!

  2. Ah!! I would love to try these products! I was sad to find out that when I signed up last night I wouldn't be receiving this box but oh well, Next month will probably be fantastic too! :)

  3. I haven't tried any of the above products before, although I have used Pangea Organics before but just not the lip balm. I am most excited to try the Orglamix Enlighten Luminizer in Illume because I have never tried a highlighter type of product from any brand.

  4. This looks like a really good box. I would love the lip balm since I too am a lip balm addict. The other items sound good but I've not tried them and so many products won't work well with my oily skin.

    1. It is! It's such a good box. If you ever sign up for this box you can tell them all about your skin type so they would send you only products for your oily skin.

  10. I haven't tried this box subscription before - they're all so hit and miss, without a recommendation I don't know which to pick anymore. I'm most interested in the Luminizer. With warmer weather coming, it's nice to have glowing skin again.

    1. I agree! Subscription boxes are so hard sometimes because they really are hit or miss. I have the same problem!
