Talk About Subscription Boxes - March Goodbeing

My March Goodbeing box arrived last Saturday and I have had so much fun with this one. It's one of the best boxes I've received thus far. Let's just jump right in because there are a lot of good things to talk about in this edition of Talk About Subscription Boxes!

Here's a basic breakdown for those unfamiliar with Goodbeing, so skip this if you know how it all works. Goodbeing is a monthly beauty and/or lifestyle box that focuses on natural and cruelty-free products. You can sign up for the month to month plan or purchase an annual subscription which allows you to save 15%. From there, you can choose either the Standard plan or the Mini plan. With the Mini Goodbeing, you’ll receive 2 items per month, either 2 travel size or a full size plus a deluxe sample. This plan has an average value of $15-$20 but will vary month to month. The Standard plan has an average monthly value of $40-$50 and comes with 4-5 items per month in a mix of sizes that can be full size or deluxe sample sized. And, as an extra (awesome) perk you get to choose 1 or 2 items yourself each month. You can truly customize your Goodbeing experience to make it what you want it to be. You start off by filling out a detailed member survey about product preferences and concerns. Click here to check out the different plan options and how it all works.

This month I selected the Bellápierre Cosmetics Mineral Foundation. This finely milled, slightly shimmery mineral powder has SPF15, is Leaping Bunny certified, made with great ingredients and is totally vegan. This is somehow not their full sized foundation. It's 4 grams, worth $28.88, and their full size is 9 grams, $65. That's just insane to me! This is huge, so the fact that it's not their full-sized product just blows my mind. This is more than generous and will last me a very long time. I would normally be the shade Ivory but I decided to go for a much darker shade, Maple, to use as a bronzer/darker summer setting powder. I was actually unfamiliar with the brand (although it's one of the fastest growing mineral makeup companies in the world!) but I'm really enjoying this Mineral Foundation and I know I'll get a ton of wear out of it. It looks so natural and totally gorgeous on the skin. I'll absolutely have to check out some other Bellápierre Cosmetics stuff in the near future.

I was really excited to see the Emani Starstruck Lip Shine in my box because I haven't tried any Emani products and this lip gloss is beyond beautiful! It's funny, though, because I normally don't wear lip gloss. I used to when I was younger but I typically can't stand the goopy, wet, sticky feeling on my lips. However, there is something about this particular gloss that makes it really enjoyable. It's a gorgeous color, made with nurturing and soothing ingredients, that feels really great once applied. It's a bit heavier than the lipstick formulas I normally reach for, obviously, but I don't seem to mind wearing this one. I think it will look particularly stunning when there is actual sun outside and can truly sparkle and shine.

The other item I selected is the Shea Radiance Black Soap Antioxidant Body Wash in Unscented Pure. This 2 oz perfectly sized for travel body wash is really great, it's gentle, thanks to Shea Butter and Colloidal Oatmeal, but cleanses thoroughly. Shea Radiance is focused on creating products using natural, effective, concentrated active ingredients, like Shea Butter, to help defeat dry skin and eczema related skin problems. That sounds great to me since I have both dry skin and eczema. They also have an incredible story and mission behind their brand, so click here to check that out.

This is them still in their package. They start off really hard but when you soak them they get really soft and plush.
I also received the Art Naturals Konjac Facial Sponge Set. This $10 duo is comprised of a naturally white one, perfect for daily use, and one infused with Black Charcoal, designed for a deeper once a week cleanse. I've experimented with Konjac Sponges in the past and they're pretty great. They gently exfoliate, open pores, and help cleanse the skin better than just using your fingers or hands. I'll keep you updated on these.

Finally, I received a foil sample of Bedrock Balm from Bedrock. I haven't tried this yet but it sounds wonderful since it is made of Zinc Oxide, Lavender, Calendula, Chamomile and Vitamin E. It sounds soothing and hydrating, two things I love.

If you’re interested in signing up, you can click here to do so. With plans starting at $9.95 you’re bound to find an option that works for you whether you’re wanting to try out the beauty box or the lifestyle box. The box ships within the US but also to Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Norway, Sweden and the UK. A subscription would also make a great gift for any beauty lover in your life.

You can also find Goodbeing on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
