UPDATE: I don't use Goodebox anymore. I wasn't happy with the products and my skin is too sensitive to mess with mostly creams and makeup. I still recommend this for if looking for an alternative to other beauty boxes.
Birchbox doesn't need an intro, but I wanted an alternative to the commercial makeup out there. I don't want to get all preachy on sustainable products but it's not just to help out Mother Earth, but also to use beauty products without parabens and harsh chemicals. I signed up for Goodebox, an eco and sometimes vegan friendly company similar to Birchbox. I usually have to order makeup online and if I don't like it, I'm stuck with it. I love the productsI've used in the past, but honestly, a woman needs variety and playing with makeup shouldn't be lost just because it has chemicals I don't agree with. Goodebox makes trying out brands I've read about or brands I'd never try myself so much easier. For $16 a month, it's worth it, folks.
I don't want to bore you with an intro on each sample- but I wasn't disappointed, everything was great! My favorite was the sunscreen, All Natural True SPF 40. I chronically want to protect my investment (tattoos!) and my skin of course, but I hate how slimy it is. I've ruined a few silk blouses from doing this but this particular brand was amazing and I'm buying the full size when I'm out.
The only thing I didn't like was the color of the lipgloss. My actual lips felt amazing but my olive skin looked awful with the color "champagne". I didn't get to choose the color and it was randomly selected according to the information in the box. I was so happy with the Weleda Day and Night Creams, those alone were worth it.
