Good Green Box: March 2017 First Impressions

I love trying out subscription boxes, although there aren't many that have proved to impress me. Since finding the Look Fantastic Beauty Box I have been pretty satisfied, as this is the best one that I have been able to find that primarily focuses on beauty (read my thoughts here). A few weeks ago, I was given the opportunity to try the Good Green Box*, which is a monthly subscription box that has a focus on more environmentally friendly, cruelty-free, and vegan products. I have consciously been making an effort over the past few months to start moving towards a greener, less damaging beauty regime, so this box definitely tweaked my interests as I am not aware of many local Australian brands that are also natural, organic and cruelty-free.

The Good Green Box offers 6+ beauty products, some deluxe sample sizes and others are sachets which are natural, cruelty-free, vegan, organic or a combination of these. They offer anything from bath and body products, to skincare, makeup, haircare and other treats. I personally think from what I have seen on their website that each box offers a great variety.

For the March box, I will be going through the items that I received:

The MIOD Balancing Face Oil ($30 AUD) is designed specifically for oily and congested complexions so it is a welcome addition to my regime. This is a deluxe sample size (15ml) that includes a little bottle and dropper, and would be a perfect travel companion! This will probably be coming to Europe with me. I have tried it a few times and I really like how quickly it is absorbed into the skin without feeling greasy. It contains macadamia, jojoba and geranium oils.

For your daily dose of beauty, they have also include the Sarah Jean False Lashes (I received SJ004) ($17 AUD) & Lash Adhesive ($20 AUD). I have actually already used this brand of lashes in the past (SJ005) and I absoloutely loved them! The lash adhesive is very innovative, with a mascara-type wand to brush on the adhesive. I haven't used this yet but it's a great idea and awesome that you get 2 full-sized products from a local Brisbane brand.

Next up, The Bondi Wash Body Wash in Tasmanian Lavender and Pepper ($35 AUD)
is quite a natural, woody scent and would be great for males or females to enjoy. The sachet is really only enough for one use but could be good to pack for a weekend away.

The Amazing Oils Organic Magnesium Wipes ($19.95 AUD) are certainly an interesting idea and something I have never heard of before. They are used for pain relief, muscle soreness or for sleep assistance. You just apply these wipes behind the knees, lower back or on sore muscles. Again, this is only enough for one use.

I was really excited to see the Earth Mumma Pit Paste Natural Deodorant ($12.95 AUD) in a sample jar. This brand is made in the Gold Coast and is definitely a great idea if you are looking to switch to an all natural deodorant this is free from nasties like aluminum. I have been using this and really enjoy it although it is a little difficult to use when in a rush. I might try an alternative brand from Good Green Box that offers a roll on option for on the go.

Finally, I have received these before in other subscription boxes but the Wotnot Sensitive Wipes ($8.99 AUD) are always welcome additions to me since they are so great for travel. They work well to remove makeup or just help your skin to feel refreshed after a long flight or day of travelling.

Overall, I feel like this box was a good discovery for me into the realm of natural beauty. It certainly has me feeling more curious about more local, Australian brands that are right on my own doorstep. I would definitely think about subscribing to this monthly myself. If you decide this is something you would be interested in you can use the code TRYGOODGREENBOX10 to save $10 on your next box.
