GoodBeing the natural beauty and wellness subscription

goodbeing-logo

Are you looking for a natural beauty and wellness source? Are you interested in subscription boxes but most send items that you don’t care for? If you can say yes to either of these then GOOD*BEING is a box you want to know more about.good-being-box

GOOD*BEING at one time was called Goodebox which we’ve reviewed previously. The subscription is similar but now it’s more curated to meet your needs. I was sent a sample box to show you the type of products you could receive. Since I didn’t register I received a typical box rather than one chosen specifically for me.

The price of their subscription is dependent on how many months you sign up to receive it. A single box to try them out is $21 but you can lower that price by signing up for more months. Shipping is free for the sub so no hidden costs.

On the GoodBeing website it says that you’ll receive 4-5 trial size products but I received 2 full and 3 deluxe trial sizes. I’m pretty sure that’s typical according to my past experience. Each box contains information cards that explain the products fully. Every product is a name brand so you are dealing with brands you’ve heard about and would consider buying.

DR. HAUSCHKA ROSE NURTURING BODY OIL was the first product I noticed in the package. This is a 1 oz version and it’s huge. I’m surprised to find out that the full size is 2.5 oz ($29) since this certainly looks like a full sized product.

Dr. Hauschka Rose Nurturing Body Oil is a vegan product created to promote a sense of balance and well being. It contains extracts of damask roses and rose essential oil. It also contains jojoba oil. Apply this on moist skin after bathing and your skin will soak in the oil and keep you moisturized all day.

ANNMARIE ROSEMARY PEPPERMINT BODY WASH is another vegan product in the box. This is a sample size of 1 fl oz (full size is $34.95 for 200 ml). This plastic bottle is a great size for travel or to test out to see how much you like it.

The body wash is described as invigorating with an aloe-vera base herb-infuse liquid. This is pH balanced and contains rosemary and essential oil of peppermint. It’s a very refreshing smell as well as an effective body wash.

OSEA OCEAN CLEANSER (vegan) is a facial cleanser in a deluxe sample size 1 oz glass bottle. A full size of 6 oz is $44 making this a $7.25 value. This is recommended for normal, dry and combo skin. It’s a moisturizing cleanser so it doesn’t leave your skin dried out.

This is a vegan pH-balanced  cleanser that’s rich in minerals, algae, vitamins,  and mineral salts. It’s helpful for reducing the effects of photo-aging and it helps increase collagen production.

DAILY CONCEPTS YOUR DUAL TEXTURE SCRUBBER is the product I’m most excited about from the box. I’ve used this before and loved it. What’s unusual about this full size scrubber ($12) is that it has a tag that says “Replace me when writing fades”. People tend to use some products past their life but bacteria can build up. Even though we want it to be a forever item this is safer.

DAILY CONCEPTS Your Dual Texture Body Scrubber

This vegan product is a great shower tool. It comes with a plastic holder that sticks to the bath wall and a cord to attach it. One side is a soft washcloth feeling that is great for washing your face and body with gentle exfoliation.

The opposite side is a great body exfoliator. When used with a body cleanser (like Annmarie Rosemary Peppermint) it creates rich lather. I really need this side for my very dry feet to keep the flakies at bay.

PURE ANADA EYESHADOW (full size $8) is one of 45 shades available from Pure Anada. It’s a very finely milled mineral eyeshadow.

The shade I have, Champagne, is a soft shimmer that has just a touch of gold to it. It looks great on my browbone or all over as a shadow base. I recommend using an eyeshadow primer before applying so that it adheres to your eye and doesn’t fade away. This is also vegan.

All in all I think this is a great box with a good value. A single box would be $21 and the value of this particular box is around $45. To receive 5 vegan items is unusual in a subscription. Check out the brands they work with so you can know before you buy!  —  Marcia

Get your beauty rest with Daily Options Sleep Mask

Daily Concepts Sleep Mask

Daily Concepts Sleep Mask

When this Daily Concepts Sleep Mask showed up in my mailbox one day I wondered what it was. It’s too small to be a bra so I kept thinking. Once I saw the Daily Concepts logo on it I had a clue. A Sleep Mask it was.

I’m not sure how the PR rep knew I have insomnia unless she reads the BIZ often but this is a great item for me.

“This soft and lightweight Sleep Mask blacks-out even the brightest room for restful sleep at home or on-the-go. Features contour design and adjustable strap for a super-comfortable fit.”

As you can see the inside is a dark black and it conquers the light that streams into my bedroom. The smallest things wake me up and light is one of the biggest culprits. On the nights I have trouble sleeping I’ll turn on a sleep app on my iPad, put on this Daily Concepts Sleep Mask and try to fall asleep. It usually works too.

Daily Concepts Sleep Mask

It’s soft and comfortable and it’s easy to adjust. To clean it I wash it in the sink and let it air dry. I’d worry about the washing machine twisting it but they say it’s washable.

  • Soft and lightweight
  • Patented contour design
  • Will not smudge makeup
  • Adjustable strap
  • Washable

This is especially great if you travel. I have a lot of trouble when I’m not in my own bed and I believe this Daily Concepts Sleep Mask would make a world of difference. Since it’s only $12 it’s affordable. Now if I could only afford the airfare to get me away from winter!!

Have you ever used a sleep mask? This is new for me and feels like a luxury item but at a realistic price. — Marcia

Daily Concepts – where have these been all my life?

When Daily Concepts wrote and offered two products to test out for a possible review I agreed without any preconceived notions about what they might be like. It’s a new company to me and I didn’t know that they were about to change my cleansing routine.

Daily Concepts tools

Daily Concepts tools

Above are the two products that I’ve been using almost non-stop since they came. YOUR FACIAL MICRO SCRUBBER and YOUR KONJAC SPONGE. These are another great product to use for stocking stuffers which I know we’ve been talking about constantly.

Daily Concepts Your Facial Micro Scrubber

Daily Concepts Your Facial Micro Scrubber

YOUR FACIAL MICRO SCRUBBER is the one I used first. I have two bathrooms that I use. One during the day that contains the shower and all my hair and cosmetic items. One I use at night to cleanse and get ready for bed since I go to bed much later than my husband and don’t want to wake him. This Micro Scubber is in the night time bathroom. It’s a two sided cotton tool with one side being great for gentle exfoliation. That side contains nylon exfoliating loops. The reason I use this at night is that I can use it when removing makeup and later throw it in the laundry without ruining it.

This has an environmentally friendly, soy based foam material (inside the scrubber) to create a rich lather. It’s gentle on skin yet does a good job for daily exfoliation.

Daily Concepts Your Konjac Sponge

Daily Concepts Your Konjac Sponge

DAILY CONCEPTS YOUR KONJAC SPONGE is the product that has blown me away. I never had used a Konjac sponge before even though I’d heard so many great things about them. Now I want to know why I wasn’t forced into using one!

The PURE KONJAC SPONGE is so popular that the website can’t keep them in stock. They also carry two more: Tumeric Konjac and Charcoal Konjac. While it may not be back for a stocking stuffer, they will be back for you to buy.

DAILY CONCEPTS YOUR KONJAC SPONGE

DAILY CONCEPTS YOUR KONJAC SPONGE

A Konjac Sponge it’s very hard to the touch. It’s made of natural ingredients. To use it get it nice and wet. This makes it soften up. You can use this with cleanser or without. I mostly take it into the shower in the morning since my face doesn’t have remnants of makeup on then and use it with a gentle cleanser. Sometimes I use it without cleanser to just exfoliate. When done, don’t wring it. Remove the water by squeezing it flat between your hands. Then use their handy holder to let it dry for the next use. These are good for about 90 days.

  • Pure Konjac sponge provides pH balance for your skin
  • Made from 100% natural and preservative-free Konjac root
  • Biodegrable, vegan and never tested on animals.
  • No chemicals added! Delicate for sensitive skin.
  • No parabens, sulfates, or phthalates.

I’m totally impressed with both of these tools but I’m especially in love with the Konjac Sponge. I love that it is cruelty free and that the company is philanthropic. I love the clean feeling my skin has and how it’s helped with getting rid of dead skin. With the Konjac Sponge I can easily get into the crevices at the side of my nose that is the hardest for me to clean.

DAILY CONCEPTS has many great tools to use. I had totally forgotten that Lisa had reviewed their Dual Body Scrubber and now I want one of those too!  I just know they’ve converted me to become a Konjac lover and I can’t wait to try more of the line. Have you allowed Daily Concepts to change your life yet? You should! — Marcia

It is ‘me time’ with Daily Concepts Dual Body Scrubber

It’s not always possible to find ‘me time’. Daily Concepts makes it as easy as possible with their line of bath accessories that help turn your bathroom into a sanctuary. Not only are their products luxurious, they are also unique because of their expiration dates. Yup, bath accessories with label indicators that tell you when it’s time for a replacement…one less thing to have to worry about!
Dual_Texture-1
Another unique feature is all of the bath accessories have a built-in antimicrobial. Bathrooms are hotspots for mold and bacteria, and all of Daily Concepts products have a natural cotton-based layer with nylon exfoliating loops that have a built-in antimicrobial that helps eliminate bacteria, mold, and mildew.
