Goodebox - April 2012

Hello, Beautiful!

Have you heard of Goodebox? It's one of the newer monthly sampling programs on the market and I am pretty impressed with them! They are a little more money than most (as most are about $10 to $12 per month). Goodbox is $16 per month and you get 6 or more products each month. Plus, members also receive exclusive discounts, full size product giveaways, tips and more.

For more information on Goodebox, or to sign-up and start receiving your own Goodebox every month, CLICK HERE. $16 each month.

Now I'll break it down, product-by-product...

Josie Maran Bear Naked Wipes
  • DESCRIPTION ON INFO CARD: Convenient cleansing with a blend of aloe vera, cucumber, and vitamin E. Free of fragrance, parabens, and petrochemicals, these luxurious, biodegradable wipes are kind to tender skin, leaving it feeling nourished and refreshed!
  • MY THOUGHTS: I actually already own a full sized pack of these wipes. They're really gentle and feel good on your skin, but they aren't the greatest at removing makeup. Still, I like them for quick cleaning or refreshing.
  • FULL SIZE: 30 wipes @ $12.00
  • SIZE I RECEIVED: 8 wipes
  • VALUE: $3.20 (although they list the travel size being priced at $6.00)

Alima Pure Luminous Shimmer Blush in Freja
  • DESCRIPTION ON INFO CARD: You know that rosy, "just in from being outside" look? Now you can fake it naturally. Pure, luscious and richly pigmented. Alima's Luminous Shimmer blush goes on sheer and blends beautifully for a healthy glow.
  • MY THOUGHTS: I really like the Alima Pure brand, but haven't tried their blush yet. I'm looking forward to giving it a try.
  • FULL SIZE: 0.16 oz @ $20.00
  • SIZE I RECEIVED: I'm not sure of the exact size, but on the Alima Pure website they offer a sample jar for $1.50
  • VALUE: $1.50

Alima Pure Luminous Shimmer Powder (Bronzer) in Belize
  • DESCRIPTION ON INFO CARD: Looking for a little incandescent pick-me-up? Dust over cheeks, forehead, eyes and shoulders for an ethereal soft-focus look that radiates your inner beauty. It's illuminating. Dust, glow and go.
  • MY THOUGHTS: Again, looking forward to trying this bronzer as I already like the Alima Pure brand.
  • FULL SIZE: 0.16 oz @ $20.00
  • SIZE I RECEIVED: I'm not sure of the exact size, but on the Alima Pure website they offer a sample jar for $1.50

Clairvoyant Beauty Depuffing Cucumber & Cranberry Eye Gel
  • DESCRIPTION ON INFO CARD: Instant rescue relief for puffy eyes is in sight! An effective combination of Cucumber and Cranberry Seed Oil soothes and calms irritated eyes while reducing water retention.
  • MY THOUGHTS: I already own this product in its full sized version, which I reviewed here. I love this product and still highly recommend it! The sample is actually full sized, well according to the label on the sample jar. It's not in the actual product packaging, but it is full sized. What a great value!
  • FULL SIZE: 0.5 oz @ $32.00
  • SIZE I RECEIVED: 0.5 oz (full sized item)
  • VALUE: $32.00

Clairvoyant Beauty Balancing Rosehip Oil & Hibiscus Serum
  • DESCRIPTION ON INFO CARD: Balancing, deep hydration for all skin types, even sensitive. Rich in essential fatty acids, B Vitamins plus C, and DMAE & MSM, this anti-aging formula is naturally astringent and highly antioxidant.

  • MY THOUGHTS: I've never heard of this brand, so it's always nice to try new products.
  • FULL SIZE: 2 oz @ $40.00
  • SIZE I RECEIVED: I'm not sure what size the sample is, so I can't list a value for this product.
  • VALUE: $??

Stark Skincare Green Tea Detox Clay Mask
  • DESCRIPTION ON INFO CARD: Purify, detox and brighten skin with this clay, green tea and fruit extract mask. Mixed with your liquid of choice, use it as a spot treatment or weekly for soft, supple skin.
