What's In The March Good Green Box*?




I was lucky enough to be sent a little gift this week, in the form of the March Good Green Box*! Many thanks to Bloggers United AU for hooking me up! Now I'll tell you why this is super-exciting for me; I'm that rare beauty lover that doesn't subscribe to any beauty subscription boxes. Say whaaaaaa? Well I'm normally quite happy to work my way through le beauty stash/large stockpile of samples I've collected. But having said that, getting a box in the mail that's full of beautiful surprises is not something I'll turn down! Good Green Box is a monthly box of organic and natural beauty products, some samples, some full-sized. If you like something after trialling it, you can buy it in their online store! It's a great way of trying out different products and brands, and useful if you're into natural beauty products. Let's see what's in the March Good Green Box, shall we?



First of all, there's a card explaining everything in the box, including the total value, a little description of each product, the price if you were to buy the full size product and all the key ingredients in each product.




What's Inside The Box?
~ Sarah Jean Lashes (SJ003)
~ Sarah Jean Waterproof Eyelash Adhesive in Clear (4ml)
~ MIOD Balancing Face Oil (15ml)
~ Wotnot Facial Wipes for Normal/Sensitive Skin (5 wipes)
~ Amazing Oils Organic Magnesium Wipes (sachet containing what feels like 1 wipe)
~ Bondi Wash Tasmanian Pepper & Lavender Body Wash (10ml sachet)
~ Earth Mumma Pit Paste Natural Deodorant (sample pot)




First up, there's a set of Sarah Jean Lashes and a Waterproof Eyelash Adhesive (in Clear) to go with it. I have to say I've never heard of this brand before! The lashes are vegan and cruelty-free and the information card says the adhesive uses a world first mascara-style applicator. Well I never! They are also anti-allergenic, water soluble and latex free. They are sounding pretty safe, I can't wait to give them a go!

Next up is a decent-sized MIOD Balancing Facial Oil. Guys, have you heard of MOID? Again, I haven't, but that's why these boxes are good. It's all about discovering new brands and trying new things. I've got a few other serums and another face oil to trial before this, but I will get to it soon.

I've already broken open and used one of the Wotnot Sensitive Wipes because I couldn't even be stuffed with the Micellar Water last night. I was so tired I just wanted my makeup off stat! These smell pleasant and did a good job of removing my face (not the whole thing, just the makeup, lol). They contain Australian certified organic aloe vera, rosehip and sweet almond oils.

Amazing Oils Organic Magnesium Wipes: what the hell is a magnesium wipe I hear you ask! Or is it just me that has NFI what this product is? Apparently you use it for pain relief of sore muscles and it can even help you sleep! I will wait until something goes wrong with a body part (shouldn't take too long, haha) and wipe this and await my Amazing results!

The Bondi Wash Tasmanian Pepper and Lavender Body Wash sure sounds interesting. Can't wait to lather this up. Here's hoping I don't burn my rude bits! I'm just kidding, they wouldn't really let the pepper heat your skin, guys. I do think this would be refreshing though (and might avoid my front bum region, just in case).

I've never used a natural deodorant before so the Earth Mumma Pit Paste has certainly caught my attention. This is described as a creamy deodorant made with simple, natural, organic ingredients. It actually smells really nice, and I appreciate the lack of parabens and other nasty chemicals. Can't wait to whack on my Brad Pitt Paste and see if it's effective! Hehe.

Overall, the contents of this box are valued at over $65! I'm happy with the inclusions and for someone with limited natural beauty exposure, I'm excited to try everything out and see how I go! Thanks again to Bloggers United AU and Good Green Box.

  4. I've heard a lot about Amazing Oils of late - not sure if it's because they're marketing team has upped their game or if it really is amazing. It's also Sunshine Coast based, so a local company. Maybe it's that. Anyways, I'll be interested to hear your verdict. #teamLovinLife

  5. Love your review Di - you always make me laugh doll, just adore your sense of humour. As you know I have this box too and I reckon it's pretty darn good - put the Brad Pitt Paste (lol!) to the test again today and I'm even more impressed as I didn't experience any wetness or odour whatsoever, pea sized is the perfect quantity xxx

  16. I received this box too and I'm most excited about the magnesium pain relief wipe. I frequently get various aches and pains and I can't wait to try this wipe as alternative to popping a pain killer as my first option.

  18. You're not the only beauty blogger who isn't subscribed to a beauty box - I'm not either. I would however subscribe to this one if I had the funds to splash since I've been hearing a lot about it from several other bloggers like Kats & Jasmine + I'm into all that natural beauty stuff. I'd probably stuff up the lashes if I had them lol.
