Unboxing of ‘First Hint of Summer’ box
Time flies by, according to the theme of this box. We just said hello to spring, and Goodiebox wants to prepare us for hot summer time already.
I’m very curious about the products included in this Goodiebox, especially after the price increase from last month (from €19.95 to €24.95), which caused some drama among members of Goodiebox subscription service.
TONYMOLY I’m Seaweed Sheet Mask
Retail price: €5.90 per piece
Korean skincare made it’s way to Goodiebox. I’m Seaweed Sheet Mask uses natural benefits of seaweed, such as hydrating properties and Vitamin E. Amino acids help with anti-aging prevention.
Rituals: The Ritual of Namaste Skin Brightening Face Exfoliator
Retail price: €12.90 per 75ml
I like the fact that this product is cruelty free and vegan friendly but I’m not sure if it’s a right product for me. Simply because I feel like I don’t need extra exfoliation at the moment. So I will pass this product to someone else, along with €5 coupon for Rituals products also included in this Goodiebox.
Human+kind Hand Scrub Elderflower & Raspberry
Retail price: €15 per 75 ml
I’m usually happy with products from Human+kind brand (I even repurchased some of them) again, this is a scrub and I feel it’s not what my hands need at the moment. Hydration? Yes! Mechanical exfoliation with raspberry seeds? No, but maybe someone else will get a better use out of it.
Foot Lab Co. Instant Foot Peeling
Retail price: €20 per 100 ml / Sample size price: €13.50 per 30 ml
Now this is something that my body actually needs. My feet are struggling with my working shoes and they could use some peeling action.
I’m very curious about how this product works and what the results will be.
moshi moshi mind: mind pumice stone
Retail price: €11 per piece
This is another product that I will definitely use, along with Instant Foot Peeling from Foot Lab Co. A lot of products from moshi moshi mind seem gimmicky to me, like massage face stones or face rollers (I have one in my fridge and I use it as a relief for headache but I wouldn’t have high expectations for it as a part of beauty routine). But pumice stone is something that actually is useful and I’m happy I got it in my subscription box.
Mélusine Paris: Hemp Prodigious Eyelash Serum
Retail price: €25 per 10 ml
According to information on Mélusine Paris website, this product is cruelty free and vegan. This eyelash serum is enriched with hemp and castor oil to stimulate natural regrowth of eyelashes.
I’ve never tried serum in this form and I’m curious about results. Unfortunately I see a problem with packaging, as some of it leaked out in my Goodiebox, even though it was sealed.
Value of This Goodiebox & My Thoughts
Total value of this Goodiebox is €83.30. €3.30 more than minimal value promised after price increase last month (it costs €24.95 per box now). There was some drama surrounding this fact among members of Goodiebox subscription and this box was expected to be kind of a redemption arc.
I think they included quality products in this box. I know already that I will not use some of them, because I try to avoid overexfoliation of my skin but I’m pretty happy with the rest of the products included in this Goodiebox.
Even though total value is not jaw-dropping, I’m looking forward to see what is going to come next, as I see small changes being made.
