‘Claim Your Happiness’ is the theme of August Goodiebox subscription box. Happiness is different for each person but Goodiebox team wants to remind you that it can come from those little moments when you take time to do something for yourself.
I like this concept of focusing on little things. Sometimes bigger goal that we’ve have yet to reach makes us completely close down when it comes to enjoying little things in life.
Contents of ‘Claim Your Happiness’ Goodiebox
Able Skin Care Hyaluronic Acid Age Recovery Night Cream
FULL SIZE €88 for 50 ml
This Able Skin Care Hyaluronic Acid Age Recovery Night Cream is not only meant to balance your skin but also blur the fine lines. Night time skincare routine is important for everyone, not only if you wear make up or you worry about aging. We should go to bed with clean and hydrated skin. Lately I’m trying to focus more on taking care of my skin before bed time, so I’m happy to receive this night cream.
KARMAMEJU STAR / MICELLAR WATER 02
FULL SIZE €22 for 200 ml
There is never enough micellar water in my bathroom. I use it to take off make up and dirt that accumulates on my skin throughout the day. KARMAMEJU micellar water contains aloe vera and orange extract and helps to clean, smooth and soften face skin.
GOLD PROFESSIONAL Hair scalp massager
FULL SIZE €20
So apparently you can use this hair scalp massager from Gold Professional both dry and wet to stimulate blood circulation and get rid of products/dirt/dead skin cells from your scalp. It sounds interesting but also gimmicky to me. I’m also afraid that I’d do it do rough for my skin’s liking and end up with burning scalp, as my skin there tends to be more sensitive than on the rest of my body. I’m not sure if I want to try it out but maybe I can find a better home for this tool.
SANDSTONE SCANDINAVIA Infinite Summer Bronzer – 31 Sunset
SAMPLE VALUE €22 for 6 g (full size €33 for 9 g)
Most of the bronzers available on the market are way to intense for my pale like piece of paper skin. I don’t tan on purpose and summer weather in The Netherlands doesn’t help with bringing some more color to my skin either. So when I saw this Sandstone Infinite Summer Bronzer in 31 Sunset in my Goodiebox subscription box, I was like oh no.
So it’s fragrance and essential oil free, which is nice, because sometimes make up products have this very strong and overwhelming smell. It also claims that it’s easy to use and gives natural, subtle color.
I think I can try to see if it is the right color for me. It’s a bit darker in real life than on the picture. If not, I can either use it as an eyeshadow or rehome it. Sometimes color in the pan is way different than how color turns out on the skin, so it’s hard to tell.
TERRE DE MARS 019 Reddition Revitalizing Shampoo
FULL SIZE €19 for 150 ml
I love to receive shampoos/shower gels in my Goodiebox. Maybe I’m strange because I feel like most people expect other kind of products in their beauty subscription boxes. But I know that I would not buy €19 shampoo just to try out, so I’m happy I can do it through my Goodiebox subscription box.
This Terre de Mars Revitalizing Shampoo contains coffee extract, verbena oil, aloe vera and wheatgrass protein, so I hope it will give my hair healthy shine.
Value of Goodiebox subscription box
Overall I’m pretty happy with contents of this month’s Goodiebox. I like to receive products that I’m going to use up for sure, such as shampoos, micellar water or creams. I’m going to see how bronzer suits me because as I said before, most of them are unfortunately too dark/intense for me. If I don’t think the color is right, I will try passing it on or using it as an eyeshadow, so it doesn’t spoil in my collection.
On the other hand, scalp massager is a gimmicky product in my opinion. I’m pretty sure I won’t use it but maybe I can find a better home for it.
When it comes to monetary value of this Goodiebox, it’s €171. That’s very good for €24.95 subscription box, even if some of the products are not something I would pick up myself. I know that night cream from Able Skin Care inflated the value significantly but I’m curious to see how it works with my skin and if it does what it claims. I’m going to share my thoughts on products from this Goodiebox later on in one of my empties posts, so if you are curious about it, subscribe to my blog 😊
