I can’t believe it’s almost 2018. It feels like just yesterday I was starting my journey to a healthier and happier me. I had no idea where it would take me but I knew it was only going up from here. It all started with skincare and using natural products that would make all my beauty troubles go away. I was so over dealing with red, itchy skin that continuously broke out. I was over having dull, dry hair that I hated and never wanted to wear down. I was honestly lost as to what to do. Enough was enough and I did a lot (and I mean A LOT) of research until I found products that were working (insert Hallelujah with white rays and clouds).
As I got comfortable with the routine I had, I knew I wanted to try other products and venture out a little. Take some risks, ya know? When it comes to beauty products, this is scary for me because how sensitive and high maintenance my skin is. I was so afraid of going back to the red and itchy skin but I knew having products that were organic was the way to go. I didn’t want to invest in full size products because what if I didn’t like it? I just spent so much money on something I can’t even use now. I didn’t put a whole lot of effort into finding anything new but one day I found Goodbeing on Instagram and felt the urge to give it a shot. Healthy and organic beauty products delivered straight to my door and I get to pick 1-2 items a month that arrive in my box? Ummm yes please! I had never tried a box service before and this one felt so right.
Well, not to my surprise I was spot on. I am in love with this service. I was shocked at how big the trial sizes are (and travel friendly). It’s so much product for such a small price to pay. This was the answer to my beauty prayers. As little as $10 a month, I can choose from a beauty box or a lifestyle box and receive products that equal to a value of $45 or more. I’m all about a savings so this was a green light from all angles.
A week ago I posted my full review on these products I received in my November box on my Instagram @byjodirene and you can see the video here on my YouTube (skip to 1:37 where it starts). A more extensive review on each of these will come as I’ve only had them for a week so a lady needs some time to see them changes, you know what I’m sayin? Of course I’m not going to leave you hangin here on the blog. Below I’ve listed the products I got and what I loved most right out of the box as well as a link to all of them and their IG handles. Wait!!! Did you see the beautiful message they sent along with these goodies? It warmed my heart. A beautiful way to open up a small package with a big impact.
KVossNYC Nourish MagiK Shimmer Body Lotion
The packing has this sultry, sexy feel to it (and there is so much lotion in this little container). I don’t know maybe it’s the shimmer of the lotion but I’m in love. It feels like butter on your skin, lightweight and smells so yummy. Good for a date night or a night out on the town with the ladies…LADIES NIGHT! IG: @kvoxxnyc – Product Link
Modicum #3 Essential Serum
The smell and color right away attracted me because it screams all natural. Now in my 30’s I’ve been thinking more about wrinkles and all that unhappy skin stuff and this helps with providing anti-aging benefits, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. Yup I’m in! IG: @modicumskincare – Product Link
Sahajan Restorative Eye Cream
I loved the natural, organic feel of the packaging. It didn’t overwhelm me which is what I loved right away. It’s an under eye cream and I have been looking for a new one so it’s perfect. It has a simple smell (no overwhelming perfumes to make it fancy) and the color is very natural. Another “I’m in my 30’s and worried about my wrinkles” winner. IG: @sahajanskincare – Product Link
Yarok Feed Your Ends Leave-In Conditioner
I was so so excited to get a hair product as I’ve been working hard on getting these locks healthy for months now. My hair loves to go from clean to frizzy in seconds. The packaging on this one feels green and organic with it’s simple design (and well the hints of green). It’s a heat protector as well which I’m big on because I do heat treat my hair and I know it’s not the best. The smell is subtle (so perfect) and it’s 100% vegan. This kicks my other heat protectors booty and I haven’t even tried it for that long. Winner! IG: @yarokhair – Product Link
au Naturale Cosmetics The Anywhere Creme Blush Stick
I don’t wear much makeup and same as skincare, I stick to the brands I know. I’ve never tried a creme blush so this was exciting for me right away when I saw it. The packaging looks nothing like a blush (I thought it was a lip balm at first) so that added surprise just got me even more excited about makeup. The color is so gorgeous and natural. The color name is Sweetheart and the ultra feminine in me had her hand raised up high for this one. Yay! New makeup and same as the rest of the products, soooooo much in this tiny little container. It can be used on your cheekbones, lips or even your eyelids. It’s so subtle so this is perfect for every day makeup. IG: @aunaturalelife – Product Link
