So we know a little about what they offer and we have a coupon in hand, but is it Worth this Witch? Let’s dig in, shall we???

 

The First Impressions…The Box

A very lovely, compact box comes in the mail. I honestly found it to be smaller than most boxes I have reviewed in the past. I wondered if it would only contain small samples of a few items inside.

 

They had me at Rebellious Act…

What a way to open a box, with the bang of a positive quote! What girl does not like to be a little rebel and who shouldn’t like themselves a bit more? Turn that badboy postcard over and boom you are hit with 12 coupons for companies found in the box and working with Goodbeing. This is looking like a little box of positive to me so far.

 

Get Out Your Deck of Info Cards

I learned, it helps, if you empty the box, get to the bottom, and find this handy little deck of Info Cards. Each product has a corresponding card. Information is on the cards like; the companies name, website, social media, ingredients in product, instructions on use, price, and so much more!

 

Fred and Far

Your first gift in your box is an inspiring card from Fred and Far called a More & Less Manifesto Greeting Card. It is blank inside so you can personalize your message when you send it or keep it for yourself and hang on your mirror or fridge as a reminder for your self.


With your card comes a love yourself movement pin. The Trillion Pin features Fred and Far’s signature Trillion shape, which draws out the power of the sacred feminine. This adorable, girly pin reminds us to love and care for ourselves on a daily basis.

The worth of these items combined is listed on it’s information card as $14. We will keep a running tab to see how much this box is worth in the end!

 

Box of Chocolates

I love dark chocolate, it is my favorite type. This was a great treat to find in the box. When tasting it you have to get over that initial kick of bitter that comes in after a few seconds. Because at first it is just sweet. You get so distracted for a moment by the bitterness that you forget it’s sugary, as well. But then that bitterness kind of blends into the sweetness, and you are addicted. You have to be a real fan of dark chocolate to enjoy this.

 

Their idea for an easy to open wrapper is innovative. You get three,  generous, nice size pieces in the box.

On the box there are few details on the chemical make-up of the chocolate. They do not explain in detail what the chemicals contained in the bars do. However, if you go on the website listed on it’s product card, you will find out that the chocolate actually is beneficial to you health. The site states:

Polyphenols are crucial ingredients of foods known for their nutritional and strong antioxidant benefits, particularly present in fruits and vegetables. ReChoc has been tested by Cambridge scientists in human studies that confirmed:

  • Unmatched bioavailability and bioactivity levels of polyphenols
  • Supports cardiovascular health
  • Promotes healthy blood glucose levels
  • Contains anti-inflammatory properties
  • Reduces oxidative stress (the main cause of aging)
  • Supports mitochondrial metabolism or “muscle repair” “

The chocolates are priced at $24.95 for a box of 20. This makes our Sample 3 about $3.75 for the Box.

 

Z Skin Age Extreme Moisturizer

This product was one of the items you got to choose for your box. I am always looking for new creams and lotions for my face because I tend to break out from them. I, also, have a condition that gives me very dry skin. It can be difficult for me to find creams or lotions that don’t give me pimples, rashes, or that my skin just drinks in still leaving behind flakes of dry skin.

I was pleasantly surprised by Z Skin. A semi-thick moisturizer that is 100% organic. I applied a generous amount onto my face and not a single rash, pimple, or blemish!! Instead, nice feeling, smooth skin. I do have to get used to the herbal smell of it. The clove is a little overwhelming to me, but only because it has never been one of my favorite scents. But so worth it.

When reading the information card that comes along with Z Skin I learned that the moisturizer is ideal for eczema, psoriasis, acne and wrinkles. It also contains SPF 15.

This was a great choice on my part!

The tube we were sent is priced at $19.

 

ellovi

Made with wild harvested ingredients, vegan, and mint chocolate flavored Lip Butter by ellovi. SPF 5. Ellovi is made of a blend of 6 of the most pure and nutritional ingredients on the planet – mango, coconut, sunflower, shea, & 2 parts of cacao (the oil & the butter). One tube can keep your lips hydrated for months.

You open the tube and you are hit by the scent of delicious mint chocolate chip ice cream. Sometimes a chapstick, a lip gloss, or any lip cover can feel to vasoliney. Some feel to waxy, or clump up, but this one doesn’t. It stays smooth on the lip and feels soothing. It tastes great, too.  My sister was kind enough to test this product out for us.

This product is valued at $5.

 

Curandera Remedies

MySore herbal salve, by Curandera Remedies, came in a 1 oz container.   It is a mixture of essential oils that are to provide relief to tired and achy muscles, arthritis pain, or daily strain. It was originally developed for those students who push their bodies to the limit doing a style of yoga called Mysore. The back of the label gives more information on the salves origin and ingredients. It also gives some other good to know facts like it is Fair Trade, Vegan, Organic, and more.

Simple enough to use, you apply it to your sore areas. It feels a bit waxy and has a menthol smell to it. A bit intense like Tiger Balm. As I had no aches and pains at the moment, I handed it over to my Brother-in-Law, who is full of them constantly, on his feet all the time. Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough of the balm to go around and it wasn’t strong enough to work on his problems. He said there was very minor relief, but that was for his intensity of pain and arthritis and as I have stated, his is large and the tin was small. He may have had to use it more frequently.

This product usually sells in 2 oz tins for $15. So ours is worth $7.50.

 

Airbiotics

Now this box holds a lot of clean in one little package. Its a Probiotic cleaning travel set Plus a 5 mL all purpose cleaner concentrate. It includes a samples of Airbiotics Probiotic Hand Cleaner, Stabiotic Mist & Probiotic All Purpose Cleaner Concentrate. They have covered all your cleaning needs with these three; Your hygiene, freshening up the air, fabric, linens, and your entire home! They use non-toxic ingredients, no harsh chemicals, or artificial scents and they are safe for pets and children.

These products came at a great time, as my sister had just had a newborn. no greater time to test them. They lived up to what they claimed. We freshened, perked, and cleaned galore with them and they did their job. Frequently. No sick baby or anyone.

Value of products provided $20.63.

 

My Over All Impression…

Goodbeing is fantastic. It Pampers, it Pleases, It even Compliments you! And … it gives you chocolates!! You get to choose up to 2 items of your choice, then the rest are surprises. Everything that was included in the box was of spectacular quality. If you do not believe me, you can ask my sister who will not put her new Lip Butter down, it is that soothing. But do they live up to their average value of $45 – $65 a month? OK time to do the math…

Fred & Far $14

Chocolates $3.75

Moisturizer $19

Lip Butter $5

Mysore Salve $7.50

Airbiotics $20.63

TOTAL: $69.88

This box has actually gone above what they estimate their boxes to cost and I am not surprised. The sizes of “samples” and the quality. This is a REAL DEAL!! I myself and going to be sure to check each and every month for the special gift offers they have and use this month’s special readers coupon code: GOODOFFER for a BONUS SAMPLE in your first Standard Goodbeing box! May not be combined with other offers. Not applicable to existing Personal or Gift Memberships. Offer valid while supplies last.

Goodbeing is DEFINITELY Worth the Witch!!
