The December 2013 Goodeboxe

Thursday December 12, 2013 | Beauty

YUM. That’s the unifying theme of this month’s Goodeboxe.

Every product was chosen with sensuous self-satisfaction in mind.

The curators of Goodeboxe nodded in acknowledgement to the Holiday season. Then cheerfully put together a box of “pure indulgence with zero guilt.”

Goodeboxe December 2013

Every product was chosen to stimulate, soothe, and titillate the senses.

Sweetriot Nibs

1) Sweetriot – Dark Chocolate Covered Cacao Nibs.

YUM! Tasty, anti-oxidant packed, fairly traded and only 1 calorie per “peace.” Comes in this small reusable tin can.

Inside, there was a little piece of paper with my “fortune.” Kind of like a fortune cookie.

Maya Angelou

[Good quote, but I’m pretty sure it’s spelled Maya AngeloU]

Sweetriot sources their chocolate only from farmers in Latin America so that you can enjoy chocolate that’s “sweet for the world & sweet for you too!”

An upgrade from the Ricola cough drops of last month.

Deep Steep - Candy Mint Foot Stick.

2) Deep Steep – Candy Mint Foot Stick.

This smells so YUM!

But what if, in an absent-minded moment, you use this on your foot and then accidentally take it to your mouth? And then lick it?! That would happen to me.

This is a festively hydrating stick that you can use for your heels and cuticles. The peppermint and spearmint essential oils works to refresh and promote increased circulation, while cocoa butter, shea butter, coconut oil & beeswax provides softness and healing.

I love the roll-on stick form that this product comes in. Just be sure to clean your feet first…

Lotus Wei - Infinite Love Mist & Inner Peace Mist

3) Lotus Wei – Infinite Love Mist & Inner Peace Mist.

I have been obsessed with aromatherapy in the form of spritzers and mists!

My greatest love of all is fresh rose floral waters in a chilled spritzer bottle.

But these mists by Lotus Wei have taken me deeper into the world of aromatherapy mists and sprays. YUM!

The Infinite Love Mist is made from the exotic blend of wild fireweed, Hong Kong orchid, pink magnolia and other aromatic plants “to dissolve irritation, codependency, past trauma & hard heartedness.”

The Inner Peace Mist is made from pink lotus, arctic lupine & red hibiscus, just to name of the flowers which work together “to dissolve high levels of stress, anxiety, lack of feeling supported & heart palpitations.”

Choose your flower

Because these mists mainly contain plant and flower essential oils, they are noticeably stronger than floral waters.

During times of stress, you can mist these above and around your face, on your pillows, sheets, office space, friends, loved ones, etc.

Hip E Chick - Winter Wonderland Soy Candle

4) Hip E Chick – Winter Wonderland Soy Candle.

This is a 100% hand poured pure soy wax and essential oil candle. Scented with a blend of Mexican wild greens, fruits & poinsettia.

The smell is soothing, though slightly too faint for me to cry YUM!

But you can be at ease knowing that this candle by Hip E Chick is lead free and devoid of synthetic dyes or additives.

 Shea Radiance - Ultra Rich Shea Butter Cream

5) Shea Radiance – Ultra Rich Shea Butter Cream.

This is a rich and decadent body butter. The main ingredient is shea butter which is healing and beneficial for all skin types, even oily and blemish prone skin. And ideal for chronically dry, sun damaged, or eczema prone skin.

The smell is sweet and spicy and just YUM!

When you apply it, the texture is thick and feels a little sticky. But it absorbs quickly.

And the yummiest part is how long my skin feels soft and velvety.

This body butter is great for combating winter’s drying assault on the skin!

THOUGHTS

This month’s Goodeboxe was quite a treat!

Every product offered some unique and titillating delight to the senses. Titillating! That’s not a word you can just toss around all the time.

The winning product of this box is the Ultra Rich Shea Butter Cream by Shea Radiance. The cream is divinely moisturizing. And the brand’s mission includes the promotion of sustainable development for women-led cooperatives in West Africa.

Which makes this product both luxurious and a thoughtful gift to give this Holiday season!!

Shea Radiance is currently offering a 20% promotion throughout their online shop. So get on it!

    The mist and the shea butter cream (I do like a good shea butter) look great. Pass on the rest though. Especially that foot stick. Like you, I’d forget and mistakenly slather it on like a lip balm. Yikes!
