And I miss you I’m going back home to the west coast.
Beauty & Simplicity
My very first Goodebox!!!
I subscribed to the Goodebox because I thought it would be a great way to discover natural beauty & personal care products.
The products are selected for their clean, beneficial ingredients and eco-friendly packaging and sourcing of ingredients.
My version of the October 2013 Goodebox contained 5 trial size beauty & personal care products and 1 edible.
The products in the October Goodebox are:
1.) ANDALOU NATURALS Lavender Thyme Body Lotion - I am a big fan of Andalou Naturals, so I was happy to find an Andalou body product in the mix. The lotion is a light cream that absorbs quickly. I find it sufficiently hydrating, and I love the lavender thyme scent. Price of full-size product: $11.95
2.) POMEGA5 Green Tea Balancing Cleansing Bar - The first ingredient is olive oil. Followed by anti-oxidant powerhouses, like pomegranate seed oil and green tea leaf extract. I’m not sure which is the ‘cleansing’ agent in this product, but I’m very curious to try this one. Price of full-size product: $22.00
3.) KYI Chamomile Lavender Whipped Shea Butter mask - Although this is presented as a face mask, this is a multi-purpose cream that can be used anywhere on the body. I cannot rave enough about the moisturizing and healing properties of shea butter. So far, I’ve been using this as a lip balm. Price of full-size product: $78.00 (for 15ml… WOW.)
4.) ACURE ORGANICS Moroccan Argan Conditioner - An ultra rich hair conditioner formulated with organic argan oil, argan stem Cells, CoQ10, and ingredients that have high fatty acid content. Provides hydration and shine for dry, curly, or damaged hair. Which sounds perfect for my hair type (I have coarse, dry hair). Price of full-size product: $9.99
5.) ACURE ORGANICS Moroccan Argan Shampoo - This was exactly what I needed. A natural argan oil conditioner & shampoo duo. Price of full-size product: $9.99
* Not talked about (because it was devoured instantly): a NibMor Daily Dose of Dark Chocolate. But I can assure you it was perfectly dark and delicious.
Out of all the products, I will probably be purchasing the full-size version of the ACURE Argan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner.
I can’t say that I was blown away with the contents of this month’s Goodebox.
After my experience with the French beauty box Ma Boîte A Beauté (which often contained numerous full-size products), my standards have been raised especially high.
But as I’ve said, the Goodebox is useful for discovering eco-friendly beauty products and testing them before committing to the full-size.
Price of Goodebox Monthly Subscription: $16.00.
Would you subscribe to the Goodebox?
Happening next Saturday!
How could I NOT go to this event?
The iFabbo Social Media Conference is an event that will unite beauty and fashion bloggers with brands and companies from the beauty, fashion and social media/tech industry.
The day-long conference will be an opportunity for bloggers to zero in on topics such as blog monetization, PR, photography tips, and increasing blog reach.
I found out about this event two days ago because I happened to do a Google search on “San Francisco Beauty Bloggers.”
No doubt that this will be a perfect opportunity to meet up with some beauty and style bloggers from the bay area.
I’m especially excited about the guest panels, which will include well-known fashion and beauty bloggers, as well as professionals from the beauty, fashion and social media/tech industry.
I saw that Marlena Stell of Makeup Geek is going to be there and I am a huge fan of her makeup tutorials. How cool will it be to see and listen to this woman in person?
And for some reason, I thought that celebrity-status beauty blogger Michelle Phan was coming to speak during this event. But I think I just hallucinated that.
In any case, I’m gearing myself up for this event! I’m sure it will be filled with inspirational people and eye-opening ideas for blogging.
If you are going to the iFabbo event next Saturday, tell meeee!
And if you can’t make it to this event, no need to feel left out. You can still be there without being there. The conference will be available to stream and watch online via Pay Per View.
A head’s up on purchasing tickets. The ticket for the event is $100, but if you are a regular reader of My Beauty Bunny you can get the Founder’s Invitation price of $50. Just choose “Founder’s Invitation” when you checkout.
Hope to see you there!
