Here’s the June 2012 goodebox that was hand selected for me, based on my skin care profile.
A great bunch of products from goodebox and a mix of things that seem like they will work well together. One of the things I like about the goodebox is the box comes across like it’s tailored. There is thought behind what’s sent in the box!

Guess who just signed up for Birch Box MAN - that would be me! Oh the boy is going to be so excited that a box will be coming to the house just for him!! LOL In all seriousness, he’s not the kind of guy that gets excited about skin care products, but he HAS recently decided to wash his face with something other than bar soap. He’s a neutrogena boy… he likes the deep clean gentle scrub. So it’s a step in the right direction!

This is the Indie Lee coconut citrus body scrub that I received in the February 2012 box.
The great thing about these box services is the opportunity to try new products. I love body scrubs, especially sugar scrubs!
I found this scrub to be a little on the dry side, it wasn’t drying to the skin, just didn’t have a good amount of oils in it. Because of that reason, I only used the Indie Lee scrub on my feet. It felt really nice, and the tub wasn’t overly slippery since it wasn’t an overly oily product (great for when you’re in the shower and not wanting to slip). The scent was really nice and perfect for chasing away the winter time blues, you can’t go wrong with coconut in my book!
If you’ve tried any other Indie Lee products- LMK!

Delizioso Skincare Elderberry Hair Smoothie - my sample wasn’t sealed all the way at the bottom, (luckily it didn’t get all over any of my other products) and there isn’t enough product to try it out…

Let me be clear, I’m NOT saying one is better than the other.
I wanted to showcase 2 companies Green Grab Bag vs Conscious Box side by side so you can see 2 great eco-friendly subscription services.
That being said, I took photos of my most recent shipments from GGB and CB - side by side, just so you can see both and how they stack up, and what each has to offer.
I won’t be listing individual items in this post- they will be in a separate post for each shipment received.
This is what each was shipped in
Here’s a photo of the packaging inside each box.
Here’s what I received inside each bag/box
What I will say is this: THIS MONTH
To subscribe to either- follow my links:
Want to know more about what exactly was in each box? In the next few days I’ll post what I received in a separate post.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day
I wanted to share a review on a little pot of gold that I received in my Beauty Army kit in February 2012.
The LaRocca Skincare 24K gold exfoliant cleanser is a 2-in-1, which I love. This creamy cleanser a has micro fine exfoliant that is super gentle, gentle enough for daily use. The cleanser cleans the skin and the exfoliant removes the dull surface skin.
After using it for almost a week now, I can say that the cleanser feels good on the skin and my face and neck feels good afterwards. Not dry or tight or greasy. My face looks bright and refreshed.
Happy New Year!
Here’s the first BB of 2012- that has a theme of renewal, positivity and clarity.
Now I want to let you know that as soon as I opened this box, Lizzy was already claiming dibs on the LaraBar… You may notice that there’s no LaraBar (which was the BB extra for this month) in my photo. Lizzy saw it and said, “OH mommy, BirchBox sent me a snack!” How could I argue? After all, she gets as excited as I do when we get our boxes. (That’s right “our” boxes!)
What I will say is that Lizzy really liked the LaraBar, which provided to be a very wholesome and delicious natural snack for her. Made with just 3 ingredients, it’s a healthy alternative to many of the junk food granola bars on the market these days.
Here’s the scoop on the January 2012 BirchBox:
Clark’s Botanicals Smoothing Marine Cream - Love at first sight! I love this moisturizer! This moisturizer contains glycolic acid so it gently exfoliates while moisturizing. My skin felt so good and looked great after using this moisturizer for a week! On my wish list for sure.
Fix Malibu Immaculate Complexion Smoothing Serum - An anti-oxident rich serum to brighten skin tone and soften wrinkles.
Miracle Skin Transformer Treat & Conceal - Concealer that treats as it conceals!
stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner - in Peacock! Bright peacock blue liner, is a perfect way to start the year with a fashion forward style. (full sized product is $20 so it paid for the box for sure!)
This was a great way to start the year with BirchBox. Lots of HIGH END cosmetics, and full sized beauty from stila, makes me look forward to the rest of 2012 and all the stuff BirchBox has in store for us!
