This has been a crazy-awesome month for discovering new (and new-to-me) vegan-friendly subscription boxes – I feel like I’m on cloud 9! I recently go my paws on September’s GoodeBox, a natural and organic (YASSSSS) beauty box gorgeously curated with trial sized, healthy, eco-friendly & highly effective beauty products (with occasional samples of natural & organic health and wellness products, too).

This box is $21/month with free shipping with prince breaks for 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions.

This is my very first GoodeBox evah (cherry popped), and I have to tell you, it’s not only pretty frickin’ rad (seriously, we NEED more non-toxic, all-natural beauty boxes!), but the kind folks behind the scenes are all ears when it comes to receiving feedback. I had a lovely exchange with them regarding their vegan offerings. Their website explains that people opting for vegan-only boxes may occasionally receive products with beeswax in them… I know, *gasp* *cringies* but wait! After a bit of friendly back-and-forth, they’ve decided to move toward a 100% vegan option, omitting the beeswax containing items! I think this is amazing! I think they’ll have a super easy time doing so too, because there are a bunzillion amazeballz all-natural vegan beauty brands. #soblessed 😉

OK, let’s jump into September’s GoodeBox!

Kumari Nourishing Body Oil – All of the products in this month’s box are so luxe-y – beautiful packaging and branding. I know that kind of stuff shouldn’t matter, but it does. High-performing, pure ingredients are one thing, but throw in some top-notch elegance, and fuggedaboutit! I digress. Yes, the packaging on this is lovely. The actual product is quite nice, too. It’s a nourishing blend of organic oils (sweet almond, argan, and macadamia nut) and botanicals that is lightweight, non-greasy, and perfect for everyday use. I enjoyed using this a couple times post-bath before beddies, and the subtle delicate scent of magnolia & sandalwood helped me drift off to Ryan Gosling Land. 😉 ZzzzZZzz

S.W. Basics Cream – This beauty brand is all about simple, pure, and effective skincare. This cream literally has 3 (!) ingredients: Fair trade shea butter, coconut oil, and olive oil. Badda bing badda BOOM! It’s extremely rich, you can use it all over your body (even your face), and it has a pleasant sweet coconutty scent. I also very much appreciate the glass packaging, which is often rare for beauty samples.

Angel Face Botanicals Grace Antioxidant Facial Toner –  Toners are essential for restoring your skin’s pH (they also help with the cleansing process, too). This anti-aging toner, which smells like heaven, is loaded with Vitamins A, B, C and E, and other lovely skin-lovin’ yums like rooibos tea, tea tree, cranberry extract, pretty smelling essential oils AND “reiki healing energy and lots of love” ←my favorite 2 ingredients, fo’ sho.

Red Flower Wanderlust Hand & Face Towelettes (6) – These are divine! I’d imagine these are great for gym-goers (one day!), on-the-go in-the-car cupcake scarfers (oops, guilty), jet setters, and crazy-busy mommies like mahself! These aren’t your common everyday wipes, either. They have a grounding, meditative effect with their unique blend of hinoki cypress, red cedarwood atlas, mandarin rind, cistus rockrose oil, and tree bark. I’m going to go ahead and say these are the fanciest towelettes I’ve ever had the pleasure of using.

Avitalin Vitamin C Concentrate – This potent formula, which is designed to target dark spots and hyperpigmentation, contains a combination of 20% L-ascorbic acid and 0.8% of ferulic acid. This sounds like something I very much need, but Imma hold off since I’m still breastfeeding my honey boo bear. There are all sort of BF’in dos & don’ts so I like to play it safe. Hangin’ on to this one, though, for later!

Au Naturale Eye Shadow in Gold Dust (full size) – This shade is so unbelievably pretty! It’s a subtle, shimmery gold that works great as a highlighter for accenting the inner corners of the eyes and just below the brow. Au Naturale is a fantastic cosmetics line – their products are so pure and beautiful, and the peeps behind the brand are really sweet.

Overall impression: I am definitely digging this all-natural beauty box. The world needs to shift to non-toxic beauty STAT. There’s too much crap in everyday everythings, and the last thing you wanna do is smear chemicals, preservatives, and artificial ingredients on your pretty mug! Mad props to GoodeBox for introducing us to good-for-you (and the planet) brands. All of the products seem highly effective and are loaded with the purest and best ingredients – there’s a lot of value in this little box!

Note – Not all boxes contain the same beauty products. They’re catered to your preferences based on the online profile that you fill out (just in case you’re like, “Hey, how come she got that and I got this?” 😉

If you like what you see, you can order a box (or a bunch of boxes) for yourself here, or you can purchase individual items from their online shop.

What do you guys think of this all-natural beauty box?

    I constantly have nail envy when you post photos. This definitely seems like a box I’d like to try out in the future! I haven’t tried SW Basics or Au Naturale but I hear such good things about their products.
