I ripped open my January Goodbeing box to found some exciting treats this month. What a fun start to the new year!

Featured in this box are six items, and I enjoyed getting to try each of them.

1. Gaffer & Child Facial Cleanser

The cleanser is made from a variety of oils, essential oils, willow bark extract, hydrosols, and distilled spring water. I love the glass packaging and the fact that this cleanser smells like mainly of lavender, but the product consistency is a little lacking. I found it too watery to easily apply to my face, and it also did not remove makeup very well. I think this would be fine as just a cleanser if you remove makeup first, but I just found it a little difficult to use otherwise.

2. Previse Marine Granules Skin Brightening Botanical Scrub

This is a very interesting facial exfoliator as it uses marine granules containing jojoba botanical extracts blended with fossilized algae to gently exfoliate. This is supposed to be gentler than many other exfoliators and also helps prevent microtearing. All Previse products are free of parabens, petroleum, mineral oil, synthetic fragrance and dyes, xenoestrogens, PEGs, glycols and phthalates. There is no detectable scent, and I enjoyed using this as it helped to smooth my face and remove any flaky skin. The little bead pieces rinse off, but do not dissolve very easily. I found it was easiest to use this before getting in the shower to ensure that the scrub was fully removed.

3. Elan Veda All Sinus Essential Oil Formula

This is an Ayurvedic blend of essential oils, including organic rosemary, lemongrass, and eucalyptus essential oils in a base of jojoba oil, to help provide relief for sinus congestion. It smells pleasant and the roller ball packaging is very user friendly. This would be great to take on the go or to use while traveling. I haven’t been sick since receiving this box, but it will be nice to have on hand for the next time I am.

4. Aila Nail Laquer in ‘Bless Your Heart’

This shade is medium pink with a hint of shimmer. I was hesitant about the shimmer, but after applying to my nails I found that it dries with just a slight sheen, and is not sparkly in the least. I have used an Aila nail color in the past and enjoyed it. The formula is extremely easy to apply, it dries quickly, and lasts a decent amount of time on the nails. One of my favorites features of Aila is that they are 11-free, or free of the top 11 toxic chemicals often found in nail polish. This contains no parabens, sulfates, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, camphor, dibutyl phthalate, toluene, triphenyl phosphate, xylene, bismuth oxychloride, or ethyl tosylamide.

5. Aila 3-in-1 Soy-Based Nail Color Remover Cloths

I was excited to try the Aila remover as I have heard that it works well, and I was not disappointed. I imagined that the cloth would be dripping with remover, but it actually felt fairly dry to the touch. I rubbed it all over my nails and it removed every trace of polish effortlessly. It has more of an oily consistency than a traditional nail polish remover, which had a nourishing effect instead of the usual dryness my nails experience. I personally wish that this didin’t contain soy, but it is certainly a better option that most removers you will find at the store.

6. Emani Lip Shine in ‘Star’

This lip shine has been so fun to try. I would not normally gravitate to this type of lip product, but it was nice to try something new. I apply a dab onto my lips using the doefoot applicator and it creates really juicy and glossy strawberry-colored lips. This would make a great statement lip along with nude eyes, or lightly topped over a bold red lip for shine. The lip shine has visible shimmer in the tube, but on my lips it is barely detectable. This contains organic fruit extracts, organic oils, and mineral pigments to create a natural and conditioning lip product.
