What a treat Goodbeing is! This is my second month being part of the service, and I’m impressed. The quality of curation is perfectly to my liking. It’s genius, really.
What are Goodbeing Boxes?
Goodbeing is a personalized natural beauty and wellness subscription service. It’s a great way to try a wide selection of natural beauty products, with 15% off codes for any of the products I want to purchase more of.
Goodbeing has curated dozens of brands I already know and trust, including Alima Pure, S.W. Basics of Brooklyn, W3LL People, May Lindstrom, Kari Gran, Strange Invisible Perfumes, Josh Rosebrook and True Botanicals. Each of these brands are committed to making high-quality, nontoxic products which respect people, animals and the planet.
Inside My Goodbeing Box
Here’s what I found inside my latest Goodbeing box:
- A full-size 60g natural solid perfume from American Provenance. My scent is called Virtues & Vices, which is a soft, feminine blend of grapefruit, bergamot and jasmine.
- A full-size Lip Balm from Pangea Organics. My flavor is Pyrenees Lavender with Cardamom. Yum. The balm is gluten-free and contains beneficial oils and butters such as shea, jojoba, sunflower and tamanu.
- A full-size Enlighten Luminizer from Orglamix. The color, Illume, seemed like it would be too ruddy for my skin tone, but once I applied it to my cheekbones and cupid’s bow, I realized it was the perfect non-frosty sheen for my coloring (fair olive). I’m going to get plenty of use out of this guy.
- A 1oz travel bottle of The Body Oil from Prim Botanicals. And in a glass bottle… nice!
- A Water Rafiki Bracelet from Me to We. This wrappable bracelet was handmade by a woman in Kenya and gives one month of clean water to a child in a community overseas. On the bracelet’s packaging there’s a code I can input at We.org to see more about the impact this bracelet has in the life of a particular child, and more about the region it benefits. An absolutely worthwhile addition to this box!
- Finally, there is a card with a $10 swap credit code for an online consignment shop called Swap.com. I’ve never done online consignment, but I guess if there was ever a time to start, now would be the time!
Each Box is Different
Everyone who receives a Goodbeing box won’t have the same items as me. Goodbeing builds a custom box based on individual skincare needs and makeup preferences. The profile I filled out on the Goodbeing website covered all sorts of details, such as:
- my usual monthly budget for cosmetics, so they can source products to fit my budget
- my skincare goals and concerns
- makeup colors that fit my taste and complexion
- fragrances I like and dislike
- personal style
- vegan preference

Good being costs as little as $18/box or as much as $21/box, depending on the length of your subscription.
Here’s the individual values of the products I received in my Goodbeing box:
- American Provenance natural solid perfume: $12.50
- Pangea Organics Lip Balm: $14
- Orglamix Enlighten Luminizer: $18
- The Body Oil from Prim Botanicals: $12

The total dollar value of the products in this Goodbeing box is $76.50.
Each item is one that I would have chosen for myself, including the fragrance and makeup, which are two notoriously difficult items to trust another person to choose on your behalf. All the beauty items meet my own personal standards of safety and quality. And, of course, I love the Me to We philanthropic bracelet.
