Goodiebox June 2014 – Festival Chick!
I already got my Goodiebox, I already got my Goodiebox… *dancing around*
After previous month’s extreme fuck-up in delivery (yes, I swear, so shoot me) I really wasn’t expecting next-day delivery this time so I was pleasantly surprised when my boyfriend found the box hanging in a bag on the door handle this morning!
This box is meant for going to a festival, traveling or something similar because it’s focus is on travel-sized items and practical items. Even if you’re not going to a festival or going traveling this year, like me, they’re still completely usable items.
For a start, I’m going to list the items and review the few I’ve already tried out (Patience? Me? NOPE) but I’m doing it under the “read more” since I don’t want to ruin it for anyone who’s still waiting for their box.
My camera is still refusing to focus properly so – sadly – this was the best picture out of the very large bunch of pictures. I even moved the box around the house, hoping to find better lighting, but no such luck.

I think there will be a lot of divided opinions on this box. Some people will love it and some will find it boring. Personally, I was a little, “meh” when I first opened it. Last time I was pretty much over the moon because I loved all the things (minus the horrible Medina perfume sample) so I didn’t get the best first impression.
I think it’s mainly because there’s a lot of small sized items this time so the box looked a little empty compared to May’s box. After going through it, though, I had to re-evaluate. Because the items are actually pretty neat.
I’ve already tried the INK by Dennis Knudsen eyeshadow primer and it’s really good. I went with a purple/pink look today, using the Dia De Los Muertos Salvation Palette, and even after rubbing my eye like a crazy person and putting a wet piece of toilet paper on it (oh, the joys of allergies!) the eyeshadow is still there! I was really happily surprised! The product descriptions says, “The best part is that the shape makes it easy to use without applicators or using your fingers” – I don’t quite agree since I had to use my fingers to make it even. But maybe I just have weird eyelids, who knows?
I also quickly tried the Nivea lip balm and OH MY GOD, does it smell amazing! I’ve always been a fan of Nivea even though it’s not exactly high-end because they really do make quality products.
The Lee Stafford dry shampoo is also more than welcome. I love dry shampoo because as a mother and owner of delicate, quickly greasy hair, dry shampoos are a God-send. This one isn’t really my favorite so far, but I will wait with a review until I actually get to try it our more than once 😉
The So Susan concealer quad is hopefully better than my current – a corrective concealer from ELF, which may just be the worst product I have tried in my entire life – so I’m looking forward to trying it out. We got another So Susan product in one of the other boxes, a nail polish, and I just love their packaging!
Which leads us to my least favorite thing from this box – the nail products. Don’t get me wrong, I think they look very useful and exciting – if you don’t bite your nails like I do. Since I’ve done it from the age of 8 and I have OCD which makes it virtually impossible for me to stop, all I can do with the crazy amount of nail polish we get in these boxes, are use them for my feet. And my feet aren’t exactly that wonderful that I want to show them off all year round 😉 I have to admit that despite my nail biting problem, I’ve always been intrigued by the crackle effect so this way I get to try it out.
So the Mesauda Milano nail polish and the Depend nail polish remover pads will definitely be used but probably not reviewed anytime soon since I rarely do my toenails. But for people who actually have nails, I’m sure these products will be great.
The last thing is a sample of the JorgObé srub mask and while I very much liked the previous JorgOrbé samples, it’s very difficult to get enough out of it to actually review it properly.
All in all, a very good box that I’m definitely happy with. If you’re interested in getting your own Goodieboxes, you can do so here (:
