Goodiebox May 2014 Edition!
I finally got my Goodiebox! A lot of us have had trouble with delivery this month, with boxes being delivered the wrong places or through the wrong carriers, but I think most people have gotten theirs by now, or will very soon. This month I saw a few of the things before I got my box but it didn’t make it less exciting!
This month’s theme is “rejseklar” or “travel-ready” in English. Even though we’re not going anywhere, I’m very pleased with these products.
A lot of people have been complaining that they don’t really use the questionnaire on your profile for anything (the one where you fill out your skin tone, hair color, etc.) and I think they’re trying to change this. This month’s Goodiebox came in two versions – one for brunettes (and redheads, I suppose) and one for blondes.
My “brunette box” contains:
Nivea Powerfruit Fresh Shower Gel, 250 ml (Fullsize – 22,95 kr)
Pin Buin Wet Skin Transparent Sun Spray SPF15, 150 ml (Fullsize, 145 kr)
Yin Yang Natural Moisturizer, 10 ml (Fullsize 50 ml, 128 kr)
Medina “Jalousi” By Gosh Cosmetics, 1,2 ml (Fullsize 50 ml, 299 kr)
Bellápierre Shimmer Powder, 36 ml (Fullsize, 149 kr)
Teeez Beautiful Flat Stiff Brush (Fullsize, 142 kr)
Matas Sun Lotion Factor 15, 40 ml (Fullsize 200 ml, 79, 95 kr)
Blondes got an extra thing, a shampoo, but a cheaper sun spray product than brunettes, so I think it’s around the same amount in both boxes. Besides that, you could get a different perfume sample and a different shower gel, but I don’t think it was hair-color specific which ones you got.
This box has a value of 513 kr total (yes, I did the math for once) and I think that’s excellent since I paid 139 kr for it 😉
As for the products, I just got them so I haven’t tried all that much. But for a firsthand impression:
The Nivea Shower Gel is fine. It smells summer-y and good enough for me to use it although I probably won’t be buying it again since I much prefer the one I normally use. I think we’ve gotten so many shower-gels lately that I don’t think anyone needs to buy anymore for the rest of the year! I’ve given a few of them away simply because I know I’ll never get around to using them. So nice product but I hope it’s the last shower-gel for a loooong time.
The Matas Sun Lotion is needed – I am an asshat and forget to wear sun lotion so I think it’s perfect which a travel-sized package. It’s easy to put in your bag (or in my case, the diaper bag) and take it with you – either because you’re like me and forget until you’re already out the door, or if you have sensitive skin and need to touch up.
The Pin Buin Sun Spray is definitely also something I’m looking forward to trying out. I haven’t tried this brand before but I’ve heard many good things about it. Supposedly, it isn’t sticky when you spray it on, contains D-vitamins and you can use it right after getting out of the ocean or pool because it’s formula makes it so that the water doesn’t ruin it. Awesome!
The Yin Yang Moisturizer is also one of the good things in this box since I’m running out of my moisturizer, so another thing I’m looking forward to trying. This claims to be free off all the bad guys so I’m very excited about seeing if it’s actually true or not – the A-Derma products from the past boxes claim the same, yet my skin breaks out the second I touch the products.
Then there’s the Teeez Brush which is perfect seeing as I’m looking for new brushes but can’t decide which ones to get. We got a Teeez product in the February Goodiebox, the Teeez Trend Cosmetics Be Blushious, and I quite like the brand.
The Bellápierre Shimmer Powder definitely seems good quality, I got the color Earth; a brownish-pinkish color that I haven’t worked with before and don’t know if it’ll work for me. But I’m excited to try it since it’s something different from what I usually use.
Lastly, the Medina perfume sample… I hate it. It’s the only thing in the box that I really can’t stand. I sprayed once on the lid of the box and now the entire room smells horrid. A lot of people will probably be pleased with it but I’m not one of them.
That was the May Goodiebox. If you’re interested in getting one yourself, you can do so here (: It’s 139,- per month and every box is full of surprises worth much more!
