What's In My Good Green Box?




Hi guys! I recently received the Good Green Box prize I won in their Instagram giveaway towards the end of last year, and thought I'd run through what was inside! It's always exciting opening up a box when you don't know the contents, and I was pleasantly surprised with the natural beauty products and samples in this edition, despite the lack of an information sheet about the products included. Let's have a look!

Wotnot Facial Wipes for Normal/Sensitive Skin
This pack of 5 wipes will certainly come in handy as I seem to go through wipes like nobody's business! They contain certified organic aloe vera, rosehip and sweet almond oils and are free from drying chemicals. I've tried these before as they came in the March Good Box (read my thoughts on that here) and love their effectiveness and lovely fragrance.

3/F/B Rose Tonic Facial Astringent
I haven't heard of this brand, so hopefully I've typed it correctly as there's no info sheet and it's not on the Good Green Box website! Anyway this product excites me as I've just finished the Akhal Organic Rose Hydrolat from the July Good Green Box and absolutely loved it! I imagine this is similar, being a facial astringent with a rose scent. Can't wait to start this little bottle!

Springfields Lavender Soothing Facial Cream
This comes in quite a luxe-looking brown glass jar and is a fairly generous size, however the scent is quite subtle. Lavender is normally one of those overpowering scents for me, so it's probably good that this has a mild fragrance. Lavender is thought to help you sleep, so I imagine this would be great to pop on before bed.

Fresh Face Skin Mystery Product
Hello mystery product! This is literally a white plastic tub that says Fresh Face Skin on the lid and that's it, no further labelling. Nor is it on the Good Green Box website under any of the Skincare sections. I just Googled and Fresh Face Skin is the brand name and they seem to mainly sell overnight healing creams, so that might be what this is. Who knows!

Black Chicken Axilla Deodorant Paste
This 100% natural deodorant paste contains shea butter, coconut oil and camelia tea oil and the essentials oils of peppermint, cajaput, mandarin, clove, rose, geranium, lime, lavender and cedarwood. I'm not the biggest fan of natural deodorants, but I'll always give something a go. And this does smell quite pleasant!

Pukka Matcha Green Teabags
I received two Pukka teabags from the Matcha Green range, one Clean and one Supreme. The clean one is described as 'a fresh burst of pure organic green tea with a luscious lemony lift', whilst the supreme version is 'a vital wellspring of organic whole leaf green tea and the finest matcha.' Lord knows I drink too much coffee, so I can't wait to get some healthy green tea into me!

Bondi Wash Hand Cream and Body Lotion
I love the designs on the front of theses sample sachets! The Tasmanian Pepper & Lavender Hand Cream uses Australian plant-based botanicals to naturally soothe your hands, and the Sydney Peppermint & Rosemary Body Lotion blends all-natural active botanicals with Australian Flame Tree for soft, moisturised skin. I will be doing a February Sample Challenge, so I'm saving up all my sachets to go hell for leather next month and see how many I can use up. Stay tuned  for a blog post on that!

  10. Interesting box! One of these days I'll get around to subscribing to Good Green Box...and Peony Parcel...for me they seem to be the 2 best sub boxes going around.

    I've used the WOTNOT wipes before & I liked them before Essano's Micellar Soothing Sensitive Wipes came into my life. I've heard a lot about that Black Chicken deodorant paste, but I'd be reluctant to shell out for a full-size at this stage. I'd like to try before I buy.

    1. Good Green Box and Peony Parcel would be my picks too, for subscription boxes. The Essano Micellar Wipes sound amazing, I do have a lot of different wipes packets on the go right now though haha!
