The Goodbeing Review: August Edition

The Goodbeing Review: August Edition

IMG_2827.jpg

September - fall season - is now here. So, let's recap on Goodbeing's August box.

First, the contents. In the August box, I received some all-natural, good for the soul skincare products, including the Rutz Natural Physical Attraction Hydrating Serum, Good Medicine Lab Every Little Thing Balm, and Sade Baron Vulcano Castile Soap. To top it all off, I also got another Aila Cosmetics nail polish in a very fall-appropriate dark gray-taupe shade. 

To elevate my skincare routine. So in fall weather, it's a lot more brisk in the mornings. Thus, I find that my oil-based serums absorb into my skin a bit too quickly after cleansing. The Rutz Natural serum creates the perfect buffer for layering on my oil-based serum and moisturizer, since it's a gel serum. Plus, the added hydration is pretty nice.

Next, this Good Medicine Lab balm has been a miracle worker for random dry patches, especially on my hands/cuticles, and for healing any cuts/broken skin. It also makes a great lip balm. Only downside is that it has a slight earthy, medicinal smell. It doesn't really bother me, but if you're sensitive to scents I would be cautious of this one. Nonetheless, I found this product to be super handy on my recent trip to Seattle. 

The Sade Baron Vulcano Castile Soap--this product checks all the boxes on the list of things I look for in a body wash. It has detoxifying properties from the activated charcoal, making it very suitable for those who suffer from body acne, like me. However, this liquid soap contains an arsenal of hydrating ingredients--avocado oil, cocoa butter, coconut oil, olive oil, to name a few. This product also smells soooo delightful and fresh because of jasmine and peppermint. I have yet to try it as a face wash, but I definitely plan to soon.

Lastly, the Aila Cosmetics nail polish. First of all, I love Aila Cosmetics' nail polish for several reasons. The formula glides on smoothly, doesn't dry out my nails, and is cruelty-free. The nail polish also removes easily with the Aila Cosmetics wipe or regular nail polish remover. I'm pretty obsessed with the shade I received in last month's box too. It's a perfect taupe-gray shade that is soft, yet has a slight edge. So perfect for the fall.

 

As always, special thanks to Goodbeing for gifting me their latest box. If you are trying to make the transition into clean beauty and lifestyle, this subscription box is a great start. Plus, it's very affordable at $24.95/month.
