Love Goodly Aug/Sept 2018 Unboxing & Review


This is a little bit (okay, a lotta bit!) late, but better late than never, right? Today I’m sharing my most recent Love Goodly box. Love Goodly is a bi-monthly cruelty free & vegan beauty subscription box. The box is $34.95 bi-monthly and you get over $80+ worth of products in each box. They also have an online store where you can purchase brands that have been in previous boxes. I’ve been subscribed to Love Goodly for a while now and I like that you can skip your next box if you wish, which I’ve had to do a couple of times. You can read my previous unboxings here!

Like most subscription boxes, you get a card telling you what’s inside and it’s value. This box had $88+ value and I got 5 full sized items.

Everything Branded – Stainless Straw – $3.50

First up is this awesome stainless straw! I love that this was something we got in our box because I’ve been wanting to purchase one for daily use.

Axiology Natural Lipstick – The Goodness – $30

Next up is a lipstick from Axiology in the shade the Goodness. First of all, I love the packaging. The graphic designer in me gets so happy when I see cute packaging for products.

The lipstick comes in a pretty gold bullet case and I think it’s gorgeous.

The shade is a pretty nude with some shimmer. It’s definitely not a color that I would wear everyday, but it is a stunning color. I think I’ll be wearing it on Thanksgiving!

Balanced Guru – Organic Balanced Scalp Treatment – $23


Here we have a scalp treatment, which is something I’ve never seen or heard of before. This claims to alleviate the need for dry shampoo since it’s supposed to balance the oils that are already on our scalp (I’m a bit skeptical).

I like the bottle that it comes in and it has a dropper so it would make it easier to apply to your scalp. I have yet to try this out, but I’m curious about it since I get oily pretty quickly sometimes.

Doctor Rogers – Restore Healing Balm – $30

This is a petroleum free balm that can help with many skin ailments, like chapped lips, dry/cracked skin, to cover cuts/scrapes and more. It’s safe for sensitive and injured skin and I must say, this stuff is a lifesaver.

I like the packaging a lot, too. It’s in a metal tube and again, reminds me of the olden days. I really like to use this stuff on my cuticles – my hands get super dry because I work with paper and boxes all day at work. It also works wonders on the lips too!

Hippeas – Vegan White Cheddar Snack – $2

Last, but not least is a bag of Hippeas! I’ve never heard of this brand before but I was super stoked to try them out. I love chickpeas and I love things in puff form, so this is a win win for me. White cheddar flavor is also a win in my book! I like the price of these, I think they’re affordable and they’re so tasty. I definitely want to try out some of their other flavors!

Welp, I hope you enjoyed the post! What subscription boxes are you subscribed to? Let me know!

Thanks so much for reading, as always <3

LoveGoodly June/July 2017 Unboxing


I’m really bad at not spending money…I constantly tell my boyfriend to take my debit card away from me but that won’t help me any since PayPal exists and I cannot be stopped.

ANYWAYS, previously I told you guys that I would be canceling my LoveGoodly subscription. Well I did, then I saw that the June/July box was going to have a FULL sized KVD everlasting liquid lipstick in it and I hopped onto LoveGoodly so quickly to resubscribe and I’m happy that I did! This is a treat for me every other month and I really do enjoy opening it and trying out the new products in it. I’m happy that this whole box wasn’t just beauty related items, so if you’re curious to see what I got, keep on reading! (I apologize for the crappy pictures, used my iPhone since my ring light was not cooperating!)

So this is the KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lovecraft which is a beautiful mauve color. If you’ve been around for a while, you know I don’t like the Colourpop Ultra Matte lipsticks but I love this one. It doesn’t feel drying on the lips like the Colourpop ones do. The KVD one definitely has a creamier consistency while the Colourpop ones have a wet consistency. Anyways, SUPER excited to wear this in the fall. Mauve looks really good on me, not to toot my own horn or anything but gotta give yourself compliment when you can, y’know?

I was surprised to see these in my box, but I’m kind of glad that they were included. My nails are so brittle and break all the time so I hope these supplements will help me out. They are vegetarian which is a mega plus. I wonder if they’ll help you my skin problems to…I’ll keep you updated on Instagram, so make sure you’re following me there!

Ah! This is so cute. So this is a hair tie that also doubles as a bracelet (or a bracelet that doubles as a hair tie). They were giving this turquoise color away in boxes or a black one and I’m happy I got the turquoise one! The color is one of my favorites and I love the bracelet. Really cute, really simple but also handy! GemTye also has a lot of different styles so check those out.

This is a pretty pink polish from FABY. I’ve never heard of them before but they are 7 free (meaning no yucky chemicals) and they’re vegan if that’s something that is important to you. This one is called “Hula Hoop Pink” but I don’t think it’s available for purchase anymore but they do have loads of other colors that are pretty as well.

Here is a pin from Fred + Far which is a company that promotes self-love. They make jewelry to remind you to love yourself and honor yourself. I think this is an amazing idea! I already put the pin on my backpack and I can’t wait to show it off on campus.

Here is the card with all of the prices and details if you were curious! This month’s box supports Farm Sanctuary <3

I hope you enjoyed the post!

Thanks so much for reading, as always <3

Xoxo, Rae

Love Goodly April/May 2017 Unboxing


Hello my loves! You know how much I love getting the Love Goodly boxes every other month, but unfortunately – I need to stop my subscription because I’m getting an apartment and money will be tight, but also because I have SO much stuff that I don’t know what to do with! I’m a hoarder, so I have a ton of stuff and I never really get the chance to fully use it all. Maybe at a later date I’ll resubscribe (since I really did enjoy this box!) But anyways…let’s get into the goods.

100% Pure is an amazing brand! I love their foundation and primer and I’ve been wanting to try their other products. This is the maracuja oil mascara in black which is colored by black tea. It’s full of natural, nourishing ingredients so your lashes will look ahhhmazing with or without the mascara! This retails for $25, so that’s pretty much the cost of the sub box.

Next up is this Vitamin C body polish from One Love Organics. I loooove body scrubs since I have such dry skin and they just make me feel refreshed, y’know? I can’t wait to try this bad boy out on my problem areas, since they claim that it will give you supremely soft, luminous skin. (I’ll keep you updated, hopefully lol) I also love the packaging! This retails for $48, so we’re already over the price of the box! They have a rewards program on their site, which is really cool. There’s nothing better than getting rewarded for spending your money, right?! Sign up here and get a $5 coupon.

I’ve never used a Konjac sponge before, but I’ve always wanted to try one. I love that they’re biodegradable and chemical free. It looks like using this sponge has incredible benefits, according to their website. I’m not exactly sure how to use it, but they say to soak it then just use like a regular sponge? I’ll let you know how it goes – maybe I’ll be forever changed!

Last, but definitely not least! These are eye masks from 100% Pure that I’m super excited about. Rhian HY always talks about them on YouTube and she’s my favorite, so whatever she says, goes. I have really dark circles under my eyes sometimes, because of how fair I am so I really think these will come in handy! I like how they sell singles or you can buy them in a pack.

So, that’s everything in this Love Goodly box! I really enjoyed getting these and I really did enjoy the products I received in past boxes. I hope you liked the unboxing posts!

Thanks so much for reading, as always <3

Xoxo, Rae
