The Green Goddess Shop Beauty Box is a monthly subscription box containing 4-5 luxury organic, all-natural, and earth-friendly makeup and skincare samples (with the occasional full sized product thrown in too). It is $20 a month and is available in 1, 6, or 12 month terms that will automatically renew until you cancel. There is a $5.95 shipping charge, but this applies only to the first box!
My box certainly looked impressive! The items were shipped in a recycled cardboard box and had shredded paper for cushioning.
The product information card had a lovely scene for this time of year and mentioned that $1 from every purchase made at the Green Goddess Shop is donated to charity.
The flip side of the card listed the products in the box, a brief blurb about the item, and the price for full size. If you purchase one of that month’s featured items from The Green Goddess Shop you will save 20% off the price!
The first thing that I noticed was that all of the sample sizes came in sets of three! At first this bugged me for some inexplicable reason, but then I realized that it makes it easier to share with my daughters (or friends).
Shamanuti Pumpkin Enzyme Masque ($5?) I received 6 one-time use packets of this masque that reminded me of pumpkin pie mix. I smeared the generous contents of one of the packets over my face and it was thick enough for me to do housework without having it slide off my face. It did burn a bit though (pumpkin enzymes are naturally exfoliating) so those with sensitive skin may want to avoid this. It washed off easily enough and left my skin feeling soft.
ellovi Tinted Lip Butter ($5 and full sized!) There are only 6 ingredients in this food-grade lip butter that spreads like, well, butter! It has a shea butter scent/flavor and a very light plant-based tint. Deeply moisturizes with sunflower, macadamia, and coconut oils.
Lillian Eve Cuticle Cream ($13.50) I received 3 little pots of this luscious cuticle cream made from argan and sunflower oils. It is scented with lemongrass essential oil and I love it. Altogether these samples add up to 3/4 of the full sized product! I plan on sharing with both of my daughters so they can keep it on their nightstands.
Evelyn Iona Natural & Organic Green Tea Primer ($8.40) This product preps skin with aloe gel, green tea extract, and jojoba oil. It had a moisturizing feel to it after I spread it around but it didn’t leave my skin oily, only silky soft. The scent is very subtle.
I really enjoyed trying the products in my very first Green Goddess Shop Beauty Box! My box had a value of around $32, which is pretty good for a natural beauty box. I enjoyed trying the products, which were all new to me, and the multiples make it easy to share or throw in an overnight bag. I love that the products are all-natural, cruelty free, and vegan. I use a lot of stuff on my body every day and these can help reduce the amount of chemicals I come in contact with.

The Description: Every month we hand-pick 4 to 5 of our favorite makeup and skincare products, or introduce you to new products in the Beauty Box. You’ll receive large multi-use samples and maybe a full size, too, of a clean and green beauty product. All of these products provide serious results free of chemicals and synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in our beauty bag or on our bodies. Any item in the box can be purchased for 20% the month it is featured and, as with every purchase from The Green Goddess Shop, $1 is donated to charity.
The Price: $20.00 per month
