Review: Good Green September Subscription Box

It is no secret by now just how much I love Good Green and their subscription boxes. I love that they include a large variety of trial and sample size natural products that you can test out without having to commit to the full-size upfront. It is also one of the most affordable natural beauty boxes I have found. Today I wanted to share my thoughts on the products included in September's box. Keep reading below for my review!

(Tip: you can search my blog for reviews of previous month boxes; just type 'good green' into the search box on the right side of my blog.)

Woohoo Deodorant Paste
I have previously reviewed this product here (previously named Happy Skincare Deodorant Paste), so check out my thoughts! Spoiler alert; I love it!

Ethique Hair Solid Conditioner Bar
I was really curious about this bar, as I have tried solid shampoo bars before, but not conditioner bars. This conditioner bar smells beautifully and coconutty and is in the shape of a heart (cute!). I love how the packaging is no waste as you use all of the bar up and then compost the cardboard packaging. The soap bar does not suds up as a regular bar would, but rinses cleanly without leaving any residue in my hair. My hair feels soft and gently detangled, and leaves my hair feeling similar to when I use a silicone-free conditioner. I find that conditioner bars are a bit more time consuming than liquid as you have to work the bar into the ends of your hair, but it is worth it for the eco aspects and affordability aspects.

At One Skincare Bliss Body Oil
I have been curious about the brand of At One for a while, so I was glad that one of their products were included in this month's box (albeit a small size!). This body oil is hydrating but light on the skin and has a citrus fragrance owing from the essential oils included. I love the oils included that are known for their skin healing properties, like sunflower oil, apricot kernel oil, jojoba oil and avocado oil.

Natura Siberica Extra-Firming Hand Cream
This hand cream was extra hydrating and really got rid of any dry patches and sore peeling cuticles. It was not possible to tell from this sample whether the cream had any long term firming effects, however if you are looking for a natural and organic hand cream that really hydrates, this is a good option.

Love Your Scin Coffee Body Polish
I have tried many variations of coffee scrubs in my years of beauty blogging, so I was curious to see if this one stood out in any way. The first thing that impressed me was the fact that Scin use recycled coffee in their products. It also didn't have that overpowering coffee scent that coffee scrubs can have (perhaps the tea tree balanced the scent nicely?). I found it was a nice compact scrub that really seemed to exfoliate well and left my skin soft and hydrated. A little amount of this polish went a long way, which is great for your wallet!

Baimeni 100% Natural Face Oil
This was the only product that I was unable to try as I have been avoiding face products containing high amounts of oils and essential oils upon dermatologist advice. However, if you are a lover of essential oils this looks like a great blend and it smells beautiful.

Manda Made Replenishing Hair Treatment
This oil treatment contains a simple blend of coconut, argan, and tea tree oils. I recommend this product if you have dry thirsty hair. As with any hair oil treatment, you apply to dry hair from roots to ends, focusing on the driest parts. After the treatment has been left in for as long as possible, hair can be shampooed and conditioned as normal (shampooing twice is recommended to remove all oil). I find that after using this treatment that my hair is left soft, hydrated and shiny. A tiny amount of this product can also be used to smooth flyaways, a truly multipurpose product!

Everyday Good Co Biodegradable Bandages
These bandages are latex free, designed for sensitive skin and made with special adhesive glue. I was actually really excited to find these bandages in my box as I react to most bandages in the way of itchiness, redness and blisters. I fortunately have not had a cut since I received the box, so have been unable to try these out yet, however remain hopeful that these are going to be a great alternative for me. I love that 50% of the profit of these is donated to struggling communities. Everyday Good Co. also make clear and emoji (!) versions of these that you can find out more about on their website here.
