20160522_144702

I’ve taken a few months to post about the products in the Glowing Beets subscription box that I receive every month. I wanted to make sure I test and use each product, so that I am only blogging about/promoting products that I would personally use. I am not affiliated with or compensated by anyone, so I will keep it 100% real with you all! So far I have loved absolutely every box! I encourage anyone who wants to test out some green beauty/green living products to check out this subscription box! Glowingbeets.com

The December box was my first box. This box included a “Sally B’s Skin Yummies, Healing Hand Butter in Lavender Vanilla”, “Sweet Emotions Soaptions & Potions, Pumpkin Facial Mask”, “Sally B’s Skin Yummies, B Glossy Lip Gloss in Soft Kiss”, “Grateful Naturals, Pure Botanical Lip Balm in Vanilla Honesuckle”, “Mullen & Sparrow, Immortelle & Myrrh”, “Little Barn Apothecary, Body Oil in Honeysuckle+Grapefruit”, and lastly “Zabana Essentials, Facial Steamer in Herbaceous”.

Healing Hand Butter

This hand butter by Sally B’s Skin Yummies smells AMAZING! I love the lavender and vanilla scent that came in this box! The hand butter does such a great job at moisturizing my hands. Since I use the restroom so often and I’m a mom, I am constantly washing my hands. My hands get super dried out, but this really helps keep my skin smooth and hydrated. According to Skin Deep by EWG, this product is rated a 3 (on a 1-10 scale, 1 being the best for you) and contains a couple of ingredients that may be irritating or toxic. I personally really like this hand butter and will continue to use it!

Pumpkin Facial Mask

I had never tried a face mask prior to this one, but I loved it! This face mask from “Sweet Emotions Soaptions & Potions” is seasonal I believe and smells like pumpkin pie. Love love love the smell! This left my skin so soft and moisturized. I never knew that pumpkin was so good for your skin, but it has alpha hydroxy acids (smoothes & helps cell turnover) and a bunch of vitamins that can help with anti-aging. This mask is not on the Skin Deep by EWG website so there is no rating currently. There are only 7 ingredients and they are organic.

B Glossy Lip Gloss

Love love love this lip gloss! Such a soft, shimmery color which is what I like. I received this product because another had been sold out before I signed up for my Glowing Beets subscription. So glad I got to try it! Once again, I have to mention the smell of this product. It is so pepperminty (is that a word?)! I love the smell of peppermint so definitely a plus for me. When you apply it, it also tingles your lips a little bit from the mint. This lip gloss is rated a 2 by Skin Deep by EWG. It is also “EWG Verified” which means they have gone through extra steps to show their product meets strict health standards. This lip gloss gets two thumbs up from me!

Grateful Naturals Lip Balm

This tiny little tube of lip balm packs a punch. Love that the lip balm makes my lips feel moisturized and soft. I also am a Vanilla addict, so I LOVE the smell of this product! This is just a really good lip balm to carry around with you or keep in your purse! It is not rated on Skin Deep by EWG, but it has 6 ingredients and they are all natural.

Immortelle & Myrrh

This serum is full of nourishing oils for your skin! Seriously, this little bottle of goodness increases cell regeneration, smoothes, moisturizes, and has anti-aging benefits. It is not super oily, and I actually found that I like mixing it with moisturizer so it spreads on the skin better. The only thing I did not like so much with this product was the smell. I personally like a more fresh or fruity scent. This product has a combination of musk and floral to me, so it’s not my favorite. This product is not rated on Skin Deep by EWG.

Honeysuckle + Grapefruit Body Oil

I love love love this body oil! This oil has anti-aging benefits, and it smoothes and moisturizes! It does not leave me feeling super greasy and absorbs right into my skin. I put this on my whole body, including my face (not sure if you are “supposed” to do that, but I do). The scent is the perfect balance of floral and fruity, and kinda gives me summer vibes. I love things that remind me of summer! So far this has been my favorite body oil that I have tried! This is not rated on Skin Deep by EWG.

Herbaceous Facial Steamer

This facial steamer felt like I stepped into a spa with it’s herb scent! This product allows you a few minutes to just sit and relax, while it steams and clears out all the pores in your face. You and your face will feel refreshed after this for sure. Love this facial steamer!
