I hope everyone has been enjoying their weekend! I have received another GoodieBox, and the theme for July is Summer Fling. GoodieBox is a Danish beauty subscription box, so the boxes can only be shipped to Denmark, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands. Each box costs 169 kr / $25 a month and contains 5-7 items worth over 500 kr / $75.
In my box I received 6 items and 5 were full-sized. The items came in the standard black box and were wrapped in tissue paper. I think the theme Summer Fling is very appropriate for July, but I would have liked the box itself to be summer themed instead of just plain black.
Ilse Jacobsen Sun Seaweed Face Cream SPF 15 (Full Size): Ilse Jacobsen is a Danish brand, and this sunscreen is perfect for the summer. The sunscreen moisturizes the skin while protecting against UVA and UVB rays. The sunscreen is also waterproof without feeling greasy on the skin, and Ilse Jacobsen is cruelty-free. Even though it is recommended, I do not use sunscreen every day unless I am going to be outside for an extended period of time. However, with this sunscreen I am more likely to use it every day since it is specifically made for the face.
145 kr / $23
Mesauda Definitive Mascara (Full Size): Mesauda is an Italian brand, and this mascara adds drama to any summer makeup look. The mascara is an intense black color, and it adds extreme length and volume to the lashes. The mascara is also long-lasting and perfect for everyday makeup looks or special occasions. Mesauda is also cruelty-free. I have a ton of mascaras, but I am looking forward to trying this one out to see if it lives up to what it claims.
99 kr / $16
ModelCo Instant Brows (Full Size): ModelCo is an Australian brand, and this is a dual-ended brow pencil. One end is used to draw and fill in the brows with a natural color. The other end includes a brush with a wax formula that is used to style the brows. The pencil provides long-lasting results, and ModelCo is cruelty-free. I just received the ModelCo Blush Cheek Powder in my June 2017 GoodieBox, which I absolutely loved. I expect that this brow pencil would be great too, but I do not use any brow products.
115 kr / $18
Rodial Dragon’s Blood Eye Mask: Rodial is a UK brand, and this eye mask is used to reduce puffiness and dark circles while making the eyes appear brighter. Dragon’s blood is specifically used to lift, firm, and smooth the skin while reducing redness and inflammation. Rodial also does not test on animals. I have dark circles because I have not been getting enough sleep, so I am definitely looking forward to using this eye mask to help with my dark circles.
425 kr / $67 for 8 pieces
Weleda Nail Care Pen (Full Size): Weleda is a Swiss company, and this nail pen contains pomegranate, shea butter, and beeswax that replenishes and protects the nails and cuticles. The nail pen is quick and easy to use, and it applies a wax to the nails that keeps them well-groomed and healthy. Weleda also does not test on animals. I do not do much to my nails besides occasionally cutting them when they get too long, so I am interested in trying out this pen so I can take better care of my nails and cuticles.
95 kr / $15
Naobay Vitality & Shine Shampoo (Full Size): Naobay is a Spanish brand, and this shampoo contains rice protein and aloe vera that nourishes and moisturizes hair. The shampoo also has a sweet citrus scent, and it is vegan, cruelty-free, and contains 99% natural ingredients. I received the Naobay Oxygenating Cream Moisturizer in my September 2016 GoodieBox, and it is my favorite moisturizer to use, so I am definitely looking forward to using this shampoo.
185 kr / $29
Overall, I loved this box because it included products I have not received before like a sunscreen, nail care pen, and shampoo. I will use all of these items except for the brow pencil. This box also had a total value of 692 kr / $109, and it included a sheet of GoodieBox themed stickers.
