I have received my first GoodieBox for the year, and the theme for January was Cheer Up. 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 / $28 a month and contains 5-7 items worth over 500 kr / $83.
I received 7 items in this box and 6 were full-sized. Like last month’s December 2017 GoodieBox, this box is more like a drawer, which I like. The products in this box are for your skin and smile to give you a spark for the new year.
Comme Deux Face Mask in Pink Paint (Full Size): Comme Deux is a new Danish brand created in collaboration with GoodieBox, and I received one of three masks. The Pink Paint mask is for hydration and radiance, and all three masks are a bright color like paint. The mask is worn for 15 minutes, and it leaves the skin soft, smooth, and moisturized. Comme Deux is also vegan, perfume-free, and cruelty-free. I have oily acne-prone skin, so I would have preferred to receive the Blue Paint (Pore Refining & Mattifying) or Yellow Paint (Purify & Glow) mask. I will still try this mask out, and if I like it, I will look into trying the Blue Paint mask.

Sunstar GUM Soft Picks Advanced (Full Size): Sunstar is a Swiss brand, and these picks are effective and gentle at cleaning between the teeth so you can have the best smile. The picks also come in a small box so they are easy to use on the go. When I saw these picks I was very surprised because I expect high quality beauty products in my GoodieBox, not something for the teeth. My boyfriend also has a ton of these picks, but I will use them eventually.
45 kr / $7.50
Cool Care Dry Brush Body (Full Size): This brush makes the skin happy, and it is used as needed or every morning to exfoliate the skin, initiate blood circulation, and give the skin a glow. I cannot find anything out about this brand, but I am assuming it is Danish since the tag on the brush is in Danish. I also do not know if it is cruelty-free and if the brush is made with synthetic hair. To be honest this body brush reminds me of the brushes my mother would buy for the goats at the children’s zoo. I find this brush a bit weird and the bristles feel somewhat rough. I am not sure about using this brush because I want to go brush some goats now.
119 kr / $20
Carmex Original Lip Balm (Full Size): Carmex is an American brand, and this lip balm takes care of dry winter lips. The balm moisturizes and softens the lips, and the added menthol cools and soothes the lips. I have not used this lip balm in many years, but I have been needing a new balm, so I am glad I got this one. Carmex is cruelty-free.
41,95 kr / $7
Sleek Makeup Crème To Powder Blush in Pink Peony (Full Size): Sleek Makeup is a British brand, and this blush adds some color to the gray times. I received a blush shade based on my beauty profile, and Pink Peony is a bright pink shade with a satin finish. The blush has good pigment, and it is easy to apply. The blush is also buildable and long-lasting, and Sleek Makeup is cruelty-free. I previously received the Sleek Makeup Face Contour Kit in my November 2017 GoodieBox and the Sleek Makeup i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette in Au Naturel in my February 2017 GoodieBox, so I am excited to get a blush especially since I regularly wear blushes. The contour kit and palette are both good quality, so I am expecting the same from this blush.
70 kr / $12
Balance Me Radiance Face Oil: Balance Me is a British brand, and this fave oil provides nourishment for the skin during the winter. The oil is used in the morning and evening, and contains numerous oils. The almond and moringa oil moisturizes the skin, the buriti nut oil firms and tones, the rosehip fruit oil evens out the skin tone, and the yarrow leaf oil and the chamomile flower oil are anti-inflammatory and soothe the skin. I have been weary of using a face oil, but I think I will start using this one at least in evening since it has a lot of good benefits. I have previously received several products from Balance Me like the Balance Me BB Natural Perfection SPF 25 in my October 2017 GoodieBox, the Balance Me Instant Lift Pore Minimiser in my October 2016 GoodieBox, and the Balance Me Super Moisturizing Hand Cream in my August 2016 GoodieBox, so I hope this oil will be effective. Also, Balance Me is cruelty-free.
350 kr / $58 for 30 ml
Figs & Rouge Invisible Pores Night Detox Serum (Full Size): Figs & Rouge is a British brand, and this serum is used to make your skin happy and feel good. The serum is used under a night cream to deep clean the skin, unclog and minimize pores, reduce skin impurities, and give the skin a glow. I do not currently use a serum, so I am looking forward to using this one since it seems to have a lot of good benefits. Also, Figs & Rouge is cruelty-free.
255 kr / $42.50
Overall, this month’s box had a few surprising products like the gum picks and dry brush. I am most excited to try the blush and mask though, and I will eventually use all of these products. This box also had a value of 777 kr / $130.
