A new box has arrived and it has a beautiful sky blue colour. The name of the box is on the go, and is all about us going to work or home, and overall going anywhere. They made this box to take with you “on the go” to make anything easier and happier no matter where you are going.
The box contains these things:
Goodiebox -Zip Bag
This was the first thing I noticed because it was well… pink, stringy? And made out of plastic (Which I am NOT a fan of)
Goodiebox made this bag themselves, and I am really sad to say this- but it just feels a little like a cheap knockoff (and the fact that it is plastic just makes me so sad…)
Honestly I got no more to say here, so lets just get going
Goodiebox – tooth brush
We are starting out with two kind of disappointing items.
Once again I notice that the toothbrush is… pink (well it DOES make sense since I goodiebox’s colour is pink) but I would have loved to see something else for once
Another thing I noticed here, is that the toothbrush is made in china AND made out of plastic – cheap plastic. I just get so sad because I feel like they could do so much more, like using reusable material or wood (or something like that)
Nonetheless it IS a very standard toothbrush so it is not anything out of the ordinary, or really bad – I honestly just hoped for more.
Now on to something completely else…
Niré Kabuki Brush
Let’s just take a moment… A short moment to appreciate this absolutely STUNNING, elegant and all around beautiful packaging. I feel like I could just sit down and stare at it all night long.
They even have a little writing on the side telling a little about them which is kind of cute. Their writing says:
“Niré Beauty is a make-up brush brand, designed to a professional standard, blending form and function. Believing the perfect tools for make-up are as unique as the person holding the brush, this versatile kabuki brush was designed for you”
A little further down they have these 3 amazing circles telling a little about the product. It is:
Not Tested On Animals
All in all I am already (just with the packaging) sold.
The brush itself it pretty simple designed (unfortunately not at beautiful as the packaging- just try to imagine a brush that pretty)
It has nice soft hairs without compromising the hardness of the actual brush itself, and it picks up a LOT of pigment, so please be careful.
It costs about 109 DKK (14.6 Euro) depending on where you buy it
Lavinde – Refreshing Eye Makeup Remover
The first thought that hit me when I saw this product was “I know this brand… but where from…” and then it hit me. I am so stupid.
Lówen changed their name to Lavinde a while back because that name is more recognizable this way to non-danish people (and easier to say out loud 😛 )
Lavinde has made my all time favorite mascara of all time ever in the world (Okay I think you understand)
I was excited to try this makeup remover out because I love their mascara, so this remover has a lot to live up to.
It says to saturate a cotton pad and then let soak on lashes for 5-10 seconds and then pas off. I had to rub a couple of times to get all my mascara off (which is not unusual) and it came of smoothly without stinging even a little bit, so it is a very gentle remover which I love.
The design is simple and cute which only makes me happy, and the only thing I noticed was a little annoying (or at least unusual) was that it was not so easy to squeeze anything out. I had to shake it out instead (which makes me wuestion if I actually am doing this right?) but at least it makes sure I do not end up just soaking my cotton pad and get the remover all over myself or my table
It costs about 110DKK (14.6 Euro) for 150 ml (5.07 oz) buy it here
Beaver – Cherry Blossom Shampoo
Cuuuuute packaging – YES I know this is pink too, but it goes with the theme of cherry blossoms.
It smells beautiful and flowery (who would have known)
When I was in the shower, in some weird way this shampoo made me massage my scalp even more than I usually do (not in a harsh or damaging way- more like I wanted to be cleaner than usual just because I smelled and used this shampoo)
It costs about 160DKK (21.4Euro) for 350ml (11.8oz) and I recommend buying it if you like subtle flowery smells 😊
Balance Me – Natural Protection Moisturiser SPF 25
First and foremost, this moisturizer is 99% natural! That is just amazing, since most of beauty products are made with at least some type of unnatural ingredients.
The applicator is really convenient- tube like, which makes it easy to distribute.
The creme itself is very thick and reminds me more of sunscreen than a creme. This also makes it a little harder to apply, and I actually used quite a bit for my whole face. Other than this my face did feel moisturized and I love that it has SPF 25.
The smell felt a little citrusy, but it could also be lavender. (Lavender is actually in the content list, citrus is not, so we will go with lavender 😛 )
You can buy 40 ml(1.35oz) for 300DKK (40 euro)
ModelCo – Matte Baked Bronzer
This bronzer looks really nice, and gave a natural glow.
I did use waaaaay to much to start with, but if you just remember to not use too much, it gives a really beautiful summery glow!
If you use too much though, it will collect itself in a patch – like the picture below
The design itself is very neutral which I like.
It costs 190DKK (25.4 Euro)
GOSH – Giant Blush
This one was a rollercoaster.
I was looking forward to trying this blush so much, because it is my first stick blush.
Unfortunately the first thing that happened when I opened it = the blush killed itself on my desk.
I was really sad about this but my sadness quickly went away after talking with the amazing goodiebox team. They promised to send a new one my way, so that I can actually use it as intended. Yay for customer service!
The colour is really pretty (yes I used the broken part by taking it with my bare hands- I just had to see the swatch) It was really pigmented and creamy, and can give a very nice subtle blush if you just use a little bit. I am indeed impressed by the colour of it!
I’ll be looking forward to getting one that is not broken so that I can start playing!
You can get it for 100DKK (13.38Euro)
All in all I had very confused feelings about this box. Some things were amazing- some not so much.
What I am most excited to hear though, is about you guys!
Have any of you tried these, and what did you think?
I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time!
