Green Grab Bag Subscription Review! July 2013

Hi!

Today’s review is for a company called Green Grab Bag, an all natural beauty box that let’s you decide what’s inside your box…or not πŸ™‚

To watch me open my Green Grab Bag, click play on the video below or scroll down to read my written review.

IMG_3891Green Grab bags offers a wide variety of natural, organic and/or vegan skincare, beauty products and hair care. They also recently created a build your box option that allows you to choose the samples that you are going to receive in that months box. I’m all about natural products and I was excited to see what brands would come in my Green Grab Bag; I received a surprise box, so I didn’t know what was coming.

The Box: Green Grab Bag

The Cost: $15/month for the level-one box

The card was very detailed and included all of the products in the box in addition to instructions on how to use them.

Free Download from Yogadownload.com

Value: Up to $10.00

Yogadownload.com is a great site that has all sorts of workout videos for cardio, abs, yoga, pilates and so much more! Their prices range depending on the length of the class and whether you want to download it or stream it. They even have some free classes on their site. I’m excited to use this free download, now I just have to decide what class I want to take!

Pura Botanica Hand Cream

Value: $1.00

I find that a lot of hand creams have too strong of a scent but I was pleasantly surprised with this one. It has a slight hint of Aloe and Vanilla and is supposed to be rich in antioxidants. Also, a portion of the proceeds go to the National Save the Sea Turtle Foundation so that’s pretty neat!

MUN No.1 Aknari – Nighttime Dream Youth Serum

Value: $6.30

I couldn’t believe the value of this tiny little vial of oil! After reading a bit about this serum I’m intrigued. “Prickly Pear Seed Oil and Argan Oil combine to transform the appearance of your skin, while soothing Rose Oil lightly scents your sweetest dreams.” You dab it on your face and neck before bed and over time it is supposed to even skin tone and diminish the appearance of fine lines!

Dr. Sponge Facial Cleansing Sponge

Value: $8.50

This sponge gently exfoliates and is mild enough for sensitive skin. Score! It’s main ingredient is Konjac which is infused with a lot of vitamins and proteins that are great for your skin.

Shea Terra Organics Cape Chamomile Shea Butter

Value: $3.50

I couldn’t find this exact product on their website but I found many other delicious scented and unscented shea butters. For those of you who aren’t familiar with shea butter it is a miracle worker. It’s great for treating eczema, dry skin, psoriasis, stretch marks, wrinkles and is safe for babies. Needless to say I am excited to give this one a try πŸ™‚

Buffalo Gal Starry Night Lip Lover

Value: $4.00

This balm had such cute packaging and smelt so yummy that I opened it and smeared it on my lips right away. It goes on super smooth and tastes like oranges. This balm will be going to immediate use!

IMG_3901

Fleegal Farms Sea Soap

Value: $2.00

This soap is all natural and vegan and it has sea salt in it to make it like a scrub on your body. When I opened my Green Grab Bag, I could smell the soap and it is a really nice, fresh scent. Like being at the beach!

Verdict: The value of this box is around $31.00 (a little more or less depending on which yoga class you download) which is double the cost! I love every product that I received and don’t feel like any of them were irrelevant or out of place. I think it’s really neat that you have the option to customize your own Green Grab bag because it still gives you the opportunity to try new products before you buy full-size, but it isn’t a complete mystery. This is a box I would definitely subscribe to myself!

Value: $1.75

This was the biggest sample packet I’ve ever seen! I’d like to try this product out myself as it’s supposed to naturally revive your curls and help to eliminate frizz. Just what I need!

III Sisters of Nature Natural Lengthening Creme

Value: $2.50

This product sounds really cool! It’s supposed to elongate, add length to your curls, waves, twist and kinks and give your hair added volume. This isn’t for my type of hair but I think I’ll pass this cream onto my friend Ramya to see what she thinks of it πŸ™‚

IMG_3721

Ori Essentials Cleansing Conditioner & Leave-In Conditioner

Value: $11.00 & $12.00

These two products sound perfect for curly hair and they are full size! They are meant to help nourish and clean your curls, without leaving them dull or dry. They help to detangle your curls so that they can be smooth, shiny and silky!

Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Threat Invigorating Shampoo and Conditioner

Value: $2.50

I had to resist eating this shampoo out of the bottle, it smelt delicious! I can tell these products would be great for waking up and refreshing your scalp. They’re also free of sulfates and made with natural ingredients so that’s an added bonus!

Verdict: Overall, I was really happy with this box. The value was $44.70, more than twice the cost! The products really do seem specific to women that struggle with unruly hair and curls which I like because that is what CurlKit says they’ll deliver! I was happy that they included a few other goodies in the box just to mix things up but still didn’t skimp on the haircare products at all.
