unboxing: Limited Edition Deluxe Goodebox to Benefit the Breast Cancer Fund

In honor of October being breast cancer awareness month, Goodebox teamed up with the Breast Cancer Fund to make 200 limited edition deluxe charity boxes and of course I had to have one!

Limited Edition
Deluxe Goodebox to Benefit the Breast Cancer Fund

Cost: $120 + free S&H. $20 from each box benefits the Breast Cancer Fund.

Boxes went on sale October 8th, and once all 200 boxes had sold they all went out in a batch with DHL Mail on October 15th. Mine was delivered to me today!

As is usual with Goodebox, the packaging is neat and careful, and the information card is thorough.

This wasn't a mystery box, all items included were listed on the sale page, but I'm still excited to have them here!

Juice Beauty Reflecting Glosses Full sizes 0.14 oz / 4 mL in Champagne, Guava and Pink value $15 each: $45

I've tried these before and they are really pretty glosses, nourishing and non-sticky. I like that three shades were included and am happy to have them!

CV Skinlabs Restorative Skin Balm Full size 0.5 oz / 15 mL value $26
Josh Rosebrook Cacao Antioxidant Mask Full size 1.5 oz / 45 mL value $60

I got this CV Skinlabs balm in my October Goodebox and loved it! It's crazy that the full size is only a half oz but it does spread far. This mask is the item I am most excited for! I love using cacao powder in my kitchen, and love the rich cacao scent of this mask! I'm hoping it works great, too.

Yarok Feed Your Moisture Shampoo 12 oz / 355 mL value $38
Marie Veronique Organics Pacific Lip Treatment Full size 0.85 oz / 25 mL value $68

I'll tell you tomorrow why I'm not thrilled to get a shampoo, but this one gets great reviews and I know I will easily find a good home for it. Marie Veronique Organics actually split into two companies recently, and this lip treatment is now from True Nature Botanicals. No worries, though! The expiration isn't until May 2016. I've never had such a pricey lip product before but am super excited to get it with this Goodebox discount!

Tatcha Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder Full size 2.1 oz / 60 g value $65

The packaging of this product is so nice, and that glass jar is gorgeous.. luxe! I can't wait to try this one!

The retail value of this box is $302.. incredible! All the items included are high end and indulgent, it must have been an expensive box for Goodebox to put together, not to mention the time taken to communicate and negotiate with the contributing brands. I think a $20 donation per box is not only reasonable, but generous, considering if there were 200 boxes sold that equal a $4,000 donation. Way to go, Goodeboxe, you've definitely impressed and thrilled me with this winner of a box!

  1. this looks like a really great box and a good value, too! i don't think I would buy most of those things on their own, too pricey, but its cool you could get them for a lower price.
