Makeup, Organic Tan & More (August Edition)

Are you excited, pets? It’s me, your faithful servant Egor, here to present to you the shiny and shimmery August Good Green Box, full of magical organic and natural surprises. What makes this month special? It’s that we have three makeup samples in this GGB! They are from some of our absolute favourites, like Zuii Organics, whose smoochable Certified Organic Flora lipsticks are Flora-mazing! They use orange oil, frangipani oil, and sunflower oil to give you perfect every-day lippie. You’ll be tickled pink to try TWO shades this month, specifically Primrose and Cashmere! Keep your eye on the GGB shop for more surprises from Zuii Organic!

Our other makeup sample included is the Luna Minerals Mineral Bronzer, in the specific shade of ‘wow-I-didn’t-realise-I-had-cheekbones-until-now’. This totally organic honey bronzer will give you a resplendent glow and is not tested on animals! We can’t give all the attention to the makeup samples though (I love all my children equally), so it’s time to talk face and/or body. Harmoni’s Kiss give natural deodorant a new face (err…armpit) with their Aloe, Lavender, and Lime Roll-On. It utilizes the antiseptic qualities of witch’s hazel and citrus to keep you smelling like a spring breeze, and is a fierce contender against chemical and aluminium deodorants.

We’re super-duper lucky to feature a range of ELAN Essentials products for our face and body, one of which you’ll receive in your box. We have two cleansers – the fruity Purifying Body Cleanser with papaya and pineapple enzymes to clear off dead skin, and the Soothing Milk Cleanser – get clean and fresh with calming aloe vera and cucumber seed oil. Get mint with their Nourishing Body Lotion (packed with avocado and peppermint leaf oil), or smooth and supple Balancing Moisturiser! And last but not least, they’ve snuck in a cheeky Hydrating Toner! Not that we mind. Now you can meet up with your other Good Green Boxers, and when there’s five of you, you can complete an entire beauty routine!

I’m a bit daffy, over this company- A Bit Hippy – and their featured product: Flake Fairy. The powder is a vegan, natural micro-exfoliator that is gentle enough for everyday use, so even the fussiest faces will be pleased! Bringing up the rear, is our preferred tanner for our rear: The Divine Company’s Natural Bronze Gradual Tanner. Reign in your impulse control with this easy applicable, gradual tan, which may stop you making a bright-orange mistake with a harsher, different tanner. Now you can stay organic, stay natural, and stay human-coloured when you decide to bronze up!

Try them in August Good Green Box – only $25 per month or buy from Good Green Box Shop!
