April Good Green Box*!




Hello! Today I'll be talking about the April Good Green Box*. Now I was impressed with the March Good Green Box, but the April box is even more amazing, and frankly I'm wondering how long they can continue to improve for? When my April box arrived, it wouldn't even close properly, that's how jam-packed it was with natural goodies! It was freakin' bursting at the seams, which is exactly what you want out of a monthly subscription box; value for money and a crapload of exciting products to try! I unboxed this baby on my Insta Stories, but if you missed that hilarious catastrophe, you can check out what's in the April Good Green Box below!



What's In The Box?
Nuori Vital Foaming Cleanser (100ml)
Zuanna Cosmetics Smoothing Minerals Exfoliating Mask (10g)
Keeko Oil Activated Coconut Charcoal Powder (15g)
Raw Body Skincare The Original RAW Scrub (mini packet, size unspecified)
MooGoo Cow Lick Lip Balm (5g)
Organyc Feminine Hygiene (1 pad + 1 panty liner)
Amazing Oils Magnesium Sports Recovery Wipe (1 wipe)
Pukka Elderberry & Echinacea Tea (1 teabag)
Pukka Detox Tea (1 teabag)

I'm most excited by the large bottle of Nuori Vital Foaming Cleanser, what a generous size! This contains a fruit enzyme complex and claims to have revitalizing and smoothing qualities. This cleanser is made in Denmark with super-fresh ingredients and is worth $50! Each Good Green Box costs $25 if you buy month to month, so the inclusion of this cleanser provides sensational value for money right off the bat.

The Zuanna Cosmetics Smoothing Minerals Exfoliating Mask contains Moroccan Rhassoul Clay and Marshmallow Root and is free from fragrance, preservatives, sulphates and synthetic ingredients. This is an Aussie owned company that I haven't heard much about, so I'm keen to try this multi-tasking skincare product. How cute are the little resealable packets though? I just find them so adorable! Hehe.

I'm going to admit the Keeko Oil Activated Coconut Charcoal Powder confuses me! The info card says it's a mouth wash, the packet says it's a facial detox and teeth whitening powder and I've given up and gone back to bed, lol. I gather this is another product with multiple uses, and I've just seen that the back of the packet says you can also use it as a face mask and spot treatment! Well enter this over-achiever in a Decathlon because I think it does everything! Handily housed in a resealable packet again, so you can be sure it will remain fresh as you get multiple uses out of it.

I can't wait to try the Raw Body Skincare The Original RAW Scrub out! I haven't tried anything from this brand before, and I'm loving that the formula is packed full of great quality 100% certified organic and natural ingredients. This particular scrub contains freshly ground organic coffee beans, organic coconut oil, Himalayan Rock Salt and organic coconut sugar. Sounds so refreshing!

The MooGoo Cow Lick Lip Balm is super cool! The packet says 'made from edible ingredients because what goes on the lips gets eaten.' I love that! I've been trying this out and not only is it really moisturising, it also tastes great (when ingested with wear. I don't suggest spreading it on your morning toast). It contains honey and emollient oils to condition and soften the lips, Allantoin to repair minor cuts (so this is a great one to reach for if you have dry, cracked lips) and mandarin essential oils for the flavour. I might pass this on to my son because it's so natural and safe to use!

So the April box includes some feminine hygiene products, namely the Organyc Feminine Hygiene packet, which has one pad and one panty liner in it. These products are certified organic cotton, super breathable, hypoallergenic, biodegradable and chlorine and plastic free. So this is a great way to try out this brand, that I'd never heard of before, and I'll be popping these individual pads into a snap lock Glad Bag and chucking them in my handbag. Hot tip: they fit perfectly into the snack-size snap lock Glad Bags.

In the first example of perfect timing, I have just started exercising daily, so the Amazing Oils Sports Recovery Wipe actually came in handy for me! I haven't exercised in f-o-r-e-v-e-r, so you can imagine how sore I am. The Recovery range is a magnesium product that contains wintergreen and menthol. The claim is that it aids or assists in the prevention of muscular cramps or spasms and supports healthy energy levels. I wiped it on my sore lower back and the menthol was immediately noticeable. I felt a slight tingling and cooling effect and I'm pretty sure the pain decreased, although as the tingling was also verging on numbing, I can't be 100% certain what I was feeling.

And in the second case of perfect timing, for health reasons I have decided to swap coffee for tea, which will come as a huge shock if you follow my caffeine-heavy Instagram account! So the Pukka Elderberry & Echinacea and Detox Teabags couldn't have come at a better time! All I know at this stage is that I like English Breakfast and Earl Grey, hot (purely because of Captain Picard from Star Trek. #nerdalert #trekkie4eva). Today I tried the Pukka Detox and I really enjoyed it! I appreciate the long string, because you can easily wrap it around the mug handle (I haven't advanced to teacups yet, lol) with the bag still reaching deep inside the mug. The organic herbs used are from fair trade, sustainable sources, so you can rest easy when you sip.



If you're interested in joining, head to the Good Green Box website, they have a few different options available. And if you like any of the samples, you can buy the full size in the Good Green Box Shop on their website!
