February Goodie Box Unboxing | February 2014

Hey here is my February Goodie Box Unboxing video! Sorry this is a little bit late again, but not as late as last month at least...

If you haven't heard of Goodie Box is a New Zealand monthly subscription box that is similar to the Birchbox in US. You pay $25.00 NZD plus $5.00 shipping each month and you get at least 5 goodies in the box, either deluxe sample or full size ones. (CLICK HERE to get your own one)

Here is my unboxing video. Watch it down below or CLICK HERE to watch on YouTube.

The product info card for this month. For those of yous are more knowsie about Goodie Box ;)

1. Skinfood | Exfoliating Cleanser
Full Size 100ml, RRP $14.00
I got full size sample, values $14.00

Official Description:

This gorgeously natural New Zealand facial scrub will get your skin ready. Exfoliating prevents breakouts and promotes youthful skin, win win! Paraben Free, enriched with Aloe and Sweet Almond to sooth, nourish and moisturise; now that's a treat you need! TIP: If you would like you can use this scrub gently all over body.

My Thoughts:

This product is quite nice but I wouldn't say it's the best facial scrub I've every tried. I way prefer using Shiseido's exfoliating facial cleanser to exfoliate my face. But for the price you pay for, it's not bad!

2. St. Moriz | Self Tanning Mousse
Full Size 200ml, RRP $20.00
I got 100ml sample, values $10.00

Official Description:

This light mousse formula glides on for an easy streak free application every time. Get ready to glow. TIP: Apply using gloves or a tanning mitt to avoid staining your hands.

My Thoughts:

I've already got full size product of this St. Moriz Self Tanning Mousse in shade Dark, which I've been using over a year and absolutely love it! Now they gave me the shade medium to try out which is awesome. Also this is in 100ml size which is amazing size to be a sample!

3. Swisspers | Aloe Everything Balm
Full Size 50ml, RRP $15.00
I got full size sample, values $15.00

Official Description:

You'll be ready for anything and everything with this beauty in hand. High in moisture and deliciously aloe scented to soothe and protect. Easily absorbs into your skin to work its magic! Brilliant to remove stubborn eye makeup, or as a brow gel to sculpt your brows.

My Thoughts:

I was like "Shit this is a giant balm to use for lips" when I first saw it, but then I realise you can actually use it anywhere that has dry skin. I really like how it feels on the skin and I like to use it around my cuticles :) 

4. Dentek | Scrub Betweens
Full Size 40 pack, RRP $10.70
I got 5 pack sample, values $1.34

Official Description:

Enhance those pearly whites. Dentek's dental picks allow for gentle use around your gums, with the thousands of micro-bristles working to softly scrub away plaque and food. Recommended by dentists worldwide.

My Thoughts:

I found this dental picks is too wide to go between my teeth but works on Joe. I wouldn't buy it myself, rather using dental floss.

5. Manhattan | Soft Matte Lip Cream
Full Size 2.5g, RRP $15.00
I got full size sample, values $15.00

Official Description:

All the way from Denmark we bring you teh perfect pout enhancer. Deliciously scented these lip creams' pretty shades will bring out your lips' natural beauty. They dry matte for a no-smudge, non-sticky finish that lasts for hours. Apply lightly with the doe-footed brush and allow to dry. You'll be hooked.

My Thoughts:

From packaging to smell and finish, everything seems IDENTICAL to NYX Matte Lip Cream to me. I love NYX Matte Lip Cream so I do love this product too! The shade I received is gorgeous and very pigmented. Love!! <3

6. Celebrity Slim
Full Size 1 sachet, RRP $6.00
I got full size sample, values $6.00

Official Description:

Get to know Celebrity Slim! This diet approach comes with sass and a lifestyle plan, to maintain the great new you! Each shake sachet is filled with protein, vitamins and carbs. Now here's the kicker; married with several key nutrients like Green Tea Extract, Soy Protein, you will feel fuller for longer, which means less trips to the cookie jar.

My Thoughts:

As you guys know I do love healthy eating and know a lot about it. I had a look of the nutrition info at the back of the packaging. THIS STUFF IS RUBBISH!!! This is just a tasty little sachet that doesn't contain high enough protein, and way too much sugar and carbs in the packaging. And $6 for each sachet is ridiculous! I way rather to keep using my protein powder which only contains less than 1g of carbs and 1g of fat out of 30g single serving!

Price of Goodie Box: $25.00 + $5.00 shipping = $30.00/month

Value of this month's box: $61.34

Honestly, this box is waaaaay better than last month's one for me! I really enjoy these four products: Skinfood Exfoliating Cleanser, St. Moriz Self Tanning Mousse, Swisspers Aloe Everything Balm and Manhattan Soft Matte Lip Cream. The box is so worth $30, so winning for this month for sure! Hope they'll keep it up like this for the next a few months too.
