Health Is Beauty

Eco Chick Giveaway: Goodebox Personalized Healthy Beauty for You!


If you read Eco-Chick regularly, you know there are a growing number of amazing, clean, eco-friendly beauty brands making products that are not only healthier to slather on, but that actually perform just as well, if not better, then their toxin laden counterparts.  

If you’re anything like us, we love trying new products, always searching for that great new eye cream that addresses our latest issue, or the perfect lip color for that special night out but sometimes it’s tough to know what to buy.  What’s actually clean?  Does it really work? Enter Goodebox, a new service providing trial sized, healthy & sustainable beauty and personal care products.  

Goodebox allows you to take the goodes for a test drive before forking out for the full size.  For only $16 a month, members get six trial size products, the selection of which is customized according to skin type, hair type, skin tone and other preferences.  The piece that really sets Goodebox apart from other beauty sample services is their commitment to working with only thoroughly evaluated brands committed to using effective, non-toxic ingredients that respect people, animals and planet.  

It’s a fun way to try new products that have been tested and approved by people with the experience to know when something performs, like Kristen Arnett, for example, the celebrity green make-up artist who’s curating the first Goodebox.  What’s more, members get a discount on everything included in each month’s Goodebox, making it pretty easy to recover the membership fee  PDQ if you have even a modest addition to beauty & wellness products.  

If you want to sign-up, you can just squeak in to receive the March box as long as you join by March 3rd. Interested in trying it for free? We have 10 March Goodeboxes to give away.  Simply like the Goodebox Facebook page (and the Eco Chick page if you haven’t yet!) and drop a comment below letting us know you have done so. We have ten to give away, so that’s great odds! Giveaway is open from noon on Friday, March 2, 2012 until noon on Thursday, March 8th, 2012.
