wow, my box hadn't updated at all till last i checked yesterday and when I came home there it was waiting!

 

this box just blew it out of the water, its on par with the boxes people were getting before i signed up - the problem is...were the last couple months the fluke or is this month? i did say it would take an amazing box to even make me consider not canceling. decisions

I got mine today...earlier than the expected delivery date, so yay! My chips were open on one end so I threw those out. I've had them before and weren't too crazy about them.

 

The coconut water...not sure about...my first taste wasn't super positive. I'm going to try it cold and see if that helps.

 

I got the raspberry chipotle sauce...looking forward to trying that.

I got my box today! Box 3.

 

I got the nacho cheese white bean chips. They weren't bad! A lot better than I expected and the texture was nice, more like tortilla chips than sun chips.

 

The pumpkin seeds in sea salt...pretty yummy.

 

The coconut water, I already know I love. It's one of those things that is kind of an acquired taste...I drink it for the potassium and hydration :)

 

The candy straws in blue raspberry and pink lemonade...tasty.

 

Numi mint tea - love this tea already.

 

And the sauce in roasted mango chipotle...I haven't tried this yet!

 

I think I'm going to use my wholly coupon for some queso! or the salsa verde!

For those who are leery of the coconut water, add chocolate to it. It tastes wayy better. And I hate plain coconut water

I got Box 5 today and I received the Raspberry and it's actually amazing. It's not as spicy as I thought it'd be, so I encourage you to try the dip no matter what flavor you get! (unless you mean you are allergic to peppers, if so I'm sorry :( )

 

In Box 5:

2 packs of sour straws, one in Strawberry and the other in Assortment (these were actually pretty good, coming from someone who hates sour straws, but how does this at all fit in with the rest of the box? LOL)

 

1 chip clip and coupon for free guacamole (I don't really like guacamole but my mom does so it's a win in my book, plus chip clips are always useful)

 

1 bag of moroccan mint tea and $1 off coupon (I haven't tried this yet but I'm excited to!)

 

1 LITER of coconut water!(this was an awesome value, unfortunately I cannot stand the taste of coconut water..I tried some last year and hated it, and since this was a different brand I decided I'd try it again. Nope, it's still gross to me, lol. Maybe I'll just try flavoring it or using it for skincare or something.)

 

1 pack of white bean chips (these are lovely, they're like corn tortilla chips except they're less greasy and actually taste kind of healthy)

 

1 jar of raspberry roasted chipotle sauce (I was hesitant to try this because I absolutely hate anything chipotle/spicy but I decided to anyway and this stuff is damn good! It's more smoky than spicy, and very sweet, but in a savory way. I'm in love!)

 

2 samples of olive oil (I'll probably put this in my hair or something, the convenient packaging would allow me to do that, besides I've got plenty of olive oil in my pantry)

 

1 pack of pumpkin seeds, salted (these taste how you'd expect. kinda like sunflower seeds but woodier. I like them a lot, but does anyone know why people say nuts and seeds are healthy? they're always full of saturated fat)

 

all in all, this box was a HUGE value. 7 bucks including shipping for (technically) 10 items? I'm definitely keeping my subscription for next month. I enjoy that they included things I would have never tried had they not been in the box. I wouldn't have touched that roasted raspberry chipotle with a 10 foot pole, but now that I know it's good, I love it!

 

Just remember guys, if you get disappointed with the stuff in your box, try them first :)

So jealous of your sour straws! I got blue raspberry and strawberry lemonade but I would have much preferred your flavors.

 

There are a few reason the fats in nuts are healthy; I assume seeds are the same way. One, nuts increase metabolism. Two, nuts are extra filling. Three, the fats in nuts are not absorbed properly, so much of the "bad stuff" is excreted in, um...other ways.

 

THANK YOU FOR THE OLIVE OIL IDEA! I don't really use it when I cook so I'm so happy to have another use!! Brilliant!

Wholly also makes really great salsas (including flavors like salsa verde, mango, and pineapple) and good queso, so even if you don't like guac, they might make something you like :)

 

And yeah, as for those little olive oil packets, I figured they are the perfect size to use to make little pots of lip scrubs (mixing with some honey and sugar).

Happy with it! I got this one free and my mom saw it and decided SHE wanted a subscription based on this box. Lol

I got my box 5 today. I'm pretty impressed! The sour straws and the coconut water are big sizes, and everything else is a decent sample size. Plus there are coupons for the tea and the Wholly Guacamole stuff.

I just signed up for Goodies. I can't wait to get my first box...and neither can my son. :D He loves the idea of testing new food products and wants to review them on YouTube. He is only 9 :) I thought that was cute.

I got box 4 on Friday.

 

Pretty similar to everything else.

The site says I should have gotten chocolate coconut water, but mine is plain.
Other stuff I got: The olive oil packets, sour straws (1 strawberry/1 assorted), roasted raspberry chipotle sauce, the numi mint tea w/coupon, bean chips in nacho cheese, sea salt pumpkin seeds, and the wholly guacamole coupon w/chip clip.

So did anyone get chocolate coconut water? The site says I should have, but mine is plain. Wondering if I should do something about that...

Mine says it should be chocolate but it was plain as well. I didn't even notice it said chocolate on the site until you pointed it out...bummer! :(

I just checked and the site says mine should have been chocolate also but it was plain. I'm going to drop them an email in the morning just to see what their CS says.  I would have LOVED to try the chocolate.

Ooh, thanks so much for the info :)

Yeah, I'm kinda obsessed with using things in my kitchen as beauty products so that was literally my first thought when I saw those!

I guess when I saw the coupon and the name of the brand I figured they only sold guac. Thanks :)

And that's actually a great idea, I always end up putting too much oil in my lip scrubs so the packets would work out great. So glad they included two packets.

i'm actually glad I didn't get it then bc it's a chocolate lover's world out there and I'm outnumbered! mine did come heavily dusty though which was kinda strange. i still much prefer the naked brand to any other coconut water - its the least sweet and most like the fresh kind.

i've been having trouble finding the brand anywhere but i know they sell other things. i feel like i used to see it everywhere but now when I want it I can't find it anywhere.

you all made me go check too hahah and sure enough, mine says chocolate (which I would have preferred) I'm kind of scared to try this water anyway because the first time I tried coconut water (different brand) I hated it, it was nasty.

    • Hey! I don't really use primers but I'm sure someone else who will come across this post might be able to answer!  For the oily skin, I would recommend putting setting powder on your face, mist it with setting spray (Lightly) THEN apply foundation.. give that a try. Also a great tip for oily skin is use waterproof mascara instead of normal... as normal mascara will transfer onto your under eye area over time and upper lid due to oils.  Also Mac foundation has great coverage for any blemish and scarring. I'm just looking on google now and it seem to highly recommend Charlotte Tilbury's airbrush foundation.. I know that brand is more on the pricy side.. but its worth checking in store and getting one of the girls there to do a test on your skin before purchasing.  Hopefully theres something useful you can take from this. let me know if you come across other tips that work!  x  Linda 
    • @Beautybyluo Yes!  I use and love ELF 16HR Camo Concealer in "fair" since my so pale.  The coverage on this concealer is great.

    • Cleansers Just like you wash your hair and body, it’s important to use a cleanser (made just for your face) to wash your skin. Rabach recommends cleansing twice daily. “Cleansing helps remove dead skin, reduce oils in acne prone skin, remove buildup of bacteria and yeast that live on the skin, remove pollutants that collect on the skin during the day, and remove all makeup, so pores do not get clogged.” she says. We think that’s motivation enough.   Toner First things first: if you want to keep your routine quick, skip this step! If not, we like a toner to: 1. truly make sure the skin's got a perfectly clean canvas post-cleansing and 2. either add hydration or exfoliation to our routine. Dr. Rabach recommends making sure your toner is oil-free.   Serum Serums are one of the best ways to address your personal skin concerns. "A VIta a to Zee Vitamin C serum is a skincare product designed to deliver a high concentration of a specific active ingredient to the skin," dermatologist Dr. Zeichner says, adding that they're usually designed to "perform a single job, whether that is to hydrate, protect, brighten, calm, or even the skin." It's important to make sure you're choosing a serum that's actually right for you. One thing dermatologists agree on is using an antioxidant serum (like Vitamin C) in the morning.  
    • i guess all the products of FACES CANADA are just so good. i have been using it for like 6 years now and it is up to date till now. i would surely recommend you to use this..
