I haven't received a shipping notice yet.  

One thing I really don't like is the delay between being billed and shipping.

Do you mean the amount of time between being billed and shipping?

Yes, I know that it's common for a lot of companies to have such a long delay, but I really don't like it.  I guess I prefer the way BB or SS does it with only a short time between billing and shipping.

 I was billed by Goodebox around the 23rd last month, and now it's almost billing time again and I still haven't even received a shipping notice.

Just got my Goodebox.  This is my first subscription box ever that I was completely surprised by what I got (I usually have to peek at the spoilers).

I'm really happy to try everything.  One nice thing about this sub is that the products are all things that I never would have thought to buy, so it will be fun to be exposed to some new things.  And there were a LOT of products in this box

I'll be keeping this sub for at least another month.  Now I just need to figure out how to update my billing info before the next billing date.

That's too bad about the missing item.

I think I would have really liked the scent of your item #6.  Wish I had gotten that!

I used #1 & 3 last night & really liked them.  I used all of #1 - might need to buy more.

My step- lovey gave me her Goodebox yesterday. We got what you all got. Soap is fragrance of the second one mentioned.. I was impressed how they wrapped up the fragile items. And the pink bow is SO cute!! :) /emoticons/[email protected] 2x" width="20" height="20" />

Since I am bored to tears and also hurting with my injury, my step mom got me a subscription to what seems to be a new subscription  box called " Good and Lovely".

I don't know if I should start a thread about it but it's a bit like Goodebox.. only not as much and not as nice. I don't want another of these because it was $14.00 and I think the value is only probably around $4-5 dollars, tops. It, has only 2 usable body products,  and also has what I would call a sample of " medicine" in it.

I got 3 envelopes of tea from the rainforest that I won't touch since it's 101 degrees in the shade!! I consider tea packets to be virtually worthless fillers. 

A natural brownie which I did try. It was very good and fresh. From a company called " Dancing Deer"

. A 1.5 oz tube of Alba Botanica brand natural shaving cream in Mango Vanilla. I use my bath gel not a thick cream. May give this to someone else in the household.

One Aura Cacia brand  small " shower tablet" ( a small flat bath fizz tablet thing I think) in Reviving Peppermintt. All kind of OK but not great. Might use someday, might not.

Then there is  the unusual and possibly " iffy" product safety wise, a packet of what is called " Rescue Pastilles" from a company named Bach. Seems to be from Europe.The packet says " Trusted brand for over 70 years in 66 countries". Apparently not including the USA, not sure 

I don't recognize one thing on the active ingredients list... Don't see an expiration date on the pack either.. 

Oh, and there is a little card in the box that says "SAVE THIS TOKEN" ( all caps). In small letters, it says "Collect 12 of these tokens and we will donate an additional $5 to celebrate the anniversary". So, I'm wondering what donation. Top of card says "You ( sic) donation will provide feminine care products for a less fortunate woman- Thanks".

Does anyone else have any experience with " Good and Lovely" boxes? Mom thought it would be almost exactly like Goodebox, she says. It's not anywhere close. Goodebox is really sweet.
