Green Grab Bag Review August 2013!!

I have another box review for you guys today, and this one is probably my favorite eco friendly sub: Green Grab Bag by White Apricot. 

It seems like not too many people sign up for this sub, but they seem to get better every month. They are only $15 a month and they really seem to put a ton of stuff in their boxes. The best part is it's all natural/eco friendly products!

This is what the outside of the boxes look like.

This is the info card. It is definatly one of the better information cards that I've received in a box.

The first two items are sunscreen samples from Sunology. They are valued at about $1.50 for both. These have SPF ratings of 50!  One is packed in a "face" card and the other is in a "body" card, but they look the same to me so they are probably usable for either. I wear sunscreen everyday, so these will totally get used!

The next item is one of my most favorite items in the whole box! It is a tinted lip balm by Cosmetics Without Synthetics. They have a sample for sale on their website for $.50, so I'm saying that what this is worth. It is in the shade Raspberry, which is a really pretty red wine color that is great for fall! I love this, and I think the sample is so cute. Plus this isn't too tinted which is good because I'm not a huge fan of vampy shades, but it is moisturizing!

The next item is a Be Natural Organics Hyaluronic Serum and a coupon code for 20% off my order. This goes for $3.  This keeps skin clear, moisturized, and younger looking. I'm actually going to be giving the serum to my mom, since the only thing I need out of those three is moisture, so I'm betting that she will get much better usage out of it. However I will totally be using the coupon code!

The next item is a Virga Botanicals Nourish Organic Body Lotion. This goes for $1.24 (or about since I'm assuming this is about 1 ounce.) This has a nice fresh smell to it, that smells sorta fruity. It's almost a bit hard to really tell what it smells like, but it is a nice smell. Plus the lotion is nice and creamy and isn't too heavy or too liquidy. Since it isn't totally expensive I will totally be buying a bottle!

Then I got an EVOLVh UltraShine Moisture Conditioner. This goes for $2.94 This also has a nice light fresh scent, that I find totally pleasant. What's cool about it, is that it doesn't smell like a normal hair product. I know a lot of people don't like getting just a conditioner, but I'm totally fine with that, since I'll just use it with my normal shampoo and see how it works that way. Plus this is a great sized conditioner sample at 2 ounces!

I saved the best for last! The last item is a LVX Nail Polish in Viridian. This is a full size and it goes for $16. This is a beautiful teal color, that is a bit more green in person then in the picture. I love it and I don't have any other polishes like it! Plus I've tried LVX before and I know it is a good brand. This was such a great product to get!

All totalled my box has a value of $25.18. While that isn't like a super valuable box, I think sometimes the value doesn't really matter, especially to a box like this. Plus since I did only pay $15 for the box, I did get a deal. I've never heard of any of these brands besides LVX and I already found a couple new products that I fell in love with. I really love Green Grab Bag and I would totally recommend them if you are looking for some new eco friendly products/brands!
