Beauty Bag Review

subscription box review

Everything that came in my Glow Up Beautiful Whole Foods Beauty Bag.


So what is all this stuff? 

The bag insert. This lists each of the items that comes in our bag.

Our bag for this year is a cool blue batik fabric. These are a really nice size and are great for travel.


The first item in my bag is this shampoo and conditioner duo from Acure. This is the Juice Cleanse Supergreens & Adaptogen Conditioner. I’ve never really heard of putting adaptogens into body products but I’ll give this a shot.


Next in my bag is the Andalou Naturals Miniature Plant Based Retinol Alternative with Bakuchiol. This brand is one that I would call a “mature” or “spa” line. Not necessarily formulated for me but I’ll give it a whirl.


Then in my bag is the Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant. I remember really liking this last year when I received it in my Whole Foods Beauty Bag

Very nourishing and cute little bottle!


An item that I am very excited to try out is this Cocokind Resurfacing Sleep Mask. I love sleep mask and this one sounds pretty promising as far as I’m concerned!


Something that I wasn’t so excited to receive is the Shea Moisture Head to Toe Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. This is one of those products that the line between too much and too little is very thin. I’ll pass this one to a friend.


Both bags from Whole Foods had a Mad Hippie Deluxe Sample in them. This bag included the Mad Hippie Vitamin C Serum. I’m excited to try this out because I do like this line of skincare products.


Then in my bag is the Weleda Sheer Hydration Daily Cream. I love super thick moisturizers and this appears to be one of them. Can’t wait to try this out!


Another item that I am really excited to have received in my box is from the Seaweed Bath Co. This Detox Repairing Hair Mask is a great size and will be great for about two uses in my hair. I love hair masks, have I said that lately?


There were two sheet masks in my bag for this year. The first is this Cotton Cupra Whole Foods Soothing Avocado Mask. Eh, kinda over sheet masks.


The second mask in my bag is from Yes To. This is their Yes to Avocado Hydrating Cream Mask. I’m a bit more excited about this mask because it is not a sheet – it’s a cream and I find those to be much more effective than cotton sheet or even cellulose masks.


In addition to the bag Queen Alaffia also included their Everyday Coconut Lip Balm. This was in both bags for this year and … I believe last year (and possibly more) as well.


Next up is this Apple Cider Vinegar Scalp Serum from RenPure. This is an interesting product and if there’s one thing I can say about myself it’s that I love to try some weird a** products. This does not smell of Apple Cider Vinegar either, it’s scented with something and smells quite nice.


Next up in my bag is the Pacifica Sea Foam Complete Face Wash. This was in both bags for the year. I’m not a huge fan of Pacifica products but I will give this a try.


Another item that I am very excited to try out is from evanhealy (there was a different evanhealy stick included in the New Beauty Essentials bag as well). This is the Rose Vetiver Harmonizing Balm. I really don’t know how harmonizing skin works but I LOVE rose and I LOVE vetiver and this smells like fresh, woodsy magic. Will def be using this!


Second to last in my bag is the Alba Botanica Acne Dote Pimple Patches. I like Alba products but these are not a product I will use so I will be passing these on to my thirteen year old.


The final item in my bag for this year is the Juice Beauty Blemish Control Cleanser. This seems like it wouldn’t be formulated for me so I’m going to pass this on.


So in summary

Presentation: Everything was packaged well and arrived to me in perfect condition

Quality: I really love the quality of the products that they include in this bag – everything is clean and all natural!

Curation: This assortment is really nice. Not sure which I bag I like more for this year but it’s still nice.




Whole Foods Beauty Bag $20

Fun Bag

This bag is great! I wait for these bags all year and I was not disappointed with the assortments that I received in either bag for the $20 spend!
