As back to school is in full event, I find my me time very limited. Between my job as a travel reporter and the kids shopping and registration prep, I tend to find myself left out of the mix. So while on the hunt for the ways to earn back my self-care time, I stumbled upon Love Goodly, a vegan beauty subscription box for the green conscious group. Adding in the PETA approval, Love Goodly is #1 on our Best Subscription Boxes For Busy Vegan Moms list.
With a mix of beauty, wellness and lifestyle items, Love Goodly supports a cruelty free and toxin free lifestyle. The box is a bi-monthly subscription and costs $29.95. This includes 4-5 full size products delivered every other month with a box value of $80+. Even better, our readers can save $8 off their first box using code, “MOTHERHOOD” at checkout.
I know I am a tad behind but I wanted to share the goodies from June – July Love Goodly Subscription Box. This box contained products from Kat Von D, New Chapter, FABY, Fred + Far, GEMtye. June – July box value $87! I found some hit and misses in this bi-month box. However, the lipstick and pin were true winners in my box making the $29.95 price tag well worth it. The rest were just bonuses to make it a even bigger deal.
Love Goodly June – July Wins
Fred + Far Pin – Value $12
The Fred + Far Pin is a diamond shaped enamel pin, designed to promote self-love which has been a huge campaign this summer many brands jumped on board with. In fact, with the shares in national magazine this good for you project has gone viral and we at MDefined are loving every minute of it.
As a mom with four daughters, I understand the importance of encouraging a healthy fondness for oneself. While it was once looked upon as vanity, self-love in itself is a great thing that installs good feelings and promotes ones ability to look at themselves with a positive outlook. As we all know, when we feel good about our-self life seems easier to handle and dreams become reality.
Now the pin itself is adorable with gold accents and white base. This will be great on a scarf this winter or as an additional accessory on even a basic purse or bookbag. This was a keeper in my box and is now at home in my jewelry box.
New Chapter Perfect Hair Skin & Nails – Value $15
Until this last year, I had never hear of oral boosters / vitamins for healthier hair, skin and nails. Considering breakage in my hair and nails is a huge concern, I don’t know what took me so long to jump on the train. Now that I have, this daily supplement has become a routine.
Typically, New Chapter Perfect Hair Skin & Nails Formula is sold in 30 and 60 count bottles. For this box, I received a 15 count trail pack. No matter which count you buy, the pills average at $1 each.
New Chapter Perfect Hair Skin & Nails Formula builds healthy hair and strong nails with fermented Biotin and delivers Astaxanthin, a rare whole-food plant-nutrient clinically proven to maintain your youthful appearance. Who wouldn’t be interested in that?
Kat Von D Beauty – Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lovecraft – Value $20
Our final win and by far the most impressive was Kat Von D Beauty’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lovecraft. This color and formula combination is just perfection.
Everlasting Liquid Lipstick is a life-proof lipstick that will not wear off! Yes, you can eat, drink, make up, break up and mouth-off knowing your lips are gonna stay flawless through it all! Said with truth. In fact, I am a vapor and this is one of the longest lasting brands I have tried. No more wipeoffs for me, nope not at all.
Available in 43 to-die-for shades, this creamy formula glides over lips like a gloss and sets to a true matte finish. Along with 24-hour wear and high-pigment color, the next-generation formula is packed with natural moisturizers, including Vitamin E and Sunflower Seed Wax.
Lovecraft is a fantastically neutral color that was right up my alley. I almost always buy nudes and brown/pink mixes for everyday wear. This fit right in with my favorites and maybe the only one still in my handbag. Shush… don’t tell.

*cuz after all nothing can be perfect*
FABY Nail Lacquer in First Lights of Dawn – Value $12
Upon first glance, this was a stunning color. My teenage was so stoked for mom to give her a manicure with this bright color for summer. Well….. grrr.
The formula is too thin for my liking, nearing water texture. The color however holds true and with a double coat, you get exactly what you expect. However with the thin coat, I had more mistakes to clean-up in the side nail areas. In the future, I would use a peel-off around the nail before applying.
GEMtye – Value $28
Dear GEMtye, how I wanted to love thee.
GENtye is a dual-purpose hairband and bracelet which sounds like something I need so much in my life. Long hair and hot days make this a stylish option that can go from wrist to hair as needed. In fact, this design was made custom exclusively for the box. Beautiful too!
I would love to try GEMtye again in the future. Perhaps, I only ended up with the bad seed. The thought process of a great product is there though.
Final thoughts: Just do it. Take the plunge, even if for just one box. Grab the discount below and fall in love with at least one or two items if not all in the box. With our busy lives, having a bi-monthly vegan beauty box delivered to my door is like the treat I need and deserve just at the right time.
