Love Goodly VIP Box April/May 2020 Review
Each Love Goodly box comes with an info card detailing the items included. Since I'm a VIP Subscriber, there's an additional card featuring my VIP-exclusive item.
True Moringa Lip Whip in Truth (Pink Yarrow Cocoa) – Retail Value $16.00
True Moringa holds a special place in my heart because it's one of the first skincare brands I discovered through subscription boxes. In addition to skincare, they also make tinted "lip whip" which is the perfect name for this product. I received the Pink Yarrow Cocoa color which looks like a deep sparkly fuchsia. On my lips, it's surprisingly sheer which I have to admit, I prefer.
It's softer than your average balm and a little goes a long way. I'm pleased to report how light it feels as well as moisturizing. The hint of pink just amplifies my natural pout and the sparkles are so subtle they only read as slight shine. As a bonus, True Moringa sustainably harvests ingredients using Moringa trees in Ghana while supporting the livelihood and nutrition programs for their farmers.

Tea Drops in Citrus Ginger and Matcha Green Tea, 2 ct – Total Retail Value $2.04 ($1.02 each)
I've always thought of myself more as a coffee person than a tea person but I am loving the idea of these Tea Drops. Individually packaged, each drop contains true loose leaf tea (finely ground) pressed with sugar and extracts that all dissolve in hot water. I decided to try the Citrus Ginger flavor since I love both of those things (especially in tea). I was blown away with wonderful flavors and the ginger really had a spicy zing to it. I don't normally sweeten my tea either and was worried that the pre-sweetened drop could be too much but it was perfect. I will definitely be wanting to try more of these. The only downside to these drops is all the packaging but it looks like I can order a recycled cardboard cylinder of 10 with no wrapping (although the cylinder is more expensive per drop).
La Bloom Lash and Brow Serum – Retail Value $25.00
Ah yes, La Bloom! I've received this at least once before in a subscription box and I've always enjoyed it. I really love that this serum is used for both lashes + brows, and that I only need to use it "sparingly," as directed. The mascara-like wand makes this incredibly simple to use and I like it a lot more than serums that come with a thin brush. One dip into the tube will take care of both brows which I apply at night. No-fuss, no muss. I do, however, need to use this consistently over a longer period of time to determine results. The ingredients are all simple organic oils, so it makes it an easy win!
Baiser Beauty Formula No. 9 Moonstone Perfume, 10 ml – Retail Value $65.00
Since the sticker on my bottle says "handmade for Love Goodly," but is sold on their site, I'm assuming they made a special batch or used a different bottle to keep the cost affordable. At any rate, we're getting the same product that has a pretty sizeable retail value. The other thing is that the fragrance is wonderful! Oh my- the description says:
"Designed especially for women, this aphrodisiac formula increases sensuality, repels bad energy, acts as an antidepressant and elevates the low frequencies in your body, leading to a state of total plenitude and inner peace."
The jasmine in this blend really comes through but also has rose, neroli, coriander, and bergamot to make this scent that also cleanses and aligns the crown chakra. I think this is a light floral summertime scent that truly lifts my mood. It also comes with a small piece of rose quartz in the bottle that "helps you get to know your true self and to love that true self in all its beauty." I'm in.

Baiser Beauty Formula No. 11 Hair Growing Oil Blend, 0.5 oz. – Retail Value $35.00
I am all about trying to grow in my hair since mine is baby fine, but this product really put me off. It's VERY sticky and feels like the consistency of honey and oil together. This is not something I can put in my hair, style, and look presentable. It's definitely for nights-in only, before bed, since it really saturates my hair with a sticky oil. What the website warns (but the label does not) is to put a towel down on your pillow since it can make a mess. It certainly did. Sigh. The upside is that this has a fantastic lavender scent, and has super oils like castor and avocado. Sadly, the messiness is just not worth it for me to try over a longer period of time.
