MyChelle Fruit Enzyme Scrub
Retail value: $18
MyChelle’s Fruit Enzyme Scrub exfoliates, brightens, and evens skin texture in multiple ways: jojoba beads gentle buff the skin while fruit enzymes and AHA’s work to slough off dead skin cells. This milky cream is meant to be spread evenly in a thin layer and left on the skin for a few minutes to work its magic. I’ve been using this in the shower and it’s been great to boost my night time exfoliation. It does tingle (as noted by MyChelle) and it also leaves a warming sensation on my skin, which I’m not sure is normal, but is gone and left with no redness after rinsing.

Source Vital Jasmine Eye Balm
Retail value: $28.95
Source Vital’s jasmine eye balm is an ultra-rich treatment formulated to tackle signs of aging, fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet. This eye balm delivers a rich dose of emollients (shea butter, coconut/glycerin triglycerides, rosehip oil, abysssinian oil, jojoba oil) and hydration (humectants include aloe, glycerin, cucumber, xylitol) with jasmine to boot for aromatherapy benefits.
I’m obsessed with the thick, smooth, creamy texture of this eye balm! It’s fairly rich and leaves my eyes looking supple and actually de-puffed. You really get the best of both worlds with this cream-balm: you get both moisturizing and hydration benefits. A lot of eye treatments lean one way or the other, but this one is well rounded in its formula. I would even go as far to say this is one of the better eye treatments I’ve ever tried. Can’t recommend it enough!
purifed water, butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), capric/caprylic triglycerides (coconut/glycerin), cetearyl alcohol, polysorbate 60, aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice, glycerin (vegetal), laminaria digitata extract, cucumis sativas (cucumber) fruit extract, hydroxyethylcellulose, benzyl alcohol (naturally derived), potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, rosa mosqueta (rosehip) seed oil, crambe abyssinica (abyssinian) seed oil, xylitylglucoside, anhydroxylitol, xylitol, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba gold) seed oil, jasminum officinalis sambac (jasmine) flower oil, citrus aurantium (neroli) flower oil, inula graveolens oil, and daucus carota (carrot) oil
[Note: I was initially sent Source Vital’s Cucumber Eye Cream in my press kit, which is why it appears in my original box photo. It is being replaced by their Jasmine Eye Balm which is fully vegan, unlike the cucumber eye cream. Please note you will be receving the Jasmine Eye Balm instead!]
Cypress Skincare Lash Love
Retail value: $29
Cypress Skincare’s Lash Love is an oil-serum that includes organic castor oil and hemp seed oil to nourish and strengthen brows, lashes, and even your lips!
Castor oil is known for hair thickening and strengthening benefits and is included in most brow and lash growth serums. I haven’t had this serum long enough to purport any results, but I’m excited to see my progress especially considering I wasn’t using any growth/strengthening serums before this one. I do think a spoolie might have been more optimal for brushing the serum through brows and lashes, but I don’t mind the doe foot applicator.
Derma E Overnight Peel
Retail value: $2.95 (deluxe travel size)
Derma E’s overnight peel is a 5% AHA exfoliating solution that utilizes glycolic cane sugar and fruit acids to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. Exfoliating acids like AHA’s loosen the bonds that keep dead skin cells attached to reveal an evenly smooth complexion, all while being gentle on the skin. Unfortunately because of my own sensitivities to AHA’s I wasn’t able to use this sample, but I do believe 5% AHA formulas are most optimal to avoid over exfoliation. I know that Derma E is a beloved brand and I’m sure the overnight peel is no exception!
Hurraw! Lip Balm
Retail value: $3.79
One of the best lip balms out there! Love Goodly kindly gifted me the Vanilla Chai flavor which is reminiscient of pumpkin spice, but more heavy on the vanilla. Hurraw’s lip balms are high quality and made with only the best ingredients: raw, organic, and fair-trade! I’m certainly not unfamiliar with Hurraw’s balms (I’ve tried so many flavors) and have found them to be exceptional among the mass market of lip balms, leaving my lips chap-free, moisturized, and pillow soft. You just can’t go wrong with these!
LesserEvil Buddha Bowl Popcorn – Himalayan Gold
Retail value: $2
Popcorn is not a snack that I eat often, but this kind from Buddha Bowl left me wanting more. LesserEvil’s Buddha Bowl popcorn is made from non-gmo, organic, gluten-free corn with oils of coconut, avocado, or ghee. Love Goodly sent me Himalayan Gold which is made with coconut oil and a blend organic extracts that mimic a butter flavor, making this popcorn dairy-free. I ate this popcorn in a quick second and I definitely want to purchase more. Yum!
