Green Grab Bag Review

When I first opened this box containing my Green Grab Bag from White Apricot, I was impressed by how cute the packaging was. These bags would be something I would be proud to gift to a loved one.  I quickly removed it from the box and started pulling things out.

My favorite product is the Selma Valentine Whipped Body Butter. I received the “Sweet Sensations” scent. It has a strong scent, but isn't overpowering and quickly dies down, leaving a gentle scent. The 8 oz jar is available on their website for $15. I received a 1 oz sample. This is something I will definitely be ordering, especially after finding a coupon code for 15% off! They also offer soy candles. I'm debating on whether to try the Litsea & Basil or Citrus & Teakwood.

I will also be buying more Raw Goat's Milk Soap from Tierra Mia.  This was my first introduction to goat's milk soap and I have to say I could definitely feel the difference between it and the store-bought body soap I was using. Mine was “Clove Black Pepper” and I'm glad I didn't notice the name until after I used it.  I'm ashamed to admit, I might have handed it off to my mom to try out and would have missed out! Each bar is only $7, so I plan on grabbing a few of the different scents like “Almond Coffee”, “Lavender Vanilla”, and “Spearmint Sage”. Tierra Mia also provided a 15% off code for Green Grab Bag subscribers.

The Moody Sisters eye cream looked like it had gone bad.  I was having a bad nose day, so I can't tell you if it smelled nasty or not.  Other reviewers have complained theirs looked curdled, but I didn't have that issue.  I did throw mine out and think they must have either had a bad batch or it was past its use by date.

After using it a few times, I'm really liking the Lipz from Scrubz Natural Skin Care. It is a shea butter lip balm. I've never used anything so thick before, but after being sick & dehydrated, I really needed to soften my lips up. I used it a couple times a day and before bed for about 4 days.  I don't think my lips have ever been so soft and smooth before. And if I needed any extra incentive to order, they had a coupon code for 25% off and a FREE gift. I also received 2 sample packets of anti-aging cream from Green Tea Skin and a rejuvenating serum from Emtage Hair that I gave away.

Green Grab Bag Unpacked

When first glancing at the packaging included, I didn't feel it was very green. I headed to their website to see if anything was stated and was happy to see that all of their material is eco-friendly, including the cute bag & bow that impressed me when I first opened my box.

  1. Very cool! I’m actually really interested in the bag. Thats unfortunate about the eye cream though. 

  2. Kristi Blackstone says:

    Great review, awesome products in this!

  3. Great review! The soap sounds wonderful!!!

  4. The lip gloss was one of the best I’ve tried. It doesn’t feel waxy, but it doesn’t melt easily, either I didn’t try the eye cream yet, but I’ll have to look at it carefully before I do. Thanks for the heads up about the possible problem. I hadn’t read about that elsewhere. 

  5. This would be a gift I’d love my family to get me monthly.

  8. I’d really love to try this, it’s a great way to experience new products and of course be more environment friendly.

  9. Ooh!  You had me at “Organic” and “Natural”. I hate to put artificial stuff on my skin. 😀

  12. What a great idea! I never want to buy full-price new stuff when ya don’t know!

  13. I really liked that Green Grab Bag supported an etsy shop in this particular bag! Thought that was way cool!

  14. Eloquence says:
