I have been a member of Goodie Box for three months (March, April, May). So far I have found them to be the best subscription box service in both New Zealand and Australia.
Originally I had planned on posting my reviews in the correct order as any normal person would, but instead I have decided to go against common sense and write up my first review on the box in which I have just received.
Firstly let me say that May's box was in fact the worst box that I have received so far. Although I do like the box, March and April's boxes were so much better.
The Theme this month was "The Essentials".
In all honesty I was slightly disappointed when I first open up May's box. Although every product was full size it just didn't seem all to exciting. Once I looked at all the products again and read their description I came to realize that I would use every product, there were two products included that I had really wanted to try for a long time and one product that really would change my life.
All received products and product descriptions below:

I was very happy to receive the raw cacao mask from Cosmetic Kitchen and the So Susan Flutter mascara as I have been wanting to try out these products for a while now. I have tried the mascara and I did not like it at all. It does not do anything for my lashes and I find it smudges really bad.
I actually really love the lip gloss it applies beautiful and is lovely and pigmented. The colour suits me nicely and I am pleasantly surprised by this product.
I am somebody that cannot apply mascara neatly even if my life depended on it. This cheap and odd looking little device is brilliant. No more do I have mascara all over the top of my eye lips - it is awesome! I never knew something so simple would become a staple, must have item for me. It's cool as it is basically a reusable eye shadow shield.
The shampoo is cool, although it would have been nice if they included a conditioner. As for the cleansing bar it has a very fresh, clean smell which I kinda like. I find it really lovely on my dry sensitive skin and am always looking for products that don't aggravate my skin so this was a cool product to receive as it is not something that I would have bought on my own accord.
I may do single reviews on each of these products in the future.
