Love Goodly is a beauty box that focuses on curating vegan, organic, cruelty-free, non-toxic beauty products. Primarily targeted at women, customers purchase subscriptions to a bi-monthly box, and will receive at least 4 full-size health or beauty products in their box. The service is particularly targeted at women who care about animals and the environment, and also donates its earnings from one month, and a portion of each individual sale, to charities working in these fields, which also gains traction among their consumer demographic.
Customers can opt for Love Goodly’s regular bi-monthly box, which is priced at $34.95, or the VIP box, priced at $48.95, which includes one additional luxury item in addition to those in the regular box, or even opt for a variety of VIP or regular gift boxes for friends and family.
Love Goodly curates the selection carefully, and items sent to customers include lip balms, moisturizers, facial soaps, lipsticks, eye creams, sprays, mascaras, makeup brushes, healthy snacks, oils, and more. The company introduces customers to new cruelty-free and vegan products they may not know of, and also helps customers build a brand new beauty routine in time. Customers can also buy individual featured products from past boxes on their website.
