Without warning or even a notice that it shipped out, I received my ToGoSpa Society box for June this weekend. Before I head into the unboxing, I want to briefly tell you what ToGoSpa Society is, if you don’t know. If you do know, you can skip down a bit to my unboxing 🙂 I subscribe to ToGoSpa Society just to get their amazing eye gels monthly and they also add in a “benefit” product(s) that varies monthly. The benefit product can be something from their own line or another vendor. A bit more on ToGoSpa Society
A monthly membership that gets you EYES by ToGoSpa each month because we think you should use them ANYTIME if you want to – AND The Benefit,- a gift selected by us – just for you!
What is The Benefit? It’s a special gift from us to you! On our never ending quest to discover the best of the best in “on the go” spa products, we find some extraordinary things! We want to share some of this booty with you, and The Benefit allows us do just that! Each month, along with your EYES, you’ll receive a unique and special gift of one of our favorite products. It could be a gift of our own ToGoSpa brand products, or another brand that we covet. The Benefit will be a full size, spa quality, awesome gift valued from $20 – $50. We won’t tell you what it is, but we know you’re going to LOVE it!
Which flavor of EYES will I receive? Your call. You’ll get to choose between Refreshing Ice Water, Rejuvenating Green Tea and Replenishing Coconut, or a combo of ALL 3.
How does my participation work? Each month you’ll receive you 15 pair of EYES or 30 pair of Eyes and The Benefit. Then we’ll send you a brief questionnaire and ask a few basic things about your experience, and if it’s something you think is worthy of ending up in the ToGoSpa store. Basically, you’re going to be the “deciders” of any ToGoSpa products going forward.
The plans are variable and you decide what you want in your box. It does start off at $40.00, which may be pricey for some, but for me, these eye gels are so worth it. You can choose what type of gels you want, or have a variety pack, add on face masks and the plan rates can go up as high as $114.00 a month.
I chose the $40.00 variety plan, for which every month, I will receive 5 packs of eye gels in Ice Water, Coconut and Green Tea, with each pack containing 3 pairs of gels (15 treatments total) plus a “benefit” product, which could be one of their products or a product that they really like ~ valued at $20.00 to $50.00
I know from last month that our benefit this month might have something to do with teeth, and after my foot care fetish, I do have a teeth care obsession!
Since each month, I will receive 5 packs of their EYES, I won’t review them in-depth like I did in the original March post, unless they come out with a new version of them. I will state what I received and if you are interested about the full information on the EYES, please read my March blog post on this box. All of the EYES products have these benefits
Activated by the body’s temperature, the nutrients stored in each flexible EYES by ToGoSpa® gel pads work together to aide stressed, tired and aging eyes and skin
- Relaxes, calms, and pumps up hydration levels to new heights.
- De-puffs and reduces the appearance of dark circles.
- Reduces irritation and redness.
- Minimizes pores with clarifying, cleansing oils.
- Hydrates crepe-like skin and fine lines.
This month, I received 2 pack, 6 treatments of Ice Water Refreshing EYES , 1 packs, 3 treatments of Green Tea Rejuvenating EYES and 2 packs, 6 treatments of Coconut Replenishing EYES . So, far, they “mix” up each month, so the 5 packs will rotate, so that I will 2 masks one month, and then 1 next month of the “flavor”. I do like that they mix it up, so that I can really try out the eye masks. Total packs = 5. Total treatments = 15. Value $62.50

Coconut Oils from Skinny & Co! About Skinny & Co Coconut Oils
Our patent-pending Nutralock System™ crafts the ONLY raw & alkaline coconut oil on the market today! This internationally exclusive extraction uses no heat to extract, rather cooling the coconut to release the oil (yes that’s right ZERO heat!). Skinny is the closest you can get to a raw coconut. Just open the jar, and find out why so many people are making Skinny their coconut oil! Our coconuts are WILD HARVESTED from the jungles of Vietnam. The coconuts are hand-picked and transported directly to our plant; a controlled environment ensuring quality. Once cracked open, the coconut meat is put into the closed-loop, dehumidifying Nutralock System™. This extracts the moisture without heat, leaving all of the raw nutrients of the coconut intact. source
Skinny & Co Oil Pulling Coconut Oil with Refreshing Peppermint My cousin several years ago, introduced me to oil pulling and she swore by it. I do have issues with my gums and teeth ~ in the last decade, I have had 6 crowns plus a dental implant and two root canals done. I blame it on my lack of flossing. Lousy flosser here… The problem (or blessing, depending on your point of view ~ my dentist and I are on first name basis 😉 ) with my teeth is that they will rot inside of my mouth and not fall out, as I inherited my mother’s extra long root system. That said, I did try it and the taste of oil was just too much for me. I did feel that it cleaned my teeth nicely, but I couldn’t handle the taste of pure oil in my mouth for 5 to 20 minutes ~ and I tried a lot of different oils too. This oil is specifically made for Oil Pulling and does taste like wonderful, refreshing mint. I am really going to start up again and see if this helps with my gums and teeth ~ plus it will freshen my breath too! This product is just made with 3 ingredients: Skinny & Co’s Coconut Oil, Blue Peppermint Leaf Extract and a proprietary blend of essential oils. I am pretty happy that I got this and that finally someone decided to freshen up oils for oil pulling! Travel Size 4.1 oz Value $11.50
Instructions for Oil Pulling are simple and effective. First thing in the morning, simply place one tablespoon of Skinny&Co. Coconut Oil in your mouth. Naturally, the oil will liquefy. Begin to swish the oil around for five to twenty minutes (we recommend that you start with five and increase time gradually). Move the oil around your mouth, teeth and gums as if it were mouthwash, yet without gargling or swallowing it. You may begin to notice that the oil mixture will thicken the longer that you “pull”. Once finished, dispose of the oil in the trash. As a final step, rinse out your mouth with warm water and brush your teeth as normal. For best results, oil pull at least twice per week.
Skinny & Co Coconut Oil Dietary Supplement I do use coconut oil for my DIY projects and am currently incorporating into my diet as well. I like how this is 100% raw, virgin coconut oil, with no fillers. Skinny & Co’s oil is made from fresh, wild harvested coconuts from Vietnam and is a high alkaline oil ~ 7.3-7.8 pH. This this is gluten free, vegan and pesticide free. I read that it is good in coffee and tea and I am going to have to try that out! Lauric acid and linoleic acid are two important components in this oil ~ Lauric acid, which makes up 50% of Skinny & Co’s coconut oil, helps increase the good cholesterol (HDL). Linoleic acid has been shown to be a fat burner and helps increase muscles and endurance. There was a study done that shown when women consumed two tablespoons of coconut oil each day, for 3 months, they did not gain weight but lowered their abdominal fat! I am going to have to try this out 🙂 Travel Size 4.1 oz Value $10.00
I am really happy with my box from ToGoSpa (again!) I really am so happy that I have a flavored oil for pulling and I really want to try using coconut oil more in my diet ~ let’s see if I can get rid of some belly fat! The lip balm is really nice and will go into my ever growing collection of lip balms. I also love my eye gels ~ I use them all the time now and I think this is a great deal. I paid $40.00, which included shipping and received a value of $92.00 If you order before the 15th, you can still get this month’s box. So, next month, ToGoSpa states that they will have a Benefit that will be something for hair. Hmmm. That can get dicey with me as I have oily, straight, fine hair and most organic hair products are oils and heavy products to tame frizzies and coarse hair… Hopefully, they will pick products that will can be used for all hair types, like a nice sulfate free shampoo & conditioner.
