My July ToGoSpa is here! This is one of my favorite subs, because I not only get restock for my eye gels (swoons), but I also receive some cool products in addition to that, called The Benefit. So far, I have enjoyed all of The Benefits I have received. This month might be a bit dicey, as the hint last month was that it was for your hair. 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
So, here we go! Hair products and all, will I be a happy or grumpy cat??
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 have 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
The “Benefit” Product
Two products from Balanced Guru! I love Balanced Guru ~ I was first introduced to them a couple of years ago thru Ipsy with their Balm Me Up product, which is a tangy, sweet cocoa body balm. I’ve been interested in some of their other products, but the shipping would get a bit too much ~ I would have to commit to at least $50.00. Now, I have TWO from them and one of the products in this month’s box is one that I’ve been dying to try!
Balanced Guru Scalp Detox (Organic Detoxifying Scalp Treatment) This is the product that I have been wanting to try for a very long time from Balanced Guru. Detox treatments are something I like to do once a week and perhaps more in the summer time, as I do have oily hair and scalp. I also use several styling products daily as well and a detox treatment will help reduce the oil in your scalp and clean up your hair around the roots. Our hair is “dead”, but our scalp is alive and we do not give enough attention to it, and over time, hair product buildup and dead skin cells will make your hair look greasy and dull, and it will slow down your hair growth. Shampooing cannot do a good deep cleanse, so doing a detox treatment for your scalp will unclog the pores, remove dead skin and product buildup.
This will help stimulate your hair growth as your hair follicles will be clean and unclogged. This product has an herbaceous minty scent to it ~ lots of herbs, rosemary, oregano and lavender. There is no mint in this product, but perhaps it is the lemongrass, combined with the other ingredients that makes it smell like mint. The astringent properties of oregano, tea tree oil and rosemary help detox and clarify your scalp. Algae, sea kelp and brahmi will rejuvenate and freshen your hair roots. You only need one eye dropper full, place it on the top of your scalp and then massage in. Do not rinse out. I am pretty excited to use this as in the summertime, my hair really feels weighed down, greasy, and ITCHY, due to the heat, mugginess and oil. Travel Size .5 oz Value $12.00
Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice*, Alcohol Denat*, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract*, Aqua (Water), Cymbopogan Flexuosus (Lemongrass) Oil*, Ascophyllum Nodosum (Kelp) Extract*, Spirulina Platensis (Spirulina) Extract*, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Oil*, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Oil*, Bacopa Monnieri (Brahmi) Powder*, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Oil*, Origanum Vulgare (Oregano) Oil* * Certified Organic Ingredients.
Balanced Guru StyleMe Hair Oil I wasn’t sure how I felt getting a hair oil, as I really love the one I use now, but the scent alone made me a convert! To me, this smells like an herbal mint limeaide! That might be due to Citrus Aurantium, which is a sour orange, but all I know is that this smells delightful 🙂 I know ~ there are no limes in this product, but that is what it smells like to me. This is a lightweight oil and I used this product this morning on the ends of my hair ~ I never use hair oils all over, only the ends. My hair feels nice and soft, not greasy or weighed down. This is enriched with argan, pumpkin, sesame and tamanu oils, along with so many other oils as well! Full Size 1 oz Value $18.99
Ingredients: Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil*, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil*, Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil*, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Oil*, Ethyl Palmate*, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Oil*, Mixed Tocopherols (Vitamin E), Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil*, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Oil*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Calophyllum Inophyllum (Tamanu) Nut Oil*, Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Seed Oil*, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract*, Citrus Sinensis (Sweet Orange) Fruit Peel Oil*, Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Extract*, Lecithin*, Citrus Aurantium (Petitgrain) Oil*, Euterpe Oleracea (Acai) Fruit Extract*, Lycium Barbarium (Goji) Fruit Extract*, Mentha Spicata (Spearmint) Oil*. * Certified Organic Ingredients.
Happy or Grumpy Cat?
Happy Cat!! I wasn’t in the market for a different hair oil, as I love my Ojon Rejuvenating Therapy Hair Oil, but the scent of the Balanced Guru Hair Oil really makes me happy and it performs well. I love mint scents and I might have to switch my hair oils. I also LOVED the detox treatment as well ~ this is perfect for me, as I have oily hair and scalp and I do use a lot of products on my hair. Great JOB!! Not to mention the eye gels, which I use all the time now and they are so cool and refreshing. I paid $40.00, which included shipping and received a value of $93.49 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 you will be “Lei’d”, which tells me it is something to do with Hawaii or tropical.
