I always look with joy at my monthly ToGoSpa Society box because I know that not only will I restock my stash of their amazing eye gels, but their Benefit item has always been fantastic and really cool! I haven’t found a Benefit that I didn’t enjoy thoroughly and I have even made purchases of those benefits. Every month, ToGoSpa gives you a “hint” on what next month’s The Benefit theme will be ~ it was “drip, drip, drop” and the only thing I could think of was something to fix my leaky sink. Well, I wasn’t TOO far off. It does involve water and it does involve plumbing, but your own personal plumbing in your body and how to keep it healthy! 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
ToGoSpa Box Revealed!
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 , 2 packs, 6 treatments of Green Tea Rejuvenating EYES and 1 packs, 3 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 will say with flu and cold season coming up and I also get allergies in the winter, these eye gels will be more beloved. They really help with undereye puffiness and brighten the area, as well as being so cool and refreshing. Total packs = 5. Total treatments = 15. Value $62.50
The “Benefit” Product
Pure Inventions Raspberry Green Tea Antioxidant Extract See! Something to keep your insides healthy :D I am very familiar with antioxidants in skincare as I am sure my readers are as well. But it is also important to keep your insides healthy too, with antioxidants which will help your immune system. I received Raspberry flavor ~ Pure Inventions also sells flavors like peach, tropical, original and others. Why green tea? What is so great about that? I actually do take green tea supplements in capsule form and they are pretty big horse pills, but the benefits of green tea supplements are amazing. I’ve written about it before in my blog, so if this does sound familiar, it is because I have written about the benefits of green tea before🙂
Green tea is one of the healthiest supplements in the world. It has been used for centuries. It is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on the body. This includes improved brain function, fat loss, and may lower the risk of illness and diseases. I have IBS, so I take it to help with my stomach disorder and the other side effects of IBS as it does help keep it under control. Another reason why I will take Green Tea Supplements is for help with preventing osteoporsis and cancer, as both of those diseases run in my family. Green Tea is also helpful with those who have Crohn’s disease, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome, cavities (teeth), kidney stones and skin damage. From WebMD
One of the immediate side effects is that I am more alert, due to the caffeine, but without any jitters or nervousness. Green Tea keeps me alert mentally as well. Why does Green Tea have so many wonderful properties? It is because of the polyphenols and catechins ~ most notably the catechin epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) which green tea contains 7380 mg per 100 g rams~ which are very potent antioxidants that will combat free radicals and reverse the damage. They may help prevent inflammation, build cartilage ~ important for preventing bone loss ~ and help reduce joint degeneration. The antioxidants in Green Tea give protection to the heart and blood vessels, which is important for not getting heart disease. Green Tea also helps lower your cholesterol overall and boosts your good cholesterol levels (HDL).
Green Tea can also help burn fat and lose weight as well, although I haven’t personally seen that side benefit!! If you are interested in knowing more about green tea and its benefits, I have included two links here that I find very helpful and interesting
Green tea’s health benefits has been around for centuries and is not some new fad!
So, back to the Benefit product! This is a green tea extract that contains 100 mg of green tea per serving, which is the same as drinking 10 cups of green tea! This supplement contains all of the benefits listed above, an antioxidant, combats free radicals, helps promote skin cell rejuvenation, boosts your metabolism while supporting your immune system. This does contain stevia and Lo Han (Siraitia grosvenorii) extract, for a bit of natural sweetness, as well as ural licorice, for additional antioxidant benefits. I also like this product because I add the drops to water ~ I have to increase my daily water intake (everyone should!). Drinking more water helps flush out toxins, keeps your insides lubed and healthy, hydrates your skin from inside out, as well as filling you up, therefore helping you lose weight. I dislike plain water and sparkling water is not really good on a daily basis. I usually add some lemon or lime into my water, which helps.
Now, I can add a dropper full of this product, along with my lemon or lime, and I have a refreshing, slightly sweet (but not overly sweet) raspberry flavored water! It is really yummy and since I do not like really sweet drinks, I add a full dropper to my 16 oz water bottle ~ the instructions states 8 to 12 oz, but I don’t like sweet stuff too much. This gives me a light flavor that is refreshing and I don’t mind drinking my water that much anymore! You do need to shake the bottle well to mix the contents up before using, and you can also try this in hot or sparkling water for a bit of a change!! All natural, zero calories, no sugar, no artificial sweeteners, no artificial ingredients, no caffeine, no gluten and no sodium. Each bottle contains 60 servings. Full Size 2 oz Value $29.95
Pure Inventions has a coupon code that is good for 25% off any purchase at their website: use PURETOGO They also have a 30% off promo code and free shipping, if you purchase $85.00 or more: SAVE30 I am really interested in trying some of the other flavors too as well as their other products. What a cool website!!
I feel like a broken record, but…. another fine month with ToGoSpa Society! I can’t help it, this subscription is fantastic! Sometimes, less is more and I look forward to not only my eye gels, but what the Benefit will be this month. This month’s Benefit really is up my alley as I have been taking more supplements due to some health issues and I do need to up my water intake quite a bit, so this was great timing. I paid $40.00, which included shipping and received a value of $92.45 If you order before the 15th, you can still get this month’s box. So, next month, ToGoSpa hinted that it will be “Just Breath” and that we need this. Could it be something for our sinuses? Something relaxing, like a Zen-ful scent? I cannot wait to find out!
