ToGoSpa Society Box features their amazing eye gels, which currently are Green Tea, Ice Replenishing Eyes and Coconut and special “Benefit” item or items. Every month, ToGoSpa gives you a “hint” on what next month’s The Benefit theme will be ~ It was “Santa Loves You” and I have no idea what that is
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.
I am on the
$25.00 $27.50 variety plan (which there was a price hike!! more on that later) and will receive the same Benefit product as the other plans, so I am glad that I am not missing out on that! ToGoSpa makes it really easy to switch your plans online, so if I need to start restocking my eye gels, I can just switch back to the the $40.00 variety plan. The $25.00 $27.50 variety plan will supply me 2 packs of eye gels (randomly selected from Ice Water, Coconut and Green Tea packs (and it looks like a new one is has been introduced), with each pack containing 3 pairs of gels (6 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!
I receive 2 packs of gels, but you can read my in-depth review on the EYES in my original March post. If ToGoSpa comes out with a new type, I will review those at that time. 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 Ice Water Eyes and Coconut Eyes. Total packs =2. Total treatments = 6. Value $25.00
The “Benefit” Product
Pomegranate Eyes I didn’t even know that ToGoSpa had a pom option!! I really like the sound of this one as it contains two really good anti-aging and antioxidant ingredients: pomegranate and Resveratrol. Resveratrol is an antioxidant that will protect you against sun damage, increase collagen production and also combat free radicals to help prevent cell damage. These are similar to the Ice and Green Tea, as they are clear gels. ToGoSpa included 2 packs of these (6 treatments) that are worth $25.00
Description: With Pomegranate extract and the anti-aging powerhouse Resveratrol, it will be no wonder why we call it the Time Traveler! And as always… No Parabens, No Dyes. Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins A & C, are the foundation ingredients of all our formulas and they work synergistically to moisturize, plump and add nutrients to the delicate under eye zone, creating a more relaxed and refreshed appearance. Each silky application is infused with a combination of natural high-density marine collagen, enzymes, amino acids, natural marine minerals, trace elements, proteins and vitamins. With just one 20 minute application, you will see improved elasticity, texture and overall appearance of the skin below the eye.
Ingredients: Purified Water, Chitosan, Aloe Vera Leaf Gel, Red Seaweed Plant Collagen, L-Ascorbic acid, Resveratrol, Hyaluronic Acid, Pomegranate Extract, Tocopherol, Vegetable Glycerin, Allantoin cosDNA.com analysis
The Neroli Fix Youth Serum (Pomegranate Skin Oil and Neroli Nectar) Facial oils are really popular now and I am glad to see that ToGoSpa offers one ~ but I cannot open it right now! I have two oils in use and since this one specifically states to use within 3 months after opening as it doesn’t contain preservatives, I don’t want to risk it going bad. So, I am a bit grumpy as I wasn’t looking for a new facial oil at this time, but I WILL use it once I finish with one of the ones I have opened. So, it won’t be for a few months 😦 This has a lot of great ingredients in it and the essential oils makes it sound like it would smell divine! This is supposed to be good for all skin types even oily types like myself and can also be used on the hands, body and hair. Getting grumpier by the minute ~ it is taking all of my willpower NOT TO OPEN IT. Resist. I will provide the full description from ToGoSpa as they sound so enthused about this product and can better to it than I can, as I can’t open this right now.. Did I mention I want to open this but can’t?? I might open it as an eye serum, as that is how its original formula was designed to target 😉 Apply/dab on your body/facial parts and if you are using this prior to makeup, make sure to wait 10 minutes for it to fully absorb. I also love the cardboard tube packaging this came in ~ if you don’t like facial oils or are allergic to any of the ingredients, this would make a lovely gift too 🙂 Full Size 14 mL RV $45.00
Description: It’s got a lot of magical ingredients besides Neroli, but the delicate scent of this floral, spicy, citrusy treasure will leave your skin and your senses soothed and pampered in no time. During development of this product we called it Under Eye Serum, but it turned out to be SO amazing, and the benefits of this blend are so far reaching it doesn’t seem fair to limit it to the eye zone. Not only the eye zone, but anywhere else you need a little love… and yes, it IS a potent aphrodisiac, so proceed with caution. Today, we’re calling it the Neroli Fix because it’s a great fix for all skin types!

I really love the new eye gel product! I am all about anti-aging and my eye area does show the most age on me, so getting a new type that specically targets anti-aging concerns is a win. The oil is a wonderful product and I spoke with Erin down at ToGoSpa ~ she says out of all of the products they have, this is her favorite item! I may not sound too enthused about it right now, but that is because I have 2 facial oils open right now and I have to wait until I finish one of them before trying this one ~ due to the “must use by 90 days after opening”. I want to try it NOW ~ haha. I paid $25.00, which included shipping and received a value of $95.00 If you order before the 15th, you can still get this month’s box. So, next month, ToGoSpa hinted that it will be “New Year, New You” ~ a new look, makeup, makeover, things to help you diet? A coupon to a spa (haha)
Are you interested in ToGoSpa Society? If you are, let me know in the comments below and you can join here and tailor your monthly box to your needs! I highly recommend this subscription. If you already are a member, what did you think about this month’s box?
Changes to the Subscription Service
ToGoSpa has changed their website and would love for their existing customers to sign up at their new and improved subscription site. They will include a 20% discount to help you move on over and this discount is for all of your boxes going forward ~ so if you have the $40.00 plan, it will be $32.00 for as long as you stay active. You can even skip a month now, if you feel overwhelmed by eye gels, but that will not negate your “Forever Discount“. I spoke with Erin at ToGoSpa and she also assured me that if you like to switch between plans, like I do, your “Forever Discount” will follow you to the new plan you choose and if there are any issues, to contact them at email@example.com. To find this information, turn over the informational card/letter this month and it will have your unique code there.
Now, some plans were eliminated as they were not that popular, but these are the plans they currently offer
Now, I did notice that the Mini Society was increased by 10%, so I once again reached out to Erin on this increase. The Mini is a new service, only a couple of months old and it is very popular. Unlike many subscription services, ToGoSpa only picks Benefit products from brands and companies they love ~ and they do not get them free either! They pay for those products. The shipping, which is priority mail, is also expensive ~ over $5.00 ~ and they had to raise the price by 10% to help cover some of the shipping OR remove the Mini option. Once that was explained, I feel good about why they did a price hike ~ and Erin agreed that they should have communicated to their customers about this prior as there was nothing on the informational card this month about the increase or any prior communication.
So, for those of us who are existing customers with the Mini Society, we will get the 20% off the new increase, making the box $22.00, which is still cheaper than the original $25.00!! If you were on a plan that has been eliminated from the new website, don’t worry ~ you can still keep it but you cannot manage your subscription yourself anymore. You will have to contact ToGoSpa for any issues or help you may require.
I would like to thank Erin for taking the time to talk to me about these questions and concerns I had 🙂
