Be Kind by Ellen Fall 2022 Unboxing + 15% Off Coupon Code!

I received a box from Be Kind in order to facilitate an unboxing; All opinions are my own. This post may contain some affiliate links.

I'm back with an unboxing of the Be Kind. by Ellen Fall 2022 box! It's been about a year since I did this one and I'm excited to start again. Be Kind is a quarterly lifestyle subscription box filled with products hand-picked by Ellen DeGeneres that are cruelty-free, sustainably sourced, and ethically made. I've also got an exclusive 15% off discount code! Let's unbox it!

About Be Kind. by Ellen

"Hi! It's me Ellen DeGeneres. I created this BE KIND. by ellen subscription box as a way to help people spread kindness. You’ll get a box full of fun, unique, amazing products that I love and want to share with you. I also wanted to focus on brands and products that do social good.”

Be Kind is a quarterly subscription. That means you'll receive a box every 3 months. Each box is hand-curated by Ellen and guaranteed at $200+ in value. There are a limited number of boxes available each season.

The best part? Each box and each product within the box does something to make the world kinder and better.


As you can see, if you prepay for a year at a time, you'll get the best pricing for each box. Boxes ship to the contiguous US for free and Puerto Rico, Alaska, and Hawaii will incur small additional fees. Shipping to Canada is an additional $16.00.

I love the idea behind the box. It encourages spreading kindness, as well as being kind to yourself. The box includes a booklet on top detailing each item included in the box, how each company is helping or giving back, info on the season's box artist (this season is Jess Miller), and ways that you can make a positive change each season through donation or volunteer opportunities!

First out of the box is a bundle that includes a Weekly Planner, Reusable Sticky Notes, Mini Notepad, & Smudge-Free Tackie Markers from M.C. Squares x Ellen (approx. $45-$50).

- M.C. Squares is planting tens of thousands of trees with Trees For the Future, saving billions of sticky notes from landfills, and are making its products by using 100% wind-powered manufacturing in the USA.

  • "Weekly planner: Our planners are huggers, they stick to shiny surfaces like magnets to metal. Never miss a date on mirrors, glass appliances, windows, or cabinets. Write, Stick, Erase, and Repeat over 2,000 times! Save money and trees by never buying paper planners again.
  • Reusable Sticky Notes: Stick like magic to most shiny appliances like fridges, mirrors, windows, lockers, plastic bins, laptops, and monitors without leaving behind sticky residue. Can be used thousands of times to help save trees while saving money by never buying paper sticky notes again.
  • Mini Notepad: 2-Year Reusable Notepads. Durable whiteboard finish and Gorilla Board core, we’ll replace any Jotter that doesn't last for 2 years! They won’t stain, warp, or chip. They can be washed with water and a soft cloth for reuse thousands of times. Save hundreds by replacing wasteful paper pads.
  • Tackie Markers: Smudge-free markers for whiteboards and glass to prevent accidentally erasing your big ideas. Our wet-erase ink cleans off any whiteboard, dry-erase board, chalkboard, porcelain or glass with just a damp cloth."

I've never seen these before but they're genius! They are a reusable weekly sticky planner and 2 sticky notes that are restickable up to 2,000 times. They use a wet-erase-type marker so you don't accidentally smudge them. It also includes a reusable notepad that's more rigid and can be carried around with you and a set of 6 colorful wet-erase markers. Nice! 

This is an exclusive Ellen-branded set so I had to guestimate the value based on the items available on their site.

Next out is a set of 146 Savvy & Sorted Preprinted Minimalist Spice Labels (approx. $19).

- Australian-based Savvy & Sorted proudly donates a portion of profits to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation to help rebuild coral reefs that protect ecosystems and save vulnerable marine species. They are also active in ocean clean-up initiatives around the world.

"Kitchen Labels for Pantry and Spice Jars are the perfect way to organize and modernize your home. Our minimalist spice labels with Black Text on Cool White Waterproof Stickers are beautifully modern and easy to read. Stickers are preprinted on waterproof premium vinyl that won't tear or peel off but can easily be removed and replaced. Each set includes the most essential Spice and Seasoning Labels as well as 3 Expiration Date and 1 DIY Blank Labels."

I wasn't sure about these at first, but they include a huge number of stickers that includes most (if not all) of the spices that you might have in your pantry. They're cute, easy to read and, darn it, I want to do my whole dang spice cabinet with these stickers now. 😅

- This towel is made from 2 recycled plastic bottles! From manufacturing partners to the materials used in each product, Geometry helps to reduce waste in our environment and conserve water during the manufacturing process. 

"Our tightly woven Geoweave™ fabric results in an increased drying and cleaning surface area that is perfectly soft and powerfully effective when taking care of spills, drying dishes, or wiping down countertops, all without scratching."

This is a beautiful tea towel that's a generous size and has a sewn-on loop for hanging. This company makes some gorgeous prints; I'm a little obsessed!

- Through Urban Hydartion’s partnership with WATERisLIFE they donate 1 gallon of water from product sold and have since raised enough funds to contribute to the building of three clean drinking water wells in communities in Kenya. 

"Urban Hydration Lemon & Berries Micellar Cleansing Water helps promote a healthy and youthful appearance by plumping, hydrating, and brightening the skin with the help of our berry blend formula. Lemons are a natural astringent and detoxifier which help rejuvenate and add luster to dull skin. This no-rinse formula is a great cleanser and moisturizer in one!"

The formula sounds very nice. This would be great in a gym bag or on-the-go since there's no rinsing required.

Next out is a Grande Cosmetics Grande Mascara ($25).

- Founder & CEO, Alicia Grande created Grande Gives Back, a social give-back platform to support causes that are at the forefront of society, and to help raise awareness for health, safety, and equality for all.

"Condition while you coat! This exclusive mascara not only provides extreme volume and length, but is infused with a lash-loving blend of peptides, panthenols, and natural waxes. These key ingredients condition your lashes while you coat them to promote the appearance of healthier looking lashes over time. Its buildable, clump-free, water-resistant formula is easily removable to prevent lash breakage while keeping the lashes flexible and strong. The applicator brush is made with the perfect combination of hard and soft fibers to lift lashes and achieve ultimate volume."

Grande Cosmetics makes lash and brow growth serums, plumping products, and other cool beauty products and tools, so I'm excited to be able to try out their mascara.

Next out is a COSRX Vitamin C 23 Serum ($25).

- Korean Beauty brand, COSRX is providing skincare solutions that are both powerful and affordable, and revolutionizing accessible skincare around the world!

"A highly concentrated serum that fades acne scars and brightens the complexion to revitalize dull and dry skin. Feel the benefits of Vitamin C without irritation. "

I've seen rave reviews for this! I can always use a great vitamin C serum to help fade hyperpigmentation so I'm happy to get this one.

Last out is are two sets of Color Street Nail Polish Strips in Munich Mulberry & Sahara Jewel ($25).

- The Color Street Foundation has pledged $1 million as the National Signature Partner for March for Babies 2022, and they are making a major difference for mothers and children in local and national communities alike. Each box comes with both colors!

"For a sophisticated pink, we love the muted dusty berry color of Munich Mulberry. Creme finish. 

Sahara Jewel brings serious glitz to your fingertips with multicolored glitter on earthy brown. Glitter finish."

I love nail polish strips; They're a great way to change up your nail polish color quickly, with no mess, and they don't chip like regular nail polish. We got 2 full sets and they're both going to be great colors for Fall. 

...and an extra this season...

 This season, enjoy $40 OFF BE KIND. Marketplace items that are already discounted 50-80%! The Marketplace features our Best of BE KIND. products – all socially conscious and handpicked by Ellen!

So, that was the Be Kind Fall 2022 Box and it was a great mix of fun products to add to your beauty, skincare, and organization routine. The price of the box is far less than the value of the items you receive, which is something you should look for in a subscription box. I'll get use out of everything in the box and I'm looking forward to organizing my spice cabinet!

I've also got an exclusive discount code for you!
