Be Kind. by Ellen Summer 2021 Unboxing {Socially Conscious Subscription Box} + 15% Off Code!

Monday, August 23, 2021

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

Hey, guys! I've got another new (to me) box to show you. This is the Be Kind. by Ellen Summer 2021 box! Be Kind. is a quarterly lifestyle subscription box filled with products, hand-picked by Ellen DeGeneris, that are cruelty-free, sustainably sourced, and ethically made. I've got the Summer 2021 box (Fall dropping soon!) plus an exclusive 15% off 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.”

Each quarterly box is thoughtfully curated and filled with hand-picked products from Ellen. The best part? Each box and each product within the box does something to make the world kinder and better.

• Single Boxes: They sell single boxes with no commitment for $64.99. 
• Quarterly Subscription: Subscribe and save by paying $54.99 per season.
• Annual Subscription: Subscribe and pay $197.96 upfront for the whole year and save the most (that comes to $49.49 per box!)

Boxes ship to the US for free, or Canada for an additional $16.00 shipping.

I really like 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, and ways that you can make a positive change each season through donation or volunteer opportunities.

First out of the box is the SnappyScreen Be Kind. Trio ($70).

"This trio is your new summer essential. Your sunscreen, hand sanitizer, and travel bag are cruelty-free and environmentally friendly. Snappy Screen works with Helms Hope, a non-profit focused on raising awareness and enabling early detection of skin cancer through educating high-touch professionals in the beauty and wellness industry.

• SunStyles SPF 30 - SunStyles hypoallergenic, reef-safe sunscreen in SPF 30, which is safe on all clothes & is UVA/UVB broad spectrum.
• Snap Clean Hands - Luxury SNAP Clean Hands spray hand sanitizer in the Signature Scent, which has notes of fresh eucalyptus & crisp spearmint. 
• Clear, durable, half-moon shaped travel bag"

I am so, so pale, so I always have sunscreen handy. I love that this is broad-spectrum and has a higher SPF number. I'm also really loving the hand sanitizer spray! It's got a twist-up button and is such an easy way to get those hands clean when you're out and about.

Next out is a Kamps 6-month Digital Membership voucher ($90).

"Our friends at Kamps Fit want to help you be the best you, so they’re giving you 6 months of unlimited access to their on-demand workouts. That means wherever you are, whenever you want, you can choose between a pilates class, a HIIT class or a strength training class."

I got a bit excited about this, but I'm not ready just yet. I'm looking at a surgery coming up but wanted to get back in shape after, so this is the perfect way to get started. There's no expiration date on the voucher so you can save it for when you're ready!

Next out is a Denik Notebook Set ($19.99).

"Denik partners with artists all over the world to highlight their work through their products. Every time a purchase is made, Denik sets aside a portion of their sales to help fund education projects across the globe. So far, they’ve built five schools: two in Mali, one in Laos, one in Guatemala, and one in Ghana.

• Pack of 2
• 5.25"x8.25"
• 80 lined pages
• 70lb. / 100gsm"

Notebooks always come in handy and these are a good size to throw in a bag and come with 80 sturdy, lined pages each.

"Dr. Botanicals created your new Lemon Superfood all-in-one Rescue Butter to heal and repair your skin. Use it as a rescue treatment when your skin needs some TLC or a night cream when you’re dry and parched. Dr. Botanicals is vegan, cruelty-free and uses only natural ingredients."

I've used this before and really liked it, so I'm glad to have received another tube. It really is an all-in-one product. You can use it anywhere you need a boost of moisture: your face, cuticles, or knees and elbows.

Next out is the Ettika Layered Necklace ($45).

"Designed in Los Angeles, Ettika’s jewelry is created to make you feel the best version of yourself. Every time you add a product to your cart, you can add a $5 donation to one of their partner foundations and Ettika will thank you with 15% off your purchase."

I have some pieces from Ettika and really enjoy them. This necklace is layered with 3 delicate chains and hung with sparkling crystals and textured discs. Can't wait to style it!

Last out of the box is the Hamilton Perkins Everyday Pouch ($50).

"Hamilton Perkins Collection takes waste and turns it into material for their products, like your Everyday Pouch. Some of these materials are plastic water bottles while others are vinyl billboards or even pineapple leaves! Bring it with you wherever you go and know that you’re helping reduce and recycle waste."

This pouch comes in a linen and heathered coral colorblock with a vegan leather wrist strap. It's roomy enough for a 13" laptop and has an inner patch pocket edged with matching vegan leather. 

This is such a cute pouch! I love that it's made with recycled plastic water bottles.

So, that was the Be Kind. Summer 2021 Box and I really enjoyed checking out the products and the companies, too. It came with 6 items (really 8 if you count the hand sanitizer spray and pouch) and I think the curation was spot-on for summer.

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. My box was worth $294.89!!! 

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