Be Kind by Ellen Winter 2022 Unboxing + 15% Off Coupon Code & BOGO Free Deal!

Friday, December 2, 2022

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 Winter 2022 box! 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 and a Buy-One-Get-One-Free box deal! 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 for a total of 4 boxes a year. I love the idea behind the box; It encourages spreading kindness, as well as being kind to yourself. 

Each box is hand-curated by Ellen DeGeneres and is guaranteed to have at least $200+ in value. There are a limited number of boxes available each season so once they're sold out, you'll have to wait for the next season's box.

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 price per 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.

The box always comes with gorgeous artwork from a new artist every season. This season's box was designed by Mikenzi Jones. I love it! Just wait until you see the inside!!!

The box includes a card with a message from the Ellen Team that lists all of your box items and a Be Kind Magazine detailing each item included in the box, how each company is helping or giving back, and ways that you can make a positive change each season!

First out of the box is a DIAN FOSSEY GORILLA FUND Gorilla Adoption Letter, Certificate, and Photo of your gorilla.

The Fossey Fund’s adoption program is unique — the mountain gorillas they monitor and protect every single day are truly wild and are not in a sanctuary. With your adoption of a gorilla through the Fossey Fund, you help ensure the gorillas’ wildness and protection for generations to come!

"Gorillas are beautiful, resilient animals. But poaching and habitat destruction have pushed their populations to the brink of extinction in recent decades. Our brave founder, Dian Fossey, knew that gorillas would need our help to survive. Today, the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund is dedicated to continuing and expanding Dian’s work. We protect gorillas and their forests every day, while also helping the people who live near them."

I remember watching the movie Gorillas in the Mist as a kid with my mom and being awe-struck, fascinated, and then absolutely shattered (if you've seen this movie about the real-life Dian Fossey, you'll know what I mean). Her foundation lives on doing the work that she dedicated her life to. I love that this is included in the box and I know it will make a great gift for so many.

Next out is a large 8 oz. tube of BEACHWAVER Be Confident Co-Wash ($20). (You will either receive this or the Good Vibes Moisturizing Conditioner.

Founded by 3 sisters, Beachwaver prioritizes tools & haircare that are both innovative and ethical with formulas that take care of you, our beaches, the planet, and everything on it! 

"Co-Wash is short for “conditioner-only washing”. In our Be Confident Co-Wash, there is a gentle cleanser that is formulated to add the ultimate moisturizing and strengthening benefits with our active ingredients. It is perfect for dry, wavy, curly and coily hair textures that produce more oils and appear dry. Be Confident Co-Wash will make hair smoother, softer and more manageable. Infused with Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, and Abyssinian Oil, our formula contains HIx Alpha Bond Multipliers (our active strengthener) that builds your hair from the inside out and makes hair cleansed and conditioned."

I remember when Co-Washing was everywhere but there weren't many (or any) co-washing products available in stores. I tried using conventional conditioner and that didn't quite work out for me. This one has cleansers in a conditioning base so I'm excited to try it. Plus, it smells amazing!!!

Next out is a pair of BOMBAS Merino Wool Calf Socks ($20). (Will receive a random color.)

Did you know that socks are the #1 most requested clothing item at homeless shelters? That is the foundation on which Bombas was built! Every pair of socks sold, a pair of socks is donated.

"Merino Wool is a natural wonder that is soft, warm, and moisture-wicking to keep your feet dry and cozy. We blended it with polyester and spandex to provide just the right amount of stretch, tension, and arch support, too. While originally made for winter days, Bombas fans wear Merino year round."

Oh, wow. These wool socks are very soft and they are a light-to-mid-weight wool so will be good year-round. These are made with a honeycomb stitching around the arch for a great fit and have a nice cushioned footbed. Great product and I love that they donate 1:1.

Next out is a bar of ETHEL M CHOCOLATES Reserve, Limited Edition Ultra-Premium Single Origin Dark Chocolate Bar ($8). (Will receive 1 of 4 varieties.)

Ethel M has a commitment to sustainability, high-quality ingredients, and the utmost goal to minimize its impact on the environment. Fun fact: the brand’s Solar Garden powers its factory during daylight production hours, so your chocolate bar is literally MADE WITH SUNSHINE!

"Each Ethel M Chocolates Reserve single origin dark chocolate bar is a journey to a lush, tropical destination! The unique Creamy and Sweet flavor profile of this bar is preserved by preparing our chocolate with just four simple ingredients. Savor each bite as you enjoy cacao from Ghana."

I received the 65% Cacao bar from Ghana. I am a dark chocolate lover and I couldn't resist trying it right away. It is melt-in-your-mouth dark and bitter chocolate with just a hint of sweetness. I don't know if I have the taste buds to tell them apart by region but this chocolate is a must for the Dark Chocolate lover in your life.

Next out is a BE KIND. BY ELLEN Holiday Cookie Cutter Set.

"It's cookie time! Ellen put together a fun cookie cutter set and also included her favorite sugar cookie recipe! We hope you can make these cookies with those you love or at least share a batch with them!"

How cute is this?! This set comes with a gingerbread person, tree, and star cookie cutters in a cute little bag with a recipe for Ellen's sugar cookies. This would make a great stocking stuffer for the young baker or a cute hostess gift.

Next out is a LAUDE THE LABEL Carob Bubble Scarf ($120). (Will receive this or the Up-cycled Denim Scarf. Could not find this scarf on their site but this top is made with the same material.)

This LAUDE the Label scarf is practical and stylish, but also has an incredible story behind it — supporting this brand means supporting women artisans. The scarf in the BE KIND. Box were made by artisans in Guatemala and India. 

"LAUDE the Label empowers women around the world to find financial freedom through safe & meaningful employment at fair wages. Our model is moving the industry toward a more humane approach, where the earth and maker are valued equally to the customer. 100% Cotton. Ethically made in India. Available in textural organic cotton bubble gauze in Carob. Carob is a warm, chocolate brown tone."

This scarf is very soft and large. The fabric is a thicker cotton but the bubble texture makes is feel a little bit slinky and light. I'm loving the color; this chocolate brown is a great neutral and is very on-trend right now.

So, that was the Be Kind Winter 2022 Box! 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.  It had so many products that would make great gifts...if you're willing to let them go.

Or, you can take advantage of the special they're running right now to get a free 2nd box when you subscribe! You'll be able to keep a box and gift a box to someone you love.
