Be Kind by Ellen Spring 2023 Unboxing + 15% Off Coupon Code!

Wednesday, March 22, 2023

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.

Hello, I'm back with an unboxing of the Be Kind by Ellen Spring 2023 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 just for my readers! 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 Michelle Christensen. I started using these as storage because they're too pretty to let go of!

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!

It's a Golden Ticket season! They did a Golden Ticket in a previous box and it's always an awesome prize. Included in each box will be a Golden Ticket Entry and this season's ticket could get you a Trip for 2 to Puerto Rico! No need to do anything, they're just letting you know that as a subscriber, you've already been entered to win it. Cross your fingers and cross your toes!

Next out is an AMERICAN MEADOWS Meadowscaping Seed Starter Kit (5 pure wildflower seed packets included).

We can all do good through gardening! American Meadows is redefining the world’s understanding of gardening by connecting us to a sense of purpose, the land, and everyone around us.

This meadowscaping kit contains a Monarch Butterfly seed mix, Pollinator Wildflower seed mix, Purple Coneflower seed, Zinnia Elegans seed, and Autumn Beauty seed mix. Can't wait to plant these in a bare patch we've got. 

Next out is a pair of MY LITTLE BELLEVILLE Lavender Gardening gloves ($23). (Will receive either a Lavender or Honey Bee pair.)

This brand is a woman-owned small business that focuses on sustainability and partners with charities like Unicef, Red Cross, and more. We hope these gloves inspire you to create beauty all around you.

"On the front, beautiful purple and green lavender blossoms reach up each finger, and they are all tied with a fun silver metallic bow at the ends. On the other side, a cute dotted grip pattern to help grab the most noxious of weeds. Durable, each carefully made to last. Washable, one size fits most. 70% cotton 30 % polyester. Made in the USA"

These gardening gloves feel very high quality and are cute to boot. Love them!

Next out is a BE KIND. BY ELLEN “You Dig It” Gardening Trowel.

Here’s something we know you’ll really dig! This trowel is the perfect partner to your gardening gloves and Meadowscaping Seed Starter Kit. You can use it for urban gardening, weeding your yard, or excavating buried treasure. It’s up to you!

This is a nice, solid gardening trowel. It will sure come in handy this spring!

Next out is a STYLE EDIT Root touch-up Powder ($35.99). (Will receive 1 of 5 shades.)

Style Edit makes ethically sourced products in the USA that are vegan and inspire confidence. The brand’s collection of hair care contains no animal products or byproducts, and they never perform animal testing.

"Root Touch Up: Style Edit’s ultra-light root cover up binding powder instantly conceals unwanted grays or root re-growth with just one swipe, for salon worthy hair, every day! Our unique sponge applicator allows for precise application of our root touch up powder – conceal what you want, where you want it."

Very cool product! I definitely have some grays to cover.

Next out is a GURUNANDA Concentrated Mouthwash ($15.49).

This is a brand that employs quality standards from seed-to-shelf & creates products that reduce excessive waste. Each bottle contains 300 uses, which means less packaging, less shipping, and a smaller carbon footprint.

"Enjoy fresher breath and a balanced oral microbiome while helping the planet with GuruNanda Concentrated Mouthwash! Developed by a team of Western and Ayurvedic dental experts, this mouthwash is formulated with a proprietary blend of seven 100% pure and natural essential oils for whole mouth health and fresher breath. It’s all of nature’s best, with nothing extra. Just add 4 drops of our concentrated mouthwash to water and swish for 1 minute. Each bottle lasts about 300 uses. That means fewer packaging materials, less shipping, and a smaller carbon footprint. Good for you, good for the planet."

BOLO: Gurunanda Concentrated Mouthwash. Last seen: Being snatched up by my husband directly after this photo was taken. 

Seriously, though, my hubs just had some dental work and got dry socket for which the dentist recommended clove oil. As soon as we saw this contained clove oil, he was excited to try it and LOVES it! Can recommend.

Next out is a BOB’S RED MILL 5 Pack of Bob’s Bars in Peanut Butter Chocolate & Oats ($6.99). (Will receive 1 of 2 Flavors.)

Bob’s Red Mill is 100% employee-owned and one of only ~8k businesses in the country! They’re on a mission of Inspiring Joy with Wholesome Foods!

"Our popular Peanut Butter Chocolate & Oats Bob's Bar is now available in a five-bar multipack! Luscious chocolate, whole grain oats, hearty peanut butter and organic honey combine to make the perfect snack, wherever your day may take you. Treat yourself!"

I love peanut butter, chocolate, and oats, so this bar tasted delish to me. It has lots of chocolate chips and oats with a nice peanut butter flavor. I usually don't like the pureed bar texture but these had a nice amount of chunky ingredients added.

Next out is a jar of BEEKEEPER’S NATURALS Superfood Honey + Wooden Honey Dipper ($16.99 for 4.4 oz. jar of honey).

Beekeeper's Naturals is making medicinal-grade, immune-supporting honey with antioxidants and other potent ingredients from nature! Improve energy levels, support your immune system, and enhance cognitive function. The brand continues to support pollinator protection with The University of California Davis Honey Bee Research Facility, and also donate 10% of the profits from their apparel line to them. Use your wooden honey dipper for a mess-free dunk!

"B.Powered combines all the sustainably sourced ingredients of the hive to fuel your mind and body. With propolis, royal jelly, and bee pollen, this therapeutic blend delivers lasting energy, supports immune health, and promotes overall balance."

This superfood will be easy to get down. It tastes delicious and reminds me of getting beeswax in the honey years and years ago. Nice product and comes with a cute honey dipper.

Last out is a DIAMOND ART CLUB Custom BE KIND. Diamond Painting Kit ($15).

This is a woman-founded company that supports artists around the world like Ukrainians displaced by global conflict. Diamond Art Club also ethically sources their artwork from a variety of artists and takes care to properly license every design!

I've never tried the Diamond-Painting trend but I can see how this would be a fun activity on a rainy day. Love the art and message!


So, that was the Be Kind Spring 2023 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 a lot of products to help bring in the feeling of Spring (c'mon already!), to help you to take better care of you, and start a new craft. What a fun box!
