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

Monday, July 10, 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.

Hi, I'm back with an unboxing of the Be Kind by Ellen Summer 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.

Right now, when you buy a box, you'll get one free! No code is needed. It would make a great gift.

The box always comes with gorgeous artwork from a new artist every season. This season's box was designed by Sabina Fenn. I started using these as storage because they're too pretty to let go!

The box includes 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 is an ELLEN SHOP Heart Cheese Board & Cheese Knives Set ($55).

"We heart this set, and we know you will too! You know it, you love it, there are a million ways to use it, and it’s best when shared with a loved one — cheese. Gather your friends, loved ones, or let’s be real — yourself, and enjoy this Heart Cheese Board and Cheese Knives Set as it’s meant to be."

I've been looking for a cute little cheese knife set and this one is perfect! It comes with a heart-shaped bamboo board that can be used as a cheese board, serving board, or even decor.

Full Circle Home is focused on creating safe and sustainable home care products that are both functional and responsible — they’ve even committed to using only recycled plastics within their products by 2025.

  • Tree-free | 100% rayon from bamboo
  • One sheet = one roll of traditional paper towels - one roll = 30 rolls of traditional paper towels
  • Absorbs 7 times its weight
  • 10.63" x 2.56” x 2.56” | 27cm x 6.5cm x 6.5cm

Very cool! These are thicker and more sturdy than paper towels so one sheet is meant to go a long way. Since they're made from bamboo, they should be compostable, too.

  • 2 reusable food-safe, BPA-free storage bags
  • Leak-proof, air-tight "lock" seal design
  • Stores flat for easy packing and storage
  • 8.19" x 7.99" x 0.16" | 20.8cm x 20.3cm x 0.40cm

These are super-cute and well made. The zipper is easy to manage and they're a generous size.

Next out is a code for BOOKSIO "Slightly South of Simple" By Kristy Woodson Harvey - E-Book or Audio Book ($35). 

Woman-owned and charity driven, Booksio isn’t your average online bookstore. They donate 10% of all profits each month to charity, and customers can direct 10% of their purchases to a charity of their choice.

"From the next “major voice in Southern fiction” (New York Times bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand) comes the first in an all-new series chronicling the journeys of three sisters and their mother—and a secret from their past that has the potential to tear them apart and reshape their very definition of what it means to be a family."

I believe you will either receive an eBook or Audiobook and I received an eBook code. Sounds like a nice beach read!

Next out is a box of VAHDAM TEAS Tropical Paradise Summer Tea Assortment ($35). 

Vahdam Teas are handpicked in India, climate and plastic-neutral, and packaged to preserve its peak freshness.

Includes 2 each of 5 varieties: Lemon Ginger, Turmeric Ginger, Chamomile Mint Citrus, Vanilla Spiced, & Sweet Himalayan.

I'm a fan of Vahdam teas so I'm excited to try these.

Next out is a SABINA FENN Postcard Set of 3 ($15). 

These beautiful cards, created by our incredibly talented summer box artist Sabina Fenn, can also be used by their recipients as wall art with a simple frame.

These are super-cute and I definitely like the idea of framing them for wall decor.


Next out is a 1 oz. tube of 100% PURE Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream  ($29).

100% PURE’s products, include skincare staples, naturally pigmented makeup, and hair and body must-haves, that are 100% cruelty-free and contain no heavy metal dyes or harsh or toxic ingredients.

"Anti-inflammatory, caffeine-rich green tea and coffee de-puff while increasing circulation to brighten dark circles. Concentrated with potent anti-aging vitamins and antioxidants to awaken the eye area, and nourishing rosehip oil for softer, more youthful skin."

Sounds like a refreshing eye cream!

Next out is a MINERAL FUSION Hydro Shine Lip Gloss Bundle in Bermuda & Jaipur ($30). 

Mineral Fusion’s Hydro-Shine glosses are hypoallergenic, vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free, and contain no harsh ingredients, artificial fragrances, or parabens: it’s a shine you can feel good about.

  • Vegan, non-sticky lip gloss
  • Formulated with sunflower oil to keep your lips moisturized longer
  • Vitamin E keeps lips soft and nourished
  • Premium high-payoff wand provides the perfect amount of gloss
  • Bermuda: Light pink
  • Jaipur: Peachy pink

I'm constantly using lip gloss and these will be very pretty this summer!

So, that was the Be Kind Summer 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. This had some home items to help you go greener and to entertain, some pretty art, a new read, and a few beauty products perfect for summer. A very nice box this season!
