Interesting and a good price.

I'm using this:

Which is very cheap, but can be a bit impractical. (Similar, or same, items are available from various brands including Dörr).

I also use the bulb-diffusor from this kit:

Not sure if it helps much, but I can see a difference adding the diffusor-screen. It can be a bit impractical however!

The Godox accessory kit has other items in it to play around with lights too.

I also want to try this:

I had not yet seen this Neewer softbox you got, or a similar item! It looks good, simple and practical!
