So beauty subscriptions are the new craze lately and if you’re a member of any of these services you’re already familiar with how they work. Well there’s a new box on the block called COCOTIQUE. Cocotique is a new deluxe beauty box subscription service for women of color and diverse ethnicities. Each box contains 5-6 expertly curated beauty and lifestyle samples from skin care, hair care, fragrance, nail and lifestyle companies.
What’s in my Cocotique Beauty Box
Hollywood trainer Jeanette Jenkins Sexy Abs DVD with Kelly Rowland- Have you seen Kelly Rowland’s abs lately? If not click here to see her latest cover of SHAPE magazine! Her body is simply amazing so I was uber excited to get my hands on this DVD. I’ve heard great things about it! I’ll be in my living room (probably complaining) while following this 45 minute long work out hoping to have abs like Kelly.
POLISH & CO. Nail Polish- I squealed with excitement! Everyone knows I love new nail polish! So I am geeked to try a new line. Be sure to check The Nail Files series soon for pictures and a full review of this bright red polish.
EBoost Acai Pomegrante Powder is a blend of Vitamins C, D, B6, B12, as well as 5-HTP, Resveratrol, Green Tea, and Green Coffee. When you add water to the powder this natural energy drink is designed to boost your workout and your life.
Cashmere Curls Leave-In Conditioner claims to have the texture of a heavy serum, without silicones. Since I’m currently wearing my natural hair straight I can’t say how well it works for curl definition and shine.
dermHa face & body wash- I’m very particular about what facial cleanser I use so I haven’t tried this face wash yet. After scanning the ingredients this gentle, hydrating cleanser claims to be formulated for normal, dry or sensitive skin.
COVER FX Mattifying Primer With Anti-Acne Treatment - Oily skin has never been an issue for me and thankfully I don’t have any acne issues so I don’t see myself using this but for anyone interested in how it works one of my favorite beauty bloggers Danielle aka The Style and Beauty Doctor has a great review about the primer and how it compares to other primers.
Pretty Toes Fade-N-Cover -created by Althea Sweet Lucas, a licensed aesthetician and Dr. Nathan Lucas, board certified podiatric surgeon. This product is water-resistant concealer for your feet. Ladies with corns, scars, and hyperpigmentation this is for you! As you can see below Light Chocolate Toes is a tad bit on the dark side for my complexion. I even tried to blend it and it just didn’t match. This is the first time I’ve heard of this so I think the idea is really cool. Especially since nobody likes jacked up feet! I can confidently say this product it is indeed waterproof. After I showered I noticed there were still traces of the concealer on my hand.
Ofra Cosmetics Lip Gloss in Mocha is very sheer and neutral. I was really shocked that it was really creamy and smooth without being sticky. That’s probably due to the gloss being enriched with anti-oxidants and natural sun filters. As a self-proclaimed lip product junkie I’ve tried alot of lip balms, lipsticks, and glosses and I’ve found that any product with anti-oxidants is always a plus because that means it’s actually moisturizing your lips by preventing dryness and as well as sun damage. This nude gloss will definitely be in rotation!
Overall I am extremely pleased with the Cocotique beauty subscription box! Special thank you to Kelly Girl PR for sending over this box! I can’t wait to try the other products. For all the brown girls interested in a beauty service catered to you the subscriptions start as low as $20 per month and it’s definitely worth it.
