I love the packaging for this box. It looks so luxe.
The information card has a brief description of each item as well as costs for full size products and discount codes to be used on the items’ home sites.
Everything in my box.
Black Radiance – Eye Appeal Kajal Eyeliner ($3.99): The pointed tip helps create precise lines and self-sharpens as you rotate it to apply the liner. This went on super smoothly and definitely created a dramatic eye on me. The liner is not smudge proof – great for smoky eye, not so much for general lining.
Jessie’s Girl – Mineralized Baked Eyeshadow in Esmeralda ($3.99): This is valued at $3.99, but it is currently on sale for $2.00. I absolutely love the look of this shadow, almost too pretty to try. It is a soft, shimmery gold and the color is easy to build. The texture is like velvet. This shadow does contain silicones and parabens.

And here they are on together.
Everyday Botanicals – Coarse & Curly Hair Nourishment Oil ($4.49): This oil has a very herby (is that a word?) scent. Its unique formula contains a hydrating blend of Meadow Foam, Baobab, Tea Tree, Lavender, Rosemary, Sage, Horsetail Leaf, Nettle Leaf, Yarrow Extract and Vitamin E. I haven’t tried this yet, but think it will be great to use on days when I’m going giving my hair a break from styling.
Keirenae Spa Essentials – Daily Leave-In Replenishing Conditioner ($3.25): This conditioner has a vegan formula and several benefits including treatment in the early stages of thinning hair loss or chemically damaged hair. There were no directions on how to use this, but the site says it’s good for wash and go styles so I used this on towel-dried hair. My hair had a mildly fruity scent, but was super soft.
Leaders Cosmetics USA – Coconut Gel Moisturizing Recovery Mask ($7.00): I have normal to oily skin, so opted to pass this on to a friend with dry skin. I have used Leaders masks before and like them.
My DNA – Defining Custard ($9.99): This definitely feels like you’re sticking your fingers in custard or pudding. The alcohol-free formula is enhanced with Monoi de Tahiti and honey to lock in moisture to form beautiful, naturally enhanced coils, twists and curls that are not dry or flattened. It was too heavy for my fine hair, so will be gifted. Other subscribers may have received one of these 2 LottaBody items as alternates: Love Me 5-n-1 Miracle Styling Creme or Wrap Me Foaming Mousse.
This month’s box was nearly a $33 value. I like that Cocotique is starting to include more beauty and skin products in their assortment; past boxes have had a strong focus on hair care. Getting 4 full-sized items was also a nice surprise this month.
Let me know if you got a different eyeshadow color or one of the LottaBody products and how they worked for you.
