There's a new monthly beauty box subscription on the block and it's called Cocotique. Cocotique is specially targeted for woman of color. The boxes are curated with makeup and products that work better with woman with a diverse ethnicity. Every month subscribers are sent 5-6 deluxe, full or travel sized beauty products.
I was sent Cocotique's December box to review. Regularly the box would cost $20 (including shipping), but like other sample beauty clubs it's worth way much more. My Cocotique "Single Ladies" box included:
- Cover FX Anti-Age Smoothing Eye Primer (full size) $34
- Phytospecific Moisturizing Styling Cream (sample packet) N/A
- Black Opal Color Splurge Patent Lips (full size) $6.75
- Curls Coconut Sublime Conditioner (travel size) $3.75
- Su-Kari Peach Body Butter (travel size) $3.19
- Vitaman Face Moisturizer & Shampoo (sample size) N/A
- Single Ladies Season 2 DVD $29.95
As you can see the December box is worth over $80. For only $20, that's a great deal. The best thing about this box was that the color of the lip gloss was a color that goes great with my skin complexion. It's bothersome when other beauty box subscriptions have eye-shadow, nail or lip colors that don't compliment black or Latina skin. I also thought the conditioner and styling cream were wonderful, because my hair is naturally curly and very dry, so it's nice to have products built for my grade of hair.
Overall I'm loving this box. This is great for African-American, Indian, Middle Eastern, Latina girls or anyone in between. The box's price is a bit more steep then most boxes, but for the high quality products and sizes, I definitely think it's worth it. Plus, most of the samples came with a discount. For example: Using a special code, get 20% off any Black Opal product, or 35% any at www.Curls.biz.
