This month I was excited to receive another beauty box from We Are Onyx. The monthly Onyx Box subscription service caters to women of color and is always a treat.
The theme for February is, of course, love but more like pampering yourself. Items like these are a nice reminder that it’s okay to stop and make time to take care of your hair and body.
A beauty box service is a fun way to find out about new products. This month, I am delighted to find shampoo and conditioner from a brand called Acure. Both are made with all natural ingredients including Moroccan Argan oil. I recently switched back to using ammonia free hair dye so it’s nice to find a shampoo and conditioner that are color safe.
I’ve always wondered how my curls would react to using flax seed gel for styling. Now I can finally put it to the test with Carmella Marie’s My Gel. The product also contains jojoba oil which I understand is good for the hair and scalp. I can’t wait to try it!
Speaking of scalp health, there is also a So Posh Beauty Herbal Hair Tea in this month’s Onyx Box. It has a blend of natural herbs for a tea that conditions the hair and treats the scalp. With peppermint and rosemary in the ingredients list you know it smells delish. Another product that smells good enough to eat is the Coquito Bubble Stuff shower gel by Honeycat Cosmetics. This is what pampering is all about! With ingredients like coconut, honey and rum you can’t go wrong.
To round out the offerings in this month’s box of goodies we have hair products from Creme of Nature. There are two samples from the new Straight from Eden line as well as a full size container of the New Butter-Licious Curls Styling product. All three products are made with natural ingredients and are mineral oil, petrolatum and paraben free.
