Whats in My Ebony Box July 2017 | Missybeelondon

 

 

My Ebony box is a monthly beauty box subscription, delivered to your door.  I enjoy getting this box every month, because I know I will use most of the products in this box, especially as they are catered for women of colour.

So what is included in this months box?

Well…………………….

African print luggage tag made by Feed my Creative  a very useful item to put on your luggage when travelling.

WOKE sleep mask by founder design My Ebony box much needed when trying to sleep in the daytime, or when the sun rises early in the mornings

Eight – leave in conditioner by Jim + Henry   A very nice smelling conditioner made with Shea and rosemary essence. Will be trying this out soon.

Blueberry scrub by Soap Connoisseur smells very nice,  can’t wait to use this scrub.  Also made with natural ingredients

Goddess necklace, handmade in the USA. My Ebony Box  Very pretty. So glad it fit my big neck. A pretty symbol design.

Glorious fist badge designed by founders design by My Ebony Box.  Love me a badge I do

Fruit infused water 250ml by Phrooti  all I can say while filming unboxing video on YouTube, I was very thirsty.  Been having many hot days here in the UK.  so I had to drink it after filming and taking pictures. Must say it is very refreshing, low in calories. Getting a natural fruity boost.

Last of all is

Anti-bacterial hand wipes by Purell  everybody need anti-bacterial  wipes especially when outside,  my main example will be using public transport and touching handles and poles after other people have touched it.  Very risky during flu season, great addition to the box

My favorite item in the box is…………………………… Can you guess?  Well it is the WOKE sleep mask.

WOKE

 

Birchbox July 2017

So what is included in this months Birchbox

I mean check out the contents above in a nice summer themed box.

So here are the contents

Benefit cosmetics lip and cheek stain. A very nice product I can put on my lips, but I have decided to include it in my giveaway, once I hit a milestone on my YouTube channel, missybeelondon.

Balance me, micellar water, sample size. I hope to use this product in the future, a great addition to birchbox.

Percy & Reed overnight recovery cream, sample size. A very nice produce I will be using very soon.

Rituals hammam delight foaming shower gel. I have a few Ritual products, so delighted that this was included. And of course I will be using this soon.

Catherine Malandrino Romance EDP sample size, smells very floral. And I can pop it in my handbag.

Finally my favourite item is the POP beauty eyeshadow palette, Champagne Mocha. I love the colours in this palette, and know I can create many looks, and colours suit my skin tone.

Birchbox what’s was in June box, this is my first box.

Birchbox June 2017 review

This is my first birchbox.
I am pleasantly surprised with the contents, and the purse the contents came in.

Basically I am trying out different beauty box subscriptions, I had my run with glossybox. And now trying out other boxes.

The theme for June birchbox is Day tripping, has 5 items
The contents are as follows –
-Full size MeechNMia brow pencil
I think it’s a browny black colour I received. It is used on eye brows to even out uneveness. Cruelty free formula. Not really sure if I will use it to be honest, but can maybe use it as a eyeliner.

-Amiko perk up dry shampoo.
Well I don’t really use dry shampoo, for my Afro hair, so I guess this will be gifted to a friend. This is claimed to be like a shot of espresso for your hair. Hydrates, strengthens, rejuvenates healthy hair, no washing required.

-Full size Cowshed cow pat hand cream.
I don’t really use hand cream often, but it will be useful in the colder months. Has a cheeky name, nourishing hand lotion, which includes the ingredients of grapefruit, and coriander. To leave skin moisturised, toned and supple

-Scrub love coffee body scrub
Made from 100% natural ingredients, which exfoliates the skin, to remove dead skin cells and hydrates the skin. Coffee is a ingredient.

-Cynthia Rawley beauty brightening illuminator.
Claims to be a suit all highlighter is great for adding a healthy dose of radiance to all skin tones. I don’t use highlighters, so will give this a good. Hope to see good results from using it.

And I nearly forgot to say, all products came in a very nice and sassy cosmetics case, yellow and pink stripes. How handy is that, plus practical too.

Thanks

“Glossybox unboxing | June 2017 | missybeelondon” on YouTube

Glossybox June 2017
Here is the contents of the box

You can also watch the youtube video above to see me unbox the glossybox.

www.glossybox.co.uk

This is unfortunately my last glossybox.

111skin space – defense bright eye lift gel

A very nice item to be included in this box, as I have bags under my eyes.

And 111skin states that this gel reduces the appearance of dark circles, minimising puffiness and softens the appearance of fine line. So good

Sleek makeup – power plump lips crayon

I must admit I do like the colour, and hope it looks nice when I try it on. And I know Sleek makeup as a brand is  very good. Another item to add my makeup bag.

Eness cosmetics – argan oil hand cream

I ain’t a big fan of hand creams right now, especially when the weather is so warm. Argan oil is such a body beneficial ingredient. It’s also great that it is normal size, sample size.

Batiste – heat and shine spray

To be frank it is a good product. But not suitable in my opinion for Afro hair, and would never try this I’m my hair.

Manna kadar cosmetics – sheer glo

I am unsure is this is suitable for my skin tone, but will give it a try

Beautypro –  Black diamond

Such a shame it’s sample sachet size 🙁  Would of been great if it was normal bottle size, not a sample. Black diamond has activated charcoal which is a pure ingredient. Very good to know.

 

Overall the items I get in glossybox varies, because some products I don’t think are suitable for women of colour. And at the end don’t use them.

So there are always items I don’t use, which is such a waste.

This will be my last glossybox, as there are many many many other monthly beauty box subscription to try.

I have had a good run with glossybox, as this is my fourth box.

Thanks
