WHATS WAS IN MY EBONY BOX BEAUTY BOX OCTOBER 2017

All the items in this months box

Well first of all it was just Black History Month in October, and also the first year anniversary of My Ebony Box tooo. Happy Birthday MY EBONY BOX!!!!!!!!!

October 2017 was a good month in general, with many celebrations and events I attended. Including Youtube events #youtubeblack as I have a Youtube channel also where I do unboxing videos for My Ebony Box too.


Also Black girls festival, Hair events, and networking events.


My Ebony Box is a beauty box subscription which caters for women of colour, with women of colour friendly products. A black owned business. You can recieve a box every month to you door. And also deliver worldwide.

Ok so lets get into what was in Octobers My Ebony Box, which had 9 items altogether. First even before I opened the box I could smell a amazing lovely aroma.


Which was Nylah herbal hair tea – Glow blend, which is made from natural herbs including Rosemary, Horsetail, Peppermint, and Nettle. All great ingredients “to stimulate the hair scalp to promote growth”. And I can’t wait to use this in my hair.

Palmers Cocoa butter tub for the body and Olive oil deep conditioner for hair.  Palmers is a brand I have been using for many years and I am loving how they have many formulas and skincare and haircare products to choose from. I can’t wait to use the Olive oil deep conditioner in my hair as it is slightly damaged and will be trimming it soon also.

Green and Black Organic chocolate, I do have a sweet tooth and love chocolate. I will saving this bar for a special moment. I like to put chocolate on my tongue and just let it melt, hmmmmmmmmm. Nice and better that their chocloate is organic.

Shetai Natural hair butter, which is made from whipped shea butter. love it, love it, love it. I already use this in my hair, so now I have a extra one. I mainly use it along my hairline edges and massage it in to stimulate the area to promote hair growth as my edges are not the best. Great addition to the box.

Some lovely accessories included too which was a very nice Gold rimmed picture frame, with the insert saying “fill me with love” so nice.

Badges from Black on Paper, which say “#black glamour squad” and “making her story”.


Earring included from My Ebony Box, I do love to rock big earrings in general, I wear them most days and on my Youtube videos too. So now I have more to add to my collection.

My favourite items in this month box are……….

  • Gold rimmed picture frame
  • Shetai Hair butter, for my hair
  • Palmers cocoa butter for the body, well needed in this change of weather

Palmer’s Coconut oil formula haircare products review

So here is my review on using Palmer’s coconut oil formula hair care products.  Above are the shampoo and repairing conditioner. You know the routine. Apply shampoo, massage in hair, rinse. I did this process twice as I have Afro texture hair. Then I applied the repairing conditioner, left to settle on my hair for around 5-10 minutes, then rinsed out thoroughly. I towel dried my hair then applied the Strong roots spray and leave in conditioner spray, picture below.

I loved the fragrance of each product apart from the Strong roots spray. I was very grateful to receive this products to try. You should be available to find these in drugstores, as I have seen the products in Superdrugs in the UK. Or check out the palmers website.

Also these products have

  • no dyes
  • no sulphates
  • no parabens
  • no phthalates
  • no mineral oil
  • no gluten

I always loved Palmers original Cocoa Butter Body lotion, but you know what? its good to try new things which I am doing.

Palmers is a well established brand

Plus here is my short first impressions video

Hope this was a good read

“My fave beauty and hair products | missybeelondon” on YouTube

Here is my blog post to associate with my YouTube video, my fave beauty and hair products.

Freedom pro conceal and correct palette www.tambeauty.com since I got this, it has been my go to concealer under my eyes and around dark areas of my mouth, I only use one shade even though there are 6 shades on the palette, but have not experimented with all the shades yet. Guess I need to do that.

Leo lip gloss http://www.tambeauty.com my favourite go to lip gloss to date, as I have forgotten what I used to wear before, plus I have many lip glosses and lipsticks, lol
Silicone facial cleansing pad £1.50 from Primark. Since I got this couple months ago and started to use it. I feel my face I cleaner, the texturised surface massages the skin on my face, improves circulation at the same time, and really gets into the skin to remove particles dirt build up and makeup. A Best Buy a a cost of only £1.50
Palmers cocoa butter micro fine exfoliating facial scrub, which I was given at a event in May, and had to try it as I do not have any exfoliating scrub. Was pleasantly surprised how good it is. I would say I use it every other day. And it is not to harsh that you can not use it regular.
Dudu osun black soap 99p in hair supplies stores, this has been I product I have been using since early on in the year, and noticed results mainly on my face especially, even though I use it on my body also. Made from natural ingredients as well.
Garnier rose water tonic can be purchased in many places, I was previously using the same brand but cleansing milk, but as the weather got hotter I thought to try out and use the tonic. I am very happy with this product, and it does not dry out my combination skin.
Body shop tea tree anti-imperfection daily solution http://www.bodyshop.co.uk  I found out about this from another youtuber, and thought to try it as well. And glad I got it from my local body shop store. As we know tea tree has amazing properties on helping combat blemishes and spots. Which I noticed when I started using it over a month ago in May 2017.
Technic bronzing eye shadow purchased on ebay, I got this awhile back and has been my got to eyeshadow palette, even though I have many more, lol. The colours are really pigmented which I love, and pop out when applied to eyelids.
My ebony box http://www.myebonybox.com Which is my fave monthly beauty box subscription, I have done many unboxing videos on my youtube channel, to see what is inside the boxes. I especially love it has the contents are catered for women of colour and products and items I do use, unlike other beauty boxes.
Charlene’s hairipy hair products http://www.charleneshairipy.co.uk OMG what can I say about Charlene’s hairipy products, since using them many months ago, I noticed the difference on my natural afro hair. It is more stronger in general. Made from natural vegan ingredients.
Eco styler gel coconut purchased from a hair supply store, I decided to try this gel after seeing many videos and creations created using the gel. slightly sceptical if it would be ok in my hair, but was pleasantly happy with styles I created using the gel. and will off course use it in future hairstyles where needed.
afrocenchix soothe natural scalp oil http://www.afrocenchix.co.uk Which I would use after I wash my hair, to apply and nourish my scalp, which it does. Smells very nice too.
Shetai hair care butter http://www.shetai.co.uk I would use this while styling my hair, made with natural vegan ingredients too. Have no problems with it
fit4akiing charcoal toothpaste http://www.fit4akiing.com This is the natural toothpaste I use. Made from natural ingredients, noticed improvements on my teeth. I don’t experience any gum infections anymore.

First impressions of using Palmers Micro fine exfoliating facial scrub.

I was given this exfoliating scrub in a goodie bag from a event I went to recently at Afro hair and beauty live event, in London.

I used it for the first time after I had makeup on my face for a YouTube video I had just did.

Well what can I say………………..

It has a nice aroma, I applied it to my silicone facial cleansing pad. Applied a small amount and massaged it on my face to remove the makeup on my face.

It worked wonders so easily. When I rinsed my face, it felt so clean and refreshed.

And don’t forget to moisturise your face after drying.

The micro fine exfoliating properties from crushed walnut shells, and cocoa powder, were great ingredients to be included in this product.

Ingredients include cocoa powder, evening primrose, crushed walnut shells, and shea butter.

Also 100% free of parabens, phthalates dyes, hence the natural colour of this scrub.


And is suitable for sensitive skin 🙂

It is recommended that you can use this product 2-3 times a week or more. It just depends on skin sensitivity.
