COCOTIQUE is celebrating “You” this March. This month, our insert says to expect products that pamper our skin, face and hair!! It says to expect 4 full sized products in the box. So let’s see what we have.
Leaders Cosmetics – Moisturizing Recovery Mask – FULL SIZE – Value: $7.00
I subscribed to Mask Maven for six months and loved it! I love receiving beauty masks in subscription services. They make great stuffers for gift boxes and I personally love wearing one when I’m soaking in the tub. It’s the icing to a spa-night cake!
Everyday Botanicals – Hair Nourishment Oil – 1oz – Value: $ 4.50
I love getting oils in subscription boxes. It’s one of my top favorite things to receive. I don’t care for the scent but it works just fine. I’m using it in my pre-wash routine so that the scent rinses away. I’ll also repurpose the bottle, I love tiny pump! It’s perfect for traveling.
Keirenae – Leave in Replenishing Conditioner – 2oz? – Value: $3.25
I’m so happy this card was in the box too. The container itself has no other info except the tiny hard to see logo sticker shown above. It says you can use this spray everyday on wet or dry hair. I’m also not a big fan of the scent on this one. I may have some essential oils that I can try to adjust the smell with. Otherwise, I can definitely use this in one sitting as a detangler on wash day.
Lottabody – Coconut & Shea Oils Wrap Me Foaming Mousse – FULL SIZE – Value: $2.75
Nothing new here. I’ve received too many of these in between hair subscription services. It works great, but it doesn’t add a ton of value to the box in my opinion and the repetition of particular hair brands makes me want to pull out all of my hair…well, not really, but you know what I mean! LOL
Black Radiance – Kajal Eyeliner in Jet Black – FULL SIZE – Value: $3.99
I enjoy receiving Black Radiance products, my local drug stores do not carry it and I have to drive quite a ways out of the norm to see their products in person. I haven’t opened this liner yet, I just opened a mini liner I picked up from Sephora and I don’t want this one to dry out before I get to use it properly. I’m sure it looks like any normal black liner. The difference here is the applicator. It says its cone shaped and versatile depending on how much pressure you use to apply.
Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics – Mineralized Baked Eyeshadow in Graphite Frost – FULL SIZE – Value: $3.99
Very pretty. It’s not very pigmented, though my swatch is on unprimed skin ( as I alway do). I had to build up the swatch so you could see there was color against the bright lighting. It’s really pretty though and I can’t wait to see how it looks on my eyes. My drug store does carry this brand, but I haven’t purchased anything from them before. If you’re familiar with the brand, what do you recommend?
Verdict: In the month of March, COCOTIQUE had an estimated retail value of $25.50. It’s not an extreme bargain compared to the cost of the subscription, but at least it stands above it. I received 4 FULL SIZED products as promised, but I’m not overly thrilled that none of them were the “new to me” brands that I discovered this month. On the other hand, I fully appreciate the coupons codes COCOTIQUE provided this month for nearly every brand! That’s awesome!
Did you get the same box? What are your thoughts on COCOTIQUE this month?
