Akofa Designs Necklace – Listed Value $55.00
This handmade African print necklace is gorgeous. I love the mix of burgundy and gold amongst the green; this will pair well with a couple of pieces in my wardrobe. FYI when I put the necklace on it was stiff so I had to gently bend it. “Proceeds from each sale go to support women and girls of Togo and helps to pay for their vocational and college education”. Delali, the co-founder of Onyx Box has Togolese heritage and wanted to share this beautiful piece with us.
MELAN-In Skin Nourishing Serum + SPF 30, .5oz – Value $45.95
This all natural plant based 4-in-1 serum targets anti-aging, acne, UV protection, and skin evening. The serum is vegan, has no parabens, no sulfates, and no petrochemicals. It works well on all skin types. I can use this as a hydrating primer or mix with my foundation to keep my skin hydrated and glowing. I mixed the serum with my moisturizer at night and in the morning, I used the serum alone. My skin soaked it in and left it moisturized. Also, it states on the bottle to use within 90 days of purchase.
Quenching Coconut Curls Hair Butter, 6.6 oz. – Value $6.00?
This hair butter is meant to hydrate dry strands and tame frizz. It can work as a leave-in conditioner or deep moisturizing treatment in the shower.
Deep Conditioner – Honey and Hibiscus – Value $7.50?
This honey smelling deep conditioner intends to soften, condition, and detangle my hair.
Lipstick-Mented #5 – Value $16.50
I have been searching for a nude lipstick, I found one I liked that has a bit of shimmer to it but it wasn’t quite the shade I had in mind. This shade is what I have been searching for, the color is perfect. I love it! I believe this shade would work on a variety of darker skin tones.
From Mented Cosmetics:
Deeply moisturizing nude lip shade with the perfect blend of browns and pinks to enhance your multi-hued lips. Explore the full collection. All lipsticks are vegan, paraben-free, non-toxic, cruelty free, and proudly made in the USA.
About this Shade:
This shade bears our namesake because it represents everything we love about a nude lip: it’s a fully pigmented, multi-dimensional blend of brown, purple, and pink. Trust us – you won’t want to take this shade off.
Verdict: We Are Onyx Beauty Box has a value of $130.95, an incredible deal for a $25.00 box. This box never disappoints and what an exceptional value for this month. The necklace is gorgeous and will make a great statement piece going into summer. A mix of hair and skin products is also welcomed in beauty boxes and to finally have a lipstick shade to suit my skin tone is a win. I look forward to next month box.
