Enclosed is an info card listing the contents of the box along with their prices, product websites, and discount codes.



Black Radiance True Complexion Custom Concealer, Full Size – Value $6.99

This crème duo in “darkest” is highly pigmented and can blend to my desired shade. It is water resistant, gluten-free, and cruelty-free. The concealer blended well into my skin and the shade was a perfect match for my skin tone. I was able to conceal a scar on my arm by blending the two tones together.


Black Radiance True Complexion Refining Skin Primer, Full Size – Value $5.99

This has a thick texture, in my opinion, and went on smoothly under my makeup and gave me a flawless finish. From Black Radiance, this primer claims to:

  • Minimizes shine
  • Smooth, and prep skin
  • Blends seamlessly into skin
  • Enhances natural glow when worn alone
  • Helps hold makeup and extends wear
  • Natural finish
  • Wear as an ideal base for foundation
  • Won’t clog pores
  • Non-ashy look


No. 7 Joy Scrub, 0.05 oz. Sample Size – Value $0.50

This 3-ingredient scrub contains oat straw, green tea, and lavender and can be used with water or a cleanser. I mixed the scrub with water and found it to be grainy. The application was messy with some of the product coming off my face, but I did get a fair amount massaged onto my skin. When I was done, my face felt dry and taut.


Revitalizing Eye Mask – Value $6.99

This eye mask can be placed in the freezer for no more than 10 minutes or the refrigerator for no more than 60 minutes. I applied the chilled eye mask to my eyes for 15 minutes and relaxed, which was just what my eyes needed after a long sleepless night.



Coconut Oil Shampoo with Avocado Oil & Argan Oil1 oz. sample – Value $0.65

This moisturizing shampoo contains coconut oil, argan oil, and avocado oil and added moisture back to my hair while removing dirt and excess oils.

Coconut Oil Conditioner with Avocado Oil & Argan Oil, 1 oz. sample – Value $0.65

This rich and nourishing conditioner also contains coconut oil, argan oil, and coconut oil, and moisturizes dry damaged hair without the added grease or weight.




Vanilla Bean- Coconut Oil Body Cream1.7 oz. sample – Value $1.11

This hydrating and nourishing cream has a somewhat thick consistency and is creamy in texture and has a faint vanilla scent. It did the trick and got my dry skin moisturized.



Dry Skin Cleansing Bar, 0.75 oz. – Value $6.36

This lathering cleansing bar is best for all types of dry skin. I lathered my upper chest area since it’s been dry this season and will continue using. I still have a few more uses left, so hopefully, I will notice a difference with the sample I received. A larger size would have been better, the soap was tiny. Also, the soap reminded me of licorice.

The following items are bonus items. Subscribers received three from the list on the product card. I received three bonus items, only the brand and product from You Be-Natural was listed on the card the other two items were not:



TKO (Tangle Knock Out) Leave-in/ Detangler, 8.5oz – Value $9.98

This creamy detangler intends to smooth my hair, get out knots and tangles with ease and some of the ingredients include, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, and Sunflower Seed Oil. I look forward to using prior to getting my hair re-braided!



Direct Leave-In Weightless Moisture Conditioner, 2 oz. – Value $1.48

This leave-in conditioner is intended to restore strength and luster to my hair, build body, moisture, and assist with detangling my hair for an easy comb out.



Lustre’s Pink Hair Lotion, 2oz – Value $1.25

I haven’t used this product in a long time. It works on color treated hair, chemically treated hair, weaves, braids, and is good for men and women. It conditioned and moisturized my hair and gave it shine and luster.

Verdict: Cocotique has a box value of $41.94, more than double the cost of the box. There is a good mix of body and hair products. I’m pleased with how they evenly distributed their beauty products for their subscribers. I would like to see more full-size products and skin and makeup brands for various skin tones and types, such as Black Radiance that was in this month’s box, but for being their first “Mega Beauty Box”, it was well done.

What do you think of this month’s Cocotique? What women of color boxes have you tried?

  1. I am not a woman of color but my friends who are often complain about feeling left out with the sub boxes available (especially with makeup & body/hair care items) so I am so grateful for your reviews on these awesome companies that I can share with them.

  2. Hi Nich,
    I’m curious as to how you applied the makeup primer. I’m really excited to have received it, but I’m absolutely clueless as to how to apply it since it’s a solid. I tried rubbing my fingers into it, but very little product came up. Maybe if I keep at it, it’ll melt the product, thus making it more spreadable. I was also thinking of using a concealer-type brush when I eventually get around to using it.

    I’m glad to see this box is being reviewed again on MSA! This was my last box in my annual subscription, and I may re-subscribe next year, but it’ll still be fun to see what future month’s bring. 🙂

    • Luna, I used a makeup brush, still playing around with it to get best results.
