  1. Great review, but I don’t see how this box is worth it. Each month features the SAME beauty supply store brands and doesn’t stray far from haircare. Maybe I’m looking at it wrong, but I don’t see the overall value in it.
    The sponge you can find in any dollar store.

    • Don’t get me wrong. I will buy anything to support any MWBE and the owner of Cocotique was featured on Queen Boss recently.

    • I noticed the heavier focus on haircare recently too. In general, this box was always worth it to me, but I’ll admit this month’s box did seem a little sample heavy, in terms of smaller samples than they usually send. Usually, they do have a pretty good mix of beauty products though.

      I just started a temporary hiatus from beauty boxes, but since last year, I’ve subbed to all of the mainstream beauty boxes, along to a lot of obscure beauty boxes, and as unexpected as this sounds, I’ve received quite a few products from Cocotique at least one or two months before other beauty boxes started to feature them, so I’ve always felt that Cocotique was just slightly ahead of a couple of beauty box trends.
