Ours By BlackJoy June 2017 Women of Color Subscription Box

OURS by Blackjoy is a monthly subscription box curated with beauty and lifestyle products geared towards women of color. From OURS by Blackjoy:

We work with companies from across the nation that make products with us in mind to give you an inclusive experience unlike any other. By the way, if you have a product you’d like to see in the box, let us know!

FYI: OURS By Blackjoy is taking a “hiatus”, so this is the last monthly box. They will be working on their subscription box service and in the meantime, they will launch OURS Cosmetics.  I’m not sure when the cosmetics line will be released but I assume they will send out an email to their subscribers.

OUR Hair:

Flower Bomb Hair Growth Oil, 8 fl oz. – Value $21.00

This multi-purpose oil is intended as a hair growth oil, hot oil treatment or as a body oil. It’s free of sulfates, parabens, glutens, mineral oil, silicones, DEA, paraffin, and petroleum. It works well as a body oil; my skin was left soft and it tackled my dry skin. I also used it on my hair, since my hair is in need of growth in certain areas.

Knotty Nectar Leave-In Conditioner – Value $9.50?

This lightweight, creamy, chocolate smelling leave-in conditioner is intended for curly hair to give it the moisture it needs. It aids in untangling knots, rids your hair of breakage and gives life to your dry limp curls.

Sweet Cream Daily Moisturizer – Value $12.00?

This too smells of chocolate and the description says it’s a creamy moisturizer. On the web page, it’s pictured as a creamy white substance. It arrived in green liquid form (it had melted from the intense heat). I put the product in my fridge to settle. This moisturizer is used from the root to the tip of the hair coating the hair evenly and focusing on the ends. This also works well with the Flower Bomb Hair Growth Oil, a few drops to lock in moisture after the moisturizer. I’m not sure why the substance differs from the web page but it seems to be the same product.

Dirty Curl Cleansing & Conditioning Clay – Value $12.00?

 “A non-lathering cleanser that gently removes dirt, flakes, and buildup while conditioning, softening, and restoring moisture to naturally curly hair. It lovingly cleans, separates tangles, defines curls, and soothes irritated scalps”.  This also has the aroma of chocolate and will make your curls pop and reduce frizz.

A coupon for 20% off your first order on Femme Noire’s website and a product card for Mandi Mane extensions is included in the box.

Verdict: OURS By Blackjoy has a value of $54.50, which is well over the cost of the box. This being the last box, I thought they would go out with a bang instead another collaboration with a hair care company. Don’t get me wrong, having a line of hair care products for OUR hair in WOC boxes is great. However, this being a lifestyle/beauty box for OUR hair, skin, health, and beauty, should reflect that. That being said, I’m sure this will appeal to some. It was fun reviewing this box and being introduced to the various products. OURS By Blackjoy subscription box service will be missed!

  1. Sadly, when subs “take a break” or “pause” services, the vast majority never come back. Often when they start out, subs will advertise themselves more broadly than reality can later match. The lack of product variety this month leans in that direction. Sort of like code for “we don’t have any of the other stuff to send, just one company sponsored brand at a time.” Reinventing would require removing the descriptors about being a lifestyle, makeup and beauty sub if single brand hair care is all they’ll be including. That’s a totally different concept that could be disappointing to some.
