Each box comes with an info card with a beautiful illustration on the front of the card and on the back of the card, the contents of the box and some of their prices. The theme for the month of July is “Passion Fruit”. The beautiful illustration on the front of the info card is by VG Waymer.
LaRitzy Cosmetics Lip Stain - Listed Value $24.00
The lip stain in deep orchid has a matte finish with lasting color. I topped with my favorite lip gloss for an added shine. It’s also paraben and cruelty-free. This color was not found on their website at the time of this review. It came with a lip pencil but my product box was empty. I reached out to customer service for a replacement. I’m waiting for a reply.
Illuminating Facial-Super Oil Serum, 1.2 fl oz. - Listed Value $30.00
This lightweight facial oil made from 100% essential oils works for all skin types to achieve that dewy look. The serum is lightweight and has a fruity smell. I’m not one to use facial oils, so this was a miss for me. “The serum has the super powers of helping calm excess sebum production on oily and acne-prone skin, yet tightening and hydrating all skin tones.” I was unable to find this particular product, so the value is the listed price from the info card.
Indian Coconut Nectar Body Butter, 1 fl oz. - Value $1.88
This creamy, moisturizing body lotion has a light coconut smell and is free of parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, peanut oil, and petrolatum. It absorbed well into my skin, tackling my dry areas and giving me softer skin.
Ziaja Enzyme Peel, 2.1 fl oz. - Value $10.99
This intends to peel off dead skin, smooth, soften, and brighten skin. I didn’t see any noticeable difference to my skin. I smoothed evenly over my face and left on for ten minutes. There was a slight tingling to my skin when I first applied but it quickly disappeared. I will continue to use and look forward to any benefits that may arise.
Verdict: We Are Onyx Box has a value of $66.87, minus the lip pencil that was missing. That’s an incredible deal for a $25.00 box with free shipping. We Are Onyx sends the best quality beauty products each month. So, if you’re looking for an inexpensive subscription box with the majority of products full size this is the box for you!
