Detangling Conditioning Spray, 4.5 fl oz. - Value $21.38
This spray is a lightweight leave-in detangler that states it will condition, add volume, and leave my scalp healthy. I will save this for wash day.
Uplift Herbal Facial Steam - Listed Value $15.00
This intends to open and cleanse pores, detoxify and rejuvenate my skin, all the while giving me a spa-like experience in the comfort of my home. I poured 2 teaspoons of the herbal facial steam to a bowl, poured hot water in the bowl, covered my head with a towel and lowered my head over the bowl, allowing the steam and the aroma of the herbs to engulf my skin and senses. I have not partaken in a facial steam in a long time and I could feel my sinuses clearing up, after the five minutes under the bowl. The recommended time is ten minutes, but I could not handle the hot steam after five minutes, though I should have let it cool down a little before I covered my head. This opened my pores and left my skin hydrated. I enjoyed the experience. I took the value from the info card, the facial steam on the website came with other products with a higher price value.
Melting Lip Powder, full size! - Value $19.99
Wow, this went from powder to a somewhat moist lip stain that gave my lips a hint of berry color. I applied the powder to my lips and noticed how it melted onto my lips with a nice stain of color. The product felt somewhat cool when I applied to my lips and the stain went to a matte finish. This melting lip powder in red cherry also can be used as a cheek tint or eye shadow.
Smearproof Lipliner, full size! - Value $13.00
I paired this creamy lip liner in Burgundy 9 with the melting lip powder. I like how nicely the two blended together. I love the formula and it’s moisturizing as well. Also, this can be used all over my lips as a base color.
Here I am wearing the lip powder with the lip pencil.
Lollia Hand Cream, 0.33oz - Value $3.96
This creamy moisturizing hand cream tackled my dry hands and left them soft. I love the formula and texture but the scent is a heavy perfumed smell that is not pleasing to my nose.
Enclosed is a coupon for $10 off your next purchase of $50 or more at Lollia’s website.
Verdict: We Are Onyx Beauty Box has a value of $73.33, which is almost triple the cost of the box. That’s an incredible deal for a $25.00 a month with free shipping. This month’s box was well curated with items for my face, lips, (that paired together) hair, and hands. I appreciate a subscription box that evenly distributes beauty products in their boxes. 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 the products full size, this is the box for you!
