Cocotique “Kneipp Takeover” June 2019 Review

Cocotique May 2019 - Card Front Top

This month’s Cocotique box is a Kneipp takeover! Kneipp is a 125-year-old international company that brings sought-after body care and bath products, medicinal products, and nutritional supplements to countries throughout the world. This month’s Cocotique box offers the opportunity to try a range of Kneipp products.

The back of the Cocotique info card describes all the products included in this month’s box and provides information on where to purchase the products online. I appreciate when boxes make the extra effort to provide this information.

Kneipp Argan & Marula “Beauty Secret” Sugar Body Scrub, 7.76 oz – Retail Value $22.00

This gently exfoliating body scrub is made with argan and marula oil and promises to leave skin soft and radiant. Argan oil helps moisturize skin, is anti-aging, and improves skin elasticity while the marula oil helps build collagen.

I was initially concerned that this body scrub would be too oily but, once mixed, the texture was perfect. This scrub has staying power, is not too coarse, and left my skin feeling amazingly soft and hydrated. I must wear lotion daily because of how ashy my skin is but after using this scrub, wearing lotion the next day was optional!

This lux bath oil is made with argan and marula oils for a lavish bath experience. These oils are rich in antioxidants, fatty acids, and nutrients that are excellent for softening skin and improving skin elasticity. I’ve never used bath oils before, and I’ve been missing out! This oil made the bathwater feel like silk and left my skin soft and smooth.

Kneipp Mini Arnica “Joint & Muscle” Massage Oil, 0.67 oz – Listed Value $9.00 (Buy a full-size 3.38 fl oz for $23.00)

This nourishing and relaxing massage oil is made with arnica and ginger extracts, shea butter, sunflower oil, and moisturizing almond oil. It works to soothe achy muscles and joints leaving skin feeling renewed and refreshed.

It’s halfway through the year and I realized that I haven’t put much of a dent in my healthy weight loss goals for the year. So, I’ve been working double-time, watching what I eat, and exercising more frequently. My body has protested the extra work! This joint and muscle oil will be gone in no time. I love that it’s not only effective, but that is also doesn’t smell medicinal.

Perfect for post-workout recovery, this mineral-rich salt soak will relax and relieve muscle pain. It’s made with a blend of pine, rosemary, Siberian fir, and arnica essentials oils providing both a warming and cooling effect that does double duty soothing overworked joints and muscles. It also contains orange peels that boost your mood! I love that the packet contains a generous portion for one bath, the salt is thick and coarse, and it smells amazing.

Made with sandalwood fruit and grapeseed oils, this hydrating body oil is great for moisturizing, firming and smoothing skin. The vitamin E in grapeseed oil nourishes skin while the sandalwood oil strengthens and soothes. This is my favorite product in this month’s box! I’ve not used oil has left my skin so soft, smooth, and moisturized. The best part is, my skin looks healthy and hydrated and not at all greasy and shiny.

Kneipp “Relaxing Lavender” Body Wash, 2.53 oz – Buy a full-size 6.76 fl oz for $14.00

This soap-free and pH-balanced formula gently cleanses the skin leaving it soft and supple. It’s made with natural lavender oil that is gentle and has a relaxing impact on mind and body. This body wash creates a great lather for even the smallest amount of soap. I love the scent, but the smell is very strong. After one shower, half of my house smelled like a field of lavender!

Cocotique May 2019 - Bath Salt Relaxing Back

Kneipp “Relaxing Lavender” Mineral Bath Salt, 2.1 oz – Retail Value $4.00 (Buy a full-size 17.63 oz here for $20.00)

This pure mineral-rich thermal spring salt soak is made with a soothing blend of essential oils. The blend of lavender and camphor essential oils creates the most relaxing bath after a long stressful day. Bonus – the bath salt is also detoxing! I’m saving this soak for an extra stressful day but I did sneak-a-peek at the bath salt and try a little sample. It smells amazing – just like the lavender body wash.

The Verdict: Cocotique will occasionally do takeovers boxes and, in general, I’m not a fan. This box is an exception. I enjoyed using every product I tried in this month’s box. It’s the ultimate skin-care package! My skin has never felt so hydrated and smooth. Kneipp has perfected that art of body care.

The body oil is my favorite and the bath oil is a close second. I am also really enjoying the joint and muscle massage oil. I will note that most of the products, except for those that contain lavender, don’t have the most appealing smell. It’s hard to explain but the scent reminds me of being a kid and playing dress-up with my mom’s make-up and perfumes. None of the scents are overwhelming or unappealing, just a little perfume-like and dated. Still, the proof is in my skin! I will use every drop of these Kneipp products.

This Cocotique beauty box costs $25 with free shipping. I estimate the retail value to be about $71. This is lower than last month, has fewer items, only two full sizes, and one deluxe sample size product. All the rest were small samples which are not typical of Cocotique and its promise to include only full- and deluxe sample-size products. However, I would have traded in more full-sized products for the opportunity to try a wider range of Kneipp products. And, the value is still almost 3x the cost of the box and that’s a good value overall.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. If you sign up for a subscription, you have until the 23rd of the month to get the next month’s box. One-time boxes are usually available in the Cocotique shop for $25.00 here. This June box is currently available here for $25.00

Value Breakdown: At $25 for this box, here’s what you are paying approximately per item:

Alternatively, each of the 7 items in the box has an average cost of $3.57.

Hi, I’m Shatae; pronounced shhh-tay! I work in IT Healthcare, I’m married to my high school sweetheart and we have 2 cool kids. I am obsessed with black culture, lifestyle, travel and art made by and featuring women of color. I also love trendy plus-size fashion and accessories, eclectic and bohemian home décor and all things self-care, mental health and fitness. My favorite box is Izzy & Liv’s Brown Sugar Box; a monthly box offering tees, accessories and lifestyle products designed for black women. I also subscribe to TheSelfCareBox, FabFitFun, CauseBox and Merkaela. Being a wife and full-time working mom, subscription boxes are one of the few things that are just for me! They are fun, convenient, reasonably priced and full of surprises.

  1. I would have purchased this box though I am alabaster, alas not available. Still it’s nice to have the link to the company products in the box so I will save that for when I need some bath products. I am not into the colored bath bombs and such these kind of bath items are more me. Thanks for the review!

    • Thank you for the compliment, Cindy! I love all things bath products and these products are extra nice.

  2. I know this box says it is for ladies of color, but I would love this box as well! Just like single swag I think these boxes would suit people of any color. Nice curated box, would like to see more of boxes offering multiple products of the same brand and same line in boxes!

    • I have mixed reviews about “takeover” boxes but this was a nice one, Shari! I do think that non-WOC would enjoy these products as well. I also love that there are boxes specifically for WOC. I’ve gotten, for example, body shimmer in another box that was hardly visible on my skin or makeup too pale for my skin tone. Receiving products that are more likely to work well for my hair texture and skin tone is rewarding.

  3. Love this box and ordered. Thanks for the great review

    • Awesome Liz! I hope you enjoy the products as much as I am!

  4. Great review. This looks like a nice box to try.

    • Thanks, V! This is one of my fav boxes.

  5. I loved this box… I wasnt Alber to get the box for this month and missed out hopefully I will be able to get the box for september… I cant wait…

    • Toni, you might be able to find past boxes on sale. If so, this one is totally worth it!

  6. Ooo, lovely curated box, all of my favorite things. I may have to order. Thanks for the link to purchase this box and great review.

    • Hey Nich! Let me know if you decide to order and what your thoughts are. The bath salts are everything!
