DAILY CONCEPTS Multi-Functional Soap Sponge Mother of Pearl, 1-pc - Retail Value $5.00


As someone who’s usually a skeptic when it comes to soap bars, the Daily Concepts Multi-Functional Soap Sponge Mother of Pearl truly took me by surprise. What sets this product apart is its ingenious loofah-soap combo, making it a standout in both functionality and convenience. Being a loyal enthusiast of the Daily Concepts brand itself, I’ve come to expect high-quality products, and this one does not disappoint. Despite my usual aversion to scented products, the clean laundry-like fragrance of this soap sponge is both delightful and subtle. The scent lingers just long enough to be enjoyable, without being overwhelming. The real game-changer here is how travel-friendly the soap sponge is. The unique hybrid product has earned a highly-coveted spot in my overnight bag, ready to roll for my next adventure. If you’re looking for a space-saving travel companion, this is a must-have.

FLEUR AND BEE One Lip Wonder Lip Treatment, 4.8 g - Retail Value $30.00


Lip treatments are a staple in my skincare routine, and this One Lip Wonder from Fleur and Bee is a true gem in my self-care arsenal. This is another one of my favorite brands. All of their products are both vegan and cruelty-free products, which is very important to me personally, and their contribution to the non-profit Days for Girls is another element that keeps me coming back. This particular lip treatment product is a standout. Its texture is delightful, reminiscent of petroleum jelly, but with a smoother, more luxurious feel. Upon application, there’s a hint of greasiness, but it’s fleeting. The product absorbs quickly, leaving my lips feeling incredibly nourished and hydrated. What I love most about this lip treatment is how seamlessly it fits into my daily routine, providing both comfort and care to my lips while supporting a brand that actively contributes to a cause that’s worth the support.

MEASURABLE DIFFERENCE Refresh and Glow Lavender Cleanser and Serum Duo Set, 15 ml (serum), 236 ml (cleanser) - Retail Value $20.00


Well, well, well, a duo set; how exciting! I was thrilled to see this Refresh and Glow Lavender Cleanser and Serum from Measurable Difference included in this month’s box. As a 30-year-old lady, I’m always on the lookout for products that cater to my skin’s evolving needs. This duo featuring a collagen and retinol-infused cleanser ticks all the right boxes. When first applying, I was a bit hesitant about the lavender scent, since I usually steer clear of scented products due to my skin’s sensitivity. But I have to say, the aroma is quite faint and doesn’t overpower, making the cleanser a joy to use. I was pleasantly surprised by the inclusion of a serum. It’s clear, gel-like consistency is a perfect match for my oily skin, providing hydration without the heaviness. The serum’s scent, like the cleanser’s, is mild and fades swiftly, which I appreciate. What I really love about this duo is how kind the products have been to my sensitive skin, leaving my face feeling wonderfully hydrated and plump. A solid option for anyone looking for effective but gentle skincare.

LEADERS Amazonian Acai Revitalizing Mask, 1-pc - Retail Value $6.00


I am a sheet mask fiend. There’s just something about a sheet mask that elevates my self-care experience, especially after a long day. This Amazonian Acai Revitalizing Mask from Leaders has a bio cellulose material, which is a game-changer, allowing me to go about my activities without it slipping or sliding off. Trust me; as someone who finds it hard to sit still even during a pampering session, a bio cellulose material is my new go-to. The mask is soaked in a revitalizing serum that leaves my skin feeling fresh and new. Plus, with the addition of anti-pollution properties, it’s an excellent choice after a long day at work.

RESHMA BEAUTY Rose Face Wash, 150 ml - Retail Value $9.99


Reshma Beauty, renowned for its quality skincare products, is another brand that I’ve come to enjoy over the years. I’ve previously had the pleasure of using their kale face wash, which I adored, so I had high expectations for this Rose Face Wash as well. However, as someone with an ultra-sensitive nose and sensitive skin, I have to say, I found the rose scent to be a bit too intense. I honestly found the fragrance to be potent even before removing the protective seal. This would be a fantastic addition for anyone who enjoys floral scents and has more resilient skin than mine. I’ll be passing this along to my roommate, whose skin is less affected by strong scents.

RESHMA BEAUTY Rose Face and Body Cream, 150 ml - Retail Value $14.99


This Rose Face and Body Cream from Reshma Beauty is a perfect complement to their face wash. It offers a rich and creamy texture that’s ideal for the colder months. As someone who appreciates a deeply moisturizing cream, the product’s thick consistency is a huge plus, leaving skin feeling luxuriously smooth and well-nourished. However, similar to the face wash, the rose scent proves to be a bit too much for my sensitive skin, leading to some irritation. Despite this, I can still appreciate the quality of this product. Due to the creamy texture, it does require some patience to fully absorb, but the result is undeniably soft and hydrated skin. Anyone seeking a rich, hydrating cream for the drier seasons should give this a try.


This was a great month for Cocotique! The highlight for me is Fleur and Bee’s lip treatment, which proved to be incredibly hydrating and soothing to my lips. Daily Concepts’ soap sponge is an excellent addition to my overnight bag, and it’s quite an innovative product that I’m thrilled to have. The cleanser and serum duo set from Measurable Difference was a pleasant surprise; the fragrance was not at all overpowering and didn’t affect my enjoyment of the products, both of which worked flawlessly with my oily skin. Leaders’ sheet mask is a wonderful addition to a night of self-care, especially after a long day, and it leaves behind happy, smooth, buoyant skin. Lastly, the face wash and body cream from Reshma Beauty… While I love the brand itself, and their products are always high-quality, this particular line has a rose scent that was too overpowering for me. Products that are too heavily scented cause irritation for my skin, so my roommate’s win is my loss. Overall, I thought this was an awesome month. The product selection was well varied, ranging from masks to moisturizers to cleansers and more, each bringing something unique to the table, and the value is there.
