My First Curlbox Review (December 2015 Box)

Hello Lovelies,

I’m so happy to review my first Curl Box. I received this box in December and I wanted to make sure I was able to give the best review possible so I used most of the product a few times.  I was pleasantly surprised that two of the products in my box were full size products. Here is a rundown of the goodies.

 

Eden Body Works All Natural Curl Defining Creme

This curl creme was one was of the full size products I received in my box. It smells amazing!!! It is a medium hold curl creme made of Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, and Jojoba oil, and Vitamin E. The texture is smooth, lightweight, and creamy.   I loved how it kept my hair super soft and hydrated but not greasy.  I tried it alone, and I tried it with a drop of Deva Curl Ultra Defining Gel for a little extra hold.  It worked great both ways. If you have dry wavy or curly hair this is a must have.

Elucence Moisture Balancing Conditioner

This was the other full size product in my box. I had never tried this brand before so it was fun for me to discover a new brand.  That is one of the benefits of subscription box services.  The Moisture Balancing Conditioner can be used a traditional conditioner (apply after shampooing, then rinse out) or it can also be used a leave-in conditioner and de-tangler. I used it as a leave-in conditioner and a de-tangler.  It contains lots of curl friendly components such as Olive Oil, Peach Extract, and Coconut Oil.

In addition to these two MVP’s I received four deluxe sample sizes of five other products.

 

Paul Mitchell Marula Oil

This is my new favorite split end treatment. I found the really cool picture above online but the size I received was smaller.  Marula Oil comes from Marula Trees which are found in Southern Africa and Madagascar.  It contains high levels of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Omega-9, and Omega-6.  It’s incredibly nourishing and lightweight.   I started using a few drops daily and it made my hair super soft, finally allowing me to win the battle against dry ends, and it smells lovely.  I also mixed a couple drops with my curl creme for added hydration and shine.

Ouidad Flexible Hold Hairspray

I have been using Ouidad’s products on and off for years.  I love using hairsprays to keep my styles in check. I truly believe that hairspray and lip liner are essential beauty products.  This hairspray gives hold without making your curls feel dry or sticky. And having a travel size of such an awesome product is a major plus.

The Creme of Nature Perfect Edges

I have actually used this product before and I was very happy to receive it in my box so now I have a much needed travel size of it. It’s great for taming unruly edges around the hair line.

The last two products I received in my box were the Curl Keeper Total Control for Frizz and the Briogeo Curl Charisma Leave-In Defining Cream.   I did not have a chance to try out these two products because I was trying a lot of fun new products in December. So…..I will try these out over the next week and leave a short mini-review with my results on my Instagram (@sagebeautyblog).

If you have subscribed to Curl Box and love it, please leave a comment below. If you have used the Curl Keeper or the Curl Charisma Leave-In please leave a comment below on how it worked for you.
