When I heard MzansiFro will be releasing a Noir Beauty Box which is specifically tailored for us black girls, I was thrilled! This meant hair products that work well for our hair and also make-up products that suit our skin tones. (I don’t know about you, but it is really not easy to find a foundation that is the perfect shade for my skin tone. I usually have to purchase two shades and mix them to get the right one 🙁 ).
The Noir Beauty Box is a monthly subscription service that you can register for at the MzansiFro website. Once you are registered they send you an email each month notifying you of all the products that will be available in the box for that month. Then it is up to you whether you would like to purchase that box for that month or not. The Noir Beauty Box retails for R230, plus R50 for delivery. The contents of the box change each month and they consist of hair & beauty related products.
So moving on to what I received in mine this month…
Let’s take a closer look…
1. Natural Moisture Twist & Shine Hair Butter (sample size)
I am looking forward to using this Twist and shine butter for twisting my locs. I am not a fan of beeswax, so I usually prefer to use products that work well for twisting two-strand twists. These type of products normally give me a great hold without causing too much build up on my locs. Another great plus is that all the ingredients used are all natural.
2. Matsimela Marula Nut Lip Butter (Full size)
By far one of my favourite products in the box! It smells ah-mazing and it moistures my lips soo well. My lips tend to get very dry, and even more so on in winter, so this is the perfect lip butter for my lips.
3. Jamaican Mango & Lime’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil (Full size)
I’ve never used this product before so I am really looking forward to trying it out; especially for my scalp (my scalp has become very dry lately). I have heard nothing but good reviews on the Black Castor Oil so I hope it will become a staple for me.
4. Yivani Mhlonyane Body butter (Full size)
I love how thick and creamy this body butter is and how it does a great job in nourishing my thirsty skin. However, I must say, the scent is a bit too harsh for me. It has a very strong herb-ally scent to it and I am someone who prefers floral and fruity smells when it comes to body products. If you are someone who doesn’t mind a strong herbally/earthy smell to their body butter, then I would definitely recommend this one for dry skin.
5. Design Essentials Natural Almond & Avocado Detangling Leave-in Conditioner (full size)
I tend to stay away from leave-in conditioners because I find that if I use too much conditioner on my locs it ultimately causes product build-up and it can be a pain to remove it! However, I will give this one a try and see how it works for me. It is quite creamy and smells devine, so that is already a plus for me.
I am quite happy so far with my purchase of The Noir Beauty Box and I am looking forward to purchasing more beauty boxes in the future!
