Today I'm excited to share with you my review of the CurlBox Natural I recently received featuring Obia Naturals! If you're not already familiar with CurlBox, it is a monthly subscription box filled with goodies for curly hair (and sometimes body products). Every so often, they have special, non-subscription boxes that you can order to receive great products in a discounted bundle.
This particular box is the last of their CurlBox Natural series. Here's why they are ending this particular series (from their email):
"When curlBOX Natural launched 6 years ago, the idea was to feature under-the-radar brands without a large reach that featured all natural ingredients. Our mission has been accomplished and healthy, quality products are no longer an exception but the norm! Thanks to social media and word of mouth, previously small brands are creating demand to land on your favorite store shelves. For the final curlBOX Natural, we’re featuring a line that perfectly represents this shift—Obia Naturals (@obianaturals)."
It makes perfect sense to me as I've noticed the growing demand for such products over the years. I love this because I recall early on in my natural hair journey when it was hard to find (especially in stores) products that offered quality, all natural ingredients for curly and kinky hair. Now, products such as the ones I will be reviewing today are much easier to find. Below you will see what I received from Curlbox! *This is not a sponsored post. I purchased this Curlbox myself and this review is based on my own opinions based on my experience using these products.*
Throughout my natural hair journey, I’ve noticed how much my hair has thrived when using all natural products. I have tried several great brands over the years but I recently tried one new to me: Mielle Organics. I decided to try the Leave-in and Twisting Soufflé from their new Pomegranate & Honey line.
FabFitFun is a seasonal subscription box that combines fun items in beauty, fashion, fitness and wellness for its members four times a year. Per their website, "Each box is limited edition and contains $200+ in retail value. Boxes are shipped in March, June September and December." I received a smaller starter box from a friend in the summer (which I loved!) and just recently received the full sized Fall box from FabFitFun. First of all, I’m a sucker for pretty packaging so I was already pleased with the presentation. Also, this is not a sponsored post, this box was purchased by me personally.
Beaming, clear and unicorn-kissed skin is what we as women tend to dream of waking up to each morning. The reality is that environmental factors, sun exposure, our diets, etc can often impede that dream. However, quality, natural and affordable skin care can be hard to come by. Over the years more and more companies have emerged into this market. Plant-based nutritionist and author Kimberly Snyder highly recommends the Antioxidant Skin Boost from Sally B's Skin Yummies for radiant skin. This company is based right here in Atlanta, GA and they create cosmetic and skin care products using all natural, organic and non-toxic ingredients. Being that I love all natural products and supporting local businesses, I had to give it a try!
When I received my order, it came with three samples of a few of their other skin care products and a cute thank you note. I love little touches like that!
