Better late then never 😀 finally getting around to using my July 2015 curlBOX Natural. This edition included a cleanser, a masque, conditioners and more from the all-natural EDEN Bodyworks Coconut Shea Collection.

IMG_0464My first impression of the box was excitement, I have wanted to try the EDEN Bodyworks line after receiving a sample packet at a natural hair meetup in Detroit. The sample packet left a good impression yet wanted to try out  more options for the full experience.

curlBox Natural is a quarterly subscription box made up of 90-100% natural ingredients. The box included five full size EDEN Bodyworks  products and a few sample products from Qhemet Biologics.

1. shampoo_1024x1024

Product Received: Coconut Shea Moisture Shampoo  ($8.99) Size: 8 oz 

Product Description: Sulfate free & mild cleanser that restores moisture to hair, a gentle cleanser for all hair types.

Review: After washing my hair felt clean and fresh, the smell is not my favorite. However will use again.  The slip was nice and felt good on my scalp.   

3. Coconut Shea Hair Masque _1024x1024

Product Received: Coconut Shea Hair Masque  ($8.99) Size: 16 oz

Product Description: Penetrates hair shaft to transform dry, brittle hair through an intensely moisturizing botanical blend of Coconut Oil and Shea Butter to deliver softer, stronger hair.

Review: This was my FAVORITE!!I Love the way natural curls look while the product was in my hair and work well for detangling.  I let the product sit on my hair for about 20 mins and used my Q-Redew to help lock in the moister. I will defiantly use this masque again and buy this product again. 

2. leave-in-conditioner_1024x1024


Product Received:  Coconut Shea Leave In Conditioner  ($8.99) Size: 8 oz 

Product Description: Daily conditioning treatment formulated with Coconut Oil, to penetrate and revitalize tresses. Blended with Shea butter to seal in moisture. Sulfate free formula is safe for color treated, chemically treated, curly, or straight hair. 

Review: This leave-in was okay my hair did feel moisturized and soft after applying however I prefer to use my SheaMoisture’s Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner, as my leave-in.

4. coconut-elixir-2_a50706c0-daf5-4602-ae17-a3f2764ce458_1024x1024

Product Received: Coconut Shea Styling Elixir  ($8.99) Size: 4 oz

Product Description: Prevent frizz with a daily application of this moisturizing conditioning serum made from an exotic blend of all natural ingredients. Leaves hair soft, sleek, and shiny!

Review: I used this as my styling cream while twisting my hair, it worked well. My hair felt good when I took out the twist also use on day two hair to refresh the twits. I think it works better on my dry hair. 

5. coconut-oil-main_1024x1024

Product Received: Coconut Shea Hair Oil ($8.99) Size: 4 oz

Product Description: Strengthens hair, prevent breakage, and add shine without oily buildup.

Review: I used this oil as a sealant in conjunction with the styling elixir and while taking out my twist to reduce frizz. I really like the oil. The smell is light and my hair had great shine.…if only it came with a spray option; that would be awesome.


Product Fragrance:

This smells like creamy coconut.  The smell didn’t linger on my hair however overall a pleasant sent.

Product Texture:

Thick and creamy. (I have ‘4c hair’ and prefer to use heavy products and this was just right for me!

Final thoughts

On a scale of 1 to 5, I give this product a 4 ,  because I wouldn’t necessary buy all of the items again. Overall I like the products they worked well and would you recommend giving it a try for yourself.  I would repurchase the Hair Masque and oil again,  my hair felt soft and moisturized.
