Essence Beauty Box Review- May 2016

May 25th, 2016 | Posted by fantabulessmedia in Essence


This month's beauty box from Essence was perfectly curated for me. The 5 products were all things that I use, and one product in particular made a splash with my entire family. If you are not familiar with the Essence Beauty box, it is curated for women of color and includes at least one product that is produced by a black owned business. 



This Poo-Pourri spray is simply AMAZING! You spritz a few pumps into the toilet water BEFORE you poop, and the scent of your poop is trapped unde the water and masked with essential oils. I know it sounds funny, but it does work. My boys tested it out several time and now when they head to the restroom, they grab the Poo-Pouri and let the rose scented spray get to work. This is my new favorite product and I'll be taking it on the road with me this summer.



Simple products are a staple in  my home and a part of my beauty routine. These wipes are great for an afternoon refresher on the go, taking off makeup, or just simply wiping your face clean. I really like that they are unscented. 



This facial cleanser from Equitance did not disappoint. It was easy to squeeze out of the tube and it produced a nice lather. CAUTION, it's a bit concentrated, so a dime size amount should cleanse your entire face. It cleansed my face of all dirt and oil, and left it really clean. Be sure to follow up with a moisturizer.



Ginger Yum Soy Massage Candle.   This soy candle is Ginger Mint scented and comes in a little tin that you can take on the road with you. The scent is light and invigorating. After burning for an hour, my candle still looked new. 



Pure Minerals Mascara- This black mascara went on smooth and is good for everyday wear. If you are looking for lash lengthening mascara or going for a dramatic look, then this is no the product for you. However if you wear a natural look or even minimal makeup like I do, then this will work for you.


Overall I was pleased with everything in the box this month and I will be ordering full size products of several items.  Can can get your own Essence Beauty box delivered to your door each month by going here  and using code: 8211-A6DB-62F6 .
