CurlyTreatsBOX April 2016

Hi everyone!

So I received April’s CurlyTreatsBOX last week and wanted to share my thoughts with you all.

This is the 3rd box since its debut.  Check out my first curlytreatsbox.

The products included in this month’s box were all full size.

  • Design Essentials Natural Curl Cleanser (473ml / RRP £16.99)


Design Essentials Natural Curl Cleanser is a gentle cleansing sulfate free shampoo infused with botanicals to naturally moisturise the hair, plus Soy bean and Arnica to strengthen and soften naturally curly hair.


  • Palmer’s Manuka Flower Honey Leave-in Conditioner (250ml / RRP £4.99)


Palmer’s Manuka Flower Honey Leave-in Conditioner instantly detangles hair from root to tips with the addition of Amla oil, Cocoa & Shea Butter

  • Design Essentials Honey & Shea Edge Tamer (65.2g / RRP £8.99)


Design Essentials Natural Honey & Shea Edge Tamer is a moisturising, firmer-hold edge control gel designed for curly to coily hair that smoothly lays down the hairline.

Honey and Shea Butter add nourishment, brilliant shine and longer, more intense hold.



  • Sofnfree GroHealthy Milk Protein and Olive Oil Strengthening Creme (250g / RRP £5.70)


Don’t wait another day to protect your hair. This medley of natural ingredients conditions and moisturizes your hair instantly while boosting its resistance to any potential damage.


I have to say that nothing in this month’s box excited me.  Frankly, for me personally it has been money down the drain!

I wouldn’t normally purchase any of the brands featured in this box.

The main reason I signed up for this box is because I love the idea of having new hair products to try and experiment with.

The reason why I’m disappointed is because I’m very particular when it comes to ingredients, some people don’t mind what they put on their hair and skin.

Take for instance the Palmer’s leave-in conditioner, the packaging says no sulfates, no parabens, no phthalates and no dyes.   It also says with Manuka flower honey, amla oil, cocoa & shea butter, so at face value you expect it to be a natural product.  Yet the second ingredient is propylene glycol and they have 4 different silicones listed:

  • Dimethicone
  • Cyclopentasiloxane
  • Cyclohexasiloxane
  • Phenyl Trimethicone

I know there’s a huge debate regarding silicones in hair products.  I’m personally against it.

I’m holding out for the next box, if they don’t step it up I will have to cancel my subscription.

What do you think of this month’s box?  I would love to hear from you.

Thanks for reading.
