@MyEbonyBox review- 3-in-1

Hello there!

How are you doing? How was your day? Your week? How is work? Or school? Or uni? I have been doing a lot of work on myself recently and oh boy have I been slacking with my reviews. Sorry about that.

It’s started to feel like my blog was all about My Ebony Box and nothing else. I’m trying to re-think things through and see what has been going well and what I can do to improve it all.

@MyEbonyBox Review || July Edition

Hello all! Welcome to the month of September! 4 days down! We’ve already gone through 2/3rd of the year: C R A Z Y !

I am very grateful to God to have been able to see the lat 8 months.

As August had finished, I know it is time to have a look at the products that I received from MEB in July and check if I have used them or not. If I have yet to use them, I will tell you why. Let’s go!

@MyEbonyBox review || May’s Edition

Good morning! How are you doing? Happy new month!

Just wanted to say a warm welcome to the new followers/ subscribers and thank for the love and support to everyone (old and new)

And it is here! I let June finish without the review of May’s box… sorry! I can barely believe that we’ve gone through half of 2017… just like that! I will be doing a big reflection and review of my life goals and accomplishments of the past 6 months!


Anyway, let’s see what has been used in May’s box

Thursday Three… it’s all about that base, ’bout that base!

Good morning to you!

How is your day going? Earlier last week, I was thinking about how it has been a long time I’ve posted a Thursday Three so I’m here to rectify that. Here are three product I have been loving and enjoying for the past weeks:

@MyEbonyBox review || April’s Edition

@MyEbonyBox review || April’s Edition

Bonjour à tous! How you doing? I’m back with the review of April’s box from MEB.

The original post should show up at the very bottom of the page. If it is not the case, here is the link.

And now, leggo!

1- Choc Plus – Hot chocolate marshmallow and chocolate. RRP is said to be £2.

Now, the thing is I don’t drink nor eat chocolate as much as I used to but this is nice to try. I will probably be sharing with friends.

TRIED IT- I used it with hot milk and the hotter the quicker it melts. It is actually a very nice hot chocolate prep. I don’t actually like marshmallow but it would have been much better with more of it. Finally, I could bet money of the fact that I saw my local Aldi selling it! Check your own if you are interested in trying it

2- Cream of nature– Açai berry and keratin strengthening hair masque- RRP £1

I normally like the products from CON. This is a new fragrance. I will only be able to use it when I remove my braids. I will keep you posted in my review of this box, next month.

+ 2 samples (shampoo and conditioner). I don’t have a whole lot of hair but I already have a feeling that will not be enough- especially the conditioner.

NOT USED YET– they are in my massive hair sample pile that like to shop now and again. I will be giving it a go this weekend, when it is washday for me. I have used CON’s products before and I have been happy with them so there should be no reason for me not to like these ones.

3- Choctone postcard by Ramses Schweizer- RRP £1.50

Indeed, “my chocolate comes in all shades”. Love the message behind it! If you are familiar with the Pantone concept, you should understand this easily. Another piece to frame!!

NOT FRAMED YET but this is simply because I need to get some smaller frames from poundland. At the moment, it is in my bedside table. Still loving it though

4- EWA Nutrilicious face mask RRP £1 on the leaflet but £1.50 on the insta page. 

It’s a mix of clay , coconut powder and some other powder. It is to be mixed with water of milk. I will try both ways and review it.

NOT USED YET– but I will probably have by the time you read this post. Check my instagram to see what I say about it (@highnessempowershighness)

5- MEB– Handmade African bangle RRP £5

It’s MEB’s own brand. I love Ankara everything.I am VERY into that because they tend to be really unique.

WORE IT ROCKED IT! I had on a white shirt or it really stood out. Unfortunately, I’m gonna have to find a way to stop it from fraying!

6- MEB- Ebony noir candle. RRP £4

I’m not trying to be funny but this one of the nicest smells ever.  Spicy, woody and floral is EXACTLY what it smells like. I didn’t think I would like it but my mistake!! I had stopped burning candles a few months ago but I’m gonna get back to it because it is always nice.

USING IT– burning it as I am typing this post and you NEED to get one and try it. Personally I love it!!

7- Bea skincare– vitamin infused Konjac sponge set £RRP £22

According to the leaflet in the box, it’s the part 1 of it. Next month, we should receive prat 2. I want to believe it is the Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser from the same brand but I could be wrong.

I’ve had Konjac sponges before and usually enjoyed using them. We shall see if it makes any difference that it is vitamin infused!

NOT USED YET– I was waiting for the part 2- which arrived with this mont’s box and it is a cleanser. Hopefully I will be able to talk about it in the next review.


I can’t wait to get June’s box and also review May’s. I really am enjoying the boxes and products. I love to know that the products and companies are for strong and empowering black women – most if not all.

Support and empower for Highness surely Empowers Highness.

There is greatness in you, Highness.👸🏾👑✊🏿

Short review of @MyEbonyBox || March’s Edition

Bonjour à tous! How was your weekend? I’m back with the review of March’s box from MEB. I did the first one last month (find it here) and I thought, well why not doing this month’s.

Let’s go!

1- Afrocenchix || Soothe – Natural scalp oil RRP £3.99

USING IT! I posted this on the new Instagram for my blog (here) and as I said, it is very useful now that I have braids on. It does work on itchy scalp.

2- Brown coconut oil || Lip balm RRP £1.00

I HAVE NOT USED IT YET- that’s simply because I’m already using at least 3 lip balms. I have a bad habit of starting them without getting to finish them. I either end up losing them or keep them for too long and throw them away.

3- My Ebony Box || “Black Girl Magic” earrings RRP £8.00

4- Dorcascreates || “To An Amazing Super Woman!” card RRP £2.75

NOT USED YET- it is so pretty I kinda don’t want to give it away… is that selfish of me?

5- Dorcascreates || art coaster- Black hair magic v3 RRP £6.00

KINDA USING IT- the truth is I keep it at home where I don’t really use coasters. I just like to look at it, like the previous item.

6- Magic collection || satin sleep cap  RRP £3.99

USING IT USING IT AND USING IT. I actually left my old one in Canada, when I went last summer and since I came back I had been using headscarves until I received this. It is a very useful tool of black girls/ women with natural hair out there.

7- Chika’s || chickpea crisps RRP £1.79

ATE IT- I‘m pretty sure I finished it by the time I wrote the last full stop of the unboxing post…

8- Dorcascreates || postcard art print RRP £1.00

I’m ashamed to say that I have not framed not put it up yet. I definitely will!!


See a Queen, Salute a Queen!
