March Curlkit :: Product Close Ups and details

Hi luvs,

Happy International Workers’ Day.

Today I wanted to give you guys a sneak peek of what was included in March’s Curlkit.

Before we get into it let me give you guys a little info on Curlkit. (For those who aren’t familiar with it)

What is CURLKIT?

Curlkit is a natural hair subscription service, which offers 6 to 8 product samples in a box each month for the price of $20 per month plus shipping if you are international.

Being that I live in Sweden, its very hard for me to find natural hair products geared towards women of color. I know I could start experimenting with products locally to see what works for my hair, but at this point in time I find it less time consuming on my part, to simply use a service like this which is already geared to naturals. It is much easier for me to weed out the products and if I really like a product I could simply order it from their site.

You can cancel the subscription at any point and if you don’t want the commitment you can always order individual boxes or products from their sites.

Now that being said the Shipping fees is killing me, these are the current shipping rates for international subscribers.

Shipping to Canada $19.95
UK and Europe  $23.95
Puerto Rico/Hawaii/Virgin Island  $5.70

 

So basically my Curlkit box costs me about $44 a month and that is steep! Especially knowing that those locally pay half of that. Now I understand that this is not Curlkit’s fault and I am glad that they even ship internationally (As far as I am aware they are the only Natural Hair Subscription service that ships oversees…if any of you know any others let me know in the comments below.)

 

Apart from the shipping fees I am loving this service, I’ve had a chance to get my hands on a couple of products that I only hear other naturals rave about on YouTube. Also, since they do send a couple of full sized bottles, I have products to last me for quite sometime which is great!

 

My first curlkit box was February, so far I have received 3 boxes and I have been pleased with all of them. No regrets or complains here. In this post I will focus on showcasing product details and close ups for the March box. (I will do a post on the February and April boxes as well so stay tuned for those. Also stay tuned for product reviews.)

 

Ok, on to the details….

    I don’t know if I’m ready to embrace my curls so much- love my flat iron- but this sounds like a great line. I always like hearing about natural products. Those shipping fees are killer!

      Hey Aimee, thanks for reading. I think most of these products can be used with any type of hair. Yup those shipping fees are high but if you happen to live in the US shipping is free.
      thanks for stopping by ♥,
