The inaugural box theme is "Fan Favorites," and contained some of their best-selling goodies. I couldn't wait to dive in.If you're looking for great value and a simple way to experience the best of the Purgasm Shop brand, look no further than the Fetish Fix Box.
In terms of value, the truffles alone pretty much cost the same as the box itself ($22 for 6). The other products aren't full sized - which gives you just enough to experience what Purgasm Shop has to offer.
Let's break down the box contents:
Wild Cherry Curl Poppin' Gel & Hair Treatment Truffles
I've already done a full review on Purgasm Shop before, and the quality and performance of both products remains consistent. I do however have a new update for the Hair Truffles: I've found a new way to incorporate them into my regimen!
They are excellent as a stand-alone deep treatment, however, when I incorporated just one truffle into my conditioning henna treatment, my whole life changed. Normally when I henna, I use Jamila Body Art Quality Henna, conditioner (Trader Joe's Nourish Spa or Suave Professionals Almond and Shea Butter), unrefined coconut oil, and hot water. This time around, I decided to experiment and throw in a truffle.
Boy, am I glad I did. All of that amazing softening and conditioning that the Wild Cherry Treatment Hair Truffle did on its own significantly enhanced the results of my henna. My curls were moisturized, soft, lightweight, and full of body.
All of that was great, but here's the best part: I didn't need to condition my hair afterwards. Normally after a henna treatment, I have to deep condition my hair to ensure softness and manageability. Not this time - and I totally attribute it to the truffle. For more on that, click here.
As far as the Island Rum Lather and Honey Mud Bars are concerned, I found them to be on par with the Cocoa Yogurt bar I previously reviewed. Both bars are gentle, effective, and multi-use. The Island Rum Lather Bar smells amazing - and I can see why it is clearly a fan favorite. The added bonus of the turmeric infusion boosts the bar's already natural ingredient list by incorporating anti-aging, elasticity-improving, dandruff-fighting, and acne healing properties to the multi-use bar. I have psoriasis and not dandruff, so the bar did not help improve my scalp condition. It did however, effectively clean and impart shine to my hair.
Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Safflower Oil, Glycerine (kosher, of vegetable origin), Shea Butter (refined naturally crushed), Purified Water, Sodium Hydroxide (saponifying agent), Sorbitol (moisturizer), Sorbitan oleate (emulsifer), Honey, Soy bean protein (condition), and Titanium Dioxide (mineral colorant).
The Island Rum Bar contains turmeric, while the Honey Mud Bar is filled with rhassoul clay, yogurt, and yucca - which add qualities of purifying, conditioning, and strengthening to the hair and skin bar.
The Honey Mud Bar is definitely my favorite of the two - not only because it is infused with rhassoul, yucca, and yogurt, but because it was psoriasis-friendly.
I love smell-good stuff, but synthetic fragrances can agitate conditions like psoriasis. Of the two shampoo and skin bars, I found the honey mud bar to be more mild, which makes it a great option for gentle cleansing. The only down side to either bar is that they don't have tons of slip.
I personally prefer super slippy shampoo bars, but that shouldn't be an issue if you detangle thoroughly pre-shower. Either way it goes - super shiny and soft hair is on the menu after using the Honey Mud Bar.
Pink Blossom & Sugar Scrub
Although not haircare related, the Fetish Fix Box does include an amazing and exclusive skin exfoliator. I found myself fascinated by the scrub, because it looked very coarse and had flakes of what appeared to be flax seeds in it. I thought it would be good for my skin, but definitely to abrasive on my face. I was wrong!
Although it was an exfoliator, it felt incredibly soft. It didn't have that stiffness that can sometimes happen with other scrubs. This was definitely not your run-of-the-mill sugar scrub. Though I have not been able to get my hands on the full ingredient list, I can tell you that the ground flax seed, oats (I believe) and other natural exfoliators make a ton of difference.
The fragrance is lightly sweet and floral, without being overbearing. Overall, it is a great scrub, and scores different from others that I've tried! The exfoliating glove was also a nice touch, and especially right on time for Winter. I use it to target dry skin problem areas in the shower.
All in all, I really enjoyed the Fetish Fix Box. Although it is an already great value, I think what would help set this box apart is more full-sized products. Twenty five dollars is an incredibly reasonable price for a box full of goodies, but if the Pink Sugar Scrub or Wild Cherry Curl Poppin' Gel had been full sized, this box really would have been taken to the next level.
But I still maintain the value is excellent! As I said before, 6 truffles normally runs about $22 (they're made from incredibly high quality ingredients and well worth the money), so Purgasm Shop did a great job of featuring them in their first box. I can't wait to see what's in store for December!
