Unboxing the #RBsecretbox

Who doesn’t like surprises? I sure do. So when Retailbox releases a new secret box I go bananas.


Out of 25 boxes, I have probably purchased 15 of them. They are incredible value for money and have exposed me to products I never would have heard about and probably also high end products I would not have spent the money on. Now after testing them, there are some I definitely do and will repurchase. Products I’ve received include:

  •  Joico
  • Label M
  • Moroccanoil
  • Kevin Murphy
  • Schwarzkopf
  • La Tweez
  • Milkshake
  • Kardashian Beauty

Okay, so what is a secret box? Exactly that….A secret. These boxes started out being released so hush hush…you only knew about it after it sold out. I realised you couldn’t wait for them…you needed to literally start getting a feel for when you thought a box would be released. The cost of each box varies and with each release a short description of what type of products is given as a clue. Box no. 25 was R230 and the value of the products are R450. So let’s get to it….WHAT’S IN THE BOX?


Quick Grow Shampoo 250ml (R225 RSP)

Advanced Amino Shampoo This rich and creamy pink apple scented shampoo is packed with a propriety blend of advanced aminos are scientifically formulated to nourish the hair shaft and scalp with the precise balance of vitamins, minerals and amino’s.

Quick Grow Conditioner 250ml (R225 RSP)

Advanced Amino Conditioner This thick creamy conditioner with its fresh pink apple scent is scientifically formulated to create the ideal balance on your scalp and hair strands. This in turn ensures optimum condition, resulting in unsurpassed shine and luster. Having the correct moisture and mineral balance on the scalp is vital to hair growth and its overall growth performance. Our advanced amino blend is scientifically formulated to not only create the perfect overall condition on your scalp, but to nourish and replenish essential minerals, vitamins and aminos that might have been removed during shampooing. By conditioning regularly with our advanced amino conditioner, you will lock in the essential ingredients needed for soft, shiny and healthy hair.

So that’s what I got as part of the Secret Box. Then because I HATE paying delivery fees….and it was payday and you have that Rockafella complex, I decided to order some extras.

ghd Natural Bristle Brush 1 (28mm barrel) (R310 RSP)

I actually had my eye on the size 2 brush, but this one was on sale for R210, so I just got it instead as I did need a smaller blow dry brush that can get close to the roots…coloured hair and all…you know the struggle! I also own the size 3 brush and I love it, because the bristles don’t melt like your regular brushes do with the heat of the blow drier.

Cloud Nine Heat Protect Wand Glove (R65 RSP)

The Heat Proof Glove allows the user to feel the hair properly and allows the user to curl the hair right up to the tip. The Heat Proof Glove can be used on the left hand or right hands. The Cloud Nine Heat Proof Glove is ideal for use with all Cloud Nine styling wands.

We all know how awful it is when you just want to use your hand, but you end up burning the skin off your fingers. I haven’t tried this yet, but I’m hoping this will help for the finger burning situation.

All these products are available on Retail Box , except the Secret Box…surprise…it’s sold out 🙁 If you’re interested in getting your hands on Secret Box number 26, follow them on social media, or let me know below and I’ll share when it’s available if I’m on it fast enough 🙂
