My Dappa Box Review by Darren & Nazia – May 2019

I am always on the lookout for new male grooming products to try, this has been brought about by Nazia’s love of all subscription boxes meaning we always have plenty of new products to try out. As always there is the risk that Nazia might take a look before me and help herself to any items she likes the look of. This month I have been sent a new box called My Dappa Box filled with more male grooming products for me to test out, and with the box being tailored to men it might mean Nazia won’t want to help herself to any of the items! So, I’d like to say a big thank you to James for sending this box for me to review.

If you missed my wife and I unboxing My Dappa Box live on Facebook, you can catch it here on the BoXession YouTube channel:

What I Thought

The items are packaged in a small recyclable cardboard box that has the MyDappaBox logo printed on the top and sides. Inside I found…

Mount Purious Med Daily Facial Oil – 50ml
Contains organic jojoba oil and rosehip oil. These 100% pure ingredients are known to deeply penetrate the skin and provide lasting moisturised skin throughout the day. These ingredients help to balance our natural oils to improve complexion. I tested this out over the week, it was easy to rub into the skin and did leave it moisturised throughout the whole day. By the end of the week it felt like it had improved my skin leaving it feeling soft to the touch and extremely hydrated.

Dear Barber Shaping Cream – 20ml
Dear barber shaping cream provides natural and flexible holdability. Dear barber shaping cream is all about providing the texture needed for truly great styles. The cream’s effective softening action gives sleek refinement to even the most coarse and thick hair. I used this to tame and shape my beard during the week and found a little went a long way and helped to control any stray hairs. The hold lasted all day and I could see it being used to style hair too if I had any!

Raw Supremo Aromo Foam – 50ml
Aroma foam shaving cream can be used with or without a shaving brush. Simply massage into the skin with warm water and shave in the direction of the hair growth. This is not an item I would use at the moment due to growing a beard and not shaving so I gave it to one of my friends to try out. He said it was easy to whip up into a thick lather and made for a smooth easy shave.

Raw Supremo Cleano Supremo – 30ml
Shaving oil, unfortunately another product I don’t have much opportunity to use at the moment with the beard. So again, I gave this to my friend to test out for me, he said it has a pleasant scent of coconut and lime. He tried it out shaving and found it helped to achieve a really close shave and left his skin feeling smooth and soft the rest of the day.

ZEOS QU3 Face Wash – 150ml
Modern urban living can be tough on your skin with pollutants, stress and junk food taking their toll. ZEOS QU3 Face Wash first line defence that helps regenerate your skin’s natural glow by cleansing deeply into the pores. Natural Vitamins E and B5 helps the skin to feel fresh, clean and invigorated. I have already used a number of ZEOS products in the past year and it has become a brand I know and love. This face wash was no exception as it left left my face feeling fresh and smooth and didn’t dry my skin out.

Verdict

I think the box offers good value for money with a number of different products for you to test out from brands you might not normally see which are all ethically sourced too! I know 2 of the products were not suitable for me to use in this month’s box but that’s the nature of subscription boxes but they will not go to waste as my friend was happy to test them out.
