Retail Box Secret Box 5

Retail Box have planned to release Secret Boxes in the three weeks leading up to Christmas. Secret Box 5 was the first such box and was suited to damaged hair needing a little care. The box retailed for R299 and was worth R700. Without the usual bells and whistles the box did seem a bit boring akin to an ordinary purchase. Our box contained two full sized products and one sample from the Joico Kpak range. The 300ml shampoo to repair damage and the 250ml intense hydrator retails for R250 and R390 respectively. We also received a 50ml sample of the reconstructor (150ml sells for R350). The box is worth R756 but given the 20% sale one could say it was 600. All three products have an unusual fruity scent. The shampoo doesn’t foam very well and overall while my hair felt soft it also felt greasy. My other purchases, which took advantage of the 20% off sale, were the GHD air diffuser for R200 and a Toy artic matte nail polish for R80.


Secret Box 3 was slow to sell out and Secret Box 4 and 5 didn’t sell out. This is probably due to either decreased demand, increased supply or increased prices. This is good for customers as everyone who wants to get a box can get their hands on one. Currently for the second Christmas box they have released not one, not two but three boxes!

Secret box 6, the accessories box for R199 is perfect for brunettes with medium to long hair who love to do up styles with something extra for your man. This box contained the Invisbobble with love styling box worth R470, 3D Men hair and body shampoo sample, 3D Men texture clay sample, Keratase shampoo sample and FHI Hot Sauce hair treatment sample.

Secret box 7, the volume box for R299 has the basics for those needing volume and care.

Secret box 8, the strength box for R299 will help repair damaged hair and provide a keratin fix.

If you haven’t picked up a box before, now might be a good time to do so!
