A few weeks ago I got a text from a family member asking my thoughts on a certain super popular beauty subscription box. I gave her my thoughts–and then because I’m a brown beauty advocate and brown girl enthusiast–promptly directed her to the websites of 3 beauty boxes that are owned by brown girls and tailor their products for women of color.
1. Cocotique – this beauty subscription box was created for women of color to “simplify the search and discovery process”. Hello! How many times have you bought those must have products just to find out that umm…nah. Not on this melanin. With popular partnerships with some of my favorite brands like Milani, Shea Moisture, Cover FX, and Black Radiance this box is a must have for brown girls. They also have a blog (because you know how I feel about brands and their blogs) featuring brown beauties and bloggers with their Cocobelles and Cocobloggers series. Absolutely love it! There’s still time to get the October box if you subscribe by September 23rd. Don’t miss out!
2. We Are Onyx – “all in one beauty destination for black women” yaaasss. Their mission is to educate and empower women of color to take charge of their own beauty. This monthly box has featured products from brands like Cantu, CremeofNature and Cargo cosmetics. You can subscribe now to get 5-7 products for black girls every month.
3. Curlbox Body – When I first found out that my mentor in my head Myleik was expanding her curlBox brand to bath and body products…listen the turn up was so real. I was already getting my life with the curlBox Natural and adding this new box to the mix was just like HERE! Take all my coins! But seriously, I purchased the first curlBox body and was so impressed. From mainstream faves like Carol’s Daughter, to up and coming brands like Harlem Soap (listen to me…the Spearmint and Orange soap…Just go get and thank me later). The last box from June 2015 is still on sale on the curlBox site so if you haven’t grabbed it I would go do that!
