It’s the ultimate gift- the gift that keeps giving. You can get one of boxes as gifts or subscribe for a little longer- you can cancel anytime! This is perfect because they get to trial lots of goodies and get introduced to new brands.
My ebony box– features lifestyle boxes targeting women of colour. Think cute mugs ft slick slogans, beauty items guaranteed for WOC and the odd food item here and there!
Prices- monthly box £20, 3, 6 or 12 month pre-paid plans also available (hint- you get a discount)
Beauty Cocoon Box– makeup or skincare monthly boxes. The uniqueness of BCB is that you get to choose which box to get or you could get both!

You got your outfits but its not complete without a beat face! These Black British Makeup brands have everything you need for that popping highlight or bold lip!
Asante Luxe Glow– so I discovered this brand on Instagram and I’m literally obsessed with them already. Think bronze goddess, I just bathed in sunlight and gold! They have a range of lux bronzing body oils, creams and powder highlighters (also used as eyeshadow). The glow they give looks serious and even better ingredients are organic. So a certain Mr right wants to take you out, sure to bathe your legs with their oils to shine his eyes well well lol. Currently waiting on a restock of their glow powders!
Brysocrema – I was invited to the press preview of this brand new makeup launch target WOC. They have lipsticks, blush and foundations for medium skintones.
Shea Butter Cottage– ay goodbye to getting your shea butter and cocoa butter from Amazon or Ebay where you are not sure of its origin! SBC stocks natural’s butters and oils, straight from the motherland, Ghana as well as other exotic butters around the world! If you want to try African Black Soap, purchase from here! The only way you can guarantee its authenticity
Afrocenchix – the guide wouldn’t be complete without touching on natural hair! Afrocenchix’s tried and tested products are made with natural organic ingredients guaranteed to soften and moisturise your hair and leave your scalp healthier. I absolutely love the Smooth Natural Hair Moisturiser and Seal Hair oil- I recommend them both to battle dry natural hair this season! P.S they are now available in Whole Foods!
