The Best Subscription Boxes for Women of Color ...

By Heather

Subscription boxes are so huge right now that there's practically a subscription box for everything – pets, clothes, toys, games, food – but beauty boxes are the most popular. The problem is that most beauty boxes aren't really inclusive. Cosmetics and hair products aren't very versatile or varied – at least, that used to be the case. The good news? There are tons of subscription boxes tailored to women of color. To get you started, here's a stellar sampling!

1 Essence Beauty Box

2 CurlKit
