There are so many ways for us to be able to purchase our beauty products, but as products for women of colour aren’t readily available everywhere and aren’t as fair in price as regular drugstore products, we look for other ways to get what we need. We’ve heard of beauty boxes before, but as there is now one that is specifically made for women of colour, there is now a chance for us to be able to discover new brands and test new products before we invest in them.

Glowwbox officially launched in September, and with the release of their first monthly subscription box, it is evident that it is well and truly worth subscribing. With full-size products coming in the box and a whole range of different brands and types of beauty products, you are able to test and get a true representation of new beauty items.


Mehron Velvet Primer – containing vitamins and Aloe Vera, this primer can be used as a base before applying makeup or alone on the skin, having the ability to heal and hydrate.

Akoma Shea Million – a raw and organic moisturiser that allows your skin to stay hydrated for longer without too much visible moisture or damage to the skin.

Root2Tip Hydration Serum – a hair serum formulated to help make hair more hydrated, avoiding dry and damaged hair, and helping with hair growth. While maintaining the balance between the serum and natural hair oils, it helps to nourish and condition hair.

Bomb Cosmetics Bath Creamer – a bath bomb filled with essential oils along with an exhilarating scent to make any bath simply amazing.

NYX Kiss Lip Gloss – with the help of mineral oils and vitamin E, this lip gloss from this famous beauty brand provides sheer coverage on the lips with a pop of neutral colour.

Glowwbox offers a subscription service for £15 a month (+P&P), so be sure to look out for what products they will have in their October box.
