When the whole subscription box hype came about, I won’t lie I wasn’t very interested. The ones I had seen people unboxing didn’t really appeal to me. I saw a lot of products both me and my bank account would agree I couldn’t justify purchasing.

I am quite picky with what I put on my face, however, when it comes to my hair I am more inclined to try something new.

I started to see several subscription boxes both created by black women, and some specifically created for women of colour. That’s when I started to gain an interest in the subscription box hype.

These are the subscription box services I am aware of, so do share the ones I haven’t mentioned. I can’t wait to see what other themed subscription boxes launch in the future. I would be really interested to see some black men create subscription boxes for their needs as well.

I have a review for my first Curlee Box on my blog & first impressions of Good To Me Box on my Instagram.
