    • Oh Ladies!

      I will most definitely be on the lookout for all the boxes you guys have suggested.
      Thanks again ladies! #Besos (kisses)
      ?

    • Yay! To me! ?

      • 🙂

  3. This is waaaay overpriced for “fashion” and “petite” items.

    • I was about to bite until I read your comment. Thank you for saving my wallet! 🙂

    • I agree!

    • Totally agree.

  4. it’s unfortunate – a lot of the beauty and women’s boxes do not have products for people with darker skin like myself. so it limits me on what i can get.
    and when i want to just take the leap and get one, i know about half or more of the products will be gifted to others, so it’s not worth it for me.

    • I feel the same with light skin too, half of any makeup I can’t use because it’s simply not for me and meant for darker skin tones. They do do a pretty good job trying to make boxes have variations.

      • what boxes? i can keep them on my radar and check them out.

        i used to get FabFitFun, Popsugar, and have tried the big and small Allure boxes – I’m a dark skinned, creamy chocolate women, with a luscious weave 🙂 and a lot of the products in those boxes didn’t have too much for me.
        i took some items and the rest that i couldn’t use, i took to my gym.
        i’d love to get boxes that help to enhance the beauty that is me! 🙂

        • I’m not seeing my first reply. Essence and Onyx are for WOC. There are others, maybe do a search on MSA. Also, there are at least two WOC bloggers

          • Also, la ritzy isn’t specific to WOC color but the only question they ask when subscribe is skin tone. Hope these help you!

        • There’s also Coctique & Godes Beauty.

        • I’m a black woman and love Essence!

        • This is the best comment I have personally read in like, forever.

      • C – I beg to differ. Except for a couple of boxes geared specifically to WOCs, most boxes contain makeup products, hair products and self-tanners/bronzers that are impossible to use (or completely unnecessary) with darker skin tones and ethnic hair types.

        • I understand Giana – like Popsugar and FabFitFun – those were my 1st exposure to this new subscription word – I love ordering them but most of the items weren’t geared to me or even a wide variety of women, now that I think about it. The items in their boxes were very specific. It’s fustrating at times because it doesnt leave me with many choices.
          But the ladies gave me some good boxes to try – and Im willing to give them a shot.

        • I agree that most boxes send cosmetics and hair care that is geared more towards white women, I think boxes should ask us our hair type and skin tone and send out the appropriate products ( even though birchbox asked in their profile, they never really followed it). If they sent more customized boxes I think we’d be happy as long as the value of the products was similar. I think boxes tend to send what’s trendy, even if it means alienating a lot of their subscribers. We should be able to opt out of certain trends if we know it won’t work for us. I am a pale white women, self tanners make me orange and bronzers don’t work for me either. I think the percentage of women who want those products is small, not sure why boxes keep sending those products.

        • Completely get your point. My comment is also valid because it is my experience, I didn’t disagree with Abigail. What we can all agree on is there is such a large variation of skin tones, skin issues and not all hair can be treated the same either. if the boxes don’t become more customizable most of us do get products we either can or cannot use. There will always be products people like don’t like to. I do think there needs to be MORE boxes geared to WOC.
