Brown Sugar September 2018 “The Africa Edition“ Review
This month’s booklet is the “The Africa Edition.”
Izzy & Liv® “She is Africa” T-Shirt– Listed Value $28.00
Izzy & Liv t-shirts are a staple in their boxes, and their tees always reflect their theme. This month’s tee is gold, 100% ringspun cotton with the shape of Africa printed on the front with the word Africa on top and a woman’s face below it. I always look forward to their tees and wear them often. Their tees from previous boxes can be found here for purchase.
Printed Headwrap – Listed Value $27.00
I received a printed headwrap in teal; subscribers will receive this pattern or three other patterns. The headwrap is large enough to style a variety of ways. I am the worst when it comes to headwraps. My attempt to style the headwrap, pictured at the end of the review.
A Bold Motherland Magnet -Listed Value $5.00
This magnet with a motherland print and striking African colors will add boldness to my magnetic collection on my refrigerator.
Printed Pouch – Listed Value $22.00
This small pouch with a strap handle has an Ankara print, and the bottom is leather as indicated in the info booklet. The pouch can fit my iPhone, change purse, a few makeup essentials, a small notepad, and a pen. Subscribers will receive one of the four designs.
“Africa” Earrings – Listed Value $11.00
Continuing with the theme, I received a pair of Africa shaped earrings in gold and black. When I first saw the earings, they appeared to be cheap looking, but once on, they looked better. I’m wearing the earrings below.
“Black Girl Magic” Cuff – Listed Value $18.00
This black and gold snap cuff bracelet has “BGM” on the front meaning “Black Girl Magic.” The bracelet seems a little edgy for me, and I’m not into cuff bracelets, I may pass on to my niece. Subscribers will receive one of six colors.
Here I am wearing the headwrap and the earrings.
Verdict: This month’s box has a listed value of $111.00 – an incredible deal for $39.95 a month plus shipping. This month’s Brown Sugar Box was Africa inspired and while not my favorite box, I did enjoy this month’s info booklet with engaging articles about Africa. This month’s products are exclusive to Izzy & Liv, and most of the products are from China. I appreciate a subscription box that puts thought into their box curation and to have a theme with products that match it. The subscription price is on par with other lifestyle boxes, and you receive at least 6-7 items monthly.
