Reading Revolutionaries would love to be added. We are a new subscription box for tweens, teens and reluctant readers. We motivate the exploration of books and various genres and promote diversity in character and authors representation. Our boxes center marginalized voices.

We also give back to schools via bi-annual book donations.

Kelsey

The marshmallow of the month club is female owned, but not black owned. I think i’ll subscribe for my nephew and niece but wanted to point out the issue.

Vasel Glass Jr

Sad that none of these boxes are geared towards the black men. Women and kids only.

Karen

Okay, so when is MSA going to start to review any of these? I would like to suggested these boxes get reviewed

·MINTD Box
·The Lip Bar Fast Face
·Music Library Box
·On The Go Mom Box
·Wicked Flame

Leslie

Afrinomenon is a new BIPOC book centric boxed and black owned. It looks awesome and I am planning on subscribing. You can find it on Cratejoy and I believe the owner said she has a Facebook page and group. I get on FB only once or twice a year, so I haven’t checked that out. The book choices seem to lean towards Sci-fi, Fantasy, Afrofuturism, etc. This is exactly the book box I have been waiting for. I didn’t check the other comments, so if someone mentioned this already, I am sorry.

I think the first box is set for March and there are three different categories you can subscribe to. Check it out. I am not associated with this box at all, just super excited because this is what I love to read over everything else.

Kali

Love this article! The Queendom Beauty Box should for sure be on the list as they highlight Black and minority-owned beauty businesses and customers that the beauty industry and mainstream media often look over. Please consider adding them to this list! They are an amazing company that gives back with every box sold: https://www.thequeendombeautybus.com/products!

Jeanna aka SEASONEDBEAUTIES

I am so excited to see this list. I personally subscribe to and review several of these on my YT channel.

1. Tribe Beauty Box. I love this box. The products have always been top-notch. It is reasonably priced and can hold its own against some of the larger well know beauty subscription service. In addition, I have to add that their Customer service is amazing, timely and seeks to handle things in a fair and timely manner

2. The Beem Box. Another fantastic subscription service that can easily hold its own against the bigger [currently] more well-known competitors. Beem Box is very engaging with its subbies on social media and offers great incentives for referrals.

3. Curl Box. Caters to natural hair wearers. This is My favorite box of all!!!!! Everything about them is AMAZING. CurlBox ensures an amazing hair experience every month with every box. Most of the brands we want to try we can get in full sizes and at least 4-5 products from the line. From time to time they also add some extra items like hair jewelry, scarves, and even brushes/combs. AS LONG AS THERE IS A “CURL BOX “I WILL BE A SUBSCRIBER.

There is however one that I am so totally disappointed with and choose to not do business with. There was a discrepancy with a product that looked as if it were used as well as an unusable brush, [the bristles were glued together], And yes I did submit pictures. When I reached out to them they put the blame on me and refused to take any type of ownership. I do not want to put their name out there but I am adding this because they know who they are and I hope they get it together so their business can thrive.

I will be adding some new subscription services listed. I am excited to try them for me, my family, my channel, and subbies as well as introducing others to amazing companies and services they may not currently know or experience.

Kesia

How does one submit information to you about a new Black-owned subscription box?

Mallory @ MSA

Hi Kesia! Thanks for reaching out. We would love to hear more about your box! You can fill out this form for consideration: https://boxes.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/submit_a_brand

Grace

Thank you so much for this! I’m so excited to see Black-owned subscription boxes and I love the variety!

Mr.Mazingo

I’m amazed at all of the choices and saw a couple I may subscribe. Only issue is out of 55 not one for men. That’s sad. I hope there will be some added soon.

Joy

Wow! At a time i want to support more black owned businesses there goes MSA making it easy for me to identify. A heartfelt thank you for this list! Can’t wait to subscribe. Cocotique I see you!

Pilar

Wow! All of these look amazing! MSA needs to review more of these boxes.

Van

I would love to see reviews of ujamaa in the future !

Wendy

Marshmallows of the month has a gluten free option for the home made gram crackers it comes with! Love gourmet hand crafted marshmallows, so indulgent and good!

shakingmyhead

It would be great to see these boxes reviewed on MSA. They look great! I have not heard of most of these.

Jay

Agreed! I’d love to see a bunch of these reviewed!

Irene

I bought some things from Loved + Blessed because of reading this post, and the service was great! The box arrived quickly and the mini-posters, sticker, and necklace I got were high-quality. I also watched a free video course on Jamila’s website – “Miracles Do Happen” and it was quite good.

A few months ago I ordered from the “As Seen in Journeebox” section of Kevia’s website and got fast delivery of fine products. They’re starting a new subscription called JourneeWell that provides gloves, sanitizer, etc. I got an email today saying the website for JourneeWell had a glitch and wasn’t working on July 1 as planned, but should be up soon.

That Marshmallow of the Month box looks irresistable — must try it this fall!

LATOYA

Legit never heard of majority of these boxes! :(. I feel so sad about that. Now I’ve seen about 20 I want to subscribe to, how does a girl decide????

Kira

What a great list! I’m late to the party but would love to see Now in Books listed among these. Now in Books offers a monthly YA box or a quarterly Fiction box that features a new release paired with music.

tam

Thanks for this list.

Mimosa

To Rena,
Thank you for having the idea of creating this list! To Anna and Luna and other MSA-community friends, thank you for adding so many boxes to the early beginnings and development of this list. And to MSA, thank you – I love this article!

Rena

It makes me happy they did so!! Also MSA, would you consider adding Aroma Reveal Box and Copacetic Cosmetics? I’m happy you added Jersey Shore Cosmetics, they’re amazing! And I saw the suggestion for Marshmallow of the Month Club, yes please! Also, GlitzGlamBox, Ujamaa Box and Fortunately Inspired. And then Curated Self Care (as curated gift boxes, not recurring). Thank you for this!!

chris

Yes to Cloth & Paper! One of my favorite sub boxes of all time who is currently killing it. 👏

Leslie

Isn’t Journee box (Kevia) also black owned?

Leslie

I realized that should be “Black” owned. (Years of editing to the Associated Press style created a habit I need to break…)

MSA

Yes, thank you, Leslie – we just added Journee Box to this list!

Jordan

Please add Girl Gang Strong Subscription Box to the list they are fairly new and black female owned plus it’s founded by a teen!!

MSA

Thanks, Jordan! This subscription boxes looks awesome! We are actively working to include additional recommendations 🙂

Pamela

I think Tribe beauty should be right under cocotique. I subscribe to both and they are both amazing. I’m wondering who made this line up. Journeebox is one I’ve been interested in for a while but not mentioned here either. Disappointed
