Refinery29’s Black woman empowerment themed Unbothered has teamed with Birchbox to offer up two beauty kits putting Black women at the forefront.
The two limited-edition kits — Stay Radiant and It’s Your Crown — launched about a week ago and feature products (50% of them are Black-owned) chosen to address beauty priorities of more than 1500 Black women surveyed.
“We’re doing a lot of work internally to make meaningful changes from an inclusivity perspective, and improving our product assortment is a critical piece of that,” said Kima Cooper, Birchbox Director of Content and Community.” It’s deeply personal to us that we build a product offering that makes Black women feel seen. Creating these kits is one step of many to double down on our commitment to better serving them.”
The It’s Your Crown kit focuses on 4C hair and has such offerings as Briogeo Deep Conditioning Mask, Mielle Organics Rosemary Mint Scalp & Hair Strengthening Oil, Oyin Handmade What the Hemp Deep Conditioning Mask, Qhemet Biologics Amla & Olive Heavy Cream and TGIN Miracle Repairx Strengthening Shampoo.
The Stay Radiant Kit is all about glowing skin aimed and helping women address dark spots and uneven skin tone. Offerings include Alaffia Coconut Reishi Hand & Body Cream, Bolden Brightening Moisturizer SPF 30, Specific Beauty Dark Spot Correcting Pads and Sunday Riley Good Genes
Both boxes retail for $38 (though the actual value is $93 for the hair kit and $118 for the skin kit). Visit birchbox.com/unbothered for more deets on the boxes and to score a good beauty haul deal.
