Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Sunscreen Stick
The world is full of different shades of skin, but the rules for wearing sunscreen apply right across the globe. Don’t be fooled into thinking that just because you have dark skin, the sun won’t damage it. You may well not burn as easily as a fair skinned woman would, but the sun will still damage your skin and speed up the ageing process if you don’t use sunscreen.
Nubian Honey & Black Seed Body Wash
The combination of Arabian honey and black seed has a historical reference known as the “Seed of Blessing,” which was used in ancient Egypt to hydrate and coat strands of hair for a thicker look. Tons of antioxidants are also infused into this body wash to give your skin a silky smooth finish.
Carols Daughter Rhassoul Clay (Hair Products)
So many natural-haired girls shout praises for Carol’s Daughter, which is a sign that this stuff must live up to its reputation. Now everyone is dying over their first-ever clay-based collection. It’s made of a blend of Moroccan rhassoul clay, aloe juice, and cactus flower to help coat your coils with essential moisture.
Black Up Foundation & Contouring
As with any good makeup, you should be looking to compliment your natural complexion, not change it, or hide it. When you are choosing a foundation, be careful not to select one that is lighter than your natural skin colour, or you will make your skin look grey. Always test foundation, before you buy, on your forehead
Lip Fetish Cosmetics
These highly pigmented lipsticks (made to complement darker womens’ skin) are handmade in Fetish founder Quana Tribble’s kitchen in small batches to ensure the highest pigment quality and consistency. Just look at how bomb these brown-girl friendly shades are (!!!).
The Mane Choice Haircare Collection
This black-owned haircare company started in the kitchen of a registered nurse named Courtney Adeleye. It’s since grown to be a favorite for women looking to improve not only the appearance of their hair, but also its overall health.
Creme of Nature with Argan Oil from Morrocco Perfect Edges
Edge control is essential to a black girl’s haircare routine. You haven’t truly slayed your hair until you’ve taken your trusty toothbrush or your edge brush and laid down your edges with edge control. Creme of Nature’s Argan Oil is the OG of all edge control. Why? Because it’s non-flaky, long-lasting, and the argan oil gives your hair extra-shine.
