The Be Box: New Beauty Box for WOC

I was pleasantly surprised when I received my complimentary Be Box, the new beauty box based in the UK and designed with women of colour in mind. The Be Box launched in this month with it's debut box containing;

Mane Divas 3 Piece Sample Set

Ted Baker Butterfly Wings Body Wash 50ml

Activilong Repairing Oil Serum 100ml

Activilong Hibiscus Conditioning Hair Milk Sacghet

Heal Gel FaceGel Samples x2

Agese Oils Face Glow Sample

I have had my fair share of beauty boxes over the last 12 months, and Be Box is one of the better beauty boxes in regards to contents, the August box had a good mix of products, mainly for hair and skin. with one full sized products and fair sized samples (and I only got one sachet praise the lord!) The brands included are interesting, a few of which I haven't tried. The box also contained some pretty good discounts on full sized products. The box is the standard £10 (+£2.95)
I would like to have seen more make up samples for women of colour included in the box as that is what the market is really calling out for. Some of the products included in the box were not specific to women of colour. Be Box is really well executed box, the design and the website are really good and the brand is very interactive. 
If you want A box that is tailored to women of colour then this is a good box to try you can subscribe to for September box soon in the meantime check out the Be Box website here
