8 Black Owned Products I’m Loving
While many areas around the fight for equality seem out of our control, one thing we all have control over is where we spend our money. Before social media finding quality affordable black owned products was a struggle. You mostly relied on word of mouth from friends and if you had no black friends odds are you never even thought about who you were supporting when you made your purchases. But thankfully people like myself have a platform to help change this. As I’ve become an even more mindful shopper this year I plan to advocate for black businesses. There needs to be just as much energy in the blogging community to share black brands like we do USA made products, sustainable products and companies who treat their workers ethically because often times those lists overlook black owned businesses. So while we are STILL waiting for the Breonna Taylor’s killers to be held accountable one real way that you can continue to do to show support is by buying black owned products. Putting your money into black businesses supports black families, helps close the racial wealth gap and puts money back into local communities rather than a billionaire’s pocket. To help you, and myself, on this journey to redefining where quality products come from and brands you should know I’m sharing 8 black owned products that you’ll want to buy over and over again.
1. Blue Moon Body Scrub from Noire Beaute
Self care is at an all time high right now and one important part of self care is having healthy skin. The Blue Moon body scrub is packed with amazing ingredients like bamboo, avocado butter and sea salt. If you’ve been wanting to try a new body scrub this is definitely worth checking out!
2. Get the Glow Tea from Tealing & Co.
If you’ve been following me for a while then you know I’m an avid tea drinker. Tea has so many health benefits and the right brand tastes great too! What I love about Get the Glow is that it’s an herbal tea filled with tons of goodies like ginger and turmeric to make your skin look amazing. My favorite way to enjoy it is cold brewed with a hint of lemon and a healthy spoonful of honey!
3. Driss Tank from The Line By K
If you’ve been loving asymmetric tops like I have, check out my summer look here, then it’s a no brainer why the Driss Tank from the Line By K makes my list. You guys know I’m all about staple pieces with unique details so I love that it’s different from the standard one shoulder tops out there. Another plus is that it’s made right here in the US.
4. Lion Ring from Gypsy By Knature
My obsession with chunky gold jewelry is at an all time high. On top of loving oversized pieces I’ve been finding myself collecting animal themed rings too. Similar to biker gangs with a skull on each finger, I like the idea of having a zoo on my hand. Enter this beautiful lion ring from GBK. Affordable and tarnish free it’s the perfect addition to your jewelry collection.
5. Divine Zebra Multi-Ways Dress from Basically Clothing
As a slip dress convert I’ve been relying on a good slip dress these days to beat the heat. This zebra dress from Basically Clothing instantly caught my eye. I love that it ties both at the top and bottom which gives you so many different ways to wear it from mini to maxi, cowl to an asymmetric neck line you’ll never run out of new ways to rock this dress.
6. Papaya Bright Face Mask from Golde
Honestly who doesn’t love a good face mask? It’s an instant pick me up and a great way to show your skin some love. This papaya face mask from Golde is meant to help brighten your skin, evening out your skin tone. It’s perfect for helping remove dark spots and smells good too!
7. Button Up Belted Knit Dress from Greige
The mornings have been cooler this past few weekends reminding me that fall is right around the corner and this knit dress from Greige is the perfect transition peice. I love that you can wear it as a dress or you could also leave it unbuttoned to use it as a cardigan to layer over another outfit. Either way you’ll definitely look chic.
8. Black Girl Sunscreen from Target
Even as fall approaches sun screen is still a must. Don’t let the name fool you, black girl sunscreen works no matter the color of your skin! So if you’re running low be sure to stock up and support a black owned business! Also check out these other black owned products you can buy the next time you’re at Target!
