More info about the We Are Onyx Beauty Box

If you missed my original post about the new We Are Onyx monthly beauty box subscription service, please click here for the details. This beauty box is $20 per month and it is specficially for Women of Color. Currently it focuses on haircare and skincare products.

Based on your feedback about this box, I asked for more info and received a prompt response. So I wanted to share some additional details with you that were not in my original post.

  • When you subscribe to this box, you select the products you want each month from the website. If you fail to make a selection, We Are Onyx will select the products for you, based on your beauty profile (which you fill out when you join).
  • You will receive four "travel-size samples" plus one extra "surprise sample."

We Are Onyx referred me to this article on Refinery 29 for more info. Here is an image of one of the sample boxes for reference:

I also asked if We Are Onyx has any plans to add cosmetics to their monthly offerings, and they said that yes, there are plans to broaden the range into makeup products.

I hope this answers all of the questions you asked in my original post, and if you have any additional questions, leave them here and I'll do my best to get answers for you!


  1. Thanks for this! The picture is especially helpful. Still don't think I'll commit to $20/month though.

  2. It is nice to see a company taking the time to put WOC at the heart of their business.

  3. If I had $20 a month I would do it. This is something I'm happy to hear about.
