I’ve always been a fan of Essence Magazine and the positive impact that they’ve had in the lives of African Americans and our success through highlighting issues relevant to our community and abroad, so at the start of 2016 when Essence launched its “Beauty Box” curated by their team of beauty experts I was too excited to subscribe. This month’s box focused on spring and provided products geared towards creating a “Fresh Start” to your everyday hair and makeup routine.
