Carol's Daughter was launched in 1993 by Lisa Price in her Brooklyn, New York kitchen. Her homemade skin and hair care products became so popular with her loyal customers that she opened her first boutique in 1999. Her website quickly followed in 2000. As a pioneer of the resurgence in natural hair care, the brand made history by becoming a first on exhibit in the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Monoi Repairing Set $61
For less breakage and over-all stronger hair, the Monoi Repairing Set is a best-selling customer favorite. The set includes repairing sulfate-free shampoo, repairing conditioner, and repairing leave-in conditioner. The trio works wonders on over-processed, overheated, and over-stressed hair and contains no sulfates, petroleum, mineral oil, or artificial colors.
"I was having an issue with breakage due to coloring my hair for so long. I started using these products and the breakage is almost gone. I went from getting a comb full of hair to 2 or 3 hairs now. Love this and will keep using it." says Beth M in her online product review.
Face Butter Nourishing Cream $12
Hydrate and reveal younger-looking skin with Face Butter Nourishing Cream.

A fan favorite for more than 20 years!
"It’s very thick and creamy and I love how it moisturizes my dry skin. I would recommend buying this if you have dry skin." says Annonymous123 in their five star review.
Beija Flor Naturals
For uncomplicated organic products made with nourishing botanical ingredients, we can't get enough of skin and hair care brand Beija Flor Naturals. Stevonne Ratliff founded the company in 2009, after creating products to help with her own skin sensitivities and hypo- and hyper-pigmentation. Her line includes botanical skincare, body products, scalp treatments, and hair moisturizer—and they've been celebrated on the pages of Essence, Elle, and Vogue.
Amazon Antioxidant Treatment $24
Amazon Antioxidant Treatment is a soft buttery blend of cupacu, murumuru, passion fruit, and acai. It changes from solid to liquid on contact and absorbs into skin quickly, making it a wonderful everyday facial moisturizer or overnight treatment.
"I am absolutely addicted to this stuff! My skin feels amazing!" says Jill in her online review.
Licorice Root Elixir $22
Licorice Root for hair has been used for its medicinal power since the time of ancient Egypt in 3rd century B.C., and now Beija Flor Naturals has harnessed it into their Licorice Root Elixir to promote natural hair growth while soothing the scalp and combating dry, itchy skin.
"This product is awesome! I used it immediately after it arrived in the mail today, and it definitely works. I have a mild form of eczema at my hairline and scalp, and this really eases the tight, dry feeling, eases the flaking, and no more itchy scalp! Fast delivery, and great customer service as always...A++" says Geri in her five star review.
When musician and fashion mogul Rihanna couldn't find a makeup line that performed for all skin types and colors, she created her own: Fenty Beauty. Her revolutionary line includes formulas that compliment all skin types with a focus on universal shades that flatter all skin tones.

Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation $35
Winner of Allure's Reader's Choice in 2019, Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation is incredibly inclusive, offering 50 shades that give skin an instantly smooth, pore-diffused, shine-free finish. It easily builds to medium to full coverage and it's resistant to sweat and humidity, so it won't clog pores.
"I have been re-purchasing this foundation for well over a year now. Definitely never found anything better. Covers acne pigmentation without any effort. Foundation matches skin tone perfectly. Couldn’t praise this enough! I’m hooked on Fenty products in general. Money well spent, never disappointed!" says Liser.22 in her online review.
Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color $25
Equal parts class and sass, Stunna Lip Paint in Uncensored is one of Rihanna's faves. With its lip-defining precision wand and show-stopping, soft matte pigment, you can dress your pout in a universally flattering and long-lasting shade of red in just one stroke.
"When Fenty Beauty calls Uncensored 'the perfect universal red' there's no lie. I'm positive this color will look beautiful on every skin tone. The applicator allows for such a beautiful, almost air brushed looking application. A little goes a long way so the amount of product is awesome for the price. The formula is amazing and does not dry my lips out." says Mama Mia in her online review.
Launched by Niye Attang in 2016, Ace Beautè (pronounced as Ace Boo-te), started with false eyelashes but quickly branched out to offer a wide range of eyeshadows, makeup brushes, and false nails. Their motto is and has always been "Beauty for All" regardless of age, sex, skin color, religion or socioeconomic status—and every product on their site is cruelty-free.
