In a recent Amazon Live to celebrate Black History Month, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss shares her favorite black-owned beauty products, and we want everything.
Starting with Mother’s Shea by Eu’Genia Shea Butter ($20), Burruss says, “I love it. This is a really nice gift for someone, right? They have rose, and all three comes in a set. 15 percent of profits go toward the brand’s community in Ghana.” Her favorite scent is the Beautiful by E! Egyptian Musk Scented Body Oil ($7) because of its long-wearing powers. “I’m gonna be smelling good today,” she says.
“PiperWai Natural Deodorant ($13) is aluminum-free, paraben-free, vegan and for sensitive skin. I try not to wear regular deodorant, I try to use deodorant that is aluminum-free. I was excited to see that there was a black-owned company that makes an aluminum-free deodorant. I’m not a scientist, but some people say that aluminum in deodorant can cause breast cancer. You guys should go ahead and order one so we can all try it together!”
Also in the sustainable category, Burruss calls out Crafts Reusable Cotton Pads For Face ($11). “Basically, you just throw them in the washing machine because they’re reusable. I’m a makeup wearer and I cannot have messed up skin, so these right here are essential.”
