I’ve been introduced to some amazing brands on Target trips. Many of my favorites are black-owned. In the spirit of the times, I thought it would be cool to share some of my must-have items in a black business haul today. That they’re each conveniently available at Target is a plus.
What I’m wearing:
Sweatshirt | Faux leather leggings | Boots (also here)
Kendra Scott earrings | Kendra Scott bracelet | Kendra Scott ring/ring
Black Business Haul
First up, my sweatshirt is by Well Worn, one of the featured black businesses in Target’s Black Beyond Measure campaign. This sweater had me at the super soft fabric in a beautiful shade of brown. And, that graphic on the front of a woman’s silhouette? Icing on the cake! It’s such a winner that I ordered the men’s version of the sweatshirt for my husband. I’m wearing the sweatshirt in a size small. It has an oversized fit, so if you like that look, you can order your usual size without sizing up.
By now, you’re familiar with The Honey Pot, a black-owned, feminine care brand that’s powered by plants. I’ve never trusted a feminine wash until now. It’s the all-natural ingredients for me. Real talk, my favorite products are the sensitive skin feminine wash and the herb-infused pantyliners. I’ve also used and loved the wipes, but I think there was a formula change because I haven’t liked them as much as I did the very first batch I bought.
I don’t know why I’d never tried The Lip Bar before, but now that I have, I’m a huge fan. I’d been searching for a red lipliner to replace a discontinued fave from Mac. Y’all, I grabbed The Lip Bar Vegan Lip Liner in Straight Face on a whim, and it’s the best product ever! You know how it can difficult to apply lip products when your lips are waxy from a lip balm? That condition is not a challenge for Lip Bar products. They apply so smoothly and stay put.
Shea Moisture hair products are always an easy choice for my haircare. My current favorite collection is the Jamaican Black Castor Oil, but I often rotate new collections into the mix.
My barber uses Design Essentials hair products, and when he curls my hair, it’s flawless. So, I decided to try his go-to styler, the Design Essentials Almond & Avocado Curl Enhancing Mousse. It gives me a reliable finish every time and has officially earned a permanent place in my hair routine.
I was beyond thrilled to discover the Fresh Pawz line at Target. Nevis, my Havanese dog, is finally warming up to the idea of wearing clothes. These pieces are so edgy and cool. I had to buy the Adidog hoodie for my pup.
Bandages that match my skin tone? How could I not? Tru-Colour bandages have a permanent place in the emergency pouch in my everyday tote. Those beige bandages are not it.
I’m excited to shop more pieces in the Black Beyond Measure campaign. My purchases so far are hits.
