After living in shelters as a child, Heritage1933™ founder Latoya Thompson, created a social enterprise beauty company that not only celebrates natural beauty, but also serves women and children in their local community. Heritage1933™, named in honor of Latoya’s grandmother who was born in 1933, provides tools and products necessary to sustain hair care for women and children in local shelters. I’m happy to share her self-love movement, as well as my thoughts about the Heritage1933™ Beauty Box. To be clear, this is NOT a subscription box. This is a convenient and more cost-effective way for you to try some of Heritage1933’s™ best selling products.
So what comes in the box?
- Ms. Know It All: Whipped Hair & Body Moisturizing Butter
- Purity: Clay Mask
- O.M.G. Seal & Moisturizing Oil
- But First, Coffee: Exfoliating Coffee Scrub
The O.M.G Seal & Moisturizing Oil will truly have you saying, “OMG.” Sealing should be a non-negotiable step in every curly girl’s hair routine to ensure optimum moisture-retention. I love that this hair oil comes in a squeezable dropper bottle. It helps heavy-handed people like me waste less oil. This is a very light formula that is perfect for getting deep down in between those curly roots. The O.M.G Seal & Moisturizing Oil stimulates the scalp, which promotes hair growth, fights dandruff, reduces breakage and gives your hair a nice shine without being too greasy. I squeezed out a little of the oil on my hand in the photo above so you can get a better idea of the color and consistency.
- Multi-functional oil that can be used on face and body
- Massaging oil into your hair helps stimulates blood circulation and relaxes the body
- Promotes hair growth
- Seals in moisture and hydration
- Increases shine
- Decreases dandruff and dry scalp
- Helps smooth itchy scalp
I’ve mentioned this before on my Instagram, but for the past several years I have only used whipped butters to style my hair. I stay away from water-based products to avoid dryness and tangling. Because I prefer simpler beauty routines, I appreciate that Ms. Know It All can be used from head to toe. Ingredients like Shea, Mango Butter and Avocado oil all help to keep your hair and skin soft.
- Multi-functional butter that produces soft and fluffy curls and kinks
- Provides moisture
- Adds shine and luster
- Softens and seals in moisture
- Soothes scalp
- Conditions and softens hair

Since I use butters to style my hair, I do experience a lot of build-up. The Purity: Clay Mask is really effective in removing this excess build up and helps to reduce itchy scalp. The benefits of using Bentonite Clay on the hair are endless. This is especially true if you have fragile, 4C curls like me. This is a much more gentle method of cleansing the hair. Bentonite clay also helps define 4C curls, which typically have little to no definition. Of course, you can use the Purity: Clay Mask on your face to detoxify the skin and remove blackheads.
- Natural Multi-Vitamin
- Leaves skin feeling softer
- Unclogs and shrinks pores
The last item included in the box is the But First, Coffee: Exfoliating Coffee Scrub. Coffee scrubs are all the rave in the beauty industry for their ability to smooth and tighten the skin. With this scrub, you can reap all the benefits without all the added preservatives. With just 6 nourishing ingredients, your skin will be sure to thank you. I sit at a desk all day and have a bad habit of leaning on my elbows. This scrub helps prevent hyperpigmentation and keeps my elbows smooth. In comparison to most coffee scrubs that I have seen on the market, this has been one of the most affordable.
- Exfoliates the skin
- Removes dry and dead skin
- Reveals new healthy looking skin
- Stimulates blood flow
- Helps reduce the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks, psoriasis and eczema
- Tightens and brightens skin
