      International Addresses: Magazine subscriptions offered at Amazon.com can only be shipped within the 50 United States, APO/FPO address and U.S. Protectorates. We are unable to process magazines to other destinations at this time. Please contact the magazine's publisher for further assistance.

      When to Expect Your First Issue: Magazine subscriptions ordered at Amazon.com are shipped to you by the magazine's publisher. The first issue of a weekly magazine should arrive within 4-6 weeks of your order. The first issue of a monthly magazine should arrive within 6-10 weeks, unless otherwise noted.

      Once you've placed an order at Amazon.com, it can take one to two weeks for your subscription to be received and scheduled by the publisher. Your subscription is then added to the publisher's next production cycle and shipped via standard mail. For example, if your monthly subscription was ordered and received by the publisher in November, and the December issue has already shipped, your order may be added to the January mailing. You can find out more information, including how to contact the publisher about your subscription, in Amazon's Magazine Subscription Manager.

      Renewing Your Subscription: If you are ordering as a renewal to the same name and address as the current subscription, the publisher will add the Amazon order to your current subscription. For example, if you have 5 issues left and you add 12 through Amazon, you will now have 17 issues left on your subscription. Please note that the expiration date in the Magazine Subscription Manager will not reflect if you were already on file with the publisher. We will work with the publisher to ensure that you still receive all of the issues left on your subscription.

      Publication Frequency: Magazines which show "irregular" availability are those which are not published according to a regular schedule. If you place an order for such a magazine, you will receive new issues as soon as they are available.

    • Control your subscription settings anytime using Amazon's Magazine Subscription Manager.
    • If you purchase the auto-renewing offer, your subscription will renew at the end of the current term. Before it renews, we will send you a reminder notice stating the term and rate then in effect. Cancel anytime.

    Amazon.com Review

    Essence magazine is a lifestyle publication for African American women of all ages, shapes, and cultures. If you've been looking for a periodical that addresses what black ladies need to know about fashion, beauty, relationships, and current events, a subscription to Essence will come in handy. It also features tips and tricks to help you deal with everyday issues, as well as a special section where real men ask their significant others to marry them.

    Essence magazine features interviews with movie and music celebrities that share their knowledge on how to empower yourself in order to reach your goals. It also contains articles about average black women who have become successful in their careers after starting almost from scratch. The heartwarming stories will give you the courage to push aside all of the negativity that you may face in your chosen field, while tips from experts on a variety of topics, such as job hunting and scholarships, will help with the practical side of your endeavors.

    Essence magazine will make you embrace fashion and beauty with passion, offering hints on hairstyles, makeup, and wardrobe choices that will complement your skin tone and body shape. The publication also discusses health issues that African American women face, including the symptoms of certain conditions and the questions you should be asking your doctor.

    A subscription to Essence magazine will give you the tools you need to raise your self-esteem, and the magazine makes a great gift for any young woman that needs a little boost in self-image too.
