iBBeautiful Subscription Box Review – June 2014
iBBeautiful is a monthly subscription box for tween and teen girls to sample and discover products that inspire them to be their best natural, honest, and beautiful selves (and pass that inspiration along to others).
iBBeautiful kindly sent us this box to review.
The Subscription Box: iBBeautiful
The Cost: $18/month for a basic subscription or $28/month for a graphic tee subscription (same as the basic boxes, just with the addition of a graphic t-shirt), plus $1.95 shipping
The Products: 3-5 inspiring beauty, health, accessory, and lifestyle products for tween/teen girls (plus a graphic t-shirt each month with the graphic tee subscription).
Ships to: the continental US
Each box includes informational cards detailing the theme and products for the month. This month’s theme is “Make Your Own Sunshine.”
Green Summer Scarf – value: $22
I like this scarf a lot, but I think $22 is a high value for it – it’s not as soft as I’d expect other scarves in the same price point to be. However, I love the color and know that I will wear it! They recommend styling it with a classic white tee and jeans.
“Idea.” Notebook + Pen – $12
This is a cute notebook – they included to be an official “Bucket List Keeper,” as well as added a summer bucket list example card.
SBG Soap Peppermint Fluff Body Butter – size: 2 oz value: $8?
Ribbon Bow Anklet – $10
I’m honestly a little confused about how they got their $8 value on this 2 oz jar of Body Butter Lotion – on SunBasilGarden’s Etsy shop, a 4 oz jar is priced at $7. Based on the maker’s shop prices, the real value should be somewhere around $3.50. Regardless, this scent is actually really nice. It’s got peppermint, but also some floral scents, topped with marshmallow. It’s definitely a younger scent – perfect for their tween/teen target demographic!
“I Make My Own Sunshine” graphic tee – value: $10
Here’s a close-up of the design:
The Verdict: Even with my adjusted ($3.50) value for the body butter, the total estimated value for this month’s iBBeautiful box is about $57.50, and it costs $28. I’m definitely happy with that value. My favorite thing about this box is its vision to encourage and empower tween and teen girls to be confident and happy being exactly who they naturally are! It’s a great message, and I know I definitely would have loved a box like this when I was younger.
What do you think of the iBBeautiful box? Do you have a daughter or niece that you think would love it?
