iBbeautiful Subscription Box Review – September 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).
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
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 “New Beginnings.”
Dotty Duck Lip Balm in Tutti Frutti – .053 oz, value: $5
Snifty Pencil – value: $1.50?
Beauty Junky Strawberry Gel Mask – .5 fl oz, value: $2.18?
“Lace-up” socks – value: $8?
Both the face mask and the pencil were listed as $3 on the info card, but from looking online, it doesn’t look like either are actually valued quite that high. Also, I think $8 is a really high estimate for one pair of kids’ socks. That being said, I think these items are cute, and a strawberry-scented mask is definitely something I would have been interested in when I was a pre-teen!
UPDATE (From Liz) – This purse should not have been included in the box. After reaching out to iBbeautiful they let us know that they included this in the box to show a different box variation and let us pick which to review. We never got that communication prior to reaching out – after the review was posted.
Anytime a box company asks to send us a box to review we explicitly state that we only will review the same box a paying customer would receive. Reviewing a “blogger box” is misleading and not helpful at all in showing you what you can expect from a subscription box. I’m sorry this review went up with incorrect information.
Multi-strand leather bracelet – value: $14
NYC Subway Line pouch – value: $22
I think these two items are nice quality, and I think it’s sweet that the bag was included as a reminder that “every new beginning starts at square 1” (from the info card). I couldn’t find this exact pouch online, but here’s the website of the brand listed on the tag.
“This is the Beginning” T-Shirt – value $22
UPDATE (From Liz) – Please disregard this value estimation given that the purse should not have been included in this box. (see above).
The total estimated value for this month’s iBBeautiful box is just under $75 with my adjusted values for the mask and pencil, 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?
