This is the info card that was included in the package, detailing the items in the box. This month’s theme is “Express Yourself With Color.”


LYF-now also included a color chart this month in their printed materials. It talks about what different colors mean and when to wear them. Fun!



Manicure Tools – Listed value $10

Ths is a pretty comprehensive little manicure set! I think this would be a good set for just about anyone to have.


Donut Worry Be Happy Nail Polish Kit – Listed value $10

This is a super cute little nail polish set! The colors are nice and vibrant, and it’s chemical free. If I had a teen daughter, that would be one of my top concerns when introducing her to the world of beauty products.


4-Phase Professional Nail Buffer – Listed value $6

It’s really handy that all four steps of nail buffing are printed on each side of this buffer! Otherwise I’m not sure I would even use it correctly.

Nail Applications – Listed value $6

The three sheets you can see in this photo are nail stickers / decals / wraps. They are cute and age-appropriate, I think.

Crystal Charms – Listed value $4

I like how small these nail charms are! The ones at my local nail salon are huge, and I hate feeling like I have “stuff” on my nails. These seem small enough to ignore, but big enough to add some sparkle.


Note Cards – Listed value $3

I love these note cards! So cute! I also think this is a much more important and interesting way to express yourself with color than painting your nails. I’m so glad they included these!


These extras were also included in this month’s package. The kids loved the taffy, of course!

Verdict: I think LYF-now generally does a good job of balancing age-appropriate beauty items with non-beauty related items, which is important for this age range. I think there is a lot of pressure on young women to be born fashionistas / make-up professionals, but the way beauty items are presented in this subscription has more of a “take care of yourself” feel to it. I also think everything in the box is appropriate for the teens and young women age range. The value this month totals almost $40, which is good for a $29 box, but I think they could do a little better. Overall, I think this would make a nice gift subscription for a special teen girl in your life.

What do you think of LYF-now?

  1. Cute box but a bit young for the demo. Also is that a typo on the info card? “Love Yourself Frist”?

  2. I agree with the other commenters. My 14 year old niece over quickly outgrew the box sub aimed at tweens and now prefers regular beauty boxes like BB5, Birchbox and Ipsy. I think she’d be insulted if I gave her something labeled “kid friendly.”

  3. I have to agree about the target market … my 7 year old would love this. I also think the price is a bit high for what you get.

  4. If the nail polish is free from chemicals what is it made from?

    • hahahahaha

  5. I agree with the other comments. My 8 year old would LOVE this. The teenagers I know would think it is lame!

  6. I agree, it’s a great concept..but…lol My daughter will be 14 this month and this definitely wouldn’t appeal to her. Cute stuff though.

  7. I would have absolutely loved this box around age 7-10. I was obsessed with makeup around those ages…my mom gave me all of her old makeup to play with and I thought it was the most fun form of self-expression. The funny thing is that I never once wanted to wear makeup to school, and now I’m in my mid-twenties and I don’t wear a stitch of makeup except for a swipe of lip gloss. So I think all kids are different in terms of how they respond to social pressures, but I think it’s something interesting to consider when giving a box like this to a young girl.

  8. I’m not sure I’m agree with where they set their target demographic. My 11 year old thought the items were young for her so I can imagine what my 15 year old would think. This looks more like a tween sub box to me.
