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.
