Kites & Ivy is a subscription box that sends an assortment of products geared towards college women.
They send two care packages per semester, which include a back to school box, a holiday box, a spring break box, and a finals survival box. Items can range from bath & beauty products to fashion accessories, school supplies, snacks, and more.
Subscriptions are $32.99 for a single box, and less with the purchase of 2 semesters or more.
Let’s see what’s in the Kites & Ivy 2015 Finals Survival Box!
Everything was shipped in a smallish white box with a blue Kites & Ivy logo on top.
A peek inside!
The info card included a welcome note on the front and a list of all the items (with prices) on the back.
Rooted Beauty Raspberry Citrus Invigorating Facial Wipes ($5.99) – These raspberry citrus scented wipes are biodegradable, paraben-free, hypoallergenic, and gluten-free. They’re made with green coffee which delivers helpful antioxidants to your skin. A portion of the sales of this product goes to help women in need.
MagSoul KnotTwisted Headband ($10) – A handmade headband that’s made for “the girl who can’t wear headbands”. It can be adjusted to make it as tight or loose as you’d like.
Kenra Platinum Dry Shampoo ($22) – I really wish I could get into the dry shampoo craze, but I just can’t. Maybe it would be different if I were still in college? Anywhooo… This is a full sized dry shampoo powder that instantly revives and refreshes your hair by absorbing icky oils.
21 Drops Focus Essential Oil Blend (sample) – A little sample of an essential oil blend that promotes clarity and focus. It features rosemary, peppermint, and frankincense.
Salazon Chocolate Bar ($4) – An organic chocolate bar made with dark chocolate, sea salt, and caramel. The chocolate is not only organic, but also non-GMO and fair trade. I was crossing my fingers that this would be vegan, but alas, it was not.
Mason Jar Tumbler ($3.99) – This 24 ounce plastic mason jar tumbler comes with a matching straw and is BPA-free. The bright purple color is very pretty!
Nuun Energy Drink ($0.50) – I’ve tried a couple of these in the past, thanks to other subscription boxes. They’re little tablets that fizz in water, resulting in an instant flavored energy drink.
Kites & Ivy would have been a fun box to receive when I was in college for sure! It would have sure beaten waiting for the rare occasions that my mom would send me a care package. Plus, most of hers consisted mainly of Fruit Roll-Ups. (Sorry mom!) Anyway, this was a great box with ideal products for finals time (or anytime really).Browse more Women's Boxes in my Subscription Box Directory
Kites & Ivy 2015 Finals Survival Box Review
A nice mix of items that any college girl/woman would certainly appreciate. It was nice to see so many full sized items and I’d say they were all pretty practical. The value seemed good as well, since the Kenra alone was listed at $22.
