I was so excited about this box when I first started to receive it a couple months ago; however, as the months have passed I have become a little more disappointed. I received my June I-Ella the List Starter Bag this weekend, and I must say I was expecting a little more. I think it may be that I-Ella the List set the bar so high in my first starter bag, that I expected the same caliber of products in all my Starter Bags from I-Ella each month.
This month's theme was Weekend in the Hamptons, specifically, my letter from I-Ella was titled "Lunch in Southampton" (What will you wear?) The cost of the I-Ella the List Starter Bag is $59 plus shipping cost each month.
I-Ella the List also has two other options: The Soho Bag ($129 plus shipping) and the St. Barth's Bag ($389 plus shipping) per month.
Here is my...
June I-Ella the List
Weekend in the Hamptons Starter Bag
While I really do like this necklace, I really am amazed at the pricing of the necklace. Do not get me wrong though, I know even the simplest piece of jewelry can be worth a lot. This is very pretty and dainty, and I know I will wear this.
I was looking over the Medi-Tan website and noticed they had sunless tan products, and while I do love getting tanning oil, it is not quite sunny enough Seattle, to be needing any tanning oil. However, as it gets sunnier I will most definitely be able to use the three samples I got, whether it be myself or for friends and family.
FARMHOUSE FRESH SAMPLES
I received two samples of the lotion and one sample of the oil from Farmhouse Fresh. I am excited to try these products out as they were on Oprah’s Favorite things list in years prior.
HERBAN ESSENTIALS TOWELETTES $10
This is the same product that you saw and should have seen in my last couple reviews of the I-Ella the List Starter Bag. That you can read HERE. And while I really do love these towelettes, I really would like to see something different.
I was super excited to receive this subscription bag/box this month, however, this month's I-Ella the List Starter Bag left me just wanting to see more. My very first starter bag cost the same, but included $205 worth of fantastic products, including a fabulous Sam & Lavi Dress, as seen below.
My next I-Ella the List Starter bag included $123 worth of wonderful products. And this month I-Ella the List Starter bag totaled $90 worth of products. I see a trend unfortunately.
Overall, I really hate to complain, as it seems , after researching, that what I received in my Starter Bag was worth the price I paid for I-Ella the List Starter Bag. Unfortunately though, I would never actually pay $59 for a little necklace and bath and body samples. And I would have loved to find some clothing instead. To be honest, that is why I keep signing up for I-Ella the List subscription. I find myself now debating on whether I should keep my subscription or not.
What do you think of this month’s I-Ella the List Starter Bag, the Soho Bag or the St. Barth's Bag? If you are interested in learning more about I-Ella the List monthly subscription or signing up, you can check out I-Ella's website HERE.
