After a decrease in beauty purchases among young consumers during the recession, analysts are beginning to see signs of improvement among both female tweens (8-12) and teens (13-17).Tweens spend an average of $9.80 per month on beauty products, while teens report an average monthly spend of $13.60 on beauty products. The overwhelming majority of tweens look to their parents and siblings to see what beauty products they are using, underscoring the importance of brands building strong emotional connections with consumers.
