Box: Popsugar Must Have Limited Edition Summer 2016 Box
Cost: $100 one time fee + Free Shipping (taxes apply to CA).
What’s in the box: A special curation of cool, outdoor-chic essentials that’s perfect for summer. This box is one chic and stylish treat, perfect to give or keep for yourself.
Popsugar Limited Edition boxes are shipped in non-marked brown boxes. This way no one knows that you have a $100 box at your front doorstep ;)
I always get excited when it’s time for a Popsugar Limited Edition box. And once it arrives on my doorstep, the excitement doubles! You just know something great is inside.
You finally see the big and beautiful box inside. In the past, these limited edition boxes were black in color and this one is blue. That’s something new that I believe is part of their whole new packaging.
When you open the box, you see it’s wrapped with tissue paper and sealed with their logo sticker.
Each item inside the box are individually wrapped with tissue paper (and padding on some). This ensures minimal movement during shipping plus it also looks better. I give extra points to boxes who care how their packaging looks.
The Info Card:
The fold out info card that they include details the items inside the box as well as their values.
And here are the items in the Popsugar Must Have Limited Edition Summer 2016 Box:
I’m going crazy in love with all these items! So perfect for summer, it almost looks like a “What you need to bring to the beach” spread. So gorgeous, aaaahhhh!
Items in detail:
Hat Attack Twisted Stripe Beach Tote, Value $95
This tote is big! The material is like what you would find on a straw hat and it’s totally perfect for the beach. I also love the simply yet summery pattern.
There’s no lining inside as shown in the picture above. Maybe it’s better this way, perhaps sand that makes its way inside the bag will just make its way out because of that.
Corkcicle Canteen in White, Value $27.95
I love any type of liquid container that can keep its temperature for a long period of time. I’ve been a big fan of the S’Well bottles since it first came out years ago, and now I get to try out a new brand, yay!
This canteen bottle has a screw top and is made of stainless steel. It keeps drinks ice cold for 25 hours and hot for 12 hours. I love the color and holding this bottle was comfortable and non slippery as well. I can’t wait to try this out with some cold white wine ;)
Tofino Towel Co THE CHESTERMAN Round Beach Towel, Value $74.99
How gorgeous is this beach towel! I’ve never had a round towel before so I’m super happy I have one now, and such a pretty one plus it’s soft too. The round shape is great for when you’re at the beach (or pretty much anywhere) laying down and need to reposition yourself (to get that perfect tan) without having to move your towel everytime.
I put the bag and canteen on it so you can see how big this towel is!
This round towel is made of 100% cotton and has a diameter of 1500 mm which roughly converts to 5 feet.
LONDONTOWN Lakur Nail Polish in Royal Wedding, Value $16
I’m always up for some new nail polishes and love when I get introduced to new brands. I’ve honestly never heard of LONDONTOWN but they are a vegan and 9-free formula so it’s safe to use! All of their nail colors are infused with Florium Complex, a blend of natural botanical extracts and oils that will help to improve the appearance of dry, weak and brittle nails. That all sounds great to me!
Royal Wedding is a coral, pastel orange color (at least that’s how it looks on me). This color is just my type. Bright, peachy and summery.
The color looks brighter in person and suits my tanned skin well. It’s super creamy, I only had to apply 1 coat for the picture above, and the brush also applied the colors well (no streaks). A good all-around nail polish which I’m glad to add to my collection!
Herbivore Botanicals Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist, Value $32
Face mists are a must in my skincare stash. I use it a lot when I’m travelling 30,000 feet high in the air, or slightly above sea level tanning on the beach. Either way, misting my face from time to time not only refreshes my skin, it also calms me down for those stressful moments. And since this mist has a rose scent which I love, I’m sure I’ll be spritzing this all summer long!
Sugarfina Ice Cream Cones, Value $7.50
I LOVE Sugarfina! They’re like candies for grown ups! They have all kinds of yummy flavors that I’ve tried and am a big fan of their champagne gummy bears. I haven’t tried this one though so I’m super excited!
How cute are these! So cute that I’m giddy like a kid in a toy store. It was so hard to resist from opening this up before doing this review, I just wanted to take the picture and be done with it so I can finally gobble this all up!
My Thoughts: I LOVED this box! Everything was perfectly “summer” so it was a great curation and definitely spot on! It was like getting a luxury beach kit when you’re checking into a 5 star Malibu hotel. All the items and brands felt luxe to me and they were definitely quality. Exactly what one should expect from a Limited Edition box. I will totally be using everything in this box and with a total value of $253, it was absolutely worth the $100 cost!
