  1. Yes, I caved. I purchased this SE box. Ive got a good feeling about this one, especially since their target box was such a huge hit! Popsugar is one of those boxes that rarely disappoints me lol

  2. I’m with all of you who are waiting on spilers!!
    I have bought every Limited Edition box since the Summer box but I really need a spoiler before I drop 100 this time. If it sales out before hand then I’ll treat myself to a Oui Please box. I have a annual sub to Oui Please and I just find it to be such a lux treat, so after my box arrives If I love it enough I’ll put an extra 50 to the price of the SE PS box and get me another Oui please box. It’ll be more bang for my buck!

  3. The winter and target box were sooooo good, it’s making this hard to resist. I just bought the Oui please annual sub and said no more!!

    • Aly, lol, I just bought 1 year of Oui and 1 year of Little Lace Box, belong to Pop Sugar on a 6-month basis, but I caved and bought the Resort Box. I can’t help but buy every PSMH LE box! (I skipped the NM PS box though). Also belong to Glossy and Klover. After trying a TON of boxes over the past 6 months, I am a newbie, I have decided to stay with Oui, LLB and ALL of PSMHs. Okay, well I may continue on with Glossy and Klover as they are great too! That’s it though, hubby and my pocketbook are flipping out :)- Thanks again Liz for all you do!

  4. It’s cold outside! This box sounds wonderful. Still I am unsure if I will like the products. I looked back at the fall box and saw that I used nothing from that box. I’m going to hold off for now.

  5. I have been going back and forth all day. Really looking forward to my summer vacation, especially when I’m currently freezing all the time! We are expecting snow tonight, blah. So I finally caved and ordered one. Especially after February’s box was so fantastic. I really hope I won’t be disappointed. I am so addicted to your reviews Liz! Such a wonderful site, even if I am now addicted to boxes too! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you! I know what you mean about the weather. I think I’d buy any summer-themed box right about now πŸ˜‰

      • LOL – Same reason why I signed up for all of quarterlys travel boxes yesterday. – Whether I cancel or not might depend on the weather =)

  6. I ordered it when I saw the post on Facebook. Last years Resort was my first SE box. I must have been the only one to get a nice clutch. Mine didn’t have one defect. Plus the epicurian shower gel was to die for. I want more of it but no way will I spend 30.00 for one tube of shower gel. That is what is nice about these boxes. You get stuff that in regular circumstances you would never buy. Didn’t we get that bracelet stack too that sells for like $180.00?? (That I have not once wore!)

  7. I ordered this! It will be my first Special Edition box, and I’m excited. I missed out on the Target box, and I was disappointed. I do really, really enjoy getting my boxes each month!

    Personally, pulling the trigger without spoilers is part of the excitement! I’m just seriously hoping it doesn’t have any bronzer or tinted summery lotions– I’m super pale and it just doesn’t work for me.

    P.S. I wasn’t charged sales tax, so I imagine that it depends on where you live.

    • Yes tax is from where you live so for me $8
      I too am pale but I have to figure in a resort box there will be something to do with tanning/sunscreen. I figure I will just give to someone or exchange

      • oh and I don’t like spoilers …I really try to avoid them for a box I sub to……I like the surprise

        • Same here, I hate spoilers. I think part of the excitement of a subscription box is the element of surprise, so I avoid spoilers at all costs. They really do spoil the fun! lol

  8. i did it. i have been waiting for it – i just have a good feeling about it! hahaha I loved my resort box from 2 years ago and I hope I’ll love this one too!

  9. I just purchased it! I’m really excited! The last box sold out in 36 hours so I really didn’t want to take the chance and wait for a possible spoiler. Thank goodness I didn’t want or need anything in the SE Target box! I like that they told me that the box will arrive by March 31st. I hope we all love this box! ❀️

  10. Add me to the “yes” list !

  11. I just started my POPSUGAR subscription 2 days ago, after watching loads of unboxing videos. I had to order this box, and I also ordered one for my daughter-in-law!

    • Please be a good one or I give up on the SE boxes

  12. I gotta not. This will be the first LE box from PS I’ve missed in a year! But I think maybe if I put this money aside then maybe I can actually go to a resort some day…

    • Your comment made me LOL, Anna! πŸ˜€

      I thought the same thing. πŸ™‚

    • Haha! So true! πŸ˜‰

  13. I’ve been burned by too many disappointing limited edition boxes in the past… I’m going to need to see spoilers before I spring for this one

  14. I jumped on it right away and ordered one. I wasn’t all that thrilled with the Neiman Marcus box, but I was able to swap some of the items and gave everything else (except the mirror box) away as gifts for Xmas. Overall, it worked out fine.

  15. Based on last year’s resort box (Cuyana Turkish Towel?! LOVE the company & half the cost of the box right there!!) I gave in. Doesn’t hurt that I stopped receiving the monthly box and will be going on vacation the second week of April. Very, very excited! TAKE MY MONIES!

  16. I’m so curious to know what’s in the box, I need spoilers!! I bought the winter LE box and was kind of disappointed. I know most people loved it though. I didn’t love the clutch and then after I paid full price it went on sale or you got a free December box. I’ll wait around for spoilers, if it’s not still available, I wasn’t supposed to get it lol.

  17. Bought it right away! Super excited, my first LE box from Pop Sugar. For those waiting for a spoiler, you probably will miss the boat. They say the last resort box sold out in 36 hours.

    I’m also supposed to get the Fathom box which is also a $100 travel box. I thought of cancelling the Fathom one, but since it’s the first box, I’m hoping it will be a really great one. So for now, I’m keeping it.

    • Last year’s resort box definitely DID NOT sell out in 36 hours. I bought one right away because I thought it’d sell out super fast. It went on sale on Valentine’s Day and around two weeks later they released the first spoiler (nice turkish towel). It sold out a few days after that.

  18. Willpower to resist this box is at 0! I caved and ordered immediately. Can’t wait to see what’s in it! I did get charged sales tax but I was also charged sales tax on my 6 month subscription so thought they always do that.

  19. I thought the winter special edition box was really kind of great and enjoyed most all of it….i do feel like PS has overhauled it’s curation after a few months of horrors, so I’m inclined to bite the bullet. Here’s hoping!

  20. I caved too! I leave for Hawaii April 5th so I will be so bummed if I don’t get it in time! I’m hoping for some cute jewelry or a cover-up maybe.

  21. Just got it! So excited! So nervous! This is my 1st Limited Edition and the 1st time I’ve ever spent $100 on a box! About delivery, my receipt stated: Your Special Edition Resort box will SHOPby March 31.

  22. Do they usually put out a spoiler for the LE boxes? I really need a spoiler before I commit.

  23. I ordered it! I still don’t understand why so many people said they didn’t like the Fall LE box. I loved every single thing in that box.

  24. I bought it. I hope I don’t regret it. That $100 could be going toward my wedding reception/honeymoon. Hopefully it’s that good that I take all of the items on my honeymoon. I was happy with the Target/PS box, and they didn’t release spoilers for that one either. Here’s hoping!

  25. Well it didn’t take long for me to cave..I could definitely use some “resort” in my life right now considering the temperature and snow here in Buffalo.

  26. I really need to stop looking at this site so often. If I hadn’t looked, I wouldn’t have know the Resort box was on sale and I wouldn’t have caved and purchased it. It better be good!

  27. Did anyone else get charged sales tax? Not a big deal…but they’ve never charged me sales tax before…

    • I did, but I always do. Just keep hoping I will love this box. Since $100 could have easily been spent on other boxes

      • Agree!! This will be my first ever LE box, so I’m hoping I didn’t just waste my funds!

    • They did for me as well.. I live in MN, hmm weird. Why the change?

    • yup. they charged me tax. never have before. Im in RI. Boo.

    • They charged me sales tax too. I’ve ordered every PSMH special edition box since they’ve started doing them. First time I’ve ever been charged tax.

  28. Since they do drop spoilers, it would be nice if they released the first spoiler with the announcement of SE boxes going on sale, or any box for that matter.

  29. Personally, I’m not dropping $100 without any spoilers at all, especially considering PS’s inconsistency. I hope it’s good for everyone who orders. I am fully aware that it may sell out and I’ll lose my chance but still, I don’t trust PS….

    • I’m in the same boat! And if it doesn’t sell well, at least it will probably go on sale.

    • Yeah, I’m waiting for at least 1 spoiler also. If it sells out before then, I guess it wasn’t meant to be. I just can’t bring myself to spend $100 without any idea what’s in the box.

  30. I just bought my first limited edition box. I hope I don’t regret this. The target box was a good one…I hope that the value is there for me πŸ™‚

  31. I just ordered the box. I hope I don’t regret it. I looked at last years resort box, even though I did not like all the items in the box, the value was good, even if I like $100 in items in this box, I’ll be happy. At least I know the value will be there, unlike a lot of other boxes I’ve ordered that the value is not there. I’m still debating on whether I should keep my quarterly fathom subscription now that I got this box. I want it, yet I’m concerned the value will be to low for me to like it.

  32. I really want to pull the trigger but $100 for a box I have not seen yet…well I took that chance once with the last fall box and I hated it. :/ I’ll have to see some spoilers before I can jump into this one. If it sells out before then, well it just wasn’t meant to be for me. I’m willing to take the risk.

    • I can’t believe I couldn’t resist and ended up getting one anyways! Holy smokes.. that’s so not like me! I hope it’s a good one!

  33. Just ordered my first ever Special Edition box. Popsugar’s monthly boxes have improved lately and the Target collab seemed to be a hit.
    Oh well, if I don’t like anything, there’s always the swap site!

  34. Bit the bullet and ordered. Wanted to wait for a spoiler but also didn’t want to take the chance it would sell out. You never know with these things, one sells out and the next one doesn’t. People may still be on the Target LE box high so I didn’t want to wait. Hoping for spoilers on this and Nina soon!

  35. I’ve loved every resort special edition box I have ever ordered so I’m sure this will be great. Thanks for the heads up on the release.

  36. I live in Virginia and we just got a foot of snow plus it was single digits last night. I convinced myself I deserved this for surviving the cold. Excellent timing Popsugar. Now to plan a resort vacation πŸ™‚

  37. Well I bit…fear of loss and all that! It’s my first le box so I’m scared but based on the questions it seems like some clothing item, something for feet (socks?), jewelry, earrings, perfume, and makeup. Please PS don’t let me have wasted 100 hard earned bucks!

  38. So this box and the regular monthly box feature a travel theme. I can’t wait to see both boxes.

  39. Three things make me nervous- I don’t see a price value on this ad; ” special collaborations” means not the designer’s regular merchandise ( I’m shaking you rd resort junky bag) and no spoilers.

    I liked the winter special edition box, but waited until the blanket spoiler before buying. Missed the target box, the fit bit was the only thing I loved, but would rather pick my own color so not upset I missed it.

  40. Curious …. on what have the approximate values been on the limited edition boxes been? — Its always been easier for me to spend $50 without a spoiler, yet $100 is so hard to do. I’m also deciding on the Fathom box by quarterly which is $100 or skip them both…..and stick with my $50 boxes.

  41. Ordered this immediately, although I was dissappointed with the last resort box. PS this is your last resort box chance!

  42. I wish they would give full spoilers, I just don’t feel like I am missing out anymore.

  43. I did order– even with the Nieman Marcus cloud that still hangs over me… When I placed the order I noticed that there are 11 “Featured Brands”– taking this to mean at least 11 items??

    • I feel like no…all those are brands featured recently in other MH Boxes, so I thought they were just highlighting the types of luxury brands they might include. Seems kind of misleading on their part :/

    • All of the featured brands are from past boxes, do I think they are just showing what type of brands, most limited edition boxes will have 5-7 items

  44. As I dithered so much I missed the target one I loved the Dec ST so I’m jumping on this
    Liz do you ever sleep!!

  45. I ordered it. But, with great trepidation. The last resort box did not thrill me at all. I still can’t unload that RB of McD clutch on anyone to save my life! πŸ™‚

    The Summer SE and Fall SE and Neiman Marcus boxes last year were also very disappointing. So, I’m really hesitant on this one. But, I’m hoping maybe Popsugar is getting their act together. I’m going to give them one more chance with the Resort SE. If this box stinks, I’m never going to order an SE again without seeing full spoilers.

    • Brandy,
      You are too funny! I can always use a giggle at 12:45 in the morning. πŸ˜‰
      But, I totally agree with you.

      And yes, Popsugar, you have been warned!!!

      • Thanks Kari S!

        Weird thing on my PS Resort order. This time they charged me sales tax. So, my order was $108.40. They’ve never charged me tax before.

    • I use that clutch as my makeup bag! It’s great to keep your lipgloss/hand lotions/ comb/any other little items in! Just a thought.

      Man I really want this box, but I’ve been super good about saving money lately so I am torn. πŸ™‚

  46. I had to get it! Popsugar rarely disappoints with limited edition boxes. Can’t wait to see what’s in this box!

  47. I pulled the trigger! First special edition box for me. Excited! I hope the value is the same as the Limited Edition Resort Box.

  48. Based on the Target box and the value I want this so bad!!!

  49. Gosh..I want this box…but I’m really hesitant to pull the trigger for $100 without any spolier. I guess if it sells out super fast, then I’m not meant to have it.

  50. Without knowing what’s in it, I don’t want to spend $100 on it.
