  1. I too got a different bag. But I found this print and many other beautiful ones for sale at Conservingnow.com, just a heads up!

  2. I wish I’d known that all the bags would not be the same (nor the one pictured). I didn’t get the one pictured and I wanted that….

    • I also signed up for the subscription after the special offer was sold out after they said all new subscribers would receive the Sun and Fun kit (which I wrongly assumed was the one pictured.) I received a different print which was OK, but I *really* wanted the one pictured, which is called Sunkissed 3. I checked out the Envirosax website and didn’t see it so I called them to see if they were expecting any more of that print in stock and was told they do have a very limited number left. I was able to order one over the phone! In case anyone else is as crazy as I am about this print, she said it was OK to post her info. erin@bettabrands.com or 858-746-9281 to order directly.

      • I think that other number may not be correct. I was copying & pasting. This is their main number, with Erin’s extension: 855-638-2719 (ext 1005)

  3. I signed up for a subscription and got my first box today. I didn’t like the bag I got nearly as much as the one pictured or many of the others on the site. Still, it’s pretty cool how small it rolls up so I’m sure it will come in handy. I like the mix of products – everything will be useful, especially since I have at least three more trips this summer! I have two more months coming so I’ll be curious to see what comes next.

  4. I got mine today. Really disappointed my bag was not the one shown, that’s the only reason I signed up.

  5. I just went to the website to see if anything had changed and it looks like you can now sign up for the subscription.

    • I was browsing blogs and saw a review of the box…. they didn’t get the same bag that was shown. It was cute, but I like the other one a whole lot better.

      • I agree! I like the bag I got, but the one that was shown was way cuter.

        I was really impressed with the hand-written note and how everything was in a canvas-like drawstring bag.

        We need to have this subscription available as an option to post things on the swap site! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks for the heads-up! I ordered a 3 month sub, and on their FB page it says that “Sun and Fun will still ship out to all new June subscribers.”

      • I thought this statement meant that there would be a June box and the pre-ship box would also be sent along with the regular June box. This seemed too good to be true so I asked about it. This is the reply:

        No, Sun & Fun is our June bag and will ship out to all new subscribers. Those who already Preordered it and have now subscribed will get July’s bag. Thanks for asking.

        Just in case anyone else had the same (mistaken) impression I did.

  6. Just got my box this morning! That was so fast! Wish they were all delivered that fast.
    I got exactly what was pictured except my water bottle was pink! Which I’m happy about bc I love pink, if I got blue, I’m sure my son would have taken it.
    There was also a nice hand-written note in the box, which I thought was a really nice touch.
    I haven’t had a chance to try anything yet bc I’m at work, and not sure on values of stuff so I don’t know if its worth the $25 I think I paid.
    But overall, I’m impressed so far by the speed, hand-written note and everything arrived in a small cream drawstring bag.

    • What size was that adorable little bag they were showing? That’s what I liked the most.

      • I’d say its a little bigger than the normal size Target bag – I did a quick measurement… 19 x 17. it comes all rolled up and is a really soft silky material and really light

        • Ohhh, nice.. I do hope those are in their first sub box!

  7. I just got an email and tracking # saying my order has been shipped! Can’t wait to get it!

  8. I just got an email that my order is backordered. Anyone else?

    • I got an email about it being backordered several days ago, and I still have no updates.

      • I emailed them about the back order and was told that the back ordered items will ship 7 – 10 business days after order date.

  9. I’m interested in the sub especially if they stick with those type of brands. When does it go live?

    I recognize 3 of the brands and like the tote. I received the All Good Sunstick in Globe-In and FaithBox. I think the goddess garden is a good brand for those that are interested in natural/organic sunscreen. I received one in the EWG SunCare box and it was in Bliss Box. I think San Granola has been in Escape Monthly. I do remember that my husband liked it. I feel comfortable trying it out especially since they are using CrateJoy. I don’t mind trying out new subs that don’t use CrateJoy. It does make me feel better when I know they use CrateJoy because I recognize that platform.

    It doesn’t bother me that the one sunscreen is a “freebie sample” Pinch Me matches you to selections. Also, not everyone participates. I don’t because I don’t use social media. It’s a new box. I expect to see a freebie once in awhile. Now Sample Society on the other hand…they have the money and access to not have to offer free samples.

  10. I was lucky with this one. I started doing some research on the products and also went to the site and started the purchase. Before I finished the research, I went back to this thread, saw it was sold out and decided to attempt to complete my purchase. (It was already in my cart.) And, it worked.

  11. I messaged them and asked if this would be available again and they replied that they would be “still shipping them out this month when you purchase a subscription plan.” So it sounds like those of us who missed out may be able to get this with a sub purchase…

    • Oh, I hope so! I’m kicking myself for not going ahead the moment I saw the post!

    • This is the June sub box according to FB. So if you sign for a subscription you will get this as your first box, not an additional box. FYI

  12. For once, I didn’t wait too long and get the “sold out” notice. The bag is what did it for me; I’ll use everything shown, but the bag is a must have for me. πŸ™‚

    • Silly me hemmed and hawwed around cause I’d just added 2 new boxes and would have had to move money from hubby’s account.. by the time I decided, they were sold out. That bag is to die for!

  13. This is late coming to the table. I wish I could remember how I heard about it a week or two ago. I sweated about this because that bag is so cute but decided I really didn’t want to spend the money on the other stuff. Liz, thanks for putting your email down!

  14. This is a one time box right?

  15. sold out πŸ™

  16. I’m pretty sure I’ll subscribe when this comes out if it’s at this price point. I didn’t get the pre-order bag since I didn’t really *need* anything in it but I would have been quite happy to have gotten one in a subscription.

  17. I just clicked the link and it says it’s out of stock now, but that Goddess Garden sunscreen is a free sample. I don’t like getting free samples in sub boxes.

    • Where did it say that? I couldn’t find it.

      • It is in barebliss this month too.

      • Their site said the box is sold out, I got the Goddess Garden sunscreen in a PinchMe box last month, which is a free box of samples. And yes it was also in the Bare Bliss box this month. It’s like when Beauty Box 5 was sending out Dove body wash samples you could get for free and saying they were worth like $4.

        • Thanks for the response. I can never get anything from PinchMe! How do you get it to work?

          • Now I’m curious, what’s PinchMe?

  18. out of stock – bummer!

  19. I just tried to order and it says out of stock already!

  20. I love the bag! I ordered, but no confirmation email yet. Hope that’s okay?? Anyone know?

    • I ordered and got a “welcome” email and an order confirmation email. I hope yours went through!!

  21. Can anyone tell what is the item second from the left? Does it look like they’ve blocked out the brand on the lip balm to anyone else? Kind of odd. Also, on the site they mention a travel towel being included but it’s not shown.

    • The balm is All Good Unscented lip balm SPF20 and the towel is in the round container marked Go!

      • You have good eyes Helen! Thank you for your response. I had thought that a travel towel would be one of those small quick-drying microfiber towels. It appears that this company sells pre-moistened washcloth type towels. Do I have that correct?

  22. Got it! I’ve been needing a water bottle like that, and the tote bag is gorgeous! Everything else I can definitely use. It looks like it will be an eco-friendly and cruelty-free sub…hope it actually is!

  23. I definitely want that bag and water bottle!! Sunscreen always goes to my very pale daughter in law.

  24. This looks good to me.

  25. Just curious Liz, how do we let you know about new subscription boxes?

      • Thanks! Just sent you an email.
        I’ve got another one I ordered, but want to check it out before I send it in to you.

  26. I could definitely get on board with a sub like this. I travel often for work and even if I didn’t, what woman on the go doesn’t need helpful products designed for a busy life? I would definitely be interested in seeing a review.
