Rachel Zoe Box of Style Summer 2015 Subscription Box Review
The Rachel Zoe Box of Style from The Zoe Report is a new subscription box from Rachel Zoe. I am a huge fan and love her taste, so I think this may be my favorite subscription box launch of the year so far!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The packaging on this box is fabulous – it definitely feels like you are unwrapping a luxe gift!

The box comes with an info booklet with Rachel’s styling tips, and a letter from her introducing the box. This season’s theme is all about the beach!
Each brand also included a coupon code for Box of Style subscribers.
This was the hero item that was spoiled in advance for the box. (I love that they share the highest-value item in advance). I don’t own any white purses, so I was looking forward to this one!
It’s made with a sturdy white leather (with detachable crossbody strap), so you could use it as a clutch too. The size is pretty perfect for a grab and go summer purse. It has enough room for my wallet, phone, hand sanitizer, lip gloss, etc. It doesn’t have any interior pockets though, so I’ll probably use a small cosmetic bag to keep my lip gloss and makeup together.
It also comes with a protective storage bag. I really like this purse. It’s a classic shape with classic colors, and it still feels very current.
Mara Hoffman Sarong – Value $98
This sarong was designed exclusively for the Summer Box of Style! This might be my favorite item in the box. I’ve always loved Mara Hoffman prints, but I never owned any of her pieces until now!
The fabric is a lightweight wrap, and the colors are so vibrant! With the rainy weather we’ve been having in Pittsburgh, I don’t think I’ll be using it as a sarong any time soon, but it works great as a scarf. (Rachel also recommends trying it as a head scarf or as a halter dress).
O.R.G. Skincare Mineral Peel Face – Value $44
This brand is completely new to me – and I’m already impressed with the product packaging!
This product is designed to exfoliate your skin in less than a minute. You spray it on, let it sit for 3-5 seconds, then use a washcloth to gently exfoliate, and then rinse off.
I love that this is a super quick use skincare product! The natural scent is fabulous too. After using it I couldn’t tell a difference in my skin’s appearance, but it did feel smoother. (And that is good enough for me to keep using it!)
Rachel recommends using this before applying self tanner.
This is one of the most moisturizing lip cream/lipstick products I’ve ever tried – I love it. I’m not normally a lipstick person, but this one is perfect for me. The pigment isn’t as strong as most lipsticks – instead it gives a nice sheer color coverage.
Too Faced Sun Bunny Bronzer – Value $34
This bronzer is highly pigmented, and has a good amount of shimmer, but still the overall look is matte – which I love.
Bristols Six Nippies Skin Covers – Value $26
Rachel included Bristols Six styling tape in the first Box of Style, so I think getting a styling tool/accessory in every box can probably be expected.
These are reusable, and Rachel included them since “Summer is the season for sheer, gauzy, and lightweight fabrics. Nippies are the perfect styling accessory when a bra would be distracting. They mold to your body, work with your natural curves and go unnoticed in the best possible way.”
Rachel also suggested using these in shoes as heel pads or insoles.
I still haven’t used my styling tape from the last box, but I’ll store these with tape for some future styling need!
Verdict: I love everything in this box – it feels so luxe and fashionable to me. The value is great too – about $374! What do you think of the Summer 2015 Box of Style? I already can’t wait to see what the Fall box hero item will be!
