MSA Kloverbox The Beach House Box Reveal + Giveaway
This summer, I got to work with Kelly from Kloverbox to put together a one-time-purchase limited edition box inspired by the beach house. We wanted to focus on a mix of beauty products and a few lifestyle/home items as well.
Admittedly, this reveal post is way overdue! When the boxes first shipped there were some shipping and product issues that prevented everyone from getting their boxes at the same time, and I wanted to wait until everyone had their issues resolved before posting a reveal post. (Then I ended up moving, this box was in storage for a while, and then here we are in October!)
FYI – this box is no longer available.
The Cost: $100
The Products: Beauty, home and lifestyle items inspired by a beach house vacation
The box included a fold out card detailing the items included.
One Love Organics Vitamin C Body Polish – Value $48
If you read this blog frequently, you may already know that I LOVE One Love Organics! I think they make the best smelling scents ever – and of course, their products work great too. (And they use natural and organic ingredients!)
This scrub is such an indulgent treat – it smells like a delicious tropical cocktail drink, and I think the formula has the perfect amount of moisture.
Hand in Hand Sea Salt Hand Soap – Value $18
Another scent that I love! This sea salt liquid soap has a refreshing (almost minty) scent, and I love a hand soap bottle with pretty packaging – it will be on display next to your sink after all!
Plus one thing I really like about Hand in Hand: For every product purchased, they donate one bar of soap and one month of clean water to save a child’s life.
Thursday Friday Gold Toe Tote – Retail Value $110
(This was sent in three different beachy color options).
We knew we wanted a beach tote for this box, and after looking at lots of options, this Thursday Friday tote was the winner. We wanted something that was easy to actually take to the beach (this tote is is made from cotton canvas on the outside with nylon lining on the inside), but could also work as a purse/tote when on vacation.
And it has all the zippers, pockets, and key ring you would want in an actual purse too:
One thing to note – while Kelly and I were sourcing items, we were also keeping a running tally of the value, and we wanted to deliver a good value compared to the cost. So for those purposes, since Thursday Friday products are often offered at a discount, we didn’t count it as a $110 retail value.
Tatcha Enriching Renewal Cream – Travel Size (12 ml) – Value $39
Tatcha is another brand I’m obsessed with, and we worked with them to get a travel-sized super luxe skincare item for this box. This moisture cream sample is large enough to last a for a full week’s vacation, and this is one of those samples I use a q-tip for to get every last drop – it is that good!
Goldfaden MD Sun Visor – Value $45
We knew we wanted an SPF product for this box, and this mist is such a unique sunscreen, so it was an easy choice! The Goldfaden MD Sun Visor is a mist spray that dries clear so you can apply it over makeup throughout the day for SPF touch-ups without ruining your makeup. (And it works directly on your skin without makeup too).
Olio Studio Aqua Stripe Pillow – Value $50
This pillow was made by Olio Studio exclusively for this box. We wanted to get a pillow that had a simple/classic design that could work with lots of different decor styles while still being reminiscent of the beach. The flip side of the pillow is completely blue too for a less nautical look:
I was about to write a verdict for this post, but then remembered I picked out every item in the box, so that doesn’t really apply here! I’d love to know what you thought about the box, though! (My apologies again for the shipping issues).
When I was originally planning this reveal post, I wanted to do a giveaway of the box as well. As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, we had shipping and product issues, so we couldn’t keep an extra box as originally planned for a giveaway.
Instead, I’ll do a giveaway for another ingredient-conscious subscription company. One lucky reader will win a $250 Honest Company Gift card!
Enter the giveaway below and good luck! (Winner will be contacted by email – make sure to enter with an email account you check frequently).
(FYI – if you do the refer-a-friend entry option in this giveaway, you’ll get the entries for that once the friend has entered the giveaway).
