Turkish-T Birchbox Stripe Breeze Towel in Teal – Value $32
This towel measures approx 36″ X 70″ and is 100% cotton! I have the same towel thanks to the June 2014 POPSUGAR Must Have Box, and I’m thrilled to have another one! The material is somewhat stiff at first, but one round through the laundry and it comes out super soft!
I think these towels are great for the beach – they are a great size, and they don’t take up much space in your bag, either!
I have a pair of Knockaround sunglasses thanks to last year’s Birchbox Summer Limited Edition box, and I love them so I’m happy to have more. Mirrored lenses are my favorite when it comes to sunglasses, and the clear frames are a new look for me!
Milk Makeup Blush Oil in Flush – Value $28
(Customers will receive, Flush, Crave, or Ripe.)
I love a cheek tint product I can apply directly to my face, and this packaging is really perfect for hot summer weather. (No worrying about a cheek tint stick melting in your purse!) The color is pretty neon in the tube, but it was easy to blend out and the end result was a natural looking blush. (Swatched below.)
Cargo California Throwback Palette – Value $34?
This product isn’t for sale anymore from Cargo’s website, so I’m estimating the value based on their other palettes. I’m guessing this is either older stock or reintroduced for the Limited Edition box. It’s a great palette, so I’m not complaining, but if you like it – this seems to be the only way to buy it.
Here are all the pieces of the palette:
The magnetic design of this palette is awesome. Here it is in action:
I like this because you can remove any part of the palette you might not want. For me, it’s the lip gloss section. Unlike some other palettes I’ve tried over the years, the lip gloss pans are not solid – but pretty goopy. I prefer this type of lip gloss formula in a tube, so I probably won’t use it often. The colors, shimmer, and shine are great, though – I just don’t think they make sense in pan form.
The pigment is great on all the colors as well. The eyeshadows offer two shimmer and two matte shades, and the blush and bronzer have a nice subtle shimmer with buildable color. Here is everything swatched (Milk cheek tint at the top, followed by blush and bronzer, eyeshadows, and lip glosses):
Supergoop! Everyday SPF 50 with Cellular Response Technology – 1 oz Value $8
This sunscreen is oil-free, and it absorbs so quickly. I love it! I wish the sample was a little larger, but this is good for travel.
Kopari Coconut Body Glow – .5 oz Value $6
I had seen this in the Birchbox shop and wanted to try it, so I’m glad I got to sample it through this box instead of buying it in the full-size version. The subtle coconut scent is lovely, and I like the ingredient-conscious formula. BUT! The sparkles are pretty noticeable! I would say this is great for the beach, but for me, it’s a little too much of a look for everyday wear. And right now my hands are super shimmery after applying it!
Davines This Is a Sea Salt Spray – 100 ml Value $10.80
This is probably the best sea salt spray I’ve ever tried. The scent is amazing and I like that you can use it on dry or wet hair.
Living proof. No Frizz Humidity Shield – Travel-size Value $14
Someone get this to Monica Geller stat!
I don’t have any humid weather to test this with right now, but like all Living Proof products, it smells amazing, and based on the reviews I’ve seen, works great, too!
Birchbox Summer Pouch – Value $8?
This is a great basic, and the neon color is fun for summer. Not something I would go out and buy, but it is useful!
And here is my free mystery sample pack:
I lucked out on that LAFCO soap sample!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $160. I think that’s good for a $58 box. I’ll use every item besides the Coconut Body Glow, and I think all the items included are great hot-weather picks!
