Luxor Box Special Edition Summer Fun Box Review

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


In addition to their bi-monthly subscription box, Luxor box also does Limited Edition boxes. This review is for their Special Edition Summer Fun Luxor Box. (No longer available).

This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).


Everything in this box usually comes in its own packaging so it’s great for gifts. Here are the items out of the packaging:


FYI this box is no longer available for sale, but here are the box details:

The Box: Luxor “Summer Fun” Box

The Cost: $200 to the US, $230 to Canada

The Products:With a total box value of OVER $550, the June Special Edition Box features a mix of products with the theme “Summer Fun” in mind! And customers get to select their 1951 Maison Francaise purse:


Each box comes with individual info cards per item, and some of the brands include coupon codes as well.


1951 Maison Francaise Besace – Value $130

1951 Maison Francaise Porte-Monnaie – Value $40

Subscribers were able to pick their color for this box:

The back includes a loop for a belt if you want to wear it that way:


And it comes with the cutest matching coin purse:


It’s leather with the signature polka dot lining:



And the best part? This mini purse is big enough to fit my iPhone 6+!


And here it is on the dress form to give you a better sense of where the purse falls:


I really like the deep burgundy color of this leather, and it’s the perfect size for a “small” purse for me!


Jules Smiths Watercolor Leopard Sarong – Value $100

This sarong measures 42″ by 61″ and like all other sarongs, when I see it I think…scarf!


This scarf is 100% viscose, and it the fabric feels so luxe and lightweight. I love it! Here it is styled as a scarf:

On to more Jules Smith items!


Jules Smith Gemma Necklace – Value $75

Delicate gold jewelry is my favorite kind of jewelry, so this is a perfect piece for me, and I like the simple layered look, too. (This piece is made with 14k Gold Plated and Swarovski Crystals.)

Here it is on to give you a better sense of how the layers fall:



Jules Smith Gemma Earrings – Value $65

Another item made with 14k Gold Plated and Swarovski Crystals!


These are pretty delicate and you can remove the lower piece and just wear them as mini studs, too:


I think these pieces work well on their own or together. I like that Luxor box didn’t make this set too matchy.


WeWood Xipe BL 7060 Sunglasses – Value $120


Based on the texture of these glasses, I assumed they were made from wood, but they are actually made from sustainable cotton!



I think these are unique but still a classic color and shape – perfect for a summer box!


Arete Performance Towel – Value $60

(Based on the info card, it looks like subscribers will receive various prints)

I love the print of my towel:


Even though Luxor Box referred to this as a “beach towel” I definitely wouldn’t use it there. This is a high-performance sweat absorbing towel, that is non-slip for yoga, too.

And here is a picture of our dog Buckles so you can get a sense of the scale of this towel. It is generously sized!



Monoi Tiare Oil – Value $25

This is one of those multi-use oils that can work on hair, skin, cuticle, etc. And it’s made with only three ingredients: coconut oil, tiare flower, and vitamin E!

Since it is made from coconut oil, it will likely solidify, so they recommend running the bottle under warm water to liquify it.

I love the tiare flower scent – I think it is a perfect beachy/summery scent!


Verdict: This box has a value of about $615. I think that’s great for a $200 box – especially with the quality of all of these brands and items included. I think Luxor Box seems to pay attention to the brands their subscribers love the most and continue to feature them in future boxes.

I also like that they let subscribers pick the color of the spoiler purse item – very smart!

This may be my favorite Limited Edition Luxor Box yet – I’m seriously impressed!

  1. This was my first-ever Luxor box, & I enjoyed it. I think revealing the hero item & letting buyers select the color in advance was a really good marketing tool. I never would’ve allowed myself to spend the money without that! I also chose the carmin purse, and I really like it — good size for me, too. I did receive a different color variation of the towel — mine is taupe with a sort of ombre to dusty rose in the middle — it’s subtle and pretty!

  2. I’m glad I passed on this one. Nice looking items but not my style at all except the scarf–love those colors. But the last thing in the world I need is another scarf.

  3. I love everything in this box!!! It’s all better in person! I have the bag in Navy and it’s MUCH bigger that it appears and holds a lot more than it also appears it would. I’m going to have to give up the sunglasses due to the fact that I have to wear regular glasses all of the time.
    (And like Liz, I see sarongs as a pretty new scarf!!!)

  4. Glad I passed on this box and saved my money. Nothing here is a must-have for me. I do sort of like the beach “towel” though.

  5. Great review and great box. But my personal preference at this point would be that they diversify the brand of jewelry. This set is ok, but overall would prefer to see other types/brands. It’s the reason I didnt spend $650 on a box – because it’s sure to include this brand.

  6. So glad I stayed strong and canceled. Not the box for me.

  7. Oh Buckles just looks so happy 🙂
    Hope you get feeling better soon.

    I didn’t get this box, but love those sunglasses! Really like the sarong/scarf and the jewelry too! I now almost everyone loves those 1951 purses, but I’m not a leather person so they’re not for me. If I knew there was going to be a box without leather, I’d probably order it.

    • Thanks so much, Randi!

  8. Great review! This is my first Luxor box and I loved it! I had no idea the earrings could be studs. I’ve used the purse both with the strap and as a belt bag, worn the necklace and the sunglasses. Clearly, I’m getting my money’s worth here. 🙂

    • Yay! So glad you love your first box and you’re already using everything! 🙂

  9. This is way nicer than the the popsugar LE box – especially since 15 days since shipping notice has passed and mine is still not here. Need to cancel PS and stick with Luxor.

    • To be fair, this box also cost twice as much as the PSMH Summer LE.

  10. Great review! Hope you are feeling better. Love to see Buckles in the pics!

    • Thanks so much, Joy! I’m definitely on the mend! 🙂

  11. Great box — I didn’t get one, but I love every item, especially the bag and the jewelry.

    And hello, Buckles! Always a joy to see that dapper man! ?

    • Always happy to provide some Buckles pictures 🙂 Thanks, Orlee!

  12. All the items look and seem cheap, the bag looks like something a 70 year old wear. I liked their previous boxes but this one not so much, the sarong / scarf is nice

  13. This is easily the best Luxor SE I’ve ever seen! I’ve always said that the regular boxes are better than the SE boxes, but this box and the last regular box (and the spoiler for the next regular box) have me second guessing that.

    • I agree! This was one of those boxes where I was surprised how many items were included (in a good way!) 🙂

  14. Whew, glad I don’t have FOMO. The items seem nice, but they aren’t for me.

    Luxor sure loves 1951. I’d never even heard of them until this sub.

  15. I didn’t think I’d like the 1951 so held off but feeling like this would have been a good box for me (sans jewelry). Sad I missed it now that I have s better look at the bag and sunglasses.

  16. Almost pulled the trigger on this one, but got scared at the last minute. lol I do like the 1951, and to be honest, this is the FIRST 1951 I would actually use. I prefer large satchels but this one is so reminiscent of my first leather Coach bags back in the 80’s it just made me want it! hehe BUT the rest of the box would have been a bust for me. 🙁 SO while sad I missed the bag glad i didn’t spend the money. This time…… I will do it one day, just need the perfect spoilers!! and price!
