LUV AJ Open Crescent Ring + Pave Tusk Lariat Exclusive Set – Value $190
This is the hero item in the box! (Each season, The Zoe Report releases their hero item for the upcoming box – usually the item alone is worth more than the entire cost of the box.)
Here are both pieces:
And here is a better look at the necklace:
It’s a very-well made piece, and goes perfectly with my preference for delicate gold jewelry. (I’m wearing the necklace in the last picture in this review, too, so you can see what it looks like on!)
And here is the ring on:
More pave crystals! And it’s open, so you can adjust the size!
YHF Los Angeles Cashton Brown Sunglasses – Value $40
These sunglasses were such a great surprise in the box! Since we already knew the jewelry set and swim coverup were going to be in the box, I wasn’t expecting another accessory!
I like the gold metal and tortoiseshell accents too. Here is a better look at the tortoiseshell:
OUAI Haircare Wave Spray – 1.7 oz Value $8.90
This spray was one of the spoiled items, and I was very interested in trying out the OUAI brand after I saw the Facebook Live Video with Rachel Zoe and Jen Atkin discussing the OUAI line.
The wave spray is more scented than I expected (think of it as part hair perfume), but the scent didn’t bother me.
I tried this out on dry hair and I was immediately impressed with the volume it added – serious volume and waves pretty much instantly! I’m going to try it on wet hair tonight with the dream turban in this box – I’ll update with the results tomorrow!
Juice Beauty is one of my favorite beauty brands! I love that they use organic ingredients – it’s especially important with skincare items I’ll be applying directly to my face!
This moisturizer absorbs quickly enough, and I just love the signature green apple scent!
DreamDry The Dream Turban – Value $30
In each box, Rachel includes one of her go-to styling tools. (Think fashion tape, blotting sheets, etc.) They are always super useful to me, but usually not that exciting.
But that has changed with this box – I’m so excited about this turban! Here is how you use it:
You can use your blowdryer on your hair once it is in the dream turban, or let it air dry with the turban on. Rachel gave her tips, too:
I use this DreamDry Turban every time I wash my hair – I even travel with it. I love that I can throw it on before bed and wake up with smooth, frizz-free hair. Sometimes I even use it with a conditioner or oil, then wrap it up for a deep-conditioning treatment.
And I’m happy to report that this is SUPER comfortable on – I was thinking I wouldn’t be able to sleep it in, but after putting it on I didn’t want to take it off!
Michael Stars Pastel Gardens Coverup – $58 Value
This coverup is exactly as bold as I was expecting after seeing the spoiler pictures! I normally don’t wear bright colors, but this seems appropriate for the summer/beach, and my bathing suit is basic black, so I guess I can afford to mix it up a little!
The material is lightweight and sheer, so it won’t take up much room at all in your beach bag. It’s 100% polyester and dry clean only. (I’m taking dry clean only as a challenge – I think putting this in the gentle cycle on cold and letting it hang dry will work.)
And I was fortunate enough to be at the beach this weekend with family and friends, so I was able to actually try everything from this box at the proper locale! Here I am with the sunglasses, jewelry, beach wave hair, and coverup:
Our dog Buckles was not feeling this picture! (I’m still a little hesitant about posting pictures of myself wearing things in reviews – so any tips for posing are welcome!)
Verdict: I think the Summer 2016 Box of Style is a perfect summer box. It feels special, resort-ready, and there are no filler items! The retail value of this box is about $365. I like that it pushed me out of my fashion comfort zone a bit with the cover up, included some fabulous staples (Juice Beauty SPF – I can never have enough of you), and introduced me to some new brands as well!
