Are you going to grab a Resort box? Check out my review of the 2016 POPSUGAR Resort box, my review of the 2015 POPSUGAR Resort Box, and my review of the 2014 POPSUGAR Resort Box to see what has been in past boxes!
Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
Now, onto the items!
This necklace measures about 36 inches long and it can be worn as one strand or doubled up. Here it is on:
Alternatively, you can wrap it around several times as a bracelet, too.
Roberta Roller Rabbit Beach Shrug – Retail Value $95
This beach shrug is an exclusive print just for POPSUGAR Must Have.
It has an open front, and the back has a strap across it.
It’s made with 100% cotton, and the fabric is sheer and lightweight, so it has a flowy vibe!
POPSUGAR sent us this spoiler early so I can answer any questions you might have about it!
Here it is on to give you a better sense of how it looks on:
And I recommend you check out their tutorial on this shrug, too! (Lots of ways to wear this piece!)
The Beach People Escape Beach Cushion – Value $29
This is inflatable beach cushion comes with a super soft, 100% cotton pillow case, and an inflatable cushion insert:
And here it is when you add the inflatable cushion:
I LOVE this item! It’s so practical for the beach and equal parts cute, too!
And the flip side has this adorable dot pattern. Here’s a closer look at the hidden zipper and cotton fabric:
A super useful beach item that takes up very little suitcase space? Yes, please!
Vosges Mint Matcha Chocolate Bar – Value $8
Vosges is one of those gourmet chocolate brands my husband and I love seeing in subscription boxes!
My husband Eric absolutely loved this bar. He said the matcha and mint were subtle but there in every bite – it wasn’t a flavor combination he was sure about, but he ended up eating this whole bar pretty quickly!
EVE LOM Cleanser and Muslin Cloth – Value $50
Another fabulous luxe brand I’m always happy to see in subscription boxes! (It rarely happens, though!)
This cleansing balm is a beauty cult-classic for good reasons – it makes cleaning your face feel like a luxe beauty ritual.
And it comes with a muslin cloth to use with it:
If you aren’t familiar with how to use this cleanser, here are the instructions:
-Use the cleanser once a day in the evening for normal to dry skin types, and twice daily in the morning and evening for congested skin.
-Apply a small amount to dry fingertips, then gently massage across a dry face and neck until the cleanser is evenly distributed.
-Saturate the Muslin Cloth in hot water and squeeze off any excess.
-Fold it into a square and work it across the face and neck in small, circular movements to eliminate all traces of cleanser, dirt, and makeup.
-Rinse the face and cloth thoroughly in cool water, pressing the fabric against the skin to complete the cleanse for a closed-pore look and feel.
I love the natural essential oil scent of eucalyptus, and the cleanser was gentle on my skin, and great for removing eye makeup, too. (Plus a solid cleanser makes it easier for travel!)
Triple C Diamond Play – Value $30
This little blue-tooth speaker is pretty slick with its multi-function button. You press and hold it in to turn on and off, press it in once to play/pause, hold it to the left to lower the volume, to the right to raise the volume, and giving it a quick press to the right or left will skip to the next track!
It comes with a cord for charging and should last for about 4 hours between charges. (This isn’t a high-quality audio speaker, but perfect for throwing in your beach bag and enjoying at the beach or outdoors!)
I also love the minimalist diamond design. I’ll be displaying this on a shelf in my office when not in use!
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $308. I think that’s great for a $100 box, and in line with the value I’ve come to expect from POPSUGAR Limited Edition boxes. The surprise for me this time is that my favorite items were the non-spoiled items in this box!
I would pay the retail price for the pillow, speaker, EVE LOM, and chocolate ($117 total). The shrug and necklace are a little outside of my style/comfort zone, so I wouldn’t have gone out and bought them, but I’ll use them now that I have them. (And I know every year the POPSUGAR Resort boxes include a style specific item or two, so that’s a part of the gamble – I can’t win them all!)
