POPSUGAR Must Have Special Edition Summer 2016 Box Review
Each summer, POPSUGAR releases a $100 POPSUGAR Must Have Special Edition Summer Box filled with summer inspired favorites. (This box has since sold out).
This box comes wrapped ready to gift!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Box: POPSUGAR Must Have Special Edition Summer Box (SOLD OUT)
The Cost: $100
The Products: Summer-inspired favorites!
Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
Hat Attack Twisted Stripe Tote Value $95
This is my kind of beach bag! I think the style is timeless, and I like the thin leather strap handle detail. Here is a look at the (unlined) inside:
It’s a pretty roomy bag! Here it is with our dog Buckles to give you a better sense of scale:
(I’ll be back in review pictures soon – unfortunately, I’m a little under the weather this week 🙁 )
The Chesterman circle towel by Tofino Towel Co – Value $74.99
This towel is 100% cotton and just as fluffy and soft as I was expecting from a name-brand circle towel! I like that it comes individually wrapped for gifting, too. Here it is unfolded (with a little puppy shown for scale):
Corkcicle Canteen – Value $27.95 (16 oz version)
I get a lot of water bottles thanks to subscription boxes, but I can’t resist a beautifully designed bottle, so when I saw this in the spoilers, I was in love!
It has a stainless steel lining and three layers of insulation so it keeps cool things cool for 25 hours, and hot things hot for 12 hours.
It also has flat sides to keep it from rolling, and a wide cap to make it easy to put in ice:
My only issue with this canteen is that Corkcicle recommends handwashing all their products. I think I’ll give it a try in the dishwasher top rack, though.
I’ve sampled the Herbivore brand thanks to other natural subscription boxes, so I was excited to see it in a POPSUGAR box! This mist is fine, light, and refreshing, and while I don’t always like rose scents, I don’t mind this one.
I had been using it on a makeup-free face at the beginning of the day, but I read Sephora reviews that say it’s great for a mid-day makeup setting mist that should give you a dewy complexion!
Londontown Lakur Royal Wedding – Value $16
While nail polish isn’t the most exciting thing for me to get in a subscription box, this coral creme color does seem perfect for summer. Here it is on:
I only needed two coats for full coverage, too.
Sugarfina Ice Cream Cones – Value $7.50
My husband Eric always gets excited about when POPSUGAR boxes show up because they pick the best snacks and sweets, and he was eyeing this candy cube from the minute I opened the box!
We shared the cube, and these gummies were delicious! Not too chewy, and the strawberry, raspberry, and vanilla flavors were great, too.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $253. I think that’s a good value for this box, especially considering there aren’t any exclusively made items for the box. (Sometimes I think the value of exclusive items in subscription boxes can be debated, but in this case, these are all regular retail prices). Personally, I love the style and colors of this box, so it’s a hit with me!
