Every year, POPSUGAR releases a POPSUGAR Must Have Limited Edition Summer Box - full of items that would be perfect to enjoy the summer!
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.
FYI – if you are interested in purchasing this box, it is still available!
The Cost: $100
The Products: “Wishing every day was a beach day? This box will set you up for an endless Summer of looking chic with must haves for the beach, heat-proof goodies, and more that will continue to make you daydream about your favorite outings at the shore.” (Over $300 worth of luxe beach accessories.)
Check out my review of the Summer 2016 Limited Edition POPSUGAR Box and my review of the Summer 2015 Limited Edition POPSUGAR Box to see what you can expect from this box!
Mar Y Sol Collins Tote – Value $129
(If you aren’t a pom person, don’t worry – the poms are removable!)
The bag is handmade with Sisal/sea grass and leather trim. And it has one interior pocket:
It measures 13″W x 11 ½”H x 7″D. The material is firm enough for this to also work as a storage basket in your home.
Here it is in hand to give you a better sense of scale:
And I'll be using it as for storage at home, too:
Hamptons Lane Serious Shimmer Spray - Value $32
(Subscribers will receive either the Bronze or Pearl spray. POPSUGAR sent me one of each for reviews purposes)
These both have a light, beachy scent that I love. Looking at the shimmer in the bottle, I was expecting this to be a super shimmery spray, but it's one of those shimmers I only noticed when I stepped into the sun.
It takes a few minutes to dry, but that is probably a good thing if you are looking for a product to help you cool off!
There wasn't a big difference to me in the color from these sprays, but the bronze one is a bit more tinted.
Polaroid PLD 6003 Sunglasses - Retail Value $65
First, this case! This is a hard-shell sunglass case with a smooth matte finish. Unlike some cases that come with sunglasses, this is a heavy duty case that I would gladly pay for to keep my sunglasses safe!
Inside, you'll also get a cloth to help keep the lenses clean!
These sunglasses are made with lightweight blue frame and mirror lenses.
Mirrored lenses are my favorite when it comes to sunglasses, and I love the signature Lisa Sugar blue color, too! (Most of my sunglasses are gold or black, so this is a nice addition to my collection!)
The Polaroid lenses are specially designed to make sure you still see correct colors while blocking glare.
And you get some subtle Polaroid branding, too:
Here they are on:
Hello from Austin!
Sunnylife Reversible Coasters - Value $18
This set includes 16 reversible coasters. They are made from a gloss-coated cardboard, so they are reusable.
My husband Eric saw me open this box and as soon as he saw me pull this item out of the box, he said: "you must be SO excited!" (I love all things Lobster thanks to Pheobe/Friends.)
Even if you aren't a lobster fan, I think these have a great nautical vibe!
Hint Sunscreen Spray in Grapefruit - Value $24
(Scents may vary)
I knew Hint made flavored water, but I didn't know they did sunscreen! This one smells AMAZING!
I'm SO impressed with this sunscreen. The nozzle spray uses only compressed air, eliminating the need for propellant chemicals. The mist is super fine, too. It sprays on clear, so you don't have to rub it in. The formula is also free of oxybenzone and parabens! (And it's water resistant!)
And maybe the best part is the scent. This grapefruit scent smells exactly like a grapefruit. I love it, and I'm already planning on buying the Pineapple and Pear versions!
Big Picture Farm Farmstead Milk Caramels in Chai - Value $10
These caramels are made with al natural and organic ingredients. (And I love that POPSUGAR picked a treat that is easy to ship in the summer heat!)
The chai flavor at first didn't seem summery to me, but Eric was more than happy to taste test these, and LOVED them! They are soft caramels that melt in your mouth. And no surprise, this whole box is now empty!
Jane Iredale Lip Fixation in Craving - Value $32
This lip duo has lip stain on one side, lip gloss on the other:
The lip stain is my go-to lip color. I love it! The formula isn't too drying either. Here it is swatched:
The gloss wasn't sticky for me at first, but it got a little stickier after some wear, so I recommend just using a lip balm if you want to avoid any stickiness.
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $310. 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. This is one of my favorite Limited Edition boxes, too.
While I have a lot of summer bags/beach bags, I love that this one doubles as chic storage for the home. It's a great way to give a room a bit of a beachy vibe! The sunscreen was a great discovery for me, I love the mirrored sunglasses, the lip stain is the perfect color, I love all things lobster, Eric loved the caramels, and the cooling mist is a nice addition, too. So, this is pretty much the perfect summer box for me!
