Ocean Tribe by Turkish-T Kilim Towel – Value $49
This is one of my favorite POPSUGAR items of all time! I love Turkish towels, and this one is different than any of the others in my collection. The pattern is gorgeous, and the fabric is a little thicker than your standard Turkish towel, too! It’s a perfect beach/pool towel!
It’s 100% Turkish Cotton and measures 35 x 63 inches. The reverse side is lovely, too:
This could also work as a throw blanket for indoors or outdoors.
Here it is with me holding it up to give you a better sense of scale:
Bando Sip Sip Tumbler - Value $14
I love Bando! (I buy their agendas and phone cases all the time!) They are such a fun and cute brand, and this tumbler matches their aesthetic perfectly.
It's a double-walled acrylic tumbler with a silicone straw.
It holds 20 ounces and is handwash recommended. (I've put other Bando tumblers in the dishwasher on the top rack and had no issues, though.)
Supergoop Super Power Sunscreen Mousse SPF 50 - Value $19
Another brand I love! (And I'm always happy to see quality sunscreen in subscription boxes.) This mousse formula is new to me, and it is amazing. (For reference, you need about a golf ball sized amount of mousse for each arm.)
It's super easy to blend into your skin, and it is SO lightweight! And the formula is free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, and oxybenzone.
!!! This is the waterproof version of my holy grail mascara! It adds volume, length, and you can apply multiple layers without any clumping issues. I normally buy the non-waterproof version, so it's great to have this for the summer.
And it is REALLY waterproof! It's even a little makeup remover proof! You will need a really good makeup remover to get this off, but the good news is you will not have to worry about any smudging, flakes, etc.
One thing I've noticed with both the regular and waterproof formulas is that the first one or two applications take a little more time/coats to get the results I want. After that, the wand seems to be perfectly coated, and the formula goes on perfectly in a few coats. (So if you aren't in love with it after the first try, don't give up!)
I love the colors and design of this box!
And these oversized matches (10 inches long) are perfect for lighting grills, bonfires, etc.
Snyder's of Hanover Wholey Cheese Smoked Gouda - Value $3.50
These cheese crackers are gluten free and made with real cheese.
My taste testers agreed they were super airy, crisp, and just generally delicious!
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $118. And I think it's my perfect summer box. There are so many brands I love in the July box, and a lot of products I would pay full price for, so the value here is even higher for me!
What do you think of the July POPSUGAR Must Have Box? Does this box feel perfect for summer for you too?
