Are you going to grab a Limited Edition Fall Box box? Check out my review of the 2016 POPSUGAR Fall Box, and my review of the 2015 POPSUGAR Fall Box to see what has been in past boxes!

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included:

Now, on to the items!

DANNIJO Dagny Necklace - Retail Value $195

This is a POPSUGAR-exclusive statement necklace!

The necklace is made of steel plated oxidized silver and the gems are made of glass. All DANNIJO Jewelry, including this glam necklace, is produced by responsible manufacturing facilities.
 Here it is on:

I decided to lean into the edgy vibe of this necklace and pair it with a moto hoodie jacket and a casual t-shirt dress.

I really like the mixed materials of this necklace. It's both fancy and edgy, and I feel like it's easy to dress up or down.

(Malin + Goetz) Recovery Treatment Oil – Value $82

Yes to full-size pricey skin care items! And I love this brand, too!

This oil is lightweight, absorbs quickly, and has a faint, natural scent. It’s pretty much exactly what I look for in a serum/facial oil, so I am very pleased with this inclusion. And Fall/Winter means dry skin season, so the timing is great, too.

Hat Attack Lightweight Layer Black Poncho - Retail Value $88

This is a soft, 100% acrylic knit, that you can wear as a boatneck style, or diagonal.

Here's how I'm wearing it:

My fall/winter go-to look is: leggings, boots, long-sleeve mini dress, and a vest. But, I'm digging the poncho as an alternative to a vest! Plus it gives the outfit a whole different look.

(Check out our spoiler post of this box to see different ways we styled this poncho, too!)

Foreo Luna Play + Facial Cleansers – $39 Value

If you aren’t familiar with the Foreo Luna Play, it’s a pulsating device that allows you to get a much deeper clean when cleansing your face. (Similar to a Clarisonic.) 

This device is 100 uses and not rechargeable, so a few MSA readers recommended using it as a tool to clean makeup brushes once the battery runs out. Foreo also gives tips for recycling your Play device. (This also came with a coupon code to save $39 off the full-size rechargeable Luna Foreo Device).

I’d been a Clarisonic user for years, but last year I switched to Foreo thanks to the first time I sampled this device!

Both Clarisonic and Foreo do a great job at cleaning my skin thoroughly. (While using the Foreo Play, I did wish that there were different intensity settings like there are on Clarisonic, but these options exist on the full-sized versions.)

The big difference for me is the silicone brush surface area. It’s nonporous and will resist any bacteria build up. With Clarisonic, you have to always buy replacement brush heads. (At $22 a new brush head, switched out every 2-3 months, the costs add up!) 

Here is a closer look at the device:

It has one speed only, and an on/off button on the back:

And you get cleansers, too:

Good to know: you do NOT need to use FOREO cleansers with your FOREO device. They are a nice extra, but honestly, I prefer just using my favorite cleanser instead.

The day cleanser is pretty scented, and the night one is exfoliating. In general, both get the job done!

Smith & Cult Book of Eyes Ice Tears - Value $44

OMG! This is my first Smith & Cult palette and I love it!

Also, props to POPSUGAR for including a colorway we don't typically see in subscription boxes: icy blues!

The pigment and shimmer on these shades are gorgeous!

The top three shades have a ton of shimmer, while the bottom grey has a more matte finish:

So pretty!

Sisters of Los Angeles Sweet & Sour Glasses - Value $28

I'm used to getting a food item in Limited Edition boxes, but I'll gladly take this classy barware instead!

This set is a smokey glasses with metallic "Sour" and "Sweet" text.

These will look great on our bar, and I am digging the dark vibes of these glasses. (This whole box goes well with the September monthly box, too!)

Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $476! Um...amazing! I think this is the best Limited Edition box I've ever seen from POPSUGAR! I can't believe that the two non-spoiled items were such hero items! An eye shadow palette from Smith & Cult and a home item? I am seriously so impressed!

I just bought an extra one today from Gilt City for $60, no tax or shipping! The discounted price was $75 with an additional $15 off code for new members. And yes, it’s the exact same contents – Gilt just called it the Cozy box. AMAZING deal!

I bought two boxes for gifts and I can’t wait to hear how they like it.
I think everyone would love this…. I put battery type mini candles in my glasses. Cute for Halloween! I swapped the oil because I had one already.
I’m ready to wear my poncho. Having shoulder surgery soon and think this will be perfect slip on sweater.

Hi ladies! I received my tracking number for this box on 9/22 but it hasn’t updated or shown any movement other than the label was created since then. Can anyone tell me if this is normal?
Thanks!

Nothing like that has ever happened to me with PopSugar, in several years of subscribing and getting LE boxes. Usually there is movement within a few days of getting the shipment notification. I would contact them; their CS is usually pretty good in my experience.

I didn’t see enough spoilers to warn me off the box, so I’v ended up with a bunch of things I am not crazy about. I would be happy to sell the necklace, glasses and eye shadow at the prices listed above if anyone is interested. Feel free to contact me smithk61 at yahoo dot com

That Dannijo necklace is everything, but the rest of the box is cute, but I have way too much of this kind of stuff from other boxes, so I looked on ebay, and found someone selling their necklace- I made an offer, and paid $30 for it, including shipping.
The price per item breakdown is very helpful, since it helped show how much was a fair price to pay for the necklace- I am also glad that i was able to help someone out by buying a piece off of them that they didn’t want.
I love the Dynalex Necklace from BOS last year, and this is very different that that one, so I am thrilled to add it to my collection. BTW- did anyone check out the prices on Dannijo website!? I really hope it lives up to the big price tag- they have some styles on there for $500, $600 and $700!!

This is a suggestion about your website. I love it and it is the only place I check but there is too many links and adds that my iPad constantly has to reload or crashes. Secondly I don’t like that I have to scroll past so many old comments to get to the comment link please add at the top it makes no sense to add a new comment you have to scroll past a hundred plus old comments. Also there should be a link to read all comments. It should be a choice.

My box just arrived and I LOVE it! The poncho is very long on me but will look good over so many dresses and jeans I have!

The Necklace is WAY better than junk jewelry. It is oxidized and the bling is subtle. It has a rocker edge to it. I tried pairing with Dylanlex necklace from the RZ LImited Edition from last winter and it works great when you want more bling! But is it worth $195? Definitely not! It is well mad and the stones are set well no glue but are prong set.

The Eyeshadow Palette is definitely not retro disco ball. It is a great palette and did not irritate my eyes! I was kind of thrown off by the way the palette sits but it is unique and works for the Rocker Chic vibe. Smokey eye lover this is a great palette!

The Foreo is awesome. I love that it is black to keep with the edgy vibe. I tried it out and will probably get the big one after I get through my supply of brush heads.

The glasses! I adore the smokey tones in the. Just make sure you hand wash them. I hand wash certain glasses all the time so this is no biggie for me!

I have not tried the face oil. I love face oils anyway!

This box was cohesive and that is what PS needs to do with all the LE boxes!

So this was a total score A+++++++ box for me! I am so happy I got it and can’t wait to see what the Winter PS Limited Edition

For those who purchased one, did you get any email confirmation of purchase &/or shipping yet?

If I login to my account, the box shows up as being bought, but I never received any sort of communication from PS regarding this.

Really hoping this isn’t another BeautyCon situation….

You will receive an email when your box ships. Mine is on its way but I bought mine very early. I think it depends on the time you order your box.

Personally I feel that the value of this box is more subjective. Sure, the retail price of that necklace is nearly $200, but I would never pay that much for it. I wouldn’t pay as much as they’re asking for any of these items. So sure, it’s a retail value of like $500 but would you have bought any of those items individually at full retail? I sure wouldn’t.

I agree. I don’t pay any attention to Retail Value. I pay attention to what is included in the box. For $100 this was a total win for me. Personally this is my favorite PS LE box ever! I am so glad I did not get the Resort one but I loved Summer and I love this one even more! Yeah for no snacks in LE boxes! This box rocks!

Now that I have the box, I’m even more impressed. Everything is so, so nice. High quality; I’d be thrilled to receive any of these items as gifts. Yes, the necklace is overvalued, but it’s definitely better quality than you’d pick up at Zara or Urban Outfitters. All the stones are carefully set and not loose like they often are in necklaces like this.

If there is still an inventory of them after a few weeks, Popsugar has been known to offer them half off on their website.

I feel the same way. I like the box a lot. I’m a lady with a larger frame, and I love the inclusion of a good statement necklace instead of the delicate stuff that looks lost on me. I’m also intrigued by the poncho. The glasses are nice, the Foreo is something I’ve been wanting to try, and skin oil is always appreciated. The only thing I’m unsure of is the pallet. I don’t know how well I can pull off those colors.

I am kind of bummed I spent the money… I hate that they gave 3 spoilers which was basically the full worth of the box and then threw in some little junk items. :/ why do I do this to myself every time… I have gotten limited boxes for years and this one is a total bust for me .

I was not excited to see the Luna Play as I just got one in Beauty Fix and really didn’t care for it. It just dawned on me that mine might be defective! I have to hold the button down for it to work and for that reason alone it is difficult to use. Is it supposed to be an actual power button or do you have to hold it down the whole time?
