Choice #1: Rachel Pally Reversible Clutch in Bloom or Paradise OR Summer & Rose Striped Tote with Black Stripes or Blue Stripes
Rachel Pally Reversible Clutch in Bloom – Retail Value $60
(You can pick this or the Paradise Print)
This clutch measures 10.25″ across, 6.5″ tall when folded and 11.75″ tall when unfolded.
The teal side is made of vegan leather and the print is canvas.
It’s lined with polyester and is lead-free, and there is a pocket inside.
Summer & Rose Striped Tote with Black Stripes – Retail Value $54
This is a lightweight canvas tote with rope handles and faux leather accents. And it is lined with two pockets:
I love that it has a zipper closure, too. A very practical beach bag! Here it is in hand to give you a better sense of scale:
And here is the blue stripe version:
It’s easy to wear over your shoulder, and the fabric is lightweight. (For reference, this isn’t as heavy duty as the canvas from this Baggu bag.)
Choice #2: Grace & Stella Bath Bombs – 4 Pack OR MYTAGALONGS Hot/Cold Pack
Grace & Stella Bath Bombs – Retail Value $16
These bath bombs are individually wrapped and ingredient-conscious. They smell fab, too!
The set includes:
- Energize (Grapefruit & Mandarin)
- Wellness (Fig & White Peach)
- Good Vibes (Red Rose)
- Keep Calm (French Lavender)
My TagAlongs Hot & Cold Gel Pack – Value $15
What a practical fitness item! (And I think this is the cutest heat pack I’ve ever seen!)
It’s freezable and microwavable, so it works for both heat and cold therapy.
Choice #3: Spongelle Body Wash Infused Buffer in French Lavender OR Daily Concepts Hair Towel Wrap (Only annual subscribers have a choice on this set of items.)
This is one of my favorite subscription box beauty discoveries!
If you aren’t familiar with Spongelle, you are in for a treat! It infused with body wash, and the sponge is firmer than your typical bath pouf, so you get exfoliation added in, as well! (And it should last for at least 14 uses!)
Daily Concepts Your Hair Wrap Towel – Retail Value $18
I love these hair wrap towels! I first tried one thanks to the Summer Box of Style, and they are great!
To use it, you put it on your head, then wrap up the bottom part to hook onto the button at the top.
It’s a soft and absorbent fabric (100% Polyester) that is designed to help your hair dry faster.
I also like these towels for keeping hair masks/treatments in place. I’ve slept with this towel on with mixed results, too. (Depending on how much you toss and turn, it may or may not stay on overnight!)
Choice #4: tarte Double Duty Beauty leave your mark eyeshadow palette OR tarte tarteist glossy lip paint in “obvi” & tarteist quick dry matte lip paint in “salty” (Only annual subscribers have a choice on this set of items.)
tarte Double Duty Beauty leave your mark eyeshadow palette – Retail Value $30
Obviously, you can’t go wrong with tarte, but if you signed up as an annual subscriber and are debating which tarte set to go for – I’d say go for the palette.
For starters, it is super cute!
But more importantly, the colors are stunning. Excellent pigment, a great mix of matte and shimmer shades, easy to blend, and very little fallout.
Here are the shades swatched:
And if you sign up for an annual subscription you’ll be able to pick between this palette or this set of two tarte lippies:
tarteist quick dry matte lip paint in “salty” – Retail Value $20
The formula is really lightweight, dries quickly, and it is mostly smudge proof immediately. It has a matte finish, and the pigment is fab, too.
(Swatched in lower photo.)
tarte tarteist glossy lip paint in “obvi” – Retail Value $20
This is a pale rosy shade with good pigment and a glossy finish.The formula is moisturizing and non-sticky, too. The color is a little more light than I usually go, but this is great for a no-makeup look.
Here it is swatched beneath the matte lip paint:
And here are the non-choice items that will be in all boxes:
Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask – Retail Value $30
This mask is free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates – and it is safe for color treated hair!
There are two ways to use this mask – let it sit on your hair for 5-10 minutes after massaging it into your roots, then rinse out. Or for deeper hydration, cover your hair with a plastic shower cap and sit under a dryer, applying direct heat for 30 minutes, then rinse.
I tried the 5-10 minute version, and I could definitely feel a difference in the softness of my hair after using it.
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate – 1.7 oz Value $75
(Good to know for swapping – this item has an inner foil seal.)
I’ve sampled this a few times before thanks to subscription boxes, and I love it.
First, it’s a super quick-use beauty product. You only need to use it for 30 seconds (and you can leave it on for up to two minutes) and apply it twice a week. And it’s paraben, sulfate, and phthalate free!
The exfoliant particles are super fine, so it’s gentle on my skin, and I love the cinnamon scent, too. And the best part? It left my skin feeling super soft and smooth.
Homemade by Ayesha Curry Ceramic Mug – Value $16
(All subscribers will receive this exact design.)
This cute mug is 15 oz and microwave and dishwasher safe! And “I’d rather be in bed,” really speaks to me!
Free People Understated Leather Eyemask – Retail Value $40
(You’ll receive this in mint or the grey pictured here.)
This is a vegan leather sleep mask filled with a removable cooling insert. The opposite side is a soft fabric so it’s comfortable to wear:
And here is the removable cooling insert that you can pop in the fridge:
Verdict: I think this is the best Editor’s Box I’ve ever seen. I love how many choices you get, too! Depending on what you pick, the value is anywhere from $276-$295. With the MSA10 coupon, you can get this box for $39.99 or just under $5 an item!
