Coastal Co. Spring 2019 Review

When you first go to sign up for Coastal Co., you’ll be met with a short survey to let them know your sizing and physical features so they can send the perfect items for you. They also take your location/climate into account when selecting items.

Coastal Co. Style Profile

Complexion, face shape, top size, bra (cup) size, waist size, ring size, and shoe size will all go into your profile.

Their info card right has a lovely sunshine + palm tree photo on one side and a short intro with the items and their prices on the other side.

Saltwater Luxe Pipa Coverup, O/S – Listed Value $75.00

This first item of the Spring box is this ultra appropriate floral coverup. It’s 100% rayon and really lightweight so it’s perfect to add a little touch of soft color to my otherwise neutral wardrobe. I can wear this as the temperature starts to warm up one I ditch my heavier jackets. This piece is exclusive to Coastal Co so it can’t be found on their site although there are other items with the same pretty print. It’s not sized but when laid flat measures about 22 inches across and 31 inches from neck to bottom hem. I’m 5’3″ and wear a women’s medium top/size 29 waist jeans and it’s quite roomy on me. There’s no included belt but you can certainly use one to add more of a shape to this flowy number. If you find yourself at the beach, you can also use this as a coverup to protect your shoulders from the hot sun while looking chic. (There’s a photo of me modeling this at the bottom of the review.)

Vagabond Goods Bali Palm Bikini Bag – Estimated Value $28.00 (Similar here)

They call this 9.5 x 7.5-inch pouch a “bikini bag” since you can toss your wet swimsuit in this lined palm-print case to safely transport. Since I’m not a huge swimmer, I’ll be calling it a makeup or toiletries pouch! There’s a ton of space to fit my beauty routine for a trip and since it’s meant for wet items, an accidental spill shouldn’t be an issue. The palm pattern has a bright watercolor vibe with blues, greens, and pinks that awakens me from my Winter hibernation.

Kolohe Make Waves Ring – Retail Value $30.00

If I’m going to wear jewelry, it’s usually a ring. A minimal, silver ring at that, so this is perfect for me. It’s made of fine silver which won’t turn your finger green and is handmade in Hawaii by Rose Wong and her sisters. This simple ring features a single wave gracing your finger and happens to be adjustable to fit sizes 5-8. It is quite bendable and delicate though, so I”ll be sure to treat it as such.

Chaser Island Vibes Tank, size medium – Listed Value $48.00 (Similar here)

Winter’s box brought us a soft sweatshirt while Springtime brings this soft navy blue tank from Chaser. This one is also exclusive to the box so you can’t find the “Island Vibes” Pineapple graphic anywhere else. It’s made in the USA of 100% cotton and has a looser fit which appeals to me rather than a tight fitted tank. My other favorite part- there’s no irritating tag at the neck, just the printed brand name, and size info. The graphic isn’t really my taste, but this could easily become a sleep shirt if I don’t pass it on to a friend.

Laguna Salt Company Hand Crafted Sea Salt “Paradise Duo” – Listed Value $19.00

Laguna Salt Company Hawaiian Black Sea Salt, 3 oz. – Buy 2 oz. for $6.49

Oh my, yes. I love Laguna Salt Company! They make the greatest salts with fun infusions and blends. This one is a “combination of solar evaporated Pacific sea salt and activated charcoal”. The charcoal apparently “brings out the natural salt flavor and adds nutritional value”, but more importantly looks really cool and goth. 😀 Like charcoal toothpaste, this salt will leave black powder in its path but the coarse chunks of salt taste so delicious. I am a big salt fan if you can’t tell, so I’m excited to use this in recipes to make everything look a little cooler. I’m thinking that this will come in handy for Halloween recipes!

Laguna Salt Company Sweet Hibiscus Sea Salt, 3 oz. – Buy 2 oz. for $6.95

I’ve actually had this variety before and I simply adore its subtly floral hibiscus scent. I don’t taste the hibiscus as much as I thought I would, but its beautiful lavender pink color will spruce up boring looking dishes!

Havaianas Slim Flip Flops in Rose Gold – Retail Value $26.00

One of the most exciting items for me are these Havaianas flip flops. I already own a grey pair and always feel the need to have them on hand in the summer. They essentially become my “summer slippers” while I’m in my house or even while I’m out running errands when it’s just too hot for shoes! The pair they’ve sent are rose gold and I have to admit I am enjoying. Since you provide your shoe size when signing up, these actually fit instead some boxes that send one size fits all type items that may or may not actually fit. They’re airy and light so they’re perfect for warm weather and are honestly the most comfortable flip flops eve due to their soft cushiony soles. Great item!

Cocovit Coconut Water Hydro-Mist – Retail Value $16.00

The final item in this delivery is a 1-ounce bottle of Cocovit’s coconut water hydro-mist. A wonderful way to refresh your face during a long day with hydrating and amazing-smelling coconut! Made with coconut water, witch hazel, aloe vera, and cocovít coconut oil, along with dead sea salt and honeysuckle flower extract, this mist is ridiculously luxurious feeling. While it’s great to use as a toner after cleansing, I think I’ll be keeping this at my desk at work as a little 3 pm pick-me-up! If you love coconut, this is the face mist for you!

Here I am rocking the coverup over a simple camisole with my new flip flops! Dinner on the lanai, perhaps?

Verdict: Coastal Co. has sent yet another beautifully curated box that brings the vibes of the beach without having to be physically near the sun or sand. They always deliver great brands large and small that make quality goods and have a great value for the cost of the box. This time around, I received seven items that have a total retail value of $242!! That’s more than double the $103.95 cost. My faves are the coconut water hydro-mist, coverup, flip flops, and salt, but everything in this quarterly box is pretty stellar. Highly recommended for beach lovers or those who wish they could be closer to a tropical location all year round.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today?  Yes, although yours may be different than mine based on your preferences and location.

  1. You look absolutely beautiful in the cover up and the tank.

  2. Your review was awesome and funny too. Great sense of humor. And made me want to keep reading your interesting review. Kudos to you….love the sandals.

    • Thanks, Bella! I try! 🙂

  3. Everything looked great on you! Loved your styling 🙂

    • Thank you, Belle!!

  4. Marne, I love your mani!

    • Thanks, Marion! I love a matte top coat. It looks especially great on blush tones. 🙂

  5. I’m sorry but that’s way over valued items! The box is over priced and so are the items!

    • The items aren’t over-valued, they’re actual RV. Sure, the cost of this sub might be high, but compared to the cheaply made “collab” items you’d get from similarly priced subs, this one is by far a better value (at least for me). I have and/or will use everything in this box. The coconut spray might be my favorite, but I’m really looking forward to wearing the cover up thing in nicer weather.

      This was my 3rd box and I have yet to be disappointed. Normally I don’t do such high-cost subs but this one always feels worth it to me.

    • I agree with Brittany. Way overpriced.

  6. I would get this if it was half the price. I used to live near the beach and miss it so much! I even got a beach scene, with palm tree, tattoo since I miss it so! Great curation this season! If only it was in my budget…

    • I agree as well. Those prices are unreal. $75. for a robe with no belt and that is what it is a robe. Those shoes are in TJ Maxx all the time here in Vegas for $13.99. The spices are easily found as well for much cheaper. $48. for a sleeveless tank? No thanks this is no value in my opinion.

      • I also agree. Overpriced.

  7. I love this sub but can’t bite the bullet, it is rather pricey and I’m petite so fear all the clothes would just be way too long. Lovely review.

  8. I loved every single item in this box! I hope the summer box will be great! This was my first box. Great Review!

  9. I absolutely adore this box!! The bikini bag is now my sunscreen/pool bag and the mist is incorporated into my nightly routine!! It feels like summer in a spray ☀️
