We have the first spoilers for the Summer POPSUGAR Must Have box! And both are selection items! If you are already a subscriber, you can log in to your account to select which options you want. And if you are a new subscriber, you’ll be able to pick your items after you subscribe!

New subscribers can use coupon code MSA20 to save $20 off of the Summer POPSUGAR Must Have box, too! (Regularly $75 a box.)

Here’s the first spoiler:

Tofino Towel – You pick the pattern

Tofino The Mathea Towel – Retail Value $64.99


No matter which limited-edition towel you choose, you’re about to take your beach visit to a whole new level. Both of these designs are made with 100 percent cotton terry velour. The plush top is so soft, you’ll never want to get off of it. The Mathea towel was made in collaboration with teenage surf phenom Mathea Olin. She plans to make a run at earning a spot on the Canadian surf team for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The Maverick towel was designed for the free spirit at heart. It was inspired by the local Tofino landscapes, which include big waves, tall mountains, and adventurous terrains. So, which towel best matches your personality?

Here I am holding it up to give you a better look at the full pattern:

This towel is 100% cotton, 37.4 inches by 66.9 inches, wash separately, cold water, hang dry.

Tofino The Maverick Towel – Retail Value $64.99

These towels are so plush and soft! I also love that the fringe is twisted so that you get the accent without having to worry about it fraying.

And here is the second spoiler:

Seafolly Bronte Sunglasses – You pick the color

Seafolly Bronte Sunglasses in Blush

(You get to pick between this blush color or a slate blue color.)


The name of these sunglasses is derived from one of Australia’s most beautiful beaches, and it’s clear to see why — they’re so stylish. The classic round shape with a keyhole nose bridge is flattering on all face shapes, so they look cute on everyone. They’re incredibly well-made, so you’ll be wearing these shades for years to come.

Here they are on:

Seafolly Bronte Sunglasses in Blue Stone

I subscribed, but I was only allowed to customize my towel preference. There wasn’t an option to customize the sunglasses or add-ons. Has anyone else run into this?

Thank you


Sarah, maybe that means they’re all out of one color and everyone after this point get whatever color is left.


have both fff and musthave, have to say the musthave have better quality of the products, and after received the spring box, I cant tell the value is there. I am excited for the summer box!


I really hope they give out more spoilers before billing. They did the same thing in the spring and the stuff they didn’t reveal was a real let down.

Jazzy Wazzy

Unfortunately they’ve already started billing 😩


Does anyone know what’s in this box other than sunglasses and a towel? Considering signing up but not when these are the only two items spoiled


Will we be getting any more spoilers @LizCadman ?

Do we know when this box will start shipping?


I hope that it starts shipping soon! I need it for my next vacation!


I just heard back from PS that it won’t be shipping until the end of May. They also mentioned that billing was on the 15th of May. Seems like a long time to wait. 🙁


LOVE the sunglasses. I already have a pair of pink sunglasses, so I picked blue, and I’m super excited about them.


REALLY wish I could pick both towels instead of those glasses. I’m overloaded on sunglasses and these are weird looking. I did choose blush though. I received some sunglasses from GlossyBox awhile back as an incentive and they are a blush color which I find attractive.


I agree with everybody. We just received subglasses which I gave away. Now another pair which I don’t like at all. Popsugar- change this for something else.

Shelby Lillian Smith

When are they billing us for this?


I have trouble understanding how “luxe box” just means…lots of sunglasses and towels? Are rich people just really damp?


I love my round Tofino towel from the Summer Limited Edition box back in 2016 (the box that also had the Hat Attack straw bag and a Corcicle Canteen.) I’m excited that this box has another Tofino towel, the quality is great and I love the patterns to choose from. I’m considering signing up for another box just for another towel. The glasses look great to me, I loved the Box of Style Bonnie and Clyde sunglasses with a similar look. I’ve heard good things about the brand, as well. Hoping the rest of the box is just as great as these spoilers.


My thoughts exactly! I chose the polka dot towel and the blush sunglasses! I loved the spring box so much and I am sure that I will love this box as well!

Kathy Piccini

Ha. Definitely in the minority here but I LOVE the sunglasses. But I’ve ALWAYS been a fan of round sunglasses. And these are good quality. A friend gifted me a pair in a blush color very similiar to these (“Clyde & Bonnie” glasses). They look fantastic on me. The towels ok in blue. The glasses in blue stone. Im seriously considering resubscribing


Minority yes but I love those glasses too……… I picked the polka dot towel with blush glasses but I LOVE THEM enough to want to go in and get the blue with blue towel too…. 🙂


I selected the polka dot towel and the blush sunglasses, but I’m not sure that I need either. The sunglasses look cool on the model, but I doubt they’d look good on my face shape, so I will likely swap them. I listed the towel for swap too, but I will keep it if I can’t find something I like more. My swap page is linked with my name if anyone is looking for these items.


I miss what this box used to be. They need some original ideas for summe—as some here have suggested. Not more towels and sunglasses. I check in now and then to see if there’s anything to tempt me to renew my subscription. So far, no…


I’ve been subscribed for years but had to cancel for now. The sunglasses are hideous and the towel is cute but I don’t need anymore towels. It’s sad because I love popsugar. If it goes on sale in the future then maybe I’ll get this box.


I love both of the towels and both of the sunglasses. I am having the hardest time making a choice between them. They are all so pretty its really hard to decide.


Judging by the comments here you should have no problem finding tons and tons on the swap site and online auction sites.


Their quarterly boxes have been such misses compared to their LE boxes and monthly boxes in the past. Switching to quarterly was supposed to make the company better, but it’s had the opposite effect. I’m skipping so many quarterly boxes whereas I would hardly ever skip any LE boxes or monthly boxes. They need to revamp their curation team.


I think they just changed their curation and target. I only ever bought about 3 of the monthly boxes and this is the first quarterly box that’s a miss for me (and I’ve been paying full price for them).


I’m happy the towel is at least cotton. The polka dot print is cute and neutral enough for me. The shades are a hard pass. I have prescription lenses and even if I didn’t want to see, those frames look like they’d be awful on my long face. 😐 I guess it will depend on the other spoilers.


Well, my wallet is completely safe from this box. There is literally nothing that appeals to me, except maybe the towel, but those sunglasses are fugly. I always hear how awesome Popsugar is, but I’ve never seen anything that makes me want to subscribe. But with the amount of subs I have that’s probably a good thing lol.


Those sunglasses will not be flattering on anyone. They look like a gag gift. Or something you would give in a who can find the most tacky gift themed gift exchange.


the PSMH monthly box was great – of course some better than others but it was a fun treat to receive every month, so miss it….things really changed when they switched to quarterly and much prefer the old PSMH

those sunnies are not my fave either!


I do want a new pair of sunnies but those glasses are awkward looking. I do like the look of that towel. However the retail values seem a bit silly for those items..This box is going to determine if I cancel PS for next season. I hated the Spring box, so we’ll see if the rest of the box is any good.


FYI if anyone is interested, the Seafolly Bronte Sunglasses are $29.97 at


Lol that’s hilarious!


I cancelled after Spring box. I’m using the vooray bag for the first time today. It holds a lot. I think the inner magnetic handle straps.

As for this Summer box, so glad I cancelled. The towels look great, but since I have 10 unopened new towels from other boxes last year…not needed. Lol. The glasses look utterly fabulously stylish, but not on human faces. These are NOT a flattering style. Plus as we pointed out, we have sunglasses and towels from other sub boxes. And not to mention there are a lot of us who wear prescription. And my optometrist pointed out that many fashion glasses cause more harm than good as they trick your eyes into letting in harmful rays. He said it’s actually better to go without sunglasses than to wear ones that let in the harmful rays.

Pat Greene

Meh. PopSugar was one of my earliest cancelations. I’ve used the items I’ve gotten in their boxes – a bowl holds fruit on my kitchen table, an umbrella is on the hook in my entryway, a candle in my living room. Gifted others. Would I have BOUGHT any of these items at full price? No, not even at heavily discounted prices. I have just never found any of their stuff to be distinctive or remotely innovative in style. Overpriced. Over-hyped. Perfect for today’s culture.


Thank for the spoilers – certainly don’t need another pair of sunglasses and another beach towel (even thought I live in FL). Too many subscriptions lately with those items. Will wait for Fall box now.


I really like these spoilers. The glasses are very trendy & cool.i picked blue. And the towel is really nice, picked maverick, the pattern is bold & matches the sunnies. I have the blue ruana from fff a few summers ago. That would prob. look cool all together! I’m excited to see what else is in the box.


I see millions of these ridiculous sunglasses in future mystery boxes for the next 5 years lol
