  1. Please review!

  2. Please review!! It’s pricey, but I’d love to see what you think before I take the leap.

  3. Please review this and oceanista. Both deserve to be featured.

  4. Ooh it looks really nice. Yes please review it.

  5. Omg yes. Hey question???? I feel like there are less and less reviews lately. Take this last email post with only one subscription box to review??? I’m sad !

  6. Yes, please!

  7. Yes! I would love to hear your thoughts on this subscription. I bought the summer box and was quite impressed with the quality of contents. The belly basket is currently holding towels and washcloths in our guest bath and looks so welcoming adding that luxe touch. I have the candle and matching colored jar of matchsticks on my own bathtub along with a jar of the same colored sugar scrub cubes from FFF. Together, they add to a phenomenal spa look with my bamboo accents. While the cocktail salt was a bit of hmm moment for me, I found that just rimming a glass for a bloody mary was basic so I sprinkled some over freshly steamed peel-and-eat shrimp. What a delicious wow factor!
    I am currently waiting for my Fall box to arrive which has already shipped!

  8. Yes! This looks like a really interesting box!

  9. Yes, please review this box. Also, I’ve made several requests for the “Confetti Collection” box to be reviewed.

  10. Definitely yes. I have been keeping an eye on this box since summer and am interested.

    I already get Oceanista and am expecting my 3rd box soon. It is fabulous and also needs to be reviewed. I also get California Found and Beachly/Coastal Co. Beach themed boxes are so fun and induce such relaxing stay-cation vibes!

    I agree that ALL subscription boxes need to be reviewed. I have also requested a few times for Kleverpark Box to be reviewed. It is an Italian skincare subscription, and I have gotten 2 boxes so far. I have enjoyed trying the multiple full-sized products in their bi-monthly boxes.

    • I love that you’re trying unique boxes. Maybe you could write a review for them!

    • I second wanting to see reviews for Oceanista! I just subscribed because I stumbled on them and fell in love with the past boxes and decided to take a chance on them. Hoping to see reviews for them soon – they seem like a better deal than this one.

  11. I would never spend this amount on this box, and I’m not a ‘beachy’ fan. However, I love to read all reviews. Carry on and review!

  12. Yes, I’m intrigued

  13. I’d love to see it reviewed. I live at the beach in a small beach villa and love the beach lifestyle! This might be a box where I gift a few things to guests that stay with us. Fun!

  14. For the coat and it being mystery items basically, I would want to spend my money on items I personally really want. But, I would read the reviews so, yes.

  15. I’m a So Cal beach girl and love all things beachy, so it’s a yes from me. But, I am also in the camp of commentators that feel like MSA should review boxes at least once, regardless of my personal preferences.

    One thing that might stop me from getting this box is the jewelry. I have so many allergies to metals (including gold and many types of silver) that I would love to see non jewelry options from lifestyle boxes. I know a lot of people don’t like FFF, but that is one thing they do do right. Offering an alternate item is one of the things that keeps me subscribed and happy. I think the price point for this box is acceptable, a little on the higher side, but a lot of current subscribers are saying the quality is really good. I’d be OK with paying it, if I could chose an item other than jewelry.

  16. Yes, please review it. I would also like to see The Beach Box (available through Cratejoy) reviewed. I LOVE all things beach and ocean.

  17. Yes, please review! I’m a beach girl and love this kind of sub. I get Beachly (formerly Coastal Co) on and off depending on spoilers, and have been happy with that, especially when I can get it discounted to $80 rather $100! Frankly, the pricepoint on this seems too high…I’d think it’d be more in the $75-$100 area rather than $119. At $119, I’d definitely only subscribe after seeing full spoilers, because that’s too much $$ to take a risk that there will be multiple things that aren’t of interest.

    Someone else mentioned Oceanista…would love to see that reviewed as well.

  18. With the other subscription boxes in this price range that I like, there’s no way that I could add another.

    My answer the question would be, “No.” I imagine there’s curiosity, but don’t see many people actually subscribing to it.

    • Little too expensive for me, but I would love to see a review. Oceanista box is a little more affordable, please review that one!

  19. Looking at their site, the summer box was most of the items pictured in the first picture. The straw/blue bag, earrings hanging off the shell, cocktail salt, candle, matches, and wax squares. Maybe had they thrown in the Turkish towel, a couple of awesome cocktail glasses, or a wax burner and tea lights, the $119 would make more sense to me. But review away, I love reading reviews to any and all boxes.

  20. When I first see a picture of a new box, I always determine how much I’d pay for this. I set my limit at $50 for this one. I missed. I have no interest in seeing this reviewed, however, a lot of people might be curious to see what’s inside.

  21. I’d say yes! I purchased the summer box and am now , happily, an annual subscriber. I was thrilled with the quality of the items in the summer box ,as well as the lovely attention to detail in the packaging . There was not a single item in the box that was more attractive to my teenage daughter than to me , everything was a keeper! If they keep this up, along with the super customer service I received, this will be my favorite box !

  22. Okay, is this box pricing itself out of the market or are alot of people actually buying?

    To me: I can’t sub to it. It’s out of what I can spend on boxes & I do get a lot of subs. It would have to be the only one for a month or two. I have 2 to 4 quarterly’s now, too. When you’re subbing FFF, Popsugar, RZBOS & Causebox… No more for me. That’s pretty much where I’m at right now. You’d have to beat out one of those four and all of them at this price point to get me. Does anyone else have this issue? Lol

  23. Judging from the pic, I’d say “yeah!” We count on your reviews, and it’s a platform for current subscribers to voice their concerns and praises.

  24. I would say no. I saw the Summer unboxing, and while the quality of the items was nice, IMO, they definitely weren’t $120 nice.

  25. Yes please review. The price point is a little steep so it would have to be an exceptional box.

    • Oceanista is an excellent box. I love ocean themes, so maybe do both? 😊

      • I got the Oceanista summer box. Love the ocean themes! 🙂

  26. Yes, Please!

  27. I believe almost all new subscription boxes need a chance to be reviewed. How are we to know if it isn’t reviewed? So yes, MSA, please give this one a chance.

  28. My answer will always be Yes to this question. The whole purpose of this website is to review sub boxes – so I think you should review all of them regardless of whether that box interests me or fits in my budget. I want to see reviews of all of them – even the ones that look ridiculous or overpriced. Go for it!

    • I couldn’t agree more!

    • Agree!

  29. Kind of high priced….I guess it would be interesting to see wha you get for that price.

  30. I would love to see it reviewed. I love all things beach-related. Although it would have to really blow me away to subscribe at that price. The spoiler isn’t very impressive to me personally.

    • I would love to see it reviewed. I’ve been watching for spoilers for the fall box.
