Brown Sugar Box June 2020 "Picnic & Chill Edition” Review


Each Brown Sugar Box includes a mini magazine that highlights the theme of the box, lists the products included, and offers interesting and inspiring articles. This month’s box is the Picnic & Chill Edition and it is all about enjoying moments of happiness in the midst of change! I LOVE it! What an awesome and perfect theme for this month when everyone is learning to adjust to the drastic changes in our lives.


Izzy & Liv "Bloomin' Queen" T-Shirt - Listed Value $25

This vibrant orange shirt features a beautiful black queen with an afro of blooming flowers. I love this design because to me it feels like signifying the growth and birth of new beginnings; perfect for the summer. This shirt is super comfortable and absolutely adorable. The color makes me feel energized and cheerful just looking at it. Throw it on with a pair of jean shorts or your favorite leggings for a picnic in the park or a light workout. A fun look to get out of the house and actually breathe some of this fresh summer air. The fabric is light and cool, perfect for a hot day. My one recommendation — order a size up as this bright orange tee runs small and is 100% cotton.


Izzy & Liv "Picnic & Chill" Insulated Cooler Bag - Listed Value $30

This "Picnic & Chill" insulated cooler bag is great! I love that it is collapsible for each storage but opens up into a large enough size to carry a whole meal or a weekend's worth of premium "adult beverages." I love the handle, I love the pattern, and it even comes with a structured bottom insert that allows it to stand on its own. I cannot wait to use this cooler on my next outing. It's the perfect accessory for any picnic, cookout, or trip to the beach, and since that's about all I can do in my state right now, I'm happy to have all the convenient accessories. Subscribers could have received one of three colors: purple, pink, or teal.


Izzy & Liv "Pack It Up" Food Container, Set of 2 - Listed Value $15

Okay, this box is REALLY knocking it out of the park for me. These compact, silicone, easy-to-clean, dishwasher and microwave safe food containers are the greatest thing since sliced bread. They collapse down for easy storage, pop up, and are spacious enough to carry leftovers or a full meal. The clever food-inspired sayings on the lids just add to their charm. They are going to be perfect to fill with delicious snacks that I will keep cool in my "Picnic & Chill" cooler on my glamorous outdoor getaway; I'm very excited! Subscribers could have received one of two sets: blue and red or green and blue.


Izzy & Liv "Beats for the Heat" Speaker - Listed Value $20

This compact "Beats for the Heat" portable speaker is another great addition to this Picnic & Chill themed box. Most people already have a portable speaker, but let's be honest, you can always have one more. Whether you want to keep this one in the car for that next beach trip or out on your porch for convenient music play, this small but mighty speaker will bring a smile to your face as you enjoy your summer playlists. I'm definitely going to use this speaker during my outdoor pilates workouts this summer. Subscribers could have received one of five colors: gold, brown, silver, pink, or blue.


Izzy & Liv "Cool It Now" Neck Fan - Listed Value $20

This "Cool It Now" neck fan is lightweight, wireless, and rechargeable, with adjustable fans and various speeds. I think this is one of the coolest summer accessories I've ever seen. I don't know why I didn't know about this before, but now that I do, I don't know how I ever walked around in the summer heat without a set of personal fans blowing directly on my face. I love the purple color I received and I love the fact that the fan is rechargeable. The neck straps have a piece of adjustable hardware attached so that you can comfortably fit the fans around your neck and angle them in any direction you'd like. Subscribers could have received one of four colors: purple, pink, black, or lime green.


Izzy & Liv Masks! Masks! Mask! - Listed Value $7.99

I am ecstatic to receive this reusable, washable mask! This is the perfect addition to this month's box that is encouraging us to find happiness and enjoyment even with all the change going on around us. The mask is 100-percent polyester interlock fabric with comfortable ear straps and a playful design of women in colorful afros, which I didn't notice because I wore it upside down for the first day. I had honestly thought they were flowers. Wearing a mask isn't always fun, especially in the heat, but this fashionable, beautifully designed mask makes the thought less daunting. Subscribers could have received one of eight unique designs.

The Verdict: I think this month's Brown Sugar Box was AMAZING! They did a fabulous job with the theme and contents of this month's box. I am incredibly impressed. My absolute favorite item has to be the "Cool It Now" neck fan. It is just so unique and useful. I also love the "Picnic & Chill" insulated cooler bag. It's perfect for summer travels, and even though it's quite large, it can collapse and be stored in small spaces. I think the mask was another great and socially conscious addition to the box. We all need masks and bold colors and bright patterns encourage everyone to wear them so we can keep each other healthy and safe. Another unique and practical product was the "Pack It Up" food containers. I'm thrilled with how they collapse for compact storing. I love the silicone material and the cute little sayings on top; not to mention, they are dishwasher and microwave safe. The T-shirt was cute as always. I love the bright color and the symbol of growth the design represents. On top of all these other great products, there was also the "Beats for the Heat" speaker, a cute branded portable speaker that you can easily slip in your purse or backpack and jazz up a picnic or beach trip with some summer beats. All in all, I have to say, this has been my absolute favorite Brown Sugar Box thus far!

This is one of the best boxes I’ve gotten in a long time from any subscription. I can actually use everything. I totally agree with Amy about the new fan. It’s so lightweight and flexible I’ve used it while doing work both inside and outside.

Great Box! My box was a little different. I got a lunch bag instead of the cooler and a round towel instead of the bowls. But everything was beautiful as always.

This looks like a great box. I like that the only thing with obvious branding is the speaker, it makes the items seem like they’re better quality.
