POPSUGAR 2016 Limited Edition Must Have Summer Box Review
It’s here! My 2016 POPSUGAR Limited Edition Summer Must Have Box is finally here!

If you aren’t familiar with them, POPSUGAR Must Have Box is an exciting box full of fun, must-have picks across fashion, beauty, home decor, fitness, and more, which is delivered to your door on a monthly basis. Monthly boxes feature full-size products and premium items including tried-and-true classics, celebrity favorites, and brands consumers have yet to discover worth over $100!

They also offer special edition boxes on a seasonal (sometimes more) basis. This review is on the 2016 POPSUGAR Limited Edition Summer Must Have Box. POPSUGAR described the box as follows: If “cool for the Summer” is your seasonal mantra, then our Summer box is your perfect fit – curated to include the trendiest accessories that’ll keep you refreshed, stylish, and prepared for the heat, this box will keep you cool in more ways than one. Prepare to turn heads as you post up poolside!

The POPSUGAR Limited Edition Summer Must Have Box shipped via FedEx Smart Post. The box was supposed to ship by June 15th, however, many boxes (mine included) didn’t meet that deadline. As compensation for the delay, POPSUGAR sent subscribers who were affected a 4-pack of Govino wine glasses (you can see mine here). I wish they would have been more upfront / clear about the delay, but I am happy to have my box in hand.

As usual with the Limited Edition boxes, everything was individually wrapped which makes it super fun to open.

The POPSUGAR Limited Edition Summer Must Have Box included the following items:

~Twisted Stripe Tote by Hat Attack ($95): This bag is HUGE! We received a tote bag in last summer’s Limited Edition Box as well (you can see that review here), but I think I like this one better.  It’s more “beachy” if that makes sense? It’s made out of woven straw and has leather handles.  The only thing (if anything) I would change would be to make the interior lined because I don’t want to get anything snagged on this.  It’s super roomy and can easily hold everything you need for a day at the beach.  Plus some.

~The Chesterman Circle Towel by Tofino Towel Co. ($74.99): Yes!  I am obsessed with this towel.  When they released it as a spoiler, I knew this box was going to be fabulous.  It’s super soft (100% cotton) and the pattern, colors, pretty much everything about it is amazing.  It’s nearly 5 feet in diameter and can easily be used as a beach towel, a picnic blanket or even as a blanket / wrap to keep the chill away.  Both of my kids and my two dogs fit easily on here.

~Londontown Lakur Royal Wedding ($16): Royal wedding is a pretty summery coral shade.  Londontown polishes are Vegan, Gluten-free, Cruelty-free, and 9-Free.  I currently have the NCLA polish on my nails that was in the June POPSUGAR Box, but after the holiday weekend, I am going to switch it up to this polish.
POPSUGAR 2016 Limited Edition Must Have Summer Box Review
~Corkcicle Canteen (16oz) ($27.95): I was hoping this would appear in a subscription box!  This 16oz canteen is supposed to keep drinks cold up to 25 hours (or even longer if they have ice in them) or hot for up to 12 without freezing or sweating. I have a Yeti knock-off cup I love, but it doesn’t have a tight lid like this one does so this will be better to throw in my bag.  I am thinking about getting a monogram decal to put on this.  Any etsy shop suggestions?

~Herbivore Botanicals Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist ($32): This hydrating mist is to be used after cleansing (before moisturizing) and contains coconut water, Bulgarian rose, and hibiscus. It’s super refreshing and smells great.

~Sugarfina Ice Cream Cones ($7.95): I don’t know what else to say about these other than that they are good.  Real good.  The website says the flavors are “strawberry, raspberry, and vanilla waffle cone”, but to be real, they all taste the same to me.  The boys said they tasted different, but they liked ALL of the flavors.

All totaled the POPSUGAR Limited Edition Summer Must Have Box had a value of $253.89. That’s not a huge value (at least not compared to some of their other limited edition boxes), but I really liked this box!  I will use every single thing in it and it just feels like me.

What do you think of the POPSUGAR Limited Edition Summer Must Have Box?  Did you get one?  Has it arrived yet?  This box is now sold out, but if you are interested in a monthly POPSUGAR subscription, you can use coupon code “MUSTHAVE5” to save $5 off your first box.

    I was one of the one’s affected by the late shipping, I sent them an e-mail, they just sent me an e-mail saying they would let me know what Popsugars is going to do to make this right. Past that, I never heard or received anything, will I just randomly recieve the wineglasses in the mail? Or should I send them another e-mail? As far as the box goes, I pretty much love everything in the box, especially the Tofina towel, its beautifully made and I will get a lot of good out of this. A new find for me is the Herbivore Rose Hibisus Coconut Water, this is a fantastic toner, i’ll be buying more of this, when I run out. The tote, by HatAttack is huge, prefect for a family, to carry everyones towels to the beach. But, my kids are grown, so its just too big for me. This bag is very nice, but I agree it would have been a much nicer bag, if it was lined. Over all, I really do like the Summer Popsugar Limited Edition Box, this was my first Popsuger box.

      I think they will just send it. I never got an actual e-mail anything was coming! It’s probably on it’s way. are you signed up for FedEx tracking alerts?

    I’ll make you a monogram, if you want 🙂 You’ve got the best blog around, and I spend an awful lot of my “hmm, what should I do today?” tim here 😛 Send me an e-mail if you want!

    If not, I suggest Minga Mae’s Boutique on etsy and facebook. I love everything I’ve gotten from her!

    You probably can use the S’well Chalk pens for the bottle. ( I don’t have mine yet to try – we have a bunch of S’wells here and my daughter 18 writes us notes on our bottles.

    Get your logo made into a decal!

    Yaa, your box finally arrived! Nice review and I love all the pictures and your cute models on the beautiful towel. Happt Fourth of July??

  • Kam

    I kind of wish I had ordered this! I’m in love with the towel, it would probably be a sign of the apocalypse if I won your giveaway so I’ll have to stalk it on ebay. Really don’t want to pay 50$ for one though. Kicking myself for not just springing for the box, lol.
