I love my PopSugar Must Have Box (which is a monthly subscription service where you receive a selection of full size and premium beauty, fashion, home, and fitness items), but I especially enjoy the seasonal special edition boxes they release. These tend to sell out quickly so I jumped on the chance to get the summer box as soon as I saw the launch email. The special edition boxes typically cost $100 a pop (as compared to the usual $39.95 each for the regular subscription) and include a nice variety of products centered around the special theme.
PopSugar’s summer theme box is designed to help you “get ready for the ultimate getaway.” There are seven different “summertime essentials”, including beauty, fashion, and home accessories in this box.
What’s in my Summer Box?
✻ Blue Tropics Pouch by Samudra – This large cloth zip pouch features a gorgeous palm photo print on one side and the words “Live Love Aloha” on the other. Pouches like this are great for popping into your beach/pool bag or even to organize items in your luggage. I love how roomy this one is at 11″ x 12.” Suggested Retail Price – $60
✻ Horn Necklace from Soixante Neuf Jewels – This statement necklace is so unique! It hangs beautifully on the body at 32″ long. In the video I expressed concern about the necklace being made from horn, but it turns out the label is just referring to the shape, not the material. It says on the jewelry website that the “horn consists of brass and genuine semi precious stones.” I received the white shell version. It is a beautiful piece! Suggested Retail Price – $155
✻ Tarte Lipsurgence Power Pigment in Tipsy – I am a huge Tarte fan, so you can imagine my delight when I saw two beautiful beauty products from them in this box. The power pigment version of Tarte’s Lipsurgence lip tint packs a punch! I am loving this sheer coral shade for summer. Suggested Retail Price – $24
✻ Tarte Cheek Stain in Tipsy – I also received the matching cheek stain. I don’t have a lot of experience using cheek stains and am excited to try out this product! Suggested Retail Price – $30
✻ Eliunt Extra Virgin Olive Oil – I love to eat salads for lunch in the warmer months dressed with olive oil and a squeeze of lemon and I can’t wait to see how this Eliunt extra virgin olive oil from Sonoma tastes! While it seems that you cannot purchase these individually, the collections of olive oils from all over the world make for a wonderful gift. Suggested Retail Price for a 3 Pack – $43.95
✻ SachaJuan Ocean Mist – I have yet to find a spray that’s meant to give you beach waves that actually works in my baby fine hair. I will definitely put this to the test and hope for the best because it smells amazing! Suggested Retail Price – $28
✻ Sisters of Los Angeles City Rocks Glasses – I love this set of four fun glasses made exclusively for PopSugar by Sisters of Los Angeles! They have glassware and other products available on their website for other cities, as well. Of course, I am partial to the Chicago designs. Suggested Retail Price – $45

I picked up an additional Summer Box as a special gift for one of you! The PopSugar Must Have Summer Giveaway will run until Wednesday, June 18, 2014 at 6 PM CT. The giveaway is open internationally. All entrants under the age of 18 must have parental permission to enter. One person will win the the PopSugar Must Have Special Edition Summer Box which includes all of the items I shared in this post.

Sometimes Rafflecopter experiences technical difficulties. If you can’t enter for some reason, try again later and it will probably work.
By my calculations this box is worth over $350! It’s definitely a splurge, especially considering that $100 is a lot to shell out when you don’t know what you’re getting, but I do enjoy the surprise factor.
