PopSugar Must Have Special Edition Summer Box (2014)

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

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.  Click here to learn more about the regular PopSugar Must Have Box subscription.  Use code REFER5 to save $5 off your first box!

  1. I love seeing what’s in the PopSugar boxes, especially the special edition or resort boxes! I can’t order one in Canada, but I feel like I get to open one when I watch your videos! Enjoy all your new goodies, Jen!

  2. Jen, i love your posts, girl, but i honestly cannot fathom how you can claim to be so concerned with “animal-friendly” products yet openly eat foie gras as often as you do. It’s far too contradictory to not be noticeable xxx

    1. I was curious about the horn necklace which is why I brought it up. It’s not actually made from horn, which makes sense. I have never claimed to be a perfect person who strictly abides by all socially accepted standards. I strive to stay true to my own moral guidelines and not worry so much about how others may perceive my choices.

      1. So, let’s be personable and not use PR-speak here.

        What you’re saying is that animal welfare is not a priority in your set of “moral guidelines,” and you would rather have the freedom to be a glutton and eat whatever you like (including a food which involves force-feeding of animals in a factory and has been banned in several states and countries) without thinking about the ethics of what you’re doing? And you’d rather everyone just shut up and leave you alone to do it?

        OK, gotcha!

        1. I’m pretty sure I am allowed to choose for myself what I eat and wear just as you are allowed to do the same for yourself. I don’t question what choices you make and I would appreciate it if you did not so rudely question mine.

          1. I’m with you on that Jen, I don’t eat meat and despise animal cruelty but you know we live in a very cruel world and you can’t take responsibility for everything

  3. Thanks so much for giving us the opportunity to win this amazing pop sugar box! I love that pouch and it would be the perfect staple for the summer!

  4. You should do a make up tutorial! Your skin is glowing and loved the eyeshadow and lipgloss you were wearing!

  5. I’m sorry. I’m new and totally addicted to your vlogs. (I’m totally binge-watching them! LOL) I just watched “Pop Sugar Must Have Summer Edition Box” and I’m trying to enter the contest by clicking on the link above that says “a Rafflecopter giveaway” but it’s is just showing me how to sign up if I want to conduct my own contests. Can you double check the link? Am i doing something wrong? Thanks!!!

    1. It appears to be working properly. Try quitting out of your browser and opening up the website agin. That usually does the trick!

  6. Thanks for sharing with all of us, both in your video and by ordering an extra box! Very generous of you. I wonder if all the people hating on you about what you eat, etc. . . are still entering the contest?! I am willing to bet they would be happy to take your gift after giving you a hard time. I never heard you say you were against eating meat, etc. . . Good answer above BTW! Hold your head high and continue to shine, you are a lovely, talented and smart young woman and I am so impressed with how you have handled all that has been thrown at you.

  7. This is the first “open box” video that I’ve watched, and I just LOVE that you open the box right there with us! Thank you so much for sharing with us, and I can’t wait to see what you think of some of the products after you’ve used them for a while!

  8. I am from Pa originally and lived in Mundelein( outside of Chicago) for 3 year – I am also sei new to watching you. Maybe a few months I think I have been watching.

  9. Hi Jen,
    I love watching your videos, you are so sweet. I would love to win the resort box, everything you got in yours is really cool.
    Thank you for all that you do,

  10. I love Popsugar! Unfortunately, I was unable to purchase the special edition this time, so I am so excited to be able to try to win one! I am crazy about the necklace, especially! Thank you so much for the opportunity! Really enjoy your YouTube channel!! Also, I’ve been wondering, is your dog Shih Tzu?

  11. Okay, sorry! Just saw that she is a Shih Tzu. I have a red and white one and he is my child! Lol. So cute, smart, and funny! If yours is like mine though, also very stubborn! He cracks me up!

  12. I just looked at Winnie’s page. She could be my Barkley’s sister! They are the same color and have the same markings! Sorry, I just have never seen one that looked so much like my baby! I keep his hair short now, though, because it is hot in the South, and he has always hated being groomed. Okay, last post! Promise! Lol
