Popsugar Must Have Special Edition Resort Box

Rating: Love It!!!!
Cost: $100 (this box was special edition and is currently sold out)

My Popsugar Must Have Special Edition Resort Box arrived today. I wasn't expecting it until Tuesday, so I was so happy it showed up early. Shipping was delayed for some people, so I was happy mine shipped early. I didn't look at spoilers yet, so I had no idea what to expect. Here is the luxe Special Edition box it comes in.

"Imagine...if it were as simple as opening a box and feeling like you were on a magical getaway." 

When I opened it up it was wrapped in tissue paper and sealed with an enjoy sticker. Then when I ripped open the tissue paper everything was individually wrapped and I couldn't wait to dig in to see what was in there. These boxes always feel so luxe. I love that!!! It's like you received the fanciest gift from your most stylish friend and the theme of this box couldn't have come at a better time. I needed a tropical getaway.

The Popsugar Must Have boxes always come with an information card telling about everything included in the box. I put this aside, so I wouldn't be spoiled. I wanted to be surprised as I unwrapped each individual present.

Here is everything that was inside the box. Seven amazing items that I can't wait to tell you about and definitely can't wait to try. Before I go any further I need to say this has been my favorite Popsugar Must Have box to date. I will definitely use everything!!!

The first item included, was kind of spoiled by Instagram awhile ago, but I wasn't sure if it would be in the regular monthly box or the special edition box. The Sisco Berluti bracelet stack was designed exclusive for Popsugar and I love it!!! Great colors, designed with turquoise, brass, and labradorite stones. These 3 bracelets are timeless, yet fun and I can't wait to wear them!

The next item I also knew would be included, because Popsugar showed it in an email. I was excited about it then and love it even more in person! The Cuyana Turkish Towel I received has blue stripes, but I'm not sure if variations were sent out. I was so happy I received blue! The towel is made in Turkey from fine-grade cotton and bamboo. It's super light and ultra absorbent. It's so soft and the perfect size for a beach towel, too!!! It could also double as a picnic blanket, though I'd hate to spill any food on it.

The next item was Epicuren Discovery Tropical Lave. It's a body cleanser made from coconut oil, papaya extract, and other natural ingredients. Also, it can double as a shampoo. This must have been what made my box smell amazing. I can't wait to use this and feel like I've stepped into an exotic dream!

My favorite item in the box was R.B. of McD #2 Clutch, designed exclusive for Popsugar. I love getting pieces that were designed special for these boxes. And we received more than one. Score! The clutch is made from canvas and leather and comes in two different styles (according to the information card). I received the tan and navy, but you could also receive all navy. I'm so happy with the color I received. You can use it as a fold-over clutch or wallet. The leather is so soft and beautiful! Here's a video of different ways to carry the clutch. Mine didn't come with a chain, but I so need that! It's gorgeous!!! I'm already thinking as I go through this box that I need to plan my swimsuit and summer wardrobe around this box. Everything was so my style, and I couldn't be happier right now!!!!

The next item was Clark's Botanicals Cellular Lifting Moisture Mist. This is an anti-aging formula that delivers maximum hydration, minimizes wrinkles, helps heal sensitive areas, and firms the skin. I've never tried anything from this brand before, but if it does all of the above, I'm very excited about it!

The next item was the Santigolden Age: Double-Ended Limitless Eye Liner from Smashbox Cosmetics. One end is blue, the other is gold. I don't usually wear eye liner at all, but I really want to try this! There are tips on how to wear it on the Popsugar Must Have blog, so I'll be checking that out.

The final item included in the box was Salty Road Salt Water Taffy in Salty Caramel Apple. The all natural flavor is made from unique apple cider jelly and a secret blend of fresh spices. These sound delicious and though I haven't tried them yet, I'm sure they won't last long!

This box was definitely worth what I paid for it and I'm so excited about everything! Now I think I need to start shopping for a swimsuit ASAP. And I need to plan a trip to somewhere tropical! What did you love most about the Popsugar Must Have Special Edition Resort box?!?

  1. Kristie even the blue wrapping paper feels like a tropical getaway :-) I did not purchase this box but loved seeing the contents as like you I surely need a beach getaway by now! Now I do wish I went for the box! Seriously don't know where to begin! The clutch and bracelets would be pieces I would use on a regular basis; they are both absolutely gorgeous. The skincare/beauty stuff is high quality and would be a treat. I almost exclusively use Turkish towels for years ( purchased mostly in overseas trips) and know that they are so easy to use and amazing! Props to Popsugar for putting this together and to you for being smart to get it while you can haha. <3<3 XOXO, Elif

    1. Yes, this was definitely a box that I was completely satisfied with everything! I purchased before the spoiler email came out with the Turkish towel and when I saw that I knew I had made the right decision. If this is any indication of what the special edition boxes will be like going forward, I'll be ordering every one!!!

  2. I am green with envy - I really wish they shipped to Canada :( I love the clutch and they bracelet looks fantastic! I think this box looks awesome and I'm so happy you shared it! :)

  3. "I put this aside, so I wouldn't be spoiled." Ahh, yes! THAT is exactly what it is! I hate to look at that list myself and I wasn't quite sure why, and it always drove me crazy when I'd read reviews where people lovingly went over the info sheet like it was even better than the STUFFS. But that's exactly the thing--I don't want to read a list of my prezzies before I gets to sees thems!

    I had no idea that towel was so big! I love fabrics made from bamboo--towels and socks especially. Thanks for the great review!

  4. Oh. My. God. That Santigold Smashbox Eyeliner is AMAZING! I need to get that! :) I also love Salt Water Taffy... and I have to go to Maine to get it, they have a place that makes it fresh! Nothing better than fresh taffy :D

    I found and subscribed from MommySplurge and Unpack The Box’s Subscription Box Linkup, I’d appreciate if you checked my blog out too!

  5. I love that clutch! This is such a great box. I've never gotten any of the Pop Sugar specialty boxes because they're a bit out of my price range, but they always include such beautiful items.

  6. I love the blue striped towel. By far you lucked out by getting the very best one! It's so perfect!
