The Zoe Report Box of Style Summer 2016

Rating: Like It!!!
Cost: $100/quarterly box; $350 yearly subscription

I received my Zoe Report Box of Style Summer box last week, right before I left for a weekend trip! I was hoping I could use some of the items on my trip. I had looked at spoilers on the Zoe Report Box of Style website right before my box arrived, so I knew what was in it. I couldn't wait to see everything in person. I was excited about a few things in the box. These boxes really feel like a gift and they are perfectly curated for each season! 

The box was slightly different this quarter. Instead of the whole top lifting off, it now closes in the front with a magnet and I like it so much better! It also has "Hello Gorgeous" Printed on the top cover! Love it!!!

Everything is wrapped in black tissue paper like little gifts when you rip away the tissue paper! This box feels so luxe and is so much fun to open!

The Box of Style always includes an information booklet that is gorgeous! The pictures and styling are much better than any I take, so I love showing pictures of each page. I love reading these booklets from cover to cover each quarter. 

The Hero Item that was released early was the Luv AJ Pave Tusk Lariat & Open Crescent Ring Exclusive Set. Retail price $190. I love how delicate this set is. The ring fits perfectly and is my style! The necklace can be worn multiple ways, making it very versatile. On the website they mentioned wearing this with an open back blouse. I love that idea! I was very happy when this spoiler was released!

The next item included was also a spoiler. It was a Michael Stars Pastel Gardens Cover-up. Retail price $58. I was interested to see this in person. I wasn't crazy about the photos shown of it and I was hoping I'd like it better in person. I can picture sexy, beautiful, beachy women wearing this caftan! I am not that woman, and it doesn't suit my style. It's a bit out of my comfort zone and I'm not sure I'd reach for this. I tried it on with a black slip dress underneath as suggested and I'm just unsure of it. It also doesn't match my swimsuit and I rarely go to the beach, so I wouldn't wear it as a beach cover-up. It's beautiful, just not me!

I couldn't wait to see the YHF Los Angeles Cashton Brown Sunglasses in person. Retail price $40. These looked amazing on everyone on the website and they were tried on everyone at Box of Style to make sure they'd look great on all subscribers. Well, I have a tiny face and I was hoping I had finally found a cat eye that would work on my face. I tried these on immediately after opening the box and they look ridiculous on me. Way too large for my tiny face! I'm so sad, because I love these sunnies so much! I was looking forward to bringing these on my trip and instead they stayed wrapped up in the box.

Another spoiler that was released early was the OUAI Haircare Wave Spray. Retail price $12. I haven't tried this yet, but I will. My hair definitely lacks waves and volume, so I'm hoping this will give it some much needed texture.

The next item included was DreamDry The Dream Turban. Retail price $30. I don't own anything like this, and my hair dries fairly quick, but I will try this. I like the idea of using hair oil or conditioning treatment and wrapping my head in this. I also like the idea of sleeping with this on. I take showers before bed and wet hair is not comfortable for sleeping. I might enjoy this more than I thought I would! It feels really soft and nice and is supposed to be super absorbent.

The final product included was Juice Beauty Green Apple SPF 15 Brightening Moisturizer. Retail price $38. I love Juice Beauty products, so I was excited to get this! I love that this moisturizer has SPF for the summer too. I'm very pale, so I apply SPF frequently.

The Zoe Report Box of Style Summer box was perfectly curated! Unfortunately a few of the items aren't for me, but I still really liked this box. I wish I was a chic and glamorous girl that could use everything in this box! My yearly subscription is up and I need to decide if I will continue subscribing. I love how luxe and fun this box is, but it's really not quite my style. I'll need to think on it. And I'll probably wait to see what the Fall Hero Item is before making any decisions!
