I’m sure all of you have heard of a subscription box. It’s a little box full of goodies that arrives at your doorstep every week or every month or in this case, every season. Subscription box services always intrigued me because it’s a consistent surprise and I love when I get to track a parcel that’s on it’s way! But then I started to think, will I really use the items in these boxes? Or will I just tuck them away after the initial excitement has worn off? The last thing I need is more sample size shampoos, and hair masks, and face exfoliants. Then in walks Rachel Zoe with her super chic Box of Style. This sleek black box is full of goodies (over $400 worth) that I will actually use all year long and the beauty products are full size! Oh Rachel Zoe you know what a girl wants in the season of sun and deliver it flawlessly. Read on to see what’s inside this summer box (+ a special discount code) and my thoughts on it all!
♥First up, a floral kimono by Helena Quinn (retail: $120)
This is a Rachel Zoe collaboration and Box of Style exclusive! A large floral print adorns this sheer kimono. I’d wear it with my swimsuit, on the beach, mai tai in hand. A matching belt can tie it closed or keep it open to flow in the beach breeze.
♥Raen Sunnies (retail: $150)
The perfect oversized pair of cat eye sunnies to add a little extra glam to your every day errands. Who doesn’t love an oversized pair of sunglasses? You get the option of black or tortoise with your box. I opted for classic black but it honestly took me a week to decide. I’ll wear them around town but keep my UV sunglasses for beach days. I’d rather not have he sun reflecting water damage my light eyes. Don’t forget, our eyes need protection too!
♥Compass necklace by The Brave Collection (retail: $115)
What I love most about this necklace is that it is handmade in Cambodia and a portion of its profits go to aid the fight against human trafficking. It always feels great when something you’d normally buy helps an important cause. This little gold compass on a shorter chain was the first thing I wore from this box. I really like the length of the chain but you could easily switch it out for a longer one if you wish.
♥Pom Pom Hat by Sole Society (retail: $27)
Pom poms and tassels are so hot right now! I flipped when I saw this hat had its own little pom pom trim. It has a wide enough brim to protect your face from the sun and its large enough to fit most.
♥Cream Blusher by BeautyCounter (retail: $37)
How I have not heard of this brand until now, I do not know. I really do try my best to use organic beauty products (I recently just switched to this mascara). After all, your skin absorbs a bit of everything you put on it… it’s not impermeable. You probably already know that most beauty products contain some harmful ingredients. The BeautyCounter has a “never list” that contains over 1,000 ingredients they will never use because they are just plain awful for our bodies and skin! One of the beauty items in this box is a cream blusher (that can double as a lippie) in a beautiful shade, hibiscus. Doesn’t that just sound sun kissed tropical?
♥ Sunscreen by BeautyCounter (retail: $18)
The most important accessory a girl can have this summer, SPF! If you don’t use sunscreen now, START! Especially in the summer, we have to protect our skin from those harsh UV rays. Now it is important to get some sun for vitamin D production (vitamin D = healthy bones) but 15 minutes in the sun is all it takes. The rest of the time we should be protected by SPF, wide brimmed (pom pom) hats, and shady patios ideally with a set of misters (the only way for me to sit outside in 115° heat). Long story short, wear your sunscreen kids. It’ll help you stay young!
