Popsugar Must Have Limited Edition Review: Resort Box – March 2017

Subscription: PopSugar

POPSUGAR Limited Edition Resort 2017 Box Review

This is one of the yearly Limited Edition PopSugar boxes outside of the monthly subscription box service. 

 

Cost:

$100 clams

 

What You’re Getting:

Over $300 in retail value for resort, beach, backyard, hospital setting, or just lounging. Yada, yada, yada…

Resort always includes an over-inflated jewelry item but for the most part, the other items pan out.

The angry villager with over-inflated jewelry subscription box items appears.

 

Kick Back and Get Comfortable:

I am really impressed with the box presentation. This is my second LE PopSugar box and I liked the box from that design (Resort 2015). However, I had noted that the recent LE PopSugar boxes did not look as luxe in my opinion but apparently they have re-designed the actual boxes so that is a plus!

Let us begin this review with the over-inflated jewelry item that has my pitchfork raised!!!

CC Skye Coral Beaded Bali Necklace with Antique Charms

Alternative Fact Description:

CC Skye Coral Beaded Bali Necklace with Antique Charms – $95 Retail

Likely Fact Description:

Some rich girl line of mass produced coral colored cheap-seed-bead-level necklace with bulk-on-sale brass charms – .95

The only thing this necklace has over Zoe is that people actually can buy this item online and it is not some mass-produced “exclusive” to a subscription box item.

Even though it appears to be mass produced in China so “exclusive” to CC Skye 😉

My Pnut people are totally getting this necklace and I cannot wait for them to break it because I gots future sentimental plans for the brass “Made With Love” tags that I plan on attaching one charm to their better-than-subscription box jewelry that they will make when they level up in dexterity.

 

Here is my trusty assistant Pipsqueak modeling both spoiler items in this box!!!

 

 

Roberta Roller Rabbit Beach Shrug

Roberta Roller Rabbit Beach Shrug – $95 Retail

bahahaha speaking of “exclusive” to a subscription box item, this was the first spoiler of the box and it was what made be fall in love and purchase the box! Even though, tops on the website are not even $95 on sale so this is a good dealio!

If you know me I NEED a spoiler or major hints to purchase a box!!!

Roberta Roller Rabbit Beach Shrug

Roberta Roller Rabbit is a boutique brand that has several free-standing stores in Manhattan and various cities in the US and you may also find the brand in one of those fancy, schmancy boutique stores in ritzy neighborhoods.

Fancy Moms like Pnut that like funny fancy brands like Roberta Roller would also be into Petunia Picklebottom and JuJuBe diaper bags. FYI JuJuBe diaper bags are machine washable. You are welcome. 

Non-fancy villagers have proclaimed this shrug as “hospital wear”. Now I know that there are a multitude of ways to wear this shrug (a dress, coverup, as is, pareo skirt, patriotic accessory, etc.), but to add hospital gown just maybe sold me a little bit more since I am due with #4 and I always wanted one of those fancy hospital gowns that are over-priced and disposable at least this is machine washable!!!

I think my review word of the month is “Machine Washable” this is the second post I write about it!

The Beach People Escape Beach Cushion – $29 Retail

Sweet another item one can purchase online! This is one of those items that you wondered how you lived without one until it popped up in a subscription box. This will be lovely as a portable neck and/or lower back support pillow.

I am going to bring portable baby with me on my resort, beach, backyard, hospital setting, or just lounging escapades.

Vosges Mint Matcha Chocolate Bar

Vosges Mint Matcha Chocolate Bar – $8 Retail

Vosges is a Chicago luxe chocolate shoppe.

Yup that luxe the word shop deserves the “pe”!

Vosges Mint Matcha Chocolate Bar

I love to gobble up samples at their two stores then end up buying something because of the guilt on gorging on samples. Fortunately, sometimes Vosges pops up in subscription boxes so I can gobble up this luxe chocolate guilt-free.

Guilt-Free as long as I eat it during daylight hours to take advantage of the matcha green tea caffeine!!!

This nommy bar is solid chocolate with no bits inside. Just nice quality chocolate that you want to melt in your mouth with a hint of mint and matcha tea!

 

EVE LOM Cleanser and Muslin Cloth

EVE LOM Cleanser and Muslin Cloth – $50 Retail

This is a great luxe brand! But I need to finnish using my Beauty Counter Cleanser with muslin cloth (From the monthly February 2016 PopSugar box) because I can only tolerate one thick cleanser that needs its muslin cloth to be machine washable at one time.

Because I only have one face.

 

Triple C Diamond PlayRemove term: Vosges Mint Matcha Chocolate Bar

Triple C Diamond Play – $30 Retail

Can I say I am more excited about the charging cord than the actual item!?! I needed a shorter cord for my charging bag.

My Pokemon Go addiction is a battery hog to my droid’s battery.

Anyways about the actual item. I like the diamond shape its very cute and aesthetically pleasing to my eye.

I have plans to prank my Pnut people with this. Then they will likely confiscate it. No My Little Ponies will be harmed during the process. At least I will have the charge cord bahahahahaha!!!

ALL (MY PRECIOUSES) TOGETHER NOW!!!

POPSUGAR Limited Edition Resort 2017 Box Review

Verdict: Like I said, I needed a spoiler to purchase an LE box and I am more than thrilled with my shrug! The nom choosen was very nommy, luxe, and a local Chicago shoppe to boot! Even though the traditional over-priced jewelry item was a piece of junk I will turn the multiple “Made With Love” charms from it into future priceless jewelry tags made by my Pnut people. I needed another charger cord from my cell and battery banks. The Eve Lom cleanser balm will make a nice gift if I never finnish my Beauty Counter cleanser balm. And an inflatable travel pillow tops my “I really needed this in my life now that I found you” list!

    Nice! Your model did excellent. The pillow was a nice inclusion. My Beauty Counter balm is almost gone. I’ve got so many face cleansers that I’m trying to use them up now.

      So many face cleansers… only one face lol 🙂
