The POPSUGAR Resort Special Edition Box was a one-time box offered by POPSUGAR filled with an assortment of items perfect for resort season curated by the editors of POPSUGAR!

This box is now sold out.

If you’re unfamiliar with them, POPSUGAR Must Have Box is a monthly women’s subscription box. In the regular monthly box, you’ll receive items from a mix of categories like beauty, home, accessories, jewelry, etc. It’s one of the most popular subscription boxes around!

The updated branding for the Limited Edition boxes is modern and fabulous! I also love unwrapping all the items individually – it makes it feel really special.

Luxurious finds to make your next warm-weather getaway one you’ll never forget!

The information card was a 4-part foldout that details the idea of the box.

It contains all the information on the items in the box.

A beautiful selection of items perfect for your tropical resort getaway. Everything is packaged up in retail packaging – most of it is perfectly giftable!

The Beach People Escape Beach Cushion ($29) This beach cushion is great for napping outdoors! It has a 100% cotton pillow cover and an inflatable cushion insert.

There are two different patterns on the two sides.

Tada! The pillow cover has cotton terry loops on the inside, so it’s nice and absorbent, too.

Triple C Diamond Play Speaker ($30) This is a pretty, functional item that seems more at home on my nightstand than on the beach! It features a button disc: press to play, press and hold for power, press to the left/right to skip/forward tracks, and hold to the left/right to lower/raise the volume.

The sound is great from this little cutie! This may be my favorite bluetooth speaker yet because of the design. The info card says it lasts for about 2.5 hours between charges.

Vosges Mint Matcha Chocolate Bar ($8)

I love how Vosges concentrates on the full experience for tasting their super-premium chocolates!

This beautiful bar is flavored with fresh mint oil and premium grade A matcha.

The flavor was delicious – more minty than matcha, which didn’t leave that “green tea” taste. There’s something to be said about the ultra-premium ingredients Vosges uses – and their chocolates are so satisfying. I let my 8-year-old decadently eat a square while relaxing in the tub. A mini getaway for my mini-me!

CC Skye Coral Beaded Bali Necklace ($95) This 36″ necklace can be worn as is, or looped for a more layered look.

It features coral-colored beads plus little hamsa hands and “made with love” charms.

EVE LOM CleanserEVE LOM Muslin Cloth ($50) I have mixed feelings on this item.

This cream cleanser uses the same ritual as Liz Earle – apply cleanser and steam off with your muslin cloth. However, it’s paraffin and mineral oil based, so it’s not the best for your skin.

That being said – it really truly removes difficult to remove makeup. As someone who often has stripes of tough-to-get-off makeup on her arms, I can appreciate a good last resort makeup remover. It’s scented with eucalyptus, and I enjoyed the scent, but not everyone would like it.

Roberta Roller Rabbit Slate Beach Shrug ($95) This print is an exclusive just for POPSUGAR Must Have Resort Box! It’s super sheer and just a simple, fun coverup, and for me has a mega Fourth of July vibe.

It’s also crazy versatile – see all the ways you can wear it here!

This year’s box had a retail value of around $308. I do appreciate the designer items, which are lovely and luxe – but I’d be happy with a FabFitFun styled box too (their Spring box seems like a resort box this year!).

Did you get a POPSUGAR Resort box? What did you think of this year’s box?
