The MSA & KB Limited Edition Beach House Box [Spoilers]

Recommended Posts

No spoilers yet. Here is the blurb from the Kloverbox website.

 

Kloverbox and My Subscription Addiction joined together to bring you a Limited Edition Summer Box - The Beach House Box! Inspired by a beach house vacation, this box features natural beauty brands and coastal living essentials. This one-time purchase will ship early June to the US only.

 

Time to start guessing! Liz stated that the items are usable even if one does not own a beach house. Kelly & Liz, please don't stress. Half the fun is guessing!

 

I'm guessing there will be 5-7 items with a total retail amount between $150-$200.  I don't have a lot of ideas for the theme so my guesses are limited and random.

 

1. enV Bags - They have beach themed reusable bags. The totes can hold up to 40 lbs and are water resistant.  I don't think I ever seen them in sub boxes.

 

2. enV Bags  - They also have a beach themed outdoor pillow case which would go nice with an outdoor pillow. Outdoor pillows can also be used indoors.

 

3. Coolibar Blanket or a different item - It has SPF in their items. I don't know if they meet KB's standard for vendors and have not seen that brand in sub boxes.

 

4. A blanket/beach towel/hand towel/tea towel - I don't think turkish cotton because it has already been done by PopSugar and Causebox.

 

5. An item from Beach Organics - They are certified USDA Organic, Certified Vegan, and Cruelty Free ( I think certified because it has the bunny emblem). They offer shampoo, deodorant, sunscreen, repellant etc.  I think it fits in well, but i never seen them in a box before.

 

6. A type of sunscreen - Going off what I received in the EWG SunSafety Box that is also in sub boxes -SunIntegrity, Goddess Garden Organics, Juice Beauty, or Honest Company. The good thing is that we will know it blends in because Liz looks for that in sunscreen. :)

 

Other things I  think of when I hear the theme are sea shells, windchimes, blue and white decor,  and a beach tote. Maybe someone else will have more ideas. I didn't purchase it for the theme. I purchased it because I'm certain I will like most, if not all, the items because it is being offered by KB and MSA.

 

Edited to add : Maybe a Balance Guru product!

I passed on this one as well (too many purchases lately) but the theme sounds fun!

I like your ideas @@PA Anna!

 

I was thinking/hoping there might be a non-sticky Chapstick or lip gloss with sunscreen, but with just got that in the May box, so I'm thinking probably not!

 

My guesses/wish list are:

 

An Eco-friendly waterproof watch, like something from Sprout watches: http://www.sproutwatches.com/white-tyvek-confetti-crystal-watch

 

A sun hat with Spf (maybe Mott50?)

 

Sunscreen and/or bug spray

 

Bracelet or anklet - I like the sea glass idea, but anything sparkly http://www.ourgreenhouse.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=plb-hope&Click=18030&utm_source=googleshopping&utm_medium=shoppingengine&gclid=CLaR2MW_7sUCFQaLaQodKCMAyw

 

Salt water taffy

 

And a small waterproof bag to keep things like your phone safe at the beach or pool

 

 

I'm really hoping no bronzer. And I'm guessing we may get a tote, but I hope not personally because I've just gotten about three! Maybe if it was something larger like a weekender bag!

 

For the value, I'm hoping it's over $200, minimum, because I feel like the more successful boxes have at least double the value. That gives buyers a chance to dislike/not use/have allergies to, at least one item (it's low odds that everyone will love everything), and then account for the fact that you can buy just about everything with a 20% off coupon now-a-days... That means that you get a better deal buying the box than if you were just to pick out the items you like and buy them with coupons. Hope that makes sense!

 

Anyway, I have been really happy with the quality of the goods Kelly has sent out in KB in the past, and I think Liz knows what makes up a good special edition box, so I am really looking forward to getting this!

 

(Oh, and I think there will be something decorative in the box.... Wind chime maybe?)

Liz posted that Kelly should have the packing materials early next week!

@@biancardi I love the idea of sea glass jewelry.

@@Reija It's been crazy lately with so many one time boxes available for purchase. It's hard to pick and choose.

@@Miccarty2 I forgot about Mott50! I can see them being in the box. I like the bracelet that you linked. I can see Kloverbox/MSA  being able to put in $200.00 worth of value. I don't want to get my hopes up.

@@Sherr mentioned the spoiler in the regular thread.

 

MSA posted a spoiler for the BeachBox. It is the One Love Organics Vitamin C Body Polish! It looks great. Also the box will ship 2 day priority by the 18th!

 

I am going to add one more guess - TATCHA blotting papers. I know it isn't the correct name. I received them in a Sample Society Mystery Warehouse sale last year and love them.

Thanks for the mention … I hadn't realized there was a thread just for this special collaboration box.

Here's an update for anyone that might have missed it. I wonder what the creative solution looks like? Items wrapped in a towel or a blanket? Items arranged artistically in a bag? I hope my box arrives on Monday because I will be busy at the farm Tuesday. Either way I can't wait! :D

 

I also need to follow-up with Kelly on something. I am going to wait until the two boxes ship. I can't imagine how busy she is right now with both boxes shipping back to back.

 

Just a quick update and apology - we had an issue come up with the label printer, and getting all the items to fit in the box (we came up with a creative solution you'll see soon), so labels should print tonight and boxes will be out Saturday the latest.

Kloverbox + MSA

 

ETA: I have a tracking number that says label created!

Thanks for the spoilers!  It seems like the value is definitely there - these aren't cheap items.  I'm not super excited about anything, but there also isn't anything I immediately feel I'd want to swap.  Hmmm - I hope when I get mine, I'll love it!

Looks like a value of $218 - not bad!  The tote bag is listed as $110, but you can buy it online for $18!?  So I used $18 for that value.

Thanks for the spoilers @@PA Anna! I had to look, as I wasn't wild about the scrub spoiler, so I wanted to give myself time to adjust expectations before I opened the box tonight.

 

I do think the value is there, and I can use all the products, even if there isn't anything in there that I'm super excited about. I wonder what the tote color variations are? I can always use a tote, and I'm thinking the pillow might actually match the chair cushions on my deck, so if it does, I'll be pleased.

 

I think this box might be one of those that I like a lot more after I've had a chance to use all the products a little.

There are a lot of pictures. Click on the spoiler tag to see them. I didn't want to cause problems with those looking on mobile etc. eating up gigabytes.

First look at the box. The card on top is the information card. I did not take a picture of the inside because it has codes.

 

post-118357-0-20146900-1434992934_thumb.jpg

Second look at the box.

 

post-118357-0-96615200-1434992987_thumb.jpg

Thursday Friday - Gold Toe Tote in Antler. There are 3 variations, but the variations are not listed on the card. We will find out soon enough when others posts. It has studs on the bottom, a gold turn catch closure, made out of canvas with a nylon lining, and has pockets on the insides. I love the color.  This will be used a lot over the summer.

 

post-118357-0-87306200-1434993241_thumb.jpg

Here is the pillow vacuumed sealed! Clever. What happens when it is opened?

 

post-118357-0-94157000-1434993314_thumb.jpg

Voila! A pillow made exclusive for the box by Olio Studo. It is an Aqua Stripe Pillow. I took the picture right after removing it from the bag. I am looking at the pillow right now and it is fully inflated. Another item that will be used a lot.

 

post-118357-0-35146800-1434993517_thumb.jpg

One Love Organics Vitamin C Body Polish 6 oz - I opened the seal just a tiny bit so I could take a whiff of the scent. It smells like summer. :)

 

post-118357-0-86404300-1434993742_thumb.jpg

Hand in Hand - Sea Salt Liquid Hand Soap 12 oz. Never fear, the pump is in the box. Be sure to look for it if you missed it.  It has a nice pleasant scent which reminds me of my childhood vacations when I close my eyes. I am putting this in the bathroom.

 

post-118357-0-35994200-1434993978_thumb.jpg

GoldFaden MD- SunVisor 2.7 oz. I peaked at the card before opening the box  to see what was the first item listed  and the word SunVisor caught my eye. This is a little different than what I pictured. It's great for under or over makeup. I tried this on my arm. It is a spray and comes out as a white foam/liquid that you rub in. No scent. I'll be using this later today.

 

post-118357-0-50297700-1434994326_thumb.jpg

TATCHA - Enriching Renewal Cream travel size. Do not be fooled by this small size. This little cream is $38.00; full size is $185.00. I love TATCHA especially their :luv: hand cream :luv: . I've used this travel size cream before and loved it. I'm happy to see it in the box and am very happy to see a TATCHA code.

 

The card has great codes if you want to order more products. I know I will be using my TATCHA code to order more :luv: hand cream :luv: .There are also a couple of information cards about the companies in the box.

Quick question- did the hand soap ship with a pump or is it a refill type situation? 

 

Edit never mind, I see it! Thanks so much for the pictures!!

 

The box looks good! Nothing insanely exciting but extremely usable. I think my biggest disappointment is the lack of swap fodder. There is just nothing I can justify swapping since I use or was thinking of buying every one of those things. I've been hemming and hawing about buying a new work tote and here it is!

My younger sister has serious health problems.  She LOVES the beach, but we rarely get there b/c of drs apps, etc.  As soon as we have plans, she starts referring to "salty air."  A few weeks ago, I swapped for Demeter's "Salt Air" perfume.  She wears it all the time and says it calms her down and reminds her of our good times together.  I've been trying to think of more "salty air" gifts for her, but she can't use lotion (or anything oily) on her body.  I'm SO EXCITED for the hand soap--this is a PERFECT gift for her.  I hope there is a code for Hand In Hand--I need a lot it!

@@raindrop Thursday-Friday tote - I did not check around for prices, bud did notice that the tote is marked from $110.00 to $60.00 on the Thursday-Friday website. That's amazing it is available for $18.00.

 

@@Miccarty2 Thursday- Friday tote - I saw 4 variations for the cream/off-white tote and 4 variations for the black tote on the company's website. I'm curious about the variations. It is a solid tote that I expect will hold up to my family this summer. I hope you enjoy the box!

 

@@LetsGeaux There is a 20% discount code that expires 7/17/15. I hope your sister loves the soap.

 

@ I didn't see the pump at first in the box. I am glad they included it!

 

@ That happens to me sometimes. where it never updates until it is delivered.  I hope your box shows up today.

Anyone else's box still in pre-shipment mode? I received my tracking on Friday and nothing's happened since.

 

Mine is still in label created stage, from what I've seen on MSA its common.

I've been dying to get this box, my tracking said the delivery date is supposed to be today, but it hasn't been updated since the 20th. And my mail already came, so no beach box today. I don't love the box and a little sad the tote isn't a bright color. I don't get the pillow either. I gambled on a $100 box there's always a chance I won't love the boxes. Hopefully I like it better in person, looking forward to the body scrub.

    • Our skin is a very sensitive organ of the body. Every day it goes through environment changes, temperature fluctuations, pollution, and dirt. While tackling with all of them, it has a great responsibility to secrete oils and sweat to protect itself from the outside world and maintain the body temperature. Basically, at the end of the day it not only gets exhausted, but goes into a dire need of nutrients to replenish its energy. A chemical product may give your skin instant glow, but it becomes a crutch. It makes our skin dependent upon chemical based products so much that if the product is not used, the skin starts falling into the worst conditions like dryness, acne, excess oils etc. Hence, plant based skin care brands are emerging to bring you a better option that will replenish all the natural oils and nutrients of your skin and make it naturally healthy. The natural and plant-based skin care products do not have harmful toxins that your body might intake through the epidermis’ habit of absorbing whatever is applied on it. A product like – the rejuvenator dry oil emulsion is made only of natural ingredients like apple stem cell, natural oils and herbs. After a long day, they provide your skin hydration, phytonutrients, and boost cell protection and collagen. Intake of these products through the skin is completely safe because they share the same biological chemistry as our bodies and blend in.

    • I suppose it’s an indication of little I used to think about sleep that it never occurred to me my sleeping position was in anyway abnormal. I fall asleep on my right hand side then often sleep on my stomach, head to one side if I wake up during the night. Turns out only about 7% of the population do this.   But is there a ‘best side’ to sleep on? The jury seems to be out but there are pros and cons to each sleeping position   If you sleep on your back (which I rarely do) it’s apparently good for your spine and preventing acid reflux but you are more likely to snore. On the other hand it may “maintain perky breasts” according to this article on the CNN website. (Probably not if you’ve had a couple of kids, I’d suggest)   Sleeping on your side – right or left – apparently makes it easier to breathe and helps to avoid heartburn and acid reflux. It also tends to be the most comfortable position if you’re pregnant, especially with a body pillow. However curling up in a foetal position is not good for your neck or spine.   Some experts say you’re better to sleep on your right hand side if you have a cardiac condition as it puts less stress on the heart. On the other hand sleeping on your left may be better for your liver and kidneys.   Sleeping on your front can put strain on your neck though this can be alleviated if you only have one or no pillows. (According to the Better Sleep Council this position makes me brash, outgoing, and very uncomfortable with criticism!)   On the other hand a recent survey came up with the finding that sleeping on the left of the bed (which I invariably do) makes you more cheerful and positive – but not as financially well off as those who sleep on the right. According to the ... er... Daily Mail.   In the absence of any consensus it seems to me that there’s no reason to change your sleeping position if you sleep well or haven’t been advised to alter it by your doctor. On the other hand if you sleep badly – or snore loudly – it could be worth trying to make a change.    So what are you – a side, a back or a stomach sleeper and have you ever managed to change the way you sleep? Read more information about the best mattress for sleeping. Good luck!
