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.

    • Koreans are acknowledged globally for their flawless and glowing skin texture. And, they have been generous enough to share their 10-step skincare regime with the world. Here are a few of my favorite products that I can absolutely can't do without: Some By Mi H7 Hydromax Moisture Cream My absolute favourite is the moisturizing cream by ‘Some by Mi.’ It moisturizes your skin deeply with 7- hyaluronic acid molecules and forms a barrier to keep the moisture locked in for longer. Cleanse your face and gently apply the  H7 Hydromax Moisture Cream for soft, smooth, and supple skin. COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner Another big name in the Korean skincare industry is of COSRX. COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner is an exfoliating fluid that prevents blackheads and whiteheads while effectively eliminating the dead and flaky skin cells. Infused with natural vitamins, it double cleanses your face from deep within. The AHA BHA PHA toner is a blessing for all those who have acne-prone skin. Also check: Cosrx Favorite Set Some By Mi Aha Bha Pha 30 Days Miracle Serum The next Korean skincare product on the list is the miracle serum by Some by Mi. This low pH toner is formulated with several vitamins that heal acne, lighten skin tone, pigmentation, and dark spots. You will start witnessing the change in your skin from the first week itself. Don’t forget to shake Some By Mi Aha Bha Pha 30 Days Miracle Serum well before use as it is a water-oil based toner. Apply a generous amount of it after taking showers. Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch If in this world overnight magic would possibly exist, it would only exist through Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch. Put this patch overnight on your pimple and it would help in reducing the redness and cleaning away the impurities incurred from acne. Its primary asset is that it makes sure that no after-pimple mark remains on your skin. You can read more it through our first-hand review of this product here: Cosrx Pimple Master Patch: Reviews & How to Use It? Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel This Korean skincare product is enriched with aloe and Propolis that help the skin in diverse ways. It soothes texture, fades the scars and brightens the skin Additionally, with aloe being its key ingredient, it helps in reducing the redness of the skin in totality. Aloe is, in fact, a key component even in K Beauty and Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel has plenty of it. You can read more about Aloe Benefits in our blog.
