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

Recommended Posts

@@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.

I did not get this box but I am excited that I just picked up the tote for $18 at C21! Enjoy your goodies ladies.

 

Letsgeaux - I hope your sister is doing well and she makes it to the beach this summer.  Paddywax sells a lovely sea salt candle and etsy has some super cheap (like $2) sea salt fragrance oils for the home.  Hope she enjoys the soap :)

Yeah, I was surprised too!  They have a bunch of colors on this site: http://www.c21stores.com/product/THURSDAY-FRIDAY-Black--White-Gold-Toe-Everyday-Tote?cm_mmc=GoogleShopping-_-cpc-_-NA-_-6037-1037%20100&utm_source=GoogleShopping&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=6037-1037%20100&utm_campaign=NA&CAWELAID=500002840000232466&CAGPSPN=pla&gclid=CjwKEAjw5J6sBRDp3ty_17KZyWsSJABgp-Oaa1lwbkj5epIdKnp_TNhai0-2FZs6ykeCboZ0W7SEtxoCe0zw_wcB

 

It's probably my favorite thing in the box (based on your photo), but I bet the low sale price will make it hard for people who don't want it to swap it.

Thanks for the tip-I'm going to get her a few oils and a diffuser....  She'll get her own "beach box" curated by me with the help of you and anyone else who has salty air ideas!

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

 

Same here, hopefully it will move soon. Glad to see spoilers though and can't wait to get it!

This was my first and last $100 box. I got both MSA boxes and I've been subbing to KloverBox since December (I think). With this one, I'm incredibly underwhelmed.

 

I'm afraid to remove the pillow from vacuum seal, because I don't think it looks quality in Anna's pics and I'll prolly swap it. Mine is also missing a pillow cover unless it's folded inside the pillow somehow. Through plastic, I only see the tag and seam of a plain filler pillow and nothing else. It doesn't look like PAAnna's pic. A nicer fabric case for a pillow I already own would've been more my preference (and easier to fit in the box). I know I'm only one person though.

 

The tote being available online for $18 is kind of a slap in the face for a $100 box.

 

Overall. the box is boring and not my taste at all. I much preferred Anna's original guesses to what I actually got. A seashell (or any kind of) wind chime or a sea glass jewelry item.Yes! Or Mccarty's suggestions for a poolside waterproof bag or an eco-friendly waterproof watch. Yes! Those are more adventurous and interesting ideas. Again, I know I'm only one voice and it's more important to please the majority of people. If there were a future collaboration, I wouldn't buy again. Especially at that price point.

@@itselectric I took a few more pictures of the fully fluffed up pillow. Hope it helps! There's no blue showing through the plastic?

In this picture you can see the zipper.

 

ETA I still can't get over the price of the tote on the one website. I need to mention it to my sister.

I am really kicking myself for dropping $100 on this. I think that a lot of people will enjoy this box, but sadly, it just isn't for me. I know that's the gamble that we take with sub boxes, I just wish that I hadn't spent so much to gamble on this one with it's higher price point.

The pillow cover for mine was in the same plastic bag as the tote. I initially thought it was a dust cover for the bag, since my bag is a mint green that is fairly close in color to the pillow. Hope that helps!!

I got the mint green tote in my box. I like it but wish I'd gotten the beige one. I also can't believe it's on sale for $18. Even with the $9.95 shipping it's still a bargain at $27.95.

I'm still on the fence about how I feel about this box and if it is worth the $100 it cost me.

FWIW, I left the pillow outside of the bag for about two hours and then gave it a good fluffing before putting the cover on. Looks REALLY nice now. Happens to match my couch / midcentury modern in apple green and turquoise living room really well and I will probably swap for more of them.  I was shocked that the bag had such a high list price - it's nice, but seemed (to me) like something that would sell for just about what Century21 is selling it for. I think I'll be gifting that to someone since I'm awash in totes right now. The sunscreen I will definitely be swapping because I have to use a much higher SPF.  Soap smells great and will be perfect in my guest bath, which actually has a beach theme because I'm a dork and love a themed guest bath (ask me about the ones my Mom has had). Excited to try the scrub, although a little concerned I might slip and kill myself in the tub!  Will read up on the Tatcha cream to see if it seems like it'll work for me, but I have a feeling that that's a swappin'.

 

All in all I think this was a really nice, practical grouping of stuff, although I can see why some people might think it lacks a bit in the "fun" factor.

Wowzers I thought I got a bargain snagging one of those totes for 17.98, the thursday friday site is having a 4th of july sale with code JULY80 you get 80% off that makes the bag $12!  There are some cute things on that site and with the sale pretty affordable.

I got my box when I got home from work tonight. I love it! The 'fun' item is missing, but I absolutely love everything in here--nice to get home item, fashion item (I received the 'Creme de Menthe' colored tote), and some bath and body items. I bought this before I got a new job and had to start budgeting (see ya later, cash tips), so I likely won't be buying any more $100 boxes in my near future, but I'm so glad I bought this one.

Still waiting for my box to move, still says shipping label created. I know I'm not the only one, so I'm trying to wait patiently  :D

 

I also bought one of the tote bags for my Mom from the C21 Store (thanks Ranindrop for posting) for her birthday. She goes to the beach for two months every fall so I like to put together a beach themed present for her this year. I'm drowning in sunscreen, so will probably give her that as well. Now to find some other ideas to put into her bag......

No, but I emailed Kloverbox and the response was lightening fast. The cover was folded in the bag with the tote. All is well. :)

I love the green one that's what I was hoping to get, I got the "Antler"/beige one instead.

I agree, I liked the first MSA quarterly box though and was so sad I missed it, so I got the 2nd and wasn't thrilled with it. I should've known better than to get this box, just because my style is very different from Liz's and I think this box is totally her style. I think it's nice and elegant, I would've preferred more beachy/fun things, bright colors. No more $100 gambles for me, I'll wait for the next LE Goodebox.

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.

Hi, where are you getting the values from? Did you just Google search the names? I'm surprised the retail values aren't listed on the card . . .

Yeah, just go to the company websites and look up the items.

I am on vacation so I will open my box in one month :-/ But I am very happy to discover/try that sunscreen. We all should reapply sunscreen few times a day, but I never do this because of my make up. Maybe this will be the solution!

I am also happy about Tatcha (really want to try this cream, I love their rice polish powder) and scrub (so necessary in summer)

I could do without pillow (I have no need at all for more single pillows in my house ) and I would prefer something else instead of soap.

Tote is ok, I hope for mint one.

 

I was so disappointed in MSA2. Sadly I didn't buy MSA1, which was the best box ever. This one is nice, just a bit expensive. $75 would be better price.

Still I would buy fall one if Lis is going to curate one. I guess I am afraid of missing out as I did on MSA1.

I didn't buy this box, so I really shouldn't comment on it, but what the heck?  I actually like the box.  I think it is on theme and the products all look very nice.  I would never buy a co-branded box, and it has nothing to do with KB or MSA.  I wouldn't buy a co-branded box, because two parties now have to make money on that box, and that means something has to be sacrificed; in this case, the subscriber who plopped down $100.00.  If you manage your expectations downward, you will probably grow to love the box (it's really not that bad).  If love is too strong a word, then go with "like," but either way, I would think twice before ever buying a co-branded box.  More times than not, they aren't going to measure up to our uber high expectations.  

 

I'm not really sure why box companies decide to do these types of boxes.  When they announce the collaboration, everyone thinks, "I'm definitely buying that box.  That's a dream team.  What can possibly go wrong?"  The reality is that if they put out an average or even an above average box, their reputation will go south quicker than Robin Thicke's career.  Maybe there's a lot of money in it, and that's why it's done...

I didn't order this box but I'm confused about the pillow. Is it a bed pillow, travel pillow or what?
