I’m In Love!!!!!

I’ve been anxiously awaiting the arrival of my summer selection of the Rachel Zoe Box of Style!  The summer edition came a couple of weeks ago, and I used all the products in the box, and loved each and every one of them.  My impressions of the products are all positive yet, what baffles me is the amount of time this service was available and I didn’t jump on it!

Helena Quinn Kimono, Retail Value: $120

 This is a light weight, sheer, and slimming Kimono.  I’ve never had one, never wanted one, and now I’m in love with it, and will not live without it!  It is an easy on, easy off Kimono, and so comfortable to wear.  I wore it over a t-shirt and a blouse and it draped beautifully over my husky frame.  Need I say more?

 

RAEN Durante Sunglasse-Black or Tortoise Shell, Retail Value: $150

♥ I chose the polished black frame design.  The glasses are sturdy, comfortable, and have a smokey lens.  I’ve never heard of this company that makes these sunglasses of such high quality at a competitive price point.  So glad I have them, I probably would have walked by them in a store, and now I will not live with this demonstrative pair of sunglasses!  I now know how a movie star feels!

 

♥ A delicate 16″ necklace that I needed help putting on, and it looked fabulous, not because it was on me, just because it  was very pretty to look at.  There is an added bonus when you purchase this necklace, you are supporting the fair trade Cambodian artisans that donate 10% of the sale of this necklace, toward the fight against human trafficking.  The Box of Style Zoe Report stated: “Summer is synonymous with travel, and this handmade necklace is a chic symbol of those sweet escapes we look forward to all year long.  -xo RZ”  I disagree with Rachel Zoe, when I wear this compass necklace, I will be thinking of all the individuals who are helped by the sale of this compass necklace and happy some are able to navigate life on their own terms.  

♥ Lightweight, simple straw hat that stays in my car, at all times!  I thought this hat resembled a casual fedora more than a panama hat, either way it is cute and a lifesaver in last weeks blazing sun.  The pom pom trim adds a dressier look, and it is a great fit for large head individuals, FYI.  The only drawback that I could detect was wearing the hat in the scorching sun and sweating.  This hat does not have a removable/washable terry cloth interior band that soaks up the sweat.  I like the price point, but if you sweat in it, that dried sweat is eventually going to build up and sit against your forehead, yuck!

Beautycounter, Color Pinch Cream Blusher, Retail Value:  $37

Beautycounter, Protect Stick Sunscreen, Retail Value:  $ 18

Both of the Beautycounter products are outstanding.  I love a cream blusher, and this one in the shade Hibiscus, is lovely.  It is a multi-purpose blusher for your cheeks and lips, which weirds me out.  I know my face is clean, but I have a problem putting it to my lips after I have glided the product on my cheeks.  I did try it on checks and lips when I first opened it,  and it looked equally as pretty.  It is extremely easy to apply, it took seconds to yield a nice healthy glow.  The blusher is creamy and highly pigmented.  A bonus when you purchase the blusher is that it is made with organic ingredients.

The sunscreen for the face was not greasy, water-resistant, and had a slight cocoa butter scent, I loved it.  I liked the fact that you reapply the product every two hours, and every 80 minutes when swimming.  It was great on the go, and will be a staple in my bag!  

I don’t know whether I’ve gone a little soft and it may seem pathetic that I act like a kid on Christmas morning when my Box of Style is delivered.  But the adult in me is saying: “wow, $467 worth of product for $100, geewhiz, I’m brilliant”.  I really do look forward to the delivery, now more than ever knowing what quality, variety, and lovely products have crossed my threshold in the past two deliveries!  Have a great week, stay cool!
