This Limited Edition Birchbox is All You Need to Prep for Summer

By Klaudia Tirico / May 15, 2015

As the original beauty subscription box, Birchbox is obviously killing it in the beauty game. The brand has now become a full-blown beauty destination with its own brick and mortar shop in Manhattan and blog. Their curated monthly boxes are great, but personally, I’m really into the epic limited-edition boxes they offer. The new Under The Sun box is basically summer in a box and I’m kind of obsessed. Here’s what’s inside the palm-tree adorned box: 
1. Supergoop Skin Soothing Mineral Sunscreen with Olive Polyphenols SPF 40 
This is one of my favorite sunscreen brands. The formulas are always so lightweight and never look chalky on skin. This formula in particular is ideal for sensitive skin because it’s blended with olive polyphenols. These antioxidants work wonders to calm redness, irritation and UVA-induced inflammation known to cause premature photo aging. The travel-sized bottle is easy to stash in any travel bag. 
2. Cynthia Rowley Beauty On the Go Multi Blush & Bronzer Sticks
If you haven’t heard, designer Cynthia Rowley now has a great makeup line sold only at Birchbox. Her latest launch is this adorable set of cream blush and bronzer. It’s basically all you need to touch up on the go after a day at the beach. The cream-to-powder formula looks and feels super natural on skin and is infused with antioxidant-rich squalane and olive fruit oil. Just wait and see how gorgeous these look on a freshly tanned face. 
3. Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour Shadow 
To take your summer look to the next level, try this smudge-resistant eye shadow for a natural wash of color. It can be applied wet or dry depending on how vibrant you want the hue to look on your lids. They’re sure to stay put during beach parties and beyond. 
4. NCLA Bikinis and Martinis nail polish 
Nothing looks better with a summer glow than a bright pink polish on your tips and toes. This pretty pink-orange hue complements every skin tone and is free of DBP, toulene, formaldehyde, camphor and even animal testing. 
5. Sugarpova Flirty
Adorable gummy candies for snacking on the beach. Need I say more? This delicious candy line was actually created by tennis star Maria Sharapova and features a wide variety of sweets to satisfy your taste buds. The Flirty bag features fruit-flavored gummy lips that are almost too cute to eat. 
6. Knockaround Sunglasses 
I tend to lose all my good sunglasses on the beach, so I avoid stashing designer lenses in my bag. Knockaround Sunglasses are super stylish and are super inexpensive so you won’t feel remorse if you accidentally misplace your sunnies. I love the red polarized lenses!
7. Baggu Bag
These reusable nylon bags come in handy for so many occasions. Use it to pack your groceries or throw your wet bathing suit in after the beach or pool. 
8. Chloe and Isabel Birchbox Exclusive Medina Convertible Pendant Necklace
Finally, this pretty pendant necklace is perfect for everyday wear, and an even better when paired with a bikini. Jewelry at the beach or pool is totally acceptable! 
This awesome box will be available at Birchbox.com on May 19th for only $55! I’m not joking, all that stuff for under $60; you simply can’t go wrong.
