Ahoi mates! Those of you who live in Switzerland know that this June is the worst in history (okay maybe not in history, but it is the worst as far as I can remember). It has been raining since weeks now and I am sure it strains your nerves as much as it does mine. Even though I will not be getting even close to a beach any time soon, the latest box of Boxmopolitan is giving me summery feelings. This month’s Boxmopolitan edition is the ultimative summer and holiday box and contains products from the brands La Belle Iloise, Skinnies, Ahoi Marie, Lola, Meereskind, Dock & Bay and MSY Pegasus Blue. The nautical and maritime themed pieces are exactly my taste. Those who know me in person know that I love everything stripy (I literally can’t walk past striped things without wanting to buy them) and blue is my favorite color. Scroll down to read more about the lovely hand-picked products that are included in this month’s box!La Belle Iloise Tuna Fish „Marie Galante“ is a tuna fish combined with exotic flavors of coconut, peppers, lime and spices. Although I am not a huge fan of seafood (or fish in general) I do love tuna and I am excited to try this one. Also, it does not only sound delicious but is also preserved in this fancy designed can. Mmh yummy!
The notepad by Ahoi Marie is a cute little notepad and its pages are printed on the back with a nautical chart. It does look really cool and it is almost too pretty to write your notes on. travel and beach towel by Dock & Bay is 100% made of lightweight and quick drying microfibre and comes in a very handy pouch so you can easily take it wherever you go. I am in love with the white/blue striped design and hopefully will be able to take it with me soon.
Lola Cola Null by Lola is yet again a tasty and refreshing lemonade, produced under fair and sustainable circumstances. The Null (or „Zero“) is a novelty though and contains fewer calories than the Lola Cola Classic, which I already got to know from the 3rd Boxmopolitan Edition. The label still is an eyecatcher, isn’t it?
The Anchor & Wheel Bandana by MSY Pegasus Blue is a beautiful 50x50cm bandana made from 100% cotton. It does look lovely and you can bind it around your neck, head, handbag or wherever you like to make your maritime style just perfect.
The Anchor & Crystal necklace by Meereskind is all handmade by a new Swiss label founded in 2016. It is so beautiful and I absolutely love it. What is best is that it is nickel free as this is something I personally need to check whenever shopping for jewelry.
Last but not least the box also contains a concentrated suncreen by Skinnies. Skinnies is a new kind of sunscreen and unlike many other sunscreens it does not contain any water and thus you will need less cream than usual. They say that with a pea sized drop you can protect your face, neck & ears from UV damage and the gel is absorbed within seconds, protects after just two minutes and lasts all day. Wow! That sounds like the perfect sunscreen for my very fair skin. Skinnies does not leave your skin greasy and can also be used under any makeup, it is dermatologically tested and contains no allergenic additives such as parabens, preservatives, emulsifiers, fragrances or alcohol. Now we just need the sun to come out to test this little wonder, right?
