Feel Effortless with the Winter 2016 Zoe Report Box of Style

Winter 2016 Box of Style From The Zoe Report

Purchased by me

I know not everyone is excited about winter. Even though it ushers in the holiday season, it also means freezing temps, dry skin, and looking like an Eskimo. Of course, where I live, it never gets as cold as I would like. Instead of dwelling in the winter blues, I’m going to cozy up to some new finds from the Winter 2016 Box of Style, $100(quarterly), from The Zoe Report.

If you’ve read any of my previous Box of Style reviews, you know this is one of my favorite quarterly boxes. I love the diversity of beauty and lifestyle products. I also enjoy discovering new brands and trying out products from brands on my wish list. This season’s box definitely lived up to those expectations, especially with its $433.50 value.

Hero Item: Dylanlex Zoey Custom Necklace – $200

Dylanlex Zoey Custom Necklace 

“No look is complete without a STATEMENT-MAKING accessory and I couldn’t be more obsessed with this custom necklace designed exclusively for us by It-girl-idolized Dylanlex.” RZ

I’m a huge fan of statement pieces, especially necklaces and rings. When a sneak peek of this necklace was released I did a little happy dance and counted down the days till my box would arrive.

The Zoey Custom Necklace is designed to be worn as a choker or a bib collar, which makes it very wearable. It’s well-crafted and has just the right amount of sparkle and edge. I think it’s one of those pieces you could wear to the office or for a night out.

As much as I loved the necklace, or idea of it, I did end up passing it along to my sister. I didn’t like the way it looked or felt on my neck. I can’t deal with anything feeling too tight or close to neck/throat area. It’s a personal thing, not an issue with the necklace.

The First Winter Layer: Sunday Riley Tidal Enzyme Brightening Water Cream- $65

 Sunday Riley Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream

“I always make it a point to treat my face to a little TLC after a long evening out or long travel day.” RZ

 Of all the items in the Winter Box, I was most excited to see something from Sunday Riley. With all the buzz surrounding this skincare line, I’ve been longing to try something from the brand.

The Tidal Enzyme Brightening Cream is designed to brighten, soothe and hydrate. During the winter, we all need an extra boost of moisture so I’m glad they included this in the box. Plus, according to Rachel Zoe it smells amazing. I can’t wait to give it a try once I finish up my other opened skincare products.

The Knit Factor: Soia & Kyo Olivia Knit Hat – $50

 Soia & Kyo Olivia Cable Knit Hat

“I love when it gets cool enough to start wearing beanies. My whole family wears beanies throughout the year.” RZ

You can never underestimate the importance of a good winter hat. I like one that is fashionable but also keeps my ears and head warm. The Soia & Kyo Olivia Hat does both.

This was also one of the items Winter 2016 Box of Style subscribers were allowed to choose which color they wanted to receive (Black, Cream, and Burgundy). I opted for the Burgundy as I already have a black and cream hat. I love everything about this cable knit hat. It makes my head feel like it’s wrapped in a soft, warm, and oh so stylish sweater.

The Mood Setter: D.L. & Co. The Zoe Report “Birch” Custom Candle – $50

 D.L. & Co The Zoe Report Birch Custom Candle

“Nothing sets the AMBIANCE like a great smelling candle, and this one is a dream.” RZ

 Rachel Zoe is right, there is nothing like a great smelling candle. There is also nothing like a candle in a beautiful glass container either. Or one made exclusively for the Winter 2016 Box of Style.

At first, I wasn’t sure how I felt about the “birch” scent of this candle. I like woodsy scents in the winter, but sometimes they can be too overpowering. This candle, however, is perfection. It smells amazing; like a walk through the winter woods with a great smelling man. Ah, a girl can dream…

The-Tiny-But-Mighty: Dagne Dover Exclusive Leather Card Case – $50

 Dagne Dover Exclusive Leather Card Case

“As with any working mom, it is always a challenge to stay on top of things. I live for anything that helps to keep me ORGANIZED.” RZ

 This luxe pebbled leather case is another standout for me. It’s sophisticated, chic, and very practical. I especially love the beauty navy color. I know I’ll get a lot of use out of it.

As recommended in the Winter 2016 Box of Style booklet, included with each box, you can also use this card case as a wallet. This makes it perfect for small evening bags or for those times when you don’t want to carry a large purse or your everyday wallet.

The One – Two Punch: Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer in Berry Pop- $18.50 Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer in Berry Pop

“A BOLD LIP is the quintessential accessory of the beauty world-it pulls a LOOK TOGETHER and draws in the eye.” RZ

 When I was in high school and college, Clinique was the brand of makeup we all wore. Since then, I really haven’t spent much time browsing the Clinique counter.  Lately, though, I’ve very impressed with any items I try out from the brand, whether through this box or other subscription boxes.

As a lippie junkie who loves berry colors, I instantly fell in love with this lip colour + primer. It feels amazing, has great lasting power, and embodies that sultry winter lip I adore.

The Spotlight: Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Fragrance

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy

Every now and again, The Box of Style comes with an additional product. This time The Spotlight features a nice sized sample of Viva La Juicy. I’m not a huge fan of the scent, but I do like this extra addition.

Overall: Once again, The Winter 2016 Box of Style is a hit. I adore the diverse range of products and brands. Plus, with a value of over $400 and 15%-25% off coupons from most of the brands, it’s well worth the $100 quarterly investment. If you’re looking for an amazing subscription service featuring beauty and lifestyle products, I highly recommend checking out The Box of Style from The Zoe Report. I can’t wait to see the sneak peek of the Hero Item for the 2107 Spring Box.
