Curateur Summer 2021 Unboxing + a Discount code for $25 off!

Friday, May 14, 2021

I received a complimentary box from Curateur. All opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links.

Hey, guys! I'm back with an unboxing of the Summer 2021 Curateur box and it's sooo good! Curateur is a luxury subscription box that delivers the season's most coveted picks in high-end fashion and beauty. I'll show you what's inside my Summer box, the choice items, and I've got an exclusive discount code just for my community to get $25 off of your first box! Let's unbox it!

About Curateur

Curateur is a luxury, high-end subscription service that delivers seasonal fashion and beauty trends curated by celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe, valued at over $400, direct to your door 4 times a year for less than $100 per box. You also get exclusive membership perks like styling tips from Rachel and access to their member marketplace with additional items up to 60% off retail value.

If this sounds familiar, Curateur is the evolution of Box of Style. Check out some of my past Curateur/Box of Style unboxings here.

Every box features a unique curation of 5 luxe items in the fashion and beauty categories with a minimum value of $400+. You can subscribe month-to-month for $99.99 or prepay for a year for $349.99 and save $50.

The box usually includes the Curateur magazine that features interviews, information & styling tips for the box items, along with discounts, but I didn't get one again this season. 

First out of the box is the RACHEL ZOE Capri Tote ($105).

This effortlessly chic canvas tote will accompany you on all your adventures this summer. Whether it be to the beach, pool, a picnic at the park, the farmers market—the options are endless.
  • Natural canvas
  • Vegan leather trim and handles
  • 40cm (L) x 11cm (D) x 31cm (H)
  • Magnetic Closure
  • Interior pockets

I absolutely love this bag! The canvas has a nice texture contrasted with the trim and it can be dressed down as a beach bag or up for an around-town bag. This is absolutely my speed.

It has a magnetic snap closure, one large interior zip pocket, and two interior slip pockets (edged with the trim material). I appreciate the trim on the pockets; It makes it easier to find them without looking. I like being able to slip my sunglasses in my bag quickly without having to dig through the whole thing looking for them later.

Summer lips need extra attention and this coconut lip oil penetrates deep into the skin for maximum hydration. Wear it alone for a subtle, glossed look or layered on top of your favorite lipstick for a shiny finish. 
  • An ultra-nourishing lip oil, with 5 forms of coconut and vitamin E, for instant and all-day hydration. Lips look smoother, fuller and more youthful.
  • This clear, conditioning coconut lip oil can be worn alone for a healthy-looking sheen, before lipstick to prep lips, or on top of lip color for maximum shine. 
  • Results: Clinically proven instant and all-day hydration

"You've got kissability" - Sonic Youth

I love getting luxe beauty products in boxes and Marc Jacobs is a fabulous brand. I love a good lip oil so I'm super-happy to be able to try this one out! Also, it smells like summer...mmm.

A clean beauty favorite, this facial oil will repair and nourish sun-kissed skin after a long day out. Use it in the morning before applying your go-to SPF and at night after cleansing. 
  • 30 ml / 1 fl oz
  • Plant-based and Leaping Bunny certified
  • Luxurious blend of nourishing all-natural oils and extracts delivers deep hydration and age-fighting antioxidants
  • Rosehip seed oil brightens skin and increases cell turnover, while carrot seed oil fights fine lines and helps to repair sun damage and scars
  • Sea buckthorn extract improves skin elasticity and even treats and prevents breakouts

This oil comes in a heavy glass bottle and is a gorgeous golden color. I love that it contains a great mix of nourishing oils and it smells wonderful, too; Like an herbal, grassy floral, very luxe and layered. Can't wait to give this a try on my always-dry skin!

Next out is the MELINDA MARIA Star Lariat Necklace ($120).

The stars have aligned on this staple accessory of the season. Designed in partnership with Rachel Zoe, this gold necklace will pair nicely with others or make a statement on its own.
  • 18k Gold Finish
  • 15" length, 2.5" drop
  • 3" extender

The detail on this is wonderful. In addition to being a drop style, which I like, the pendant is so detailed. The stars are different sizes and one is a blue stone, while the moon is smooth and the "space" is a rougher texture. It's beautiful!

Last out is the WALTER BAKER Tulum Caftan ($198).

A lightweight, every-weekend piece that can be worn over your bathing suit or t-shirt and jean shorts combo. Make a splash with your poolside style in this tropical print. 
  • OSFM
  • Length: 49"
  • Sleeve length: 18 1/2"
  • Sleeve Opening: 14"
  • Waist: 30" (Measured flat, un-cinched)
  • 100% Polyester

This caftan is in a gorgeous tropical print! It's sheer and fairly long; I'd say mid-calf, depending on your height. It has long side slits that keep it from being dowdy-looking.

I didn't realize until I received it that it has a drawstring tie waist. Yay! This will make it much more flattering when tied.

That was the Summer 2021 Curateur box! It's always a good mix of fashion and beauty and I love getting new pieces to wear each season. 

I know I'll be using the bag and the necklace heavily and I can't wait to try out that caftan with different looks (along with my swimsuit this summer). The lip oil and facial oil will also go into the skincare rotation. Thanks, Curateur, for another fabulous box!

My box had a value of $497 this season! That's fabulous for a $99.99 box. Your box value will vary depending on what you choose (I'll show you the choices for the season below).


Both are a great choice for the season. I'm loving the caftan but that towel looks large and soft and I love the design. Such a hard choice!

I have an exclusive discount code for you guys!
