It might be August, but that doesn’t at all mean an end of beach season. No swimming after Labor Day – ok, Boomer! In the middle of August summer still has a lot of life and heat left, especially if you live in SoCal. And Beachly knows it!
Beachly is a company that I have been familiar with for a while as I thoroughly enjoyed quite a few of their boxes so far. Living in Newport Coast means that you can go to the beach year round. Sure, you might not desire skinny dipping in the middle of February, but walk and enjoy sunshine – pretty much any time!
All that being said, I am addicted to all things beach: from accessories and jewelry to flowy tunics and scarfs. All of that and more come every three months with my Beachly box.
In addition to the original box, which is geared towards women, the company also has men’s box and now a brand new just released monthly Beauty box. So there are plenty of choices for everybody to get just about as often as desired.
The biggest news for me was not the new Beauty box, but the opening of a Beachly Boutique store not far from where I live. I was not going to miss this event, so I packed my family in the car last weekend and made a trip to Carlsbad Village.
The action took place on August 14th at 2680 State Street, Carlsbad, California 92008. Between 2 and 4pm there was food, drinks, live music, and of course some sweet deals to be had.
It truly felt like a celebration of summer, complete with balloons and umbrellas, and full of people in flip flops and shorts. Those lucky first customers got to enjoy some great sale prices and opportunity to see products that are not available anywhere else firsthand.
I loved the breezy vibe of the store – natural wood walls and ceiling combined with white and blue colors. Visitors were gathering around shirts, rompers, sweatshirts, and straw beach bags.
Beachly monthly Beauty box subscription starting price at the store was just $29 and that attracted a lot of attention.
My seasonal box is $99 and includes products retailing for over $250, so Beachly Beauty box’s price definitely looked good, especially given the value of $75+. I think all beautiful Insta influencers will have a ball with this and I just might join them.
All the shelves and stands were stocked with refreshing beauty and skincare products that are meant to pamper sun kissed skin and hair.
There were scented candles lit and white coral jewelry holders.
I loved seeing so many choices for natural beauty products and makeup. I have tested many products myself, thanks to my previous boxes, so I knew how good many of them are.
There were local handmade soaps, wraps, body scrubs and oils, sun screens, lip balms, and of course jewelry, lots of it – made of metal, leather, and shells.
Besides beauty and accessories, Beachly Boutique features various household items.
You could find artisan salt sets, eco-friendly food storage options, wooden table wear, candles, and much more.
My husband and kids mostly enjoyed live music by two guys who looked like they just came from Hawaii. Beachly hosted a Grand Opening Raffle for a chance to win $200 shopping spree with all proceedings going to Sea Trees, an organization supporting regeneration of ocean plant life.
The charitable side of Beachly I loved from my very first box, because part of money spent is always donated to organizations that work to save and protect our oceans.
Finally, my favorite part of the Grand Opening Day celebration was the discounts: 20% off everything and 30% off everything for Beachly members, which I proudly am. Needless to say, I bought a few things, because it can never be too much beach in my life.

For those who live within a drive to Carlsbad, I definitely recommend visiting this cute store, because of the mood and the deals. For the rest of us salty air lovers, you should totally give Beachly subscription box a try and see what a little ocean saving beach mood can do for you. I know I will be back to the store and will for sure continue with the boxes!
