Alright, I have another first impression post for a brand that has grown popular over the internet and that brand is called Sand Cloud. If you’ve never heard of it, Sand Cloud is a company that sells T-shirts, towels, stickers, water bottles, …. and I think that’s really it, but I think they have plans to expand their range of products in the fall. But anyway, they donate 10% of each sale and it goes right back to the ocean. Well not literally, but it goes back to organizations that help save marine life.
So now that we have a little idea of what the brand sells and what they stand for, I’m going to do a mini haul and give you my first impressions of these products.
I guess we’ll start with the towel. The towel I bought is the Wanderlust towel and it’s just a nice rainbow tye dye pattern. I’m not going to lie, when I first saw these towels on the website, just with the way they looked, the towels look like they’re just really thin, almost like a bedsheet. But as I opened it up in the mail and got a feel for it, literally, I found that it’s actually thicker than I thought it would be. If I were to compare it to anything, I’d say it’s almost like a good quality table cloth. This towel is definitely better than I thought it would be.
I also got some T-shirts, well one T-shirt and a tank top to be exact, but my first impression is the same for both of them. Now as far as the design, I think it looks really just colorful and perfect for the summer season. I especially like how on the tank top the logo is very visible and clearly stands out. It doesn’t stand out as much on the mint green shirt, but it all looks cute. As for the quality of the shirt, it’s not my favorite. I was really hoping that the shirts would be soft and just thinner, especially for the price you’re paying. However, it’s thick and almost stiff-like, but I think after a couple of washes, it’ll soften up.
Lastly, I ordered some of their stickers. I’m going to be honest, I was a little bit disappointed because I thought the stickers were going to be bigger, they just looked bigger on the product photo on the website, but I think maybe that’s because they zoomed in for it. Also, in my order, it said I was going to be getting 6 of those stickers, the ones that say “#Savethefishies.” However, I only got 4 of those, and got 4 of the other stickers that have the Sand Cloud logo on it. So yes, I’m a little disappointed that I didn’t get what I ordered, or at least what I thought I ordered, but I kind of got over it.
Now here is the funny part. If you have heard of Sand Cloud before, you’d know that they really advertise themselves and they have a brand ambassador program, in which I think they accept everyone. They give you a promo code, and you share that everywhere, the people that use your code get a discount and you get paid. However, I don’t believe you actually get paid in cash, but in store credit. Well anyway, I didn’t apply because I didn’t want to be an ambassador for something I didn’t believe in or didn’t completely love. But they sent me bracelets that they only send to their brand ambassadors, and they sent me a little card that said welcome to the brand ambassador program. I don’t think it’s official yet because I don’t have a code, but I just thought it was strange. I’ve thought about it, but I wanted to wait until I for sure knew I wanted to represent this brand.
So all in all, I was very pleased with the towel, I liked the stickers, and I liked the design for the shirts, but I need to wait a couple of washes to give you my full review on them. Thank you so much for reading!
