April 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box

all natural soy wax produce candles charleston sc

Produce Candles Rhubarb Spring Candle, $20

This candle smells amazing! I have not burned it yet. To be honest I am not a candle type of girl. I am more of a plug in or oil diffusing type of a girl. But this candle smells so delightful that I have to burn it! I am currently using an oil diffuser that I got from March’s PopSugar Box and when the diffuser is finished I will burn this candle! $20 does seem like a bit much for a candle but I am not a candle aficionado so maybe $20 is reasonable, is it?

one love organics gardenia tea antioxidant body serum

One Love Organics Gardenia + Tea Antioxidant Body Serum, $39

This is a body serum that you put on after you get out of the shower to lock in the moisture and then top it off with a moisturizer or sunscreen. It has a light fresh garden like smell. I can’t tell if I like the smell or not (is that weird? haha).  I don’t have the time to use this body serum everyday but I will try to incorporate this body serum into my at-home spa days. I am not sure if I would pay $39 for a body serum since it is not a stand alone product it requires you to put another product on top. I also go through body products a lot so I’m not sure I would want to re-up regularly on a $39 body serum. I mean if this product turns out to be amazing then I’d pay an arm and a leg every month..maybe haha.

reusable bag flip tumble

Flip + Tumble Reusable Bag, $12

I was so happy to get this because I carry a reusable Whole Foods bag in my purse everyday because I randomly will go grocery shopping throughout the week. I like this Flip + Tumble Reusable Bag because it is compact so it’s lighter and takes up less space! I will say $12 for a reusable bag seems a little high.

basil culinary herb garden in a bag

Garden In a Bag Organic Basil, $10

This is a cool idea! You basically grow basil in a bag. I have always wanted to grow something, flowers, herbs or whatever but I didn’t know where to begin. The instructions aren’t as easy as cut bag and add water so I haven’t used it yet. But hopefully one of these weekends I’ll will just read the instructions and do it!

Dabney Lee Umbrella

Dabney Lee Umbrella, $20

I am most excited about this umbrella! When I received this box I was actually on a hunt for a very good umbrella. This umbrella looks pretty and seems to be high quality! It has an auto close and open umbrella..so fancy.

  • PopSugar Must Have Box is a monthly lifestyle subscription box
  • It can include must-have items related to beauty, fashion, food, fitness, home…
  • Includes full size items!
  • Worth of the box is about $100
  • Costs $39.95/monthly

Overall I think this box was okay. I am most excited about the umbrella and everything else is pretty good.The box also came with a $25 gift card to Mott. Mott sells clothing that protects you from the sun. I am not very excited about the gift card just because I did not see anything at Mott that I would want to purchase. But if your into sun protecting clothing you might enjoy what they offer. I do want to tell you guys that I have decided to unsubscribe to PopSugar. PopSugar has amazing high quality boxes but I love beauty products and PopSugar is more of a lifestyle box. Right now in my life I really prefer beauty subscriptions. I might subscribe to PopSugar again or check in to see what is in the monthly boxes and just buy the products that interest me.

The total value of this box is about $100.00

March 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box

march 2015 popsugar box

  • PopSugar Must Have Box is a monthly lifestyle subscription box
  • It can include must-have items related to beauty, fashion, food, fitness, home…
  • Includes full size items!
  • Worth of the box is about $100
  • Costs $39.95/monthly

Themes for the March 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box: Renewal, Citrus, Spring Break, Fresh, Traveling.

popsugar micro magic

Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Mascara, deluxe sample set

I have been seeing this mascara everywhere on the internet. I am excited to try it! It’s suppose to be an “ultracurling” mascara.

Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional, deluxe sample set

Surprisingly I haven’t tried this primer before. I have huge pores and texture on my skin so I am happy to try this!

Bliss Micromagic Microdermabrasion Treatment, $48

This is a face exfoliate and I am an exfoliate junkie. I love trying new ones! 

half pps halfpopped popcorn

Halfpops Halfpopped Popcorn, $1.69

These look tasty but you guys know that I am generally a clean eater so I passed this along to my mother.

Wet Brush The Squirt, $4.99

I am excited to try this. I won’t be using it on my natural hair ( I only use wide tooth combs on my natural hair) but, I will try this on my wet kinky straight extensions.

Knock Knock What to Pack Pad, $7

This is a pad that gives you a list of things to pack. I always print out packing lists from online but next time I travel I will whip this bad boy out!

The Archivist Lemon Cucumber

Greenmarket Purveying Co. The Archivist Lemon + Cucumber Reed Diffuser Kit, $20

I have this diffusing in my room right now and it is such a nice scent, very spring! I have never used a diffuser before I usually use plug ins because I am scared of candles. But I am now a diffuser lover!

Samudra Pink Pina Zip Pouch, $40

This is a hot pink zip pouch that is see through. I can see myself using this for toiletries for when I am traveling!

I  feel the spring vibe in this box. It’s not an overwhelming vibe but I feel it.  I love the Lemon + Cucumber Reed Diffuser Kit. I am most excited for that product. I am also really happy to try out the Bliss Microdermabrasion Treatment which I will use during my at home spa days. I am intrigued by the Wet Brush because it can be quite difficult to comb my kinky straight extensions when they are wet so I hope the brush will help me out. The other 3 products did not grab me as much. I avoid eating popcorn, I liked the idea of the What to Pack Pad but honestly I do not really travel that much to get great use out of it. Although I will use the Samudra Pouch I am not obsessed with the design and I am trying to wrap my head around how the pouch is worth $40. I need to research the brand more to see why it is so expensive. Who would have thought, me the health and beauty lover would be most excited about the diffuser kit in this box haha!

The total value of this box is about $121.68

February 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box

popsugar feb

  • PopSugar Must Have Box is a monthly lifestyle subscription box
  • It can include must-have items related to beauty, fashion, food, fitness, home…
  • Includes full size items!
  • Worth of the box is about $100
  • Costs $39.95/monthly

Themes for the February 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box: “One Love, Hearts & Arrows, Red Hot, Devine Desserts and Pampering”

acme

Acme Party Box Company Bamboo Heart Cutting Board and Cheese Knife, $32

This came inside a beautiful canvas-like bag. I love how cute it is! I will for sure use this for cutting cheese!

U.S Apothecary Rose Water Bubble Bath, $30

I am not a bath kind of girl. I really prefer pamper showers. I wasn’t crazy about the smell. I’ll save this for special occasions or I might re-gift!

Chuao Chocolatier Ravishing Rocky Road Bar, $4

I know we all love chocolate on Valentine’s Day and it goes with the theme but I’m eating clean so I couldn’t really devour this. But, I did have a few pieces just to sample and I did think it was delicious. 

tarte blush finger paint

Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush , $26

I was so surprised to see a Tarte blush in this box! The color however is very light and I’m not sure if it will show up on my skin but I will give it a try!

Sally Beauty Finger Paints Nail Color (Pink Imagination), $5.49

I do like Finger Paints and I love colors like this but I’ve been a gel nail girl since September. I can still see my self rocking this color on my gel off days!

Figs & Rouge 100% Natural Lip Balm (Lemon Berry), $8

I loved to collect and try out different lip balms. I liked this one a lot!

popsugar bauble bar

Bauble Bar Mini Arrow Pendant Necklace Silver, $32

I really like Bauble Bar so I am happy we got a piece from them. I do prefer statement pieces but this necklace is still cute.

products from popsugar february

I loved how all the products centered around love and basically Valentine’s Day. As a single lady I appreciated the box because it felt like a treat for Valentine’s Day but I guess if you celebrate the holiday with a significant other you could use many of the products to get ready for a date night.  I haven’t tried all the products but so far I really liked the lip balm and the chocolates. I am most excited to use the cutting board! I really liked that this box had a mixture of food,skincare, home, jewelry and cosmetics. I thought it was perfectly balanced. Although I recognized that this was a great well thought out box this month, not many of the products really grab me. I am happy to try them and receive them but I’m not obsessed (you know what I mean?)

The total value of this box is about $140

I give this box a rock solid B-/C+!

january 2015 popsugar must have 4

This month’s box was pretty good. I like that there was food (yum, yum!), skincare and lifestyle items! It was a nice variety. Now you beauties know I am a makeup person so I was kind of hoping for an eye shadow or lip gloss but I’m still satisfied with the box (I have too much  a lot of makeup anyway!) I have tried the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream and it’s AMAZING! (this might be my new staple body cream). I am on a weight loss journey (lost 30lbs so far, I will have blog posts about it soon!) and granola doesn’t fit into my healthy eating lifestyle however I have tried the Nature Valley Granola and it is yummy! I’ll probably give it to my mom or eat it here and there. The Manduka eQua Yoga Hand Towel is perfect for me because I can use it at the gym during cardio or spinning class!  I am really excited to wear the Jack + Lucy Pom Pom hat (it is freezing and snowing like crazy here in Boston womp.womp!) and the ToGoSpa IceWater Eyes (I really like beauty eye patches!) I’ll probably try the tattoos in spring/summer. I’ve never tried these tattoos before but they are very trendy right now! And who doesn’t love a super cute pink coffee cup! (the answer is no one my friends…no one!)

The total value of this box is about $140

I give this box a rock solid A+!
