Popsugar Must Have August Box 2014 – Unboxing and First Impressions
I love monthly subscription boxes and while I’ve had my fair share of them, I think the Popsugar Must Have box is definitely one that you must try out at least once. This awesome subscription delivers a plethora of treats from beauty and skin care to food, fashion and more and for just $39.95 a month, shipping included. I love receiving this box because I know that everything included is full size so I’m definitely getting my money’s worth with just a couple of items. This month there was a range of surprises and treats that I couldn’t wait to dig into. Check out my video embedded below to see the unboxing, or click here to watch it directly on YouTube. Scroll down to see all the delectable treats and fine goods I got in my August box.
The Paddywax Ocean Tide + Sea Salt Mini Jar Candle ($10) smells like a beautiful sea breeze in a jar. Fragrance notes of sea salt and the ocean tide, this soy-wax candle brings the beach directly to you. I love the scent… it is subtle but you still get an awesome fragrance from it. The packaging is awesome and reminds me of sea glass. When I use up the candle, I will be saving the jar for little knick-knacks or to make my own little candle DIY. www.paddywax.com
The thinkThin Brownie Crunch High Protein Bar didn’t last long. After snapping the photo, I ate it in a quick jiffy. This was a special extra in the box this month and I really did enjoy it. It has a nice chocolate taste and is 20g of Protein, 0g of Sugar and great for on the go or after a work out for a quick snack.
Next in the box was the Kendra Scott Elisa Necklace in Black Cat’s Eye ($50). I was very excited to get this necklace because those that know me, know I’m big on natural minerals and stones, crystals and such and this will be a great addition to my growing jewelry collection. It’s set in 14k gold over brass, and I love Gold jewelry and it has a gorgeous black oval stone that is classic and timeless. This is the first and only piece I own from Kendra Scott so I’m very proud to have this in this month’s box. This piece alone pays for the entire box and then some… so the rest of the goodies included are actually extra goodies. www.kendrascott.com
The Goodbyn Purple Meal & Dipper Set ($8.00) Now – this next item is awesome for me and I’m super excited to get it. First off… it’s purple, yes… praise the purple loving Gods… it’s purple. Then it is an awesome way to keep track of meal portions and is a great portable way for me to travel with a meal when I’m on the go. I’m so busy sometimes, I skip out on a meal because I just don’t have the time, but this will really give me the option to pack something to eat ahead of time and be on my way. www.goodbyn.com
The Mason Jar Cookie Company Celebrate! Cookie Mix ($12) Being a mommy of boys, goodies are essential and I’m always looking to add new treats to our foodie line-up. We haven’t had the chance to bake these up yet, but know that I will post all about it once I do. This treat is festive and ready to go – just add butter and an egg and bake it up for a delectable treat. www.masonjarprovisions.com
Lollia At Last Perfumed Shower Gel ($22). I was pretty excited to see this in my box, because I have heard of the brand but have never tried the products before. It smells really nice, but sadly – my box was a complete mess when it arrived due to the fact that this shower gel leaked everywhere. It seems like the cap was not tight on the bottle and even after cleaning it up and tightening the cap, it continues to leak. This shower gel is infused with shea butter and jojoba oil so I’m excited to give it a whirl with what I have left in the bottle.
Ooh La La – the Bite Beauty Lush Fruit Lip in Popsugar was a surprise to me but I was so excited to get it. ($22.00). I’m a huge fan of the brand and this will be the first lip gloss that I have been able to try. To celebrate Popsugar’s Must Have’s second birthday, Bite Beauty created this new shade for the occasion and it’s so sweet. Strawberry, Coconut and avocado oils leave my lips yummy and pink. www.sephora.com/bite-beauty
The shade of Popsugar is a tad sheer, but it’s a gorgeous shade nonetheless and I love how it feels on the lips. A little sticky but not so much that it’s irritating to use. Definitely a gorgeous color.
Overall – I’m quite impressed with this month’s Popsugar box. Overall I received a total of $124+ worth of products and all of them in full size. Each month the Must Have box is $39.95 and includes full size goodies for you to test out. I love the goodies Popsugar sends out because this particular box is much more lifestyle based, then beauty – so you get a variety of goodies that you can use on yourself or with your family in mind.
