POPSUGAR Must Have box


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.

As you can see – the box was filled with a bunch of awesome goodies.

Paddywax Candle

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

thinkThin brownie crunch high protein bar

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.

Kendra Scott Elisa necklace

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

Goodbyn Purple Meal and Dipper Set

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

Mason Jar Cookie Company

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

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.

Bite Beauty Lush Fruit Lip

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

Bite Beauty Popsugar

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.  Have you tried the Popsugar Must Have box?  If not – is this something you may be interested in?  If you have, what are your thoughts?  Popsugar is a great way to try out some new things, click here to learn more about it.

DISCLAIMER: POPSUGAR provided me with a complimentary POPSUGAR Must Have box. The opinions I have shared about the box are my own and POPSUGAR did not tell me what to say or how to say it.

Yay me!  I swear, I am always amazed with the perks that come with being a Blogger, but more so when I get to try out new and exciting things and realize how lucky I truly am.  I had the awesome opportunity to receive the April POPSUGAR Must-have Box and it was filled with goodies different from my normal that I’m used to receiving from other Subscription boxes.  Check out what I got and all the goodies inside.

Included in April’s box was a total of 6 items – I have them outlined for you as well as the price break down for your reference.

Blue Avocado (Eco) Shopper

THE BLUE AVOCADO (ECO) SHOPPER – retails for $25.00

This awesome little shopper was a joint effort between Lauren Conrad and BlueAvocado.  It is a collapsible tote (perfect for carrying groceries) and is made from upcycled plastic bottles.  It folds neatly into a wallet-sized pouch and fits perfectly into my purse.  This is awesome!  In Hawaii – on my island, stores no longer offer you plastic bags and many require you have your own shopping bag for groceries so I will make great use out of this.

Too Faced Natural Eyes


I was beyond excited to hear that this product was in other people’s boxes and certainly could not wait to get my hands on it.  I have been eyeing this palette for a while and being a huge Too Faced addict, I was jumping for joy inside.  This palette is perfect for the gal who loves a natural look.  It includes nine different shades and the color range is perfect for every age and every skin tone.  Included is a glamour guide (like most Too Faced palettes) that you can use to create looks or be inspired and the shades included are a combination of matte, satin and shimmer.  I’m seriously diggin’ this!

POPSUGAR Must-have April Box

GRAPHIC IMAGE POCKET NOTES – retails for $20.00

This awesome little notebook is sweet, stylish and a great size to throw into the purse.  Made with silver edges, acid-free paper and a flexible cover with the words “Run the World” on the cover – I am surely inspired to keep blog posts and more in this notebook that fits perfectly in the pocket or in my purse for on the go inspiration.


Who doesn’t need hand soap?  As a mom of three boys, we have hand soap everywhere in the house and I’m always on the hunt for new scents that I love.   This hand soap has  a combination of floral aromas that have a light but great scent.  The soap is gentle but hardworking and free of any harmful chemicals.

POPSUGAR Must-have April Box


Seriously… how “Awesome” is it to display something that says “totally awesome” in your kitchen.  Since nothing but awesome grinds come from my kitchen (yes, I’m bragging – lol), I was very excited to get something like this.  The Awesome tea towel set is such a fresh take on a cute design and I love the bright and bold colors that is so fun for Spring and Summer.  They are handmade from a water-based ink and completely lint-free (woohoo!).  I am looking forward to having fun with these.


Hello goodies and snacks!  Let me first say that I am in love with how awesome these taste but I won’t go into any details since I’ll be doing a full post on my blog all about these goodies in the future.  NatureBox teamed up with Lisa Sugar to design this custom snack mix especially for POPSUGAR Must Have.  NO artificial flavors, NO artificial colors, NO corn syrup and NO hydrogenated oils.  They include a bunch of my favorite snack treats like almonds, soybeans, corn and cranberries – a satisfying crunch for any die hard snacker.  I am seriously addicted to these.

My Thoughts Overall…

Overall – I’m definitely impressed with the April POPSUGAR Must Have box.  It includes a variety of items I know I will get great use out and each product offers great quality.  So let me break it all down for you with regard to how much product you are receiving and the amount you pay.
