POPSUGAR Must Have is a monthly subscription box filled with full-sized fashion, beauty and home items, curated by Lisa Sugar and her team of editors. The box is $39.95 a month, or less if you subscribe for 3 or 6 months. The total value of the box is always over $100, and most of the times the items are worth it, so I think it`s a pretty good deal. The August POPSUGAR Must Have is a special box because it`s their 5th anniversary and all the goodies are party and friendship oriented. As always the first thing I reach out to when I open the box is their very informative card, where you can find details and retail prices of each item in the box.
Lets see all the surprises in the August 2017 POPSUGAR Must Have Box:
1. PASTEL Cheers Lacquered Tray ($28) – It`s impossible not to grin when you see this joyful tray adorned with the word “Cheers!” surrounded by colorful confetti. Use the tray to serve your guests drinks, as a catch-all tray for your phone, keys, and other daily items, or on a coffee table to enhance your decor.
I absolutely love this tray. It`s super girly and cute, and it makes me happy just looking at it. It is very well made, it doesn`t look or feel cheap and it’s definitely something I will display somewhere in my house.
2. FIRST AID BEAUTY 5 in 1 Bouncy Mask ($38) – Celebrate yourself with a quick and easy pampering session by applying this problem-solving mask to your face. After a nourishing 10 minutes, it will make your skin look brighter and firmer.
I’ve tried a couple of First Aid Beauty products that I received from subscription boxes, but I never had this 5 in 1 Bouncy Mask before. I loved the tingling sensation from this mask and the gel-like texture. It’s very easy and fun to apply, it’s not messy and it left my skin super smooth, soft and fresh. I will continue using it at least once or twice a week.
3. DOGEARED Friendship Bracelet With Small Open Heart ($34) – Thank you for being such loyal friends. We hope you love this precious friendship bracelet as much as we do. It`s a symbol of our appreciation to you, but we also don’t mind if you gift a friend with it to show them how much you care.
While I don’t think I will ever spend $34 on this bracelet, I am very glad I got it in my box. It is super adorable, I already wore it a few times and it always makes me smile when I look at it.
4. MERI MERI Gold Glitter Candles ($7.50) – Glitter always makes candles sparkle even more! These white and gold shimmering candles are sure to make any event with loved ones even more memorable.
These candles are really cute. I will probably just wait until November and use them for my birthday 🙂
5. FRINGE STUDIO Free Spirit Journal – Sponsored by JEEP ($16) – A pretty notebook is the perfect location to record your favorite milestones and memories. This rose gold version features a chic ribbon so you never lose your place as you aim to find your true north.
One of my favorite items from the box is this notebook. It’s super compact and cute, and it’s something that I will absolutely buy myself when I see in the store. I needed one at the moment so I can keep a track of different events that I have and also write down notes related to my job.
6. GOODIE GIRL COOKIES Chocolate Chunk ($2.95) – Treat yourself sans guilt with some of our favorite cookies. The delectable sweets are free of gluten and peanuts without skimping on taste.
Those cookies were pretty good. Me and my son finished them in a minute. 🙂
Special Extra: SHOPTIQUES.COM $25 Gift Card – Loved that small boutique you visited while on vacation? With the help of Shoptiques, you can still shop it when you get home. Choose a stylish item from boutiques across the globe with this gift card.
This gift card is a nice surprise. I will definitely use it as soon as I have some free time to look over their website and choose something interesting.
The Verdict: The total value of this box is $151 and I think that it was very well curated. One thing that I would change if I could is the candles, just because I won`t put them in use anytime soon.
