POPSUGAR Must Have Spring 2020 Review

Spring is wrapping up and summer is quickly approaching, which means it’s about time I shared my POPSUGAR Must Have Spring 2020 review! If you’ve been a PBTT reader for any length of time, then you’ll know I’ve been a POPSUGAR subscriber for many, many years! I still have mixed feelings about their switch from monthly to seasonal boxes, but no matter what, I love seeing these boxes show up in my mailbox!

If you’re interested in subscribing too, you can get $20 off your first box! What a great deal!

POPSUGAR Must Have Spring 2020 Review

My Lab, Parker, loves checking out my boxes each season and looking to see if any of the items are for him! Unfortunately for him, none of the items this season are for pups! I did try to put the blue-light glasses on him and he was NOT having it! LOL

Popsugar Spring 2020 Beauty

Omorovicza – Magic Moisture Mist – Retail Value $95

I’m always so intrigued by the beauty items that POPSUGAR includes each season. They’re typically from high-ends brands I’ve never tried before.

This moisture mist certainly fits that bill! I had to enlist one of my friends to help me figure out what exactly a ‘moisture mist’ is for. She’s a beauty guru and let me know a few different ways this spray can be used. After trying a few different things, I decided that I like it best when sprayed right after my morning moisturizer and before I apply my foundation.

If you’re wary about face sprays, this one really is great! The mist is SO FINE, way better than some of the other options out there. If you’ve ever used a ‘chunky’ face spray, then you know how important and refreshing a nice mist can be!

Glow Recipe – Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask – Retail Value $42

I LOVE a good eye mask! Especially one that is clearly marked with its intended daypart. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been bitten by eye creams that are for daytime use and are not labeled as such.

If you’ve never experienced the horrible sleep (or complete lack thereof) that comes with using a daytime eye cream at night, you are extremely lucky. If you have experienced all that loveliness, then give this eye cream a try! It’s rich, a pretty green color, and doesn’t disrupt your beauty sleep with caffeine.

POPSUGAR Spring 2020 Dishware

Canvas Home – Shell Bisque Cereal Bowls – Retail Value $66

If you know anything about me, then you probably know that I LOVE color! Light colors, dark colors, bright colors — all colors are for me!

Here’s a peak inside my dish cabinet. As you can see these new cereal bowls (pictured bottom right) fit right in!

Have you ever seen a happier kitchen cabinet? I sure haven’t!

POPSUGAR Spring 2020 Lifestyle

Bluma Project – Luna Necklace in Sand – Retail Value $75

This season, we were able to choose what color necklace we wanted. Between blue and beige-blush, I clearly went with the more neutral option!

I don’t wear a ton of statement jewelry these days but figured that the more neutral option would be best. I’m definitely more likely to wear it if it’s easy to match with my clothes.

Unfortunately, we’ve been on quarantine since my box arrived, so I haven’t had a chance to take this necklace for a spin yet. I’m excited to pair it with a few things as soon as quarantine lifts though. I think it’ll look great with a black blouse and high-waisted jeans!

The Book Club – Anti Blue Light Lenses – Retail Value $30

I’ve been intrigued by blue-light glasses for some time now, so I was very excited to see these included in my box this season. POPSUGAR let us choose between four styles, and I went with a clear, cateye shape. I have a pair of prescription cateye glasses, which I adore, so I figured cateye would be fun for these too.

I wear prescription glasses almost everyday and always at work, so I knew when I tried these out, I’d have to wear my contacts. I have pretty dry eyes, so I typically only wear contacts on days when I’m in the water or doing a big activity.

After trying blue-light glasses, I don’t think I’m a big fan. It’s not the glasses’ fault though. The glasses are super cute and very nice, they just aren’t for me.

I found that my eyes get too dry while wearing my contacts to comfortably wear them for a full workday. Also, it’s quite distracting that the second you put the glasses on, your entire field of vision has a yellow tint. I understand that’s how the technology works, but I just can’t get behind that. I work with a lot of color in my life and am not comfortable wearing glasses that distort my perception of that color. Like I said though, that’s all on me and not the glasses. The glasses are adorable and functional if you have the right eyes!

POPSUGAR Spring 2020 Crystals

Smudge Wellness – Glow Spell – Retail Value $49.50

Here’s another item that’s pretty but just not for me. I’m not a believer in crystals, tarot cards, etc., so I’m just not quite sure what to do with these.

I work with a girl who is all about crystals though, so I may check with her and see if she’s interested in these ones!

POPSUGAR Spring 2020 Special Extras

Yogi – Blackberry Apple Cider Digestive Awakening Tea – Special Extra

I love a good cup of tea! Especially caffeine-free tea before bed. There’s just something so soothing about it.

I was a little skeptical of the ‘apple cider vinegar’ aspect, but as long as you don’t sniff the tea bag too hard before steeping, you might never notice that it has apple cider vinegar in it. All in all, a very tasty before-bed tea option.

Clorox Scentiva – Disinfecting Wipes – Special Extra

Like I mentioned earlier, I received this box right after the mandatory quarantine started her in Florida. I don’t think POPSUGAR could’ve planned a better extra than Clorox wipes! How convenient that these showed up at my door right as all the stores were selling out of cleaning supplies!

I already have an open container of wipes, so I’m saving these to begin using as soon as my current container is empty. I’m most looking forward to the grapefruit one — citrus is one of my all-time favorite scents!

POPSUGAR Must Have Spring 2020 Review

Well there you have it, my full POPSUGAR Must Have Spring 2020 review! This box has a total retail value of $357.50, which is remarkable! My favorite items this season (and Parker’s favorites too) are the eye cream and the cereal bowls!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: September 2017

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: September 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Hello, everyone!

My POPSUGAR Must Have box has arrived! Yay! Yay! My POPSUGAR and PLAY! boxes actually arrived on the same day this month. Talk about some serious happy mail!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: September 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

The September box has some fall-ish vibes with a darker color palette! I’m really loving it!

Box Contents:

  • Hudson + Bleecker – Bonjour Smartphone Wallet – Dusty Rose
  • Figs & Rouge – Hydra Prime Light Reflective Brightening Primer & Illuminator
  • Buji Baja by Hat Attack – Coco Flower Pin
  • Richer Poorer – Wool Striped Nora Sock – Charcoal & Black
  • Lipstick Queen – Black Lace Rabbit Cream Blush
  • Pipsnacks – Kettle Pipcorn

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: September 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Hudson + Bleecker – Bonjour Smartphone Wallet – Dusty Rose – Retail Value $47

I received some travel bags from Hudson + Bleecker in a previous POPSUGAR box and absolutely love them! I use the makeup bag from that set every single time I travel!

I have a lot of wallets, and I’m happy to add this beauty to the rotation. Inside it has four card slots, one longer, money slot, and a large, open space that will fit a cell phone, lipgloss, and a few other small items. Basically, this wallet will fit all of the essentials. Perfection!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: September 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Figs & Rouge – Hydra Prime Light Reflective Brightening Primer & Illuminator – Retail Value $45

Primer (along with mascara) is one of those frequent fliers in the world of subscription boxes. I’m not complaining though! I love that I never need to buy mascara or primer! 🙂

I switch back and forth between illuminating and smoothing primers depending on the day. The Figs & Rouge primer looks rather dark when it comes out of the bottle but goes on very sheer. I’ve been using it for several days now and like the results. I’ll be using this primer until the bottle is empty!

 

Buji Baja by Hat Attack – Coco Flower Pin – Retail Value $17

This little, flower pin is just adorable! My winter coat is navy (and I don’t mix navy and black), so I need to figure out a cute place to pin this baby!

POPSUGAR suggests attaching it to your purse, coat (already ruled this one out), blouse, or bracelet.  I’ll have to see if it looks cute with one of my fall purses!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: September 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Richer Poorer – Wool Striped Nora Sock – Charcoal & Black – Retail Value $22

SOCKS!!! I love socks! Especially wool ones! Living in central Florida, wool socks are hard to come by. We rarely have days that are cold enough to warrant wool socks. But you can bet that I’ll be wearing these bad boys on the cold days we do have! 🙂

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: September 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Lipstick Queen – Black Lace Rabbit Cream Blush – Retail Value $25

Two beauty items in one month? Yes, please!

I love the Lipstick Queen color-changing lipstick from the May box, so I was super pumped to see a color-changing blush in this month’s box.

The blush starts out black and then turns to a berry shade once it’s been applied to your skin. The intensity of the berry is determined by your skin’s pH. I love beauty products that adjust to each user!

Since this is a cream blush, I ‘ve been applying it with my fingers. I’ve been taking my middle finger, swirling it around the compact, dabbing the product on the apples of my cheeks, and then smoothing it out with my other fingers. I also use a stippling brush to further smooth out the “edges” of the blush on my cheeks.

This berry hue is going to be just perfect for fall! Next, maybe POPSUGAR will give me a lipstick to round out my fall, beauty look! 😉

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: September 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Pipsnacks – Kettle Pipcorn – Retail Value $4.99

You know what’s better than the POPSUGAR snacks each month? FULL-SIZE POPSUGAR snacks!! I absolutely love it when POPSUGAR sends a full-size package of their featured snack. That way, you can really enjoy the snack and figure out if it’s something you’d like to purchase again in the future.

You know what else I love? Kettle Corn! I love the sweet. I love the salty.  I just love it!

Also, that’s not a typo above. This product really is called “Pipsnacks” and “Pipcorn” because the corn is actually teeny tiny and pipsqueak size. So cute and fun to eat!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: September 2017

The total retail value for the September box is $160.99! That’s pretty fantastic!

I love all of this month’s products and have already started using half of them. The other half I will begin using very soon!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: September 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: May 2017

Hello, everyone!

It’s POPSUGAR Must Have time! One of my favorite times of the month!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: May 2017 - Pink Bows &amp; Twinkle Toes

Box Contents:

  • Lipstick Queen – Mornin’ Sunshine
  • Samantha Faye – Samantha Faye Inspiration Cuff
  • Tocca – Voyage Montauk 3 oz Candle
  • Swing Design – Essex Silver Plate Frame
  • Southern Culture Artisan Foods, Inc – Strawberry Cream Muffin Mix
  • Nicely Noted – Exclusive Must Have Card Collection

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: May 2017 - Pink Bows &amp; Twinkle Toes

Lipstick Queen – Mornin’ Sunshine – Retail Value $25

I LOVE lip products, so I was super excited when I pulled this out of my box!  I’d seen this yellow lipstick in an Ulta email (I think) a few weeks ago, so I knew that it was color changing as soon as I opened the package.

The yellow is supposed to change to a custom coral shade when you apply it.  When I apply it, it turns a bright pink shade.  It’s not coral in the slightest, but I still really like it!  I’ve already worn it a few times and know I’ll continue wearing it throughout the summer months.

Samantha Faye – Samantha Faye Inspiration Cuff – Retail Value $60

This bracelet is a POPSUGAR exclusive, which is always fun!  I like having products that are made especially for me (and thousands of other subscribers!)

“Be good Do good Feel good” is inscribed on the front of the cuff.  I think it’s going to go really well with so many outfits!  It’s simple + neutral and will blend with almost anything!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: May 2017 - Pink Bows &amp; Twinkle Toes

Tocca – Voyage Montauk 3 oz Candle – Retail Value $20

I LOVE candles!  In my college apartment, I used to burn one at least five hours out of the day.

The scent is incredible!  I love how fresh + clean cucumbers are!  I haven’t lit it yet, but I can smell it unlit from across the room! Yum!!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: May 2017 - Pink Bows &amp; Twinkle Toes

Swing Design – Essex Silver Plate Frame – Retail Value $13

I love how classic + chic this frame is.  The silver plating is very shiny and will compliment any decorating style.  I’m partial to shabby chic and this will go so very well!

Now, I just have to decide what photo to put in it! 🙂

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: May 2017 - Pink Bows &amp; Twinkle Toes

Southern Culture Artisan Foods, Inc – Strawberry Cream Muffin Mix – Retail Value $7.99

Muffins! YUM!

As soon as I saw this in my box, I’d knew they’d be perfect to make on Mother’s Day morning! My mom loved the idea as well!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: May 2017 - Pink Bows &amp; Twinkle Toes

To top off the muffins and make them a tad sweeter, I added some homemade strawberry sauce that my mom and I made after picking strawberries a few months ago!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: May 2017 - Pink Bows &amp; Twinkle Toes

Nicely Noted – Exclusive Must Have Card Collection – Retail Value $17.50

If you follow me on Instagram (which you should be! @pinkbowstwinkletoes), then you know how obsessed I am with pretty cards, stationery, and notebooks!  These cards are right up my alley!

These are all so cute that I’m having trouble picking a favorite!  I absolutely love the mix + match envelopes! I have a friend (maybe two) with summer birthdays, so I’ll get to use the “Summer Birthday Vibes” card very soon!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: May 2017 - Pink Bows &amp; Twinkle Toes

The total retail value for this month’s box is $143.49.  That’s not too shabby!

I think my favorite items this month are the lipstick and the candle! I love everything though! There isn’t a single item from the May box that I won’t use.  That’s fantastic!
