IMG_0288

I’m loving the new product info card design!

IMG_0290

Box Contents:

  • Bluma Project – Capri Bracelets – Set of 2
  • Kocostar – Foot Therapy
  • SPONGELLE – Spongology Body Buffer
  • GAIAM – Foldable Yoga Mat
  • Happy Spritz – Breathe Deeply
  • Jimmybar! – Peanut Butter Clutter Jimmybar! Clean Snack Bar

Special Extras:

  • Hint Kick – Black Raspberry Infused Water
  • Revlon – Volume + Length Magnified Mascara
  • Half Hitch Goods – $10 Gift Card

IMG_0282

Bluma Project – Capri Bracelets – Set of 2 – Retail Value $44

I really like the colors of these bracelets!  Navy is one of my favorite colors, and I especially like it with gold!

Unfortunately, these bracelets are a little more boho than I am.  These will make a great gift.  I just need to figure out who that gift would be for!

IMG_0279

Kocostar – Foot Therapy – Retail Value $10

I was very intrigued when I saw this product in the box!

IMG_0319

This is what the treatment looks like when you take it out of the package.

When it’s cut down the middle, it becomes two, little booties to put on your feet.

IMG_0320

Here are my feet in the little booties! 🙂

The instructions say to leave it on your feet for 1.5 hours, so that’s what I did!  I walked around the house a little while wearing them.  They were rather squishy and funny feeling!

I didn’t pay much attention to how my feet felt before the treatment (whoopsie!), but I do believe they are a little softer now.

One thing I didn’t like about this product was that it stripped my toenail polish of its vibrant blue color.  I wasn’t expecting that!

IMG_0275

SPONGELLE – Spongology Body Buffer – Retail Value $20

I’ve received a SPONGELLE product in one of my previous boxes, so I was very excited to see another one in this month’s box!

This buffer smells FANTASTIC and works really well!  When my last Spongology sponge ran out of body wash, I kept the sponge and continued to use it.  I’ll be doing the same when this buffer runs out of soap!

IMG_0286

GAIAM – Foldable Yoga Mat – Retail Value $24.98

I haven’t done yoga in a long time, but I do enjoy it.  Maybe I’ll start up again soon!

Unfortunately, I already have two yoga mats.  At least this one is foldable and doesn’t take up much space!

IMG_0271

Happy Spritz – Breathe Deeply – Retail Value $25

I absolutely love the way this spray smells!  The peppermint and eucalyptus are fantastic!

I’ve sprayed it on my face several times now, and it’s quite nice.  It dries quickly and doesn’t leave you oily or with any residue.  That’s a major plus!

I think this is going to be great the next time I have a cold or a stuffy nose!

IMG_0270

Jimmybar! – Peanut Butter Clutter Jimmybar! Clean Snack Bar – Retail Value $2.49

I was pleasantly surprised by the texture and flavor of this bar.  I was expecting something flavorless and chalky.  It was actually quite moist and had a pretty good flavor!

Hint Kick – Black Raspberry Infused Water – Retail Value $1.69

I’ve never had one of these waters before, so I was quite intrigued by it.

The flavor was okay, but I think it would be much better if they added a little sugar!

IMG_0277

 

Revlon – Volume + Length Magnified Mascara – Retail Value $8.99

This mascara couldn’t have come at a better time!  I’m almost out of my current tube!

I haven’t noticed any difference in the length or volume of my lashes, but I do like that the formula isn’t too wet.  I’ll definitely continue to use it for a while!

The May box also included a $10 gift card for Half Hitch Goods, but I forgot to take a photo of it. I looked on their website and they have some nice things, but I don’t think I’ll be using my $10.

IMG_0227

I’ll end up using almost (or have already used) all of these products, so I’d say the May box was a win!

The total retail value for this box (not including the gift card) is $137.15!  That’s pretty good!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: January 2016

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly POPSUGAR Must Have review!

IMG_7946

My box took FOREVER to arrive this month!  I successfully avoided all of the spoilers though! 🙂

IMG_7954

Each box comes with a little card with details on every product featured for the month.

IMG_7955

Box Contents:

  • Pehr Designs – Pebble Speck Bin
  • Spark Joy by Marie Kondo
  • Patchology – FlashMasque Trio
  • Blue Sky – Day Designer Weekly Planner
  • Not Soap, Radio – Bath & Shower Gel Gift Set
  • Project 7, INC – Summer Snow Sugar Free Gum
  • Chapstick – Total Hydration 100% Natural Soothing Vanilla

IMG_7980

Pehr Designs – Pebble Speck Bin – Retail Value $40

This bin is too cute!  The gray speckles match the decor in my living room perfectly!

IMG_8020

As soon as I opened up the bin, I knew it would be perfect for storing blankets in my living room!

It’s not too big, so it’ll fit perfectly in the corner of the room!

IMG_7961

Spark Joy by Marie Kondo – Retail Value $18.99

Anyone who’s ever been to my apartment knows how much of a mess I am!  I can’t think of someone who could use this book more than me!

The illustrations are super cute and rather helpful!

IMG_7958

Patchology – FlashMasque Trio – Retail Value $20

I’m not a huge fan of face masks but my friend, Lindsey, is.  She happened to come over the day I received my box, so we tried these out together!

I tried the hydration mask and Lindsey tried the illumination one.

I’ve never used a sheet mask before so these were quite interesting!  We were told by several people that we looked like a character from The Silence of the Lambs.

I chose the hydration one because my skin has been a little dry because of the cold weather.  It was a little too hydrating and now I have a few tiny zits! 🙁

I think my skin would’ve had a better reaction if I’d have tried a different mask.  Oh well!

IMG_7962

Blue Sky – Day Designer Weekly Planner – Retail Value $15.99

I was so excited when I saw this cute, little planner in my box!  As you know, I LOVE planners!

IMG_7965

The gold accents and striped bookmark make the planner even cuter!

IMG_7967

I really like the checklists that are included for each day.  Very functional!

IMG_7969

There’s also a standard monthly view.

My friend pointed out how nice it was that the boxes are lined!  A great feature I didn’t even pick up on!

I’m not quite sure what I’m going to use this planner for, but I’m sure I’ll think of something!

IMG_7975

Not Soap, Radio – Bath & Shower Gel Gift Set – Retail Value $22

These soaps are very quirky and fun! Each little bottle has a festive description on it!

I’ve been using “Luck” for the past few days and like it!  It smells really good!

IMG_7978

Project 7, INC – Summer Snow Sugar Free Gum – Retail Value $1.99

I really love how this brand does their packaging!  I’m go to JoAnn’s a lot and they sell Project 7 right by the checkout, so I’m always admiring it.

They have some pretty funky flavors, so before receiving these, I hadn’t tried anything besides their peppermints.

I wouldn’t say the gum tastes like snow cones, but it does have a nice fruity flavor!  I’ll definitely finish the pack!

IMG_7971

Chapstick – Total Hydration 100% Natural Soothing Vanilla – Retail Value $2.99

I’m a HUGE lip balm person!  Burt’s Bees is my brand of choice but Chapstick is still good!

I’ve used this one a few times and it’s very nice.  I like the vanilla.  It’s different than my usual mint flavor.

This is going in my lip balm stock and it’ll be put in rotation soon!

IMG_7950

The total retail value for this box is $ 121.96!  That’s fantastic!

I’m very happy with the January POPSUGAR Must Have box!  I will use every item!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review – September 2015

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly POPSUGAR Must Have review!

IMG_5062To receive fun boxes each month like I do, click here!

IMG_5065Box Contents:

  • Hudson+Bleecker – Labyrinth Onyx Travel Trio
  • Kris Nations – “XO” Stud Earrings
  • Too Faced Cosmetics – Brow Envy
  • Briogeo Rosarco – Milk Reparative Leave-in Conditioning Spray
  • NCLA – So Rich Vitamin-E Enriched Cuticle Oil
  • Nourish Snacks – Almond to Cherries

IMG_5079Hudson+Bleecker – Labyrinth Onyx Travel Trio – Retail Value $42

I love this travel bag set!  It comes with a TSA-friendly clear pouch and then two drawstring bags for shoes and intimates.

IMG_5082I’ll probably end up using the clear bag for sunscreens and the two patterned bags for my shoes.  I absolutely hate it when the bottoms of my shoes touch my clothes in my suitcase, so these are perfect for me!

IMG_5091Kris Nations – “XO” Stud Earrings – Retail Value $35

I love these earrings, and the packaging is pretty great too!  The little jar is glass not plastic, which makes the packaging that much nicer!

These would be perfect for a gift, so I think I’m going to save them!

IMG_5071Too Faced Cosmetics – Brow Envy – Retail Value $39

I absolutely LOVE Too Faced products, so I was pretty excited when I saw that they were going to be featured in the September box.  I just wish they’d given out an eye shadow palette instead of this brow kit.

I know eyebrows are all the rage right now, but I would’ve preferred a different product.

IMG_5074The palette comes with two shades of brow powder, a highlighter, setting wax, tweezers, a brush, and a spoolie.

I don’t ever do anything besides pluck my brows, so I won’t be getting much use out of this product. 🙁

IMG_5088Briogeo Rosarco – Milk Reparative Leave-in Conditioning Spray – Retail Value $20

I love trying new leave-in conditioners, so I was pretty excited when I saw this in my box!

This conditioner is way more watery than I expected and more watery than other leave-in conditioners I’ve used in the past.  I feel like I have to use a ton of it to get the silky texture I’m used to getting with other conditioners.

Even though it’s watery, it smells pretty great!

IMG_5076NCLA – So Rich Vitamin-E Enriched Cuticle Oil – Retail Value $18

I haven’t used many cuticle products in the past, so I’m not exactly sure what this is going to do for me.

I’ve been using it for several days now.  I haven’t seen any results, but it smells pretty great!!

IMG_5085Nourish Snacks – Almond to Cherries – Retail Value $2

This little snack looks awesome!

I love almonds and cherries, so it is perfect for me!

I’m going to pack it in my backpack and take it to class with me tomorrow!

IMG_5065The September POPSUGAR box has a total retail value of $156!  How awesome is that?!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review – August 2015

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly POPSUGAR Must Have review!

IMG_4287To receive fun boxes each month like I do, click here!

IMG_4353Each box comes with a card that gives details on everything included in the box.

IMG_4355Box Contents:

  • American Colors – Mediterranean Plaid Scarf
  • Royal Apothic – Tea Balm Firming Eye Treatment
  • Meri Meri – Toot Sweet Pink Stripe Napkins
  • Southern Culture – Shortstacks Pancake & Waffle Mix
  • Happy Jackson – Yay Lunch! Lunch Box
  • Pastel – Best Day Ever Mug
  • MyYogaWorks – 3-Month Trial
  • Folgers Iced Café – Caramel Macchiato Flavored Coffee Drink Concentrate

I apologize for the weird lighting in all of these photos!  I don’t know what was going on when I took these pictures!

IMG_4347American Colors – Mediterranean Plaid Scarf – Retail Value $79

I can’t tell you how much I love this scarf!  The double-sided patterns make it so fun!

I can’t wait to wear it in the fall!  I have two quilted, puffer vests (one navy and one pink) that will look fantastic with it! 🙂

IMG_4328Royal Apothic – Tea Balm Firming Eye Treatment – Retail Value $36

I always enjoy getting eye creams in subscription boxes.  At this rate, I won’t have to buy another eye cream until 2016! How awesome is that?!

I’ve used this cream for a few days now, and haven’t noticed anything that sets it apart from other eye creams I’ve tried.  That’s okay though!  All eye creams seem roughly equivalent to me.

Product packaging is really important to me, and this product delivers!  The little box and the purple container are so cute!  I love it!

IMG_4332Meri Meri – Toot Sweet Pink Stripe Napkins – Retail Value $5.95

I don’t have a use for these napkins right now, but I’m sure I’ll use them at some point!  They’re too cute to let go to waste!  I’m going to save them for a special occasion!

IMG_4335Southern Culture – Shortstacks Pancake & Waffle Mix – Retail Value $7.99

This pancake mix is soooooo cute! I can’t get over the adorableness!!

These are birthday cake flavored!  I’m sure they’ll be super delicious!  I don’t want to open them yet though.

I don’t want to waste them on just myself.  I’ll have to invite some friends over and have a pancake and waffle party!

IMG_4319Happy Jackson – Yay Lunch! Lunch Box – Retail Value $10

When I saw this in my box, I wasn’t expecting to like it as much as I do!  It’s super cute and super handy!  I love it!!

IMG_4323It’s so easy to put your sandwich and a few snacks in this box and then throw it in your bag.

It’s great for when you don’t want to bring your entire lunchbox with you!

I’ve been using it for the last few days and have gotten quite a few compliments! 🙂

IMG_4341Pastel – Best Day Ever Mug – Retail Value $12

I’ve recently started drinking coffee, so this mug is perfect!

It’s simple and cute!  No complaints from me!

IMG_4350MyYogaWorks – 3-Month Trial – Retail Value $45

This card is good for a 3-month trial on myyogaworks.com.  The website features over 700 online classes.

This is really great for people who enjoy online workout classes.  I probably won’t end up using this though.  I’m rather forgetful and am not that big on exercise. 🙁

IMG_4330Folgers Iced Café – Caramel Macchiato Flavored Coffee Drink Concentrate – Retail Value $4.99

This product really makes iced coffee easy!  All you do is add a few squirts to a glass of milk, and you’re done!

I think it tastes pretty good, but I would prefer regular iced coffee.  I will definitely be using this when I don’t have time to brew coffee though!

IMG_4295The August box has a total retail value (not including the yoga trial) of $155.93!  That’s awesome!

I’ve already gotten quite a bit of use out of some of these products, and I know I’ll get even more use out of the rest of them in the future!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review – July 2015

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly POPSUGAR Must Have subscription box review!

IMG_3493To receive fun boxes each month like I do, click here!

IMG_3496Box Contents:

  • Henri Bendel – Signature Stripe Canvas Dopp Kit
  • Supergoop! – Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50
  • Sorial – Card Case
  • PopDental – Portable Toothbrush
  • Yes To – Blueberries Cleansing Facial Wipes
  • The Good Bean – Fruit & No-Nut Bar
  • Hallmark – Signature Greeting Cards

IMG_3517Henri Bendel – Signature Stripe Canvas Dopp Kit – Retail Value $28

I absolutely love this makeup bag!  It’s so cute and super functional!

IMG_3520I love that it opens and stays open.  So handy!

It’s also a great size.  Not too big and not too small!

I also love coupons! 🙂

IMG_3503Supergoop! – Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50 – Retail Value $28

I received a travel size of this same setting mist in my Allure Beauty Box this month.  I love the spray, so I’m completely okay with the double!  I especially don’t mind that this is the full size!

I just ran out of setting spray, so this mist couldn’t have come at a better time!  The mist is really fine and smells great!

I especially love that this setting mist has SPF in it!  That’s great for my fair skin!

IMG_3512Sorial – Card Case – Retail Value $28

This card case is so cute!  It’ll be perfect to slip into all my small handbags!  I currently wrap my ID and debit card in a hair tie when I go out.  This card case will allow me to eliminate that semi-ghetto practice! 🙂

Another coupon! YAY!!

IMG_3505PopDental – Portable Toothbrush – Retail Value $19.99

This toothbrush is so cute! It’ll be perfect for traveling!  I typically leave my electric toothbrush at home when I go on trips and travel with a manual.  Now I won’t have to!

IMG_3513Yes To – Blueberries Cleansing Facial Wipes – Retail Value $5.99

I’ve tried lots of facial wipes in the last few years. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find any that don’t irritate my face.  These ones are no different.  After using them, by face burned a little. 🙁

The packaging is so cute and the scent is so familiar.  I can’t quite place it though!

I’m going to see if any of my friends can use these.

IMG_3509The Good Bean – Fruit & No-Nut Bar – Chocolate Berry – Retail Value $1.99

I was crazy hungry when I got my box from the mail, so right after I took a picture, I devoured this bar!

I think I would’ve preferred the bar if there would’ve been some nuts or something in it.  The bar just tasted too much like cardboard. 🙁

IMG_3524Special Extra – Hallmark – Signature Greeting Cards – Retail Value $4.99, $4.99, and $5.99

You can never have to many greeting cards!  These were a great addition to the box!

IMG_3528Each box came with a different assortment of cards.

I got a wedding card, a birthday card, and a blank card.

My brother is getting married soon, so perhaps he and his wife will get the wedding card! 😉

IMG_3501Aside from the facial wipes and the fruit bar, I’m very pleased with this month’s box!

The total retail value is $127.94!  That’s not too shabby!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review – June 2015

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly POPSUGAR Must Have review! IMG_0672To receive fun goodies each month like I do, click here!! IMG_2421I didn’t have enough self-control to avoid the spoilers for this box! Whoopsie! 🙂 IMG_2522Each box comes with a card full of details on each product. IMG_2422Box Contents:

  • Spongellé – Boxed Flowers – Fleur en Boîte
  • Yogitoes – Peacock hBand
  • Pacifica – Enlighten Eye Brightening Shadow Palette
  • Quay Australia – Mandate Sunglasses
  • Judy Blume’s In the Unlikely Event
  • SNAP Infusion – SUPERCANDY
  • Sweet & Spark – $30 Gift Card

IMG_2494Spongellé – Boxed Flowers – Fleur en Boîte – Retail Value $16

I absolutely LOVE this body wash infused sponge!  It smells amazing and the flower shape is adorable!

The sponge is a little rough, which makes it perfect for exfoliating!

I have a feeling that I will continue to use the sponge even after all the soap washes out! IMG_2502Yogitoes – Peacock hBand – Retail Value $4

I think this headband is adorable! I never wear exercise headbands though, so I was a little self-conscious when I wore it to the gym.  My friend, Lindsey, said I looked cute, but I’m still on the fence!

I’ll have to give it another try and see if I like it better the second time! IMG_2510Pacifica – Enlighten Eye Brightening Shadow Palette – Retail Value $14

I love eyeshadow palettes, but unfortunately, only one of these shadow colors works for me.

I like the shadow on the far left, but the others are just too dark or oddly colored for my skin tone.

I’ll have to see if these shadows work for any of my friends! IMG_2505Quay Australia – Mandate Sunglasses – Retail Value $45

Like most girls, I can always use another spare pair of sunglasses!

I was surprised with how lightweight these are, and I love that they came with their own protective case. IMG_2516Judy Blume’s In the Unlikely Event – Retail Value $27.95

I’ve read the plot summary several times, and this sounds like a good beach read (or just a laying on the couch read!)

I’ve been reading on a Kindle for almost five years now, so I have a feeling my hand will cramp when I start reading this book!  So pathetic, but it will! IMG_2497SNAP Infusion – SUPERCANDY – Retail Value $4 

I already ate the green, sour pack, and the candies were very yummy!

I really like the idea of a “healthy” candy! IMG_2487Sweet & Spark – $30 Gift Card

I don’t typically like it when my subscription boxes come with gift cards, but this gift card is the exception!

Sweet & Spark is online site that sales curated vintage jewelry.  How cool is that?!

I’ve found several pieces that I like, so I need to hurry up and purchase one before they sell out.  There’s only one of each item, so it’s very possible that they could sell out of everything I like if I don’t act quickly! IMG_2431Aside from the funky eyeshadow colors, I’d say that June was a hit!

The total retail value of this box is $140.95!  That’s a great value!

I can’t wait to see what July has to offer!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review – May 2015

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly POPSUGAR review!

IMG_0672If you’d like to receive fun goodies each month like me, click here!

IMG_0676Just like last month, I avoided all the spoilers, so this month would be a complete surprise!

IMG_0707Each box comes with a little handout with details on each product.

IMG_0710Box Contents:

  • Sister of Los Angeles – Surf Sand Love Beach Towel
  • Middle Kingdom – Mini Plum Vase – Coral Red
  • Kitsch – Tri’d & True Y-Shaped Necklace
  • Sage & Row – Bare Shave Cream
  • Batiste – Dry Shampoo
  • Hammond’s Candies – McCraw’s Flat Taffy

may-2015-sand-surf

Sister of Los Angeles – Surf Sand Love Beach Towel – Retail Value $ 40

I apologize for how bad this picture is.  I was having trouble getting a decent picture of my towel.

I like how bright and summery this towel is!  It’s perfect for summer!

I will say that I’m not a surfer, so I would feel like a bit of a poser using this at the beach!

IMG_0701Middle Kingdom – Mini Plum Vase – Coral Red – Retail Value $20

I love this vase!  The size and shape make it super adorable!

Unfortunately, the coral red color doesn’t match my current decor. 🙁

IMG_0686Kitsch – Tri’d & True Y-Shaped Necklace – Retail Value $32

I love how dainty this necklace is!

The style is fun and like nothing I’ve owned before.  I’m not quite sure what tops I will wear this with, but I’ll hopefully decide on something soon!

IMG_0689Sage & Row – Bare Shave Cream – Retail Value $17

I was so excited when I saw this fancy shave cream in my box!  It smells really good, and I couldn’t wait to give it a try.

Unfortunately, the excitement stopped there.  I wasn’t satisfied with the way this cream lathers.  I know shave cream doesn’t actually lather, but I use EOS shaving cream all the time and for $4 it’s much thicker and does a better job than this $17 cream.

IMG_0695Batiste – Dry Shampoo – Cherry – Retail Value $4

Dry shampoos are very popular in subscription boxes.  I think these companies believe that we never wash our hair or something! 😉

The packaging of this product is adorable, and I can’t wait to give it a try!

IMG_0690Hammond’s Candies – McCraw’s Flat Taffy – Retail Value $1

I love the look of this taffy!  The bright colors make it so fun!

I haven’t had a chance to eat it yet, but I’m sure it’s going to be super yummy!

IMG_0680The total retail value for May is $114. That’s not too bad!

I’m pretty pleased with May, but I can’t wait to see what June has to offer!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review – April 2015

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly POPSUGAR Must Have review!

IMG_9791To receive POPSUGAR Must Have each month like I do, click here!

IMG_9739I’m so proud of myself! This month I refrained from looking at any spoilers before my box arrived!

The mystery was so much fun!

IMG_9751Each box comes with a little card detailing each item featured in the box.

IMG_9754Box Contents:

  • Dabney Lee – Dottie Umbrella
  • One Love Organics – Gardenia + Tea Antioxidant Body Serum
  • Produce Candles – Rhubarb Spring Candle
  • Flip & Tumble – 24-7 Bag
  • Potting Shed Creations – Garden-in-a-Bag Basil
  • Mott 50 – $25 Gift Card

IMG_9781Dabney Lee – Dottie Umbrella – Retail Value $20

I absolutely love this umbrella! The patten is adorable!

The polka dots are so much fun, and navy and pink are my favorite colors!

IMG_9787This umbrella is really well made!

I’ve used it once already, and since I live in Florida, I’m sure I’ll be using it again really soon!

IMG_9828One Love Organics – Gardenia + Tea Antioxidant Body Serum – Retail Value $39

I was expecting this serum to be a gel instead of the thin oil that it is.

It wasn’t what I was expecting, but I really do like it!  I’ve used it twice now, and it’s great!

So far, I like it best when applied right after shaving my legs!  My legs are so smooth afterwards!  So awesome!

It smells good too!

IMG_9814Produce Candles – Rhubarb Spring Candle – Retail Value $20

I LOVE this candle!  The packaging is adorable, and it smells fantastic!

IMG_9818The back of the candle has lots of good facts about rhubarb.  Very interesting!

I also got a coupon code for 35% off! What a deal!!

IMG_9773Flip & Tumble – 24-7 Bag – Retail Value $12

I love reusable bags.  I prefer mine to be structured though.

IMG_9801The bag is a decent size.  It’s also nifty that it fits in that tiny, little stretchy pouch.

IMG_9802I like the padded strap!  Such a great feature!

I also got a coupon for 20% off!  I don’t think I’ll use it, but it’s nice to have!

IMG_9821Potting Shed Creations – Garden-in-a-Bag Basil – Retail Value $10

I love this! It’s so cute and fun!

On the back of the bag, there’s lots of information about basil and how to grow this Garden-in-a-Bag.

When I get enough room on my counter top, I’m going to start growing basil!

IMG_9767Special Extra – Mott 50 – $25 Gift Card

I’ve been looking on the Mott 50 website to see if there is anything I’d like to buy.  I found some cute cardigans, but they’re kind of expensive even with the gift card.  I’ll have to see if my mom or any of my friends want to use it!

IMG_9744I really love the April box!  It’s so springy and fun!

Not including the gift card (that I probably won’t use) the total retail value is $101.

That’s the lowest retail value I’ve seen since subscribing in January, but I’m okay with it.  Most of this month’s products are awesome!

Now, I can’t wait for the May box to come out!

What do you think of the April POPSUGAR Must Have box?!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review – March 2015

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly POPSUGAR Must Have review! IMG_8912To receive fun boxes likes this each month, click here! IMG_8916The inspiration for the March box was renewal, citrus, spring break, fresh, and traveling. IMG_8917This card gives details on every item included in the box.

Box contents:

  • Bliss – Micromagic Microdermabrasion Treatment
  • Greenmarket Purveying Co. – The Archivist Lemon + Cucumber Reed Diffuser Kit
  • Samdura – Pink Piña Zip Pouch
  • Knock Knock – What to Pack Pad
  • Wet Brush – The Squirt
  • Halfpops – Halfpopped Popcorn

Special Extras:

  • Benefit Cosmetics – Roller Lash Mascara
  • Benefit Cosmetics – The POREfessional

IMG_8938Bliss – Micromagic Microdermabrasion Treatment – Retail Value $48

At first, I was a little skeptical of this product.  I looked at a lot of reviews online and the majority of them were very positive.  The negative reviews kind of worried me though.  I eventually sucked it up and gave the scrub a try.

I’m happy to report that it’s FANTASTIC! My face was so incredibly smooth when I got out of the shower after using it!

The directions say to only use it twice a week, so (as weird as this is) I’m pumped for when I get to use it again! IMG_8946Greenmarket Purveying Co. – The Archivist Lemon + Cucumber Reed Diffuser Kit – Retail Value $20

I’ve never use a reed diffuser before, but I’ve always thought they were pretty cool.  I decided to put this one in my bathroom.

I love the lemon and cucumber smell!  It’s very fresh and perfect for spring! IMG_8942Samdura – Pink Piña Zip Pouch – Retail Value $40

I like the size and color of this pouch!  It’s perfect for storing sunscreen and other larger items that have the potential to spill.

The POPSUGAR retail value is $40.  The pouch is nice but I would never pay that much for it.  It’s just plastic with a zipper not too impressive. IMG_8935 Knock Knock – What to Pack Pad – Retail Value $7

I love this notepad!  I always makes lists when I travel to make sure I don’t forget anything, so this is perfect for me!

I love the fact that there are blank spaces under each category. Those are perfect for adding my own items! IMG_8929Wet Brush – The Squirt – Retail Value $4.99

I was always told to never brush my hair when it’s wet, but because I received this brush in my box, I decided to give it a try.

Unfortunately, the brush didn’t work for me. I know that sounds odd, but it’s true.  The bristles wouldn’t latch on to my hair and brush though it. They just glided over top without actually brushing my hair.

My best friend, Kylie, has a Wet Brush and loves it.  I don’t know why it didn’t work for me though.  Weird! IMG_8934Halfpops – Halfpopped Popcorn – Retail Value $1.69

I’ve never had halfpopped popcorn before.

The flavor was good but the snack itself was odd. I don’t know how to describe it other than weird. I didn’t hate it, but I also didn’t love it.

This is one of those things that you just have to try for yourself! IMG_8926Special Extra – Benefit Cosmetics Samples

I love Benefit, so I couldn’t have been happier to receive these in my box!

Roller Lash Mascara

I first tried the new Roller Lash Mascara in my March Sample Society box, and I love it!

It works really well and doesn’t clump!

I definitely do not mind the repeat!

The POREfessional

POREfessional is a fantastic face primer that reduces the look of pores and smooths the skin.

I use it everyday and love it!

I’m always happy to have a travel size for whenever I go on trips! IMG_8920The March POPSUGAR Must Have box has a total retail value of $121.68!  That’s fantastic!

Out of the three months I’ve had POPSUGAR, this has been my least favorite month.  Oh well!

As with all subscription boxes, you’re going to like some months better than others!

IMG_8094Tarte Cosmetics – Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush – True Love – Retail Value $26

I was SO excited when I saw that I would be receiving a Tarte blush is my February box!

Tarte is a fantastic brand, and this blush is great!

True Love is a very pretty reddish pink! I have to be careful with it though!  I’m used to a little bit lighter blushes, so I have to make sure I don’t apply too much!  I don’t want to walk out of the house looking like a clown! IMG_8134U.S. Apothecary – Rose Water Bubble Bath – Retail Value $30

This bubble bath is so luxurious and fancy! It smells pretty good too!

I don’t take bubble baths very often, so I’ll be saving this for a special occasion! IMG_8130ACME Party Box Company – Bamboo Heart Cutting Board & Cheese Knife – Retail Value $32

This is the cutest cutting board and cheese knife I’ve ever seen!

I don’t have much use for this right now, so I think I’ll save it and gift it to a friend in the future! IMG_8100BaubleBar – Mini Arrow Pendant Necklace – Silver – Retail Value $32

I’ve never bought anything from BaubleBar before, but I’ve heard great things about the company!

This necklace is perfectly dainty!

I read a few spoilers before I got my box, and saw that the necklace was being given out in several different metals.  At the time, I couldn’t decide which one I wanted.  I’m happy to say that the silver was a perfect choice for me!

I haven’t worn it yet.  I’m waiting to pair it with the perfect outfit! IMG_8137I was really excited to see that the necklace came with a coupon code!

I can’t wait to go online and see what else BaubleBar has to offer! IMG_8126Figs & Rouge – 100% Natural Balm – Lemon Berry – Retail Value $8

This is another item that varied from box to box.  Based on the reviews I’ve read, there are at least 2 different flavors.

I love lip balm, but I not a huge fan of the types that you have to stick your fingers in.

The balm says it’s tinted, but I didn’t notice any color when it was applied to my lips.

A few positives for the lip balm are that the smell is nice and light and the packing is super adorable!  I’m a sucker for good packaging! IMG_8117Chuao Chocolatier – Ravishing Rocky Road Bar – Retail Value $6

This chocolate bar is very yummy!  I’m eating it as I’m writing this post!

The marshmallows and salted caramel almonds are a great touch! IMG_8121SPECIAL EXTRA – Sally Beauty – FingerPaints Nail Color – Brushstroke Blush – Retail Value $5.50

This nail polish was added to every February box as a special bonus!  Very exciting!!

The polish I received is a pretty baby pink color!  Very fitting for the spring! It also came with a BOGO coupon!  Who doesn’t love BOGO?! IMG_8081I am very pleased with my February POPSUGAR Must Have box!

I payed ~$27 for this box and received $139.50 worth of product!

That is so awesome!
