POPSUGAR Must Have Review: July 2017

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

Hello!

It’s POPSUGAR Must Have review time!  I’ve been stalking the mailbox for days, and my box has finally arrived!

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

The July box has a fun, summer theme just like the June box. You could take this entire box down to the beach with you!

Box contents:

  • Ocean Tribe by Turkish T – Kilim Towel
  • BAN.DŌ – Sip Sip Tumbler
  • SUPERGOOP! – Super Power Sunscreen Mousse SPF 50
  • Tarte Cosmetics – Lights, Camera, Splashes Waterproof Mascara
  • Sister of Los Angeles – California Fireplace Matches
  • Snyder’s of Hanover – Wholey Cheese! Smoked Gouda

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

Ocean Tribe by Turkish T – Kilim Towel – Retail Value $49

This towel is adorable! The fabric is super soft and the design is great.  That fringe really makes it though!

POPSUGAR suggests you use the towel for picnics or at a concert.  It’s big enough for me to do those things but probably not big enough for me to do them with friends!

BAN.DŌ – Sip Sip Tumbler – Retail Value $14

I’ve admired BAN.DŌ products from afar for a while now and am happy to finally own one! I use tumblers every signle day, so I’m pumped to add another one to my collection.  In fact, I’m drinking from this new one while I write this post!

Something about this design reminds me of Slurpees.  Anyone else? I don’t know if it’s the color or the font. It just screams Slurpee to me!

I love the road trip suggestion they give for this tumbler. That’s so fun! 🙂

SUPERGOOP! – Super Power Sunscreen Mousse SPF 50 – Retail Value $19

I’m a rather fair-skinned girl, so sunscreen is a must for me in the summertime. SPF 50 happens to be my SPF of choice so this is a win from all angles!

Every August, I go on a beach trip with my family, and this little guy will be coming with me this year!

I’ve never seen a mousse sunscreen before, so I’m very intrigued. I think the application process is going to be very fun. I’ll keep you posted!

Tarte Cosmetics – Lights, Camera, Splashes Waterproof Mascara – Retail Value $23

Yippee for another Tarte product! I think this is the third Tarte item I’ve received since subscribing to POPSUGAR over two years ago.  🙂

This mascara comes in both a waterproof and a regular version. I used the regular version years ago and loved it! So far, I’m loving the waterproof version too!

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

Sister of Los Angeles – California Fireplace Matches – Retail Value $10

POPSUGAR thinks that these matches would be great for a bonfire and s’mores, and I have to agree. I’m a HUGE fan of s’mores!

I don’t light too many fires though, so it’ll probably be a good while before I strike up one of these. I will definitely use them at some point but probably just for lighting candles! 🙂

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

Snyder’s of Hanover – Wholey Cheese! Smoked Gouda – Retail Value $3.69

As you know, I’m all about the POPSUGAR snacks! I espcially love it when the package size is large! This month’s snack didn’t disappoint either.

These little guys are like fancier Cheez-its.  YUM!

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

The retail value of the July box is $118.69.  That’s pretty low for POPSUGAR but is still great since the purchse price of this box is only $40.

I will use every single item from this month’s box.  I can’t remember the last time I said that!

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!

Allure Beauty Box Review – July 2015

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly Allure review!

IMG_3459You might have noticed that the Allure box changed it’s name.  What used to be Sample Society is now Beauty Box. The Allure subscription box used to be fulfilled by beautybar.com, but now Allure has taken over the fulfillment process and changed a few things.

IMG_3464The mini magazine is still the same.  It features every product included in the box and information about why they picked that specific product.

IMG_3467Box Contents:

  • Bumble and Bumble – Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Heat/UV Protective Primer
  • Oscar Blandi – Pronto Invisible Volumizing Dry Shampoo Spray
  • Supergoop – Defense Refresh Setting Mist Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 50
  • Estée Lauder – Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Synchronized Complex II
  • Estée Lauder – Sumptuous Infinite Daring Length + Volume Mascara
  • Invisibobble – The Traceless Hair Ring

IMG_3475Bumble and Bumble – Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Heat/UV Protective Primer

I’ve heard great things about Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil, so I was super excited when I saw this primer in my box!  I was pretty impressed with the size of this sample!  All of the other Bumble and Bumble samples I’ve received in the past have been the size of those puny perfume samples that people always get for free.

I’ve used the primer several times now, and I like it.  It smells great!

IMG_3472Oscar Blandi – Pronto Invisible Volumizing Dry Shampoo Spray

I’m a big fan of washing my hair, so I never end up using the dry shampoo samples I get in my subscription boxes.  I’ll have to see if one of my friends wants this.

Once again, I’m impressed with the size of this sample!  So nice and big!

IMG_3476Supergoop – Defense Refresh Setting Mist Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 50

I can’t tell you how excited I was when I saw this setting spray in my box!  I just ran out of the setting spray I usually use, so this couldn’t have come at a better time!

I love how fine this mist is and the fact that it includes SPF!  So handy!!

IMG_3486Estée Lauder – Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Synchronized Complex II

I’m pretty loyal to my nightly serum, except when I travel!  My nightly serum can be a little bulky to pack, so lately I’ve been traveling with random samples I’ve acquired.  This one will be added to the mix!

I have been testing it out for the last few nights, and I do like the formula!  It’s light and hasn’t made me break out or anything!  That’s always a plus!!

IMG_3478Estée Lauder – Sumptuous Infinite Daring Length + Volume Mascara

I loving trying out different mascara samples!  I’m always on the hunt for the best one!  Unfortunately, this one isn’t it.

I find this mascara to be a little to wet.  After application, quite a bit of mascara transferred onto my eyelid/brow bone area.  Super annoying!

IMG_3485Invisibobble – The Traceless Hair Ring

I’m not going to lie, I was pretty weirded out by this product when I first saw it!  These hair ties look just like the dorky key chains my elementary/middle school gym teachers used to have!

After I got over my initial skepticism, I gave the hair ties a try and really liked them!  They have incredible hold, and leave barely any kink in my hair after being removed!  What a deal!

IMG_3552I’m loving this first month of the Beauty Box!  I hope each month continues to be this good or better!
