POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2019 Review

A new season is here, so you know what that means — it’s time for my POPSUGAR Must Have summer 2019 review! As usual, POPSUGAR did not disappoint with a box full of summery goodness! From sunscreen and beach hats to beauty products and candy, let’s dive in!

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2019

Box contents:

  • Seafolly – Bronte Sunglasses in Blush
  • Tofino – The Mathea Towel
  • Julep – Creme-to-Powder Eyeshadow Stick in Champagne Shimmer
  • Brooklyn Hat Co. – Palm Fiber Safari Hat
  • Tarte – Rainforest of the Sea Mermaid Skin Hyaluronic H2O Serum
  • Hint – Sunscreen and Sunstick
  • Candy Club – Lemonade Straws
  • Nair – Leg Mask

Seafolly – Bronte Sunglasses in Blush – Retail Value $99

Summer isn’t complete without a fun, new pair of sunnies! Subscribers were given the option of blush or blue for these sunglasses. I went with blush and am very happy with my choice!

This style is quirky and so different from the classic aviators I usually wear. However, I love them! I wore them on the 4th of July this year and received a ton of compliments. I’ll definitely be taking these cuties on my annual summer beach trip coming up next month.

Tofino – The Mathea Towel – Retail Value $64.99

This is another item that POPSUGAR let subscribers choose the pattern of this month. I chose polka dots (my favorite) over the tribal print option.

The tassels on this beach towel are what sets it apart! How cute is that detail?! I’ll definitely be packing this towel for my annual beach trip as well!

Julep – Creme-to-Powder Eyeshadow Stick in Champagne Shimmer – Retail Value $18

If you’re a longtime reader, then you know that Julep was my first foray into subscription boxes. I subscribed for years and loved each product I received, including their eye shadow sticks. I received this eye shadow stick and a few others several years back and loved them then just like I do now.

Champagne shimmer shadows are my everyday go-to, so I’ve been getting tons of use out of this eye shadow stick over the last few weeks and will continue to do so until it’s all gone!

Brooklyn Hat Co. – Palm Fiber Safari Hat – Retail Value $55

I’m not usually a hat wearer but this hat has tempted me! I’ll be packing it for my annual beach vacation as well, so we’ll have to see how it like it after taking it for a spin on and around the beach!

If all else fails, it makes for very cute wall decor! Don’t you think?

Tarte – Rainforest of the Sea Mermaid Skin Hyaluronic H2O Serum – Retail Value $42

Another thing you’ll know if you’ve been reading for a while is that I love Tarte products! I use quite a few in my everyday beauty routine and have tried tons more over the years after receiving them in various subscription boxes.

I’ve been using this serum several times a week for the last few weeks and have not noticed a difference in my skin. My skin has not been breaking out (which is fantastic!), so I will continue to use the serum for a bit longer to see if I notice a difference.

Hint – Sunscreen and Sunstick – Retail Value $17.99 and $9.99

A summer subscription box isn’t complete without sunscreen! I’m not complaining though. This fair-skinned girl appreciates any and all sunscreen that she can get her hands on!

Hint’s pineapple scented sunscreen did not disappoint! It smells INCREDIBLE and works well too! Along with pineapple, their line also has a grapefruit scent, which intrigues me quite a bit. I hate eating grapefruit, but I love them smell!

Along with a lot of the other products above, I’ll be taking this sunscreen on my upcoming beach trip as well!

Candy Club – Lemonade Straws – Retail Value $8.50

Lemonade candy? YUM! I love sour straws, so I was extremely excited when I found these in my box. I finished the container a little bit before writing this post, which is a little sad, so I may just have to look into a candy subscription with Candy Club. How fun would that be?!

Nair – Leg Mask – Special Extra

It’s been years since I’ve used Nair instead of shaving my legs. I gave this product a try on my calves the other night and was pleasantly surprised by the outcome. After ten minutes, my calves were mostly hair free.

This leg mask works well, but I used almost the whole bottle just on my calves. I’m not sure how much larger the full-size version is, but I imagine I wouldn’t be able to get more than two or three full uses out of it.

For convenience sake, I think I’ll stick to shaving. After all, it only takes a few minutes to shave my legs as opposed to 10 minutes waiting for Nair to work.


POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2019

This season’s box had a total retail value of over $315, which is over 3x what I paid for it! What a deal!

My favorite items are the sunglasses, beach towel, and the candy!

I can’t wait to see what next season’s box holds!

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!

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

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

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

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! 🙂

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!

Do you subscribe to POPSUGAR Must Have?!

What do you think of the July box?
