PopSugar Must Have Box August 2013

popsugaraugust

PopSugar Must-have box is definitely one of my favorite subscriptions. Every month they send me a box filled will full size  products and deluxe samples that is usually over $100 worth of a variety of beauty, fashion, snacks, home, reading, and more. It’s $35 a month- but you can get your first box for $30 using the code Refer5 at https://musthave.popsugar.com/

Here’s what was in this month’s Popsugar box:

necklace

Gorjana open circle necklace // retail value $65
This is the 1 year anniversary gift that was included in the box! It’s cute and has a great length!

“This simple, yet sophisticated piece is perfect for everyday wear. We’d style this with a cute day dress for a weekend with friends or everyday workwear.” – PopSugar

stack

bentgo

Bentgo All-in-one Stackable Lunch Box // retail value $19.99
I’ve been wanting to buy this for a while! So happy they included this in the August box! It’s stackable and the utensils are in the box, how cute is this?!

“Even if you’re not kicking odd a new school year, there’s no time like the present to try out a new lunch routine. This Bentgo meal-storage container can keep your lunch well-organized and offers a great, eco-friendly way to eat healthy every day.” – PopSugar

ddaily

May designs weekly agenda notebook // retail value $17

I absolutely love this! I would rather have an agenda that I can write in verses an electronic agenda. I love how bright and happy this notebook is! They included a promo code to get either $5, $50, or $500- mine was worth $5.

“There’s only so much electronic calendars can do, and we’re still lost without our good old-fashioned weekly agenda stashed away in our bag everywhere we go.” – PopSugar

lulah

Lulah body wash // retail value $11.25
I’ve never heard of this brand, but I love trying new things! Popsugar included a 20% off promo code for a Lulah purchase at http://www.lulah.com. It also looks adorable in my shower! It smells so good!

What’s not to love about this Lulah body wash? It smells amazing, creates a luxurious lather to keep your skin clean and fresh, and is all wrapped up in cute packaging to brighten up your shower.” – PopSugar

apple

Lunares apple bowl // retail value $20?
How cute is this?! I love apples, and this is going to be a great to hold some of my jewelry! It can also be used as a snack bowl too, but I think it’s simply too beautiful to be used for food.

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away! This apple bowl may not be keeping you healthy, but it’s a great decorative addition to any desk, entryway table, or tablescape.” – Popsugar

grannyapples

Naturebox Granny Smith Apples // retail value $4

I love healthy snacks like this, but I didn’t love these. The texture was horrible, maybe it was just me? The eco-friendly bag was a nice touch, but some of the paper from the bag ended up on the apples . Popsugar teamed up with NatureBox and included a promo code for a 50% off promo code for my first NatureBox if I wanted to try it.

“We teamed up with these amazing monthly subscription NatureBox to bring you this healthy snack of apple rings. With no added sugars, these are perfect to enjoy when you need a quick treat in the middle of the day or when you’re on the go.” -PopSugar

preclean

Dermalogica PreCleanse and Special Cleansing Gel // retail value $15?
I haven’t tried this brand, but I’m always excited to try new things! If I like it, PopSugar included a 20% off promo code for me! skincare is so important to me and I love trying out

“Meet the two-step process that will change your skin regimen. First up is Dermalogica’s PreCleanse, which is an oil-based, water-soluble cleanser that rids skin of oil-based debris and pollutants. It’s formulated with plant oils. So it won’t clog your pores and will leave your skin ready for the cleansing gel.” -PopSugar

Verdict// I loved this box so much! I think that Popsugar does a great job of picking things that I will actually use! This box was  valued over $100 and I think it’s worth the $35 per month!

XOXO,

FabFitFun VIP Summer Box

Fabfitfun

FabFitFun VIP Box is a new subscription box from Guiliana Rancic and FabFitFun. It’s a quarterly subscription box that is $49.99 every season. This is a review of the Summer Box. I’m just going to start off by saying that this review is WAY overdue. Apparently FabFitFun did not have my address in their system when they were shipping all of the boxes a couple weeks ago. I just got my box on Saturday July 27th, and was expecting it a few weeks ago. At least the customer service was really nice and emailed me to tell me what had happened.

Here’s what was in my FabFitFun VIP Box:
yes_to_cucumbers

Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes// Value $2.99
I have used these before and I love them! They’re really cool and refreshing!
orly

Orly Nail Polish // Value $8.50
I love getting nail polish in my subscription boxes! My collection is growing steadily but I didn’t have anything from Orly.kind
 Kind Bar Dark Chocolate Chili Almond // Value $1.50
 I enjoy getting Kind Bars in my subscription boxes! This is something that I will never get tired of getting! Obsessed! I’m not a dark chocolate fan- but this was simply amazing! 

Catalinasu

Catalina Su Lip Gloss // Value $14
 I have been getting a lot of lip gloss lately! Not complaining about this one bit though! I love this color and I think it’s flattering for any skin type. I love pink’s like this!
 surf_spray

It Hair Care Surf Spray// Value $7
I currently use “Not Your Mothers” beach spray, but I’m excited to try something new! This is something I will definitely use! Plus, it smells so good! 

infinitysun

Infinity Sun Glow on the Go Sunless Tanner (Travel Size) // Value $35
 I stopped going to the tanning salon because I realized my health is more important than my love of  being tan. I was kind of addicted.  After reading in Cosmopoitan that going to the tanning bed increases your risk for melanoma 2% every time you go, I immediately stopped going ! I didn’t look like I belonged on jersey shore- but I loved it. I’m glad that they included this in the box, I’m always on the search for the right sunless tanner!

evian

Evian Mineral Water Facial Spray //Value $12
I have always wanted to buy this but couldn’t justify spending $12 on water. This is supposed to be great for setting your makeup and refreshing your makeup throughout the day. Not something I would buy, but I am happy they put it in the box!

purlisse_milk_cleanser

 Purlisse Delicate Gentle Soy Milk Cleanser // Value $36
I’m interested in trying this Cleanser. I like that it’s natural and won’t strip your face of your natural oils.

ivory_and_mason
 Ivory + Mason Sunglasses // Value $135
Really didn’t like these glasses… Luckily, Ivory + Mason will let you exchange your glasses for $10 and let you pick out a pair you would actually wear. I’m tempted on doing that! These don’t fit my face very well and I really don’t think I’d wear them.

I paid $49.95 for this box and it had the value of over $250!!!
Verdict: I loved almost everything in the box! The only thing I could’ve done without was the sunglasses. I’m excited to see what the Fall FabFitFun VIP box has to offer! Fall is definitely my favorite season by far! I Can’t wait to see what the next FabFitBox’s theme will be!
