The Popsugar Must Have boxes are my favorites. The July 2015 box had me at the makeup bag and I literally paced the house until the mailman came today. Since his route got changed, I’m now last on his list and I hate it! This box is exceptional! I am so happy with everything in it.
I always love getting these boxes because it’s full of goodies I can use everyday or make really good gifts. Is it bad that I’m excited about a toothbrush? Because I’m about to run downstairs and use my new one.
The Cost: $39.99/month.
What You Get: Full size, premium products dealing with Home, Fashion, Fitness, Beauty and Food!
Henri Bendel Signature Stripe Dopp Kit– Fully expandable and featuring water-resistant coated lining, this striped canvas dopp kit stores your essentials with style.
I’ve been jealous of my husbands dopp kit from Bespoke Post and now I have my own! Yay! This kit opens up all the way and I love that. No digging down into a dark cavern because this opens wide and lets the light in. It holds A LOT, too. I actually put everything from the box inside of it. I couldn’t close it, obviously but all of it fit.
Sorial Card Case and $25 Gift Card– Sometimes I just like to take my drivers license and credit card without having to worry about a purse. I’ve been using a ratty card case from my husbands old wallet but it’s literally falling apart. So this bright red case is fun and will be used. The $25 gift card, on the other hand, probably not since there appears to be only eight things to buy. Weird.
Yes To Blueberries Cleansing Facial Wipes– Gently cleanse, remove makeup and moisturize all in one. These are also perfect for travel (and they fit into my Henri Bendel dopp kit) but I love cleansing wipes no matter where I am. Even better, I could take them with me to the beach along with my setting mist. Refresh my skin and refresh my SPF. Happy skin all day (as long as I have no makeup- which I probably wouldn’t wear to the beach anyway. Too hot.).
Supergoop! Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50– One of the biggest problems about SPF is that it needs to be reapplied pretty much every two hours. And who wants to ruin their makeup by slathering on more SPF? No one. So we just run around SPF-less. Not good. Supergoop, however, has the answer! It’s a mist that sets your make up, gives you a matte finish and has an SPF. The best part? You can spray it on all day long! Also, it smells really pepperminty which I love.
I do think if you spray too much, it’s going to pill or feel slightly greasy. It uses an avobenzone/homosalate/octinoxate/octisalate combination as sunscreen. I would be happier if it used titanium dioxide or zinc oxide, especially because it’s being sprayed on the face (hello, eyes).
PopDental Portable Toothbrush– I think Popsugar is telling me I need to take a trip. Cosmetic case, travel toothbrush, card carrier… I have a Sonicare but I never take it with my on my vacations. I just take a regular toothbrush. But this one is way more fun. Super easy to travel with and still buzzy like a Sonicare. That’s a win for me. (Also, I find it hilarious that these are sold at Nordstrom).
The Good Bean Fruit and No-Nut Bar in Chocolate Berry– I’m not sure why they even bother calling it a “fruit and no-nut” bar. Why not just call it what it is– a fruit bar. Pfft. Anyway, this bar is made with chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans) and this particular bar has cherries, cranberries and blueberries in it. Along with chocolate. And strangely, navy beans. So technically they should call it the Fruit and Bean bar. Soy and I don’t get along very well but I’m curious enough to try this.
Hallmark Signature Greeting Cards– If you can believe it, this is a special extra! I am dying with how much I love these cards. I want to frame them. Especially the square one that is like a painting! And the pineapple. The other card would probably be difficult so I’ll have to just use it. For something amazing. I don’t think I have any unmarried friends left…
VERDICT: Oh, Popsugar! I should make an ode to your awesomeness. I just love the kinds of items they include. I mean, I’ve never received a toothbrush in a subscription box before. Plus, the Hallmark cards are gorgeous. This box is worth over $100 and is actually worth that to me because I will use everything in it. I’ll even taste the Bean bar. I already went downstairs and put all my favorite things in my dopp kit. Even my Tarte After Dark palette fits in it! Woohoo!
If you would like to sign up for Popsugar, you can do that right here. You can still get this EXACT box!! Plus use coupon code REFER5 and you’ll get the box for only $34.95! Totes worth it, imo. You might get different cards, I think there’s two different sets that I’ve seen but everything else should be the same.
Right now, on the website it says you can get July. If it no longer says that (or it says July is sold out), you will start with the August box.
