PopSugar Must Have: July 2016


The PopSugar Must Have box is a monthly subscription ($40/month or less if you make a 3 or 6 month long commitment) that sends subscribers full-size versions of the season's must-have beauty, fashion, home, and fitness products.


Sunnylife: Inflatable Swan Drink Holder - Retail $18

I love the idea of this inflatable drink holder but in reality I donโ€™t have a place or a reason to use this! I actually wish this was a full size inflatable swan instead of just a drink holder :P 


European Wax Center: Oh My Brow! Brow Highlighter in Pearl - Retail $19

Now this is a product I can get behind! This brow highlighter goes on extremely smoothly and has a nice subtle sparkle to it. Iโ€™m a fan! 


Sachajuan: Hair in the Sun - Retail $12

Itโ€™s not entirely clear based on the card description what exactly this product is, but based on some online research it seems like itโ€™s a hair styling/protection cream that helps to prevent damage from the sun to colored hair. Since I do not currently have any color in my hair Iโ€™ll likely be re-gifting or saving this until the next time I color my hair. 


Joe Chips: Classic Sea Salt Retro Potato Chips - Retail $1.49

Yum. I love any and all potato chips. Enough said :) 


House of Pom: Emoji Cocktail Napkins - Retail: $25

Another product where Iโ€™m not exactly sure what Iโ€™m supposed to do with it! (This monthโ€™s box seems to be chalk full of them!). According to the card, you are supposed to serve them with drinks, but do you wash them after theyโ€™ve been used or do they get tossed? So many questions! Maybe Iโ€™m just not sophisticated enough to appreciate a cocktail napkin! 


Pintail: Pineapple Pin - Retail $12

This pineapple pin is the cutest! I love the gold and its pretty detail, however, I wish it came as a necklace or bracelet instead since I donโ€™t have much use for a pin. 


Trove Gift Card - Retail $20

While Trove had some very beautiful jewelry on its website, most of it was on the pricier side ($60+ per piece) so unfortunately the $20 off gift card wasnโ€™t enough of an incentive for me to buy one of their pieces. 


Michael Stars: Porcelain Skinny Scarf in White - Retail $30

Iโ€™m not sure that the skinny scarf is a trend Iโ€™ll be adopting anytime soon, so Iโ€™ve decided to re-purpose it as a headband and Iโ€™m pretty happy with it as a headband instead! :) 


While the retail value of this monthโ€™s box was still pretty high, I didnโ€™t feel that the products included in this monthโ€™s box were truly of value to me. My reaction to most of the products this month was โ€œwhat am I going to do with this?!โ€ so Iโ€™m definitely hoping for a more practical box next month. What were your thoughts on your PopSugar box this month? Got any ideas for other subscription boxes I should try? Iโ€™d love to hear your thoughts!
