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 don’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. I’m a fan! 


Sachajuan: Hair in the Sun - Retail $12

It’s not entirely clear based on the card description what exactly this product is, but based on some online research it seems like it’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 I’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 I’m not exactly sure what I’m supposed to do with it! (This month’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 they’ve been used or do they get tossed? So many questions! Maybe I’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 don’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 wasn’t enough of an incentive for me to buy one of their pieces. 


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

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


While the retail value of this month’s box was still pretty high, I didn’t feel that the products included in this month’s box were truly of value to me. My reaction to most of the products this month was “what am I going to do with this?!” so I’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? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
