PopSugar Must Have: June 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. Typically, PopSugar includes a little folded card that describes all of the products and gives a little blurb of information about each product in the box. This month, my info card was missing from my box! :( I was disappointed by this because I love being able to read about the products and what brands they are from. Since I was missing the info card, I wasn’t even sure if I had received all of the products, but after some online research, I was able to account for everything in my PopSugar box. 


Hat Attack: Neutral Diamonds-Printed Sarong - Retail $58

PopSugar gave a little preview of this item before this month’s box was shipped out and while I was (and still am) very excited about this item, I literally have zero clue how I’m supposed to tie it. I’ve googled “how to tie a sarong” and watched multiple videos but my sarong skills are still total crap. Anyone have any tips on how to tie a sarong? Otherwise, I’ve pretty much accepted the fact that this is just going to have to serve as a scarf instead. 


Pacifica: Underarm Deodorant Wipes - Retail $9

I’m actually weirdly excited about this product! I recently joined a gym and *plan* on going regularly after work so I think these will be perfect for throwing into my workout bag! 


Sisters of Los Angeles:“Cheers” Gold Bottle Opener - Retail $12

While I don’t drink often, so I won’t have much use for this bottle opener - I can’t deny the fact that it’s the cutest bottle opener I’ve ever seen! I’ll probably be tossing some of my crappier bottle openers to make room for this one. 


Wild and Wolf Ridley’s Games Room: “Who Am I?” Quiz - Retail $12.95

I really, really, really wanted to love this game because I love to play board/card games but unfortunately, this game didn’t turn out to be what I’d hoped. It’s played similar to how trivial pursuit is played, but the clues on each card are extremely obscure and hard to guess. Maybe this game would be better for people who know more random trivia than I do, but I think for the average person, the clues are a little bit too difficult for it to be much fun.


NCLA: Born on the 4th Nail Lacquer ($16)

This adorable nail polish came just in time for the holiday weekend and I cannot wait to sport it on the 4th of July! Since the polish is mostly just sparkles and clear nail polish, I think I’ll throw on a coat of white nail polish underneath it so that the colored sparkles look better. 


Knock Knock: Are You Ready (For Your Close-Up?) Compact ($10)

One thing I do love about all subscription boxes is that they kind of have a knack for throwing in things that I’ve been meaning to get before I even have a chance to get them! I’ve been meaning to get another compact mirror for my work purse and this one has both a magnified mirror and a normal mirror in it - which I love!

Pressels: Sriracha ($1.29) 

Weirdly enough, I think this was my favorite item out of the entire box! Usually, I’m not a big fan of the food items I receive in boxes, but I absolutely loved these Pressels. I also don’t usually like spicy things, so I was pleasantly surprised by these Sriracha Pressels. While I don’t think I’ll be going out to buy them anytime soon, if I happen to whiz by them at my grocery store I may throw a bag into my cart ;)

I have to say, I was a little disappointed with this month’s box! Looking over some of my past PopSugar box reviews, this box has definitely seen better days. There were months where I loved almost every single thing in the box and was so excited about every product. This month, everything is nice, but there’s nothing I’m super excited to have received. Plus, I didn’t feel that the value of the box was as high as it has been in the past. I know every subscription box can’t be perfect but PopSugar has been my unicorn of a box for so many months - I’m hoping this isn’t an indication that things will start to go downhill! :( Maybe I’ve just gotten pickier over time? I don’t know! What were your thoughts on this month’s PopSugar? Leave me a note in the comments! I’d love to hear your thoughts!
