It’s that time of the month again…the arrival of my PopSugar box! I am seriously like a little kid on Christmas whenever my PopSugar box arrives - even though I’ve been subscribed to this box for over a year! I think that’s proof of how much I love this box. 😃 Despite the fact that I seem to have a love-hate relationship with every other subscription box out there, the PopSugar box never disappoints.
The PopSugar Must Have box is a monthly subscription ($40/month or less if you make a 3, 6, or year long commitment) that sends subscribers full-size versions of the season's must-have beauty, fashion, and home products.
Smashmallow: Cinnamon Churro (Retail $4) - Before trying these, I’d never heard of marshmallows as a snack and now? I’m dangerously obsessed. These little marshmallows are so cute, the churro flavor was amazing, and my belly pooch is pretty happy about it. 😃
Thrive Causemetics: Brilliant Eye Brightener in Stella (Retail $24) - This was one of the spoiler items revealed in an email and I was definitely excited for its arrival! I’ve said this many times, but there’s always at least one item per box that is already on my “need to get” list that PopSugar just magically gives me before I have a chance to get it myself! Although the product itself could have a little more pigmentation to it I really can’t complain. it goes on smoothly and even has its own sharpener. 😃
Sunnylife: Eco Lunch Box in Watermelon (Retail $18) - For me, this product was the highlight of the whole box! I absolutely love the cute watermelon design and have been using it to bring fruits and veggies along with me to work. As much as I wish my life was always about sunshine, flowers, and decorating my house - in reality, my life tends to be about work, managing the house, and trying to survive on coffee. That’s why little products like this have become so essential to my everyday life. If I’m going to bring food to work, why not derive a little bit of happiness out of the fact that my lunchbox is so freakin’ cute? I’m in love.
Stephanie Johnson: Camera Crossbody Bag (Retail $45) - I am so excited about this quirky little bag because I think it’ll be perfect for the summer! Although I’ve never owned a see-through bag before, it’s a trend I’m looking forward to testing. Plus, it’s the perfect size for an evening stroll or a mid-morning coffee break.
Kate Spade New York Photo Album (Retail $20) - Putting up pictures has definitely become a lost art in my household. My photos tend to live on my phone and never quite make it to the printed stage, so I’m hoping that this little album encourages me to print and put up more photos around the house!
Velvet Eyewear $25 Gift Card: This gift card was the only bust for me this month. It’s difficult to buy sunglasses online since you can’t try them on, plus, the sunglasses on this website run from $45 to $200+! As much as I’d love to invest in a good pair of sunglasses, it’s hard for me to justify spending that much money on a pair of sunglasses when A) I can’t physically try them on and B) I lose a pair of sunglasses at least once a month. The $25 gift card is not enough to purchase anything on the website so it kind of just feels like a ploy to get me to spend money 😔
Overall, I’m extremely happy with this month’s box. These are all products that I am already or fully plan on using in the future! I only wish that the weather would warm up more quickly so that I can use all of these spring themed products sooner! What were your thoughts on this month’s PopSugar? Leave me a comment - I’d love to hear from you!
