My August PopSugar Must Have “Bag” finally arrived. I just don’t understand why my sh*t takes SO long to get to my house no matter where in the country it comes from. Moving on. I say “bag” because when I signed up it was the “Must Have Bag”, but was there a Pop Sugar bag this month? Umm, no. Just a box. If PopSugar would stop changing things up, I would be much happier. Anyways, on to the contents of the box:
~Govino Wine Glasses ($12.95): This is a set of 4 16 ounce shatterproof / reusable / recyclable wine glasses. But they don’t look like regular old cheapo plastic glasses. They are fancy plastic. That’s the best way I can describe them anyways. I am sure I will put these to good use on my new patio.
~Alora Ambiance Reed Diffuser ($90): Okay, this is something I would never purchase for myself. Or anyone else for that matter. $90 for a diffuser? I got the Isola scent and it’s way better than expected. Way better. I usually shy away from floral fragrances (this is gardenia, tuberose and fig), but this is pretty good. Maybe that’s why it’s $90??
~Baggu Bag ($9): I know these were included in some Citrus Lane boxes last month, but I never got one. This is a welcome addition because it will fit nicely in my diaper bag / handbag and I will have a bag whenever I need it. And pink and white polka dots? So cute. I just have to remember that it is there!
~PopPhysique Original Butt Fitness DVD ($10): The set of 3-dvd’s is $29.95 (on amazon), so I am estimating the cost of one dvd at $10. Will I use this? Hmm, probably not. Should I use this? H*ll yes. Maybe I will make B do this with me? He’d be game.
~Pretzel Crisps (Original Flavor) ($1.98): Since I am on vacation from clean eating, I’ll crack open a Diet Pepsi and have a few of these ;).
~Tatcha Beauty Papers ($12): I have bever used (or even heard of) these before, but I will for sure be trying them out. They are used to remove excess oil from the skin and if there is one thing that drives me crazy, it’s a greasy face.
~10 Postagrams ($10): I did receive these in last month’s Citrus Lane box and still haven’t used them. I need to get on the ball. I now have 20 postagrams to send! I still do love this idea.
~Bear Naked Granola Sample ($1): I am not even sure how to value this? We got some free when B ran the Warrior Dash. I wish they would have just went wild and included a full sized bag! B eats this every day, so it won’t go to waste.
~Sprout Cleanser ($6 est.): I understand that a lot of people LOVE this so I am going to give it a go. With all the face wash I get, you’d think I would be more motivated to wash my face. Yet it’s always the once task at night that gets skipped.
~Sprout Exfoliant ($7 est.): Once again, I need to use this stuff. I am going to leave this and the cleanser on my counter at night to remind myself. I have never ever even heard of this brand before PopSugar, so it’s totally new to me.
~15% Off Benziger Family Winery Coupon: This has zero value since you have to spend money to use it. They should have just sent wine. Everyone likes wine and I bet people wouldn’t complain about wine! For whatever reason, I feel like I have been here? I need to do some research and figure out if this was one of the wineries we visited on our Napa / Sonoma trip?
So that’s it, that’s the August BOX. I am annoyed there was no cute PopSugar tote bag (the Baggu bag doesn’t count), but what can you do? All totaled, the contents of the bag were valued (by me) at $159.93. Not too bad for $35. But would I have bought all this stuff on my own? Probably not. I mean a $90 diffuser has no place in my budget. And really, what a random assortment of items. The theme was home or entertaining or something this month, which I suppose they all fit under, but still. Random. I did enjoy it way more than the July box because it had a way better assortment of items. Way better! If you want to sign up for next month go here (so I can get more months free). But be sure to GTS(*) because I know they had some codes for August and maybe they will for September too. I for one am hoping next month’s theme is fashion. We’ll find out soon enough!
