Eeek! My August PopSugar Box finally arrived today! Finally!! PopSugar is one of my most favorite boxes and I can never wait to get my hands on it! In case you don’t know, the PopSugar Have Box includes hand-selected items in beauty, fashion, home, fitness, and food and is basically like getting an amazing present in the mail every month.
Every month I tell myself I am not going to go all crazy and stalk PopSugar’s tracking (you can track by reference on FedEx.com using your subscription number), but every month I do. They ship via FedEx Smart Post and always takes at least a week to arrive to me in MI. My box used to take a week when it shipped from CA and it continues to take a week now that it ships from NY.
Of course I knew what was going to be in the box, but I was still excited to be able to open my box and check out my variations (this month’s variations were the body wash and the bento box). I am never overly upset if I don’t get the variations I want, but I am always anxious to at least see them.
PopSugar doesn’t just have an information card, they have a little booklet that discusses each of the products, includes pictures, etc. They also group their items into “Must Have” categories, which I also do. Here’s what was included:
Must Have Anniversary Gift
~Gorjana Open Circle Necklace ($65): When I heard that this was in the box I went on a hunt for my silver one that was just like it. After a good 15 minutes of hunting for it, I realized I must have sold it on ebay since, umm, I hadn’t seen it for about 10 years. But I did love that necklace so it’s no secret that I love this one too. I did think it was going to be more substantial though.
Must Have Home:
~Bentgo – The All-in-One Stackable Lunch Box ($14.99): I totally love this!!! It’s got two separate containers and a tray for silverware and I am certain that I am taking the boys to the park for lunch next week so we can use this! At first I thought I might need to go back to work so I could use this, but then I realized I can really use it anytime. I really want to get one of these for L for school. Actually maybe I will give mine this one and get myself a pink one! I could make him some amazing lunches in this thing and I love that it’s not crazy expensive.
~Lunares Apple Bowl (est. $45): I had to guess on the value of this bowl, but similar ones on the Lunares sell for $45 – $55 so I went with $45. I love this and it makes me want fall to come even more quickly so I can put it out! And if you have no use for it, I think it’d be a perfect beginning of the school year teacher’s gift!
Must Have Beauty
~Lulah Body Wash (Vanilla Orchid) ($11.25): I have never heard of or tried this brand before so this is nice. This was actually the scent I was hoping for which is awesome. And it works out well because I am on a “no-buy” for shower gel (I gotta use this stuff I already have up), so this will be nice to be able to switch things up.
~Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel & Precleanse ($10 / $9.50): I’ve tried a few items from this line, but they were always small samples and I still wasn’t sure that I liked it enough to full the full-sized. I love that they are a larger size and I can’t wait to try the “precleanse”. I have never used a precleanse before!!
~May Books Chevron “Weekly To-Dos” Planner ($17): I have heard so many things about May Books but have never actually ordered one. I am going to make it a point to use this and keep it with me at all times. I need some more organization in my schedule and hopefully this helps. And it doesn’t hurt that it’s adorable.
~NatureBox Dried Granny Smith Apples ($4): I haven’t gotten a NatureBox in a while and I have never had these apples before so they were a nice treat. The box also includes a 50% code for NatureBox, which is just what I needed to tempt me to resubscribe.
All totaled I came up with a value of $176.24 for the August PopSugar Must Have Box (not including the assorted coupons that also came with the box). As always it’s way more than the $35/month cost of the box and, as always, I love the box. I’ve been with PopSugar since they started out (back in July 2012) and I think they do a great job mixing things up every month!
