As usual PopSugar ships via FedEx Smart Post and took the standard week to arrive. It always starts off at such a good clip and then it gets to my local FedEx Smart Post hub and it all goes downhill.
I knew what was in the box (I always post the spoilers for PopSugar because I get so excited about them), but opening it and checking it out yourself is different (to me) than just knowing what’s in it.
January’s PopSugar Box included the following items to check you check off those helpful resolutions and give you that fresh start in 2014:
Must Have Beauty
~Malin+Goetz Detox Face Mask ($40): This is easily my favorite item in the box. $40 is a lot (to me) for a 4oz face mask, so this feels like a total treat. It takes five minutes which is pretty much at the max limit for my skincare attention span. It suppose to address concerns for aging while instantly brightening complexion, which sounds good to me. I may use this as an “I’m Totally Trying It February” item!
Must Have Food
~The Juice Generation Book ($15.86): Hmm. We don’t juice, but we do have a juicer so perhaps we may use this. Maybe we just didn’t know what we were doing before? It also has superfood smoothie recipes in it too so I will check those out too. I have big goals of making green smoothies without them tasting the least bit “green”.
Must Have Fashion
~Jack + Lucy Knit Gloves (~$20): I believe this is the third pair of tech gloves I own, but I do NOT mind the extra! I live in Michigan and it’s freezing here. Seriously, it’s glove weather like 6 months of the year. And tech gloves are genius. Sometimes I am outside and want to take a picture or send a text!
Must Have Home
~Rifle Paper Co. 2014 Flip Around the World Desk Calendar ($16): I read a lot of comments that said that this should be in the December box and I have to say, I would agree with that. I don’t think I will use this as a calendar (I already have a bunch and only have one desk), but I am going to try and use them as prints and frame them. I would assume IKEA has some frames I can use for that.
Must Have Food
~Pipsnacks White Truffle Pipcorn ($6): I cracked into this right away to test it and thought it was great. However, I do feel like PopSugar sends a lot of popcorn (or in this case pipcorn). Does anyone else think that?
Must Have Beauty
–Revlon by Marchesa Box O’ Files ($3.49): Totally practical and cute. I don’t know when the last time I bought nail files were, but I like that they keep appearing in boxes.
All totaled I came up with an (estimated) value of $101.35 for the 2014 January PopSugar Must Have Box! PopSugar is $39.95 and almost always (maybe even always) has boxes valued over $100! I thought this was a practical box. It didn’t have that “wow” factor that some of the months do, but everything is usable in one way or another, so I am totally happy.
