If you aren’t familiar, POPSUGAR Must Have Box is an exciting box full of fun, must-have picks across fashion, beauty, home decor, fitness, and more, which is delivered to your door on a monthly basis. Boxes include full-size products and premium items including tried-and-true classics, celebrity favorites, and brands consumers have yet to discover worth over $250!
Note: POPSUGAR Must Have Box has switched from a monthly to a quarterly format. The Summer 2018 box is their first quarterly box.
Disclosure: This complimentary box was received for review purposes. All opinions are my own, and no compensation was received.
POPSUGAR Must Have Box ships via FedEx Smart Post and generally takes about a week to arrive.
Fun Fact: POPSUGAR Must Have Box was the first box I have ever subscribed to way back in June 2012! It was POPSUGAR Must Have “Bag” back then, and their first shipment was in July 2012 (you can see my review of that box here).
The Summer 2018 POPSUGAR Must Have Box includes the following items:
~Sunday Riley’s C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum ($85): This serum (it has the texture of a lotion) “rapidly brightens the appearance of the skin with immediate radiance, while fighting the look of dark spots and discolorations at the source.” I have used it in the past and have loved it. It does a great job hydrating and brightening my skin and has a nice light citrus scent.
~Eberjey Blush Wrap Robe ($88): This might be the first robe I have ever received in a subscription box. It’s the first one I can remember anyway. I actually love it! I don’t have a robe, but this is exactly the type I would pick out for myself. It is a little sheer though, so keep that in mind. If you have pjs on under it, no big deal. If you don’t and are planning on running out to the mailbox in this, your neighbors will get quite a show.
~Mela Artisans Concha Round Box ($60): POPSUGAR partnered with Mela Artisans to produce this mother-of-pearl vanity box. It’ll work well on a vanity, nightstand or desk and can be used for a multitude of purposes. A portion of earned revenue from Mela Artisans helps preserve traditions by building relationships and uplighting their community.
~Lele Sadoughi Circle Garland Earrings ($98): These earrings are made from a mix of genuine stone and resin connected by 14K gold-plated rings. Unfortunately, they are just not my style. I don’t like the confetti look, and they are too long for my taste.
~Beauty by POPSUGAR Lip Gloss (Time After Time) ($18): Once POPSUGAR announced they were launching a beauty line, it was pretty much a given that we’d receive something from the line in this box. This lip gloss was a perfect choice. The color is flattering, I didn’t find it sticky, and the shine is fabulous.
~Sphynx 3 in 1 Portable Razor ($14.99): I hadn’t heard of this before the box, but I love the concept! It’s a portable razor that can be used on the go. Pop this in your bag, and if (when) you realize you missed a strip of hair, you’ll have all the tools (water, shea butter shave bar and two razor blades).
~Ahmad Tea Fruit & Herb Selection ($4.50): This tea is caffeine-free and comes in four varieties – Peppermint and Lemon, Chamomile and Lemongrass, Detox and Lemon and Ginger. I am not a tea drinker, so I will pass this along to my cousin who loves it.
~Special Extra: Mrs. Meyer’s Lemon Verbena Bar Soap ($3.99) and Mrs. Meyer’s Lavender Hand Sanitizer ($3.49): I am always happy to see Special Extras! We can always use an extra bar of soap and hand-sanitizer that smells great!
~Special Extra: Propel Watermelon Beverage Mix ($1.98): Mix these in with your water to get electrolytes lost during your workout. They are also a great source of vitamin B and antioxidant vitamins C and E., And it tastes pretty delicious!
All totaled the Summer 2018 POPSUGAR Must Have Box had a value of $377.95. That’s over 5x the cost of the box. However, I just wasn’t wowed. Don’t get me wrong, I am not disappointed either (I love the Sundae Riley and the Robe), but I didn’t feel like the box flowed (if that makes sense).
What do you think of the Summer 2018 POPSUGAR Must Have Box? Are you excited about the switch to quarterly boxes?
