POPSUGAR Must Have Box review July, 2016

The POPSUGAR Must Have Box is a monthly subscription box that delivers full-sized surprises in beauty, home, fashion, and more valued at over $100 for only $39.95 per month.


The theme of this July’s box is “Sunny, Retro, Fun, Vintage, Playful, Cheeky, and Warm”.


The Goods

  1. Hair in the Sun – Sachajuan. Regular price: $32.00


Hair In The Sun with ocean silk technology protects your hair and hair color from the sun with a UV filter that stays in the hair even after a bath or a shower. It also works as a styling cream, providing a light styling effect to keep your hair in place while enjoying the sun.

This stuff smells AMAZING! I just apply a bit through my hair as a styling cream and style my hair as usual. I normally do not use any styling products, so with this my hair stays in place and curled all day as opposed to falling straight by the end of the day. Woohoo!

  1. Emoji Cocktail Napkins – House of Pom. Regular price: $25.00


These cocktail napkins are made exclusively for POPSUGAR. They are decorated with Emoji and are 100% cotton. Aren’t they such an odd size? I was like are these supposed to be used as coasters or what? I googled how to use cocktail napkins and it says they can be used as coasters or to hold the glass and not have to touch condensation. So which one is it because you can’t use them for both at once. I’d feel more pleased about these if they were the size of other cocktail napkins and not the size of actual napkins, that just makes me uncomfortable haha.


  1. Porcelain Skinny Scarf in White – Michael Stars. Regular price: $30.00


This Porcelain Skinny Scarf, from the Michael Stars collection is lightweight, oblong and features floral print. It has asymmetrical hemmed edges and is 55% cotton and 45% viscose. It is 66 inches long and 5 ½ inches wide. I wore it yesterday around my neck, but this can be a great head scarf as well. Versatile and fashionable, I like it!

  1. Pineapple Pin – Pintrill. Regular price: $12.00


This is a gold plated brass pin with hard enamel and a black rubber pin clutch. It is shaped like a pineapple and is very cute! I put it on the end of my new scarf to add some low-key flare haha.


  1. Inflatable Swan Drink Holder – Sunnylife. Regular price: $18.00


“Allow your personal Swan butler to deliver up to 4 refreshing beverages as you luxuriate on your preferred flotation device. Created with durable PVC and including a puncture repair kit (just-in-case).” – That is the description from the site, I’ve never heard the word luxuriate before, it made me laugh. Anyways, this is probably the coolest thing I currently own. Now when 4 of us are in the hot tub, we can keep our drinks on this awesome swan drink holder… it makes me instantly more cool.


This the puncture repair kit>


  1.  Oh My Brow! Brow Highlighter in Pearl – European Wax Center. Regular price: $19.00


“Apply this soft, highlighting illuminator to give your arches a beautiful boost.. Apply along the brow bone and above the arch, blending with the sponge end. Available in one universally flattering shade. For an even more gorgeous glow, use above your cheekbones and in the corners of your eyes. “ I currently have been big on highlighting and contouring when I do my makeup, and this really is a perfect brow highlighter. It is also great for highlighting my inner corners of my eyes. Ch-ch-check it out!

  1. Classic Sea Salt Retro Potato Chips – Joe Chips. Regular price: $1.49


“We start with select potatoes and a very, very hot kettle. Then, we hand cook one batch of JOE CHIPS at a time (just the right amount of time) using all natural ingredients. This ensures the crunchiest of chips and the gnarliest of looks. And if by chance these chips make you a little thirsty . . . wash them down with some JOE TEA!” Wow this company thinks gnarliest is a word, and also clearly does not know what gnarly means to begin with. What an epic fail hahaha. Regardless, these chips taste amazing! They’re the perfect amount of crunchy, salty goodness.

  1. $20 Gift Card – Trove


“Trove is an online platform for discovering, sharing, and customizing 3D printed jewelry designs. Users can browse through a variety of design templates and use our intuitive in-browser customization software to personalize their jewelry to perfectly fit their style.
Once satisfied with their design, users can have their jewelry 3D printed in materials ranging from sterling silver to 18K gold and have their unique jewelry shipped directly to them in a matter of weeks.”

This is a cool concept, but since the gift card is only $20.00, it won’t buy me anything on the site. The cheapest item I found was $50. So I won’t be using this… if anyone wants it – take it.


The total value for the items in this month’s box is $137.49 if I don’t count the Trove Gift Card. With the gift card it is worth $157.49!  Not bad for a $39/month box! POPSUGAR Must Have box is definitely my guilty pleasure as far as boxes go. Besides this box and all my dogs boxes (because he’s my dog, duh), most of my subscriptions are $10.00 or less/month. I’m not made of money so I choose wisely, but this one really is worth the price. Highly recommended!
