The Products: “Must Have” items for women selected by POPSUGAR editors. (Fitness, Home, Beauty, Food, and more)
Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
Quay Australia Mandate sunglasses – Value $45
I didn’t pick up on it from the spoiler pictures, but the frames of these glasses are matte black (which I love). I think these will be a flattering shape for a lot of subscribers, but I’m not sure if they are a little too narrow for my wide face!
I’ve seen this book on a lot of Beach Read Summer 2015 lists, and I love that POPSUGAR included it in the box. (And it was just released on the 2nd). I can’t wait to read it!
I don’t usually come across a completely new-to-me product in subscription boxes, but this one fits the bill! It’s a sponge/buffer that is infused with body wash and lasts for multiple uses. You place it under water and squeeze the sponge to absorb the water. (Then squeeze out excess water after use). I like the tropical scent, and I liked the application too – now will just see how many uses I get out of it!
Yogitoes Peacock Headband (Value $4)
The slight texture on the fabric of this headband keeps it from slipping off, and I’ll probably use it for when I’m applying facial masks or cleansers like a few readers suggested!
Snap Infusion Super Candy (Value $4)
I’ve had SuperCandy before thanks to subscription boxes, and they are really good. They are infused with b vitamins, antioxidants and electrolytes, so I can almost talk myself into thinking this candy is good for me! (These were gone very soon after this picture was taken – I can’t resist gummies!)
I didn’t realize that Sweet & Spark is a curated vintage jewelry shop – meaning every single piece is listed as “only1 available.” I’m wondering how they will handle the POPSUGAR subscriber rush with that kind of inventory…
From what I can tell, prices start at $38 with free shipping, so you could get a piece for as little as $8. They have some gorgeous pieces (and a lot of gold jewelry) so I’ll probably end up using this discount code.
Pacifica Eyeshadow Palette (Value $14)
I love the packaging of this palette. I’m sort of bummed the palette packaging itself isn’t as gorgeous as the outer box!
Here are the colors with descriptions (from left to right):
Skinnydip – Matte nude base cover or lash liner. A universal highlighter.
Coral Sand – Satin coral for lid base or for highlighting.
Golden – Perfect Gold with just the right amount of shimmer. Use on lids and or for highlighting.
Urchin – Iridescent jeweled purple with gold tones. Perfect for lining and crease.
And here are the swatches:
I’m happy with the shades of this palette. They aren’t as strongly pigmented as some eyeshadows, but with a primer the colors hold well. (And I love that Pacifica’s formulas are 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and formulated without FD&C color, phthalates, talc, parabens, or petroleum.
Verdict: This box has a retail value of $111 if you count the list price of the Judy Bluum book, or about $100 if you count the Amazon price. (Neither of those totals includes the Sweet & Spark discount code). This isn’t one of my all-time favorite POPSUGAR Must Have boxes, but I still like it and will use everything. I’m also just so excited to get a book in this box! I think this is one of those boxes that I will like more once I use the products more too.
