POPSUGAR Must Have Target Box Review – January 2016
Every year, POPSUGAR and Target collaborate for a limited edition fitness and health box to start the year off right. It’s a great value, and one of my favorite collabs!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
FYI – This box sold out in record time. If you want to get email alerts for future POPSUGAR Must Have box news like this limited edition box, make sure to sign up for News alerts at the bottom of this post.
Props to those who packed this box – everything seemed to fit perfectly!
The Box: POPSUGAR 2016 Target Box
The Cost: $75
The Products: “Time to get motivated and make this year your healthiest yet. POPSUGAR and Target are back again! We’ve teamed up to bring you everything you need to get a jump-start on a healthy 2016. This exclusive box is fit-focused and filled with fun and functional essentials to get you motivated to move!”
Check out my review of the last POPSUGAR Target Box too.
This box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
Jawbone Up2 Gunmetal Hex Lightweight Thin Strap – Value $99.99
This was the spoiler revealed when the box was available for purchase and I love that this alone is worth more than the cost of the box! Here it is on:
It is super comfortable to wear and I like the clasp too:
This tracker features:
- Smart Coach – Personalized insights from Smart Coach guide you to make healthier choices every day and deliver the motivation you need to reach your goals.
- Activity Tracking – The simplest way to get credit for your steps, exercise and overall calories burned throughout the day.
- Sleep Tracking – Automatically track hours slept and quality of sleep, so you can wake up refreshed and ready to get the most out of your days.
- Food Logging – Set goals, log your meals and use Food Score to get the information you need to improve your diet and reach your ideal weight.
I’m most excited for the Activity and Sleep tracking. Since the battery lasts for 10 days and it is comfortable to wear, I’m hoping that means I’ll actually keep in on my wrist all the time. (I have an Apple Watch, but it has been living on its charger and not my wrist for a very long time now).
Mission EnduraCool Cooling Microfiber Towel – Value $15
Woah! I did not realize this towel was so high tech!
The Mission EnduraCool Instant Cooling Towel is made from a proprietary performance fabric that instantly cools when soaked with water, wrung out, and then snapped in the air to activate the cooling properties. The proprietary technology works by absorbing moisture and perspiration into the fabric core where the unique radiator-like fiber construction circulates water molecules and regulates the rate of evaporation to create a prolonged cooling effect.
Items like this make me realize I need to work out more when I think, hm why would I need this?
Define Bottle Sport Flip Top – Value $19
This water bottle is dishwasher safe (top rack) and BPA free! I like the design (everything unscrews) and you put fruit or herbs in the bottom section to infuse the water in the top section.
Pixi by Petra Makeup Melting Cleansing Cloths – Value $10
These are a great gym bag/travel bag essential, plus I like the Pixi brand. (And I can never get enough makeup wipes in subscription boxes!)
The other thing I can never get enough of? Lip balm!
S.W. Basics Organic Lip Balm Flight – Value $15
This set is one of my favorite items in the box! The lip balms go on so smoothly, I love all the essential oil blends (Cinnamon, Citrus, Cocoa, and Peppermint), and this kit came with a bonus face scrub sample too:
C9 Champion 3-Pack Headbands – Value $5
These are a little tight on me (most headbands and hats are) but the grippy lining makes them stay in place!
Skullcandy Method Ear Buds – Value $28
These earbuds are made for working out and have Stickygel technology that make them 30% more secure when sweating.
I workout at home in front of the tv, so I will likely swap or gift them to someone who will use them more!
Simply Balanced Freeze Dried Strawberry Slices – Value $3.50
Yum! The best part of Special K cereal! I’m guessing you’re supposed to eat these with cereal, yogurt, etc. but I just ate them out of the bag – so good!
LUNA Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Bars (6 Pack) – Value $5.49
These are gluten-free, non-GMO and amazingly only have 5 grams of sugar – I’m impressed! Luna Bars also have a good amount of all the daily vitamins you need.
Verdict: I think this was a great fitness box! A few items might be repeats for some fitness enthusiasts, but still the value should be good even if you gift or swap a few items. I also like that the fitness tracker has a stylish look to it, and I think that’s very appropriate for a POPSUGAR fitness box. The only issue I have with this box is that it sold out so quickly. (This box was sold out in less than an hour). Hopefully next year POPSUGAR + Target make way more boxes. And also, maybe they can do another collaboration box this year?
What do you think of the POPSUGAR + Target 2016 box? Were you lucky enough to grab one?
