Spongelle Spongology Body Buffer – Value $20
This buffer is a little on the rough side (but it is called a buffer, so I’m not sure why that surprised me). The sponge is infused with body wash to last for 20 washes, and after using it only once I could tell a major difference in the softness of my skin! I think I may try their cellulite glove next!
Kocostar Foot Therapy – Value $10
These are natural, paraben-free, and a perfect inclusion for sandal season in my opinion! Here are the booties out of the package:
I’m a big fan of Baby Foot, so I was already familiar with the slightly weird feeling of putting these booties on at first! You have to wear them for 1.5 hours, so I think they are perfect for a little Netflix binge watching! (They are not easy to move around in, so plan ahead!)
Bluma Project Capri Bracelets (Set of 2) – Value $44
Here is a better look at the bracelets:
They are super delicate, and I love the colors. POPSUGAR has declared this the year of the tassel, so I guess I better get on board! Here they are on:
Happy Spritz Breathe Deeply Spray – Value $25
This spray is made with all natural essential oils and it has a super minty and eucalyptus scent. You can use it as a face or body mist, and I like it as a room freshener, too.
POPSUGAR also recommends spritzing it on your yoga mat:
Gaiam Foldable Yoga Mat – Value $24.95
This yoga mat is designed for travel, so it’s not as thick as a standard yoga mat (only 2 mm). You’ll still want to use your regular yoga mat at home, but this is great for packing in a carry-on suitcase, tote bag, etc. Here it is out of the packaging:
And in case what you are wondering what this mat looks like unfolded with Cairn Terrier/Poodle Mix on it:
Hint Caffeine Kick Water – Value $1.69
My husband and I were both intrigued by this – we’re always looking for new non-sweetened beverages to try. The cayenne definitely gives it a little kick (even though I think the Kick name is about the 60 mg of caffeine per bottle).
I’m glad we got this variation in the box because it’s a flavor I never would have thought to try otherwise!
Revlon Volume Length Magnified Mascara – Value $9
I give this mascara a B+! I was happy with the length and volume, and I had no issues with clumping despite applying MANY layers!
JimmyBar! Peanut Butter Clutter Bar – Value $2.49
I love a bar with a simple ingredient list: dates, peanut butter, crisp brown rice, peanuts, almonds and honey.
It was pretty good. Not good enough to order more, but good enough to finish!
Half Hitch Goods $10 Gift Code
Not valid on previous purchases or shipping. Valid through 6/30/2016. There isn’t anything on the site that is $10 or less, but they do have some nice items. Pretty pricey, though!
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $137. I wasn’t sure about this box when I first saw the spoilers, but it has grown on me considerably! I like the spa/health vibe of the box, and I’ll use everything. And I appreciate that POPSUGAR still can mix it up after years of sending boxes!
