The Subscription Box: POPSUGAR Must Have
The Cost: 39.95 a month
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, and what themes inspired the box.
Now, onto the items!
Kate Spade New York Photo Album - Value $20
My first thought when I saw the card in this box: Kate Spade!
This photo album is wrapped in a linen polka dot fabric with a green interior lining:
This is a classic Kate Spade look, and the white and black polka dot pattern should work with almost any decor.
It holds 80 4" by 6" photos. (I have a feeling this photo album will be about 95% pictures of Buckles.)
Stephanie Johnson Camera Crossbody Bag - Value $45
This red bag measures about 8 inches across, 6 inches wide, with a 3 inch depth.
It's see through and the vinyl material is waterproof, too.
At first, when I saw this, I have to admit I wasn't sure how/if I'd use it. It's pretty bold for my purse comfort zone, and I wasn't sure about the see-through part either. Then I realized that this is the perfect bag for me for summer activities like going to amusement parks, sports events, concerts, etc.
The bag is super easy for security checks, you don't have to worry about spills, and the crossbody part means I don't have to even think about it. (And the front zipper is a perfect place to hold tickets.)
Plus, it holds a good amount! Here is a waterbottle and my phone in the purse:
There's still room for a lot more! (Now I'm ready for another Disney trip!)
Sunny Life Eco Lunch Box in Watermelon - Value $18
Adorable! This lunch container is dishwasher safe, and officially the cutest lunch box I've ever seen!
I've sampled this line before, and I'm so impressed with their formulas. This creamy eye crayon is vegan + cruelty-free; paraben, sulfate, + latex + petrochemical-free.
And good to know, the bottom part is a built-in sharpener:
Here it is swatched:
It's a subtle highlighter on my skin tone, which is great for me because I can use it for every day, less-makeup looks. The formula has almost a powdery finish, but it's still really easy to blend.
You can use this as an upper or lower eyeliner, applied to the brow bone, lids and even the inner corners of your eyes to make them appear larger.
Smashmallows in Cinnamon Churro - Value $4
These are hands down one of my favorite POPSUGAR treats of all time! These marshmallows are coated in a cinnamon sugar crunch:
They are SO good! And the churro inspired marshmallow has only added to my Disney World vacation need!
And the box came with a coupon for 20% off your order at Smashmallow! (I think we're going to try all the flavors!)
This item is listed as a special extra in the box. Expires 6/30/2017.
(FYI - the sunglasses available at Velvet Eyewear are around $175, so I'm not counting this toward the value of the box.)
UPDATE: Thanks, Joy, for letting us know that there are sunglasses starting at $45 in their Trends section!
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $111. I ended up liking every item in this box, but I do have a few issues with it. One, this feels like a summery box, which seems a little out of place for March. (That being said, it's better to get summer items before summer starts, instead of after!)
Secondly, I feel like this box is missing an item. I would have loved to see one more small item in the box so that there were 6 items + the special extra instead of 5.
All those things being said, I'll use everything, I'm already daydreaming of a 2017 Disney trip, and I'm thrilled to see Kate Spade in the box!
