Makers Kit Crystal Sand Art Terrarium – Retail Value $32
The kit comes with instructions to put together your terrarium.
And Makers Kit sent along a coupon for POPSUGAR subscribers, too:
While Makerskit no longer offers a monthly subscription box, you can use this coupon towards a purchase of the Makerskit Craft Box Limited Edition ($50 retail value).
This was super easy to make. I just cut off the corners of the colored sand bags and poured in a circular motion to create level layers. (I recommend putting a paper towel down before you get started just in case there are any spills.)
I have zero green thumb, but I love the idea of having plants in my office, so this little terrarium is perfect for me. (The dried mosses don’t need water!)
This is one of my favorite POPSUGAR items this year! I love getting home items in their boxes, and this terrarium is so unique and fun! Plus it’s an easy DIY project with chic results!
MORNING CULTURE Dipped Bamboo Cutting Board – Retail Value $22
This bamboo cutting board is dipped in food-grade safe paint:
It measures about 12 x 5.5 inches.
And it is hand wash only.
They recommend using the cutout handle to hold a bowl of dip:
It’s a smaller tray, so it’s good for displaying appetizers, or perfect for a picnic cutting board. (Thanks for the picnic idea, Bella01!)
Or it works for a mug, too:
I like it is a nightstand tray!
Tonic Australia Lavender Sachets – (Set of 2) Value $15
These sachets are made with 100% cotton and filled with pure lavender flowers. And they smell amazing! If you are a lavender fan like I am, I’m sure you will love these!
And the fabric prints are so cute, too! (They have an Anthropologie vibe!)
POPSUGAR recommends using these in your closet, or under your pillow. (I also like using sachets in my suitcases to keep them smelling fresh.)
First, I love the bottle design of this body wash. How cute is that little leaf?
This shower oil/body wash is paraben-free, gluten-free, and never tested on animals. It’s a lightweight formula compared to a typical body wash, and it lathers well. The scent is subtle, and a bit perfumey, but I like it.
And the body oil comes with a coupon code for 30% off your next order!
Cocolab Cocofloss – Value $8
(Flavors may vary)
More lovely packaging!
Admittedly, I don’t get very excited for floss, but it’s in the box so of course, I’ll try it!
This floss has microfiber filaments so it gets your teeth cleaner than regular floss. And it has a subtle mint flavor, too. I like the flavor and I think it left my teeth feeling cleaner than my regular floss picks.
Nourish Holy Habanero Roasted Corn – Value $2
These snacks are gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and non-GMO!
The roasted corn provides a good crunch, and they are seasoned with lots of spice! I liked these but found I could only eat a few at a time. (For spice reference, I always go for mild salsa at Chipotle.)
This item is a Special Extra for the box.
This toothpaste is designed for sensitive teeth, and to help strengthen enamel. The formula isn’t a very sweet mint (like I usually use), but I don’t mind it.
On one hand, it feels a little weird getting both floss and toothpaste in a POPSUGAR box, but on the other hand, they go together well. (Let me know what you think!)
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $102. While this isn’t one of the highest value POPSUGAR Must Have boxes, I really like the items this month. This box feels like spring, and I love that there are multiple home items in the box! The floss and body oil are new brand discoveries to me, too.
(And while it was a bit weird getting floss and toothpaste in this box, they are super usable items!)
