Now, on to the items!
Canvas Home Shell Bisque Bowls, Set of 4 – Retail Value $66
This is an exclusive rainbow set to POPSUGAR and that the size for the bowls is 6″D x 2.25″H.
How gorgeous are these spring pastels? I love the colorful glazes contrasting with the sand-colored bases. And these are handmade porcelain and dishwasher and microwave safe! Since we’ve been eating all meals and snacks at home recently, these bowls have been used daily – they are the perfect size for a snack, bowl of cereal, smoothie bowl, etc.
Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask – Retail Value $42
I’m always happy to see Glow Recipe in a subscription box, and this eye sleeping mask is new to me! The formula is designed to help brighten, depuff and treat the appearance of dark circles. I need help with dark circles, so I’m cautiously hoping to see results after a few weeks. It’s ingredient-conscious, and it has encapsulated ingredients like retinol, hyaluronic acid, and niacinamide that time release throughout the night. I found the formula to be rich but not greasy, and very gentle on my skin. Even if I don’t see reduction in the appearance of my dark circles, I really like this as an eye cream – I love how hydrated it makes my skin feel.
Omorovicza Magic Moisture Mist – Retail Value $95
Two high-end ingredient-conscious skincare items in one box! And his mist is heavenly! The spray is super fine – you can apply it throughout the day over makeup. Also, unlike most facial mists, this is actually a moisturizer. It’s part oil, part water, and you shake it before applying, so the hydration lasts.
The Book Club Anti Blue Light Lenses – Al The Chemist in Sand – Retail Value $40
(subscribers have the choice between 4 styles)
Since I’ve been working from home now, I’m spending even more time than usual in front of a screen. (Although my husband Eric and I are getting into jigsaw puzzles for a nice break!) With even more time spent staring at screens than before, these glasses have been really helpful. I also know I shouldn’t be looking at a screen 2-3 hours before I go to sleep, but I’m really bad at actually following that rule. These lenses cut down blue-light absorption by 30%, so they are helpful to wear throughout the day if you are trying to minimize eye strain, or you could wear them just the few hours before you go to sleep to reduce blue light potentially supressing melatonin production.
Bluma Project Luna Necklace in Sand – Retail Value $75
(All subscribers can pick between this color or Lagoon)
This is a three-tiered necklace with a mix of tassels and brass beads. You can adjust the length to 20 inches at the longest, or choker length at the shortest. While I normally stick to delicate gold jewelry, I appreciate getting a slight push out of my fashion comfort zone every once in a while! It’s giving me vacation vibes, and I want to pair it with a black maxi dress and some warm weather!
Smudge Wellness Glow Spell – Retail Value $49.50
This set of crystals curated for Must Have subscribers is designed to help “reset, recharge, and reconnect in a meaningful way.” I am definitely a newbie when it comes to the world of crystals, but I can get behind the idea of creating and reinforcing the intentions you want to set in your life. The instructions included ask you to create a list of the toxic things you want less of in your life, a list of what you would like to replace these things with, and a list of what actions you can take to manifest those changes.
(Also, that zipper case is pretty slick!)
Now, time for the Special Extras in the box! (If you aren’t familiar, these are extra items that don’t count toward the value of the box. AKA bonus freebies!)
YOGI Blackberry Apple Cider Digestive Awakening Tea – Retail Value $4.99
This caffeine free tea is made from Organic Apple Cider Vinegar Powder, Organic Raspberry Leaf, Organic Ginger Root, Organic Licorice Root, Organic Blackberry Flavor, and Organic Blackberry. It’s designed to help support healthy digestion. I love tea, but I’ve bever been really able to get past the smell of Apple Cider Vinegar to enjoy the benefits, so I wasn’t sure if I would like this.
When you first open the pouch, the Apple Cider Vinegar scent is STRONG. But once I brewed a cup, the flavor was very subtle. I didn’t use any sweetener either and really enjoyed the tea! I plan on buying more of this tea in the future, I like that it helps settle my stomach (or at the very least, doesn’t aggravate it.)
What a difference a couple of weeks makes, right? I feel like these wipes are now worth their weight in gold! While I was searching for Clorox wipes online (all out of stock), I saw these Scentiva ones (also out of stock), and I was curious about the scents, so this was a perfect way to try all of them out. I am happy to report that the scents are not overpowering, and a nice alternative to the standard lemon and orange scents from Clorox that I’m used to! I liked them all, but I’d say the Tahitian Grapefruit Splash is my favorite. I look forward to a time in the future when I can easily buy these!
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $367.50 not counting the special extras! I think that’s an incredible value for a $75 box! I think this box is a good mix of home items, beauty, and fashion. Plus, there are many items that I’m already using daily. I really appreciate the quality that POPSUGAR maintains with their curation, too. So many great brands!
