Y’all know that I love subscription boxes. So, I was super excited to receive the January 2017 PopSugar Must Have Box to review. First, let’s look at value of the box compared to it’s cost:
COST = $39.95 (use the code “SHOP5” for $5 off your first box)
TOTAL RETAIL VALUE = $190.73
Clearly, this box is an incredible deal IF you enjoy all of the products! So, here is what was included in the January 2017 PopSugar Must Have Box.
FRESH A PEEL MULTI ACID RESURFACING PEEL FROM GOLDFADEN MD (Retail value $85) – I had seen this brand online at Dermstore so I was super excited to receive a product to try. This peel contains lactic acid and fruit enzymes and is supposed to minimize fine lines and diminish hyper-pigmentation. I need help with both of these areas so I will absolutely be using this product.
DESK CALENDAR & NOTECARD FROM MAY DESIGNS (Retail value $25) – I LOVE the brand May Designs. I have ordered two personalized notebooks from their site and use them for my blogging notes. The prints on these monthly calendars are adorable and it even comes with a small stand to prop up on your desk. I work in Accounting so a monthly calendar will be super helpful to have on my desk. Plus, when the month is over – you can flip over the card and use it as a cute notecard!
YOUR HAIR WRAP TOWEL FROM DAILY CONCEPTS (Retail value $18) – I have actually been on the hunt for one of these hair towels. It is made with special microfibers and is supposed to help reduce flyaways and reduce your blow dry time. I also think it would be great to sleep in if you are using an overnight hair mask and do not want to get it on your pillow.
EQUA MAT TOWEL IN PLAYA FROM MANDUKA (Retail value $38) – I have been TRYING to get into working out at home (there are a ton of free workout videos on YouTube BTW) so I think this towel would be handy to have. I am glad that I received it in the box but I do not think I would pay almost $40 for a towel because I am not a hard-core yogi.
INSTANT HAPPY NOTES FROM SOURCEBOOKS, INC. (Retail value $8.99) – These are basically sticky notes with cute inspirational quotes on them. I think these are fun, but they feel slightly young. I am not sure that I will use these but I am sure I will find someone to gift them to.
PEPPERMINT LOOSE LEAF TEA FROM DEAN & DELUCA (Retail value $10.75) – I had heard of the store/brand Dean & Deluca from mine and my husband’s trip to New York City. My husband has recently become OBSESSED with tea so I was thrilled to see this included in the box. The peppermint is supposed to help you relax! The only negative is that we have no idea how to brew loose leaf tea!
N3 FREE – COCONUT AND BEACH WOODS CANDLE FROM GLADE (Retail value $4.99) – Ok this candle smells delicious!! Plus, when you remove the outer packaging – the candle is actually super luxurious looking. I would not have even know it was from Glade (no offense Glade)! Plus, who doesn’t like candles?!
Overall, I am thrilled with this box. As a beauty blogger, I do with that they would have included a makeup product. However, it is fun to get so many lifestyle goodies. The thing that I love about these PopSugar Must Have boxes is that I usually end up liking a majority of the products. If there is ever anything in the box that I do not think I will get use out of (i.e. the Instant Happy Notes) they always make the perfect gifts! What do you think of the January 2017 PopSugar Must Have box?
