Popsugar Must Have Box – June 2014 – Review & Coupon!

I have to say that Popsugar Must Have Box is my favorite subscription box. The boxes are designed to give you the ‘Must Haves’ of the month. The Must Haves in beauty, fashion, fitness, food, and home. Popsugar Must Have Box is $39.95 monthly, $109.85 for 3 months, $214.70 for 6 months, or $429.50 for a yearly subscription. Click here to sign up for you first box and use coupon code JUNESELECT10 to save $10 off a three month subscription, or use coupon code REFER5 to save $5 off your first box!

As usual the box came in its pink and white box. I love it because I can spot it easily when the mailman is walking up to my house with it!

IMG_1295

What a nice surprise indeed! Popsugar has changed its boxing!

IMG_1296

They also changed their little booklets that let you know about everything in their box this month and why they have chosen it. I’m sad to see the old ones go, truthfully.

IMG_1299

First look into the box unvieled!

IMG_1297

The One & Only by Emily Griffin $28 Ahh! I’m so excited about this book. I read about it in cosmo and i was tempted to buy at the airport this week. I’m glad I didn’t! I’m currently reading The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks, But when I’m done I can not wait to read this! I usually strongly advise people to going to eBay for all their missed popsugar needs, but, the link I provided has this book for $16 and its an amazon prime item!

IMG_1298

Shiny Citrus Body Lotion by Sachajuan $24 This lotion is supposedly great for wrinkles and calms irritation. It smells very nice, like oatmeal and fruit, I’m not sure if I will be keeping this item though since I am in my very early 20s and I’m pretty sure I don’t need this. Plus, thanks to subscription boxes I have more soaps and lotion my heart could ever desire. If you missed out check eBay.

IMG_1300

Turkish T Beach Towel $32 Normally I would have been so pleased to receive this item because, I love the material, I love the color, and I love the overall look of it….BUT… we LITERALLY just got this item in our ‘Limited Edition Spring Break’ Box. So, that was lame popsugar. I’m putting mine on eBay, for sure.

IMG_1301

You Smell in Lemon Wet Wipes $5 Wipes that smell like lemons…alright.  I could have gone without these. But if you can’t check out eBay!

IMG_1303

Lollies Basic Hair Ties $8  At first I was a little unsure about these, if I liked them or not, I’ve decided that I’m actually pretty happy about these. They are made out of the same material as a bathing suit to prevent them from stretching and breaking. When you’re not wearing them in your hair, they even look nice on your wrist as a bracelet. The only wish I have is that they would have given us the really pretty fun colored ones instead of the basic neutral colors. If you miss this, check out eBay.

IMG_1304

One Potato Two Potato in Hawaiian BBQ $2   I’ve received this brand before in a Love With Food Box and I tried Sweet Potato but I’ve been eyeing The Hawaiian BBQ chips when I found out about this brand last time, so I really excited to try these!

IMG_1302

Native Union $15 Gift Card  $15 I’ve received ‘headphones’ from this company before for the mens luxury holiday box, My boyfriend seemed excited about it but I don’t think he ever got around to using them. It seems like with this gift card you will still have to spend money seeing as they do not have much for $15 or less and you would still have to pay for shipping. This was also a very masculine item to include in this curation.

IMG_1305

I payed $40 and received $99 worth of the very best of the month (not including the $15 voucher) This price was pretty low this month, so I really hope they step up their game next month! This month was that big of a hit for me. Did you like this box?

Popsugar Must Have Review – Special Edition – Summer Box – June 2014

Popsugar Must Have Box is a subscription box that is designed to give you the ‘Must Haves’ of the month. The Must Haves in beauty, fitness, food, fashion, and home. Popsugar Must Have Box is $39.95 monthly, $109.85 for 3 months, $214.70 for 6 months, or $429.50 for a yearly subscription. Check out my review for the traditional style box hereBUT, this is a Special edition box which was here for limited time! It is the summer box which sends you LUXURY items and because it sends you luxury items the price is also higher than the traditional monthly box. The price to indulge in these luxury goodies is $100.

For some reason the limited edition boxes always arrive in a plain brown box, not like their normal white and pink box that they use for their monthly subscription.

IMG_1284

Inside the box was another box.This is the box that they use for every limited edition box. Sleek, chic, and a very well made box. I like to keep these boxes and use them for storage. (Mostly for hiding birthday/christmas presents).

IMG_1286

Box opened: Still black&white and very classy.

IMG_1287

Once more. Now greeted with the Must Have Summer Booklet, explaining what every item is and why they picked them for this box. every item in the luxury boxes are wrapped individually, unlike the normal monthly subscription boxes. I prefer that to be honest, I like having the thrill of the surprise.

IMG_1288

So the first item I pulled out was this Horn Necklace by Soixante Nuf Jewels by Joie Jager $155.  Its a nice necklace, I still have not yet decided if I like it enough to keep it or not though. I am very happy that I did luck out and get the turquoise. If you missed out on this item and want it I’m sure you can find it on ebay.com for a much more reasonable price than the website.

IMG_1289

Ocean Mist by Sachajuan $28 This is a mist for your hair that is supposed to leave your hair looking like you spent the day at the beach. It has 4 stars on amazon, customers are saying that it works very well but that the smell is very strong.  Personally I don’t think that it smells bad, it’s actually pretty fruity. You can even get it on ebay for less than the amazon price!

IMG_1290

Tarte Cheek Stain $30 and Lipsurgence Power Pigment $24 I’m actually so happy that this was a part of the box. I’ve literally been eyeing both of these products for the longest time. I don’t know why I never bought them, I guess the idea of a cheek stain was too advanced for me, or maybe just the word ‘stain’ freaked me out. I received both the cheek stain and lip pencil in the color Tipsy which is a beautiful pinky peach color. They both have 4 stars on sephora and everyone says that they are very long lasting and creamy! Always check eBay for the best prices!

IMG_1291

Blue Tropics Pouch by Samudra $60  This is a Popsugar Exclusive, but apparently you can still buy it on their website. Its just a little canvas bag they claim that it is good for iPads. Personally, I’m not really impressed. I’d prefer to not have items that were made specifically for popsugar, but thats just me. If you disagree, and must have this bag, do yourself a favor and go to eBay!

IMG_1293

Eliunt Extra Virgin Olive Oil from The Ingredient Finder  $15 These olive oils are from different countries all around the globe. The one I received is from Australia! I’ve never been there so I can’t wait to see what their olive oil taste like! My sister has been dying to go to Australia for years now and she is basically allergic to everything, but she can actually have this! So it will be nice to share this with her. If you want to try this flavor or a different flavor for less than the website, check out eBay.

IMG_1292

City Rocks Glasses from Sisters of Los Angeles $45 These were made exclusively for Popsugar, and have the Popsugar logo on the bottom of the glasses. They are San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, and London. I feel like London is a little misplaced though, since it seemed to be like U.S. cities and then one European city. …You know the drill… eBay.

IMG_1294

So I payed $100 for this box and received $357 worth of really awesome beauty, fashion, food, and home products, that I can not wait to use . If you missed out on this box and want ALL of the stuff in this box you can go to ebay and some people are selling their whole box for $99! What did you think of this limited edition box? What product did you like the most and what do you think they should have included in this box instead of other products?

Lucky Magazine Deal 50% Off Herbivore Botanicals

Every weekday Lucky Magazine posts deals usually for 50% Off a product or a whole website they deem worthy. Today is Herbivore Botanicals, They have soaps, face masks, and body salts.  The code for today is luckydaily1. But hurry because this deal will only last till June10 at 12pm.

imgres

I bought this Pink Clay Exfoliating Mask. It is 100% natural ingredients and Organic. It would usually be $18.00 but with the code luckydaily1 it was only $9. Shipping is only $3.50. The only downside is that they ONLY accept paypal. So if you do not have one you are kind of out of luck on this website. Apparently they are sold in Anthropoligie stores too, but they are currently sold out online. I can not wait to get mine in the mail! Will you take advantage of this sale and get one too? Have you heard of this brand and tried it before?

Square Hue – Review – June 2014

Square Hue is a nail polish subscription box which is $14 + $5 shipping. You will receive three FULL SIZED .50 oz nail polishes. They are a “5-Free” Clean formula – Does not contain Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP, Camphor or Formaldehyde Resin. They are NOT tested on animals and are made in the USA!

This month was MAUI!

It came in the smallest box I think I have ever received.

image

Just to compare! AND I wear a size 7 1/2. This box is tiny!

image 2

First look when you open the box

image 3

Unveiled!

image 4

The first color I pulled out was Ala Moana. It is a satin finish and it is a gorgeous turqouise blue.

image

These colors look really similar but this one is a lighter blue with a micro glitter finish. Its called Ka’ahumanu. I like how when you apply this glitter nail polish it’s still a  nail polish and not just a glitter top coat!

image 7

The last one is this beautiful Oragne-y tan color called Wailea and it is a high gloss creme finish.

image 6

I’m really impressed by how great the quality of these nail polishes really are. These bottles seem to be designed really nicely and very well made. All of the nail polishes glide on very smoothly and have a very creamy look to them. I am so Impressed with the quality of this nail polish subscription. A+ and a gold star for you, square hue!

They only thing that bothers me is that they do not have a store to buy there nail polishes. they are only a subscription box company that makes there own nail polish so it is difficult to find prices for the nail polishes and if you missed out on a color you really liked, its gone. They only make a limited amount each month. So if you really like some of the colors in this months box and you missed it I’m sure you could find them on ebay!
