I cannot believe how many beauty boxes are out there. From reading all of your blogs, I swear I read about a new one every day. I have had bad experiences with Birchbox in the past...and have recently had a love / hate relationship with Julep Maven. I was about to give up when I read this article on Ramblings of Suburban Mom of the PopSugar Must Have Box.
Between the stability ball to the LED watch (I love anything that changes colors) to the hot chocolate on a stick, I knew I needed to get this box. So I signed up...and I waited.
My box finally arrived on Valentine's Day which I know was like YEARS ago at this point, but I wanted to use as much as possible before posting my review.
So here goes...my first Pop Sugar Box:
#1 - Brokedown Spa Wrap. I love a good spa wrap. I even gave personalized versions to my bridesmaids at my wedding and have used mine everyday since...
How cute are we?? You can't see it clearly but everyone's names are embroidered on theirs!
The Brokedown Spa Wrap is about 10x softer than the one I own. It's a bit shorter but I love having another option. Also this one is pretty light so I might even travel with it. I always miss my wrap when I am not at home. Definitely my favorite item in the box!
#2 - MarieBelle Tresor Box. I got the dark chocolate pearls. I snacked on these and they were pretty good. They have crunchy middles...like rice crispies. I think I am going to use them on ice cream. But, I still have my box of Sees Chocolates from V-day so I am going through those first before anything else!
#3 - Nicholas Sparks Safe Haven Book & song download. Sorry, I am just not a N.S. fan. I might be the ONLY female in the world that has not seen the Notebook (don't hate me). But it was nice to get an actual book. I may or may not read this...we'll see.
#4 - Connoisseurs Quick Jewelry Cleansing Gel. My #2 favorite thing in this box. I used to love the travel version of this stuff but it's really hard to find in stores now. So I have been using the liquid version where you dip your jewelry in the jar. Although it works well, it's messy and kind of annoying to use. This new version is like the travel size but bigger. It's gel, not liquid so it doesn't get all over the place. If you are looking for something to make your diamonds sparkle - get this now!
#5 - Candy Conversation Hearts. Sorry...I hate these. I told my husband I would rather eat Tums then these. I love the sayings, but that's about it. They went in the garbage.
#6 - Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain. I could take or leave this. I tried it on and it was a great texture...really light. But since I only wear light neutral lipsticks, this will most likely go unused. I think there are some lighter colors but I don't think I will search them out in the store.
#7 - Hanky Panky Thong. I live in these so I was so happy to get an extra pair. I actually have these original fit and the low rise and love both. I tried to get the Victoria's Secret version and they are OK. The OGs are so much better. Now I have a bright blue pair which oddly enough, I do not have yet!
So there you have it. I am so excited to see what arrives next month. I would say the value of this box is way over $100 - esp since the Brokedown wrap sells for $84. Totally worth the $35/month.
If you are interested in trying out a Pop Sugar box, go here and order one! Full disclosure - this is my referral link so I think I get something when someone signs up. :)
Would you try this monthly box? What are your beauty box faves?
