April Pop Sugar Must Have Box Review

Pop Sugar Must Have Box April 2013

I always get really excited when I get my email notification that my Pop Sugar Must Have Box has shipped. This month, I got even more excited when they told me my box was free because I had enough referrals! So thank you guys for signing up via my link! :)

Like last month, I lost patience and looked up spoilers so I knew what I was getting. The overall consensus about this box was so-so. I think a lot of people were disappointed; I, however, was not. Mainly because this box came with a roll on perfume oil that just so happens to be one of my favorites and it arrived just when I ran out. If that's not perfect timing, I don't know what is!

Anyway, this box had two things that I am not even going to review because I have not used them or plan on using them. In case you are wondering, one is a eco-friendly garment bag which MIGHT be OK if it didn't have a huge hot pink POP SUGAR logo on it. The other is a package of blotting papers. I have no need for these since my skin is more on the dry side. I might put them in my desk at work but probably won't use them. BTW, did you know that toilet seat covers are one of the best blotting papers out there? Kind of gross but I hear they work really well!

someecards.com - I ran out of my fancy blotting papers and had to use a toilet seat cover on my face to control my t-zone.

Ok, so now on to the good stuff!

Classy with a Kick: Kai Perfume

Kai Perfume - Kai is one of my all time favorite perfumes. It reminds me of Hawaii (did I mention I am going there TOMORROW??) as it has hints of Gardenia and other white flowers. I have the spray and the roll on and I love having both. The roll on is a bit stronger and is perfect for mid-day touch ups and traveling. This is the full size roll on that usually retails for $48 so already more than the value of the box. I could see people who don't love floral scents being annoyed with this item being the main product, but since I already love and was out of my first bottle, I was super happy to get another one!

Classy with a Kick: Alter Eco Dark Chocolate Quinoa

Alter Eco Dark Quinoa Chocolar Bar - Ok so this is pretty amazing. Since we are serious chocoholics in our house and eat a decent amount of quinoa, we were really excited about this. It's like a Nestle Crunch but with dark chocolate and toasted quinoa instead of rice. The company is all about natural and sustainable foods and they work with local farmers for all their ingredients. I think I have seen these at Whole Foods so I am definitely going to get one again.

Classy with a Kick: Shashi New Nugget Bracelet

Shashi New Nugget Bracelet - I got the grey/brown one which I think is pretty cute. Would I buy it myself? No, probably not. Will I wear it because it was sent to me? Totally. I like the idea of it but the metal part bends a little funny. You can't get it to curve so there are always bent angles. A little weird but not too noticeable to anyone else.

So overall it wasn't the BEST box I have received but I was so happy with the Kai perfume and the fact that this box was free this month, I can't complain. I can't wait to see what May has to offer!

    1. Kritin, you should definitely try it. I think they get the best stuff and it's usually full size products. So far I have loved each month!

  5. I currently am not signed up for in my monthly subscription boxes. I will likely sign up for Julep once I am back from vacation next month. I have never tried this perfume before I will check for it the next time I am shopping. I love getting boxes full of surprises in the mail.


  6. This looks pretty good! The perfume sounds great and the bracelet is so pretty! I have dry skin too and I hate when I get mattifying stuff or blotting papers in boxes. Have fun in Hawaii!!!!!

  7. I haven't heard of these boxes but I love getting basically anything in the mail. That bracelet is super cute.
