March PopSugar Must Have Box


It’s finally time for my March PopSugar Must Have Box reveal!* I’m so excited to start sharing these with you guys! PopSugar Must Have boxes are a monthly box that is sent to you chock full of random goodies depending on the time of the year. While they are on the pricey side of the subscription-box world (at around $40 per box), I think they are SO worth it. Let’s dig in shall we?

info_cover_edit

This month’s cover image is a bright white background with leaves and citrus fruits (am I right to say that’s grapefruit?). It definitely sets the mood of a great fresh, spring/summery feeling. The inside cover tells us that this box was inspired by renewal, citrus, spring break, fresh, and traveling. Sounds fun!

Now here’s a peek at what was inside:

Now let’s take a look at each item, their suggested retail price, info given with the box, and my two cents. πŸ™‚

bliss: Micromagic microdermabrasion treatment

Suggested retail price: $48

Info:

Scrub away winter dullness with this Micromagic Microdermabrasion Treatment from Bliss. Formulated with vitamin E, volcanic pumice, and aloe, the treatment will smooth and soothe skin for spa-perfect results at home. | http://www.blissworld.com

thoughts:

Though I’ve only had a chance to use this a couple of times since getting the box (the instructions say to use this up to two times a week), so far I am pleased with it. This exfoliant has a fresh minty scent to it, and the aloe has a cooling effect, though it is very abrasive on the skin. So while I don’t think it’d be good for those with sensitive skin. I’ll have to use this a while longer to be able to give a full review, so I’ll probably make a post specifically for it later on.

Greenmarket Purveying Co.: The Archivist Lemon + Cucumber Reed Diffuser Kit

Suggested Retail Price: $20

reeds_edit

Info:

The smell of spring is in the air with this fresh and invigorating diffuser. Handmade with natural ingredients, this lemon-cucumber kit is the perfect way to refresh your senses for the bright season ahead. | http://www.greenmarketpurveying.com

Thoughts:

At first glance I thought that lemon and cucumber would be an odd fragrance combination. But upon opening the bottle I fell in love with it. It’s one of the most uplifting, relaxing, very “springy” scents to have in your home. I’ve been keeping it in my bathroom to help provide a serene atmosphere, and it’s nice for my bubble bath nights. This item also came with a 25% off coupon that I already used on Greenmarket’s site!

Samudra: Pink Pina Zip Pouch *PopSugar Exclusive*

Suggested Retail Price: $40

beach_bag_edit

Info:

We love this hot-pink zip pouch from Samudra. The see-through material is great for easy access to all your beach items. If pineapples and pina coladas don’t get you excited for warm weather, we don’t know what will. | http://www.samudra11.com

Thoughts:

I can’t honestly say that I’m in love with this one. I don’t go to the beach often, so I’m not sure how much use I’ll get out of it. But if you’re one that goes to the beach or goes boating often, this would be great for you. My sister and her family goes to the springs and beaches around Florida fairly often, so I’ll most likely be gifting this to her.

Knock Knock: What to Pack Pad

Suggested Retail Price: $7

packing_list_edit

Info:

Never Forget to bring anything again! Knock Knock’s hand-drawn What to Pack pad makes packing fun and easy. | http://www.knockknockstuff.com

Thoughts:

Again, I don’t go to the beach or do much traveling at all. So while I don’t think I’d ever use this, someone else might. This might be another one for the big sis.

Wet Brush: The Squirt

Suggested Retail Price: $4.99

Info:

Detangle your locks pain-free with the Squirt from Wet Brush. Ideal for wet or dry hair, the famous Intelliflex bristles eliminate hair breakage while also massaging the scalp. Plus, this travel size is perfect on the go. | http://www.thewetbrush.com

Thoughts:

To me it seems like any old brush, to be honest. I feel like this would again, be great for the frequent beach goer. Nothing sucks like having sea-salt tangled beach hair (beach hair: good. tangled mess: not so good.).

Halfpops: Halfpopped Popcorn

Suggested Retail Price: $1.69

half_pops_edit

Info:

With more crunch and less fluff, Halfpops’ tasty air-popped kernels prove that good things come in small packages. Delicious and gluten-free, get ready to experience the new generation of popcorn. | http://www.halfpops.com

Thoughts:

I was actually pretty excited for these. I’m a food-lover, so anything that is “healthy” that I can snack on guilt-free is right up my alley. However, and I don’t know if it had anything to do with the Chipotle Barbeque flavor that I got, I was not a fan. It seemed like they kind of took all of the not-popped kernels out of a bag of popcorn, seasoned them and called them something else.

Special Extra – Benefit Cosmetics: Roller Lash Mascara & Porefessional

benefit_samples_edit

Info:

This deluxe sample set is a must when it comes to packing! For smoother-than-smooth skin, apply POREfessional for a lightweight primer and finish the look with this ultracurling Roller Lash Mascara. | http://www.benefitcosmetics.com

Thoughts:

I am so happy with this little extra! I’ve been dying to try out Benefit’s new mascara, and it’s awesome that I now have a little trial size to test out! And, I’m already a fan of the POREfessional, so now I have a little one to bring with me on the go!

Approximate Total Retail Value: $121.68

And there we have it. Nearly $122 worth of goodies all for the price of $40! For the most part I loved everything in this month’s box, and for the few items I wasn’t too fond of I can at least give to someone I know will be able to use.
