What better way to brighten your day than coming home to a surprise box? I know I’m posting May’s box early this month, but I decided that instead of putting it off until the beginning of June, I’d post it early and get it done and over with, so SPOILER ALERT to those of you that haven’t gotten your box yet.
This month’s box was inspired by glowing skin, mother’s day, fresh flowers, beach bum, colorful, and california sun. Let’s dig in!
Surf Sand Love Beach Towel: $40
Info: We count down the days until we can spend more time basking in the sun at our favorite beaches, parks, and pools. The year we are even more prepared with our perfect POPSUGAR-designed beach towel with sunny yellow and blue awning stripes that scream California Summer! | http://www.sistersoflosangeles.com
Thoughts: This towel is soft and the perfect size for sunbathing (as if I have time, HA). Hopefully I can convince my family to take a trip to the beach this summer and I’ll have this pretty and bright towel to show off.
Mini Plum Vase in Coral Red: $20
Info: Display your fresh flowers in this bright coral vase designed to spruce up any space for spring. Middle Kingdom’s bud vase is the perfect size to hold your favorite floral stems! | http://www.mkporcelain.com
Thoughts: Talk about the cutest little vase ever! And what’s better, it goes together perfectly with the coral/gray/teal/mint color scheme I’ve got going in my bedroom. Now I just need a few flowers to put in this…perhaps some pretty little wild flowers?
Tri’d & True y-shaped necklace: $32
Info: Once we laid eyes on this Tri’d & True necklace, we knew it’d be an instant favorite. The unique Y shape and triangle charm make a great statement on their own, but the piece looks just as great layered. | http://www.mykitch.com
Thoughts: When POPSUGAR gave us this sneak peak earlier last month I was so excited to see that I’d be getting another super pretty piece of jewelry to use. As a girl that isn’t the best at shopping for jewelry, and one that has very few pieces, I’m always pleased to see that POPSUGAR is slowly adding more pieces to my growing collection. I can’t wait to wear this necklace out and about, I’m so in love with the light and delicate pieces.
Bare Shave Cream: $17
Info: You’ll want to show off your legs all summer long with Sage & Row’s heavenly scented shave cream. This aloe-based goodness will lock in moisture and leave even the most sensitive skin smooth and radiant. | http://www.sageandrow.com
Thoughts: I haven’t had a chance to use this yet, but I can already say it smells (as they perfectly put it) heavenly. It’s not too strong but it’s a delicate floral fragrance that I’m hoping will last even after the cream gets washed off. I’ll be sure to let you guys know if this is worth it!
Dry Shampoo: $4
Info: Say goodbye to lifeless hair forever with a cherry-scented dry shampoo that does it all. You’ll get major body and texture wherever you are, and its convenient travel size is just the cherry on top! | http://www.batistehair.com
Thoughts: What’s better than getting great products in your monthly box? Getting products you already know are fabulous. I have tried lots of different dry shampoos, and none of them have stood up to my standards except for Batiste’s shampoos. The one I got in this box will be great to put in my travel bag (and the cherry fragrance is a plus!).
McCraw’s flat taffy: $1
Info: This multicolored McCraw’s Flat Taffy is just as delicious as it looks! Since it’s made with no artificial colors of flavors added, you can feel good about satisfying your sweet tooth. | http://www.hammondscandies.com
Thoughts: This…this is the one item that I’ve gotten from POPSUGAR that I actually really did not like. The taffy just tastes like the wrapper, and kind of plastic-y. Definitely not even worth $1, in my book.
Approximate total: $150
Well that’s all for this month guys! Another box of (mostly) great items to use and test. What did you guys think of the items? Have you used the shaving cream before, and did you like it? Let me know below!
