April 2017 POPSUGAR Must Have unboxing time!
If you’re new here, POPSUGAR Must Have is a monthly lifestyle subscription box that’s curated with a fun variety of “on trend” products curated by the POPSUGAR team. Items can range from food, beauty, household, fashion, fitness gear and everything in between. Unlike a lot of other subscription boxes, everything in this box is full sized. The total value is almost always well over $100!

Monthly boxes are $39.95, but you can save $5 on your first month with coupon code “MUSTHAVE5“.
Let’s see what’s in the April 2017 POPSUGAR Must Have box!
The familiar pink & white POPSUGAR Must Have box.
A peek inside.
As always, the info card included photos, descriptions, and retail values for each item. The April 2017 POPSUGAR Must Have box was inspired by the following themes: Reset, Natural, Healing, Clean, Grow, and Spiritual.
POPSUGAR released this bamboo cutting board as the first spoiler for April’s box. I love getting useful home/kitchen items in subscription boxes, so this gets a big thumbs up. The board is definitely on the small side (12 x 5 1/2 inches), making it ideal for smaller cutting jobs. The dipped (food-safe paint) color is a lot more subtle than I thought it would be, but it’s still pretty. 🙂
I wasn’t sure if I was going to end up using this body wash (I prefer natural bar soaps), however the bottle leaked a bit in transit and the scent was SO freakin’ nice that I can’t resist. The formula is made with good stuff like beet root extract, coconut oil, cocoa butter, carrot oil, and other nourishing ingredients. It’s also paraben free, gluten-free, and never tested on animals.
I LOVE this! I believe this was the second spoiler and I was so excited when I saw it. This little kit includes everything you need to make your own pretty terrarium: A 7 3/4″ tall glass cylinder vase, decorative sand, preserved mosses, and an amethyst crystal. Just layer the different colored sands, add the moss, and finish up with the purple crystal on top. I’m thinking a tiny air plant would fit right in there too!
Would I ever pay $15 for two small lavender sachets? Nope. Will I happily use them if they come in a subscription box? You betcha. 😉
I know it’s totally not eco-friendly of me, but I can only floss with those plastic floss pick things. It’s just SO much easier. My wastefulness aside, this particular floss is infused with coconut oil and features soft microfiber filaments designed to scrub your teeth while giving you a hint of tropical flavor. Put it on a plastic stick and I’d be all about it. Ha!
Nourish Snacks Holy Habanero ($1.99)
Finally, a vegan-friendly snack! Granted, it’s a tiny bag, but still… I’m happy to get an edible item that I can actually eat. These crunchy roasted corn kernels are seasoned with chili and habanero peppers for a savory, spicy snack.
Special Extra: Pronamel Strong & Bright Enamel Toothpaste ($5.99)
My husband has super sensitive teeth and only uses Sensodyne toothpaste (well, the generic kind 😉 ), so this month’s “special extra” is certainly appreciated. This paste is clinically proven to strengthen enamel as well as prevent cavities and whiten teeth. Wins all around.
Horray for April! — I think this is the first POPSUGAR Must Have box of the year that I was actually excited about. (It’s about time!) My favorite items were the terrarium kit, bamboo cutting board, body wash, and toothpaste. The total value of everything in this month’s box was $107. 🙂
If you’d like to check out POPSUGAR Must Have for yourself, you can save $5 on your first box when you use coupon code “MUSTHAVE5” at checkout. That’ll make your box around $35 shipped!
