August 2016 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“.
Okay, let’s see what’s in the August 2016 POPSUGAR Must Have box!
A peek inside.
As always, the info card included photos, descriptions, and retail values for each item. The July 2016 POPSUGAR Must Have box was inspired by the following themes: Motivation, Organization, Order, Fresh, Transition, and Back-to-School.
BAGGU Duck Bag ($26) – While I’m not exactly in need of any more totes, I actually kind of like this one (though I wish it were in a different pattern). It’s made of 100% recycled cotton and can be carried in your hand, over your shoulder, or across your body. It features a roomy interior and a small inner pocket with snap closure. Subscribers could have received one of many different colors/patterns.
Cargo Cosmetics Powder Blush in “The Big Easy” ($26) – A sheer, buildable blush that offers long-wearing and stay-true color. I like that it goes on sheer, but I have SO many unused blushes from subscription boxes, so into the swap pile it goes.
Christian Lacroix Paris Paseo Sticky Note Folio ($13) – I don’t really use sticky notes, so this was kind of a miss for me. I also wasn’t too keen on the fact that the colors used were so dark… How would you even read anything written on the bottom two colors? I dunno… I just can’t get behind sticky notes that require special colored gel pens or whatever you’d need to make the writing legible. Swap pile!
Triple C PowerGloss in Silver ($30) – This sleek photo charger is designed to resemble a tube of lipstick (or mascara?). It comes with a cord to connect to your phone, tablet, or other compatible gadget when your battery needs a charge on the go.
Unplugged Dusti Screen Cleaner ($5.99) – Now these I’ll definitely use. They’re little screen cleaners that stick to the back of your phone/tablet/etc. so you’ll always have something handy to wipe away smudges. You can even wash ’em.
Cookie Pop Cookies & Cream Popcorn ($3.99) – Cookies & cream flavored popcorn. I was hoping this would be vegan (since Oreos are), but no such luck. Ah well.
Yet another “just okay” POPSUGAR Must Have box. I think I would have been more satisfied with it if I had gotten a different patterned bag. I really like the style of it, but I’ve never been very into animal prints. Everything else was just kinda “meh”. That said, the total retail value was still impressive at almost $105 in products.
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!
