This month POPSUGAR sent me their Must Have box to try. Considering that most subscription boxes I’ve tried in the past are filled with just beauty products this one was a completely different experience. The Must Have box is a fun mix of things including fashion, skincare, snacks, games, beauty, etc. Once in a while they’ll include a book. You can see their past boxes here. They always curate their selection to the season and it’s like getting a box of fun presents! The June box is valued at over $100 and costs just $39.95.
Inside my June box was:
- Hat Attack neutral diamonds printed sarong
- Sisters of Los Angeles “Cheers” gold bottle opener
- Wild and Wolf Ridley’s Games Room “Who Am I?” Quiz
- NCLA ‘Born on the 4th’ nail lacquer
- Knock Knock Are You Ready (For Your Close-Up?) Compact
- Pacifica underarm deodorant wipes
- Pressels Sriracha
The bottle opener and Pressels I gave right to my husband. Sriracha just isn’t my thing, and I don’t drink beer or other drinks that might need a bottle opener. I prefer wine. Besides those two items though, this was a great box for me! The beautiful and lightweight sarong (100% cotton) is enormous and can be used in so many different ways – skirt, top, shawl, scarf etc.
I was most excited for the Pacifica Underarm Deodorant Wipes because I already use and love these. I hadn’t tried them in this scent though, just the coconut. The coconut and kale version is a little bit lighter than the other and has a beautiful fresh fruit/coconut type scent. These are awesome to have around in the summer! They’re great to use on super hot days when you need to refresh in the afternoon, or after a workout etc.
My next favorite thing was the game! How fun. I don’t ever purchase games but I do love them. This one contains a deck of cards each with a name at the top and five hints as to who the person is. Example:
I was born in 1964.
I am a singer, actress and model.
I briefly sang with Faith No More.
I was in a relationship with Kurt Cobain.
I formed the band Hole in 1989.
…. can you guess? ….
You can play one on one or in teams. If you guess right after only one hint you get 5 points, after two hints, 4 points etc. My husband and I tried it the other night and we are absolutely horrible at it. But it was really fun!
A bright mirror was also in this box – perfect to throw in your purse or beach bag. And a fun polish for Independence Day. I’m not typically a huge fan of the chunky glitter polishes – they can be a bitch to remove – but when you want red white and blue fireworks for your nails it is very festive! NCLA polishes are cruelty-free and five-free. This one would really pop over a coat of true white polish.
This box was definitely giving off summer vibes and for a moment had me feeling like I was a kid again on summer break.
