It's PopSugar time!! Are you ready for another Subscription Box reveal?! Today, we're taking the lid off of what is fast becoming my favorite subscription box - PopSugar's Must Have Box! While I haven't had a box that I didn't like yet, this one takes the cake and they hit it out of the ballpark (well...at least for me!).
This is my fourth PopSugar Must Have Box and it is, hands down, my FAVORITE!! I love everything in this box (although, one item will be gifted to someone else, but I still love it!). I was a little eager before I received my box, so I did a little Google search and took a peek at what was in this month's box, so I knew I was going to be happy. But, once everything arrived, I was more excited than I anticipated! With the retail value of this box coming in at $140, this was definitely a good buy at $40!
Are you ready to check out what I got?
Then let's dive in!
#1 | U.S. Apothecary Rose Water Bubble Bath (Retail Value: $30)
This is a very impressive bottle of bubble bath! It makes me wish I had one of those really big bathtubs with a pretty window above it and lots of space for candles and pretty things to sit about. I can totally see this adding a little vintage charm to that scene! But...I don't.
Also...I'm not really a bath girl. I much prefer showers because sitting in a tub of cooling water just doesn't do it for me. This stuff smells amazing, but I will likely not get to use it much (if at all) since I'm not one that indulges in bubble baths (Seriously...I've never understood the appeal! You get done and you're covered in bubbles, so you still have to turn the shower on to wash all of that off!).
So, even though this isn't something that works for me, I do love it from an aesthetic standpoint and I never mind regifting something like this that is beautiful and will bring someone else joy!
#2 | Chuao Chocolatier Ravishing Rocky Road Bar (Retail Value: $6)
I've rarely found a chocolate that I don't like, so I was thrilled to see this in my box! I've had this brand before and I've always loved their chocolates. This one has some salted almonds and bits of marshmallow.
I found the marshmallow bits to be a little bit weird, and I thought they were a little light on the almonds! It's mostly a solid chocolate bar with a few almonds and weird marshmallows here and there (which is fine for the marshmallow part, but I would've loved a bit more almonds throughout the bar!).
I've only eaten a little bit of this, but despite the weird marshmallows, let's be honest...I will polish this thing off over the next week or two!
#3 | ACME Party Box Company Bamboo Heart Cutting Board & Cheese Knife (Retail Value: $32)
I love anything heart shaped, so I am LOVING this heart shaped cheese cutting board. I think it's my most favorite thing I've received in my four PopSugar boxes!
There's not really a ton to say about it other than it's a cutting board and it's shaped like a heart, but it also came with a red handled cheese knife which I am also loving.
You can definitely expect this little board to be making a presence in upcoming photos here on the blog!
#4 | Sally Beauty FingerPaints Nail Color (Retail Value: $6)
I LOVE the color of this ruby red nail polish and I also love that it has a bit of sparkle (every girl needs a little sparkle!).
I haven't actually tried this yet, though (mani time is coming up this weekend!). I'm a bit of a nail polish snob and I don't generally like drugstore brands since they just don't have the staying power of the higher quality polishes (read all about my favorite brand of polish!) but, I do plan to give it a shot, though, because I love the color so much, so we'll see! Maybe it will surprise me!
#5 | Figs & Rouge 100% Natural Lip Balm (Retail Value: $8)
I have a slight obsession with lip balms, so this is another win! While I typically prefer balms in a tube, I'm not opposed to those in a cute little tin if they perform well.
This one, my friends, delivers on both fronts! It's cute and it's AMAZING! It's very moisturizing without being too too heavy and it smells wonderful (I received the Pomegranate scent).
This will definitely be used and used frequently!
#6 | BaubleBar Mini Arrow Pendant Necklace (Retail Value: $32)
I love jewelry and this little pendant is adorable. It's so dainty and feminine. I love the arrow detail and the mini crystals. I received the gold one and I was thrilled with that since I don't have a ton of gold jewelry. It's shorter in length (about 16") so the arrow hits just right at the base of the neck (right at that little spot that Ralph Fiennes says is his favorite spot on a woman in The English Patient!).
Word of caution, though, one of my friends received this box as well, and on the first day she wore this necklace, it broke! She immediately emailed customer support and in less than an hour they got back to her and promised to send a replacement. Talk about good customer service (which impressed me, since I have heard horrible reviews of their customer service)! So...if you got one of these necklaces, just be a little extra careful with it!
#7 | Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush (Retail Value: $26)
I have used Tarte Cosmetics in the past and loved them, so this was yet another item that I was thrilled to receive. While I haven't had a chance to actually try this out yet, I will be giving it a test run this weekend.
I love the color, so I'm not anticipating any issues with it working on me!
Alright, so if you're keeping score, that's 6.5 out of 7! How did I get 6.5, you ask? Well, since I won't be using the bubble bath, I can't give it a full point, but I do love it and I know it'll make a great gift, so I can't not include it either! So...6.5!
