PopSugar Must Have: August 2014 Review

August’s PopSugar Must Have box celebrates 2 years that these boxes have been around – crazy! Although I haven’t been around since the very beginning, I have been a supporter for quite some time. As usual, some spoilers hit before I received my actual box, aaaaand as usual, I couldn’t resist looking. I hope one day I’ll get my box BEFORE the spoilers hit. It’s so much more exciting that way!

PaddyWax Ocean Tide + Sea Salt Mini Jar Candle
I absolutely love candles and was excited to find the PaddyWax Ocean Tide + Sea Salt Mini Jar Candle ($10) included in my box! I only wish it were a little bigger since I burn through them pretty quickly. The scent was a perfect end for summer too!

Goodbyn Purple Meal and Dipper Set
I heard about the Goodbyn brand a few months ago and have been looking into purchasing one to bring to work for lunch/snacks. I’m glad I held off though because a Goodbyn Purple Meal and Dipper Set ($6.50) was included in my box – very excited to use this!

Kendra Scott Elle Earrings in Slate
I usually stick to my pearl stud earrings daily, but I actually really like these Kendra Scott Elle Earrings in Slate ($52)! What’s even better is that they’re silver! I always receive gold jewelry (which I never wear) in boxes so this was a very nice surprise!

The Mason Jar Cookie Company Celebrate!
Celebrate! Cookie Mix ($13) was only appropriate to honor PS Must Have’s 2nd birthday and ironically, my 2 year anniversary living in my apartment! I haven’t had a chance to make these yet, but they sound absolutely amazing. I usually stick with Pillsbury when doing box mixes, but I’m pretty excited to try this one out. All it needs is some butter, an egg, and baking in the oven for a few minutes!

Lollia At Last Perfumed Shower Gel
I’ve never heard of the brand, but Lollia At Last Perfumed Shower Gel ($22) smells and feels AMAZING, with the shea butter and jojoba oil infused. Will definitely get a lot of use out of this stuff!

thinkThin Brownie Crunch High Protein Bar
the thinkThin Brownie Crunch High Protein Bar ($1.50) was included as a “special extra” item. I’m not sure exactly what that means since the other items included aren’t considered special extras, but I’m excited to give it a try. I love brownies and protein bars are great, I’m just concerned that it might be TOO chocolatey (yes there is such a thing)!

Bite Beauty Lush Fruit Lip
Although a little brighter (at least at first glance) than I’d normally wear, it’s pretty cool that the Bite Beauty Lush Fruit Lip ($22) was a special color made just for PopSugar! I love that nourishing ingredients are included in this, including strawberry, coconut and avocado oils!

August’s PopSugar Must Have retailed out to almost $130 and I paid $39.95 for my box. Always love getting such a great value, even if I won’t use all of the products myself (there’s always gifting or swapping)!

For some reason my PopSugar Must Have subscription overlapped (I usually subscribe in 3-month bundles at a time) and I was sent two boxes this month! I reached out to the PS team and was sent a free return shipping label, so I’ll be credited an extra month. I previo

  • I've always thought this was one of the nicest subscription boxes out there. Such great products! I love the earrings.
