PopSugar Must Have August 2014

 I have tried a lot of subscription boxes. I love the idea of a little present for myself coming in the mail each month. So much so, I have tried over 40 different subscriptions over the years. A lot of people ask me which one is my favorite, which one is the most versatile, which one is the best value etc. My answer is always the same: PopSugar Must Have!

I love that PopSugar includes so many different products in each box. You can get a kitchen or home item, beauty items, you name it! Better still- everything is full size. I find that many of these boxes make great gifts just as they are. While not every box is a total home run for me, I always feel like I get more than my money's worth, and I am almost always pleased with what I receive.

 PopSugar is $39.99 per month, but there are ALWAYS coupons coming out to knock that price down. One coupon that is always available is REFER5, and that will save you $5 off your box. I purchased this box with a $10 off coupon that is unfortunately no long available, however it made this box only $29.99.

 1. Kendra Scott: Elle Earrings in "Slate" ($52)
 With PopSugar, most of the time everyone gets the same items, however, like in the case of these earrings, there can sometimes be a slight variation. Subscribers either received earrings or a necklace, in silver or gold, and with various stone colors. I received the silver earrings with slate-colored stones, and I really love them! They're are light enough to be incredibly comfortable, but also feel high quality. They were packaged in a cute Kendra Scott pouch along with a care card. These were the "high value" item in the box this month, and I really cannot wait to wear them!

2. The Mason Jar Cookie Company: Cookie Mix in "Celebrate" ($12)
 These cookie mixes normally come in Mason Jars, but for obvious (shipping/weight/delicateness) reasons, we received the cookie mix in a bag that LOOKS like a Mason Jar. All you have to do is add butter and 1 egg to this mix and you're ready to go! Unfortunately I'm not allowed sweets right now, but I have a feeling my fiance is going to love these!

3. Paddywax: Ocean Tide and Sea Salt Mini Jar Candle ($10)
How cute is this candle? Seriously I'm just obsessed with the jar! This is a very summery scent, and not usually one that I would be into, but I actually think this is nice! It smells like something that would be nice burning outside on a patio, or even in a bathroom. It's a very fresh, clean scent.

4. Goodbyn: Purple Meal and Dipper Set ($8)
 I was SUPER excited to see this in my box this month! Since having stomach surgery, I have to eat very specific foods, and usually, I'm stuck bringing my food everywhere I go. I've been looking for a cute lunch container, and this one is awesome! The lids stay on really well, and I just love the little dipping cup! Hilariously enough, it's probably my favorite item in the box this month!

5. ThinThin: High Protein Bar in "Brownie Crunch" ($1)
PopSugar always includes an "extra" of some sort in each box. While it's usually a food item, it can also occasionally be a drugstore beauty item, or something similar. This month we received a protein bar, which I couldn't be more happy about. I have a high protein diet, and I am always looking for "sweet" protein bars that taste good, but are still low in sugar. This one fits the bill, and was actually pretty tasty!

6. Lollia: "At Last" Perfumed Shower Gel ($22)
I am a huge fan of Margot Elena products in general, but I especially love TokyoMilk and Lollia. The scents are so fresh and unique, and all the products are very high quality. This shower gel is no exception. The scent is described as "white petals and rice flower" but it's not overly floral at all. In fact, it has a white musk kind of undertone, with a very light floral underneath. I absolutely loved this. I say loved because my mom stopped over the other day and totally stole it! I guess I'll just have to buy myself one!

7. Bite Beauty: Lush Fruit Lip ($22)
August 2014 is actually PopSugar Must Have's 2 year anniversary, and what better way to celebrate than with a Bite Beauty lip gloss in the signature PopSugar shade! I love Bite Beauty, but I have only tried their lipsticks, so I was very happy to have the opportunity to try one of their glosses. This is no where near as bright on the lips as it is in the tube. It's a sheer, pretty pink. This gloss is made with strawberry, coconut and avocado and is food-grade, so I feel comfortable putting this on my lips. Not to mention- it smells so fruity and delicious!

Overall Thoughts
This box retails at $39.99, although I paid $29.99 with a coupon. The total retail value of the items included is $127! PopSugar always has a sensational value, and I am so thrilled with the curation of the August boxes. Since September is the beginning of Fall weather, I am absolutely DYING to find out what PopSugar is going to include next month!
