PopSugar Must Have Special Edition Resort Box

POPSUGAR Must Have Box is an exciting monthly box full of fun, must-have picks across fashion, beauty, home decor, fitness, and more, which is delivered to your door on a monthly basis. Boxes include full-size products and premium items including tried-and-true classics, celebrity favorites, and brands consumers have yet to discover worth over $100!  On occasion, they also offer Special Edition one-time purchase boxes which are separate from the monthly subscription. This is the POPSUGAR Special Edition Must Have Resort Box which sold for $100.  2015 was the second year they offered a resort box (you can check out the 2014 box here) and it sold out in a few weeks.

The Box

POPSUGAR ships via FedEx Smart Post.  They have two shipping locations (one in California and one in New York), but as a general rule the Special Edition boxes ship from California.  This wasn’t the case for the Target + POPSUGAR Must Have Box, but the Resort box did and took about a week to get to me.

The PopSugar Must Have Special Edition Resort Box

Unlike the monthly boxes the special edition boxes arrive in a brown cardboard box with a fancier black box inside.  I knew all of the contents of this box, but for some reason I expected it to be bigger?

First Look

All of the items in this box arrived individually wrapped in tissue paper.  Spoilers are fun, but it’s even more fun to unwrap everything and see it all in person.

The Information Card

The (2015) POPSUGAR Special Edition Must Have Resort Box included the following items to help make packing painless for your next trip:

~Stephanie Johnson White Dot Train Case (POPSUGAR Exclusive) ($80): I think the reason I thought the box was going to be bigger was because I thought this would be larger.  I’d measure it if I could find a ruler, but I’d say it would take up about half of a monthly POPSUGAR box.  It’s a good size for a makeup case though and I love the hot pink interior.  It has elastic straps on the inside to help store your items and the lining is coated in plastic so you can easily wipe it clean.  I totally love it!

~Jane Iredale My Steppes Makeup Kit (Warm) ($58): This set includes two lip glosses, blush and bronzer all in one fancy compact.  It’s even more gorgeous in person than it is in pictures and the colors will work perfect.  This is another win for me.

~Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum ($80): I have never heard of this brand before, but I am already obsessed with the name.  It’s recommended to be to used daily in the morning on your face, neck, chest and to the back of your hands.  I’m not using a day serum right now so I’ll add this in and see how to goes.

~Lele Sadoughi Half Moon Pendant (POPSUGAR Exclusive) ($110): This is exactly the type of piece I think of when I think of resort jewelry.  It’s simple, yet eye catching and will work with anything.  I also love that it comes in it’s own pouch to make for super easy packing.

~Jacobsen Salt Co. Pure Sea Salt Cocktail Salt ($14): I’m not going to bring cocktail salt on my vacation, but I will happily drink margaritas on my patio and pretend I am at a fancy resort.

~Sloane Stationery Passport Holder (POPSUGAR Exclusive) ($48): I have always wanted a fancy passport cover but never ended up buying one.  I am thrilled I never did though because now I have this one!  I love it.  The interior is so soft and has a pocket for your passport and one for other travel documents you may need.

All totaled this box had a value of $390 which is insane since it “only” cost $100!  Now listen, I wouldn’t have paid $390 for the contents if I’d purchased them individually, but $100 for everything is a steal.  I think this might be the highest valued POPSUGAR special edition box to date (save for the Neiman Marcus ones)! I am very happy with it!

Did you get the POPSUGAR Special Edition Must Have Resort Box?  What’d you think?  As I mentioned it’s sold out already, but POPSUGAR just announced today that they are launching new special edition box!  The CFDA POPSUGAR Must Have Box is $195 and will be available beginning on 4.15.15.

If you want to purchase the monthly box head over to the POPSUGAR website and use the coupon code “MUSTHAVE5” to save $5 off your first box.  The April Box is already sold out, but you can get on the wait list to grab one if they happen to end up with extra.  Otherwise your subscription will begin in May.  And don’t forget I am giving away a POPSUGAR Special Edition Must Have Resort Box! You can head over here and get signed up to win this box!

The Box

PopSugar Must Have Box ships via FedEx Smart Post.  They used regular FedEx last month which was awesome, but it was back to Smart Post this month.  My box took just under a week to arrive which wasn’t bad at all though.

We got full spoilers on this one over a week ago, however, it was almost so long ago that I forgot what was coming.

The Information Card

The March 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box was inspired by “Renewal”, “Citrus”, “Fresh” and “Traveling” and included the following items:

~Bliss Micromagic Microdermabrasion Treatment ($48): This will “scrub away the winter dullness”.  It’s recommended to be used once or twice a week and I am really hoping for some amazing results from this.  I am starting tonight and I will try and remember to give an update on Instagram in a few weeks.

~Greenmarket Purveying Co. Lemon + Cucumber Archivist Reed Diffuser Kit ($20): This smells incredible.  It’s very Spring like and I love that it’s not a super expensive diffuser.  The box also includes a coupon code (GREEN25) to be used on your next order from Greenmarket which I am sure I will be using.  They have a lot of cool things I want to try.

~Samudra Pink Pineapple Zip Pouch (PopSugar Exclusive) ($40): Would I pay $40 for this pouch?  No.  Do I love it?  Heck yes I do. It’s bright (SO BRIGHT) and fun and reminds me of summer.   It’s also much larger than I expected it to be.  I didn’t measure it, but it looks to be about the same size as a sheet of regular paper (8.5 x 11).  Oh and did I mention it’s bright?  LOL.  It’s seriously almost neon.  I love it!

~Knock Knock What to Pack Horizontal Pad ($7): I love these.  Sure you can just make your own plain list, but this is much more fun.

~Wet Brush The Squirt ($4.99): We received full-sized wet brushes from PopSugar about a year and a half ago and I love mine still!  This one is a travel size so just throw it in your bag and you’ll be ready for my next trip.  My SIL got her box yesterday right before she left for a trip overseas and was SO excited to get this to take with her. It’s awesome.

~Halfpops Half Popped Popcorn (Chipotle Barbeque) ($1.69): Is it just me or goes PopSugar send a lot of popcorn?  Do you think it’s because it has the word “pop” in it?  I have had halfpops before, but never in this flavor.  I think I like this flavor better than the original.  The more flavored the popcorn the better in my opinion.

~Special Extras: Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Mascara and Benefit The POREfessional Minis (~$12):  I love Benefit so these special extras are awesome. I got a sample of this mascara in this month’s Sample Society and it’s a good mascara, but it’s not my total favorite mascara ever.  POREfessional though? I  love that.  It really does smooth your skin and make it look like you put a lot more work into it than you really did.

All totaled I came up with a value of $133.68 for the March 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box.  I loved this box and for $40 I feel like I got a steal.  I known PopSugar isn’t for everyone, but it’s so for me!

PopSugar Must Have Box April 2015 News & Coupon Code 8

PopSugar Must Have Box April 2015

PopSugar Must Have Box April 2015

According to an e-mail I received yesterday, one lucky April 2015 PopSugar subscriber will win a trip to New York along with tickets to see Vanessa Hudgens in Gigi on Broadway.  It doesn’t sound like this has anything to do with the inspiration for April (“Spring”, “Simplicity”, “Markets” and “Outdoors”), but you never know.

This may or may not be PopSugar news, but I’ll share anyway.  So I have NO IDEA if this is a true spoiler for April or not, but if you check out this Instagram picture by “Mes 2 Petites Etoiles” you’ll see that they tagged PopSugar Must Have Box in it and also used the hash tags #popsugar and #musthavebox. I don’t see it fitting the theme for April, but I guess it’s possible this is a May spoiler?  Or it might never appear in a PopSugar Box!  It’s always fun to speculate though (you know how much I love PopSugar spoilers).  (Thanks to Alyson for the heads up on this.)  ETA: It turns out she was hash tagging the candle because it’s the chalkboard candle we got a few months back.  I didn’t realize that was a candle!  I thought it was a jewelry display thing.  Thank you Kristina!!!!!!!!!

The March 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box (which is shipping right now) is sold-out, but you can use coupon code “MUSTHAVE5” subscribe to receive the April box.  If you want to try to get on the Waitlist to get the March box just make sure you leave the “Waitlist” checked when you are checking out.  If they determine they have extra March boxes (you can check out spoilers for that one here), your subscription will begin with that March box!

February 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box

Yay!v My February 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box is here! I have been subscribing to PopSugar since their very first box back in July 2012 and probably will subscribe forever.  I just love them.

If you aren’t familiar with them, PopSugar Must Have Box is an exciting monthly box full of fun, must-have picks across fashion, beauty, home decor, fitness, and more, which is delivered to your door on a monthly basis. Boxes include full-size products and premium items including tried-and-true classics, celebrity favorites, and brands consumers have yet to discover worth over $100!

February 2015 PopSugar Must Have Subscription Box Review

The Box

PopSugar typically ships via FedEx Smart Post, but this month they shipped via FedEx Ground.  I think it was in part to try and make sure everyone received their boxes in time for Valentine’s Day and in part to make up for some of the shipping delays they have been having lately.  It will be back to FedEx Smart Post in March, but I was happy to get my box so fast this month!

February 2015 PopSugar Must Have Subscription Box Review

First Look

I always know exactly what’s coming in PopSugar because I look at spoilers, but it doesn’t make opening the box any less exciting.  Seeing it all in person is better than just looking at pictures online.

February 2015 PopSugar Must Have Subscription Box Review

The Information Card

The February 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box was inspired by “One Love, Hearts & Arrows, Red Hot, Devine Desserts and Pampering” and included the following items:

~Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush ($26): I think I said in a different subscription box review that I was already overloaded on blush, but I will make an exception for Tarte!  It’s a gorgeous color and gives you a natural looking flush.  Great stuff!

February 2015 PopSugar Must Have Subscription Box Review

Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush

~U.S. Apothecary Rose Water Bubble Bath ($30):  Ohhh, how fancy is this?  The bubble bath is in a real glass bottle and just looks and feels so luxurious.  It’ll leave you smelling like roses too.

~ACME Party Box Company Bamboo Heart Cutting Board & Cheese Knife (PopSugar Exclusive) ($32): I think this is my favorite item in the box. B and I aren’t going anywhere for Valentine’s Day, so maybe we’ll have a little wine and cheese feast with this adorable set.

~Bauble Bar Mini Arrow Pendant Necklace (Silver) ($32): This arrow pendant was sent in gold and silver and I am very happy with the silver I received.  PopSugar has sent us all sorts of different jewelry pieces throughout the years, but the small, dainty pieces are my favorites.  Probably because they are for everyday wear and that’s more me.

~Figs & Rouge 100% Natural Balm (Lemon Berry) ($8): Love this stuff!  We’ve gotten this brand in a few boxes (ipsy and GLOSSYBOX come to mind) and it’s just fabulous. The balm is lightly tinted and moisturizing and their packaging is fun. I am so excited about this!

~Chuao Chocolatier Ravishing Rocky Road Bar ($4): I have tried a few flavors of these bars (Target sells some), but never this one.  B is a huge fan of Rocky Road ice-cream, so I am going to save this for us to sample together.  Maybe with that cheese & wine on Valentine’s Day.

~Special Extra: Sally Beauty FingerPaints Nail Color (Pink Imagination) ($5.49): This polish is supposed to give you “intense color, durable shine and a long-lasting finish” with just one coat.  Meh.  I am not sure about that.  Maybe it’s because my color is so light, but I think it needs two coats to make it look good.

All totaled I came up with a value of $137.49 for the February 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box.  I absolutely loved this box and think PopSugar has really been stepping up their game the past few months.  Part of the reason I like them so much is because they send a mixture of items – it’s not all make-up or all jewelry or kitchen stuff, it could be anything! And they select items that fit my tastes perfectly.

Eeek! My Target + PopSugar Must Have box is here! WB and I couldn’t grab it off the porch fast enough today. This box wasn’t originally scheduled to ship until the 30th of the month, but ended up shipping much sooner because it sold out so quickly.

If you didn’t already know what was in this box, you probably could have guessed at least one of the items just by the shape of this box. As you can see, the first look was amazing and I loved unboxing it all.

The Information Card

The Target + PopSugar Must Have Box included the following items to bring you everything you need to make 2015 your healthiest year yet:

~LANEIGE Advanced Hydration Trial Kit ($10): I am not familiar with this brand, but I will be throwing it in my travel bag to use.

~Fitbit Flex Wellness Activity + Sleep Wristband ($99.99): A fitbit! Yes! I have a fitbix flex, but it is actually B’s so now we can both have one! He can have the one with the black band back and I will keep this. I’ve talked about my love for fitbit many times in the past and it still holds true. It’s motivating and easy to use and just an awesome tool.  And they have the best customer service. If you have any issues with your fitbit, if you lose it, break it, whatever, e-mail them!  They will help you.

~Gaiam Icy Marrakesh Yoga Mat ($21.99): I already have a yoga mat, but this is much cuter than the one I have!  I am planning to start working out in the basement (once I figure out how to get Hulu down there) and will be using this down there on the wood floor.

Gaiam Icy Marrakesh Yoga Mat 3MM

~C9 by Champion Non-Slip Headband ($6.99): This headband did stay in place as promised and it looks good, but I haven’t had it on long enough to know if it will pass the headache test. Headbands typically give me headaches if I wear them too long, but maybe this one won’t.

Target + PopSugar Must Have Box

~Brita Water Bottle ($8.39): I have looked at these water bottles at Target many times, but I never picked one up. It has it’s own filter (which lasts for 300 uses) and holds 20oz. of water. I have lots of water bottles, but this is going to be a great on the go one since it’s got the filter right in there.

Target + PopSugar Must Have Box

Brita Blue Sport Bottle 20oz.

~Simply Balanced Organic Dark Chocolate Trail Mix ($6.99): I am highly looking forward to snacking on this.  The first ten days of the Challenge are very strict and then things ease up a bit, so I’ll be able to have a little bit of this!

Target + PopSugar Must Have Box

Simply Balanced Organic Dark Chocolate Trail Mix

~Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes – White Tea Extract ($2.99): One of my thoughts on what would be in this box was face wipes and here they are.  They always come in handy and are perfect for your gym bag or purse or anywhere.

Target + PopSugar Must Have Box

~Target C9 Champion Gift Card ($20): A Target gift card? Yes please!  This can actually be used for anything at Target (not just Champion items) which makes it even better.

All totaled I came up with a value of $177.34 for the Target + PopSugar Must Have box and I loved it. Like I LOVED it.  Best PopSugar Special Edition box ever. I knew that the combination of Target and PopSugar would be a good one and they did not disappoint me. Not at all.  Such an amazing box.
