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!

PopSugar Box – Only because I don’t like when posts don’t have pictures ;)

According to a Press Release just released today, POPSUGAR and the CFDA have joined forces to launch the CFDA POPSUGAR Must Have box. The box, which will be sold for $195, features items valued over $600 and is available for purchase beginning April 15.  The press release also indicates that fifty percent of the profits from sales of this Must Have box will be donated to the CFDA Foundation, Inc., which aims to raise funds for fashion-related charity and industry activities.

Thoughts on this? Are you going to grab it when it’s available?  Based on what’s been happening with PopSugar lately I am thinking it will sell out quite quickly! You know I’ll be grabbing one!

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

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!

April 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box Spoiler

It’s not exactly a spoiler so I didn’t “Spoiler” it, but PopSugar has revealed what inspired the April 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box.  It was inspired by “Spring”, “Simplicity”, “Markets” and “Outdoors”.  Any guesses on what it will include?

The March 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box is now sold-out, but you can use coupon code “REFER5” 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!

PopSugar Must Have Resort Box

The PopSugar Must Have Resort Box is now available!  This Special Edition PopSugar box is $100 (plus tax) and is a one-time purchase (it’s a totally separate purchase from the monthly PopSugar subscription). According to the website boxes will arrive by 3.31.15 (the conformation says it will ship by 3.31.15, but I am sure they will clarify soon). ETA: I just heard from PopSugar and the box will SHIP by 3.31.15! No spoilers (or coupon codes) have been released yet (other than to say it’s filled with travel inspired favorites) and I am not sure if they will release any spoilers or not.  I suspect it will depend on how fast the box sells out!  Don’t forget that the Target + PopSugar Special Edition box sold out in like 36 hours though, so if want to grab this one, do it now!

Note: The “Featured Brands” showcased on the order page (and above) are from PREVIOUS Special Edition PopSugar Boxes and won’t necessarily appear in this Special Edition Resort box.
