My July POPSUGAR Must Have Box


Another month, another set of boxes. "The dog days of summer are upon us, and just because we may be searching for any way to beat the heat doesn't mean our fashion, beauty or entertaining routines have to suffer." This month's POPSUGAR Must Have Box was about staying cool and refreshed during these hot summer days. It was another great box that featured a piece of jewelry, a beauty product and some lifestyle items including delicious cookies. For just $35, I received approximately $100 worth of goodies. Here's what I received:

Tovolo King Cube Ice Tray in Red ($6.95) | NCLA Nail Polish in As If! $16 | Supergoop! SPF 30 City Sunscreen Serum (1.7 fl oz $42) | Mighty Leaf Iced Tea in Calypso Mango (Four 1/2 gallon pouches $6.25) | HannahMax All Natural Dark Chocolate Crispy Cookie Chips | BaubleBar Rose Gold Double Curb Chain Necklace (approximately $42)
I was really happy to see a Supergoop product in this month's box. I've really loved everything I've tried from them. I definitely could have used this serum this weekend since I was out in the sun all day and got a little sunburned. This super lightweight serum counteracts the signs of aging by repairing, protecting, and priming the skin for the rest of your daily regimen. According to their site: "Vitamins E and B5 aid nutrient absorption and cell renewal, reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Hydrovotin 24 stimulates the skin’s natural moisturizing agent so that the skin stays hydrated and well moisturized without the need of a heavy-duty cream. Uniprotect PT-3 stimulates the skin’s antioxidant pathways and natural enzymatic repair system."


My family is a bunch of tea drinkers... and that includes iced tea. This flavor is a blend of mango and tropical fruit that according to Mighty Leaf "...drenches South Indian black tea leaves. A sweet and cooling fresh-brewed iced tea with a rich, amber hue." Loved the giant tea bag and was easily able to fill up my pitcher with one. I personally prefer sweetened tea so once I added some sugar the iced tea was delicious and refreshing on a hot summer day.
I love rose gold so was excited to receive this necklace from BaubleBar. I didn't find it listed on the site. I compared to similar pieces to approximate that it's retail is $42. It is a bit heavy and I couldn't figure out how to lain the chains properly but still enjoyed the effort from POPSUGAR to include a trendy piece of jewelry.
Another item I was excited about was this NCLA polish. I have another one thanks to my Little Black Bag purchase awhile ago. I also purchased 2 more recently at the Shop Jeen sample sale. As If! is a timeless lavender color that you can wear all year round. NCLA polishes are 5 free: 100% free of DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Camphor and never tested on animals.

What do you think of the items in this month's POPSUGAR Must Have Box?

  2. Mighty Leaf is sooo good! If you want I could try to fix that BaubleBar necklace for you. It looks like one of the chains just wasn't attached in the right direction and can probably be fixed by flipping around the jump ring. You can bring it on Thursday if you can still come!
