June Inspiration

The themes that inspired June’s box.

PSMH 3

NCLA Born On the 4th Nail Lacquer, $16 

This cruelty-free red, white, and blue polish can stand alone or worn on top of a different polish.  I haven’t tried this one yet but it looks very festive and appropriate for the 4th of July weekend.

Pacifica Underarm Deodorant Wipes, $9

An easy way to freshen up on the go, these travel-ready wipes neutralize odors and have an aluminum-free and vegan formula.  I was a bit skeptical to try these at first but also curious as I have been looking for natural deodorant alternatives.  I’m actually impressed with how well these held up throughout the day and while working out.  I did find I needed to reapply before working out to keep completely odor free but overall, I will definitely purchase these again.

Knock Knock Are Your Ready (For Your Close-Up?) Compact, $10

A cheeky compact mirror that’s durable enough to throw into a beach bag for touch-ups on the go.  Personally, this item felt a little on the cheap side.  One side kind of magnifies which is nice but I gave this one away as I just wasn’t thrilled with it.
PSMH 2

Wild and Wolf Ridley’s Games Room “Who Am I?” Quiz, $12.95

An easy-to-play game that you can bring anywhere to keep you and your friends guessing which celebrity it is.  Haven’t used this but I’m sure it will come in handy as I’m always up for board games. I just hope that they’re not too hard to guess. 😉

Sisters of Los Angeles “Cheers” Gold Bottle Opener, $12.95

A weekend staple, this golden bar accessory is the ideal companion to your favorite brew.  Again, not an item I was overly thrilled with.  It’s nice and sturdy with some heft but eh, nothing to brag about.

Pressels Siracha, $1.29 

I’m pretty much always happy when there are food items included.  These have less fat and sodium than regular chips with a hint of spice.  Although these were definitely not spicy or close to a siracha flavor, they were still tasty nonetheless and provided a filling snack.

Hat Attack

Hat Attack Neutral Diamonds-Printed Sarong, $58

This multifunctional sarong is lightweight and easy to pack.  You can switch up how you tie it, creating different possibilities on how to use it.  Another item I was just not too thrilled to receive either. It has a nice design but I think I would have preferred a beach towel.

Overall, this was not my favorite box.  The main item that was stellar was the Pacifica Underarm Deodorant Wipes and I enjoyed the Pressels but other than these, this box was not exciting. 😦  Here’s to hoping next month is better.

What did you think of this month’s box?

PSMH

Hi guys!  March’s PopSugar Must Have box has arrived and if you haven’t heard of this it’s a monthly box whose items range from fashion, beauty, home, fitness and food, making it a well rounded subscription box.  All items are full size and valued at over $100. Subscriptions range from $18.95-$39.95.

Take a look at this month’s inspiration plus the contents inside!

PSMH Inspiration

Inspiration behind March’s box. 

 

PSMH 1

Hello Extra Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste, $4.49

This toothpaste is peroxide and preservative-free, vegan, packaged in a recyclable carton, and made in the USA, making it good for you and the earth.  I’ve received samples of the Hello toothpaste in one of my Target Beauty Boxes and I liked it.  Will try this soon.

Govino Go-Anywhere Carafe and Water Glass Set, $14.95

Made from BPA-free polymer, this carafe and glass stylishly helps you hit your daily water intake goal.  It resembles fine crystal but is shatterproof, making it easy to take it anywhere you go.  Picnic anyone?

Goodie Girl Cookies Toffee Chaos, $4.99

Toffee and chocolate cookies.  Need I say more? Oh, they are also gluten-free, made with kosher dairy and sans peanuts, and have a low fat, sugar and calorie content.  Share at your discretion. 😉

PSMH 2

Miss Ivy Pearl Five-Tassel Necklace, $38

This necklace is minimal enough to be worn with other beachy baubles or alone.  I love the color but am not a huge fan of tassels. We’ll see if I can make this work.

Nanette Nanette Lepore Classic Rose Gold Watch, $55

For lovers of the rose gold trend (me!), this watch exclusively designed for PopSugar features a neutral strap that makes it easy to pair with all of your favorite outfits.  So glad this one was included. *Swoon.*

 

Lola

LOLA Gift Card (Special Extra), $10

A gift card that provides a free box of tampons made with 100 percent cotton.  Not sure if I need a subscription box for feminine products but I’ll keep it in mind.

PIXI

Pixi by Petra Book of Beauty, Minimal Makeup, $24

A beauty kit that has two highlighters, two cheek tints, and four eyeshadows.  It’s your secret weapon to create the perfect “no makeup” look that will enhance your natural glow and eliminate the guesswork from your daily beauty routine.  As pretty as this looks, I will be gifting this away as I already have similar colors.

That’s it for this month’s box.  It’s not my absolute favorite box from PopSugar, but I love the watch that was included so no loss here.

What do you think of this month’s box?
