POPSUGAR Must Have Box for August 2014 Review

by Lisa Heath

Press Sample

I’m big on subscription boxes.  I absolutely love the element of surprise month after month.  Sure, some months are duds, but overall – I’m still happy when they arrive!

This month I received a POPSUGAR Must Have Box and I guarantee, this one was not a dud!  If you’ve never seen a POPSUGAR Must Have box before, this is pretty much a little bit of everything for women!  Beauty, food, home, etc… it’s awesome!

Kendra Scott Elisa Necklace

The Kendra Scott Elisa Necklace in Black Cat’s Eye is really pretty.  It’s on a short, delicate chain (which is what I prefer) with a small black oval stone.  If you want a simple but eye catching necklace for a night out or to just add a little something to an outfit, this would be perfect.

Suggested Retail Price: $50.00

Paddywax Mini Jar Candle

Any other candle crazed people here?  Paddywax Mini Jar Candle is in the scent Ocean Tide + Sea Salt. This is a unisex candle and perfect for any room in the house.  This is a hand poured candle and has a fresh ocean scent with that slight bite of salty air.

Suggested Retail Price: $10.00

Goodbyn Meal & Dipper Set

About 8 years ago I would have frowned on this being in my box.  But I’m a mom now and I get way overly excited about containers like these.  This is a Goodbyn meal and dipper set, and works great for my son’s school snack time!  I can pack him his fresh veggies and used the small Goodbyn dipper container to put the ranch or hummus in for dipping.  It’s perfect!

Suggested Retail Price: $8.00

The Mason Cookie Jar Company


I haven’t tried these just yet, but they look fun and fab.  This is a cookie mix and I only have to add butter and an egg to the mixture to make a batch of cookies.  I like simple!  I’ll let you know how it goes once they are baked!

Suggested Retail Price: $12.00

Lollia At Last Perfumed Shower Gel

Lollia At Last Perfumed Shower Gel smells ok.  It’s not my favorite scent, but it’s not bad.  It has a slightly fresh yet still perfumey scent that I can’t put my finger on.  It’s familiar, but doesn’t set off old memory tickers or anything.  As a shower gel, it works nice, but I don’t find myself reaching for it every morning.

Suggested Retail Price: $22.00

Bite Beauty Lush Fruit Lip

Have you tried Bite Beauty yet??  You need to.  They are one of my fav lip product company.  When I saw this box had a Bite Beauty item I squealed.  Seriously, that sound shouldn’t come out of a 32 year old woman.  This is a beautiful, semi sheer vibrant pink.  It’s a little sticky feeling but super glossy.

Bite Beauty made this shade to celebrate POPSUGAR Must Have’s 2 year anniversary

Suggested Retail Price: $22.00

ThinkThin Brownie Crunch High Protein Bar

This was actually an ok protein bar.  Not my favorite, but it was still tasty.  the ThinkThin Brownie Crunch High Protein Bar contains 20 grams of protein and NO sugar.  My diet calls for high protein and very little sugar.. so this is right up my alley.

Suggested Retail Price: $1.50


There were a couple items in the box I was on the fence about.  Didn’t love them but didn’t hate them, but there were several really good items that are perfect for me and my lifestyle.  The box is a little less than $40, but the item value was over $130, so that’s actually a nice tradeoff.  Every month I look forward to seeing what they offer and so far, I haven’t been disappointed!

Price: $39.95
