POPSUGAR Must Have Box for August 2014

    POPSUGAR provided me with a complimentary POPSUGAR Must Have box. The opinions I have shared about the box are my own and POPSUGAR did not tell me what to say or how to say it.
POPSUGAR Must Have Box is a monthly subscription box that costs $39.95 per month. They also come out with certain special edition boxes. The fall style box right now has already sold out. The boxes include hand-selected items in beauty, fashion, home, fitness, and food and are full-size and premium items. Shipping is included. Sign up at

Paddywax Oceain Tide + Sea Salt Mini Jar Candle
It's all about the ambiance-that's why we're obsessed with this hand-poured candle. With fragrance notes of sea salt and the ocean tide, this soy-wax candle brings the beach to you. Retails $10. 

This is an adorable candle in a blue glass container with a light clean scent. If you're not much of a candle person, this would also make a great gift for someone else. I can be sensitive to some scents but this seems like a light enough scent to me that it won't irritate my senses. I just love the design as well, plus the color matches my current decor...perfect!

Bite Beauty Lush Fruit Lip 
To celebrate POPSUGAR Must Have's second birthday, Bite Beauty created this new shade just for the occasion. With noursing strawberry, coconut and avocado oils, this gloss is a super fruit smoothie for your lips. This full size gloss retails for $22. Bite Beauty is one of my absolute favorite brand and I already own a bunch of their glosses. I was super excited to see this full size product in this month's box. The color really is a color that would be flattering on many women, so I'm glad they included a more sheer pink that most can enjoy. 

Kendra Scott Elisa Necklace in Black Cat's Eye
Add some extra shimmer to your outfit with this pendant necklace perfect for everyday wear. The black oval stone and delicate chain make this piece an instant classic. Retails for $50. Personally, I'm much more of a silver person than a gold person, but because of the delicate and sophisticated style of this necklace, it's definitely something I'll be able to get good use out of. I use to be drawn more to statement neckalces, but in the last year or so, I've really been wearing small simple necklaces. I'm glad to have another great versatile pick to my collection of simple necklaces. (Some boxes contained a pair of earrings instead of a necklace). 

Goodbyn Purple Meal and Dipper Set
Keeping track of meal portions in a portable way has never been easier thanks to Goodbyn's container set. Dishwasher safte and versatile, this set is ideal for packing food on the go. This was a nice addition, especially with back to school right around the corner. I'll be using these to help me get organized and pack lunches for work. I've really been making an effort to eat out less often and so this will definitely help out with meal planning on the go. Retails $8. 

Lollia At Last Perfumed Shower Gel 
At last a shower gel that leaves you feeling clean and smelling simply amazing. Infused with shea butter and jojoba oil, this shower gel will keep your skin refreshed and smelling divine. This was packaged in a seperate plastic bag which was much appreciated as the cap did come a little loose and there was some product that had come out. I just had to rinse off the shower gel and everything was fine, but I did notice the scent was a little to perfumed for me. With such an adorable package design, this will make a great gift for me to give to a friend or family member. I'm pretty pleased that with all of the products in this box there is only one that I wasn't over the moon about. Retails $22.

thinkThin Brownie Crunch High Protein Bar
If you need a quick energy boost, look no further than these high-protein bars! Packed with 20 grams of protein and 0 grams of sugar, they're a delicious and healthy way to fuel your day. I've seen these bars at stores before and I've been curious about them, but I hadn't tried them until my POPSUGAR Must Have box. I was really glad that this delicious treat was in there. I'm always looking for healthy options to grab on the go that are going to keep me full when I don't have time for lunch. With 230 calories, this could serve as a meal replacement bar. I scanned this on Fooducate and it came up as a B rating in the bar category. I was also glad to see that they used non GMO soy. This does contain almonds, milk and soy for those with food allergies. This is definitely something I can see myself purchasing. It wasn't super sweet (there are 0 grams of sugar but there it does contain glycerin which can act as a sweetner), but it did curb my hunger and gave the feeling as if I just had a treat. 

The Mason Jar Cookie Company
Celebrate! Make any celebration even more festive with your mason jar cookie mix. Just add butter and an egg to this premeasured baking mix for a delicous treat. Retails $12. 

The total value of this box was nearly $130 and it retails at $39.95. Although this box is more expensive than some other monthly subscription boxes, I feel like the variety and quality of the products are worth it. This was truly a surprise which made my day. I came home to this from a stressful day at work and just absolutely loved getting a treat in the mail. I opened this and discovered one amazing item after the other. They certainly hit it out of the park for August 2014!
