I myself was confused by POPSUGAR Select. We are all so used to makeup boxes that I didn’t understand that this was a lifestyle box, not a makeup box! Each month you receive an item from the following categories: Must Have Fashion, Must Have Beauty, Must Have Fashion, Must Have Home, Must Have Fitness and Must Have Food.
For my March Box I received:
- Brokedown Blue Ikat Scarf (Must Have Fashion)
- Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum (Must Have Beauty)
- Dogeared Lucky Horseshoe Make a Wish Necklace (Must Have Fashion)
- BaubleBar Elephant Ring Tree (Must Have Home)
- ActiveForever Fusion Exercise Ball (Must Have Fitness)
- Harvest Snaps Snapea Crisps (Must Have Food)
- Nature's Bakery All Natural Stone Ground Whole Wheat Strawberry Fig Bars (Special Extra)
My thoughts on each:
Brokedown Blue Ikat Scarf – This was the big ticket item of the box. Initially I wasn’t that excited about it, as I don’t wear scarves! I thought about giving it away, until I played with it and fell in love with how soft it is. If any of you are petite and well endowed, I would love to hear how you like to wear scarves!
Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum – I have heard good things about Jurlique but my skin is out of control right now and I don’t know what it was that broke me out, so I will not be introducing any new skincare into my routine at this time.
Dogeared Lucky Horseshoe Make a Wish Necklace – I didn’t know what to think about this necklace, but I put it on for my birthday, made my wish, and I haven’t wanted to take it off since! Which is weird, because I have trouble wearing most necklaces. Either they get tangled in my hair or I feel like it’s choking me. I have none of those problems with this necklace! When it breaks, my wish is supposed to come true! And as much as I would like that to happen, I want to keep wearing this necklace!
BaubleBar Elephant Ring Tree – I think this is adorable. Since I work retail and have a very physical job, I do not wear jewelry to work. Hopefully I can put this to good use some day, but for now he will sit on my Expedit and keep me company.
ActiveForever Fusion Exercise Ball – The ball arrived deflated. It was supposed to come with a straw to blow it up but I couldn’t find it! I managed to inflate it the old fashion way. Not really sure if I will use it as it’s intended (you can follow the idea’s in the post on POPSUGAR’s blog) but it makes a great dodgeball!
Harvest Snaps Snapea Crisps – I ignored these until today. They sat, unwanted and unloved, in the corner of my room. I finally opened them today AND ATE THE WHOLE BAG. I will definitely be buying more this weekend!
Nature's Bakery All Natural Stone Ground Whole Wheat Strawberry Fig Bars – I am glad this was considered an extra because I don’t like figs. I tried it, just to make sure. And I STILL don’t like figs!
I also received discount codes for Jurlique (15%), Baublebar (20%) and Dogeared (20%).
Overall, I am very happy with this box and would not have minded paying $39.99 for it! My favorite items (if you can’t tell) are the scarf, the Make a Wish Necklace and the Harvest Snaps.
What do you think of the idea of a lifestyle box? Have you ever purchased one from POPSUGAR?
