Neon Yellow and a Must Have Box
Subscription boxes have been around for a few years now but due mostly to mass indecisiveness, I've yet to partake. There are food-related ones, beauty, fashion, etc. and I didn't know which to try. So when POPSUGAR approached me about their Must Have boxes, I was seriously intrigued.
What makes the POPSUGAR Must Have boxes immediately stand out to me above the other box services out there is that their monthly boxes cover a little bit of all my fave things - food, fashion, beauty and a little stylish miscellany. Plus I get access to full-size products versus little samples.
Boxes are $39.95 per month (including shipping - discounts apply if you sign up for multi-months, though read their terms so you're aware of their cancellation policy) for the program.
I received the June Must Have box which had a decidely beachy laidback theme and got the following items:
Emily Griffin The One and Only
I haven't bought a honest to goodness physical book since I got my Kindle. But I totally miss the feel of cracking open a good read and flipping the pages. I've been a fan of Emily Giffin since Something Borrowed, so I'm looking forward to some light-hearted summer reading.
Sachajuan Shiny Citrus Body Lotion
Smells citrus-y and goes on my skin without feeling greasy. Plus the lotion contains Swedish oats which will help to calm irritation if you're been out in the sun and surf for too long. This lotion smells fantastic!
Turkish-T Beach Towel
It's beach towel size but balls up into nothing and is light enough to wear as a wrap or scarf. The pretty aqua and white is such a great color combo, I may have no beach to be going to in the near future but I already have plans to wear this as a fun warm weather scarf.
You Smell Lemon Wet Wipes
Not over-perfumed or chemical-smelling like some other wipes, these come individually packed for easier transport. Plus each wipe is actually big enough to be useful, thank you!
Lillies Basics Hair Ties
With the gold-tone metal accent and braiding, these ties can be worn as bracelets when not in use, and they're made out of swimsuit fabric, which means the ties don't stretch out with use. I'm wearing one as I type and literally it's not pulling my hair nor loosening up, so my pony's all snug.
One Potato Two Potato Hawaiian BBQ kettle chips
They're cooked in small batches in sunflower oil and taste delish! This item obviously was the first item opened and consumed in the box. Yum.
Native Union $15 Gift Card
These guys make really cool gadget accessories, like leather USB connectors and phone cases. I envision a new iPhone cover in my future!
Granted almost $40 a month is a bit pricey for a subscription box service but the total cost of these items individually more than makes up for the price of a box. I think it'd be a fun gift to give a friend as a little treat for yourself. And for those afraid of making a commitment, POPSUGAR's also go limited edition seasonal boxes available too.

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.
