I'm a bit late to the party on this one but here is the August POPSUGAR Must Have Box. This is the 1 year anniversary box for Must Have and I have to say I'm not very impressed with it, this could very well be my least favorite Must Have Box to date.
This box has a sort of a back to school theme which is very appropriate for the month of August but some of the items this month were lacking in quality and that is where my disappointment lies with this.
Gorjana & Griffin | Open Circle Necklace MSRP $65.00
This is the Must Have Anniversary "gift" and I do like this piece, it's very dainty and lightweight. It has a shorter chain on it and I think it will go well with my other Gorjana & Griffin pieces.
Bentgo | Stack-able Lunch Box MSRP $14.99
This is a pretty cool little invention, it comes with two compartments and utensils. The bottom has a divider so there are two spots for different types of food while the top has no divider. It is dishwasher, freezer, and microwave safe however you can only put it in the microwave for up to 3 mins. I do not recommend putting any type of plastic in the microwave but that is info for another post. It's also important to note that this is not leak-proof. The gray band does keep it together tightly but it would for sure leak if you put any liquids in it. While I like this I'm not sure how useful this will be for me.
Lulah | Body Wash in Vanilla Orchid MSRP $11.25
This smells really really good! I'm not real sure I will be able to use this though because it has a coconut ingredient in it, I will either trade this or end up testing a small spot on my skin to see if I have a reaction. Sigh being sensitive to coconut is the worst because they are putting it in everything now a days.
May Designs | Weekly Agenda Notebook MSRP $17.00
This is really cute and one item I will for sure get some use out of. I think I will use it to help plan out blog posts and what not.
Lunares | Apple Bowl *MSRP estimate $20.00
This bowl is cute however the quality of this bowl is highly disappointing. The only place on the Lunares website that I could find this bowl was in a $149.00 seven piece set. Simply breaking it down each piece would be around $20.00, I would not pay that much for this bowl or any of it's coordinating pieces because the quality is laughable. The bowl I received has flaws in the paint, dents in the silver, and scratches around the back that are noticeable in person. I would have been satisfied with this item but because of it's flaws it is my second to least favorite item in this box.
Dermalogica | Precleanse and Special Cleansing Gel MSRP $19.50
These are interesting the precleanse is used to melt away makeup and impurities making the special cleansing gel more effective. The special cleansing gel is soap free claims to remove impurities without upsetting the skins natural moisture balance. I'm looking forward to giving these a try.
Naturebox | Granny Smith Apples MSRP $3.99
Naturebox is another subscription box company that offers healthy snacks each month. I'm all for healthy foods but these apple are gross. The texture is chewy and tough and they have a strange woody smell mixed with the natural apple scent. I would rather just eat a non dehydrated apple this is my least favorite product in this box.
The MSRP total of this box is $151.73 and I think that the box is a good value but this is one of my least favorite boxes that I have received from POPSUGAR Must Have. The quality of the items I feel just isn't there. I would also like to see silver jewelry the next time they send out some, to date all the jewelry items that they have sent out have been gold toned of some kind. I will still stick with POPSUGAR because they are my favorite subscription box as of late but I hope that they are more selective for the next box.
What do you think of this months Must Have Box?
