Popsugar: April

So I realized that I never did a review of my Popsugar Must Have Box for April.  I was not liking my Birchbox and a reader suggested that I try a Popsugar box.  This box is $35 a month, which is quite a bit more than $10 for Birchbox.  The big difference is that the products in this box are full-size, not sample size.

1. Tatcha Petal Fresh Evening Aburatorigami Beauty Papers
Description: These are blotting papers that won't mess up your make-up or dry out your face.
Price: $15.00 for 40 sheets
Review:  I have oily skin that really gets shiny during the more humid months.  These are easy to use, just take one out, blot and throw away.  They are also in a very convenient size.  I can put them in my purse or in a clutch.  They are also frangrance-free which we all know is very awesome for me.

2. Shashi New Nugget Bracelet
Description: It's a bracelet that comes in three shades: cobalt, turquoise, and gray.
Price: $30 for one
Review: This bracelet is very cute and very stackable.  I've worn it stacked with my other bracelets and solo with just my watch.  I don't think this is something I would have ever purchased on my own, but I do really like it and I'm glad it came in the box.

3. Kai Perfume Oil
Description: A perfume oil with the light, fresh smell of gardenia and white exotic flowers
Price: $48
Review: A little goes a long way.  Plus, this is an oil, so it rolls on.  When I first put it on, it smells kind of like a forest.  Which, in my opinion is what all 'all-natural' products smell like.  However, as the day progresses the scent changes to a sweeter smell.  I don't know if this has to do with body heat or what, but I absolutely love it.  So much so that I will buy this when I run out.  That's saying a lot, because you know how much I hate trying new perfumes.

4. Alter Eco Dark Quinoa Chocolate
Description: Delicious chocolate with the perfect amount of crunch, it's also 100% Organic & Fair Trade Certified
Price: $3.99
Review: This is delicious.  The description is right, the quinoa provides the perfect amount of crunch.  It's dark chocolate, so one little square is enough to satiate my sweet tooth.  And trust me, I have quite the sweet tooth.

5. The Green Garmento Four-In-One Reusable Dry-Cleaning Bag
Description: This eco-friendly option eliminates the need for those single-use plastic bags you get from your dry cleaner.  It serves as a hamper, a duffel to bring clothes to the dry cleaner and a garment bag.  The fourth option is to use as a garment bag when traveling.
Price: $9.99
Review: This is a pretty cool product.  The husband and I regularly take clothes to the cleaners, so this bag works perfect for us.  I will say the bright pink "popsugar" on the side is one downside to convincing my husband to take/pick up the dry cleaning, though.  We use the bag as a hamper for our clothes that need dry cleaning, we use it as a duffel to take our clothes to the cleaners, and then we get it back with all our clean clothes in it, sans plastic wrap.

There you have it.  I would have paid $106.98 for all these products.  Are you interested in the Popsugar Must Have Box?  Sign up here.

  1. I'm really intrigued by that chocolate. What an interesting combo!

    1. It's really good. I had a little last night and I love the 'crunch' paired with the dark chocolate. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
