Popsugar: July

Holy crap can you believe it is August?  This summer seriously just flew on by.  Unfortunately August brings the hottest temperatures and I'm really starting to feel it in Dallas.  So let's step back into July for a second while I review the Popsugar Must Have July box.  What is the Popsugar Must Have box?  It's a monthly subscription box that is $35/mo.  Get more details HERE.  Let me just say that June is still the best box I have received thus far.  That being said, I still really enjoyed the July box.

Mighty Leaf Iced Tea
Description:  A box of four lightly sweet iced tea pouches.
Price: $6.25 for a box of 4 pouches
Review:  I love flavored iced tea, so this was right up my alley.  We've made two pouches so far and it is very good.  I will say that my love for sweet tea is so overpowering that I have to add just a little more sweetener to my glass.  The husband loves it as is, though.

Supergoop SPF 30 Anti-Aging City Sunscreen Serum
Description:  A super lightweight serum that counteracts the signs of aging.  It protects and primes skin.  It hydrates and moisturizes and is free of parabens and fragrances.
Price: $42
Review:  I absolutely love this product.  It really is very lightweight and moisturizing.  Since I have combination/oily skin I use this in place of my moisturizer and the SPF 30 is so, so important to have for the summer.  It also keeps me less oily during the day.  It is pretty pricey, but I may just have to splurge and get this once my bottle is empty.  I like it that much.

BaubleBar Rose Double Curb Chain
Description:  Rose gold is so on trend right now.  This necklace can dress up a t-shirt or be worn with a dress for a night out.
Price: I can't find this particular piece on their website.  A similar piece is priced at $42.
Review:  This is my first rose gold piece.  I do like rose gold, but I'm not the best at styling it.  I'm getting used to it.  This box also included a coupon code for BaubleBar, so I may use it to buy some rose gold earrings.

HannahMax Dark Chocolate Crunchy Cookie Chips
Description:  All natural, crunchy cookie chips.  Free of trans fat, artificial flavors and colors, preservatives and GMOs.
Price: $23.96 for a 4 pack
Review:  Hmm.  I didn't like these.  It really might have been because they are dark chocolate chocolate chip cookie chips and I'm not a fan of dark chocolate.  They do have other flavors and I probably would eat an entire bag of the cinnamon sugar in one sitting.  I did like the crunch of the cookie.

Description:  Nail polish that is free of DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde and Camphor.  It's also never tested on animals.
Price: $16.00
Review:  I received the pastel lavender color.  Pastels are very much on trend right now, but they do not really work with my skin tone.  I will probably wear this on my toes, but it's just too much for my hands.

Tovolo King Cube Ice Tray
Description:  An ice tray that makes two-inch cubes which melt slower.
Price: About $8.95
Review:  I saw this tray and thought to myself, "Awesome!  Now I can make mini popsicles."  The husband saw this tray and said, "Can I have it!?"  Apparently two-inch ice cubes are perfect in a glass of scotch.  So, he is using them with his scotch.  We are also using them in our peach tea, listed above.

Is anyone getting the Limited Edition Fall box?  I'm very tempted.
