Pop Sugar: Must Have August 20146:12 PM
A little late with my review of the August Pop Sugar Must Have Box but I did get the chance to use every single item in it and I have to say that not one item in the August box disappointed me. I'll be reviewing my September box down the road since it just arrived today.
|Think Thin High Protein Bar |
Note: I cut this bar in half for editorial purposes.
Ok, so funny story with this. My eldest had just come home from a run and I had promised her the bar after she finished her shower. I was in the middle of taking pictures for this blog and so I placed the plate with the protein bar on my desk then went upstairs to let her know I was done taking pictures so she could have it. I come back downstairs and the plate and bar are gone. Turns out my eldest son took the bar then took one bite out of it, thinking it was some yummy candy bar, and promptly spit it out into the trashcan. Neither her nor I got to taste it since my son threw the remaining bar away.
Next day I sent her to Stop & Shop (local grocery store) since it turns out that S&S sells it. She bought the exact same bar for $2.49 (I think she said it was $2.49 there) and finally had the chance to try it. Turns out she LOVED the protein bar. I did take a nibble and didn't care for it since I personally found it was bitter due to it being dark chocolate. It's a pass for me but a yum for her and has since bought a few more to have after her daily runs.
|Goodbyn Small Meal Box |
I passed this along to my eldest daughter as well since she works two jobs working at least 12 hours a day so she's crazy busy with little time to stop and buy herself a lunch. The little dipper container is the perfect size for a little salad dressing or dip. She fills her small meal box with some fruit and veggies. It's great for a small meal but if you need something larger for yourself then skip this since it's about the size of a small sandwich. Great for kids or those watching their weight.
|Lollia At Last Perfumed Shower Gel |
I'm in love with this shower gel, hate the price but love the gel. Unfortunately I'm not the only one who loved this shower gel as my daughters discovered it in the shower and within a week I was out. I personally had three uses out of it and let me tell you there was a "discussion" by me to them about using my stuff up yet again. LOL Man, I REALLY liked that shower gel scent too!
|PaddyWax Ocean Sea Salt Candle |
I've been interchanging this candle with a peony candle from a past Pop Sugar box, a hemp candle from Birchbox and a few Yankee Candles over the last couple of months. It's a subtle scent that you really don't notice until you turn the candle off or the wax warmer off and allow the candle to cool. I love the mason jar it came in and plan on reusing it down the road. Total score with me and I'd love to see more scent varieties sent out.
|Danielle Gold Earrings in Slate |
No my style however I've set these aside to give to one of my relatives at Christmas.
|Bite Beauty Lush Fruit Lip Gloss in Popsugar |
I've actually used this lip gloss a couple of times and found it to not only smell amazing but also found that it was a bit moisturizing. Unfortunately it was not long lasting on my lips and I had to reapply the color within an hour. Still, I liked it and will continue to use it unless Kat gets her hands on it and this "disappears" from my stash.
|The Mason Jar Company Cookie Mix in a Soft Jar Pouch |
Retail: $ 12.99
The day after my box originally arrived we made these cookies. I personally didn't care for the cookies however my kids LOVED these cookies.
Tip: Add room temp butter and 1 tsp of vanilla extract and under cook the cookies by one to two minutes.
Overall impressions: I loved my August box and the retail value was $134.48 and it was only $39.95! My September box just arrived today so I'll try to get the review up within the next few days.
