PopSugar Must Have, June 2015

June PopSugar Must Have Box

Ever since PopSugar posted a June spoiler back in early May of the black sunglasses (pictured above), I’ve been so eager to get my hands on this box! Eager is probably an understatement. I was so pleased with this month’s selection. It’s boxes like this that remind me why I’m a subscriber in the first place!

Here’s what we all received in this month’s box:

Quay Australia – Mandate Sunglasses – $45

These wayfarer-style sunglasses with matte black frames are the perfect pair of sunglasses for summer. Not only will they go with just about ANY outfit, but they are sturdy and will can probably withstand a lot, unlike those designer aviators that can bend out of shape at any moment.

Judy Blume’s In The Unlikely Event – $27.95

I’ve been doing a lot of reading lately and have actually had my eye on this book, so it was a nice surprise to see this beautiful, brand-spanking new hardcover book sitting at the bottom of my box. It came out at the very beginning of this month and it’s been getting some rave reviews!

Pacifica – Enlighten Eye Brightening Shadow Palette – $14

It wasn’t until I carefully read the description for this eyeshadow palette by Pacific that I understood why PopSugar thought it was special enough to be put in this month’s box. This eyeshadow is coconut-water-infused. Yup. It’s also 100% vegan and cruelty-free. And it’s only $14 full price!

Yogietoes – Peacock hBand – $4

This “hBand” is both a headband and eyemask that yoga-goers will LOVE! But for those of us who don’t do yoga on the regular, this “hBand” will make a great headband! It’s made from organic cotton and a little bit of lycra for some stretch.

SPONGELLÉ – Boxed Flowers-Fleur en Boîte – $16

Holy smokes. This stuff smells AMAZING. Not just “amazing” but “AMAZING” as in I want to drop doing whatever I’m doing immediately and take my second shower for the day. It smells so dang GOOD! I’m sure you’re wonder what it even is…it’s a body wash infused buffer. And the body wash smells like papaya. The fragrance just makes me so happy!


I had to try one of these packs right after I opened the box. I couldn’t stop myself. This gummy candy is packed with B vitamins and electrolytes. Oh yeah and they taste great!

Sweet & Spark $30 Gift Card 

This was a “Special Extra” we received. Sweet and Spark sells one-of-a-kind vintage jewelry.

The total value of this month’s box: $110.95, not counting the $30 gift card.

June Birchbox

June Birchbox 2015It’s been a while since I’ve done a Birchbox post! For the past few months, I’ve been going for the curated boxes where all the samples are pre-selected and not customized based on the beauty profile. This month, I decided to skip the curated box and see what one of the customized boxes might have in store.

Lucky for me, I got some excellent goodies in the June box:

amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo | Full-size, $21

Unlike other dry shampoos that might leave white residue in your hair, the amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo uses rice starch to absorb excess oil on the hair/scalp. Safe for color-treated hair!

COOLA SPF 50 Sport – Mango | Full-size, $32

This SPF 50 mango-scented sunscreen is made with organic botanicals and is both sweat-proof and water-resistant.

La Fresh Eco Beauty® Acetone-Free Nail Polish Remover | Pack of 20, $9.99

Eco-friendly nail polish remover wipes. It’s the perfect size to keep in your purse for emergencies or to carry with you when traveling.

Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner | Full-size, $11

This waterproof eyeliner is blendable, goes on smoothly, and stays all day.

Shiseido Ibuki Refining Moisturizer | Full-size, $45

Shiseido is a world-renowned cosmetic brand, so I was really excited to receive a sample of their new Ibuki Refining Moisturizer. It hydrates skin while evening out skin tone and reducing the appearance of blemishes and pores. Score!

*BONUS* SARAHPOTEMPA Darby Clip | Set of 2 or 4, $9.99 – $16

This clip is used for sectioning and styling hair. Perfect for when you need to keep hair in place while blow drying, curling, or flat-ironing!

I can’t wait to try out all of these products! A few of these will definitely be used on my summer trips!
