This past summer I partnered with POPSUGAR and tried out their June Must Have Box (see here). Now I'm partnering with them again for their September box. And let me tell you guys, their September box is currently my fave to date. It's filled with an awesome array of products that will come in handy for everyday or almost everyday usage. Let's take a look inside this month's Must Have Box, shall we?
What I Got
Why haven't I invested in/owned a wide brim hat before now?! Seriously, I'm in love this hat y'all. We've officially entered into our Autumn rainy season here in the Carolinas and this hat has already come in handy during a surprise rain shower. Aside from loving the everyday functionality and the way this hat looks on me, I appreciate the fact that it has drawstrings inside the hat to allow you tighten the hat for a more custom fit.
Don't you hate getting a nail snag or realizing that your cuticles are looking a little raggedy when you're on the go? I do. Thankfully, NCLA is here to rescue our manicures with this super cute and compact MANI-ER Tool Kit that comes with pretty much all the basic tools we'll need to keep our nails looking good. I was excited to see another NCLA product in this month's Must Have Box since I enjoyed their Born On The 4th nail lacquer from my June box. And I don't know about y'all, but this read and white color combo will forever give me Baywatch vibes.
Right off the bat I loved the smell of this deep conditioning mask. It has a note of honey/nectar and reminds me of vintage perfume. Also, being a naturalista I appreciated that this product is sulfate-free, silicon-free, paraben-free, DEA-free and free of artificial colors. Those things can be harsh on and/or harmful for certain natural hair textures. The more I learn about beauty and styling products and what's good and not good for my hair and skin, I try to seek alternative brands. So, I'm grateful that this was in this month's Must Have Box. It's been a great addition to my wash routine.
If you don't care about parabens, then hopefully the fact that this deep conditioning mask reduces hair breakage by 81% after just 3 uses will be a key selling point for you. It was me because I'm all about length retention. You can check other Briogeo products below.
This the sleekest, chicest and most glam lint roller I've ever seen or owned. Seriously, it's no surprise that this lint roller won a RedDot Award. Plus, I finally have travel lint roller that I can actually carry in my purse without it sticking to everything! Flint™ is the real MVP y'all.
A lippie that's pareben-free and gluten-free? Yes, please! Before I opened my Must Have Box, I was hoping that they'd put a lip product in it since I had nail lacquer in my last one. When I saw this I knew my prayers had been answered! And the color, The Warning, is perfect! I've mentioned on here before that red is my power color.
Lately I've been wearing a lot of red/redish plum lip colors and now I get to add this shimmery red lip lacquer into my rotation. I will say that this formula is thick, which is okay if you're only putting on one or two coats. You can add more to help build up the color, but I'd just recommend putting your favorite red lipstick underneath or filling in your lips with your favorite red lip liner and doing one coat of The Warning over top.
Talk about deliciousness! I can't wait to get my hands on more of these because they just became one of my top 3 favorite snacks. Even better is the fact that everyone in the YUMMommy household can eat these because they're non-GMO, certified vegan, soy-free, dairy-free as well as gluten-free. Also, I thought it was sweet that The Gluten Free Bar was started by two brothers, Marshall and Elliott, who have food allergies like my kids do. These days I find myself drifting towards buying products that are family owned.
Overall I'm definitely loving this month's box more than my June box. All together the products in this month's Must Have Box is worth $146.98! A monthly subscription through POPSUGAR is $39.95 + FREE shipping. So, this was definitely a steal! These boxes pretty much more than pay for themselves. The products in my June box was worth over $100 as well.
If you're interested in starting a POPSUGAR Must Have Box subscription, be sure to use the coupoon code SHOP5 for $5 off your FIRST box! With each box getting better, you don't want to miss out on the chance to discover an array of new luxury products and brands. I can't wait until the October boxes roll out!
