January 2017 POPSUGAR Must Have Box Reveal

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by POPSUGAR Beauty and contains affiliate links.  I received a POPSUGAR Must Have Box to facilitate this review.  All opinions expressed are my own.  Thank you for supporting the brands that support YUMMommy!

Last year I had so much fun trying out POPSUGAR's Must Have Box subscription service.  I'm honored and delighted to have been selected to partner with them again this year.  You can see my past Must Have Box reveals here, here and here.  The contents of each Must Have Box got better and better and I'm sure this year's boxes will do the same.  January's box came filled with 6 fresh and new essentials plus a special extra that focus on detoxing, revitalization and healthy living.

What I Got

I can't even put into words how amazing this candle smells!  When I opened my Must Have Box, it smelled like I was opening the door to a tropical beach paradise.  The coconut, star fruit and hibiscus give the candle a sweet smell, but the beach wood stops it from being too overpowering.  I love that this is made from soy wax, which is much healthier because it has no toxins, carcinogens, pollutants and will last almost twice as long as a traditional candle.  I am so grateful for this piece of the beach as we continue through the winter season.

I'm looking forward to finally getting myself to a hot yoga class and trying out my eQua yoga mat towel.  If I'm being honest, I'll admit that I used this towel for my regular floor workout because well, I'm a sweater.  I don't have the privilege of being one of those girls who looks cute working out.  When I'm beasting it out, I sweat.  HARD!  Not only is this split microfiber towel super absorbent, it's also incredibly soft.

Long gone are the days when you need to shell out hundreds on top of hundreds of dollars to get spa treatments.  Thanks to modern technology and advances in beauty products, we can do create spas right in our bathrooms.  This resurfacing face peel from Goldfaden MD is perfect for removing dead skin and given your face an even, smooth texture.  I would recommend that if you dry skin, that you maybe limit your peels to once a week or even once every other week and make sure to moisture afterwards with a nice heavy/thick moisturizer.

This stationery set doubles as desk calendar and notepad.  How cool is that?!  I love the dual functionality of this set.  You guys know that I'm all about recycling and reusing.  I'm also very into floral patterns and prints.  The calendar for each month comes in a different floral pattern and color.  This set does come with a stand that of course can be reused as well once all of the notecards and calendars have been used up.

It's a struggle being a naturalista!  Like most women of color with natural/unprocessed hair, my biggest hair struggle is battling frizz, especially on Wash Day.  Therefore, I am super excited to finally have a towel that is specifically designed for hair and to help cut down on frizz and flyaways.  I love that this hair wrap towel is big, but still the perfect size to fit in your suitcase or carry on bag without taking up a ton of valuable space.  I don't have to worry about fighting to fit my big afro under this hair towel!

Motivational and inspirational sticky notes!  How genius is this idea?!  Moo takes her lunch to school and while I try to make sure I put a little handwritten sticky note in her lunchbox day to day, there are just some mornings when we're low on time.  These cute stickies will definitely come in handy on those mornings when we're rushing and I don't have time to hand write her a note.

I squealed with joy when I saw this Dean & Deluca Peppermint Loose Tea Leaves.  1- I love Dean & Deluca!  The Mr actually got me a set of Dean & Deluca mugs one Christmas.  2- I love peppermint tea!  It's like having a piece of Christmas year round.  And the menthol aroma helps to put you in a relaxing/soothing mood.  Did I mention peppermint tea is good for digestive track? (In moderation of course.)

Overall it looks like POPSUGAR is off to a great start.  The products featured in January's box totaled out to $191.  Considering a POPSUGAR Must Have Box subscription is only $39.95, this was definitely a steal!

I can't wait to see what will be in February's Must Have Box.  And with Valentine's Day right around the corner there's still time treat yourself to Must Have Box subscription or drop hints for the lucky guy in your life to snag you one.  You use promo code SHOP5 to save $5 off your first box.

What is your favorite way to detox or revitalize?
