POPSUGAR sent me this Must Have Box to try, all opinions are my own. No monetary compensation has been provided. Thank you for supporting brands that support A Good Hue.
A couple week's ago, a box of cheer in the form of this month's POPSUGAR Must Have box arrived on my doorstep! This month's theme is based around giving, minimalism and of course holiday festivity.
The POPSUGAR Must Have Box is a lifestyle subscription box curated by the POPSUGAR editors that includes beauty, fashion, fitness, food, even home items. Every month, a new box is released containing new items (full-sized!) from these categories. Read more to find out what's in this month's POPSUGAR Must Have box, plus a coupon code to save on your first box!
My favorites from the December box has to be these chic porcelain jewelry dishes- a catchall tray ($44 value) and ring dish ($23 value) from Odeme. I love the minimalist design, clean lines and the sizes are perfect for displaying on a dresser, vanity or desk. They'll make a chic addition to my desk for sure!
The box also contained the Dessange Top Coat Serum ($12 value), which is safe for color-treated hair. The serum helps to add shine to hair (and tame pesky fly-aways). I have tried Dessange hair products before (shampoo and conditioner) and wasn't a fan but this serum seems to be promising. We'll have to see how it performs in the long-run.
I am a bit more smitten with the other beauty inclusion in the box-- this gorgeous Winky Lux Lip Pill in Bunny ($14 value), which is a pretty cranberry-pink red lip color. The color is pigmented and applies smoothly and the packaging is SUPER cute. I do have a love-hate relationship with the lipstick component- I love the bullet shape but hate that I can't stand it upright. I've never tried, let along heard of, Winky Lux and love discovering new brands and products, which the POPSUGAR Must Have box has been good at providing lately. All the products are cruelty-free, paraben-free and are touted as being sustainably made. I would love to try more from the brand!
Nothing says holiday spirit like a freshly baked batch of chocolate chip cookies so you know I was excited to find the Sisters’ Gourmet Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix ($7 value) in the box! This super cute jar contains all the ingredients you need to make about a dozen cookies, you just need to add butter, an egg, and vanilla. Easy baking! I haven't mixed them up but have plans to this New Year's weekend... I can't wait to try these!
Another one of my favorites in this month's box is the BaubleBar Snowfall Pendant ($28 value). I recently wore it with a sweater and it was the perfect accessory to wear and add a little personality. The chain length is approx. 28" long and has a silver finish. While I typically prefer gold, the silver is a nice reprieve and gives a different look to my outfits. I like it! This piece is exclusive to POPSUGAR so you'll only find it at the POPSUGAR Must Have Boutique! There was also a 20% off coupon for BaubleBar included as well (yes!).
Tip: If you want to add just a minimal touch of sparkle to your holiday look, try out some cute sparkly hair pins, such as the Mane Message Date Night Bobby Pins ($10 value). The pins come in a set of three bobby pins: Antique Gold Glitter, Peach Enamel & Coal Glitter. Mane Message offers a ton of super cute hair accessories and have some fab styling ideas as well. There is also an included 20% off coupon for the next order.
The December box is valued at about $138, making the $39.95 price tag so worth it. Even though holiday gift season has ended, it's still good to keep this box subscription in mind for birthday gifts, graduation, or just-because. Or you know, for yourself :P You can order the next Must Have box and be sure to use code SHOP5 to score $5 off your FIRST Must Have Box! You can read more of my POPSUGAR Must Have Box reviews here.
