These past few weeks have been pretty lighthearted from me, y’all. (I was going to say ladies, but I’m not sure if that’s entirely true…?) There is more than enough heaviness going on in our nation’s headlines and your social media newsfeed to go around. But just so you know, it does weigh on my heart, and I will be sharing some about that in a future post.
Anyway, for now, another lighter post! PopSugar sent me another of their Must Have Boxes, which is a monthly lifestyle subscription box. These boxes always contain something for your household, a beauty product, a fashion product, and a food item, among other things. They always have a theme, and this one is all about gearing up to have a healthy and fresh new year. Here is my review of what’s inside:
Manuka eQua Mat Towel in Playa (value $38)
This is a towel to protect your yoga mat from sweat and you from slipping. It is quick-drying, which again, makes it a great companion for the gym. I haven’t tried this yet, but since I’m a yoga fan, I’m looking forward to it.
Daily Concepts Your Hair Wrap Towel (value $18)
So, I just had a hard time using this turban-like towel. While I might be missing the simple trick to it, I had a hard time knotting my hair in it. Therefore, this might be a giveaway from me to someone who better knows how to use it.
Dean & Deluca Peppermint Loose Leaf Tea (value $10.75)
Such a delicious tea! I love that you can drink it hot or cold, because I made a cup hot, but like any mom, didn’t make it in time to actually enjoy it that way. Fortunately, it actually tastes great cold! Win win.
Sourcebooks, Inc. Instant Happy Notes (value $8.99)
What’s not to love about a sticky note with a sweet sentiment? This is something you can leave around the house, pack in a lunch box, and even stick on a public restroom mirror to encourage someone you don’t know.
Goldfaden MD Fresh A Peel Multi Acid Resurfacing Peel (value $85)
Whaaaat? An $85 skin peel? Since I so would not spend that typically, it made me super curious about how this natural product would work. It claims to remove dead skin cells and leave your skin softer and brighter, with a refreshingly cool feel to it. For me, with the first try, my skin feels tighter and softer. However, it will take time to see how it works in the long run.
May Designs Desk Calendar and Notepad (value $25)
May Designs has just the most gorgeous prints and patterns for their stationary, in every color. This calendar is just as pretty as it is practical. It comes with a stand, and the cards can be used to send a pretty note after the month is over.
Glade No3 Free – Coconut and Beach Woods Candle (value $4.99)
When you open the box, this is the first thing you smell. It’s rather like a tropical vacation in a candle – seriously. Love the fresh and calming scent, and also the packaging makes it look like it’s from a boutique!
So which products from this box would you love to try? To save $5 off your first box, use the code “SHOP5” when singing up on this page.
