POPSUGAR Must Have June 2016 Box Review plus Gift with Purchase

It’s not a good sign when I receive a box and leave it unopened for several days. I don’t have enough restraint to do that for all the boxes that I’m excited for! But unfortunately, this month’s POPSUGAR Must Have box was completely forgotten after I picked it up from the post office. I peeked at spoilers (of course) and I knew what was in it, and found the contents rather disappointing. Not sure what’s up, since last month’s box wasn’t up my alley either. And trust me, I usually adore my POPSUGAR boxes. Hopefully this is just a temporary lull and July will be perfect for me.

POPSUGAR Must Have is a subscription service that sends a variety of items for women that are curated by the POPSUGAR editors. Items typically include food, beauty, home, among other miscellaneous things. Each month is $39.99/month, but you can use the code REFER5 to get $5 off your first month. Or, you can use the gift with purchase code at the bottom of this post.

I really do like this new layout for all the cards though! It feels really posh.

I appreciate the red, white, and blue color coordination going on with this box! It was so visually appealing upon opening.

Pacifica Underarm Deodorant Wipes | $9.00
I know and like the Pacifica brand, but have never seen these before so it’s nice to get to try it. These are vegan, aluminum-free, and paraben-free. It smells like coconut oil, which isn’t my favorite scent but it sure beats sweaty armpits! Houston’s humidity is through the roof right now, so I will definitely use these. I wish they had some antiperspirant in them though, since that would be so much more useful!

NCLA Born on the 4th Nail Lacquer | $16.00
While I love this patriotic and fun sparkly polish, I know I’ll never use this whole bottle. But it definitely feels so festive and I’ll be rocking it this summer! Very happy that POPSUGAR sent it in the June box though, giving ample time to use it in time for July 4th. I’ve tried NCLA before and found the formula to be decent. It’s easy to apply and dries beautifully, but it does seem to chip a little faster than I would like. Maybe this glitter one will be more sturdy though!

Hat Attack Neutral Diamonds Printed Sarong | $58.00
I didn’t take my sarong out of the packaging because I’ll be gifting it, but on the left is the picture that POPSUGAR shared and on the right is a close up shot of the pattern. It’s a really cute sarong but I have lots of swim coverups right now. My friend’s birthday is coming up and I know she would adore this. I’m confident in the quality since I own 2 Hat Attack products that have held up really well over time.

Sister of Los Angeles “Cheers” Gold Bottle Opener | $12.00
Gorgeous! I wish I needed another bottle opener because it’s a great quality piece and so very beautiful. It will go in the gift pile, maybe paired with some craft beers for a casual housewarming gift.

POPSUGAR Must Have June 2016 Box Review plus Gift with Purchase

Wild and Wolf Ridley’s Games Room “Who Am I?” Quiz | $12.95
Kudos for the lovely packaging and striking print! This game isn’t really for me (trust me, I would be so bad at it…) so it’ll go in the gift pile. I appreciate the inclusion of a game item though, since it feels more unique than the usual stuff that comes in subscription boxes.

POPSUGAR Must Have June 2016 Box Review plus Gift with Purchase

Knock Knock Are You Ready (For Your Close-Up?) Compact | $10.00
My least favorite item in the box. I hate to be so negative, but I think this is a really clunky design that just doesn’t work for me. It also feels kind of flimsy and the plastic surface will scratch easily. To me, it resembles a pill container or something you could buy for really cheap at a gift shop for a child or something. Disappointed because I love Knock Knock products–they have such clever things!

POPSUGAR Must Have June 2016 Box Review plus Gift with Purchase

On the inside it says “For Your Close-Up?”

POPSUGAR Must Have June 2016 Box Review plus Gift with Purchase

Pressels Sriracha | $1.29
Really good! I love sriracha (who doesn’t???) so this is a no brainer. The fact that it’s baked and has less fat than regular potato chips is also a win. This is a really tiny bag, which I should probably be grateful for…but I’m left wanting more. I would have loved a huge bag of this! I miss the old days when POPSUGAR would send full sized snack products. I still remember the gigantic bag of popcorn!

POPSUGAR Must Have June 2016 Box Review plus Gift with Purchase

Overall, the value is $119.24 but the box feels really light. It feels like it’s missing a luxe product or something. Most of the value comes from smaller $12-$16 items so it kind of feels like lots of filler.

I’m not saying this is a bad box. It just wasn’t very exciting for me. I’ll use some of the products and be able to gift the others, but none of them feel “must have” and I’m not wowed by anything. And I’m sure you’ve noticed that it’s a short review. I just didn’t have that much to say about the products this month. Underarm wipes and nail polish are practical and will get used but there’s really not very much to say about them besides “they’re practical and will get used”.

This is the second month in a row that I’ve gotten boxes that aren’t really for me, but I’ve been a subscriber for 2 years now and have loved most of the shipments. I have high hopes for July and can’t wait to see what kind of summer staples they’ll be sending.

If you want to purchase a June box, you can get a free Stowaway Cosmetics Creme Lipstick Trio (a $30 value) with the code PINK.

Birchbox June 2016 Review

As most of you probably know by now, Birchbox is implementing some significant changes to their beloved points program that will become effective in July. One of my favorite things about Birchbox was their amazing point system, in which you could earn at least 50 points from each box by reviewing each sample. 100 points is equivalent to a $10 credit in the shop, so you pretty much get your box for half price if you review all your samples and take advantage of the shop. Starting on July 11th, subscribers will only be allowed to review 5 samples per subscription (50 points). For the entire length of the subscription! Obviously, this is a major change and sort of changes the value of the box.

In a stroke of perfect timing, this is actually the last box of my annual subscription. I was planning to purchase another year right before the news of the change came out, and now I don’t think I will. Even though I love Birchbox and have been with them for years, I just don’t think the samples that I receive from them are worth the $10 every month. Some months are amazing, but other months are lackluster. Without the points, I will take my $10 and try some other beauty boxes that I have heard great things about.

Birchbox June 2016 Review

This last box of mine is really going out of with a bang. Even though I knew all the contents, I was impressed with the products and the fact that two items were full sized! If every box that Birchbox sent could be like this one, I would still be subscribed.

Birchbox June 2016 Review

Davines Authentic Cleansing Nectar Hair/Body | $9.13
I got the curated box mostly for this Davines product. I love Davines and their products work really well with my hair. They also always smell totally amazing! This is an oil based shampoo so it doesn’t strip your hair of moisture. It feels very similar to baby shampoo, in my opinion! And a little goes a long way. I accidentally poured out way too much on my first application and felt like I had to rinse forever to get rid of the suds. The second time I used a tiny bit and loved how easy it was to rinse out and how my hair felt like it didn’t even need conditioner. I would consider repurchasing the full size as a treat to myself! Bonus points for adorable packaging.

Birchbox June 2016 Review

Davines Authentic Moisturizing Balm | $2.13
Always happy to get the matching conditioner to the shampoo! But I think I say this every time, I wish the sizes were reversed! I can’t be the only girl who uses way more conditioner than shampoo, right? This is sort of an odd product, since it’s a makeup remover, a body lotion, and a hair conditioner all in one. I half-heartedly tried it as a makeup remover and really didn’t like the results, but it did work as a conditioner and a shaving cream for my legs. Not really sure how I feel about this, since I would rather have an excellent conditioner and an excellent shaving cream and an excellent makeup remover as 3 different products, instead of 1 product that kind of does all 3 not that well. Hope that made sense.

Birchbox June 2016 Review

Air Repair Complexion Boosting Moisturizer | $2.52
This is the only new brand in the box for me. Great timing though, since I’m about to take a long flight next week and could use a great moisturizer! It’s a small tube so I’m saving the bulk of it for my trip, but I did use a tiny pea-sized amount just to see what it felt like, and I really like it. It goes on silky smooth and absorbs easily. Barely any fragrance at all, and isn’t heavy or greasy. Hope to have great results with the full sample!

Birchbox June 2016 Review

NUXE Reve de Miel Facial Cleansing and Make-Up Removing Gel | $1.43
I wanted to like this, but the scent was just so overpowering! I couldn’t even really try it, since I needed it off my face right away. It’s a shame, since I know NUXE makes great products. Their masks are phenomenal! But this was just a total perfume bomb.

Birchbox June 2016 Review

The Beauty Crop PBJ Smoothie Stick in Raisin the Roof | $14.95
I definitely wasn’t expecting this to be full sized, but it is! Wish the color were a little richer and less pale, since it makes my skin look kind of washed out. I might try to use this in the winter, when I’m less tan. Or I might gift it. Pale skinned ladies might want to check this color out. My friend (who is practically Casper the Ghost) got the curated box as well and already asked me if she can have this.

Birchbox June 2016 Review

LOC One and Done Shadow Stick in Haute Cocoa | $10.00
I’ve tried these before and the formula is surprisingly good–especially considering the price range. The shadow stays put all day and is really easy to apply. The creamy colors blend beautifully and I love that it comes in a great range of neutrals. This is another full sized product, by the way! I’m happy to have received the Haute Cocoa color, which is a rich brown with lots of shimmer. When I’m not in the mood for struggling with eyeliner, this is a great alternative.

Birchbox June 2016 Review

Overall, great box. The value is definitely there, at $40.16! I found a great new moisturizer that I have high hopes for and got two full sized products, all for only $10. With that being said, I think as someone who has been subscribed to Birchbox for a while, the repetition gets a little old. For instance: I’ve received LOC (a Birchbox brand) products before, I’ve also received PBJ Smoothie Sticks before, and Davines is a brand that is sent out over and over again. Luckily I really like Davines, but if you aren’t a fan I imagine it gets annoying really quickly. One of the big reasons why I think Birchbox isn’t always worth the $10 a month is because of the brand selection. I think anyone who subscribes to Birchbox has a stockpile of Harvey Prince, Parlor, and Whish products that are still waiting to be used.

It’s not like I think I should constantly be getting boxes with a $40 value. But what I am saying is that the original concept of discovering new brands and products has lost its appeal to me because I keep seeing the same things over and over again. Back when the points system was in place, I could at least use the $5 from each box to purchase products from the shop that I did like, and that made the subscription much more worthwhile. With the points gone, I would rather spend my $10 on full sized purchases or a different subscription box that features more brands that I want.

And finally, I just want to say that I still think Birchbox is a great subscription box. It’s sort of the perfect way to “get started” with beauty boxes, since their customer service is top notch, they consistently send out staple beauty items, and have some of the cutest packaging ever. I would love to continue gifting this one to my friends who are new to the beauty world.

Peaches and Petals June 2016 Review plus Promo Codes

It’s been a pretty busy couple of weeks over here since I have been packing and getting ready to move by the end of the month. One downside to subscription boxes? When you move you have to remember to change so many addresses! Hopefully I’ve gotten them all, but I guess we’ll see when next month rolls around if I’ve forgotten anything. Anyways, up for review today is my Peaches and Petals June box.

Peaches and Petals is a monthly subscription service that sends out vintage-modern items and beauty goods. For $19.99 a month (includes shipping), you’ll receive a mix of jewelry, fashion accessories, lifestyle goods, and beauty samples. Get 50% off your first box (bringing the price down to just $10!) with promo code PEACH-SAVE50. If that doesn’t work, you can try PEACH-SAVE25 and PEACH-SAVE10 for 25% off and 10% off, respectively. Each code can only be used a set number of times, so if the 50% off isn’t working for you try the other two. Right now they’re no longer selling this June box, so your first month will be July.

They also have a gift with purchase promo code going on: use PEACHHAMMOCK to get a free parachute hammock in your first box! Expires July 15th.

Now onto the review.

Peaches and Petals June 2016 Review plus Promo Codes

Each month has a theme, and June’s is Under the Boardwalk. I’ve found Peaches and Petals to have interesting themes each month that are well curated. The items usually correspond really well with the theme and I’ve gotten some items from this box that I rarely see in subscription boxes–like a coloring book and ceramic tasting spoons!

Peaches and Petals June 2016 Review plus Promo Codes

Yonala Summer Swimsuit Cover Up | $8.89
Really love this item! On the left is the picture pulled from the Amazon site, and on the right is a close up of the pattern and fabric. This seems to be the summer of cover ups! POPSUGAR, Rachel Zoe, and even the POPSUGAR Limited Edition CFDA box all had cover ups in them. The good news is that none of them are alike, so if you subscribed to all 4 boxes you still have 4 totally different looks. I love the pattern of this one and the easy styling options. It’s thin and easy to pack, and doesn’t wrinkle easily. Perfect for tossing into a beach bag and not worrying about it. I’ll never understand expensive dry clean only silk cover ups. I would be so nervous to bring that to the beach with me!

Jaclyn Smith Sunglasses | $12.99 (on sale for $9.74)
I was surprised to see sunglasses, since we already got the cover up as a fashion accessory this month. But it’s a pleasant surprise, seeing as how I can always use cheap pairs in my car and in my beach bag. I’ve gotten my car broken into once and lost my favorite pair of designer sunglasses that way. So now I never leave my nice sunglasses in the car. But as a result of that, sometimes I forget to bring a pair with me and as I’m driving with the sun in my eyes I’m kicking myself. I try to keep cheap pairs in the glove box so if I always have a back up. This will be perfect for that.

Peaches and Petals June 2016 Review plus Promo Codes

Subscribers received different styles, and I’m happy with the one I got. I don’t really like the detailing on the side, but the frame fits my face shape nicely and my nose can actually hold the glasses up. Any other Asian ladies out there with super flat noses know what I’m talking about.

On Island Time Beach Tumbler Mug | $6.00 (?)
I’ve seen several variations of these plastic tumblers that subscribers received, but I’m pleased with mine. I like that it has a handle, unlike some of the other designs I saw. I’m guesstimating on price based on similar products that I have seen at Target. This actually kind of looks like a design you would see from Target, right? I mean that as a compliment too, since Target is my happy place.

Peaches and Petals June 2016 Review plus Promo Codes

Starfish Project Francina Earrings | $17.99
At first I was sort of disappointed in the earrings that I got, since they aren’t my style at all. But then I read the back of the card and learned more about what Starfish Project is, and I’m glad to have had the chance to support them through Peaches and Petals. They’re a nonprofit that provides employment and support to women who have suffered through human trafficking. They provide housing, counseling, health care, training, and careers. Knowing all this, I will be gifting this pair and purchasing a new pair from their website for myself.

Peaches and Petals June 2016 Review plus Promo Codes

On the back of the card is a personal story about one woman who was helped through the Starfish Project. It’s such a great cause and I really support the work that they are doing. Plus they have some super cute styles! I wish that we had received a more “beachy” style though. Going through their online catalogue, they have lots of summer looks that would have fit the theme of this box more.

Peaches and Petals June 2016 Review plus Promo Codes

Alterna Stylist Ocean Waves Hair Spray | $5.00 (?)
More sea salt spray! Subscription boxes are really piling this on this season! I have so many different ones to try now. This seems to be the older packaging and is also a travel size or deluxe sample size. I know the Alterna brand and I’ve had some of their products in the past, so I’m pleased to try the spray from them. I’m also happy that this is a small product and not the full 4 oz version. I would never be able to finish it if it were any larger!

Peaches and Petals June 2016 Review plus Promo Codes

Floating Circus Bag Tags | $10.95
This is the “beachy surprise” that varies from subscriber to subscriber. Some other people got a little makeup bag. These are definitely different and unlike anything I’ve gotten from a subscription box before, though I’m not sure if they’re for me. I prefer plastic or leather luggage tags that are more plain. These tags feel sturdy and hefty, though I feel like they wouldn’t hold up well if they got bumped around. The choice of using wood feels odd because it could easily break. The size is also so large and bulky that I think it would really get in the way.

Peaches and Petals June 2016 Review plus Promo Codes

Overall it was a solid box. Not my favorite, but not bad either. I think it would have been great if the earrings were a different style, but I do appreciate discovering Starfish Project and think that it was great for Peaches and Petals to partner with them. Hoping to see more of their stuff in future boxes, or similar nonprofits!

The value is sort of hard to estimate since a lot of the prices were guesses, but I think it’s around $61.82 for this box. Officially the highest I’ve seen yet! Over triple the cost of the box. I think the mix of lifestyle/home goods with fashion makes this a unique box. They seem to take more risks in sending out some more interesting items. Like I said earlier, I’ve gotten things from this subscription that I have not seen in any other boxes. The themes are also really fun and less generic than some of the bigger subscription companies out there (looking at you, POPSUGAR!).

Next month the theme will be “Dance to the Music”. Each box will receive a Boombotix Boombot Mini bluetooth portable speaker! Wonder what else will be included? I’m thinking maybe a music festival/boho sort of fashion piece, or maybe those gold temporary tattoos that are really popular.

Change in Birchbox Points Program Effective July 2016

Wow — HUGE change in Birchbox’s points program. I got this email while I was at work:

Change in Birchbox Points Effective July 2016Change in Birchbox Points Effective July 2016Change in Birchbox Points Effective July 2016

So basically, you will only be able to review 5 more samples for a total of 50 points after July 11th. Points will also now expire 6 months from the date earned, instead of the full year like before. The only (slight) upside of this new policy is that points can be spent in any increment. No more waiting until you have $10 worth to use them.

Like most other subscribers, I’m incredibly disappointed. Initially when I first got the email I completely misunderstood it: I thought they meant you could only review 5 samples each month even if your box had 6 samples. (Which is actually super reasonable and I would support such a rule.) But then once I read it over again I realized they meant that you only get to review 5 samples TOTAL. For a whole year! It’s such a horrible change that I honestly kind of thought it was a joke or a typo.

I feel like the points program was the one thing that really made Birchbox special. With so many other beauty subscriptions out there, the points were a huge incentive to subscribe to Birchbox instead of the competition. There are some months that don’t work for me, when I get samples I can’t use or really dislike or are really tiny. But I’m always okay with it because I felt like the upside of getting $5 worth of points to spend makes it worthwhile anyways. Without the points, I don’t think I would be happy to pay $10 for every month. There’s almost always one or two samples that I dislike or are so tiny they should be freebies (looking at you, perfume samples!).

Another thing to take into account is the Aces program. Right now, if you earn 500 points in a calendar year you become a Birchbox Ace, which gives you free shipping on all full sized orders and early access to boxes. Without the reviews, a subscriber would have to either spend $500 to become an Ace or refer 10 friends. Considering it’s only $350 to become a Sephora VIB, Ace hardly seems worth it. And without Ace, I wouldn’t get free shipping on all my orders. Sephora offers Flash shipping for $10/year. That’s 2-day shipping for all orders for only $10. I also get free 2-day shipping on all orders with Amazon Prime. All department stores offer great beauty gift with purchase promotions several times a year and Nordstrom has free shipping and free returns every day.

So why would I shop at Birchbox?

I have been an on-and-off subscriber to Birchbox since 2011 and genuinely loved my experience. I’ve recommended it to countless friends and gifted lots of subscriptions. It saddens me that one of my favorite subscription boxes is getting rid of their best perk. Without the points, I have no reason to shop with Birchbox anymore. My favorite brands and products are carried at other stores like Sephora and Nordstrom, who both have better rewards, free shipping, free samples, and physical stores near me. There are beauty boxes that give better value and a larger range of brands than Birchbox, for not much of a price difference (I’m thinking I’ll try Allure for $15/month). My annual subscription expires in July, and with a heavy heart I will not be resubscribing.

Serendipity by Little Lace Box May 2016 Box Review

Ack, I’m so behind again! But this is the last of the May boxes, I promise! Earlier in May I had the opportunity to sign up for a year’s worth of Serendipity by Little Lace Box. I have been keeping my eye on Little Lace Box for a while now and thought I would spring for the Serendipity since its so affordable and I’ve really liked the past boxes. Hopefully in the future I’ll be able to get the regular Little Lace Box subscription as well!

Serendipity by Little Lace Box is a bi-monthly subscription by the same people who run the original Little Lace Box. Serendipity is only $9.99/shipment, and sends out a collection of 5-7 items that “celebrate life, celebrate style, and celebrate you”. The shipments for the two boxes alternate, so if you subscribe to both Little Lace Box and Serendipity, you’ll receive a LLB in June and a Serendipity box in July. There’s no overlap at all. And while Little Lace Box has a theme for each shipment, Serendipity does not. Sign ups for Serendipity are often sold out and open briefly when new spots become available, so if you’re interested I would check the website every now and then to keep tabs! 

Serendipity by Little Lace Box May 2016 Box Review

This month the Serendipity actually has a semi-theme: it’s meant to complement the regular Little Lace Box subscription’s theme of “Dining Alfresco”.

Serendipity by Little Lace Box May 2016 Box Review

The pamphlet comes with little blurbs about each item and why it was chosen. This month also included a spoiler item for the regular Little Lace Box’s June shipment, which will include wine flight and tasting papers.

Serendipity by Little Lace Box May 2016 Box Review

Annie B’s Handmade Popcorn in Triple Treat | $2.00
My boyfriend was so happy to see this, since he loves any and all popcorn, but especially the caramel and cheese combination. I discovered this combination for the first time in Chicago, and was pleasantly surprised by how good it was! Caramel and cheese together sounded really gross to me, but trust me when I say it really works together. I’ve been on a diet lately (sigh…) so my boyfriend ended up taking this bag with him to work. I didn’t get to taste any, but he had nothing but good things to say!

Serendipity by Little Lace Box May 2016 Box Review

Modish Polish in Inspired by Pink | $12.00
A completely new-to-me brand of nail polish, which I’m always open to. Subscribers received different colors, and I’m extremely happy with the pale pink that I got. Inspired by Pink is part of their Beauty With A Cause Collection, and a portion of this pink color’s proceeds are donated to Lipstick Angels, a nonprofit dedicated to providing beauty services to patients with cancer. The polish is also 5-free and vegan friendly. Glad to have discovered this great brand!

Serendipity by Little Lace Box May 2016 Box Review

I ran out of polish swatch sticks, sorry y’all! It’s a pretty creme ballet pink that is really soft and feminine. I personally prefer pinks and glitters when it comes to nail polish, so this works out well for me. I think it’ll look amazing with a glittery top coat! Good opacity and smooth formula, very easy to apply and work with.

Serendipity by Little Lace Box May 2016 Box Review

Alfresco Stemless Wine Glasses | $7.99
When I first saw these when I opened the box, I assumed they were plastic. But nope, they’re actually glass! I was really impressed! And they’re not flimsy or thin either. These are sturdy and have a substantial weight to them. Definitely my favorite item in the box since they are so practical and well constructed. I know I’m not supposed to put wine glasses through the dishwasher but I tried with these and they held up great. I’ll probably be using these from now on for wine at home, and using the stemmed glassware for when we have guests.

Serendipity by Little Lace Box May 2016 Box Review

Pack-n-Go Insulated Tote | $6.99
Subscribers either received this in green or red. I wasn’t terribly excited to get a tiny lunchbox tote like this at first, since we have a few bigger ones that seem more practical. But then I thought about it and now I think this is actually a great size for just my boyfriend and I. Here in Houston we have an outdoor theater that hosts shows in the evenings in the summer, and this would be great for bringing a couple beers and snacks with us without busting out the larger totes/coolers. It’s big enough to fit 6 beers and 2 sandwiches comfortably (trust me, I’ve already tested this out), and has elastic pockets on both sides and a pocket on the front. It also has a strap long enough to be a crossbody, which is really convenient.

Serendipity by Little Lace Box May 2016 Box Review

Surprisingly  roomy on the inside! It doesn’t keep drinks cold for as long as our bigger ones do, but for a couple hours it definitely does the trick.

Serendipity by Little Lace Box May 2016 Box Review

Laguna Salt Company Tuscan Rosemary | $6.95
Runner-up for favorite item! I love flavored sea salts and rosemary is a versatile herb that goes with almost everything. It feels really appropriate for an alfresco dining theme, because as soon as I saw it my first thought was “ooh, I can’t wait to use this on the grill!”. I added some of this salt to olive oil and used it as a dip for bread. So delicious! And so incredibly simple. At 2 ounces it’s a pretty generous size too. I’ll definitely get plenty of use out of it! Will probably purchase more from this company when I run out–they have lots of great flavors like Sweet Hibiscus and Wild Ginger.

Serendipity by Little Lace Box May 2016 Box Review

Overall value comes to $35.93. For a $10 box! How do they do it? I have no idea. But I’m completely hooked. I thought this was an absolutely amazing box. The items felt well curated and the quality was great. I will use/have already used all 5 of the items and for only $10 (includes shipping!), it’s a complete steal. I don’t know of any other subscription out that that offers this quality for the price point. The mix of home, beauty, and food is really practical and reminds me a lot of POPSUGAR Must Have at a fraction of the cost. I think this is what POPSUGAR should have been aiming for when it launched the Mini box!

I really wish this could be a monthly box instead of a bi-monthly. I’m dying to get my July box already and it’s barely June. I’m so impressed with this that I really might have to get myself an actual Little Lace Box subscription as well!
