PopSugar Must Have Update – January 2014

I just opened up my January PopSugar Must Box and, as usual, was surprised and delighted by this month’s contents.  If you’re unfamiliar, PopSugar Must Have is a monthly subscription service where you receive a selection of full size and premium beauty, fashion, home, and fitness items for $39.95 per month (this includes shipping and is available in the US only).


January’s box revolved around a new year, new you theme, including “one-of-a-kind products…that’ll help you change up your routine for the better.”


What’s in my January box?

Malin and Goetz Detox Mask – This mask is a five-minute treatment that is meant to “purify, clarify, and balance all skin types.”  They recommend using it one to two times a week in place of your nighttime cleanser.  I’m always a little bit nervous to try out new masks on my sensitive skin, but five-minute ones do not seem as intense, which I like.  The packaging reminds me of Bliss products, which I have used and loved for years.  We’ll see if I love the results as much with this mask!

Pipsnacks White Truffle Popcorn – I can already say with confidence that this popcorn is awesome!  Total yum!  If you’re a fan of popcorn and like truffle this will hit the spot like no other!  Sadly, it doesn’t look like it’s readily available across the country, although a quick search on the Pipsnacks website showed availability in the New York and tristate area.  If you must have some, you can order right from their website.  Hopefully this brand pops up in my local Whole Foods soon!

✻ Jack & Lucy Tech Gloves – Tech gloves like these come in so handy that it’s always nice to have another pair.  I have a few inexpensive sets from Target and a couple pairs of now discontinued Lululemon ones that I’ve collected over the years tucked into all of my coats so I am never without gloves.  I could not find this brand online anywhere, so maybe it is new?  All I know is that these are super handy and fit like a glove (so many puns, so little time!).

Revlon by Marchesa Box O’ Files – These are the prettiest little nail files I’ve ever seen!  I love the matchbox packaging as well.  It looks like Revlon partnered with Marchesa for a limited edition line of beauty accessories, including nail files, tweezers, and a compact mirror.  Who doesn’t love beautiful beauty accessories?

Rifle Paper Co. 2014 Flip Around the World Desk Calendar – I love the whimsical illustrations of twelve major cities in this beautiful standing desk calendar.  I’d never hear of Rifle Paper Co before receiving this product in my January box and after a quick look around their website, I am smitten with their design and aesthetic.  I recommend checking out their darling journals if you’re a fellow notebook love like me!

The Juice Generation Book – I went through a big juicing phase in my mid-twenties and I would have absolutely loved to have such beautifully laid out resource such as this book at the time!  Upon first glance, this book (written by Eric Helms and Amely Greeven with a foreword by Salma Hayek) seems informative and encouraging to anyone wishing to add fresh juice to their diet.   We’ll see if it inspires me to bust out my juicer!

Check out the coordinating video to hear about my favorites from last month’s selections and see my reactions as I open this month’s box:

As I mention in the video, I decided it would be fun to pass on the goodies from previous boxes that don’t necessarily suit my personal needs or style to others who would truly enjoy them.  The January PopSugar Extras Giveaway will run until Sunday, February 2, 2014 at 6 PM CT.  The giveaway is open internationally.  All entrants under the age of 18 must have parental permission to enter.  One person will win the the Erickson Beamon Rocks bangle and another person will win the Lulu Frost bracelet pictured below.  You will be able to chose which bracelet you would prefer in the event that you win when you enter the giveaway.


You can enter by following the directions in the Rafflecopter widget posted below.   I’ll announce the two winners on THIS blog post and contact them directly, as always.  Good luck!


Congrats to Sandy & Ashlyn on being selected as the winners of my January PopSugar Extras Giveaway!

Sometimes Rafflecopter experiences technical difficulties.  If you can’t enter for some reason, try again later and it will probably work.

I will be back next month to share my favorites from January’s box as well as a look at February’s goodies.  I plan on including my favorites from the previous month’s boxes in these blog posts from that point on.  Click here to learn more about the PopSugar Must Have Box.  Use code REFER5 to save $5 off your first box!
