March PopSugar Must Have Box

The March PopSugar Must have box has arrived.  The theme this time was a vacation or getaway which I just came back from.  🙂

Here’s what was in this month’s box.

March PopSugar Must Have Box

Bliss – Micromagic Microdermabrasion Treatment  $48

March PopSugar Must Have Box

I have tried various face scrubs in the past but have not yet tried this one.  I’ll give it a try and see how it compares to Origins Modern Friction and Josie Maran Argan cleansing powder.

Update: I didn’t care for this scrub.  It had some ingredient in it that makes your skin feel tingly (like toothpaste has) but it did nothing for the pores on my nose.  I think the tingle is meant to distract you and make you feel like it’s doing something more than it actually is plus I don’t like having extra chemicals in my skincare products.

Greenmarket Purveying Co. – The archivist Lemon + Cucumber Reed Diffuser Kit  $20

March PopSugar Must Have Box

This has a nice refreshing smell and I could see myself using it in the spare bedroom.

Update: I set this up in our spare bedroom and it actually made the whole house smell!  It’s a pleasant fruity smell so I don’t mind but was surprised at how strong it was.

Samudra – Pink Pina Zip Pouch $40

March PopSugar Must Have Box

I love the pink plastic of this and it reminds me of things I had back in the 80’s.  I’m not sure what I’ll put in it, but it’s very cute.

Knock Knock – What to Pack Pad $7

March PopSugar Must Have Box

This would have been useful for my trip had I not already created a OneNote file that contains a full list of everything I pack when I go on a trip.  I created a special OneNote file for travel this time and already have a full personalized packing list.  This one is too generic for me having just “tops” or “makeup”.  I like my full personalized list better.

Wet Brush – The Squirt  $4.99

March PopSugar Must Have Box

I’ll definitely give this a try.  With my long hair I’m often fighting with tangles after a shower.

Update: I LOVE this brush! I used it after I washed my hair and it was so gentle on the tangles I ended up pulling out a lot less hair in the process.  Normally brushing my hair leads to a ton of hair on the brush, but not with this.  I sent one to my Mom to try.

Halfpops – Halfpopped Popcorn  $1.69

March PopSugar Must Have Box

I think I’ve tried these before and liked them.  I’m a huge fan of popcorn so these are right up my alley.

Update: I think I tried these in the cheese flavor before.  The butter and salt version is just sort of bland.

Benefit Cosmetics – Roller Lash Mascara and POREfessional – sample

March PopSugar Must Have Box

I haven’t tried this mascara yet (I usually don’t wear any because it irritates my eyes) but the lady at the benefit counter was pushing this when I was purchasing some sunscreen.  I’ll try it once and see how my eyes react to it.  I think I’ve tried POREfessional in the past and just thought it was “enh”.

Overall this was a good box but not my favorite.  I’m excited to try the face scrub and brush and the pink bag is cute.  I’m excited to see what will come next month.  I’m hoping it will be a spring themed box now that spring is here.
