PopSugar Must Have June 2013 Review

I decided to re-up my subscription to PopSugar, so I've committed to another three months (June, July, August), since the cost per box is less if you subscribe for three or more. I'm still crossing my fingers that an awesome coupon code comes along in August! I just can't see myself not getting a PopSugar box at this point. PopSugar is easily my favorite subscription, even if it's a little more expensive than most.
First Look
Fit Popcorn in Sea Salt ($5.33) Yum! This popcorn is really simple, but really good. I was able to get two decently sized servings out of this bag. Now I want to try the parmesan and herb flavor! The butter flavor sounds good too.

Quench the Thirsty Wintergreen Mints ($1.79) Who doesn't need more mints to throw in their purse/car/wherever? Plus, I love the test tube design, and the cork opener is so unique. Proceeds from these mints go to provide water for people who need it.
Gorjana and Griffin Zuma Scarf ($62) I'm not quite sure what PopSugar was thinking with this one. Not that it's not super cute--it is--but I have a hard time understanding why I need a scarf in June. I hardly want to wear clothes at all, let alone items designed to keep you extra toasty, like scarves! Come September this will be useful, though.
Revenge Wears Prada ($15.05) I love that this book is a new release, and it's great that it's in hardcover. The writing, though? Just atrocious. I can't speak for the whole book, but I'm a couple of chapters in, and I'm not a fan. It's also a little mean of PopSugar to send a sequel to a book. Not that this requires a lot of backstory, but I always feel weird about reading a sequel without having read the preceding books. I do love it when PopSugar sends books, but this one? Not so much.

Addicted to Sweat, Jaw Breaker Chair ($19.99) I tried this out last night, and it IS certainly quite a work out. I'm not surprised that this is inspired by Madonna. I like that the only fitness equipment that this requires is a chair, but I felt kind of unstable doing it and a lot of the moves were done standing on the chair when they could have been done on the ground. I would have preferred the dance themed one. Hear that, PopSugar? I just want to dance! Send me Zumba next time, please!

Gorjana-Griffin Voucher ($25) As you can see in the above photo, there's a gift card there. The "gift card" is $25 off a purchase on Gorjana's website. I purchased this ring with my voucher. It regularly costs $30, so the voucher knocked the price down to $5. I still had to pay $8 shipping, which is ridiculous for a ring, but $13 including shipping for a $30 ring seemed worthwhile to me.
Juice Beauty CC Cream Samples (~$5) PopSugar was smart enough to send out samples in two different shades, so that someone like me didn't get an oompa loompa shade and a darker skinned person didn't get stuck with something that seemed vampiric. Smart move. And these tubes are big enough to actually try the product out, too.

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair Moisturizer ($65) Well, I don't use moisturizers hardly ever, let alone in the summer. I already feel oily enough. Luckily, one of the few beauty products my mom uses is moisturizer, so she'll appreciate this way more than I will.

This box has a value of about $200--wow! I can't hold my aversion to moisturizer against PopSugar, and I love that they sent more media this month. I'm still scratching my head over the scarf in the summer box, but it will be a great addition to my wardrobe come fall. Yet again, a great month with PopSugar!
