Must Have Beauty: Smell Bent St. Tropez Dispenser - $45

If a beach vacation isn't in the cards this year, why not bring a little piece of paradise to you? Smell Bent's St. Tropez Perfume turns your summer into one fabulous beach party. Escape to your favorite tropical island with the intoxicating blend of jasmine absolute and fresh coconut aromas. It's a relaxing beach day in a bottle!

This was the one item from spoilers that I was most uncertain about. Perfume can either be a hit or miss with me, especially since some fragrances give me migraines! Luckily though I love this scent! It does kind of remind me of sunscreen, but I wouldn't say that it smells like sunscreen. To me it smells like summer, which I love.


Must Have Home: Zing Anything Citrus Zinger - $17

Quench your thirst in a refreshing new way. With the Citrus Zinger by Zing Anything, you will never go back to plain water again. Press lemons, limes, or any water for an energizing drink. This zinger will keep you hydrated even on scorching hot days. Perfect to take to yoga, the office, or better yet, the beach!

I actually already have a citrus zinger from my fancy box. I've only used it a few times. I feel like it only really works for citrus, or am I doing something wrong? Either way this one is up for swap. Popsugar also included a coupon for 10% off + free shipping. 


Must Have Fitnesss: Tone It Up - $15

Give your metabolism a boost, and get fit with the ladies from Bravo's Toned Up. For those of you who are always on the go or can't make it up to the gym, this Tone It Up DVD will be your new obsession. Since each calorie-blasting workout is only 30 minutes long, you can fit in a quick session before your next beach day or vacation. Sculpt and tone your body to unveil your sexiest self this season.

I love workout videos, so I opened this up right away. I can tell I'm out of shape though. I need to get back into a routine!

Must Have Home: Kerry Cassill Eye Mask - $24

Summer is the season for relaxation. But with the days getting longer, sometimes it's hard to get the beauty rest we need. Now with your printed Kerry Cassill eye mask designed exclusively for Popsugar Must Have, you can sleep peacefully. It is made with soft voile cotton, so you'll find out why sweet dreams are made of this!

I'm hard of hearing, so I'm much more sensitive to light than sound when sleeping. I actually use one at my boyfriend's house as his computer light keeps me up at night and the sunlight from his large window wakes me up early in the morning. I sleep much better with a mask!


vbeaute Lip Spread Anti-aging Tinting Lip Gloss - $19

This was a gift for subscribers who ordered the resort box and had a delay in shipping. I'm glad they reached out to subscribers with a gift like this considering how late that box shipped. I have a ton of lip gloss already, but I love that it's anti-aging AND changes color to a shade that fits your skin tone best. On me it's a bright pink.

Must Have Beauty: Obsessive Complusive Cosmetics Pool Boy Nail Lacquer - $10

Kick your summer off the bright way with your pool boy nail lacquer from Obsessive Complusive Cosmetics. The polish is densely pigmented and delivers super-long-lasting results. Better yet, this quick-drying nail lacquer is 100 percent vegan and cruelty free. You'll want to debut your polish by the poolside all summer long.

I already have a ton of polish, but I'm looking forward to trying this one. Emily from Cupcakes & Cashmere actually had it listed on her wish list awhile back! 


Must Have Food: Hi I'm Skinny Sticks Mult-Grain Sweet Onion - $4

Just because swimsuit season is approaching doesn't mean snacking should be off-limits. Luckily, these Hi I'm Skinny Sticks Multi-Grain Sweet Onion are a super tasty and healthy alternative to chips and cookies.  With 40 percent less fat than potato chips, 15 g of whole grains per serving, and under four calories per stick, you can satisfy your munchies guilt-free.

These were good, but I didn't think they were amazing. I would probably purchase them again though.

Overall this box had a value of $115, not including the vbeaute gift. While this wasn't one of my favorite boxes, I lucked out in liking the Smellbent perfume! Popsugar has been on a roll for me lately!
