PopSugar Must Have Subscription March Review

I have my PopSugar March box here for review.

Overall I am very happy with this month's box.  It is well rounded and has items that I have not received in boxes before so I am happy about that.  I also liked that these items are products that I would not necessarily think to purchase so it has been fun trying out these different treats.  Well I will just get started with the box.

the first thing I pulled out was an oil diffuser set by The Archivist in Cucumber Lemon.  Now I have not used diffusers myself.  I generally go old school with my signature candle scents.  But Mr Man likes to use diffusers.  I guess he has a fear of house fire or something.  Well I pulled the jar and reeds out of the packaging and *wow*  the scent is strong.  Not cloying but it definitely needs to be in a larger area.  The cucumber is much more pronounced than the lemon and I like it for a spring to summer scent.  Very happy with this item.  I did have to take the reeds out after accidentally leaving this bottle in a closed bedroom for an afternoon.  Also the lid can be recapped so you can put the scent on pause if you wish.$20)
Next up is the Micromagic Microdermabrasion tube by Bliss beauty($48) I am happy to see a full size microderm product for my face.  I like Bliss products and have been happy with this pumice scrub.  It has a very mild slightly minty scent.  Not overly gritty and you can massage with as much pressure as you choose.  Of course this is a once a week product and if you think it is too harsh for your face feel free to use it on your body, elbows, and/or feet instead.  

I also got the Wet Brush in a travel size($4.95)  This brush is supposed to be great for brushing out your wet hair because the bristles are super flexible so that it does not pull and snap your hair when it is more delicate.  It an be used wet or dry.  I am still on the fence about this brush.  Yes after a few uses I have gotten used to the super softness of the bristles.  And yes, I know that I should not use a regular brush on my freshly showered super long/bleached hair.  And yes, this brush does the job of detangling.  But I have always used a regular paddle brush and have not had any issues with bad breakage in the last couple years.  Maybe I should try the full sized brush before dismissing this Wet Brush.  I have the Amazon link(affiliate codes) to it at the bottom of this post.  

Also as an added bonus we got 2 samples by Benefit cosmetics.  The Roller Lash Mascara & Porefessional makeup primer.  The mascara is supposed to be curling, but I can guarantee that it will give me panda eyes within 2 hours.  I can only use a couple mascaras.  Maybe I will try it with a sealer.  I am happy to see the primer.  I just need to remember to use this before putting on foundation to help my makeup set and stay.  

The next couple of items fit in with their travel theme(like the travel sized Wet brush).  
There is a fun pad of checklists of What to Pack Pad by Knock Knock($7)  A fun pack(maybe 50 sheets) of a basic checklist of what to pack when going away for a trip so you don't forget any essentials.  I like that this pad is pretty up to date and also has blanks so you can write down your own personalized needs too.  I am pretty awesome at packing so I may gift this to a friend.  
In the vein of travel bags is a Pink Pina Zip Pouch by Samudra($40!)  Insert expletive of choice at that price; I know I did.  This is a fun and useable 12"x 9" zip pouch ideal for travel and can hold all your toiletries or great for tossing in a beach bag so loose items stay together.  But it is a oversized pink zip pouch with pineapples on it.  I think $12 would be a more than generous price for this.  Apparently it is exclusive to this PopSugar box.  Whatevs.

There is was also one more item in the box.  Halfpops in Mesquite BBQ($1.69).  Now Mesquite is not what I generally gravitate towards, but these halfpops were darn tasty.  Think Corn Nuts for hipsters.  

Well I hope you enjoyed this review.  You can subscribe HERE  by entering (affiliate link) and take $5 off your first box by entering the code:  MUSTHAVE5 or simply look at the website at
