Popsugar's Must Have Bag August 2012 has once again excited me. I waited in intense anticipation for my box to arrive. The tracking site said to expect it on Tuesday, Sept. 4, so imagine my surprise when my mail lady came knocking on my door this afternoon with an over-sized box. I immediately saw the bright pink writing and knew it was my Popsugar box.
I immediately opened it to find many, many surprises inside. I was well beyond pleased to see the number of items inside my box.
The first thing that caught my eye was a picture of a butt in green underwear. This happened to be a DVD called Pop Physique Original Butt Total Body Workout. This is just what I need. No, really, I'm not kidding! I really, REALLY needed this! My husband and I have been on this intense diet and we have already lost 45 lbs between us and I was thinking that I needed to start working out. This workout boasts on the front that you will burn 500 calories if you do the complete DVD. I will start this tomorrow (maybe I should take before and after pics!). This DVD is $13 on amazon.com, but they only have 3 available.
I then turned my eyes to a bright blue bag. Since I have been on this diet, I am constantly looking for products that compliment what I am already eating and that will replace unhealthy choices I have made in the past. I believe this next product will do just that. Pretzel Crisps are crispy, delicious, and have no fat and only 110 calories per serving. I'm sold! In fact I bought a giant bag tonight at Sam's Club. The hard part will be limiting myself to a serving size! I will, though, because I am liking the scale going down too much to mess up now. These cost $3.49 for a 7.2 oz bag.
A long cardboard box, the entire length of the big box, was next. I had no idea what to expect as I opened this box. It turned out to be a reed diffuser from Alora. The scent is Isola and it smells heavenly. This exact diffuser can be ordered on the Alora website for a whopping $90.
Next, I noticed a red box with the name Govino on top. I had no idea what this was, but I quickly found out that these were on the go wine glasses. I don't really drink much wine, so they will probably be used for juice or Crystal Light. This 4 pack tote of shatter-proof wine glasses are $12.95
Wrapped inside Popsugar's signature pink tissue paper, there was a small black drawstring bag with two glass bottles inside. I was pleased to find that these were facial products, a cleanser and an exfoliator. These products are made by Sprout. The 4 oz cleanser costs $23.99 and the 4 oz exfoliator costs $24.99. The cleanser is non-foaming and the exfoliator is a powder, both of which are new to me. They are made from all natural ingredients. These look very promising.
Alongside the Sprout products were some Tatcha Blotting Papers. These Petal Fresh Japanese papers remove excess oil from skin without disturbing makeup. These will definitely come in handy for me and my combination skin. They retail for $12.95/30 papers.
A small striped blue and white package had gotten moved to the bottom of this box. It was a Baggu Bag all wrapped up in a neat little package. I plan on using this when I make a short trip to the grocery store. These bags retail for $10.
This month's box box included several "extras" as well as the regular stuff. Included with the extras was a sample size bag of Bear Naked granola that looks rather tasty, a Postagram card with a code for 10 free prints, valued at $10, and a couple of cute cardboard coasters with a 15% off coupon for Benziger Family Winery.
Altogether I thought this was an awesome box and well worth $35. I will definitely continue with Popsugar. I felt like a kid at Christmas when I opened my box this afternoon. Want one of your own for September? Click HERE to get it!
