This month’s June PopSugar Must Have Box consisted of wearable, cleanable, edible, and playable goodies – all for just $39.95.

KNOCK KNOCK Are You Ready (For Your Close-Up?) Compact mirror [$10] and NCLA Born on the 4th Nail Lacquer [$16]

The design of KNOCK KNOCK compact mirror is cute and appropriate for today’s selfie enthused fanatic. However, I find the message of this product reinforces our hyperbole embodiment of a narcissistic society. It’s price point of $10 is appealing if you’re looking for a nice mirror. This particular product doesn’t attract my interest, though, considering I have so many compact mirrors from other subscription boxes and Sephora.

Lets talk about NCLA nail lacquer, though. It’s an explosion of glitterific patriotic colors and absolutely appropriate for the upcoming 4th of July holiday. This cruelty-free product is a total win in this month’s subscription box.

HAT ATTACK Neutral Diamonds-Printed Sarong [$58] (hat not included in subscription box)

HAT ATTACK sarong is the perfect accessory to use during this summertime. It’s very lightweight and it’s a whole lot of fabric! I can wrap and tie this into multiple different styles. I can wear this over my swimsuit or over a tank and jean shorts.

PRESSELS Sriracha [$1.29] and WILD AND WOLF Ridley’s Games Room “Who Am I?” Quiz [$12.95]

I have to say that I find PRESSELS Sriracha awfully tasty. It’s low in fat and sodium. It’s a great alternative to greasy chips. I admit, I ate this whole bag in one sitting. It doesn’t hurt that I am also a fan of spicy food.

As for WILD AND WOLF Ridley’s Games Room “Who Am I?” Quiz, well, if you follow me on Snapchat (joliepagaille) then you may have witnessed my multiple personalities playing this game. (I don’t have multiple personalities – I was just bored.) At any rate, I think this game is fun for any one with a vast knowledge of celebrities. I admit though, if I were to play this at a party, I would lose very badly.

SISTERS OF LOS ANGELES “Cheers” Gold Bottle Opener [$12] (wine not included)

The golden bar, aka “Cheers” Gold Bottle Opener by SISTERS OF LOS ANGELES is massive. It’s a pretty bottle opener and great for any BBQ/backyard party. It’s not something that I need or want, per se, but I’m sure it will come in handy. It can also make a fun housewarming gift.

PACIFICA Underarm Deodorant Wipes [$9] (located in the lower right)

In my haste to take pictures, I forgot to take one of PACIFICA Underarm Deodorant Wipes. These came at a very interesting time! I’m actually having skin issues, which has also affected my underarm. I have not been able to use any antiperspirant or deodorant sticks without my underarm breaking out. So these wipes came at a great time, and they are aluminum-free and uses a vegan formula. They’re not antiperspirant, but they do help make your underarms feel refreshed! The one thing I am not crazy about is the scent. It has a very strong earthy scent. Other than the scent, my underarms thank Pacifica for making this product!

OVERALL

The total retail value of this box is $119.24 for the price of $39.95 a month. I admit I wasn’t too overly thrilled with this box, but I did like it minus a couple of exceptions. I do have a Referral Link if you’re looking for a box that brings you different lifestyle items. I tend to stay with this box subscription, because I don’t always prefer receiving beauty-only monthly bags/boxes.

Do you like subscription boxes? What are your favorites?

PS – I know I’ve been gone from the blogging game for a long time. Life happens – maybe more on this another time.

* POPSugar Must Have graciously provided a free box for review.
