Summer Essentials: POPSUGAR June #MustHaveBox Reveal

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by POPSUGAR and may contain affiliate links.  All opinions expressed are my own.

Let’s talk Summer essentials.  Earlier last month I decided to partner with POPSUGAR and try out their June Must Have Box.  After all what better way to celebrate Summer than with a box full of goodies handpicked and created specifically for Summer?  Well my June box has arrived and I can’t wait to show you guys all the essentials that were inside!

What I Got

Sarongs are the perfect cover-ups for pool and beach days.  Made of 100% cotton, this sarong is long and wide enough that you can experiment with tying it different styles.  So you could opt to wear your sarong in a skirt-like style or transform it into a lightweight halter dress over your bathing suit!

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

Have you ever been a cookout and found yourself struggling to open your drink?  I have.  Here in the Carolinas Blenheim Ginger Ale is a stable at BBQs and pool parties.  This ginger ale doesn’t come in a pop top can either.  You’ll need a trusty and sturdy bottle opener to pop off the cap of your Blenheim.   This can opener works well on pop top cans as well for those of us who just don’t want to risk breaking a nail.

BBQs and pool parties in my family aren’t complete without food, music and GAMES!  This “Who Am I?” game is small enough to toss in your purse so that you can take it with you to all off your summer gatherings to test your celebrity knowledge.  Who doesn’t love a good trivia game?

Flawless nails are a must if you’re going to be hitting up the town.  With the 4th of July coming up, your nails will be the talk of the town with this red, white and blue patriotic polish.  I’ll be adding a layer of hot pink polish underneath mine for a little extra pop of color!  Also, this polish is cruelty-free.

I know they say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but so is a good compact mirror.  The Are You Ready compact from Knock Knock is amazing.  On the bottom there’s a regular mirror for quick fixes and on top is a magnifying mirror for more detailed touch-ups that require a little zoom-in.

Who knew these even existed?  Vegan-friendly and aluminium-free these deodorant wipes will forever be in my purse and I’ve already ordered some to live in our pool/beach bag.  I can’t be the only one who’s run out of the house in hurry and forgot to put on deodorant.  And what about the pool/beach?  I haven’t discovered waterproof deodorant on the shelves of Target or Walmart yet.  Now I can rest easy when I get out of the water and not have to worry about getting a little smelly because my deodorant’s washed off.

You guys know that I am all about living a healthy lifestyle.  That includes snacking as well which can be hard when you love carbs and starches.  However, with no artificial flavors or food colors, no MSG, cholesterol, chemical preservatives and 0 grams of trans fat, these crispy and thin Sriracha flavored pretzel chips can be my guilt-free summer snack.  My only complaint about these is they will make your mouth more than a bit dry.  So I recommend eating them some dip and keeping a nice glass of flavored water handy.

Overall, POPSUGAR did a great job of curating products that scream Summer and will make your life a little bit easier whether you’re hanging with family and friends enjoying some outdoor festivities or rolling solo at pool catching up your TBR list.  This is probably one of the best box subscriptions that I’ve seen in a while.  Nothing in this box will go waste.

You can rest easy investing in a subscription or paying as you go with the POPSUGAR Must Have Box.  They even have a mini and limited edition version.  So there’s a little something to fit every budget.  Other box subscription services could definitely take a few notes on this.  I can’t wait to find out what goodies will be in the next box!

    Those are the perfect summer must haves! I love Pacifica's body wash and lotion, so I'll be on the lookout for the wipes. One of my summer essentials is waterproof mascara.

    I had no clue deodorant wipes were a thing either. I seriously need to spend more time in the beauty aisles outside of the actual makeup section. LOL. Thanks for stopping by.

    I've tried Pacifica's lotions, but I've never tried any of their body washes. Going to pick some up and see how I like them. And the wipes are available at Walmart. I haven't seen them at my Target yet, but they might be available there too.

    It's really a good subscription box. The products in this box alone were worth over $100 and that's without tax. So the subscription pretty pays for itself. I've gotten so much use out of my sarong, compact and nail lacquer already.
