January is the month of starting fresh, rejuvenated and motivated to take on the rest of the year. The items in the January POPSUGAR Must Have Box were selected to do just that- a detox for skin, body and mind.
The POPSUGAR Must Have Box is a lifestyle subscription box curated by the POPSUGAR editors that includes beauty, fashion, fitness, food, even home items. Every month, a new box is released containing new items (full-sized!) from these categories.

The Sourcebooks Inc Instant Happy Notes ($8.99 value) in the box are super cute, inspirational sticky notes that you can leave for someone who needs a little pick-me-up. They have cute illustrations, motivating quotes and are just plain fun. I think it would be fun to take these to the office and spread some happiness.
May Designs Desk Calendar & Notecard ($25), a 12-month calendar with individual cards and stand. Each design is so pretty and unique; the calendar also came with a coupon for 25% off a custom design. After the month is up, you can tear it down the middle and use it as a card- pretty cool, right?
As cute as this calendar is, I would never pay $25 for this on it’s own so it’s nice that it was included in this box.
The Must Have Box includes the Manduka eQua Mat Towel in Playa ($38 value), an absorbent, slip-resistant yoga mat. While I do go to yoga every now and then, I don’t feel like I sweat enough to actually put this to use. And honestly, I would probably forget to bring it with me. I will say that the towel feels like it is high quality.
My favorite item in this month’s box is, surprisingly, the Glade No. 3 Coconut and Beach Woods Candle ($4.99 value). If this candle did not come in the packaging it does, I would honestly never guess that it is Glade. It smells so good– like a high-end soy candle and has an amazing beachy scent. Glade is seriously stepping their candle game up.
Also included in the box is the Goldfaden MD Fresh A Peel Multi Acid Resurfacing Peel ($85 value), a Lactic and Multi-Fruit Enzyme exfoliating peel. I haven’t tried it yet- TBH the term ‘peel’ somewhat terrifies me as I have never done a peel before. It’s said to be non-irritating, leaving skin soft and smooth. I’ll try to work up the courage this week to try it out, stay tuned 😉
Another favorite from this month’s box is the Dean & Deluca Peppermint Loose Leaf Tea ($10.75 value). I made the tea hot (in my French press) and it is DELICIOUS. I love pretty much everything mint and this has been added to my mint love list. It’s refreshing, fresh and helped clear up my sinuses. Did you know that peppermint is also a great digestive aid? The perfect sipper after a big meal. Also included is a coupon for 15% off a future purchase from Dean and Deluca!
For me, this month’s box has some hits but it also has a few items that were “meh”. With a retail value of $191 however, the $39.95 price tag for this box is a definite yes.
