Baggu Medium 3D Zip – Sailor Stripe: Retail Value $10.00
This is an expandable, waterproof, nylon bag designed to keep necessities safe and dry. With a design similar to a dopp kit when full, this bag really can contain a ton of items; I stuffed every item sitting on my husbands vanity inside, just to see: a full sized toothpaste, deodorant, full sized clippers/razor, several other random things and there is still space for more. (shown above) Anything I would ever take on a trip, beauty wise & anything electronic or otherwise that would need to stay dry and free from sand inside a beach bag, will fit inside. The design is nothing special, the shape is kind of oblong and a bit weird, reminds me of a lunch bag. It has a loop attached for carrying or hanging. It’s handy to have if you need something like it and do not already own something similar. I’ll use it because I do go to the beach often and constantly find sand in things and worry about my phone and other items floating loosely in my bag. I’ll toss it in one of my many beach bags so it’s there when I need it. I do hope this will be it for this type of item for some time though. I have way too many items like this.
8.5 in. H x 5.1 in. W x 5 in. D when fully expanded.
100% ripstop nylon.
Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Lip Cream in blush: Retail Value $24.00
Juice Beauty is a natural beauty brand, cruelty free and vegan. I’ve tried several skin care and cosmetics from the brand over the years; some I’ve liked, some I have not cared for. The lip shade is describe as a beachy-pink and appears as more of a dusty nude/rose on me. It can be layered for increased intensity. I didn’t care much for it at its full intensity..it was too dusty and just the wrong tone for my preference, but when wiped with my fingers and smoothed out it looked more the beachy-pink described. The coverage and application is good but the texture is slightly gritty. It was not as smoothing and hydrating as I had hoped it would be and while it didn’t feel dry on my lips, I thought it made them look a bit more dry. It’s an OK lipstick, not one I would re-purchase. I can see they were going for a neutral shade; not too light and not too dark as to compliment the widest range of skin tones in this particular product, so I certainly do not fault their choice. I’m simply very picky when it comes to lip shades.
Well..this was definitely my least favorite of the 3 PSMH ‘mini’ boxes thus far. I was really banking on the whole ‘3rd times a charm’ concept. The 34.00 value given does hold true in this box, but I would not have purchased either of these items. I keep saying I may unsubscribe to the mini if things do not look up..but I just can’t seem to quit you Popsugar! I do use the Pharmacy lip balm and the H2O + Oasis, from my prior 2 boxes like crazy and my husband loved the scent of the Green Market Purveying Company Candle, while burning..so I continue to hang on. I am definitely looking forward to seeing what my full sized box brings, which will be arriving any day now. Thoughts?
