The April 2017 Popsugar Must Have Box was all about


reset – natural


clean – grow


The fold-out product information card gives item details, prices, and photos.

Morning Culture – Dipped Bamboo Cutting Board ($9.50)

I really needed a new cutting board so I was pleased to find this pretty one in the April box! The size is perfect – now I don’t need to use and wash the huge cutting board just to chop one onion! You can use this eco-friendly 12 X 5 1/2 inch bamboo cutting board as a serving tray, too! It is dipped in food grade paint so it is safe for cutting or for serving. The hole at the top is perfect to hold a dip bowl.

Nourish – Holy Habanero Roasted Corn 1.2 oz ($2)

These fire-roasted, spicy little nibbles are gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and non-GMO. I thought they were pretty hot but just couldn’t stop eating them!

The Cottage Greenhouse – Carrot & Neroli Rich & Repair Body Wash 11.5 oz ($22)

This is a nicely scented body shower oil and body wash to nourish and hydrate your skin. I never knew there was any oil in carrots but but apparently the oil is in the carrot seeds. This also contains coconut oil, cocoa butter, and honey. Shower oils are pretty new to me but I have tried quite a few in different beauty boxes and love how they make my skin feel.

Tonic Australia – 2 Lavender Sachets ($15)

These sachets are in pretty spring flower prints of 100% cotton and filled with dried lavender flowers. Lavender not only smells beautiful but is known for its calming effect – so one will go under my pillow and the other in with my bed linens.

Sensodyne – Pronamel Strong and Bright Extra Fresh Toothpaste 3 oz ($5.62)

This is toothpaste is a special add-on to the April 2017 Popsugar box and it is for for sensitive teeth & cavity prevention. It is fortified with minerals and has been clinically proven to help strengthen your tooth enamel. Plus it polishes away stains for whiter teeth.

Cocolab – Cocofloss 32 yds. ($8)

Soft, multifilament dental floss infused with wax, coconut oil, fruit oils, and aromas that is easy to handle and gentle to your gums. I received the Delicious Mint flavor, but it also comes in Strawberries, Cara Cara Orange, and Fresh Coconut. I’d love to try them all!

Makers Kit – Crystal Terrarium ($32)

This is a very cool sand art terrarium kit that comes with everything you need to complete your project. There are instructions in the box as well as an instruction video on the Makers Kit website but it looks really simple. The centerpiece of the whole display is an amethyst crystal surrounded by preserved mosses. I know that Sarah will LOVE to make this for her desk at work, so I decided not to put it together for the review and will give it to her when we next get together.

The retail value of the April 2017 Popsugar Must Have box came to $94.12. This was one of my favorite boxes from Popsugar in the past few months! Everything was perfect for my family – I especially love the cutting board and the shower oil/body wash. Sarah is thrilled about making the crystal terrarium, too! I felt that everything was very spring-like and curated right to the monthly theme.

  1. I think the cutting board is the most original I’ve seen in a monthly gift box. I would have enjoyed that as well!

  2. I have seen many reviews of the Popsugar boxes and am always impressed. I like the variety that is offered. I think the terrarium is very cute
