POPSUGAR Must Have August 2014 *SPOILERS*

Recommended Posts

That makes sense. I knew about the referral link thing. I'm thinking most codes posted on here are not blog specific, so hopefully the awesome MUT community will keep posting the okayed ones. I definitely don't want MUT to go "poof"! :)

Yeah, the reason I posted the reminder about blog promo codes was because someone posted a blog-specific code.  Not allowed.  It is essentially a referral code even if it's not called that, and referral codes are not allowed.  If REFER5 was still active (and for all I know, it is), that one *would* be okay because that one was/is generic and can't be linked to one specific blog.

 

(Speaking as a member and not a mod, it's a good thing we don't allow referral codes because that would mean the ipsy, Julep, and Birchbox threads would look like Facebook with endless strings of "click here to sign up!" posts and no actual content.)

Ok- I know that we're not allowed to post blogger promos but is it ok to post that there's a new promo out there? If not, sorry mods, I totally understand if you remove this post- I wish I had waited & used the new one instead -new one has a code that includes the June Turkish towel as a GWP- have fun on the treasure hunt ladies :-)

Well, the $10 off code didn't work for me, but I used the code for a free turkish towel with subscription and it worked. I don't have one of those, so I'm excited! (About a towel, lol.)

Debating whether or not I should do the MSA turkish towel deal if it's still good by the time I get paid. I haven't really used my last one much... but it's so nice lol.

Sorry, I'm dumb... Just checked the site and I see what you mean. Also, now the whole no posting blog codes thing makes more sense. I must have missed a bunch of posts in the thread because I didn't see anything about the towel code.

I've been on a PS break for a bit so I decided to jump on the August box as I remembered how great last August's box was. Here is a reminder, in case you forgot:

I was able to use the code still BUT not on either of the accounts I had used before. I had to create a new account in order to use it. Thanks to whoever posted it!

I'm wearing the necklace today! Thanks for the reminder

I was able to use the code with a new account as well!  Thanks everyone for the "heads up!"  Evidently, it's only good for the first 500 people.

I was able to use the free towel code, and it charged me 39.55, which supposedly means it worked and they know to put the towel in. I hope this is true, because that is the only reason I subbed! I was going to wait this month out, but that towel changed my mind. PSMH is one of those subs where I feel pretty fickle, sometimes I love it and sub, others times I hate it and cancel. Right now, I love it, haha.

 

I wish there was some kind of confirmation besides the price to show that I will get the towel, especially since it was limited to only 500. I want it for my cruise in October!

I was wondering the same thing, so I emailed them for confirmation and they got back to me in a day :)

I already have two boxes coming. I think I would be crazy if I ordered a third just for the towel...... Crazy like a fox?

You're not alone my friend- I was having the same thought..lol!!

So I emailed them to confirm the towel, and according to my email time stamps, they got back to me 14 minutes later! Now that's some efficiency! They confirmed that I am indeed getting the towel, so I am one happy camper. Er, cruiser.

I couldn't resist signing up for August with the code for the free Turkish Towel. I was tempted to get the Men's box from BB but couldn't justify $88 for things I wasn't thrilled to get. I'm excited to get the towel and my first ever Pop Sugar box.

Last Augusts box looks awesome I am hoping for a box like that again.

 

I use my Turkish towel as a tablecloth lol.

I was wondering how people are using their towels. I actually haven't used mine yet as I don't go to the beach or go on picnics on a regular basis.

I use it just like I would use any of my bath sheets at home. :)

I use mine specifically for my hair. It is super absorbent and since there are no "fibers" to rough up the hair shaft it does not leave my hair frizzy when it air dries. I love it!

I use mine as a regular bath towel. They are sooooo absorbent it's insane. They just suck the water out of my wet hair. They also dry very fast. My husband uses the basement bathroom shower after mowing the lawn (I don't want the grass being tracked upstairs) He had an issue a few times with hanging the towel and having it get a mildew smell in the week before he used that bathroom again. Now he uses the Turkish towels exclusively and they dry out completely within an hour of use. No risk of mildew! (Yes, I would prefer he just remember to wash the towels, but this is progress.)

 

I will say I've become kind of obsessed with turkish towels and between the resort box towel, the regular box towel and some I bought on Amazon, the reg box towel (the kind you'll get with this code) is the least soft. It's awesome and absorbent, but not really a comfy towel to wrap up in. That's why I'm on the fence about using the code. I think there are better versions out there for not too much money. The one I got on amazon was less than $20 and it's my favorite.

So I just submitted my post and saw some of my words were underlined in blue. I clicked on them and they took me to advertisements related to those words. That is soooo creepy. I never noticed that before. It almost looks like I out a link in or something, but I absolutely did not! Creepy.

If anyone is interested Popsugar Must Have is doing a flash sale of the Michael Stars hat (July box) on their website with free shipping. I was hoping that a Fall Style Box would have been up, but not yet.

So grab your eyeliner and take a look at five different ways to work the stunning eyeliner look in one go.     
    • Steaming at home: A good steamer does not have to be available at the spa. You can bring home the best facial steamer and have a great steaming session at the comfort of your home. All you have to do is to follow the right set of rules to get high-end results. Bring home the best facial steamer from the store. Read the user manual carefully. Before you turn it on, give your face a good wash and do not apply anything. Keep your hair away from the face by neatly wrapping it. Use normal tap water inside the steamer, turn it on, and wait for vapours to arise. Keep the steamer almost 6-8 inches away from your face. Align your face to get the steam vapours. Take the steam vapours for a minute and move your face away from it for half a minute. Continuously taking the steam over the face may leave your skin burnt. Start off your cleansing session and pull out all the black and whiteheads. Dab a clean towel to remove the water droplets on your face and then apply a good moisturizer. Choose a facial steamer with the quickest start-to-steam option. This makes it the best facial steamer. Have a steam session, not more than once in a week as over steaming your facial steam can make it dry or burn it. Moisturize skin immediately after a good steam session to trap moisture and make the skin hydrated.
