Pop Sugar Must Have: The January Edit

January is the perfect month to begin a new--cleansing your mind, body and soul in preparation for a fabulous year and a fresh start. I am proud to partner with Pop Sugar Must Have and bring you my opinion on this month's subscription box of amazingly wonderful goodies. 

I have subscribed to different brands and programs over the years, and this particular box really exceeded my expectations when it came to quality and variety. This month featured products sure to motivate and inspire the best 2017 ever!

Here's the rundown...

1. The Fresh A Peel Multi Acid Resurfacing Peel by Goldfaden, MD is beyond the BEST at-home {and in-office!} peel I've ever used. Many of you might not know this, but for the past five years I have suffered from melasma, which is a discoloration of the skin that can give you dark spots similar to sun spots. It can come from a combination of hormones, medication, environment + genetics, and it's darn stubborn to try and get rid of {just Google Brooke Burke and you'll understand the struggle!} I have tried lasers, creams, $$$ peels from plastic surgeons and dermatologists and the list goes on--never-ending and frustrating! Luckily, I use excellent makeup, but being a woman who loves Florida, the sun and a natural look--I despise having to go through that routine daily. This peel, in the short-term, is the answer I've been waiting for! Just a small dab of gel all over your face for 1-3 minutes...2-3 times a week...has the power to remove dead skin cells, which have given me a softer and brighter complexion. I also love that it is a natural skin care line that doesn't burn of irritate like other peels have. It rejuvenates the skin from the inside out, and also helps significantly with fine lines and wrinkles, so it's an ideal alternative to pediatric doses of Botox.

2. It's always nice to be able to re-purpose your paper products, which is why I adore the concept of May Designs Desk Calendar + Notecards. These beautiful designs come with a stand, ideal to place on your desk at home or in the office. I even thought this would be a lovely gift for a teacher! Not only can you monitor the month and date amidst such beautiful hand-painted florals, but you can also flip them over when the month ends and cut along the dotted lines to turn each page into a note for someone special. Win-win!

3. You can tell by my photos that I have A LOT of hair. I get it trimmed, thinned and everything in between {thanks to The Salon by Rebecca Juarez--if you're in the Disney area--she's the BEST!} which is why this Hair Wrap Towel by Daily Concepts was a life-saver. It has special microfibers that make frizz a thing of the past, as well as helping to reduce fly-aways, blow-dry time, etc. It comes with a reusable pouch perfect for the gym + vacation.

4. Everyone that's into yoga or any workout on a mat can attest to being in a position when it's sometimes hard to grip the mat and stay still and focused. The eQua Mat Towel from Manduka eliminates this problem with its absorbent, quick-drying {and slip-resistant!} towel that will hold you in place throughout the workout! The soft, suede-like feel makes for a quality {and stylish!} zen session.

5. Everyone loves a pick-me-up from time to time, and I believe in the power of the positive word, so the inclusion of Instant Happy Notes made me...well...happy! This little book of post-its give you 101 ways to put a smile on someone's face. Some of the messages include drawings and sayings like "Choose Happy Today," "Enjoy the Simple Things," and "Ten Second Vacation: Think About a Trip to the Beach!" 

6. I have become something of a "tea connoisseur" recently, so this tin of Peppermint Tea from Dean + Deluca is very soothing, with added digestive benefits that will keep you calm and refreshed. I've heard through "the grapevine" that regular tea drinking can cause you to lose up to 10 lbs. in a week if you're on your game--something I should definitely look into! ; )

7. *THE BONUS*, This delicious candle from Glade in the scent of Coconut + Beach Woods--simply divine. It's soy-based and part of a new line of multilayered home fragrances, the perfect addition to your home on a cold winter day! 

The best part of all is that readers of The Yellow Petunia can get $5 off their FIRST Must Have box by using the code SHOP5 at checkout {lucky you!}

Stay tuned for next month's edit, and if you already get the Must Have subscription--let me know your favorites!

Happy Tuesday. xx
