PopSugar Must Have Review- June 2015

PopSugar Must Have is my favorite subscription box. Each month the editors over at PopSugar choose “must have” items in a variety of categories- home, beauty, jewelry, accessories, food, books, fitness, and much more. Over the past year I have come to love many of the items I’ve received as a result.

Cost: $39.95 per month (use coupon code MUSTHAVE5 for $5 off your first box)

Here is what was inside the June box- all totaled, the value was $141.00. I love that PopSugar always takes into account the season and they do a great job of switching it up in terms of the types of items they send.

  • Quay Australia Mandate Sunglasses $45
  • In the Unlikely Event (book) by Judy Blume $28
  • Pacifica Enlighten Eye Brightening Shadow Palette $14
  • Yogitoes Peacock hBand $4
  • Spongelle Boxed Flowers-Fleur en Boite $16
  • SNAP Infusion SUPERCANDY $4
  • Sweet & Spark Gift Card $30

Here is the card that details the products…

Now, on to the goodies…

I love these sunglasses. They’re a matte black and work for my face. That’s the problem with sending sunglasses- there’s always a chance they won’t look good on you. I lucked out and can’t wait to wear them! What a fun item to get in a summer box.

Another always popular item- eye shadow palettes. Pacifica is a natural and cruelty-free brand, and while I appreciate they are free of most harsh chemicals, I don’t actually love their formula. The pigmentation just isn’t my favorite. I do like the colors though and think it’s a great summer/gold/shimmery palette- I will probably end up gifting this.

I LOVE that they included a book! This isn’t something I see often in subscription boxes and as an avid reader I am stoked. (and a hardcover book at that!) Perfect for summer reading…

A new twist on soap on a rope- this is a multi-use body gel in a scrubber/sponge. It smells awesome, like papaya.

DSC03729 DSC03731I can’t get overly excited about this…it’s a head band. It’s supposed to be for yoga, but could obviously be for anything. I think it’s super absorbent.

These are interesting- gummies that have B vitamins, electrolytes and hydrate you. They taste good for sure, but I  wouldn’t go out of my way to buy them. I guess I’m just spoiled though because PopSugar notoriously sends amazing snacks as food items…

DSC03741This company sells vintage jewelry- and from the looks of it they have some great stuff. The card is worth $30.00 so I will definitely use it.

DSC03723All in all I felt this was a good box. Not my absolute favorite, but I like it. The sunglasses and book are my favorite, and everything else I’ll use. Hopefully I find a cool piece of jewelry too.

    1. June is sold out- they sell out really quickly. But sign-up for July! It’s a great box…so many fun things. They releases July spoilers/hints- Beach Days, Fourth of July, Easy Travel, and Summer Heat.

      I have a $5 coupon if you want it for your 1st box 🙂
