I have been a subscriber to the Popsugar Must Have Box since November 2014. I finally decided to review these and let my readers see this wonderful subscription box for themselves! Popsugar Must Have Box ships one box each month for $39.95. In NC, I pay sales tax, so my box is $42.75. I’d really advocate signing up for this box if you love getting trendy surprises in the mail each month and the monthly fee does not seem like too much of an opportunity cost. I will admit that some months are much better than others, but I have never received a box that did not have at least one item I was really excited about trying! I also love that when I go boutique shopping, because of Popsugar, I have tried many items they have for sale at a discounted price!
I want to show you the great items I received in my June box so you can see for yourself why Popsugar Must Have is one of my FAVORITE subscription boxes!
As you can see above, these boxes give lots of items for your money. There is typically an accessory, a food item, and a beauty product in each of my boxes. Other frequent additions are books, makeup, and gift cards.
Each box comes with a card that describes the items in the box and assigns them a retail value. I will tell you my feelings about each item and the retail price below.
1) Quay Australia Mandate Sunglasses $45
Popsugar usually releases at least one spoiler prior to the box being sent out and these sunglasses were the spoiler for June. I was not too excited about them because I tend to be picky about glasses since all frames do not look nice on my face. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I tried these on. They look nice and while they will not be my go-to sunglasses, it is always nice to have an extra pair in the car. After wearing them for a while, my only complaint is that they do not offer much sun protection on the sides of your face.
2) Judy Blume’s In the Unlikely Event $27.95
I’m so excited to get the new Judy Blume novel. It has been a long time since she released Summer Sisters and I cannot wait to see what her new book is all about. Truth be told, I prefer reading books on my iPad now, but my mom wants to read this book too, so I can pass along the hard copy when I finish.
3) Pacifica Enlighten Eye Brightening Shadow Palette $14
I rarely wear eye shadow, so this was not the most exciting item in the box for me. I think the colors are beautiful, but I have been trying to declutter my makeup drawer, so I passed this along to my co-worker’s daughter who is a budding makeup artist. I know she will enjoy this item as it is meant to be enjoyed and it feels good to be able to share an item with someone you know will love it! That is part of the beauty of the Popsugar Must Have box: All of the items are great quality, so if they are not your cup of tea, they make great presents for your friends.
4) Yogitoes Peacock hBand $4
This headband has already come in handy during my workouts. It is great to have something to keep the bangs at bay. If you practice yoga, it can double as an eye mask during Savasana, according to the card.
5) Spongelle Boxed Flowers-Fleur en Boite $16
I cannot wait to try this papaya yuzu body wash infused buffer. I have been saving it for when we go on our next vacation because it contains multiple uses and will be a little luxury to add to the trip. I think this is a really neat product and I’m excited that it was in my box!
6) SNAP Infusion SUPERCANDY $4
This candy reminds me a of cross between Sour Patch Kids and sugar-encrusted Gummy Bears, but the main difference is that it is packed with B Vitamins, antioxidants, and electrolytes. This may be a good option for little ones with a sweet tooth. Popsugar has introduced me to so many neat food products. Who would have thought there is vitamin candy on the market!
7) Special Extra: Sweet & Spark $30 Gift Card
Sweet & Spark is a company that curates vintage jewelry pieces and sells them to the public. I used my gift card towards the purchase of the long necklace below. I think this will be a fun piece for Fall and I love that it is unique. The best thing about this gift card was that it got me in to finding fun vintage jewelry pieces on my own, so expect to see future posts about my growing vintage jewelry collection!
So, what did you think of the June Popsugar Must Have Box? This box had a value of $110.95 plus a $30 gift card. If you redeem the gift card, the value increases to $140.95, which is not too bad for a $40 box. My favorite items were the book, gift card, and body-wash infused sponge.
