PopSugar Must Have Box- May Edition

By  |  3 Comments

I’m late to posting this (I got it about a week ago) but I did want to share the PopSugar Must Have Box for May. This is the only monthly subscription box I get, and I have been since August, and it’s seemed to be either a hit or a huge miss (but I imagine that is most subscription boxes). This month’s was not bad, so I thought I’d share!


popsugarmaypopsugarmayPopSugar Bag: I remember when PopSugar first announced they were starting a monthly subscription box, they called it the must have bag and every month was going to have some sort of bag in it. This lasted maybe 2 or 3 months before they changed the name, so I was surprised to see a bag in this month’s box! 


The Modern Cocktail- Modern Margaritas: Chelsea and I were trying to figure out what was so modern about these. Basically, they are little bottles of flavored margarita mix and rimming crystals. They each make one glass, so either you can try them all and get wastey faced, or find a friend and share. $8


Kooringal Giselle Mid Brim Hat: This hat is “crushable”. which means you can basically crumble it up and throw it in a bag and it will stay that way. Interesting in theory, but as you can see from the photo that kinda means its difficult to get all the kinks out. $28


The Original BeautyBlender and BlenderCleanser: Ahh, the highlight of the box. I have never used an authentic Beautyblender, so this was a treat! Granted, I kinda sorta ruined it this weekend when I used it to paint my face and neck and chest gray for comicon, but I haven’t cleaned it yet, so I am really thankful they included the cleanser as well. $24


Way Better Snacks Simply Sweeet Potato Tortilla Chips: I just noticed the extra E in sweet and its bugging me. Anyways, these are freaking delicious. They Sprout their grains and seeds to increase the nutrients, and theres loads of good things like omega 3’s in a serving. I’m a fan. $3


Charm & Chain $30 off Card: Jewelry Site! I will use this for sure. 


Pacifica Natural Lip Color Quench Lip Tint: This is a nice, moisturizing lip tint. I love this because my lips have been ultra lame lately and have been chapped like crazy, so I’m not about to turn down another lip product! $7


Questions I Ask when I want to Talk about Myself Deck: I love Mindy Kaling, and opening this month’s box and seeing this made me so sad about The Office. This is a deck of 50 cards that each have a topic on them to spark up a conversation and have a story from her about each question. I’m not sure if I would ever use these (I’ve heard they’re just excerpts from her book) but they are interesting to read. $15

The rough total value of this box comes out to $115, which is a pretty good deal considering the box is $35 a month. I’m definitely happy with this box and excited for June’s.. hopefully it has more summer things! :)

Available for $35/month from PopSugar.

    This box looks fun! And of better quality stuff than the other boxes I’ve seen… I’m tempted to try it.

    If you like Mindy Kaling and you haven’t yet you should read her book. It’s really funny and a quick read. :)
