PopSugar Must Have: May 2017


It’s PopSugar time! The PopSugar Must Have box is a monthly subscription ($40/month or less if you make a 3, 6, or year long commitment)  that sends subscribers full-size versions of the season's must-have beauty, fashion, and home products. I’ve subscribed to a lot of boxes in my time and the PopSugar Must Have box is my all-time favorite by a mile! If you’re looking for a box that gives you a ton of value and awesome products, this is the box for you! 


Nicely Noted: Exclusive Must Have Card Collection | Retail: $17.50

Cards are always something I appreciate receiving but not something I really get excited over. I always forget to have cards stocked at home so it’s nice to have these on hand for when a birthday or wedding rolls around but they’re just not a product I get super excited about receiving in a box!


Lipstick Queen: Mornin’ Sunshine | Retail $25

This lipstick is a yellow lipstick that changes to a personalized coral shade that is supposed to be different for every user. I was pretty excited about this product since I’d seen it tested out on a couple of blogs before but knew that it was probably too good to be true! I’m not typically one for coral shades and unfortunately, this shade wasn’t my favorite. Despite it being a custom shade for each person, I didn’t feel that it was a shade that was flattering for my skin tone, however, it was still a lot of fun to try out this trend! 


Samantha Faye: Inspiration Cuff | Retail $60

For me, this product was the superstar of the box! This cuff bracelet is so cute and I love the little message it displays. I’ve been on the hunt for a good cuff style bracelet and this came at the perfect time! 


Tocca: Voyage Montauk 3oz Candle | Retail $20

This candle is super cute but I’m not the biggest fan of the scent. It’s a cucumber-y scent that I think is better left with on cucumbers, not candles! I’ll probably end up lighting it in my bathroom, where all of my other strange smelling candles end up living :P


Southern Culture Artisan Foods: Strawberry Cream Muffin Mix | Retail $7.99

This strawberry muffin mix was a cute little addition to the box! I love that PopSugar always tries to throw in a product that is cozy or home-y. Although I’m not the biggest fan of strawberry muffins, having this mix will give me a great excuse to spend a cozy at home baking day!


Swing Design: Essex Silver Plate Frame | Retail $13

This frame is elegant and beautiful but again, not necessarily a product I was super excited to receive. I already have a ton of frames that look pretty similar to this one! Maybe I’ll get more excited about the frame once I find the perfect picture to fill it!


Final Verdict: Nothing really excited me about this month’s box except the bracelet. Normally, when I receive a PopSugar box, I spend the whole box opening process ooh-ing and ahhh-ing because I’m so excited about the products, but this one was just a kind of “meh” reaction for me. With how consistent PopSugar usually is, however, one dud of a box is not going to make an unsubscriber out of me. 

If you’re on a budget (like I always am!), I highly recommend looking for coupons or deals on this box. PopSugar runs periodic promotions that are always nice to tack onto an already great subscription box. What did you think of your May PopSugar Must Have box? Leave me a comment, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
