PopSugar Must Have: May 2014 Review

The past few months I really enjoyed the products in my PopSugar Must Have box so I couldn’t wait for May’s box to arrive! The theme was essentially gearing up for summer and helping you prepare for bikini season and travels – all of which are important for this Florida girl!

PopSugar Must Have is a monthly subscription box that features top product picks from the PopSugar editors across multiple categories including home, fitness, beauty, food, and more, for $39.95 each month (slightly less if you purchase multiple months at once).

One Day Fat Blast
I understand why the One Day Fat Blast DVD ($10) would be included with summer just a few weeks away, but home workout videos are far from motivating to me. I do much better when I workout with friends, since having a workout buddy gives you the extra push you need. I think I’ll donate this one and stick to spin!

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics
The Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pool Boy Nail Lacquer ($10) is a beautiful shade of blue – a color I haven’t painted on my nails in well over a decade! I’m not sure if I’d stray from my standard pallet of reds, pinks and corals though – we’ll see!

Hi, I’m Skinny Skinny Sticks in Multi-Grain Sweet Onion
If you’re going to snack on some type of chip, Multi-Grain Sweet Onion Sticks ($4) are the way to do it. A much healthier option, these have been my go-to snack in the office since their arrival last week. This isn’t a brand I was familiar with but after researching, I’ve found a few other flavors that sound pretty delish!

Kerry Cassill Eye Mask
At first glance I wasn’t sure I’d get use out of it, but after opening and trying on the Kerry Cassil Eye Mask ($24), I’m really excited to get some use out of it on my upcoming travels! The material is super soft so I think it’ll make overnight flights a little more bearable!

Smell Bent St. Tropez Dispenser
I’m a little disappointed that the most expensive item in the box was perfume. The Smell Bent St. Tropez Dispenser ($45) has a sunscreen/beach smell and I sometimes avoid putting sunscreen on since I hate the smell so much. Wish it was something more fruity – or better smelling than sunscreen!

Citrus Zinger
I received a Citrus Zinger ($17) last year in a Fancy box, so I was a little bummed to have a repeat subscription item. But I am absolutely obsessed with this bottle and it’s color, so I don’t mind having a second one lying around. Oranges, lemons and limes are my favorite fruits to mash up and put in the bottom of this bottle, giving my water an added citrus flavor!

VBeaute Anti-Aging Lip Spread
I received Anti-Aging Lip Spread ($19) as a bonus item in May’s box since my PopSugar Special Edition Resort Box shipped later than expected (all subscriber’s to the limited edition box received it).     I really like this clear gloss, as it gives a unique tint for each user based on their pH balance, it’s almost like having a personalized gloss!

May’s PopSugar Must Have retailed out to $110 ($129 counting the bonus item from PopSugar’s Resort Box). I wasn’t too crazy about this month’s box – I probably would’ve skipped if I knew the contents ahead of time. I haven’t decided yet if I’ll continue with my subscription for June just yet. I might hold off until a coupon and/or spoiler pop up, although every time I unsubscribe, something amazing appears in boxes. Decisions, decisions!

What did you think of this month’s box?
