May 2016 PopSugar Must Have Box Review (+ Huge Discount)

My May 2016 PopSugar box came super late this month, so I haven’t been able to post it until now. Compared to the last few PopSugar boxes, the May box was pretty disappointing. Still, I thought the box was worth what I paid for it, and that’s all that matters to me.

PopSugar is having a huge sale on their subscriptions until tomorrow, so if you are curious about PopSugar Must Have boxes, now is the time to try it out since they average about two sales a year. Check the bottom of this post for all the code details.

Note: This post contains referral links. If you decide to purchase a PopSugar box, I would love it if you used my link.

Bluma Project Capri Bracelets ($44)
I am not a huge fan of the tassel trend, but these bracelets are actually pretty cute! I love that they are made by artisans in the Philippines.

Spongelle Spongology Body Buffer ($20) 
I usually don’t love when PopSugar repeats brands, but I really like Spongelle. The smell is a little stronger than I like, but I will definitely use it.

Kocostar Foot Therapy Foot Exfoliation Wrap ($9.50)
I’ve never done a foot exfoliation wrap before, but I think it will be fun to try out before summer starts.

Happy Spritz Breathe Deeply Spray ($25)
I am allergic to essential oils, so I didn’t try to spray this. I will be passing it on to a friend, though!

Gaiam Foldable Yoga Mat ($24.95)
Since this yoga mat is designed for travel, it is thinner than regular yoga mats. I can’t think of a reason I need a travel yoga mat, but it will also make a good gift.

JimmyBar! Peanut Butter Clutter Bar ($2.49) 
Chris loves getting bars in my PopSugar boxes, and I think he will like this one. It is made with only simple ingredients: dates, peanut butter, crisp brown rice, peanuts, almonds and honey.

Special Extra: Hint Caffeine Kick Water ($1.69)
I’m not sure if Chris and I are brave enough to try water with cayenne pepper in it, but it’s an interesting concept.

Special Extra: Revlon Volume Length Magnified Mascara ($9) 
I am always up for trying a new mascara, so I was excited to see this one in the box.

As I mentioned above, PopSugar is currently having a huge sale on its subscriptions. You can get $10 off a one-month subscription with the code SPRING10, $20 off a three-month subscription with the code SPRING20, and $50 a six-month subscription with the code SPRING50.

What do you think about the May 2016 PopSugar box? What is your favorite item?


  1. this sounds like such a great box! that foot wrap sounds perfect for summer and those bracelets look super cute! i actually love water with cayenne but if you don't like spicy things or if there's a lot in there it can be hard to drink! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  2. Hmm.. I think you're right. This box was a little disappointing compared to your past boxes. Still, it's pretty cool to get all that quality stuff for a low price! A foot exfoliate sounds really awesome!

  3. I don't like it when boxes repeat the same brands or products either! That's the whole point of getting a subscription box, to try new products and brands. I don't know if I'd be brave enough to try the cayenne pepper water either! If y'all do try it out I want to know what you think!

  4. I've heard of the Popsugar box, but never looked into it! I just committed to the FabFitFun yearly subscription or else I would do this one as well. Looks like some interesting stuff, but sucks that they repeated some brands, but glad you liked most of the stuff!

  5. A foot exfoliator?! Sounds intriguing! You'll have to let us know what it's like.

  6. I love that Spongelle Spongology Body Buffer looks very interesting. It looks like a good sponge!

  8. Really great value in this box!! That mascara sounds great and the foot therapy too - perfect before your feet live in sandals! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  9. that yoga mat is pretty cool, but i never travel with yoga mats, so.... lol. that mascara sounds cool, i am always up for a new mascara lol

  10. Oh man you're allergic to essential oils?! All of them?!

  11. I am a girl for that i know that all kind of wear love to wear heels. But for a long time wearing heels are not so good idea. I am very happy to see that site because this lotion are very helpful to wear heels. Foot massage machine is also a another best solution for relief pain.

  12. I just searched to see if you're still getting the Pop Sugar Must Have box! I already get Ipsy every month but your previous Pop Sugar boxes looked great - I'm thinking about going for it. Do you still get them?
