Popsugar Must Have May 2014

Rating: Like It!!!
Cost: $39.95/month

I feel very lucky because it's my birthday tomorrow and my May Popsugar Must Have box arrived today, just in time for the big day. I thought about waiting to open it, but I couldn't wait to see what was included this month. I've been loving the last few months, so I was hoping this month would be great too!

The May box was all about summer! Here was the first look.

And here is everything that was included.

The Must Have Home item included was Kerry Cassill Eye Mask. This was designed exclusively for Popsugar Must Have and is made with soft voile cotton. I really like the fabric, but I don't use eye masks. My almost 2 year old daughter tires me out enough and no sleep mask is required for me to get a good nights rest. I didn't remove it from the packaging because I'm unsure whether I will keep this and try it out or gift it to a friend.

The Must Have Beauty product included was Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pool Boy Nail Lacquer. I love this color and can't wait to do my next manicure/pedicure in this. It's also 100 percent vegan and cruelty free!

Another Must Have Beauty product included was Smell Bent St Tropez Dispenser. When I opened my Popsugar box I could smell this right away and it made me think of a sandy beach. I loved it and couldn't wait to spray this on me. When I opened the smaller box the perfume was in, it smelled a bit strong. I sprayed it on me and it stayed strong smelling (more like a flowery perfume than the beach). I wanted the scent to fade to the beachy smell that entered the room when I opened the box, but it did not. I'm so disappointed in this because I was looking for a summer scent I love, but this does not work on me at all. It gave me an instant headache, even though it smelled great when I opened the box.

The Must Have Fitness item included was a Tone It Up DVD. Let's face it, I buy these workout DVDs and they sit on my movie stand collecting dust. I have every intention of using them, but never do. I'd like to think that I'll use this, but I'll probably just add it to my collection.

The Must Have Home item included was a Zing Anything Citrus Zinger. I love this water bottle that you can infuse fruit into. I can't wait to try this! This was my favorite item included in the box this month.

The final Must Have Food item included was Hi I'm Skinny Sticks Multi-Grain Sweet Onion. These have 40% less fat than potato chips and 15g of whole grains per serving. I always love finding healthy snacks that taste good. I haven't tried these yet, but I'm excited to.

If you ordered the Popsugar Must Have Special Edition Resort box, you also received Vbeaute Lip Spread Anti-Age Tinting Lip Gloss as a bonus because of the delay in shipping. I don't own anything from this brand, but I can't resist lip gloss and I'm looking forward to trying this.

I wasn't as happy with the May box as I was with the past couple boxes. I wanted to love the perfume and if I did, I probably would have loved this box, but it just doesn't work for me. I also most likely won't be using the sleep mask or workout DVD. This box was mostly misses for me, but I do love the water bottle and nail polish (just not sure they are worth $39.95 to me). I'm hoping June will be more my taste!

  1. I wouldn't have really liked this box. The stuff was good for gifts for others but I wouldn't have wanted most if it lol. Happy bday!

  2. Wow May's box looks great! I would love that Lip Spread.
