I just received my May PopSugar Must Have Box! The inspiration behind the items for this month’s box were: glowing skin, Mother’s Day, fresh flowers, beach bum, colorful and California sun.
Not familiar with PopSugar Must Have Boxes? PopSugar Must Have Boxes are lifestyle subscription boxes geared towards women. The boxes include items related to beauty, fitness, fashion, home etc. In addition to their monthly box, they also offer Special Edition boxes which are variably priced and have a specific theme.

Now let’s take a look at what came in the box!
Item #1: Sisters of Los Angeles Surf Sand Love Beach Towel
I am hoping that we will spend a lot of time at the beach this Summer and if that happens then this towel will get a lot of use. But even if we don’t become beach bums, the kids typically use beach towels after their showers because Chris and I greedily save the nice towels for ourselves. We are the parents, we can do that.
On a side note, this beach towel retails for $40, that’s right 4 0! I personally would never pay $40 for a beach towel. The ones we have purchase typically fall around the $10 mark if memory serves me correctly. This towel does seem to be a bit fluffier than the ones that we have but still.
Retail Price: $40
Item# 2: Middle Kingdom Mini Plum Vase in Coral Red
This bud vase is very cute and now has a home on my desk. PopSugar lists the retail value of the vase to be $20 but I did find a different colored one on Amazon for $17 but that’s not much of a difference in price.
Retail Value: $20
Item #3: Kitsch Tri’d & True Y-Shaped Necklace
I knew that this necklace was coming in the box as it was released as a spoiler. I don’t mind spoilers as it is fun to see one of the items and it helps to build the anticipation in my opinion. Unless of course you don’t care for the spoiler then that takes away the fun I suppose.
In this case, I was very excited to get the necklace as it is definitely me! Now that I finally have the necklace, I like it just as much in person and I can’t wait to wear it.
Retail Value: $32
Item #4: Sage & Row Bare Shave Cream
Shaving is my least favorite task but it must be done…. And thus I will definitely use this! Would I ever spend $17 on shave cream? Probably not. Unless it promised to shave away my hair forever. But that’s the fun of PopSugar! I get to try things that I normally wouldn’t purchase!
Retail Value: $17
Item #5: Batiste Dry Shampoo
I am probably more excited about this dry shampoo than the average PopSugar subscriber. I’ve been wanting to try dry shampoo for a while but just hadn’t gotten around to it. I am thinking it may be the answer to my sweaty hair issue from my early morning workouts. Just don’t tell my co-workers that I don’t shower after those workouts. It’s our little secret.
Retail Value: $4
Item #6: Hammond’s Candies McGraw’s Flat Taffy
I love taffy and this taffy was delicious! And yes, it is already in my belly. It was research for the blog. I had to do it.
Retail Value: $1
Overall I really liked the items in this month’s box as I know that I will use everything that I received. I did however find the theme this month to be not as cohesive as other month’s but really that’s not a big deal to me.
My favorites from this month’s box are the necklace and the dry shampoo but again, everything will get used.
