POPSUGAR Must Have May Box Review

Although I already knew what was rumored to be in the May POPSUGAR Must Have box, I couldn't open it fast enough when it showed up at my door a couple of days ago. I really like my POPSUGAR Must Have boxes and while this one is not my top favorite, it certainly is a great box. Take a look at all these goodies:

This month's POPSUGAR Must Have theme is around getting ready for summer, for parties at home or outside - quite appropriate I thought. Here are the details of everything included:

PopSugar Logo Reusable Bag (~$1)
This was the first item that popped up when I opened the box. While on the smaller side, this bag is definitely going to be used. I always carry a reusable bag in my handbag, just in case.

Must Have Beauty:

Pacifica Color Quench Lip Tint ($9.84)
I'm always (like ALWAYS) excited to get lip balms, so I was very pleased with this Pacifica Lip Tint. I got the Guava Berry color. I like Pacifica products, but I've never tried their lip products before. After wearing it for the last couple of days, I can say it feels great and the color is the perfect combination of sheer and tint, very natural - definitely a winner.

Must Have Fashion:
Kooringal Giselle Mid Brim Hat ($27.99)
This was one of the items I wasn't too sure about - I already have hats for the summer and I prefer light colors for a beach hat. However, I am surprised at how elegant and comfy this hat is. The wire on the brim makes it work. I received the graphite color.

Must Have Fashion:
$30 Charm & Chain Gift Card
Charm and Chain is an online jewelry store, offering pieces from more than 50 jewelry designers.  This is a $30 gift card off any purchase and that I thought was really neat - no minimum purchases requirements, etc. I'm still deciding if I want to choose something for myself or keep the card for a gift. 

Must Have Entertainment:
Questions I Ask When I Want to Talk to Myself Cards ($13.45)
I do like getting books and the like in my boxes. These are conversation cards about 50 interesting, to say the least, topics you can discuss with your friends. 

Must Have Beauty:

The Original BeautyBlender Set ($21.99)
The set includes the beauty-blender and the blender-cleanser. I don't have a BeautyBlender  but obviously everyone is raving about it - its unique shape and texture helps you apply make up with a breeze. POPSUGAR sent out an email with a video showing how to use that beauty must have. This was the second item that I wasn't overly excited about receiving but after doing a bit more research, I think I might actually like this tool a lot.

Must Have Food:

The Modern Cocktail Modern Margarita Set (~$8)
Though I haven't heard of this brand before, I think the idea of portioned pre-made girly cocktails that also include the rimming crystals in the pack is great and very convenient. I like the packaging, too. I do think having those chilled for a girls night in would be fun. 

Special Extra: Must Have Food:

Way Better Snacks ($3.45)
I got the Sweet Potato variety and I was pretty sure I would like it as I like anything sweet potato. These chips were really tasty and healthy, as well.

My verdict: I am definitely pleased with this month's POPSUGAR Must Have box. The total value of the box came to $115.75 which is great given the $35 paid for it. I liked the variety of the items and the fact I got to try some new brands. My favorite "must have's" this month are the Pacifica Lip Tint and the Charm & Chain Gift card.
