POPSUGAR Must Have May 2015 Review plus Gift With Purchase Coupon!

Got my May POPSUGAR Must Have box, and I’m happy to report that I’m already using most of the items ūüôā It’s always still such a great moment when I see this pink box on my doorstep; it’s definitely my favorite subscription box. I think they have got a fantastic formula down: 1 food item, 1 beauty item, 1 lifestyle/home item, 2-3 others.

POPSUGAR Must Have May 2015 Review plus Gift With Purchase Coupon!I¬†never have the resolve to go spoiler-free, so I always know what my box will contain. Maybe one of these days I’ll be able to resist peeking and actually surprise myself…

POPSUGAR Must Have May 2015 Review plus Gift With Purchase Coupon!Sister of Los Angeles Surf Sand Love Beach Towel | $40.00
I was so excited to receive a beach towel in my box! What could be more useful as Summer quickly approaches? I’ve already used it at the pool and plan to bring it with me on my next beach trip. The thing about towels is you really can’t have too many. I always bring extras thinking I won’t need them…and then I end up using them. And this one is really cute and cheerful!

Middle Kingdom Mini Plum Vase in Coral Red | $20.00
While I’m sad that there were no actual fresh flowers in my box (I wanted a bouqs.com gift card sooo badly!), I actually really like this bud vase. I don’t have any small vases and have been meaning to buy one forever, but it’s just something I’ve been putting off. I also appreciate that it’s boxed and ready for gifting, since this would be a really lovely hostess gift.

POPSUGAR Must Have May 2015 Review plus Gift With Purchase Coupon!The vase itself is well made and bright. It’s the perfect size for flowers that you pick yourself or petite bouquets. I never see vases in subscription boxes, so I gotta give props to POPSUGAR for thinking outside the box and bringing something new to the table!

POPSUGAR Must Have May 2015 Review plus Gift With Purchase Coupon!Kitsch Tri’d and True Y-Shaped Necklace | $32.00
This was the initial spoiler reveal and I’ve been itching to get my hands on it since the beginning! I’m excited to see a silver jewelry item for once, since they tend to lean heavily towards gold. It’s another item that is ready for gifting, and the packaging is actually super cute.

POPSUGAR Must Have May 2015 Review plus Gift With Purchase Coupon!It’s such a dainty piece of jewelry, which¬†is definitely my style. The Y-shape is more unique and interesting than a traditional pendant, so it’s sort of a minimal statement piece (for me). I think it would look really cute layered as well, and intend to rock this all Summer! Probably my favorite item from this month.

POPSUGAR Must Have May 2015 Review plus Gift With Purchase Coupon!Sage and Row Bare Shave Cream | $17.00
Such a pricey shave cream! I usually stick to drugstore stuff so this is a very luxurious product for me. The smell is lovely and not strong, and the cream has a very silky smooth texture. It’s supposed to be aloe-based compared to regular creams which are water-based, and will provide more moisture as a result.

POPSUGAR Must Have May 2015 Review plus Gift With Purchase Coupon!Batiste Dry Shampoo | $4.00
More dry shampoo! I have so much of this stuff, but like I’ve said numerous times, I won’t say no to more that works with my hair. Batiste is a great affordable one and it smells amazing too! I’m actually fine with receiving the mini version compared to the full sized, since it’s more useful to me if I can travel with it. I’ve started keeping some travel sized ones at the office too, is that really embarrassing?

POPSUGAR Must Have May 2015 Review plus Gift With Purchase Coupon!Hammond’s Candies McCraw’s Flat Taffy | $1.00
While I like taffy, this felt really random to me. I know each month they include some sort of food item, but it’s usually a more generous size and seems more tied in with the box.

POPSUGAR Must Have May 2015 Review plus Gift With Purchase Coupon!

Overall I enjoyed this month. A lot of the items are practical, which I definitely appreciate. I’m already getting lots of use out of the towel and shave cream. The total value for this box is $114.00. Already excited for June to get here!

Good news, the gift with purchase promo code still works! Use WELCOME to get a free Sorial Wallet on a Chain ($49.00 value) from the November 2014 box. Apply the code at checkout, and it should deduct $.40 from your subscription order to signify the promotion has been added to your box.

POPSUGAR Must Have Gift With Purchase CouponAnd if you’re wondering about what the June 2015 box will contain, we have one spoiler already.

POPSUGAR Must Have Gift With Purchase Coupon plus June 2015 Spoiler!

Each June box will contain a Quay Australia Mandate Sunglasses (a $45.00 value).¬†I’m looking forward to getting these and keeping them in my car. Hoping for some great Summer accessories in the next box!

Julep May 2015 Mystery Clutch Review plus Promo Code!

It’s been so long since I’ve¬†ordered¬†anything from¬†Julep¬†that I was confused when I saw the package sitting on my doorstep. My last¬†Mystery Box was in February, and I have such an extensive stash of nail polish that I can’t really justify ordering any more. But since I have the self control of a small child, I decided to get another mystery box when I saw that it was coming with a BRIKA designed pouch! Old habits die hard…

The May Mystery Box was $29.99 and came with the promise of $150+ worth of products, two exclusive colors, and a BRIKA + Julep designed pouch.

Julep May 2015 Mystery Clutch Review plus Promo Code!BRIKA + Julep Pouch | $?
Love the pattern on this! I pretty much ordered the box just for this pouch, and I have no regrets. It’s surprisingly well made and large enough to hold an iPad, and I anticipate getting tons of use out of this.

Julep May 2015 Mystery Clutch Review plus Promo Code!Marcella (weathered pink creme) | $14.00
Bea (lemonade creme) | $14.00
Brandis (taos turquoise creme) | $14.00

I like this trio of colors since they’re all such fun bright Summer hues. Wouldn’t they just be perfect for poolside pedis? I also appreciate that they aren’t sale colors, since Julep used to put a lot of their sale polish in mystery boxes. I’m also so relieved none of these are duplicates for me! Marcella is actually one of the exclusive new colors for this box, and they did a great job on the formula. It’s easy to apply and opaque in 2 coats.

Julep May 2015 Mystery Clutch Review plus Promo Code!Chatoya (bright platinum glitter top coat) | $14.00
Shayla (purple perennial full coverage micro-glitter) | $14.00

I can never get enough glitter in my life, and a good full coverage micro-glitter is hard to find. I’m pleased to say that Shayla has seriously great¬†formula. Very smooth application, opaque in one coat, and dries beautifully. Would absolutely recommend!!

Julep May 2015 Mystery Clutch Review plus Promo Code!Julep Lip Gloss in Vivid | $20.00
I was intially a little disappointed because of how dark this color is, but Julep’s lip glosses are actually really sheer. This gives a great burgundy wash of color and works surprisingly well with my skin tone.

Julep May 2015 Mystery Clutch Review plus Promo Code!Julep Length Matters Mascara | $24.00
I have no idea what happened to the photo I took of the mascara, but it seems to have randomly disappeared. Sorry about that! I haven’t tried Julep’s mascara before receiving this one, so I was definitely curious. The formula was pretty good, it adds great volume and the brush is easy to use. The results were decent but it still doesn’t displace my favorite mascaras! But all things considered, it’s a solid one.

Luna (light blue duochrome with jagged cut glitter) | $14.00
Since I used the promo code SPRINGFUN, I got to add a free polish of my choice. I went with Luna since it caught my eye when it first came out, but was only available as an add-on. I’m so glad I was able to snag it! The color is so ridiculously pretty!

Julep May 2015 Mystery Clutch Review plus Promo Code!

My total value before the¬†SPRINGFUN¬†bonus and not including the pouch is $114.00, and with the bonus is $128.00.¬†For the $150 value promise to ring true, the pouch is valued at $36, which I think is fair. I’m overall very pleased with this box!

Last time I checked, SPRINGFUN is still valid. Get a free nail polish color of your choice by adding it to your cart before applying promo code SPRINGFUN. It should deduct $11.20 from your cart, so you must be logged into your Maven account.

Birchbox May 2015 Review plus June 2015 Sample Options

Birchbox¬†box design have really been on a roll lately. I can’t remember the last time I got a regular plain brown box! This month’s collaboration was with Cupcakes and Cashmere by Emily Schuman, and the box is (expectedly) stunning. I love the colors and the gold foil and the simple pattern!

Birchbox May 2015 Review plus June 2015 Sample OptionsToo¬†pretty! It’s been such an amazing Spring season with the Birchbox design team, they’ve really hit it out of the ballpark.

Birchbox May 2015 Review plus June 2015 Sample OptionsBenefit The POREfessional | $4.23
I already use this stuff pretty religiously, so this is just another convenient travel size for me. I’ll never say no to more of my favorite products! If you haven’t tried POREfessional yet I would recommend it for people with large pores like me. It sort of fills them in and makes it way less noticeable, and has good staying power. Even in Houston’s humidity, this stuff stays put!

Birchbox May 2015 Review plus June 2015 Sample OptionsNaobay Oxygenating Cream Moisturizing | $14.17
Impressed by the size of this sample! More than half the full sized one. I’ve never tried anything from this brand before, but I like their minimalistic brand a lot and I am trying to get into more natural ingredient-conscious products lately. This is a really light moisturizer that absorbs quickly and doesn’t feel greasy at all.

Birchbox May 2015 Review plus June 2015 Sample OptionsMarcelle Clay Mask | $2.23
I’m surprised the full sized version of this mask is only $15! Maybe I’ve just gotten too used to the pricey stuff, but doesn’t $15 sound like a total steal? It doesn’t have quite the dramatic results of GlamGlow or other masks I’ve tried recently, but I imagine this is one that you would use more often since it’s less harsh. My skin definitely felt soft and clean afterwards!

Birchbox May 2015 Review plus June 2015 Sample OptionsLaura Geller Color Drenched Lip Gloss in Pink Lemonade | $6.33
Lip gloss is never something I’m all that excited about receiving, mostly because I’m more of a stain sort of girl, you feel me? I got the shade “Pink Lemonade”, which is sort of a frosted bubblegum pink. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look very good on me, so this sample is a miss.

Birchbox May 2015 Review plus June 2015 Sample OptionsAmika Perk Up Dry Shampoo | $3.00
I really like Amika’s dry shampoo, and even though I have SO much dry shampoo, I enjoy receiving ones that I know work with my hair and smell amazing. Seriously, how does all Amika stuff smell so good? I

Birchbox May 2015 Review plus June 2015 Sample OptionsThe overall value for May is $29.96, which is a little on the low side for¬†Birchbox. Nonetheless, I’m pleased with the items that I did receive. I’ll use everything except the lip gloss and the moisturizer will last me for a long time.

Now on to June’s sample choices!

Birchbox May 2015 Review plus June 2015 Sample OptionsImages above are full sized, but the Birchbox samples will be deluxe sized.

Your options for June are:

  • Coola Mango Body Sunscreen (SPF 50)
  • Supergoop Everyday Sunscreen (SPF 50)
  • Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels
  • Dr Jart+ Dermaclear¬†Microwater

Each June 2015 box will also contain a new Eyeko Fat Liquid Liner! It even looks like a full sized one, valued at $16.00. I really love the Eyeko Skinny felt tipped liners, so can’t wait to try their newest product!

You can also select the Guest Curated Box for June, which will contain:

  • Eyeko Fat Liquid Eyeliner
  • Real Chemistry 3-Minute Peel
  • Harvey Prince Hello Body Creme
  • Oribe Cote d‚ÄôAzure Fragrance
  • Davines Su Hair and Body Wash

What do you think? I love that there are 2 sunscreen samples to choose from, and I think I’ll try the Coola one! I really liked their BB cream texture and other products, so I’m hopeful about the sunscreen as well.

I just got my May box today (review coming soon!) and a June spoiler came out, so I’d call that a good subscription addiction day!

The June inspiration board came out a while ago, but now we also have an item spoiler!

POPSUGAR Must Have May 2015 Full Spoilers and June 2015 Sneak Peek

Each June box will contain a Quay Australia Mandate Sunglasses (a $45.00 value). What do you think?

POPSUGAR Must Have Gift With Purchase Coupon plus June 2015 Spoiler!

It’s been a while since I had a new pair of sunglasses, so I’m looking forward to it. They look cute and it seems like a lot of celebrities are wearing this brand. Plus they’re cheap enough that I won’t be heartbroken if I end up losing them or sitting on them (ugh, don’t remind me of how many I’ve lost this way…).

And it looks like the GWP coupon is still working!

We have the full spoilers for the May 2015¬†POPSUGAR Must Have¬†box super early (a blessing and a curse!), so now I have to sit back and try to wait patiently for my box to slowly move across the United States…

POPSUGAR Must Have May 2015 Full Spoilers and June 2015 Sneak Peek

I love it! It seems like a really fun and practical box to me. I’ll get so much use out of the beach towel, and I can never get enough shave cream and dry shampoo. I think the vase is a fun addition, maybe it will inspire me to keep more fresh flowers around.

May is already sold out, so if you sign up now you’ll be receiving the June box. Check out the inspiration for June 2015!

POPSUGAR Must Have May 2015 Full Spoilers and June 2015 Sneak PeekI’m excited for the “outdoor fun” part! Also curious as to what the “yoga warrior” might be referring to. If any of these appeal to you, I would try to sign up sooner rather than later: POPSUGAR has been selling out way ahead of time recently.

Another reason to sign up ASAP: the GWP code is still valid, so grab this awesome bonus gift while you can!
