Pop Sugar Must Have May 2015 Subscription Box Review

Maybe it’s just me, but it seems a bit crazy that it’s already May. I feel like it wasn’t too long ago that we were longing for spring, and now we’re almost half way through it! Without hesitation, here’s what I got in my Pop Sugar Box this month.

Sisters of Los Angeles Surf Sand Love Beach Towel- $402015-05-18 07.50.43

While most people might not be terribly excited about a towel, I am! Surprisingly, being from the beach, it’s a shame to say, I don’t actually have a beach towel! I don’t know how I’ve managed, but I realized that was the case when I saw this one. So now I have the perfect thing to take with me to the pool during all these hot days we’re having. I’m not a fan of yellow, but I actually like this one, and having it means I don’t have to go buy myself a towel for the summer.

Middle Kingdom Mini Plum Vase in Coral Red- $20 2015-05-18 07.48.31 2015-05-18 07.48.52

I actually really love this. I’m really into flower vases lately, and this one will go perfectly on my little café table!

Kitsch Tri’d & True Y-Shaped Necklace- $322015-05-18 07.47.01 2015-05-18 07.47.41

This necklace was packaged so beautifully. It came in a jewelry box with it’s brand on the front, and packaged on a cute card that resembled a post card. I don’t wear silver necklaces often, but I’m definitely not opposed to them. I think it was a good thing for them to add this silver piece into the box, since so many people do prefer silver to gold (I’m not one of those people). Unfortunately, my necklace had a small knot in the top of the chain…it’s not the end of the world, but I know it’s there, so I won’t wear it until I get it out. And right now, I’m too lazy to get it out, so it might be a while before I put this to use.

Sage & Row Bare Shave Cream- $17 2015-05-18 07.49.26

I’ve never heard of this brand before, but I’m excited to try something different when it comes to shaving creams. I usually stick with the typical drug store brands for shaving cream, mostly because I never think to look for anything else when it comes to shaving. This one smells like aloe and lavender and reminds me of a beachy scent. I haven’t tested it out yet, but I hope it’s awesome, since it is so expensive for a small 3.5oz tube!

Batiste Dry Shampoo- $4

I already love Batiste dry shampoo and I have the original scent in my bathroom right now. I haven’t tried this cherry flavor before, but when I used it the other day when I first got this box, I really liked the way it smelled. This will definitely come in handy for me when I travel

Hammond’s Candies McCraw’s Flat Taffy- $1 2015-05-18 07.51.05

I haven’t tried this taffy before, but I’ve always heard great things about Hammonds candy. I also love saltwater taffy, as referenced in this post. According to the back of this package, I received the “rainbow” flavor. Not sure what that’s supposed to taste like, but I guess I’ll find out soon enough.

Overall Thoughts on the May Box:2015-05-18 07.52.03

I like this box. I’m not in love with it, and nothing in it really wow-ed me, but I’ll definitely put the majority of it to use. I do feel as if they needed to add a discount card or some sort of promotion to one of the brands to really make the box feel complete.

Value of the Box: $114.002015-05-18 07.48.02

In terms of their inspiration for this month, I think they really touched on each of the topics they listed, however, I can see people getting slightly upset that it mentions Mother’s Day if they received their box after Mother’s Day (I received mine the Thursday after Mother’s Day). I’m definitely still excited to see what June has in store, even though they already have a spoiler out for Quay sunglasses.  I’m hoping to see some sea salt spray for my hair, and more food!

Bows and Arrows,

Lynda
