Popsugar MustHave May 2016 Review and Coupon Code

The May 2016 Popsugar Must Have box was fairly heavy when I picked it up off the porch. I wasn't expecting it and I almost let it slip through my fingers. As it turned out, it wouldn't have mattered because nothing was breakable, or if it was, it was packed well. Plus it was all cushioned by a large blue yoga mat by Gaiam!

This box focuses on beauty, style, fitness and food, so you get a little of everything in each box. Even home items! I like it that way. It's funny because when they don't have a food item, I get a little sad. This box did have food although it wasn't nearly as unhealthy as I was hoping for.

The Cost: $39.95/month.

What You Get: Full size, premium products in Home, Fashion, Fitness, Beauty and Food categories!

Bluma Project Capri Bracelets- This is a set of two stretchy, beaded bracelets. They're made in Guatemala and consist of glass and 24k gold beads. These are pretty cute and I appreciate the stretchiness.
I've pretty much been wearing them nonstop.
Value: $44
Kocostar Foot Therapy- Yesss, Asian beauty in a regular subscription! This is a foot peeling treatment. Slap these babies on your feet, wait for an hour, then prepare for all your calluses and dead skin to peel off.
Okay, it's not immediate. It can take up to ten days before you notice it. I used this brand and seriously... it works. Your feet will be horrifying zombie feet for maybe a week while it's peeling but once it's done you'll have the softest babiest feet you ever saw. Just keep in mind that if you've built up calluses, they will disappear. So wearing some of your favorite shoes can be a little painful on the new, uncallused skin.
Oh and a small word of advice. Once you put these on, put regular socks over them because they are incredibly slippery. I almost took a header right down the stairs.
Value: $10
Spongelle Spongology Body Buffer- So Popsugar sent us a different Spongelle product and I loved it. LOVED it! This one is different, it's bigger and looks like it's more focused on exfoliation. It's also infused with requisite soap, so you don't even need to think! And all the exfoliation with get your skin ready for some self tanner application. At least that's what I'm going to be doing afterwards.
Value: $20
Gaiam Foldable Yoga Mat- I don't do yoga so this item isn't as awesome for me as it would be for others. However, I'm sure I can find a good use for it one of these days.
Value: $25
Hink Kick Cayenne Lemon- This is actually a special extra! I'm not sure about this. I just put it in the fridge so I can have the best possible experience when trying it. It has caffeine in it but I'm just not sure about the cayenne... So weird! Update: No. While I love the lemon flavor, I don't love the mouth burn! Who would drink this!?

Happy Spritz Breathe Deeply- Ahh! I think I can use this! I contacted them to find out if it had lavender oil in it because it just says Peppermint, Eucalyptus "and other essential oils." I don't like it when they don't put a full ingredients list on things like this. People have allergies, you know! I was seriously thrilled to hear that there is NO lavender in this mixture! It smells amazing and invigorating. I think I'm going to take this camping and use it as a body spritz. Don't bugs hate eucalyptus?
Value: $25
JimmyBar! Peanut Butter Clutter Clean Snack Bar- Blech. This is made with dates. I don't like bars made with figs and dates. I wish I wasn't such a picky eater sometimes.
Value: $2.49

Special Extras!

Half Hitch Goods- A $10 gift card at halfhitch.com.

Revlon Volume + Length Mascara- Nice! Free mascara is always great. I've never used this kind but I'll try it.

VERDICT: So besides the fact that I likely won't use the yoga mat, this box has some pretty great stuff. Plus, who doesn't love getting special extras! I'm loving the Spongelle, the Foot Therapy and the Breathe Deeply spritz. I probably wont use the extra gift card and I'm not likely to eat the Jimmy Bar although my husband will. The bracelets are pretty cute and easy to wear, not to mention they're blue. My favorite color besides pink. I'm happy with this box. It's my last one in my prepaid subscription I bought at Christmas, sadly. But there's no way I'm unsubscribing!

If you'd like to subscribe to Popsugar Must Have, you can do that here. Make sure to use a code for $5 off! Use REFER5, MUSTHAVE5 or SAVE5. I think all three are still working.
