Popsugar Must Have Mini June 2016 Review and Coupon Code

This is the third Popsugar Must Have Mini box by Popsugar. I've been subscribed from the beginning and I think this might be my favorite one yet. I like both products included but I haven't yet decided about how "worth it" I think it is.
This is a fun box which is supplemental to the regular size Popsugar Must Have box. The Mini will have two items with a value of at least $30. Interestingly, I took a recent survey and one of the questions asked was if there was a discount for purchasing both sizes, would you get the Mini? I'd love that!

The Cost: $18.95/month

What You Get: The monthly MINI box will feature two similarly themed full-sized products that will complement the regular monthly Must Have Box. The monthly mini subscription box will include products worth over $30.

Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Satin Lip Cream in Blush- This is a pretty neutral color. It actually seems to be the color of my lips but it does add some shine. I like it a LOT better than their liquid lipsticks which (in my experience) smelled so bad they were basically un-usable. Blech! This does not have the same problem, thankfully.

And it's a great color for me. I'm wearing it now. It glides on nice and smooth and has very, very little stickiness. I can't attest to longevity yet but this swatch on my hand wiped off instantly. So we'll see!
Value: $24
Baggu Medium 3D Zip in Sailor Stripe- You might not know this but I'm obsessed with Baggu. I might have a slight addiction. Sailor Stripe is my favorite pattern but I do have other ones with elephants on them and I gave a llama one to my MIL for Christmas. I'd really like a cat one, though. I use the regular bags for literally everything. Groceries, change of clothes, shoes, computer gear. If it'll fit, it goes in.
This is one I don't have. It's a zip pouch for traveling. It'll fit a pair of shoes or undies or whatever you want to put in it.
If you don't know what to do with it, they have some ideas for you. I can guarantee you, this will be used for one of the above on my next camping trip. :)
Value: $10

VERDICT: So the value is $34 which is in keeping with their promise of over $30. It still doesn't even come close to the value of the regular size box which is double the price but usually triple the value. I think it's definitely a fun supplemental box but if you were trying to choose between one or the other, I'd get the regular size. Save up two months worth of the Mini and just get the regular one. I can't deny that the Mini is fun (it is!) but it's not really wowing on the value.

If you'd like to sign up for either the Mini or the regular Popsugar Must Have box, you can do that here. If you choose the regular box you can use coupon code REFER5 or MUSTHAVE5 to get $5 off your first box!

So what do you think? If Popsugar offered a discount for subscribing to both, would you do it? How much of a discount would it need to be for you to consider it?

  1. It's really random, but my most favorite shopping bag is a Baggu bag, too. :)

    1. Hooray! I'm not the only one! :D I love them! They're the perfect size and hold SO much.
