I won’t be using this for dry cleaning (I read “dry clean only” as a washing machine challenge) but it will be great to pack for traveling to keep my laundry separate from clean clothes.

Verdict: I’m pretty happy with this box – there are fewer items than previous Pop Sugar boxes, but I like all the items that are included – so it’s a win for me! What did you think of the April Pop Sugar Must Have box?

  1. GET50 brings total down to 18.86 Supposed to be for people who have cancelled, but I had to create a new account to use the code. Valid through May 10.

    I think maybe the discount is an “I’m sorry” because it seems like a ton of people are unhappy with the past few boxes, April especially.

  2. I really liked this box, except for the garment bag which is kind of meh. I don’t ever take anything in for dry cleaning. I’ll probably use it for separating dirty clothes from clean when travelling. I seriously love the perfume oil though, which surprised me. It smells clean and fresh. Normally I don’t like flowery scents but it works for me. I got the same bracelet you did. I would have loved one of the more colorful ones but it’s still nice. I hope they keep it up.

  3. This was my first Pop Sugar box and I am really disappointed. To me, it is not worth spending money on at all. Unfortunately, I bought it for a set time, not month-to-month, but I will try to cancel anyway. Subscription boxes look like they aren’t my thing.

  4. Canceled after recieving the last two terrible boxes..

  5. This was my first box ..although from past reviews it seems a little lite- I am all for the fun of subscription boxes in general- I am giving it a 3 month test before I stay or go.

  6. I wish I’d canceled sooner! This box was it for me. A garment bag? Seriously? Woohoo! I’m going to need to rest from all the fun I’m having.

  7. I have been a popsugar subscriber since September and this is the first box I have been truly disappointed in. I guess it was only a matter of time! The perfume oil was too strong of a floral scent (regifting), the dark chocolate is going to my husband, and the garment bag is meh. I like the blotting papers and the bracelet though. No matter what, I am keeping my subscription, as it still is my favorite box.

  8. This was my first Pop Sugar Must Have box and I’m a bit disappointed. I do like the bracelet, but the perfume is way too flowery for me and the rest are items I won’t really use. Not ready to cancel yet though!

  9. I liked this box, but I didn’t love it. A lot of people have said it felt like it needed one more item and I have to agree. I’m with you on the dry clean only, but I like your idea of using the bag for travel. I love the bracelet, I’m wishing I had put it on this morning!

  10. I know you say you liked the box but looking at the items I have to say I am so glad I canceled Pop Sugar when I did. I wouldn’t have liked any of those items. I did get the Summer limited edition box and I hope that the Nicole Ritchie glasses don’t take up much of the value.

    • I agree. I canceled last month so I’m glad that I’m not that into this box. I’m considering buying the summer edition, though.
