  1. Love it! Funny, but this box would be something that the FFF box should of been. I’m not really a hate person, but I do wear one on the beach or pool, so it’s a keeper. Love the salad spoons. The jump rope is great for a quick workout. Mascara is meh, but OMG those coconut chips are ADDICTING! I must buy some more! Perfect box for the summer!

  2. Not a fan of anything in this box. I’m super disappointed . This is my least fave box and I’ve been a subscriber for over a year. They’re really slacking lately. πŸ™

  3. I got my box yesterday:) the hat is wayyyy better in person! I think I have a pretty big head and it fits me perfectly! I was really worried it wouldn’t. It’s Seagrass and can be easily packed for vacations. I love love love this box. Last month was my first popsugar box and I am now highly addicted! My husband hates the word popsugar now cause I ramble on and on about it:) coconut chips are really good. I am ordering more now. I wish they had them at Raley’s but looks like Savemart is the store that carries them close to me. I’ll just stick to ordering them online. Sunscreen and after lotion smell good too. I like the wood design on the sunscreen. Makes me feel like I have something different than everyone else. Love the jump rope. I’m pretty tall, and it works perfect for me. Salad servers, awesome!! All in all great box!!

  4. I like this box, not my favorite but the thing that’s bugging me is the wire on my hat is broken and poking through the grass mesh stuff and it pokes into my head… Is anyone else’s wire brim broken like that? It seems like a really bad design flaw. My hat is dark brown with leather accents and really cute if i could wear it without it clawing my scalp :-$

  5. Haven’t received mine yet but personally am excited about this one! I hope the hat fits, the coconut chips, straws and jump rope look great too. I hope in like the sun bum, have plenty of sun block but need some after sun lotion, they don’t hand those out in boxes as frequently.

  6. I am not wild about anything in here, but I am munching the coconut already! I liked last month much better! I’m going broke buying duplicates of last month’s items (turkish towel, lotion) on ebay!!!
    Maybe someone will like the hat…I plan to sell it on ebay and also the salad servers. The jump rope is okay, but I already have one that works great.

  7. My first impression was “meh.” Now that I’ve seen the actual box via instagram, I’m kinda wishing I had subbed to this one. I LOVE the salad servers and the hat. LOVE. The other things I’d use (with the exception of the jump rope) one way or the other. Maybe I’ll get lucky and someone will swap some of it with me!

    • Hey! I have my salad spoons up for swap. If you haven’t already swapped with someone I would love to see if we can make it happen!

  8. Actually this could have been the perfect box for me, I love all the stuff in it. I love it so much already OWN the salad servers, a jump rope and two brown straw sunhats.

    My box should get to me on Friday, I really hope I get a black hat.
    I can always use a new mascara and sunscreen but I have a lot of lotion.

    So I will be swapping/gifting some stuff but I’m still excited about the box.

  9. and yes, you do get both Sun Bum items… it’s not either/or… it’s the SPF and the after-sun lotion

  10. Another person who is glad they cancelled. These items aren’t for me and I’m glad I saved my $40. Seems like they’re on an every other month basis for me for good boxes with items I’ll use, so hopefully we’ll get spoilers for August box and I can decide if I want to resubscribe.

    • If there was a like button I would hit it on your post πŸ™‚

      imo there is nothing wrong with these items, however! I would love to get a hat and the tanning lotion would probably last me 3 yrs and then expire because i’m not going to the beach anymore this summer and I already have sun screen, the salad tools would sit in a drawer not used, I don’t need anymore mascara, jump rope not for me and I don’t need straws. would love to try those coconut chips…so for $40 I would be buying the chips and hat….just not worth it. Will wait for august too and hopefully a coupon.

  11. my box just came… putting everything up for swap except the salad servers

    • Where do you swap your items?

      • should be under Ashley Wasnick or… i just started last week, so I have no reviews yet; however, I shipped five packages last week and am shipping another one soon! πŸ™‚

  12. I chose to cancel my subscription this month and after seeing this, I’m glad I did! I’ve been a subscriber for about 8 months and have only gotten two boxes that I’ve really loved, and it’s just too expensive for those kind of odds!

  13. I love everything! yay!

  14. Eh, the only think I like is the salad servers. If this is the box, very disappointed!

  15. can someone post the link for the swap page. Looking forward to this box but I’m sure the hat won’t be good for me since I have a huge head…hehe

    • You can click on swaps from the main page on here at the top πŸ™‚

    • I NEED that hat!

      • my box just came… putting everything up for swap except the salad servers

  16. I love this box, I’m just a huge PS fan. My good china is solid white, and I had already purchased a serving dish and cutting mats in the salad server’s pattern (“Ziggy”) from Birchbox previously, so I am beyond happy to get the matching salad servers from this box. The hat looks awesome, really hope it suits me πŸ™‚ Love coconut anything, can always use mascara and sunscreen, will keep the jump rope for myself, my 2 kids go through a box of straws every week… TOTAL WIN for me. I’m getting 2 boxes, so hope I get 2 diff color hats, prob don’t need 2 sets of salad servers?, but in any case, even w/2 boxes, there won’t be much up for swap πŸ™‚

  17. Yup, glad I unsubscribed a while ago.

  18. Checked my email and saw my box is coming tomorrow.

    • Me too – it seems too good to be true! πŸ™‚

      • Well, my shipment tracking just updated from today to a week from today. I guess it was too good to be true πŸ™

        • Same here. πŸ™ Glad you posted otherwise I would have been looking for it today.

        • Mine did that too – went from the 9th, to the 16th, to the 15th.

    • It does look huge, but looks can be deceiving… Just got it today, and it didn’t work for me. Too small. I got it on part of the way, then it started hurting my head. That prickly straw doesn’t help matters, either.

      • Same for me! My head is huge (or at least by hat standards), and this one was a little too snug on for me to wear comfortably.

  19. Love the salad spoons & Dang coconut chips! Might have to order the spoons. I buy Dang at my local natural food store all the time! πŸ™‚

    But nothing else really catches my eye so this box is not for me.

  20. I’m surpirsed to see that another box has this mascara. That’s the 3rd that I know of.

    • It’ll be my 3rd. πŸ™

  21. Some people got their boxes todayβ€” it appears the hat is a sort of squishy grass-material bucket hat, which I guess is how it fits in the box! Definitely not for me though.

    • I agree with you! Not sure it’s for me either…but I’ll have to wait until it’s on my head!

    • Yes, and the wire rim in mine is actually visible through the straw. I might wear it in our community pool, but certainly nowhere else. I own several Michael Stars items, and quite frankly, I am floored this is a Michael Stars hat – it looks much more like something that an older woman would grab at a gardening store. Disappointing.

  22. I’m looking forward to receiving this box. I can’t wait to see the hat and the salad servers. Sun Bum is gluten-free and paraben-free!!! Can’t wait to see the jump rope color.

  23. I love the salad servers and straws, they are so pretty! I guess Summer boxes are just not for me, I don’t go on vacations, I don’t like the heat, I rarely go to the beach and I don’t like to tan. I’m looking forward to more Fall-like ones! ^_^

  24. This box is another win for me. The salad servers are fun, which is a great mix with my white and glass dishes and something that I think is cute but would never actually buy. Hat, always a win for me or at least my toddler will play dress up with it if I don’t like it. The jump rope is another win as I’m a pretty active person and run 20+ miles a week. Jumping rope is a good way for me to mix it up. And with 2 kids under 3 in my house, straws are always welcome. The rest is just whatever but I regularly spend more than $40 on stuff that I want but don’t need at Target and I think that’s pretty much what I’m getting here. I could use a new hat and salad servers and a jump rope and straws. As long as it’s all good quality then I’m a happy camper.

    • Haha – I couldn’t have said it better myself! I’m happy with this box, nothing super-standout, but I feel the same way as you on every point (minus the kid part!).

  25. Looking forward to this box, going on vacation soon, so hopefully the hat will be cute and the sunscreen will get some use. The jump rope hopefully will get me back motivated to working out and the salad servers look cool. I’m okay with receiving mascara, just not sure about the coconut chips and straws.

  26. I love everything except the jump rope but I think I’ll give it to my nephew to use. He would like it.

    I’m so bummed that I won’t get my box before I go on vacation as the sunscreen and lotion and the hat would come in mighty handy.

    How does the swaps work? I’m not sure as I’ve never participated in any swaps before regarding my must have box.

  27. I never get why people find it necessary to trash something other people may like. I don’t mean giving opinions – those are crucial for the companies that I’m sure do check this blog – but raining on everyone’s parade seems so unnecessary to me.

    I personally will enjoy my “box of junk”, thanks.

    • if you’d like more junk, be sure to check the swaps soon for the items in this box

      • Got my own, thanks.

    • I completely agree with you Katie!!

    • I love it!!! I will use every single item.

    • It’s just someone else posting their opinion, same as you. Nothing to take personally! Some boxes that totally I love, lots of other people hate – I’m cool with that.

      If you love your box, enjoy it and don’t worry about what other internet strangers think lol.

  28. LOVE this month’s box! The salad servers will go great with my bright bowls, etc. I’m sure that although the hat styles will vary, a hat will go far when walking the beach or farmer’s markets – regardless of how ridiculous I look it will be great protection from the sun! The jump rope, not for me… let’s just say bouncing and I do NOT go well together lol but one of my kids will surely get good use from it. The straws will be perfect for our next picnic or bonfire to mix it up a bit – you see those paper straws everywhere and although I wouldn’t have bought them they’ll be fun to use since they are in the box! Looking forward to trying the mascara – the last “non-drugstore” mascara sample I got was junk – I’ve learned that just because things are expensive doesn’t always mean it’s better than a less expensive counterpart, although it’s fun to try stuff that you can’t get at the local drugstore πŸ™‚ Looking forward to using all of this on a nice day this summer!

    • Mascara is DEFINITELY one of those things I’ve found is usually just as good in the drugstore as at the makeup counter. πŸ˜€

      • Agree 100%. Some mascaras at the drugstore work just as well as the high end ones. That’s definitely a ‘save’ item. Eyeshadows on the other hand, I am far more demanding about. πŸ˜‰

  29. I love this box! I canceled my PSMH sub a few months ago and am really tempted to resub…but all I REALLY need from this box is the hat and tongs…so if anyone wants to trade when they get theirs… πŸ™‚

    • Well hi there πŸ™‚ I don’t need a hat OR tongs… are you on the swap site?

      • Yes, I am… I will most likely be putting everything up for swap from this box except for the salad servers.

  30. Sooooo glad I still have my $40……..this is a MISS for me!!!! NOTHING I WOULD WANT ~ so happy for the spoilers, so I don’t waste my money!!

  31. I think I will keep this box. I will use everything I think. I may swap the salad servers. Jump rope is really good exercise! And you can never have too much mascara. =)

    • Love the salad spoons…how much?

  32. After seeing these spoilers, I’m so glad I cancelled my PSMH box after last month. Instead I get to put that money toward another $49 Golden Tote πŸ˜›

  33. I like all of it. It’s all cute and summery.

    (As an aside, personally I will never be all upset about what’s included in subscription boxes… if I don’t like something, then I’ll gift it. I don’t understand when people get all bent out of shape when they don’t like the contents. It’s a SURPRISE BOX. If you don’t want to run the risk of being disappointed, then buy exactly what you want/need and don’t buy a surprise box! I’m not referring to anyone specifically on this thread. Just noticing a lot of griping lately.)

  34. Love this box! Hope the hat looks like the one you put, Liz, because it’s super cute!

  35. wow, this is my first and most likely last box… not interested in ANYTHING in this, except maybe the salad servers. i feel like i just flushed $40 down the toilet!! what a box of junk!!

    • It’s usually much better, sorry this is your first box. Its DEF not a fav of mine- I think I will be swapping everything actually, but 99% of the time this box is awesome.

  36. Of course I just bought sunscreen! I was going to get a hat, so I hope that’s true! Mine should show up soon! I’m excited. I love the salad server and straws!

  37. I’am done with popsugarmusthaves boxes, from now on I will only get their winter/ Christmas special edition boxes.

  38. Can’t wait – going camping – love the hat & fun salad spoons – can always use sunscreen and lotion – jump rope? not gonna happen but my girls might use it….so most of the box will end up in my trailer – a yeah for me

  39. I have to say, I have gotten multiple boxes since the beginning of the year and this is the first month I skipped completely. I don’t look good in hats but I am still curious about the hat. The salad servers are cute but really wild and don’t match my style at all or my dishware. I have soooo much sunscreen from so many boxes even with three kids and one being a red head, I don’t need anymore. The straws are cute but does anyone use straws anymore? Straws are not good for wrinkles. πŸ™‚ The jump rope is interesting, I love all things fitness but I feel like I would need a DVD to go with it. The idea of just jumping rope doesn’t appeal. I just received coconut snacks from another box. I don’t want drug store mascara. I may regret saying this but right now I am happy I skipped this month and saved the $40 but after I see that maybe I will change my mind or maybe they will come out with a code. I might swap for the jump rope but then again maybe not. Happy hunting for photos and thanks so much for the early sneak peak!

  40. I’m curious to see how they will fit the hat into such a small box!

  41. Glad I didn’t buy this month’s box. I can do without… all of it. Boring!

  42. I’m happy I waited for spoilers because this box was not for me. Hopefully the August box will be better.

  43. I guess the boxes have been really up and down. I’m surprised to say that I prefer FFF summer box to this one….but June was so amazing!

    I think after seeing this one, FFF, and Nina Garcia box, it’s best if I just wait for spoilers before I buy ANY box. No brand is 100% safe.

  44. Looks like a great box. I was hoping to get a straw hat in one of my boxes this summer to wear in my yard. I don’t really get the whole paper straw fad and these are made in China, so I’ll be swapping those and the mascara. Otherwise, looks like a winner. I hope they keep sending a home item and a fitness item in every box. There are so many fashion and make up boxes, it’s the lifestyle stuff that sets PS apart.

  45. I am so ready for fall / winter and finally a break from the million bottles, spray-cans, tubes, and foils of sunscreen!

    • Robyn,

      I am 100% with you on this! I am so tired of the junk and things I won’t use.

  46. Thanks for the spoilers Liz!
    I’d been waiting on these to see if I wanted to get this months box. Last month was a bit for me , this one is a miss, The stuff kinda cute but nothing I’m really interested in. Glad I saved my 40. I’ll try again for August πŸ™‚

    • oops hit not bit.. lol

  47. Well this will be my first box from them and there’s almost nothing I use/would like πŸ™ I guess I’ll try and swap the whole box and see if I get any takers!

    • You totally will be able to swap it. I bet you would get more bang for your buck if you swapped the items separately though. Also, people often put there whole box for sale on EBay and are able to get the cost plus shipping back. The key is to wait until PS is no longer selling it.

  48. Love everything, apart from the jump rope. I’ll probably trade that.

  49. Love! I’ve been looking for spoilers and hadn’t found any until now. I really like the salad accessories–so fun and cute! Can’t wait until my box comes!
