POPSUGAR Must Have Mini Subscription Box Review – April 2016
POPSUGAR Must Have Mini is a new subscription box from POPSUGAR Must Have! The box will include 2 full-size items, (beauty, fashion or home), and these items will be different than those featured in the regular POPSUGAR Must Have box.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Box: POPSUGAR Must Have Mini Box
The Cost: $18.95
The Products: Introducing a smaller version of our box of curated, full-sized products including the best in fashion, beauty, and home for only $18.95, shipping included. Your subscription will auto-renew, so you get a little present every month!
In the Must Have MINI Box you will receive 2 full-size items worth over $30. Please note that the products in the Must Have MINI Box will be different from the products offered in the Must Have Box.
(Check out our POPSUGAR Must Have reviews of the regular sized box to see what has been in past boxes!)
Like the regular POPSUGAR Must Have Box, this box includes an info card detailing the items included.
GreenMarket Purveying Co. White Melon Soy Candle – Value $16
This candle is described as having “notes of fresh melon, sweet peach, zesty citrus, and comforting vanilla.” To me, though, this candle smells EXACTLY like the beloved gum of my youth:
I even had my husband smell the candle without giving him any hints and he brought up this gum, too!
This candle is a sugar-free way to get some childhood nostalgia, so I’m pretty pleased!
Farmacy Lip Bloom – Value $16.50 (Scent may vary)
I’m loving the Farmacy brand inclusion for POPSUGAR this month. Their packaging is gorgeous:
This lip balm is great, too. The formula gives a lot of shine and moisture, it is made with natural ingredients, and I love that the basil flavor really pops!
Verdict: This box has a value of $32.50. POPSUGAR guarantees a value of at least $30, so they met value expectations with this first box. I think my initial issue when I saw the spoilers was that I was expecting that Popsugar would really exceed expectations with the first box. (I have no reason for that expectation other than wanting more.)
Now that I have the box in my hands, I really like both of the items, so I’m happy spending $18.50 for this box. However, it doesn’t have the same type of value and FOMO that the regular POPSUGAR Must Have Box has, so I could see how this box wouldn’t be for everyone.
I’m really curious to see what is in future Must Have Mini Boxes. In this box, I’d say the candle is the only giftable item, and I think boxes with two giftable items may be more successful.
What do you think of the first POPSUGAR Must Have Mini Box? Anyone else have a flashback to Bubblicious thanks to the yummy-smelling candle?
