POPSUGAR Must Have Mini Subscription Box Review – August 2016

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


POPSUGAR Must Have Mini is a new subscription box from POPSUGAR Must Have! The box includes 2 full-size items, (beauty, fashion or home), and these items will be different than those featured in the regular POPSUGAR Must Have box.


This box was sent to us for review purposes.  (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)


The Subscription 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. 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.

Like the regular POPSUGAR Must Have Box, this box includes an info card detailing the items included.




Clean Cool Cotton Body Lotion – Value $26

This is a fresh-scented, lightweight lotion. At first, I wasn’t sure if the scent was for me, but it’s growing on me. And my husband Eric likes it, too!

I also love that the formula is paraben-free and not tested on animals. (If you like soap-scented products, I think you will love this lotion!)


Three by Three Jotblock Lined Notepad – Value $6


This little notepad is my favorite item in the box! I love the built in pen holder, and the rainbow lines are so cute! (Plus I feel like the color is subtle enough to work with any desk decor.)


ToGo Spa Eye Mask – Value $12.50

These under eye treatments were a bonus item in the box this month!


To use these you just put them on your eyes and let them sit for 15-20 minutes. They stay in place really well, and I think these would be great for depuffing eyes. (I could immediately feel them cooling down my skin after I put them on.)

I also love that we get three sets of eye masks. I’ve only used one so far, and I think I’ll save the other two sets for a mini-spa day when I visit my mom this weekend.

Verdict: This box has a value of $44.50. I’m happy to see a higher value with this box, and I love that they included a bonus item for August, too. I don’t think the Mini Box will ever be as exciting to me as the original POPSUGAR Must Have box, but it is growing on me! Plus, I’ll use everything in the box this month.

What do you think of the August POPSUGAR Must Have Mini Box?

  1. I glad I cancelled… The eye mask should be fine though past the expiration date. I’ve got some of them, they keep for a good long while.

  2. I really loved the first box so I signed up for the mini even tho I get the regular popsugar sub as well. After these last two boxes I’m cancelling tho, ice cube trays & notepads aren’t worth it!!!

    • I was disappointed I got the coconut one and it was expired 8/1/16.

  3. Seriously I love those Eye Masks! I have a box in the fridge (seriously you need to try at least one pair cold, I can assure you they work WONDERS). They saved my mom and I on a day when we had a funeral right before graduation! We both went from super puffy red eyed tired women to perfect 10 hour sleep in less than 20 min!

  4. I love the note pad!!!!! Put mine by the phone . The lotion has a light scent but it feels a bit sticky for my taste. The eye cooling pads are great even for sensitive skin! So glad to see more items in box. Let’s hope it continues

  5. Nice box. I’m really considering subscribing since I tend to like the items in the mini box better than the must have.

  6. I wasn’t sure about the lotion bc of the scent… but since you like it I’ll give it a try.
    The notepad is cute and useful and I can always use another. I like that is bigger than the usual post it notes.

    But I’ll more than likely put the eye things up for swap.

    Really happy to see a 3rd item this month… hoping it continues. And still have my fingers crossed for a yummy snack to be included!
