Beauty Blender + Cleanser Duo – Value $24

I use my beauty blender everyday (thanks for getting me hooked Birchbox!) so having an extra and a full size cleanser is amazing. I highly recommend beauty blender if you haven’t tried it yet!

Verdict: May’s POPSUGAR Must Have box is definitely one of my all time favorites. I love the product selection and the value – definitely worth the $35 I paid for it! (I might even like this box more than the Summer Fun Limited Edition box!) What did you think of the May box?

  1. I absolutely ADORE charm & chain.. any unused gift cards would be greatly appreciated 😉

  2. Ugh, I kinda hated this month’s Popsugar..well, at least Mom got a new hat out of it =P

    Popsugar Must Have can be really hit or miss for me, but I’ve had some good boxes from them too, so we’ll see what June has in store!

  3. If anyone doesn’t want their gift card I will gladly take it!

    • I’m not using mine. Send me your adress and I’ll mail it to ya. 🙂

  4. Is popsugar really worth the subscription price or is glossybox a tad better?

    • popsugar is very hit or miss! i dislike more boxes than i like. Glossybox is completely different than popsugar. Glossybox gives around 5 deluxe sample size beauty items whereas popsugar will give you full size items that are in different categories. boxes tend to have 1 must have of beauty, home, food, accessory . I love glossybox though! Glossybox is the 1 box that i’ve never been dissapointed in, I also really like samplel society! it’s right on par with glossybox imo, and it’s 5 bucks cheaper.

  5. LOVED IT! LOVED IT! LOVED IT! The perfect mix of fun, cute and different!

    I was also really delighted that there were actually some cute things at Charm & Chain that you could get with that gift card! I was expecting everything to be outrageously expensive, but they have a decent selection within the $50-or-less range!

  6. Thanks for the post!
    I will definitely have to look into PopSugar… looks awesome!
