POPSUGAR Must Have Box June 2015 Review + Coupon Info

Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.

POPSUGAR Must Have Box June 2015 Review + Coupon Sunglasses

Quay Australia Mandate sunglasses – Value $45

I didn’t pick up on it from the spoiler pictures, but the frames of these glasses are matte black (which I love). I think these will be a flattering shape for a lot of subscribers, but I’m not sure if they are a little too narrow for my wide face!

POPSUGAR Must Have Box June 2015 Review + Coupon Book

In the Unlikely Event by Judy Bluum (Retail Value $28 – On Amazon for $16.77)

I’ve seen this book on a lot of Beach Read Summer 2015 lists, and I love that POPSUGAR included it in the box. (And it was just released on the 2nd). I can’t wait to read it!

POPSUGAR Must Have Box June 2015 Review + Coupon Sponge

Spongelle Boxed Flowers Body Wash Infused Buffer in Papaya Yuzu (Value $16)

I don’t usually come across a completely new-to-me product in subscription boxes, but this one fits the bill! It’s a sponge/buffer that is infused with body wash and lasts for multiple uses. You place it under water and squeeze the sponge to absorb the water. (Then squeeze out excess water after use). I like the tropical scent, and I liked the application too – now will just see how many uses I get out of it!

POPSUGAR Must Have Box June 2015 Review + Coupon Headband

Yogitoes Peacock Headband (Value $4)

The slight texture on the fabric of this headband keeps it from slipping off, and I’ll probably use it for when I’m applying facial masks or cleansers like a few readers suggested!

POPSUGAR Must Have Box June 2015 Review + Coupon Supercandy

Snap Infusion Super Candy (Value $4)

I’ve had SuperCandy before thanks to subscription boxes, and they are really good. They are infused with b vitamins, antioxidants and electrolytes, so I can almost talk myself into thinking this candy is good for me! (These were gone very soon after this picture was taken – I can’t resist gummies!)

POPSUGAR Must Have Box June 2015 Review + Coupon Gift Card

Sweet & Spark $30 Promo Card

I didn’t realize that Sweet & Spark is a curated vintage jewelry shop – meaning every single piece is listed as “only1 available.” I’m wondering how they will handle the POPSUGAR subscriber rush with that kind of inventory…

From what I can tell, prices start at $38 with free shipping, so you could get a piece for as little as $8. They have some gorgeous pieces (and a lot of gold jewelry) so I’ll probably end up using this discount code.

POPSUGAR Must Have Box June 2015 Review + Coupon Pacifica

Pacifica Eyeshadow Palette (Value $14)

I love the packaging of this palette. I’m sort of bummed the palette packaging itself isn’t as gorgeous as the outer box!

POPSUGAR Must Have Box June 2015 Review + Coupon Palette

Here are the colors with descriptions (from left to right):

Skinnydip – Matte nude base cover or lash liner. A universal highlighter.

Coral Sand – Satin coral for lid base or for highlighting.

Golden – Perfect Gold with just the right amount of shimmer. Use on lids and or for highlighting.

Urchin – Iridescent jeweled purple with gold tones. Perfect for lining and crease.

And here are the swatches:

POPSUGAR Must Have Box June 2015 Review + Coupon Swatches

I’m happy with the shades of this palette. They aren’t as strongly pigmented as some eyeshadows, but with a primer the colors hold well. (And I love that Pacifica’s formulas are 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and formulated without FD&C color, phthalates, talc, parabens, or petroleum.

Verdict: This box has a retail value of $111 if you count the list price of the Judy Bluum book, or about $100 if you count the Amazon price. (Neither of those totals includes the Sweet & Spark discount code). This isn’t one of my all-time favorite POPSUGAR Must Have boxes, but I still like it and will use everything. I’m also just so excited to get a book in this box! I think this is one of those boxes that I will like more once I use the products more too.

This is a long shot but I am looking to see if anyone on the swap site will list their Quay Sunglasses on Ebay for purchase. I see that there are 91 listings and I am looking for at least one pair if not two. My boyfriend fell in love with these sunglasses and he recently broke them. His birthday is May 11th and I would like to get him a pair!!! And maybe have a backup!!!

Any help would be great!
Thanks!

Jeanie

I cancelled my subscription from Popsugar and this was my last box and I’m glad. I gave my daughter the sunglasses, headband, book and gift card because I cannot use them. I wear prescription sunglasses, cannot wear contacts so regular sunglasses are useless for me. The band is cute, but not my style, but it looks great on my daughter as do the sunglasses. And I don’t read these kind of books. The candy is okay, the makeup is okay and the sponge scrub thing is okay. I’m not sorry I’m walking away from this subscription. I will admit June’s box is better than the joke that was May’s box, but to each their own.

Kim

This is the first time I can actually use everything in the box !
The jewerly I ordered cane quickly and it was very nice . It came in a velvet pouch and I also had another 10 dollars off the next purchase in the future. So this wasn’t bad either
I used the sponge and it’s fab! Ordered another one with the coupon
Makeup shadows I really didn’t expect them to be nice , but they were lovely. I usually use cool tones and all the colors looked great. ( I didn’t use the gold
Book- will enjoy this summer and then pass it along to a friend.
Yoga headband us comfortable and I can wear it with jeans ! The yoga studio was selling them for 12.00 so I think I got a deal .
Candy was yummy and gluten free!
Glasses didn’t look too cheap and they fit my narrow face. I like having these as a spare. Thanks pop sugar this was a gem this month!

Sarah

For me this box was OK. I gave the glasses to my husband and he really likes them. I love reading, but this book doesn’t particularly interest me, so I am going to take it to Powell’s books (I am lucky enough to live by them) and try to trade it in for another. The eye shadow really is not my colors , I am not quite sure what I can do about it. I really like the head band but did anyone else notice that the edges roll up ? In all honesty I probably would have sold this box, but the shipping was spendy due to book.

Sarah.

I was able to take my book to Powell’s books and trade it in for the full retail value and buy some books I have been wanting to read for awhile. The sponge was awesome, I wonder how long it lasts. The only thing I don’t like about it is all the wasted soap, it seems there were a ton of extra soap in the tub I was not using.

Catherine

It was not my favorite box but I still enjoyed several of the items and the Popsugar boxes are still my favorite!

Annette

I finally got my box today. The sunglasses were what really excited me about this box and I was not disappointed, they are a great shape for my face and fit well…I really needed a new pair too! The rest of the box I was neutral about but once I received the box, I realized there is nothing I want to give away or swap, so that made this an excellent box. The one item I’m a little bit disappointed in is the head band, the stitching is already coming apart but I am using it to wash my face so it is adequate for that. I’m not sure if I will us the code for Sweet n Spark. Man that sponge smells amazing!

Erica

I’m surprised that so many people have the eyeshadow up for swap. I’ve been using it and really like the colors and they have good pigmentation.

Sue

Update: I noticed the gift card for Sweet and Spark is a black gift card from Liz’s picture. I did not receive that in my box. I probably won’t use anyway so no biggie.

Sue

Update: I did receive the sweet & spark coupon. I will not be using. If anyone would like to have it, I’ll email it to you.

Bee

I’d love to have your coupon code! (I attempted last week to post a reply to someone before who was giving theirs away, but I’m not sure they got it.) My 13-year-old niece wants rhinestone earrings, and I can’t justify the wacky prices on the Sweet&Spark website, otherwise! [email protected] THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!

Sue

I received my box today and love it! Definitely received more value than what I paid. I did not get a code for the sweet and spark; just a card in the box. I did receive a 30 percent off for Spongelle code, tho.

Samantha

The Spongelle coupon is under the sponge, I just found mine a couple of days ago when I went to use the sponge and it expired on 8/1, I didn’t even know it was in there, I guess I should read more reviews/comments. As for the sponge, I absolutely love it, it made my skin so, so soft even before I put my shower oil on.

lisad

Just received my box. I can’t find anything on that website to buy with the coupon that I like but the rest of the box is great.

Nicole

I loved this box! Every item was a hit for me- except for the Sweet & Spark card. I couldn’t find one thing that I liked, even if I was willing to shell out that kind of money for jewelry- which I’m not. If anyone wants my code let me know- you can have it!

Mia

Can I have your code? [email protected]

Randi

I got my box yesterday and am pretty happy with it. I wasn’t sure after reading some comments, but overall I think it was a good box. I LOVED the candy things (and especially since they didn’t have gelatin!). I used the headband when I washed my face last night, wasn’t sure about the sunglasses, but like the black matte and can always use an extra pair of sunglasses. I thought it was nice to get a hardcover book, I haven’t read a book in awhile so it’ll be nice to start again. haven’t used the eyeshadows yet but like the fact that they’re cruelty free/vegan. I was looking at the jewelry website and didn’t see anything in my price range that I loved at the moment, but thought it was nice that the card didn’t have an expiration on it (especially since they’re all 1 of items). Looking forward to using the sponge, papaya isn’t my favorite scent, but its a good summer scent. I also got the little blue purse and loved that its vegan leather also.
so overall, good box and like Liz said, I think I’ll enjoy it as I use the products more. I also sent one to my friend in California for her birthday, her’s is scheduled to arrive today so I’m hoping she enjoys hers.
I understand that not every item will be liked by everyone, but that’s the chance you take. But it also introduces you to things you would have never bought before and might actually really love.

I received my box today and have to say I am completely thrilled!! I especially love the sunglasses. If I had to pick a weak link it would be the gift card, I searched and searched and could not find one thing on the site to use it on.

Elaine

Finally got mine today. Yeah! Happy with the contents and value. Think I will put it all to use. So glad the candy was not chocolate! would have been a melted mess in this heat. Lol

shelbi

Anyone else’s book seem cheaply made? My pages are really uneven and almost feels like it was literally glued back together..

Cat

The pages are indeed cut that way on purpose.

Caitlyn

Some books are intentionally cut that way. I believe it allows for easy turning. I love the look of it though, reminds me of old books.

April

I think after getting the box, they did a good job finding these items and curating this. I say that because although these items weren’t ideal for me personally, they did do a great job finding unique things that people likely don’t already have…as compared to lip gloss, self-tanner, sunscreen, etc. I’m surprised how much fun I’m having trying new things I wouldn’t have picked out for myself. That Spongelle item is amazing…and part of me is just happy to have a newly released book in hard cover (not electronic) that I can read whenever I want. So overall I’m happy with the box, though I look like a bit of a doof in the sunglasses. haha

Anna

Guess I am easy to please but I really liked the box. I will use everything and the eyeshadow is so pretty. I started with PopSugar last September and the only box I hated was the Fashion one. And I have gotten every special edition that has come out and liked/loved them all. My favorite monthly box was February. Can’t wait til it gets here every month!

Jackie

Oh – and also the headband? I have not opened it yet.

Sarah

Hi I would really like the head band if its not too late, please e mail me at [email protected] to talk about details, thanks !

Jackie

Anyone want my Sweet&Spark Coupon?

Lark

I’d love to have your coupon code, ackshully, please and thank you? My 13-year-old niece wants rhinestone earrings, and I can’t justify the wacky prices on the Sweet&Spark website, otherwise! [email protected] THANK YOU!!

Elyse

I’m a little bit nonplussed about the June box. I already purchased Judy Blume’s book before I saw a spoiler (no fault, obvs, of Popsugar), so now I have two. (Anybody want to trade??)

But for the sweet and spark code, I don’t really like that being part of the box. I checked out their website and was really disappointed. The idea is cool, but for one, I’m not into costume jewelry, and two, holy $100 for a necklace… no thanks. I didn’t see anything for a reasonable price, and the things I liked were “sold out”. If somebody wants to trade for the book, I’ll put the code in as a book marker.

I do love the sunglasses. I got matte black (maybe everybody did).

I know they can’t please everybody each month, so this is my “meh” month I guess…

Ellen

This is another subscription that I really wanted to love, but cannot justify the continual subscription. Unless you have endless storage capacity or tons of friends who want these random gifts that come in this box, you’ll find yourself accumulating a lot of junk. I’d rather go and buy 1 thing that I actually really really want.

Katie

For the Sweet & Spark promo code – is it supposed to be printed in the white space on the little black card? Mine is blank.

Andrea

Yes, my sweet & spark code was in the white space under “$30”

Katie

Thank you! 🙂

Andrea

1. Does anyone else’s book have a rough edge? Like the pages weren’t cut right?
2. I feel like I have a wide face, glasses fit fine for me. Maybe a little tight behind the ear, but I’m ok with it. One downer for me is they aren’t polarized lenses. Love the case they came in.
3. Headband is a miss for me. I love my yogi toes yoga towel. This doesnt seem to be the same quality.

Cat

The pages are cut like that intentionally on many hardcover books.

Also, the headband had a $4 value. They’re probably made pretty quickly. I like it either way and it doesn’t make much value dent in box.

The annoying item is the card for the jewelry site.

Elyse

I purchased this book before I received the Popsugar box (or looked at spoilers) and my book came with pages with rough edges. I believe this is intentional 🙂

Katie

Along the spine/long length? Mine is cut “rough” as well, it’s a style thing they do with some hardcovers.

Caddie

I believe the rough pages are by design – I find staggered edges make for easier page turning. No finger licking needed!

Cari

Just curious if anyone was one of the 10 lucky subscribers to receive an item(s) from Stowaway cosmetics. Popsugar posted about this on their blog back on May 11. Have never heard of Stowaway but seems like an interesting concept!

Sunnychick

I think this is the best monthly box since February! So happy to have a hardcover summer book to read…I loved Judy Blume as a kid so I’m really looking forward to reading it (I wish they included more books in their boxes). The sponge smells great and surprisingly the sunglasses fit my small face. I actually wasn’t looking forward to receiving the sunglasses because I have the hardest time finding a pair that fit me, but they look pretty good and I love how the lenses are really dark. I really like how the headband can also be used to cover your eyes during yoga, and a girl can never have too much eyeshadow (although I’m not sure about the bright gold shadow). I think the gift card for a piece of antique jewelry sounds fun and am looking forward to surfing the site this weekend. The only thing I was a little disappointed about was the gummies because I don’t eat gelatin, but I’m pleased to see they are gelatin free! Overall, LOVE THIS BOX!

Em

No gelatin in the gummies!

Em

Wow, fail, I don’t know why I read the entire comment except for apparently the last few words haha. Yay for no gelatin!
