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

POPSUGAR Must Have Box July 2015 Review + Coupon DOPP

Henri Bendel Signature Stripe Canvas Dopp Kit – Value $28

This was the first spoiler item revealed for the July box, and I think it is a great small makeup travel bag. My favorite part is that the top opens up completely:

POPSUGAR Must Have Box July 2015 Review + Coupon Case

Plus it is lined with a water resistant coating. (The outside fabric is canvas). (Dimensions: 4.5″H X 6.5″W X 3″D).

POPSUGAR Must Have Box July 2015 Review + Coupon Henri Coupon

Henri Bendel also included a 20% off coupon. (Generic coupon code, Valid through August 31, 2015. Excludes sale items).

POPSUGAR Must Have Box July 2015 Review + Coupon Supergoop

Supergoop! Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50 – Value $28

After reading the reviews of this mist on Sephora, I learned that this is one of those products you have to shake really well before every application. After shaking the bottle a lot, I applied the mist (with eyes and lips tightly closed), and it works as promised. The finish is matte, and you get SPF 50 protection too. (This product can also be used as your last step for setting makeup).

POPSUGAR Must Have Box July 2015 Review + Coupon Sorial

Sorial Card Case – Value $28

This card case has the same material as the blue Sorial Wallet on a Chain from the November POPSUGAR Must Have box. (And it is lined with a paisley print). I don’t use card cases that often, but this one is well-made.

Here is the other side:

POPSUGAR Must Have Box July 2015 Review + Coupon Wallet

It also came with a coupon code (generic) for $25 off at (Valid on orders of $25 or more, good through September 15th 2015).

POPSUGAR Must Have Box July 2015 Review + Coupon POP

POP Silver Portable Sonic Toothbrush – Value $20

(This toothbrush comes with one AAA battery). I love my electric toothbrush, so this will be a much better alternative for travel than the manual ones I end up buying!

POPSUGAR Must Have Box July 2015 Review + Coupon Yes to Blueberries

Yes to Blueberries Cleansing Facial Towelettes – Value $6

I’ve used these before and continue to buy them – they’re gentle, natural, and smell great! Not a new discovery item for me, but definitely a useful one.

POPSUGAR Must Have Box July 2015 Review + Coupon Good Bean

The Good Bean Fruit and No Nut Bar – Value $2

I was happy to see that this bar is vegan and gluten free! (And it was pretty tasty too – not too sweet).

POPSUGAR Must Have Box July 2015 Review + Coupon Hallmark

Hallmark Signature Cards

These are listed as a “special extra” on the info card, but they’re one of my favorite items in the box. Here are the three cards in my pack:

POPSUGAR Must Have Box July 2015 Review + Coupon Cards

POPSUGAR Must Have Box July 2015 Review + Coupon Wedding

Never Ending Happy Card – Value $6.99

POPSUGAR Must Have Box July 2015 Review + Coupon Pineapple

Blank Pineapple Card – Value $5.99

POPSUGAR Must Have Box July 2015 Review + Coupon Floral

Floral Birthday Card – Value $4.99

These cards are all so beautiful! I think my favorite is the wedding card – I love the three-dimensional paper decorations.

Verdict: I think this is one of the more practical POPSUGAR Must Have boxes (AKA lots of travel items I will definitely use). Sometimes a practical box isn’t too exciting, but I think the Hallmark cards added a nice surprise/special element. And I’ll use everything (besides maybe the card case), so I’m happy with the contents this month.

The value this month is great too – about $130! What do you think of the July POPSUGAR Must Have box?

  1. Was finally able to use my Sorial giftcard today to get one of their wristlets that had been out of stock:)

    • Me too! After I saw a comment on the forum. I got the Gramercy wristlet in gray I think. Glad it was a general promo code bc mine is somewhere at home, but not exactly sure where.

      Thought the $12 shipping was kinda steep, but since the wristlet ended up being only $3, I was ok with it.

  2. The coupon code for $5 off, MUSTHAVES, isn’t working. Anyone else having this issue??

    • It is MUSTHAVE5 with the number 5 not the letter S – that should work, but if it doesn’t please let me know!

      • It worked! Thank you!

  3. I do not subscribe because so far I would not have used many of the items included. I still like to look at the reviews though because people always rave about PopSugar. Most subscription boxes have just as many subscribers that post negative reviews as they do subscribers that recommend them. I have rarely seen complaints about PopSugar though. Most PopSugar posts are glowing, so of course I am curious why…. I have to admit that I would have used everything in this months box. I also like the theme for next months box… sigh! I am going to have to be content with having box envy if it is awesome… One month out of the last 12 is not enough to warrant me subscribing.

  4. This july box made me smile! Here is how I used my items. I used the red card holder and put my medical cards in side it for my wallet. I can find them easily. The small bag I used for medications when I travel. Never purchased a bag from them before so I felt it was a special item.
    The make up spray I gifted because I have roseacea and didn’t want to risk a reaction to Rosemary. The make up wipes were useful. But not exciting. I loved the gift cards. I used them for bags and Jewerly. The hallmark cards again were useful and everyone love to get a message in the mail!

  5. This box has made me cancel my Popsugar subscription. In my eyes it just wasn’t worth the $40 every month to use 1 item out of the box. I feel like they are getting away from the hot ticket item in the box and going to having a lot of smaller stuff. Just not worth it to me, I would rather save the money every month and get the Rachel Zoe seasonal box instead.

  6. I love this box. I will use everything!

  7. If anyone would like to sell just the cards and the supergoop I would be interested in purchasing! 🙂 my email is [email protected]

  8. My tracking initially said the 29th and now it say the 27th–it’s in the next state so I imagine it’ll be here sooner. I have a wedding to attend soon so I hope I get a nice wedding card….

    I think the Soriel coupon is going to be pointless, esp for those of us who get the box much later than most PS subscribers! They have only four items left in their shop, most of which are quite expensive, and the code expires soon… Not sure why they bothered putting that in the box!

    • I completely agree about the coupons/gift cards with expiration dates. Its hard enough to try to avoid full spoilers when some people get their boxes the first week of the month and others don’t get them until after the 20th. But then they add coupons or deals that people with later boxes really can’t use.
      If they want to add a coupon of some sort – great, but don’t have an expiration on it or don’t have it for websites with limited amounts of items. At least the Sweet & Spark promo didn’t expire. Honestly I don’t even know when the Sorial expires bc I didn’t even bother to look at it or the website after reading comments about how expensive their items are.
      They could have at least sent an email with coupon out on July 1st or something to subscribers so we all had an equal chance and time to take advantage of it if we wanted to.

    • my Sorial card holder and $25 gift card were missing so I contacting them and they emailed back saying they will send a replacement.. Two weeks later, no word from them so I email asking for tracking info, and that’s when they told me the item was back order and would need at least two more weeks to reach their facility!! Wow, so obviously they sent boxes with missing items knowingly and never mention anything, hoping that most people would not find out about it.. What other reason this would be on back order???.. Pretty shady and already had canceled my subscription with them..

      • My box was missing the wallet as well. They said they would send it, and they haven’t yet. I contacted them again last week, and they said it was “on backorder” and would ship soon.

        I think they ran out of them, and instead of waiting to ship our boxes or informing us that we would be missing an item, just sent the boxes out and figured they would deal with the backlash later.

  9. After reading your review i was really excited for this box. i received mine and absolutely love everything inside. i can’t wait to use the electric toothbrush. I’m not sure if i’ll be using the $25 coupon from Sorial as everything just seems so expensive.

  10. Im not happy with this months box and I usually find at least one item to love in the box. I don’t get popsugar so I can get “useful” items. I want an item ive never heard of and cant buy around here, and also looking for high end foodie items and accessories/jewelry. Also feels like repeats since anyone whose been getting their other boxes has plenty of small bags for makeup and we got a supergoop sunscreen a while back that I gave away since Im not out in the sun.Also the sorial $25 code I checked their site they only have 6 handbags for sale! SIX. I guess I will hold onto it and hope they restock before my code runs out because that was the one thing I really want to use. If I had to pick one thing that I will try to use is the supergoop item since it is a sunscreen but also sets your makeup.

    • Yup, that box is horrible and I canceled it as soon as I saw the spoilers.. Just got my box and both the Sorial card holder and useless gift card is missing from my box!! Wow, just transferred to LLB

  11. This is in my opinion THE BEST POPSUGAR BOX EVER!! I got it today and actually did an Unboxing video(1st ever!) because for once I didn’t see the spoilers! I’m actually still smiling because I LOVE EVERYTHING!! YEAH!!! Way to go POPSUGAR! and as far as I can remember this is the highest value box I’ve received from them which makes me smile even bigger!!
    I like the fact that everything is practical! I honestly want to buy another one! And bonus ALL products are new to me except the wipes but I love those plus I received this months box so early!! I did move so maybe that’s it; I checked my shipping info and they literally mailed this out on Monday! WOW! FYI.. I’m in Louisiana(by New Orleans). I definitely give this box and this sub a big ole 10!! My Popsugar sub is quickly becoming my fav sub!! THANKS POPSUGAR!!

    • Glad you loved it! 🙂

  12. I just got my box today and I really like it, I love the dopp kit, but the zipper is a little hard. The cards are beautiful, but I have no use for a wedding card, I also got a “Hello Beautiful” card which has a heavy plastic front which is kind of odd. But the cards are super pretty, I don’t get the card case and will list it for swap. I checked the sorial site and the cheapest thing on there is now $48. Not much of a selection and nothing I really like. This box is very useful and I do like it.

    • Hey Sara! If you don’t think you’ll use the cards, I’m more than happy to buy them from you or swap…dealers choice! Email me at michellesomer at mac dot com. Thank you!! I’d love the Hello Beautiful canard/plaque/whatever!

  13. Bleh, have not received mine yet, hope I can cancel before I get charged. Not a darn thing in it that looks usable.

  14. Got my box today…it was missing the Sorial card holder! Bummer! I emailed them, so we’ll see what they say. I think a lot of it will be going up on the swap site…not super fond of this box.

    • hahaha! My Sorial card thing is missing, as well as the coupon! I don’t believe it’s a coincidence that same item is missing.. And my Henri bender zip does not even close all the way!! Canceled that box!

  15. Well, I think the Supergood! Setting Mist may be a fail for me, unfortunately. I’m going to give it one more try, but I *think* I had a reaction to it. I woke up this morning, after having used it yesterday, and the apples of my cheeks were bright red and slightly swollen. I had a spot just above my eyebrow and on my chin as well that were red and swollen. Did anyone else have a strange reaction to it?

    Like I said, I am going to give it one more try to make sure it wasn’t something else that caused it. If it is the mist, I’m going to be sad, I really like the smell and the way it feels. :\ I suppose my daughter will get some use out of it though.

  16. I liked the box though not as much as the previous one, but the items in it are mostly useful for me. The only thing is that I think I got a tampered box. The wrapping paper was torn and the fold out card was missing.

  17. The doppel kit is nice, I like that it opens up fully do I don’t have to dig through my travel bags anymore! The toothbrush is really powerful too, I definitely get a nice clean feeling! Now the protein bar… It was something I would never buy. I felt like I was chewing it forever! It did keep me full I guess? But I prefer kind bars. I don’t have celiac’ disease, but allergies, and I’m not a vegan, so maybe I am not the target market for those nasty bars…

  18. Just got mine and I’m so happy! The cards are so beautiful, I got the bride, happy birthday and the hello beautiful card. I’ve already used the Sorial code for the grey $25 wristlet. I use my Sorial pop sugar cross body bag from the November box all the time, it’s held up beautifully.
    The Henri Bendel dopp kit is adorable and I’m going to use it as a wristlet too!
    I even love the Bendel postcard, I think she’s walking a whippet, same dog I have!! woohoo! I’ve been on a strict budget and haven’t gotten any PSMH boxes since February (also an outstanding month) and this makes up for the “drought” LOL!!

  19. Selling this for cost + postage Totally unopened…..never even opened the outer box
    please email mskimmers (at)

  20. Not impressed. Listing my entire box.

    • I think it is the same one (in a different color) that is on sale at Sephora for $9 right now also.

  21. I love my Popsugar Must Have subscription but man, I wish I could upgrade to better shipping than FedEx SmartPost. I don’t even mind the occasional month where the curation isn’t amazing — that’s so subjective, and that “hit or miss” thing is just the nature of subscription boxes! (And generally, I end up liking almost every box anyway.) My only real complaint is how long it takes to get my box! I would pay a little more to upgrade the shipping! I just wish that was an option!

  22. I just received my box today and I like it, but don’t love it. Everything will be used though, unlike last months box. Well, except for the red card holder and code, which I have put up for swap. The bag was bigger than I thought and I do like it, but mind came with a small black smudge in the white part. If it wasn’t so noticable I would not care as much.

    • I forgot to add that I received two of the same cards as Liz , the wedding card and the pineapple card, but the third one is different, a pretty floral birthday card that’s thick and doubles as a picture that can be hung on the wall. All three cards are pretty, but I would have loved the ‘ you are beautiful’ wall pic.

  23. I am in love with this whole box. Popsugar is still my favorite box each month…unique and trendy stuff every time!

  24. This is my second month of PSMH, and I’m pretty much just “meh” about the boxes so far. It’s like they keep almost giving me exactly what I’d like, but it’s off in some critical way. (A book? I love books! Oh, it’s Judy Blume? I do not so much love Judy Blume. A Dopp kit? Cool; I love those too. Oh, that’s the pattern? No thanks, I’m good.)

    I’m using or will use a lot of the items from both June and July, but I feel like I’m making them work because I bought the subscription; I’m not really excited about any of them. Now I just need to decide whether to go ahead and cancel or wait and see what next month brings. Prospurly keeps smiling lasciviously at me from across the room…
