POPSUGAR Must Have Mini is a less expensive subscription box from POPSUGAR Must Have! The subscription 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.)

Meri Meri Mini Gold Star Garland – Value $10

popsugar-mini-november-2016-001-2

This mini garland is adorable! The stars are covered with gold glitter, and the neon string is the perfect accent. It’s great for decorating mini things, too:

(The packaging says it measures 6 feet, but mine was a little less than that.)

And it also looks lovely strung up!

I think this would look great behind a bar setup for a holiday party! Or just placed around centerpiece items on a table to add a little sparkle.

Juara Tumeric Antioxidant Radiance Mask – Value $38

Yay! I really love the ingredient-conscious Juara brand, and I was thrilled to see this full-size mask in the box!

And this mask also came with a bonus sample:

Juara Radiance Enzyme Scrub – 3 ml Value $1.50

popsugar-must-have-mini-november-2016-0006

This is a non-drying clay mask designed to detoxify and brighten skin. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes, and you may feel a slight tingling (I did). I was concerned this mask might not work with my sensitive skin, but my skin felt back to normal a minute after removing it. (It was a little red for about 20 seconds, but that might have been just from rinsing and rubbing the mask off with a washcloth.)

This mask definitely made my skin feel cleaner, smoother, and perfectly primed for makeup!

The scrub was excellent, too. If you prefer a facial scrub with fine exfoliating particles, I think you will love this. (And it didn’t dry my skin out!)

Verdict: This box has a retail value of $49.50. I think that’s a great value for this box, especially since they’ve lowered the price to $15.95. And I love both items, so that’s a win!

  1. Hi Liz, I have sensitive skin too, specifically rosacea. Do you think I can still use this mask? I got it with my December PSMH box and I really want to try it, but I’m afraid to! It says it’s supposed to be okay for sensitive skin, but I’m not sure how sensitive.

  2. Fun idea. I would of rather have been sent the stuff to make one instead. Plus you can put your own stamp on it and make in the color and as big or small. This would be perfect in an office and many other places. The mask looks amazing too.

  3. I have yet to want any of these mini boxes…but this is one of the better ones, IMO.

  4. Underwhelmed.

  5. I cancelled the regular box for November so I may pick up the mini now. I like both items in this box. The garland is so cute and would be nice to decorate my cubicle at work

    • I was thinking of picking up the box to use the garland to decorate my cubicle at work, too!
      Something about a cubicle screams for glittery gold stars, I guess!

      • So funny – that’s immediately where my head went to also. I love stars, I love glitter, would be perfect!

  6. I’d be interested in the star garland if anyone wants to swap theirs. I could use a few of them for my daughter’s dorm apt for the holidays -they’ll be perfect!

  7. I like this box more than last months hope they can keep it up.

    • Ditto

  8. Great value and I like the mask, but I have way too many to go through already. I have a hard time remembering to incorporate them in my routine as it is. If it was face lotion, a serum or scrub I’d be all over it!

  9. Well I think tge stars are cute. The mask will be swapped. Who is interested?
    Let me know!

    • I’d be interested. 🙂 Check out my swap page!

  10. hi Liz! If i subscribe this. Friday ( Nov11 payday 😉 would this be my first box? I’m addicted to face masks! Thanks for the great review 🙂

    • Right now, the November box is still available as your first box if you start a subscription. With POPSUGAR boxes, the first month your subscription starts with is dependent on how quickly their inventory sells out, so I can’t say for certain if it will be available Friday, but I hope so for you! 🙂

      • Great! I hope so as well! Thanks so much for the info 🙂

  11. Cute box but I have quite the backlog of facemarks at this point…

  12. I was hoping this would have a candle or something more home related as the main item since their bigger box was a great home box this month. I’ve never received a mini but almost pulled the trigger yesterday. Now I’m glad I didn’t. I see value in the box for sure but i get enough masks from my beauty boxes and look towards PSMH for lifestyle items

  13. This makes me wasn’t to re-sub so bad- I want that face mask. 🙁 Decisions Decisions

  14. So glad I cancelled last month. That’s all!
