POPSUGAR Must Have Box - June 2017

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo: A Novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid

From Amazon:

Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one in the journalism community is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now?

Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband, David, has left her, and her career has stagnated. Regardless of why Evelyn has chosen her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.

Summoned to Evelyn’s Upper East Side apartment, Monique listens as Evelyn unfurls her story: from making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the late 80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way. As Evelyn’s life unfolds—revealing a ruthless ambition, an unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love—Monique begins to feel a very a real connection to the actress. But as Evelyn’s story catches up with the present, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.


Captain Blankenship Mermaid Sea Salt Hair Spray – Value $24

This spray is made with all organic and natural ingredients: Water, Atlantic Sea Salt, Organic Aloe Vera, Organic Sea Kelp Extract, Organic Rose Geranium Essential Oil & Organic Palmarosa Essential Oil.

Make sure to check out POPSUGAR’s before and after post for tips on how to style it!

Aloha Collection Mid-Size Ocean Coco Palms Pouch – Value $36

Pack your waterside essentials in this splash-proof zip pouch. The print will encourage you to get on island time and will protect your snacks, sea salt spray, and hat. You can also use it to store your wetsuit, dirty gym clothes, or other essentials as you run around town.

This pouch is made from 100% coated Tyvek, so it is splash proof. (They don’t call it waterproof, since you can’t submerge it in a pool for example, and expect there to be no leaks onto any items inside the bag.)

But it is perfect to use as a swimsuit bag, makeup bag, beach clutch, etc.

The material has a crinkly feel, but it is still pretty soft. And it measures 11.5″ across x 2″ wide x 8.5″ tall so it can store a lot. Here it is with a few items to give you a better sense of scale:

  1. I really hate this box. Especially if the included item is a hat like that. But, no biggie. This is just the nature of someone else shopping for you and a whole lot of other people, as a surprise. It’s the nature of these services. I’d say my love/hate for this box, after getting it for a year, is probably around 70/30 and that’s ok for a surprise service of this nature. I hate when people act like it should be 100% they get what they love all the time. If you need that, then you should shop for yourself.

  2. Has anyone heard about shipping delays? I still don’t have a tracking number…

    • Nicole – I sent a message asking and got a response of “as noted in our FAQs, your box will ship by the 20th of the month”

      Recently I’ve had mine in hand much earlier in the month (around the 13th). FedEx “smart” post shipping takes a 6-8 days to get to me. So if they ship on the 20th, I won’t get it until the 28th.
      At least there isn’t anything I’m anxious to receive in this box 😉

      • Thank you, Anna! I normally receive my tracking on the second Friday of the month [would have been the 9th this month] so I was just curious. I always worry that I’m going to forget about a box. Definitely not excited about this box. Going to get rid of the spray and the cuticle oil. I literally just unloaded the last cuticle oil they sent out yesterday and now I’ll have another one to get rid of.

      • Just received this email from them. They should have notified us sooner. I should have the box by now.:

        We hope your Summer is off to a great start!

        Just a quick note to let you know that your June Must Have box may be arriving at your doorstep a little later than usual. Unfortunately, one of the products in the box was delayed in getting to our warehouse. We are working as fast as we can to ensure your box arrives to you in great condition. Boxes have begun to ship and all boxes will ship by the 22nd of this month. You will receive tracking once your box ships. We can’t wait for you to see what’s in it!

        If you have any questions, please reach out to us at [email protected]. We’re here to help.


        The POPSUGAR Must Have Team

  3. Has anyone ever tried salt spray on a pixie cut? I have pretty fine hair, mostly straight, so “waves” are out of reach. I have several of these now and am wondering if they are actually the wonderful texturizing product I never knew I always wanted?

    • Try them. They will basically thicken your hair and give you some texture. I used to use them every day when I had short hair (also straight and fine, but I have a lot of hair)

    • I just started using one and like it a lot. I recently stopped dyeing my hair and it turns out that in its natural state it’s really limp. With the sea salt spray I’m getting better results with my mousse.

  4. I love this box – all four things fit well within the theme. This was absolutely worth the money for me considering I got it during the sale. Even without that, though, this set of stuff seems great for the summer.

  5. Where is our review? The May box review came out on the 4th. The March box review came out on the 3rd. Heck, the February box review was released the last day of January! The April review was the latest, at the 6th. We are already on the 13th of June. What’s happened?

  6. It’s like they are stretching out these spoilers just to get my hopes up and then give me a little more buyer’s remorse each time.

    • Haha, I couldn’t agree more. I have been a subscriber for years and this box looks like one of the worst ever (for me).

      • I agree! One of the worst. The book would have been nice if it weren’t for my getting it as a Book of the Month extra….

  7. I think the box fits the theme really well. This hat will be great for going out on our boat. The book is not my bag, but I can find a home for it I’m sure. Love the pouch, very summery!

  8. I think a hat like this (if that’s what it turns out being) is great! It’s very on-trend and different than the typical fedora that boxes usually send. I bought one similar last year and it’s perfect for the pool. I’m not getting this box, but would love to swap for it!

  9. I actually really love this box!! It’s perfect for a day at the pool/beach. I get we all have different likes/dislikes but this is a win for me! I wear hats a lot and I think this is cute! Personally I have loved April, May, and June so far! Didn’t like March but honestly the lunch box was so cute, I use the highlighter daily, and I actually use the red bag (can you believe it??) Bc it’s convenient and waterproof-ish. So I gotta say, even the one I didn’t like I’m still using. Here’s for one more item + a yummy snack for June! 🙂

    • Totally agree!!! I was skeptical about the red bag but it’s actually super cool and I use it all the time. It’s the perfect size and also cool for going to the beach or on a boat bc of the plastic. If you think outside the box you can make these different items work. I am thrilled to get a baseball cap ( or hopefully get a baseball cap) instead of a straw hat! I wear hats all summer so this is a hit for me! The book is a hit, as it looks like a good read and the pouch and salt spray are awesome- I have naturally curly hair and I find salt spray holds my curls in the humidity and doesn’t make them stiff like hairspray…- it’s also good to scrunch damp hair. Love this month!!!

  10. I was debating getting back into PS after taking a little break, and when I caved and re-subbed…this is the box it had to be. Sigh. I actually do like the hat, but that book is 100% not my genre, I have a million pouches already, and I tried sea spray once and will never do it again. (I have thick frizzy hair and if I don’t straighten it, yiiiiiikes, so using a texturizing spray is a nightmare for me.) Looks like I’ll be canceling after one box and not looking back a second time.

  11. I hoped the waves was for the salt spray but maybe it’s for this instead. Does that mean the mermaid item is the salt spray?

  12. This gets my vote for worst box ever.

    • Beth – worse than the red plastic purse box?

      (I did use the watermelon “lunch box” for watermelon twice, but the plastic purse, photo album & highlighter are collecting dust and the marshmallows are in the pantry. )

      • I have to admit…I’ve used the red plastic purse as a travel bag for my toiletries and it’s working out better than my previous bag. Being able to see where things are is nice. I gave the watermelon lunch box to my nephew and the photo album and highligher to the trash can.

  13. This is the first time I’ve ever actually wanted a PopSugar box. I can tell I’m in the minority, but I love all of the spoilers! I burn easily no matter how much sunscreen I use, so a hat is a must-have. (Plus I actually think the hat is cute.) I like light reads over the summer when I’m not up to my eyeballs in law journals and ethnographies. I have stick-straight hair so the hair spray sounds amazing. And I love the pouch! I’ll probably actually snag one of these boxes.

    • I agree with you. I like this box and am thinking about getting it. I think the hat is cute and wear ball caps to baseball games and when I’m outside. The bag is cute and the spray will be fun to try. The only thing I’m bummed about is that I picked the book as my BOTM club book ☹️ But I will probably give it to my mom to read. For those that are complaining I’ve been where you are. I began to hate Boxycharm because seriously who needs a damn highlighter every month? But cancel and try something new.

  14. Well so far this box is gearing up to be a 50/50 split between my 19 yo daughter and myself. She will wear the hat to work (she is a lifeguard) and she loves those texturing sprays. I will read the book and probably keep the pouch since she took my last couple of pouches.

  15. I checked out the Billabong website. This is probably the best hat on the site. (This is not a compliment). Man, I hope it’s a towel. :-p

  16. I like the spoilers so far, but no way Im paying $40 for the box. June box seems unpopular so Im going to take my chances with the next mistery box.

  17. Yiiikes, this box is awful. I hope there’s something delicious in this box, because I am going to need a comfort snack when it arrives.

    • Agreed. Gotta be one of the worst, if not the worst, in 2 years I’ve been getting it. A trucker hat?! 🙄

    • I agree! Just cancelled my subscription. A cheesy novel and matching trucker hat?!? Yikes!

    • Ha! A big bowl of cheese dip and chips maybe . . . summer in general seems to trip up the folks assembling these boxes. I remember last year was terrible!

  18. Sometimes I have to remind myself that the reason I’m getting these boxes is to push me out of my comfort zone and try new things I never normally would.

    1) I like the pouch even though blue isn’t my favorite color
    2) My hair is already a dreadful mess so I’ll either swap or gift the hair stuff
    3) The book is nowhere near my style so I’ll either give it a go anyway or swap
    4) The hat is way different from what I normally wear (just winter hats) and a color I doubt will look even halfway decent on me but I’ll try it.

    It’s obviously not something I would curate for myself but again that’s kinda the point for me. As well as saving lots of money and trying out different things.

  19. Oh please not that awful hat. I literally gasped when I saw it. So tragic!

  20. Oh dear. Hopefully it’s the towel! Oh well, my four year old will steal it anyway if it’s the pink hat.

    • Okay just looked again, it’s not really pink, but still. 😉

  21. The bag/pouch is literally the only thing in this box that i would even use. Sadness. That hat is ugly. I dont even own a single trucker hat, nor would i wear one.

  22. Well if it’s not that hat, they’re not very good at this spoiler game.

    brightside: you can use it when you undoubtedly put way too much of that salt spray mermaid stuff in your hair 😬

    • Lol!

    • lmao

  23. Oh please not that ugly hat!!! I actually like the first 3 items but the hat is so not good! I agree that it doesn’t even look good on the pretty blonde girl. It sure wouldn’t look good on someone my age. Tacky and cheap looking.

  24. I know I’m in the minority, but I love the hat and would wear the heck out of it. Not enough to get the box though, lol. Should I ever get back into swapping, looks like there will be plenty there, so all is not lost, ladies!

    • I like the hat. It’s cute to wear just out walking my dog or to the grocery store.

      • The hat is cute! Why not? It’s summery and very, very welcome on outrageous humidity days.

    • I love the hat- there’s a cute anchor hat on the site which fits with that mermaid theme.. I’m so excited for a new baseball cap!!! I like all the designs on the site- if it’s not a towel but rather a towel that vali love towel is everything !! Love this month!! I just finished up my book and can’t wait for the new read! I love sea salt spray in the summer and that pouch is awesome for travel !!! This box screams summer ! I am so excited!! When will my box ship!??

    • I like the hat, and I’m not even much of a hat person… so there’s that. I think I like this box, even though I’m in the minority it seems with that opinion. Plus, it didn’t actually say the 4th spoiler was for sure going to be the hat did it? Just something from the Billabong line? They have several other “wave” items on the site so there is still hope for those who aren’t feeling this hat.

      • I may be wrong but I don’t think it is this hat. If it is then why doesn’t PopSugar just say the box will include a hat?

  25. I hope it’s not that stupid hat!

  26. It’s kind of weird that it’s almost half way through the month and we don’t have full spoilers or shipping confirmations. Makes me think Popsugar is desperate to get more people to buy June before they reveal the entire contents? I agree with most of the other comments that I am reeeallly hoping it is NOT that hat. Ugh.

    • I have my shipping email already. It’s coming from CA and I live on the East Coast so it’s a long slow trip but mine is scheduled to be here on Monday

    • This spoiler by spoiler isn’t working for me either!
      Much more fun the usual way where we have the entire box spoiler!

      • Same. I have a sub paid already. Just let me anxiously await whatever items I’ll like and arrange to get rid of others than other people want more p

  27. Not feeling the Trucker Hat so I’m hoping the theme “Waves” isn’t so connected to this spoiler picture and instead maybe just a play on the Billabong logo or from maybe a “Waves” product line

    • Oh my gosh, I hope we get the towel. Do not like that hat at all, and I will actually USE the towel.

    • Nice catch! The towel would be so much better than the hat. Also why would PS say, “can you guess what it is?” while showing a picture of the Wave hat? The post infers it’s something else. If I’m wrong, I’ll eat my…nevermind.

  28. I’ve never been happier than to NOT be a subscriber – this box is so bad it’s laughable!

  29. A lot of people are complaining but this is a perfect summer box!! Beach bag, summer hat, sea salt spray throw in the snack and i can see myself laying down reading the book

    • Agree!! Great box!

  30. Oh God NOOOOOOOOO! I like the first 3 spoilers but if we get one of these I will donate it to charity. I wish PS would go ahead and announce the entire box and forget these spoilers.

  31. Wow, this box is a bust for me. IMO that hat doesn’t even look good on the model so there’s no hope that it would work for me (I would actually look like an overweight trucker in it!).

    The book isn’t my type of material. I don’t understand sea sprays….my hair always looks hideous after a day at the beach so I really don’t get it at all).

    The bag is ok, but I wouldn’t be horribly said to not get it (since I have so many bags anyway).


  32. I’m really not a hat person, but it’s not as awful as everyone thinks lol. With all these hats I’ve been getting lately, someone’s trying to tell me I need to wear hats. Although that sea grass hat I got in the ultimate Popsugar box made me look like a bum. My 3 year old looks cute in it though😁 The hat in the June box just doesn’t fit the book. I would expect a little more of a dramatic hat😜

  33. This is my first box and sad to say probably my last. I don’t care for any of the spoilers. I don’t read paper books nor do i wear baseball caps. I have super curly hair that I straighten daily so Salt sprays are a no go for me. I bought two Fabfitfun boxes with the way cuter Milly Bags… UGh how disappointing. After many months of stalking this sub i finally gave in for what seems to be the sadest box of them all. =(

    • Jammie, don’t give up on Popsugar yet. My first box was a summer box as well and I was very disappointed, but towards the end of the year they had some amazing boxes!

  34. That hat is gross. There aren’t many Billabong accessories on their website and I’m sure backpacks and totes would be excluded since there is already a pouch, so if luck swings in the favor of subscribers, maybe they will send out a beach towel instead of a trucker hat.

  35. I’m really not a hat person, but it’s not as awful as everyone thinks lol. With all these hats I’ve been getting lately, someone’s trying to tell me I need to wear hats. Although that sea grass hat I got in the ultimate Popsugar box made me look like a bum. My 3 year old looks cute in it though😁

  36. I am actually digging the hat 🙂

  37. Well, I just canceled my subscription, but I’m still stuck with the June box 🙁 I can’t think of anyone who will want that butt-ugly hat, and I’m overrun with bags and sea sprays. At least I can give the book to my mother. I’ve only been subscribed for a couple of months, but it sure seems like they’ve gone downhill from what they were when I first started watching this sub. May still grab an LE on occasion, but I’m done with the monthly unless they step it back up!

  38. My debit card number was stolen and I didn’t have my replacement card in time to update my billing info for this month’s box…. and I am not even a little bit sad about that. This is the first box I’ve missed since 2015 when I started, and I don’t feel like I’m missing out in the slightest.

    • Ditto,( except since 2013,I think)

    • My debit card number was stolen too about a month and a half or so ago!!! My card number was used in california and i live in new york and used my card earlier that day so thankfully it redflagged my bank and i was able to stop it quickly. Do you know where yours was used?

      • Mine was stolen about a month ago (again!) as well. Interestingly, it happened right after I had re-subbed to Julep. The Julep site was the culprit last year when my card was stolen… You didn’t happen to purchase anything from Julep, did you?.. wondering if they could be the culprit this time, too.

        • I only ordered from julep once and it was in like November. I had ordered a few things from eBay and I was still getting all my monthly subs at the time. I have not given my new info to keep any subs going since. Except for cuz I can’t let that one go lol. I’m too scared toget hacked again. From now on im gonna use a prepaid visa or something for purchases. I was planning on cancelling all my subs any way for months but couldn’t do it so that helped. Lol

  39. These boxes have gotten so bad…I kind of want to cry.

    • Please not the hat! What happened to these boxes?? 😭

  40. Ugh, Is it too lateto cancel this box?

  41. I don’t like a single thing this month. Usually I like at least one item. Yeesh.

  42. definitely my least favorite box to date…. too bad.

    • that said.. if you wanna swap, lmk!

  43. I don’t think that hat will be popular, assuming that’s the item; however, I actually like it…and the book…and the wave spray…and the pouch isn’t bad either.
    I haven’t gotten Popsugar since March but I might have to do a one time box for this one.

    • I like it too. My step daughter and daughter in law wear hats like that all the time. They are 48 and 34.

    • I’m very happy to sell my box and ship it to you if you’d like!

      • Or swap it! Swap profile is linked.

    • The worst thing about my pop sugar boxes is the negativity from the subscribers. If you don’t like the mystery of the “grab bag” subscription then just cancel and go spend your 40 bucks on something else. Why even subscribe at all if all you’re going to do is complain about it. Best of all, that piece of advice is FREE!

  44. That janky trucker cap is on the website for $17.95. I feel like I have been punked Ashton K.

  45. If it’s that hat, me and PopSugar are going to have a come-to-Jesus meeting.

    • Amen! 🙂

    • DYING! And, “Can I get an AMEN?!?”

      • AMEN 🙏🏼

    • If it is indeed the hat…I have a feeling it may be one of those items that will be unswappable.

      • Nope! Not unswappable. I’ll probably get back into swapping just for one or two of these hats.

        I live in ballcaps (mornings and errands) and this retro hat makes me wanna go to Venice Beach! ❤️ (Or summer camp with Kristy McNichol circa 1980, lol).

  46. …….. in case anyone missed out and wants the whole box, I know someone who’s willing to sell.. ….. 😀

    • Would you be will to swap for at least partial value? (If youndont find enough to swap for, I could pay the differemce in cash. I just don’t want to spend $40 right now.)
      I have the entire Beautyfix box for June up for swap plus some other goodies.
      I will link my swap profile.

        • Melody, I spoke too soon…. my niece wants the pouch and mermaid spray….. I adore her so what she wants, she gets!! 🙂 I would swap the hat and the book….. and whatever other special items might be included…. read the comments up above …. there is another woman who wants to sell hers…. or please let me know what it was you “really” wanted….. ok? …. I’m sorry…. I should always check in with Ali first…. 🙁

  47. A trucker hat? Seriously?

    • I know! So tacky and so 10 years ago.

      • That’s it! It looks like one of those Von Dutch hats circa 2005.

  48. This box looks okay, but still not worth $40 to me.

  49. based on one of the clues being Waves I’m pretty sure the Bilibong item is the hat pictured that says WAVES….

    • Lol – I sure hope you are wrong about that. No more hats please

    • lol that made me laugh…and is probably true.

      It’s June 12th…should the entire box be spoiled already?

    • I had the same thought based on the spoiler theme! Really hope it’s not the hat. Nothing I’d ever wear. 🙁 I don’t think they’ve ever released this many spoilers before complete spoilers came out. Must be in need of subscribers.
