POPSUGAR Must Have Mini is a brand new subscription launched as a smaller alternative to the original POPSUGAR box.
Each Mini box will consist of 2 full-sized items with a total value of $30+. The items will NOT be the same as those included in the regular POPSUGAR Must Have box. However, they’ll still be great “on trend” products curated by the POPSUGAR team — ranging from beauty, household, fashion, healthy snacks, fitness gear and everything in between.
Subscriptions are $18.95/month (shipping included). No coupon codes are available for the POPSUGAR Must Have Mini Box at this time, but you can save $5 on your first “full size” POPSUGAR box ($39.95/month) with coupon code “MUSTHAVE5“.
Let’s see what’s in the April 2016 POPSUGAR Must Have Mini box!
The Mini box was (obviously) much smaller than the regular POPSUGAR box and was a solid pink with white text.
A peek inside!
An info card with tiny (mini?) text included photos, descriptions, and retail values for each item.
Greenmarket Purveying Co. White Melon Pantry Candle ($16) – I LOVE candles, so I was excited when I saw that this would be included in the box. However, I wasn’t too stoked about the selected scent — melon (blech!). That is, until I removed the bubblewrap and took a big whiff. To my surprise, this candle smells amazing. It has notes of peach, citrus, and vanilla that all seem to overshadow its namesake — which is just fine with me! The candle is made with a soy blend and hand-poured in small batches right in Pennsylvania. Each one is even signed and numbered by the makers. Neat!
Farmacy Lip Bloom in Lavender Mint ($16.50) – I think I have enough lip balms to last me until the girls graduate college (or at least high school), so I wasn’t too excited about item #2. That said, for most normal people who don’t get dozens of subscription boxes a month, I’m sure this was a welcome inclusion. The formula is made with a unique form of echinacea that forms a protective barrier on the lips, leaving them smoother, softer and fuller.
Even though I only liked half of the items in the box (which isn’t bad considering there were only 2 😉 ), I’m still happy with the debut POPSUGAR Must Have Mini box. The candle smells way better than I had anticipated and although I don’t need it, the balm seems like a pretty good quality product. The total value of both items is $32.50. Not quite as impressive as the regular POPSUGAR box, but still more than the monthly cost. I’m definitely looking forward to see what they send in the coming months!
