Everything in the May box!POPSUGAR must have box may 2016 IMG_0288

Spongelle Spongology Body Buffer ($20) I’m super excited about this one! Of course Spongelle has been in POPSUGAR before, but this is a totally new product – made to exfoliate, buff, and mositurize with organic lavender & eucalyptus extracts and sulfate-free cleansing ingredients. This product smells fantastic!

Cute little reusable jewelry bag!POPSUGAR must have box may 2016 IMG_0295

Bluma Project Capri Bracelets ($44) These bracelets are handcrafted in Guatemala by Bluma Project, which features globally inspired designs with a modern twist. Obviously the modern twist is the tassel (please stop, 2 boxes in 3 months with tassel jewelry is enough!).

If you hate the tassel I *think* you can snip it off, but it’s going to be tricky. I don’t mind the tassel so much, they’re pretty dainty. The beads on the bracelets are glass and 24k gold.

Happy Spritz Breathe Deeply Spray ($25) Shake this up before spraying, otherwise it doesn’t smell like anything! Even if you don’t do yoga you can take some nice deep minty breaths. This spray is invigorating and soothing, plus you can use it on your yoga mat. Or your face, room, or in the bathroom. Whatever you want to smell nice and minty or be soothed and balanced.POPSUGAR must have box may 2016 IMG_0292

Kocostar Foot Therapy ($10) This is a paraben-free foot treatment and when I saw this I totally thought FabFitFun copycat, but it’s totally different – it’s an AHA exfoliant (with 33 botanicals).

IMG_0316I noticed after I got them on my feet it’s a 1.5 hour deal, so I guess I’m blogging for a while tonight because I wouldn’t want to walk down the stairs wearing them. They’re tingly. I’m expecting MAGIC! I really like this, especially if it’s not a 3 week sloughing process like BabyFoot!

FYI – there’s no outer bag, the two booties are heat sealed down the middle and you cut them apart. Use the little sticker tab to seal those puppies on your feet.

JimmyBar! Peanut Butter Clutter Bar ($2.49) No artificial anything, with dates, PB, crisp brown rice, peanuts, almonds, and honey. This bar is gluten- and preservative-free. It’s  common box item and it’s tasty – I’ve eaten it plenty of times!

Gaiam Foldable Yoga Mat ($24.95) This mat is compact and ultra-lightweight and in POPSUGAR exclusive blue. I’ll be shipping mine off to Anna, our yoga reviewer, because I can’t think of a use for it besides yoga. Any ideas?

Special Extras: Theh following items are bonus items to the box and although they don’t spell it out, they are sponsored items. I’m always ok with this – it means I get more stuff!

Revlon Volume + Length Magnified Mascara ($9) I tried this out tonight against a Smashbox mascara. The Smashbox one but this was good enough for me to hang on to.

Hint Caffeine Kick Water ($2) All hint waters are flavored but with NO sweetener. Not even stevia. It’s good but my daughter loves it – so I’ll have to make sure this gets put up high because it’s infused with SIXTY mg of caffeine and it’s spicy.

There was also a coupon (shouldn’t be stackable – one per customer) from Half Hitch Goods. “Put this credit toward the purchase of a quality-crafted gift for yourself or someone you love.”

This shouldn’t even be listed on the card, the prices are nearly obscene! The $19 honey is sold out and I’m sure the $17 (for less than 8 oz!) jam is sure to follow. I’m holding on to my code (good through 6/30) in hopes that this $10 value set returns.

In looking at this box and the last it seems to me that POPSUGAR is taking box theming quite seriously and presenting more focused collections of items. This is really fun for long-term subscribers, but a miss if you aren’t into the theme. This box was pretty yoga-heavy, but there’s only one “won’t use it” item in the box for me (unless someone comes up with a suggestion for the mat!). The total value was about $137.5, although some of the items seem to have steeply inflated retail values.

      Wow that’s the best!!! Thank you! I believe Tom already spotted it and decided it would be an excellent mat to stand on while painting the kitchen. I’ll send Anna a different yoga mat ?
