I had already peeked at the spoilers for this, but I was still excited to see the pink box in my mailbox.

POPSUGAR May 2016 Mini Must Have Box Review
The May 2016 POPSUGAR Must Have Mini included the following items:

~Zingo Infuser ($9.99): This is a 22oz citrus-infuser bottle.  The bottom comes off, and you press your choice of citrus fruit (half of an orange, lemon, lime, etc.) into the reamer and off you go.  Water bottles pop up quite a bit in subscription boxes, and I think I have even received a Zingo before (I know I have one at my house from somewhere), but everyone in my house uses them, and they do get gross after a while.  I was curious why this plastic (it’s BPA/Halogen and Phthalates free) is frosted, but the website says that it’s to hide scuffs, cloudiness, or any other wear and tear.  That makes complete sense and is pretty smart. Citrus infused water like this will get cloudy, and I don’t love to see it.

~H2O+ Oasis Hydrating Treatment (Full-Size) ($36): According to the card, this treatment has been the best selling product from H2O+ for over 25 years.  I can’t believe I hadn’t heard about it by now.  I am still using the Farmacy night cream from the April full-sized box and will be adding this into my routine since it’s to be used in the morning.  It has almost a gel-like consistency, and a little bit goes a LONG way. It felt amazing on my skin and could become a new favorite of mine.

All totaled the May 2016 POPSUGAR Must Have Mini box had a value of $45.99.  The information card shows a value of $50.99, but I grabbed the prices directly from the product websites, so I don’t know where the discrepancy is.  Either way, it’s a great value for $18.95, and so far this box has been full of items I would have picked for myself.  I wouldn’t be sad if they tossed in a small snack or “bonus” (sponsored) item every once in a while either, though.

    I think the second box was a success! Like you said, water bottles get kind of gross after awhile, so it’s nice to have a few extra around! I’m looking forward to trying a lemon/lime/orange combo for the water!

      Glad it’s just not mine that get all gross.

        Just following up, he definitely stole it! (HA) – he said, “Sharing is caring!” Hahahahha.

        Glad I can “Share”

          LOL!!!!!! My kids yell “SHARE” when they want whatever the other one has. They think just because they say “share” the other one should turn it over.
