October PopSugar Must Have Box

The PopSugar Must Have Box is simply awesome!  They had a rocky start with their very first box but every one since then has been awesome!  The price of the box is $35 a month w/shipping included.  They also have 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions and each one saves you a little bit of money.  The products in the last 2 boxes have been just fantastic!  PopSugar advertises that you will receive full size and premium items worth over $100 (based on the manufacturer MSRP at the time acquired by Sugar) - they don't lie!  This box contains a variety of products.  The booklet they has a sections with product information on each item which is super cool. 

I want to say thanks to Liz. B and Anna W. for using my referral link.  I received this months box free because of them.  You guys are awesome!

The good: 

Products: Full size products as promised and a nice variety of beauty, home etc.  

Pricing structure: They have monthly, 3, 6 and yearly subscriptions.  Each one (except monthly) saves you a little bit of money.  

Referrals: The offer a generous referral program.  Refer 2 people get a month free.  5 people 3 months free and 10 people is 6 months free.  

The not so good:

The price: $35 is a little high for a monthly box but you do get some really cool stuff with a value of way more than $35

Skip a month: There is no option to skip, only cancel. 

Contents of box with retail price:

Must Have Beauty
OPI Pink of Hearts Nail Polish Duo. Value = $14.95 - OPI polish is fantastic and I love these colors!

Must Have Food
bag of Dylan's Candy Bar Gummy Bears. Value = $5.00 ? - These was too chewy for me.  I prefer soft gummies. 

Special Extras
1 oz. bag Pirate's Booty aged cheddar popcorn. Value = $1.00 - Luckily I've had this before because the boyfriend got to this before me and ate the whole bag! 

FULL SIZE bottle Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy Shampoo. Value = $4.99 - great shampoo

FULL SIZE bottle Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy Conditioner. Value = $4.99 - great conditioner

The total value of this month's box is $113.92.  Once again this box is full of great stuff!  I have been wanting a pair of the grippy socks for awhile now so I was super excited to get a pair of these.  The candle is very pretty and smells nice.  I can't decide if I'm going to gift it or keep it.  I absolutely love the sparkly OPI polish.  I almost NEVER buy book sat full price I think they are way over priced so this book is not something I would normally buy but I'm glad I got it.  I always appreciate everyday items like shampoo and conditioner because it's something I would have to buy anyway.  

Verdict: PopSugar is a definite must have!  The last 2 boxes have been great, I sure hope they keep that up!

**I am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for PopSugar.  I purchase these subscriptions myself.  


  1. Oh I'm jealous you got the full sized shampoo, I got the 3oz versions. I heard that people were getting both but you are the first I've seen that got the full one!

    1. Corey - I had no idea people were getting the sample sizes instead of the full size. I wonder why they would do that and was it just random? The value of the box would still be great but I imagine people would be upset by the difference.

  2. I am so sad that i got in after they sold out of this box. But this box looks awesome

  3. and the clear hair and scalp full size at my local stores is 8.99 so super value there!
