January PopSugar Must Have

The PopSugar Must Have Box is a monthly subscription box that is geared toward many aspects of your lifestyle.  It includes, food, beauty, fashion, tech, and all kinds of other treasures.  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).  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 Catherine H., Jannet Y., Barbara H., Merina G., and Ashley S. 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.  I've was super lucky and 10 people used my referral link so I got 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. 

January PopSugar Treasures. 

This was also in the box and I'm totally excited about getting it!

Contents of box with retail price:

Must Have Fitness
Marrithew 65 cm Stability Ball. Value = $38.99 ( 5'7-6'1)

Must Have Fashion
The Remix Timebomb Watch in Pink. Value = $44.95 **The watch they sent was broken.  The LED lights didn't work, I contacted customer service and they sent me a replacement but the replacement is black.  I guess that's a better neutral color but pink was kind of fun. 

Must Have Beauty
Epicuren Discovery Lip Balm Value = $9.00 - This is tingly on my lips and I really liked the way it felt.  I wish it were in tube form though because I hate sticking my fingers in the little pots of lip goo. 

Must Have Food
(2) Popbar Hot Chocolate on a stick, one milk chocolate and one dark chocolate.  Value = $2.99/ea.

Must Have Food
Jet-puffed Vanilla Mallow Bits. Value = $1.99

The total value of this month's box is $106.58. I was super excited to see the stability ball in this box because I used to have one but one of my naughty kitties punctured it and it went flat.  What I was disappointed about was the size.  It's made for people 5'7"-6'1" and I'm 5'2".  I wonder why they would send the large one our since it's mostly women who buy this box and according to the CDC the average height of women in America is about 5'4".  I'm still happy with it and since the boyfriend is 6' he'll be able to use it as well.  The watch it ok if you like those sort of things but honestly I haven't worn a watch in several years and I don't have any desire to.  I did notice on the company website that they are in pre-sale status so it looks like they haven't even come out yet.  It's kind of cool to get a product that's not even for sale yet.  The lip balm is great.  The weather here in California has been crazy and causing all kinds of drama for my lips.  All the Think Thin bars will go in my quick snack bin and I'm sure the boyfriend and teenager will be all over the hot chocolate on a stick things - they look delicious! 

Verdict: PopSugar is a great box if you want more than just beauty products.   

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