PopSugar Must Have Summer Box.

This is the highly anticipated summer luxury box by PopSugar Must Have. This was a special edition box especially curated for summer. I had purchased this box back in March and have been eagerly awaiting for it's arrival. Like their other luxury boxes this one was priced at $100.00 but the value was promised at over that.


This is the box all the treasures were in. 

Here are all my goodies wrapped up waiting for me to open. 

Here is the Truffle pouch, Starbucks via and the S'well bottle. 

This is the Sachin + Babi sarong, the Vitabath and the Henri Bendel candle. 

This is the main event. House of Harlow Sunglasses in Lynn color Fog. 

Contents of box with retail price:

Must Have Fashion
House of Harlow Lynn sunglasses in Fog. Value = $148.00 - I really want to like these but they aren't my style. I also really like polarized lenses which I have on my current sunglasses. I'm waiting to see what everyone else gets, perhaps I can trade them with someone for a style I like.

Must Have Home
Henri Bendel Jasmine Scented Candle. Value = $30.00

Must Have Fashion
Sachin + Babi Baroque Print Foulard Sarong. Value = $50?? - I couldn't find this anywhere because the company is launching this new design through popsugar. On the Sachin + Babi website the clothes are very expensive (no less than $120) so $50 might be conservative.

Must Have Home
S'well stainless steel bottle. Value = $35.00

Must Have Fashion
Truffle Classic Clarity Pouch. Value = $38.00 - cool pouch for traveling but not worth $38

Must Have Beauty
Vitabath Fresh Citrus Twist Exfoliating Sugar Scrub. Value = $18.00

Extra
Pack of Starbucks Refreshers in Very Berry Hibiscus. Value = $5.95

The total value of this month's box is $324.95 depending on the sarong. I have to say that is an incredible value and you if like the sunglasses you get it's totally worth it! This is how I feel about it. Sunglasses are ok but not my style. Candle is alright but I might gift it since I already have tons of candles right now. If the sarong fits then that's cool. I'm holding off on opening it just in case it small and I decided to gift it. I'm hoping someone will show a pic of it on or opened. The water bottle is pretty cool. I have lots already but this one holds both hot and cold liquids and guarantees to keep them hot or cold for 24 hours - we will see about that. I will use the Truffle pouch but I would never have paid $38 for it. I will definitely use the scrub and Starbucks refreshers -which I thought was cool to include since they had a beverage bottle in the box.

Verdict: The PopSugar luxury edition box is a big gamble. Would I buy it again? Depends on my mood I guess.

  1. Did it arrive Fedex Smartpost? Were you able to see the reference number for the tracking after the fact? Mine obviously has not arrived, nor have I received a shipping notice. I am trying to puzzle this out because I am usually close to last to receive my regular box, so having my shipping info at least makes me feel like it will come soonish :-)

  2. It came through my regular mail I think but I never received a shipping notice or tracking info. My understanding is they are all going out this week so you should be getting it this week.

  4. I think your review is totally accurate. My sunglasses were Tilda gold (basically gold aviators.) Not my style but after seeing some celebs wearing them and looking cute I may try them on again after getting more dolled up. So we will see... I think sunglasses are a big gamble not just because of personal preference but because of variety in face shape. I was not a fan of the sarong but the water bottle and other items were pretty cool. I agree it's a gamble since you may or may not like the one big ticket item in their. I'm still on the fence about it.

    1. I totally agree about the glasses. I wish they would stick to big value items that aren't so dependant on someones size or face shape. I guess you can't please everyone though. I still can't get over that pouch being $38!

  5. I am debating wheter to get the men one or not. I really hated the luxury one so I am very worried about this one. But I asked if there will be a spoiler and they said there would be, so I am hoping its not just something likr supet bright shoelaces or cufflinks like last time...

    1. I was debating on getting it for my boyfriend but I'm also a little leary. He's not into off the wall clothing items for fancy soap so it would probably be lost on him. I'm very curious about it though. Maybe it will have sunglasses like this one did.

  6. Oh! I was hoping for the style you got, but I also got the Tilda. Would love to trade with someone for the Fogs.

    Overall I loved this box. I really feel like it was worth the money I spent and it got some things in my life that I never would have purchased for myself. Now I'm excited to see what the May Must-Have will have in it!

    1. Maybe someone will read this and trade with you. The glasses are growing on me but I have some maui jims I wear now and I LOVE those.
