August 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.  PopSugar advertises that you will receive full size and premium items worth over $100 (based on the manufacturer MSRP at the time acquired by PopSugar).  The booklet they include has sections with product information on each item which is super cool.

This subscription is available in the US only and ships from Gilroy, Ca.  

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.

The value of this box is $169.64.  This is PopSugars first anniversary so as a special gift they included a anniversary gift from Gorjana. The necklace is very pretty and simple, very nice choice. I was thrilled to see the bento box and even more thrilled when I read it was dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe! The apple bowl is really quite pretty and although I probably won't use it for food I read that it's hot and cold food safe. I'm more likely to use it for a candy dish though. The body was is an interesting combination of scents that actually smell quite nice together.

Verdict: I liked this PopSugar box. The only item I might not use right away is the notebook but my mom loves making lists so I may save this for a Christmas gift.
