October 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. The price of the PopSugar Box is going up in beginning of November by $5.00 so if you're thinking about ordering do it now to save $5.00

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 way back when I first started subscribing.

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.

Max Referrals: They only reward you for the first 10 referrals. I think they're referral program is very generous but I would like to see something beyond 10 referrals. Maybe some type of point system or discount.

October PopSugar Must Have Box. 

Contents of box with approximate retail price:

Must Have Food:
The Can't Cook Book: Recipes for the Absolutely Terrified by Jessica Seinfeld. Value = $27.99

Must Have Beauty:
NYX Smokey Shadow Palette. Value = $7.00

NYX Cosmetics Liquid Liner. Value = $6.00

Julep Freedom Polymer Top Coat. Value = $18.00 - I use this as a top coat all the time. It's makes your nails super shiny but make sure you don't put it on too thick. 

Julep Nail Color in Char. Value = $14.00

The Wet Brush. Value = $14.00

Must Have Fashion:
Gorjana Charity Bali Bead Bracelet. Value = $45.00 - This is cute but it's really tiny. The good thing about it is 100% of the proceeds go to Breast Cancer Connections. 

Jane Tran Bobby Pins set of 6. Value = $12.00

Must Have Food:
The Crispery Halloween Crispycake. Value = $3.95 - This was a giant rice crispy treat that was so soft and delicious. The boyfriend grabbed it right after I took the pic, offered me a bite and ate the rest. I should've hidden it because that bite was delicious!

Special Extras:
Stitch Fix gift card. Value = $20.00 - This is basically a free month with $20 off your purchase. They send you clothes that match your style and if you like it you keep it and buy it if you don't you send it back. The size range is 0/XS-14/XL. 

The value of this box is $147.94 or $167.94 with the gift card. I felt like this box was FULL of stuff this month! At first I wasn't too excited about the cook book because I'm not terrified of cooking, I actually enjoy it very much and I'm told I do it well. When I started flipping through it I saw some pretty cook recipes so I may end up keeping it as opposed to gifting it. They NYX eye stuff is pretty cool. I have tons of eyeshadow and eyeliner right now but Christmas is coming and I'm sure the teenager would love this. I buy Julep nail color all the time and I use the polymer top coat so I was happy to see this. I was also happy that the color I got wasn't one I already had, if you can believe it. The Wet Brush isn't anything fancy but I did spend about 5 minutes brushing my hair with it. I can always use bobby pins and these ones are cute.

If anyone is interested in my stitch fix gift certificate email me. I can either email it to you or email you the code. Please only email though if you are actually going to use it. ****My gift certificate is claimed but if anyone wants to share theirs I have someone else who wants one****

Verdict: This PopSugar box was fantastic!
