November 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 $39.95 a month w/shipping included.  They also have 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions and each one saves you a little bit of money.

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.  

Booklet: The include an info booklet in each box about the products. 

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: $40 is a little high for a monthly box but you do get some really cool stuff with a value of way more than $40

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.

November PopSugar Must Have Box. 

Contents of box with approximate retail price:

Must Have Food:
Maison De Monaco Strawberry & Blackcurrent Cream Preserves. Value = $6.00

Must Have Beauty:
The Soap & Paper Factory Roland Pine Shea Butter Soap. Value = $8.00

Absolute! Nail Polish Remover Pads in lavender. Value = $1.99

Must Have Fashion:
Michael Stars Folk Art Wrap. Value = $42.00

Must Have Home:
Illume Naughty Boxed Candle in white musk scent. Value = $15.75

Land's End Single Canvas Wine Tote. Value = $14.99

$30.00 CanvasPop Gift Card. Value = $15.00 - I valued this at $15 because you can get a rolled  8x10 print for $30 but shipping is $15.00. 

Special Extras:
Barefruit Sea Salt Caramel Apple Chips. Value = $1.00 - wish I could tell you these were delicious but the boyfriend ate them and didn't save me any. He didn't comment on it so I'm guessing they were good. 

The value of this box is $89.73 not including the gift card. The big item in this box is the wrap. I didn't want to take it out of the package because I may be gifting it for Christmas. It looks like a nice wrap but aztec print usually isn't my thing. It will go in the gift pile for now but I may change my mind later. The shea soap has a super pine smell to it. I'm not sure I want to walk around smelling like a pine tree. I'm really hoping the polish remover pads work. I took a bunch of the single use remover pads with me to Vegas and they were great. If these work well I'll be investing in these for upcoming cruise next year. The illume candle is ok but I'm not a fan of the scent. I was thinking of gifting this to my boyfriends mom but I'm not sure giving her a candle that says naughty on it is appropriate. Also we work on Christmas so we will have our big gathering the weekend after and I always feel weird giving Christmas stuff after Christmas. I love the canvas wine tote carrier but we have neoprene wine carriers we use that helps keep the wine at the right temp and it's padded which is nice. As I'm typing this I'm thinking I might keep this with my grocery bags to use when I buy wine at the store. Well I'm glad I worked that out. 

Verdict: This PopSugar box was good and I think I got some holiday gifts out of it which is great!
