December PopSugar Must Have Box

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.

The December PopSugar Must Have Box.

Close up of the bracelet. I'm not a huge fan of the chain but I really like the charm. 

Contents of box with approximate retail price:

Must Have Fashion:
Lulu Frost for PopSugar Bracelet. Value = $110.00

Must Have Home:
Mixt Studio Holiday Gifting Set. Value = $9.00

Must Have Beauty:
Modelco Fibre Lashxtend Black Mascara. Value = $24.00

NCLA Peppermint Lane Nail Wraps. Value = $16.00

Must Have Home:
Govino Go Anywhere Champagne Flutes Value = $12.95

CC Made Caramel Corn. Value = $4.00

Special Extras:
Ghirardelli Squares Milk & Caramel. Value = $4.25

Ghirardelli Squares Holiday Limited Edition Assortment. Value = $4.98 - The pumpkin flavor is terrific!

The value of this box is $185.18. Obviously the big value item in this box is the bracelet. I like it a lot. I wish the chain were a little nicer but the charm has some weight to it so I get why they needed a heavy chain. I went to the Lulu Frost website and they have some really gorgeous jewels but some of it is really expensive. The wrapping paper is not really my style but I'll use it cause why not? I will definitely use the mascara and I'm not sure about the nail wraps. I like nail wraps in general but I've tried this brand before and they didn't last very long. I prefer the ones that are made from real nail polish. The  govino flutes are ok but I'm not sure I will use those either. I wish they had sent wine ones instead but I get why they sent champagne with New Year's coming up. The CC popcorn is delicious but I'm going to add this to a gift box I'm sending to family back east. I'm also going to do the same with the Ghirardelli squares but luckily there's enough for me to sneak a few squares for myself. 

Verdict: This PopSugar box definitely had a holiday feel to it. I definitely got my moneys worth with this box!
