February 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.

Special Extra:

The value of this box is $131.50 however I didn't get the ModelCo lip stuff in my box. I'm guessing it just got left out. I emailed them and they are really good about fixing issues like this so I don't expect it will be a problem. I wasn't as excited about this box as I was hoping to be. I like the color of the jewelry roll but when I've used rolls like this I find they get really bulky, although it is nice for necklaces. The nail polish is a pretty color and definitely Valentine's themed but I have so many reds already, of course PopSugar has no way of knowing that. I've argan face serum before and I didn't mind it. It kept my face feeling soft and smooth. The candle is a nice travel size and smells good in the tin. I like taking candles with me when I travel to use in bathrooms or just to make the room smell nice. I was hoping for some nice dark chocolate since it's Valentines month but cinnamon hearts are good too - although I'm not sure they are worth $7.50. The body wash, while not exciting is the most useful item in the box for me. It's not something I would use but the boyfriend definitely will.

Verdict: This months PopSugar was just ok. I felt as though I got my money's worth but I was hoping for something different.
