May 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.

Must Have Food:
Hi I'm Skinny Sticks Multi-Grain Sweet Onion. Value = $4.00 - These had a nice flavor but were a little dry. They would be perfect with some type of dip. 

The value of this box is $115.00. Honestly I was a little disappointed in this box. There was still a good value to the box for me but a few items I won't be using. Let's start with the Smell Bent product. I love the smell of this product. It's a combination of suntan oil, beach and summer. I don't know that I would pay $45 for it but I will definitely use it. The other thing I was excited about is the Zinger bottle. I keep seeing these type of water bottles and almost bought one and now I'm glad I didn't. I had strawberry infused water once at a hotel and it was fantastic. The Skinny Sticks were tasty but dry. I was thinking they needed some type of sour cream based dip to go with it but then it wouldn't be a low calorie snack. Maybe a greek yogurt based dip would be better. The items I weren't too thrilled with are the face mask. I actually use face masks but this one seems very basic and not worth $24. I've tried and tried to get into using workout DVD's but just don't use them. The nail polish is very summery but I'm sure in my collection of 100 nail polishes I have one that is a similar color, that has nothing to do with PopSugar though. I'm sure I can find homes for those items or trade them for something I really want.

Verdict: This months PopSugar was ok, I did get the water bottle I've been wanting and the smell good stuff smells great!
