August PopSugar Must Have Bag

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.

Price: $35.78-$39.95 a month with no option to skip. 

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.

August PopSugar Must Have Box

Contents of box with approximate retail price:

Kendra Scott Elle Earrings in Slate. Value = $52.00

Paddywax Ocean Tide + Sea Salt Mini Jar Candle. Value = $10.00

Goodbyn Purple Meal and Dipper Set. Value = $8.00

The Mason Jar Cookie Company Cookie Mix. Value = $12.00

Lollia At Last Perfumed Shower Gel. Value = $22.00

Special Extra

thinkThin Brownie Crunch High Protein Bar. Value = $1.99

The value of this box is $127.99. The earrings looks like they are going to be heavy but they are really light. While body wash isn't exciting this is a high end body wash and something I can always use. The lip gloss is a really pretty color and it's made with fruit oils which is super neat. Another useful item is the food container. Food containers aren't exciting and I have a ton of them already but I'm in the process of tossing out old ones so this new one will fit in nicely. In the mornings I've been lighting a candle in the bathroom vanity area. I feel like the nice scent helps me start my day and it's nice to look at. This candle will be a nice addition and maybe I can visualize the ocean while getting ready for work. Anything to reduce stress right?

Verdict: This months PopSugar was great and I am very curious about the lip gloss.

  1. Whoa, that is indeed a steep price for a monthly box! I'm still curious to see what they have to offer next month though, keep this reviews coming :) Have you tried Vain Pursuits btw? I think they're similar to memebox/ipsy/those kind of stuff, but more specifically for skincare!

    1. I've heard about Vain Pursuits as well but have yet to try them out! Waiting to read up on a few reviews first!
