October 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.

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.

The Blue Jean Bar Blue Jean Box $40 credit. Value = $0

The value of this box is $113.75. I am super excited about the butter london eyeliner. I'm a big fan of their eyeliner. It goes on smooth and the colors are great! I was also super excited about the Dean & Deluca maltballs because I love their products and I love pumpkin. They were good but not as phenomenal as I wanted them to be. The socks are really cute. I don't normally wear printed socks but I might make an exception for these. The acrylic frame is kinda fun and really heavy. I think I might save this for a gift. The chalkboard candle is cute but I really don't know what I'm going to do with it. In my world the boyfriend and I would leave messages for each other on it but the reality is that probably won't happen. The K. Hall soap is really pretty. It's one of those soaps with the logo printed on it making it look all fancy. It's a sponsored item from Progresso which means they paid to put have this put in the box. My question is what does shea butter soap have to do with Progresso soap? Weird.  The Blue Jean Bar is a new subscription service for clothing. You give them a bunch of info about your style, pay a $20 styling fee and they will send you several items of clothing to try. The price range of the clothing is $50-$400. If you purchase one of the items your $20 styling fee will be refunded.  I'm undecided if I will use this or not but sounds interesting.

Verdict: This months PopSugar had a couple of items I will definitely use and maybe a gift or two also.
