December PopSugar Must Have

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.

Contents of box with approximate retail price:

Sparklepop Sydney 18k gold plate Necklace. Value = $42.00

Canvas Dauville Platinum Bowl. Value = $29.00

Smashbox Be Legendary Long-Wear Lip Lacquer in Bordeaux. Value = $24.00 - It's super dark but I love the color. 

Knot & Bow Parcel Tags, set of 10. Value = $4.00

Williams-Sonoma Cupcake Mix in Vanilla Bean. Value = $14.95

The value of this box is $175.95. I was excited to see this box today, usually I get it much later in the month. I tell ya with all these subscription boxes I'm set in scarves. I really need to make a conscious effort to wear them more often. The necklace is actually really pretty and I was surprised at how long it is. It would like nice with a long sweater. The bowl is nice except it has an unfinished texture on the outside. I don't know why but that always feels weird to me. I like the inside though, it's super sparkly and shiny. I'm thinking of saving the cupcake mix for New Year's, sounds like a new years type of dessert to me. Although I'm not sure how well it will go with my Gumbo. I'm loving the color of the lip stuff. It's dark but I think I can pull it off. 

Verdict: This months PopSugar was fantastic and a terrific value!
