January 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:

Jack + Lucy Pom Pom Hat. Value = $32.00

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. Value = $28.00

KeepCup Brew 12-ounce reusable coffee cup. Value = $26.00

Manuka eQua Hand Towel. Value = $16.00

ToGoSpa Eyes Ice. Value = $12.50

Skin Jewel Tattoos: Empire. Value = $18.00

General Mills Nature Valley Protein Granola. Value = $3.68

The value of this box is $136.18. This box was kind of odd to me. One of the items seemed to be tossed in for filler, like the tattoos. I guess they could be fun but I really feel like I'm to old for sticker tattoos. The hat is really cute but try as I might hats just don't look good on me. My face is way too round. I do love the reusable coffee cup. I swear I have so many of these little gadget cups but I actually do use them. The eye things are very useful for me because when I travel I get puffy eye. I'm sure it's a combination of elevation change, salt, etc. I may or may not use the hand towel. I used to take Yoga classes but I switched gyms and they don't offer yoga and even if they did they provide towels. The teenager dances though so maybe she could use it. What I noticed about the towel is the name, Manuka. I was a Camp Fire Girl back in the day and went to Camp Manuka as a kid and later went as a camp counselor. The name brought on a little moment of nostalgia for me. The granola is pretty tasty, a nice combination of peanut butter and chocolate, be careful though granola is NOT a low calorie food. I'm swimming in lotions right now but I've tried this brand before and it's a good one. 

Verdict: This months PopSugar has a great value.
