February 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.

The value of this box is $139.50. I have a bamboo cutting board that recently broke but this cutting board seems more special occasion than everyday. I think it's cute though and will definitely use it. The BaubleBar necklace is really cute but far too dainty for me. Of course the candy bar was delicious and I was super proud of myself for only have one little row. I can't wait to try the bubble bath. I had made a deal with myself that I would take a bath once a week, which of course only lasted a couple of months because life happens and you know the story. I don't use blush so I'll have to trade the Tarte blush and my drawer is filled with lip balms so I'm not sure I'll use this one. I do like the Fig & Rouge brand though.

Verdict: This months PopSugar was perfectly Valentines themed.
