March 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 depending on plan 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:

Bliss Micromagic Microdermabrasion Treatment. Value = $48.00

Greenmarket Purveying Co. The Archivist Lemon+Cucumber Reed Diffuser Kit Value = $20.00 - Big fan of these and this is a good combo of scents. 

Samudra Pink Piña Zip Pouch (PopSugar Exclusive). Value = $40.00 - Why are these so expensive?

Knock Knock What to Pack PadValue = $7.00 - Great for short trips. Believe it or not I always forget my toothbrush. 

Wet Brush The Squirt. Value = $4.99 - I have short hair so tangles aren't an issue for me. 

Halfpops Halfpopped Popcorn. Value = $1.69 - oh my gosh! love these!

Special Extra:

.1 oz. Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Mascara. Value = $8.00

.1 oz. Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional. Value = $4.00

The value of this box is $133.68. This month is a definite travel inspired box. This is great for me because I have a big summer trip planned. I love microderm scrubs and haven't tried the Bliss brand yet. I'm a big fan of the Dr. Brandt and Kate Somerville microderm scrubs. I'm just not too sure what to do with the plastic pouches. I still haven't used the blue one from one of the PopSugar boxes last year. And what makes them so expensive? The what to pack pad is super useful, although I usually print out a list from TravelSmith because it has everything you could possibly need on it. This one is great for short trips. I love halfpops! I've tried POREfessional before and it was ok but not something I feel like I need. I'm very curious about the roller mascara though. I like reed diffusers a lot because they aren't super strong. I put them up on our bedroom set and it scents the room nicely. 

Verdict: This months PopSugar was great and a definite value for me.
