April 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 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.

April PopSugar Must Have

Contents of box with approximate retail price:

Dabney Lee Dottie Umbrella. Value = $20.00

One Love Organics Gardenia + Tea Antioxidant Body Serum. Value = $39.00

Produce Candles in Rhubarb. Value = $20.00

Flip + Tumble 24-7 Bag. Value = $12.00 

Potting Shed Creations Garden-in-a-Bag Basil. Value = $10.00

Special Extra:

Mott 50 $25 gift card. Value = $0 - Most of their stuff is pretty expensive so you're out of pocket cost would probably be in the $50 range. 

The value of this box is $101.00. I was reading some spoilers about this box before I got it and tons of people were exciting about it. I'm not sure if it was a let down because of the build up or because for me these items just aren't that exciting. 
The umbrella is really cute but unfortunately I like in drought ridden California and haven't needed an umbrella in quite some time. I am excited about the basil plant. Every time I try and grow basil it dies so maybe this will work. The body serum looks interesting. From what I can tell it's basically a spray lotion. The candle smells nice but I have tons of candles. Same for the reusable bag, cool item but I have tons of bags. 

Verdict: This months PopSugar was ok, not overly exciting but not a disappointment either.
