May PopSugar 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 including the value. 

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.

May PopSugar Box

Contents of box with approximate retail price:

Sisters of Los Angeles Surf, Sand Love Beach Towel. Value = $40.00

Middle Kingdom Mini Plum Vase in Coral Red. Value = $20.00

Kitsch Tri'd & True Y-Shaped Necklace. Value = $32.00

Sage & Row Bare Shave Cream. Value = $17.00 

Travel Size Batiste Dry Shampoo. Value = $4.00

Hammond's Candies McCraw's Flat Taffy. Value = $1.00

The value of this box is $114.00. I didn't find this months box exciting at all. It has a summer theme but nothing that really stands out to me as fantastic. I was surprised to see that this beach towel is $40. I found it to be quite thin and would expect more for $40. The vase is really pretty and would look great in a bathroom for a pop of color. The necklace is pretty but it's not really my style. It would make a fun gift though. The boyfriend ate the taffy and said it was pretty good. I will definitely use the shaving creaming but won't use the dry shampoo : (

Verdict: This months PopSugar was just, not overly exciting.
