October 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. ***The referral counts are being reset soon so you will get to refer people again if you've maxed out****

The value of this box is $114.55. I wasn't to excited by this box. It had some ok items in it but nothing I was too overjoyed about. I'll read the book, Mindy Kaling is quite funny. The satin pillowcase is nice but I have animals and white anything doesn't go with animals especially black ones. The liquor bag set is sooo not something I would use, not even for a gift. I loved the stroopwafel! I also like the body scrub and I haven't tried this brand before. The slippers are ok and I do like that they have gripper feet. I'm also happy about the leave-in product because I'm always using hair products to keep my hair healthy since I do so much crazy stuff to it. 

Verdict: This months PopSugar was an ok box.
