With my recent subscription box kick, I stumbled across the Popsugar Must Have Box – yes, the Popsugar we all know and love. After checking out the past couple months of their boxes through their website and other bloggers reviews, I decided to take the plunge and subscribe for the one-month box price of $35 (free shipping included).
Each box features “must have” items categorized by home, fashion, and beauty. There are a few different subscription options for the box. Obviously, the longer you commit, the better the deal in the long run. Although it might seem a little pricey, keep in mind that the box is guaranteed to feature items totaling $100. You can subscribe for:
- $35 – 1 mo.
- $95 – 3 mo.
- $190 – 6 mo.
- $380 – 12 mo. (1 month free)
The box shipped out from California on March 4 and arrived at my door in Florida yesterday, March 12 (seemed like a lifetime waiting for this package to arrive and tracking it)! I must say, I loved a lot of the items in the box – but I was slightly disappointed with this one in comparison to what came in previous boxes (from my research). That said, I’m looking forward to the boxes ahead (and hope more home category products will make their way into my box)!
Here’s a closer look at what came in March’s box:
Heather Belle Signature Tassel Necklace
Long necklaces are all the rage in the fashion world and the inclusion of this Octagon Tassel Necklace from Heather Belle ($72) proved just that. I do love this necklace – however I’m not a fan of gold jewelry on myself so this is kind of a waste for me. Great item to regift though!
The Laundress Wool & Cashmere Shampoo
For the most part I stick with Biolage or Organix shampoos and although I’ve been pretty loyal to those brands, I was excited to see a more upscale shampoo in the box – Wool & Cashmere Shampoo from The Laundress ($19). You’d think in a sampler-type box like this one, you’d receive a much smaller sampler but surprisingly, this was a full-size 16 oz. shampoo bottle. I can’t wait to use it!
This was by far my favorite item in the box, which I’m sure you could’ve guessed if you’ve followed the Fun Findings series on our blog. From True Fabrications, this Corkatoo Corkscrew ($16) acts as a two-in-one kitchen/bar gadget as a beer can opener and foil cutter/wine opener. This absolutely just skyrocketed to my favorite kitchen accessory (and I love the color)!
Buxom Sculpted Lash Mascara
When it comes to makeup, I’m a Bare Minerals girl all the way. But between hearing my best friend (and co-blogger) Kayla rave about how great this Buxom mascara is and receiving it in this box, I’m thinking it’s a sign that I need to test it out. The Sculpted Lash Mascara ($19) seems to be at the top of the mascara review boards as well.
Hollywood Fashion Secrets Sweater Saver
This Sweater Saver accessory from Hollywood Fashion Secrets ($6) will be making it’s way into my purse immediately. Much savvier than a jumbo lint brush, this subtle brick will do the job removing pilling, fuzz and knots from your clothing (and is an eco-friendly product). I haven’t tried it yet but I think it’ll be a life saving extra in my bag when on-the-go.
The New Black Nail Polish
The Pardon My French set of The New Black nail polish ($10) came in metallic green and blue. Although I typically don’t paint my own nails (painting with my left hand gets a little sloppy) or choose these colors, I’m excited to try these out. I’ve heard great things about this brand and think these nail polish minis would be perfect to use for a weekend getaway down at the beach or by the pool.
According to my research, this month’s PopSugar Must Have box retails out at about $142 which is incredible considering I only spent $35!
