PopSugar Must Have February 2015

PopSugar Must Have is a monthly lifestyle box that includes fashion, beauty, home decor, fitness, accessories, food, and other items that Lisa Sugar of POPSUGAR and the editorial staff hand select. Items are full size and premium items that are classics, celebrity favorites, and new brands. They may include a few sample items for fun. Items are said to be valued at over $100 per box. Most boxes are identical but they do personalize some, as they ask you to answer a 13 question "preference" quiz. Oddly they ask your shoe size? But also ask if you prefer yellow or white gold and skin tone, hair color, eye color, skin type, fragrance "type" preference, if you like cool or warm colors, if you prefer necklaces, earrings, or bracelets, and if your ears are pierced, shirt size and what you describe your personal style as (urban cool, trendsetter, bohemian, classic, sporty, or feminine).

PopSugar Must Have is $39.95/month, $109.85/3 months, or $214.70/6 months. Once a long term subscription runs out it will auto-renew at the monthly rate. Bills of the 25th of the month. Cancel anytime before the 23rd of the month. They send a tracking number via email, when it ships by the 20th of each month. If you fail to receive a box you do have to notify them in writing within 4 weeks.  You have a user login for their website where you can access your account. 

The items you receive  are usually full size but the included pamphlet tells you about them and where to buy them since they aren't available for purchase from the PopSugar website. PopSugar also often has specialty boxes, such as the Resort Box that will ship March 31st and is available to buy now for $100. The Resort Box is a special edition box that is valued over $400. (The Resort Box is SOLD OUT as of this posting, don't worry though, I ordered one!)

Their referral program is for free boxes. If you get 2 people to sign up ("influencer" status) you get one free box. If you get 5 friends ("Insider" status) you get two free boxes. Ten friends ("VIP" status) and you get 3 free boxes. 

Item #1: U.S. Apothecary Rose Water Bubble Bath-Full Size Value: $30
This smells amazing. I have really sensitive kidneys, so I don't take baths or use bubble bath, but I fixed a bath for my boyfriend last night and used this and its awesome. The water felt and smelled nice, but it wasn't overwhelming and the bubbles weren't little kid style crazy everywhere. 

Item #2: Figs and Rouge Wild Cherry Multi-Tasking 100% Natural Lip Balm Full Size Value: $8
I love all lip balms of all kinds. I actually gave this one to Liz, but in general, I feel I can never have enough. Liz said that this is great. It left her lips feeling conditioned but not greasy or like they had a waxy overlay. She said it also didn't have too strong of a taste. 

Item #3: ACME Party Box Company Bamboo Heart Cutting Board and Cheese Knife in a Burlap Bag Value: $32
OMG OMG...I was so excited about this! I had considered buying a cheese board like three days before this box got here because the one I had from my grandmother with the old fashioned guillotine style slicer had finally died. So This was so exciting! Its really nice quality and we've probably already used it 15 times. 

Item #4: Chuao Chocolatier Ravishing Rocky Road Bar Full Size Value: $6
This was so good! I love rocky road in general. I really love marshmallows in chocolate and the almonds made it perfect. I would actually pay $6 for this candy bar, especially since its a lot larger than a standard candy bar. It took me all day to eat it. SO GOOD though.

Item #5: Baublebar Mini Arrow Pendant Necklace Value: $32
This is a really cute little necklace and I really liked the packaging too. I sell fine jewelry for a living so I am extremely picky about the necklaces I wear and I really like how dainty this one is. It also looks really nice and not cheap. I do wish I had gotten the yellow gold tone one thats in the picture in the pamphlet though. 

Item #6: Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush Full Size Value: $26
I really liked this item too. I love getting makeup that isn't eyeliner or mascara and this was perfect. I actually liked it enough to buy another color by this brand!

Item #7: Sally Beauty FingerPaints Nail Color Full Size Value: $5.50
This was considered an "extra" item. I again only use gel nail polish, but this will go in the pile of stuff to give away as its still a great product. 

I really loved the PopSugar Must Have Box. This might be my current favorite subscription box! For $39.95 I received a box with a total value of  $139.50. I would say a nearly $100 increase over what I paid for the box is definitely awesome! I'm keeping this subscription and hoping the next month is just as awesome!!! 5/5 rating
