These spices smell amazing! I love that Pop Sugar included a cheat sheet on what to use them with. Check out instructions on how to use them here.

I love this brand and have a few necklaces and bracelets from them already. This bracelet is leather and 18K gold plated and I’m thrilled about getting this in the box!

These are high-quality letterpress cards. These will be great to have handy for sending a truly thoughtful thank you note!

Special Extras: Credit for one item at Style Mint and a $30 Coupon code for Canvas Pop
FYI – the Style Mint code is a unique code for 1 credit at Style Mint, but you still have to enter your billing information.
Verdict: In my opinion, this is another great Pop Sugar Must Have box! I love the card they include with the box to explain why they picked each item – after I read it, everything makes sense for November! Plus this box has a retail value of $135 (not including the Stylemint or Canvaspop codes). What did you think of this month’s box?

  1. Finally made the doughnuts! I used a mini muffin tin to make doughnut holes. Not going to lie, there was kind of an interesting scent to them. None the less, my family ate them ALL. Also attempted the DVD…with my three year old hanging onto my shoulders the whole time, didn’t exacty go as planned. This month (Dec.) was good, but I feel like Pop Sugar is holding out on the big ticket items(think $90 oil diffuser, $85 scarf) and saving those for the “Luxury” boxes. That is disappointing to me b/c those amazing values were certainly a large factor in my prepaying for a 3 month subscription. Many subscription box services are doing special boxes for the end of the year. Unless you want to fork out $100, that isn’t the case here. I have one month left on my sub. and I hope that Must Have will really impress mewith that WOW factor that has been missing the past few months.

  2. I absolutely cannot wait to get my first box in December. The November box is another hit!!!

  3. ANSWER TO NON-WORKING STYLEMINT.COM code:

    Email CS at Stylemint.com. They may want a screen shot of the message that comes up and says the code can’t be applied. I sent them one. If you don’t know how to take a live screen shot, Google it for your browser. I downloaded a small free program called Gadwin Print Screen which is marvelous for screen captures. If you want to download it, those words should take you right to the free version.

    This AM, I had a brand new, working code from STYLEMINT.COM.

    I advise against emailing Pop Sugar as they are totally clueless. I received a very uninformed email telling me I was entering my code wrong. Well, no, I was NOT!!! There are problems with many of the codes, and StyleMint knows it.

    I bought a mystery box with my StyleMint credit.. I guess it will be leftover T shirts from what I was reading on Facebook, but they are good to wash the car in- or with, LOL.

  4. Agree with you Ally about this box on all fronts and my stylemint code won’t work either. Don’t know what to do.

  5. This was my 1st box and I was very excited about everything in it. Bracelets I don’t wear but this one was so soft and simple. Doughnuts will be making for the holiday. Everything else I’ll find a good use for me pretty soon. I ordered both luxury boxes and can’t wait to se them next month.

  6. Bummed that I have to get a special pan for the doughnut mix! My husband gives me a hard time about the boxes, and I thought for a second that I could make him doughuts as a peace offering :P. I am glad the spices came with a recipe, I’ll be making that for sure. Already used my StyleMint credit (good for an item $30 or less), didn’t pay for shipping or taxes (in NY) so I am pretty stoked about that. I think that PopSugar set some high expectations after some of the earlier boxes though.

  7. I signed up for Popsugar after your review on Septembers box. I checked my tracking # a ridiculous amount of time waiting on this box! This was my first box so I was soooo excited to look inside but I have to say I am disappointed. Most of this box I will regift for Christmas. I won’t make the doughnuts, the thank you cards are not my style, the braclet is too small, my stylemint code won’t work and I didn’t receive the lipgloss. I was on the fence about getting the men’s luxury box but now I am going to skip it. Hopefully Decembers is better. Love all your reviews! Keep it up!

  8. This was my first Pop Sugar box and I really liked it. I don’t know how long it will take me to use most of it, but the few things I’ll use right away are worth the value of the box right off the bat. I already wore the Gorjana bracelet (like LillyAmanda said it fits me perfectly) and I’m not a bracelet person. Right away when I saw it I looked up the price because I know they’re generally a pricey brand. I couldn’t believe it retailed for $55! The lip balm smells sooo good and it feels really nice. I will be using the StyleMint coupon for sure.

  9. I LOVE my box too, Liz!! My fave things are the Gorjana bracelet, which fits like it was custom made for me, and the Yoga DVD. I’m definitely going to use the CanvasPop discount, and possibly the StyleMint (or affiliate sites) discount. Not too sure about the StyleMint things though. Not exactly up to PopSugar standards, IMO.

    I have to get a doughnut pan to make hubby some doughnuts. 🙂

  10. I, personally, was disappointed in this month’s box. This was my first box and I signed up after I saw the great goodies that a girlfriend of mine got in her September box. Even the October box had some really fun products. I just can’t help but think that everything seemed disjointed and uninspired. I do like the gorjana bracelet and didn’t realize it retailed for that much. I will likely use the gloss and am warming to the idea of the spices, but the donuts, dvd, and thank you notes just aren’t my style.
