Pop Sugar Must Have – December 2012 Review – Monthly Women’s Subscription Boxes
December’s Pop Sugar Must Have box was an interesting one for me – I love all the items, but the value wasn’t as high as I expected.
The Box: Pop Sugar Must Have
The Cost: $35 a month
COUPON CODE: Use code REFERFRIENDS to save $5 off your first box
The Products: Must have products in home, food, beauty, fitness, etc.
Bodum Bistro Double Walled Glass Mugs – Value $30
I love these mugs. My favorite part? They are dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe!
Tea Forte Sampler – Value $15
Typically when I get tea in a subscription box, it’s a few loose bags, so I love that this was a boxed set. I may end up using this as a gift – the packaging is so nice, and the teas smell great!
Bogdon’s Peppermint Poles – Value $3
Yum! These are already out on my coffee table!
Jaboneria Marianella Soap – Value $14
This soap smells divine, and at the price point is probably something I wouldn’t buy myself, but I’m thrilled it was in the box.
Pinch Provisions Minimergency Kit – Value $15
This little kit is impressive! I couldn’t believe everything they fit in the case. I immediately put it in my purse.
GoSwype – Value $1.99
Love this product! It completely cleaned my phone of any streaks, and knowing it also removed germs and bacteria made me feel better about having it so close to my face when on a call!
Rent the Runway Coupon Code – $30
I think Rent the Runway is a really cool site, and after checking out their amazing dresses, I totally plan on using the service someday. My issue with this coupon though, is that Pop Sugar states it is a $30 Gift Card, but it is actually just a $30 off coupon code that can only be used on rentals. (Rental accessories start at $10, but shipping and insurance aren’t covered by the coupon). Because this is a coupon and not a true Gift Card, to me the $30 value shouldn’t go toward the box total value.
Verdict: I will definitely use everything in the December Pop Sugar Must Have box, so I’m very pleased with the items! The value of the box without the coupon code is only $79 though, so previous boxes have definitely had more items and higher value. No complaints here though – now I just want my Luxury Edition box! What did you think of this month’s box?
