  1. There is a complete spoiler on There are the above plus a Butter London Wink eye pencil, Happy Socks, Nailed Kit Jack-O-Lantern nail decals, and a clear magnet frame.

    • Ha. Sorry, didnt see the video. Wow, people are already getting their boxes? I havent even gotten my shipping notice.

  2. Complete spoilers and a video link on October unboxing just posted on MUT. Great box this month.

    • Haha, this unboxing video! She said “oh my God” like 50 times 😀

  3. I totally think that’s fake! There’s no way there’s only 3 items in the box… popsugar knows we would flip!!! Also… According to PS they haven’t even started shipping yet. Maybe just someone who wants some attention or traffic to her IG.

    • I’m calling BS on this, too. She refuses to respond to questions asking if there are only 3 items and what else was included, PS denies sending any boxes yet, even advance ones to bloggers, and she has been ridiculously cryptic about how she got a box already. To me it looks like a ploy to direct traffic to her IG as well. The box might include those items, it might not. Maybe someone let it slip and she went out and bought them on her own and tried to be a first to share spoilers. Impossible to know until someone gets a legit regular monthly sub box. As an aside, I live on the face of the sun, i.e., Las Vegas, and have never received any candy ordered from anywhere in a melted mess like she showed. The whole post is just odd.

      • I’m inclined to agree. It does not reflect well on Popsugar to have a blogger posting pictures of melted product.

  4. I got suckered into buying the voucher and had a 3 month subscription that I was very disappointed with then bought the voucher and was praying October would be better. But these spoilers don’t look good at all, probably be another disappointing box.

    • I feel the same, these spoilers do nothing for me. I am going to save my voucher for Nov., hopefully they will be running better by then.

  5. K. Hall Designs is the best! Locally made, natural, family owned. I don’t use bar soap often but will make an exception for this, especially because I’m sure theirs is moisturizing.

  6. This box doesn’t wow me. So, unless another great spoiler pops up, I guess I will save my code for a box from the last deal for a November box and hope for the best.

  7. Don’t worry guys! I’m sure they’ll throw in a scarf for you.

  8. I love Dean and Deluca!! Anything pumpkin sounds good! The candle would make an excellent gift!! I’m excited to see what else will be in the box!

  9. I know people are disappointed with the spoilers, but there’s no way that those are the high ticket items. I’m sure there is something of a much higher value in the box we haven’t seen yet. We just need to be patient 🙂

    Also, count me in as a bar soap user!

  10. those dean and deluca balls are going to make my high school “felicity” fantasies come true!

    • OMG! I LOVED Felicity! I remember my need to go to Dean & Deluca every time I visited the city, because if that show. Thank you for the lovely flashback.

  11. I don’t use bar soap in the shower but I like to use bar soap in the bath. At the very least you could use it as hand soap!

  12. I don’t know a single person in my day-to-day life who uses bar soap, so that is kind of lame… But I LOVE the candle! And the maltballs sound tasty, too. Considering ordering this box even though I cancelled my PopSugar sub a while ago.

    • Lots of people use bar soap…

    • I use soap bars.

      • I like bar soap too. I love the squeaky clean feel!

    • I use bar soaps almost exclusively, even for my face & hair (hello LUSH Cosmetics!).

    • Count me in as someone who uses bar soap. Love specialty bar soaps!

    • I use bar soap. As do my best friend, my boyfriend, my father, and my brother who I hand things off too if I don’t like the scent.

    • I use bar soap all the time and only put out other soap for guests. I love l’occitaine, their soap leaves your hands and body smooth. Shower gels tend to dry out my skin, especially in the winter months! You should try it and see what happens 😉

    • I love bar soaps.

    • I agree, bar soap actually after time makes skin look dull. Dove is lying to you on all their commercials.

      • The reason most store-bought bar “soaps” like Dove and Dial make skin look dull is because they’re not actually soap. They’re pressed detergent bars (look for ingredients called sulfates; they’re the dead giveaway), and those detergents strip ALL of the oils off of your skin, leaving it dry and dull.

        Real soap is made by mixing oils and lye so that the oils saponify into salts. If you don’t see the words “sodium hydroxide” or “potassium hydroxide” on the ingredients list, it’s not real soap (or, as the soap maker saying goes, “No lye, no soap, no lie”). Real soap will not only leave the natural oils on your skin, they’re often “superfatted” with extra oils and butters to help moisturize your skin.

        If you hate bar soaps, I really recommend giving this a try. I’ve been using quality bar soap for years, and I always get compliments on how nice and smooth my skin looks and feels.

        • Molly, thanks for your comment and I totally agree! L’Occitane Shea Butter is my fav!

    • Seriously? I wouldn’t feel clean without bar soap!

    • I prefer smaller size bar soaps, but I most definitely use them. I agree with the comment someone posted about Dove. I’ve never tried L’Occtaine, but I’m going to look into them after reading these replies!

    • My husband loves bar soap and has an expensive Lush habit, I always welcome a new soap.

  13. That’s strange that the instergram user only posted three items.

    • I agree…hence my earlier question about them not even shipping yet.

      • Starting to doubt the realness. I’ve never seen that stringy packaging in a Popsugar box!

      • I emailed them and they said they dont mail out till the 15th. Not to worry and that every thing was fine. So, that is when i panic! Lol

    • She has also never posted previous Popsugar Must Have pics….

      • I think it may be fake!

      • She stated that it was her first box…

  14. I originally thought the malt balls were a box of clementine oranges… whoops!

    • Hehe, so did I! Looked at it a couple times then had to read the description to figure out what they were

      • i agree which woudl have been fine with me cuz…UGH…why do boxes insist on putting food items that i cannot eat into their box ? i really really wish you could opt out of food from boxes like this. there are probably so many groups excluded from those malt balls (gluten, dairy, etc). that will be 2 in a row for me with last month containing food items i couldnt eat. candle seems very cool though.

      • I’ve read the spoilers a couple times and each time I think it says meatballs and have to do a double take. 🙂

    • I did too! I stared at it wondering why the heck they would put those in there and then read the description 🙂

    • Haha!!! Me Too!!!! 😀

  15. I’m not sure how I feel yet. I can’t help but wonder why only 3 items were pictured. I do like the chalkboard candle, the boys will eat the maltballs which I read as meatballs, and the soap looks wonderful.

  16. I was already unimpressed and thinking of cancelling, then I went to the link for the instagram pictures and it shows that her pumpkin spice Malt balls melted down into one big lump. This looks disappointing and I’ll be cancelling next month’s box.

  17. I have received many soaps recently. Not so keen on the maltballs and candle either. I used Rue La La’s coupon to purchase the monthly box on September 20. PSMH said they would send the September box to me. Yet, I haven’t received my own September box. And a friend gifted me hers. I have no idea what happened to mine and PSMH did not respond to my last inquiry on the shipment status of that box…

    • I was just on their website checking to see if I had any shipping info yet and I did see this – For members who subscribed after September 16, 2014, the tracking information displayed below will include your September 2014 box.

      So this probably explains why you haven’t gotten your September box yet. Sounds like they are sending them together.

      • Thank you, Colleen! : )

  18. I don’t like what I’m seeing, either. Remember we were all saying they needed to “wow” us after disappointing us with bridesmaids and baby boxes? I’m not feeling wowed – just tired of the drama with them. I’m disappointed because I’ve cancelled all of my monthly sub boxes, but kept this one.

    • I was getting worried when nothing was coming out as far as spoilers for this month, and agree that nothing here is necessarily a “wow.” They seem to be trying to win customers back by playing it safe. Candles and soaps are easy crowd pleasers, and can at the very least be easily regifted. I used to work at a boutique that sold the K. Hall line, and can vouch for the brand as being particularly good imo. Still, I’m curious to see full spoilers. A candle and soap don’t really add up to much value for a $40 box.

  19. I collect bar soap – So I’m thrilled to see another soap in a box. The mug, I’m hoping will be packaged well. And the pumpkin maltballs sound great. I’m liking this box much better then the last box.

  20. Well I’m glad I’m not the only one who first read pumpkin meatballs! Lol

  21. So, no one else got a weird email (with the wrong subcription number on it) threatening to cancel their subscription if “billing errors” weren’t corrected within 5 days?

    A little odd since nothing changed. I even called my bank and was told PopSugar never tried to charge my card.

  22. Meh. The last thing on Earth that I need is more bar soap and I don’t love that there is a food product as one of the main items. HOWEVER, this isn’t the whole box and I’m sure there will be stuff in it that I love – I have faith! 😛

    • Who says it’s a main item? An instagram user is posting these spoilers, not Popsugar.

  23. Not a single one of these spoilers excites me. 🙁 The candle is okay, but nothing that I ‘must have.’ I rarely use bar soap and just got one in FFF, so I definitely don’t need another, and I may be the only person in America that is not a fan of pumpkin flavored anything… Really hoping that there are other items that make me more excited about it.

    • You and I are probably the only ones who don’t like pumpkin flavored anything! Haha… I thought I was the only one.

    • Don’t worry, my best friend doesn’t like & doesn’t eat anything pumpkin…but that is because she is allergic to cinnamon & they seem to go hand in hand. So you aren’t alone. =D

    • Count me in as another that hates pumpkin flavored sweets! I’m comforted by the fact that food is usually the low value item in a popsugar box!

  24. Yay! I have been longing for a Popsugar spoiler and I hope these are all in my box! Love anything from Dean & Deluca and that candle looks awesome. Super excited!!!!

  25. I am not thrilled with these spoilers. I did the RueLaLa deal, I THINK I can get November’s box too, right?

  26. I’m confused. How can there be spoilers if PopSugar keeps saying they won’t ship until next week? Did this person get it early for review purposes?

    • Because sometimes a few boxes are sent out early to bloggers for review or contents are leaked to a blogger.

  27. I’m so excited to finally hear something about this box!

  28. I hope these are in the box. Glad I’m getting 2 boxes this month. Yea!!!

  29. That candle is amazing!!! Oh, I hope that is in this box!

  30. I’m loving the candle too so I’m hoping it is in the box. Cant wait for more spoilers, I cant just be surprised lol

  31. I can’t stop reading meatballs instead of maltballs!

    • HAHAHA! I did the same thing. 🙂

    • Hahaha, me too! I am pleased with these spoilers!

    • I kept seeing mothballs and the orange color was throwing me off!

    • Ha! Mee too!

  32. Obsessed, obsessed, OBSESSED with the chalkboard candle. If that’s in the box, Popsugar, all is forgiven.

    • I have a few of those candles and they are so fun, smell clean burn nicely, and its a chalkboard! If all else fails re-gift it as a teacher gift 🙂 I like to use chalk pens on them instead of the chalk, its removable but doesn’t wipe off as easily as chalk and its brighter! I m excited for this box! Hooray for fun surprises in the mail!
