  1. Popsugar wouldn’t cancel my order on this. 🙁 I have never in my life complained about a PS box until now.

    I feel like I really just wasted so much money for nothing.. it almost physically hurts to think of that 250.00 dissolving into a puddle of overpriced candle wax.

    • I remember when people were upset about the new beauty test tube, when they got their box they just wrote “return to sender” on it and didn’t open it and they got refunded. Not sure what the procedure is with that but it’s something to look into!

      • That definitely works with anything shipped completely by the US Postal Service (remember the days of Columbia House and reply cards? — I actually got kicked out for returning too many packages unopened, like every month for a year). I don’t think it would work with hybrid shipping methods, though please correct me if you’ve tried that. (I also don’t know how PS ships.)

  2. I think Popsugar needs a new curator.

    • I agree 100%.

      • ^^^ completely agree. $26 cocoa? AN $88 CANDLE?! Who exactly is the demographic for this stuff?

        • It’s targeted to the people who pay $250 for a box of items that they don’t need in hopes that it will be filled with stuff they “must have”. It’s Neiman Marcus – not Target.

  3. I hate to pile on the negativity, but I came THIS close to ordering this based on reviews of the last box and my trust in NM. Thank goodness I restrained myself… We all have puh-lenty of mascaras and nude-ish lip glosses and face creams (if you even subscribe to one beauty box), and I have at least 5 candles waiting to burn. I do like the clutch quite a bit, but have no doubt I can find one at a much lower price. If this had been offered at a lower price point, I think most folks would be ok. But for $250, it’s just kind of a bummer. What is going on with PS?

    • Just wanted to comment and say that there is a relatively similar small cross body available at gap 🙂 It is SO cute I think I will be returning tomorrow to purchase it since it will be 30% off!! So there’s a solution to wanting the clutch!!

  4. So relieved I PS to cancel my box. This seems like a glorified monthly box, but nearly as glorified for the $250 price tag. Ladies that love this, enjoy. Rest of us, be glad we will have extra $ for holiday presents.

    • How did you get them to refund you?

    • Yeah, how did you get them to cancel? I tried after seeing spoilers and they said it’s against policy and gave me a bunch of BS about how I would love it.

  5. So happy I didn’t have the money to order this! Like someone else said – if it was a $100 box it would be incredible. But for $250? There needs to be either more things or a few high price items like the throw/dishes from last year. No one in their right mind pays $88 for a candle.

  6. So disappointed:(, this is my first limited edition box and have only been a subscriber since sept. I purchased this very pricy box based on last years box of some really great items and varity. As others have states this box seems to be tad better then there month to month quality. This is so disappointing. I wish I could cancel my order. I guess I was expecting more iteresting items and this box is so generic. Never mind that I paid a high ticket price to get macara again.. Just was hoping for some home items like last box. Should have waited but since I am new to this game I took the the hype of this selling out to heart. Never again.

    • I feel exactly the same way. New subscriber and bought this box because I liked what I saw they did last year. So lame…

  7. I actually think this box has a lot of lovely luxurious items in it! It is way out of my price range but is perfect for Neiman Marcus and would make some great gifts if you have loved ones that appreciate these kinds of items. I think the only thing missing would be a nice scarf or pair of gloves.

  8. This is awful! I completely understand the idea of luxury and paying more for a nicer item. However, I expect these item to be unique in design and something that makes me stop and go “wow! That’s nice! No wonder it costs $100!” And to me, a red picture frame does NOT qualify.
    I feel like a lot of these things will end up in the Clearance Section. I didn’t buy this box because the PS $100 boxes have been dissapointing so I couldn’t take a chance on $250….but if I had spent the money I would be trying to get a refund!!

  9. Ugh, I am disappointed. I splurged on this because of the review of the last box. I really wish I had waited for spoilers $250 wasted. There’s nothing in this box that is special or Luxourious. Like others have said these are just more expensive items that we’ve already recieved in the monthly box. Between this box and the two Eva boxes I got I wasted too much money to count… Ugh 🙁 the Eva boxes luckly I can gift to my sis and mom who will appreciate high end hair spray. This box I’m hoping I will love once it’s in hand. But the clutch will be unused for a long time since I’m using diaper bags. I wanted that throw from the last box. If anyone has one and wants to trade please hit me up! For the price of this box I could have ordered 5 MSA boxes. I’m more happier than ever that I signed up to recieve 3 MSA02 boxes. Here’s hoping Ninas box has some redemption otherwise my box splurges will be very limited in the future

    • remember Quarterly boxes can be returned.

      • You can return a quarterly box if you dont like it???

      • Yes, I recently found out you can return these boxes. I was able to use codes so didn’t pay full price. I personally have no real use for most of the items but my mom and sis will so they are being added to their CMAS gifts! I just wish it had been a win for me. I cancelled EVA’s box and after this POPsugar fail I won’t be buying a LE box again, unless I see full spoilers and love the items.. Time for me to stop the box madness and only keep the boxes who deliver.

        • I returned a couple Quarterly boxes without any problems.

  10. Soooo glad I didn’t buy this, after having PopSugar for a few months and being more disappointed then anything I have yet to buy a limited edition box. They always seem to disappoint this year, last year’s looked way better. This one seems to be missing a big ticket item, I just can’t get over a $100 picture frame, $88 candle or $220 clutch, I can’t get over the clutch.

    • I agree 100%. I realize I can buy so much else and so many other things I actually want for that 250!

    • Agreed!!!! Keep in mind though that these are Neiman Marcus items and they are ALWAYS overpriced. Ridiculous! I don’t shop there for that reason. I can go to Target and get the same thing for a fraction of the price and usually the same quality. Seriously, $220 for that clutch! It’s hideous!

  11. Is my Subscription Box Love Affair/Addiction starting to go cold? It seems like I’ve been more disappointed than not these last couple of months, especially with the PopSugar-y offerings. I WANT to LOVE THE Boxes and GIVE THEM CHANCE AFTER CHANCE but I just don’t know if it’s worth it anymore– just SO disappointed…

  12. I am actually excited about everything in the box. I love luxury products and getting them at a steep discount is even better. The only item I was not that wowed over is the moisturizer for blemished skin but in reading the ingredients at least there is not any harsh acne medication in it but rather just a nice moisturizer for oily skin. I just started reading these forums but seems like most people only complain about the boxes. Neiman Marcus is know for higher priced items so what exactly were people expecting, if they put in a $25 candle people would complain they were putting cheap stuff in the box about that and now everyone is complaining about an $85 candle.

    • Compared to last year’s edition, this one isn’t as product diverse or value realistic. At least folks had heard of Jonathon Adler. One of the main complaints is this box is largely a repeat of recent monthly boxes in terms of item categories; they just included higher priced versions of the same (candle, frame, clutch, gloss). It therefore feels unimaginative and repetitive. Long time customers develop expectations based on past offerings, as well as personal experience with various box sponsors. This box just didn’t stack up well against past versions for many customers. The only way subs improve is by listening to customer feedback. To each their own but everyone’s opinion, whether positive or negative, is valid and helpful in the big picture for all concerned. Last year’s box was overwhelmingly well received, so I don’t think it’s a situation of customers complaining regardless what PS includes. People aren’t happy seeing a overvalued version of the same boxes they got for $40 or less throughout the year. If it was billed as a “best of” box, then there wouldn’t be a valid reason to complain. But it wasn’t.

      • Not to say that Missoni isn’t well known, but the design house isn’t exactly renowned for their candles. And Chantecaille products have made the beauty sub box rounds multiple times over this year, so seeing 2 products here from them again is a let down as well, even though it’s a known, higher end brand.

    • I agree with you! I personally would never buy an $85 candle, but that is exactly the kind of items I expect in a box like this. I think it’s a great box (albeit out of my price range). I won’t be buying it but if I had, I think I’d be happy.

    • I agree. I feel like some subscribers are starting to lose sight of exactly what a subscription box entails: Spoilers on the internet aside, I feel like they’re meant to be SURPRISE boxes. You’re meant to get items you might not have tried on your own. Yes, you could have bought a bunch of stuff for $250 or $100 or whatever, and for that money you can buy exactly what you wanted instead of taking the risk on getting something you won’t like, but that’s kind of the point. I find it hard to get all bent out of shape if I don’t like something in a sub. box. since I am agreeing to take that risk by subscribing. My random two cents!

    • I would love to trade you! I received the regular Lancer cream, not specifically the blemish control, and that is really the one that I need.

  13. Last year’s box was soooo much better. $88 for a candle? GET OUT!! That candle better be the size of a watermelon or have the unique ability to duplicate itself at least twice over. The “storage box” seems clumsy and very “crafts store” to me. Also, mascara and lipgloss? Seriously? I’m assuming most of the women who ordered this box subscribed to other boxes, which means they are up to their ears in mascara and lipgloss! Sure, these are high-end, but I think most would probably prefer a palette or something comparable to last year’s amazing kaleidoscope from Le Metier de Beaute. Even an amazing serum from ReVive or Le Mer (and yes, I realize that’s a stretch price-wise but you get what I’m driving at!). The clutch, cream, and picture frame would have been the big winners for me. Also, $26 for a tiny tin of hot chocolate? Come on -_- For those that caved, the box is definitely filled with luxurious items and any of them would make a nice Christmas gift. IMO it just doesn’t quite measure up to last year’s box.

    • I was thinking the exact same thing about lip gloss and mascara, it is an insult to the subscription box lovers who paid $250 for this! Glad I didn’t buy, I can’t justify that price for anything PS. The monthly subscription is all I trust them with, haha!

  14. All I know is if any versions/similar items are in the regular November/December boxes — I’m done with Must Have.

    So no candles, decorative boxes, mascara, lipgloss, or frames — please and thank you.

  15. $100 for a picture frame?!
    That’s all I gotta say.

  16. I am so happy I waited to see the full spoilers! I just saved myself $250. There is nothing here I can’t live without.

  17. So glad I didn’t buy this box. All of the subscription boxes (with the exception of a few) are starting to bore me. Nothing is unique anymore and I think the craze will be dying down soon. There’s only so much make up or candles, etc. that one needs.

  18. REALLY glad I listened to my inner PS-Hating voice and not my NM-coveting voice. I find this box ridiculously over-valued, and carelessly curated. There’s nothing exciting in it except that cool glass storage box.

    As many have said, there are way better things to spend $250 on. Including the Net-a-Porter box (which arrived today even though I only ordered yesterday) – which is AWESOME!

  19. Thank heaven for the Clare V. clutch and Missoni candle, otherwise I would be furious. There is no picture frame worth $100. I don’t care who makes it. Skin care is such a specific item as it is, then to put in the “blemish control” formulation? It’s useless to me. And the last things I need are yet another invisible pale pink gloss and mascara that may or may not work for me. UGH. I feel like a sucker.

    • I would love to trade you moisturizers! I need the blemish control, but received The Method: Nourish.

  20. I am trying to be happy with this box but I’m so disappointed. My boyfriend bought this for me because he knew I was eyeing it (and he knows how I love my boxes), so he thought he’d treat me. I don’t even want to yell him what’s in it because it seems so minimal based on the price tag. Sigh 🙁

    • Email them and ask for a refund!

      • I already emailed for a refund and was told no and that it clearly states that on the policy. Then I was treated to a crap-load of marketing text saying how much I’ll love it.

        I’m so upset. The box from last year was so lovely, this one is horrible. I won’t be fooled again.

      • I also received that e-mail. I responded with one of my own about the careless curation and overpriced repeats from past boxes. Shockingly, I’m still waiting for a response on that one.

        • If you’re really unsatisfied, I would keep pushing their CS. Don’t take their first or even second response. Always keep it professional, but be persistent! I’ve often t

          • they told me no. i guess o well 🙁 never purchasing another LE box ever AGAIN. ive been suckered too many times now. besides they never sell out before full spoilers anymore, so ill just wait to pull the trigger if one ends up being amazing. im disappointed with the spoiler for the regular monthly box too. gahhh.

  21. I have been waiting for full spoilers before deciding whether I’d purchase this box. After seeing the contents, I will be saving my money. Was hoping for jewelry and more home items. For those that bought the box…once you finish burning the candle, try popping it in the freezer for a bit and once the wax on the bottom of the candle is frozen, pop it out with a spoon. This way you can reuse the beautiful container! And for those that didn’t buy the box but like some of the items, I just bought last year’s chevron throw on sale for $73, along with two Jonathan Adler zebra plates in gold & silver, which are more neutral colors than what was included in last year’s box. Perhaps some of the items in this year’s box will go on sale at a later point? 🙂

    • Where did you find the chevron throw and the zebra plates? I just checked the Neiman marcus website and the throw is $97 I’d love to get it for 79. If you can tell me where you bought them from id be grateful! Thx 🙂

      • I got them from Neiman Marcus. They had a 25% off home sale last week so I think that’s why the throw was only $73. I wouldn’t be surprised if they run another sale soon with the holidays coming up so it might be worth while to sign up for their emails so you’ll know when the next sale runs. I went with the navy throw and love it! I paid full price for the zebra plates (I think they were $32 each) – really happy with the purchase. Also, if you have an AMEX card, you can sign up for Shoprunner and get complimentary 2-day shipping.

        • Hi Ariana! Thanks for getting back to me. I will def sign up for their news letter. Thank you again for all your tips 🙂 is the throw big/long and how thick is it? I think it might be a “must have” purchase for me. If only the items they chose for this box had that same “must have” feel. Popsugar might want to think about changing their name because lately their boxes don’t capture that “must have” vibe.

          • No problem at all. The throw is definitely well made. It’s not super thick, but it’s not a light throw either. It’s also not very long…I’m about 5’4 and I can cover myself up with it, but it’s not a full size blanket that you would use on your bed. I would never pay the $190 sticker price, but feel it was well worth $75! I believe the only colors they have left are blue, green and navy.
            Good luck!

      • I got my zebra plate from Birchbox – points, points, points!

        • Hi, thanks for letting me know. I didn’t know BB even had that item. I’ll have to take a look. Thanks again :)!

  22. I’m so disappointed for $250. Like others said, for $100 I’d be THRILLED. This is what SHOULD be in the $100 boxes. For $250…I’m severely let down. It’s more overpriced versions of items from every box. The glass box is the only thing I’m even remotely interested in.

    I was so excited after seeing the clutch. Now I really, really wish I had waited. Sigh.

  23. Thank you to everyone who purchased the box! We only designed the glass storage box but appreciate the overall feedback & comments.

    • In the next popsugar box they are sending out coupons for free a “sucker” tattoo for your forehead

      I can’t believe I fell for popsugar again. I wisely had cancelled my subscription and got lured in again by the neiman marcus box- last year I didn’t get it and it was so fabulous I thought for sure I would love this one too. As soon as the spoiler came out ( basically same bag as the really poorly made one in the resort ” luxury box” last year )I emailed and tried to cancel- of course they wouldn’t cancel- they know it is a bunch of clearance junk they don’t want to get stuck with- this box is only worth $250 to someone who is completely off their rocker or high. I would be embarrassed to re gift any of this junk even with the price tag on it- then my friends would know how big an idiot I am for buying this .

      Neiman Marcus. Don’t work with popsugar ever again, they are making you look REALLY bad, and fire the doodoo bird who “curated” this box- they have no sense of the fun style that is neiman marcus

    • Will,
      I truly like the storage box but you all probably should review the entire contents of a popsugar box before working with them again… Everyone on fb is complaining to them and this box will go down with such a bad rep… Many of us are contacting our cc companies to try and cancel bc it feels like a fraud. Also just cancelled monthly sub with them…

  24. To echo what a couple of others have said, it’s not the fact that I find the box overvalued that really bothers me (that sort of goes along with the NM part of it to me – I like NM but $88 candles and $100 picture frames are cuckoo IMO). It’s that the item selection is so rote. It’s like they ran to one section of the store and went, candle, picture frame, mascara, lip gloss, clutch, random overpriced foodie item, high end beauty cream – check!! All done, guys!

  25. I am so, so glad I didn’t purchase this box. $250 is a lot of money for me and I would never spend $88 on a candle or buy a $100 picture frame. Overvalued is right. I would just be sick if I had bought this and this is what I got. Agree that last years was better, too bad they didn’t offer it again!!

  26. I’m in the minority and I think they did a great job curating. I love every single item. It’s a good deal for some of Neimans home items and totally worth it. I recently purchased candle from them for $78 and it would have been nice to get it in a box like this. The only miss for me is the mascara and lipgloss, but only because I already have them at home though it will be nice to have doubles.

  27. I’m glad there are people that do like the box. I’m not one of them. I liked the reviews on the last year’s box. It was different than the typical sub box with items not commonly found in boxes. This seems generic. Did they forget that they put a candle and a frame in the October box? I do like the storage box. I’ve learned much about beauty products from this blog. I have no idea that mascara can cost $58.00. The box will make nice gifts etc., but I am glad I did not purchase it. I also don’t think I will purchase the holiday box since PopSugar and I are not on the same wavelength when it comes to LE boxes.

    I do hope everyone enjoys their boxes. I love reading about how the one mom is going to gift her daughter the cosmetics.

    • I forgot to add that if you are able to go to MUT (makeup talk forum) check out the spoiler picture. The clutch looks beautiful and the candle does too. The candle will look gorgeous in the right setting.

  28. Hmm. I think the items are nice enough, but nothing to-die-for and seems overvalued. I’m really glad I skipped this one. For that kind of mine (less, actually) I can get Birchbox Vanity Affair & Homespun LE boxes, the MSA winter box (can’t wait) and start a Little Lace Box subscription, which I have been wanting to try.

    • ** for that kind of MONEY ^^
      Sigh. I always do my best proof reading after I hit send…

      • I do too LOL.

      • Haha – me too! 😉

  29. I was wavering on getting this since last years NM box was so great (and I didn’t get it). I’m REALLY glad I didn’t. As someone else said, I was hoping for something different in this box, not just a higher priced version of the usual PS monthly boxes. So glad I didn’t hit the purchase button.

  30. This one didn’t interest me very much… I got Nina Garcia instead so crossing my fingers for that one!

  31. I am just kind of “meh” about this one. $88 for a candle kind of floors me. What if we don’t even like the scent? I agree with everyone that says these items are all repeats of boxes we get all year – candles, mascara, frames (albeit all nicer products I’m sure).

    I, too, wish PS & NM would have put stuff we don’t see every day like the throw from last year. I would have liked some sort of full sized luxurious Shampoo and Conditioner in here. We don’t see those very often in other boxes (usually they send a sample size of one or the other). Or maybe a nice set of slippers for winter, or just different items we don’t see in every other box all year long. With Neiman Marcus in the mix, you would think there’d be lots more variety to choose for the box. But, then again I may like it more when I get it. We’ll see.

    I also think that from here on out, I will wait for complete spoilers before I purchase another PS Special Edition box. I’ve spent way too much money gambling on Popsugar’s SE boxes only to be disappointed way too many times. You know fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me and all that jazz. I’m on fool me about 4 times now, so I guess I’m quite the idiot. 🙂 LOL!

    • Brandy this cracks me up. I said to myself “well, you’re the dope who got suckered by PS for the FOURTH time.” but seriously, I didn’t even complian about the 3 bad LE boxes but 250.00 is too much to overlook. I was going to get a gift Nina G box and some others but got this instead. Kicking myself Bc now I will.have a bunch of stuff I can’t seriously give away. “Here’s your $100.00 picture frame. Enjoy!” Never again, PS. Never again.

      • You crack me up Sheila…….here’s your $100 picture frame. Enjoy! lol lol

        Here’s your candle enjoy! Remember you are burning $88 every time you light it!

        I keep going back to the old PS boxes and remember the box with the ring holder (mine was an elephant). Things like that made PS’s boxes unique and fun. Everything here is so safe and ordinary. Last year’s box was so much better, not that I purchased it or this one either thank God.

  32. Love it!! Wish i could see a simple piece of jewelry in every box, but i still love it.

  33. I am glad that I waited to buy the box. I had it in my cart and was ready to check out, when I got cold feet and thought I would wait. While the items are nice, I do feel that they are extremely over valued. $88 candle? $100 picture frame? and the blue clutch reminds me of the rdMcD clutch that I still have. I would have thought a piece of jewelry or something nicer for holiday entertaining or the home would have been better choices considering many of these items are similar to ones we have received in recent boxes.

    • Yes, why didn’t they do a nice jewelry. I was expecting something like that. Maybe a pretty bracelet or something… Bummer!

  34. I actually was happy with the curation of this box and am totally happy with it all! I love the fact they put hot chocolate in the box instead of the awful sickly sweet snack mixture that was in last years box. The items are great and if I don’t choose to use myself, make awesome gifts for family and the few friends I give to. I know my daughter can’t afford really nice makeup so the mascara and gloss will be a real treat in her stocking this year! I think the candle and frame together would make an awesome gift to a family member who would be very grateful to get them. The little box MINE!!!!!! I just love little boxes to put my jewelry and keepsakes in. They are just up my alley! Over all I am so happy about this box and happy and grateful to get it!

    • I agree … when I first saw spoilers posted I almost didn’t want to look but overall I think this looks amazing. The only item I’m missing is jewelry but the box is a jewel in itself. I’m very pleased. I get a little luxury and to experienced some high end products. I’m actually ecstatically grateful that every item meshes with my personal style except perhaps the design on the candle. (But since it’s a candle I’ll end up burning it down eventually.) Last year’s NM (which I did not buy) had me worried because the plates, throw, and zebra dish do not jive at all with my decor. Buying this box was a risk on my part and seeing this spoiler tells me it paid off!

  35. SO glad I didn’t get this one.

    • Sam here! i wasted my time just considering buying it lol.

  36. Not liking these spoilers…if you purchased from Ps when it first came out, can you cancel before it ships?

    • I saw on Makeup Talk that someone tried to cancel well before the box ships and PS ignored their email and then processed the box.

  37. I have to echo what others are saying, this box is a huge letdown. The clutch looks well constructed, but the colors are very limiting. I think it would have been smarter to include a neutral colored wallet or perhaps a cross body bag.
    Plus one candle valued at $88? Ridiculous. And the picture frame, while I’m sure is nice, seems to be similar to one you can find at Restoration Hardware for 1/3 the price.
    It’s not terrible, but it’s not great either. I’d be more satisfied if the price point was $100 or even $150. I have a feeling that from now on, people are going to stop buying these $100+ boxes until they see full spoilers.

  38. I am pleased with the variety of items in this box! I will enjoy everything.

  39. REALLY glad I waited to buy this! Not really interested at all. Last year’s box was awesome, this one is a bit ‘blah’. I think I will save the money and get a few months of ‘Little Lace Box’. It’s great!

  40. I really liked last years. I wish I had bought it. I liked all the home items. The plates and the throw. Even the little necklace. I will say that I know NM has a hand in what goes in here… So if there is blame for this box it should be 50/50… It just seems a little silly to me that they didn’t seem to look at what was in recent boxes. The candle, the picture frame, and the clutch. I loved the Oct box. But this one is a miss for me. It’s a good box. But for me I want more home/usable items. I didn’t know Mascara could cost so much!!!! I would have liked only one beauty item in the box… but that is just me. That being said… if they do a LE, I’m going to give it a go! 🙂 why not.

  41. I hate to be a downer but this box is horrible. I am furious with myself for buying it and believing in NM and giving PS one last chance. An $88.00 candle and. $100. 00 picture frame? This is a serious letdown after last year’s box. Sorry to anyone who likes this box, don’t mean to rain on your parade

  42. The $100 picture frame is absolutely ridiculous, whole box feels wildly over-valued. I’d be crying real tears if I’d purchased this right now. I can’t believe they couldn’t do better than this.

  43. Waow! Thank god I decided to wait on this spoiler. This is not the box I was hoping for it to be.

    Quite disappointed…but ah, savedd 250$ 😉

  44. I think I’d want to burn that candle only when company came over lol…

  45. Wow, what a disappointment. I, too, feel I wasted A LOT of money. Oh well, it is always a risk with these boxes – but last year’s was great, so it seemed a safer bet than if it was the first one.

  46. I really like everything in the box. I will use every item. I can’t wait for it to come.

  47. An $88 candle? I’m having trouble burning up that teeny tiny candle we got from Escape Monthly last month. I have trouble spending $100 in the NM store. Everything seems so overpriced and undervalued.

    • I go through candles quickly. But not $88 candles! I suppose having a designer name attached to it is what makes the price so high. But I can’t get over the fact that it’s some wax, a wick, and a glass jar for $88. No thanks.

  48. I said this in the other post too but I hope I like it better when I get it. I guess I am the most disappointed that all the items are repeats in some sense, they have all been in very recent past boxes (obviously cheaper variations but the same sort of item). Of all products sold in NM I would be sure they could find some new items that we don’t receive in every other box. I liked last year because we don’t normally see dishware, throws, etc in subscriptions so it was really cool to receive them. We get candles, makeup, face lotion, and frames often enough from PS that it doesn’t feel special in this box.

    • I think this is the best point so far. The price gives the impression that it will be DIFFERENT than what subscription boxes usually have, not more expensive versions. What about sheets? A kitchen utensil? A lamp? Bigger items would make the bigger price tag well deserved.

  49. Wow I’m disappointed for me it was a waste of money last years box was way better totally regretting this purchase

  50. I feel even more confident with my non purchase of this. I’m so happy that I spent my monies on (so far) the special edition birchbox holiday boxes. I am hoping and looking forward to more special edition holiday editions.
