POPSUGAR Must Have Special Edition Holiday Box Review
The POPSUGAR Must Have Special Edition Holiday Box for Her is a once-a-year limited edition box that POPSUGAR releases. The box I’m reviewing is the Women’s box, and I’ll have a review of the Men’s box up soon!
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The box is packaged perfectly to gift – each item is wrapped individually with tissue paper.
The Cost: $100 (One time purchase)
COUPON: Use coupon code JOY to get a free December POPSUGAR Must Have box when you purchase a Special Edition Holiday Box for Her or Him. (Make sure to add both a December POPSUGAR box and the holiday box to your cart before applying the coupon). Check out the GWP post for full details on this offer.
The Products: Items selected by POPSUGAR Editors that are perfect for gifting.
The box comes with a fold out card detailing each item included.
At the top of the card is a note from Lisa Sugar:
During the holidays, we want you looking and feeling your very best. Delicious treats, cozy home goods, and beauty brighteners – we’ve got everything you’ll need to celebrate in style and indulge yourself to finish an amazing 2014.
Turkish-T Diamond Throw – Value $65
This throw was designed exclusively by POPSUGAR and available only through the box. It measures 50 X 70 inches, and it is a lightweight weave.
I love both the colors and the fabric weight of this blanket – it will work equally well for winter and summer!
Loeffler Randall Envelope Clutch – Value $70
This python-embossed leather clutch is so gorgeous and SO well-made. Considering it is made out of leather, I’m actually surprised it doesn’t retail for more. (It measures 5.5 X 8.5 inches).
It has a dotted fabric lining, and comes with tags, so if you’re planning on gifting it – you’re good to go!
(Normally I would gift a clutch since I’m not a clutch person, but I love this one so much I’m going to keep it!)
Illume Gilded Amberleaf Metallic Knob Tin Candle – Value $23.50
This candle is bigger than I expected it would be (4.5 inch diameter). The scent is described as “cedarwood and golden amber infused with mandarin, vetiver, vanilla and tobacco.” I can’t decide exactly what the scent reminds me of, but I like it.
It also came packaged in this box.
Habit Cosmetics Nail Polish in 21 Nefertiti – Value $18
I don’t get excited about nail polish easily thanks to all the polish I get in subscription boxes, but I love this color. It’s a grey brown creme with gold micro-glitter. (Plus I love the bottle design).
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment (.5 oz) Value $22
This is one of those exfoliating products that gets rave reviews, and I think it’s a great addition to the box. I’ve tried it before and loved it, so I’m happy to have more.
Another cult-classic beauty item! I feel like the RMS Beauty Luminzer is one of the most popular organic makeup items ever. I use mine almost everyday, and I’m happy to have a spare.
If you are new to this product, it gives a really pearlescent finish, and a little goes a long way.
Droga Chocolates Money on Honey – Value $7.95
My husband was very happy to help me with reviews today by tasting chocolate – these apparently are amazing!
Verdict: This box has a value of a little over $250. I think the value is great, but more importantly, I really feel like every single item was so well-curated for this box. Nothing feels random or filler – and I will use everything. This may be my favorite Special Edition box from POPSUGAR yet, in part because all the beauty items are perfect for me. Also I just love that they had a creamy white and metallic color palette for this box – it makes it feel so much more cohesive.
Now that I have it in my hands, I think I will take advantage of the JOY coupon offer, and get another box for my mom as her Christmas gift. What do you think of the POPSUGAR Must Have Special Edition Holiday Box for Her?
