POPSUGAR Must Have Box October 2015 Review + Coupon
POPSUGAR Must Have is a monthly lifestyle subscription box for women. Each month they send a mix of items from categories like beauty, fashion, food, fitness, home, etc.
FYI – the October box is sold out, but November boxes are still available if you sign up for a monthly subscription.
This box was sent to us early for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: POPSUGAR Must Have
The Cost: 39.95 a month
COUPON: Use coupon code MUSTHAVE5 to save $5 off your first box.
The Products: “Must Have” items for women selected by POPSUGAR editors. (Fitness, Home, Beauty, Food, and more)
Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
This month, POPSUGAR Must Have has made a donation to Right Action for Women. More on this foundation:
Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling – Retail Value $25 (On Amazon for $15)
(Also good to know – 25 lucky subscribers will receive a signed copy!) I’m not one of them, but I hope an MSA reader gets a signed copy!
I love Mindy Kaling and I was so excited when I saw this book was going to be in the October box! I had already preordered the book on Audible, but I’m happy to get a hardcover version too. Who knew I was missing awesome Mindy pictures!?
(Also on page 20 (Chapter: How to Look Spectacular: A Starlet’s Confessions) is a picture of Mindy in a face mask that I’m sure most subscription box addicts can relate to!)
And the back cover of this book is great too:
Savvy Sleepers 100% Satin Pillow Case (Standard Size) – Value $36
I think I’ve only slept on cotton pillow cases (or whatever fabric blend was on sale at Target in my college days), so this is a bit of a treat! And the promises this pillow case makes sound amazing:
Sleeping on satin is recommended by dermatologists for being smoother for skin and preventing nightly face wrinkles and creases compared to sleeping on cotton. It also prevents hair breakage and damage
Also good to know: “Savvy Sleepers are the world’s first pillow case with the secret pocket for love notes, hair ties and jasmine.” (The pocket is on the inside of the open side).
This feels super luxe on my skin, and I can’t wait to use it tonight! And I’m so glad that these cases are machine washable (tumble dry).
I think these may be a popular item in swaps – I know I want a set!
Easy, Tiger Brown Paper Liquor Bag Set – Value $8
This is a set of 4 paper wine bags:
POPSUGAR recommends using one of these for your next housewarming or Halloween party. I like this idea and they will be easier to part with than the LL Bean wine tote they sent in November 2013. (Confession – I still have it!)
Honest Sea Salt + Sugar Body Scrub – Value $17
I am a big Honest Company fan, and I love this scrub, so I’m always happy to have more. It’s all natural and the vanilla/lavender scent is amazing. (And if you like this scrub, I recommend checking out their Lavender Vanilla Candle too!)
This scrub is super moisturizing thanks to the oil and shea butter, but that can also make your shower a little slippery – so just a head’s up!
Richer Poorer Hope Slipper Sock – Value $15
These slipper socks are designed by POPSUGAR to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Richer Poorer is also supporting the work of Right Action for Women.
I love grippy slipper socks – they are one of those cozy items I can never have enough of. And I love the pink and white POPSUGAR colors too. This is the perfect subscription box item for me!
Belgian Boys All Natural Stroopwafel – Value $1.50
My husband is not in the target demographic for POPSUGAR Must Have, but he always wants to see what’s in the box each month because of the food! He’s discovered some of his favorite snacks thanks to this subscription. (G H Cretors Chicago Mix Popcorn is #1)
These Stroopwafels are great to warm up over your coffee mug, or you can just eat them out of the package. Eric absolutely loved these Stroopwafels – even without the coffee!
It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product – 2 oz Value $9
This and the gift card below are listed in the info card as Special Extras.
I’ve sampled It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product before, and it is a cult classic for a reason! Of all the hair products I’ve tried, I think this one has made my hair feel the softest. And it also helps detangle, add shine, etc. (It’s a 10 is also a partner of Right Action for Women).
Danielle Stevens Jewelry Monogram Gift Card – $40 Value
(Gift Card expires 12/31/15)
This gift card works only on the personalized section of the Danielle Stevens site. Shipping is free on all purchases, and you don’t need to enter credit card info if this gift card covers the entire cost of the purchase! I decided to go with the Single Name Only piece (no chain) for $30. (I didn’t see any info on character limit for the name, so hopefully that means my gold “mysubscriptionaddiction” name piece will be arriving soon!)
UPDATE: Since I posted this review, the Single Name Only piece I purchased with my gift card was removed from the site. There are no longer any items in the personalized section under the $40 that would make the purchase entirely free.
And this box also included a 30% off coupon code for your first Bundle from the Honest Company, and 20% off Savvy Sleepers.
Verdict: UPDATE: This box has a value of about $101 (that’s using the Amazon sale price for the book, and excluding the gift card). I think that value is good, and this POPSUGAR box feels like it is made for me – I love EVERYTHING! And I think sending out a luxe pillow case is such a nice surprise item from a subscription box!
