  1. I just received my February box and am super disappointed. I am missing the Tilo Scarf (RV $125) – of course the most expensive item promised in the box. I’ve contacted CS so we’ll see if they send a replacement. I’m a little concerned based on the experience others have had with trying to get PS to replace missing items. Any advice?

    • The shipping weight on my PS box was 2.2 lbs. If you received the scarf, what was the shipping weight on your box. I have a bad feeling about them following through on this because the item is light. For those of you who have had CS promise to replace items did they follow through or was it just a waste of time?

      • My recieved a broken candle in the November box. On Tuesday they said they sent out my replacement with 2 additional items.
        I guess if the 2 items are good items then the 2 months waiting will be worth it.

  2. VS uses mineral oil as their main moisturizing ingredient in their lotions. Not a fan of slathering petroleum byproduct on my skin. For the same price companies like 100% pure use nothing but plant based ingredients. PSMH, please keep the natural products coming in future boxes.

  3. Not sure why my comment was deleted, so I’ll just be blunt this time: If you continue to buy from PopSugar, then complain about them, then buy from them again, you get what you deserve. I’m sure they have a good laugh at your expense all the way to the bank. It’s hilarious and sad.

  4. Got my box today and I have to say, best box ever! You ladies won’t be dissapoint. It is amazing and the curation put into it was great. I love love love it! πŸ™‚

  5. Umm… this month’s box is AMAZING!! It’s worth almost $300 and the items are AMAZING!! Gah, cannot wait to get my hands on it!!

    • Have you seen full spoilers??

      • YES!! This girl on Facebook wrote on their wall and received hers already! I asked her to message it to me, you guys- it’s awe-some!!! πŸ™‚

        • You should share the photos!

      • Makeup Talk has a screen print of the full box.

    • I’m not sure where my last comment went, but it’s in the discussion board as well!! πŸ™‚

  6. I normally love the spoiler but I find that the VS fragrances smell artificial. I am the odd person–I tend not to like the Feb boxes–too many heart-shaped items!

  7. I’m happy that I get real coupon like cash to purchase what I want rather than get something that will be the wrong style color or size. And if anyone can’t use it it will be a great gift!!! Skin products are always needed in winter. I love this box all ready!!!

  8. I just got this lotion last month and I love it! I actually got the whole set – body oil, body wash, scrub… All very good! I may swap this one or give as a gift since I have basically a full bottle. But I’m always happy to have $20 to out towards VS shopping!
    So far so good with the spoilers this month for me!

  9. Oh this looks exciting, Love PopSugar. Their customer service is excellent and they always reply back from my e-mails. Just remember they get hundreds of e-mails and will get back to you. Even if you have to send a follow-up e-mail. They will take care of your situation. Looking forward to February box ??

    • 100% agree. I know this might sound crazy based on all of the comments about Popsugar’s customer service lately, but I have found their CS to be outstanding. I’m a new-ish subscriber, and even in my limited time with them, they have been so kind and generous. On that note, I thought it might be nice to take a moment and share an experience I just had with them. I was one of the ones who got “burned” by the whole Target box ordeal–but when they refunded my money (already back in my account!) and said they were shipping a free Today show box (which Fedex shows will be arriving this week!), I sent an email thanking them and telling them how I thought sending a free limited edition box was so above-and-beyond for what was really just an unfortunate and totally-forgivable tech glitch. Today I got a gift from them in the mail, along with a hand-written note thanking me for my email–they had passed it around to the entire team and said it brightened their spirits! I couldn’t believe my little email of gratitude meant so much to them. I think the last few months have been really tough on them, and I’m glad to be reminded that while companies and people all have flaws, kindness wins the day, every time! πŸ™‚ I work in a job where people can be very critical, and though I try to be strong and let comments roll past, sometimes it completely knocks me to the ground. So with things like subscription boxes, I try to remember that it’s just stuff. It’s just one Target box; there will be others–and clearly I was meant to use that money for something else! πŸ™‚ But more importantly, these are people, real human beings, with feelings. Cut them, they bleed, just like me. I try to think what they must be dealing with, with so many broken items (the item I had to get resent had been packaged securely in bubble wrap–I mean, what else could they have done? The fact is, things break, it happens), people not a fan of the contents of this or that box, people upset over the slow response/shipping time, and then the Target thing. My guess is they’re just trying to get their heads above water right now, and like you said, Bella, it takes time to sift through hundreds of emails. I feel like those poor customer service reps are the ones who deserve the bubble bath I’m getting in the Today Show box–not me! πŸ™‚

      • Sorry I wrote a whole essay. πŸ˜‰

        • I loved it! Wish there were more people like you in this world.

        • Excellent essay though! I like happy endings.

      • @Sarah, I love your post, and thanks for sharing with us.

      • And I, 100% agree with you! Being kind can go further than people think!

      • Love this, thank you for sharing! I’ve never had an issue with customer service, and I’ve always gotten a speedy reply. granted I’ve never had an issue with items arriving broken either (even the items most people had issues with). While I understand people frustration I’ve always felt bad about what a bad rep the CS gets because I’m sure there’s only so much they can do at there level, especially when everyone is writing in all at once to report damaged items. I love PSMH and their boxes, I’ve skipped the past two months and opted for the LE boxes instead (which I’ve enjoyed much more). Curation is usually good but I’ve become pickier on what I chose to purchase. I’ve chosen to purchase on a month to month basis after spoilers. (although I just couldn’t resist buying February early since it was my favorite month last year!!!)

        Bottom line- I love PSMH and I feel bad for the bad rep they’ve gotten.

      • In retrospect, I wish I would’ve been one of those people who got cancelled and got a free Today box! I got my boxes, didn’t like them, sold on ebay, and after all fees, I’m making like $20. Totally not worth all the trouble.

        • I am one of those people. I just got my refund 3-4 days ago. And didn’t get Today show+ Popsugar box yet, don’t think they will ever ship it.

      • This is so awesome! I’m so glad you shared. And a great reminder to all that when we receive great customer service and recognize it, it clearly means a lot to people. I’ve had nothing but outstanding customer service from them and I have been subscribing for over a year and a half.

      • Sorry, but it’s easy to be nice when you’ve had good customer service. Of course they paraded your email around, it’s probably one of the only nice ones they’ve received for a while.

        When my Target box was delivered to the wrong address, Popsugar basically told me there was nothing they could do (no refund and no replacement box) because the tracking had showed the box as delivered.

        They only way I got my box was because the nice neighbor who USPS incorrectly delivered my box to was kind enough to walk a few blocks and hand deliver my box to me.

        Popsugar definitely didn’t get a sugar-coated email from me, and unfortunately too many subscribers have seen this unacceptable Customer Service from Popsugar.

  10. So excited for this!

  11. I love it! I totally need a new bra and having $20 to put towards that sounds amazing.

  12. I’m getting worried because I haven’t recieved a tracking # yet. I’m hoping it’s not like January because I still haven’t gotten my January box.

  13. I am actually excited about this. With a teenage daughter in the house, anything VS related will be put to good use. I checked out the PopSugar Facebook page and it says the Reward Card is just like a $20 gift card and it looks like the lotion is full size. So that is worth the price of the box just for that. Can’t wait to see what else is included this month! Mine shipped already, so hopefully I will have it by next week! πŸ™‚

  14. FYI y’all, someone asked on Facebook whether it’s a discount card or a gift card-style reward, and PSMH replied that it’s a gift card style, so no minimum purchase required.

    • Awesome thanks !!

  15. Body lotion. Ho hum. Though I understand the “love” tie-in, it’s been a really long time since I’ve considered the VSC conglomerate to be sexy in any way. The gift card likely doesn’t cover shipping and may or may not have a min order requirement so I’m not going to get too excited about that yet, either. Hopefully it won’t have a lot of restrictions in tiny print on the back. If I have to drag myself to the mall to use it on a couple pair of uncomfortable panties I will be somewhat un-thrilled. I’m kind of in a bad mood about it anyway since they billed early and I have no shipping info at all yet.

  16. Any coupon codes for non new subscribers?

  17. Nothing at VS fits me (unless they started selling plus sizes when I wasn’t looking) and I have tons of lotions already so this is not awesome for me.

    However I totally get why they would include VS stuff in a Feb box. So I hardly hold it against them.

    • I’m plus size, too (pear-shaped 18/20), and have recently discovered their stretch cotton high cuts in size XL fit me beautifully. Quality is nice too. Soft and hold their shape well.

      • Alas, I am larger than an 18/20. πŸ™

        But it’s cool that you can shop there, though! πŸ™‚

      • What she said ^, depending on the style, the XL can be quite roomy! Also, a lot of PINK apparel runs huge. I am a 14/16 and I can fit into a lot of styles in medium, sometimes even small.

    • You could grab a couple lip balms or put it towards a perfume! (Not that us subscription addicts *need* more beauty items, but still.) πŸ˜‰

    • I’m right there with you! Couldn’t even wear it in high school. I love the body washes and body sprays they used to sell at Bath and Body Works though. Now they only sell them at VS.

      • Did you know you can use your VS credit card at Bath and Body Works? They somehow or another are together as companies.

  18. I’m “blah”. I got the box for something like $23, so I’m not too picky. Body lotion is as unexciting as things go, OTOH, I’ll eventually use it (though Target has provided me with lotion for quite a while and I don’t suffer from dry skin). The $20 card would be great if there isn’t a minimum. THey have something at VS that my daughter wants, I can’t remember what, so I’m sure she’ll be thrilled to use it.

  19. I haven’t shopped at VS since I was in my twenties.

    • I’m in my 40s and still like their classic t-shirt bras and sleep shirts.

  20. I just got my 10 dollar bday gift card from them so ill for sure use it with this! Looking good…..

  21. I’m confused why a bunch of people got shipping emails last week? I still haven’t gotten mine. I also got my shipping notification a week later than lots of people for the January box. I did the 6 month deal and then I started having late shipping notifications…so annoying.

    • I also did the 6 month deal and Im getting the boxes on time. I should expect my Feb tomorrow. Are you in the east coast? I know people on the West coast were having delays.

      • I’m in Massachusetts, which makes it weirder.

        • I agree! Im in WV and the box ships from NY, so you should be closer than me. Hopefully you would get it soon.
          I just checked my email and mine is at the PO and picking up today. First time getting a box without seeing the full spoilers

          • Please share spoilers when you pick it up! I’m anxious to see what else is in this box

          • Oh please share spoilers !

        • I’m in MA too and no shipping activity yet…..I rarely get shipping emails just track them through Fedex…..

    • I got a shipping email on Thursday and it says that my label was created or printed on Wednesday. However, there hasn’t been any movement since then.

      • Vanessa you are not the only one with that issue. My label was created on 01/27/2016 and nothing since. PS even sent me an email to let me know that box had shipped. I thought they just singled me out, since I had been communicating with them since Dec. about broken items. LOL

  22. My Feb box is heading to my postal office today so hopefully Ill get my box tomorrow πŸ™‚
    Im excited about the spoilers, I use VS lotions and I been wanting to get more undies from there, hopefully its a GC either way Im happy.

  23. So NOT excited by this reveal. I don’t like VS and don’t use their products. Definitely will be swapping both of these. πŸ™

    • I agree, I cannot stand VS in general and their beauty products in particular. I may be a beauty snob, but I find the scents are always sickly sweet and uninspired. So many better products out there. This will go up for swap for sure.

  24. This lotion is amazing! I got a sample of it from VS in the Black Friday GWP bag. I have almost bought it a few times. The full size is $18 (I hope we get the full size), and I never go through with the purchase. It smells amazing. I don’t know about this reward card but the ones they were giving out last month were just for dollars off of any purchase, no minimum (that was the secret reward card). I shop there as often as I can get away with it so this is just like money in my pocket.

    This is not the cheap $6 lotions that they are always doing the promos on, like 6 for $24 or whatever. It’s from their higher end line of products.

    I’m so excited!!

    • I also love coconut so I can’t wait to try this lotion!

  25. I’m 100% done with Popsugar after their HORRIBLE customer service. I got my sister a gift box for November where they sent the broken candles. She still has not received a replacement item and most recently they said they would not be sending anything (after months of saying they would) and then offered her a $15 refund…oh wait did I mention this was a gift subscription? They have really gone downhill

    • Honestly, I understand the unhappiness. I too recevied a shattered Stocking Stuffer box with a broken Missoni, shattered Frame and broken Jewelry box. I reached out, was strung along via email. Then i reached out daily on facebook. They did promise to ship. I asked for a tracking number. then they were out of stock, offered a refund. I denied the refund and gave options from lots of past boxes that I would be okay with for substitutions which they could pull from. they did, sent me the tracking # and I will have it later this week. While frustrating and yes i had to do they work, they followed through and in the end, if i receive the items i gave as for options, ill be happy.

    • I am considering canceling after this month. I have sent multiple emails about not wanting to get billed early and never got a response. When I did get billed early I sent more emails, pretty much begging, someone to respond….still nothing on their end. I am usually pretty happy with the boxes, but the customer service just turns me off the entire thing. πŸ™

    • I am still waiting on my replacement candle. They blamed the delay because of the holidays.
      I don’t care if aliens came, as a business they should have their crap together.

  26. Not excited. Their are better body products out there. At least its a gift card that can be of use. Hopefully!!

  27. I wonder what “reward card” means… is it a gift card? or a coupon? Either way, I love VS so I am happy with this spoiler!

    • It might not matter because, unlike a lot of stores, Victoria’s Secret lets you use at least three promo codes per order.

    • I’m wondering the same thing–is it $20 off a purchase of any amount, or is it the kind they give out at stores, like $20 of a $75 purchase?

    • I’m curious about this too….I’m certainly not in the VS demographics, but if I can buy toiletries I’ll be able to use it. But I don’t want to have to spend $X to receive the $20 off. To me that’s just a coupon.

    • The reward card is equal to a gift card. No minimum purchase. Just $20 free bucks to spend at Victoria’s secret. Pretty cool! I shop at victoria’s secret an awful lot and i’ve received many reward cards from them. They are legit!

  28. Hmm…I’ve never actually bought anything from there. Also, it looks like the lotion is tested on animals, which sucks πŸ™

    • Hi, just wondering, how do u know if this product is tested on animals ? I try to stay away from products that for sure test on animals. Thanks

      • Usually if you do a google search, you can get a good idea. I also check the FAQ on company websites, though sometimes they seem misleading. There’s also specific sites, like Leaping Bunny, that list a lot of companies and say if they’re cruelty free.

        • Thats super disappointing. I was very excited to use this, but i cannot in good conscience. I know many sub boxes like this, glossybox and beautyfix so not claim to be cruelty free, so i know i will run into some, but victoria secrets is such a big company. I dont understand why animal testing is allowed at all.

          • Yeah, it’s so ubiquitous, it’s depressing. I know with Popsugar I run the risk of getting items tested on animals though, so I can’t totally hold it against them, but it’s still disapointing.

          • if a product is sold in china it is tested on animals. there are laws in place where you cant sell a beauty product unless its tested on animals.

      • Unfortunately beauty companies are required to pay for testing done by the government labs in countries like China and Brazil before their cosmetics can be sold in the country. This is why companies like Victoria’s Secret, Mary Kay, Avon, etc. that where previously animal cruelty free have been moved off the list by PETA . Hopefully these countries lift these requirements soon!

    • That’s a bummer, not that I was excited about that lotion anyway. That’s two months in a row now with animal tested products in them (Chapstick in January). Don’t see myself renewing this sub.

    • I wonder how they test body lotion on animals. On what animals exactly? Do any of them have skin that actually resembles human skin? Do they shave them off their fur first? I may have to look this one up.

      • They do stuff like pack it into an animals eye and leave it there until it burns their eyeball, real horrible stuff.

    • Not only that, but VS uses prison labor to make their products (as seen on Orange is the New Black).

  29. Can’t wait, this looks like an excellent month for PopSugar. πŸ™‚

  30. Just received the email! Not overly thrilled! I am on lotion overload right now and I have moved on from Victoria Secret! My daughter will be happy to recieve both of those gift cards!

  31. I can already tell I’ll love this box. I have a weakness for VS & already have another $60 in rewards I’ve been saving? The February box last year was my favorite, I’m hoping the rest of the items in this box are a big win too! And the $20 reward is as good as cash in my eyes so it’s like this box was half off for me?

  32. Now THIS is the PSMH I know and love.

    • Yay! ❀️

  33. I’m disappointed with this spoiler – VS body products feel cheap to me and usually full of chemicals : (

    • me too. never excited about body lotion and VS makes it even more disappointing. i loved Jan and was hoping the winning streak would continue. Is a reward card the same as a gift card?
