POPSUGAR Must Have Box January 2018 Box Spoiler #2

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

We have the second spoiler for the January 2018 POPSUGAR Must Have box!

Each box will include:

Farmacy Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer – Retail Value $45

If you aren’t familiar with Farmacy, it’s an amazing ingredient-conscious skincare brand with fab packaging!

From POPSUGAR:

Salvage your skin with this hydrating, weightless moisturizer. It’s packed with superfoods, hyaluronic acid, and honey. It’s light enough to wear under makeup and moisturizing enough to keep dry skin at bay.

The wooden lid is magnetized to hold the metal spatula in place, too!

(POPSUGAR sent me this product early so I can answer any questions you might have about it.)

The formula is light, creamy, and absorbs almost instantly. It was gentle on my skin and perfect hydration before applying makeup – I’m a fan!

In case you missed the first spoiler, this box will also include:

Ban.do Best Year Ever Wall Calendar – Retail Value $20

No excuses for not fulfilling your dreams this year. You’ll smile while turning the pages of your brightly hued Ban.do calendar that includes stickers and playful illustrations for every month. It’s hole-punched so you can easily hang it on your wall, which makes it easy to stay organized and motivated all year-long.

(POPSUGAR sent me this spoiler early so I can answer any questions you might have about it.)

It’s a 12-month calendar that measures 8 in. x 23 in and it has…STICKERS!

Here is a look at all the artwork included in the calendar:

I will definitely be saving these for wall art! And here’s a picture to give you a better sense of scale:

  1. Full spoilers with pics on the forum.

  2. I resubscribed but it will be for February 😓😔 really wanted this box, love the calendar and the farmacy

  3. Dang. I was going to purchase for the cream but wasn’t expecting it to sell out so quickly. I didn’t like the calendar so maybe it’s for the best. I’ll try and swap for the cream.

  4. Yes it is showing February….they usually send an email when they are selling out?? So not sure?

  5. I want this box so bad, how is it already sold out???

    • Ladies, I’m not seeing what your seeing about January being sold out. I resubbed a couple of days ago…. I just went to their site using Chrome and it still says get your January box….. worth you checking again!!! 🙂

      • I checked it yesterday and it said “Get your February box”, but now it’s saying “get your January box”. So apparently they added more. It’s possible that there were enough people that were turned off by something in the spoilers that they cancelled making more room. I cancelled recently, but that lotion makes me want to resubscribe.

        • ….. that moisturizer will likely be heavenly!!! I have loved all the Farmacy products I’ve tried so far…….. February and December are usually knock it out of the park boxes for PS!! I decided that there is much more good than bad with PS – and I love sharing what I can’t use so I’m going to hang in there for the foreseeable future…….. 🙂

      • Someone from the forum subbed for January and even though it’s says Jan she was told that her first box would be February which was what showed after she subscribed.

        • It is showing February….

  6. Looks like it sold out, they are advertising February now 🙁

    • It’s saying January again. Hurry and get it

  7. I am looking forward to this box! I need another moisturizer like I need a hole in the head, but this makes my ‘interested in trying’ list so still excited. And a cute wall calendar? I will use that too! Can’t wait to see what other (hopefully useful) items make it to the box!

  8. I waited too long for the box… now it says February box 🙁 I’m so sad I wanted that moisturizer.

    • They usually send an email stating there are only so many boxes left?? I am really surprised.

  9. My shipping email arrived!!

  10. I’m very interested and excited about this spoiler. I think I may be able to use it.

    I have roseacea and very sensitive skin. I usually refer to beautypedia for dermatologist reviewed skincare. Does anyone know of any other sites where the reviews are by dermatologists?

  11. How much is it?
    Maybe I am missing it in the spoiler review?
    I go to link and it not say unless I suppose you sign on first.

  12. Hey I want to hear good or bad about products and the services of subscription box companies. I don’t want to hear about politics of any kind here.

    • According to the “rules” that post should have been deleted anyway as it really had nothing to do with Popsugar or the site at all. It’s only purpose was to compliment Liz and insult our President. Obviously the rules don’t apply to all “parties”.

      • D., I appreciate your response. I come here to find out about subscription box companies, good or bad. The comment below was political and stated that let’s not start the year off negative, but then the comment does insult our President. Isn’t that being negative? If I want to debate politics there are political forums to go to. Not to mention people and their views can be insulted in these contexts and that’s not appropriate. Let’s stick to subscription boxes and their products, not politics. I come to MSA because it is my go to for subscription boxes and products.

        • Agreed! Thanks Jeanette.

    • I didn’t see any post about politics. Someone mentioned her opinion on a characteristic of someone’s personality. But this seems like it’s a big deal for you. Hopefully you’re not triggered further and can enjoy the site. Have a great New Year.

      • Angie, I don’t see what the President’s disposition has to do with subscription box companies or their products.

  13. This is my day moisturizer! It’s so light and yet hydrating. Unless the rest of the box wows me, I’ll just be scouring the board for swaps.

  14. Man!!! Now I may have to resubscribe. The first spoiler reassured my reason for cancelling, but now… Lets see what third spoiler brings.

  15. I’m new to Popsugar – when do they usually ship?

    • It depends. Every month they ship at a different time. Sometimes I get it the first week of the month and other times I get it the last day of the month or anytime in between. Don’t ask me why they don’t ship the same time every month.

      • Thanks!

  16. I love my ban.do organizer and I think the celndar is cute. Skincare always gets me extra excited though!

  17. I love Farmacy Beauty products! I’ve been really wanting to try this moisturizer but keep forgetting every time I need more moisturizer– my local Sephora carries only a couple of Farmacy items. Now no excuses, hooray!

  18. Yay! Does anyone know when I should be billed for the January box? I haven’t been yet, but I resubscribed in December, yet my account shows an inactive subscription…?

    • I was billed yesterday, if that helps. But my subscription has been active since November.

    • Nicole, I was billed on the 2nd this month. I would definitely email them especially since your sub is saying inactive. I have always gotten a quick response from customer service usually within 24 hours.

    • When you go into your account; what does the credit amount me? I have a credit of 1. Does that mean anything?
      Thanks-

  19. I just listed this in the swap site. I’m looking for the gray and white napkins from the pop sugar box or the glitter coasters. Anyone for a swap?

    • I have the glitter coasters from the December box. Will you swap those for the farmacy moisturizer ?

    • I also have the glitter coasters!!

    • I have the napkins! What are you willing to swap for them?

  20. I have been enjoying a sample of the Farmacy cream and it’s the best! I actually was considering buying a full size one at $45, that’s how much I like it. So guess I’m finally going to subscribe to popsugar.

  21. YES. This makes up for that terrible calendar. lol

    • Jenn: !!!!!! ⭐️ 🙌 ❤️

    • Liz, if you’re reading this, maybe you could ask any company considering a calendar to schedule it so we actually HAVE it when the year starts…? Whether or not it’s “terrible” will of course be in the eye of the beholder, but the timing definitely is!

      • I will pass that feedback along!

  22. High quality skincare that covers the price of the box? Yes please!

  23. I received the farmacy sheetmasks in my boxycharm and absolutely fell in love. I’ve been purchasing them ever since. I know this will be awesome as well. I’m just not sure if it will be moisturizing enough for my super dry skin according to the recviews. I might put it up for swap. But I’m so excited for the January box. I hope the other items are as good as farmacy!

  24. I’m so excited for this! And l looked up the ingredients and it has nothing I’m allergic to which is great! (Since wheat, oats, barley, and mango show up in a LOT of skincare products in one form or another!)
    I have just been using various serums and essences, but since I turned 30 it’s been like BAM now your skin is dry! So I’ve been looking for a moisturizer.

  25. I’m a fan of that moisturizer and that brand. I’ve tried it before and it is a cream gel hybrid type of moisturizer with little beads in it that smells ever so faintly of honey and not much else.

    • Hey Christine, thanks for sharing that. My question was going to be the scent, I don’t mind a mild scent and wanted to know what it was like. It also seems like a moisturizer that will be good for some of these summer days.

  26. I hope this is still in stock when I get paid on the 12th so I can subscribe just for the January box!

  27. The night cream didn’t obsorb into my skin at all. I’m hoping this formula will work for me. I’m going to find a sample of it so I can swap the full size if it doesn’t suit my skin.

    • You can always go to Sephora and get a free sample! Usually they give you enough for a few uses too so you can decide if you like it.

  28. Thanks for the spoiler! Just signed up for this! I was on the fence with the calendar–love band.o but don’t super need another calendar. BUT I saw the moisturizer at Sephora and was immediately interested in it.

  29. I don’t get popsugar anymore but would love this moisturizer! If you want to swap yours click on my name!

  30. 2nd spoiler is better than the first!

    • I agree….so far after December they seem to be improving.

  31. Moisturizer is not scented. I got this in my play by Sephora box and it’s amaong. And it has little beads that dissolve and it’s amazing. Imma get this box just for the moisturizer.! It’s amazing and very soufflé lightweight and feels great and isn’t tacky ☺️

    • Is it amazing or what?! 😛

  32. Is the moisturizer scented?

  33. I already posted this on the forum: if you want to swap your Farmacy product, please PM me … my skin is dry and northern winters are a killer.

    • I live in New England and own this moisturizer. It is pretty lightweight. I find it too light for the winter. I used it and had to supplement it with something heavier.

      • Hmm, good to know, thank you.

      • Yes, I agree. I would say it is best suited for normal/combo skin types rather than normal/dry or dry skin types. Farmacy makes other moisturizers in their line that are heavier than this one.

      • Good to know – I have combo skin and usually only moisturize after showering at night, but I can tell my skin is a little drier now with the winter and was looking for a lightweight cream to apply under my makeup in the AM to supplement my usual routine. I may purchase just for the cream!

  34. I’m not into the calendar (at all) but the reviews on this product intrigue me. If I like the rest of the spoilers, I might buy the box. If not, I’ll see if I can swap for it.

  35. I love farmacy. The container was so pretty I saved it. I’m going to cover the bottom with Washi tape.

  36. This product is not worth the lovely packaging.

    LIST OF INGREDIENTS:
    Water, Glycereth-26, Glycerin, C13-15 Alkane, Echinacea Purpurea Root Extract, Honey Extract, Propolis Extract, Royal Jelly Extract, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Theobroma Grandflorum Seed Butter, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Camellia Japonica Seed Oil, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Allantoin, Melia Azadirachta Leaf Extract, Lactobacillus/Soybean Ferment Extract, Melia Azadirachta Flower Extract, Imperata Cylindrica Root Extract, Viscum Album (Mistletoe) Leaf Extract, Solanum Melongena (Eggplant) Fruit Extract, Ocimum Balsilicum (Basil) Flower/Leaf Extract, Coccinia Indica Fruit Extract, Adenosine, Betaine, Capryloyl Glycerin/Sebacic Acid Copolymer, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Flower Extract, Corallina Officinalis Extract, Ocimum Sanctum Leaf Extract, Eclipta Prostrata Extract, Flavor, Sorbitan Olivate, Sucrose Stearate, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Disodium Edta, Glyceryl Polyacrylate, Agar, Calcium Alginate, Mica, Iron Oxide (Ci 77492), Propanediol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Methyl Gluceth-20, Diheptyl Succinate, Butylene Glycol, Carbomer, Hydroxyacetophenone, Tromethamine, Cetearyl Olivate, Alcohol Denat., Caprylyl Glycol.

    • What ingredients don’t you like? It looks pretty good to me overall…

      • Yeah, me too. I don’t get it.

        • It’s probably the myth of water being the first ingredient = price inflated formula. I don’t personally agree with that, but I might actually be a bit concerned about the broad spectrum preservative system. The alcohol denat seems too far down the list for broad spectrum protection, and it also looks like the main preservative is the radish root ferment (it’s Leucidal, which has recently failed some microbe tests, so it makes me gun shy).

          • whoops, soybean ferment! I believe it’s still a Leucidal-like preservative, but I need to research more.

      • Same here that’s a good looking list to me haha.

    • Just because it’s a list of ingredients you can’t pronounce doesn’t mean they’re bad.

    • Can you explain what is so bad? It doesn’t look so bad to me.

  37. YaY! I loved the night cream we got last year and I am very excited to try the honey drop

  38. Oh perfect! I really needed a moisturizer and hadn’t made up my mind which one to get. Yay PSMH!

    • I’m really happy with the Vichy one I got in the Amazon box, and used my $20 credit to purchase (it was $3ish after the credit from buying the box). I have extremely dry skin, and it works great all day. It does smell kind of like hairspray, but that fades.

  39. yes yes yes! i love farmacy beauty!!! i can not wait for this box now 😊

  40. any updates on any of the missing boxes from them?

    • I finally received my 2 December boxes on the 28th, after they sat in Sparks, NV for 3 weeks. I love this spoiler, but hated the calendar. And so it goes with PopSugar.

    • Still haven’t received my box. Horrible company. Liz must be getting more than free boxes because she hasn’t covered this screw up at all. Very disappointed in this site and the sad down hill of popsugar. I purchased my box November 24, 2017. Emailed customer service, no response. Liz either do a follow up to the numerous issues with this subscription or admit you work directly for them . Or is it all fake news.

      • I know Liz has a lot of influence with the sub companies because she has so many followers but I think it is a bit (a lot) unfair to blame her for not doing something about slow deliveries. Some of the things she has done to help followers were above and beyond as far as I am concerned. Let’s don’t start the year off with negativity we get enough of that from our president.

        • Sounds like you might be equating “negativity” with “reality”.

      • I hope you and others who have paid for and not received your boxes in a timely manner will get some resolution from someone. This site promotes this box heavily, so you certainly have a right to voice your concern here, especially since the problem seems to be widespread. And if you haven’t already, you might try inquiring on Popsugar’s Facebook page. Some subs will respond more quickly on FB…I think because the complaint is more visible to the public there. Good luck!

  41. I wonder if this box will go on sale? I need it! I love that moisturizer-it basically covers cost of the box…Gahhhh. Need/want.

  42. Great box so far. Glad I resubbed!

  43. Great spoiler….I love their products and very excited to try this one….nice job Popsugar!

  44. I have never tried Farmacy but this moisturizer has been on my wish list for some time. Very nice. And I actually like the calendar as well. Some people at work today were making fun of me since I have 4 calendars at my desk. 4 paper calendars. I use google calendars as well as Outlook but I still love my paper calendars.

  45. So excited to see this brand again in popsugars box! Cant wait for my box

  46. I really hope there will be a subscription deal for Galentines day! I can’t stop loving this box!

  47. Yes!!!! I love this item! Germany & Drunk Elephant are my favorite skincare brands!
