POPSUGAR Must Have Box Review & Coupon - November 2013

Michael Stars Scarf – Value $42

This is by far my favorite item in the box! Popsugar described it as “ubersoft” and I’d say that’s 100% accurate! This scarf is so cozy I haven’t taken it off since I got it!

Lands End Canvas Wine Tote – Value $14.99

Strawberry & Blackcurrant Cream Preserves – Value $6

Bare Fruit Apple Chips in Sea Salt Crunch – Value $1

Verdict: This box came in a little under the $100 promised value (I’m guessing POPSUGAR counts the $30 coupon code – but I don’t since you have to spend money to use it). I’m very happy with this box though – I LOVE the scarf, and I’ll use everything else in this box for myself or as a gift, so the value is great for me.

What did you think of the November POPSUGAR Must Have Box?

  1. Hi, does anyone have the Canvas Pop coupon code if they aren’t using it, I’d love to!

  2. I love the scarf, Naughty candle, and the soap. The smell made me leary to use it because I was worried about smelling like a tree but tried it on a stay-at-home day and now it’s my go to bar in the shower. The smell doesn’t stay on you at all but overall I smell better when I use it than when I use Dove. Even sweating, I smell less sweaty – no joke. I am a convert. I wish the promo was for Soap and Paper instead of Popcanvas because I am definitely buying their soap. Or Illume, I would buy the Nice candle. I may still buy it.

    • If you aren’t planning on using your canvaspop coupon, I would love to! Let me know…thanks!

  3. I can’t help comparing this box to the November Blush Box. For $10 more you get so much more. Can you please review the Nov Blush Box… was horrible and I think people are unhappy. imo pop sugar has them all beat.

  4. I am definitely glad that I cancelled this one. It used to be just absolutely amazing and fit the pricetag perfectly. Nowadays it feels like I’m getting a box of regiftable things, and I don’t really have that many people to give this to. If this was a bit cheaper, I wouldn’t think twice, but.. I don’t know. I’m never too happy about it anymore. Here, looking at these pictures, I don’t feel like I’m missing out, and I always feel that usually! haha. That means it was a wise choice, to cancel it.

  5. This was my first PopSugar box! I got the Nice candle, and it definitely smells like BBW Warm Vanilla Sugar. I like it. So happy with my first box!!

  6. I received my very first PopSugar box last week, and on my birthday no less! I love a surprise! I received the cream and black scarf and it sure is cozy, but a bit to large to use a real scarf, it’s more like a wrap. And per my boyfriend’s suggestion, I’ll be using mine as a sarong on my next tropical vacation! It made a cozy blanket on the plane ride I had to take for work this week. I got the Naughty candle and it reminds me of a men’s cologne. Love it! It was a bit too similar to the pine soap, but they are both festive and ’tis the season. The wine bag, meh. Regift. I got peach polish remover, haven’t tried it yet but smells good! The apple crisps were tasty and the preserves are REALLY yummy. I like the canvas certificate, but wish they would have sprung for $7 extra dollars so that I don’t have to dig into my own pocket to use it. And that’s for their smallest 10×10 print. Still cool though. I can’t say I was over the moon about my first box, but it sure is fun and the scarf alone was worth it, even if I wouldn’t buy it from a store.

  7. Hey if anyone isn’t going to use the canvaspop please let me know!! I want to order a large canvas print of a photo. Thanks.

    • I am not going to use my pop canvas if you want it you can have it ! Email me at [email protected]

  8. I got the same variations that you did, Liz. So happy with the Naughty candle, as I usually buy on the sweeter side, and this one is so…idk “my boyfriend just stepped out of the shower” smell! Same goes for the soap, so I’m happy to change it up. The nail polish wipes are SUPER fragrant and work very well, though I will say they are a little messy. I’m curious to know what other colors the scarf came in!!

  9. Mine came yesterday as well. I got the “nice” candle – was hoping for naughty. It does smell like B&BW warm vanilla – not my favorite, but will make a nice gift. I’m using the tote as a gift along with the wine that I bought that with the $50 coupon that we got with our November Stitch Fix (I looked around that website enough that I got 6 bottles of wine for $24 including shipping with that coupon!). I got the lavendar nail polish remover – lavendar is not my favorite scent normally – didn’t even open them just tossed them in my travel make-up bag for emergency use. So sad the Pop Canvas code isn’t unique so I can’t trade it – I’ll never use it. I’ve decided to put the value on the box on what I’d pay for the items if I were to buy them individually (I don’t buy anything full price – lol) – I put this one right at $40 – $45 so I consider that a win since half the fun is just being surprised.

  10. Hmm my first box, it was okay, wasn’t thrilled with its contents, wish my first box was one of the past boxes like August or October, hehe maybe December’s will be better.

  11. I love this month’s POPSUGAR! My box has the “Nice” candle. I thought the scarf was a cream/black color, but mine is gray and black. I love it! The nail polish remover came in the “Spring Fresh” scent. I can’t wait to eat that yummy jam and caramel chips.

    Still waiting for my NM box!

    • i got the same box as you excatly . Not thrilled it was my first box . Scarf was black and grey . Nice candle . Spring Fresh remover and they WORK which blew my mind that you dont need acetone .

      • Have you tried the nail polish remover from Butter London? It worked really well for me.

  12. I got my November box today (my first) but haven’t gotten my Neiman Marcus Box ( *sad face*) . I was really pleased with my Must Have Box. I got a different color scarf but otherwise my box was the same.

    Thanks for the recommendation!

  13. Liz, I just wonder if you have the same problem I have with the UPS man, Fed EX man and the postman lugging boxes up daily to your door and looking at you as if you have lost your mind with all these boxes!!!! Besides get sub. Boxes I also make jewelry and scrapbook and get supplies for those. I can just imagine your doorstep, and mailbox daily!!
    : ). : ). : ). : ). Have fun and thanks for all the reviews! Love it!

    • Haha – sometimes they have to use a dolly – and that’s a very good day for me! 🙂 I need to make sure I tip VERY well this holiday season!

  14. We got the same variations! I hear the Nice candle smells like B&BW Warm Vanilla Sugar. I was hoping for it but I got Naughty and I’m SO glad I did. I just bought a WVS candle from B&BW to gift and now I’m LOVING my Naughty candle.

  15. This was my favorite box so far!! Loved the scarf – I put it on right away and it was perfect with the very basic black t-shirt dress I was wearing – dressed that right up! I actually saw a woman wearing hers on the train this evening and was so tempted to say “PopSugar!!”

    The soap is a bit too piney for me to use as a regular soap but will be great as a guest soap. I have the Nice candle, it’s a very light scent. It says vanilla, spun sugar, and coconut, but none of those notes really jump out at me, at least not unlit.

    Overall, a great box and was super pleased with it. My Neiman Marcus box came tonight; can’t wait to see your review!
